Speaking Abstractly

Speaking Abstractly

Sapphire Teebrook was away for a while due to real life illness and so the Glitterati August and September group gifts were late in coming. To thank everyone for their patience and the many well wishes she got, there are now five new gifts out at the Glitterati main-store. Three of these gifts are free to all, no group required. Two are group tag required (the August and September group gifts).

The group is 100L to join but there are about 80 past group gifts to pick up, several of which have been blogged before [HERE] and [HERE] for example.

In the picture above, Astrid is wearing two of the free to all gifts — the Julia dress in abstract with the Joyce heels. You don’t need a group to pick these up, just buy them for 0L. The dress comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh for Maitreya and Belleza. I’m not sure how long they will be out, so be sure to hurry over and pick them up.

One Magical, Misty Morning

One Magical, Misty Morning
Hello there, FabFree Readers!  I’m Kathryn Vayandar, one of the two newest bloggers for Fabulously Free, but you can call me Kat.  A long time Second Life resident (8 years…..practically an SL senior citizen, but don’t get the walker ready yet!), I’m a dedicated bargain hunter and I’m excited to share my shopping adventures with you.

Today, my puppy and I took a stroll on a quiet country road in The Forest, an enchanted woodland sim that hosts a shopping event each month.  While Ripley wandered off, happily sniffing out bunny trails, I paused, enjoying the misty morning light, clad in the first Fabulous Find I’d like to share with you.  Knowing the day would quickly warm up, I chose to wear the cute, knotted top from Hottest Fashion’s gift for Third Life members.  The Melanie Set also includes a pair of white, high-waist shorts, but since the morning air was brisk, I donned a pair of sleek, leather pants from Greane Design which I discovered on The Marketplace for only 69 lindens.  My comfy Tawny Sandals from Slipper Originals and The Shadow Lord Choker (a free gift from Ronsem) blogged here by Love Trill, completed my ensemble.  The necklace is an older gift, but it is one of my favorite casual pieces and is still available, so I thought I’d mention it in case you might be interested.

Oh dear, I think I need to rescue the rabbits from Ripley…..until next time, happy shopping!

~ Kat

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give me a great set of heels and I’ll find the perfect dress to go with it! And I fell in love with this set of strappy stilettos from G&D Italian Style which can be yours totally FREE. You just need a group space, as the group is FREE to join, and once you don the group tag, you can pick up this strappy set of burgundy heels FREE. Once you open your gift, you’ll find a set of heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

I’m still finding 10L deals at the Indian Summer Cart Wash that I just can’t resist… and this beautiful dress by Aleutia is no exception. 10L gets you a two pack… same color but two textures. You’ll get the texture shown, plus an additional dress with the all over print pattern in the box as well. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes, plus a fitmesh size to complete the package. All for just the single 10L price. There are lots of colors on the cart, so stop by even if burgundy isn’t your color… you’re bound to find a color to suit your tastes.

I stopped by the Cart Wash today and picked up this Tabby Dress from the Little Bat Cart. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and for just 10 little Linden you get a color change hud with 8 choices… making this like 8 dresses in one for your 10L!

I then made a beeline for Meva where I picked up the very first of 14 gifts to come… my beautiful black bangles🙂 Every day you can pick up a new group gift as part of the giving with your group tag. The group fee is 100L but for 14 gifts the next two weeks, that fee will definitely pay for itself. I’m including the gift calendar picture below to show you what will be available.

Fall for Vintage

Fall for Vintage

The Cart Wash Sale is well under way and I just fell in love with this Vintage set in brown from Orquidea. These are applier pieces that come separately for just 10L each, and also include a system layer for non-mesh avatars as well.

10L will get you the shirt in a system layer and appliers for Maitreya or Belleza. An additional 10L will get you the jeans in the same, with the addition of sculpty cuffs at the ankles for a pretty and realistic look. If you prefer shorts, there are shorts also available. I’m sporting the set in brown, but there was a pretty set available in red as well!

One Fine Day

One Fine Day

Have you checked out the Indian Summer Cart Wash Sale yet?! I stopped by this morning and couldn’t help but pick up a couple of beautiful finds for myself.

My first stop was at the Ghee cart, where I picked up my simply beautiful silk Sari dress in Sugar. There are a lot of colors out and at only 10L each, you may just be tempted to pick up each and every color! You’ll get all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. I was in love!

I also stopped by the Roped Passion’s cart, where I picked up my Nani sandals. These beautiful flowered sandals also come in several colors, though I nabbed the pink to match my dress. These too are just 10L each and you’ll get a pair to fit Slink or Maitreya feet in each box. What a deal!

Daisy of a Deal

Daisy

I have two very pretty FREE group gifts to share with you today. The group join fees are FREE too, making both these gifts absolutely FREE other than a group space and your time to go pick them up.

My pretty dress with its lace cut out for the stomach is by EvelineInTheBox and is the current offered group gift by the creator. It is yours FREE when you don your group tag. You’ll get it in all the standard mesh sizes, plus Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits.

I also picked up this beautiful mesh hair in soft waves called Daisy at Entwined. You’ll get the full fatpack of hair FREE with your group tag (again the join fee is FREE too!) making this a steal for a beautiful hair. Don’t miss out on this pretty style!

Sweet Memories

Snapshot_005
With all of the excitement going on this weekened with the Designer 2.0 program launch and the opening of the new Fabulously Free in SL Info Hub, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to sneak a post in, but I am glad I found a little bit of time to share this bit of news!

My Caboodle Shaleen Dress in the blue floral print (available in mesh XXS-L sizes) can be found as a free Getsuga Sim Hunt prize along with the ATTIC Elfman Vintage Camera shown.  There are a few different stores  participating and I believe there are 12 prizes in total, but you can find this information along with an example of the hunt icon at the landing point at the Getsuga Sim! All prizes are free and this hunt will run until the 16th of September.

Another thing I wanted to mention is the Glam Affair Skin Applier called Viktoria that I am wearing today on my Catwa Helena Mesh Head.  I picked this beautiful applier up in an asia skin tone (normally lighter than I usually wear, but I really like it!) on Friday for 50L as a Fifty Linden Friday offer and I just checked before publishing this post (Sunday night) to make sure it is still there for anyone who may still be interested.  This is a time sensitive offer and may not be available.

It’s Fear The Walking Dead night – Gotta run!

Wild Thing!

Wild Thing

I’m in love with the newest Sn@tch fishing prize! This one includes system and applier leggings (in three styles) and a full fatpack of different “wild” mesh tops that are super sexy. If you already have a 7 Seas fishing rod (the cost is 100L for the casual fishing rod) you can re-use it to fish for this amazing 22 piece outfit that also includes omega applier lipstick, arm bangles, and mesh gold eyes as well as these killer shoes I’m wearing in the photo above. The heels will fit Slink, Maitreya, or Belleza mid feet for all your mesh feet needs. The mesh tops come in all the standard mesh sizes.

I’m including a copy of the vendor advertisement below to give you a peek at a few of the other halter top options. Aren’t they just wild?!
