Flowers & Paws

Flowers and Paws

Evening FabFree! It’s been a busy weekend for me, but I dropped in to share some special treats with you… a little bit here… a little bit there! It all adds up to something colorful!

This round of Hairology wraps up June 30th, so if you haven’t stopped by to get all the FREE SLB13 cake gifts, you should hurry. Tonight, I’m showing you the gift from Iconic. It is a high and sleek, mesh pony tail that is really stylish. It’s a full fatpack of colors, so don’t miss out.

My mesh LBGT Pride shirt by GetDressed is a lucky 9L find on the marketplace. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and its own alpha if you are using a standard system body. I liked the loose fit and the unique texture on the material of the traditional tank top cut.

My pretty manicure will only set you back 10L at the Cart Wash Sale. You still have time to get in on the goods at the Cart Wash! This manicure is by New.Monday and called “Flower Power”. It features flowers on your nails. For just 10L you get 3 colors for Slink nails. There are a couple of other pretty manicure sets out that you’ll want to check out!

I also picked up my Pride paws body paint at the Cart Wash Sale courtesy of the same Cart. New.Monday has set out the Pride Paws in either a top or bottom layer for just 10L each. So if you want only one or you want both, it’s up to you! You have the flexibility! This body paint is system layer only, but definitely worth rocking you system body for!

My shorts are another great find at the Cart Wash Sale (I told you I was giving you the goods this evening!). You’ll find this great pair of high waist shorts at the Vicarious Youth Cart for just 10L. They come in distressed Denim. I found that they ran a little on the small side, so I did have to wear a larger-than-my-usual size, but they are still a great fit!

Crossbones

Snapshot_001

Good morning, FabFree! I’m feeling my Gothic side this morning, and I have just the FREE goodies to help you feel your Gothic side too! We going to make a two different stops and put together a fun FREE outfit.

First, head to Kreepshow Kouture, and slap the two Midnight Mania Boards. Both of them are FREE and do not require a group. It only takes 50 slaps to lock these babies down, and from what I saw yesterday, they lock down multiple times a day (unless that has changed since then). I’m showing you the Crossbone Cami, which is one of the two prizes you can win when the boards lock down.

Once you win the Cami, unboxing this jumper is quite a treat. It comes in all the standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Maitreya, and Slink and its own alpha is included as well.

My FREE Septum piercing is courtesy of Krova and is an SLB13 gift at We❤ RP. It was quite large when I put it on, making me believe it was intended for male avatars (it was also silver) but I happily discovered that it was modifiable. To get the look I wanted, I sized it down with some editing, added a gold tint to it, made it full bright to give it a bit of a “sheen” and voila! You may wish to make it other colors!

My necklace is yet another SLB13 gift FREE from We❤ RP… this time from Souzou Eien. This lacy Renaissance Pearls necklace added a feminine touch to my Gothic attire that I thought was just perfect. 😉

A Gypsy’s Tale

A Gypsy's Tale

Hello FabFree! I’m back again today with a few more goodies! I wanted to show you a lucky letter prize I picked up at PoshTale. I really love PoshTale clothing. It’s wonderfully versatile… working well as either modern attire or as roleplay outfits. My top is a perfect example. This Kasai Fringe Top is a FREE lucky letter board prize at PoshTale right now and would work well for either genre. No group is required, just some luck!

This is an applier top and includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega. You also get two color huds for each. The plain and patterned hud each offer 8 color choices, for a total of 16 different tops with this one applier. If this top doesn’t suit you, there are 3 other lucky letter boards currently at PoshTale for you to try your luck at.

My hair is a FREE SLB13 gift from Hairology. We’ve been showing you lots of pretty hair gifts from Hairology… this one is called “Unity” by Damselfly, and like all the other SLB13 gifts won’t cost you a single Linden. It comes in two sizes (one is to fit larger busts) and is a full fatpack of colors.

A Gypsy's Tale 2

A part of me has always been a bit of a Gypsy at heart… and perhaps that is why I love this gift from Cellar Door so much. I picked it up as part of the SLB13 celebrations at We❤ RP and it is yours FREE once you go to the Cellar Door booth there and click the cake and get your slice for your FREE gift. The box includes the necklace I am showing you, which is the rose gold color, as well as the necklace in black, bronze, gold, and silver.

I also picked up the Kunglers SLB13 gift while I was at We❤ RP. It is a really elaborate and beautiful pair of earrings called Eliza Leaf. They are shaped like leaves and are embedded with small opals and have rose quartz wired to the tops of the metal leaves. They are really beautiful. This is a FREE gift that you won’t want to miss.

If you are a photographer in Second life and you liked my poses for this post, consider stopping by the Cart Wash Sale where you can pick up several very nice poses. My poses are by Picture Perfect. The Cart has single poses, couple poses, and even a group pose… all for only 10L each!

Daydreaming

Day Dreaming

In real life it’s sweltering where I live today. Thankfully in second life it’s much cooler… and I can daydream a little. I got a notice from Pure Poison that they had a new Gacha Group gift out and was really excited. I always love the FREE spin on the group gacha… part of the fun is the surprise of what you will get. The group is FREE to join, so the pair of shoes won’t cost you a single Linden, and this set of Khyrah heels is just divine. You get one FREE spin per avatar, and that will get you a pair of heels that will fit Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya feet. If you want additional shoes, they are only 50L per spin on the non-gift gacha machine.

I landed a beautiful yellow pair and I really love the detailing on these heels by Pure Poison. I included the vendor advertisement at the end of my post so you could see the other colors available as well as get a close-up of the heels.

I wanted to pair my new heels with a pretty dress, and found just what I was looking for at the Cart Wash Sale. I picked up this pretty maxi dress by Lilbit Sass for only 10L. It is breezy and beautiful and the fit is perfect. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza too.

Day Dreaming 2

If you haven’t stopped by Hairology yet, you still have time. It runs until June 30th. I highly recommend you pick up all the cakes there! There are so many pretty FREE gifts! [e] elikatira has out a cake and inside is two gift hairs in exclusive colors. I am showing you “Libby” in the pictures above. You don’t need a group… the hair is completely FREE. Just click the cake and it’s yours!

Loki showed you one of the 10L offerings from the Luminess Cart [here] earlier, but there are several pretty items for us ladies too. I found a pretty pastel pendant that looked lovely with my outfit and picked it up to finish off my soft summery look. It has a little cherub relaxing on the disk… looking like he is daydreaming… which is exactly the mood I was in this afternoon.:)

One Fish, Blue Fish

One Fish, Blue Fish

I’m having a blast at the Cart Wash Sale so far. There are so many amazing carts with wonderful deals to be had! If you haven’t stopped by yet, consider beginning with the Koala Cart! I picked up several things off the cart (and really I could have nabbed everything and been thrilled) and I think you’ll easily see why! My top is the Zip Up Bra (animals print) and is an applier top, though you will also get system layers in the box if you are not using a system body.

The box includes material huds as well as an Omega hud, and you get 7 animal prints for your tiny little sum of 10L! That’s 7 shirts for just 10L!

One Fish, Blue Fish 2

I paired the Koala top with two more items from the Cart, which were also only 10L each. First is the Monochrome symbols bracelets. Again, you’ll get a hud to change these into one of 12 possible monochrome prints. Each bracelet changes separately for added versatility.

My nails were also a 10L deal off the Koala Cart and included a hud for 11 different choices which matched many of the bracelet designs for a fashionable look. These nails are Omega applier nails and work for Maitreya hands.

My Ruby Slippers

My Ruby Slippers

I stopped for coffee and donuts this morning… as well as the newspaper. Do any of you all still read the paper? It gets that black ink all over your fingers, but its great for setting out on a counter to cool fresh baked goods. Of course this was long before folks used wire rack cooling methods I suppose? Either way, I have more than just baked  goodies for you today, because Glitterati has set out their June Group gift for you and it is cute as pie!

This little dress with its red and gold flowers comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits and is perfect for a casual morning coffee run. I love the embossed details on the sleeves as well. This dress is yours FREE with your group tag. Group membership is a one time fee of 100L, but remember, you will not only be getting this pretty dress… but you’ll also be getting access to many past group gifts (as well as future gifts) as well. The fee quickly pays for itself.

My Ruby Slippers 2

While scanning the marketplace, I happened upon this topaz jewelry set by Beloved Jewelry for only 1 little Linden. You’ll be getting the resizable necklace, a pair of earrings and a ring too (not shown). The set is well made and easily adjustable for a great fit. It matched the color of the flower petals on my dress (and the buckles on my shoes) so nicely that I just couldn’t pass it up!

My Ruby Slippers 3

You’ve already seen a few posts here on the Fab about the Cart Wash Sale. Love showed you a post [here] and I showed you a post [here] and [here]. And I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more goodies from the Sale here on FabFree!

I stopped by the Cart Wash Sale again today, and this time I picked up a set of pretty red flats to compliment my new dress. These are called Fara by Lindy Modern & Retro shoes… but they certainly remind me of a pretty set of ruby slippers. And personally, I think every gal needs a pair of ruby slippers in her wardrobe! These pretty shoes are only 10L and will fit slink flat feet.

Flavor of the Day

Silver Lining

Thanks to Shoenique Designs and a lucky marketplace find… it seems that my “flavor of the day” has a silver lining! I stopped by Shoenique Designs to discover that they have out their June group gift and it is a real stunner. This lacy silver Cardigan comes in standard sizes as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink fits too! The design is just lush and the gift is FREE with your FREE group tag, so it won’t cost you a single linden.

I paired the Cardigan with a cute skirt I found on the marketplace by Mute. This is the Gisele Skirt and I am showing it to you in black… though it comes in a large variety of colors and prints… and at only 10L a pop you might well want to start a collection! The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes and has two cute little front slits at the thighs.

Silver Lining 2

While you’re at Shoenique Designs, be sure to also don your SL Frees & Offers group tag and pick up the FREE Meggy Silver shoes that are the gift out there as well. I paired them with the Shoenique June group gift and my new skirt and was really pleased with the look. These shoes will fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.
