Dreams!

Dreams!

Hey Fab Free! I have a really exciting announcement! It is Dreams‘ 4th year anniversary and to celebrate they have a 500 Linden gift card available until March 31st! They also have two MASSIVE wall of group gifts- a variety of items for men and women in terms of clothing and there is also a bunch of eyes, eyelash appliers, shapes and other goodies in the mix! These offers are available to Dreams VIP group members, which costs only 50 Linden to join. You essentially get everything I am wearing plus 58+ more gifts for the low price of 50 L.

Tokio

I feel so spoiled after my shopping spree at Dreams! I absolutely love the boots I bought with my giftcard called Tokio.  These stylish pair include a hud which allows you to change the boots to 30 different plain colours and patterns. I love the animal patterns especially- they are very realistic! I just love boots so these made me happy! After I bought this pair I have a little over 200 Linden left on my card, which would give you enough to buy an outfit accessory or more shoes! I highly recommend it… the value of these boots is SO worth the group join fee! The giftcard is only available until March 31st, so get over their quickly to become a Dreams VIP and grab this 500 Linden gift card present!

Drowning in Group Gifts

I was really impressed by how many group gifts Dreams has for both men and women avatars. I counted 60 group gifts, and there are likely more coming;  this designer is very generous! They also have rolling MM boards and lucky chairs. I am currently wearing the Cali Jean Dress Fatpack and the Glasses Anniversary Fatpack, both which are group gifts from Dreams. They come with colour huds with many options and many of the gifts at Dreams are full fatpacks with huds included which allow you to change the dress and glasses to 8-9 different colours. This is always a huge plus for me- I love being able to customize my look! These items are great and just a small selection of the gifts available at Dreams.

Dreams!

Weekly Dreamy Sales

In addition to the huge number of group gifts, Dreams also does weekly sales. Each week you can buy single items for 45L or 75L, items that are well within the Fab Free limit! Their weekly sales are available Friday- Sunday every week- so check these out! You can also buy full fatpacks at a discounted price during these sales (250 L). The sales are posted in their group notices and you can see them displayed in the weekly sales section of their store.

Support Your Community

Dreams is currently in need of support, and if they aren’t able to make enough sales in the coming months they may need to shut down their in-world store completely due to current economic uncertainty in both worlds. That’s one of the reasons I decided to join the Dreams group- to try to support this store while I still can! If they get more support they will hopefully be able to stay open! Dreams has been so generous in the past four years so I hope the SL community can pull through and give back- even if it is through a small way like joining their low-price group and checking out their (under 75 L) weekly sales.

Thanks for reading and supporting Fab Free!

xx- Caroline

A Little bit “Batty”

A Little Bit Batty

Happy Thursday, Fab Free! I am looking a bit batty or like the local weirdo librarian with this strange look I’ve put together. The world is going mad so my look is matching that, I guess! Let’s have fun with it and dig into the free stuff and dollarbies you can get right now; after all, we all need something fun to do with this time off!

The Dress

This dress is ” The Power of Love” gift from Entice. It is their newest group gift which came out only a few weeks ago, and it’s a fatpack which allows you to change the colours of the dress, belt and trim. It reminds me of fashion styles from the early 20th-century. It would be lovely for a formal occasion or just for putting together a unique look like I have done here. The Entice group is free to join and you can get the dress completely free at their main store with their group tag activated.

Dollarbies from S.Lima!

Some of the other almost-free items I have added to this outfit include the hair and glasses dollarbies from S.Lima. The hair is especially a great offer, as it is a full fatpack. The creator was initially going to sell this hair but decided to gift it to all of us for 1 L! How generous! So if you need a pigtails hairstyle, this is a great new dollarbie!

I really love these round glasses with bats/demon wings on them as well. They are so different and really pretty too! You can buy these on S.Lima’s marketplace store for 1 L.

Some Free Jewelery to Top it Off

Pure Poison has a whole lot of free jewelry group gifts at the back if their store in their gacha room. To get these, join their free group and grab all the gifts in the bags. I am currently wearing the Aileen necklace from this loot.

A Discounted Bento Head at the Skin Fair

Although this certainly isn’t free, I thought I would make a short note about the head I have on here as it is currently on a highly discounted price at the Skinfair. LOGO‘s “Josie Bento Head” is on sale for 999 Linden and that includes the head and all of LOGO‘s customization and animation huds which you can use with all of their other heads and future releases. These head bundles are normally priced at 3,499, so it’s a great deal. LOGO does put heads on sale occasionally so having these huds may even be useful in the future! You can pick up Josie at the skin fair until March 29th.

Brightly Colored

Felt colorful, will go back to my usual dark wardrobe later. Won’t delete. Until then I have two group gifts to share with you. First, these ears are the latest group gift at PumeC. Second, these rhinestone sunglasses are the October group gift at MINIMAL. For a bit more information about each of these group gifts, keep reading. Otherwise, feel free to scroll on down for full credits. Thanks for being here Fab Free’rs!

PumeC

I really like these new group gift mesh ears at PumeC. They are fully customizable with tons of options for skin tone, metal color, gem color, and other accessory/piercing colors. The customization hud also allows you to custom tint, resize the ears, pick from several tattoo presets, and hide or show the ear buds. Right now the PumeC group is 399L to join, and there are several past group gifts still available, including other ears and skins.

MINIMAL

These colorful rhinestone sunglasses are the October group gift at MINIMAL. They have resize scripts, and allow you to pick from 3 different lens colors, each with a solid or gradient option. The MINIMAL group is 50L to join, and there are past group gifts available as well.

Late Night Conversations

Late Night Conversation
Hi hi Fabulous Fab Free’rs! We are right at the end of the week and I know I’m not the only one who could use some r and r, or rest and relaxation. The most recent group gift set by LsR is perfect for a little lounging. Additionally, Xxxtaci has a flaming cool pair of group gift glasses to help you look cool no matter what you have planned.

Get Some Camo – This pale pink camo sports bra and panties/shorts set is free to all LsR group members. This free group gift includes the top and bottoms in several mesh sizes. The waist band, and the band around the bottom of the top (not sure what you call that, hmm) both read “Sexy Girl Sport” repeated all the way around. The fabric has a knitted look too it also, which is what made me think of this set as being extra comfy to lounge around in. To get yours you’ll need to head over to LsR and join the free-to-join group. There are several group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Altamura, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya)

Flame Glasses – Okay maybe these glasses don’t exactly go with the outfit, but they are so cute on that I don’t even care. They have a rose gold colored partial frame, and the cool flame shaped cuts on the side of these “cat-eye” shaped glasses make them irresistible. They are also equipped with resize scripts. If you’re going to wear glasses, they may as well look awesome. That said, it also helps these glasses are a current free group gift at Xxxtaci. The Xxxtaci group also happens to be free to join! One quick note, the vendor for these glasses does require you to pay one linden, however the 1 linden will be instantly refunded.

Rumpled but Cute

Rumpled but Cute

Happy Weekend Fab Free!

I’m thinking about the days when I used to stay up til the wee hours, dancing the night away.  I could dance for ages (I still can by the way!!!) and then wake up the next morning fresh as a tiddly, and ready to wink! (bahaha!).  Well, that’s my look today – the Saturday morning rumpled, just got out of bed, but still look flipping fantastic look.  I’ve got all the deets!

Strip it Good

Ok, so weird subtitle, but Vanilla Bae are the specialists of the strippable outfit.  Yep, you click on it a few times, and then bit by bit it slithers off your body and disappears into the ether.  I was telling you about some lucky boards there the other day, but today I’ll tell you about this cute top you can get as a group gift with the 100L join fee.  There are other gifts to be had as well, including access to the lucky boards which are full of goodies.  This top comes with 6 different colours in the HUD, and I must say that I highly enjoy the flowery design on the top.  Don’t you?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

I Can See!

Boutique 187 has a cute free gift for you at the Cosmopolitan event – these cute Eiffel-esque glasses in a cheery gold hue.  They please me infinitely.  You can grab your own pair by joining the Cosmopolitan group for free!  The gift is right by the entry doors to the event.

Now go forth, my little ones – and take Saturday by the horns!

A Bad Egg

A Bad Egg

Monday has arrived, but I’m well pleased that it’s a short week.  Easter is heading our way, bringing the promise of chocolate, jelly beans and that stringy multicoloured fake straw stuff that you’ll find under your couch six months from now, wondering how it possibly could have gotten there.  I found the perfect outfit for the Monday running up to a long weekend – a giant pastel-gothy sweatshirt with an evil looking bunny on it.  I dunno, it just seems a propos to me.

Sn@tch it up!

I post a lot about Sn@tch, I realise, but Ivey Deschanel just keeps churning awesome freebies out, and this one is no exception.  I was on the hunt trail again, this time for the “Dozen Good Eggs Hunt”.  Each participating store has six pastel-hued eggs strewn about their store, each containing an awesome prize.  I got the sweatshirt and skirt in one egg, and the glasses in another!  I have always felt an affinity with the pastel Goth style – it’s somewhere between the dark recesses of my heart and the part of me that likes skipping gleefully while eating large amounts of candy.   Anywhos, don’t forget to click on the hunt poster while in the store, so you can tp to other shops and pick up loads of fun free stuff!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Alpha Layers included

Read My Lips

One other fun and free little item I picked up on this hunt is the lipstick you see above.  I grabbed it in one of the eggs at The Little Bat.  There are loads of different colours to choose from in the applier, and they’re all very appealing.  This lipstick comes with appliers for Lelutka and Catwa, as well as an Omega applier.  Fun!

Now I’m going to go stomp all over this week, just like the evil bunny on my sweater would.

Mwahhaha

Sci-Fi and Sunglasses

Sci Fi... and Boots

I’m feeling a little sci-fi and fantasy all at the same time today… and the elements of the gifts I picked out could be used for different genres of everyday wear or roleplay gear depending upon how you paired them with outfits or other details (I think that’s why I love these gifts so much).

The Heart Shaped Sunglasses Hunt started today and I think there are some really fabulous gifts to be had. I’m showing off two of them in this post alone, and hope to show off a few more that I have my eye on.

Thigh High

These Thigh High boots by Have Unequal immediately caught my attention and won my approval and I was thrilled when I tried them on. They say “wool” but to me they look leather with a “wool” sock sort of sticking out the top. They will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time at the Have Unequal main-store and when you unpack the box you’ll find boots to fit Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique mesh bodies. These boots would be slick for some Sci-fi roleplay or other types of RP… or just for wearing and not roleplaying 😉

Speaking of Hearts

Since I was on the heart trail, I also picked up the 5L prize from Kotte, which happens to be this great pair of heart shaped sunglasses in “sea”. They come with a hud that allows you to change the metal detailing on the glasses to either silver or gold. If you click on the flickr picture and zoom in, you can see that their is a little Gothic cross on the sides of the glasses.

A touch of fantasy

While I was at Kotte I accidentally scrolled my mouse and cammed inside another store and found my camera locked onto a group gift at a new-to-me store called {Ghoul}. Immediately I knew I had to have the Dragonglass Back Gems! They emit a soft purple light and would be great for fantasy, medieval, or sci-fi roleplay… or just for fun. The group is 50L to join, and there was another group gift beside the back gems, a photo body glow. The gems come in sizes to fit several mesh bodies, including a male mesh body!

Back Gem Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya
  • Belleza – Jake

Izzie’s Group Gift Scarf & Glasses Set 

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! Today I have a quick little post about the group gift from Izzie’s to share with you. Honestly it’s just too cute to miss even though there is a group join fee. I love the little snowflakes that are sprinkled over this knit scarf, and the appearance of frost on the over-sized glasses. This FREE group gift at Izzie’s is truly every bit as cute as it looks. The set also includes a color change hud so you can choose between 7 colors to match almost any outfit. The glasses and the scarf have their ownwinter individual huds, so the colors can be changed individually. Additionally the set is unisex. The scarf has male and female sizes, and the glasses are able to be resized manually. As I mentioned, there is a one time join fee for the Izzie’s group, the fee is 250 lindens, however with gifts like this I think the fee is worth it!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
