Fit for a princess!

Maiden_001

Aline has already shown you some great free gifts from the Gacha Garden {here} and {here} but when FabFree reader Victoria sent me a special tip that I could put together a roleplay outfit with two gifts from the event, I knew I had to blog them for you! All you’ll need is the Gimme Gacha group (the group is free to join) and then stop by the respective vendors to nab your gifts and this pretty fantasy look fit for a princess is yours!

Hair please!

This fabulous fantasy hair is free courtesy of Analog Dog at the Gacha Garden event and includes twisted braids in the front and back for a fanciful look. You’ll get a full range of colors with a color change hud and a tinting wheel that will allow you to make the hair almost any color your heart desires. This is fitted mesh and should work with just about any head you might have. It’s a generous gift indeed!

A dress fit for a princess!

Broken Style is also giving a generous gift at the Gacha Garden in the form of their Ursula gown. It includes a tiara as well, making it fit for a princess. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes an alpha in case you need it. You’ll also get a color change hud allowing you to choose between three colors (I’ve included a picture of the hud at the bottom of this post so you can see). Pick this gift up free with your Gimme Gacha tag as well!

A Stroll Through Paris

Visiting Paris_001

If only I could teleport to Paris for a stroll in real life too…

I was feeling restless after a week of not being able to blog because of real life responsibilities and so I picked up a dress at a new-to-me shop that my hunting buddy mentioned and teleported over to Paris 1900 for a stroll around Hyde Park. I took the picture above to show off my new formal wear. Isn’t it lovely! Almost as lovely as Paris!

The Dress

You can have this dress for free too! Just stop by MH Unique Design don the group tag (the group is free to join) and pick up this beautiful group gift. There are several other group gifts out as well.

The thing that jumped out at me was the colossal number of lucky letter boards at the store! I couldn’t believe my eyes! Your letter was sure to be up on at least one of the boards somewhere and it was sure to be your lucky day. I picked up several lucky letter board outfits while I was there as there as well that were also free and will try to blog those for you as quick as I can!

In the meantime, this dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Down to There

Down to There

Oh, you know how it is, getting invited to balls and galas every other minute.  Can’t keep my calendar clear for half a second these days… Or maybe it’s just me enjoying some me time and posing by a fountain wearing a free gown that is cut down to there…  Most likely the second option, come on people…

Emerald Stunner

Yep, this gown is absolutely free.  No, I’m not joking.  This gorgeous emerald gown is a free group gift at the new Sense event.  You can pick it up by joining the Sense Group for free, and clicking ever so delicately on the vendor (or just mash your mouse, I know I did…ha!).   I love the daring cut, as well as the sparkly bits.  So prettyyyy.  Sense is open until February 8th!

Queen for a Day

Queenz
Oh Hello There! Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I’m excited you’re here. I’m also pretty darn excited about this dress, and the little clutch I found to go with it. It’s Saturday and I’m so ready for a night out, and now I’ve something sexy to wear. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get the dress and clutch without breaking your linden bank.

Queenz

I think Pru looks like a sultry Queen in this FREE group gift dress from Queenz. It is undeniably revealing, however I think it’s equally elegant looking with the long sleeves and soft dark fabric. The gown comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud with 5 color variations. At this time the Queenz group is FREE to join making this fabulous dress absolutely FREE, all you need is group space.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody Curvy, Slink Hourglass

Swallow

The one irksome thing about most gowns, no pockets. That does however give a girl an excuse to get a matching clutch! I stumbled across this cute studded heart-shaped clutch at Swallow. It’s one of their more recent group gifts, there are several currently available. This gift includes 2 of the clutches, they are identical except one attaches to the right hand and the other to the left hand. Which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it really does make things so much easier. There is also a color change hud with 12 color options for the main part of the clutch, 4 color options for the hardware, and 4 options for the spiked studs. Currently the Swallow group is 40 linden to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fit for a Lady

Enchanted_001_001

Roleplay is always near and dear to my heart, so when I find an outfit or dress for a bargain that I can share with you dear Fabulouses, I am thrilled! I was opening my Womenstuff Hunt gifts and ran across a gown that would be perfect for roleplay and wanted to share it with you.

Fit for a Lady

I stopped by Tiffany Designs and after a little hunting for the free red t-shirt, I picked up their Womenstuff gift and brought it home to unpack. It’s a lovely formal gown that is suitable for any formal occasion but also perfect for roleplay settings as well. It includes the gown I am showing above, as well as a white fur shoulder stole, a gold necklace, and long flowing sleeves. I’m only wearing the dress itself for the purpose of the picture.

Dress size fits:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Dinner Date

Dinner Out_001

I have a dinner date, and needed something spectacular to impress my friend. I know he won’t leave me waiting long, after all, he helped me hunt down both my necklace and my dress…

Don’t miss out…

… the Women Only Hunt ends December 31st, so you’ll need to hurry to get the last of the beautiful free prizes if you haven’t made all the stops yet. In preparation for my date, I stopped by Secrets and picked up the free Bey Necklace. It comes in two separate pieces and with a color change hud with 9 color choices for the metal. You can even change each part of the necklace separately. Color choices included some unique metal choices such as turquoise, pink, and violet, as well as the traditional black, silver, and gold.

As good as gold…

… is this Selene Black Lace Dress by Glitter. It’s the free group gift dress celebrating 6,000 group members. The Glitter group is free to join so you can pick up this dress for free too. It’s got a sheer bodice and a slightly sheer skirt. So if you’re modest, you might want to wear a pair of panties underneath.

Sizes included for the dress:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass
  • Belleza

Some Second Life Snow

Dream_001

“When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and never let it go.” Carol Burnett

I’ve been dreaming a lot about a white Christmas. Sure I can find plenty of snow in Second Life, but all I’ve had here where I live is the cold, cold, cold. No snow yet. I admit, I miss the flurries and white just a bit. Meanwhile, I’ll settle for the pretty white, of Second Life snow, until real life delivers!

Some Second Life Snow…

PixelArt showed off some snow with a special free POE Hunt gift that is a 4 prim snow photo studio. The studio includes 10 different winter backdrops including the one I am showing off in the picture, two actual prim trees that you can just glimpse in my picture, and a set of very nice poses that you change by clicking on a snowflake at the top of the studio. It’s a beautiful free snowy gift!

Some Glam…

My glamourous dress is the free POE Hunt gift from Paisley Daisy and is perfect for winter glam parties, nights on the town, ballgowns and formal occasions, and those ever popular Christmas parties. This full length gown with the generous side split is luscious with its generous array of shimmering colors and comes in may sizes.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Proud as a Peacock

Proud as a Peacock

You know that problem we’ve all got in SL – not wanting to wear the same thing twice?  Well, I think I’ve found a dress that may make me want to break that rule.  ‘Tis the season for sparkly dresses, and this super pretty one is completely FREE!  Yummy!

You too can get this pretty number by just spending a few minutes searching for it on the rOrO cart at The Guest List.  Yep, no random walking about, no scratching your head for ages, just find the little strawberry on the cart, and it’s all yours.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

The Cotton Candy Beaded Gown made me think of peacocks – I do love the deep turquoises and purples of the dress, and the slit on the side made for a nice exotic touch.  A real showstopper for all the parties and events this season.  A golden beaded shawl is also included to keep warm on those chilly nights (not pictured).

Sizes

  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Now, did someone promise me champagne?

Queen of Autumn

Queen of Autum_001

I have a special free roleplay gown for you. Though if you skip the cloak and high neck collar on this gown, the red gown and mesh red gloves, make this gown fitting for any formal occasion as well.

Stop by…

Just make a stop by BlueMoon Enterprise which is housed inside of Silvan Moon Design and The White Armory. You’ll need to go inside the main-store of The White Armory, then find the BlueMoon Enterprise building inside. Once inside BlueMoon, make your way to their gift station. This gift is free with your group tag and the group is free to join as well! You’ll get the gown in several sizes, the fitted mesh gloves (they fit my Maitreya body perfectly), the high neck collar with attached necklace, and the shoulder pieces.

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic sizes XXS – M (the Medium fit my Maitreya body well)
  • Slink fitted

I’m not grumbling about this gown!

Devil with the Red Dress On_001

Oh, oh, oh, I’m going to have a ball tonight! And I’m dressed for ballroom style! Do you need a formal gown and only have a single linden to your name? I have just the stop for you!

Grumbling… not!

I’m not grumbling about this hunt gift from Grumble! It’s a beautiful formal ballgown in red that is also just simple enough to pass as a “Sunday Dress” for less formal occasions. You can pick it up at the Grumble main-store as part of the Jerky Turky Hunt for 1L. Your clue is: “I think i saw a feather in the cash register.” Look for the orange feather and when you find it, pay the 1L and the dress is yours!

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus
