Hello hello from Cloud 9! Well from a cloud anyway. haha I hope everyone is doing well. I’m excited to share with you this gorgeous Lucky Letter Board dress from Apple May Designs along with a beautiful group gift hairstyle from Opale. I took the photo from the back because I felt like the back of the dress and the back of the hairstyle were quite nice. I love the long understated black bow detail in the dress. I also thought the little wisps of hair in the back of this long hairstyle were a nice touch. Keep reading for the details on how to get each of these fabulous finds.

The Hair – The hairstyle Pru is wearing in the above photo is Sofa by Opale. There is a free group gift version of Sofa at Opale that includes 3 color versions. There is a blonde, a dark blonde, and a brunette color with the pretty pink and blue color fades. At this time the Opale group is free to join. The Leo hairstyle shown below is another free group gift currently available at Opale. I also saw two group gift headbands.

OPALE GROUP GIFT

The Dress – I think this sweet slip of a dress by Apple May Designs is really pretty. There are two ways you can score this dress for free or very inexpensively. Apple May Designs group members can participate in the Lucky Letter boards. There are two, one for each of the colors shown in the ad below. If you don’t want to wait for your letter to pop up and have a few lindens to spare, AMD group members can also purchase this dress for just 49 linden. There are also previous AMD group-only specials available at that price, just be sure to wear your AMD group tag. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden if you are not already a group member.

P.S. Like the wings? They are simple yet beautiful mesh individual wings by Corvus that you can pick up on the Marketplace for just 45 linden. They also come in white!

Don’t blame me, love made me crazy

Don't blame me, love made me crazy

Heeeey FabFree! Happy Friday! I’ve got a busy weekend ahead of me, but I wanted to pop in and show you this gorgeous dress first!

I love this dress!

I got it for only 10L from Emerald Couture at The Wash‘s cart sale. It’s such a fun, easy to wear style that’s got that almost bohemian feel to it that I just can’t get enough of. For 10L I got the dress in these sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Original
  • TMP
  • Fitted
  • 5 classic sizes, L-XXS

Plus it comes with some matching purple heels sized for Slink that I’m not wearing.

Heels, too!

My new dress looks super cute as a long flowy blouse too with a pair of jeans, and I almost wore it that way. But then I picked up these fantastic shoes from Empire today for Fifty Linden Friday and obviously I didn’t have any choice but to change my plans. These shoes are a fantastic deal! I thought it was going to just be the colors on the vendor picture (which would have been totally worth it also), but no – you’ll get a fatpack of 20 colors! Yes, please. They are sized for:

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

And each size comes in 2 versions, regular and materials. I love the sexy strappy heel and how they go aaaaall the way up to thigh height!

Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here
Hello Fab Free’rs! I’ve packed up all I own, and I’ve got my camera. I’m ready for a long vacation, where are we going? I’d love nothing more than to be able to pack up and go on some long adventure. For now I’ll be satisfied doing my adventuring, and most of my shopping, right here in Second Life. I put together most of this look using current or previous group gifts. As always I’ll let you know all the information about how to get each one, just keep reading!

The Hair – The cute little bob hairstyle Pru is sporting is a still available May group gift at Besom. I checked there today, just to be sure. I love the slightly tousled look of this perfect-for-summer hairstyle. The Besom group is 199 linden to join, and there is more than one group gift currently available.

The Dress – This dress from Prey has the look of a structured well tailored leather dress, and the fringe just adds to the effect. It is the sort of dress you could dress up, but there’s no dressing this one down! It also happens to be the free July group gift at Prey. Love told me about it and I’m super pleased she did. The Prey group is free to join, and they also have a male gift available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis)

Tropical Summer Days

La Isla Bonita
Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! Don’t mind Pru’s expression, she has resting b!$&# face. I’m really quite happy with the fabulous finds I have to share with you. I hope you like them too. For today I have 3 goodies, this summer hat and hairstyle from Pink Hustler, the gorgeous tattoo from This is Wrong, and this fun sundress from Continuum.

The Hair & Hat – A good hat hairstyle is sometimes hard to find in Second Life. This one had me at hello. It’s one of quite a few group gifts available at Pink Hustler. The gift comes with an “Essentials” color hud that also has some pretty pastel options. Additionally there’s a few color options for the hat. The Pink Hustler group has a steep one time join fee of 500 linden. I do however thing the abundance of gifts make the fee worth while.

The Tattoo – This colorful tattoo reminds me of fractals and stained glass. I think I’ll be wearing it often! It is a free Lucky Letter board prize at This is Wrong. No group is needed to participate. There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at This is Wrong. Two have female tattoos with appliers for female bodies, and two have male tattoos with appliers for male bodies. This tattoo comes in several appliers with the option of regular and a faded version.
Appliers Included: Maiterya/Belleza, Slink, TMP

The Sundress – The bright yellow and teal sundress Pru has on is the most recent Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Continuum. It comes in a few mesh sizes and is free to all Fab Free group members, just wear your Fab Free group tag, pay the vendor 1 linden, your gift will be delivered, and you’ll be refunded your 1 linden. If you’re not a Fab Free group member, the Fab Free group is free to join.  Also, included with this cute little sundress is an alpha layer, so it is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars.
Sizes Included: Fitted Mesh, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Altamura, eBody

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.

Vinyl Kitty

Vinyl Kitty
Oh Hello There Fab Free’rs. This photo is the perfect example of Pru living my idea of the best lazy day ever. All that’s missing from the photo is something delicious to drink. I’d love to spend the day with fantastically messy hair, in my undies, listening to my records. I don’t care if that makes me a hipster. I’m good with it. haha

The Hair – Speaking of fantastically messy hair, this hairstyle is the June group gift at Besom. The style is called “Pythia” and it comes in a full fat pack. To get your copy head on over to Besom and wear your group tag. The currently available group gifts are on the wall to the right just inside the store. The Besom group has a one time join fee of 199 linden. Don’t forget there is more than one group gift available!

The Socks – Now about these kitty socks. It’s true, Pru often takes “crazy cat lady” to the next level. Why be a cat lady, when you can be a cat-lady?! She says with a twitch of her kitty ears. So it stands to reason these free group gift socks from Vinyl had to come home with me. There are quite a few group gifts currently available at Vinyl, and the group is free to join.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Ali & Ali Designs

Ali & Ali Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry I’ve been so absent as of late. I’m gearing up for a move in RL and it is taking not only my focus but most of my energy. I cannot wait to be settled and back into a normal routine. I hate being away, I miss you guys! That said I did manage a little bit of time to share with you the designer of the week, Ali & Ali Designs.

As most of you probably know, Ali & Ali is a hair shop that has been part of the Second Life experience for quite a while. What you might not know is that Ali & Ali also has a small selection of clothing, shoes, and even business scripts! There’s really a lot to see and shop for at Ali & Ali. At the main entrance you’ll notice there’s even a convenient teleport board with quite a few store “departments” that you can teleport to for convenient shopping. Still, the main Attraction at Ali & Ali is the hair. There are male styles as well as the female styles, there are also beards. Ali & Ali also caters nicely to the Classic Avatars in that they still offer non-mesh styles along with mesh, and they have a set of free tattoo layer hair bases available on the information desk just inside the entrance.

Ali & Ali Front Desk
The Ali & Ali information desk is really the hub of the store. Here you’ll find all the information you need about anything and everything Ali & Ali related. There are also helpful fairies around the store that you can click for help and additional information. Also at the desk are the current free Ali & Ali group gifts. There is one for the gentlemen as well as the ladies. The Ali & Ali group is free to join at this time. I added a close up of the teleport board so you can get a better look at all Ali & Ali has to offer.Ali & Ali Lucky Gifts

Speaking of offers, just to the left of the desk you’ll find the exclusive Ali & Ali male and female gifts for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Finally, as you shop through the multiple floors of the Ali & Ali store, you’ll see the occasional lucky letter chair and a few mini mania type boards. I put up some examples of what to look for, however the boards and chair shown are not the only ones. Don’t forget, there are male prizes as well as female ones. Also I noticed that at least a few of the boards did not seem to require a group to participate. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Hey Fab Free’rs! It’s time to get out your Doc Martins and your brown lipstick, ’90s fashion and accessories are making a comeback! I am once again going to show my age with this post, but I’ve learned to not care about age so much.

Right now you can get the cutest little heart choker for free at Boutique #187. This is a rare “no group required” freebie from Boutique #187, so you won’t want to miss it. It has resize scripts and comes in black, gold, and silver. I remember wearing these stretchy black plastic chokers in my teens in the ’90s so of course I had to have this one.

What better way to show off your choker than with cute braided space buns?! This hairstyle is a recent group gift at Pink Hustler. It comes with 3 color pack huds, and has resize scripts. The Pink Hustler group has a sizable join fee of 500 linden. This fee will grant you not only the current group gift, but an entire wall of previous group gifts, and of course future gifts.

Happy Shopping Fab Free, here are the details!
