Hi there Fab Free’rs! It always seems the weekend goes by too fast. Other times I feel like I need a weekend from my weekend! Either way, retail therapy always works for me. Nothing makes me feel good like something new to wear, especially when that something new happens to be free! I spent the afternoon picking up a few more awesome group gifts, and I’m happy I get to share them with you.
Group Gifts First, this halter dress is actually the March group gift at BlackRose. You’ll find it in a box near the BlackRose main entrance. Though it is a “group” gift I did not need to join the group to get the gift. Just click the box and the dress should be delivered. Additionally, there is a second equally cute dress included in the gift. This FREE gift is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. Hurry over to BlackRose and pick up this beautiful FREE dress before it’s no longer available.

These FREE group gift heels from Empire are the perfect match for the dress. These sexy peep-toe shoes are too pretty to pass up. They include a specific fit for Maitreya, TMP, Belleza, and Slink feet, as well as a color change HUD that allows you to change colors of specific parts of the shoes by choosing between 12 colors. The Empire group has a one time join fee 0f 499 lindens. Upon joining you’ll have instant access to previous, and current group gifts, each well worth the group fee.

Last but not at all least is this studded purse from Swallow. The purse is their FREE April group gift available to all group members. This highly detailed purse has re-size scripts, and comes in several color options. The Swallow group carries a one time join fee of just 30 lindens. The purse alone is more than worth the join fee, not to mention there are several past group gifts still available.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I Heart Rompers

AB Gift Close

Hello Fab Free! Am I the only one whose schedule has been whacko lately? haha I swear I will find a regular rhythm again soon. Anyway, enough about me, let’s talk about this scandalously cute romper from American Bazaar. Yep, I said scandalous. The low cut, wide v of this romper means  you’ll need to be careful when wearing it, or not, just know you might be showing more than your cleavage. Even so, I do love it, and it’s in my favorite not-a-color, black! The romper is Amercan Bazaar’s most recent FREE group gift for the ladies. It’s of course fully mesh and comes in several fitmesh sizes and a Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza fit. For a little modesty, and to add a touch of casual to this look, I chose to wear an applier tube-top under the romper. The American Bazaar Fashion Group is FREE to join at this time. Wear your group tag. Go to American Bazaar. Get this romper. Look adorable.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

It’s Legen… wait-for-it… daire!

Designer Showcase FullHey there Fab Free! As always I’m happy you’re here. I’ve got some pretties from Designer Showcase to share with you this post. This round of Designer Showcase has some FREE group gifts from Legendaire and Chop Zuey. In addition, Empire put out their March group gift and it just happens to match perfectly with the gifts from Designer Showcase. I love it when various gifts come together to make an awesome outfit.
Designer Showcase Gifts The gift from Chop Zuey is this uniquely pretty blue and gold bindi. This truly unique piece of jewelry is perfect for adding some glam to an outfit. As with anything from Chop Zuey this FREE gift is highly detailed and textured. It can also be easily re-sized with a click. To get this great gift, head over to Designer Showcase and join the Designer Showcase event. The group is FREE to join, so no reason to hesitate on this.

Also a FREE gift at Designer Showcase is this chic sophisticated outfit from Legendaire. I really like the cut and style of this outfit. It’s fully mesh and comes in several sizes. The top also includes a color/texture change hud making the outfit very versatile. Don’t forget, you’ll also need your Designer Showcase tag to pick up this generous gift.

I love wearing red shoes with dark pants. These adorable buckled pumps are the March group gift at Empire. The shoes come in a Maitreya specific fit, a Slink fit, and a Belleza fit. Additionally there are cute little bows that you can attach that are across the straps and toe (not shown) if you want to add a little daintiness to this already cute shoe. Finally, there is also a color change HUD that allows you to change the color of the shoes/bows by choosing between 12 colors, and you can pick between 3 choices for the color of the buckles. The Empire group has a one time join fee of 250 lindens. Considering the quality of the group gifts so far, I can honestly say that I think the fee is well worth it.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Let’s Have an Adventure

Adventure

Have an adventure Fab Free! At the very least, a shopping spree. That’s what you’ll feel like after you see the room full of group gifts at Lavain&Co. Yes, you read that right, there is a gift room and the number of gifts is honestly almost overwhelming! One of the several items I picked up for myself at the Lavain&Co. women’s gift room is this sleek stylish one-piece suit. This is the sort of sophisticated look that never goes out of style. The gift is called “Big in Japan” and it includes several standard mesh sizes, as well as alpha layers. This means it’s suitable for mesh and classic avatars. That said, the Lavain&Co. VIP group does have a hefty one-time join fee of 499 lindens. However, if you like the chic style, the fee is well worth the instant access to the abundance of group gifts.

Speaking of chic style, these cute blue pumps from ChicChica are a FREE group gift at Cosmopolitan Sales Room. The shoes are a pretty dark blue with a lace-like overlay pattern, and they come in Slink high and a Maitreya fit. To get these great shoes by ChicChica for yourself, just join the Cosmopolitan Club & Lounge group and click the gift vendor. Don’t wait, they’ll be gone as soon as the current round of Cosmo Sales Room ends. The Cosmopolitan Club & Lounge group is also FREE to join.

Lastly, to add a little something extra to this already pretty outfit, I put on the Steam Hunt gift from Hudson’s. This FREE hunt prize is a simple yet elegant pair of detailed nautical themed pendants on a thin black cord. This FREE necklace comes in a short and a long version, and both can be re-sized. Even with the somewhat floral and lace patterns present in the clothing and shoes, I think the blue lends it’s self to the nautical aspect of the necklace. If you like the necklace it’s well worth the effort of hunting it down at the Hudson’s main location.

Knockers Empire

Knockers Empire

Hello Fab Free’rs! Today I’m feeling a little more gothic than usual, perhaps it’s this curvaceous school uniform from Knockers giving me gothic lolita vibes. This subtly sexy outfit is the current group gift at Knockers. The Knockers V.I.P. group is currently 150 lindens to join, however the monthly gifts are more than worth the one time fee. The dress is a single mesh piece and highly detailed. Not to mention, the curves in this mesh are killer. If you like the style, you won’t want to miss out on this gift from Knockers.

To match this cute dress, I needed equally cute and flirty shoes. Recently I received notice of a new shop in Second Life called Empire. I went and checked out Empire, and was not disappointed. These platform shoes are their current opening group gift. The shoes come in fits for most mesh feet and include a color change hud that allows you to change individual parts of the shoes. The shoes could be colored this way to match just about anything. The Empire group has a one time join fee of 150 lindens as well, but I am comfortable saying these shoes are worth it. I’ve been wearing them, and they are seriously cute on.

Accessorizing Freely

ECCO Gifts

Wow! I have to say I am amazed at all the awesome free accessories we have all been able to find!! I’m excited to share with you my finds as well. I hope you enjoy them. I love it when stores keep their previous group gifts available for new members. ECCO is a shop that does just that. The ECCO V.I.P Updates group has a one-time join fee of 200 lindens. Once you’ve joined the group you will be able to click the Group Gift vendors and get each and every one of the past group gifts displayed. The above photos show just a few of the currently available gifts. From left to right, the first one is the most recent Valentine’s Day gift from ECCO. This heart pendant comes with a color change hud to adjust the metal of the necklace, and it has re-size scripts. This is the sort of necklace you could definitely wear every day and with any outfit. Next, the necklace with matching bracelets that read “Beautiful” are the 8th Rez Day gift at ECCO. This classic set is also one that is very versatile and could be worn with just about anything. It also includes re-size scripts for easy fitting. Finally from ECCO I personally really like this necklace. It’s a great statement piece that comes with a color change hud to allow you to adjust the color of different parts of the necklace for unique looks.

Tantalum Glow

The first two items pictured above are from the Lucky Boards at one of my favorite jewelry stores, Tantalum. You will need to join the Tantalum group to play the Lucky Boards, however the group is FREE to join. The three tiered necklace on the left is really detailed, and so pretty on. In the center photo are the Kelly Garter Straps. This is an accessory you don’t see often, which I think makes them even more unique. These pretty garter straps include a color/size change hud for easy adjusting and the ability to match them to your outfit. There are several other Lucky Boards with equally lovely prizes to be had, all for FREE at Tantalum. The pretty little clutch in the third photo is the current group gift at Glow Designs. This pastel purse is just right for spring. It also includes a color change hud with several pastel color options. You will need to join the Glow Designs group which has a one time join fee of 10 lindens to get the gift.

SWANK Gifts

Finally, each of the above pictured accessories are FREE gifts available at the current round of SWANK. You may need to join the SWANK group and wear your tag to pick up the gifts, however the group is also FREE to join. Starting from the left, these body jewels are a gift from Indulge Temptation. The little rhinestones playfully spell out Diva, and have a color/resize hud for easy adjustments. This gift also includes matching body jewels for other areas of the body. Next is the SWANK gift from Semi-Precious. This cute little elephant necklace also comes with some dainty hoop earrings which are not shown. To the right is the gift from Zuri. This pretty circlet is highly detailed, and I found it really easy to fit. It’s truly a pretty piece that would be great for a wedding or any black tie event. It would also be perfect for a fantasy look.

I hope you like my Accessory Day finds! Here are the details, Enjoy!

Flowers in Betty’s Boudoir

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 1

If you need a romantic gown for the upcoming Valentine’s weekend — or for any occasion — now is your chance to pick up a Junbug classic as a FREE group gift. If you stop by Junbug‘s main-store location, the current group gift is this stunning Betty’s Boudoir in sky blue brocade. You’ll need to wear your group tag (200L to join the group) but when you consider the gifts and benefits, the sum is worth joining the group.

This gown is highly detailed mesh in all the standard sizes. The corset has stunning ribbons and buttons down the front that are perfect for romance. I did pair mine with a lacy underlay for added romance, but the gown is also perfect just by itself.

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 2

The devil is in the details as they say! But this deal is certainly heavily! Stop by ECCO main-store next where you can get two perfectly FREE gifts of jewelry to go with your new gown! My simply stunning Pearl Swoosh Earrings are a FREE gift exclusively for members of the FabFree Group. Just wear your FabFree tag (it’s FREE to join the group!) to pick these up! Not only are they delicate and lovely, but they also include a texture change hud with five color choices!

My hair clip is another generous FREE gift, this time ECCO is giving it FREE as part of SL frees & offers. Wear your SL frees & offers group tag (also FREE to join) and you can pick up this lovely Jewels Hair Flower in three metal choices!

Like all group gifts they won’t last forever… be sure to hurry over and pick them up while they are available!

Southern Sophistication

Southern Sophistication

Hello Fab Free! Thanks for stopping by our Fabulous blog today. It seems like already there are so many hunts, events, and gifts to be had for the month of February, it’s so exciting! I was able to put together most of this look using group gifts from MoDanna and ECCO, a hunt prize from More Than Ever, and a wearable demo from Alaskametro. I love this look because it reminds me of some of the style you would see in the Southern U.S. where I am from.

Starting from top to bottom, I picked up this sort of matte red lipstick from Alaskametro on the Marketplace. I thought it matched the red of the boots perfectly. The lipstick applier is a FREE wearable demo from Alaskametro showing the “Fiery” shade in their “Creme Red” lipstick collection. This FREE wearable demo includes a system layer, a Loud Mouth applier, an Omega applier, a Lelutka applier, and a Slink Visage applier.

Next I picked up this almost bolero style necklace for FREE at ECCO with my ECCO group tag. This pretty necklace with heart and bead dangles is the February group gift at ECCO. It includes a color change hud to allow you to customize the color of the cords, beads, metal, and gems of the necklace for high versatility. The ECCO group does have a one time join fee of 200 lindens, however you will not only be able to get the February group gift, but you’ll have instant access to several previous group gifts upon joining the ECCO group.

This sophisticated looking sleek black dress is another group gift, this one from MoDanna. All MoDanna group members can pick up this group gift for 1 linden while wearing their group tag. In addition to purchasing the dress, your 1 linden is converted into 1 linden store credit! The MoDanna group is free to join, and there is usually a group gift each month, not to mention group members earn store credit for their purchases.

Finally, these gorgeous boots! I love the tooled red leather look of these red boots from More Than Ever. The boots are the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt prize from More Than Ever. This hunt is a 10 linden hunt, so you can score these amazing mesh boots for just 10 lindens, all you need to do is find them! You’ll be looking for a black and red shoe hidden in the More Than Ever shop.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Cascade of Magic

Sometimes a little fantasy pick-me-up is just the thing to make your day… and today I felt like making a little magic! I picked up a few things around the grid sure to make any role player’s day a bit more magical, and I’m here to let you in on the magician’s secrets!

Right now if you stop by [EvelineInTheBox], the creator’s February gift is out. It is this lovely Thyri Cascade dress in mesh (all the standard sizes) that is really just fantastic. I love the way the dress curves around my avatar’s body! It is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift a sweet deal!

A Cascade of Magic

Remember that Alice Project is still hosting their Winter Project! Today I stopped by to pick up this hair called Amy in the Winter Shimmer version… which is the VIP members’ gift. This is FREE to VIPs. The group is 750L to join but there are always TONS of amazing offers. There is also a FREE pack out for nonmembers, so it’s still very worth your time to stop by and pick up the giftie even if you are not a VIP member.

My roleplay character Astrid is a fey who does light and magic using staffs… so when I saw this crystal staff at A.D.D.Andel! I fell in love! It is only 50L per spin at the in-store gacha and there are lots of beautiful staffs in the machine. These are even modifiable, so I was able to make mine have a bit of a glow to better fit how I envisioned my character. Love, love, love this!
