Art Deco Darling

Tuesday
I feel a little like a Showgirl in these fabulous group gifts from Swallow and SlackGirl, and I’m perfectly fine with that! It’s been a while since I showed some pretty makeup and accessories, so these group gifts are just the thing. It’s extra fun that they all happen to look so lovely together!

SlackGirl is one of my favorite stores for makeup in Second Life. There seem to always be group gifts as well, which certainly doesn’t hurt. This gorgeous lipstick is part of the huge Clarice set available FREE to all SlackGirl group members. This particular gift is for the Catwa head-wearers only. The gift includes 3 huds with 8 lipstick shades each. I really like the high shine of these lipsticks, it’s a nice departure from the matte lipsticks you see a lot. Also at SlackGirl, along with many other gifts, are these pretty little eye jewels. These FREE group gift eye jewels can be worn with mesh or classic avatars. The gift includes a left and right attachment, and a hud that allows you to adjust the jewel color, and the metal color. The SlackGirl group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however I’m certain you won’t be disappointed, there are several group gifts still available including the ones I’ve shared here.

I will admit, I don’t often wear earrings in Second Life, but I think these are beautiful! These art deco looking earrings are one of several FREE group gifts out at Swallow. These beautiful earrings include a color change hud as well, and can be resized using the hud. I’m sure you’ve been wondering about the pretty butterflies floating around my hair! These are another FREE group gift at Swallow. This butterfly headpiece comes in several colors and can be sized via touch menu, I of course chose this orange color because it reminds me of the Monarch butterflies I love. At the original size this accessory is more of a hat, but I used the resize scripts and scaled mine down to look more like a fancy fascinator. The Swallow group also has a one time join fee of just 30 lindens. This is a steal when you consider the lovely group gifts available!

Finally, if you like the pretty face Pru has on with the red eyeliner that goes so well with the lipstick from SlackGirl, it’s another of the Corrie gacha appliers Essences has available for just 75 lindens per play at The Liaison Collaborative ! There’s more info about this head applier in my previous post here.

Life’s a Beach

Life's a Beach

I’m stopping in to make a quick blog post before hitting the waves to give you the 411 on a great find at the Cart Wash Sale. Ayva’s Attic has out some absolutely outstanding men’s beach shorts. There are two that are standard mesh and two that are made specifically for Aesthetic Avatars. Each pair of shorts is only 10L each and come in all the standard sizes. (Ladies there are four really pretty dresses on the cart for you as well too.)

I picked up my FREE cap from Fe Style as the June group gift. The group is FREE to join. It includes a resize script for easy fitting.

I also wanted to show you (yes yet another) Suicide Gurls tattoo, because they are just really fabulous. And this one matched my beach shorts. This one is the March group gift and is called Dahak and is (as you can see) pretty flowery. It is unisex as are all the others and includes system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza and Slink. Just as before you get fresh, faded, and soft.

Okay… off to the beach for the day for me!

Something Steam(Punk)y!

Something Steam(punk)y

I’d never miss a chance to try out a new character, cosplay, or fantasy! Though I admit, I’ve never done steampunk. So when I saw this amazing hat at the NSP Florals Cart at the Wash Sale (and only 10L — Woot!), I was all a twitter! It was a chance to put together a steam punk look with a great accessory from top quality designer and once I had the top hat on, I was thrilled!

I love the combination of rich fabrics, florals, and metal feathers! Then it was off to adventuring at a steampunk sim! (If you have time, check out New Babbage — I linked you below… very cool place!)

But don’t be mistaken! The NSP Floral Cart at the Wash Sale is not just steampunk! Oh no! Versatility is the name of the game! This creative creator is offering up several gorgeous vintage hats (with the hair included!) as well as beautiful floral accessories that could easily finish off a stunning modern gown or top off a Gothic vampire’s ebony tresses.

The possibilities are endless and at only 10L per purchase, you won’t want to pass any of these beauties up!

Summer Days

Good evening, FabFree Folks, I hope the Monday is treating you well. After a long weekend, I’m back on the hunt for new designers, great bargains and freebies. I was tickled to see that two of my favorite “Known” Designers both have new Group Gifts out and they match!

hudsons_001

This is the “Ruffle Dress” from American Bazaar and it’s the girls group gift for June. American Bazaar Didn’t forget the guys, there is a nifty pair of board shorts out for y’alls group gift too.  I am in love with the feminine frills and the light summery look of the dress already but add a great hat and shoes… oh yeah, now we’re talkin’!  Hudson’s Clothing has their new June group gift out and it’s not only a beautiful picture hat, it’s shoes ( for SLink High Feet)  and two pretty bangles as well.

HudsonsCollage

This is the Floral Flair Almond Accessories pack and it looks as if it was made to wear with this dress. The hat has lovely floral fabric around the band as well as a fabric flower. As pretty as the hat is, I love these shoes best! The details are perfect and the colors will take it from Summer to Fall with ease.  If that wasn’t enough, you also get two onyx black and gold bangles to complete your look.

Here’s the details and happy shopping!

The HeatWave Event : Encore! Plus a little Damselfly ;)

Hey there, FabFree Folks! I’m betting you know by now that the Wash is all heated up with the Heatwave Cart Sale. If you haven’t checked it out…. why ever not? You’re going to find a ton of great designer’s Carts full of 10L bargains and one 50L item plus a few Carts are treating us with free gifties too!

Encore_001

This is the ‘Sophie’ maxi dress from Encore’s Cart and it’s one of the 10L items. It’s a beautiful build with the fresh summery colors and it moves perfectly when you walk. And only 10L? Awesome!

Encore_002

When I saw this cool stripy maxi, my very first thought ( after – I GOTTA have that!) was “This needs a sweet picture hat!” And just as I was trying on the dress, Damselfly  popped up a notecard with their new Group Gift for the ladies: ‘Miranda’! Talk about timing! You get the gorgeous hat with the attached hair in all the HUDs. Plus Damselfly’s group is free to join.

Encore_003

Oh, and before I forget… Encore has a great 10 color nail set for both SLink and Omega as another one of their 10L items. Goes perfectly with the maxi, dontcha think?

The HeatWave Cart sale at the Wash runs until June 10th so don’t delay!

Boho Fedora

Fedora final

Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope you’ve all had a good week and are making fun weekend plans. Speaking of the weekend, this super fun outfit would make great weekend attire for going out with friends. I usually pick out darker colors and patterns, but I just couldn’t help myself with this one! lol

Have you ever had the urge to throw on one of your significant other’s hats? I do all the time! Finally I got brave and have bought one or two of my own. This greenish-gold fedora reminded me of that. Fedoras are my favorite style of hat to wear, and sometimes having one a little over-sized is fun. This unisex hat is a current FREE gift at Fab Free Headquarters from Couture Chapeau, and it has a re-size script to fit just about any size. There’s no need to join a group, (though we’d love it if you did!) just head on over to FFHQ and pick it up.

Also at FFHQ is this pretty skin from Hankii Pankii. The bright fun make up is part of the skin, and this FREE gift includes several appliers including Slink and Maitreya, as well as a few more. Considering the colorful nature of the outfit, I knew this skin would be a perfect fit!

I’m not sure which part of this FREE group gift from ALB Dream Fashion I like best, the top or the shoes?! If forced to decide, I’d probably pick the shoes, but it would be difficult. I love the bright colorful patchwork pattern, it’s fun and summery. The top also allowed me to show off some skin, which for me really means showing off the tattoos I like so much! Not wanting to show quite so much skin? I think this loose-fitting crop top would look great with a solid colored tank under it as well.

Next, I adore this bumble bee manicure from Nail Me!. Talk about a fun manicure that is perfect for summer! This set comes with toenail appliers too, so  your tootsies can be as cute as your fingertips. In addition there are appliers for Slink nails, and an Omega applier. This set is the Nail Me! contribution to the Birds and Bees Hunt. The BBH is a 1 linden hunt.

The cell phone I used with the pose from Velvet Poses is now a Marketplace dollarbie from No Cabide. Not only is this cell super cute, it comes with a texture change hud so you can match your phone to more of your stuff! Skyler showed this cute phone originally in one of her posts here. She also included a close-up of the texture change hud!

Like the “Selfie” pose from Velvet Poses? You can get a pack of 5 selfie poses (phone  not included) for just 50 linens at the ToBeOutsider event. That’s just 10 lindens per pose!

Whew! That was a lot of stuff! Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt!

Greetings fashionably fabulous ones!

My  post today is ALL about The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt!  This hunt is based on the classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring Audrey Hepburn.  It’s one of those movies that stands the test of time and did it with fashionable flair.  I won’t give away to many details of the movie, in this post, just in case you want to watch it.  The link I am providing, for The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt, will take you to the page that will give you photos of the hunt items from each creator, SLURLS and hints.  The hunt consists of clothing and home decor items…which I will feature today.  ALL items in the hunt are FREE.

In the first shot I am showing the fabulous outfit from Brii Underground Wear (#5 on the hunt list) and it includes the jacket, pencil skirt, glasses (not worn), makeup (not worn), peeptoe shoes (not worn) and hat.  The Suitcase with Telephone is from Resplendent Rose (#9 on the hunt list) and the projector, table, extra movie reels, tub sofa, cat with no name, record player and projector screen are all part of the Audrey Cinema Set hunt gift from Arcana Antiques & Oddities (#15 on the hunt list).  The cigarette holder, from Bloody Mess, is no longer available.  My Zebra Peeptoe Heels, worn in all photos, are from Babydoll (#95 on the hunt list) for the Sexy and I know it Hunt.  The Sexy and I know it Hunt ended on May 18th but the hunt symbol and shoes were still there when I checked earlier today!

Next we have an outfit from Vips Creations (#42 on the hunt list)…this oufit comes with the pearl necklace, bracelets for left and right wrist, pearl ring (Jewelry not worn), glasses, polkadot dress, clutch, opera gloves & heels (not worn).  The Audrey hair, I’m wearing in all photos, is from Ali&Ali (#21 on the hunt list), the tiara with earrings are the hunt item from Redrose Jewllry (#22 on the hunt list) and the pearl necklace and bracelets are the hunt gift from Eye Candi (#10 on the hunt list).  The Tiffany Tea Table is the hunt gift from Peachy (#53 on the hunt list) and includes the table, chairs and all the sweet goodies on the table.  *I’ll be featuring the rug and Audrey room divider in other photos.
