Spring Fling

Spring Fling

Spring is definitely in the air  now, FabFree. Even here in the RL things are blooming and the soft breezes are blowing. I’m stocking up on tissues for allergy season….  But that part aside, I’m all for the lighter days ahead full of flowers and sun dresses.

Spring Fling

Hilly Haalan must be ready for Spring too since she has set out this lovely little sun dress covered in flowers for the free March Group Gift. This is the ‘Alanis Romance’ dress from HH along with the cute pink purse and shoes. I love getting a set all together, it’s just so smart. And if that wasn’t enough, there are two patterns of the dress included in the gift. Hilly Haalan has another group gift out that Kathryn showed us right here. So put on that group tag and get over there!

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XXS-L
  • Fitmesh

Why Walk If You Can Dance?

Alice

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week got off to a terrific start yesterday.  I’m happy to be able to tell you that Ripley made it through his surgery and is back home resting and recovering.  He surprised the vet tech by chewing through his first catheter – silly, spunky boy!  Right now, after he was shaved for his ultrasound last week, and again yesterday on his two front legs and around his incision, he looks a bit worse for wear, but I am grateful to have him back home.  We will know more in the next week or so if the surgery was successful.  Thank you so much for your kind words of support.  They touched my heart.

Since I had some extra time while hanging out with my exhausted pal, I was able to discover some gifts that I am excited to share with you.  One is this gorgeous dress, which I picked up as a free Women’s Day gift, and the other is a sultry dance animation that cost just one little Linden dollar.  Even though I’m nowhere near as skilled as Love with her editing skills, I had fun making a little video clip to showcase the dance moves, and I hope you enjoy it!

First, The Dress

With its high neckline and long sleeves, you might think the Alice Dress would be on the “plain Jane” side, but its sexy slit, golden eyelets and tied lacing add spice and intrigue.  I love the way this little number clings to your curves and dips dramatically low in the back.  The fabric itself contains subtle ribbing and realistic folds.  The hemline falls just to the upper thigh, so you might need to make strategic use of the alpha layer on your mesh body while out and about.  Although I opted for black, there is also a maroon version tucked inside the gift folder that is just as appealing.  To pick up a copy of this frock for yourself, teleport over to the Hilly Haalan shop, activate the Hilly Haalan Fashions tag, and tap the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Next, The Moves

Humanoid Dance Animations, one of my favorite animations stores on the grid, celebrates the return of Angie by offering the slow, sexy Angie_16 dance for just 1 Linden dollar.  It’s fascinating to watch how Angie’s dance animations are captured from real life, so I’ve linked Humanoid’s video below.  Here’s my little clip of how the dance appears in world:

 

 

Thanks for reading and watching.  Happy shopping!

Happy New Year, indeed!

Happy New Year, indeed

We are a week and a half into the new year but I think it’s still time to say “Happy New Year”! Why not, right? 2019 is rolling along and I still want it to be “Happy”!

Happy X three

Hilly Haalan must agree because there is not one, but three “Happy New Year” free gifts set out for us. They are all lovely but this one is my favorite. This is the ‘Katelyn’ sweater and the ‘Kylie’ leggings. The gorgeous scarf is removable and resizable for a perfect fit. The gift also has a fantastic pair of stiletto heels to match. Just join the Hilly Haalan group, which is free to join, and help yourself to a ton of great current and past gifts. You will not be disappointed!

The Lady of Misrule

The Lady of Misrule

Tomorrow is Epiphany!  That means the 12th day of Christmas, bringing the end of the season, alas!  In the days of yore, one used to celebrate with a cake that contained a bean (many people still do!) and the person who found it was crowned the Lord or Lady of Misrule.  That would mean you could order everyone else about for the night!  I am that Lady of Misrule, and I command you all to go forth and get some freebies!

Showcase your Skills

It’s Designer Showcase’s 8th anniversary, and they’re celebrating with all sorts of gifties!  I joined their group for free and got a boatload of great new things to pad my inventory with.   There are gowns, jumpsuits and dresses galore, so make sure you stop off and grab it all!  Here’s what I chose to show you today:

  • FREE Satin Dress by Hilly Haalan sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya and Physique
  • FREE Shoes by Oh Pair!  sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Venus
  • FREE Lipstick Applier by Alma Makeup with appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and Omega

Now, because I am the Lady of Misrule, you really must obey my command, so get over to Designer Showcase and glam yourselves up!

Happy 12th Day to you all!

Don’t worry, you’ll get used to my wickedness

FabFree: Don't worry, you'll get used to my wickedness

Hey there Fabulouses!  Hilly Haalan has two new free group gifts out for the month of October that both include a little black dress and a matching pair of heels!  Alaya Suspender Dress & Heels for the usual mesh body suspects as listed below and Brianna Dress & Heels for classic avatars and slink feet!  As a bonus, this group is even free to join!

Two Outfits For The Price Of None!

In my photo, I am wearing Alaya, and the dress is a little hard to see all bunched up in my photo with the pose I have chosen, but I have also included the vendor ad below so that you can see this dress clearly, and also the gift for classic avatars too.  The choker, suspenders and belt are part of the dress and the shoes are trimmed with gold!

Peek-a-Boo

Peek-a-boo

Hello again FabFree’ers! I hope your weekend was wonderful and that your Monday is good as any Monday can possibly be!  I am excited to be starting another week of freebie and offer hunting for you all.

Oh Carolina!

Today I am sharing an item that is still out for 55L Thursday, and likely to be so for another couple of days but even so, if you want it, you shouldn’t delay.

Virtue is one of my favourite places to go for classy, ladylike, well made items of clothing, and this top does not disappoint.  It is a brand new release and comes in a variety of shades, and this white colour is on offer for just 55L.  I love the little ties at the wrist, the length is just right and I was able to wear it over many different bottoms without any bleed through – which is a real bonus as far as I am concerned – I love versatile pieces I can wear with lots of different wardrobe staples.

It comes in a humongous list of  sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya & Venus
  • Slink Physique
  • Large, medium and small for Classic Avatar (alpha included)
  • Tonic fine and curvy
  • Ocacin & Ocacin Voluptuous

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja
Eyes – Avi-Glam 
Hair – Bonbon Mina
Top – Virtue Carolina (55L Thursday)
Leggings – Neve, Deedee, poetry
Shoes – Phedora Sorcha Flats
Pose – Foxcity Autumn
Background – part of Maya’s Autumn House

Indecisive in Sevilla

FF2

Hello again Fab Free’ers! I hope you  have had a Fabulous week, and that your weekend is off to a good start.  Ready for another free dress?  Keep reading!

Roxanna

I recently shared with you the Hilly Haalan group gift Nadia gown, here.  Today I am bringing you their other new group gift, the Roxanna dress. This dress comes in plenty of sizes and with an extensive texture change hud.

Sizes Included:

Maitreya
Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
Slink Physique & Hourglass
Fitmesh for Classic Avatar (alpha included)

Decisions, decisions

I love love love texture change huds but as an annoyingly indecisive Libran, they give me too many options to choose from and then require me to make – loud gasp – a decision!

I can honestly say that all the choices in the Roxanna hud are lovely, and all very different, both in the colour of the top and the pattern of the skirt.  Which of course made my decision even harder, but this combo kept calling to me, so one decision down.  Then I had the issue of finding the right shoes in the perfect shade, but that is another story for another day…..

Sevilla

Zsa popped to Sevilla for her shoot today, via Minimal, who have a set of 2 backdrops in today’s Saturday Sale, well worth picking up at just 70L for the two.

What is Zsa wearing? 

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Lelutka Chloe
Applier – Pink Fuel Anja
Eyes – Avi-Glam 
Hair – Murray, Demi
Nails – Alaskametro “Flowerpress” nail art
Dress – Hilly Haalan Roxanna (free group gift / 0L / free to join)
Shoes – Essenz Slovakia
Bracelet – Noir Peace Bracelet
Backdrop – Minimal Sevilla (70L for Saturday Sale)

Rebel Rebel, put on your dress

Rebel Rebel

Hello Fab Free’ers!  I am really excited to share with you the first of hopefully many fantastic freebies.  I’ve read the FabFree blog daily for years and it’s a real honour to have been accepted as a FabFree blogger.  I have always loved hunting down freebies, cheapies and bargains, and will enjoy it even more now that I can share my finds with you all!

Talk to me!

Feel free to contact me if you want any more details on something I post, or just to chat, or to tell me about some awesome freebies, cheapies or bargains you think I need to know about!

Redheads should never wear green

Who says?  Honestly, this is one of those silly rules I grew up hearing.  Redheads must steer clear of wearing anything green.  Pfft.  Sometimes rules are just meant to be broken, and this is definitely one of them, and that is why Zsa is a proud to be a rebel!

Beautiful simplicity

Even though I disagree with the redhead/green rule, I am a big believer in the old adage that less is more, and this beautiful gown, one of the newest group gifts from Hilly Haalan, demonstrates this perfectly – so simple, so classy.  Hilly’s group gifts are always such a treat.  Nadia is a beautifully flowing gown that gives you an amazing silhouette, reminiscent of the movie stars of the 40’s.  As she often does, Hilly has generously given us not just one colour but a whole hud full – 15 colours in fact.  So, in effect, 15 beautiful gowns for free!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Standard Large & Standard Small (alpha included)
