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.

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)

You ain’t here to kiss me

You ain't here to kiss me

Hi! Have you seen the billions of free gifts at Hilly Haalan? Literally. Billions. I just used literally to mean figuratively, I hate myself a little. Regardless, there are lots of pretty free things. When you land at the store, you’ll be in front of the most recent group gifts. But turn around and there’s a little building overflowing with more group gifts. The majority of them are for the Hilly Haalan group, which is free to join. The rest are for other groups, many of which are also free to join.

Rozina

The dress that I’m wearing today is one of the free gifts for the Hilly Haalan group. I looooove the bow on the back, so I pretended to watch an airplane take off so that I could show it to you. I’m very sneaky like that. The front is lovely too – it has a plunging neckline and is gathered prettily at the waist. There are sizes for:

  • Hourglass
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • 5 standard sizes, XXS-L

Sorry and you’re welcome for all of the awesome clothes you’re about to add to your inventory! ❤

Daydreaming of Lisa Frank

Dreaming of Lisa Frank
Hello hello Fab Free! Summer in the southern part of the U.S. (and just about everywhere else from what I understand) has become synonymous with blazing heat. It’s hot out ya’ll! It’s easier to stay cool when you can lounge in the shade wearing a cute little summer dress and open-toe shoes. Both these summer wardrobe essentials are free group gifts you won’t want to miss.

The DressHilly Haalan has more than one free group gift available. The dress Pru has on is the “Debbie” dress. It comes in several sizes, and includes a texture change hud with quite a few graphic tee style options and an equal number of solid colors to choose from. The Hilly Haalan group is also free to join at this time. This fun yellow version with the leopard spots made me instantly think of Lisa Frank. Don’t know who Lisa Frank is? Google her. You’re welcome in advance for all the colorful rainbow goodness. P.S. There’s a copy of the original vendor ad for the Debbie dress toward the bottom of the post.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

The Shoes – These fierce looking purple shoes from Heels are almost as hot as the weather! I kind of want to wear them with everything. The Heels by Morgan W. group is free to join at the moment. These shoe come in the deep purple color shown with a few size options.
Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Discoveries at Dawn

Dawn of a New Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a lovely Sunday.  Before the weekend is over, I want to tell you about two group gifts that I came across early this morning in my SL travels.  Although I chose white for the dress, it comes with a texture HUD packed with 15 options, including prints and solids, so it’s very versatile!

Dress to Impress

The free Katie Dress from Hilly Haalan Fashions features a sleeveless design with loosely draping fabric which is gathered at the waist with a belt.  A v-shaped neckline and a small gathered section in the skirt add visual interest.  I really like the soft shimmering texture of each of the solid colored options for the fabric, and look forward to trying out the pretty floral prints, too.  The belt is colorized separately from the body of the dress, which really adds to the variety of looks you can create.  The gift package includes versions for a variety of mesh avatars (no classic fits).  To pick up this free July gift for yourself, simply teleport over to the shop, activate the Hilly Haalan Fashions group tag (it’s completely free to join), and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Fabulous Shoes That Can Lift Your “Sole”

Of course, what would a new dress be without a pair of heels to go with it?  Selene Creations has you covered with their free July group gift, which is a strappy pair of sexy high heels.  With plenty of wiggle room for your toes and a criss-cross design, these ivory shoes would challenge my navigational skills in real life with their high, narrow heels, but in Second Life, walking and even running in them is a piece of cake!  The package includes Belleza, Maitreya and Slink fits.  You do have to be a member of the Selene Creations group to receive these, and joining costs 100L, but they are just so pretty!  Here’s a close up so you can get a better look at them:

Chase Your Dreams....In High Heels of Course!

I’m off to finish exploring Snuggles Forest with Ripley.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Coffee Helps
Hey hi hello Fab Free’rs! It’s true what the sign says “Life happens, coffee helps.” At least that has been my experience. If you’re a coffee drinker like myself, there’s a lot to love about this cute decorative rug group gift from Zen Creations. I’m also really enjoying this top. It’s one of three recent group gifts at Hilly Haalan. Keep reading for all the info about these fabulous freebies!

The Rug – This fur rug is a FREE group gift from Zen Creations. The coffee and the pen have poses attached to them. The rug will give you a pen prop or a coffee mug to hold depending on which pose you choose. I just used my own pose to take this photo. The Zen Creations group is FREE to join.

The TopHilly Haalan has 3 FREE group gifts out, and this fun warm weather top is one of them. The top comes in several mesh sizes and has a color/texture change hud with tons of options. This particular option just seemed to suit my mood at the moment! There are graphic print options as well as solid colors. The Hilly Haalan group is FREE to join, so do not miss this! Also, there is an alpha layer included so this top is suitable for classic avatars.

In Hindsight

FreedoveHillyHaalanSometimes all you have is hindsight

In hindsight…  This is what I should have done when the snowflakes started to fall.  I am so very jelly of the people that pack up in October and head south for the whole winter season!  Hang in there Northerners…  There are just three short months of this icy freezing mess to go (maybe four :/)!

Hopeful Visualization

As I was imagining myself getting the heck out of winter dodge, I was stylin in my new Maggie Gee Outfit by Hilly Haalan that I had just picked up at The Free Dove as a free group gift.  The Maggie Gee outfit can be worn all in one piece as a set or you can wear the jacket or skirt as separates.  Probably the most exciting news about this gift is that it comes with a 30 texture option HUD so you the fashion opportunities are endless!  The Free Dove group is free to join and as I am sure you already know from previous posts on FabFree that there is a massive amount of freebies to be had in that building.

Sizes Included:

  • Entire Outfit XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Solo Skirt XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Solo Jacket XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer

btw…  Also in hindsight, I am so glad I took a trip down to The Free Dove, because it had been a few weeks since my last visit and there are plenty of new items!

All Dressed in Black Black Black

All Dressed in Black
We made it through Christmas Fab Free! What a fun but hectic holiday! Christmas may be over, but there’s still plenty of reasons to celebrate and have a good time. New Years Eve is coming up in just a few days. I personally always look for gold and silver sparkly things to wear for a New Years Eve party. This year I like the idea of this calf-length black dress from CHAIN and these stiletto booties from Hilly Haalan, both in black. Not only are they ultra sexy, they are FREE group gifts just in time for a party.

CHAIN

This dress. I don’t think I really need to gush about how pretty it is. Right now it is one of several FREE group gifts at CHAIN. The CHAIN in world group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.  The Sally Dress comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from black, silver, or violet. There are also 2 versions of the dress, one with the body chains as shown in the photo above, and one without.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Hilly Haalan

I wasn’t sure how these detailed ankle boots would look with the Sally dress when I picked them up as a group gift at Hilly Haalan. Honestly, I love the two together. I think you could just as easily wear these awesome shoes with a pair of fitted jeans and a swanky top. These shoes are one of three group gifts currently available at Hilly Haalan. The Hilly Haalan group is FREE to join at this time, and all the group gifts are conveniently located at the landing point.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, N-Core, TMP

Get This Party Started

Get This Party Started

I love holiday parties. Good food, good friends, and everything is so bright and shiny. I just wish we could get this party started.

Part of the problem could be that I’m the first to arrive. I’m not sure if I’m too early or if everyone else is just fashionably late.

Guess I’ll just stand here awkwardly with the food until someone else shows up. :-/

Black and Gold

I’m decked out tonight in a new party frock from Hilly Haalan. The sexy, strapless Kaylee Dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

The gorgeous statement necklace I’m wearing is the latest group gift from Maxi Gossamer. Click for a menu to change the texture from gold to silver, the beads from white to black, or to resize. Matching earrings are included.

Oooh, I think I see someone… “Hey, Love! Over here, Love!!”

/me waves madly

“Oh… sorry! I thought you were someone else.” 😳

First Flurries of the Season

First Snow

Hello Fabulous Readers!  As the flakes of snow drifted slowly down from the gray sky, I encouraged Ripley to walk a little faster so we could make it home before the sun set completely.  It is getting dark so early now, and I wanted to be home near the crackling fire.  With his thick fur coat, he seemed blissfully unaware of the chill in the air.

All Wrapped Up

Lucky for me, I had a scarf draped around my neck to help keep me warm.  This lovely wrap is a free gift for members of the Hilly Haalan Fashions group.  It even includes a texture change HUD, which allows you to select from 10 hues.  Each option features the same paisley pattern, and you can color the fringe to coordinate or contrast with the main fabric of the scarf.  It is resizable, and comes with a regular and a “more breast” version.  To pick up this neckwear for yourself, simply teleport to the shop, switch to the Hilly Haalan Fashions group tag (free to join), and tap the vendor.

It’s All About the Comfort

My long sleeved shift dress from Store Aeyres on the Marketplace is loose-fitting and cozy.  This style of frock is great for most body types, and depending on how you accessorize, it can be suitable for casual, every day wear, or dressed up for an evening out.  Priced at only 50L, the package included the garment, as well as blue and green eyes for classic avatars, a crystal ring, earrings, a vintage pendant, shoes, a face light, and a color change HUD packed with a rainbow of selections.  For my picture, I chose just to wear the frock and keep my look fairly simple, so I didn’t try out any of the extras.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!
