Trade Wind

Trade Wind

I found a set of his and hers gifts that are really just stunning. They remind me of early morning sunrises, warm beaches, love letters and all the good things in life. I know that definitions of happiness are different for everyone, but a great find of excellent clothes is surely a win either way:)

In the picture above, I’m showing you the Runway Perfect Hunt gifts from Miss Darcy’s. A little bit of hunting time at the main-store for the black and white prim, and just 5 little linden, will score you this beautiful his and hers set.

The lady’s dress includes the skirt and top (they are separate pieces) in all the standard mesh sizes. I love the details of the bow on the skirt, and the tied waist top. Alphas are included for standard avatars.

The men’s gift includes the matching pants and jacket in all the standard mesh sizes, as well as an optional system Tee shirt to wear under the jacket if desired.

The gifts come in one box, so no need for hunting down two separate hunt prims.

His & Hers at Ruby’s

With the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt ending May 15th, you still have a little over two weeks to pick up some of the really amazing prizes. Loki and I stopped by House of Ruby and picked up some… wardrobe essentials today.

His and Hers at Rubys 1

If you hunt down that iconic hunt symbol, this sensual pink body suit is yours FREE as part of the hunt gift at House of Ruby. It comes in both Omega and Slink appliers. It is sheer enough that to share it with you, I had to wear a hair that would cover bits😉 , but it is a beautiful body suit for any lady to add to her virtual closet.

For the guys, House of Ruby is offering these cheeky lowered trunks with a “bunny” print. These too are FREE as part of the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt. Like the women’s gift, they come in Omega and Slink appliers… but this also has system layers, sure to fit any fella’s clothing needs.

A Touch of Magic

A Touch of Magic

Do I sense magic in the air? Maybe! But I definitely sense FREE gifts!

If you stop by ALB you can pick up this beautiful and whimsical Jenna dress in all the standard mesh sizes as well as a fitmesh size as a FREE to all gift. No group is required (as of the time of this publication). Just buy the dress for 0L. There is a second dress pattern in the box that is just as lovely.

A Touch of Magic 2

To add to the whimsical appeal of this lovely dress, I picked up a hunt gift from Tantalum Jewelry. In case you haven’t checked out any of the stops for the Hunt for Your Inner Slut hunt yet… try starting with this one! You won’t regret picking up this FREE beautiful stone pendant on its silver chain. The stone itself is texture change with 15 different stone textures (I’m showing you a purple texture but there are so many more) and you can also adjust the glow, shine, and more! To top it off, like all of the gifts from this hunt, it is FREE! Don’t wait… hunt it down!

Get Dirty With Me

Get Dirty With Me

I’ve been doing some hunting! But you FabFree’ers get the benefits😉

I recently stopped by Kreepshow Kouture where I discovered that they were participating in two hunts… and giving two really great gifts. This fun store with its terrific style has a gift for you as part of the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt FREE which is pictured above. The Get Dirty With Me dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Physique. I love the little off the shoulder strap.

I paired this dress with a set of spikey-topped black and silver flats from the 1L Biker Hunt. I picked up the Heidy flats at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes for just 1L as their gift for the Biker Hunt. This generous gift actually has two sets of shoes for your 1L in the box. You get both the Heidy flats pictured above as well as the Helga boots pictured below for your 1L. The Heidy flats fit slink flat feet. For the boots, I just removed my feet entirely and they fit either a classic or mesh avatar very easily.

Get Dirty With Me 2

While I was at Kreepshow Kouture I also picked up another hunt gift they had hidden for us shoppers. The fun Nom Nom dress above is part of the Evil Bunny Hunt and is only 1L if you find the hidden devil egg. Like the Get Dirty With Me dress, this dress too comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Physique.

Happy Hunting!

I am a Wolf

Wolf

Hello again Fab Free! Glad you could visit! For this post I’ve got a fun group gift from Tres Blah, something pretty from Persefona, and a little bit of sparkle from Alaskametro. This simple yet playful style really makes me feel like summer. It gets hot hot hot where I am in the next few months and a tied-up tank top is definitely a wardrobe requirement for lazy afternoons when you want to keep cool.

This particular top is the FREE group gift from Tres Blah. It is fully mesh and comes in a wide range of sizes as well as several colors. It also appears a little shorter in this photo than it actually is due to the pose I’m using. The Tres Blah group has a 100 linden group join fee that grants you instant access to this gift, and several past gifts. Needless to say the one time fee is well worth it!

These pretty white roses nestled into a wreath around Pru’s head are the most recent group gift at Persefona. The flowery gift is FREE to all group members and the Persefona group is FREE to join. Flower accessories are so fun this time of year, it makes me want to be barefoot somewhere with soft cool grass! This head wreath can be re-sized via click menu for easy fitting.

Of course I had to add a little color in, these sparkly red nails are the On9 Anniversary Hunt prize from Alaskametro. This pretty nail polish set is FREE, and includes 5 glittery colors, appliers for fingers and toes, as well as Maitreya, Slink, and Omega options. You’ll definitely want to head over to Alaskametro and find the cupcake hunt item for this FREE manicure/pedicure set. The colors are too pretty to pass up!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

In The Harsh Light of the Day

In the Harsh Light of the Day

Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m feeling very Morticia Addams in this awesome dress from MoDanna, and I love it! This black leather gown is low in the front, low in the back and fits like a glove. It comes in several mesh sizes including specific body fits. The slight flare at the ankles gives it an added touch of goth-y elegance. To get this dress, simply wear your MoDanna group tag (the group is FREE to join), head to MoDanna, and pay the gift vendor 1 linden.

Modanna Dark 9

To go with the gown from MoDanna, I picked up this gorgeous eye-shadow from SlackGirl. It’s their FREE On9 Anniversary Hunt prize. This gold shadow with a smoky wing from SlackGirl comes with several color options each with the gold base. Additionally this hunt gift comes with appliers for just about every mesh head available, including some I was unaware of. There are also system layers for classic avatars. If you want to continue the hunt, head to On9 and click the cupcakes at each vendor booth for a folder with a hint and a landmark to each main location where you’ll hunt down your FREE cupcake containing the hunt prize.

For the final touch I picked up these beautiful winged-heart earrings are a 10 linden gift at the Dark Side event. The earrings by Indulge Temptation are highly detailed re-sizable mesh, and well worth the 10 lindens. You’ll find them in a gift box at the Indulge Temptation booth at the Dark Side event.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Casablanca Style

Casablanca Style

The Fame and Fortune Hunt… doesn’t cost a fortune. In fact, it’s a 1L hunt. And my 1L snagged me this pretty snazzy suit which I then used to tour the remake of Casablanca here in Second Life. The suit is pretty perfect for it.

This Garonga Men’s Suit created by Sparrow by Design comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is of an excellent cut. What really impressed me though was the textures. The one piece suit has a sheen on the pants that shimmers and changes in the light as your avatar moves. I’ve never actually seen anything quite like it on another men’s suit. All in all for 1L, this is not only flashy… it qualifies as old style Casablanca classy. It’s certainly not a modern suit, but it is stylish and well worth hunting down.

Be Your Queen

Be Your Queen

The Femboy Hunt really captured my interest, as it features some terrific creators and beautiful prizes. I found that while creators were offering prizes that are geared toward the femboy demographic, several work great for us gals as well!

I took a stop by !Majestic! main-store and picked up the 2L Femboy Hunt prize there and was rewarded with this gorgeous Surprise Bitch Robe. The robe comes in two colors — the animal print shown, as well as a red that is not shown. The robe comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh. It is suitable for both female and femboy avatars. I did add on my Maitreya panties to make it suitable for sharing with you here on FabFree😉 .

I took a quick look around the store and discovered that !Majestic! also had out a really fun and beautifully made FREE group gift as well! This Be My Queen headphone/crown set is FREE with your  FREE group membership and is a jewel fit for any queen! The details on it are superb!

Easter Sundae

Easter Sundae

It’s the start of Easter Weekend, and there are lots of fun spring-time goodies to be had around the grid. Whether you celebrate Easter or not, you’ve got No Eggscuses to not pick up this cute little dress. It’s the No Eggscuses Hunt prize at Serendipity. Aside from being a completely adorable mesh dress, the gift is just one linden if you hunt for it, or you can simply buy the dress for 25 lindens and skip the hunting part! Either way, this strapless dress from Serendipity an adorable springtime dress at an awesome price. You’ll also find a men’s prize as part of the No Eggscuses Hunt at Serendipity, so the guys can participate in this one too!

To go with the dress, I wanted some jewelry that was equally cute without being overdone. Izzie’s Easter bunny jewelry set was the perfect thing! I love these dainty pearls with the simple bunny ears, they are classic and cute as can be! You’ll find this earring and matching ring set on the Marketplace for FREE. The gift from Izzie’s includes the set in gold, copper, and silver. Easter or not, these are too pretty to not have them in your jewelry box. You can check out the vendor photo below for a closer look!
Izzie's - Bunny Pearl JewelryI have to tell you I’ve been eyeing this double bun hairstyle by Olive for weeks now. It’s their Arcade gacha item, and at 75 lindens per play I’m really glad I gave in and played the machine. This mesh hairstyle has tons of color hud options to be had, and a rare “glittler roots” version. Again, the style is 75 lindens per play, and since it’s a gacha the hair is transferable so you can swap with others for the color you want!

Last but never least, shoes! I won’t wax poetic about my love for shoes, this time, even though these chunky pumps from HOC Industries are worth the effort. These heels come in a Maitreya fit, Slink Fit, and include a hud that allows you to change between quite a few colors. Another fun addition, the ankle straps can be hidden to change up the style a little! These pretty pumps are just 1o lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy, and Happy Hunting!
