Slowly Going Nowhere

Slowly Going NowhereHello again Fab Free’rs! Finally it’s starting to feel like fall where I live. I’m excited to be able to dig out more of my fall wardrobe. Until now, my virtual wardrobe has had to support my love of cold weather clothing. That said, I also find I spend more time outside when the weather is colder. There was something interesting in unique about the “Acid Rain” group gift from Death Row Designs. While definitely not the ideal patio furniture, it certainly tells a story. I also styled my outfit for the cooler weather using a dollarbie hunt prize sweater from Vindiktive.

Role-play is such a huge part of Second Life, and even though I rarely participate in that aspect these days, I’m always inspired by creations in SL that lend themselves to storytelling. After all, story telling is essentially what role-play is all about. This FREE group gift chair and umbrella set from Death Row Designs does just that. The “Acid Rain” set of ruined furniture is highly detailed and has both male and female poses for the chair. Also included in the gift are two hand-held umbrellas which are not shown. When I saw this gift, I instantly thought about where these items had been, who they belonged to, what had happened. It made me think of situations where this furniture fit the scenario, like a post apocalyptic environment. The story started to unfold. That’s why I chose to share this unique gift with you. The Death Row Designs group is FREE to join, just wear your tag and click the gift vendor to get this gift.
THLH VindiktiveNext up, you guessed it, my sweater loving soul found another sweater! This one is the “The High Life Hunt” prize at Vindiktive. I’m not often a fan of high cropped sweaters, but this one I adore. I like the fall colors of the plaid, and the material texture looks like it would be soft and warm to the touch. I even like the mock turtleneck. This hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so the sweater costs just 1 linden. There are no groups to join, just head out to Vindiktive and hunt it down. Included in the package you’ll get the sweater in standard mesh sizes, as well as body specific sizes for Slink Physique, Slink Hour Glass, Maitreya Lara, Bellezia (Isis, Freya, Venus), and TMP. With all the sizes included, this top should be easy to wear for most mesh and classic avatars.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Make it Quick

Make it Quick Hello again Fab Free’rs I’m back for a quick post about the Fall Tears Hunt item at Sevyn East. I picked up this super cute 1 linden hunt prize the other day while I was also picking up the Sevyn East group gift I blogged here. I thought this skirt with the suspenders and the sleeveless top was too cute to not share it. It is plain but the subtle difference in the textures of each part are what make the solid black outfit work. This pretty mesh dollarbie includes the outfit in standard mesh sizes only. The hint to help you find this FTH prize is “I can be a little nosy.” Don’t wait, this hunt ends September 30th!

Happy Hunting Fab Free! Here are the details.

Tori-tastic!

Tori-tastic Hello Fab Free’rs I’ve got several things to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it! I love this complete look, and I hope you do also. I had really hoped to get an “out and about” style photo of the complete look, but my computer/internet connection have other ideas! Ah well.

Starting with the romper Pru has on, I loved the pattern of the material and the bright colors. This low cut halter style romper is the Women’s Hunt prize you can find at Maci. The hint tells you to find Carmen to find the hidden dollarbie hunt prize. In the box you’ll find several mesh fits including classic mesh sizes, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Eve (Slim, Pulpy), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), and TMP. Not to mention I think this romper is great for showing off the white henna style tattoo from Letis that Pru is wearing!

Next, I am forever in love with the shoes from Empire! These thigh high strap-y creations are the August group gift for the Empire VIP group. The gift comes with a full “fat pack” color hud so you’ll have the ability to choose from any of the standard Empire shoe colors. Also, you can color individual parts of the shoes differently to match your outfit. The gift includes a Maitreya, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) , and Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) foot and body fits. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens which may seem steep, but if you’re as crazy about shoes as I am, it’s beyond worth it. You’ll not only get access to these shoes FREE, you’ll be able to pick up several of the past group gifts as well.

As if this cute little outfit needed any more sass, I decided to add in this blue toned face piercing by Suicidal Unborn!. It’s like the cherry on the sundae! This septum/Marilyn combo is perfect for something subtle, and the blue color makes it a little more  unique than other similar piercings. You can find this piercing set for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Scrabble

Scrabble

This 1L hunt gift from The Man Cave was just what I needed to spell “classic look” and I took that to heart for a break and a game of Scrabble. You’ll find this gift as part of the Fall of Man Back to School Hunt. When you land, give the area a bit of time to rezz (you’ll find yourself at a landing point) and head to The Man Cave store to look for the Book that is the 1L Prize.

Inside the box you’ll find two different packages, though each contains the Jayke outfit (both this classically styled shirt with the matching pants). The shirt comes in a tucked-in or un-tucked version and the pants fit nicely with boots or dress flats. One box will contain a mesh outfit with alphas for a standard system avatar, the other will contain the same mesh outfit to fit a variety of mesh bodies, including: Adam, Aesthetic, Slink, and TMP.

Have a Flirty Summer

Zalea JLZ

Hi there Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone had a spectacular weekend! Mine was good, but I’m glad to be here doing one of the things I love, sharing fabulous freebies with You. Today I put together a real cute casual warm-weather look with the aid of some FREE hair from Zalea and a dollarbie jacket and shirt combo from JLZ Fashion.

This wavy hair style from Zalea reminds me of those beachy hairstyles you always hear about this time of year. Everyone wants that “fresh from the beach” look, and I think this style gives you that. This specific dark auburn color version of this style is a FREE subscriber gift available at Zalea. To get this gift join the subscriber first. Then click the box below the subscriber button on the subscriber. This will bring up the notice history. Once you get the history menu, choose option 2 (the notice about the fatpack sale) and then choose deliver. You’ll get a box with a note about a sale, and the hairstyle will be included in the box. Unfortunately the sale has ended, however the FREE hairstyle is still available.

When I was looking for things to share here on the Fab Free blog, and having some trouble finding things, Love told me about this summery mesh top and jacket combo from JLZ Fashion. If you have been looking for something cute and casual, and you love floral prints, this is the find for you! The mesh jacket/top combo is JLZ’s contribution to the Flirty Summer Hunt. The FSH is a dollarbie hunt, so all the hunt gifts are 1 linden. This hunt prize comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as fitmesh for Isis, Freya, Venus, Lara, TMP, Physique, and Hourglass bodies.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Entice at the Creations for Parkinson’s Research Event

Red White Blue

Hello There Fab Free! I have some special items to share with you today, that I’m sincerely excited about. Everyone knows I am a shopaholic, sales, gifts, and awesome deals are always exciting. However, when I can combine my love of bargain shopping with the ability to contribute to a noble cause, I am beyond excited!

Creations for Parkinson’s Research is having a Red White and Blue themed event where we can all do just that. Entice is one of several designers participating in this event with exclusive items and a hunt item that will donate 100% of their proceeds to Parkinson’s Research via the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Some items will also send 50% of their proceeds to Parkinson’s Research. Seriously, if that’s not Fabulous I don’t know what is! To go along with my Fantastic finds at the Creations for Parkinson’s event, I also picked up the FREE June group gift from Empire, which does not disappoint!

Going back to the Creations for Parkinson’s Research items from Entice, the red, white, and blue maxi dress pictured to the left is the event exclusive. This lovely summer dress is just 50 lindens and all of the proceeds from purchasing this dress will benefit Parkinson’s research. The dress comes in several mesh sizes, and includes alpha layers, there’s definitely something to fit just about any size and shape. I paired it with these chunky flats from REIGN and I think it’s adorable on! The second dress, also from Entice pictured in the center is the 10 linden hunt item. This fun little party dress also comes in several mesh sizes for easy fitting. The proceeds from this cute dress also go toward Parkinson’s research.

**Please note that the Creations for Parkinson’s Research Red, White, and Blue event ends June 6th.

With two new dresses in hand, the allure of FREE shoes at Empire was irresistible! The June group gift at Empire is this pair of delicate slide-on heels with full color change hud. These are super pretty, and just the right type of heel that can be worn with both casual and dressy attire. The Empire VIP group does have a one time join fee of 499 lindens, however you will have instant access to the current and past group gifts upon joining. Just don’t forget to wear the group tag! The group gift includes shoes fitted for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP feet.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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.

Mello Lemonade

Hey There Fab Free’rs! After a rather long weekend, I’m back and I of course have awesome goodies to share with you! First, who doesn’t like a good up-do this time of year? It’s been muggy in my part of the world thanks to the unusual amount of rain, and the last thing I want is my hair making me feel hot and sticky. This messy bun is the current group gift at a hair shop called Mello. The Mello group is FREE to join, so this cute style is absolutely FREE, you just need a group slot. The gift includes a color change hud with a wide variety of pastel colors.
JLZ Floral Halter Additionally, I picked up this sweet little tie-back halter top at JLZ Fashion. This mesh top is their dollarbie Flowerage Hunt prize. The Flowerage hunt started a few days ago, and Astrid showed us another of the gifts in her post here. This cute floral top is also excellent for keeping cool as the seasons become warmer. The top is fully mesh, and includes many mesh sizes, there’s definitely one that will fit just about any avatar shape. You’ll definitely want to head over to JLZ Fashion and hunt down this adorable dollarbie.

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.

His & Hers at Ruby's

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!
