Make it a soulful shade of blue

FabFree: Make it a soulful shade of blue

Hey there Fabulouses!  I’m playing “dress maker” today!  I did take a sewing class once, and I barely passed.. WITH HELP!  Perhaps I should stick to buying dresses, instead of making them.  In fact… how about I just find them for free??

Like this one!!

At I.M. Collection in the group gift area, you will find the Aisha Skirt & Top I am wearing.  Sometimes you need to just look a little professional, even in SL and this dress fits the bill with it’s wool texture and bronze buttons.  This free gift is available to members of the Inventory Trends group and it is free to join!

Sizes Included:

  • Top – Fitmesh S-L + Slink & Maitreya
  • Skirt – Fitmesh S-L _+ Slink (Slink fit my Maitreya too)

*Note that it will deliver a little funny, but you’ll get it!  You’ll see what I mean lol.

Beautiful 50L Hair!

This is a very limited time offer, and I hope it’s still available by the time I hit the publish button, but at the landing point of White River Farms, you’ll find that the White River Co. has the Autumn Dusk hairstyle in the essentials pack priced at 50L!  It comes with a variety of different colours and a texture change HUD for the scarf so you can match up with whatever you are wearing ;).

Sunday Stroll

Sunday Stroll

Hey there, fabulous readers!

I’m out for a stroll in my “Sunday best” and wanted to pop in and show you this adorable new gift from I.M. Collection.

Group Gift 17 was recently set out for members of the I.M. Collection in-world group. It comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

The skirt and sweater are actually separate pieces so you could wear them with other items if you wished.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

I Will Sparkle Like A Wealthy Woman’s Neck

I Will Sparkle Like A Wealthy Woman's Neck

There are soooo many group gifts available to the FabFree group, and they are always being added to and changing. Today I wanted to show you two of the gifts that I think go really well together! To get them, you’ll just need to join the free FabFree group or activate your tag, and head over to each store.

I.M. Collection

How gorgeous is this dress? It’s classy but still fun and sexy. The texturing is truly lovely, I’m really impressed with the quality. It is the free FabFree group gift at I.M. Collection. The dress comes in sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • HG
  • Maitreya
  • Phys
  • Venus
  • and 4 Fitmesh sizes S-XL

Chop Zuey

My pretty necklace comes in silver and gold, but I’m typically more of a silver girl so that’s the one I’m wearing. I think it’s just perfect with this dress, but I could also think of lots of other things to wear it with too! It is the free FabFree group gift at Chop Zuey.

To keep up these and all of the other awesome FabFree group gifts, you know what to do. The list is over there! ~~~~>

Big City vs. Small Town

Big City vs. Small Town
When I was young and brave, I moved from a very big city to a small town. I thought I was getting away from the hustle and bustle, but what I learned was that even the small towns bustle, just in different ways. I miss the big city, but I’m still nearby and can visit!

Wear This Anywhere!

Whether you are in a big city or a small town setting, I.M. Collection will have you covered!  Stop by and pick up the free Fitmesh Fanatics Gift with a free group join in the group gifts area of the store.  You’ll find it just around the corner from the reception desk at the entrance.  This classy one piece skirt/blouse combination comes in plenty of mesh body fits as listed below.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & venus

Fab Free Designer Friday – 02/02/2018 – I.M. Collection

I.M. Collection Exterior
It’s Fri-yay! And of course that means Fab Free Designer Friday here on the Fab Free blog! This week’s post is all about I.M. Collection. At this elegant shop you’ll find both dressy and casual ladies fashion with lots of pretty dresses and cute outfits. As you enter the I.M. Collection shop you’ll see the information desk, the group joiner, and current event information all in the first room. You can also purchase gift cards to the right of the desk.

You can browse through the store to the right or the left. The I.M. Collection shop is easy to navigate, with the clothing displayed along the walls. Either direction will lead you to a room just behind where the desk is located. This room is where you’ll find the coveted I.M. Collection group gifts, as well as other group offers.
I.M. Collection Gifts
There are many group gifts to be had at I.M. Collection. The above photo shows more than ten currently available I.M. Collection group gifts. The I.M. Collection group has a one time join fee of 75 linden. In addition to the numerous group gifts, I.M. Collection group members get a 5% store credit when they shop at I.M. Collection while wearing their group tag. In the same area as the I.M. Collection group gifts you’ll find other group gifts including the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. Serena showed this pretty Fab Free group gift dress in her post “Oh Christmas Tree.” If you’re not currently a member of the Fab Free group, it is always FREE to join.

Rest Stop

Rest Stop

Howdy, fabulous readers! I’m taking a break from my camping trip to share some freebie news with you!

Free Group, Free Gifts!

The I.M. Collection in-world group is currently FREE to join through 31 January 2018. There are so many lovely gifts to pick up, including the jacket and sweater combo I’m wearing. The Snowball Jacket Cream (Group Gift 13) comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies.

After 31 January, the group will be 75L to join. So be sure to head over to the store, join the group, and pick up all the gifts (14 of them, last I checked) before then! 🙂

My Lucky Jeans

Just a quick note about my jeans. They were originally shown HERE by Love, and they’re still available on the S@BBiA lucky board!

You do need to be a group member in order to play the lucky boards, but that’s ok because the group is FREE to join. While you’re there, you can also pick up the lucky board dress and group gift boots I showed HERE last month.

Until next time – enjoy!

A Fabulous New Year’s Eve!

A Fabulous New Year's Eve

The Fabulous Bloggers L to R: Aline Passiflora, Astrid de Manyet, Serena Snowfield, Love Trill, Prudence Rexroth, and Carson Caiben

Champagne and Confetti

It’s pretty hard to get all 6 of us together in the same place at the same time, but we somehow managed to do it this year for New Year’s Eve. Love brought the champagne, I brought the confetti and silly glasses, and as you can see, a fabulously good time was had by all. 😀

What brought us together was this super cute party pose by {NANTRA} Poses, which was sent out as a free gift to subscribers. The gift includes bento poses for 5 people, as well as confetti, three types of 2018 eyeglasses, and champagne flutes for everyone (but not the bottle Love is holding, sorry).

NOTE: Since the pose gift is only for 5 people, and we have 6, I pulled a pose from {NANTRA}’s 2015 NYE gift and popped it on the end. You can see Carson modeling this one on the right.

The Happy New Year Backdrop we’re standing in front of is a free gift from Serenity Style. No group required; just click the vendor and pay 0L.

Carson snapped the above photo before the fireworks began. 🙂

On behalf of all of us here at Fabulously Free in SL, we hope your New Year was a happy one. May 2018 bring you all the joy, happiness, and health you desire. ❤

Oh, Christmas Tree

Oh, Christmas Tree

Hello, fabulous readers! I’m finally feeling the holiday spirit, thanks to some amazing gifts and deals. So hang on to your sleigh – we’ve got a lot to cover here!

Silver Bells

I was so thrilled when I got the notice that LeLutka was sending out their annual Spirit Tree. This year’s tree is a beauty: snowy green with big, silver decorations. And the best part is that it’s completely FREE!

Just join the LeLutka in-world group (NOT the LeLutka For Me users group) and save a copy from the notices. Or head over to the store to pick one up, if you’d rather. Lots of past group gifts are available (including FREE hair), so be sure to grab those as well, if you haven’t already done so.

The Spirit Tree is resizable with a right-click > edit > stretch. Be sure to watch your land impact, because the tree gets more “primmy” as it gets larger.

More Advent Gifts

[CIRCA] Living is hosting their 8th Annual Advent Calendar, and the gifts are really lovely!

This year’s Advent is a bit different:

  • From Dec 1 – 24, [CIRCA] will be offering a new advent item (up to 4 per day) in a numbered square.
  • This works similar to previous years except there is a new in-world group to join: [CIRCA] Living – Christmas Advents. It is free to join – just look for the RED group sign beside the large Advent tree on the wall.
  • You must wear your group tag (see above) to buy the contents of each square, except for the 0L surprise days. Each item will be 1L – 75L for any given day in the Advent tree. You can purchase any or all of the gifts for that day.
  • Sometimes there will be bonus squares on surprise days for an extra gift or color variation for group members, so don’t miss those.
  • On the Eve of Dec 24th, the group will be closed. Those still in the group at that time will receive the final gift on Dec 25th.

Sample items are on display in the store, and more will be displayed as the days go on. Each day’s gifts are only available for 2-3 days at a time, so don’t wait too long to check them out!

I’m showing a few [CIRCA] Advent items here (please note that not all are still available):

  • “Northern Forest” Hanging Christmas Words (over fireplace)
  • “Northern Forest” Holiday Garland 2a -Azure/Silver (on fireplace)
  • “Northern Forest” Stool – Cocoa Trees (right of fireplace)
  • “Frostine” Snowflake Gift Boxes (under tree – still available at the time of this post)

At the time of this post, days 9 – 12 are still available for purchase, including a really cute FREEBIE on day 9 (you want it, trust me).

Holiday Blues

I’m not feeling the blues, but I’m definitely wearing them! Not long ago, we welcomed I.M. Collection to the Fab Free Designer family. This made me happy because I really love their stuff (in case you hadn’t noticed, lol)!

So today I’m wearing I.M. Collection’s new gift for Fab Free group members, which includes both the dress and heels. Dress sizes include Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, as well as a Fitmesh version. The shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh feet.

To pick up your gift, pop on your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and head over to the I.M. Collection in-world store. You’ll find the Fab Free gift next to the fireplace around the corner.

P.S. If you join the I.M. Collection group for 50L, there are 12 MORE GIFTS for you to pick up, as well as one for SLF&O group members. 😀

Look at These Nails!

Look at These Nails!

Seriously, I am really loving these nails from LIVIA. And the best part is that they are a completely FREE gift for the Women Only Hunt 4.

The Snow Royale nail appliers work on Slink and Maitreya mesh hands, as well as hands that are Omega compatible, such as Vista and Tuty (Omega installer sold separately). Four different designs are included, so depending on your hands, you can wear all the same design, or different designs on each finger, as I’m doing here.

NOTE: This hunt allows decoys, and there is at least one that I found in the store. But hang in there; the “real” snowflake is not too hard to find, especially if you have the clue before you go hunting. 🙂

Snow Chains

Before I end this very long post (sorry!), I want to mention my necklace, which was an Advent calendar gift from Snowpaws. The Metal Snowflake Necklace was the gift for day 4. It is not resizeable, but you can reposition it.

Like the Advent calendars I mentioned previously HERE, Snowpaws’s calendar gifts do not expire after one day, so you can still pick up all the previous days’ gifts. There’s an interesting selection of gifts, including jewelry, accessories, and home decor items. All gifts are completely FREE, and you don’t even need to join a group! 🙂

Enjoy!
