Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Electric Love

Electric Love Hello again Fab Free’rs, I’m happy to be here, thanks for coming by and checking out the blog today! I’ve got some exciting things to share with you. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, we have started involving Second Life’s wonderful designers again and part of that involvement has meant some generous Fab Free exclusive group gifts. One such gift is this two piece skirt and sweater outfit from Pretty Kitty Design. Though the outfit is cute enough on its own, I added the most recent gift from Nar Mattaru. I’m a sucker for cute Halloween stuff, and this fun Halloween themed face tattoo was just too cute to resist.

Starting with the outfit from Pretty Kitty Design, there’s so much to tell you about I’m almost not sure where to begin! The top and skirt come in standard mesh sizes, as well as fitted sizes for specific mesh bodies. Each piece can be worn separately or together for the complete look. Now here’s where it gets even more interesting. The outfit includes a unique color change system called ARCTIC Tech that is exclusive to Pretty Kitty Design. What is ARCTIC you ask? It’s a hud driven color change system. This system has the ability to continually cycle through a spectrum of colors at random or allow you to choose a specific color that will not shift until you change it. If you’re having trouble visualizing what I’ve described, I understand! You can see a working demo at the Pretty Kitty Design main store. It really is cool to watch as the colors in the clothing shift. The ARCTIC Tech color change system changes the “colored” parts of the outfit only, the black materials will remain black. This FREE Fab Free group gift from Pretty Kitty Design is available to all Fab Free group members, just wear your tag. If you’re not a member yet, don’t worry the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

Next up, as I mentioned above, I found the group gift from Nar Mattaru too cute to resist! This gift is an applier for Catwa heads only. In the applier you’ll find several small under-eye tattoo options that include images such as this cute little bat under Pru’s eye. There are 8 total goth/Halloween themed images in the applier. To change the color of your tattoo, which is white when applied, you’ll need to use the main hud included with your Catwa head. Within the Catwa hud, you have the option of manually adjusting the cheek makeup color, this will let you change the color of your tattoo to anything you choose. The Nar Mattaru group has a one time join fee of 149 lindens. You’ll find this cute Halloween themed gift available along with a previous gift behind the counter at the Nar Mattaru main store.

I hope you enjoy these fun gifts! Here are the details.

She’s The One

She's The One
Hello there Fabulous Readers! Ripley and I are back in a special edition, mid-week post to share another Fabulous Find which we discovered on one of our SL journeys.  Before I get into the details of my outfit, I’d like to begin with this sweet collection of poses from One Creations.  A free gift for Fab Free group members, this four pack contains static poses perfect for snapping photos or just plain looking lovely!  These worked fantastically with my Maitreya mesh body and were just right for capturing the perfect picture.  To add the “Body Language” pack to your pose collection, all you need to do is join the Fab Free Group (and with ALL the lovely FREE gifts, group members have so many benefits!), then teleport over to One Creations and give the gift board a tap.  To join the Fab Free Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer, and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .

After work tonight, while I was walking my fashion-seeking canine, he caught that oh-so-familiar scent of a bargain.  As I followed my furry friend, I wondered what his nose was leading me toward, and I was pleasantly surprised when he sat himself down and stared up at this Plunge Neck Skater Dress from the Culco Boutique.  The soft drape of the skirt and shimmering color of the fabric combine to create an alluring, feminine dress that is sure to please.  I love the way the horizontal band in the center accentuates the waist.  The gift contains appliers for mesh bodies as well as fitted mesh for classic avatars.  Best of all, this dress is free to Teleport Hub Group members.  There are lots of gifts available to Teleport Hub Group members, so the 10L joining fee really pays off in the long run.

After slipping Ripley a doggy snack, (I had to reward his hard work!), we headed over to The Free Dove to search for the perfect accessories.  There, just inside the front entrance, I spied the Twisted Hoops earrings display from Earthstones, and Ripley wagged his tail in approval.  Calleja Fairey first introduced Fab Free to these glittering earrings in her post here.  The gold and pearl hues of these free baubles accentuate the shade of my frock.  It’s hard to see the delicate texture of these earrings in my pictures, but trust me, they are gorgeous!

Next, I scoured my inventory, seeking a necklace to coordinate with my hoops.  Out of 100,000+ items in my inventory (after 8 years in SL, things have gotten a little out of hand there), you would think I could find the perfect match, but alas, it was time for more shopping.  Big grin!! From The Free Dove, we hiked over to Cae and tried our luck at the Whimsy gacha machine.  For 75L, you can win a necklace or earrings in one of 10 shades of beads with a color-change HUD that allows you to choose from 3 metal types.  Rip must be my lucky charm, because on my first try, the machine rewarded me with this charming Whimsy Necklace in Champagne.  Before I got that glazed “gacha” look in my eye, Ripley gave a gentle tug on his leash and led me off to Luane’s World, one of his favorite SL locations, to romp and play.  While he chased dragonflies at the water’s edge, I snapped these photos to share with you.

I hope the rest of your week goes well, and look forward to chatting with you again soon on Sunday.  As always, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Baubles! and Stripes


I’m always thrilled when EvelineInTheBox sets out a new group gift, and I was not disappointed with the latest giftie. This pretty shirt with its upward dipped front, rivets at the neckline, and colorful stripes is not only fun, but also beautiful. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh sizes for a multitude of mesh bodies, including: Maitreya, Hourglass and Physique, Freya, Isis, and Venus. It fits like a dream and since the group is FREE to join, the gift is completely FREE as well.

I paired this boho reminiscent style shirt with a pair of earrings that I felt had the same feel. I picked up the Baubles! gift earrings FREE as a group gift as well. This group is also FREE to join. There were two other gifts setting out for you to enjoy… another pair of earrings as well as a pretty necklace.

Fields of Gold

Snapshot_001Good day Fabulous Readers!  Have you heard about The Good Gorean Hunt?  Full on gorean wear is not my usual fashion, but I do like to take little bits of fashion from different style categories and add them to my usual look for a change.  I really like how it turned out today!

When I heard that The Good Gorean Blog was celebrating five years and was hosting a free hunt, I checked out the hunt prizes and there are several items that I quite liked!  In my photos, I am wearing the Alethea Gown that I picked up at Posh Tales for The Good Gorean Hunt.   It comes with a texture change hud that allows for a ton of different colour options as well as you can wear or remove the cape.  This is a fitmesh creation and comes with an alpha layer if you need it, so it should fit on whatever body you are in whether it be system or one of the mesh bodies.

I also made a stop to Aisling and looked for the hidden “G” icon and was pleasantly surprised that it was a beautiful jewelry set called Alyse.  Alyse includes the necklace shown as well as a pair of matching earrings that are unfortunately hidden in my hair :/.  I promise they are just as lovely as the necklace and WAY worth the time it takes to find the hunt icon🙂.

Not Just Another Fantasy

Not Just Another Fantasy

Halloween is the perfect time to fill out your fantasy wardrobe… and 7 Deadly s{K}ins is making that a little easier this month with two excellent fantasy skins as their group gifts. You first saw the Ladies gift shown off [HERE] by Sheidey. But the men were not left out this month.

If you are a group member (the group fee is 150L) you can pick up the men’s gift at 7 Deadly s{K}ins in the fantasy tone shown above. It includes 3 versions… a clean face and 2 different white bearded versions, each with different brow options. Included in the package are appliers for slink hands and feet as well as the slink body appliers and omega appliers as well. Be sure to hit “accept” when you see all the pop ups, as the omega package does come separately from the slink package. You don’t want to miss getting the extra box.

I also picked up this very nice FREE necklace as part of the Men Only Hunt. I thought it had a fantasy feel and decided to include it in my post. This is the gift from etham and is a fairly elaborate and well made silver and blue design on a black cord. It would be an excellent addition to any gentleman’s wardrobe. Just teleport to etham and hunt down the iconic beer symbol and this classic pendant is yours FREE.

Blowin’ in the Wind

Blowin' in the Wind
As the breeze tousled my Haruka hair from Argrace and Ripley playfully pounced on some tumbling leaves, I paused, savoring the stormy atmosphere. I snapped this picture and thought back to earlier in the day.  While I was sipping my morning coffee, Ripley had clambered up on my lap and given me *that look*.  As he hung half-on and half-off my lap (silly dog, he still thinks he can fit!), he nosed the group notice from Damoour on my screen.  Sure enough, his instincts led us to another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.  When we arrived at Damoour, we noticed that there are actually four gifts set out.  The group costs 20L to join, but just this skirt alone is worth the joining fee.

Today, I sported Valerie, a sweet mini skirt with a jaunty chain belt and racy circle cut outs in the side.  I paired the skirt with Christi, a strappy top from Cartiera Designs, which has a color-change HUD jam-packed with 28 hues.  Gladiator boots from Ben’s Boutique (also color-change) and Kosh’s Multiplex pendant rounded out my outfit.  A Marketplace dollarbie first blogged here by Calleja Fairey, this necklace includes an easy-to-use menu that enables you to personalize the initials on the center bead and alter the texture of the cord to coordinate with your outfit.  The dark, edgy feel of my look cried out for a tattoo, and I found this simple Tribal Arm Band from JT Tattoo on The Marketplace for only 10L.  It has appliers for mesh bodies and also can be added on the tattoo layer of classic avatars.

With mission “Fabulous Find” accomplished, Ripley and I journeyed over to the rural Kekeland sim for a late-afternoon stroll on its winding gravel road.  I had to distract him from attempting to herd a rogue flock of sheep on our path, but he happily diverted his attention to some leaves dancing in the wind.  Soon after I captured this photo, the spattering of raindrops forced us to return home before we got caught in a downpour.

I hope you found something in today’s post to inspire you to create your own Fabulous Find.  Until next Sunday, happy shopping!

Bubbling With Excitement Over Fabulous Gifts

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Today it was time for Ripley’s annual visit to the V-E-T.  He was due for his rabies shot and a few other nasty pokes, so on the way home, it was time for some shopping therapy.  Aren’t I a lucky girl to have a pooch who loves bargain-hunting as much as I do?  After the promise of “Ripley-snacks,” my hound with a nose for fashion quickly tracked down two Fabulous Finds that we’re “bubbling” with excitement to share with you.  Ripley didn’t have to search far…these goodies include two gifts for Fab Free Group members.

To join the FabFree Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .  There are so many wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free members, and the list is growing every day!

Bubbling With Excitement

For our first Fabulous Find, I slipped on the free, sleek Karmyn dress from #Bubbles.  With two curve-hugging silky mauve sides connected by a creamy, lacy panel, what’s not to love about this dress?  Its soft colors are sure to flatter any avatar.  A quick jaunt over to the Free Dove yielded my accessories which are a free gift set from Chop Zuey.  The purpley-pink tone of the center gem stone surrounded by gleaming diamonds perfectly echoed the color scheme of my dress.  With an application of subtle matte lipstick from Birth, Nefertiti eyeliner from Euphoric and Star Bliss nail polish from Livia (only 10L on The Marketplace – score team Ripley!), I’m all glamm’d up and ready to go!

Somewhere Between Love and Friendship

Of course, after a morning at the animal hospital and bargain hunting, Ripley was ready for some well-deserved R and R at the lovely “A Painter’s Link” sim. He brown-bagged his Ripley-snacks and I brought along a picnic lunch to enjoy underneath a shady maple tree. For this outing, I needed a more casual outfit, so I combined Candys Capris from Cartiera Designs with two of our other finds of the day: the strappy, pink spiked shoes from Living Vintage Couture (another Free Fab Free Group Gift) and SG Apparel’s Rhapsody Gypsy top. The fun, unusual shoes left my fresh French manicure from By Snow (0L on The Marketplace) free to sparkle in the dappled sunshine. My pink crop top coordinated perfectly with my shoes, but if pink is not your color, the top comes with a color-change HUD with several other options. This top is a featured item in this week’s Fifty5 Thursdays sales line up. The sale runs through Sunday, but some designers keep up the sale items up for an entire week. All in all, these separates combined to create a fun, playful outfit for our afternoon leisure time.

Right now, Ripley is snoozing away his active morning, but I’m sure he’ll wake up soon raring to seek out some more Fabulous Finds to share with our wonderful readers. Until next time, happy shopping!
