Beautifully Basic

BDRGGs
Hey Fabulous readers!! I have had a crazy busy week and have been a bit absent from the grid, but I did come across a couple of things that I wanted to blog up really quick for you because they are must have basics for any woman’s inventory, no matter what kind of body you are wearing!

Beautiful Dirty Rich has two free group gifts out right now with no join fee!  The Dreamer Jeans are displayed on the top, and the Absence of Fear Jeans are displayed on the bottom.  The main difference between the two pairs is that the Dreamer Jeans are a little lower in the waist.   Both of the gifts are denim blue jeans that come with a ton of options like different pocket styles, ankle cut or sock cut, and a trillion appliers that will work with most mesh body systems.  They even come with system layers in case you are mesh bodyless.

There are three things that I really like about applier jeans:

  •  They apply directly to your personal shape allowing you to show off your own curves.
  •  Sometimes wearing a mesh top or jacket interferes with mesh jeans.  This solves that issue.
  •  They easily sit inside any pair of boots because you can use the alpha system to clear some leg away if need be.

ps.  The Halter Top is also by Beautiful Dirty Rich and I picked it up, including a texture change hud with tons of choices for 1L just next to the group gifts.

I’m beachy keen, thanks for asking!

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I thought I’d show off a little beachy fun, as I realized that’s it’s been a few months since I did a post in a bathing suit! For shame!! Wasting all this lovely summer time without a good bikini photo shoot. Well, that is now remedied, let me show you what I got!

beachy1

The Groovy bikini, matching sarong, as well as jewelry that I am wearing, are all Marketplace L$1 promo’s from Iffyta, and are all texture change with provided HUD’s. For L$1, you get the mesh, 2 piece bikini, necklace and both bracelets, as well as a pair of shoes, which I am not wearing, HERE. For another L$1, you can get the matching sarong, HERE. All of these pieces come with an 8 choice texture HUD of super fun and colorful retro prints. I really had a hard time choosing which one to show off. If you love the texture choices, you will be interested to know, that there is a pair of stiletto ankle boots, and a fun little sun dress that are also in this Groovy line, and are both only L$1 as well! You just need to look at the bottom of the pages I linked, and you should see the links for the other items. Really, you should just check out the whole store page, as there are many other free and L$1 promo’s available, not to mention many other under L$75 finds. These promo’s are a limited time special, so don’t wait too long to look them up.

beachy2

One of the reasons why I chose the pattern on bikini that I did, was because of the shoes I wanted to wear. These pink and wood beauties are from KoiKoi, and unfortunately, the owner of KoiKoi is closing the store’s doors as of the end of the month :( Luckily for us shoe lovers, she has decided to reduce the price of all those beautiful shoes. For only L$50, you can pick out any single pair of shoes in the store, such as the gorgeous Filament Pink clogs I am sporting. If you can’t decide on a single colour, and just love them all, the fatpacks are set to only L$200, and these are all way more customizable with an included colour change HUD that lets you change individual parts of each shoe. Either way, I was a happy shoe-camper! As I said, you only have until Aug 31, so get your shoe-loving booties over there.

My other reason for choosing the texture on my swimsuit, was how well it went with the beautiful skin I am wearing. The Niska in Sangria is another lovely skin offering from one of my favourite skin stores, Lumae. As part of the most recent Lazy Sunday, you can snap up each skin tone for only L$75 a piece. I happen to be wearing my favourite tone, Rosy. As always with Lumae’s Lazy Sunday items, these will be left out for an extended time, and actually, you have until Aug 29 to grab these, as Lumiya Rae happened to put the skins out just a little bit late! We won’t fault her for that though, will we :) These skins come with every applier you could possibly hope for, and the orangey red shade of the lipstick and eyeshadow is so pretty, how could you not want one of these skins? The only thing missing…is an actual sangria!

I wonder if I could get a waiter out this far on the beach? *Waves her hands and helloooo’s* Alright lovelies, I am going to see about getting myself a fruity drink. I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again, this same time next week! Until then, TTFN.

Wonderful Wednesday

Good Morning, FabFree Folks! We’ve made it half way to the weekend! That deserves a little pat on the back and a reward of some kind. Don’t you think? And what better reward than a round or two on a Gacha machine!

sahara's_001

This is the Natsu collection from Amaz’s in the Sahara’s main store. There is a lovely range of colors for the handbags, shoes and dresses. Everything from bold black print to soft pastels. The handbags do not have poses so they won’t interfere with your AOs, the shoes are for system feet, plus the dresses are fit mesh with an alpha. This collection really is for every ‘body’. And at only 40L per play, you can collect a bunch!

Formal… with a chance of dragons

Hello and happy Tuesday, my FabFree folks!

tiffanyjpg_001

After several posts of cute and casual, I was starting to feel the need to remind myself what classy and elegant felt like. And as luck would have it. I found just the thing while I was shopping, of all places…. the Thrift Shop. If you haven’t been ‘in the know’, the Thrift Shop is a regular event and this round began on August 8th and runs until August 29th. That’s 22 days of 50% ( or so ) off the gathered designers and two massive rows of Gacha machines for us addicts.

I found this gorgeous purple evening gown in Tiffany’s Designs’ booth not for 50% off… but for FREE. This is the Lavish Mesh dress in purple and it’s free for everyone, no group needed. You get the five standard sizes and all this elegance.

The other thing I had to have from the Thrift Shop was this wonderful little dragon ear cuff. I hesitated to show him off with such a formal dress then I thought, yeah… that’s something I’d wear together in real life…. ‘Cause you know, you can’t get too stuffy when you’re going formal. ;)
tiffanyjpg_002
This is the ‘Dragovar Ear Cuff’ from Ecru and he is only 10L at the Thrift Shop. The little dragon comes with both a right ear and a left ear version and a HUD with eight metallic colors. He is clearly meant to be worn with ‘human’ type ears but a little futzing with the edit controls and I had him fit to my own pointy ears easily enough. I have a feeling I won’t be taking him off any time soon.

You have until the 29 of August to go check out the Thrift Shop so don’t delay!

Weekend’s End

Why do the weekends go so fast? Wasn’t it just Friday?  Oh well….

August heat

At least we still have a few… well…. two more weeks of August left. hat means you still have some time to run over and pick up this nice casual jeans and top from Prism. This is the Naquita by Journey and it’s the group gift for August. You get both the jeans and the top for the gift. I love the little leaf details on the jeans and the top’s asymmetrical look.

Prism is a FREE group to join and there’s always a ton of Hunt going on and past group gifts up for grabs. Plus, there’s a nice men’s clothing section for all you guy – types!

FDD At The Fantasy Gacha

fdd

The Fantasy Gacha just opened up for another fresh round of goodies and I was tickled because I love to play dress-up!  I made my way down there last night to check it out and while it was a little tough to finally TP into, I managed after a handful of tries and fought my way through the crowd to play the heck out of the FDD Stories Trissa Machine!

This set is fitted mesh and is compatible with Maitreya, Slink and the system body.  The rare and ultra rares come with texture change huds so you can mix and match these items up for different looks with the 8 common pant options and 4 common gloves.  It really didn’t hurt a bit to pay the 75L per play, because I feel like a million bucks!

Sassy and Brassy!

It’s almost Friiiday! It’s almost Friiiiidaaaay! *does happy little dance*  Ahemm… yes, okay… must be professional…  Hello again FabFree Folks, it’s almost Friday and that has left me feelin’ pretty sassy. And wouldn’t you know it, Mrs. B’s Designs is here to offer up the perfect top for feelin’ sassy.

allure_004

This is the “Have a Wicked Day” crop top from Mrs. B’s. Pink and sweet and just a little cheeky. The top comes in a blue guy’s version for our brazen boys too.  At just 5L on special sale, it’s an easy add to the wardrobe.

So, I have the top I need some cute shorts to go with it. Allure is just the place to go to solve this dilemma. These are the “Daisy Denims” shorts and they are just one of the many many group gifts all around the store. The Allure VIP Group is FREE to join and wow… there are so many gifts I couldn’t believe it!  Then to add to everything, the quality of the mesh is just wonderful!

AND I get new hair?! Best almost Friday ever! The “No Night” was seen here first.  No Night comes with a HUD with five ‘group exclusive’ colors.

As y’all know by now, special sales and group gifts can come and go like the wind. So if you like the look then hurry hurry, my sassy dears!

What’s Black and White and Read all over…

….why, my blog post of course? *Waits for the groans to subside* Well, happy Thursday everyone! Trust me, my bad joke is not in vain, as this week, my blog post really is black and white…with a little bit of RED all over. I’m channeling my inner rockabilly, black and white movie star this week, both literally, and figuratively.

B&W1It all started with my dress. Before I go on, let me start by saying I got all my fabulous finds on the Marketplace, kinda. I’ll explain what the kinda means, a little bit later. Close-ups of each item are in the collage below. Oh yes, back to the dress. This gorgeous, retro coat/dress is from Angel DELUXE, and you can find it HERE on the Marketplace, for only L$9. It’s called the Poablack Rockabilly Coat, and it’s kind of like a wearable demo, except you can also get a demo for free if you’d like to try it on first. There are other versions of this beauty available, just not for the sweet L$9 price! It is mesh, and fits the standard sizes :)

My next retro-esque item is from [BE]lieve, and it is these sexy red heels I am sporting. When I saw the polka dots, while scrolling through pages and pages of shoes, I knew these were the ones. The aptly named Red Spiked Bow Heels are for SLink mid feet, and are non-rigged mesh, so you adjust their positioning if need be. I think they are a steal at only L$20, and the Marketplace link for them, is HERE. As an aside, the listing for these shoes says they are a 24hr promo only…but, I got them on Aug 5th, and as of today, they are still the same price. So they might be a permanent promo, or it’s just taking the creator awhile to change the price again, and if that’s the case, don’t wait to grab them if you love them like I do! I mean come on….spiked bows!

The last item I am featuring is my beautiful grey-toned skin. Now, this is where the ‘kinda’ comes in. You can find the lovely Film Noir Dame skin from Oddment on the Marketplace for a small sum of L$30 HERE. In the interest of full disclosure…I have actually had this skin in my inventory for many, many years, almost as long as I’ve been in SL. Do not let this persuade you that the skin is old and outdated…even after all this time, it is still beautiful. So no, there are not any appliers provided, however, a grey-tone is super easy to match, trust me! I almost did not need to use the ankle and wrist tattoo layers to blend my hands and feet, they were so easily matched. I have gotten a lot of wear out of Ms. Film Noir, and was super excited to see it still available, when I just happened across it recently, in a random search on Marketplace. Hooray!

B&W2

With a few more added touches (a few FabFreely priced, L$75 or under) to complete my outfit, I think I totally rocked my rockabilly/retro tv movie star look! Don’t you? How lucky was I to find a red phone booth for my main picture? LOL. With the fogginess of the W/L setting I chose, I felt like I was in a horror movie, with a monster, or zombie ready to pop out from behind the booth at any second! OK, now I need popcorn, this sounds like a great movie night! *grins*

OK lovelies, that is it for my post this week. I already have some thoughts in mind for next weeks post, so you keep an eye out next Thursday! Until then, TTFN.

Wind Swept

Hello and happy Wednesday, FabFree Folks!

Wind Swept

Every now and then, a designer puts together an outfit that evokes a mood in me the minute I see it. This is the August group gift from AnaMarkova and I knew it needed a wind swept beach to show it off properly. This outfit comes with the skirt, the belt, the top and the loose sweater… all as one piece in the five standard sizes. So you save an alpha slot or two. I topped it off with the Winteria necklace from Pure Poison. You might recognize the necklace as a past group gift. We saw it waaaaay back here in Love’s post.  But it is still available along with a bunch of other gifts.  A little something old and something new….  all adds up to something wonderful.
