Time To Accessorize

Accessorize

I am so glad it’s Friday, Fab Free! It’s been a long week and I’m thankful the weekend is finally here. I’m ready to have some down time and maybe go out with some friends. After all, that’s what Friday nights are for, right?! Not to mention it gives me an excuse to dress up a little. Pretty accessories are one of my favorite ways to dress up an otherwise casual outfit. Which really means I get to wear my  tank top and jeans to girl’s night and still look super cute!

For a limited time these layered beads are on sale at Indulge Temptation. You can pick up a set for just 60 lindens that has a color change hud with 8 color options per set. There are 6 color sets to choose from. Pretty beads are so versatile. You can wear them with your evening wear or dress up your day wear with them. Not to mention with all the color options available you can find a set to match anything. Don’t miss out on this limited time offer at Indulge Temptation!

In a perfect world I would have a purse or clutch of some kind to go with every outfit I owned, and they would of course magically transfer all my stuff from one bag to the next! I think this clutch from Glow Designs is too cute. The clutch is their contribution to the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt going on through January 31st. The prize also includes a gold version if silver is not what you want. Just head over to Glow Designs and hunt down the 10 linden cupcake.

In addition to cute accessories, the right hairstyle is essential if you want to dress up an otherwise casual look. This hairstyle from Little Bones is really beautiful. The best part? It’s the newest group gift from Little Bones, so it won’t cost you a fortune. The gift includes a dipped color change hud with several color options with black ends. Right now you can join the Little Bones group for just 100 lindens. There are several previous gifts still available as well, just wear your group tag to claim them.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Appliers Please!

Lushish Full

Hello again Fab Free! 😀 I don’t know about yo, but sometimes I want to wear applier clothing with my mesh body rather than mesh. With appliers I can still look fab and not have to worry about alpha cuts. Most of this cute applier outfit Pru has on is a recent group gift at Lushish Catz. The outfit comes with system layers as well, so you don’t need any mesh at all to wear the clothing. Both the lacy black top and the dark washed jeans are included in the FREE group gift at Lushish Catz. The jeans have a unique quilted pattern, and the sheer lace top is daring to say the least! I chose to add the red tank top underneath the gift top for some extra coverage. I think the end result is really pretty, though I’m not always as bold as some! To get this top and jean combo, just join the Lushish Catz group and pick it up for FREE. Please note that there is a one time group join fee of 50 lindens. Oh! Before I forget, the appliers included for this outfit are Slink, TMP, Maitreya, Lolas, Lena Lush, Phat Azz, Omega, and Belleza.
Lushish Lips

To go with all the black lace I wanted some ruby red lips! The most recent round of The Dressing Room just started and I found this gorgeous lip applier set from #adored while shopping. This pretty “liquid lips” applier pack comes with 6 shades ranging from this deep red to pink, and orange. The set costs just 70 lindens per applier type. I purchased the Omega set to use with my Catwa head. I actually like that the applier made my lips appear a bit smaller, it reminds me of that 1920s style lip! There is another set of lip appliers from #adored available at The Dressing Room in a pack of purples and blues if red and pink aren’t your colors. I’m seriously considering going back for that set as well!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Mixin’ & Matchin’

Greetings once again Fabulous Folks.

Mixy Matchy

I am so loving all the Fall related hunts going on right now. I can hardly choose everything I want to show off! So today’s look is a nice mix match of three different hunts that came together soooo nicely.  First are my FREE cardigan and socks from The Cheeky Parrot Boutique in the Warm Socks Hunt. This cozy set comes with the cardigan sweater and the thigh high stockings with the attached shoes.  happily, I had some cute things to complete the outfit in my over stuffed Inventory.

Next is this great bag from Illi. The ‘Hunt Handbag’ is the prize for the 1L “Touch But Don’t Bite My Pumpkin Hunt” which features one of the most disturbing pumpkins I’ve ever seen on their website…. O.O

And ‘last’ is my gorgeous necklace called “The Last Rose” from IT! for the Leaves are Falling 1L Hunt. The beautifully detailed rose comes in four metals to choose from. IT – Indulge Temptation! has been designing several items lately that will match “Last Rose” perfectly… so take a quick look around the store while you’re there.

Mixy Matchy

All three of these Hunts run until November 30th… which is sneaking up on us… so hurry out there and get your Hunt on!

A modern day flowerchild – peace, love and all that other stuff.

flowerchild1

Hello all you wonderful FabFree readers. So, RL has been a little rough for me the past 2 weeks, and while I won’t go into things, all I will say is I really needed a break from it all. It got me thinking though, what I wouldn’t give to be back in the 60’s and become a flowerchild. You know what I’m talking about right? Carefree, happy, peaceful, doing whatever they wanted whenever, and not seeming to worry over much at all. At least that’s what the movies I’ve seen with these types of characters have taught me, and movies are always right…right? In honour of these thoughts of mine, I’ve put together what I think is a modern take on a 60’s flowerchild.

flowerchild2

It all started with me putting in random search words on the Marketplace to find new items to show you all. I happened across a really cute top from Moon Amore. It was the Hey Sexy Lace top in white, and at only L$10, I had to have it. Clicking on the listing for the Moon Amore Marketplace store, I started browsing, and found the lovely high-waisted Vintagmatic Pants in Blue. With the pretty flower pattern, and lace detail on the waist…they were perfect to go with my top. They too were only L$10!. Both pieces are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. I will warn you, the top is semi-transparent. Lighter toned skins will be alright, but I still chose to add a pretty bra underneath.

flowerchild3

Next I needed shoes. I had happened to be wandering around the Boho Culture Fair, which finished on the 2nd, and found the gacha from Elysium with these fun fringed wedges. For only L$50 a play, you get 2 sets of shoes, a solid coloured pair like what I am wearing, and a pair with a cork sole. They are meant for mid feet from SLink or Maitreya. Now, you may ask, why am I telling you about these if the Fair is already closed down? I actually messaged the creator and owner of Elysium and asked her if she planned to put that gacha in her store, and she thought it was a great idea and said she’d try to put it out this weekend. So, if you head to her store and if it’s not there yet, give it a little time and check back. They are totally worth it.

flowerchild4

The last piece to my flowerchild puzzle was funky nail polish, and I had just gotten a notice from La Boheme saying there were new Bi-weekly L$10 polishes out for the start of the month. The beautiful bright colours, and sweet Indian inspired pattern (albeit hard to see in my photo) of the Marakech set, won me over immediately. These will work for SLink, Maitreya, and bodies that can use the Omega applier system, and are for both the fingers and toes. I had a little fun with mine, choosing to do 2 different colours from the hud for SLink/Omega on my fingers. This set will only be at this price for the first half of the month, so don’t wait too long to run and grab it.

So, what do you think? Would I make a good modern-day flowerchild? With my slightly wild hair and being surrounded by nature? Whether you agree or not, you have to admit, these were some great deals, and I can see this being one of my go-to looks.

I hope you have a wonderful Friday evening, or Saturday morning, depending on your location, and I will see you all again soon! Until next time, TTFN *waves*

Lacrimosa

Lacrimosa

I found my Halloween costume! Halloween is creeping closer, and I am super excited! This vampy mesh dress complete with attached wings, and matching mask, is the current group gift at Katak. The gift is FREE and so is the group. Included with this vampish dress are the wings (which are actually part of the dress) and the matching mask. This curvaceous dress comes in a regular fit for standard avatars, a TMP fit, and a Maitreya fit. Also available is a matching costume for the men, making this one half of an awesome couple’s costume.

For the finishing touch to this ghoulish look, I added the dollarbie gift from Indulge Temptation at the Mad Circus Gacha Fair. You’ll find all sorts of loveliness at the festival, including the beauties in the gacha machine for Indulge Temptation, but this blood vial set for just 1 linden was too perfect to pass up! The set includes a pair of earrings, and a matching necklace. I’ve seen a lot of blood vial jewelry in my time in SL, and this one is truly one of my favorites.

Hunting Temptation

IT Anniversary

Hello there Fab Free! I’ve finally made it back from the land of Real World and I’m excited to be here! First, I do want to say my apologies for the very basic photos, Second Life has not been playing nicely with my computer the last several days. Hopefully whatever is causing problems will correct itself soon. That said, I’m so excited about all I have to show you.

Recently Indulge Temptation (!IT!) celebrated their first anniversary in Second Life. In celebration they are having an in-store hunt with 12 fantastic prizes set at 10 lindens each. This is the perfect opportunity to fill your virtual jewelry box with some gorgeous jewelry. There are two complete sets to be found among the 12 boxes. Pictured in the upper right of the photo collage is the complete Luster set. The set includes a color/size change hud for versatility and easy fitting. I think the ring is set for Slink hands, however I had no problem adjusting it for my Maitreya hands. The second set is called Enchanted Rose. The Enchanted Rose set is every bit as elegant as the name suggests. Each piece includes a color change hud to adjust the color of the delicate roses. This set also has several matching hair accessory pieces (not pictured) to be found. The !IT! Anniversary Hunt will end September 30th, so don’t wait!

Lastly, I think the September group gift from Knockers is fabulous all on it’s own, but these sassy sexy shoes are just too perfect for giving the Enchanted Rose jewelry from !IT! a little bit of attitude. Paired with a simple black dress, the skull and rose print heels are so fun. I would also pair them with some skinny jeans and fitted top. These shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. The Knockers VIP group is a one time fee of 150 lindens to join, however monthly gifts and occasional VIP events make joining well worth while.

Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Glitterati Garden

Glitterati GardenIt’s Friday and I’m so glad the weekend is here! I’ve been away due to Real Life getting in the way, demanding thing that it is, and I feel like I was gone a month. It is nice to be back, consequently I’ve got a lot of great things I want to share with you. There are lots of great group gifts out this month, this elegant black gown is the August group gift from Glitterati. The gown from Glitterati comes in standard mesh sizes with a matching alpha layer. One thing I noticed right away is the way the gown’s texture seems to change color depending on the lighting, which I think adds a touch of whimsy to this pretty gown. The Glitterati group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This gown alone is worth the join fee in my opinion, get it while you still can! Glitterati Garden 1One of the great things about a solid black gown is you can add pops of color with your accessories. I love the style of this earring and necklace jewelry set from Indulge Temptation. The FREE set is called “Arabesque” and has a lovely filigree look to the metal parts, complimented by bright teal drops. The “Arabesque” set is the August group gift at Indulge Temptation. Included is a hud so you can re-size the jewelry to suit your avatar. There is a one time join fee of 50 lindens for the Indulge Temptation group, however I think the jewelry set is more than worth the fee.

Now that we have the gown, and the jewelry, here’s something lovely to go underneath. One more awesome August group gift, This lingerie set is from Maniac Store.

Maniac ElephanteThere are several FREE group gifts out right now at Maniac Store. This black lace lingerie set is just one of them. The set is really pretty on, and comes with tons of appliers as well as system layers. The list of appliers includes TMP, Banned, Maitreya, Lolas Tango, Lolas Muse, *Linc, Lush, Lena, Perfect Bum, Brazillia Doll, and Slink. Needless to say there are lots of options for wearing this sexy August gift. The Maniac Store does have a one time fee of 10 lindens, however as I mentioned before there are several gifts out as well as lucky chairs. Lastly, like the 3 poses in the above photo? These too are an August gift, this time from Elephante. You’ll find these fun static poses in the Elephante subscribo for FREE!
