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 ;).

I was standing, You were there

FabFree: I was standing, You were there (2 of 2 - Picture)

Hey there Fabulouses! In my blog post today I am featuring a brand new lucky board prize at Apple May Designs!  You’ll need to be a member of the AMD inworld group to participate in this lucky board offer, but the group fee is only 25L making it very affordable… and hey – it’s just once right?  Then you can take part in future lucky board prizes too!

About the AMD lucky board update

There are actually two group lucky boards at Apple May Designs on one, you can find the Seasons Sweater Dress you see me wearing in my blog post in a dark pack which contains four colours (red, black teal and purple) and on the other board is the lighter four pack of pastel shades.  This plaid little cutie is fitted for Maitreya and is rigged beautifully for movement…  as you can see from the video below!

About the video

It’s rare that I like a remake of a song better than the original, but I heard Paloma Faith do a cover of the old INXS Never Tear Us Apart song on The Umbrella Academy and I have had it on replay ever since!  I was inspired to do a little video to show off the new Julia bento dance animations at Move! Animations which is the full line of the dollarbie Julia dance I showed you on FabFree [HERE] and it’s still available for 1L instore btw!

Hello Friend

Hello Friend

Hello Fabulouses!  As the weekend draws to a close, I just had to pop in quickly to share an adorable dress that I picked up as a free group gift.  Since this is a January gift, and the month is drawing to a close, I’m not sure how much longer it will be available.  So, if you like this off the shoulder style mini as much as I do, I’d recommend a trip over to the shop in the next few days.

It’s a Dress……It’s a Top

When I saw the Susie Dress as one of the free group gifts being offered to members of the Jumo Fashion Group, I fell in love with it immediately!  Featuring a lively botanical print (only available in this group gift) splashed across a while background, puffy sleeves and a generous ruffled hem, Susie reminds me of warm summer days.  It certainly allowed my shoulders to soak up some desert sun rays as Ripley and I made a new friend over at the Villa Baldeney sim.  Although it is termed a dress, it is very short, so I opted to wear it as a top instead.  If you were to wear it as a dress, you would have to make strategic use of an alpha layer to preserve modesty.  The frock is rigged mesh and is designed solely for mesh bodies.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you do have to be a member of the group, and the join fee, at 350 Linden dollars, is a bit steep, but there are currently four additional group gifts set out including earrings, a skin for Catwa and Omega, lipstick for Catwa and Omega, and a cute little purse.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Well, the sun is setting on this arid landscape.  Deserts can get quite cold at night, so Ripley and I had better head on back home.  Here’s wishing you a wonderful Monday tomorrow.  Until next time, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Long Day

FabFree: Long Day

Hey there Fabulouses!  It’s been a long, drink your supper kind of day!  Need a pick me up?  How about some news on some fabulous free stuff? MINA has a new group gift for blondies and Nerido has a group gift, I just hadn’t seen before!

A new sassy style

VIPs of the MINA Hair inworld group can head on down to the mainstore and pick up the latest group gift called Maria, which includes the blond pack with new textures!  This group is 200L to join, and there are several older gifts that are still out to pick up when you join.

MINA - New VIP gift: Maria - Blonds (new textures included)

Skirting the issue

Actually, the skirt is the issue!  Previously on FabFree [HERE], I mentioned that there was a new group gift up at Nerido, and that there are several past group gifts on the floor.  I opened up some gifts which I hadn’t seen before, and one of them was the Stina Skirt as shown on my avatar today.  It’s fitted for Maitreya and includes the suspenders.

The group was free during the holidays, but it has gone back up to the normal fee of 199L to join.  I hope you joined when I blogged it was free, but even if you didn’t 199L is a fair price to join with all of the group gifts currently out!

Deep Pockets

FabFree: Deep Pockets

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I dunno where everyone is today lol, so I have another blog post for you! Isn’t this Thea Cardi by C’est la vie cute?  The fuzzy and warm one piece outfit includes the dress and cardi with deep pockets for your hands.  Well, don’t be afraid to fall in love with it, because it’s a group gift!  You can grab this sweet Thea Cardi in red as a free group gift when you activate your C’est la vie inworld group tag!

I know what you are thinking….

You are thinking that you have picked up sweaters and jackets with hands that are supposed to be in the pockets before and when you wear it inworld it looks rigid, your AO interferes and it seems that the item is really only any good for a photo standing still, but it’s totally not the case with this item!!  This Cardigan is animated to hold your hands inside the pockets and worked beautifully with my AO, so I could walk through this winter wonderland and have toasty warm hands at the same time, looking quite natural about it.   You’ll love it! 🙂

The C’est la vie inworld group is 200L to join, but there is a wall of group gifts to obtain once you join and well.. this item alone – is way worth the one time fee!

Sizes Included:

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