Simply Irresistible

Simply Irresistible

I’m having another one of those flashbacks to the 80’s.  This time it’s the “Addicted to Love” video by Robert Palmer.  You know, the girls with the short hair, the super red lips and legs that stretch into next week.  I came up with my own version with some great group gifts!

Cranking it Up

I wandered about, as I usually do, and found my way to Cranked.  There I came upon a wall of free group gifts, one of which was this little cropped jacket which I think I really could wear with loads of different things.  I highly enjoy the buckles, and the fact that it also comes with an HUD with several different colour options!  You can grab this jacket (as well as a bunch of other gifts) just by clicking on the vendor and paying 0L – no group join required!

Sizes

  • XXS – L With an Alpha
  • Physique

The Body Electric

My ever-growing collection of bodysuits was rather pleased when I came upon this group gift at MMC.  They have a whole bunch of exceedingly well-priced pieces of lingerie!  This one comes with an applier for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Omega.  I joined the group for 1L, then paid the vendor 1L for the gift – I’d say 2L is a great deal for this pretty outfit!

Ok, I’m going back to my music videos again – I think I’ve got to perfect the blank looks from the Robert Palmer one!

A Hot Fuss

Stay Warm_002

I had stopped by Hot Fuss as part of the Womenstuff Hunt and picked up their hunt prize, but while I was there, I also checked out the group gifts and was pleased to discover some goodies that I didn’t want to pass up.

Gifts Galore!

Hot Fuss has a wall of gifts for their free to join group, as well as gifts for other common Second Life groups. I picked up the free “Jane” skirt which you can get with your Hot Fuss group tag. It comes in all the usual body sizes.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

While I was at Hot Fuss, I also noticed that I could get a free pair of heels, as they had out an SL frees & Offers group gift. I quickly donned my free group tag and picked up the free Amiina heels. These come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet.

Keeping it warm.

I was then back on the trail of the Womenstuff Hunt, but this time I stopped by Winterwood Designs and picked up the Skullz Puffy Jacket. This cute free jacket (once you find the little red t-shirt) comes in several versions. You can wear it with or without the t-shirt, the t-shirt comes in three colors, and the jacket comes in two colors… so you have an opportunity for lots of variety. I’ve included a vendor advertisement below to show off this great gift!

Jacket sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

I just had to…

Stuck_002

I just had to try it…

… just to see if it really happened like in the movies. Yup. It does. Stuck! But that’s okay. A friendly passer-by helped me out with a bit of water from their water bottle and all was well in the world again. (That really does unstick you!)

Sales!

Speaking of stuck, since I was stuck inside with all this cold weather I decided to check out some sales. I heard that Vision had a sale on their gift cards (currently 50% off gift cards until the 30th) and was tempted enough to mosey on down to the store. While I was there, I discovered that if I joined their VIP group for 250L, I would be rewarded with 100L of in-store credit each month on the 1st. This is cumulative, plus you get access to the lucky letter boards.

So I got my in-store credit, and saved that up. In just less than a week I’ll be able to get another 100L on January 1st! So now is the perfect time to join the VIP group. And then I hit the lucky letter boards…

Getting lucky…

I got lucky at Vision pretty quick as my letter came up and I snagged the jacket and top you see in the picture. The jacket and top are separate so you could mix and match if  you want which is nice.

Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Remembering Pool Halls

Pool Shark

It’s been a while.

It’s been a while since I played pool. I miss those days. There isn’t a pool hall in my little town, and I’d have to drive a long distance to find one now. The atmosphere has changed as well. Pool tables are something you find only in bars where I live. When I was in college you could go to pool halls just to play pool, and they were places that were fairly neutral and welcome to all sorts of people.

I found Warehouse 999 and it made me remember a bit of the old days of pool halls. It’s a club that caters to both military (and non military) music lovers, with a pool table in the background. There’s a lot of quaint memorabilia up and if you like the blues, stop by for a listen.

Grabbing the right outfit.

FA Creations has out a great free December group gift… this Yuki outfit. The jacket includes a texture change hud with 6 possible choices and the outfit is made for both standard or mesh bodies. You’ll get the pants as well as the top and jacket as separates.

In the gift you’ll get sizes to fit:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Top it off.

I needed a finishing touch and found just what I was looking for in the Women Only Hunt 2. I picked up this free mesh rigged metal choker in gold at Secrets. This choker is pretty special in that it doesn’t clip. The mesh rigging lets it move with your neck so there is no issue of it cutting out the side of your neck with your avatar’s ao. I really like that. Plus its really stylish. Perfect for playing pool.

Maybe I’m a Joker

Wasabi Pills GiftWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fabulously Free in SL Blog. I have to say the closer it gets to Halloween the more excited I get. No matter how old I am, Halloween will always be my favorite holiday, whether I dress up or not. Speaking of dressing up, I’ve got some fun freebies to share with you. This look is made up of a FREE subscriber gift from Wasabi Pills, and a FREE group gift from Dulce Secrets.

This purple and green hair with the stylized bangs and pointed buns by Wasabi Pills made me think of a female interpretation of The Joker. haha I know if I were going to dress up as The Joker for Halloween, I’d certainly go for hair like this. I like to keep things a little more on the glamorous side. To add this playful hairstyle to your collection, simply head over to Wasabi Pills, and join the subscriber outside the main entrance. If you’re already a Wasabi Pills subscriber member, like me, click the subscriber kiosk and get this FREE gift delivered from the message history.
Dulce Secrets GiftThe moment I saw this frilly embellished outfit from Dulce Secrets, I had to have it! The widely varied style elements make this FREE group gift really versatile. What makes it even more versatile is the fact that it’s 3 separate pieces. The jacket, the corset, and the skirt can all be worn separately as well as together. Each piece comes in standard mesh sizes. I love the darkly whimsical look of this outfit, and the little details in the zippers, and buckles.  You could easily dress it up to be anything in this outfit,  from a super villain to a steampunk pirate and everything in between. The Dulce Secrets group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this FREE gift at the back of the store near the Midnight Mania board.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

Stormy

It was a dark and stormy night…

No wait. That’s just the start of the latest novel I’ve been reading. Scratch that.

It was the eighth of October… another day of the Mens Only Hunt and another great find to put into my inventory. You won’t want to miss out on this outstanding mens leather jacket from Gabriel. It’s FREE other than the cost of your hunting time. Once you find the iconic beer, you’ll get this jacket in standard, Slink, and TMP fits, and the box also includes and alpha for standard avatars. I really like the zipper details and the asymmetrical collar.

I paired this jacket with some men’s jewelry I picked up at Chop Zuey. The men’s group gift there (the Gibraltar Necklace in silver) is top quality and resizable. Ladies you might like it too. The group is 350L to join but the gifts are top notch and frequently given, making the group well worth joining.

Easy To Warm Up To

Flamable

It’s getting colder and with the chill air moving in, I was pleased to score some men’s outerwear FREE that was a hot, hot deal. If you stop by Tori’s Stylez, you too can pick up the Tod Denim Hoodie Jacket in Black.

This is a mesh coat in all the standard sizes, which also includes a good alpha layer as well as a bonus system layer tank top if you want to use it (shown in the picture above as well). You’ll need to don your SL Frees & Offers Group tag to snag the gift, but the group is FREE to join, making this an item for your inventory that won’t cost you a single Linden. That is a deal easy to warm up to.

These September Days

Those September Days

There’s something about September days… they get me like nostalgia for summer but melancholy for winter and yet somehow they are some of the most incredibly beautiful days of the year. Tomorrow marks the first day of fall, but I figure today is not too early to show you some excellent clothes that will have you “fall ready.”

You’ve been seeing lots of clothes from the Indian Summer Cart Wash here on the blog, and with quality like this at the low price of 10L… it’s no wonder. And Rispetto does menswear right in this round of the event. I’m showing you two pieces you won’t want to miss. There are a couple of full outfits for just 10L on the cart, but also plenty of separates for just 10L as well. I opted to go for the separates route.

I donned the Kint Jeans for just 10L. These come in all the standard sizes and include their own alpha layer. I topped it off with the Klein Pea Coat in Smoke Tweed, again for just 10L. This too came with an alpha layer and in all the standard sizes. The coat is as well made as the jeans and is also made to fit over other shirts as I show in the picture. I topped it over a shirt from another outfit already in my inventory as an example and with excellent results.

Looking for top quality menswear at low low low prices? You’ll want to check out the Rispetto Cart before the Indian Summer Cart Wash Event is over.
