Good evenin’ Fab Crew! Have you ever looked at something and thought, “Yeah… that’s okay. Cute enough.”  But then you really look at it and think, “WOW, how did I miss that? This is so so cool!”  Maybe it’s me… Anyway, I have two items for this post, one you’ve already seen but I couldn’t resist showing again and one I almost tossed out because it was ‘just another mini’. Both of these items are from the Dubai Third Anniversary round.

First is my hair. This is No_Reason from No_Match and our adorable Cre showed it off in her post here. I saw it and thought, “Browns… I don’t need brown hair,” But I unpacked it anyway and saw one of the browns was kinda auburn. I popped it on clicked ‘edit’ and then changed the color from basic white to a more orange color. And Bingo! Red hair!  I’m saying all this because with a little easy fiddling this Freebie was just right for me when I had thought it wasn’t at all. It goes to show ya, don’t pass up a free gift until ya mess around with it. You might miss out on something cool. Well, that and trust Cre, she knows what she’s doin’ 😉

Second, is my lovely new mini, the “Medea” dress from Flirt. When I unpacked it I was a little ‘meh’ about it. Then it rezzed fully and I took a closer look. The pink ‘splashes’ are gorgeous branches of cherry blossoms! The pattern reminds me of the old paintings on silk in Japanese art. The vibrant contrast of the delicate pink and white on the ink black background is really stunning. And the workmanship in the dress is simply beautiful. And to think I almost passed it by.

Hello FabFree! No, I’m not off on vacation or going anywhere. (Haha yer stuck with meeee) But, dang, I have the “Travel Wannas”. Don’t y’all? We’vev had to put off two years of trips now and it’s so disappointing. So I guess I’ll just have to pretend on the Grid. When I saw the super cute ‘travel’ pattern on PGR’s gift over at the #Hashtag event I knew I’d be off to adventure somewhere… even if it’s just in my head.

The “After 5” comes in a fatpack of five color/patterns, each one just as cute as the next. Just pop over to the #Hashtag shopping event, do some shopping and grab alllll the gifts that range from 0 to 15L. 

The #Hastag Event runs until July 31.

Hey There FabFree! I am so happy to have made it to the weekend, didn’t this week just fly by? I am ready for some Grid time! One happy delight, just as I popped on this evening was receiving this gorgeous dress from the Midnight Mania boards over at Lunaria. I really got to know this designers work during the Fabulous Enchanted Forest Hunt and I was so glad I did. The clothes from Lunaria are just as enchanting as the decore.

Take this dress – “Fainche”. I am in love with it. The details and build are just as perfect as you can ask for and I love the deep greens and copper. It’s topped off with the included circlet in copper and agate and jade stones. It’s just magical. To get your own little bit of magic, just join the free Lunaria Group and slap that Midnight Mania board. There are currently three boards all loaded with beautiful things for us.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

I got another happy surprise when I popped over to No_Match today. This sleek sexy hair is called “No_Thorn” and it’s a free gift for everyone, no group needed. Now the hair comes with a skinny headband that you can change the color off via HUD. But I slipped my new circlet over it. The gift includes a HUD of twenty basic colors, 2 choices for bangs and twenty colors for the headband.

As with all free gifts and Midnight Mania boards, the designers can change or remove them at anytime. So hurry hurry to add these two awesome items to your closet!

Purple Rain

Purple Rain

Heyya FabFree! Into every life a little rain must fall, right? That was my first thought when I saw this adorable dress, shoes and parasol gift from :AU:.

See, I was strolling through the Darkness Event, which is chock full of free gifts right now picking everything up left and right.  Most of the gifts are what you’d expect… dark and broody. Now don’t get me wrong I love a little darkness as much as the next Fae. But I think my darkness may be tempered with a little silliness. Or at least a little Lolly Goth-ness.

So I had to have this sweet little dress with it’s flourishes and skulls and the pretty purple. The fact that it comes with matching booties and a lacey parasol just makes it a keeper in my book.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Fitmesh – XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Physique

I also picked up a pack of ten poses for free from Posesion at the Darkness. The pose pack “Halloween” includes ten well designed poses ready for action. I am using one of the poses for this photo. Just be aware that the hold script in my new parasol overrides the pose in the right arm.

This is the aptly named “Summer Dress” from M*Motion and you can pick it up for free in the Kiyomizu Summer 2021 Hunt.  This super fun Hunt takes place in a huge Japanese market SIM that so so fun to explore. There are lots of free gifts scattered about and a ton of free to use Lucky Letter boards.

The first is my gorgeous green dress. This is “The Enchanted Forest Dress” from Phoebe. I am just in love with this dress. The green is deep and rich and it comes with a sheer ‘over dress’ which makes it look fluttery and soft. Either piece can be worn separately too.

Sizes Included

Next is the beautiful ‘Fantasy Harp’ from Harambee. The harp comes with three poses for playing and it does play a lovely melody. I need to adjust the harp itself to fit me… I am apparently a bit short… But happily, the harp is easily modified. For a little hunting and 5 little lindens, this is a great prize!

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt runs until July 22nd so get going!
