My Ruby Slippers

My Ruby Slippers

I stopped for coffee and donuts this morning… as well as the newspaper. Do any of you all still read the paper? It gets that black ink all over your fingers, but its great for setting out on a counter to cool fresh baked goods. Of course this was long before folks used wire rack cooling methods I suppose? Either way, I have more than just baked  goodies for you today, because Glitterati has set out their June Group gift for you and it is cute as pie!

This little dress with its red and gold flowers comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits and is perfect for a casual morning coffee run. I love the embossed details on the sleeves as well. This dress is yours FREE with your group tag. Group membership is a one time fee of 100L, but remember, you will not only be getting this pretty dress… but you’ll also be getting access to many past group gifts (as well as future gifts) as well. The fee quickly pays for itself.

While scanning the marketplace, I happened upon this topaz jewelry set by Beloved Jewelry for only 1 little Linden. You’ll be getting the resizable necklace, a pair of earrings and a ring too (not shown). The set is well made and easily adjustable for a great fit. It matched the color of the flower petals on my dress (and the buckles on my shoes) so nicely that I just couldn’t pass it up!

You’ve already seen a few posts here on the Fab about the Cart Wash Sale. Love showed you a post [here] and I showed you a post [here] and [here]. And I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more goodies from the Sale here on FabFree!

I stopped by the Cart Wash Sale again today, and this time I picked up a set of pretty red flats to compliment my new dress. These are called Fara by Lindy Modern & Retro shoes… but they certainly remind me of a pretty set of ruby slippers. And personally, I think every gal needs a pair of ruby slippers in her wardrobe! These pretty shoes are only 10L and will fit slink flat feet.

Flavor of the Day

Silver Lining

Thanks to Shoenique Designs and a lucky marketplace find… it seems that my “flavor of the day” has a silver lining! I stopped by Shoenique Designs to discover that they have out their June group gift and it is a real stunner. This lacy silver Cardigan comes in standard sizes as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink fits too! The design is just lush and the gift is FREE with your FREE group tag, so it won’t cost you a single linden.

I paired the Cardigan with a cute skirt I found on the marketplace by Mute. This is the Gisele Skirt and I am showing it to you in black… though it comes in a large variety of colors and prints… and at only 10L a pop you might well want to start a collection! The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes and has two cute little front slits at the thighs.

Silver Lining 2

While you’re at Shoenique Designs, be sure to also don your SL Frees & Offers group tag and pick up the FREE Meggy Silver shoes that are the gift out there as well. I paired them with the Shoenique June group gift and my new skirt and was really pleased with the look. These shoes will fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

Just Inhale

Just Inhale

Do you love Neve? They have a new Update Group and it is currently FREE to join. The perks of membership include a new FREE group gift which I’m showing off in today’s post. It’s this tank top called everyday USA. You’ll get it in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Physique. But that’s not all… the shirt includes a hud that allows you to change it from the length shown, to a shorter mid-riff style as well as 4 gorgeous colors – red, white, blue, or gray.

Yesterday I was a little stressed. Sometimes life catches up to you, and you have more on your plate than you can get done in one day. Yesterday was one of those days for me. So today when I came across a new-to-me tattoo shop called Inhale… it was kind of fitting. I thought… yup. I just needed to remember to breathe.🙂

Best yet! Inhale had group gifties. The Inhale group is FREE to join and they currently have almost a dozen FREE group gifts out for both the ladies and the gents as well as some unisex styles. I grabbed this ink called “Don’t be a Square” which I really fell in love with (and I thought it complimented the Neve group gift rather nicely). It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Adam, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza… as well as a signature applier hud for the Inhale mesh body.

Dragon For a Day

Dragon for a Day

I decided to be a dragon for a day…

My look was actually inspired by the newest FREE group gift from [EvelineInTheBox]. The group is FREE to join and then you can pick up this amazing little black dress called Talena. It comes in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya and TMP. I warn you, it’s really really short… but I LOVE the styling and details and the swirly black sequins. They are to die for… or to dragon for😉

I snagged a set of dragon wings for only 69L at Astralia. They have an in-store gacha that is FAB FAB FAB!!! The Khaleesi dragon wings are high detail and include a hud that lets you change the color of the claws on the wings. YUM! For 69L a spin, these are a deal!

I finished my look off with the FREE Summer Fun Gift hair for yesterday/today at Alice Project called Oona. It is scheduled to be changed out around 2 or 3pm SLT today and there will be a new FREE gift hair out at that time. Then this one will be only available to group members after that time. If you want to join the Alice Project group, that is a 375L group fee, but right now it is definitely worth it, as you get an extra gift each day in a natural set of colors in addition to the FREE to all gifts that are being set out. For more information on the Alice Project Gifts see my previous post [HERE].

Have a Fabulous day!❤

Have Mercy

Have Mercy

Have mercy! I’m definitely in love with the group gift from Entice! Don’t miss out on the current group gift from Entice. This gift is FREE to group members and the group is FREE to join. You’ll need to pay the vendor 1L to get the dress, but that will be immediately refunded to you, making the dress absolutely FREE. In return, you’ll be getting the Time for Mercy dress in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya, Belliza, and Slink fits, with 3 colors on a color change hud. It’s a gorgeous gift.

Have Mercy 2

Have you stopped by Ecco yet? If you have 200L to spare for a group and love Jewelry, this group is well worth your linden. I showed you the April gift HERE, and also mentioned that lots of past group gifts were out. I wasn’t kidding. In the picture above, I’m showing you the July 2015 gift… the Aureole Necklace (there are matching bracelets in the box as well). This pretty set includes a color change hud with 7 color choices.

I also wanted to show you the latest FREE gift from Hello Dave. The group is FREE to join. Pretty manicures are always a nice pick me up, and the latest group gift is pretty sweet. This one is called “Just So” and is a set of reverse french manicures in pastel colors. You get 5 colors on the palette.

Kiwi and Dalia at the Beach

Kiwi and Dalia at the Beach

Paper.arrow has out several beautiful new gifts that are well worth visiting their store for. I decided to pick up the lovely beach shorts and show them to you, though there is a wall display with cute new gifts that are all FREE with your group tag. The group tag will set you back a one time fee of 250L, but there are quite a few gifts out for that fee to make it worth your linden.

My cute shorts include all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya and Belleza fits. Plus they are two pieces… the little floral inset is a separate part. So if you feel daring, you don’t have to wear that part! Also on the wall of gifts was a spring floral dress, a pair of lovely plum flip flops, a pair of sporty shorts, and a cute pair of jogging pants!

Kiwi and Dalia at the Beach 2

I also felt like I scored gold with this FREE hair from Besom! If you wear your Besom group tag (the group is FREE to join) and slap the Midnight Mania board (get there early if you can, it’s been locking down pretty fast), you’ll score this beautiful fatpack of hair called Kiwi! I love the flowing mesh locks in this kick-back, care-free style!

Kiwi and Dalia at the Beach 3

Last but not least… Pure Poison has a new group gift gacha out! Just wear your FREE group tag and score a FREE spin on the group gift gacha for a chance at one of 14 commons or the rare! These shoes fit Slink, TMP, Maitreya, or Belleza feet!

Fashion in the Woods, a Perfect Combination.

Hello weekend, I’m so glad you are here. I am also really glad all of you are here! Hi fabbies, are you as pleased that it is the weekend as I am? It’s been a long week, and what better way to take my mind off of it than having a little fashion show in the woods for you? All the best fashion is seen in the woods, I tell ya! *grins* That is the beauty of SL, no one bats an eye at wearing heels on what would be a soft, grassy path in the woods. So lets get right to it shall we.

Let me start off with this. RD Style is closing down. I know, it’s really sad, as happens with many an SL life, RL ends up having to come first. We as shoppers though, are going to benefit from this, as everything in store has been marked down, with outfits starting as low as L$25! Now, if you are familiar with RD Style, as you should be, since we here at FabFree have featured items from them many times, you already know that this is the place to go for complete outfits in one. While there is the odd separate pair of shoes, or dress, most every item is a complete outfit, including shoes. These range from super casual workout outfits, to fun day out shopping outfits, to downright sexy night out outfits. I picked out 3 that I really liked, and all of them are price reduced down to L$25. This sale is on until March 25th, and then everything will be gone, quite possibly for good.

sales3

Outfit # 1 -RD Style – Outfit Emma #3 – Mesh Sweater, and separate mesh skirt, both in the standard sizes. Mesh shoes for SLink high.

sales2

Outfit #2 -RD Style – Outfit Patricia (Brown) – Mesh top and mesh shorts, both pieces in the standard sizes. Mesh shoes for SLink high. Also comes with a bracelet and nail huds for SLink hands and feet.

sales1

Outfit #3 -RD Style – Outfit Alice #II – Mesh corset and mesh pants, both in the standard sizes. Mesh boots for SLink high, also in the standard sizes for the calves.

Have you been eyeing up my hair? Well if you have, you’ll be happy to hear that it is yours for free if you join the Hair SL group. Head on down to Analog Dog, where store owner Queue Marlowe has generously put out the fatpack of Isadora as a gift for this group. There is a poster for you to touch to be able to join the group, right beside the hair, and it is free to join. I’m not sure how long this giftie will be out there, so I would not wait to go grab it.

See, the week is already forgotten, and all is right with the SL world🙂 Hope your weekend is fabulous, and I will see you all again, real soon. Until then, TTFN *waves*

Lucky Me!

Lucky Me!

I’m feeling lucky today! Are you? It must be all these lucky finds out on these great March hunts! The Women’s Stuff Hunt is proving lucky indeed with some great finds… like this applier shirt and this belly button ring!

To get my fun applier corset top, which comes in a universal hud or system layers either one, just take a jaunt over to 1 Hundred. It will only cost you a little hunting for the little red Women’s Stuff Hunt T-shirt and the tiny sum of 1L.

My fun 4-leaf clover belly button ring is courtesy of Vengeful Threads and is a FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift if you take a look around their main-store and find the little red T-shirt.

After all that hunting, I decided to head over to The Blarney Stone, where the drinks were on the house! Cheers!
