Ooh She’s A Little Runaway

Snapshot_001

Have you heard the latest scandal? I’m running away!

OK… ok… I’m not really running away, but I do have big news about a newly released design as a freebie at Scandalize and a fatpack of hair in a lucky board Runaway!

Lucky At Runaway!

I have been wearing more and more hairstyles by Runaway lately, and while I was in there shopping I noticed that there are several group lucky boards with (:O) fatpacks of hair in them!  You’ll need to join the group to gain access to the lucky boards, however that also means you’ll also gain access to the group gifts in the shelf at the customer service desk too!  I was lucky enough to win Vanessa as shown on my avatar today.  Vanessa is a sweet volumized ponytail style with a headband and bangs.  The headband is texture change so you can match it up to your outfits.

Scandalize Offers A Free New Release!

Scandalize has recently released their new Tabitha Outfit in a whole line of colours.  As shown on my avatar, this gorgeous dress has a layered look to it and is beautifully textured.  The best news about this new release, is that you can pick up the Sia colour FOR FREE!  I don’t know how long this offer is valid, so rush down there if you like it!  Just don’t blame me if you wind up buying more colours!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis

Fallin’ For TP7 and zOOm

TP7
Oh Hello Fab Free! I am totally fallin’ for the FREE gifts at the current round of The Project Se7en paired with this group gift dress from zOOm! All puns aside, there are some fabulous freebies to be had in celebration of TP7′s anniversary. If you happen to follow me on Flickr you’ve probably seen these photos up for a few days now. I apologize that it took me so long to get this post done, it’s a big one!

zOOm it to Me

This bright floral dress is a FREE group gift from zOOm. The zOOm designs group is just 99 linden to join and there is more than one group gift currently available. Perfect for spring and even a casual Easter gathering, the floral print dress has a texture change hud that lets you choose between 8 variations of this beautifully busy floral print. The gift also includes the following body-specific sizes.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Belleza Isis/Freya/Venus
  • Slink Hourglass/Physique
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

TP7 Close

Gifts at The Project Se7en

Since there are so many FREE gifts at this anniversary round of TP7 (and I’m only showing a few) I’ll do my best to talk about them starting from top to bottom, or in this case head to toe! First, you will need to join The Project Se7en group and wear the tag to get the gifts. As you travel around the event you’ll see the celebratory cakes at most booths. Just click the cake at each booth and your gift will be automatically sent to you. First, I love this hairstyle from Sintiklia. It’s a fitted bento hairstyle that comes in the brown-pink color Pru is wearing, and a black-white version (not shown). Each color also comes in 2 sizes.

Next up, what’s not to like about these adorable glasses. Love even commented on my Flickr photo about how cute they are! These glasses are the FREE TP7 gift from BADa. If needed they can be sized up or down with a touch menu.

The dainty nose ring Pru has in is also a FREE gift at TP7. This one is from Tableau Vivant. The Tableau Vivant gift is a set of nose rings in gold and silver. There is a left side ring and a right side ring in both metal tones.

The slight gradient to Pru’s lip color is due to the FREE TP7 gift from Wednesday. I like that it is partially transparent. This single color applier works with Catwa heads only.

For the next and final gift in this post, you’ll need to take a closer look at Pru’s feet in the top photo. I love these sandals! The “Carved Camellia Clogs” are the FREE TP7 gift from Konpeitou. Just in case you are confused, like I was at first, you’ll need to wear the shoe layer that matches the height/position of your foot. These cute shoes come with a color change hud as well so you can match the straps to your outfit, and change the carved part from plain to colored.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Satin Stunner

Snapshot_007
Hello Fab Folks! Do you have a special night ahead that requires a stunning gown on a budget?  Even if you don’t have an event penciled in your datebook, you never know what might arise and should be prepared just in case you need to dress in a flash!

How Does FREE Sound?

I found this lovely Strapless Gown by London Core at The Free Dove.  Its sleek design may be simple, but the beautiful blue (you know I love blue!!) satin texturing and added silver embellishments really do complete this gown.  In the folder, you’ll find XS-XL mesh sizes along with an alpha layer, should you require it.  You’ll find this gown near the back of The Free Dove in the formal attire section, priced at 0L – as is everything in the shop!

Enjoy your day!

A Grown Up Easter Dress

Spring Lace
Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe we are already almost halfway through April?! This is the time of year I always want to add cute dresses and pretty girlish things to my wardrobe. Maybe it’s a left over impulse from years of Easter dresses as a little girl. BYRNE‘s April group gift does feel a little bit like a pretty Easter dress, a grown-up Easter dress. It is pretty, and sweet with lace and flowers, just like an Easter dress should be. I especially like the optional neck scarf. To get your FREE copy of this lovely lace dress, just join the BYRNE group. The group is FREE to join. You can then check the past notices, or head over to the BYRNE main location.  The gift includes standard mesh sizes and matching alphas. Also, at the shop you can purchase past group gifts if you missed them when they were released. Most of the previous gifts are priced at 50 or 60 lindens.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – CATWA HAIR Aimee

Head –  Lelutka – Aria

Skin – Essences – Imani

In the Forest of My Dreams

Meet Me At Midnight

Hello there, Fabulouses!  At the Mystical Fae Forest, Ripley and I found an enchanted harp surrounded by softly glowing candles.  As we stepped closer, the wind began to pluck the strings, playing a lovely, haunting tune.  The pupster and I stood entranced as even the local reindeer paused, and tilted their heads to listen to the melody.  It was a magical night in a forest of dreams.

A Fabulous Frock for a Legendary Evening

Emma is the latest free group gift from Legendaire.  With a solid-colored bodice and hem, accented with bright swirls of paisley, this maxi dress is slender at the waist to emphasize my figure, but ends with a comfortably loose, slightly ruffled skirt.   Narrow straps left my shoulders free to feel the caress of moonlight on my skin.  The gift box includes a HUD which offers a choice of 3 textures.  I was torn between the dark blue and magenta floral swirls, a bold black and white pattern with pops of pale teal, and this red, white and teal paisley pattern.  Every one of the options was equally appealing.  Although joining the Legendaire group will set you back 99L, there is an entire wall in the shop packed with 12 group gifts, all free for members.  A teleporter on the floor will whisk you off to a plethora of other outfits also set out free for group members.  I considered 99L a fair investment for so many generous gifts.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Emma HUD with 3 texture options
  • Emma flats (not shown)

All Good Things Come to an End

As the clock approached midnight, my canine Prince Charming nudged my hand, breaking the spell, and reminding me that this Cinderella has to get up bright and early for RL work tomorrow.  Bidding the reindeer and the spellbinding harp farewell, Ripley and I journeyed home.  Until my next post, here’s wishing you magical encounters, and happy shopping!

On The Fringe

Snapshot_005
Good morning Fabulouses! The Springtacious Cart Sale continues for one more week and we are still finding so many wonderful 10L finds to share with you here on the FabFree Blog! Today I put together a casual boho outfit to show off a couple things from the Loordes of London Cart I think you might like.

Both for 10L!

The Loordes of London “On The Fringe” Outfit including the shirt/sweater combo and the jeans are available in a few different colours for just 10L a set!  I actually couldn’t believe my own eyes when I saw the display.  I clicked on the top, bought the top and then clicked on the jeans and bought the jeans… but what I really did was buy the whole set twice because you get both pieces for 10L and it’s all one long vendor! lol.  Silly me.  I should pay closer attention…

Sizes included:

  • Top & Jeans – XXS-L mesh + alpha layer
  • Top – Slink Physique
  • Top – Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Shine It up

You can also pick up The Lunar Eclipse Sunglasses at the same display for 10L each in a couple of different colours if you want to shine your look up a touch.

Bringing Them Home

Leading them home
The Whole Herd…

The horses decided to make a break for it through a patch of bad fencing. I’ve been following their trail ever since I went to feed them this morning. I loaded up the horse trailer and finally spotted then grazing in a pasture. As I walked over to them to lead them back, I was surprised that two of her pups popped out of the trailer and decided to practice their herding abilities.

 Giddy up Little Dawgies…

Today’s look is a FREE group gift from R2A Creations. The Blue Tank and Yellow Shorts Outfit includes blue sneakers and also a yellow cap (not shown). I am also wearing a Barbed Wire Armband (to mend the fence apparently) that I found for FREE at Legal Insanity as part of the Men’s Only Hunt 9. My pose is also a FREE gift from the hunt. The Stay Fly pose is part of the pose pack gift from Le Poppycock.

Come on, girls, let’s go home…

Tell Me About It Scream Queen

Pastel Goth
Oh Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone enjoyed at least some of their weekend. Mine was uneventful but in a positive way. Even though it’s the dreaded start of the week, Monday,  I’m glad you’re here so I can share these sassy cute group gifts with you.

Tell Me About It Stud

This top by Shakira was one of those “I have to have that!” items the moment I saw it. You can’t put a quote from one of my all time favorite movies on something as cute as this fitted mesh t shirt and not expect me to grab it up! The quote on this FREE group gift at Shakira is from the scene in Grease where Sandy has transformed into the sexy “bad girl” version of herself, and her love interest, Danny, sees her for the first time. (If it isn’t obvious I think I know the movie by heart. lol) The shirt comes in fitted mesh sizes for Slink, Belleza, TMP, Maitreya, and Tonic bodies. There are several group gifts currently available, and the Shakira group is FREE to join.

Scream Queen

This sassy hairstyle is one of several group gifts still available at Mello. I even like the name, “Scream Queen”! This mid length style with side swept bangs comes with a color change hud that has 13 bright bold colors. You won’t find any natural hair colors with this gift, but that suits me fine. I really like the fullness of this hairstyle, and considering the Mello group is FREE to join, it’s a total steal.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Gorgeous on a Gray Day

Photo 23

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I discovered another Fabulous Find at The Cart Wash sale to share with you.  I scooped up my strappy Beautiful Gray Day dress for only 10L at the Emerald Couture stand.  This knee-length frock offers a figure hugging fit that ends with a ruffled hem.  It features a light gray background topped with a delicate floral pattern.  With a variety of sizes and mesh body options, this budget-friendly dress is sure to fit your avatar.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Body Compatibility:  Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Slink Hourglass
  • Gray Day Shoes (not shown in picture)

Half Off?  Count Me In!

Although this amazing sale doesn’t quite drop the price to the 75L mark, I did want to pass along the news of the 50 percent off sale over at Exile.  All in-world styles, except Gatchas, are marked half off until April 7th.  As soon as I read the note card announcing the special offer, I clicked the teleport button, only to see the dreaded “Region is full” message.  I persisted, and finally after multiple attempts, arrived.  I picked up several new hairdo’s, including the Class Act style featured above.  For only 125L, you can purchase regular color packs, fusion packs for 140L, and the All or Nothing pack for 625L.  It was well worth the effort required to enter the sim!

Those Extra Little Touches

At the Rispetto Designs cart at The Wash, I picked up these glossy, dark gray Amour Signature Shawnda earrings for only 10 little Linden dollars.  They coordinated perfectly with the hue of the roses scattered across my dress.  The triple hoop design provided just the right amount of bling to complement my outfit.

Treat Yourself…

… to a little retail therapy.  This round of The Cart Wash is absolutely packed with bargains galore, and I hope you get a chance to teleport over to the Wash and check out all the booths for yourself.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
