Carefree Summer Stroll

Wandering Around the Grid

Happy Mid-Week, Fabulouses!  It was time for another walk down a country lane for the pupster and I.  Today, we have a fabulous 1L hunt gift to share with you from the Around the Grid hunt, and I hope you like this complete outfit as much as I do!

Summer Freedom

Rip and I have just a small amount of summer freedom left to enjoy, so it’s kind of ironic that the outfit we bring you today is called “Liberata.”  It features a criss-cross strapped crop top and sleek capris.  The black fabric has a gorgeous sheen and realistic folded texture.  One of the things I love about gifts from Brii Underground is that they are generally complete outfits, and Liberata is no exception.  My bracelets, top, pants, and wedges are all included in the prize package, as well as sunglasses, a necklace, and a makeup layer for Catwa Jessica, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  Right out of the box, you get a full outfit that will set you up from head to toe for just one little Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for top and pants for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Special Snowflake

Special Snowflake
Hey There Fab Free! I have been lost in the land of Real Life for a few days, and while it was fun, I’m glad to be back. Sometimes there’s nothing better than cozy familiar places. Fab Free is definitely one of my cozy familiar places. I miss it when I’m gone. In the spirit of “I’m-happy-to-be-back” I’ve got a quick post with new gift from Dead Dollz to share with you.

It’s not a secret that I love pin-up styles. So needless to say, I was uber excited to see this tie front sweater group gift at Dead Dollz. I love the big gold polka-dots and the pale pink sleeve cuffs. The best part by far however is the glittery phrase scrawled across the back. Yep, it says “Special Snowflake.” Love it. The gift comes in a single mesh size specifically for the Maitreya Lara body. The Dead Dollz group has a one time join fee of 250 linden. You will need to wear a Dead Dollz group tag to get this gift.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

This is E. Vary Wrong Dirty Princess

Call Me Cami
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all been having an excellent week thus far. I know it’s been a minute since I had a blog post for you, so this one has several goodies I’m excited to share with you starting with this pretty face!

Recently E. Vary put out a set of FREE mesh head applier gifts for their group members. There is a gift for the Akeruka head, one for Lelutka heads, and this one Pru is wearing the E. Vary  Cami applier for Catwa heads. The E. Vary group is FREE to join at this time. With each of these gifts you’ll get a mesh head applier in each skin tone. The head applier hud has options for brows, and freckles. There is an additional hud that has several lip color options. Also included in each skin tone are the matching system skins with various options, and a set of tattoo layer makeup for classic system avatars. Mesh body appliers are available for purchase at the E. Vary store.

Dirty Princess This is Wrong
To go with this pretty new face, I picked up a few more group gifts to make a pretty new outfit! The mesh dress Pru has on is a current group gift at This is Wrong. The dress comes in several mesh sizes, and the group gift version is in this deep purple color which I love. The peter pan collar and the skinny tie just add to the cute nerdy style of this dress. The This is Wrong group has a small one time join fee of 50 linden.

Dress Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya – Lara

In my opinion these boots from Dirty Princess could have been made to go with the dress. They are a current FREE group gift at Dirty Princess and I think they look amazing with the geometric print on the This is Wrong dress. There are two variations in the gift, one with silver buckles, and one with gold. The Dirty Princess group is FREE to join at this time also. If you are a Maitreya Lara body/foot wearer, you won’t want to miss this gift.

Shoe Size Included: Maitreya Lara

Can’t Take My Eyes Off You

Monday Monday

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I sure put his tracking harness to good use lately.  This time, we hit the trail on the Four Seasons Hunt 2 and discovered this gorgeous flowing skirt (called Petra) from Trashed.  Featuring an asymmetrical hemline, which is short in the front, but falls to knee length in the back, Petra drew many compliments as I wandered throughout SL.  A violet and green floral print splashed across a black background coordinates beautifully with a violet inner lining.  The waistline and side ribbons echo this contrasting hue.  I imagined the skirt trailing behind me on the breeze as Ripley and I strolled through the Mystical Fae Forest.  This has to be one of my most favorite hunt finds of all time.  I just adore this skirt!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Physique

The Four Seasons Hunt 2 runs until July 30 and offers gifts priced at 1L each, which are themed for one of the four seasons.   There are 22 goodies to be discovered from a variety of talented designers.  Ripley and I look forward to bringing you another Fabulous Find soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Stripes Never Go Out of Style

Stripes

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I hit the hunt trail again today….this time we followed the Star Spangled Hunt 2 path.  At Inara’s Fashion, the pupster sniffed out the firework hunt icon which contained this adorable striped tank and denim overall shorts outfit for only 1 little Linden dollar.  The white tank features dark blue stitching and wavy stripes which coordinate perfectly with the hue of the shorts.  I particularly like the way the overalls are adorned with dark gold metallic stars and shield-shaped patches on the pockets.  It’s a fun, casual look that was perfect for a stroll across the lovely landscape at the Svalbard sim.  The Star Spangled Hunt 2, which features stars/stripes and bright patriotic colors, runs until July 18th, so you have plenty of time left to discover some budget-friendly hunt prizes for yourself.

Sizes:

  • Mesh outfit (top and shorts together) in S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer

I hope you are finding time to relax and enjoy your weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Need A Penny, Take A Penny

BelleEpoqueGG
Hello again FabFree! I know I blogged this store yesterday, but I am sending you right back to Belle Epoque today to pick up another awesome group gift that has just been released!

Time Portal

Oh, how I wish I could have been around in the 50’s and 60’s to wear these dishy dresses and walk down the city streets with my shopping bag (that I probably filled for under $10!).  At least in Second Life, we have Belle Epoque to take us back in time fashionably :).  Now you can pick up the Penny Dress as shown on my avatar (including the scarf) in one fitmesh size as a free group gift (10L to join).  I am wearing the Ocean colour that is included, but also included is Aubergine, Shadow and Olive!

Have a great day!

The Meadow Makes it All Better

Across the Meadow

Hello Fabulouses!  It’s almost Friday….phew!  After spilling my drink on my keyboard (not recommended by the way!), and a trip out in the heat to buy a replacement, Ripley and I really needed a walk across a cool, green meadow.  Lucky for us, we found the perfect spot for a relaxing stroll on the Lemon Beach sim.  I felt the stress of the day fade away with each step on the springy grass.  Now, this is the way to end the day!

Just One Little Linden

While browsing the Marketplace, I came across a sweet deal to share with you today.  My form fitting, fitted mesh mini dress can be yours for just one linden dollar at the Avale shop on the Marketplace.  With a plunging neckline, narrow shoulder straps, and a realistic texture, this dress is sure to be a summer favorite of mine.  In addition to the milky white version I chose to wear today, a texture change HUD allows you to select red or black as well.  I really like the way my shoulders are free to soak in some summer sunshine with my new frock.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • Freya

Hopefully, liquids will stay far away from my new keyboard…. I’d rather remain indoors in the air conditioning, and out of rush hour traffic.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Do You Believe in Magic?

Do You Believe in Magic?

Happy Wednesday, Fabulous Readers! Today, Ripley and I bring your our final find from The Cart Wash Sale.  You’ll find my lovely White Magic frock at the Baci Shop.  I know, I know, you’re probably thinking “Time to get your eyes checked, Kat – that dress is NOT white!”  I felt like being the Lady in Red today, so I used the texture change HUD, which is tucked inside the package, to alter the hue of my dress to this deep crimson.  If red is not your color, you have 8 other options available to you, including white.  Featuring side cut outs, fastened with buckle straps, and a generously flared skirt, this summer dress will keep you pleasantly cool on the hottest afternoon.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

I hope the rest of your week goes smoothly for you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Spending A Little, Getting A Lot

Snapshot_017Hello there Fabulouses!  Last month on FabFree, I featured a really cute group gift by Mishchino [HERE], and I thought it would be a good idea to take a trip down there again this month to see what was new in the shop.  Boy was I glad that I did!

Sold For 20L!

I *think* there is a new group gift to pick up there, and I will have to go back and check lol, because my eyes zoomed straight to this mermaid scale printed dress and I was lost in the sale.  I nearly fell over when I saw it was priced at just 20L.  There are several of the Olivia Dresses in different prints for sale on the same rack for just 20L as well.  There was no Maitreya version included for the body I normally wear, however the medium mesh size fit me just fine with the use of the Maitreya Lara Alpha HUD.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus & Isis
  • Belleza Freya Natural, Perky & Pushup

A Couple Shopping Additions…

Since I was out saving a bundle of lindens (I’d have spent so much more on that dress… just sayin), I had a little extra for some Cosmopolitan Sales Room Finds!  I added a close up shot below so you can see the ARTE Shimmer Eyeliner and Supernatural Splash Necklace that are both available at great prices at the new round of Cosmo Sales Room.

Happy Summer

Snapshot_003
Hey there Fabulouses!  Look no further than the Sage display at The Wash Cart Sale if you are in the market for a new swim suit!

For Just 10 Little Lindens…

You can pick up the Sage Poppy Base Set as shown on my avatar that includes the bikini top and bottom as well as the sexy sheer cover-up.  Each piece comes in XS-L mesh sizing so finding a size to fit your avatar with little body alterations shouldn’t be a problem.  The poppy print is just adorable and screamed out to me as my own real life garden poppies have just popped up to say “happy summer”!  Included in the folder is a giant HUD that allows for 20 different colours, allowing you to mix and match all three pieces if you like.
