I Just Can’t Get You Out Of My Head

Snapshot_001
What can’t I get out of my head?

Well, don’t tell him his love isn’t all I’m thinking about (thank you Kylie Minogue), because I may be tossing a thought or two in the direction of Daddy’s Choice Designs today!  Daddy’s Choice Designs has this lovely and romantic spring sundress set out for you as a free Enmeshed Into Spring Hunt Prize.  I am just in love with this short little frock that gives your legs that “going on for miles” look.

If you’d like a copy of the Daisy Spring dress as shown in my photo for yourself, head over to Daddy’s Choice Designs and hunt down the free Easter Egg hunt icon…  and don’t forget your knickers…  you’ll need a pair.  This dress is seriously… short.

Sizes Available & Body Compatibility:

  • XXS-L – No alpha
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

  • TMP

Join the R3VOLT
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m honestly not sure how this group gift, or gifts I should say, at R3VOLT escaped me for so long. As the name might suggest, R3VOLT specializes in mostly urban style casual clothing. Right now there is a wall full of FREE group gifts available to all R3VOLT  VIP group members. Even better, there are gifts for the guys as well as the gifts for the ladies! The R3VOLT group does have a one time join fee of 200 lindens. Personally, I think the fee is worth it just for the number of gifts currently available. I’ve added a photo of the wall-o-gifts below.

I thought this hi-lo tank top at R3VOLT was really cute, and perfect now that the weather is starting to warm up down here in the south. What makes this great gift fabulous is the texture change hud. I love when clothing has this feature. The Carly top includes a hud with 15 textures (10 prints and 5 solids), standard mesh sizes, and matching alpha layers for classic avatars. Happy Shopping!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Spring is in the Air

Spring Posies

Hello Fabulouses!  It’s almost Friday….thank goodness!  This has been quite an eventful week in RL for me, and I’m really looking forward to the weekend.  While Ripley and I were out exploring, a group notice from Fabulously Free in SL (my *fav* group ever!) popped on my screen, detailing the newest free group gift from Eloise Baker.  Of course, after one peek at the photo, I high-tailed it over to the Time Portal sim as fast as my fingers could click the link!

Lavender Love

My spring floral dress in a lovely purple hue is the free gift offered to FabFree members at Eloise Baker.  This sweet, strappy feminine frock features a slightly flared and ruffled skirt.  With pastel-colored, contrasting flower-dotted panels, and a curve hugging fit, this dress is sure to flatter any figure.  Its timeless, classic design can be accessorized for vintage role play, yet also is perfect for a casual, modern look.  Soft and graceful, this dress is definitely one of my most favorite Fabulous Finds!

What’s Included:

  • Applier for Belleza, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

To Top it All Off

To add an elegant touch, and shield my eyes from the bright sunshine, I donned a wide-brimmed summer sun hat, which I scooped up for a mere 29L at the MESHit store on the Marketplace.  Since it’s completely customizable, it was easy to edit the color and texture of the hat so that it perfectly coordinated with my dress.  It seems as if they were made for each other!  I love the mysterious aura I get with the angle of the brim covering my eyes.   With its reasonable price, and flexible options for color and textures, this versatile topper is sure to find its way into many blog pictures in the future.

Better Days are Coming…

… namely Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!  I hope the rest of your week passes smoothly, and you have plenty of free time to visit boutiques or do whatever you like in SL.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Feel Lucky Today

The Best is Yet to Come 2

Hello Fabulouses!  When Ripley and I were at My Style, and picked up the outfit for my last post {HERE}, I couldn’t resist scooping up another free group gift, this lovely Maya top.  It has a fun tie that wraps around your midsection and ends in a cute little bow.  Three quarter length sleeves and a plunging neckline complete the look.  The gift box includes appliers for Freya, Isis, Physique, Hourglass, Lara and Venus mesh bodies.  To add this sexy number to your inventory, swap over to the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News Group tag (it’s free to join), and tap the gift board.

The Best is Yet to Come 1

Those Little Added Touches

Since my cropped shirt was a free gift, I had some wiggle room left in my budget, and picked up the Miley Collar from Euphorie for just 70 Linden dollars on the Marketplace.  This versatile necklace comes with a HUD that allows you to choose from 10 different hues of leather, and six varieties of metal trim.  I selected black to coordinate with my outfit, but I could have easily added a splash of eye-popping color.

With Saint Patrick’s Day rapidly approaching, I slicked on polish from the Get LUCKY! Mani Pedi Mini set from Bombora.  This 15L Marketplace find helped me get into the holiday spirit.  With the handy HUD, there are 5 options, including several versions with shamrocks, as well as this green and gold tipped finish that I applied today.  Who knows, maybe some of the luck of the Irish will rub off on me.  Actually, this would be a good time for a game of Greedy.  Too bad Ripley doesn’t play because, just like Mary Chapin Carpenter, I Feel Lucky!

Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

High Glam

High Glam
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs, is it really Monday already? I have no idea where the weekend went, which at one point in my life might have meant I had a really fun weekend. These days, not so much! Ha! I did have a few moments to myself to do a little shopping, because really, in a perfect world that’s what weekends would be for.

High Glam

In honor of the recently celebrated Women’s Day, Hilly Haalan put out a special FREE group gift at the shop’s landing point. I do love that we have a day to honor the women of the world. I am also of the opinion that every day is Women’s Day however. All day, e’ery day! So while I didn’t get to this gift in time for the official celebration day, I’m excited to show this cute cropped sweater just the same. The gift top comes in fitted mesh sizes for the major mesh bodies, as well as a fitmesh size for classic avatars that has a matching alpha. This is a FREE group gift. You will need to join the Hilly Haalan group, which is also FREE to join.

Pixie Fluff

If you’re wondering about this fabulously green hair, it’s at the March round of The Arcade. I’m a sucker for cute hair in general, but this style by Clawtooth was a need-to-have! The Clawtooth machine at The Arcade has 2 hairstyles, this one is called Pixie Fluff, love that, and it comes with an additional hud so you  can change the color of the little clip on the side. The Clawtooth gacha at The Arcade is 75 lindens per play.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Clawtooth: Pixie Fluff (8: Magic Pack) – 75L/play @The Arcade

Hair base – Just Magnetized – Basic Hairbase – set 10 for CATWA

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Twisted Trinity

Snapshot_006
Hey there FabFree! Yep… I’m up to no good again!  You’ll have to please excuse my delinquent behavior today.  I’m just trying tirelessly to get a certain hot copper assigned to my beat.  I’ll risk the arrest, in fact – I’m kind of counting it.

It was perfect timing that Sn@tch had the Twisted Trinity Outfit I am wearing today set out as a free Twisted Hunt prize, just when I was needing a bad girl ensemble!  This set is worth the challenge of the hunt as it is packed full of goodies!

What Twisted Trinity Includes:

  • System Black Latex Suit / Omega Appliers
  • Shades
  • Choker
  • Hair in white & black ( I wore white and was able to retexture it to blonde with the edit feature 😉 )
  • Platform Boots

Good luck and happy hunting!

The Eyes Have It

TallulahWell Hello There! Hi Fab Feer’s, thanks for stoppin’ by. As you can see, I have a lot of purple grey goin’ on today and I am loving it! On a quick side note, Second Life can be weirdly lonely sometimes so I got myself a puppy! This cute little girl’s name is Tallulah. I adore her. Though she was by no means free, I’ll add the information on where to “adopt”a puppy of your own in the credits below, should anyone be interested. Now, back to the FREE stuff!

Everything’s Grey 

To start with, this look was entirely inspired by this knotted t-shirt from Cheeky. I love the mottled muted colors, especially the purple and grey variations. I’m not at all sad about the pentagram either. The shirt is Cheeky’s contribution to the Glam or Goth Hunt. The hunt prize includes this mesh top in body specific sizes including Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, and Slink (Physique, Hourglass). Once you are inside the Cheeky shop, you’ll be hunting a single rose. The hint for Cheeky’s prize is “Is that a door?”. The Glam or Goth Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so you’ll pay 1 linden for your prize.

Turn Around Bright Eyes

These hauntingly pretty bright purple eyes are part of the most recent group gift a Cureless. The vibrant colors and cat-eye style pupils really caught my attention. This FREE group gift includes a set of mesh eyes, and a hud that works as a color/texture change eyes for the included set. It also works as an Omega applier for other Omega compatible eyes. There are 12 total color options with this awesome gift. Most of the colors are bright vibrant colors, a few are soft pastels. To get these gorgeous eyes for yourself you’ll need to join the Cureless group. The Cureless updates group costs a mere 50 lindens to join. The gift can be obtained in the past group notices, or by heading over to the Cureless main store.

Kiss Me Deadly

Finally, I personally love this gradient grey lip color. It reminds me of some of the alternative liquid lipstick colors I’ve seen out in the real world. Needless to say, I was super excited to find it was a FREE, wearable demo at Petit Cambre. The “demo” and the full version work for Catwa or 6DOO heads only. To get your wearable demo version of the 6DOO lipstick applier at Petit Chambre, simply purchase the Demo for zero linden. You’ll find the wearable color in the center of the applier hud.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – little bones. Suffragette – Ombre&Roots

Skin – Essences – Poppy

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Eyes – CURELESS [+] Cat Eye Syndrome – FREE Group Gift/Group is 50L to Join

Beauty Marks – Aidhona – Beauty Marks for him & her – Marketplace

LipstickPetit Chambre – (pc) Makeup *Lip Tint#03* [Catwa/6DOO] *DEMO – FREE Wearable Demo

Call It Serendipity

Alexandra 2

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I did some more sleuthing, and have another hunt item to share with you today.  Serendipity has hidden Alexandra, this gorgeous, formal gown as their prize for The Best of You Hunt.  Featuring shimmering black fabric, gleaming decorative trim, and a daring leg slit, this full length frock is sure to draw all eyes your way as you enter the room.  I especially love the criss-cross straps on the back, which allow for a tantalizing glimpse of skin.   It’s so elegant, yet full of sex appeal.  Best of all, you’ll only have to part with one little Linden dollar to add Alexandra to  your inventory.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Mesh for Classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Finding Harmony

Dreaming With Open Eyes

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to stick close to home today and see if we could round up a budget-friendly Fabulous Find from my comfortable (well, kind of) computer chair.  Hmmm.  I wonder if we could find a really cushy computer chair on the Marketplace, too…  I certainly hope so!

Hugging Those Curves

For the promo price of only 10L, I purchased this snowy white, flirty number from M’Encanta’s marketplace store.  I love the way the Feline Dress is adorned with intricate embroidery on the bodice.  The silhouette-skimming cut is sure to flatter any figure.  It features slender spaghetti straps, and vertical piping that emphasizes the length of your torso and draws the eyes upward.

What’s Included:

  • Fitted mesh for classic avatars in S, M, L, XL
  • Fitted Mesh for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Just a Little Cover Up

Although soft spring temperatures aren’t too far away, I felt I needed a light coat to offer a bit of protection from the elements, so Ripley and I returned to scouring the Marketplace.  We found the perfect little windbreaker for only 50L from Paintbox Designs.  The Harmony Denim Jacket in dark blue provided a lovely contrast against the creamy hue of my frock, and kept my arms and shoulders shielded from chilly breezes.  Its cropped length complemented my dress, and provided warmth without overpowering my form-fitting attire.

A Hunting We Will Go

Just as I finished typing up my post, I heard a jingling sound behind me.  I turned to see the pupster trotting toward me with his tracking harness clutched in his mouth.  That can only mean one thing – a post filled with hunt goodies will soon be on the way.  Wish me luck!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Leave a Trail of Glitter

All That Glitters

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  It was a cold and dreary day here in RL, and I was sure glad to enjoy some warmer weather in SL.  Ripley and I ventured to the Bal Harbour sim and met some new canine pals as we looked for the perfect spot to snap a picture.

Sleek and Sophisticated

My dress today, Cupid, is a free gift for Fab Free group members from Glitter.  With its curve-hugging design and plunging neckline, you are sure to have all eyes on you once you don this deep navy dress.  I liked the way the fine, speckled dots on the fabric caught the gleam of the sunlight as I wandered around.  I felt so elegant in this dress, and chose to pair it with an over-sized black sun hat and a pair of simple black heels.  The overall effect was graceful and chic, and I will definitely wear this outfit again soon.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers HUD for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and eBody
  • Cupid Dress insert for mesh skirt in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Cupid Dress shirt and pants layer for classic avatars

Just One of Many

Cupid is just one of forty-eight free gifts that generous designers are presenting to Fab Free group members.  You can check out the entire group gift posting, which shows all the amazing free gifts for our fabulous group members, {HERE}.  If you are anything like me, you will find a number of “must haves” among this long list.

Until my next post, happy shopping, wonderful readers!
