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!

Santa Baby

Santa BabyHi There Fab Free’rs! I can just feel Christmas inching closer, and I’m starting to get excited. I hope you are also! For this post what started with a sexy coat quickly turned into a sexy Santa. lol I call her “Santa Baby”. While the sex does almost ooze from this look, I do think it can be toned down a little with some jeans and a cute top under the coat. Either way, it’s a lot of fun, especially for the holidays. Now I’ll get to telling you all about the  Fab finds that made this Santa Baby look possible!

Santa Baby Look
Eternity Santa Hat

Starting with the hat, this one I found on the Marketplace for just 10 lindens. The Santa hat is by Eternity, and no holiday Santa outfit would be complete without a hat like this. This particular hat has resize scripts so it will easily fit male and female avatars. I tilted mine some to better suit all Pru’s fluffy hair!

Indented Holiday Gift

The best part of this look is the jacket in my opinion. This jacket is the FREE holiday gift at Indented. You’ll find it sitting under the Christmas Tree just inside the entrance of the Indented main location. This FREE group gift includes the jacket in unique sizes for specific body types. It also comes in several colors including the red color shown, green, black, and brown. The Indented group is FREE to join. Once you’ve got your Indented tag, you can purchase the gift under the Christmas Tree for zero linden.

AVICANDY Santa’s Woolly Socks 

These cute holiday themed applier socks are another Marketplace buy. They are from a shop called AVICANDY which is known for fun socks and stockings among other things. This specific pair of socks is 49 lindens on the market place and has appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega compatible bodies. Additionally there are classic system layers for non-mesh avatars.

Perch Boots 

These cute boots by Perch are their contribution to the Women Only Hunt 2. The WOH2 hunt is a FREE hunt, and you’ll be searching for a snowflake. These cute boots come with a color change HUD that allows you to choose between 4 neutral colors. They can also be resized via a touch menu. These boots from Perch are not built for specific feet, and include an alpha layer so that classic avatars can wear them as well as mesh avatars. I did need to re-position them some to sit right with my Maitreya Lara body.

I hope you like this saucy Santa look! Here are the details.

LOTUS for the Holiday

LOTUS Gift 1Hello again Fab Free’rs! I am not sure why but I am always surprised at how quickly Christmas seems to come about right after Thanksgiving. Suddenly it seems like there’s no time at all, and everyone is busy. I hope each of you is able to take the time to enjoy the people you love, be they friends, family or both. One of my biggest challenges about all the holiday gatherings is finding the right thing to wear! This year LOTUS has you covered for at least one of your holiday gatherings. They have a few pretty group gifts I’m excited to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it!

LOTUS Group Gift Sweater & Skirt 

The lovely ensemble pictured above is the most recent group gift at LOTUS. This sweater and skirt combo comes in a single mesh size, and is all one piece. I love the textures in this outfit, the sweater looks genuinely soft and fuzzy on, and has just a touch of elegance with the little pearls. To get the gift you’ll need to join the LOTUS group, which is 99 lindens to join.LOTUS Gift 2

LOTUS Group Gift Eyes 

In addition to the sweater/skirt combo, there is a group gift set of mesh eyes out at LOTUS. While wearing the LOTUS group tag, click the vendor and you’ll get the gift. This gift includes 6 pairs of mesh eyes in green, aqua, blue, brown, and lilac. I went with the green eyes for this photo, however the other eye colors in this gift are equally pretty.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Wicked Witch of the South

The Wicked Witch of The South Hello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by. It’s my favorite month of the year, and I decided to get a little witch-y with my style because why not?! When else can you get away with an over-sized witch hat as an accessory? In all honesty, the moment I put on this October subscriber group gift from BYRNE, I knew I wanted to wear a hat with it. I didn’t plan on a witch hat at first, but I’m quite pleased with the way things came together. Speaking of October group gifts, these adorable heels are the current group gift at Empire.  And of course I found an inexpensive lipstick by Stellar, that I couldn’t live without. I hope you like this spin on a classic witch look as much as I do!
Wicked Witch of The South Starting with the gift from BYRNE, my photos really do not do this mid-length dress justice. There are little details like the high neck, the full sleeves, and the buttons up the front that give the dress an elegant vintage feel. This group gift from BYRNE comes in the rust color shown and a blue color, both in several standard mesh sizes. Also included with this Fabulous FREE gift are a matching pair of goggles for each dress which are not shown in the photos. To add this lovely dress to your wardrobe, you’ll need to join the BYRNE Style group in world, and check the past notices. The group is FREE to join, and you’ll find a men’s gift as well!

I don’t think I could have picked a more darling pair of strapped heels to go with this dress. These lovely shoes are the October group gift at Empire. This gift is generous as always in that it includes shoes to fit Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Belleza mesh feet. Also included is a color change hud that allows you to change each individual part of the shoes, from straps and buckles to sole. These shoes are FREE to all group members, simply join the Empire VIP group and wear your tag. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 linden.

Finally, I cannot resist the final touch of a glittery nude lipstick from Stellar. This dollarbie applier gives a subtle shine and tint that is quite pretty and perfect for everyday wear. A fun Marketplace find by Stellar, the lip-color works with Lelutka mesh heads, Omega compatible heads, and includes a classic system layer for non-mesh avatars. Once again, I love the slight change makeup layers allow.

I genuinely hope you enjoy this look as much as I do! Here are the details.

You Were Always on My Mind

Always Thinking Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m excited to share with you an almost complete look that I think is not only fantastically cute, but Fabulously inexpensive. I’m really pleased with how this look came together. I love the colors, and I think it’s a cute casual look for the cooler weather. Not to mention there’s something essential about a hoodie for the fall.

Cynful Clothing Co. recently switched out the items in their lucky boards. If you’ve never been to Cynful, the store has several group only lucky boards all with quality women’s clothing. The mustard yellow hoodie Pru has on is one of the several FREE lucky board prizes to be had at Cynful. It’s fully mesh and comes with an optional zipper attachment for added detail, as well as a color change hud to adjust the color of the inner shirt, the hood strings, and the zipper attachment. The hoodie is technically a dress, and it is long enough to be worn without pants.
Thinking AlwaysWhen I first put this hoodie dress on, I knew I wanted to wear leggings and boots with it. It gives the look of a comfortable casual outfit while still being stylish. These applier leggings are a Marketplace dollarbie by Offline. I couldn’t ask for the colors in these patterned leggings to match more perfectly with the hoodie, and I really like the sort of bohemian feel the leggings give the complete look. In the package you’ll find a classic system layer, an Omega applier, a Belleza applier, and an “All in One” applier with options for Lena, Phat Azz, Wowmeh, Banned, Ghetto Booty, and Banned.

For a final touch I added this pretty purple nail polish by Hello Dave. Sometimes I like my manicure to very obviously match my outfit, and other times I like it to stand out a little. This pretty shade of deep purple compliments the mustard yellow in the outfit very well. You’ll find this FREE manicure/pedicure in one of the 3 FREE Fabulously Free in SL group gifts at Hello Dave. As previously shown here, this lovely color is part of the palate of sold polish colors. The nail applier hud works with omega compatible  and Slink hands. To get these specific freebies at Hello Dave, you’ll want to wear you Fabulously Free in SL group tag.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Monochromatic

Monochrome Hi there Fab Free’rs! As always I hope everyone is well in their Second Lives, First Lives, and all Lives. I’m doing pretty good myself, I’m happy to say. For this post I have several FREE or inexpensive gifts to share with you, and I was clearly inspired by how they all came together. I really have no idea what terminology to use to describe this look. The terms modern, industrial, gothic, all come to mind. Whatever you choose to call it, I hope you like it.

First, let’s talk about all this bold metallic looking jewelry by Alter. I have to say this set is really unique, in a good way, definitely what you would call a statement set. This full set including earrings, bracelets, and necklace come together as a FREE gift available at the July round of SWANK. Each piece is scripted to be sized up or down via touch menu. While the set clearly goes together, each piece is different enough to stand alone.
Alter Mana Also among the several gifts at SWANK is this dollarbie nail applier set from IP Nails. Continuing with the metallic theme, this really pretty manicure comes in the single style shown, a soft satin grey with a gold tip. Included in this gift are appliers for Maitreya nails, Omega compatible nails, and Slink nails. Also  I want to point out that the single applier did color both my fingernails and my toenails, at least the Maitreya applier did. I would definitely wear this mani/pedi with everything, casual attire, formal attire, it will look good with any outfit.
Free Mana Saving what is in my opinion the best for last, Essences recently sent out this stunning pale skin as a FREE subscriber gift. You read that right, no group needed, just join the subscriber. I’ve always been a sucker for pretty red lips, and the makeup on this gift version of the Essences Mana skin slays. Included in this beautiful FREEbie is a full set of system skins, you get this gorgeous face in a full system layer skin with brow and cleavage options. That means classic avatars can definitely take advantage of this gift. Also included in the gift is a Lelutka head applier. Mesh body appliers can be purchased separately at the Essences main store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Eclectic Essences at Kustom9

Gacha Kustom9 Hello Fab Free’rs I hope you’re doing well. It’s been a minute since I did some gacha-ing and there are several cute gachas waiting to be played at the current round of Kustom9. You know I can’t resist skin gachas, and especially not when the Essences gacha is set at 75 lindens per play. Also, ieQED has some sweet summer bangles at just 29 lindens per play.  These gachas are really just two of many but they caught my attention first! haha

This beautiful skin is one of the 12 Arwen gacha prizes from Essences at Kustom9. These gachas include Lelutka head applier only. Matching body appliers can be found for sale at the Essences main store. Of the 12 total versions in various skin tones, 10 commons and 2 rares. Pru is wearing the Arwen #9 which is one of the common prizes in the dark01 tone. I personally rarely wear the darker tones, but when I tried this one on, it was just too pretty! It really is a beautiful skin. It also looks lighter or darker depending on your windlight settings, which really just makes me like it even more. At just 75 lindens per play, if you’re a Lelutka head wearer, you need this skin or one of the other equally beautiful versions in your inventory!

I was so excited when I saw that ieQED had a gacha at this round of Kustom9. These bangles are so cute, and are the type of jewelry you could wear with anything. The ieQED gacha is just 29 lindens per play. The rare gets you a color change hud, I wasn’t so lucky, but I’m thrilled with the three bangles I did get. How cute is that pineapple?! Truly I feel like these little “eclectic” bracelets capture the fun of summer perfectly. There are 10 total bangles, and the rare hud will give you the option of picking between 5 metal tones and 6 gem colors.

So you can get a good look a the other Essences and ieQED gacha prizes at Kustom9, I’ve included a copy of the gacha keys below. Good Luck!

Seahorses in Fall

Seahorse

Happy Saturday Fab Free! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Even though we recently had a Free Hair Day on the blog, in my Second Life, there is no such thing as too much hair! I am certain I’m not alone in this. With that in mind, Besom recently put out a new Group Gift hairstyle called Bellinia.

The fanciful name fits this FREE hairstyle from Besom very well. It’s a lush long style with feathery waves. The Besom group is FREE to join, and well worth the effort. You’ll find previous group gifts still available, as well as a group only Midnight Mania Board at the Besom main location. Not to mention the gift is a fatpack, which means it includes every color option available! I have to admit, I felt very mermaid-like with this gorgeous hair, so the FREE gift Luminesse has out at the current round of SWANK is kind of perfect to show with it.

There are always great finds at SWANK, and the Luminesse gift is fabulous to say the least. This specific gift does not require you to wear any group tags, just stop by the SWANK event and pick it up for FREE. The gift includes this beach-y necklace shown, and a matching pair of earrings. Even though most of us don’t think of seahorses as typical for fall accessories, I think the bold colors are great for any season. Besides, this is Second Life, just about anything goes!

So I’ve got a new hairstyle, and some bling, time to get the nails done! Nail Me! has the perfect solution, as they often do. The November Group Gift at Nail Me! is a colorful set of paisley printed nails that are too pretty to miss out on. This group gift is completely FREE, and the Nail Me! group is FREE to join. So that you can see all of the beautiful vibrant colors in this nail palette, I’ve included the vendor photo below.

Sweater Weather!

Sweater WeatherFollowing the brightly colored leaves of fall comes the cold crisp breeze of winter; and my favorite season for fashion, which I like to call Sweater Weather! I know we are still in the midst of fall, and I’m not discounting the season, but I can feel the coming of winter and I can’t help but be excited. That being said, BYRNE recently sent out her November group gift to the BYRNE Style group, and it is this warm and cozy cowl-neck sweater dress. If you are not already a member of the group, the group is FREE to join. Check the past notices and you’ll find this sweater dress, and another group gift just for the guys! The sweater dress comes in two colors, red (shown), and blue, each with standard mesh sizes. I took a close-up of the sweater so you could better see the playful sugar skull pattern that makes this sweater so unique and beautiful. Remember, notices only stay available for 14 days, so don’t hesitate to join the group and score this beautiful gift.

Here a Hair, There a Hair, Everywhere a Hair Hair

Free Hair Besom 1

It’s the big Free Hair Day, not to be confused with big hair! I’m so excited to participate in this collection of posts by our Fabulous Fab Free blogging team. I have to say we really do have a great team, and I’m proud to continue to be part of it. That said, I have so much hair to show you! So, let’s get started. The two styles pictured above are FREE group gift hairstyles from Besom. Each style includes a fat-pack of color change huds. No matter what color,or colors you’re into, or if you’re like me and you like to change your hair color often, these great styles are for you! The Besom group is FREE to join, so there’s no reason to miss out on either style.

Free Hair Cheveux

Next, these playful styles are from Cheveux. The style on the left was previously gifted at the most recent Hair Fair, so if you missed out on it then, it’s available as a group gift. These three styles are just a few of the many FREE group gift hairstyles available at Cheveux. The Cheveux group has a one time join fee of 300 linden, however with the generous number of gifts, the fee is worth the effort. Each style comes in the color shown, however the curly pig-tail style to the right includes a color change hud for the playful bows. The same hud will also allow you to make the bows invisible if you like the style, but the bows aren’t your thing. I have to admit, trying these on made me really consider wearing pink hair more often!

Free Hair Tameless

Who doesn’t like a sassy bob!? These two cute styles are FREE group gifts at Tameless. The Tameless group is also FREE to join. Each of the styles includes the “Naturals” pack of color options. Whether you’re a blonde, a brunette, a red-head, or have black hair, there’s certain to be a tone to fit your personal style. The style on the left with the bobby-pin in front also includes a texture change hud for the pin. I almost see these two styles as being a daytime, and an evening version of the same style.

Free Hair D!va

I’ve always liked the whispy whimsical nature of the styles at D!va. These beautiful hairstyles are FREE group gifts currently available at D!va. Each style includes color change huds, and a menu for re-sizing. The D!va group is FREE to join. The style to the far left, Iris, can be worn with or without the forehead strand, long lengths, and braids, for a pulled-back style. The middle two styles called Bambi are part of the same generous gift. I love the playfulness of this style, Bambi is my personal favorite of the D!va gifts. Additionally, the style to the far right also include full outfits as part of their gift.

Free Hair Olive 1

These lovely hairstyles are FREE gifts at Olive, no group needed. Originally gifted at Christmas of last year, if you missed them, take a moment to grab them now. Look for the green gift boxes located on shelves just inside the main location. Each style includes a color change hud with four variations of red, black, brunette, and blonde. In addition to these lovely FREE gifts, there are several group gifts available. The Olive group has a one-time join fee of 250 lindens, however the generous gifts are well worth it. With so many styles to choose from, there is definitely something for everyone.

Here are the details, Happy Hair!
