It’s My Party, and I’ll Eat FroYo If I want To!

Sometimes a girl’s just got to have fun — even if it means throwing herself her very own FroYo Party! And since it’s my party, I’ll eat FroYo if I want to!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [1]

But first! We have to set up! Balloons and a table are a necessity! I found these great gift balloons for only 1L at the Sherbert main-store. They are currently a Halloween gift that have been set out for anyone, no group required! The colors are fun, and they are only 2 prims for the trio plus the spider textured brick they are tied to! That’s not a trick, that’s a treat!

I also made away with fabulous goodies at The Arcade Gacha. You’ll want to take a swing by there as well. This adorable Playful Pastimes Table by R(S)W & YKFK is only 1 prim and is currently a FREE gift at the event!

And because today is all about having fun… my pose! This fun pose by Sparrowtree Studio is called “Turkey Day Pose” and includes the spoon on your nose! (As well as other props such as turkey legs and such… all optional of course!). It may seem a little early for Thanksgiving, but I was thankful for this 1L marketplace find!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [2]

And what is a party without food? Again, The Arcade Gacha did not let me down. Not only did I pick up this fun rez-day cake for only 1 prim and 50L per spin at the [ keke ] Gacha but I also found this great FREE gift by Fancy Decor near their Gacha! Free FroYo — spoon included! It’s meant to be a hold-able food prop (it even has the animation for eating!), but I discovered that I could rez them out and they were only 1 prim each! Yay for that!

Astrid’s hair is also a lucky FREE find at the The Arcade Gacha! If you stop by .Blue Olive.‘s hair Gacha, this hair style there is a FREE gift. There are also two rare styles in the machine as well. The commons in the machine are a variety of bangs (this FREE style has an option to make the “free” bangs disappear so you can add the Gacha bangs on) or headbands. I’m only showing you the FREE style, and even by itself it’s adorable! The FREE style includes a color change hud with four colors for the hair as well as several colors for the bands on the pony tails too.

The picture above is also your chance to scope out Astrid’s septum nose piercing… a golden find if I don’t say so myself! These septum piercings by (Yummy) were just 50L per spin at The Arcade Gacha. I didn’t get the rare, but I landed the Ethereal style in gold, and was just as happy, as all of these nose rings are all gorgeously detailed!

It's My Party and I'll Eat FroYo If I want To [3]

Of course all of that partying means Astrid is all tuckered out. Good thing she has comfy clothes to fall asleep in.

Be sure to stop by Prism Designs and pick up this fabulous dress that is the September FREE group gift. The group is FREE to join. The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes and has some great details on it, including the cute cut-outs over the upper arms as well as a side-slits at the thighs.

Astrid’s shoes and socks are also a FREE gift, but you are going to have to hunt for them! You’ll need to make a stop by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes and look for the little red dress to pick up the FREE Women’s stuff Hunt gift that is being offered at this creator’s store to sport these pumps at you own party. The pumps themselves are black only, but they come with a color change hud that will tint the socks to any color you choose (it even includes an RGB adjuster to let you fine-tune if you want)!

Modern & Retro – Still Hip and Hot!

An extra long weekend hit here in the U.S with labor day, and for me it was time for some modern and retro fun! I was was totally feeling the Neon vibe too!

This meant I was hitting up a few stores for some great gifts, a hunt, and the Cart Wash Sale once again to top off my favorite looks with fabulous shoes from the Lindy Modern & Retro Cart!

Modern and Retro -- Still Hip and Hot 1

I was really excited to see how generous (BYRNE) was this month with two great September Gifts! One is FREE in the group notices if you join the group and the group is FREE as well. Just check the past notices for the really terrific mesh Tartan Dress Shirt in blue you see Astrid sporting in the picture above. In came in all the standard sizes and the pack included both this bopping blue as well as a radical red. So you just can’t lose out on the deal!

Also pictured above is an amazing FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt Gift that you will find if you hop over to Chop Zuey chop chop! and look for the little red T-shirt. Just find and buy the little red shirt for 0L and you’ll be the proud owner of this lovely “A Special Grace” Jewelry Set in Black, which includes a matching necklace, bracelet, and earrings!

My shoes in the picture above are just one of the many gorgeous Slink feet compatible offerings from the Lindy Modern & Retro Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. This sleek black pair is called Lindy Orla in Black, and like all the offerings on the cart was only 10L!

Modern and Retro -- Still Hip and Hot 3

I wasn’t done with (BYRNE) yet though, as they also had out a new FREE subscriber gift too! When I first checked, the subscriber was down, but the creator has fixed it, so if you recently checked and found yourself unable to get the gift from the history, go back and nab this fun neon style by clicking the subscriber and checking the history. Astrid is sporting this completely FREE and totally fun outfit in the picture above!

I also happened to drop by We ❤ RP after it opened up and ran into a New-to-Me creator called A:S:S. They were giving away a lovely set of bangle bracelets  called A:S:S deLuxe Renum at their booth that I just couldn’t pass up! You can see me sporting them in both the picture above and below. The package included 3 different styles — a small bangle, a double bangle and a large… for mix and match options. It was a FREE gift, no group required! Just stop by the booth and pick it up!

I paired my hip-hop neon (BYRNE) outfit above with another set of styling Lindy Modern & Retro Slink compatible pumps from the Cart Wash Sale — this time a pair called Lindy Rowyn Nude — and was just thrilled with the result for my 10L price tag. How much more awesome can you possibly get!

Modern and Retro -- Still Hip and Hot 2

I’ve got two more great gifts to mention — you won’t want to miss out! Astrid’s loose fitting mesh dress above (available in all the standard mesh sizes of course) is another terrific find you’ll want to take advantage of before it disappears. Be sure to head over to Tukinowaguma to pick up Group Gift No1 for FREE with your group tag (the group is FREE to join). And better yet, this terrific little number comes with a color change hud with 5 color choices to add to the versatility!

The fabulous duo color hair that Astrid is sporting in these pictures is also the new gift from little bones. called Chorus. Be sure to pick it up as well! It too comes with a terrific color change hud in sexy colors perfect for a modern or retro styling look and is too fun to miss out on. The gift is FREE with your little bones. group tag (the group is 100L to join but there are MANY past gifts to pick up if you have never joined the group, well worth the one time join fee!).

In the outfit above, I’m showcasing another amazing Lindy Modern & Retro Slink compatible shoe — this time a great set of flats that I just fell in love with. These are called Lindy Valda in black, and like all the others are also just 10L!

If you stop by the Cart Wash Sale, the Lindy Modern & Retro Cart is offering a terrific line up of Slink compatible shoes for ladies in quite a few styles, all for 10L. Don’t miss your chance to fill up your shoe closet for this great low price!

Why, yes! I would walk a mile in these shoes!

Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes has a motto: Shoes… need I say more? And nope, I don’t need to say more! Shoes from Lindy’s have never disappointed me and this Cart is full of gorgeous examples. I had that same trouble I’m having with all these carts: what do I choose to show!

PicMonkey Collage

SO I picked my favorites. First is ‘Eila’ with the back lacing and solid silver rivets. Next is Hanna with lots of buckles and belts. And last but not least is Meshell in a racy leopard print. Like all of Lindy’s shoes these are gorgeous builds. These particular shoes, except for the Naomi style which are for Slink High Feet,  are for system feet so if you haven’t gone over to mesh you can still have stylin’ footwear.

Remember, the Wash Cart sale runs until March 16th so don’t delay! Shop today!

Autumn Travels

Happy Monday, Fab Folks!

kastle2_001

As a sweet goodbye to Fall, I picked up this smart casual Capi set from Kastle Rock Couture. The Autumn Capri Set in Pumpkin is the new Group Gift just out. The group is free to join and there are a ton of older group gifts up for grabs. I love the warm colors and the little details like the gold embroidery on the cuffs. It all goes perfectly with Lindy Modern and Retro shoes’ ‘Bally Autumn Brown’ flats for system feet.  These were a past Hunt prize but Lindy almost always has several Hunts running.

kastle3_001

Lastly, I’m wearing Pure Poison’s ‘Folium’ necklace. Love Trill showed it to us way back in September of 2013 (and on a Monday too!)  If you missed it then you can still find it in the past group gifts area for free.I really like it when the designers keep past gifts out!

A Trip To Couture Boulevard

Snapshot_002I got a hot tip from FabFree Reader ZZ yesterday that there is a HUGE lot of absolutely free gifts from some of our favourite designers at Couture Boulevard!  I didn’t count them, but I would estimate that there are about 30 gifts available – and no need to join a group.  There you will find all kinds of gifts such as hair, clothing, accessories, footwear and so much more!  There was even a couple of things for men.

In the photo above I am wearing the Agnes Finney Spring Dress with the Lindy Appleigh Nude Pumps, which were both gifts from this event.  Below you will see a quick snapshot of the available gifts 😉

Snapshot_003Thanks ZZ, for that fabulous news!

ps.  Kyle – did you notice the cat? 😛

A Bouquet of Colour

Snapshot_005

Ahhh the sun feels good on my skin!  It has been a long winter, but now the sun is shining and I can once again enjoy the great outdoors!  With the warm weather, comes those bright summer colours like the pastel brights on 1 Hundred‘s Color Explosion Hunt (free) prize.   I am wearing the mesh Bouquet Mini Dress as a top with a pair of my fave shorts, but it looks great on it’s own too 😉  Just look for a hidden icon that looks like a splash of bright paint – and this prize is all yours too!

These summery Sandye White Sandals are made by Lindy, and are currently being featured at the Designer’s Showcase for just 99L!
