Come Have a Drink With Me


You Need a Drink

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I got dressed up to go out, and a few of the free group gifts at Casse Lustre gave me the perfect outfit for a fun night out. The Casse Lustre group is free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available. I picked this halter style dress, and off-the-shoulder faux fur coat to share with you. You’ll find the group gifts at Casse Lustre waiting near the entrance to the store.

The Dress – This swanky little halter style dress by Casse Lustre comes in the black version shown as well as an equally pretty white version. Both color versions come in a single unspecified mesh size. To get your copy, simply wear your Casse Lustre group tag and click the gift vendor.

The Coat – When I was in college I had a friend who was a fashion design major and she always referred to this sort of shaggy fake fur as “muppet” and I’ve never been able to think of it as anything else. It makes me laugh, and I love it. This off-the-shoulder fur coat at Casse Lustre is another free group gift. It also comes in a single mesh size, and includes a color change hud that lets you pick from eight preset colors (four dark, and four pastel).

A Gem of a Find

Opal

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a super weekend.  I’ve been feeling under the weather in RL for the past few days, but I’m finally getting better.  What is it about spring colds?  With the warmer weather, I thought I was in the clear as far as viruses go, but Mother Nature proved me wrong.  Ripley has been raring to go for his regular walks, so we decided to venture further down the trail of the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  We have two more prizes to share with you tonight.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Hues of the Opal…

Both of my items today can be found in the Little Black Dress shop.  The generous designer has set out not one, but two free hunt gifts for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  First, the gorgeous Opal Dress features a sleeveless design, v-shaped neckline, and a figure flattering cut.  A pretty midsection accentuates your waist, and then flows down into a loosely ruffled skirt, which ends at mid thigh.  I love the iridescent floral pattern scattered across the raven colored background.  On higher graphics settings, you can see a myriad of colors in the design; on lower settings, the flowers are a pale silvery gray, which is also quite lovely.  You can add this frock to your spring wardrobe for free once you locate the hunt object in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

…And the Petals of a Blossom

My elegant Enamel Flower Necklace is also concealed in the store.  I love the large, eye catching blossom suspended on a delicate silver chain.  The center stone can be easily customized with a few clicks of the mouse via a built in menu.  I opted for onyx, but there are 11 other selections to choose from, which makes this a versatile piece of jewelry.  I think it pairs beautifully with the Opal Dress, but I can also see myself wearing it with other outfits, too.  For just the cost of your time searching in the shop, you can scoop up a free new bauble for your collection.

I hope you get a chance to spend some time yourself wandering down the Grow Your Awareness Hunt path.  There are many eye catching delights just awaiting discovery.  Until next time, happy hunting!

All Dressed in Black Black Black

All Dressed in Black
We made it through Christmas Fab Free! What a fun but hectic holiday! Christmas may be over, but there’s still plenty of reasons to celebrate and have a good time. New Years Eve is coming up in just a few days. I personally always look for gold and silver sparkly things to wear for a New Years Eve party. This year I like the idea of this calf-length black dress from CHAIN and these stiletto booties from Hilly Haalan, both in black. Not only are they ultra sexy, they are FREE group gifts just in time for a party.

CHAIN

This dress. I don’t think I really need to gush about how pretty it is. Right now it is one of several FREE group gifts at CHAIN. The CHAIN in world group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.  The Sally Dress comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from black, silver, or violet. There are also 2 versions of the dress, one with the body chains as shown in the photo above, and one without.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Hilly Haalan

I wasn’t sure how these detailed ankle boots would look with the Sally dress when I picked them up as a group gift at Hilly Haalan. Honestly, I love the two together. I think you could just as easily wear these awesome shoes with a pair of fitted jeans and a swanky top. These shoes are one of three group gifts currently available at Hilly Haalan. The Hilly Haalan group is FREE to join at this time, and all the group gifts are conveniently located at the landing point.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, N-Core, TMP

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Snapshot_001

Sleep to Dream

Sleep to Dream 1Hello Fab Free’rs, things are busy this time of year, and I’m sad that Real Life has kept me away. Now that I’m back, I’m definitely excited to be back in the mix! Lately I’ve been a little nostalgic for the goth/grunge rock fashion of the early to mid 1990s. Don’t ask me why, perhaps it’s because those were my teenage years, when fashion first became a passion of mine and I first began expressing myself through my own personal style. Recently, Kaithleen’s hit an amazing 2000 group members! To celebrate the success, there’s a new FREE group gift to be had in the form of a slinky little black dress. The second I put it on, I fell back into that witch-y goth style I used to covet. This versatile piece from Kaithleen’s could be worn as a dress, a top, or even as lingerie. The gift includes the dress in solid black, and a white lace trimmed version. The white lace trimmed version includes a sheer option as well. Each version includes standard mesh sizes, and there are matching alphas. The Kaithleen’s group is FREE to join, don’t miss out! Here are the details, Enjoy! Because Because

Hair – little bones. Beat – Landslide

Skin – Lumae :: Adore – Darkling

Head – Lelutka – Aria

Tattoos – .Things.- Iuturna Tattoo

Friday, I’m in love…

Happy Friday, FabFree-ers! And you know what Friday means… the first day of a weekend full of Hunts!  First up is the ‘Pretty Handsome Hunt’ from Toxic Hunts.  This is a 1L Hunt and it runs until April 20th!

phh_001

This is the elegant “Little Black Dress” from Through the Looking Glass. The men’s gift from [TLG] is a gorgeous matching formal suit.  The ladies’ gift also comes with a special makeup.

At the other end of the spectrum is this flirty little empire-waisted sun dress from Trashed : the “Flutter Dress Pixie”.  Could there be anything that says ‘Spring is here’ than this? I’m showing it all hippy bafe footed but I can see dressing it up with some fancy heels and jewelry too.

There are 33 stops in the “Pretty Handsome Hunt” and it runs all the way till April 20th so there’s plenty of time to get your hunt on!
