Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Whimsical Sunday Stroll

Snapshot_028

Hey faboo gang!

It’s a rainy day here in my real life world, a day to crank up those fairy lights and delve into some fun second life fashion!

I love to find designers who are *not* on the big designer list and introduce them to everyone.  There are a helluva lot of good designers out there that you never hear about and who don’t even get a chance because they are overshadowed by those designers you *do* hear about every day!  I like to share these “mom and pop” designers, the small businesses of the grid to show them some support.

This time around I have found a cute place called It’s Me.  They have some freebies and dollarbies, but my eye caught this outfit which was still only 29L, I love the funky pattern on the overalls. It also comes with cute sneakers to match (not shown). This cute set which has both the top and the pants fits:

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

My pose is another cute 75L Nextup find from Le Poppycock.  I love that you wear the props and they pose you, so you have nothing to rez.  This pose comes with both the tree and the dove, as well as the pose, of course.

The Collective Shiver

The Collective Shiver

I can hear the collective shiver going through the ranks of FabFree readers as I stand here in the glittering snow in very very little clothing.  Thank goodness my avatar has built in heating (or at least that’s what I tell myself all the time), or she totally would have been sneezing all over the place by now.  I have seen her sneeze – but never shiver, so maybe I’ve got this theory all wrong!

Festively Frosty

This very sultry little slip dress is the group gift for the holiday season at Nanika!  The group is just 50L to join, and there are plenty of lovely gifts on the wall there.  This dress is the latest.  It comes with several different textures for the main part of the dress, and all sorts of different colours for the lace portion as well, so you can totally play around with the look.  I also added these snowflake lights which were a gift there last year that you can still pick up on the wall to add to any outfit you like!  Yay!

Autumn’s Queen

Autumn Queen

Hello FabFree and happy Wednesday! Fall isn’t done yet and I’m hanging onto it as long as I can. And if I’m a Queen of Autumn how can it deny me? 

If you are a long time reader of the Blog here, you may recognize this lovely gown and cloak. It first appeared at BlueMoon Enterprise back in 2017 and was featured by our own Astrid. But it’s such an enchanting item I thought ‘what the heck’! Maybe it will catch the eye of some of our new folks.

The “Queen of Autumn” gown is the current Group Gift over at BMe so you can pick it up for free with your free Group tag.  You get the complete look here – the cloak, the shoulder pieces, the collar and necklace and the sleeves. All together it’s a show stopping look! Of course… just the dramatic red gown would be great for any of those upcoming Christmas formals too.

Hello FabFree! t’s all rainy and snowy and cold here in Real Life. SO I’m escaping to the Grid for a wonderful 25L Tuesday sale. I just love this soft feminine gown from Viki today.

In the wild places

In the wild places

While the world is full of troubles
And anxious in its sleep.

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild

With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.

~ W B Yeats

Fable 6 is all about Fairytales and darkling dreams and some of the best fantasy goods you can imagine. Plus most of the designers have set out a special priced “gift” for just 10L. The fair runs until August 31st so don’t wait too long… it’s vanish away like a dream in the morning light.

That Kind of Day

That Kind of Day

I find it a difficult thing to choose between strong, bright prints sometimes.  There are days where I feel like being swathed in tie-dye is exactly what my soul requires, and others are clearly a multicolour animal print days.  As  you can see, today is the latter, and it is all about the happiness, boldness and bright craziness that only a wacky animal print can engender.  Let’s do it!

Beautiful, Dirty, But You Don’t Need to be Rich

Yay!  A new group gift has appeared at B.D.R.!  Things had been a little quiet for a while, but they’re back and ready to colour your world with this awesome bodysuit and skirt combo.  The HUD is a thing of beauty, with loads of different lovely options to change the colour of both to your heart’s content.  You can also wear the bodysuit and skirt separately, which is really nice for people who are looking for swimwear with a bit more coverage.  The B.D.R. group is free to join, and there’s a wall full of awesome gifts.

The Fantasy of Japan

The Fantasy of Japan

I’m always a fan of the fantasy of travel.  Real travel is always enticing, of course – but when you get a bit fantastical with it (you know, like a full on kimono and gown plus a crown of lilies) it can always be a bit of a hoot.  Japan is a place I’ve always wanted to visit.  Everything from the traditional beauty of the temples down to the electric madness of Shibuya, I’m totally down for a bit of exploring.  The current Olympics have also done nothing to dull my need to visit this beautiful land!  Though my plane in RL may be grounded for now – it’s time to jet off and have a bit of the fantasy in SL.

The Gacha-geddon

You may have heard that Gachas will be going the way of the dinosaur in Second Life (ALAS!) but out of this bombshell change has come a few perks (for instance – the ridiculous amount of sales going on – check out our HUGE listing HERE) and also a few choice fun free finds too!  Over at Una, you’ll find a big pile of older gacha sets that you can pick up for free just by joining their free group!  I have the Akame set on, that comes with this long black gown, the corset belt, the kimono, and fan.  You’ll find the whole set (all sized for Maitreya) in the box, as well as so many others in the pile!  So generous!

More Pr!tty

I’m also wearing another of the latest group gifts from Pr!tty (you’ll remember I showed you one the other day HERE) which you will find tucked away in group notices.  The Pr!tty group is free to join, and there are so many lovely things packed in notices!  Just paste the following link into chat to join the group!

Finding Solace

Finding Solace

On days when RL is filled with grey clouds, and perhaps a bit of melancholy, I find solace in the beautiful sunsets and peaceful landscapes of Second Life.  There’s always somewhere to go that will bring you the peace you may need, and for that I’ll always be grateful.

Celebrate a Bit

LSR are celebrating 25000 group members with a new group gift – this sweet romper in a full fatpack of fun textures.  You’ll surely find something to love in the HUD since they range from animal print to ditzy florals and even a few flamingos, as you can see.  The LSR group is currently 99Lto join, totally worth it for access to a wall of group gifts and about a bajillion lucky boards too!

On the first day of Summer

First Day of Summer

Hello again my FabFree Darlings! I hope this Monday finds you happy and not in the least bit blue. Unless it’s blue sky and Summer breezes. Today is, in fact the first day of Summer! On such occasions I have to slip off to the woods or fields and just be a Fae in the wild. It’s an elf thing. 😉

But I found the perfect little wisp of a dress to dance in the woods. And it’s from one of my absolute favorite designers of all things fantasy. And… it’s free!

This is the “Ella” dress from Jangka and it’s the current free Group Gift. Jangka is such a great place to shop if you’re looking for Fantasy gear or things for Role Play. Most is of the fantasy genre but there is a growing CyberPunk section too. Plus, when you join the free Group, you can pick up a bunch of past gifts as well. Jangka regularly participates in sales and deals. Look for them in the 25L Tuesday group and the Wanderlust Weekend sales. 

Ella is a great example of Jangka’s quality designs. The dress, the sleeves and the armbands are all separate pieces so you can mix and match. The stunning blue I’m wearing is gift’s one color but the dress is available in the store for several others.

Walking on Sunshine

Walking on Sunshine

Hey FabFree! Remember way back on Friday when I said there where a TON of free gifts over at the Beauty Event? Well, I wasn’t just blowin’ smoke. I am just now finishing up unpacking! When I opened this frothy lacy little number, I knew I had to stop and blog it right away!

This is the “Sexy Ryn” from LsR and you can get it for free just for joining the Beauty Event free Group. I love the sunshine color on this, it just makes me so happy. You get this lacy bra and panties as well as a second set that is the same cheery yellow but a lot more sheer and show off. 

I’m still opening things and trying them on so don’t be surprised to see another Beauty Event goody. But why wait? Go grab your armfuls of free gifts now!
