FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


Yeah I’m Free

Yeah I'm Free

My shopping has been a bit too much “sale” and not enough “gift” lately, if you know what I mean. So I decided that the best way to bring things back into balance would be with a trip to Free Dove!

There was a bit of buzz here on the blog and in the inworld group chat a couple of months ago about Free Dove. The shopping area has been completely redone and updated. If you haven’t been there recently either, goooo. Free Dove is so great, for newer avis just as much as for seasoned ones like me (yes I’m seasoned ahem) who like freebs from great designers. You’ll need to join the free group and then start clicking. Pretty soon you’ll be rolling in free gifts. Here’s what I picked up for this look:

  • Free Top – A perfect summer top, with a fun hippie twist. This fringe top by FurtaCor will be easy to wear all summer and, let’s face it, for some of us it’s always summer SL! Included is a HUD full of colors and patterns to pick from as well as sizes for:
    – Freya
    – Hourglass
    – Isis
    – Maitreya
    – Physique
    – Venus 
  • Free Tattoo – I’m not typically a fan of color tattoos in SL, but these are so pretty and feminine and well done! It’s by Vezzo Ink and comes in various shades, I always pick the lightest because I feel like tattoos look a bit more realistic when they’re faded.
  • Free Skin – I might have squeed when I tried on this skin, an audible squee. It’s so lovely and just the fresh faced natural style that I go for. It is by Magnetic which was a happy surprise because they weren’t really on my radar before, but you can bet I’ll be searching for their mainstore very soon. This one is the head and body all together too which is always handy, as well as a shape (which I didn’t try on) and 4 skin tones – each in a brow/browless option and bodies for Maitreya and Legacy.

Yes, it’s a whole lot of free, and all seems right in the world again. ❤

I Believe

I Believe
I’ve long been a fan of the Witchwood sim and it’s two polar opposite shops – flowy, hippie, boho Petite Mort and dark, goth, witchy Oubliette. If you haven’t wandered Witchwood you honestly need to. And while you’re there you can join the free combo group for both stores that’ll let you take advantage of a shelf of free group gifts and free lucky boards in each!

Blushing

Do you ever just come across something and you can’t believe that it’s made so entirely perfectly? That’s how I feel about this top. Perfection. The way it hangs, the color, the texturing, all the little details – perfection. And do you know what’s even better? It was a free lucky board prize at Petite Mort. There are four free lucky boards at Petite Mort and four more at Oubliette, so you can scamper back and forth and keep an eye on both at the same time. So much goodness. So. Much. The blouse comes in sizes for:

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

All you’ve gotta do is join that free Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP group that we talked about earlier and wait for your letter! May the odds be ever in your favor.

Unexpected Freebie

When you’ve got an inventory like mine, just getting dressed is bound to include some freebies! I got it in my head that a denim skirt would be perfect for this look and started trying on options from my inventory. Wouldn’t you know it, this flowy sweet little number that I settled on just so happens to be a Blueberry group gift. It’s not new but it is so cute and well made. So I guess this is a reminder to all of us to not forget about the older stuff, because newer is not always better! The Blueberry group is only 20L to join and this gift includes a really great HUD of color and belt options, plus sizes for:

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

Counting My Blessings

telsiope FF GG, No Match No Tendencies

Happy 1st Friday of 2022! Although the real world is wild, crazy, and insane here in SL we have so many blessings. We usually don’t catch viruses or diseases here (at least I haven’t gotten any). But always remember this – boys have cooties!

Our fabulous, marvelous designers are always showering us with gifts or offering great prices an promos or sales. It’s fun to jump around the grid to discover new goodies. I’ve been doing a bit of this and that, going here and there to find fashion items you may like.

One of the newest FabFree group gifts (Free to join) comes courtesy of Telsiope’s Couture. This lovely delicately textured dress is Victoria. I love the way the gold threads swirl while making lovely patterns on the cloth. You could use this as casual or a semi-dressy wear.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • SLink HG

While I was scoping out goodies I made a trip to The Free Dove to see what was new. I found these tres chic heels from {Le’la}, the Unka Heels (Free gift at The Free Dove/Free group join needed). If you prefer a shiny shoe you will love these. The package includes sizes for Maitreya and Slink as well as an 8 color change hud.

Next I tripped on over to No_Match. There is a new Next Up game with a new to me style – No_Tendencies. Each try at the machine costs $50L. If you haven’t tried one yet it’s like a gacha but you know what you’ll get before you spend the $L. I scored this Black/white version on my 1st try. The included hud has 9 different shades from whites/greys/blacks. I’ll be going there often to catch the red hud!

Off I go again to scour the grid for goodies!

Peace,

Cre

Autumn Wind

Autumn Wind
Hiya, oh this is going to be such a fun post to do! First time in who knows how long Jacx has no tattoos, no piercing on. LOL almost feeling naked.

Daughter Of Fall

Winds stir, leaves rise in greeting as the daughter of fall returns to the forest to commune with nature. Embracing the spirits that dwell deep within, our lovely maiden is modeling the warm golden hues of fall showing the Meander/Me (Lemania Indigo) Autumn Wind offerings for The Fabfree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt, Nov.8th-Nov.30th. Starting with the gorgeous Meander/Me Autumn Wind dress, halter top style, wrap-around thigh cut, ankle-length skirt, in richly textured fall tones. For 5L and a little time hunting this dress can be yours. To carry forward the golden tones of fall, Lemania has created the most beautiful skin to go with this outfit. The Meander/Me Autumn Wind skin is just stunning, made for BOM, Lelutka, and looks really great on my Catwa Queen Head. For 5L and a bit of time, the skin is well worth the lindens and the effort. Now as the queen of accessorizing, there are times when you want simple, classic accessories, this is one of those times. This dress and skin combo can stand on its own. For 1L you can pick up the perfect earrings for this outfit. The Meander/Me Autumn Earrings 3 in silvertone, with fall hue mother of pearl shells, bring the right note to complete this wonderful outfit. And if you are into role-playing, this would be a good one to use.

All Heart

All Heart
Hiya, it’s Monday. Let’s start the week off with some awesome freebies.

Color My World

Color My World is my absolute favorite Chicago song. My world would be colored in pastels. Peach, mint, baby pink, lavender, butter yellow, and even some baby blue, but not too much. Now that I have waxed lyrically about colors. Let’s get to the good part. LOL. In my post, Love Garden here that the Reed Group was free to join. Not only does the Reed group give you free skin, but you also get access to 11 other GG, plus 3 Lucky Boards, including Reed Anna, this free rocking dress, has so much to offer, from the multi pastel color, sweater styling, and the best of all, the cutout heart 🙂

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Shoes!

That one word says it all. The Duchess Of Windsor once said, “You can never be too rich, or too thin.” I would have to disagree with the Duchess, you can never have enough shoes. When as a newlywed moving into my first home, my husband picked up a 4×4 moving box, as it was really heavy he asked “what’s in the box.” I said “shoes.” He said, “Why in the heck would you need that many shoes?” My answer was “to match my outfits.” LOL. Now that I have babbled on. The Breathe shoe group is free to join, one of the available free GG’s is the Breathe Fen Ling Heels, this bootie style laced heel, comes with a generous 21 color hud, sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and slink.) Not sure how much longer these 2 groups will be free, so grab your stilettos and run fast to these awesome stores.

That’s a wrap for today. Till next time

Hey Hey FabFree! If you’ve read any of my ramblings before, one of the things you know is I LOVE a good SL Hunt. And I am really excited about our very own “FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt” ! Have you seen the prizes? I could hardly pick one to start with…

But I had to go with this gorgeous bikini from !Devious Minds. This is the “Sea Breeze” suit and you can pick it up for 0L and a little hunting. The suit comes in three luscious colors: the Watermelon, I’m wearing, as well as ‘Beach’ and ‘Coral’. each one is just as pretty as the last. So why not collect all of them?!

The FabFree enchanted Forest Hunt runs until July 22nd so why not get lost in the woods?

Heart Songs

Hey FabFree! I’m feeling very mellow today, very much a wander in the meadows following the butterflies sort of feeling. Maybe it’s the beautiful SIM. Maybe it’s time of year. It could be the beautiful BoHo blouse and skirt I found over at the Witchwood Petite Mort Spring BoHo Hunt!

I do love it when two of my favorite designers team up for one of their awesome Hunts and sales! The Spring Hunt is accompanied this year by a huge sale in both stores. You can get 50% off the entire store until May 7! This does exclude Gachas and New items but it still leaves a ton of great bargains! 

The Hunt is happening between the stores and you can pick up a notecard at the landing point with clues and info and a cute little rose basket for free. Each item on the hunt is priced between 10L to 20L. I have never been disappointed with anything I ever got from Oubliette or Petite Mort and these Hunt items are no different. The details, textures and build are all perfect!  So don’t let anything stop you from loading up on these gorgeous spring clothes!  The Hunt and sale run until May 2 so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Spring, Do Your Thing

Spring, Do Your Thing

It’s usually around this time of year that I start grumbling about the fact that it’s not spring-like enough for me yet.  My part of the world tends to skip right over the pleasant part of blossoms and warm winds and whatever other things they try to tell you about in poems and books.  We get this greyish muddy season until May when things finally explode with life.  So, as per usual, I’m off to the fairer climes of SL to get in my Springtime cavorting.

Sounds Tasty

Pink Cream Pie has a new group gift for their members right now.  It’s this cute criss-crossed tank top that’s calling out Spring to “do it’s thing”.  And I couldn’t agree more!  To get yours, join the Pink Cream Pie group for 314L and then click on the vendor in the group gift area upstairs.  There are lots of nice gifts and new ones monthly, so totally worth it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

The Way it Goes

Mosquito’s Way (always one of my faves) also has a new group gift out, and they’re just so pretty I can hardly handle it.  These sweet flower-adorned pumps will have you ready for Spring in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.  You can get yours by joining the Mosquito’s Way group for 50L and then clicking on the vendor by the front desk.  There are a bunch of other awesome gifts too near the front doors.  These pretty heels come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Come on Spring!  GEEZ!

Here Comes the Sun

Here Comes the Sun

Hello hello, FabReaders! I’m still enjoying the Spring and everything it brings. Of course, it’s easier to say that here on the Grid where all these beautiful flowers and trees don’t make pollen! In real life, we may have the windows open but we’re also starting to sniffle a lot.

Spring also brings the need for some fresh new clothes for our fresh new season. Happily, I found what must be the perfect little dress for Spring at one of my absolute favorite designers: Poeme. This is the “Check Me Out” mini from Poeme and you can add this beauty to your closet for free. “Check Me Out” is the current gift for our fantastic FabFree Group members. So you can pick it up for free when you wear your group tag. Oh, and of course, the FabFree Group is free to join.  While you’re at Poeme, ‘check’ out all the other group gifts and lucky boards and cool stuff too!

She Walks in Beauty

She Walks in Beauty
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

Quiet as a Mouse

I thought I’d start my day off with a bit of Lord Byron.  Always one of my fave poems, though perhaps a bit self-aggrandizing today!  I’ll throw aside all my pomp and circumstance for the moment and get down to the freebies!  This loose and lovely boho dress is the latest group gift over at Mouse.  Something about the sleeves really made me feel all “wander lonely as a cloud”, so I headed off to the nearest field to twirl a bit.  The Mouse group is free to join, making this pretty dress entirely free.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Ebody
  • Kupra
