Meet Me at Dusk

Enjoy Every Purple Moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I don’t know about you, but I can’t resist the color purple.  Today’s post features a gorgeous formal gown that I picked up for free as a hunt prize in the Twisted Hunt Fall 2021 (Beyond the Veil).  This is a time-sensitive post because the event draws to a close on September 30th, but this beauty is well worth a journey down the hunt trail.

Fit for a Royal

With its slightly puffed upper sleeves, intricate print on the bodice, and “v” shaped waistline, the free Clyra gown flatters your curves.  I love how the full-length skirt drapes gracefully to the ground and is loose enough to make it easy to move without being cumbersome.  I felt so elegant as I wore it, and found myself searching for a castle to visit.  Although it’s not designed specifically for a mesh avatar, I was able to get the perfect fit by adjusting the alpha of my Maitryea mesh body.  If you are still rocking a classic avatar, the included alpha layers will allow you to opt for wearing the dress with and without your feet showing.  As I stated earlier, the hunt runs only until the end of September, so if you like this frock as much as I do, head on over soon to *DSO* (Designs by Starla) to do some sleuthing of your own.  You’ll be searching for a small dusk-colored cube.

Sizes:

  • Alpha layers with and without feet
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L

Until my next post, happy hunting!

The Colors are a Changin’

When Autumn Comes to Town

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am popping in with a quick post to share my latest hunt prize and a budget-friendly crop top with you.  I know, I know, the leaves are changing, but I can’t bring myself to give up my summer tops just yet.

Don’t Forget to Be Owlsome

First, I just had to tell you about these adorable baubles from Loordes of London.  The Republican Redundancy earrings are part of the Changing of Colors Hunt 5 and feature shimmering gold accented with brown eyes and wing spots.  All you’ll need to do to add them to your inventory is to locate the hunt object, an orange leaf, hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the tiny prize fee.  There are 25 stops along the hunt trail, and each item costs just one Linden dollar.  You have until September 30th to do some sleuthing of your own.

She’s a Rebel

Soon I will have to at least start wearing a jacket, but for now, I’m enjoying soaking up some sunshine on these early fall days as I take in the foliage.  My new Bebe Mesh Crop Top from !Rebel Hope is a lovely shade of brown that is perfect for the autumn landscape hues.  With its halter-style neck, soft texture, and cute laces on the side, it’s sure to please.  I picked it up on the Marketplace for a reasonable 25 Linden dollars.  The folder includes an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh avatar body types.  A color change HUD for the laces with 8 options allows you to customize your look.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Back to Nature

Back to Nature

I went for a ramble through nature today and listened to all the glories that can be found therein.  Birds chirping, leaves fluttering in the light breeze, and even the chatter of a squirrel or two.  I love the time of year where petals are slowly floating through the air from blossom-laden trees, and all seems full of life and promise.  Ok, I got my poetic jag out of my system, let’s get to the deals!

7 is a Good Number

It’s time for another round of 77th street, and with it, plenty of great 7L deals!  I stopped by this round and picked up this lovely dress by Faida for just 7L, as well as these cute wedges by Lybra (sized for Kupra, Freya, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink and Tonic) at 7L as well.  Don’t forget that the 7L deals at 77th street come in limited amounts, so if you’re into it, don’t delay!  Also, don’t forget to pick up the free pair of shoes for FabFree members too!

  • Legacy

77th Street runs until May 27th.

The Hills Are Alive…

The Hills Are Alive...
The hills are alive with the sound of….freeeeebiiiiiies!  I’m crying it from the mountain tops today, though I feel like I’m often doing that.  I think my catchphrase needs to just be “Oh you like this outfit? It was free!”.  I have a few friends who always giggle after I say it, because they are always expecting my line.  Anyway, back to crying from the tops of mountains!

Powerful

Mangula has a new subscriber gift!  As per usual, it’s super awesome and entirely free.  This one comes with the knotted shirt, pink bustier, skirt and even a pair of knickers that match.  They can all be worn separately, making this one pretty darn versatile.  To get it, just click on the subscribo unit above the front desk, and then head over to the gift section and you’ll find the vendor there.  There are plenty more awesome free gifts while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Curvy
  • Freya

  • Petite

Wait, WHAT?

Oh guys…hold on tight because Pure Poison is having a bit of a clear out with lots and lots of their older creations marked down to just 1L on Marketplace.  I KNOW.  You’ll be rolling in completely gorgeous shoes forever if you click through to all the 1L awesomeness.  You’ll also find some priced at 5L and 10L too.  The tea is that you can grab these goodies for this weekend, and the 1L stuff will be around until April 30th when they will then be deleted FOREVER!  Gasp!  My suggestion to get to the shoe hoard is to head to the Pure Poison MP store, choose “lowest to highest price” and click off “demos” on the bottom left so they don’t show you 50,000 demos.  You’ll find them easily then!  I bought the Katarina sandals for just 1L, and I couldn’t be happier!

The Quest for Carbs

The Quest for Carbs

There was a thing I used to do on weekends that would totally get me through the rest of the week back in the early 2000’s.  I’d hop on the subway, head downtown to the mall, buy a bunch of stuff I didn’t need (it was often some form of fun costume jewelry, a t-shirt I didn’t need and possibly some butterfly-shaped hairclips…but anyway) then head to get some horribly unhealthy food.  Wouldn’t that be nice right about now?

Don’t be Jelly

There’s a new group gift at Envious!  The shirt, dress, garter and shoes all come in this generous group gift and even better, the group is currently free to join!  I’m not sure for how long, since it actually says the price will go up November 3rd…so hop on this while you can before it changes!

Update:  Looks like this group will be free to join until November 30th!  The date in the inworld group was just a typo!  Yay!

In the Bag

Memoire also has a new gift out, and it’s this fun little purse.  It’s shaped like a Happy Meal, which is kinda awesome, really.  I think that’s what made me think of trips downtown to eat copious amounts of trans fats.  Anywho, the group is free to join, and the bag comes in a bunch of different colours too.  Sweet!

I think fries come with this shake!

Optical Illusion

Optical Illusion

Ok, I know I’ve been doing a lot of dark and Halloweeny, but now and then a pop of colour is needed.  I’m sure some readers out there also long for it, so this post is for you!

Now I’m Free

Did you know that The Free Dove gets updated regularly?  There’s always something new for you at SL’s premier freebie outlet.  The owner and organizer, Dove, works really hard to procure free and fabulous finds for the Second Life community.  You can find all the latest updates listed on their blog HERE.  This striking gown from Tiffany Designs is a new addition, and it really makes me think of those optical illusion books that were so hot in the 90’s.  I can’t even remember what they were called (please don’t let it be “optical illusion books”, because that would be semi-embarrassing).  On the same table, you’ll find a matching jewelry set for free, and a pair of shoes (not pictured) that go with the look perfectly.  To get them, and a bajillion other free items, just join The Free Dove group for free!

Je Vois La Vie en Pose

A new round of La Vie en Pose has taken off, and as per usual the designers are spoiling us with free gifts!  Join the La Vie en Pose group for free, and you’ll be able to pick up a free gift from each stall.  There are some really cute poses, and this one from Lyrium is quite different in the fact that it is more of an animation than a pose.  It cycles through a selection of cute movements that are super fun to take pictures of, and are really quite adorable.  There’s lots more!  Head over to La Vie en Pose before October 25th when it all goes aurevoir!

Bye for now!

Horror Vibes

Horror Vibes

Hello hello Fab Free’rs, of the many many things I love about what I like to call Halloween season are the scary movies. I’m particularly fond of classic horror, and I can’t help but love the horror comedy smashup that is Young Frankenstein. What does all of that have to do with this post? Why the pillows of course! I have a few fabulous freebie finds to share for this post. I hope you like them.

MoonPhase

These too-cool-for-words pillows and the cheeky embroidery wall art pieces are a free group gift at MoonPhase. These decor items are all every bit as awesome in person as they are in photos. The MoonPhase group is free to join. Also, there are other free group gifts available.
Moonphase Freegroup Gift!

ChicModa

In addition to the fantastic decor items, I picked up the latest group gift at ChicModa. My cropped tee reads “Drink Up Witches” and I think it is so so cute. The ChicModa group is free to join for a limited time, so do not wait to join!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy
ChicModa Group Gift // Drink Up Witches Top
Project Crystal’s Fashion

Lastly, a new-to-me shop called Project Crystal’s Fashion has a pair of perfect-for Halloween body suits for just 1 linden on the Marketplace. I did attempt to find an in-world location, but was unsuccessful. I’ve always liked the idea of wearing certain more lingerie-like pieces as outerwear in a fashion sense. This is for me one of those “fashion experiments” if you will. I wore one of the BOM layer bodysuits under the high-cropped top from ChicModa.

Thinking Late Thoughts

Hello hello Fab Free! Are you ready for the new week to start? I’m not so sure I’m ready for Monday so I’ve been avoiding thinking about it too much by taking full advantage of the limited time free group join at Carol G. For a few days only the Carol G group will be free to join. There are quite a few male and female free group gifts, most if not all of which have been recently updated to include BOM layers. Also, there is a male and a female MM board that changes frequently.

I picked up this pretty red henna style leg tattoo for free by participating in the group only MM Board at Carol G. Once again, the free group join is a limited time thing, so if you’ve been waiting to join the group now is the time.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, BOM Tattoo Layers

I also came across this cool tied tank top at gSpot. It’s a current group gift, and it comes with a hud that has 5 color choices. I really like the bold color choices, and the arcane-like symbols in the pattern are a definite vibe. The gSpot group has a join fee of just 69 linden.

Conversing with Spirits

Spirit Conversation

Hello Fab Free. We’ve made it more than half way through the week, hallelujah! Recently I did a bit of wandering through Second Life and stumbled across the Tlalli event. I’d never been before. Let me just tell you, the setting for this shopping event is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful Latin themed event in a vibrant setting that made me feel like I had been transported to a quaint town in Mexico. The setting alone is well worth the visit to the Tlalli event. There I picked up a few of the gifts some vendors had out while enjoying the scenery. Speaking of gifts, I also picked up the new group gift at SPIRIT, and a thank you gift by Rosary. From here I’ll get to telling you about all these fabulous finds. I hope you enjoy them!

Tlalli Gifts

Zinnias

I think this llama succulent planter is just the cutest. It is a free gift at the Tlalli event by Zinnias. This little guy is completely free, just look for the gift box at the Zinnias booth at the Tlalli event. No group is required.

Cherry Bunny

If you’re wondering about the bright green sugar skull in my hand, it too is a gift at Tlalli. You’ll find this 5 linden gift at the Cherry Bunny booth. What is it? It’s a typer! Wear it and it will appear invisible until you begin to type in open chat. Then the sugar skull will appear in your hand, you’ll give it a little shake and appear to listen to it. So cute!

SPIRIT

Next up, this cute deep grey colored sweater is the newest group gift at SPIRIT. It could be worn as a dress or a top. I found it fit nicely over my Blueberry jeans (listed in the credits). The sweater has a hud with it that allows you to change the color of the cute side ribbons. The SPIRIT group has a join fee of 25 linden, and there are past group gifts available as well.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

SPIRIT Group gift - Autumn 2020

Rosary

My manicure is a lovely free gift from Rosary as a Thank You gift to all customers. There is no group needed for this pretty set of nails. The set has a few preset options with very pretty floral accent nails. Each hand size included also has several nail lengths to choose from. You’ll find this free gift waiting in a little package on the desk at the Rosary main store.

Sizes Included: Maitreya (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Belleza (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Slink (short medium, large, xl, xxl), Legacy (short, medim, large, xl, xxl)

Thank You
