Because sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast

Because sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beastSometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast ~Nicki Minaj

Good morning FabFree Readers! I don’t listen to a whole lot of Nicki Minaj, but I did borrow her quote because I love it!

Scandalizing News

Today I have news about a new group gift at Scandalize!  The other day, the Velure set in black was added to the giant wall of VIP gifts.  This set includes the Velure Skirt and Top in both plain and fluffy versions.  I went all out and put on the fluffy version, and I tried so hard to shoot this photo in a way where you could see all the cool fluff, but it’s really one of those outfits you gotta see inworld to do it real justice!  It also includes a belly chain which you can custom texture (not shown in my photo, but you can see it in the vendor ad below).  This group has a 100L group join fee for those of you that are not already in it.

Sometimes It’s Better In SL

Snapshot_003
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂 What do you think of my painting?  In real life, I love art but unfortunately I am just not very good at it.  In Second Life, I’m practically a pro as you can see.  In fact, I can do a lot of things better in Second Life like dancing, wearing stilettos, dancing while wearing stilettos, flying airplanes and dressing myself for free!

Never in real life do I get so lucky as to come across a pair of adorable overalls with a top as a free gift for joining a group.  It just doesn’t happen.  It totally should 🙂

Anyways About The Outfit…

You can find this overall and top outfit set called Nell Overalls as a free group gift at Moolala.  It comes as one piece (top and pants together) in a handful of mesh sizes with an alpha layer and a HUD that allows you to  make a few changes to the denim colour, as well as several colours for the dotty tank top.  The Moolala inworld group is 25L to join.

Look Sharp For Free

Java
Hello Fabulouses!  Sometimes in Second Life, you require something a little more on the professional side for attire, and it’s not always easy to find for free.  Perhaps you have an inworld job as a customer service representative for a shop, or another type of job where you need to put your capable and confident foot forward.  Either way, this “Comfort Here Dress” by JAVA that is set out as a freebie fits the bill.

Make The Right Impression

The Comfort Here Dress comes in XS-XL mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer for those that need it.  There are no mesh specific body fits for this gift, however I was able to get this to fit like a glove with my Maitreya Lara mesh body using it’s alpha HUD.  It also comes with some free jewelry, however I prefer less to more when it comes to jewelry and accessories, and just wore the dress.  You can find this free gift near the subscribomatic by the main entrance, just priced at 0L – no need to join a group to take advantage of the offer.

I Wear My Heart On My Socks

Snapshot_006Hey there Fabulouses!  It’s a long weekend for me, and I’m taking it easy with a cup  of tea and some comfy attire to catching up on emails, skimming through gossip on facebook and pinning a bunch of crafty things that I’ll probably never actually do.

Pull Your Socks Up

Ok, I’ll admit it…  I did steal another one of his shirts.  What can I say – it’s so soft, and it still smells like him (sighs), but these adorable Lea Socks in both red and white versions are courtesy of  C’est La Vie as they have just added them to the ever growing VIP group gift shelf.  As a bonus, this group is free to join!  These “love”ly little socks are compatible with system bodies and several different mesh bodies as shown on the vendor ad below.
::C'est la vie !:: Lea socks 💖-GroupGift-💖

Hope you have a super chill day too!

Spelling 101

Snapshot_007School Is In Session

Hey there FabFree!  In my last post I showed you a group gift by MonaLISA [HERE], and as I was digging through the rest of the items I picked up at the same time, I came across this great business suit that had a real teachery kind of feel to me.  It reminded me that “someone” was picking on my Canadian spelling last week in blog comments posted [HERE] and I had threatened to school him on the subject.

I honestly have no idea why we have different spellings for the same words between Canada and the USA. It’s probably one of those things we’ll never figure out with history going back and forth… Just saying…  I wasn’t wrong!

Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit

The MonaLISA Business Mini Skirt & Suit Jacket both come in S-XL mesh sizes with alpha layers.  As I mentioned in my previous post regarding MonaLISA, the group is 100L to join.

Hey, I Put Some New Shoes On

On my avatar, I am also wearing the latest group gift shoe offer by Phedora!  The Marian Heels have been added in a full fatpack of colours to the ever growing group gift section at their shop.  With a one time 300L join fee, you can pick up several fantastic pairs of shoes that are compatible with many types of feet.

In A Hurry

As Edi mentioned in her post earlier today [HERE], it’s Fifty Linden Friday… and if you are really quick, you can still stop by Maxi Gossamer and pick up their Fifty Linden Friday offer for today.  It’s a little tough to see in my post, but you can buy their Love Catcher Heart Necklace and Earring set for 50L, just today!

Class dismissed!

Part Of Your World

American Bazaar are continuing their 4th birthday celebrations and more great free items have appeared on the gift tables outside the store from some very generous designers who are helping with the festivities! I have already shown some of the gifts in this post here so be sure to check that out too!

There are lots of gifts that come with applier HUDS so if you wear breast enhancements then you will find some great additions to your wardrobe! Of course if you don’t wear them then all the items are workable for you too! The Dat Titteh top by Hollipocket is one of those that looks just as cute on mesh enhancements as without though it comes with applier support for Lola Tango and Lush. I kind of like the contrast of the bright blue with my Ariel Red hair! My shoes are the Singapore Cream shoes for SLink High Feet by Essenz. These are amazing shoes to have in your collection as they will go with pretty much anything so be sure to pick these up!

Untitled

The Lace Corset by Biddy is another great top that comes with applier support for Lola’s, Phat Azz and Banned. I think it goes really well with the Fitted Mesh Skinny Pants that are by American Bazaar. The pants arent part of the celebration gifts but I bought them so I could show the tops to you. They are very reasonably priced and are definately going to be ones I wear very often!

Untitled

I am a sucker for a cute pastel dress and I just adore the Azura Dress (Coral) by LadyLuck! The Dulce Beret by Ariskea is the perfect little addition to wear with the dress and looks so adorable!

Untitled

My hair and skin in this picture are two great items available at the new round of The Arcade Gacha! The Skye II SKin by Glam Affair is so pretty with such expressive eyes. The tintable eyebrows that I am wearing are also included! I am completely in love with the gorgeous Ocean hair by Olive! Their gacha contains some amazing colourways with the option of winning them in this Ocean style or another style called Belle.. hmmm.. I wonder who that could be modelled after?

Untitled

My nails are the gorgeous Princess Glitter Nails by Free Bird and are their prize in the Enhance My Avatar Hunt. The prize costs L$5 to purchase! Pink glittery nails make Tiana very happy!

Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are 🙂 Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

CoffeeHouseHipster2

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

CoffeeHouseHipster3

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved 😛  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree 🙂

Until next time, TTFN *waves*
