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


Hunting Through Alleyways

Hunting Through Alleyways

Time to do some alleyway fashion posing.  This seems to be a thing that happens a lot in SL.  You know, nip down an alleyway and be super fashion about the whole thing.   I will pose in an alleyway if I must, but only if I get some dumplings after.  Promise?  Ok!

Whose Bags?

I’m heading back to The Free Dove today, purveyors of all things free and fantastic.  They’re upping the ante this month by bringing back their monthly hunts!  It’s been a few years, so it’s super exciting that this tradition is back in full force.  Looks like each month there will be a new designer featured, and to kick things off it’s MYBAGS.  The way it works is that you join the free Free Dove group, then search The Free Dove for 5 little gift boxes.   Each one contains one of the bags you see in the vendor ad below.  If you want the other 5, just head on over to MYBAGS and search for 5 boxes there!  That’s 10 fun gifts all for free.   I’m super excited!  I picked up the #1 bag, and to be honest I’m not sure if I grabbed it at The Free Dove or MYBAGS, but that’s all part of the fun.

And More!

While I was at The Free Dove, I also picked up these fun sparkly pants by Wellmade and the matching shoes (sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet).  You always know you’ll end up with a great outfit for free when you visit.  Again, just join the free group and the giant amount of gifts are yours for the taking!

Quiet Day

Quiet Day

Good evening, FabFree. I hope the start of your weekend was a wonderful day. I spent a very quiet day just hanging out with friends. The nicest part of that is just being comfy all day.

I picked up this super casual overall set from FurtaCor. I just love FurtaCor’s group. It’s free right now to join and there are a ton of past gifts available ( Up the stairs behind the welcome desk) Plus Lucky Letter and Gachas galore. You could walk into the store with not a stich of clothing to your name and walk out with a full wardrobe!  

So, this is the ‘Claudia Set’ and it’s the latest ladies free gift for the Group. You get the cute overalls, and the little sweater top both can be worn separately, and a pair of extra high top sneakers! The top and overalls come with a HUD to pick twelve shades of denim for the overalls and ten patterns/logos for the top. Just super cute!

Penny Lane

Penny Lane

I’m suddenly feeling very “Almost Famous” in this outfit.  There’s something a bit Penny Lane about it all, with a bit of fur here, a bit of wild abandon there…and rock and roll present throughout.   The fashion legacy of the 70’s echoes throughout today’s trends, and I think it will for a long time – at least I hope it does!  Let’s get you in some dangly earrings and faux fur, and you’ll feel the vibes too.

Coco but not Chanel

COCO are always so generous.  The regularity and awesomeness of their group gifts are always things you can count upon, and this cool jacket is the latest in a long line of goodies.  It comes in this understated charcoal colour, and two different sizes (not specific to any body, just smaller and larger chest sizes). To get your own, join the COCO group for free!  There are loads of other gifts out too, enough to get you a whole new wardrobe.  Yay!

Look How they Shine For You

My sweet and celestial earrings are the newest group gift from Romazin.  They are known for their delicate jewelry, and these pretty and dangly shoulder-dusters sure make me happy.  They are completely free when you join the free Romazin group – and there are other lovely gifts for you there too.  With these pretty earrings, you also get a quite extensive HUD so you can match them to pretty much any outfit.  How nice is that?

I’m suddenly in the mood for some loud music….hmmm….

A Change of Pace

A Change of Pace

It was high time to head to the beach.  After a long day of work, buried under pages and pages of who knows what drivel,  I looked at my watch and thought “you know…I need some vitamin sea today”.  I put on my unnecessarily complicated sandals (but so fashion!) and slipped into something summery then headed down to feel a bit of warmth.  I was ever so glad to have brought my camera with me, just so I could capture a bit of summer and carry it with me wherever I went afterwards.  A few snaps of palm fronds will keep me going until I can escape again!

Feeling Lucky

I was a bit inspired for some warmth today after I saw the newest lucky boards at Luas.  This cute little outfit had me dreaming of warmer climes the minute I saw it (you have the option to add or remove the tied jacket)!  To gain access to the lucky boards at Luas, just join their group for 50L, then wait for your letter to come up!  There are also loads of really great group gifts for you to pick up while you’re there, making this group join fee ever so worth it.

Roman Sandal Empire

Looks like Empire are having a bit of an item retirement sale at the moment.  The store isn’t shutting down, but all items in the store are on sale before they disappear forever, making room for the new.  Pretty much ever pair of shoes and accessories are 199L (some 99L!) for fatpacks, which is an awesome deal.  However, what caught my eye was the 35L per pull gachas you’ll find at the back of the store.  I got these awesome sandals as well as the fun glasses for just 35L each.  Worth a shot!

Just because you’re stuck indoors, doesn’t mean you can’t look cute, amirite Fab Fam?  My New Year’s resolution is to be cute as a tiddly and ready to wink whenever and wherever!  (That sentence is up to you to figure out…)

Stay Cozy

Quinnty’s is starting the year off right with a cozy little cropped sweater as a group gift!  It comes with several different texture options (all themed around glitchy computers, something I hope the New Year doesn’t bring me…ahem!).  You can get yours by joining the Quinnty’s group for 50L, then pay the vendor 1L which will be promptly returned to you.

Thong Song

I hope my subtitle doesn’t get random songs from the 2000’s in  your head (or maybe I do…), but this cute little sporty thong has me feeling chill and sexy all at once.  It’s the latest group gift from Mug, and comes in 4 different colours to keep you happy.  As with most of Mug’s releases, there are a lot of different sizes and bulges for male or female looks so these really are quite unisex.  To get to the different sizes and options, just use the HUD.   The Mug group is currently 250L to join, and there are several very nice group gifts on the wall there for you.

Baby Please Come Home

Baby Please Come Home
They’re singing Deck The Halls
But it’s not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

Staying Home for the Holidays

I know many of us are missing our nearest and dearest these days, but let’s not get too down about it all.  I often think about how lucky we are to have the technology to be able to see our family from afar, and I choose to focus on that.  The other thing that keeps me happy is the fact that so many designers are super generous, handing out amazing gifts.  Trompe L’Oeil have been consistently amazingly generous, and they’ve done it again, this time with the completely free Cecilia cottage.  It’s sooooo nice!  I’m totally going to pull up everything I have on my land to start over with this cute cottage.  At 53LI, it’s pretty light on the prims for the size and detail as well.  Head on over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore and click on the vendor just by the front doors, and it will be yours for FREE!  There’s also a sweet bench for free too.

On the 6th Day of Christmas…

I’ve been harping on incessantly about how Christmas isn’t over yet, and I stand by my rantings.  Today is the 6th day of Christmas and Lybra brought to me…. an awesome gift calendar!  for each of the 12 days of Christmas, they’re giving their group members (the group is free to join) a new gift.  I am showing off day 1’s shoes (super awesome platforms sized for Belleza, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink and Tonic) and day 3, which is a classic grey denim shift dress.  Lybra are so generous with their goodies – you’ll find lots of group gifts on the wall too, as well as some lucky chairs (and a FabFree gift too!).
UPDATE:  Lybra is back – Enjoy!

Snow!

Snow!

Hey FabFree! I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful holiday filled with happiness, family and friends and all the good stuff! I sure did. I’m so stuffed with good stuff I can barely move.  Plus… my boxing day came with 12 and a half inches of snow! I was so excited, I got to wear those new snow boots I was saving. 

Now where is all this going, Juli? I hear you asking. Soooo I had snow on the brain when I saw this super cute cropped sweater from Fatal Fashion and had to have it! This is the briefly named “Winter Sweater” and you can pick it up for just 10 little lindens. The sweater comes in blue, black and red if white doesn’t tickle your fancy. And it this special price for everyone, no group needed. BUT you may want to join Fatal Fashion’s free group because there are a ton of past group gifts out all for just a few lindens each and there are free gifts every week! Plus, the advent calendar is also still available to the group.

Now, you guys now the drill. ALL gifts and special sales and what not are available at the time of posting but may go away or change at a moments notice. So don’t delay on this one, my Fab Dears!

It’s beginning to look a lot like….MORE GIFTS!  Everywhere you go!  Oh my goodness, FabFree.  There is so much going on on the grid right now that my eyes may be going criss-crossed.  Just when I think I’m getting through my list of things I want to show you, I have to add more to it!  I’m not complaining, I promise.  We’re so spoiled!

Miss Chic

I love Miss Chelsea‘s fashions with an undying passion.  They always are something that I know I *need* to have!  Every year around Christmastime, they spoil their group members with a lovely dress, which is always perfect for parties.  This year is no exception, and the Star Dress is just so sexy and slinky that I just don’t know what to do with myself.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours too!  To get your very own, join the Miss Chelsea group for 100L and click on the vendor that you’ll find on the main desk of the store.  You’ll find lots of other gifts there too, making this group join quite worth it.

Geometric Love

Alaskametro, another of my absolute faves has put out some sweet gifts for members of their group (which is 50L to join) underneath the Christmas tree in their store.  A fantastic array of Christmassy nail appliers with Maitreya and Omega appliers which just make me happy.  There are so many to choose from, I really don’t know which to put on first!  Though I usually do a really nice mix of them (which is an option on the HUD).  There’s also a skin (in several tones) and shape under the tree there for the new Lelutka Lilly head, which is free at this time (get your info on that HERE – you still have a few days!).

Group gift: "Xmas Geo" nail art appliers

No rest for the weary!

A Cup of Cheer

A Cup of Cheer

There’s nothing that makes me feel nostalgic and homey quite like a cup of hot chocolate.  There’s something about it that brings me back in time to snow days, and special Christmas gatherings where magic seems to permeate the air.

Elle est Belle

Belle Époque have a new group gift out that is perfect for all those inworld gatherings to celebrate the season.  Aren’t we lucky as residents of Second Life to be able to gather safely with friends?  To get this pretty and classic dress (which comes with a huuuuge HUD to change the colour), just join the Belle Époque group for 10L.  You’ll find a bunch of other really nice gifts there too!

Heel!

I love these cute little booties by La Perla.  The small details on them really make them special (I love those little heart-shaped buttons!).  The La Perla group costs only 1L to join and you’ll find a full wall of nice gifts (go upstairs to find it!) to pick up.  There are also several dollarbies on the gift wall too!  These boots come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.

Well, that’s Novel!

Santa Inc. is still going strong, and they have some really fun items.  As a quick reminder, if you spend more than 800L at the event, you’ll gain access to their fun surprise boxes.  Being the avid freebie hunter that I am, I aimed for something a little more budget friendly and saw that they have a free group gift as well!  This cute mug had me feeling warm and cuddly already!  The Novel Events group is free to join, making this cup of cheer totally free.

Here’s to you, dear readers!

Some Traditional Fare

SomeTraditional Fare

Time for some traditional Christmas fare – a bit of sushi will get you feeling ready to deck the halls in no time.  Ok, well maybe it’s not entirely traditional, but it is entirely delicious!

Back to Shop and Hop

We’ve given you a bit of taste of what’s available at Shop & Hop – the sprawling Linden event with jillions of free gifts.  But, since my last post, the perennial favourite Blueberry have put their gift out and it was worth the wait!  The Holiday Gift Top comes with 6 different texture options in the HUD and is just super cute.  I also picked up this bombastic headband from ChicChica while I was at it!  Isn’t it cute?  There are 3 different styles in the box, so there’s sure to be something you fancy.  As per usual, it’s all free – no need to join a group!

Let it Snow!

You’ll note I have some magical little snowflakes falling all around me, and that’s because Cazimi have put out a new free gift for everyone!  A really cute snowflake emitter, so that wherever you go you’ll be gently dropping snowflakes all around you.  I’ve always had a thing for particle emitters since the old days (when we used to call them poofers and they would explode whenever you landed somewhere…or maybe that’s still a thing…hmm…).  All free, just click on the vendor in the free gifts section of the store.
