Rebel Rebel, put on your dress

Rebel Rebel

Hello Fab Free’ers!  I am really excited to share with you the first of hopefully many fantastic freebies.  I’ve read the FabFree blog daily for years and it’s a real honour to have been accepted as a FabFree blogger.  I have always loved hunting down freebies, cheapies and bargains, and will enjoy it even more now that I can share my finds with you all!

Talk to me!

Feel free to contact me if you want any more details on something I post, or just to chat, or to tell me about some awesome freebies, cheapies or bargains you think I need to know about!

Redheads should never wear green

Who says?  Honestly, this is one of those silly rules I grew up hearing.  Redheads must steer clear of wearing anything green.  Pfft.  Sometimes rules are just meant to be broken, and this is definitely one of them, and that is why Zsa is a proud to be a rebel!

Beautiful simplicity

Even though I disagree with the redhead/green rule, I am a big believer in the old adage that less is more, and this beautiful gown, one of the newest group gifts from Hilly Haalan, demonstrates this perfectly – so simple, so classy.  Hilly’s group gifts are always such a treat.  Nadia is a beautifully flowing gown that gives you an amazing silhouette, reminiscent of the movie stars of the 40’s.  As she often does, Hilly has generously given us not just one colour but a whole hud full – 15 colours in fact.  So, in effect, 15 beautiful gowns for free!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Standard Large & Standard Small (alpha included)

One Magical, Misty Morning

One Magical, Misty Morning
Hello there, FabFree Readers!  I’m Kathryn Vayandar, one of the two newest bloggers for Fabulously Free, but you can call me Kat.  A long time Second Life resident (8 years…..practically an SL senior citizen, but don’t get the walker ready yet!), I’m a dedicated bargain hunter and I’m excited to share my shopping adventures with you.

Today, my puppy and I took a stroll on a quiet country road in The Forest, an enchanted woodland sim that hosts a shopping event each month.  While Ripley wandered off, happily sniffing out bunny trails, I paused, enjoying the misty morning light, clad in the first Fabulous Find I’d like to share with you.  Knowing the day would quickly warm up, I chose to wear the cute, knotted top from Hottest Fashion’s gift for Third Life members.  The Melanie Set also includes a pair of white, high-waist shorts, but since the morning air was brisk, I donned a pair of sleek, leather pants from Greane Design which I discovered on The Marketplace for only 69 lindens.  My comfy Tawny Sandals from Slipper Originals and The Shadow Lord Choker (a free gift from Ronsem) blogged here by Love Trill, completed my ensemble.  The necklace is an older gift, but it is one of my favorite casual pieces and is still available, so I thought I’d mention it in case you might be interested.

Oh dear, I think I need to rescue the rabbits from Ripley…..until next time, happy shopping!

Sometimes you need a little rock time… and today I took Holli and Dave with me. Really!

You see, I headed to the Purple Gator Rock Club, but I knew I needed the duds to go with it, so before I went downtown to rock out, I hit the hunt scene first! The Newify Your Body Hunt has some great creators participating, including Hollipocket, and I was thrilled to be able to pick up this fantastic Lick Me Up Sweater in Peppermint Aqua for FREE as part of that hunt! YUM!

P.S. You’re looking for a little New Year’s hat for this hunt!

And you know a girl has GOT to do her nails before heading to the club for music, sooooo…. my next stop was Hello Dave, where there is an extra special gift out right now! You can pick up Hello Dave‘s 100 Group Gift out at the moment that is a HUGE mega gift pack. This is a FREE group gift to group member, and the group is FREE to join and the pack is jam packed with appliers.

A modern day flowerchild – peace, love and all that other stuff.

flowerchild1

Hello all you wonderful FabFree readers. So, RL has been a little rough for me the past 2 weeks, and while I won’t go into things, all I will say is I really needed a break from it all. It got me thinking though, what I wouldn’t give to be back in the 60’s and become a flowerchild. You know what I’m talking about right? Carefree, happy, peaceful, doing whatever they wanted whenever, and not seeming to worry over much at all. At least that’s what the movies I’ve seen with these types of characters have taught me, and movies are always right…right? In honour of these thoughts of mine, I’ve put together what I think is a modern take on a 60’s flowerchild.

flowerchild2

It all started with me putting in random search words on the Marketplace to find new items to show you all. I happened across a really cute top from Moon Amore. It was the Hey Sexy Lace top in white, and at only L$10, I had to have it. Clicking on the listing for the Moon Amore Marketplace store, I started browsing, and found the lovely high-waisted Vintagmatic Pants in Blue. With the pretty flower pattern, and lace detail on the waist…they were perfect to go with my top. They too were only L$10!. Both pieces are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. I will warn you, the top is semi-transparent. Lighter toned skins will be alright, but I still chose to add a pretty bra underneath.

flowerchild3

Next I needed shoes. I had happened to be wandering around the Boho Culture Fair, which finished on the 2nd, and found the gacha from Elysium with these fun fringed wedges. For only L$50 a play, you get 2 sets of shoes, a solid coloured pair like what I am wearing, and a pair with a cork sole. They are meant for mid feet from SLink or Maitreya. Now, you may ask, why am I telling you about these if the Fair is already closed down? I actually messaged the creator and owner of Elysium and asked her if she planned to put that gacha in her store, and she thought it was a great idea and said she’d try to put it out this weekend. So, if you head to her store and if it’s not there yet, give it a little time and check back. They are totally worth it.

flowerchild4

The last piece to my flowerchild puzzle was funky nail polish, and I had just gotten a notice from La Boheme saying there were new Bi-weekly L$10 polishes out for the start of the month. The beautiful bright colours, and sweet Indian inspired pattern (albeit hard to see in my photo) of the Marakech set, won me over immediately. These will work for SLink, Maitreya, and bodies that can use the Omega applier system, and are for both the fingers and toes. I had a little fun with mine, choosing to do 2 different colours from the hud for SLink/Omega on my fingers. This set will only be at this price for the first half of the month, so don’t wait too long to run and grab it.

So, what do you think? Would I make a good modern-day flowerchild? With my slightly wild hair and being surrounded by nature? Whether you agree or not, you have to admit, these were some great deals, and I can see this being one of my go-to looks.

I hope you have a wonderful Friday evening, or Saturday morning, depending on your location, and I will see you all again soon! Until next time, TTFN *waves*

Mishmash! This Women’s Hunt Stuff is a Blast!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is in Full Swing and with less than two weeks left to hit 150 participating stores, I’ve been hitting the grid like a potato-masher so I could mishmash some fall styles for your wardrobe (and mine!)… and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with these amazing finds!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [3]

My first stop on our Women’s Stuff Hunt tour will be Sweet Temptations where I found the outfit which I used as a “base” for the rest. (It is pictured above.) This sexy sort of safari feeling style called Azahara is fully mesh in all the standard sizes and includes an amazing set of gold mesh boots which are slink feet compatible (for high feet). The little red shirt was a breeze to find and FREE… and I was off and on my way to hunt again!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [1]

As you can see in the picture above, those boots from the Azahara outfit quickly became a staple in my wardrobe. My next stop, however, was U:Refined {U.R.} Fashion Designs where I picked up this sleek and versatile brown dress. The gift includes system layers as well as an omega applier and has a mesh panel to make the skirt blend for a flawless look. Well worth the 1L Women’s Stuff Hunt gift tag price!

I then dropped by Stars! where I was able to hunt for the great set of Fall Leaves Jewelry you see in the picture above. Another item that I am sure will become a wardrobe staple! Once I found the little red Women’s Stuff Hunt shirt, it too was a FREE Hunt Gift and voila! Another mishmash fall outfit for you!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [3]

Pictured above, you’ll notice that Astrid is still sporting that fabulously sultry chocolate dress from U:Refined {U.R.} Fashion Designs (I told you we’d be mishmashing!) but I added a little flair to it with two other gifts.

If you take time to Hunt at OSITO, their Women’s Stuff Hunt gift is the fabulous Leather Rose Jacket pictured both above and below, which I found to be perfect for mixing and matching with many different styles of outfits. It’s mesh, comes in all the standard sizes, and was another FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift!

If you are a collector of poses and enjoy photography, you’ll also want to take a glance at Pics n Poses before you finish your Hunting. Their Women’s Stuff Hunt Prize is also a FREE gift and is the pose featured above called “Glance” of course!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [4]

As you can see above, I am still donning that jacket from OSITO and the earrings from the Fall Leaves Jewelry Set from Stars!, but this time with another outfit.

If you head over to LOoLOo & Platypus you can pick up this Fall Flowers Set. The top comes in system layers as well as an omega applier (yay!).  The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes, and the outfit includes the mesh boots as well! All this for 1L? How can you go wrong!

I hope you have as much fun mishmashing and hunting as I did!

Modern Geisha

Modern Geisha

Evening Fab Free’rs, hope you’ve all had a great day! I spent mine doing all sorts of not fun very mundane real life stuff. It’s not so bad though, because now I get to share pretty accessories with you. 🙂 Tonight’s post is stacked with some really beautiful accessories that I picked up at a new event called Creators Collection Box. At the event you’ll find everything from furniture to clothing, much of which is specially discounted just for the duration of the event. Several of the participating designers also placed out special gifts, simply wear your CCB (Creators Collection Box) tag and pick them up for FREE. Out of the several gifts I picked up, I decided to show my favorites, which include the umbrella, the bow in Pru’s hair, the lovely bouquet of roses, the chest tattoo, and these pretty eyes. Some of the items are also scripted and have poses, so I took some additional photos.

First however, the adorable bow in Pru’s hair is one of the many FREE Gifts at CCB. It comes from Amiable. I positioned it differently than the default to better fit Pru’s hairstyle. Pru is wearing the bow in black, however the gift includes a pink version and a cream colored version.

Umbrella Poses

This Japanese style umbrella is gorgeous, and I had a lot of fun posing with it. The umbrella is the FREE CCB gift from Silvery K. It is very detailed, and includes a menu for changing the pose, opening or closing the umbrella, turning particles on or off, and re-sizing. The above photo shows the 3 poses, two for when the umbrella is open and one for when it is closed. Please note that the pose only changes how you hold the umbrella, not so much your stance. You can also use the touch menu to turn the animation off and on for different poses. I found that if you have a pose that initially “overrides” the umbrella’s hold, turning the umbrella animation off, then back on fixes it so you can use your own ao/sits/stands or whatever and still be holding the umbrella properly.

Old Rose Poses

Another beautifully done absolutely FREE CCB gift with poses are these “Old Rose Bouquets” by RH Design House. There are three colors, red, blue/lavender, and a pretty pink. In addition, the gift comes with two standing poses, and one sitting pose specifically for holding the flowers. I really can’t decide if these roses or the umbrella are my absolute favorites of all the gifts. I sincerely love these flowers though, and intend to leave them out in my home so even when I’m not holding them, just so I can see them.

Tattoo & Eyes

Speaking of seeing, the eyes Pru has in are also a FREE CCB gift. They are by *(OO)*Yuki, and come in a four-pack of pretty variations of the basic eye colors, brown, green, blue, and black. The eyes are mesh and included in the package is an alpha to hide system eyes. Also shown in the above photo yes yet another FREE CCB gift by Chocolate Atelier. The Valentine’s themed chest tattoo comes in color and monotone versions, and includes system layers, as well as appliers for Slink Physique, WowMeh, and Maitreya.
