Fancy Free

Fancy Free

Oooh, she’s feelin’ fancy today, y’all!  I’m off to the opera, because of course I am on a Monday morning in August.  What are you doing?  Working you say?  Oh right, well – this fancy girl has no time for such pedestrian occupations.  I mean, I even have my lorgnette too peer at everyone imperiously through.  Look out world, the queen of everything is coming!

It’s Free, Tho.

Ok now that I got my ridiculous posturing out of the way, I can tell you all in confidence that the gown was free!  I know, what a terrible snob I am.  Tiffany Designs put this fun dress out free for everyone at their landing point – just click on the vendor, no need to join a group.  I know!  What will they think of next?

A Touch of Crystal Magic

A Touch of Crystal Magic
It’s that time of the year for one of my favourite events!  The Crystal Heart Festival is here – complete with magic, sparkles, and about 40 million Sailor Moon references.  It’s always an exciting event to wander around, because there are loads of pretty creations to drool over.  If you’re not in the mood to spend any Lindens though, I’ve got some great news – plenty of freebies to be had!

Space Girl

Everything kawaii, sweet and sparkly is what really attracts me to The Crystal Heart Festival year after year, but I also do have a special place in my heart for Sailor Moon since it was such a big thing when I was in High School.  You’d often find me singing “Fighting Evil by Moonlight…” while wondering exactly why the girls were always dressed as sailors.  Anyway, you don’t need to join a group to pick up the lovely free gifts at The Crystal Heart Festival, just click on the little pink heart-shaped boxes at the stalls (most will have one, but not all) and then revel in the cuteness within.  Here’s what I’ve got on!

  • FREE Hair by Love in 12 fantasy colours and an RGB input HUD
  • FREE Skirt by Loki sized for Maitreya bodies
  • FREE floating animated orb by Petrichor (it’s soooo mesmerizing)
  • FREE shoes by Exia sized for Maitreya and Legacy

The Crystal Heart Festival just opened, so it’s quite busy at the moment.  If you can’t get in right away, don’t despair – it’s running until August 27th

Have fun!

1001 Nights

Dance of the Elephant

Mirage Treasure Co. is one of my very favorite stores.  I love all the exotic, Arabian, Moroccan, Eastern Indian, etc. décor.  I love the clothes too, it’s something I used to make a lot of in my shop, Shanti.

In my latest visit to Mirage, I decided to delve a bit into their group and free group gifts.  The group costs 100L to join, but there is an entire underground cave with hidden goodies, both décor and clothing for you to find.  There are also lucky chairs with some absolutely stunning prizes!  That’s what I am showing you today.

The dress I am wearing above (don’t you just *love* those colors!!) is one of the outfits you can get on the group lucky chairs (did I mention they also have outfits for the guys too!), it also comes with a gorgeous head jewel.  It fits:

  • Belleza
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The furniture below is just a handful of gorgeous furniture and items for your home that you can get on the lucky chairs.  The couch and chairs are color change, so they are great to mix and match!  If you are looking for an exotic atmosphere for your home, look no further than Mirage Treasure Co.

Coming soon

So, much of my life I’ve been kind of a hippie girl, ok a very hippie girl, I’m always barefoot, don’t wear much makeup, love long skirts and floppy hats and I am even wearing tie dye as I type this!  (in real life!)  So naturally I was excited to discover that there was a 60’s event going on, and had to check it out!

When you arrive there, you will discover a brightly colored fun themed area.  There are booths and shops of goodies and there is a treasure hunt happening.  There is no group needed, you just walk around and grab up all the free gift boxes (some might ask you for 1L but they give it right back).  A couple of them will ask you a 60’s trivia question to get the prize (those seem to be the ones in the bushes) but it is all good fun!

This event runs until August 15, so you have time to browse, treasure hunt and have lots of fun!

One of the goodies I got from the treasure hunt is this cute outfit from The Vale.  It fits only Maitreya, but I absolutely love the detailing on it.

Cre blogged about this event too and you can see what she found here.

Happy weekend!

Heya Fab Peeps!  A bit of FabFree news today (and of course a freebie!).  We’ve moved the FabFree Info Hub to a new location on mainland, through the generosity of FabFree reader (and longtime friend) Eesoov Elan.  When she had an extra slice of land, she decided that donating it to the Fab Fam was something she wanted to do, and for that we’re all rather grateful.  You’re always welcome to come hang out, get information, and just soak up the general FabFree-ness.  A huge shoutout to the lovely Arielle who went all out with her decorating, creating a lovely cozy space for us all.  Also, a huge shoutout to Bunnie Francis who has hosted the Info Hub for the last year – we love you Buns!  Alright Fab readers, come hang with us!

Now to the Freebies

There’s a new free group gift over at Reed – this pretty, and rather fluttery and summery dress in several different textures that can be changed through the HUD.  Just join the free group, and click on the vendor!  You’ll also find a whole bunch of other free group gifts while you’re at it.

Daydream

Daydream

Hey Fab Crew! Welcome to the start of the weekend at last! Now I know weekends are awesome but you know what makes them even more awesome?  Discovering a New-To-Me designer! I stumbled upon Blackbird Lace today and I couldn’t be happier. Such nice designs and really beautiful builds. What more could you ask for? How about nine lucky boards/chairs AND a wall full of current and past Group Gifts?  I hope you said yes because that’s what we got here!

I picked out this sweet full outfit set, “Adley” from the past group gifts to show you today because it pinged all the Summer feels. I love the bright happy print and blue and yellow are so classic together. Plus you really do get the full set – the mini dress, the heels and the cute bag! Perfect for a Summer stroll.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Pink Drink

Pink Drink
I have this thing that I often order the most ridiculous drink on the menu.  I don’t mean that it’s a complicated drink, I just mean that it’s one of those things that people look at while you drink it and exclaim “what’s that?!”  which eventually is followed by “is it good?”.  And to that, I inevitably say “Venti strawberry açai refresher with light ice… and yes…it is!”

Feeling Sassy

Time for a new group gift from Sass!  This cute perfect for the beach top and bottoms just screams sunny shores to me.  You can wear the top and bottom separately, and I think the top would look super cute with a pair of jeans too.  To get yours, join the Sass group for 10L then pay the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  There’s a whole wall of monthly group gifts, so don’t miss out on those either!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Enjoy!

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day

It’s a very drab dreary day here in the Real world today. Everything is rainy and drizzly so I need some sun! Even if it’s “just” my newest little summer sundress. 

This is the “Karen Dress” from Dreams and isn’t it a lovely sunshine yellow!? The crocheted look is so delicately done and shows off just enough without reveling too many secrets. But you might want to find some pretty sunny yellow panties to wear with it, if you catch my drift. 😉 Plus, if yellow isn’t your thing, the included HUD will let you pick one of twelve other summery colors.

Karen is the current gift up for the Teleport HUB group over at Dreams. Just wear your tag and slap that board! The Teleport HUB Group is a measly little 10L to join and then you get access to hundreds of great free gifts all over the Grid. Oh, and while you’re there, be sure to pick up the FabFree Group gift for free as well!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

I Gacha Good

I Gacha Good
Gachas.  You love them or you hate them.  Or you have a love hate relationship with them, that leans rather often towards the love, but then veers off in the hate direction rather abruptly so that you stomp off in frustration in your 6 inch heels while muttering to yourself about evil machines.  It’s not like I’m speaking from experience, I swear!

But My Fave!

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Amitomo is a gacha that I never regret playing, and I rarely miss playing one of their new releases.  They consistently put out cute, well-constructed and wildly affordable gachas that never leave me with that gacha player’s remorse.  Their latest set is out at Kustom9 and is just 69L per pull.  You’ll totally walk away with something you can wear, as usual with their offerings.  I played 4 times and managed to get this shirt, the skirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) the cute bubble gum and even the little butterfly belt.  Not bad!  Also, often if I don’t win one of the items I really need in my life, I’ll nip into Marketplace and search for the gacha, and once you sift through the super overpriced ones, you can find some good deals.  It pays to look on MP!

This round of Kustom9 is running until August 10th!

Good Luck!

Live Your Dream

Hey gang!

Back today to show you this gorgeously adorbs dress from Mangula!  You might have seen this on the blog already because it is a new Fab Free Group Gift!  I fell in love with it when I saw it and I just knew I had to blog it.  Just wear your fab free group tag (the group is free to join, of course!) and scoop this baby up!  I am usually a fan of the bright colors or pastels, but this earth tone just had such a softness to it, I fell in love.  Also, it can be worn with or without the sleeves.

This cute dress fits:

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky

You can see all of our Fab Free group Gifts on the group gift page.  It’s a great place to find awesome freebies!
