Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

Just Another “Dorky” Couples Christmas Card Pose

11-29-2017

Dorky is as Dorky Does…

I found this pose, “Merry Christmas” by Little Piggy, on the Marketplace for just 1L and I thought to myself that it would be a cute pose for my personal Christmas card. Yes, it is a couple’s pose, but I made it work for myself (and my snowman buddy, of course). She happened to see it and said “You should blog that. Everyone will be looking for a “dorky” couple’s Christmas card pose.” (Please note, that was her words, not mine). So she proceeds to hop on the other pose, changes her clothes to a more winter appropriate attire and waits for me to take the photograph. For it being a “dorky” pose, she was in a hurry to get in on the action….

What’s In Your SL Wallet?

NunoHey FabFree! It’s time to check under those couch cushions and scrape up some all the little lindens you can find because N-Uno has some big sales going on in their Marketplace Store, and when I say sales…  I don’t mean 100L, or 75L or even 50L…  I MEAN 1L!

ENTIRE FATPACKS FOR 1L!

Infact almost everything is priced at 1L so you can shop for hours on a handful of change!  The best way to make your lindens go farther is to skip the single outfits first and go straight for the fatpacks, and then go back to the main marketplace link for other single items that are not sold in fatpacks.  Below you will find first a link to the marketplace store, and then below it you will find a link to just the fatpack items, so you can easily skip over the singles and get more bang for your buck.  Again..  make sure you check out the whole store though – as some items are only sold in singles.

Mama Mia, What A Deal!

In my photo above, you will find me wearing three items from the N-Uno Marketplace store that I picked up for 1L each in full fatpacks.  The Mia Bodysuit, Skirt and Jacket (animated to keep your arms in!) all come in five standard mesh sizes with alpha layers.  Their vendor ad is shown below to give you an idea of fabric textures included.

Not Ready for Cold Weather

I wear short skirts_001

Not ready for cold weather…

I’m not ready for cold weather. It got nippy here where I live and then the weather warmed up yesterday and it prompted me to look for warmer clothes in Second Life too. So I was really pleased when I saw that Kom‘s November group gift was this really pretty (and versatile) short skirt. It comes in all your favorite body sizes and includes a color change hud with 7 colors to choose from as well. I was partial to this teal color which I paired with a blueberry gift top that I blogged a while back that you can now get on the marketplace for just 1L.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something pretty

I wanted a little something extra to go with my outfit so I stopped by The Forge to see what was available. Sometimes in-store gachas hold sweet surprises. I discovered the Boadicea’s Necklaces and really liked the celtic look and fine detailing on them. I gave the 50L gacha a spin and pulled one of the commons in “rust” which matched my outfit very nicely. The rares were quite beautiful as well and would be worth a few extra pulls to try to nab one at just 50L per spin.

Fringe Benefits

FlowersMP1L
Happy Sunday Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend :).  When I was working on my last post with the sweet dollarbie marketplace find, I came across another 1L top and jacket combination that I couldn’t wait to tell you about.

On The Fringe

The cropped suede fringe jackets of my youth appear to be making a comeback.  I had one, most of us girls did.  That special suede jacket that spent an entire cheque of earnings at your $4 an hour paying afterschool job and only came out on the weekend, probably once or twice because you didn’t buy that $20 can of leather protector, spilled “party beverages” on it, and then had no money left for dry-cleaning.  This happened so much, that in a similar fashion it was part of the story line in the movie “Can’t Buy Me Love”.

Anyways…  in Second Life you don’t need to worry about all of that!  You can buy this baby for 1L in the Flower marketplace store (even comes with the floral top!), and wear it over and over!

Flower Beige Jacket With Top Sizes Included:

  •  XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Venus

Falling Down

Falling Down_001

The leaves have turned their colors in my neighborhood and are rapidly falling down from the trees. The Marketplace Leaves hunt gift that I discovered reminded me of that… and the butterfly on the front seems to give it a last of late summer touch that makes it softly melancholy but also very pretty.

The gift… just 10L

The Marketplace Leaves Hunt is a hunt on the marketplace. You can click here for more information. The gift from Miss Jewell is the Lyle outfit. It includes a mesh top in standard sizes, jewelry, system layer pants, a prim skirt, and system layer stockings. I opted to only wear the mesh top as I have a mesh body and for just 10L, the beautiful mesh top was the item I fell in love with. I added accessories that were already in my inventory and came up with an outfit that I really liked. I bet you can do the same!

Happy falling leaves to you as autumn progresses!

Get Moving!

BelleEGGThey say “Home is where the heart is”, but which one of these boxes did I pack it in??

Hey there Fabulouses! One of the many cool things about Second Life is that you can pick up your entire home at the drop of a hat and go from a beach bungalow to a mountain chalet or New York studio, or where ever your heart desires…  Even a tree house or a cave if you like!  You don’t even have to change locations if you don’t want to, you can just pick it all up, and put something new down.  If only it was that easy in real life!

Enough Babbling Love, What ARE You Wearing?

My casual fall outfit today was put together with a couple of new goodies I came across this week – which was perfect timing, because they look great together!

You can pick up the LFE Leonie Sweater I am wearing today for just 10L in several mesh body sizes on the marketplace, and in fact…  if you do a little browsing through their marketplace listings, you’ll find that you can pick up the same sweater in several prints for just 10L each.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

What goes better with a cozy sweater than some fuzzy warm boots?

Not much, and you can find the Mina Boots as a free group gift at Belle Epoque with a 10L join fee.  These boots will fit any kind of mesh avatar using their alpha huds and may work with the system body too if you happen to have the right alpha layer already in your inventory (alpha layer not incuded).  You will not only find the gorgeous brown colour I am wearing, but all of the following colours in your gift folder!

Boot Colours:

  • Black
  • Brown
  • Coffee
  • Navy
  • Olive
  • Wine

The Hero Inside

Closed for Business Open for Hero...ing

It was a dark and dangerous alley and all the stores were closed for business… but I had work to do… hero-ing it up and all.

A Dirty Little Secret

It all began with a hunt at Eclectic Stars. The Dirty Little Secrets Hunt to be exact. It has two paths… a 50L hunt path and a 1L hunt path. I stumbled upon the 1L hunt path by chance and ended up with a super hero batman studded blindfold for just 1L at Eclectic Stars. All you have to do is hunt down the little black key with it’s red ribbon. (There’s also a Golden Lasso blindfold in the box.) I knew it was time to find the super hero inside!

The Hero Inside

That led me to the marketplace in search of the perfect shirt. Inodoro provided and for just 5L! I got this batman t-shirt, perfect for every day hero wear, and in the most popular mesh body sizes. The package includes sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. For 5L, it was a steal… errr… deal.

Happy hero-ing!
