Through the Woods this Black Friday

Into the woods

Sn@tch up your fishing rods folks, the tides are coming in again!

I was just talking to Kathryn the other day about the fishing prizes at Sn@tch and she commented on what an avid angler I’ve become. It really isn’t hard to get hooked (ha ha) on fishing for prizes as Sn@tch changes out its prize outfits on the regular and they never fail to contain a wide variety of clothing pieces so that you can play around with different looks. Not only that but accessories, makeup and footwear are often thrown into the mix that you can wear with other items in your inventory. The latest Fish 4 This outfit is called Through the Woods and generously contains;

  • Five system snowpants in plum, red, green (pictured), teal and white
  • Snowpants mesh cuffs
  • Two system turtleneck sweaters in grey (pictured) and black
  • Five mesh tops in army (pictured), black, plum, red and teal
  • Mesh Fur Coat
  • Ankle boots
  • Though the Woods makeup tattoo layer in plum (not pictured)

If you have a mesh body or head never fear as you can catch the Omega applier for all the system and tattoo layer parts of the outfit from the prize filled waters. The mesh tops and fur coat come in both come in five standard mesh sizing (XS-XL) with an added fitmesh size for the fur coat and respective alpha layers to help with the fitting. Speaking of alpha layers, one is included for the ankle boots as well and you don’t need to have mesh fit to be able to slide these beauties on. Whew! That’s a ton of detail but I had a lot of fun figuring out the color combinations and there are already a few dresses that I have in mind that would go wonderfully with those boots. Fishing at Sn@tch is completely free but you do need to purchase a basic fishing rod for 100L to get in on the fun. Rods are available on the marketplace or at the Sn@tch store. It’s a great investment as you’ll get a lot of mileage on these outfits so to speak and since it’s Sn@tch, it’s top quality!

Into the woods (bonus)

While I was there…

Alright, alright I’ll admit that fishing is not all I do when I’m at Sn@tch. If you’ve been to the store you can’t really fault me for that as there are a lot of great outfits lining the walls. What’s more that are lucky boards to stalk and riot vendors to keep your eyes on so I had great fun multitasking and packing my wardrobe with great clothes from Sn@tch. The gown pictured above is new on their riot vendors and something that I just had to share. I got it for 55L as the store was pretty packed that day and when I opened the package up, I was floored by the options. First of all, you’ll get this glittery and flowing floor length skirt in five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL). Secondly, the strappy and backless top comes in eight different colors and five standard mesh sizes as well (XS-XL). Thirdly, there are also two different alpha layers included in the package to play around with. The subtle dusting of glitter on the skirt and the rhinestones that line the neckline of the top add a glamorous air to the whole outfit. Not only do I intend to wear this for upcoming parties this Chrismas but it’s also given ideas on a new blog segment as well (hmmm). Bring a friend or ten to Sn@tch today and pull those prices down, down, down to get the Gala Sparkling Brocade Gown into your inventory as well.

So you may have noticed…

So you may have noticed that I’m wearing a different hairstyle in each picture. That’s because of Black Friday and the insane number of sales that are going on right now. The offers that I’m about to list down are time sensitive as they end today but there’s nothing like a bit of rushing to get that adrenaline pumping I’d like to say. In the top three pictures, I’m wearing hairstyles from Doe that is having a 50% off sale for all of its Gachas. Playing a Gacha from this store has always been a staple for me at Gacha events so I was over the moon excited. Doe always has the cutest hairstyles and their colors are always so vibrant.

In the bottom two pictures, I’m wearing hairstyles from Besom. The store is marking down its hair packs to 75L and I took the opportunity to fill up the gaps in my Besom hair collection. I’ve always been a fan of the wonderful texturing of Besom hairstyles and their styles have an urban flavor to it yet still look so elegant. Hurry down to both stores to take advantage of these great deals maybe we’ll bump into each other as I’m certainly making the trip back.

7 Deadly s{K}ins is going to be having free group join starting from the 28th of November! I can’t say enough how much I love the skins from this merchant and they always have such great perks for their group members. Not only are there regular monthly group gifts, there are also Midnight Mania and Mini Mania boards as well as Lucky Chairs. While browsing through their Black Friday Sale (60% off CasperVend items!) I managed to claim the Libra skin for myself. I’m been eyeing this skin set for so long that I was jumping for joy to see that my letter was up. Luckily I didn’t hit the ‘discard’ button in my excitement so now I’ll be able to tell you all about the Libra skin set! In the package, you’ll receive the Libra classic skin with cleavage/no cleavage options in five different tones (Pineapple tone pictured) as well as appliers for Slink hands and feet, Tango boob, and Phat Azz. What I thought was special about this skin package was that a version of this skin in Gothic makeup is included as well. The Gothic skins come in the same five tones as well as cleavage/no cleavage options. You’ll get twenty skins in one pack as a lucky chair prize, how mind-blowing is that? Mark your calenders for the 28th and wait patiently…

You might also want to…

Check out Elephante poses. The store is having a Black Friday and Retirement sale with the entire store excluding collabs and new releases being marked down to 50% off. The older stock is being marked down to 75% off so be sure to look for purple and white tagged items for more discounts. I really love using the poses here as they’re very fluid so come and take advantage of the sales before it ends on the 27th of this month.

And that’s a wrap for today. I’ve gotta dive back into those Black Friday sales. Maybe I can even claw my way to the one at Truth….

What Can You Buy With 10 Little Lindens?

Snapshot_001Well hello there Fabulouses!  I’m giving you call to let you know about a sweet 10L offer I found on marketplace that I thought you might like!  Sometimes these dollarbies and inexpensive finds are actually more of a deal than when you have to join a new group with a fee to obtain a gift, so we like to show them off here on FabFree too!

What can you buy with 10 little lindens?

10L goes a long way at the N-Uno Marketplace store!  There you will find the mesh Shirt Dress as shown in my photo available for 10L.  I am showing off the denim blue shade, but it is also available in four other colours which you can find [HERE], as well as a free demo in case you’d like to try it first.  Sizes included are mesh XXS-L as well as an alpha for those that require use of it.

Have fun shopping!

ps.  If you missed my post from the other day, they also have a gorgeous dress available for 1L! [Blogged HERE]

Want A Shot At A Lucky Empire?

Snapshot_001
Good evening Fabulouses!  I’m stopping in real quick tonight to share news about a couple of things I found that I thought were great deals and as a bonus, they look marvelous together!  My outfit today consists of a group lucky board prize at Empire and a 1L dollarbie find in the N-Uno Marketplace store.  I’ll tell you more about them below:

About the sexy harnessed dress

The very pretty Shot Dress as shown in my photo can be found in the N-Uno marketplace store for just 1L.  I am displaying the beige colour, but if you investigate further into their listings, you’ll see that you can pick it up in three colours at 1L each.

  1. Beige
  2. Yellow
  3. Peach

In the folder you’ll find mesh sizes XXS-L.  Normally I am a mesh size S, but I bumped up to a M in this dress.  You might want to try a size larger if you are having trouble squeezing in like I was.  An alpha layer is included for those that require it.

A fatpack of caged sandal boots?  Yes please!

I am in love with Empire‘s Primula design!  I am not sure if you would call this a boot or a sandal, but  I am going to go with “caged sandal boots”!  If you are an inworld group member of the Empire paid group (499L to join) you can stalk the three group lucky boards available only to members that contain fatpacks of some really great footwear.  Primula is just the one that I was lucky enough to see an “L” on so far!  I’ll be stalking for the others soon.  Don’t forget when you join this group you gain a whole year’s worth of VIP gifts too!  You can see some of them that have been blogged on FabFree below:

On A Cool Night

Snapshot_003Good evening Fabulouses!  Tonight I am popping by to share news about a sweet marketplace deal I came across today.  Normally I like to feature items that I have found for free or as group gifts, but sometimes I just come across a good deal that is too good to pass up.  Additionally, sometimes these affordable finds are lower than a group join fee!

For just 44 little lindens, you can pick up the American Girl Outfit by Marine Rose that incudes the entire ensemble you see me wearing including the boots!  With your purchase, you’ll receive the dress, jacket and scarf (which are one piece), the bracelet, boots and even a pair of sunglasses that I am not wearing (since it’s night, and my future is just not that bright).  Honestly the whole outfit is great… but even if it were just the boots I would be sending you go to get it.  These are boots you’ll see me wearing again and again.  Make sure you have a look around in the marketplace store because they have quite a few full outfits that are priced cost effectively.

Happy Days

Coming soon to FabFree

When I heard Les Fees Endormies had a set of 5 retro style dresses for only 10L each, I ran over there so fast I left skid marks!  These lovely tidbits come in mesh sizes for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza.  This picture is shown on the Maitreya body, but I also tried these dresses on a variety of original body shapes with great success.

Coming soon to FabFree

7 Deadly skins offers monthly group gifts on top of a wall full of mini and midnight manias.  I slapped the mystery surprise midnight mania and was gifted with this beautiful, lightly freckled set of OMEGA head appliers in the skin tone of oak.  Natural and rich tones, with a hint of eye makeup makes this a skin I could wear every day.

~All the things!~

Location – 50s Housewife Clubhouse Community

It’s Mushy Feet Season

Snapshot_002
Good morning FabFree! Don’t mind my pouty face today… I’m just mourning the loss of sandal season! I call this time of year the “mushy feet season” because it’s when all the ladies are still trying to get away with the sandals they love so much, but there are puddles… EVERYWHERE.  I imagine there are a lot of feelings that are  much worse than the sensation of cold wet street water seeping into your shoes onto your bare feet, but it’s right up there.

Enough of my complaining…onto the news!  I did a little shopping last night inworld and found that Siss Boom has a ton of really cute things on sale this week for 55L – 60L in their events section.  I purchased the Anex Geo Dress that I am wearing today because I was in love with the texture and colours.  The dress and bolero are one piece and it comes in plenty of fitmesh sizes for system bodies and mesh bodies too.  At 55L this dress was a steal.

In  my last couple of posts, I have been showing off free fatpacks of hair that are available in the Lakewood Haven Hunt by Pr!tty, and today is another one!  This medium to long hairstyle tucked behind my ears is called Brook and you can hunt for it too!  This hunt only lasts for 2 more days, so act quickly.

An Apple A Day…

Snapshot_012Well hi there Fabulouses!  I am just taking a little break from apple picking to stop by and share a little MOoH! news.  I am really hoping that the previous posts on Fabulously Free in SL such as [THIS ONE] or [THIS ONE], have inspired you to join the MOoH! inworld group and that you stayed in it because it’s a new month… and with that there is a new MOoH! group gift and another 150L instore credit voucher to pick up!  Since I joined about half a year ago there have been generous group gifts, a 150L MOoH! gift card and a raffle to enter each month!

The Cassie Dress that I am wearing today is the group gift for October.  This gift includes a texture change HUD that allowed for six different colour options as shown in the vendor ad below!

I should also mention my pose today because it’s also under our 75L limit, priced at 50L for the whole Apple Basket Autumn Promo Pose Set that includes 5 poses and different apple props.  You can find this in the Raindale marketplace store.

My Second Life closet seems to have taken a leaf or three out of the pages of my first. It’s laughably messy for one thing, and for another, it’s slowly being conquered by t-shirts. Solid colored ones, ones with slogans or symbols or band logos…I find them difficult to resist and this was most certainly true with the t-shirt pictured. It’s perky purple and pink tie and dye design is simple but eye catching and needless to say I fell in love with it as soon as I stepped into the retirement sale room at Imbue. At 50L I felt that it was a steal but if you’re not as big a t-shirt fan as I am there are other clothing items at the sale for you to peruse. The shirt comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS – L) and has a very good alpha layer. While you’re there and if it strikes your fancy join the Imbue group for 50L and slap the Midnight Mania board or try your luck on the Letters. Oh and don’t forget to pick up the group gifts, one of which has been blogged by Prudence {HERE}

As the pattern on the shirt reminded me of galaxies I quickly paired it up with another closet staple of mine, the skater skirt. The one above comes from Mag<3 B‘s Marketplace store and will cost you only 5L. It comes in five standard mesh sizes (XS -XL) as well as sizes specific to Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya bodies. The light and airy textures are wonderful and not only that it has a subtle dusting of glitter over it which I thought tied in nicely with the shirt.

Up next are the garter socks from Sn@tch and boots from Baby Monkey. These two stores were some of the very first I’ve stepped into in my first few days of Second Life and I’ve come back time and again because of their quality products and generous designers. The Shannon garter socks pack contains thirteen different colors of system layered socks as well as Omega and Slink applier HUDs. It’s currently in one of Sn@tch‘s riot vendors and I got my copy at 63L. If you’re planning on getting these bring a friend or seven. Sn@tch has six riot vendors and you can try to see just how low you can bring them. When you’re done hop by to Baby Monkey to pick up these boots. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee and past group gifts like those cute boots above cost 10L each.

The skin I’m wearing is 7 Deadly s{K}ins‘ latest group gift called Klaasje. I love the subtle makeup on the skin as well as the fact that this month’s gift was really very generous. Two system skins in the tone Caramel, Lelutka and Catwa mesh face applier, shape and eyebrow shape along with a style card. 7 Deadly s{K}ins has a group fee of 150L but the Klaasje skin and all past group gifts will be available to you for free this month so it’s most certainly worth it. To get a look at the male group gift by 7 Deadly s{K}ins it’s been blogged {HERE} by Loki.

To top it off is the Lyra hair from Alice Project that you can get for free by slapping their midnight mania board. There’s no group join required so this beautifully feathered style is just a click away. If colored hair is not to your taste the Lyra hair comes with a hud mishmash of fifteen different colors and I hope you find one that fits you perfectly. I did!
