Vintage? Or New Age?

New Age_001

Vintage… or New Age?

The Vintage Gacha Fair is open until March 19th and you can visit it to pick up old Gachas for 30L a spin, plus there is a free gift at every booth! I picked up two gifts that inspired me to put together a creative look and I can’t decide if its vintage flapper or new age woman… but I love it none the less!

My arm bands, choker, and headband were free at the Vintage Gacha Fair courtesy of Sweet Kajira, and when I put them on they fit like a dream and I knew I needed to find something to match. I was pleasantly surprised when I ran across another gift at the Fair that stole my heart… or rather my eye.

If you stop by the BlackPearls booth, also at the Vintage Gacha Fair and nab their free gift, you’ll get the headdress with eye-patch that fit just perfectly over the top of my Sweet Kajira headband. I only had to edit it just a tiny bit to pull it out from my hair so my hair didn’t poke through. And the two were a match!

Off to find a dress…

I knew that I needed the perfect outfit… or in this case – dress – to go with my outstanding accessories. Black Rose didn’t let me down. They have set out their March group gift and it is beautiful. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. When I paired it with my Vintage Gacha fair finds, I couldn’t decide if my look was Vintage Flapper Woman or New Age Gal, but I loved it anyway!

Sizes included for the dress:

  • Classic mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Feeling Mouthy!

Mouthy_001

Sometimes you feel… mouthy.

Today I feel a bit mouthy. You know, sometimes you just have to get it ALL out there in the open and tell it like it is. There’s no stopping you and then… of course later you know you’re going to pay for it… but luckily I found this great top that can just be mouthy for me!

Stopping by Ashmoot!

So I stopped by Ashmoot where I was able to pick up two great gifts and it didn’t cost me a single Linden!

First I picked up this terrific sweater (the one that made me feel so mouthy 😉 ). It’s Ashmoot‘s FREE FabFree Group Gift offering. Just wear your FabFree Group tag and pick this gorgeous mesh sweater up. It comes in all the standard sizes and includes an alpha layer as well.

I also picked up the matching shorts! These are applier shorts and you can get them by wearing the Ashmoot group tag. The Ashmoot group is also FREE to join, making this gift FREE as well. You’ll get appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega as well as a couple of system layers as well!

Just be careful not to let your mouth run away with you while wearing this great outfit 😉

Hi there FabFree! I’m just taking the time to enjoy my last day off before I have to go back to work tomorrow…  at least I am trying to.  I just want to read through the entertainment section of The Second Life Times, and my furball is not co-operating.  He’d rather jump around and force me into a game of stick fetch.   While I am here, I thought I would tell you about a really cute dollarbie that I came across on the Marketplace!  Actually, you can pick it up as a free group gift inworld too, if you happen to have the group space.  The group is free to join.

For Just 1 Little Linden…

You can pick up the Flowers Embroidered Dress in both white and black in the Insomnia Store marketplace store, or you can head to the mainstore inworld and join their free group to obtain it as a free group gift.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh w/ alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

There are more dollarbies available in the marketplace store, and more group gifts available for pick-up inworld!  Have a great day, I’m off to play fetch!

Remembering Pool Halls

Pool Shark

It’s been a while.

It’s been a while since I played pool. I miss those days. There isn’t a pool hall in my little town, and I’d have to drive a long distance to find one now. The atmosphere has changed as well. Pool tables are something you find only in bars where I live. When I was in college you could go to pool halls just to play pool, and they were places that were fairly neutral and welcome to all sorts of people.

I found Warehouse 999 and it made me remember a bit of the old days of pool halls. It’s a club that caters to both military (and non military) music lovers, with a pool table in the background. There’s a lot of quaint memorabilia up and if you like the blues, stop by for a listen.

Grabbing the right outfit.

FA Creations has out a great free December group gift… this Yuki outfit. The jacket includes a texture change hud with 6 possible choices and the outfit is made for both standard or mesh bodies. You’ll get the pants as well as the top and jacket as separates.

In the gift you’ll get sizes to fit:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Top it off.

I needed a finishing touch and found just what I was looking for in the Women Only Hunt 2. I picked up this free mesh rigged metal choker in gold at Secrets. This choker is pretty special in that it doesn’t clip. The mesh rigging lets it move with your neck so there is no issue of it cutting out the side of your neck with your avatar’s ao. I really like that. Plus its really stylish. Perfect for playing pool.

Inside My Skull

Inside My Skull (Shirt)

Gotta Love Events…

Kathryn pointed me toward the Boho Culture Fair, and said that there were gifts to be had. These events are always a fantastic place to pick up gifts, but sometimes it can be hard to find items for us menfolk at them. I was pleasantly surprised when she pointed me in the direction of the Trashed booth, which had out a gift for both women AND men.

You’re Not the Costume Type?

Personally I love the Fall season as well as Halloween, but dressing up in a costume is just not on my agenda. So when I saw the 1L gift from Trashed for men, I was really thrilled. Trashed has out this skull decorated shirt. It is one piece mesh but has the appearance of being a long sleeve white t-shirt with a short sleeve black t-shirt overlay. The great thing about it is that it you’ll be able to wear it after Halloween too, since it could easily pass as “Biker” or “Gothic” with no problem.

Don’t Miss Out!

You’ll want to pick up this gift from Trashed (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes it’s own alpha layer) before November 4th. That’s when the Boho Culture Fair ends. While you’re there, be sure to check out the other booths, there are lots of gifts and goodies to be had from many outstanding designers!

Emerald Couture is one of those that has their stuff out for you to peruse, and I was thrilled to pick up this fantastic leather jacket/shirt combo in the picture above for only 10L.

The one piece item comes in two fitmesh sizes as well as all the standard mesh sizes. There are also two other nicely made men’s shirts on the cart. Ladies there are several nice items there for you to check out as well. Don’t be afraid to get to the Cart Wash Sale early and check out these great items before the crowds tomorrow!

A Gypsy’s Tale

A Gypsy's Tale

Hello FabFree! I’m back again today with a few more goodies! I wanted to show you a lucky letter prize I picked up at PoshTale. I really love PoshTale clothing. It’s wonderfully versatile… working well as either modern attire or as roleplay outfits. My top is a perfect example. This Kasai Fringe Top is a FREE lucky letter board prize at PoshTale right now and would work well for either genre. No group is required, just some luck!

This is an applier top and includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega. You also get two color huds for each. The plain and patterned hud each offer 8 color choices, for a total of 16 different tops with this one applier. If this top doesn’t suit you, there are 3 other lucky letter boards currently at PoshTale for you to try your luck at.

My hair is a FREE SLB13 gift from Hairology. We’ve been showing you lots of pretty hair gifts from Hairology… this one is called “Unity” by Damselfly, and like all the other SLB13 gifts won’t cost you a single Linden. It comes in two sizes (one is to fit larger busts) and is a full fatpack of colors.

A Gypsy's Tale 2

A part of me has always been a bit of a Gypsy at heart… and perhaps that is why I love this gift from Cellar Door so much. I picked it up as part of the SLB13 celebrations at We ❤ RP and it is yours FREE once you go to the Cellar Door booth there and click the cake and get your slice for your FREE gift. The box includes the necklace I am showing you, which is the rose gold color, as well as the necklace in black, bronze, gold, and silver.

I also picked up the Kunglers SLB13 gift while I was at We ❤ RP. It is a really elaborate and beautiful pair of earrings called Eliza Leaf. They are shaped like leaves and are embedded with small opals and have rose quartz wired to the tops of the metal leaves. They are really beautiful. This is a FREE gift that you won’t want to miss.

If you are a photographer in Second life and you liked my poses for this post, consider stopping by the Cart Wash Sale where you can pick up several very nice poses. My poses are by Picture Perfect. The Cart has single poses, couple poses, and even a group pose… all for only 10L each!

Oki Aquarius

Oki Aquarius

The Runway Perfect Hunt ends May 31st, so there is still some time for hunters to make some last minute stops before this hunt is over. If you stop by Prism Designs, they are offering two gifts for this 5L Hunt — one for the ladies and one for the gents. In the picture above I’m showing you the men’s gift… the Oki Jacket and Oki Shorts.

This outfit will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time, and you’ll get all the standard mesh sizes. It’s worth adding to your wardrobe for casual wear.

I also wanted to show you another pretty hunt item from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt XV. I stopped by Acios along the Blessing Path and picked up the FREE hunt gift… this dainty necklace with its healer symbol on a blue disk. This would be perfect for someone who roleplayed a healer in a medieval roleplay sim. Acios is also giving away a Curse path gift FREE as well, which is equally nice… another necklace in a fiery red. It too is well worth hunting for!

Enjoy the rest of your evening!

Garden Swank

Garden Swank

I managed to beat Astrid to the Swank Event! And scored a great FREE men’s gift in the process. This really amazing Baka Jacket for men (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes) by Bakaboo is a FREE gift (no group required) at the current round of Swank. Several designers are giving gifts at their booths for both guys and gals, so this event is well worth visiting.

I’m sure Astrid will want to head there later now that I’ve broken the ice…

Don’t be shy… go get your Swank on!
