For the Love of Flowers!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

I am a big fan of floral clothing. This is the time of year when all the floral patterns start to pop up in the stores and nothing makes me happier!

Annie

This lovely bun is the latest group gift at Mina. The hairstyle comes with options to add and remove the bangs, and to attach and remove the done-up bun at the back. It’s a lovely hairstyle! The Mina VIP group costs 200L to join.

The Dress of Many Patterns!

This dress I have on has many different floral and spring patterns, and it only costs 1 L on the Hop Along Hunt 4. You can pick this hunt prize up at Ari-Pari. The hint to find the prize is: “find where the waterfalls are underneath the vines of ivy.” I love how the petals fall on this pattern of the dress- they look like they are alive because the texture is so realistic. All other photos of prizes and hints for the Hop Along Hunt 4 can be found here.

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

[Ari-Pari] Belinda Spring Dress

Aurora

I even bought some matching floral sandals called Aurora Sandals at Pure Poison which cost only 38 L in their outlet with the free group tag active. I’ve been eyeing these sandals for a while, because you have the option to change the colour of the petals separately from the sandal straps. What a great deal this is! I have included the vendor photo below so you can see what the whole sandal looks like.

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Monday is my SUN day

Monday is my SUN day

Hey FabFree. This afternoon I am enjoying a typical north country Spring. I.E. It’s cold and rainy. Really coooold and rainy. Which of course, makes me think of the beach with it’s warm sands and gentle waves and soft breezes. That’s logical… right?! Oh well, it’s Juli logic! Plus, while I was at the Miix Event I found a super cute little free swim suit so maybe I had the beach on my mind already.

As Aline told you here, the Miix Event is full of free gifts right now. Like this awesome two piece suit from Impact. This is the “Mellisa Bikini” and it’s one of those free gifts. You get a HUD with ten colors for the shorts and fourteen colors for the top. There are so many cute patterns and colors and it all so marvelously mix and match… I had a hard time figuring out what to wear! Such a good problem to have, am I right?!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XXS – L
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

While I was wandering round picking up freebies and group gifts and all, I stopped in at Mina Hair and got a good surprise. This gorgeous hair style was up as a free gift for the Second Life Frees & Offers group. You can join the SLF&O group for free and pick this and tons of other gifts across the Grid. This style, “Alexa” comes with the “Essentials” color HUD giving you a nice range of natural colors from white to blonde to brunet to deep black.  I do love getting such great quality hair for my hair obsession. I don’t know how long this style will be offered for the SLF&O group or even how long it’s been up… but if you want to add it to your hair obsession hurry over and pick it up.

Wandering

Wandering

Hey FabFree! If you haven’t heard of “Wanderlust Weekend”, I am here to give you the big scoop. Wanderlust features really high quality shops and designers offering some of their absolute best items for just 50L. That’s less than most Gacha pulls and there’s no element of chance here. You can easily find items that would normally cost hundreds of Lindens on sale for 50L. I once picked up a piece of landscaping décor and saw it Monday back at it’s regular price of 550L! So you should really check this out!  Here on their website you can see the pictures of the items being offered and get the LMs or use the HUD that updates each Wanderlust weekend.

I had to go grab this gorgeous new hair, Molly, from Mina first thing. I love the cascade and the hint of movement in it. Mina always has such good hair! You can get Blondes, Browns, Reds, Grays and Pastels color packs, each for the special 50L price.

Next on my ‘wandering’ was one of my favorite designers: Oubliette! So of course I had to go there too. I just love this dress! This is ‘Aurora’ and you can pick from three colors, the Lavender Galaxy I’m wearing, Frost and Midnight. Each for the special price. Heck, you can buy all three colors for less than most dresses!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

So grab your HUD and get to wandering! The Wanderlust Weekend only lasts until Sunday midnight then poof, it’ll fade away.

Thunder and Silk

Thunder and Silk

There are times I kind of forget I’m of elven deca ent. I love to dressup in sweet modern fashions and jeans and tees. But sometimes, something comes along to remind me of the Fey and I just have to get away from the modern world and gallop through sunlit forests with Fiain my unicorn friend. I came across that ‘something’ from Noble Creations at the Gacha Garden Event.

The Thunder

This is the Thunder Suit Gacha from Noble Creations and it’s just 75L per play. It does sneak just barely under our limit here for FabFree but I still wanted to show y’all because this is one sweet outfit. Each piece is expertly built and a pleasure to wear. The suit comes in Black or White with four Rares and twelve commons.

Sizes Available

  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

And the silk

A little extra for our hair collectors… and aren’t we all?! Mina has set out a great new VIP Group gift for us. This Harper V2 and you can pick up the pack of blondes for free. The VIP group does cost a one time fee of 200L but , wow, is it worth it. There are tons of past gifts, the current gift plus you get a 10% discount on in-store purchases. I highly recommend it!

Book Worm

Book Worm
Hello There Fab Free! Are you feeling that holiday rush yet? I know I am! I needed to take a minute, relax, and unwind. A favorite way to do that is to find a comfy spot to sit, pick a good book to read, and sip a warm cup of tea (or coffee).  DE.Boutique recently sent out this cozy over-sized sweater dress to their Subscriber group. Also, I took a little time to pop over to Fameshed and pick up the pile of free gifts waiting under the Christmas tree. For today, I’m excited to share with you the Fameshed gifts from MINA and Contraption. Keep reading for more info about each of these fantastic finds!

The Dress – This wine colored gradient sweater dress was sent out earlier this week to the DE.Boutique Subsciber group. It is called the Zoe dress, and it comes int several mesh sizes. I do want to point out that I am unsure if new subscribers will receive the free gift of not. I did try unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the DE.Boutique Subscriber, and the gift was not redelivered. However I would still encourage anyone to stop by DE.Boutique and join their Subscriber group to be sure and receive any future gifts. Also, check your inventory, if you’re already a DE.Boutique Subscriber, you may have received it.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ebody, Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Hair – This cute puffed up side pony is the free Fameshed group gift by MINA. The Fameshed group is free to join, and you’ll need to wear the group tag to get the gifts. You’ll find a whole pile of presents under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This hairstyle from MINA comes in a “browns” color pack, but I have to say the color range is quite broad, there are very dark almost black shades, and very deep auburn red shades along side several brunettes.

The Glasses – I love these unique glasses with their rectangular lenses. They are the free Fameshed group gift by Contraption available under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from preset colors to change the color of each lens individually, as well as the frame. You will need to wear the Fameshed group tag to get the gift, however the Fameshed group is free to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Last Minute Sassy-ness

Last Minute Sassy-ness

This is SO last minute! We only have two days…well a day and a half technically… to visit the Hair Fair. That’s right, the Hair Fair will close up shop on October the 7th. That means ya gotta hurry!

Short and Sassy

I found this lovey short hair style I’m showing off at the Mina booth for free. This is Lily and it comes with two HUDs. One is a ‘Dip Dye’ color and the other is a Style HUD. You can add and remove a few extra bangs. It’s super cute with and with the bangs. Lily comes in an Unrigged version as well.

Sassy and Short

I’m also enjoying the latest Group Gift from The Beautiful Ones: the sassy tank and vest set Moa. The top and the denim vest are separates so you can get a lot of wear from just one gift. The Texture on the vest is really fantastic. Don’t you just love finding something fun, pretty AND extremely well made?!  You’ll find ‘Moa’ in your notices if you are already a member of The Beautiful Ones group. If you aren’t a member… whatcha waiting for? It’s 25Lto join but it’s so worth it.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Sweet as Pie

Sweet as Pie
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. I can’t believe the month of September has already almost passed us by. There are several September events and Hunts coming to an end. One of which is Limit8. If you haven’t picked up all the fabulous free gifts hurry and grab them before the event ends. I picked up this cute lattice style apple pie by Your Dreams. It’s one of the many free Limit8 group gifts. The Limit8 group is free to join, and I’ll add some links down below to some of the previous Fab Free posts featuring Limit8 gifts just in case you missed them.

That skillet style pie makes me think of southern style apple pies. I can almost smell the cinnamon and spices! It almost makes me want to bake one myself, almost. Instead, I’ll just let Pru pretend in her virtual kitchen. It just so happens Blacklace also put out a group gift recently. Usually I wouldn’t think of baking and lingerie together, but the cute vintage feel of this bustier and panties set got me thinking of those vintage style pinup images you often see. The Blacklace group gift comes in several sizes and has an alpha layer for classic avatars. Also included is a color change hud with 8 color choices. The hud will allow you to color the bra separately from the panties so you can mix and match. The Blacklace Lingerie group has a one time join fee of 99 linden. This group gift set can be found in the past group notices, or picked up at the main store.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

More From Limit8 which is ending soon!

This must be just like livin’ in paradise

This must be just like livin' in paradise

Apparently today is beach day here on FabFree. I woke up to both Aline and Kat enjoying the sun and sand, and here I am doing the same thing. But one can never have enough beachwear!

For my part, I’m showing off this super sexy one piece from Beautiful Dirty Rich. I’ve mentioned before how hot I think a one piece can be, and woo-wee is this one hot. I love how high the hips are cut and the back takes the word thong to a whole new level. It is BDR’s contribution to the Women Only Hunt, just head over to the store and find the hidden coconut to claim yours for free! There is a HUD to change the pattern to 6 different  colors and lots of sizes:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • 5 Classic Sizes, L-XXS

And now I’ll get back to enjoying the beach. You’ll tell me if there’s a giant wave coming, right? Taking pictures with your back to the ocean is dangerous for that reason. There’s a fine line between trying to look cute and hurrying up before a wave crashes right on top of you. The things we do for a great photo op at the beach…
