Hello and Happy Tuesday, FabFree Darlings! My find today isn’t quite free but it’s still Fabulous. While I was wandering the Spotlight Event I found this really cute mini dress:Bianca by LoveCat Store.

Liquid Love

The iridescent latex is a pale rainbow or silver depending on your windlight. I think you can see it a bit in the picture. Either way it just shimmers! The dress comes with a hood that is attached separately and comes in a hood up or hood down version. All this for just 5 little Lindens!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

The Spotlight Event only runs until September 22nd and there are tons of free and almost free gifts from many of the venders. Don’t delay if you want to glisten and glow!

Sunrise

Spotlight_001

I stopped for coffee and was writing in my journal when the wind storm blew up off the ocean and disturbed my papers. I had to set everything down and gather it all up again. Thankfully there was plenty of stuff nearby (pots, candles, a plate of cinnamon buns) to act as paperweights… but I took a moment to enjoy the sunrise glowing on the horizon before snapping a picture to share my hunt finds with you.

Dressed for success.

I’m often inspired by locations and clothing in second life. The visuals give me pause and take my breath away. I stumbled across the Summer Diaries Hunt and found several beautiful items, but one of my favorites was this Lolita Micro Dress by Soul Designs. It comes with a color change hud that allows you to choose between 6 colors including gold (shown), teal, red, navy, purple, and black.

Sizes included:

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

A sweet ocean surprise…

I received a notecard from Chop Zuey yesterday, letting me know that the creator was participating in the Flawless Sim Seashell Hunt. For just 1L I could go to the Designer Showcase, hunt down the seashell there, and come away with some pretty jewelry. I wasted no time! In the picture you can see the matching necklace and earrings, but the set also comes with two beautiful anklets that go with the set as well!

Beeeeeeeee Happy!

Beeeeee Happy

Mmmmm… a slice of watermelon in the middle of summer is just the thing! Pair it up with a cute free dress, and a great pair of sunglasses and the day can’t be beat! I put my hair up out of the way to make sure it didn’t get sticky. Let me tell you all about my look today!

This great pose!

I went to check out the Honey I Shrunk the Cart Sale and Hunt and went around and picked up as many of the hidden 2L Honey Drops as I could find. I’m showing off several of my 2L finds to you in this post! One of my favorite 2L gifts was this Watermelon Patch pose prop! It comes in two sizes. One for adults (shown) and one for kids! You’re sure to enjoy taking pictures with this terrific hunt prize!

Too cool for summer!

I love this cute butter colored dress. This cute minidress is by Crazy Pastry Designs and comes in lots of sizes.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I paired the dress with a great pair of blue “Zipper” sunglasses by Closet Full of Pancake. You can get a close-up of what these look like by clicking on the Flickr picture. One of the lenses has a “zipper” in it for a unique look!

Another Hair Fair visit.

I also couldn’t resist another visit to the Hair Fair. I knew I needed an updo to keep my hair out of the sticky yummy mess of my watermelon eating. Cheveux happily provided with their free gift! This hair gift is a mesh fatpack of colors and is cute as can be. I cam-shopped from the same spot I’ve been cam shopping from the last couple of times (I’m still finding lots of goodies there) and it was an easy to find booth. Remember to use this tip for selecting objects that are far away:

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

Happy Hunting and Hair Fair shopping!

Garden Party

Hello again, FabFree Floks. I don’t know about where y’all are but our temperature is somewhere between OMG and WTF. Yeah, it’s hot. And the best thing on a hot day? A huge glass of ice cold sweet iced tea.  If you can’t get that then some Sweet Tea might be the next best thing.

sweettea_001

This is the Summer Mini from Sweet Tea and it one of the group gifts set out for us. The group costs 50L to join but you’ll make that back right away with the eleven gifts available. This cool shorty sundress comes with a HUD with four really cute color/patterns. I picked this aqua blue because it just felt so summery. Plus, it went perfectly with the aqua and white platform sandals for SLink Flat feet from 2pm’s  Raki Ribbon Platforms gacha machine at Kustom9.  The gacha has ten commons in ice cream colors and two rares that are white soles with color HUDs for the straps.  Kustom9 runs until July 10 but don’t delay.. the date will creep up faster than you realize.

Indulging in JAVA & VG Shoes

VG Shoes

Look at me in my pinup style pose in the club like I own the place! Well let me hurry up and tell you how I got the look before the real owner finds me here. The shoes I am wearing is a group gift from VG shoes store called, Play. They have a gorgeous creamy gold color that almost compliments any other color outfit you might wear. In fact, when I was preparing for this post, I put the shoes on first and  then went through my inventory trying on different outfits until I found a complimenting match.

VG Shoes

Then an idea hit me like a bag of shoes, JAVA Fashion Designs  has a Paisley Girl Joan Mini Dress that would go perfect! So I went scrambling into my inventory, and slipped it on, confirming that the two items went together like peanut butter and jelly. Oh, and let me tell you something about JAVA. If you join the group, which is $75L fee, the designer Simone Udimo sends out at least 2-3 outfits a week. The store has a variety of non-mesh and mesh outfits at very very, did I say very, reasonable prices. The dress I have on was sent out in a group notice, and just in case its not in the notice anymore, you can find it in store for $25L.

I also want to give a thank you to Purple Moon for sending out these beautiful diamond Diva Earrings in honor of Women’s Day. Definitely added the cherry on top of the sundae for this outfit.
