Summer breeze makes me feel fine

Summer breeze makes me feel fine

Hey y’all! I fear that my favorite season might really be coming to an end. Luckily, I found the perfect little outfit to wear while I enjoy every last speck of Summer, before mean old Autumn shows up and invites his even worse pal Winter along.

Lilo

Belle Epoque has put out a new free group gift and it is seriously fabulous. All of the little details make it stand out from the crowd, like the adorable little ruffles and some really great lacing on the back of the top…and other details that I don’t know the names for because I don’t know how to fashion. But they’re really cute, see? It comes in one size, which is not labeled but which fits my Maitreya body perfectly. The Belle Epoque group is 10L to join and is it worth it? You know it! Besides this, there are a handful of other must-have gifts on the wall in the store.

Here we are now, entertain us

Here we are now, entertain us

Hi! I went a little overboard on the group gifts in this post. I was browsing through my inventory and one thing led to another and they all ended up on at the same time. I’m enjoying the vibe though, it’s very 90s punk rock and had me singing Nirvana to myself.

Versatile Dress

My dress is from Avale. It’s a really great little black dress that is a necessity in every inventory. This dress would be great dressed up but clearly it’s also very versatile because I did this kinda punk thing with it and I think it works beautifully for that too. To get the dress I just tped over to Avale, joined the free group, and clicked on the picture of a present to get my free group gift. It comes in sizes for:

  • Freya Perky
  • Hourglass
  • Isis Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

Punk Staple

I can’t believe how well made and perfect this plaid shirt is that I’m wearing tied around my waist. Coco gives out the best group gifts and if you don’t believe me just get an eyeful of the huge wall of past gifts available in the store. This newest free group gift can be snatched up as well by joining the free group and it includes sizes for Freya, HG, Isis, MT and Slink.

But first let me take a selfie

The cell phone that I’m using comes with 6 poses – 3 male and 3 female. I love a good selfie pose, don’t you? Both the phone and the poses are free group gifts for the Dubai Event VIP group. My link will take you to the group profile. Just join the group (it’s free) and check the past notices for the box. The gift is there waiting for you.

Sleeping to dream about you

Sleeping to dream about you

No, this isn’t a fall post. It’s still summer. It will be summer forever in SL. Forever! …But I guess this is kind of a fall post. I can’t help it, when designers make such lovely autumn themed things! I’ve got lots of great things to tell you about today, including a super cute group gift and some items from the cart sale!

No shoes!

I love cute little foot accessories like this. That way I can kind of sort of appear fully dressed, but still not be wearing shoes! Win-win. Also, they’re so pretty! I got the foot jewels that I’m wearing here as a free group gift from KC Couture. They come rigged for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink and with a HUD so they can be customized. There are LOTS of color options for the cords and tassels and then a handful of metallic tones for the chain. The KC group is only 25L to join and there is a wall in the store with a bunch of group gifts that are all really nice. I really should wear them more often, if only I could be bothered to wear shoes…

Short Dress

How could this possibly be a fall post if I’m not wearing shoes or any article of clothing past my thighs? My fabulous sweater dress is by JellyRoll and I got it for 10L from the cart sale at The Wash. There are 8 autumn hues to choose from and each is 10L. It comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Mara
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • 5 classic sizes, XXS-L

Okay fine, the bench is definitely fall…

I’m not much of a decor blogger so I’m not sure how much justice I’ve done this bench, but it’s really cute! It is another find at The Wash, this time from Tylar’s Treasures, and priced at just 10L for the cart sale. The pose that I’m using did not come with it, the only poses included are couples poses and since it’s just me I obviously couldn’t use those. There are brightly colored autumn leaves scattered about on the ground in front of it and on the sides and I just love the arbor across the top.

Great stuff, right? Totally worth embracing fall. ❤

We’ll move to an island

We'll move to an island

So I popped over to WellMade because I just had to have the super cute new FabFree group gift bikini. While I was there, I noticed that the gifts for the other various groups seem to have been updated as well! One of the new ones that I picked up is this fabulous shirt that they have available for the Teleport Hub group. And then I was faced with a very serious dilemma – which gift to photograph first?? Well obviously I did the only logical thing – both at once, of course!

Cropped Top

As I said, this shirt is a free group gift for the Teleport Hub group at Wellmade. Teleport Hub is 10L to join, and it’s totally worth one of those precious group slots because it gives you access to free gifts all over the place! This top comes sized for Maitreya as well as both Slink Hourglass and Physique. There is also a HUD with 2 color options. It’s a sexy and casual style that I think is just perfect!

Bikini bottoms

When you pick up this FabFree free group gift bikini at Wellmade, it comes with the bottoms that I’m wearing and also a bikini top that I’m not wearing. Each is sized for:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • additional “tighter” versions of Maitreya and Hourglass in the bottoms

Plus a HUD with two great color options. It’s a casual, comfy, sexy bikini to go with my casual, sexy, comfy top! Oh and as always, the FabFree group is free to join.

Mithral CHAIN

Mithral CHAIN

CHAIN CHAIN CHAIN

Hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. Once again I’ve found myself thinking “How did I miss these” this time about the group gifts I stumbled across at CHAIN. The CHAIN in-world group is just 50 lindens to join and there are currently 4 group gifts available. The simple yet dress Pru is wearing was their October group gift and is thankfully still available. It comes in a Maitreya Lara fit, and includes a color change hud with 6 of solid color options. I’m a sucker for classic black.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Another equally fabulous gift currently available at CHAIN is the set of stacked necklaces Pru is wearing. The necklaces are the November group gift at CHAIN. They also come with a color change hud to let you pick the metal tones and the color of the leather cord. Additionally, the fish bone choker can be worn separately from the two necklaces. I think these two gifts look gorgeous together. As I mentioned there are 2 additional group gifts available, a headband with cute lace kitty ears, and a crop top with a choker style collar.

Mithral at Hairology

I coudn’t help myself, I had to share this pretty ginger hairstyle from Mithral. It is another FREE gift at Hairology. This FREEBie comes in the single lovely shade of red shown with two sizes, and an alpha layer. Just in case you missed my previous post about some of the fantastic gifts at the 2nd Anniversary round of Hairology, you can take a look at it here. To celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of Hairology most of the participating designers have a FREE gift available, no group required.

Paisley Perfection

Pretty in Paisley
Well, hello again Wonderful Readers!  Last Sunday, Ripley and I shared the Militar dress from Scandalize Creations with you in our blog post here.  While scooping up that darling camo mini, I couldn’t help but notice the other group gifts on the wall, so today we traveled back to Scandalize to pick up another Fabulous Find.

Pretty Paisley Print

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always had a thing for paisley.  There’s something almost hypnotic about the intricate, swirling patterns.  This free Revlu skirt combines my most beloved fabric motif with my top color choice, red – two wins in my book!  With its vibrant print, black waistband, and leg-flattering length, this cheery skirt is sure to remain a favorite in my wardrobe far into the future.  To add Revlu to your SL inventory, simply head on over to Scandalize, join the group for free, and tap the picture on the group gifts wall.

Knotted Top

Playing off the hue of Revlu’s waistband, the black, loosely knotted, leather crop top from Beck complements the skirt without overpowering it.  I like the sheen of the texture and the way the ends of the ties cascade down my midsection in soft waves.  Slender straps leave my shoulders bare to soak up some warm SL rays.  Although I enjoy brisk fall days, this summer-loving-girl still longs to frolic in the sun, and today’s outfit is perfect for just that.  Oh, how I wish I could control the climate in RL as I can in SL!  A short, simple Elements necklace from Wazzer Works, at The Chapter Four, perfectly accessorized my outfit.

Sensuously Strappy Shoes

While out on a relaxing bike ride with my canine pal happily trotting alongside, we passed by the Ricielli store and spotted a sign announcing the Halloween Hunt currently taking place. Each pumpkin in the hunt costs 15L, and these Kyra high heels are just one of 20 prizes to be found.  These slinky shoes come in three shades (blood, midnight, potion), and are the perfect footwear to glam up any outfit.

Listen to Your Heart, Not the Crowd

Time For a New ‘Do

On our way over to the Yasminia sim for a little exploration, Rip and I decided to take a quick detour over to the Hairology event after reading Pru’s beautifully written post here.  At Hairology, Ripley sniffed out this free, medium length, center-parted Bezoar hair from Mithral.  This is just one of many free hairstyles generous designers have set out for all to enjoy.  The package includes a color-change HUD jam-packed with 30 textures to choose from.  Sweet and sophisticated at the same time, Bezoar will flatter any avatar.

I hope you have spotted something in today’s post that inspired you to create a Fabulous Find of your own.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

Blue Moon

Blue MoonHello Fab Free’rs and Happy Hump Day! We are half way through the week and I am very excited to share a few more gifts in honor of Second Life’s 13th birthday! This time the gifts can be found at the round of Kustom 9 that just started. Also, get excited, Lumae has a new group gift out and she’s super pretty!

I can’t believe SL has entered the teen years! Sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday we were all still figuring out this wacky wonderful world. To help celebrate this birthday, several designers have placed out birthday cakes (just like the ones at Hairology) with FREE gifts at Kustom 9. Simply click the cake, and get the gift! This gorgeous long hairstyle by Mithral is one of the many FREE gifts. This mesh style includes a regular version and a “busty” version, as well as an alpha layer.

Also at Kustom 9, in the FREE cake from Eclat is this adorably delicate little necklace. I love how dainty and feminine this simple yet elegant piece of jewelry looks. This lovely gift comes in a gold version (shown) and a silver version; both can be re-sized via touch menu.

How pretty is this FREE skin from Lumae?! The Lumae group is currently 1 linden to join. With that single linden you can get this lovely skin and every applier Lumae makes to match! Not to mention the gift has lots of options in appliers and system layers including cleavage, brow color, and freckles or no freckles. Also, you can still pick up a few of the past group gifts while wearing your Lumae tag! You wont want to miss this one!
