A Little Whimsy

Whimsy

The Teleport Hub

Yesterday I was cleaning out my inventory… and with it, lots of notecards. I came across one that was a bit old, and wondered if the gift that was listed at More Than Ever was still available. It looked whimsical, flowery, pretty… and with all the cold weather posts… like something that would really cheer me up!

So I took a chance and teleported over to More Than Ever to take a peek and found that the gift was still out. This Hepburn Rose Dress in Plum is a Teleport Hub gift. You join the Teleport Hub for just 10L and you can get gifts from stores all over the grid! Just check the notices to see what’s available. For just 10 tiny linden, it’s well worth the small join fee.

The dress…

I picked up my dress and brought it home to unpack it, and instantly fell in love. It has a glittery purple top, a wide belted waist, and a skirt that is opaque at the hips, but leads down into a glittery flowered swirl of transparent prettiness. It’s whimsical and lovely and made me think of sunshine and spring.

It was also versatile and included a variety of sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Time for a little exploring.

I don’t always take time to share the sims I visit with you, but this dress made me want to visit something fanciful, so I took to the destination guide to try to find something to suit my mood.

I clicked on “Photogenic Spots” and Astralia popped up. A couple of lines from the description say that Astrialia is “an astral surreal landscape for photographers and art lovers.” And that while, “Nothing was in place according to logic and common sense, everything was in order according to the soul.”

I took a look around after the landscape rezzed in, and found myself spending far more time than it took to just take my picture. It’s a sim worth visiting if you find yourself with a little spare time and feeling a little introspective. I’ve gone back today to finish writing this post (I took my picture yesterday), just so I could see the sim as I sit here to tap out my words to you.

It made me think I need to expand my horizons a bit as far as photographs go. I think sometimes we stick with the familiar and don’t explore enough. I’m ready to branch out a bit… I hope you don’t mind, dear FabFree readers.

I want to take you on an adventure… don’t worry. Freebies will be the breadcrumbs that lead the way 😉

Nothing wrong

Good evening, FabFree!

Nothing Wrong

I know I’m running kinda late today but I needed to show off my new party dress from ‘This is Wrong’.  And believe me, there is nothing wrong at all with this wonderful free gift. The Party Dress comes in two versions, one with the violet edge I’m showing and one with a lovely blue edge. The dress comes in FitMesh sizes XS-XL. It doesn’t come with an alpha layer but it was easy to find one that helped in my inventory. The Party Dress is a free gift for everyone no group needed but I encourage you to join the group and pick up the other past gifts available. The group is free to join too.

As with all gifts from our generous designers, this one may have a limited time so hurry over and pick it up.

Hibiscus Morning

Hello hello, FabFree!

Hibiscus Morning

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is on and I am almost overwhelmed with all of the great prizes the designers have turned in this time. It was really hard to pick what I wanted to show off first! But I guess that’s kind of a cool problem to have. 🙂

I picked this super cute shorts and top set from LOo LOo and Platypus, one because the store name kills me and two because I love this set. This is the ‘Hibiscus’ shorts and top set and you can pick it up for 1 little linden.  Each piece is separate and comes with a good alpha layer. Each piece comes in FitMesh sizes XS-XL and they also come with appliers for SLink, Belleza and Maitreya.  Not only do you get the clothes, you also get the pretty red flower for your hair.  Just a perfect look for a morning stroll on the beach with a friend, don’t ya think?

I also wanted to show off my cute sneakers from one of my ‘go -to’ designers: More than Ever.  These are the ‘Wildflower Low Tops’ and they are the current in-store gacha. You can find eighteen commons in every color imaginable and three Rares with a little friend on them. At 50L per play you can fill up your closet. The sneakers come with a good alpha and fit my SLink flat Feet beautifully.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt runs all of this August but you won’t want to wait to hunt down some seriously cool prizes.

Cowgirl up

Heyy FabFree Folks!

Cowgirl up

I’m back today with a fantastic new Group Gift from More than Ever. This is the “Boho Romantic Dress” and I do know what ‘Boho’ is… but I got this great western vibe from the softly textured denim fabric and I just had to cowboy up. Or CowGirl up.  The Boho Romantic comes in the standard Mesh sizes from XXS-XL and comes with it’s own alpha layer. The group is FREE to join so don’t hesitate! You can also check out some stunning new MTE designs at the Spring Freshness Cart Sale at the Wash (we saw the 10L Strawberry Girl dress here first!) and the Designer Showcase Event.

I had the boots and hat in my hot mess of an inventory closet, but I needed some jewelry with a western flare. I found this gorgeous necklace on the Marketplace for a mere 25L. This is the “Black and Silver Feather necklace” from Country Couture.  It’s beautifully built and comes with a resizer so any size Avi can wear it.

More Than Ever...at the Cart Sale

Have you been down to check out the Spring Freshness Cart Sale at the Wash? Trust me on this… you need to go! There’s tons of great stuff for guys and gals and the home and even stuff for builders! One of my “go to” designers has a Cart full of amazing creations for us girls whether you want to dress up or keep it casual! I picked this ripe little strawberry dress because it’s just so fun. This is Strawberry Girl from More Than Ever and it’s just one of the offerings for just 10L. Strawberry Girl comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer.

More Than Ever... at the Cart Sale

My fabulous footwear is More Than Ever’s 50L item -> the “Daisy Chain” sandal for SLink High Feet.  I picked the crisp white to go with my berry dress but you also get gold and black sandals for that one price. That’s only  16L ( or so) per pair of great shoes. Ya can’t beat that!

Southern Sophistication

Southern Sophistication

Hello Fab Free! Thanks for stopping by our Fabulous blog today. It seems like already there are so many hunts, events, and gifts to be had for the month of February, it’s so exciting! I was able to put together most of this look using group gifts from MoDanna and ECCO, a hunt prize from More Than Ever, and a wearable demo from Alaskametro. I love this look because it reminds me of some of the style you would see in the Southern U.S. where I am from.

Starting from top to bottom, I picked up this sort of matte red lipstick from Alaskametro on the Marketplace. I thought it matched the red of the boots perfectly. The lipstick applier is a FREE wearable demo from Alaskametro showing the “Fiery” shade in their “Creme Red” lipstick collection. This FREE wearable demo includes a system layer, a Loud Mouth applier, an Omega applier, a Lelutka applier, and a Slink Visage applier.

Next I picked up this almost bolero style necklace for FREE at ECCO with my ECCO group tag. This pretty necklace with heart and bead dangles is the February group gift at ECCO. It includes a color change hud to allow you to customize the color of the cords, beads, metal, and gems of the necklace for high versatility. The ECCO group does have a one time join fee of 200 lindens, however you will not only be able to get the February group gift, but you’ll have instant access to several previous group gifts upon joining the ECCO group.

This sophisticated looking sleek black dress is another group gift, this one from MoDanna. All MoDanna group members can pick up this group gift for 1 linden while wearing their group tag. In addition to purchasing the dress, your 1 linden is converted into 1 linden store credit! The MoDanna group is free to join, and there is usually a group gift each month, not to mention group members earn store credit for their purchases.

Finally, these gorgeous boots! I love the tooled red leather look of these red boots from More Than Ever. The boots are the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt prize from More Than Ever. This hunt is a 10 linden hunt, so you can score these amazing mesh boots for just 10 lindens, all you need to do is find them! You’ll be looking for a black and red shoe hidden in the More Than Ever shop.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Holly

Hey again, FabFree-ers!

Holly

It seems like I am just running on last minutes today. I’ve got another ‘catch it before it’s gone’ item for you but it is too pretty not to show off. This is the ‘Winterberry Holly’ dress and it’s from More Than Ever. This sassy little number is the Group Gift for December but thankfully it’s still available for us slow pokes. However, I have it on good authority that it won’t be around too much longer. I really love the details in the dress. The texture of the skirt is just spot on. Even when you zoom way in. Plus, it’s great to see a December gift that is wearable all year round. Winterberry comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer, Another little plus… it’s free for group members and the group is free to join! Can’t beat it!

Don’t miss out… hurry over  to More Than Ever and pick it up.
