Hey FabFam, I know it’s late ( in my part of the world anyway) so I’m going to make this really quick.  As ya’ll know, the 2022 Hair Fair is going strong and hopefully you’ve visited. There are some awesome designers participating this year and many booths have a little gift for us. The best gift, in my opinion, is this lovely photo – op hair from No_Match.

This is “No Press” and you can grab it for free at the No_Match booth. The hair is static but it’s perfect for pictures. Which, you know… we do a LOT of! 🙂  Plus, you get a full fatpack of colors with No Press too. 

I wanted to sweeten my post up a bit, so I rummaged around on the Marketplace and found this cute little flower crown for just 10L! This the “Honey Flower Crown” from Sweet Intoxication. It’s an older build but it still looks very nice and I’m picky about such things. But this one is staying in my closet.

The Hair Fair runs until July 10th so don’t delay!

Lost In All The Noise

Lost in All the NoiseHappy Friday! I’m beat. I don’t know if it’s from the never ending week that I just survived or because of all of the freebie shopping. Probably the former. But the latter might be true too. I’ve been to yet another fantastic event having an anniversary – this time Tres Chic!

Very Stylish

That’s right, an anniversary round of Tres Chic began on May 17th. There is a free gift at nearly every booth. The group is required to get them, but it is free to join. They are all soooo good. I’ve only probably opened like half of them, but I just couldn’t wait to tell you about it so that you can pick up all of the goodies too! I’m showing two free items from Tres Chic today:

  • Free hair by no.match – It’s a super cute fun style that I don’t wanna take off. Included is also hairbases and a HUD packed with all the essential colors in a dozen or so colors each.
  • Free top by Blamage – versatile and fun and sexy like whoa, you’ll get this tank in black with the optional word “Baddie” across the front, in sizes for:
    – Ebody
    – Kupra
    – Legacy
    – Legacy Perky
    – Maitreya
    – Maitreya Petite

As I mentioned, Tres Chic opened a few days ago and it runs till June 10th.

Here Comes the 4L Bride!

A Blushing Bride for Just 4L

Love is in the air and SL’s wedding season approaches.  Valentine’s Day weddings have a been the seasonal kick off since the beginning of time (well, virtual time, anyway).  But, what’s a bride to do if she doesn’t have oodles of Linden to spend on her special day?  Never fear, Desi is here!

I set out to create an entire wedding outfit for less than 200L including dress, shoes, hair, flowers, jewelry, makeup, and a pose. I had two rules: the outfit would have to be something I would actually wear and the items couldn’t be part of a weekly/weekend special so they’d be available to our FabFree Readers if they wanted to check them out.  In the end, this amazing outfit only cost FOUR (4!) Linden!!! (Plus a group join fee!)

Assembling an elegant bridal package was a harder task than I could have imagined, but thanks to hints and tips from my blogging sister, Jacx Broome-Waverider, I ended up with a beautiful ensemble to reflect my own tastes in bridal finery.

First, I had to say yes to a dress.   I hopped on over to Siss Boom because I remembered seeing a white gown on the Lucky Boards.  You can read more about my obsession with Siss Boom‘s FREE no-group lucky boards here.  It took about 20 minutes, but HOORAY!  I found a beautiful simple white gown named Wayward.  It’s elegant and comes in two styles – sheer and solid.  I am wearing shear.  The solid version has modesty backing to the top.  Cost : FREE!!!

Dress Sizes:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP

Next came hair.  Jacx reminded me that No-Match recently had a bun posted as the group gift. We teleported over to find a new group gift, but quickly made our way to the VIP room.  The group gift was not actually a bun, but, rather, hair attachments (called No-Embrace) that could be used with bridal hair. However, in perusing the fabulous room of VIP Gifts, I found No_You Rock which is my style of a messy but classy updo complete with pearls in it.  I paired that with the No-Embrace Pearls accessory to create a pretty head of hair for the wedding outfit.  Price: two free group gifts with 50L join.

Beloved & Truth Closeup

I tried to find a nice veil for cheap, but didn’t score.  The ones I tested off of MP were, well, circa 2006.  I did, however, find a pretty Pearl and Pewter Tiara from Nightfairy.  You have to fiddle a little with it, but, overall, it works.  Cost: 1L

For jewelry, I stalked MP for a good hour to find something pretty.  I found two sets from Beloved that I liked, but settled on the Teardrop set in Silver because it matched the Tiara.  Cost: 1L

For flowers, I found a simple but pretty bouquet at Wedding Princesse on MP that is currently being offered as a dollarbie.  This really is a no-frills bouquet, but you only need it for a hot minute before the dancing begins!  Cost: 1L

For shoes, I found LaPerla’s Apple Sandal for Maitreya in White on MP.  They are simple and pretty, but you really can’t see them under the dress. Cost: 1L

Finally, to strike a pose for my official wedding album, Jacx sent me to MP to An Lar poses where for 0 Linden, I picked Like a Lady #4.  Cost: FREE!!!

Total Cost for this outfit and pose?  4L (plus 50L group fee for No-Match)

Shanti Advent day 16 2021 3

Last night I watched a movie about a prince hosting a formal holiday dinner. It brought to mind the pageantry during the reigns of kings and queens. Everyone dressed in their finest finery. What a sight to behold!

Just the Begining

Just the Begining

Hello again, Fab Crew. I hope this Monday is treating you right. I was joking with Arielle the other day that as soon as Thanksgiving was over… I was diving straight into Christmas. Snow is coming down, tree is going up… the works! We NEED some Christmas goodness and happiness this year! Am I right?? Soo from here on out… it’s all Christmas all the time for me!

So I’m starting out with this gorgeous gown from Glitterati by Sapphire because it just screams Regency Christmas to me. With it’s lovely little leg of mutton sleeves and the rich green velvet sash. It’s time for caroling and seeing what Mr. Darcy is up to.

You can pick up your own lovely dress for free when you wear your FabFree Group Tag, also free, and head over to Glitterati. Be sure to take a look at all the gorgeous gifts ’cause there are a lot of them. So until next time FabFree… HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

My new hair style is also making the start to my holidays merry and bright. This is current group gift “No_Results” from No_Match. I love the retro look with the swept sides. It comes with a full Fatpack of colors and a slender head band that can be turned on and off. The No_Match group is 50L to join but you’ll quickly make that back with all the past gifts available. Plus, this is one of the most reliable Designers for monthly gifts. Something I know I certainly appreciate!

P.S.  The cute little snowglobe I’m holding is also available on the Marketplace from *Seek* for just 1L. And at just 1 LI it makes a prim thrifty addition to your holiday décor.

Handbag Shopping

Handbag Shopping
Hiya, dropping a quickie for you all, in case you are in need of a free outfit for the weekend. Or just because you deserve a new outfit. 🙂

Shopping With Purpose

The last post was about evolving your look every once in a while. Guess goes without saying it also gives you another reason to shop. (Not that all of us need a reason.) Jacx is shopping for handbags, and personally, I feel handbags should have a bit of personality, sometimes the more outlandish they are, the better I like them, plus they have to match some pair of shoes or outfits. Today’s shopping outfit features a free subscriber gift from [ADD]. The Ashley outfit in winter white and red is extremely versatile, with 2 tops a frill top, or the one shown, you can wear the top with or without the sleeves. And 3 styles of pants, regular style for your high heels, underboot style to wear under boots, or the option I chose with pants and boot all in one. You can pick up this free outfit just by popping over to the [ADD] store and giving the subscriber a good tickle. 🙂

That’s a wrap for today.

Good evening, FabFree! I hope that you have had a wonderful week. All I can say is thank goodness it’s the weekend. What a week I’ve had! Hopefully, I will have a bit of time this weekend to chillax and dig into all the great October freebies out there. Speaking of free gifts, I have some lovely ones to show you now!

Sparkle!

Tonight I have some beautiful jewelry from Beloved Jewelry to show you. First off is the gorgeous crystal, silver, and amethyst earrings which are a free FabFree gift. Just join the Fabulously Free in Second Life group and the earrings are yours! They sparkle and are so elegant. Here is the group join link:

Bowler

The hair I have on is a recent group gift at no.match, and it is extremely adorable. It is this cute bowler cut, and it includes several colour options. I love it! This hairstyle is unisex and can be worn by women and men. The no.match group currently costs 50 Linden to join. You need to head upstairs to find this gift and it is called “no trend”. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

Humm… Wonder if Arielle can get Sir Paul (here) to come sing “Birthday” at this party? 😛

Fabfree & Me

Happy Birthday to FabFree and Happy Rez Day to me. FabFree and I have grown up together since September 6, 2007. It sure has been an exciting and sometimes bumpy ride to get here 14 years later. About a week or so after Jacx was born, listening to music and dancing at my favorite club. I was talking about the struggle to find affordable clothing. When one of my new friends (a guy (LOL) Said to me ” I have this link for a blog where they show free clothes you can get.” This was my introduction to FabFree. From Farrah and Renee, to the lovely ladies of today, they have kept me and my ever expanding, out of control inventory (101,893 and rising) current with gifts, groups to join, awesome pictures to look at. What more could a girl who loves fashion ask for..
So for the last 14 years every morning while drinking coffee and before I log in to SL, I open FabFree to see where I will be shopping that day. LOL. Sure has been a ton of fun. And I thank FabFree and all the ladies past and present, for helping me be one of the best dressed ladies on the grid. 🙂 For todays festivities, Jacx stopped by Entice for the  Springsteen Dress, (free, No group needed). This sweet strapless mini, comes with 3 different party prints.  Pop over to Entice on your rez day and pick up your free gift. Though you can not see ’em, the lovely big hud Jades Wedges, completed the party going fashion.
