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.

In the wild places

In the wild places

While the world is full of troubles
And anxious in its sleep.

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild

With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.

~ W B Yeats

Hey Hey Fab Free! We’re almost to the weekend! And I am so ready to welcome that sexy beast back! I am all about the casual today and probably tomorrow too. Shorts, tees, easy looks to throw together. Sometimes you want to go all out, today… not so much.  Even so, I’m still looking ‘Faaaabulous’ thanks to Ahlure and their awesome free Group Gifts.

When you join the free Ahlure Group, you will get to take your pick of several past gifts. I jumped on this super cute set. These are the May and June gifts still available. The denim mini comes with a HUD for four colors and a large belt. (Not Shown). The top is even more versatile. It comes with a HUD that allows you to change the fabric from Denim with six colors to choose to Silk with eight colors to cloth/patterns with another eight patterns. Seriously! That’s like getting 22 tops… for FREE.

Did I mention the gifts AND the Group are FREE? Yep! So hurry down to Ahlure, join that free Group and grab those goodies!

Sakura Petals

Good evenin’ Fab Crew! Have you ever looked at something and thought, “Yeah… that’s okay. Cute enough.”  But then you really look at it and think, “WOW, how did I miss that? This is so so cool!”  Maybe it’s me… Anyway, I have two items for this post, one you’ve already seen but I couldn’t resist showing again and one I almost tossed out because it was ‘just another mini’. Both of these items are from the Dubai Third Anniversary round.

First is my hair. This is No_Reason from No_Match and our adorable Cre showed it off in her post here. I saw it and thought, “Browns… I don’t need brown hair,” But I unpacked it anyway and saw one of the browns was kinda auburn. I popped it on clicked ‘edit’ and then changed the color from basic white to a more orange color. And Bingo! Red hair!  I’m saying all this because with a little easy fiddling this Freebie was just right for me when I had thought it wasn’t at all. It goes to show ya, don’t pass up a free gift until ya mess around with it. You might miss out on something cool. Well, that and trust Cre, she knows what she’s doin’ 😉

Second, is my lovely new mini, the “Medea” dress from Flirt. When I unpacked it I was a little ‘meh’ about it. Then it rezzed fully and I took a closer look. The pink ‘splashes’ are gorgeous branches of cherry blossoms! The pattern reminds me of the old paintings on silk in Japanese art. The vibrant contrast of the delicate pink and white on the ink black background is really stunning. And the workmanship in the dress is simply beautiful. And to think I almost passed it by.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Perky
  • Maitreya Petite

Classic Oriental styles are so sexy and elegant. I do admit I’m not sure this high cut dress is really classic, but I love it. I scooped up this lovely dress for only $50L as one of the offerings at Viktory Dark for the #Energy# Weekend Price (Group is FREE to join). I can’t pass up a deal like this! There are several colors to choose from so run cause it all leaves at midnight tonight!!

My classy hair style is a free gift from No_Match for the Dubai Third Anniversary event round. It’s called No_Reason and comes with a hud full of browns and this lovely flower accessory. This round of Dubai ends on August 12th.

More Magic from Promagic!

Promagic KishMish Outfit & Dua Heels

It’s a day for chilling out and being lazy. Well at least for me it is. How about you? Of course there is always something happening in SL where I can hang out & dance or go in search of more fabulous things to share with you.

More Magic from Promagic

I was recently enticed to join the free Promagic group after seeing all of the lovely gifts offered (it really didn’t take much to entice me). BTW, there are about 100 gifts set out for VIPS. Vibrant colors & cute styles are reasons I love this store!

Today I am wearing the Kishmish top & shorts. The hud has plenty of options to mix and match (or not). It’s a little girly & frilly & perfect for summer. I paired the Dua heels (another group gift @ Promagic originally shown by Aline here) with the outfit. The most difficult thing about wearing this is choosing the colors I want for the day!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Belleza Freya
  • SLink HG

Be Your Change

Every once in a while I “shake up” my groups. I mean I join new groups and leave a few. Give it a try and see what you get.

Happy Shopping & Grouping!

Hunting for Fairies!

ap_007

So as you are all aware of (or you should be!) the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt is in full swing!  It is a theme I love because I am all about fantasy!  When I do a photo, I feel like I am creating a character and that character has a story!  For instance, my character today has some sort of mystical thing going on, her outfit, her magical sphere, where she is (some secret forest place?).

I know you want all the deets so lets do it.  😉  Both my items can be found in the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt, so get your hunting shoes on (or do it barefoot, Like I do!) and do some hunting!

Fairy Hunting!

My dress is one of five from Ruxy, it fits Matireya and Legacy.  All her hunt gifts are only 1L and all very cute!

My orb/sphere is from Afterparty who makes so much fun glowy stuff.  This is a 5L gift.

How to get them?  Just find the little rainbow fairy hiding in the store (some stores have several!) pay them and they will give you a gift as a thank you for finding them!  Such cute, generous little souls!

Other Yummy Finds

My hair is a freebie from the Hair Fair (goes until July 4!) made by No.Match.  There is no group required to grab the gifts at the Hair Fair!

The little fireflies glowing around my head are a free group gift from Persefona.  That group is free to join and she’s got lots of fun goodies for taking photos at her shop, if you have never been there!

Last the little garden area behind me (not the trees, just the cool colorful part!) is a free SL18B gift (no group required!) from Dreamland Designs!
