Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007

Nothing sexier than a love of books.

Happy, happy Thursday everyone! I was afraid I might not make it in time this week, as I am having a few issues with my internet provider, but as you can see, I toughed it out and have some great things to show you. I like to call this my hot Librarian look 😉 .

library1

It all started when I was browsing through the notices in our very own FabFree group in world. I opened the notice from Braham Design, and they had this super cute pants suit group gift. The Ria outfit is free for Braham Design group members, and that group is free to join. The gift consists of mesh pants, a mesh shirt, and a mesh jacket. All pieces come in the standard sizes, and are meant to be worn together, with alpha’s provided to go without the jacket if you’d like. However, they will work separately as well, and since these pieces are all classics, they are for sure going to be staples in my wardrobe. library4

Naturally, I needed shoes. Now, I will admit, the shoes I went with, are highly unpractical for a real Librarian…luckily for me, this is SL, and all shoes are super-comfy *grins*. OK, so, I decided to stop at Shey’s, as I had heard a lot about them, but had not been. Well, I’ve been missing out. In the building labelled Shey Days, there are so many awesome deals, as well as group gifts…I couldn’t help but load up. I picked out the super-glam Trio Q Stilettos. They are for SLink high feet, and as seen in the picture, have a HUD with so many texture options. I had a hard time choosing colours for myself. Red and gold are a classic combination, and go so nicely with black…I think I have a winner. These beauties will set you back a piddly L$30.

I did mention group gifts from Shey, and how fortunate that one of these group gifts totally worked with my look. The simplistic beauty of the Kos Jewelry set, which includes a necklace, earrings, and a bracelet, are a perfect complement for my outfit. As I said, they are a free group gift, the group is free to join, and are actually included in a big grouping of jewelry. So even if this style is not working for you, there are several other pieces included in the group that you are bound to love. Oh, and don’t forget to grab all the other group gifts as well…let me just say…boots. library2

The last piece I wanted to share with you, is from Maxi Gossamer, and as so many of her jewelry pieces are, it is a statement piece! The gorgeous ring on my right hand is called Ketama, and is the current free group gift. The group is still free to join. You get 2 rings in this gift. a small version for your left hand, and this larger, eye-catching version for your right. Both rings are texture change through clicking on the ring itself, with metal options of gold or silver for each of the stone choices. I think it was the perfect final touch to this sexy Librarian.

OK Fabbies. I think I have done my job for the day. I have to admit, this is one of my favourite outfits I’ve put together, and I am going to get a lot of wear out of it. What can I say, I love looking good, for a good book 😉 . I hope you all have a great week, and I will see you all back here next Thursday. Until then, TTFN!

It’s all about free today..everybody loves free, right?

autumnheat1Ahh, Thursday again, which is quickly becoming my favourite day of the week, as I get to show all you lovely Fab readers, some great deals! Today shall be no different. The recent post, by fellow blogger Morgie Hilra, that Pru featured HERE, in which she made a video showing off several places for new, or just deal-loving avies to go for free or well-priced items, including our own FabFree HQ, reminded me that it has been an awful long time since I paid Free Dove a visit. So, this week, that is where I headed, and let me tell you, there is something for everyone, whether you are new to SL, or have been around awhile and have mesh body parts out the ying-yang. LOL. Let me show you a few pieces that I think everyone will love, and each item is totally FREE! autumnheat2

Let me start off with my clothing. The cute Layla tank in Purple, and my sexy Jade skinny jeans, are both items at Free Dove from blah.BLAH.blah. The mesh tank top actually comes in a whole fatpack of colours, 8 to be exact, and each come in the standard sizes. As for my jeans, it is almost like a fatpack. You get 4 versions of jeans. V1, which I am wearing, has a brown belt, while V2 has a jean belt that matches the jeans themselves. Both versions then also come in 2 more versions, cuffed or uncuffed. Not bad for free. Like the tanks, these are mesh, and come in the standard sizes.

No outfit is complete without some kind of jewelry, at least that’s my opinion. Lucky for me, EarthStones has some goodies for you at Free Dove as well. Their offering is the Lora set in 2 colours. These sets consist of a necklace, and matching earrings. You get one set in silver, with a turquoise stone, which I am showing off (although my hair is hiding my earrings), and another set in gold, with a warm, orangey-coloured  Sunstone. Each piece is script-resizable, so the majority of shapes and sizes should be able to adjust as needed.

autumnheat4My last Free Dove gift to show you, is from Pink Cherry, and it is for you SLink hand and feet users, such as myself. You can pick up a set of nail appliers, in a really pretty metallic and black pattern, again, for free! Silly me, forgot to include a picture of the hud, but there are 8 total colours for you to choose from, that all have the black accent stripe on them. The perfect finishing touch for pretty much any outfit. autumnheat3

OK, so I mentioned my hair when talking about my jewelry.  The last gift I want to share with you, said hair, is not from Free Dove, but I had to let you all know about it. The fun and sassy Sadie hair, in Walnut, is the current free group/subscribo gift from Zalea. You all remember ChiChickie! don’t you. Well, when they closed to rebrand, Zalea is what they became. Pru showed off the free Grand Re-Opening gift HERE (and it’s still available, in case you were wondering, along with the gift hair they had out at this years Hair Fair.) Both of those are free for everyone, but if you want the hair I have on, you have 2 choices; join their free in-world group and grab it from history, or if you don’t have room, join the subscribo, and it is in that history, as well. It’s a sweet style of un-rigged mesh, with some flexi-pieces that add a little movement as you walk, and you all know how partial I am to shorter-do’s.

Alrighty..I think I have shown you all I can for now. I know, I could find more, but I need something to show you next week! Who am I kidding, as if I could run out of awesome freebies and cheapies to show off. That is why I love SL, so many generous designers with awesome products for us thrifty shoppers. So, until then, TTFN!

Calle’s FabFree Photo Submission – September “Here Kitty Kitty!”

Hello everyone! So, when I heard about the theme for this month’s photo challenge, I couldn’t have been more excited. I kinda live for my pets in RL, and SL is no different. Meet Spark, the black and orange Firestorm kitty, Niege, the pearly white snow kitty, Asher, my simple but no less special grey boy, and the newest addition Scorch.

kittycats1

Spark was the one who started my cat collection here in SL. Some of you may remember, that lovely black kitty with the fiery accents was a free gift from KittyCatS in celebration of the Firestorm Viewer’s 3rd birthday, last year. This year, since last year’s KittyCat was so popular, they have created a new one for Firestorms recent 4th birthday. The little orange cutie in the picture’s below is called the Fireball KittyCat, and is free for everyone! The Fireball is just like last years Firestorm in that you do not require food to keep them healthy. You can play with them, carry them around, and even have them follow you as you go out shopping. I picked my guy up at the party that was held last week, but even though the party is long over, you can still head over to the KittyCatS main store and grab your free copy of the Fireball.

While I could easily make this post just about the cats, I needed to wear something in my pictures! The OMG Room started its current round last week, and I found this super cute striped dress at the back of the room up in the gifts area. The RD Style Striped Mesh Dress comes in the standard sizes, and is materials ready, giving it this lovely sheen when you move around. At only L$2, it is a total bargain! Don’t you just love the details of the chains on the belt? If you noticed that the cats were not the only ones with pointy ears, you will be pleased to hear that my fun imeow headband, from pr!tty, is a free group gift at the current round of Oneword. You get 2 versions, one with pearls, as I am wearing, and one without.The group is free to join, and there is another group gift available that I do not have on, so you might as well head on over and see what it is 😉 If you couldn’t guess by the kitty ears, the word for this round is Cat. You have until the end of the month to check out this event.

OK, my critters have had enough of this posing for pictures thing and are running away. I guess I better go give them a little loving to make up for me forcing them to sit still for so long, LOL. Until next time, TTFN *waves*
