There are some fashion items that though they speak of another decade, they are timeless. I feel that way about dresses with peter-pan collars. Needless to say, I had to show this dress by Fashionably Dead. It’s their free gift in celebration of Second Life’s 16th Birthday. I think it happens to go perfectly with Lamb’s gift hairstyle for SL16B, and the gift set of pastel lip colors Alaskametro has out as their free SL16B gift. I felt like a 1960s fashion model with a modern edge. Keep reading for more info on each of these fantastic freebies.

I really love this free SL16B gift dress by Fashionably Dead. It comes in a wide range of solid colors, and has a girlish but still grown up look to it. The Fashionably Dead shop for SL16B is located in the Gilded region. This cute dress comes in the following sizes for each color: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya).

This flowing over the shoulders hairstyle is the free SL16B gift by Lamb. It comes in a full fatpack of colors. It also has a hairbase style hud with the choice of hiding or showing the hairbase feature. Lamb’s shop is in SL16B’s Tinseled region. You’ll find this generous freebie waiting there.

Lastly, but far from least, I couldn’t complete my modern retro look without some shimmery lips. Alaskametro put out a pretty Omega applier “Bubblegum” lip gloss pallet as their free SL16B gift. It has 6 frosty pastel shades, and an additional feature that lets you pick from 3 different lip shapes for each color. I think that is a really cool option. This fabulous gift also has one more unique feature that I really like, there’s a button on the hud that will send you the classic system layers for this lip gloss set. Alaskametro is in the SL16B Halcyon region, which is where you’ll find this awesome makeup freebie.

Happy shopping Fab Free, here are the details:

It’s always refreshing to see Designers offering high quality gifts for the men of Second Life.  As Ms. Aline said in her report on the Access Event, the men have not been ignored when it comes to gifts. Nearly every vender of men’s wear has set out a very nice surprise for us. And as Ms. Aline also said: beware the lag! Cam Shopping is the way to go.

All Access

All  of the following items are free at the Access Event when you join the free group. Just wear your tag and help yourself.

Let’s start with my decision not to shave today. Or should I say, selectively shave today. This suave razor cut is from Fe Style. Facial hair style ‘V. GG’ comes with a Catwa and an Omega applier.

Like the shades? These Steampunkish glasses are the ‘Epic Glasses’ from Noir. You’ll get a huge HUD to change every surface to your choice of one of four metal colors. A note here as well on the solid quality of the build. Every detail is spot on.

I know a lot of men don’t like jewelry but I’m not one of them. Like most things in life, it all depends on the quality of the piece. This pendant from Aitui fits the bill perfectly. This is the “Forged Steel Snake” in a deep mahogany color. The necklace is completely resizable to get a correct fit on any body.

Last but not least, my pose is from “Wrong” but it is so right. “W33” comes in four variations and includes a cigarette for the pose. (Don’t tell Juli… she hates smoking) I’ve included a picture of all four poses for you perusal.

Let’s Spill Some Tea


Spill Some Tea

Hello again Fab Free’rs. Thanks as always for being here. I’m here to spill a little tea! okay maybe not “spill tea” exactly, but I am going to serve some tea in reference to how you can get this super sexy bikini and the teapot purse by Fika, along with the bright beautiful Pride tattoo by WitchCraft for next to nothing.

The purse and bikini are part of a group gift Pride package by Fika. I really couldn’t like this adorable bag more, and if it wasn’t cute enough on its own, it comes with 3 bento hold poses. The bikini is every bit as tiny as it looks, but I’m not at all sad about it. I do want to point out that the bikini bottom is very well defined. You’ll see what I mean when you pick it up for yourself and wear it the first time. It comes in several sizes, there is a heart graphic on the front of the bikini bottom that says “Love is Love.” Also, there’s a cute heart shaped cut out in the back. Lastly this Pride Package at Fika also includes a set of bento Pride inspired nails which are not shown. To get your copy of this generous Pride gift you’ll need to join the Fika in-world group which has a one time join fee of 30 linden. Don’t forget to pick up the one or two other group gifts available while you there!

Bikini Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Freya, Isis), eBody Curvy

Manicure Sizes Included: Slink (M,F), Belleza

Next up, the rainbow barcode Pride tattoo is a dollarbie Omega applier tattoo by WitchCraft available to everyone. This tattoo is meant to be unisex so for just 1 linden anyone with an Omega applier compatible body can wear this colorful tattoo and show their Pride. You’ll find it waiting to be picked up at the WitchCraft shop on the wall with the new releases.

Here are the details:

Gelato Day


Gelato Party

Ciao Fab Free’rs, and welcome to (as Love put it) Gelato Day at Fab Free! I know we look like we are about to seriously chow down on some delicious gelato. There is a very good reason for that, the gelato display and holdables with bento animated poses are all part of a free group gift available at Andika. That, and we both really like gelato! In addition to the frozen goodness, Love and Pru both happen to be wearing Surf into Summer Hunt prize bikinis. Love’s can be found at Grumble, while Pru’s is at KaraBaby, which you may recall from Juli’s fabulous post here. Keep reading for the lowdown on all the yummy gelato and the swimwear.

The Gelato – I love Second Life food, it looks delicious, and all has zero calories! This beautiful gelato display is a current free group gift at Andika. There are 2 gifts, one is the display platter with extras to set out and the dispensers so your party guests can pick up their own gelato. The dispensers will give a his or a hers version of the gelato, and a matching his or hers spoon. The only differences between the his and hers is the size, and they each have a slightly different hold pose. The spoon is also animated with a bento hold so you appear to be eating the gelato. The second gift is a set of “take away” his and hers gelato with a bento hold pose. To get these two gifts you’ll need to join the free-to-join Andika group and click the gift vendors while wearing your Andika group tag.

The Grumble Bikini – The gorgeous bikini Love has on is the Surf into Summer Hunt gift at Grumble. Don’t you just love those pretty pastel colors? The hunt runs from now through June 21st. It comes in several sizes and is just 2 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza Freya

HintTo Infinity and Beyond!

The KaraBaby Bikini – Also a 2 linden prize from the Surf into Summer Hunt, you can find the Omega applier bikini Pru has on at KaraBaby. You can get a full view of this lovely bikini and the matching skirt in Juli’s recent post here.  The purple floral bikini has a matching mesh sarong/skirt that comes fitted for several mesh bodies.

Sizes Included: Bikini is an Omega Applier Only, Sarong sizes: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

HintWe all need a snack after a long day at the beach.

Hi Fab Free! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in need of a pool day for weeks. Second Life to the rescue! Of course, no pool day of mine would be complete without my sweetheart. He’s the best, and he still think’s I’m pretty cute even when I’m bein’ a little extra at the pool! haha We both managed to find some great sales, and a few summer freebies to share with you as well. Keep reading for all the details.

Playfulness aside, this sweet poolside pose is part of a current sale happening at Ardent Poses. The sale ends in just a few days on April 15th, and all the sale items including couples poses, and individual pose packs are marked just 65 linden. You don’t need to wear a specific group tag, just head over to Ardent Poses and shop these fabulous bargains!

Tattooed Hipster


Tattooed Hipster

Oh Hi There Fab Free! First, thanks as always for being here, second is everyone having a fabulous weekend? I sure hope so. Mine hasn’t been too bad so far, though that darn real life has been getting in the way a bit more than usual. haha Ah well, that’s the way it goes sometimes. Still, I’ve been able to sneak away and enjoy some fantastic new freebies and cheapies. Just a day or two ago I picked up a few gifts from The Hipster Fair, and Love pointed out this gorgeous freebie tattoo at Mister Razzor. Keep reading for all the “whats” and “wheres”.

The Outfit – The cropped top and shorts set Pru has on is a dollarbie gift by Enigma Apparel at their Hipster Fair shop. I love it when I find loungewear that is both comfortable looking and a little bit sexy. The white top is quite sheer, so you may or may not want to wear something under it. The dusty pink shorts however are completely opaque, so no worries there. This cute dollarbie set comes in several sizes. Also, if you for some reason cannot make it to The Hipster Fair, you can pick this set up for a slightly higher price of 10 linden on the Marketplace.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Brow Tattoo – I know it’s not as easy to see in this photo, but the bold tattoo over Pru’s brow reads “Hipster” in a handwriting-like cursive font. I thought it was cute, and the price is even cuter at 0 linden. That’s right, this little Omega applier tattoo by Rin is completely free. You can pick your copy up at Rin’s Hipster Fair shop.

The Full Body Tattoo – I’m a total fan of Frida Kahlo so when Love mentioned a free “Frida” tattoo out at Mister Razzor, I was on it! Not only is this full body applier tattoo free, there’s no group required. Simply pay the vendor 0 linden and this gorgeous tattoo is yours. It comes in omega appliers, and can be split up to be worn just the lower body portion of the tattoo, just the upper body portion, or both for the full effect. Each one has 3 different opacity levels as well. Again, no group needed, so don’t miss out on this fabulous free find.

((Mister Razzor)) Frida Tattoo

Hair – Doe: Londra (twotone) – Candy RARE
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Litzi

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Feels Like Summertime


I have no idea what to call this.

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Saturday. In my post today I want to share with you the March group gift at PumeC and the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Posh Tale. The combination of the two really made me daydream about warmer weather. I hope you like them both as much as I do.

The Skin – The March group gift at PumeC is a full skin with Genus head and body appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega  in all skin tones. This gorgeous gift also includes body only base skins in each tone, a default shape, and brow shaper. For me the best part o Free f this skin is the summery freckles across the forehead, cheeks, and nose. The PumeC group has a one-time join fee of 399 linden and there are several previous group gifts still available. Below is a copy of the vendor ad so you can peep the six skin tones and get a better look at those lovely freckles.
