Pirates in Pink

Who says pirates have to wear black???  I picked up this hot little number called Millie Jeans Dress at the Kinky Pinky stand at the TWE12VE Event for a smokin’ 12 Linden.  There is a three style HUD that comes with it, but I totally love the pink.  Would YOU listen to a pirate in pink???

TWE12VE Shanti and L&P

I love me a good fashion event in SL.  I love them more when gifts or dollarbies are a part of it!!!  The TWE12VE Event is one of my favorite.  Great designers and really nice 12L dollarbies & even a freebie!!!  I picked up this adorable “Lucky” dress from Shanti just in time for St. Patty’s Day (free gift, no group required), and these adorable Origami earrings from LooLoo & The Platypus to match.  The earrings come in gold, silver, and variations of color with those metals.  For 12L, you can’t go wrong! Twe12ve is running until March 31st.

This outfit, partnered with the cute Le Poppycock Pose, “Versions of April: Fragrance Fling” that I got off their amazing Next Up machines on a 75L pull, puts me in a Spring mood!

Waiting on Papa Noel

On A Lark Short PJs and Slippers 2

I have a quickie for you while I await Santa’s arrival. I have my Christmas pjs on and I’m feeling  really cute & comfy. I hope I’m not on that darn naughty list again this year. In fact I’m discussing this with my sister. I won’t tell you what she said.

The 30L Saturday sales started early this year on December 23rd and will run until Midnight on Sunday morning. I picked up these great holiday themed pajamas and slippers for $30L each at On A Lark. I chose the Lights texture. There are a number of textures to choose from for the jammies (each set is $30L). But, the slippers come as a fatpack with a texture changer hud! There are only two sizes: small & large. They did fit my Maitreya flat feet without any other adjustments. Woohoo!

The Short PJs are sized for:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • All the Kupra variations
  • SLink HG & Physique

Hitch a ride and scoop up these goodies now!

Merry Christmas to all of our Fabulous Readers!

Okay… I just found my newest ‘Go – To’ cozy but beautiful, it’s just perfect sweater! The minute I saw it on the 25L Tuesday page, I may or may not have made a little “oooooooh” in real life. Like… I wish I had this one in my real closet!

This is the “Snowflake” sweater from On a Lark and you can add t to your closet for just 25L as it’s the 25L Tuesday Sale. It’s offered in sixteen colors, each for the special 25L price. I actually picked up a beautiful claret red in addition to the chocolate one I’m showing. There is also a fat pack if you need every color! (It’s not on sale)  You also get a HUD with each color to change the snowflake pattern on the collar to solid.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Blue Rose

Blue Rose

Hello and Happy Weekend, FabFree. I know this weekend s a frantic one for me! Have you seen all there is to do and see on the Grid right now?? Of course, our own FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost is my personal favorite but there tons of other hunts going on that need our attention. Like the 6th Aniversary Hunt going on at Belle Epoque!

There are so many wonderful gifts (30 to be precise)in this store hunt that I had a hard time choosing one to show. But this sporty casual shirt dress is my fav. This is “Rose” and you can grab it for free in the Birthday Hunt. All of the gifts in the Hunt are totally free and there are even some friends of Belle Epoque with items in the Hunt.

For example my lovely new necklace from On a Lark. Not only is it beautifully made, the entire necklace is resizable and easily modified so I was able to make it fit perfectly. That is really something I appreciate since I’m not exactly the average avatar size elf.

The Belle Epoque 6th Anniversary Hunt runs until  the 30th of the month so go get your hunt on!

Sizes Included for “Rose”

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

To celebrate my new dress I made a quick jump over to Olive to take advantage for the great weekend sales going on now. There are four hair styles up at the front desk ranging from 60 to 75L on a couple of different sales. I grabbed this lovely style “Awake Hair” for the 75L price. It includes a full fatpack of colors too!

That’s it for now FabFolks, I got to run… so many sales to get too! Later gaters!

Such Love

Such Love

Hey FabFree! Today is Tuesday…..! So you know I was out tracking down the best of the 25L Tuesday sales for us! I just love Tuesdays!

Today, all my love is for On a Lark and this lovely little summer frock; ‘Jeanette’. I just love it when Designers put out their best for us bargain hunters. This isn’t just another choker or snapback. This is a full on gorgeous addition to our summer wardrobe for just 25L!  Jeanette comes with a HUD to change up just about everything on the dress. The color of the collar or the belt or the hem. Flowers on or off! Polka Dots here or there! I spent a lot of time mixing and matching all over this cutie. Jeanette comes in a ton of colors each one for the 25L special price. I’m betting you will find a favorite or two!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Kupra
  • Kupra Bimbo
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Heart Songs

Heart Songs

Hey FabFree! I’m feeling very mellow today, very much a wander in the meadows following the butterflies sort of feeling. Maybe it’s the beautiful SIM. Maybe it’s time of year. It could be the beautiful BoHo blouse and skirt I found over at the Witchwood Petite Mort Spring BoHo Hunt!

I do love it when two of my favorite designers team up for one of their awesome Hunts and sales! The Spring Hunt is accompanied this year by a huge sale in both stores. You can get 50% off the entire store until May 7! This does exclude Gachas and New items but it still leaves a ton of great bargains! 

The Hunt is happening between the stores and you can pick up a notecard at the landing point with clues and info and a cute little rose basket for free. Each item on the hunt is priced between 10L to 20L. I have never been disappointed with anything I ever got from Oubliette or Petite Mort and these Hunt items are no different. The details, textures and build are all perfect!  So don’t let anything stop you from loading up on these gorgeous spring clothes!  The Hunt and sale run until May 2 so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

No Goodbyes

No Goodbyes

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

It’s been a little over 7 years since I started blogging for Fab Free. Love Trill took a chance on an eager-to-learn wanna-be fashionista with no blogging experience and limited photography skills. I’m forever grateful she did. Not only did I learn new things, best of all it’s through this blog, Fabulously Free in SL, that I’ve made some of my most cherished personal connections. The kind that I hope against hope will last a lifetime. I’m lookin’ at you, my fellow bloggers, past and present. In a round about way, it’s even through blogging for Fab Free that I found a kind of love that I had not even imagined.

Needless to say, the last 7 years have meant a lot to me, more than heartfelt words, or poignant quotes could ever express. I want to say thank you also to those of you who read the blog regularly, and have taken a moment over the years to show appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes in to a blog like Fab Free. After more than 15,000 blog posts, I feel it’s time for me to say farewell to blogging for Fabulously Free in SL and take time for new adventures. Thank you for everything, from the bottom of my heart.

No Goodbyes

For this, my last post, I do of course have some freebies and fabulous finds to share with you. I picked up the group gifts at the latest round of Cosmopolitan. There are two gifts this time, an upper body tattoo by AuricA, and a set of stunning eyes by Arte. I also of course picked up the Happy Weekend Sale item by Muniick again this week. Seriously, I just could not resist!

AuricA

This upper body tattoo by AuricA is free with your Cosmo Sales group tag. The group is free to join, and the gift is waiting on a signboard just inside the Cosmo event entrance. The tattoo comes in a single applier hud, that has appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies.

Arte 

I think these eyes by Arte are really beautiful. They have an ethereal look to them in my opinion. They also happen to be a free group gift at the Cosmo event. Again the event group is free to join, I’ll link it down below. These free eyes come in 8 colors that range from natural looking to otherworldly. They are also in several appliers, a set of mesh eyes, and BOM layers so anyone can wear them. Also, there are small, medium, and large options for each eye-color.

Included: Catwa Applier, Omega Applier, Bakes on Mesh Layers, Mesh Eyes + Alpha Layer

Cosmo Event Group – secondlife:///app/group/7382cf06-a663-d569-9683-5c3f0edd968f/about

Muniick

Alright, I might have an issue with collecting furniture as of late. I’m not at all mad about it though! This weekend (today is the last day!) Muniick has their French Revival Armchair and Ottoman set for 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend Sale. This set is copy, so you can set out multiples. There are also color change options, and so many poses I couldn’t give you an accurate count. No group is required to get the discount price.

Happy Weekend - 60L!

Get Your Halo Dirty

Dirty Halo

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m so ready for the weekend, and I’m feeling sweet and sinister in this pastel look. I hope you have fun with these pretty playful group gifts from Dappa and Safira I have to share with you. Let’s get to it!

Dappa

Watercolor style tattoos always look so delicate and lovely to me. I even like the pastel blues and purples of this free group gift tattoo from Dappa. The tattoo comes in BOM layers and appliers (with a fresh and a faded option) for most mesh bodies. Also, the Dappa group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Maitreya Applier, Legacy Applier, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, BOM Layers

Safira

If you ask me it doesn’t need to be October for you to wear skeletons, or in this case skeleton hands! This cute bodysuit is the latest group gift at Safira. I really like that this bodysuit has a version meant to be worn with pants, and one meant to be worn by itself. This free group gift also has a color change hud with quite a few solid color choices, and some metal options for the little heart-shaped buttons. The Safira group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there is an entire wall of group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), MeshBody Legacy
