That Touch of Pink

That Touch of Pink

Hi Fab Free’rs I hope you had a great weekend and a good start to the week so far. Also to those who’ve celebrated Mother’s Day or are celebrating today, Happy Mother’s Day!! Today I am excited to share this cute almost bubble goth style look with you. You can get this entire outfit including the dress, shoes, ring, and the mani/pedi for just 75 linden. Like always I tell you specifically how, and where in the details below. I hope you enjoy this look. Pink may not always be my go-to color but I definitely love it as an accent color. I personally really love the way this outfit turned out.
That Touch of Pink Close

Usually I’d start from the top and end with the shoes. Tonight I’m going to start by telling you about these fantastic FREE shoes from Empire. Recently Empire put up 6 lucky boards at their main store. Each board has a specific pair of shoes in a single lucky board only color. That’s right, not only are these shoes FREE, they are in an exclusive color for that shoe style. There is a group tag needed to play these lucky boards, however, it’s a FREE-to-join Empire Updates group. This group is separate from the Empire VIP group that allows you to claim group gifts. The group joiner for the FREE Empire Updates group is located just under the lucky boards. Definitely make sure you’re joining the right group. The shoes Pru is wearing for this look are just 1 of the 6 pairs. Additionally, each pair of shoes comes in several sizes/fits for specific mesh feet. If you ask me they are definitely worth stalking the lucky boards for!

Next,  I picked up this beautiful ring and the simple yet classic manicure/pedicure at SWANK for FREE. The ring is a beautiful statement abalone ring. I have always loved abalone in jewelry. The shell has beautiful swirls of green and blue with hints of pink and violet. I think it’s not only a beautiful piece, but versatile as well. You could wear it with anything and it would look amazing! This particular FREE gift at SWANK is from Vintage Touch. Also at SWANK is this undeniably classic white french tip manicure/pedicure set from Tashi. This gift is FREE as well, and includes appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega nails in several “nude” tones. Everyone  should have a simple white french-tip manicure in their inventory.

Now for the dress! This sweet little black dress from Apple May Designs has  a lot of simple charm. The sweetheart cut to the top and the extra wide flare to the skirt gives the dress a doll-like look. One of the best features of the dress is the thin belt. Included with this dress from Apple May Designs is a color-change hud that allows you to choose between several pastel colors for the belt. You can purchase this dress on the Marketplace from Apple May Designs for just 75 lindens as their Buy Now offer.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hi there Fab Free’rs! It always seems the weekend goes by too fast. Other times I feel like I need a weekend from my weekend! Either way, retail therapy always works for me. Nothing makes me feel good like something new to wear, especially when that something new happens to be free! I spent the afternoon picking up a few more awesome group gifts, and I’m happy I get to share them with you.
Group Gifts First, this halter dress is actually the March group gift at BlackRose. You’ll find it in a box near the BlackRose main entrance. Though it is a “group” gift I did not need to join the group to get the gift. Just click the box and the dress should be delivered. Additionally, there is a second equally cute dress included in the gift. This FREE gift is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. Hurry over to BlackRose and pick up this beautiful FREE dress before it’s no longer available.

These FREE group gift heels from Empire are the perfect match for the dress. These sexy peep-toe shoes are too pretty to pass up. They include a specific fit for Maitreya, TMP, Belleza, and Slink feet, as well as a color change HUD that allows you to change colors of specific parts of the shoes by choosing between 12 colors. The Empire group has a one time join fee 0f 499 lindens. Upon joining you’ll have instant access to previous, and current group gifts, each well worth the group fee.

Last but not at all least is this studded purse from Swallow. The purse is their FREE April group gift available to all group members. This highly detailed purse has re-size scripts, and comes in several color options. The Swallow group carries a one time join fee of just 30 lindens. The purse alone is more than worth the join fee, not to mention there are several past group gifts still available.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – > Asset < Want Hair

Skin – [theSkinnery] Estee (Catwa Skin Applier) champagne

Head – CATWA HEAD Annie Vampire *Additional Expression HUD Sold Separately

Horse Power

Sometimes… you just need something different.

I love when different also turns out to be classy…

Horse Power

I made a stop by the Spring Freshness Cart Wash Sale Event this morning and came away with some not to be missed items from three different carts. Mix and match is always my thing of course… I love when beautiful pieces come together in style.

One of the carts I came across that really caught my eye was the BiZarre Hair Cart, where I picked up this rather amazing hair and jewelry set for only 50L called “Horse Power”. You get the hair in all its regal appearance, the earrings, the necklace, and a bracelet (bracelet not shown). It also comes in 12 textures with 12 hairbases all in the same box for the same single low price. I love the details and that despite the fact that this hair is really ‘out there’ as far as style… it is still incredibly classy. Though one could use it for contests… you could honestly don it for a formal ballroom setting just as easily and no one would blink an eye. It is high style couture.

I found the perfect dress to wear with my new hair at the Artic Storm Cart. I picked up the Jackie Oh Brown Stripe dress for only 50L and was really thrilled with the style and fit. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and does include a hat. I had to leave the hat off due to my exotic hair ;)  But there is one in the box, I promise you!

I also wanted to show off some of the amazing textures you can pick up from the Timeless Textures Cart right now for just 10L per pack. This is a great chance for builders or photographers or anyone who just likes great textures to stock up. I’m showing off three of the beautiful styles available in this picture. The beautiful wood grain is from the 12 Seamless Polished Wood Stained Pack. The green textures are from the 12 Seamless Fantasy Marble Mix in Green Pack. And the red textures are from the 10 Seamless Fantasy Marble Mix in Rose Pack. There are quite a few more texture packs set out… all for just 10L each!  Go go go and check them out!

My Address is Ninth Ave Beach 1

Midnight Manias are the words of the day! And I picked up some great ones to share with you! Can you believe that Moon {Hair} has already put out a fresh hair on the Midnight Mania board? It’s true! This beautiful updo called Ninth Ave Reverie in Naturals 2 is on the board now for you for FREE. It locks down fast, so get there early! You do need the group tag, which is 100L to join, but there are lots of group gifts, lucky letters, and the Midnight Mania board which changes out often, making this a group well worth your Linden!

Speaking of Midnight Mania boards…….. dun dun dun! I’m sunning on the beach in a beautiful new dress thanks to one! If you take a hop and a pop stop over to Total Eclipse, you can slap the Midnight Mania Board there and if it locks down, you’ll get a FREE gift certificate for 1,000L to spend in the store! Yes, you heard me right! You can then purchase this beautiful dress among one of many others. The group is 25L to join, but for this generous of an offer, well worth the join fee.

While you are at Total Eclipse with your nifty new group tag, be sure to grab the FREE group gift at the entrance. I’m sporting it above. It’s called Sportify! Bella Tennis Dress and has a sporty feel, just right for kicking back on the beach or other casual attire events.

I’m off to enjoy a walk in the sand. Have a great day!

Spring Liaison

Happy Friday, FabFree-ers!

Spring Liaison

I hope you’re gearing up for a great weekend here on the Grid. There’s a ton of sales and fairs and Hunts and events…. too many to list it seems. I discovered a new to me event -> The Liaison Collaborative. I say new to me because this is actually the third year for this event. In celebration of the birthday, many of the designers have placed out gifts for us. Most are free and a few are 1L.

I picked up my gorgeous new hair from Mina as a free gift. This is ‘Esmee’ and it comes with a HUD for five ombre colors. There are also two ‘chest size’ versions in the gift.

My dress is also a free gift from United Colors for the Liaison Collaborative. This is ‘Moly’ in sky blue. Now, technically this lovely dress is only for Maitreya Laura, Belleza Freya and Isis and SLink Natural and Hourglass. I have it on my classic system body and with a little tweaking it does fine. The dress features beautifully done lace front and back panels and a leather texture.

Spring Liaison

I added a splash of bold color with my free ‘Red Rose’ ring from Ama. The ring comes in both a gold and silver band version and for both hands.

Last, but certainly not least, my pose. oOo Studio has given us another free Birthday Gift. This is one of the five poses in the “Quirky” pose pack.  oOo Studio has done it again with five creative poses that are smooth and incredibly well built. No clipping or weird lumps to be found.

The Liaison Collaborative runs until March 30th. And here’s your taxi now!

The sexy Librarian strikes again…now with Leopard print.

Hello everyone, and Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fabulous time this holiday season. All in all, mine was rather quiet, and that suited me just fine, though I’m rather glad everything has ended. Sadly, there is something else that is ending soon, and that is the Wash Cart Sale! I know, it seems like it just started. So I thought I’d show off one more great deal that can be had before this round is shut down for good. As well, I found a gorgeous pair of shoes in a Midnight Mania that I just had to show you. So let’s get this started shall we?

librarian1

Jan 6th, tomorrow, that is the last day for this round of the Wash Cart Sale. For my last stop there, I had to hit up Luzieefee. I was feeling like my sexy Librarian self again, and the pieces at the Luzieefee Cart are perfect to pull off that look. I went with the Miria belted skirt  #1, which is just that perfect length to shows off my legs, while still allowing me to remain demure, and I really like the belt detailing. My skirt is mesh, and comes in all the standard sizes. There are 3 different colours to choose from, as well as some great business casual jackets, of course, all priced at only L$10 each. Oh, and there is a fun freebie jacket, in a holiday print, for you to grab. It’s never too early to start putting together your holiday wardrobe for next year!

librarian2

Now my shoes….have I mentioned lately how much I love shoes, especially free shoes? I managed to get in on the Midnight Mania board over at JK Trends, and win the gorgeous Peep Toe Heels. They are meant for high versions of SLink ,Maitreya and Bellezza. What’s even better, there is a texture change hud with 18 textures to choose from. I had to go with the Leopard print, Rawr! Now, as is known to happen, the MM board does change each day, The shoes I am showing you, are on the board today (Jan 5th), but tomorrow, might be a different story. It’s really worth it to keep checking back each day, as so far, each pair of shoes that I have seen on there, are just as beautiful, with a very achievable 100 target. Plus, there is a free dress in the subacribo, and  a bunch of group (free to join) lucky boards to stalk as well, so you really need to go check this store out.

librarian3

Alright lovelies, that is it for me for now, but I’ve already got stuff lined up for another post, so I will be back before you know it. Until then, TTFN!

From Day to Night

I was doing a little writing for FabFree last night, when someone dropped off a package at the door. You know I couldn’t help but give it a little shake! I never did figure out what was inside… but I sure tried! It was one of those “Wait to Open” kind of things!

But this fun pose is one you don’t have to wait to open… thank goodness! I picked it up from the Eternal Dream Poses advent Calendar for just 10L. If you are in the group its FREE (you can also join the group for 200L and then all 24 advent gifts will be yours FREE as well as many future gifts and offers!).

From Day to Night 1

Once I was done trying to trying to have a premature peek into my giftie, I remembered that I had some fashion finds to share with you. I stopped by Christmas on 34th Street earlier this week and found four piles of presents under four different trees (look in the four corners of the sim!) and put together my usual mix and match look! My go to full get together evening starts out with this classically lined suit by [LaVian&Co] called RedLabel Under the Boardwalk. I love the wide belt and striped lapels. It came in all the standard sizes as well as fitted mesh… and if you look in the picture below you will see that you can also take the jacket off because it includes a stunning Maitreya applier top in black for additional versatility. Can you believe all this was only 10L as a great gift under one of those trees? Score!

My luscious jewelry was another 10L score by Beloved Jewelry. This Mishka Set would be perfect under any gal’s tree! The detailing is fabulous on the necklace and earrings and better yet? Color change! Yes! Can you believe it? And again, for just 10L!

From Day to Night 2

I wasn’t done with my gifts yet though. I also picked up this sexy updo by Analog Dog Hair called Enja. It comes in two parts with the bun on top and the curls around the face that fall over the shoulder just so. For 10L you are getting a full fat pack… that’s hard to beat! And this sexy style is perfect for day or night either one!

I knew I needed something for my feet, so I snatched up these stylish White Satin Stilettos for Slink feet by Lowen, another 10L find under one of those Christmas trees.

My pose in this picture is yet another Eternal Dream Poses advent giftie! Yours again for just 10L or FREE with your 200L group join. (Plus I needed some hot cocoa after all that gift snooping!)

From Day to Night 3

Had you noticed how in my first picture the top under my jacket was white? I just love it when I can mix and match! Though the [LaVian&Co] suit comes with a gorgeous black undertop (shown in my second picture) I also nabbed this trio of lingerie by Blacklace from under one of the trees. For just 10L you get all three colors in the gift box and I found that the white looked especially nice under the Black and white suit.

My pose in the picture above was another 10L gift you can find under one of the trees. Snatch up this sexy set of stands by oOo Studio called Winterkiss. The box includes three poses for Second Life photographers.

So, I packed a lot into that post! But I hope you found something you liked. I’m going to get back to the hot cocoa and snuggle up with some blankets by the fire!

The Wash Cart Sale – The Dark Fae

It’s that time again! The Bi-Annual Wash Cart Sale! Yayyy. OK, first, I need to confess, I started looking around before the sale officially started, as so many of the vendors already had their wares out. Whew! Glad I got that out of my system. Now, you all know me and shoes..so it’s no surprise that I gravitated towards The Dark Fae cart, as it’s all shoes! What you may not realize about me, 75% of the time, I will gravitate towards flats, even in RL. So I was really happy to see that the shoe offerings were  the super cute, beaded Boardwalk sandals.

DarkFaeWC1

I went with the Skittles pair, as I really liked that the beads were different colours. Each pair does come with a HUD with 4 leather colour options (although I somehow missed getting a shot of my pair in the black! Doh!). As well, these are unrigged mesh, made to fit SLink flat feet, or Maitreya flat feet. For all you male SLink feet wearers, don’t fret, as there is a pair of really nice men’s sandals available too. All this goodness at only L$10 a piece! Love it! Here is the direct TP to the Dark Fae cart (although they are now boards, which make for a way better shopping experience), and I have included a shot of the cart so you can pre-decide which colour you want before having to brave the mad rush of AV’s that are happily shopping at the sale:)

That’s all for now, until next time, TTFN!

A little bit of Hunting in Africa, my camera is the perfect shot!

 

Well well…It’s another beautiful Thursday! Hope you all have had a good week since I was last here. I’ve been having to endure renovations at my workplace, and it’s been a little rough. I am so glad I have SL to escape to once I get home. This week, with the help of the African Summer Hunt, I’ve escaped to a whole other continent, Africa! For LM’s to all participating stores, hunt previews, and hints, here’s the link to the hunt website. All hunt prizes are free. So, let me show you a few fun things I picked up while working on this fairly easy hunt.

africa1

My lovely maxi skirt, ruffled top and head wrap are all part of the hunt gift you will find over at Cheeky Parrot Boutique. I just love the store name. For all you male FabFree readers, there is also a men’s gift included. All three pieces of the Nyoka Ladies set are mesh, and excluding the head wrap, which comes in 3 sizes, they come in all the standard sizes. I’ve included a shot with a closer look at my top and the head wrap. The colours and patterns on these pieces really do scream African Summer. I love it!

africa2

The other hunt item I wanted to show off is from BoWillow. My super-cute sunglasses are 1 of 3 pairs you will get when you find the hunt item in store. I happen to be wearing the giraffe pattern, but you also get a zebra pair, and a leopard pair. How much fun is that little bow! While BoWillow mainly focuses on children’s clothing, these sunglasses are mod, and also have a sizing script, so no matter your avie size, you can wear them. BTW, special mention, if you have space to keep it out, the box these glasses come in,  is too adorable. You’ll know what I mean when you unpack your items:)

africa4

The last addition to my African look, is not actually from the hunt. Although I did kind-of hunt for it, on one of my many Marketplace hunts. What did I find, my pretty henna body tattoo. This is a Marketplace L$1 promo offered from AV Ink Tattoo’s, here’s the link. You get a torso tattoo, that I am wearing, as well as a set of hand tattoo’s, which I am not wearing. Both tat’s are system layers, and they really are just delicately simple and pretty. I really wanted something that would match the feeling of my outfit, without going for the typical tribal tat’s, and I thought this fit the bill. Do not be surprised if you see this tattoo showing up in my other posts.

africa3

OK, while I have stayed pretty quite while posing, I think the lions finally noticed me. So I better be heading out. I hope you enjoyed my trip to Africa with me. Who knows where I’ll end up next. Until next time, my lovelies, TTFN!!

What’s Black and White and Read all over…

….why, my blog post of course? *Waits for the groans to subside* Well, happy Thursday everyone! Trust me, my bad joke is not in vain, as this week, my blog post really is black and white…with a little bit of RED all over. I’m channeling my inner rockabilly, black and white movie star this week, both literally, and figuratively.

B&W1It all started with my dress. Before I go on, let me start by saying I got all my fabulous finds on the Marketplace, kinda. I’ll explain what the kinda means, a little bit later. Close-ups of each item are in the collage below. Oh yes, back to the dress. This gorgeous, retro coat/dress is from Angel DELUXE, and you can find it HERE on the Marketplace, for only L$9. It’s called the Poablack Rockabilly Coat, and it’s kind of like a wearable demo, except you can also get a demo for free if you’d like to try it on first. There are other versions of this beauty available, just not for the sweet L$9 price! It is mesh, and fits the standard sizes:)

My next retro-esque item is from [BE]lieve, and it is these sexy red heels I am sporting. When I saw the polka dots, while scrolling through pages and pages of shoes, I knew these were the ones. The aptly named Red Spiked Bow Heels are for SLink mid feet, and are non-rigged mesh, so you adjust their positioning if need be. I think they are a steal at only L$20, and the Marketplace link for them, is HERE. As an aside, the listing for these shoes says they are a 24hr promo only…but, I got them on Aug 5th, and as of today, they are still the same price. So they might be a permanent promo, or it’s just taking the creator awhile to change the price again, and if that’s the case, don’t wait to grab them if you love them like I do! I mean come on….spiked bows!

The last item I am featuring is my beautiful grey-toned skin. Now, this is where the ‘kinda’ comes in. You can find the lovely Film Noir Dame skin from Oddment on the Marketplace for a small sum of L$30 HERE. In the interest of full disclosure…I have actually had this skin in my inventory for many, many years, almost as long as I’ve been in SL. Do not let this persuade you that the skin is old and outdated…even after all this time, it is still beautiful. So no, there are not any appliers provided, however, a grey-tone is super easy to match, trust me! I almost did not need to use the ankle and wrist tattoo layers to blend my hands and feet, they were so easily matched. I have gotten a lot of wear out of Ms. Film Noir, and was super excited to see it still available, when I just happened across it recently, in a random search on Marketplace. Hooray!

B&W2

With a few more added touches (a few FabFreely priced, L$75 or under) to complete my outfit, I think I totally rocked my rockabilly/retro tv movie star look! Don’t you? How lucky was I to find a red phone booth for my main picture? LOL. With the fogginess of the W/L setting I chose, I felt like I was in a horror movie, with a monster, or zombie ready to pop out from behind the booth at any second! OK, now I need popcorn, this sounds like a great movie night! *grins*

OK lovelies, that is it for my post this week. I already have some thoughts in mind for next weeks post, so you keep an eye out next Thursday! Until then, TTFN.
