Pink, it was love at first sightOh hey, this is fun. Free gifts, no group join required, from three great stores, all in one easy to access spot! Fun, right?

The Harika sim is home to three stores. When you TP over, you won’t have to go far to see the things that I’m showing you today. Right at the landing point you’ll find these three free gifts, one from each of the stores. There is no group join required; these gifts are free for everyone! Mirinae offers a really cute set of free poses, complete with mirror versions of each. The free gift from Yumi is this adorable dress, which includes a HUD of solid and pattern color options for both the skirt and the top. I, of course, went with a pink floral because I’ve been feeling pink AF lately, but you can suit your own mood!

Sizes

  • Reborn
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

The third gift is a free set of eyes from Oiche which I’m not wearing but they’re really pretty, too. And that’s a wrap, peace out FabFree.

Turn Off The Lights, And I’ll Glow

Turn off the lights, and I'll glow
My looks have been all over the place lately. It’s just so fun to play dress up and there are creators making gorgeous things in all different styles, what’s a girl to do? Especially when there’s so much prettiness about for free!

Fashion MOGUL

My first stop was MOGUL. All I had to do was join the free update group and then claim the three free group gifts on the wall by the entrance! I just love these jeans, so sexy and fun. The gift is this “rose” color and includes sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Lara
  • Kupra
  • Hourglass

I think that they look great with a simple cropped tank top, but I bet you can style them much better than I did.

Poser

What a fantastic name for a store – Unholy Duality. If you’re a poser like me then you’re going to love this one. Once your find yourself at Unholy Duality you’ll just need to join the free group and take your pick from the free group gifts on the wall. In this case you’ll be getting poses. Do I show poses too much? I realize that people who don’t photograph and/or blog won’t be into them really, but I just can’t get enough poses. Hopefully you feel the same way!

I guess that’s it for now. ‘Till next time. ❤

The Colors are a Changin’

When Autumn Comes to Town

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am popping in with a quick post to share my latest hunt prize and a budget-friendly crop top with you.  I know, I know, the leaves are changing, but I can’t bring myself to give up my summer tops just yet.

Don’t Forget to Be Owlsome

First, I just had to tell you about these adorable baubles from Loordes of London.  The Republican Redundancy earrings are part of the Changing of Colors Hunt 5 and feature shimmering gold accented with brown eyes and wing spots.  All you’ll need to do to add them to your inventory is to locate the hunt object, an orange leaf, hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the tiny prize fee.  There are 25 stops along the hunt trail, and each item costs just one Linden dollar.  You have until September 30th to do some sleuthing of your own.

She’s a Rebel

Soon I will have to at least start wearing a jacket, but for now, I’m enjoying soaking up some sunshine on these early fall days as I take in the foliage.  My new Bebe Mesh Crop Top from !Rebel Hope is a lovely shade of brown that is perfect for the autumn landscape hues.  With its halter-style neck, soft texture, and cute laces on the side, it’s sure to please.  I picked it up on the Marketplace for a reasonable 25 Linden dollars.  The folder includes an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh avatar body types.  A color change HUD for the laces with 8 options allows you to customize your look.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy hunting!

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are as ready as I am for some fall colors.  Today, Ripley and I are bringing you a little slice of fall foliage as we share a couple of budget friendly Fabulous Finds.  I hope you like them!  Before I get into the details, if you are looking for a beautifully decorated autumn landscape, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Cherishville sim.  The puster and I really enjoyed the oranges, browns and other fall colors when we were there. They provided a wonderful contrast for the dark hues of my outfit.

A Great Hat Speaks for Itself

First up, my cheeky cap is a gift from the Inventory Trends store.  With a darling bow and just enough of a brim to shield your eyes from the sun, the Velma hat adds a functional and cute finishing touch to my ensemble.  Best of all, I picked it up for free, just by being a member of the Third Life Group.  The group has no join fee, so I didn’t have to pay a single Linden dollar for my newest fashion accessory.  Although the hat cannot be resized, I was able to move it around on my head and I resized my hair underneath to get the fit I was looking for.  The thoughtful designer tucked a HUD inside with three texture options so you can coordinate with different color schemes.  In addition to the black I am sporting, you could also choose red or a dark brown.  While you’re in the shop, you might want to try picking up one of the fourteen other gifts set out on the wall for members of various groups.  I’ve included a close up photo below so you can get a better look at Velma.

Velma

There’s Something Sexy…

about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.  The mesh black leather pants from the Bang Bang shop on the Marketplace pick up where Velma left off in the attitude department.  With a soft sheen, zippered pockets and a skin tight fit, you will feel super skinny, sexy and toasty warm when you wear this wardrobe essential.  No chilly autumn breeze will work its way through these pants!  Best of all, with a price tag of a mere 10 Linden dollars, you’ll hardly notice the difference in your bank account balance after your purchase. The folder includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars, so there is something for everyone tucked inside.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatiblity:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Basking in the Desert Sun

Desert Sunlight

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are still wandering around the grid doing our best to avoid winter.  Today, we traveled to the beautiful southwestern landscape over at Villa Baldeney.  One of my favorite aspects of the desert is the brilliance of the sunshine and the warmth in the air… (although I will probably deny this in the summertime!).  The adorable cropped top that I am wearing in my photo does a fantastic job of reflecting the light, AND it’s a free gift as well!

All Wrapped Up

I think you probably have already figured out how much I like the Kali Top from American Bazaar.  With its open back and sexy wrapped style, this little number is just right for catching some rays.  The shimmering texture and curve-hugging design of this free group gift flatter your figure, and the dark shade will coordinate with a variety of bottoms.  I chose long jeans, but could also see pairing the top with shorts, capris or even a skirt.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the American Bazaar Fashion Group, but with a join fee of zero Linden dollars, it’s completely free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Hmmm, I see a vulture circling overhead.  Perhaps it’s time for Ripley and I to resume our rambling journey across the warmer weather sims in SL before that bird gets any ideas.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Hello hello from Cloud 9! Well from a cloud anyway. haha I hope everyone is doing well. I’m excited to share with you this gorgeous Lucky Letter Board dress from Apple May Designs along with a beautiful group gift hairstyle from Opale. I took the photo from the back because I felt like the back of the dress and the back of the hairstyle were quite nice. I love the long understated black bow detail in the dress. I also thought the little wisps of hair in the back of this long hairstyle were a nice touch. Keep reading for the details on how to get each of these fabulous finds.

The Hair – The hairstyle Pru is wearing in the above photo is Sofa by Opale. There is a free group gift version of Sofa at Opale that includes 3 color versions. There is a blonde, a dark blonde, and a brunette color with the pretty pink and blue color fades. At this time the Opale group is free to join. The Leo hairstyle shown below is another free group gift currently available at Opale. I also saw two group gift headbands.

OPALE GROUP GIFT

The Dress – I think this sweet slip of a dress by Apple May Designs is really pretty. There are two ways you can score this dress for free or very inexpensively. Apple May Designs group members can participate in the Lucky Letter boards. There are two, one for each of the colors shown in the ad below. If you don’t want to wait for your letter to pop up and have a few lindens to spare, AMD group members can also purchase this dress for just 49 linden. There are also previous AMD group-only specials available at that price, just be sure to wear your AMD group tag. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden if you are not already a group member.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

Just let me have my fun tonight, a’ight

Just let me have my fun tonight, a'ight

I tend to forget about Pink when I’m shuffling music which is unfortunate because she’s got some really great songs, like the one that I borrowed my title from for this post. I had to listen to it like 3 times to decide which line to use, I wanted to use all of them! …but that would have been a ridiculously long title. Anyway, today I’m wearing a whole bunch of Suicidal Unborn. There are a ton of free group gifts available and they’re all really great, so I’ve combined three of them here – my top, necklace, and eyes.

The Shirt

Shall we discus my shirt first? Ohhhh the shirt. lol I really like it. Because seriously, who hasn’t felt this way? Especially in Second Life where I would argue that the boys in question are not necessarily more prevalent, but definitely bolder. It’s a bit crass perhaps, but oh so accurate! Because there is only one way to say some things. This particular free group gift has an included HUD containing 6 color options and comes in 5 sizes, XXS-L. It did take a bit of alpha’ing to make it fit but I was able to get a perfect fit easily.

The Eyes

If you’re an eye snob like me, then you have to go to Suicidal Unborn. Seriously, the eyes are gorgeous. There are gacha machines in the store with eyes and lots of really cool styles available, but these are a free group gift! I tried to crop my picture a bit tight so you can see them, they are so so pretty. You can also click the picture to see it in flickr if you’d like to get a closer view. My only issue with the group gift eyes is that there is no catwa applier (the other eyes in the store do have a catwa applier) but that seems like a minor gripe, all things considered. I’m just really terrible, bad, and no good at editing eyes so please excuse me if they’re not fitted quite right. What it DOES come with is classic eyes, mesh eyes, and a HUD fuuuull of colors to choose from! The HUD also lets you change the left and right eye independent of each other, so you can have 2 different color eyes of you want to. It’s really fantastic and so pretty. Did I say that already? Because they’re really pretty.

The Necklace

I love finding quality jewelry and this cool choker totally falls into that category. It has interlocking chain in the front and the back is a leather band. It also includes a HUD that allows you to chain the color of the metal and has 3 options for how distressed the leather is. All as part of a free group gift.

The Suicidal Unborn group is 100L to join but there are quite a lot of gifts available. I would happily have paid that for any one of these gifts, and instead I get ALL of them plus a bunch more. Yes, please! You can find these and all of the other group gifts behind the front desk when you enter the store.

How We Roll

How We Roll

So I was unpacking some more of my awesome Redeux gifts and realized that TODAY is the last day of the event. I couldn’t resist showing you one more quick look with some of the gifts that I picked up there – specifically this necklace, top, and skirt. Don’t they look great together? And they’re all free! But don’t look too long, because Redeux ends TODAY.

Redeux, redeux

This event has already gotten quite a bit of coverage on FabFree, but that’s because there are so many great gifts. Most recently, Serena blogged it here and she’s got links on that post to the other times it’s been blogged. Links within links, it’s like the movie Inception up in here.

When you get to Redeux makes sure you join the free Redeux VIP group so you can pick up all your gifts. Oh and did I mention that it ends TODAY?

Flippin’ Your Fins You Don’t Get Too Far

Flippin' Your Fins You Don't Get Too Far

Another day, another great bikini. I love my slife.

Moshi on the Marketplace

The bathing suit I’m wearing today is by Moshi (only for Maitreya bodies) and is available for 1L on the marketplace! It’s a super cute style and I like that there’s a little more to it than the itty bitty bikinis that I’ve been wearing recently. There’s a little more coverage but it’s still fun and sexy. Not that there’s anything wrong with the skimpy swimsuits but well diversity is the spice of life, right?

Fortuna at Imaginarium

I got this necklace at Imaginarium. It’s a gift there from Fortuna. When you get to Imaginarium, click the sign to join the free Gimme Gacha group. You’ll need that tag activated in order to pick up this necklace and all of the other gifts sitting at most of the stores. They are all free group gifts. Yay!
