A Quest for Treasure

A Quest for Treasure

Hey Hey Fab Free!

The weekend may be winding down, and the snow may still be swirling in my part of the world, but my mind is fixed with laser-like precision on spring, warmth and all things connected therein. What can I say, at least I’m consistent.  I found a treasure trove of goodies for you, so read on!

The Quest Continues…

Did you manage to take part in the Flawless Game Show Quest yet?  There’s one day left to partake in this fun game, where you TP to a bunch of stores, answer some questions and at the end you get all sorts of goodies!  I showed you some other gifts I received here.  The whole thing took me about 45 minutes, so it’s well worth it.  Today, I’m showing off the Orquidea Still Summer dress – which is a gorgeous hue of turquoise dappled with sea birds.  It just makes me happy.  It comes in sizes XXS-L with an Alpha layer!  Oh and…psssst….it’s free!

Piles of Presents

So, have you been to Pure Poison?  I’ve been a fan of their shoes for quite some time, picking up their stuff at events.  I hadn’t been to the store though (weird, I know), and nipped in out of curiosity the other day.  Holy mackarel guys – there is quite literally an Alladin’s cave of gifts hiding in there, and they’re all FREE.  There are two group gifts in the front entrance area, one that Astrid showed back in December here, and the other that I’m wearing on my tootsies today!  You can wear the shoes and socks separate if you prefer!  They come sized for Isis, Maitreya, Freya and Hourglass feet.  Don’t just stop there though…. head into the gacha area and take a look at the machines – loads of them have the words “group gift” printed on them, as well as there being a giant wall full of accessories – the bangles and necklace I’m wearing today are two of the finds I came across.  You’ll be accessorizing forever!  You can join the Pure Poison group for free – hop to it!

Phew.  I’m getting a little overexcited!  I hope you all enjoy!

Old World Style

Old Town_001

A little old world style.

I’m gearing up for the first of the year, but first I’m enjoying a bit of old world traditions. I found a Christmas gift that is still out that you’ll want to snag before it disappears that made me feel stylish enough to go out and enjoy feeding the birds at a location that reminded me of such pleasures.

The gold is the thing.

This gold dress by Orquidea is mesh with split sides and beautiful detailing. It’s not quite glitter or sequins, but it has enough shimmer to make it beautiful in any setting. Join the group for a tiny 10L and you can pick it up free under the Christmas tree. There was also a regular monthly group gift out that you could pick up as well. It includes all the standard mesh sizes and a good quality alpha for standard bodies.

Old Town_002

In the details.

I stopped by Genre, and like most events right now, you can pick up gifts. The Sn@tch booth had a little bag set out that you could buy for 0L and this classic black cloche hat and these gold spiral earrings were inside… yours as a free gift. They matched my new gown perfectly and I knew I had to take them home. There were lots of other booths with goodies set out for you to pick up for FREE, so it’s well worth the trip. Hurry before you miss the treats!

Bitter Berries

Bitter BerriesWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun “elfing things up” (as Carson put it) in my last post that I thought I’d give it a second go. I really do love these LODE gachas, and the Orquidea cart at The Wash’s Cart Sale gave me the perfect excuse to wear more of the gacha goodness from LODE. Needless to say I’m excited to share these inexpensive finds with you. Also, if by chance I am not back here before the holidays, I hope each of you has a wonderful winter holiday, no matter what you celebrate! ❤

LODE Bitter Berries 

So once again, I spent more money than I should have playing the gacha machines at LODE. Thankfully they are just 60 lindens per play. The gorgeous headpiece Pru is wearing and the pretty matching ring are both from the Bitter Berries gacha machine at the LODE flagship store. Along with these beautiful accessories, you’ll find additional equally gorgeous pieces to be won. One thing I can honestly say is that I’m never disappointed in the quality and detail in the items I’ve bought at LODE, these are more than worth the 60 lindens.

Bitter Berries 1Orquidea at The Cart Sale 

As I am certain you’ve noticed, the winter round of The Cart Sale at The Wash has begun and there are some Fabulous finds to be had. I took a stroll through yesterday and picked up several things personally. This beautiful burgundy colored dress is one of several 10 linden items at the Orquidea cart. There is a green version available as well, and I don’t mind telling you I had a hard time deciding which color to share with you. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and also includes a matching beret (not shown).  Along with this pretty wool dress, there are several jewelry and accessory type items at the Orquidea cart.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Little Hallow-Something For Your Outfit

Snapshot_001
Hi there FabFree!  If you have been reading my posts over the years, you probably know that while I am not a big “Halloween costume” girl…  I do ❤ LOVE ❤ the season and adore adding little touches to my outfits to celebrate rather than going all out.

Orquidea had just the touch I was looking for to add a little hallow-something to my outfit today, in the form of this Sweet Kitty Mesh Shirt.  The blouse and vest are one piece and it comes in several mesh sizes with co-ordinating alpha layer for those still on the system body.   The best news is, that if you like it as much as I do – you can pick it up for FREE!  All you need to do is hunt down the little hidden candy corn hunt icon for the Tihuta Halloween Hunt!

Happy hunting!

Fall for Vintage

Fall for Vintage

The Cart Wash Sale is well under way and I just fell in love with this Vintage set in brown from Orquidea. These are applier pieces that come separately for just 10L each, and also include a system layer for non-mesh avatars as well.

10L will get you the shirt in a system layer and appliers for Maitreya or Belleza. An additional 10L will get you the jeans in the same, with the addition of sculpty cuffs at the ankles for a pretty and realistic look. If you prefer shorts, there are shorts also available. I’m sporting the set in brown, but there was a pretty set available in red as well!

Ready For Spring

Snapshot_006

Hi again Fab Folks!  Just stopping in to share a couple of fantastic 10L finds I picked up at The Spring Freshness Event at The Wash 🙂

I found these sweet butterfly printed cuffed denim jeans on the B&T Mesh Studio Display and paired it up with the “mostly” sheer White Blouse that I found on the ORQUIDEA display.   I did have to wear one size larger in the blouse than the jeans in order for the meshes not to conflict, but that was no problem.  I think I am ready for spring now!

It Was Your Orquidea All Along

Orquidea Cart Sale Exclusive

What a beautiful day it has been! I was hanging out at Fab Free Headquarters earlier and it was nice to sit back and people watch, you can see a large section of The Cart Sale going on at The Wash from the Fab Free patio area. If you have never been to one of the Cart Sale events out there, this one is the one to go to. The more I see of what is available for just 10 lindens, the more excited I get. You could replace your entire wardrobe if you wanted. On this lovely Saturday, I decided to dress up a little and wear one of the Cart Sale Exclusive dresses from Orquidea. I have always liked this style of dress, I think it’s very form flattering and sexy without being over the top. You’ll find this mesh dress, as well as a pretty black and white version for just 10 lindens on the Orquidea cart. The Orquidea cart has several cute dresses and a couple of fun retro-inspired rompers.

Orquidea @ the Happy Holidays Event, with a side helping of Tori-Tastic and Truth.

It’s Christmas Eve! For those of you who celebrate Christmas, I hope you are all ready! I still had a few things I needed to run around and get, and lucky for me, I looked fabulous while doing it.

OrqChristmas1

First off, my super cute coat. For all you non-mesh lovers, this is the coat for you! The lovely ORQUIDEA Winter Coat – Red, is from the Happy Holidays event that is still running, on the Wash Sim, just outside of the FabFree HQ. This system layer + prim coat comes with 2 options for the length. Whether you want to go short, like what I have on, or go for a longer, and fuller look, you have that option. This coat is ORQUIDEA’s L$50 selection, which means everything else available at their booth, is only L$10. I’ve included a shot of the booth so you all can take a peek. You only have until the end of the month, so do not delay if you are loving this coat.

OrqChristmas4

OrqChristmas2

While you are on the Wash Sim for the Happy Holidays Event, why not come over to FabFree HQ and take a look at the Christmas gacha machines just outside. My oh-so-practical, yet so adorable, Christmas shopping tote is from the Tori-Tastic gacha. Each play is only L$25, and you have a chance at winning 4 common totes, 4 common clutches, and 1 rare of each. My Wreath bag is the rare tote. Hehe, it almost sounds like I am singing the 12 days of Christmas when I read that last bit outloud. The FabFree Christmas Gacha is also only running until the end of the month, and with nothing over L$30, you really need to go take a look before it’s gone.

OrqChristmas3

Last but not least, my hat + hair combo is a recent free subscribo gift from TRUTH HAIR. If you were already in the subscribo list, you were sent the holiday version of Aspen, in 5 different hair colours. If you aren’t on that list, don’t despair, just head over to the store, and slab that subscribe button, and you should be able to pull it from the history, if it isn’t sent to you automaticly.

Ok lovelies, I am off. I plan on being back before the end of the day, but just in case I don’t make it back before tomorrow, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, no matter what you celebrate 🙂

Not too Shabby

Orquidea has the black Major Doll zebra print short set as the gift in the G4G hunt.  This outfit reminds me of a cigarette girl costume.  The soccer ball hidden in this store is fairly easy to find and if you have trouble, just have a seat!  Farah blogged the SCSole Gladiator Sandals from Shoe Fly Shoes a few days ago.  These heels are a group gift in store for Shoe Fly Shoes members.

Yesterday I blogged the Jogger outfits and told everyone about the gift card birds flying around Perdition.  Well I slapped the midnight mania board while I was there and won the flared denim mini skirt and Shabby top and shrug!

PixelDolls has outfits available for free!  The violet Lucie dress is a group gift in store and the Hibiscus print dress is a pick reward gift.

The Hoshi skins are a free gift at ai design studio.  I’m not sure how much longer these skins will be available, but hurry because they’ve been sitting in my inventory for quite some time now.  The lovely black curly hair reminds me of our Whisper so much!  This hair is in the lucky board at W&Y Hair.

All the poses used are from Diesel Works Animations.  There is a 50% off sale going on and Diesel Works group members get an additional 10% off!  Also, be sure to check out the info on the photo contest.  There’s some major prizes for the winners of the photo contest!  First place winner gets L$5000 cash prize and L$3000 worth poses, second place will receive L$2500 and L$2000 worth of poses, and the third place will be rewarded L$1000 in cash and L$1000 worth of Diesel Works poses!  The contest rules can be found here: www.dieselworks.me/dwcontest2.
