Seek and You Will Find

photo_006

Hello there Fabulouses!  When I saw Carson’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}about the What’s Your Category Hunt, I decided to check out the female prizes up for grabs.  Ripley and I teleported over to  Ambient Fashion, and although it took some determination and many trips around the store to locate the hunt icon, the Cassandra shirt was well worth our investment of time and one little linden dollar.

Nevertheless, She Persisted

When I first attempted to locate the small black bag tied with a red ribbon, I just couldn’t find it.  I wandered throughout the store, upstairs and downstairs, and after quite some time, I gave up in frustration.  However, later while looking at the hunt prizes on the preview page, my eyes were drawn over and over to the knotted Cassandra top.  I loved the raspberry and purple tones, and became determined to add the long sleeved shirt to my inventory.  So….I returned to Ambient and searched again.  I’m so glad I did!  The satiny texture of the fabric, the realistic folds, and the dangling ties all combine to make the perfect casual cropped top and, at only 1 little Linden dollar, the price was just right!

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Applier for Isis, Curvy, Fine, Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Physique, TMP and Venus

That Look in His Eye

As I put the finishing touches on this blog post, a certain canine someone tapped my leg with his paw, and stared longingly at his tracking harness.  I think he is enjoying the challenge of tracking down hunt gifts to share with our readers.  We’ll hit the trail again, and hopefully be back soon with another Fabulous Find.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Water Cooler Break

Water Cooler Break_001

Busy working… sort of.

It was a busy day at the office and I needed a quick break so I stopped by the water cooler. I managed to get in a little social networking while I was there as well… like talking about my latest outfit find at Prism. I hunted down this 1L Winter Blows Hunt gift in no time flat to add to my wardrobe just the other day and it is perfect for a day at the office. My colleagues agreed.

What you get.

The outfit is one piece mesh, belt included, and comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a good alpha layer if you are still rocking your system bod. I paired it with a pair of black boots for a complete look, but you could always go with heels. For 1L and some hunting time, this dress is a steal.

Back to work for me… break time is over!

Hunting for Frosting.

I made a couple stops along the trail of the Frosting Hunt and found a couple of gems to share with you. My first stop was Prism, where I picked up my outfit. It includes this excellent pair of suede pants and the lovely off the shoulder pink sweater. Each piece is separate and comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a good alpha layer. For just 1L and a little hunting time to find the snowflake, this gem of an outfit can be yours.

Sitting pretty.

I also stopped by Kitty Creations because I was in need of a furniture pick-me-up. The Frosting Hunt prize there is this lovely braided rug as well as this nicely patterned black ottoman which includes quite a few very nice unisex sits. The rug is copiable, but the ottoman is no copy. However for only 1L, if you want more than one of this gorgeous ottoman, it won’t break the bank to hunt down the snowflake and buy more than one copy of this Frosting Hunt prize at Kitty Creations.

Ready to Ring in the New Year

Happy New Year_001

All decked out.

Prism has me all decked out for the new year. I knew when I saw the new Lanai gift out that it was destined for my New Year’s wardrobe. This gorgeous gown is mesh in all the standard sizes and includes a good quality alpha. You’ll also get two flexi pieces at the base that give it a little frill. It’s perfect for dancing the night away!

The gift is also FREE with you group tag. The group is FREE to join so you won’t spend a dime to look like a fortune 😉

Ring in the New Year!

I decided to ring in the New Year with a little gift from JLZ Fashions. I got my FREE headband as their current group gift. You also get a party horn too! Just don your group tag (the group is free to join) and my New Year headband is yours for 0L. It comes in two versions… with or without sparkles. So you’ll be ready however you want to shine.

Time and Again

Time and Again

Certain stores are good for group gifts time and again… and Prism is one of those that offers a top quality monthly group gift for both ladies and men. In case you missed them, there are several past group gifts out, even though I’m showing you the current FREE September group gift called “Jupiter.”

Jupiter is an outfit that comes with white capris pants and a sweater with a texture change hud. The sweater is white as well, but includes four grey print overlays including the timepiece texture in the picture above. You get all the standard mesh sizes.

Last month’s group gift is just as nice, and you’ll want to pick it up too, if you haven’t already. Gabriel showed it to you [HERE].

Urban

Greetings FabFree Readers.
urban

Welcome to the weekend at last. Time to get into something more casual and go explore our virtual world. I found this stylish outfit for free at Prism for Men as the August Group Gift. This is the ‘Jeremy’ jacket, shirt and pants set. The jacket and shirt are one piece while the dark jeans are separate. The jeans come in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and the jacket/shirt is sized at S-L with two FitMesh versions. Along with two alpha layers versions, everyone should be able to find their proper fit. I found this outfit to be perfect for wandering our more urban corners of the Grid.

August is nearly finished so hurry to Prism for Men and pick up your free group gift soon.
I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Island Hopping

Happy Monday, FabFree-ers!

Island Hopping

It’s always a good day, Monday or not, when I find an exciting new Sim to explore. And when that Sim is running a fun free little hunt with nifty prizes it really makes my day! I visited Noelia island today for their ‘Noelia Island Hunt’ and had a wonderful time. There aren’t hidden objects for this hunt, you go around the island ‘talking’ to people and animals who give you a gift and a notecard with the next clue. I had a lot of fun. Plus one of the Hunt gifts is this snazzy dress and hat from Prism. This is ‘Coco by Journey’ and you get the top and skirt as one piece plus the hat. Coco comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. The hat is optional and can be moved/modified for the perfect fit.

The Hunt runs until June 30 but Noelia Island is a lovely place to get to know. I have a feeling I’ll be visiting often. Your Taxi to the start of the Hunt!

Love Prismatically

Love Prism 1

I’m hot on the trail of hunt deals, and I broke into some prismatically detailed outfits at Prism Designs! Prism Designs is participating in two great hunts with two amazing gifts, and you will want to nab them both up!

For just 1L you can love this Love Hunt gift outfit called Chenae Leather Jacket and Dress. The dress and jacket are two different pieces and can be worn separately or together for a stunning and unique look either way! Each piece comes in all the standard mesh sizes and the dress has a great plunging cut out back with a fabulous geometric print that really catches the eye.

Love Prism

I wasn’t done hunting down the goods though, and picked up this great outfit called Odelia while still at Prism for FREE. It is part of the Loving Kind Hunt and includes both the mesh pants and the mesh sweater, again in all the standard mesh sizes with great geometric prints to really set them apart from your standard fare. Well worth hunting down the little red heart and popping it into your wardrobe!

Leftover Turkey!

I’m back today with a few more ‘leftover’ Hunts to enjoy.

leftover

First up is the 1L Jerky Turkey Hunt and the ‘Tessa” dress from TSR Designs. There are a ton of Hunts going on at TSR so prepare to spend some time. Plus there are group gifts and Gachas to check out.

From a jerky to a dirty. Next is the “Twila brown tweed Peacoat” from Bodhi and it’s the FREE prize for the Dirty Turkey Hunt. This is one of those things in SL that I kinda wish I had in RL. The details are spot on and I love the fall tweed look.

leftover

My pretty leaf swirly poses are also part of the Dirty Turkey Hunt. These are from Juxtapose and include the leaves props. The leaves actually slowly swirl around you as you pose. Juxatpose has generously placed both a ladies three pose set and a men’s three pose set in the prize for the Hunt.

Both the Jerky Turkey Hunt and the Dirty Turkey Hunt run until November 30th so don’t delay!

 

P.S.  Do you remember my shoes from here? They are still available from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes in the Leaves are Falling Hunt for 1L until November 30th!

Nerdy Spice

Pumpkin Spice

Hey Fab Free! Is everyone ready for a spooktacular Halloween weekend? I know this girl is! I’ve picked out my costume for Halloween, now I have a cute look that is perfect for the season. Orange is always a good color for fall. I think this pumpkin colored sweater is super cute on. It’s just low-cut enough to give it some sass without being too showy. You’ll have to do a little hunting at Nerdy Girl to score this sweater for just 1 linden. The sweater is Nerdy Girl‘s Psycho Pumpkin Hunt prize. You’ll need to hurry though, the hunt ends October 31rst!

Recently Pink Acid sent out this gorgeous jewelry set in their VIP group. I think it’s perfect for dressing up any outfit, and the pale “pumpkin spice” tone of these pearls is beautiful next to the pumpkin orange of the sweater from Nerdy Girl. This necklace and bangle set is FREE, simply join the Pink Acid group (it’s currently FREE to join) and check the past notices. Keep in mind notices expire in 14 days, so don’t wait on this one.

The last little finishing touch for this look is this striking orange lip color by ZOdiacO. I found this lelutka applier lipstick hud on the Marketplace for FREE. The hud includes 5 beautiful lipstick colors , most of which are red or pink, with the exception of the the one shown called “Goldie”. If you’re a lelutka head wearer I’d call this lipstick applier set a must-have.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
