Garden Party Madness

Garden Party Madness
I’m back in the mood for garden parties today.  The kind where everyone dresses up and there are small foods everywhere (you know, like tiny sandwiches, miniscule cakes….), and the heels of your shoes start sinking into the grass and you muse suddenly about the madness of it all.  I think humans are pretty good at doing maddening things, that when you break them down you realize just how odd they are, and yet entirely entertaining!

Dressed Up

My slinky little dress is the February group gift from Sass.  You’ll feel entirely sexy in this gift, with it’s soaring hemline and mostly nonexistant top.  I’m not complaining, it’s giving me everything I need today!  To get yours, join the Sass group for just 10L, and then pay the vendor 1L which will be returned to you promptly.  The January gift is there for you too, and you may want to try your hand at the lucky boards while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Party it Up

Ishiku have some awesome gifts out too right now – this heart shaped martini glass is just the right touch of madness and whimsy I live for at the moment.  You can hold it in either hand, so you can pose it out to your heart’s content.  Also, if you’re looking for an a-mah-zing garden feature (or indoors, if you have super high ceilings!) this fountain behind me is yet another free group gift at Ishiku while you’re there.  I’ve added a photo below to show you just how huge it is, and yet only 9 Land Impact.  Sweet right?  Join the Ishiku group for free and you can grab these!

Excuse me, do you have any grey poupon?

If you have ever been to Lunaria, you will find that it is not just a home and garden store.  Lunaria has a nice selection of dresses and clothing as well.  I won this beautiful Alane dress from their lucky boards which is free for all group members; and the group is free to join as well.  While you are at Lunaria, be sure not to miss their ample selection of free group gifts and midnight madness boards as well.

I found this really nice Summer Eyeshadow by Altice for just 1L in their group gift section.  The group itself is free to join and there are plenty of other 1L makeup gifts for group members.  To complete my look, I found some Smudged Eyeliner from Gaia Rose.  This was also one of their free group gifts (the group is free to join.)

Well, Fab Folks… I made it almost one month into the New Year without giving in to the beach’s call. But, alas… here I am. Hey, I blame this new to me designer and the free mini dress!

This is the latest free gift from Sass made for the Teleport HUB Group. Isn’t it cute! It immediately made me think about warm days and waves and that did it. I was off to the beach! The mini comes with a HUD to pick one of five equally summery colors/patterns. Now this is a “Wear your nice panties” dress and is a bit cheeky in the back if you know what I mean.

What a lovely evening to spend swinging under the moonlight.  It is a little chilly, so I should have packed a sweater.  Oh well, maybe next time.  I don’t want to hide this really cute top I found.  It is one of the free group gifts at Cherry.  (The group is also free to join.)  There also a few other group gifts there as well that you should check out while you are there.

To complete the look, I picked up this cute  Skirt and Garters set by Bellatrix for 1L on the marketplace.  There are two versions of the garter set, one with straps and one without.  The best part is that the garters are unrigged, so you can resize and position them to fit your body.  I am also wearing Bellatrix’s Sapatilha Shoes, which are another 1L dollarbie on the marketplace.  They shoes a Mary Jane style shoe and sock combo, which seem to compliment the skirt well.

Rock Around the Clock Tonight!

Rock Around the Clock Tonight!
As the saying goes, everything old is new again.  Just look at me, I am ready to go to the sock hop with this cute ’50s style poodle skirt for free on the marketplace from Norma Underwood.  The skirt itself is unrigged, so you can position the skirt to fit your avatar better.  It also comes with a BOM layer that can be used for an underskirt.  The skirt was originally designed for classic avatars, but with a little adjusting, it can work on mesh bodies as well.

I needed the perfect vintage sweater to finish off the look, so dug through my inventory and put on the Ellen Sweater from Quinnty’s Aline first blogged about in this post. The cute, argyle pattern really made the outfit complete.

The Kawaii Energy

The Kawaii Energy

There’s a mall where I live that specializes in all things Asian.  You can get pretty much anything you need from that part of the world there (weirdly flavoured chips, Hello Kitty toasters, and as many sea cucumbers as your heart desires).  Back in the early 2000s, I went there with a good friend of mine and was introduced to the joys of insanely adorable stickers and stationery from Japan and Korea.  There’s not as much of it nowadays, it’s all mostly been replaced by cell phone covers – but I’m always trying to recapture the colourful girly-ness of it all!

Super Kawaii

Energy Weekend price is in full effect, which is exciting in itself (we love a good deal), but along with all the fun shopping also comes a few very nice free group gifts for those who join the free Energy Weekend Price group.  If you’d like to grab the HUD with all the info, you can head to the Buyer’s Room HERE.   I did so, and found all the info about this weekend’s free gifts quite easily.  My first stop was Absen where I got this semi-transparent dress (and matching boots, btw).  Very nice indeed!  Then what really got me in the Kawaii mood was this fun aura by Amazing.  There are three versions in the box, but I opted for the cute hearts, flowers and pandas.  They’ll trail behind you as you walk and fall about you if you’re just standing around.  Fun!  It’s all free – but only for the weekend, so don’t delay!

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Slink Original

It’s all too cute!

Keep it Coming

Keep it Coming

Happy third day of Christmas, FabFree!  I like to stretch out the holidays as long as possible, and I have a tendency to remind everyone that Christmas lasts alllll the way until January 6th.  With that in mind, it’s time for more gifts!  Let’s let those lights shine bright into the darkness and let the magic of Christmas keep going!

The Holiday Season

I’m all about the snow these days, and these goodies I picked up from The Holiday Season Fair made me feel a little bit like a daring nymph of snowiness.  We all know that the cold doesn’t quite affect my avatar (duh) so I pulled on this sweet sweater from Appliqué Chic (comes in 8 colours) and this cute little snowflake crown by Les Encantades (in five different hues, changeable by HUD) that I grabbed for free at the event.  No group join needed here, and there are lots and lots of free gifts to pick up.  The Holiday Season Fair is running until January 4th, so you’re sure to find something lovely!

Sweater Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Voluptuous
  • Ocacin
  • Venus

Oh and by the way, the hair I’ve got on is also free from Pr!tty.  If you missed the news about the free group gifts there, do check out my post about it HERE.

Keep jingling those bells!

Seasonal Magic

Seasonal Magic

I do enjoy Christmas a ridiculous amount.  It’s really not about the presents or all the bows and ribbons….to me it’s that magical feeling in the air.  The crisp cool wind, the quiet of the evenings and all the twinkling lights.  Magic!  I also like recreating that feeling when I’m inworld, and I think we have some pretty awesome gifts to do it with this year!

Deck the Dresses!

Nanika’s newest group gift had me oohing and aahing all over the place today.  It’s a simple white dress (well, fairly simple) that just happens to have twinkling fairly lights wrapped around it (the lights can also be worn separately)!  I knew I had to have it.  The group is only 50L to join and they have a pretty big wall of gifts waiting for you there.  I think that’s a pretty sweet deal!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Hair is a Girl’s Best Friend!

Pr!tty are spoiling their group members right now…don’t say I didn’t warn ya… there are 9 free hairstyles and accessories up on the wall over the fireplace in their mainstore.  I was pretty excited when I saw all the gifts, and I think you’ll be happy too.  Just join their group for free and you’ll also gain access to this pretty hairstyle as well as the headband I’ve got on.  There’s lots more to grab too!  Thank you Pr!tty!

Go create some magic, FabFree!
