Caught in Her Web

Spiderweb

Welcome to my Web…

What started out as planning just a quick meal out, turned into formal night out on the town, right down to me wearing a tux and a bow tie. How does she spin her web and get me to agree to these things?

… Said the Spider to the Fly.

Our matching gown and tuxedo comes from Kat’s Clothing Boutique as part of the Horror Hunt.  The Spiderweb Gown comes in Fitmesh XS-XL sizes with an alpha layer as well as mesh body specific sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Tonic, Ebody & TMP. The Spiderweb Tuxedo comes in mesh sizes XS-XL. This is the perfect couples holiday costume without the “costume”. All items on this hunt are just 1L each.The Horror Hunt runs through November 3rd.

gO Mia, !gO Mia!

GoGG
Hello FabFree Readers! I was so excited when a group notice came through the !gO inworld group announcing it’s newly released Mia Tops & Shorts because they are right up my fashion alley.  In Second Life, my natural go to items are casual styles that look comfortable.

In My Comfort Zone

!gO went all out on the texturing on the Mia Top with bunches and crinkles and wrinkles all in the right spots – and the shorts are perfectly worn in with realistic looking fray.  You can purchase these tops and shorts in a few different colours instore at an affordable price…  Perhaps you still have a group credit on file from previous offers 🙂

Or…  Get it for next to nothing!

You can pick up the top in the colour shown on my avatar for free as a group gift.  This gift does have the store logo on the bottom hem, but I sure don’t mind.  I doubt you’ll find it takes away from the look either.  This group has a very reasonable join fee of just 50L.

while you are there, grab the one pair of shorts (#6 as I am wearing) at half price – just 70L for a limited time!

Free Join Weekend at 7 Deadly s{K}ins

A Vision_001

A free weekend join!

It’s FREE! to join the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group this weekend and with their special apple harvest event going on during the month of August now is the perfect time to join the group if you are not already in it. What is the apple harvest event you ask? It’s an apple a day gift with your group tag! You pay the vendor 1L and get your 1L returned to you and in exchange get a gift every day for the month of August.

Today’s gift was the Vision Skin Package. It included three colors (the “orange” I am showing you in the picture, as well as two fantasy colors — pink and purple. You get Omega and Maitreya appliers for mesh bodies as well as Omega appliers for mesh heads! And with the free join weekend, all this skin was free today!

Hula!

I found a pretty applier top at Trashed as part of the Addicted to Appliers Hunt! It reminds me of Hawaiian Luaus, and tropical dances, and all things beachy. It only cost me 5L and a little hunting time, making it well worth it. The Omega applier is versatile for fitting many types of mesh bodies, and when paired with a pretty skirt, will have you ready for the beach or other occasions!

Purplemoon Creations has out a beautiful new group gift, complete with necklace, earrings, and Bento compatible gloves!

Gloves available with this outfit:

If that weren’t enough, the dress comes in all the popular mesh body sizes as well!

Put some dancing shoes on, this is a gift you won’t want to miss out on. There is a small group join fee of 50L for the Purplemoon Creations Store group, but the creator is generous with gifts and promotions, making this fee one that is definitely worthwhile.

RUFFLES!

Ruffles_001

I think Friday is my new lucky day! I hopped onto SL this morning and my inbox was full of notices of all kinds of new group gifts and a 50 Linden Friday special that I knew I had to have! I was so excited to put this look together for you that I could hardly wait to post it!

New pants!

Pure Poison usually puts out shoes as their group gifts, but this time around they set out a free gorgeous pair of black ruffle front shorts! As always, the group is free to join. I fell in love with these at first sight and actually made the rest of my outfit around this signature piece! When you open your gift package, you’ll find that the Haley shorts come in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Some browsing…

I did some browsing for the perfect shirt to go with my new shorts, and was in luck when I came across this beautiful Summer Color ruffled top by Toxic Bish. It is a free group gift and the group is free to join. I am showing it off in black in the picture above, but it comes with a texture hud that includes 11 colors and sizes to fit all the popular mesh body types.

Colors you get with this top:

  • White
  • Mauve
  • Brown
  • Hot Pink
  • Salmon
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Blue
  • Mint
  • Black (shown)

50 Linden Friday!

It’s Friday! Yay! The start of the weekend and special shopping deals! I stopped by Exile and picked up this beautiful hairstyle called “Run the World” in a pack of naturals (they also have out a separate pack of pastels for 50L too). It’s really pretty and I love the bangs! It’s a great and versatile hairstyle, perfect for many occasions.

Strike a pose!

I noticed oOo Studio Poses on my 50 Linden Friday list and decided to stop by there for a look. While I didn’t end up using the 50L pose for my picture today, I discovered that there were two free to all gifts sitting on the counter. You can buy the “My Life” pose used in this picture for just 0L, no group needed. It’s great for those of you into Second Life photography. The second pose out on the counter was a reclining pose, and was just as nice!

Just a Bite

Just a Bite

Today is all about FREE stuff! Free clothes, free jewelry… free food. And who can pass up free food? I stopped by a neat little cafe to take my pictures because free food calls for cafe pictures, right?

Color me pretty

BYRNE sent out an amazing free subscriber gift for July. If you’re already a subscriber, then this tied Flamejob Tie Top is already in your inventory (have you unpacked it yet?). If not, hurry to the main-store and slap that subscriber and get your free gift. It comes in two colors and all the traditional mesh body sizes that you need. As usual it has the BYRNE flair for color with that extra sheen on the texture that I just love. Color me pretty, but I love this top!

Just a Bite Closeup

Paired up

I paired my new free top with a pretty pair of free earrings from the Gacha Garden. These were a gift from Luas. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group to pick up the gift, but the group is free to join, so these earrings won’t cost you a single linden. They are nicely detailed without being overdone and I love the unique look to them. They are just a whole lot of fun!

Are you hungry?

My earrings weren’t the only thing I picked up for free at the Gacha Garden. Another free gift I picked up was the gift package of “Mouth Food” by Artisan Fantasy.

Included in the package is:

  • Mouth Food 1: Mozzarella, Tomato, Avocado
  • Mouth Food 2: Mozzarella, Strawberry, Basil
  • Mouth Food 3: Ham, Cheese, Pickle
  • Mouth Food 4: Feta, Cucumber, Tomato, Olive
  • Mouth Food 5: Watermelon, Feta, Basil (shown)
  • Mouth Food 6: Pigs in a Blanket

Nom, nom… off to nibble my goodies. See you around!

Bring Out the Bands

Tip My Hat

Bring out the big bands! Or at least the street performers and a good guitar 🙂 I’m ready for some music in this snazzy get-up I found!

The perfect dress.

If you haven’t checked Baby Monkey for group gifts lately, now is the time to stop by. The group has a one time join fee of 20L, but there are three really nice group gifts out, including this Striped Beach Dress which I couldn’t resist. The colors are just fantastic!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maireya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Hair Fair is still going!

I made another stop at the Hair Fair; this time at the opposite end, and visited the other side of the available sims. Exile has a free gift out that includes a style for both men and women (see guys, you aren’t left out after all!) and I struck gold with this free fatpack of hair called Evie. You’ll want this cute style for yourself!

Happy Shopping everyone!

A Quiet Spot

Quiet Time

Sometimes a little rest and relaxation with a good book and some coffee in a quiet spot is just what is needed to recharge our batteries. Luckily I’m dressed for the occasion.

Full Outfit… 10L price

The Loordes of London Cart at the Cart Wash Sale has a wonderful deal for bargain hunters if you love quality casual wear. Their English Garden Sets are available in 5 colors and for just 10L you get both the top and the matching shorts.

The top has a nice knit look with a cotton edge texture, and the shorts have a quality denim texture. You’ll get standard mesh sizes XXS – L with a quality alpha layer to go with it, if you are still rocking your system body.

See you at The Wash!
