Time Out for Beachcombing

Oceanside

Hello there Fabulouses!  Today, Ripley and I spent a lazy afternoon beachcombing over at the Sanctuary Isle sim.  I found a few pieces of sea glass to add to my collection, and the pupster found several seagulls to play with chase.  Eventually, they got him all tuckered out as you can see in my photo, so we decided to pause to tell you all about two gifts that I picked up for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.

Did You Say Free, Kat?

Yup, I sure did!  The latest free gift for Fab Free members from Petry Model Store is this adorable GSU Outfit, which is ideal for an escape to a sun-filled island.  The teensy top provides plenty of opportunity to soak up some rays, while still keeping your bits covered.  I really like the soft shade of blue!  The coordinating shorts feature a tied belt around the waist in a slightly darker hue.  Although they look absolutely perfect paired together, you can wear the shirt and shorts separately for added versatility.  Given the chilly temperatures in RL that I am dealing with, it sure was a treat to slip into a skimpy outfit and head to the shore!  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

A Bit of Sparkle and Shine

To complete my look, I added a Floral Pendant Necklace and Earrings from Beloved Jewelry.  This jewelry set is also completely free for members of Fabulously Free in SL, and I have to tell you, it’s just so pretty!  Compose of a large sapphire surrounded by delicate silvery petals suspended on an intricately detailed silver chain, this collection can be an elegant finishing touch to a formal outfit, or a bright pop of bling for a more casual look.  Either way, you will look amazing!  I pulled my hair back and snapped a close up so you can get a better look:

Sapphire Blue

I’m off to whip up something for dinner.  Too bad I didn’t start up a crock pot before we headed out the door this morning! We’ll be back soon with another fabulous find to share with our favorite readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Sometimes You Just Get Lucky

Sometimes in the Middle of Nowhere, You Find Yourself

Hello Fabulous Readers!  This afternoon, Ripley and I spent some time wandering through the fields over on the Yorkshire sim.  I just love the color of the sky, the  landscaping, and the general atmosphere there.  If you haven’t been, it’s a lovely place to visit!  My outfit today fit right in with the meadow due to the sprinkling of flowers across my skirt.  I picked it up over at Inventory Trends for just 30 Linden dollars.

A Fortunate Find

When Rip and I arrived at the Inventory Trends shop, I spotted the in store gacha machines over on the right as soon as I entered.  Always on the lookout for a bargain, I wandered over to take a look, and knew I just had to have the Diana outfit.  The machine is stocked with 3 different skirts and tops as separates, and two rare combinations with the skirt and top together in one package.  In my very first try, I was rewarded with a cute duo with a white crop top and white floral skirt.  I could have just as easily blogged that combo, but I really wanted to pick up the black version, so I decided to give it just one more shot (my famous last words with gacha machines…..just one more try….), and to my surprise, an inventory offer popped up on my screen with the words “Rare 1” and I did a little happy dance right then and there!  I quickly teleported home, then donned the strappy black crop top and cheery maxi.  The black shirt hugs your curves in a flattering way, and the long, generously cut skirt features bright blossoms in magenta and lime green.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop and give the machine a try.  If you don’t like the black version I am wearing, there are also a solid red, a solid back and a white skirt with a rose print to try for,  as well as red, pink or yellow crop tops.   For just 30L, it’s a fairly budget-friendly opportunity.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Here’s hoping you have a wonderful week ahead of you filled with plenty of good luck!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Holy Leggings!

Holy Leggings!

I’m coming up on my one year anniversary of blogging with Fab Free.  Can you believe that?  If you’ve been following my escapades at all for the past year, then you’ll know that I’m not necessarily one for demure clothing.  I like things to be a little bit weird, or a little bit crazy.  I suppose you could call my style “a bit different”.  If you’re down for something just a little different – well I’ve got some finds for ya!

Let me Entice You

My really fun holy leggings are a free gift over at The Makeover Room and are by Entice.  I totally love leggings, and when they’re a bit different, I feel like I’ve struck the jackpot.  These bad boys cost me 0L – I joined The Makeover Room group for free, and snapped them up!  They come in this very versatile rose hue, and are sized for Maitreya, Freya, Hourglass, Isis and Physique.

Always Sassy

Sass has their November group gift out – and I’m wearing the upper part!  It’s this little peekaboo top that kinda describes me to a T – cute with all sorts of random facts about The Lord of the Rings and the history of afternoon tea – aka adorkable.  Don’t even get me started!  Anyway, join the Sass group for 50L , pay the vendor 1L, which will then be returned to you.  It also comes with a sweet little pair of knickers.  Woo hoo!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

I’d just like to take a moment to bow my head in thanks for the men and women who have made sacrifices to serve their countries – 100 years since the end of The Great War, my friends.  Lest We Forget!

Chillin’ on a Dirt Road

Chillin' on a Dirt Road

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you are finding some time for chillin’ this weekend.  Ripley and I decided to go for a long walk along this country lane on Sanctuary Isle.  Nothing relaxes me and makes me smile more than hanging out with my best pal.  Before we headed down this old road, we took a detour over to Tori’s Stylez to pick up the perfect outfit for a stroll in the country.  It’s a free gift for members of SL Frees &Offers group (which is free to join), but you do have to pay 1 Linden dollar first, which will be instantly refunded to you.

Such a Pretty Dusty Rose

Featuring a cozy cardigan vest, tank, jeans, a belt (not worn) and the long knotted necklace, the special edition Jina outfit was just what I was looking for.  I love the pinks and purples in the sweater and the fact that the package included not one, but two texture change HUDs for the tank top.  That gives you sixteen color options!  The faded blue jeans hugged my curves and had cuffs that tucked neatly into my boots without poking out at all.  You can wear the cardigan by itself, paired with the tank, or wear just the tank by itself – talk about versatility!  The long silver necklace provided just the right finishing touch.  Although there were no versions designed specifically for mesh avatars, I was able to get the ideal fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara HUD.  With the soft color combination and well worn jeans, I could definitely see myself wearing this outfit in RL as well as SL.  It’s sure to become one of my favorites!

What’s Included:

  • Light blue jeans in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5
  • Belt in Ash, Brown and Copper (not shown)
  • Cardigan & Tank Combo in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Cardigan by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Tank by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Texture change HUD #1 and #2 for the tank
  • Long Knot Necklace
  • Alpha for cardigan and tank
  • Alpha for cardigan
  • Alpha for tank
  • Alpha for jeans

We’re off to finish our walk before we head out for shopping round #2.  Until next time, happy chillin’!

Let’s be Snarky for Halloween

Snarky Selfies
Hellooo Fab Freer’s! I stole Aline away for a little Trick or Treat fun.  We picked up a few treats from Squishy Fluff and The Little Bat. For more information on the SLS Trick or Treat Event, you can check out the SLS Trick or Treat website. It’s a fun “gacha” style even, but with no repeats! Each shop has tricks and treats to collect.

These cute “snarky” tops are one of the “Treats” at Squishy Fluff for the SLS Trick or Treat Event. They are just 50 linden per pull and come in several versions, each with a different snarky saying. Aline is definitely one of my favorite gal pals to be snarky with!
Mesh Sizes Included: Kemono BFT, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Ruth2

I think these cute leggings by The Little Bat were perfect for the t-shirts from Squishy Fluff. As Pru’s shirt says, leggings are pants! haha These fun Halloween themed leggings come in an omega applier. These are part of the SLS Trick or Treat Event prizes at The Little Bat. You can score yours for just 25 linden per play, and remember there are no repeats.

Dem Bones

Dem Bones

Hey Hey guys!  I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I am having a heck of a fun time putting together creepy cute outfits right now.  I suppose it’s because in RL I can’t really run around wearing skeleton themed clothing so much, or don a witches hat every day of the month!  SL is like one looooong party and everyone’s invited!

You go, COCO!

If you haven’t joined the COCO group, then what in the name of pants are you waiting for?  We’ve been ranting and raving about it for a while here on Fab Free, so hop on over there and join their FREE group.  There’s a wall full of goodies waiting for you!  The most recent group gift is this really cute layered top.  You can wear the black long sleeved tee and white skeletonesque shirt separately which makes for some cool outfit choices!  I may just wear the white top over a black dress and have a bit of fun with it all!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Make sure you add any photos YOU take in the Fab Free group on Flickr, because we totally love seeing your creations.

Well my bones are aching, so off I go!

We’re Spending Fall Break at the Beach

Day One of Fall Break

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m popping in tonight with a quick post which is rather time sensitive.  The adorable micro skirt and tied top I’m wearing in my photo are only up for grabs for a special price until tomorrow.  Anny’s Fashion is offering this cute set as their Syndicate Sunday offering for this week, but if you like it, you’ll have to quickly scamper over to the shop because the event only continues through October 9th.

I Know Fall’s Here, But…. Beaches in SL….

I’m as much into the Halloween season as the rest of the Fab bloggers, but Ripley has been pestering me to take him to the beach so he can indulge in playing hide and seek with seagulls, and a girl has to have a sweet skimpy outfit for the sand and surf, am I right?  The best part of SL is being able to visit a chilly autumn sim one moment, and then -poof- teleporting to a summer oasis the next.  For just 60 Linden dollars, Anny’s Fashion had me all set for a lazy day soaking up the sun in my new Loren outfit.   It features a sassy micro skirt (you’ll need panties under this one for sure) and a knotted cropped top.  The generous designer tucked a texture change HUD packed with 20 options for the skirt and 25 for the top inside the box, so you will be able to create quite a variety of looks with just this one purchase.  With both classic and mesh body versions, I’m sure you’ll find the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, SS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, there’s a pelican here giving me the stink eye, so I think maybe Rip overstepped his boundaries.  The gulls are up for a game, but pelicans can be a bit grumpy.  I’d better collect the rascal and head on home.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Taking Time Out for Some Leaf Peepin’

Time Out for Leaf Peeping

Hello Fabulouses!  One of my favorite parts of autumn (when I lived in a place that actually had four seasons) was going for a stroll in the woods with my pup by my side.  Although I still have a beloved canine, I have to get my leaf peeping fix on Second Life.  After seeing Aline’s posts here and here, Ripley and I decided to check out the Boo Bunny Hunt for ourselves, and came across this gorgeous cropped cowl neck top for just 1 Linden dollar.  

Time to Break Out the Sweaters

When I checked out the prize preview page, I really liked the picture of OMG Inc.’s Ladies Hooded Swarl, so I dusted off Rip’s tracking harness and we headed over to the shop to try our luck.  With the pupster’s talented nose (and the helpful hints page), we quickly discovered the hunt object, a piece of fall candy.  I was thrilled to notice when I opened the prize package that the designer had tucked a texture change HUD with 5 options for colors/patterns inside.  So, for just 1 tiny Linden dollar, it was like I got five different tops in one!  Although it’s not specifically designed for mesh avatars, I was able to get just the right fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  This poncho type sweater features a generous folded down cowl neck secured with two chunky buttons, a knitted ribbed texture, and an asymmetrical length which keeps your back toasty warm and allows a sexy glimpse of skin in the front.  I think you could also wear a tank underneath on really chilly days if you’d prefer.  Although I chose to pair the top with a rugged pair of leather pants for a casual look, I think it would also look fab when combined with a skirt.  The sky’s the limit!

Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • includes alpha layer for classic avatars

Ripley and I are gonna head back down the hunt path and see what else we can discover.  Yes, Pal, there will be some Ripley Snacks at the end of our journey!  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Putting the Boo in Booty

Putting the Boo in Booty

I can’t stop with the cute/creepy outfits.  They’re all over the place right now, and I’m loving every minute of it!  I know I said I’d ease in to the Halloween season, but really…can you blame me with all the cuteness around?

That Creepy Girl

Over at Quinnty’s, you’ll find this adorable cropped sweater and jeans combo!  It comes with an HUD full of cute options, but I went with the skeleton jeans and and hilarious “I put the boo in booty” sweater.  So adorable!  To grab your own set, join the Quinnty’s group for 50 Lindens.  It’s well worth it as you’ll find all sorts of other cute gifts there too!

The Dark Grid

The Dark Grid

Aline is being weird and spending her time in dark creepy places again.  I dunno, it seems to always happen this time of year!  Luckily she’s extra skilled at the art of kicking butt in cute outfits, so I’m really not worried about her.

Pack a Punch with Pacagaia

As I roamed through the dark recesses of the grid, I got my little mitts on the newest group gift over at Pacagaia!  The group is 100 Lindens to join at the moment, but not only do you get this pretty little romper (that has a fairly extensive colour change HUD with it), you also get a 250L gift card to spend in store!  I call that a deal!  Hop on over to Pacagaia and grab the awesome!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
