Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Where Flowers Bloom

Gathering Posies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to the peaceful quiet of the Elvion sim today after traveling down the path of the Spring Fling Hunt.  My pretty floral frock happens to be one of the prizes that you can uncover in this hunt for just 1 Linden dollar.

Gathering Posies

The sweet springtime print scattered across a cream colored background on this hunt prize inspired my pose today.  It made me think of an enjoyable morning spent wandering through nature gathering wildflowers.  Featuring a sleeveless design and a hemline that falls to the upper thigh, this dress will help you usher in sunny, warm spring days.  Its full skirt is loosely gathered and offers casual comfort for day to day activities.  To add this little beauty to your inventory, simply teleport over to The Sissy Bar, locate the rose blossom hidden somewhere inside, and pay just one little Linden dollar.  If you get stumped, there is a handy hint giver in the shop.  Honestly, the pupster and I found the hunt object without any trouble at all, so this should be quick and easy for you, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
  • Bangles
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Hello Fab Free. Today’s post is a little melancholy, though appropriately so. If you are, or ever were into EDM (Electronic Dance Music) you know who the man on Pru’s shirt. Keith Flint, probably best known for his work with the band Prodigy, took his own life early this week. Despite his often menacing appearance on stage, he has been described by those who knew him as a kindhearted soft-spoken gentile soul. Music will never be quite the same without his creative spark.

The designer behind the brand Beautiful Hustler has put out this top as a free group gift in tribute to the beloved singer, dancer, and front-man. The top comes in a single mesh size (not sure if it is fitted or standard), as well as mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Belleza (all), Tonic (all), and Slink (all) mesh bodies. The Beautiful Hustler group is free to join.

Also, Pru is wearing a recent limited time free group gift nose ring by PUNCH. This crescent-moon shaped piercing is technically rigged to fit the Catwa Catya head, however it fit Pru’s Genus Project Classic head without any issues. The piercing is free to all PUNCH group members, and the group is free to join.

Lastly I just wanted to put this out there, if you are feeling low, low enough that suicide sounds like a plausible option, please please please talk to someone. Anyone. Here is a link to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ .

Here are the details for this look:

Hair & Hair-base – adoness : ainia : brown
Head – GENUS Project – Genus Head – Classic Face
Skin – Essences Nari K
Nose Ring – PUNCH / Lune {Nose Ring} – Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join
Top – Beautiful Hustler – [bh] The Prodigy Top Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join
Bra – Maitreya Mesh Body – Lara Mesh Bra (Included w/Maitreya Lara Body)

Roses Are Red…

Roses are Red...

Happy Valentine’s Day Fab Free!  I hope you’re being spoiled with all the things you love, or perhaps you’re sulking in a corner eating chocolates and cursing cupid.  Either way, I hope you’re enjoying the day in some way!

Stupid Cupid

How cute is this shirt?  I grabbed over at Miss Chelsea where it’s the newest group gift!  There are two different versions in the box, this one I’ve got on (which, if you can’t see it behind my hair, says “Roses are red, violets are blue, you are garbage…. HA).  and one that says “Go to Hell” in pink (very cheerful for the day of love, I’m sure you’ll agree).  I love how the top has a peek of little fishnet at the bottom – it adds another fab detail to the look.  To grab your own join the Miss Chelsea group for 100L and find this gift (and a bunch of others) on the counter in the store.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Reign it in

My adorbly desirable heels are the newest group gift over at Reign!  I am fairly obsessed with the little heart details on the straps.  Hurry over to Reign and join their group for 250 Lindens if you haven’t already.  You’ll find these awesome shoes (which are sized for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya) right by the main counter.  Yay!

Happy V-day my darlings!

Skateboard Love


Skaboard Love

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so I thought why not show some mush and love on the blog. 😛 I’ve got my guy with me to help show this super sweet couples pose gift from the Pop Up Pose Fair and some matching his and hers hunt dollarbie prizes from the Love Me Not Hunt. Keep reading for all the important info.

The Pose – The moment I saw this super fun couple’s pose by Fashiowl, I had to share it with you! It is one of 3 free gift poses at the Pop Up Pose Fair. It comes with the skateboard props, a mirrored version of the pose, and the pose is adjustable. To get your copy of this gift and the others by Fashiowl, you’ll need to join the Pose Fair group. It’s free to join. Then you can click the gift boxes at each of the participating vendors and get your free gifts. Also, the Pop Up Pose Fair ends Feb. 14th, so don’t wait!

Waffles LMN Hunt Prizes – There are dollarbie his and hers hunt prizes for the Love Me Not Hunt at Waffles that are of course perfect for Valentine’s Day. The “Love Me” shirt for the guys comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars. The “Love Me” dress for the ladies at Waffles also comes in multiple sizes and will work for classic avatars. The LMN Hunt is a 1 linden hunt, so each prize is just 1 linden. The hunt item is a stem-less red rose. This hunt runs through the end of the month, so there’s still some time left to hunt the multiple floors at Waffles for these prizes.
Shirt Sizes Included: Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake, Slink Physique Male, TMP, Standard Mesh (S,M,L) + Alpha Layer

FabFree: On the road again
Hello there Fabulouses!  From February 7th-February 17th, the XOXO Hunt is on!  The XOXO Hunt is a little different than a normal SL hunt.  You can visit participating stores and click their love potion bottle icons (some of which are hidden, and some are in plain sight) to see if you win the prize or if you have to come back the next day and try again.  If you just can’t wait for your prize, you can purchase it for 50L instead.  Here’s a prize preview:  https://xoxohunt.wordpress.com/2019/02/07/xoxo-2019-its-on/

XOXO At Pixicat

The XOXO Hunt prize at Pixicat is the Breeze Tunic and it comes with a texture change HUD that offers white, back and red options.  I put a travelling boho spin on it with some bell bottom jeans, but I can see this beautiful piece going in so many different fashion directions!  Have fun with it 🙂

  • Maitreya Lara

XOXO

 

XOXO
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It seems to me like February is starting out with a bang, or in this case maybe a BYRNE! BYRNE had their February group gift out super early, and as always there is a men’s gift that matches the gift for the ladies. This long sleeve off-the-shoulder dress was too cute to pass up, and definitely too cute to not share with you. Though it wears really well on its own, I chose to pair it with a pair of black leggings and some sandals for a more casual look. This super cute XO dress by BYRNE also comes in a white version with black lettering. The BYRNE group is free to join, and you can get this free gift in the past group notices, or by visiting the main store.

Sizes Included – Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Here are the details!

The perfect skirt to go with my top (also perfect for summer neighbourhood trolling, of course) was yet another free group gift over at Egoxentrikax.  I joined the MLM Free & Offers group for free and got this cute skirt out of it!  Can’t say no to that, can you?

Hello Friend

Hello Friend

Hello Fabulouses!  As the weekend draws to a close, I just had to pop in quickly to share an adorable dress that I picked up as a free group gift.  Since this is a January gift, and the month is drawing to a close, I’m not sure how much longer it will be available.  So, if you like this off the shoulder style mini as much as I do, I’d recommend a trip over to the shop in the next few days.

It’s a Dress……It’s a Top

When I saw the Susie Dress as one of the free group gifts being offered to members of the Jumo Fashion Group, I fell in love with it immediately!  Featuring a lively botanical print (only available in this group gift) splashed across a while background, puffy sleeves and a generous ruffled hem, Susie reminds me of warm summer days.  It certainly allowed my shoulders to soak up some desert sun rays as Ripley and I made a new friend over at the Villa Baldeney sim.  Although it is termed a dress, it is very short, so I opted to wear it as a top instead.  If you were to wear it as a dress, you would have to make strategic use of an alpha layer to preserve modesty.  The frock is rigged mesh and is designed solely for mesh bodies.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you do have to be a member of the group, and the join fee, at 350 Linden dollars, is a bit steep, but there are currently four additional group gifts set out including earrings, a skin for Catwa and Omega, lipstick for Catwa and Omega, and a cute little purse.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Well, the sun is setting on this arid landscape.  Deserts can get quite cold at night, so Ripley and I had better head on back home.  Here’s wishing you a wonderful Monday tomorrow.  Until next time, happy shopping!
