Chilly Gray Dawn

Gray Dawn

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  It was a bit of a chilly spring morning, so I sure was glad to have my new warm sweater and vest combination to wear on my walk with Ripley.  This lovely top is the latest free group gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from Loordes of London, and it can be worn solo as a dress or paired with leggings as I chose to do for my photo.  I love the deep crimson hue of the sweater and the playful folds in the extra long vest.  The free Exeter gift box includes sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh body versions.  At first, I didn’t think I would be able to use this cute combination because there wasn’t a copy specifically made for the Maitreya mesh body, but by wearing the Freya style and adjusting my alpha layer, I achieved a perfect fit.   I’m so glad I was able to pick up this cozy top/dress for the grand total of zero linden dollars!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L for classic avatars
  • Alpha layer
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Good afternoon Fabulouses!  You might be surprised how much power your own thoughts and actions make in not so stellar situations.  Positive intentions and focus on the things you have control over can make all the difference.  Squishy hugs to those that are struggling – hang in there!

Need a rosy little something?

Sometimes all you need is a rosy little something, and Ricielli has got your back… and your front, literally!  The Comfy Sweater as shown on my avatar is a Maitreya and Slink specific free group gift that you can pick up with your free group join.  This off the shoulder, cinched at the waist treat can be worn as a sweater or a dress depending on your mood and has the cutest sloppy sleeves.

Do You Remember?

Do You Remember?
Do you remember drive in movie theatres? Those were the best. If I could pick one retro bit of nostalgia to have a comeback, that would be it.

In my blog post today I am here to tell you where to get this smokin hot leather jacket /blouse combo for next to nothing!

RICIELLI, Of Course!

Ricielli is where you can find the Kirsten Jacket w/ Blouse for 15L as #1 in their instore Easter Hunt.  There are 20 hidden easter egg hunt icons hidden in the store all clearly marked by name (and not very tricky to find!!).

I have included the prize preview below so that you can see the prizes before you pick up the eggs, and an example of the hunt icon you seek!  I love hunts like this with prize previews, especially if there is a small fee because then you are not wasting your time looking for prizes you aren’t interested in and have only paid for the eggs you want! (I wanted almost all of them – they are fantastic lol)

Easter Hunt 2018!

15 / 15

15 / 15Trick or Treat?  What?

Hey Fabulouses!  Do you have some lindens burning a hole in your pocket?  You won’t need much…  Back in the busy season of November, Kat blogged about a The 2017 Halloween Hunt that Ricielli was hosting and she showed you a couple of the 20 prizes that you can pick up for just 15L each. I didn’t have time to stop in then, but now that things are much slower for me inworld, I took some time to visit today and they are STILL AVAILABLE! I went a little crazy and picked up several of them.  May I just say…  These are top quality items and fit like a glove to my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  I know you guys like to see me showing free stuff here on the FabFree Blog, but these babies are well worth the little bit they will set you back, and more!

Kat’s previous posts on this hunt:

What pieces am I showing off today?

You can see me wearing #5 which is the Gigi Blazer and Undershirt in forest and #13 which is a pair of leather leggings in black.  All dressed by Ricielli today for just 30L!  Go get them before they are gone!

Look Out Any Window

Look Out Any Window

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to the Ricielli Halloween Hunt, and discovered another gorgeous dress for only 15L.  The EOS II dress features a delicate lace trim all along the neckline, which adds a soft feminine appeal.  The deep midnight texture has a subtle sheen to it that highlights the natural folds in the skirt and the criss-crossed tie at the waistline.  This frock fits beautifully, and is an amazing bargain!  With elegant accessories, it is perfect for a date night, but is also just as wonderful for every day wear.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Isis
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Original

I’m not sure how long the Halloween Hunt will continue at Ricielli’s, so if you like this dress as much as I do, I’d recommend heading over to the shop as soon as possible.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Autumn Stroll

Walk With Me

Post Holiday Trick or Treating

Hello Fabulouses!  Even though Halloween is over, the Halloween Hunt is still going strong over at Ricielli’s.  Ripley and I moseyed on over today to check out this fabulous in-store event.  For just 15L per prize, you can scoop up 20 goodie baskets which contain footwear, tops, dresses and even some lacey undergarments.  My sexy mini is just one of the hunt gifts up for grabs.  The Bobbi Dress is hunt item #3, and she’s a real beauty!  With detailed extras such as the ruffled trim on the bodice and the neatly tied bow at the waistline, this frock will not disappoint!  The rich burgandy texture has a subtle sheen which highlights the realistic folds in the fabric.  All you have to do is search through the store, locate the basket containing item #3, and pay 15L.  The baskets are scattered throughout the shop, but they are quite easy to find, so in no time at all, you can collect all 20 gifts.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Slink
  • Slink Hourglass

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Paisley Perfection

Pretty in Paisley
Well, hello again Wonderful Readers!  Last Sunday, Ripley and I shared the Militar dress from Scandalize Creations with you in our blog post here.  While scooping up that darling camo mini, I couldn’t help but notice the other group gifts on the wall, so today we traveled back to Scandalize to pick up another Fabulous Find.

Pretty Paisley Print

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always had a thing for paisley.  There’s something almost hypnotic about the intricate, swirling patterns.  This free Revlu skirt combines my most beloved fabric motif with my top color choice, red – two wins in my book!  With its vibrant print, black waistband, and leg-flattering length, this cheery skirt is sure to remain a favorite in my wardrobe far into the future.  To add Revlu to your SL inventory, simply head on over to Scandalize, join the group for free, and tap the picture on the group gifts wall.

Knotted Top

Playing off the hue of Revlu’s waistband, the black, loosely knotted, leather crop top from Beck complements the skirt without overpowering it.  I like the sheen of the texture and the way the ends of the ties cascade down my midsection in soft waves.  Slender straps leave my shoulders bare to soak up some warm SL rays.  Although I enjoy brisk fall days, this summer-loving-girl still longs to frolic in the sun, and today’s outfit is perfect for just that.  Oh, how I wish I could control the climate in RL as I can in SL!  A short, simple Elements necklace from Wazzer Works, at The Chapter Four, perfectly accessorized my outfit.

Sensuously Strappy Shoes

While out on a relaxing bike ride with my canine pal happily trotting alongside, we passed by the Ricielli store and spotted a sign announcing the Halloween Hunt currently taking place. Each pumpkin in the hunt costs 15L, and these Kyra high heels are just one of 20 prizes to be found.  These slinky shoes come in three shades (blood, midnight, potion), and are the perfect footwear to glam up any outfit.

Listen to Your Heart, Not the Crowd

Time For a New ‘Do

On our way over to the Yasminia sim for a little exploration, Rip and I decided to take a quick detour over to the Hairology event after reading Pru’s beautifully written post here.  At Hairology, Ripley sniffed out this free, medium length, center-parted Bezoar hair from Mithral.  This is just one of many free hairstyles generous designers have set out for all to enjoy.  The package includes a color-change HUD jam-packed with 30 textures to choose from.  Sweet and sophisticated at the same time, Bezoar will flatter any avatar.

I hope you have spotted something in today’s post that inspired you to create a Fabulous Find of your own.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

10L Jacket Sneak Attack

Snapshot_009Hey there Fabulouses! Pru and I came across a couple of 10L jackets by Ricielli on the marketplace that we both think you MUST have!

We headed out to take some photos for you so that you could get a good look at them, at least that’s what I thought we were headed there to do!  Low and behold, Pru had other plans and got me good with a snowball sneak attack.

I am so going to get her back for this the next chance I get and it will need to be done when she least expects it, but for now… a truce.
Snapshot_006Now about those jackets… Pru’s Ricielli jacket is called Bryn and is available in a two pack of pink and blue which you can find [HERE].  The jacket I am wearing is called Bo and is available in a pack of seven colours [HERE].  Again – both for just 10L!

Bye Bye Summer

Snapshot_003
Got some spare lindens kicking around?  You won’t need much – Ricielli is hosting a Bye Bye Summer Hunt and there are 20 very easy to find pink ball hunt icons hidden around the store all priced at 15L each.  Some of the hunt items come with texture change huds or multiple colour options, which makes these items a steal at such a low price.

In my post today I am showing off the prizes from #8 which is the HLIN Dress (standard mesh sizing) and clutch and #18 – the fitted mesh VIVI High Heels (Maitreya, Belleza and TMP).  I am not sure how long this hunt is due to last, so head down there ASAP and find check out the hunt poster at the landing point to see all of the prizes before you pick them up!
