A Vintage Vixen

A Vintage Vixen
Hello Fabulous Readers!  Have you checked out the Fifth Anniversary Celebration for Bundles yet?  This autumn-themed event runs through September 25th and features 31 designers, many of whom are offering gifts along with their displays.  I have to admit, despite my name, I do start longing for the crisp days of autumn as the heat of summer drags on.  What better way to anticipate fall than to wander around a sim drenched in scattered leaves and pick up free goodies along the way?

Simply Chic

One of my favorite of the free items at Bundles is this Lace Dress from Nilsy.  With its pale pink hue, semi-sheer lace, and full skirt, this frock is the picture of classic elegance.  I don’t know, maybe I am a bit of an old soul, but I love vintage style!  With elbow-length sleeves and a high neckline, it will transition beautifully as summer fades away so I will be able to wear it well into fall.  Since this gift is completely free, you can add a new outfit to your collection without making the slightest dent in your budget!

Sizes and Mesh Compatibility

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Mesh Fit in XS, S, M, L, SL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until next time,

Gee, I Love this Blog!

AnaSTYLE @ Girls Heaven Event June

Hey Gang!

It’s grey and gloomy as usual where I live so I am soaking up the sun in second life!  Time to put on a cute dress and take a nice walk outside in the sl air!  Ahhhhh.

So as I approach my six month mark here at Fab Free (yes six months have just flown by!  Don’t you agree?) I wanted to revisit a couple of my favorites that have  been blogged, make sure you haven’t missed them!  Cause they are both oh so freaking cute!!!  Squeee!

Gee, I love your hairdo!

Some of you may not be old enough to remember, but there was *actually* a shampoo once upon a time called “Gee your hair smells terrific!”  Literally!  They named it an entire sentence!  Things have gotten a bit fancier in advertising and naming of products since those days.  In second life, we never have to wash our hair, and we can change the style and color in the blink of an eye, so it helps when you have lots to choose from!  I’m wearing a free group gift from Kuni, that has been blogged several times before, including my me (in pink!), and you can click those below, if you want to see how it looks in brown or black, too!), but I just love the braid and the whispy bangs!  The group is free to join, so that makes this cute must-have hair a, well, a must-have!

Boho Fringe!

The second is these shoes from ROC that I saw one day on marketplace and have blogged once before, but I just love them since the day I saw them and I wear them every chance I can, when I am not being my barefoot self, that is!  They go for a mere 50L and they fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Gee, I’d love to stay but I’m off to find more goodies to bring y’all!  Hope your Monday has been painless!

Shopping from Home: SL Style!

tea_002

Hey gang!

As fun as it is to run ourselves ragged shopping like lunatics in world, there is a certain satisfaction in staying in the comfort and seclusion of your cozy sl home and scooping up bahgains anyway.  I’ve brought a handful of such goodies here to show you today.  (marketplace show n tell time kiddies!  woot!)  From clothing, to props to decor, you can find it all, and find it I did!  I spent a whopping (are you ready?) 134L and I got a dress, shoes, teacups with multiple poses and wall decor.

Lets begin with the dress.  I got this soooooper cute dress for only 65L from DejaVu Designs.  It comes with a HUD that has 40 colors and comes in these sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Classic

These cute tiptoe sneakers, which I Lurrrrvvveee, come from ROC which has so many cute affordable shoes, I barely know where to begin (I have my eye on another cute pair I think I will scoop up next time and blog).  I got these for 49L, they come with a HUD that gives you 25 color choices so your cute sneakers will *always* match, and they fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Now the little teacups with poses come from LISP Bazaar (I love their stuff!), they cost 10L and come with a choice of 6 really cute poses and you have your choice of steaming or not steaming.  I wanted my tea to be hot cause it’s been chilly, so I chose steaming.

Last but not least, see those totally adorbs string lights hanging on the wall behind me?  Those are from The Black Forest and they cost me 10L.  They are really sweet in person, especially considering the price.  1 prim for each “curtain”.

Til next time, I hope you are all enjoying the FabFree hunt!!

Cozily yours,

❤ Arielle

Road Trip to Nowhere in Particular

Road Trip

Hello hello Fab Free, I hope you’re all surviving first life well enough. As for Second Life, Blue and I decided to throw a few things in a bag and jump in the car for a much-needed getaway. Like most of us, we decided we could use a little change of scenery. This little diner was an impromptu stop along the way on our road trip to nowhere in particular. We got out stretch our legs, take in some scenery, grab a bite to eat, and of course take a few photos. After all, is it really a vacation if you don’t have a few social media worthy photos? Hah, just kidding.

The pose we used for this snapshot is a free Stay at Home Club gift from The Owl. This free couples pose by The Owl comes with pose balls and individual pose animations. No group is needed for the Stay at Home Club gifts. My t-shirt is a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. I picked it up at Sass. The over-sized casual tee by Sass says “Actually, I can.” and comes in the color shown, and has a matching pair of panties included. The last of the Stay at Home Club gifts for this post is a set of eyes Blue is wearing from Madame Noir, which are of course free. Blue’s short-sleeve button-down shirt is also a free gift. It comes from Ascend and is free for all SLF&O group members. The men’s short from Ascend comes in the color and print shown, and requires the free-to-join SL Frees & Offers group tag.

Alright Spring, Do Your Thing!

Spring is in the Air

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your Monday treated you well.  If not, I’ve got just the thing to cheer you up – how does a free outfit sound?  My jacket, knotted cropped top and leggings all came as a group gift over at the Scandalize shop.

Spring is in the Air!

Ripley and I took a trip over to the Fox Paradise sim and enjoyed the ocean view while we frolicked in the green meadow.  The Elva Outfit is just right for those early spring days where the morning starts out a bit brisk, but then temperatures warm throughout the day.  All three pieces are worn separately, so as the mercury rises, you can shed the jacket and just sport the sexy white top alone.  I love it when an outfit is flexible like that!  Speaking of flexibility, the package includes two different versions of the jacket (the blue one I am wearing as well as an all white one) and two variations of the leggings – solid white and ombre.  You even get a HUD with a ton of options for altering the color of the buttons on the jacket.  To pick up a copy of Elva for yourself, you need to be a member of the Scandalize group, which has a 100L join fee, but there is an entire wall full of gifts up for grabs, as well as some lucky boards, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Paw-sitively Perfect

While we were shopping at Grumble, Ripley wandered over and started sniffing a tiny little pet bed and bone, which just so happened to be the hunt object for the Puppy Love Hunt.  The hunt is technically over, but luckily for me, the prize at Grumble is still available.  For just one Linden dollar, I scooped up a bauble which was right up my alley.  If you like fur babies as much as I do, this paw print dangling from a silver chain might be the ideal finishing touch to your outfit.  Don’t delay, though, because I’m not sure how much longer this will be up for grabs!

That’s a wrap for tonight.  Until next time, happy shopping (and hunting)!

My Valentine

My Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day, Fabulouses!  As you can see, I’m spending the holiday in the company of my true Valentine:  Ripely.  I found the perfect clothing for today as I was moving along the trail of the Puppy Love Hunt.  For just 1 Linden dollar and a bit of time hunting around the Southern Sass shop, I came away with a complete outfit.  Now that’s what I call budget-friendly fashion!

Casually Cute

To add the Puppy Love Sweatshirt and Skinny Jeans outfit to your inventory, you’ll be looking for the tiny pet bed concealed in the Southern Sass store.  The prize package includes a cozy sweatshirt with three quarter length sleeves and a cropped hemline.  Two red paw prints and the text “My dog IS my valentine” proclaim to the whole world who holds your heart.  Yep, the pupster certainly has me wrapped around his paw!  Coordinating skinny jeans match the red in the shirt’s graphic, and round out the outfit.  Each piece is worn separately, so you can mix and match with other items in your wardrobe if you like.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Our wish for you on this day of love is that you have a wonderful holiday today.  ❤  Until next time, happy hunting!

We’re Members Just for Today

When in Doubt, Wear Red

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a fantastic Saturday.  In RL, Ripley and I spent some time at a home show today, dreaming about renovations and all the things we can’t afford to do to our house.  So, when we got home, we popped onto SL and found a bunch of free gifts over at The Seasons Story.  I’m so glad there are such generous designers in SL!

Go Red!

Although I enjoy chatting and being around other people, I do have to admit there are those days when I just want to quietly take a walk with my pal and shut out the rest of the world.  The free sweatshirt that I picked up at the Moonstone display at The Season’s Story makes this abundantly clear with its printed message about the Anti Social Club.  This over sized hoodie is perfect for a brisk fall day spent exploring nature.  I really like the casual style and the bright crimson color.  The only quirky thing was the top forces you to have one hand in your pocket, which meant I needed to alpha out one of my hands.  On my Maitreya body, I could only alpha out both hands, so I dusted off the Slink hands I had in my inventory, and popped on the right one.  Problem solved!  Since the text on the top and the stripes on the sleeve are white, I decided to pair my new sweatshirt with white pants, but I think it would look great with denim as well.  The free gift package contains only one version – Maitreya – so if you have a different mesh body, this may not work for you.  However, since the gift is completely free, it may be worth a shot to pick it up and try – you might get lucky!  You have to be a member of The Seasons Story Event group to receive the gift, but there is no join fee, so I’d say give it a go!

I’m off to try on some of the other Fabulous Finds I scooped up at The Season’s Story.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Somewhere in Springfield Wood

Strolling in Springfield Wood

Hello Fabulous Readers!  After a long week at work, I’m looking forward to a couple of days off with my pal.  As soon as I logged in to SL, I slipped into this comfy outfit, and we teleported over to Springfield Wood to decompress and take in the beautiful scenery.  Aren’t the wildflowers in this meadow gorgeous?

Just Right for Friday Casual

My Laura Outfit today is the latest free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from MOoH!.  With its frayed capris and striped top, it was perfect for our stroll through the sim.  I really liked the way the soft shade of blue in the striped top coordinated with the worn denim pants, but if blue is not your color, the generous designer included a HUD with three other color choices – gray, pink and red.  The open top is fastened with two buttons in front and features half length sleeves and a stand up collar.  Since the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you’ll find just the right size for you.  You can mix and match these separates with items in your inventory for added versatility.  Best of all, this set is completely free.  All you need to do is activate your Fab Free Group tag, teleport over to the shop and click the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes separate alpha layer for top and capris)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

While I was typing up this post, Ripley spotted a squirrel frolicking nearby and trotted over to investigate.  Apparently, Mr. Squirrel was not in the mood for company and scrambled up a tree.  Now the pupster is parked at the base of the pine, barking and whining.  I think I’d better go intervene so the woodland creature can get back to gathering stores for the coming winter.  Until next time, happy shopping!
