A Shiny Shabby Day at the Beach

A Day at the Beach

Hello Fab Free, I hope everyone enjoyed a little extra February! I had a nice long weekend, and while it was fun, I’m glad to be back with a few more Shiny Shabby gifts to show you. The Shiny Shabby event ends March 10th, so you’ve got a little over a week to pick up the wonderful anniversary gifts and do a little shopping. There are so many great gifts to be had, it would be quite a task to show them all! I will include some additional links to the other Shiny Shabby blog posts from the Fab Free Team at the end of this post, just in case you missed them.

When Love first told me about the Shiny Shabby gift from Dead Dollz, I knew it was for me! It’s true, she knows my style and how much I love the chance to show some flirty fun pin-up clothing. This cute ruffled and polka-dotted bikini just screams pin-up. As with all the Shiny Shabby gifts, this cute mesh bikini is completely FREE, just stop by the Dead Dollz booth and pick it up. The gift includes the mesh top and bottom only, fitted specifically for the Maitreya Lara body.

Speaking of pin-up style, the Shiny Shabby gift from Elikatira is just that! The blunt bangs are one of the definitive pin-up hair styles. The high pony-tail just adds even more flirtatiousness to the look. I love it! This gift includes an exclusive color change hud with several options from the basic colors to some fun ombres. There’s sure to be something for everyone. Not to mention, the gift is FREE at Shiny Shabby, so you really can’t go wrong! I included a photo of the back of this hairstyle because I love the cute little curl in the back. It’s so sweet and girly, and one of those little details that makes this hairstyle from Elikatira special.

Finally, this pretty yellow peony is the Shiny Shabby gift from Lode. Peonies are my absolute favorite flower, so I had to show this one. The details are just gorgeous, as I have come to expect with items from Lode. This pretty single flower can be re-sized by clicking the flower. I think it is so pretty, I intend to have it sitting on one of the tables in my home once I’m done carrying it around! lol Yellow is such a great color for spring as well, so don’t miss this gift from Lode at Shiny Shabby.

Shiny Shabby Surely!

whc rispetto 1_001

whc rispetto 2_002

Hello everyone! It is I, your intrepid male freebie/cheapie hunter with a quick post for you. February will be over soon and will bring to a close two fabulous hunts: Menstuff and Jack Or Jill. If you have been putting it off, now is the time to start hunting! The amount of quality men’s hunt prizes available at the moment is impressive, and all yours for a little bit of effort! Even more time sensitive, though, is a pair of freebies that are available right now and will not be out very much longer.

Shiny Shabby is celebrating it’s anniversary on Second Life by throwing a big sales event featuring an unbelievable number of freebies. The Hoorenbeek stall at Shiny Shabby is offering as its free anniversary gift the Mesh Military Boots in Burgundy. As with all Hoorenbeek products, the texturing is amazing and the overall quality is excellent. I never pass up an opportunity to pick up free Hoorenbeek and neither should you, especially since this gift comes with both male and female versions in the box. The boots come in regular and short variations with the eyelets and laces texture changable via hud, and if that isn’t generous enough they also include the mesh jeans i am wearing and the mesh belt in two variants! While over at Shiny Shabby also check out what Amacci has put out as a free gift. The Zenith Eyes in Mocha are a striking set of Mesh eyes adjustable via hud. Additionally included are versions for those who prefer using legacy eyes. As you can see by the many Shiny Shabby items featured on Fab Free this week, it is an event not to be missed. Now you have two more excellent reasons to head on over there!

I started this post mentioning two great men’s hunts that are winding up this month. Rispetto Designsfree Jack Or Jill Hunt gift is the Devin MESH Jacket & Hoodie in Army. As you can see from my lead picture it is a very casual looking garment. Appearing to be made up of multiple layers, this one piece of integrated mesh is beautifully textured to look well-worn and comfortable. Coming in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, this is a free hunt gift definitely worth getting your hands on. Also on the Jack Or Jill Hunt is the free hunt gift from 7 Deadly S{K}ins. The River in Taupe skin is a very handsome skin. Even though I usually like to show off skins by getting close to naked, this time I decided to spare all of you the gratuitous near nudity and just tell you it’s a fine example of the kind of quality skins 7 Deadly S{K}ins is known for producing. When you are picking up these two hunt gifts look for the Menstuff Hunt prizes as well since both stores are also participating in that also.

That is all I have for you at the moment, but rest assured I will try to tempt you into going hunting at least once more before this month is over. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Polka Dots & Puppy Dogs

Snapshot_002

Good morning Fabulous Readers 🙂  If you thought we had depleted our stash of Shiny Shabby Anniversary gifts in all of the blog posts you have seen us do this week for the event, you’d be mistaken!  We have just touched the tip of the iceberg, with a ton more to go through!

Today you can see me wearing the Serendipity Dress by Storybook that is available as a free gift at Shiny Shabby.  This dress comes in the aged dot colour shown as well as a darker polka dot version.  Maitreya, Slink and Slink Hourglass sizes are included.

My Loving Nice Poodle can be found at this round of Kustom9, playing in a gacha machine at 65L per try.  I have one of these “needs to be carried around all the time, mini poodles” in RL, so I knew I needed one of these in SL too!

Chain Your Head, It’s Cute!

Snapshot_001Hiya Fabulous Folks! Yesterday I blogged a few of the  home furnishings Anniversary gifts  [HERE] that you can find for FREE at this new round of Shiny Shabby, and today I am back to share a few more 🙂  Most of my outfit today is made up of freebies that I found on the streets of this awesome round!

Starting from the top and working my way down…  I am wearing the Entwined Melody Hairstyle that I picked up as a free gift in a full fatpack of colours.  You can find the Jellybean Headchain as a freebie in front of the ieQED shop and it includes a texture change hud.

My Puff Sleeve Top and Boyfriend Jeans are both made by COCO.  I purchased the Puff Sleeve Top at the event, but these amazing boyfriend jeans are the free gift you will find at COCO’s display.

Last but certainly not least, are these super hot Congo heeled sandals made by Essenz!  They have newly released the Congo style in Maitreya and Slink versions for this special round of Shiny Shabby and are offering their peach as a free gift.  Bet you’ll want to go back and pick up more colours though 😉
