By the Sea

By the Sea_003

Sometimes I prefer to browse the Marketplace for goodies when I’m in that “stay at home” mood. I found a couple of nice Marketplace gifties that are sure to brighten your day. Once I was ready to explore, I finished off with a group gift from one of my favorite Steampunk stores!

The perfect outfit

In doing a little Marketplace hunting I ran across this ZHO outfit by Petry Shop. It includes a shirt and skirt as separate pieces with nice detailing and great geometric textures! For only 20L, I snapped it up and didn’t have to leave my linden home. 🙂

Outfit sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Strike a pose

I also picked up a gift pose from a little Marketplace store called Naomi Shop. This pose, called Naomi Gift Pose, is perfect for photography, and is just 10 little linden. If you take pictures in Second Life, you’ll want to add it to your inventory!

My pretty seahorse necklace is a free group gift by Pixel Box. You join the Pixel Box group free, don your new group tag, and pick up this pretty necklace. It includes a texture change hud, which I’ve included a picture of below so you can see the variety of choices you have!

As an extra special touch, the necklace is mesh body sized, and includes sizes to fit the following mesh body types: TMP, eBody, Maitreya, Eve (Slim & Pulpy), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus), Slink (Hourglass & Physique), and Tonic.

A Little Love

A Little Love

A little love…

Love is usually Love’s territory… but when I spied this little Love tattoo by QuatreTTocs on the marketplace I couldn’t resist it! It’s a mere 49L and it’s the cutest thing. It’s not over the top and its a nice addition to any outfit. When you purchase it, you’ll get an applier for Maitreya mesh bodies as well as an Omega applier.

That perfect skirt

I hadn’t been to Entice for a while and when I stopped by yesterday, I realized there were all sorts of new gifts out that I hadn’t caught up on! My favorite was this free West End Girls Skirt. It’s just a skirt right? But its the perfect skirt! At least I think so. I paired it with a pretty white top that I had picked up while shopping at JellyRoll the other day.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Ride in the Country

Decked out country_001

I’ve been exploring again, and this time my dear friend took me horseback riding at a sim called Glanduin. You arrive and there are several areas on the sim where you can click a horse rezzer so that you can rezz a horse to ride to sight-see around the country side of the sim and its beautiful views!

I tried to put together a bit of a country girl look for the occasion, and with the help of a few lucky finds, I was able to do just that!

Three Tees!

Graffitiwear always puts out quality gifts each month, and August was no exception. They sent out three free fitmesh Tees with Maitreya autohide included as their August 2017 subscriber gift. (If you’re not a current subscriber just go to the store and slap that subsciber to get your gift.) For my picture, I donned the Tribal Tee, but I included a copy of the vendor add at the end of my blog post, so you could also see the Orange Tee and the Floral Tee as well. These fit like a charm and were so pretty!

Four skirts!

One Creations has out a generous free gift exclusively for FabFree group members. It’s a four pack of skirts in different colors. Like the Graffitiwear shirts, these skirts come in one fitmesh size, but I didn’t have any trouble getting them to fit as pretty as a picture. The four colors you get are brown (shown), red, blue, and black.

And shoes!

The Pirate Hunt also started today, so I stopped by Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes to see if there happened to be a pair of shoes I could work into my look. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the shoes for the hunt matched my outfit like a charm! For just 2L and a bit of hunting time, I picked up the Fara Fantasy flats. They come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreaya, and Classic feet, and could match a variety of outfits with their muted blue and brown color scheme.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Traveler’s Heart

Traveler's Heart

Wanderlust, beads, a banjo, a tambourine, tarot cards, and perhaps a crystal ball… A wagon, velvet and lace and layered skirts, poet shirts and dancing under the evening stars. If you just like the feel of traveler clothing, or if you are in the mood for a roleplay outfit to spice up your closet, this classic “traveler inspired” shirt and skirt with matching jewelry might just be the ticket you are looking for.

All in one place…

Shoenique Designs has evolved over the years. I remember when it was just a place to buy a unique pair of shoes. Now you can also get unique clothing and jewelry as well. I picked up this gypsy inspired skirt and poet shirt for free as an SLF & Offers gift on the gift wall. Just don your free SLF & Offers group tag and touch the gift board and this outfit is yours.

All the great sizes you need…

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya, Slink, Belleza

Matching jewelry too!

Right next to the beautiful outfit I picked up, was another generous free SLF & Offers gift from Shoenique Designs that matched the gypsy outfit just perfectly. The free Billy Jewelry Collection in Red Jasper includes a necklace, earrings (both shown) and a bracelet (not shown). I didn’t manage to get a close up to show you just how beautiful and detailed these pieces are (they match the skirt with all its colors just wonderfully), but if you click the Flickr picture, you can zoom in to see the jewelry at a close up to get a close look for yourself!

Happy (free) Shopping, Everyone!

A Gypsy’s Tale

A Gypsy's Tale

Hello FabFree! I’m back again today with a few more goodies! I wanted to show you a lucky letter prize I picked up at PoshTale. I really love PoshTale clothing. It’s wonderfully versatile… working well as either modern attire or as roleplay outfits. My top is a perfect example. This Kasai Fringe Top is a FREE lucky letter board prize at PoshTale right now and would work well for either genre. No group is required, just some luck!

This is an applier top and includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega. You also get two color huds for each. The plain and patterned hud each offer 8 color choices, for a total of 16 different tops with this one applier. If this top doesn’t suit you, there are 3 other lucky letter boards currently at PoshTale for you to try your luck at.

My hair is a FREE SLB13 gift from Hairology. We’ve been showing you lots of pretty hair gifts from Hairology… this one is called “Unity” by Damselfly, and like all the other SLB13 gifts won’t cost you a single Linden. It comes in two sizes (one is to fit larger busts) and is a full fatpack of colors.

A Gypsy's Tale 2

A part of me has always been a bit of a Gypsy at heart… and perhaps that is why I love this gift from Cellar Door so much. I picked it up as part of the SLB13 celebrations at We ❤ RP and it is yours FREE once you go to the Cellar Door booth there and click the cake and get your slice for your FREE gift. The box includes the necklace I am showing you, which is the rose gold color, as well as the necklace in black, bronze, gold, and silver.

I also picked up the Kunglers SLB13 gift while I was at We ❤ RP. It is a really elaborate and beautiful pair of earrings called Eliza Leaf. They are shaped like leaves and are embedded with small opals and have rose quartz wired to the tops of the metal leaves. They are really beautiful. This is a FREE gift that you won’t want to miss.

If you are a photographer in Second life and you liked my poses for this post, consider stopping by the Cart Wash Sale where you can pick up several very nice poses. My poses are by Picture Perfect. The Cart has single poses, couple poses, and even a group pose… all for only 10L each!

Flavor of the Day

Silver Lining

Thanks to Shoenique Designs and a lucky marketplace find… it seems that my “flavor of the day” has a silver lining! I stopped by Shoenique Designs to discover that they have out their June group gift and it is a real stunner. This lacy silver Cardigan comes in standard sizes as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink fits too! The design is just lush and the gift is FREE with your FREE group tag, so it won’t cost you a single linden.

I paired the Cardigan with a cute skirt I found on the marketplace by Mute. This is the Gisele Skirt and I am showing it to you in black… though it comes in a large variety of colors and prints… and at only 10L a pop you might well want to start a collection! The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes and has two cute little front slits at the thighs.

Silver Lining 2

While you’re at Shoenique Designs, be sure to also don your SL Frees & Offers group tag and pick up the FREE Meggy Silver shoes that are the gift out there as well. I paired them with the Shoenique June group gift and my new skirt and was really pleased with the look. These shoes will fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.
