All Things Bright and Beautiful

Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I told you about a prize I collected in the Free Dove August Hunt.  I’m back again today with a gem of a dress that I discovered completely for free on the same hunt trail.

Sparkle and Shine

Hidden somewhere on the Free Dove sim, the flirty Lacy Outfit from Emerald Couture is sure to please.  With a delicate floral overlay applied onto a solid black background, high neckline, and sheath-style cut, this little number would be perfect for a date night.  I love the added border of silver trim on the hemline!  The package includes coordinating ebony, lace-trimmed heels with delicate ankle straps, so you will be all dressed up and ready to go without having to search for matching shoes.  To scoop up this hunt prize (#3 from Emerald Couture), you will need to be a member of the Free Dove Group, but it has a very budget-friendly join fee of zero Linden dollars.  The hunt continues through August 31st, so there is plenty of time remaining for you to do some hunting of your own.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP

Until next time, happy hunting!

Sunny Days Ahead

Sunny Days Ahead

Hello there Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve got some terrible wanderlust. I’ve also been wanting a reason to dress in something nicer than sweats and oversized t-shirts. Then I realized something, we all have the perfect excuse to dress up if we want to, ourselves. With ourselves as the reason, I have three free gifts to share with you as the how. Varsity and La Perla each have free Stay at Home gifts that match well together. These free posh sunglasses by Veyard complete the look perfectly. You know how this works from here, keep reading for more information and check out the credits at the end.

Varsity

My skirt and cropped top are the free Stay at Home Club gift at Varsity. This cute and classy outfit comes in three sizes, and has a color change hud for the top and the skirt. In the color change huds there are six solid colors for the top and the same six colors for the skirt so you can mix and match. There is no group needed for this free gift.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

La Perla

These cute heels are a free Stay at Home Club gift as well. You’ll find them at La Perla. The black and gold details make them stylish and unique, the red sole makes them timeless.  These pretty shoes come in 5 sizes and should be able to be worn by classic avatars though they do not include a shoe base. Like all Stay at Home gifts, there’s no group required for this freebie.

Sizes Included: Slink, Maitreya, Ocacin, Belleza, Standard Mesh L/R

Veyard

Finally, these sunglasses by Veyard were actually the inspiration for my entire look. I love the sleek black shades with the detailed gold floral accents. They are a free gift, no group needed, at the Men and Women Jail event. You can pick them up for free for the duration of the event at the Veyard booth.

Flirty Florals and Spring Ribbons

Sweet Spring

Hey there FabFree! The warm weather I have been having in my part of the real world this weekend, (and when I say warm… I mean +13 Celcius, and after the -30 we have had all winter – this feels like suntanning weather!) inspired me to put on a little spring outfit inworld.  You know me…  I always try to work something free in, and today it’s my shoes and skirt, which I will tell you about below!

Flirty Florals

The Mint Rose Flirty Skirt I am wearing today is available for free in a lucky board at Petite Mort!  You’ll need to be a member of the Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP group, however this group is currently free to join.  There are actually four boards, and you can see two of the other prizes previously blogged on FabFree [HERE].

Sizes Included:

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

Spring Ribbons

Previously on FabFree, Aline has told you all about the new group lucky boards at Empire (with a free group join) in her Fly Gal Post [HERE], and while she scored up some sweet bow flats, I won the Lavender ribbon wedges!  You can fully customize these beautiful sandals with a texture change HUD that allows for 20 different colours.  Remember, you’ll need to be in the free to join Empire group to participate in the group lucky boards, not the group with the fee.

Sizes Included:

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

A little trick:  If you have trouble finding a group joiner to pick up a group gift or participate in a group offer such as lucky boards or midnight manias, simply go into edit on the offer board or gift and click on the group it is set to to open up the profile.  It works “most times”.

Do You Believe In Fate?

Snapshot_002
Hello there Fabulouses!  I believe it was purely fate that these two amazing royal blue group gifts by GOS Boutique and Blanco came out at the same time.  These two items colour match so perfectly, it would seem as though they were planned to be released together, but I’m sure…  it must just be a coincidence!

Fate only takes you so far…

Once you’re there, it’s up to you to make it happen, so go grab these gifts!

Your first stop is to Blanco to pick up the beautiful halter Stasia Dress that is a free group gift.  Blanco is a small shop right next to Scandalize and the gift is very easily found as soon as you enter.   I am displaying this dress in a gorgeous shade of blue, however it does come with a texture change HUD that allows for 10 solid colours and 3 prints.  This group is free to join.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Isis, Freya

Fate pulls you in different directions

It’s a good thing that it does, because you’ll need to take a teleport to GOS Boutique to grab the latest group gift called Karrueche in the colour of Snorkel Blue. These shoes come in XXS-L sizes as well as fits for Maitreya and Slink mesh feet.  The group is 250L to join
