There’s nothing quite like a little black dress for all occasions.  I found a really fantastic one, and I can truthfully tell you that anywhere I’ve worn this one, I’ve gotten compliments (no lie).  Read on and I’ll tell you where to grab it!

Feeling Lucky

There are some lucky boards over at Scandalize right now!  The group is currently 100L to join, but there are so so many gifts that it is beyond worth it.  The five lucky boards are for the month of February, so I’m not sure how long they’ll be around after the month comes to a close.  I picked up the absolutely lovely Axcid dress when my letter came up, and it is fairly versatile as it comes with the longer pencil skirt or a short version, and you can decide to wear the sleeves or not.  Go grab one yourself!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Have fun turning heads!

A Devilish Sale

A Devilish Sale

I don’t know if you’ve all noticed or not, but it’s sale central in SL right now!  Even Love is showing off her discounted goodies today.   Who can resist a good sale?  Usually in RL I avoid them like the plague, since they’re often a centre of mania for people seeking out a deal.  Shoes fly through the air, people play tug of war with a sweater, and bewildered passers-by duck when a rogue earring escapes the clutches of a frenzied shopper.  Luckily in SL, though we sometimes succumb to “gotta have it” mania, usually all we have to do is TP in, click, and TP out.  Very civilised!

Now Get Outta My Way!

Forgetting everything I’ve said above, hurry up and get over to Psycho Barbie!  There are several items on sale by the front counter for 35L each!  I got a whole fatpack of dresses for one low price!  There are lots of other creepy-cool finds there too, so get over there before the sale ends later this week!  I chose the strappy dress that comes with an HUD to change to a bunch of different black and gothic looks!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Take the Tram

My silvery locks are courtesy of Tram.  I mixed two group gifts together – the hair and the little horns (made out of hair!) that I added on top.  I thought it echoed a bit of an evil mood from within…or something like that.  Cute, right?  The horns come with an HUD with several colour options so you can add them to any of your hairdos.  The Tram group is FREE to join, making this hair look completely free! Yay!

Watch out for flying shoes!

One Ring to Rule Them All

One Ring to Rule them All

Ok Fab Free, brace yourselves because I’m about to reveal the depth and breadth of my nerdiness.  I am a MASSIVE Lord of the Rings fan.  I mean, like…super huge.  And I’m NOT talking about the movies (which were visually stunning but messed my fave story up!).  I have probably read the books about 20 times, and I can recite all sorts of things upside down and backwards, while muttering something about potatoes being the Gaffer’s delight.  Yup, I’ve finally revealed my true self to you all.  Anyone who was under the illusion that I was cool, welcome to the real world!

The Quest for the One Ring

Right, so I did have a point in revealing my love for all things Middle Earth.  The Enchantment hunt is going down right now all over the grid, and you have to keep an eye out for the One Ring!  I found two super awesome things in my journeys – my very Elven (ish) lingerie (sized for Maitreya) by Have Unequal is the first.  I feel that it wouldn’t look completely out of place in Lothlorien…well, at least in certain situations it wouldn’t!  The second item is my lovely tumbling curls by DeLa that I’m sure Arwen would be totes jelly of.  Best of all, the prizes are all FREE so you can gather your Fellowship of friends together and hunt down all the precious rings!  You can find all the hunt info HERE.

As they say in Elvish, “Elen sila lumenn omentielvo” – a star shines on the hour of our meeting.
Yup, totally a nerd.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – E. Vary & Mangula


Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s time for another designer of the week post. This one is a little different in that we kind of get a two for one deal! The Mangula and E.Vary brands are created by the same designer. The E.Vary shop offers a range of skins, shapes, and cosmetic enhancements for female avatars along with a few mesh and applier clothing items. The Mangula shop offers unique clothing for female avatars. At both shops you’ll find some great gifts and of course shopping finds. The E.Vary shop is a bright and open shop, where the Mangula shop has a surreal cloud-like atmosphere. Both stores have similar information desk areas with info about the store group, social media, and associated groups and events. These shops also share an in world group, the * E.Vary * group will get you group gifts and notices for both the shops. Currently the group is free to join.

At the E. Vary shop there are several free group gifts consisting of female skins and cosmetics. You’ll need the group tag for these, however as I mentioned before, the group is free to join at this time. Over at the Mangula shop you’ll find several other group gifts such as the free Fabulously Free group gift. You’ll need your Fab Free group tag to get this cropped top gift at Mangula. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Each of the gifts in this area of the Mangula store require a specific group tag. Finally you’ll see a few gift boxes hanging out with a pair of star balloons. There’s no group needed for these free gifts however you will need to be a member of the store’s subscriber group. Click the gift, wait while it verifies your subscriber status, and once verified your free gift will be sent to you. Each of these freebies also appear to be ladies clothing. Happy Shopping Fab Free, and I hope you enjoy the up-coming weekend.

Roses Are Red…

Roses are Red...

Happy Valentine’s Day Fab Free!  I hope you’re being spoiled with all the things you love, or perhaps you’re sulking in a corner eating chocolates and cursing cupid.  Either way, I hope you’re enjoying the day in some way!

Stupid Cupid

How cute is this shirt?  I grabbed over at Miss Chelsea where it’s the newest group gift!  There are two different versions in the box, this one I’ve got on (which, if you can’t see it behind my hair, says “Roses are red, violets are blue, you are garbage…. HA).  and one that says “Go to Hell” in pink (very cheerful for the day of love, I’m sure you’ll agree).  I love how the top has a peek of little fishnet at the bottom – it adds another fab detail to the look.  To grab your own join the Miss Chelsea group for 100L and find this gift (and a bunch of others) on the counter in the store.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Reign it in

My adorbly desirable heels are the newest group gift over at Reign!  I am fairly obsessed with the little heart details on the straps.  Hurry over to Reign and join their group for 250 Lindens if you haven’t already.  You’ll find these awesome shoes (which are sized for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya) right by the main counter.  Yay!

Happy V-day my darlings!

Pink all Over

Pink all Over

Hey Hey Fab Free!  Tomorrow is the big day – the day of pink, red, candy hearts and roses.  I’m not really one for all the run-of-the-mill gloopy Valentines, but sometimes it’s nice to get dressed up all fancy and look the part, don’t you think?

Queenz for a Day

There’s a mini hunt going on over at Queenz!  All you need to do is find the two Teddy Bears in the shop (they contain 12 outfits in all), which are both FREE!  Inside you’ll find a whole bunch of outfits in pink, red, white and burgundy that all look fabulous on.  I chose to show you the Fortune gown that comes with a gorgeous fluffy stole as well!  Completely beautiful, and completely free!

Here are the hints!
Hint 1: Pink Mannequins
Hint 2: Salon Chairs

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Katena Bimbo
  • Katena Regular

Red and Pink

Red and Pink

I always thought that red and pink couldn’t go together.  Wasn’t there always talk of red and pink clashing, and how if you had red hair you could never wear pink?  Looking at all the offerings right now that are swirling these two distinguished colours together with reckless abandon, I’d say that theory was completely bunk!

Taking a Bite out of Love

The Love Bites Hunt continues this week (until the 17th) and you really can find all sorts of goodies on the sim.  It may take you a bit of time and patience (and possibly some eye drops, oy veh), but boy oh boy is it worth it!  I found some really fantastic stuff – my “Cupid is Stupid” top (with such lovely long sleeves, amirite?) and cute heart-adorned skirt are by Loki and cost me 25L each and sized for Maitreya bodies, and my super sweet heart-shaped glasses are by Dazed and were 25L as well!  Can’t say no to that!

Go forth and make some bold and romantic colour choices!

Fade Into You

Fade Into You

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that’s true

Do you ever get into these weird “I need to listen to music from high school” moments?  I’ve been falling down the 90’s alternative hole for the last few weeks and it’s bringing me back to the days when we wore flannel shirts, while sitting on the front steps of the school drinking Jolt Cola.  Luckily I’m not actually doing any of these things, just getting all maudlin and hanging out in my bedroom listening to Mazzy Star and Smashing Pumpkins.  At least I’m staying away from the flannel shirts for now!

A bit of Vanity

Ok, I’m done ranting.  Let’s get to the freebies!  I found this super cute loungewear set by Scandalize and Noir over at the Vanity event!  It comes in this sweet pink colour, either with the ombré I’ve got on, or just plain pink.  Cute right?  I got it by joining the Vanity group for free and clicking on the group gift vendor that’s hiding in the corner.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Psycho Killer

There’s a new group gift at Psycho Barbie!  My cute leg tattoos come in three versions: super faded, slightly faded and dark and fresh.  I went for the middling version so you can get a fair idea of what they look like.  They come with an Omega applier.  I got mine by joining the Psycho Barbie group for 50 Lindens.  There are a few other group gifts there too to pick up while you’re at it!

I’d better stick some upbeat music on before it’s too late!

Late Afternoon


Late Afternoon

Hello Fab Free’rs! Sometimes you just need to sit and have a quiet moment. Yesterday was that kind of day for me, nothing sad or unfortunate, just some quiet time to reflect. It was good, and needed. I also had a little bit of time to pick up some recent group gifts that I’m happy I get to share with you. Keep reading and as always, I’ll give you all the information about each of these fabulous finds.

The Outfit – Pru’s cute froggy top and plaid pants are the latest free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by C!L. You can’t see it as well in my photo, but the shirt is cropped and knotted in the front. I love this for a cute casual Valentine look. The outfit comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic avatars. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, you should be! The Fab Free group is always free to join.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs -XL), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), TMP

The Bracelet Hot Elegant Clothing or “HEC” put out a cute bracelet set out as a new group gift. It comes in a few sizes to best fit specific mesh bodies. Also, there is a hud that will let you completely customize the color of individual sections of the bracelets. I’ve included the vendor photo below so you can get a closer look. The HEC group has a one time join fee of 25 linden.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass) Maitreya Lara
HEC (GROUP GIFT) • DEMI LOVE BRACELET GIFT MHY40-119

The Bench – This adorably rustic heart bench is a free group gift at Reka. The Reka group is free to join. It has a few female sit poses, a few male sit poses, and several cuddles. I love the over all look of this sweet free gift, especially the way the bench curves toward the center. This freebie is waiting at the Reka landing point. There’s also a group joiner since you’ll need to be wearing the Reka group tag.

Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts

I love conversation hearts.  You know, those little pastel candies that don’t taste like anything in particular other than sugar and the colour pink.  It’s not the taste I’m after, it’s the little messages.  I still get overly amused when I find one that says “fax me” or “page me”.  Looks like the conversation heart writers are still stuck in 1994!

Love Bites

It’s time for the Love Bites Hunt!  There’s a sim full of little conversation hearts just begging for you to find them.  They are all priced from under 25 Lindens, and they are filled with goodies I just can’t get enough of.   The sim may be a little busy, but if you derender everyone and cam about it makes things just a little easier.  Today I’m showing off the offerings by Ersch, which are priced at only 1L each.  The sweater and skirt combo are delightfully quirky and give me that pink and red pop of colour that I love this time of year.  Both are sized for Maitreya bodies.  Don’t delay, the Love Bites Hunt runs until February 17th!

The real question is, who is faxing valentines!?!
