V-Day Hangover

V-Day Hangover

Yeah, yeah Valentine’s Day is over, but I’m sporting a heavy case of the v-day hangover effect.  I’ve got the taste of chocolate on my tongue, my eyes are seeing red, and my floor is strewn with bonbon wrappers.  Whatever, I’m still going to wear red, and my little antenna are going to pronounce to the world that I want you to be mine!  You can’t stop me!

Seeing Red

Have you been to Shop Your Heart Out yet?  Love has shown quite a few of the gorgeous finds there, but I wanted to show off what I found at the Giz Seorn booth:  This absolutely beautiful crushed velvet dress.  It reminds me of the 90’s in all the best ways possible.  Check that fishnet arm action!  It really is a striking outfit.  I topped my Valentine’s rehab look with the Be Mine headband from Astralia that I also picked up at Shop Your Heart Out.

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Original
  • TMP

Alright, maybe I’ll hold off on the red and the hearts for the next few days…

Maybe…No promises 😉

Firelight Hearts

Firelight Hearts
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Is anyone else just now realizing that Valentine’s Day is just a few days away!? I got caught up in all the hearts and cuteness and forgot to pay attention to the actual date. Thankfully there is still time to find something cute to wear. I suggest this fun little dress from HEC (Hot Elegant Clothing) for the WomenStuff group. Also included with this gift is a HUD that lets you change the glow, and  “sheerness” of the dress, or hide it completely for a “strip” effect. The WomenStuff group is just 50 linden to join. This dress has a matching alpha layer as well, so it can be worn by classic non-mesh avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), eBody, Fitmesh, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Everyone loves FREE hair, especially me! The sleek hairstyle Pru is wearing is a FREE 68 Main event group gift by Firelight. The 68 Main group is FREE to join. With the Firelight gift at 68 Main you’ll get the style in 2 sizes and a color hud with the light brown shade shown and a darker brunette option.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Innocence

Innocence

Valentines Day:  the smell of roses, the taste of cinnamon hearts and the excitement of receiving cards from your friends.  I’m evoking the innocent Valentine’s Day of our youth.  Can’t you just remember making a little mailbox for your desk at school?  Seeing what each little card said?  Having your tongue burn just a little after eating those little mini hearts?  I love every minute of it, and quite frankly that is the Valentine’s Day I choose.  It’s all so sweet and charming!  You can get this charming and innocent look too – absolutely FREE!

A Flouncy Dress…

I made my way to The Gacha Life event recently, and found that there were all sorts of free little gifts out!  I highly enjoyed this sweet dress by Appliqué Chic.  The heart cutout on the chest is really cute, and though you can’t see the back, there is a cutout there as well!  It’s the kind of dress that just makes you want to twirl!  I also found this shiny balloon there by Gecko Creation, and I added it to my outfit right away, because what screams youthful fun more than that?  The dress comes in a multitude of sizes for all your needs:

  • XS-XL with an Alpha Layer
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Ocacin
  • Phyisque
  • Venus

You can pick up these gifts (and a great many more) by joining The Gacha Life group for free, making these fun gifts absolutely free!  The Gacha Life is open until February 28th.

Happy V-Day, my friends!

Oh Sunshine Day

Oh Sunshine Day
Well Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you are all fine and well. Isn’t it amazing how sometimes your outfit can completely affect your mood? I do not mind admitting that I really had fun with this cute, yet simple outfit. I hope you enjoy these fun FREEbies as much as I do. First, I’ll tell you all about this fun skirt from Cremosas, then the equally fun pearls from Maxi Gossamer.

Skirt

There isn’t anything I dislike about this group gift skirt available at Cremosas. I also think it’s one of those versatile statement wardrobe pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down depending on where and when you want to wear it.  To get your copy of this FREE group gift, head over to Cremosas and join their FREE in-world group. There is no cost to join the group. Alternatively if you do not have a group slot open, you can pick up this skirt on the Marketplace for just 50 linden, no group needed.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), EVE – (Pulpy, Slim), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Altamura, TMP

Pearls

I love these FREE group gift pearls from Gossamer Jewelry. They are such a pale shade of pink, I almost didn’t notice they weren’t white. They also come in several versions or variations for lots of versatility. There are 7 individual necklaces, a short combo, and a long combo.  Pru is wearing the “long combo” version. Each necklace can be resized via touch menu.  To get your copy make your way to the Maxi Gossamer/Gossamer Jewelry store and join the FREE-to-join Gossamer Jewelry group. The group gift vendor is on the wall near the entrance.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Commander

Because it's Fun
Sometimes you just need some fun latex accessories. I’ll just leave that right on out there.

In all seriousness, this hat and collar combo is not only incredibly well made, it’s FREE. It just happens to be the most recent FREE group gift at Moon Elixir. The hat and collar can of course be worn separately, and each accessory has it’s own color change hud. The hat is able to be resized via touch menu, and the collar comes in a few mesh sizes for easy fitting.  Both items have several equally beautiful color options for the latex and the metal accents.

Mesh Choker/Collar Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

I actually paired these items from Moon Elixir with the FREE Lana VIP hunt items Aline blogged in her post “The Future is Bright” and they looked quite well together, just as a suggestion. To get your own hat and matching collar, head over to Moon Elixir and join the FREE in world group.  Then click the gift vendor near the desk.

Celebrating Me

Celebrating Me

It’s my party and I’ll look intensely at you if I want to!  I decided that I was going to throw a party for myself for literally no reason whatsoever.  I blew up some balloons, tossed the confetti about artfully, and popped the champagne.  Now I’m prowling about looking fierce.  Why?  Well, why not, I say!

Shimmer for a Winner

My party top had to be something special, and Scandalize knew just what I needed.  A shiny silver bustier top? Oh heck yes.  You can grab it too for your very own “I am awesome and deserve to be celebrated” party.  Just join the Scandalize group for 100L (seriously, though do – if you aren’t a member you need to jump on this bandwagon now because you will get a million outfits for your 100L fee!).  I’m feeling a bit like a disco ball…kinda…

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Now go, go I say!  Go forth and celebrate yourself!

Pastel Princess

Pastel Princess
Hello again Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. I’m gonna just come out and say it, I think this super girly look is so stinkin’ cute! I hope you think so too. It makes me think of pastel goth looks and a more grown up version of some of the kawaii styles I often see. In this post I’ll tell you all about the lace top Pru is wearing from Baii Maii, and the jewelry from Yokai.

Let There Be Lace

Love actually pointed this sweet sexy lace top out to me, and I’m so glad she did. This semi-sheer lace top by Baii Maii is a Marketplace Dollarbie. Baii Maii appears to be a Marketplace only store at this time. This dollarbie halter style top comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud. The color change hud allows you to pick a completely custom color for each of 3 parts. The ruffles, the main part of the top, and the ribbon edges can each be colored independently. I love the overall look of this top. Also, the ruffles and laces connect cutely in the back, leaving the back mostly open.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Little Stars

Each of the pieces of jewelry Pru has on is a FREE gift at Yokai. The earrings, the choker, and the face stars are all separate FREE gifts with no group required. The necklace includes a color change hud that lets you pick between a few pastel color options for the cloud, and gold or silver for the stars and chain. The prim face stars come in gold only. The earrings can change colors via touch menu, and will allow you to choose gold or silver. The earrings and necklace can also be resized manually. Each of these FREE gifts can be purchased at Yokai for zero linden.

P.S. There are also several other FREEbies at Yokai, none of which require a group!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Goodnight Dolores

Cranberries
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here, even though my post might be a little bit somber. As you may or may not have heard, the world lost another iconic musician yesterday. Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries passed away leaving behind a legacy as one of rock music’s beloved front women. Dolores was an incredibly talented musician and so much more to those that knew and loved her. She was definitely one of the women I deeply admired as a young person and am still inspired by. I could continue with an entire blog post, or two, speaking about my admiration for Dolores O’Riordan, and the many ways she’s influenced my life and the lives of countless others. I won’t. I’ll just end this explanation and tribute by saying how saddened I am to learn of her death, and how deeply I appreciate her and the incredible gift that is the music she left behind.

A Tribute in Plastik

In tribute to Dolores O’Riordan the designer at Plastik put out this little crop top featuring some of the better known lyrics from one of the most recognized songs by the Cranberries. The halter style top reads “In Your Head, In Your Head, Zombie, Zombie” which was very much a politically charged grunge rock anthem, and still is.  The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is completely FREE for everyone. You can purchase yours at the Plastik main store for zero linden.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Situation has EscalateD

To go with the top from Plastik I picked up the most recent Fab Free group gift hairstyle from EscalateD. To me it has a very ’90s grunge rock aesthetic. The style comes in 2 sizes, each with or without the little stars. This Fab Free exclusive gift also includes a “Fab Free” color hud which has black hair with a wide range of brightly colored ends. There is also a color change hud for the little stars. To get your copy of this edgy hairstyle, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at EscalateD. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join.

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

Ah, mid-January.  You, and your cold winds and mounds of slush are just trying your best to make us sad, aren’t you?  I heard today on the radio that January 15th is the saddest day of the year, and is called Blue Monday.  HAVE NO FEAR, I’ve got all the free gifts to cheer you up!

Hearts Everywhere

Carson was saying HERE that we’re a month away from Valentine’s Day, and you bet your bippy that there are going to be heart themed things all over the place very soon!  This cute corset top is a free subscriber gift from Promagic.  Just TP over to their store, click on the subscriber and BOOM.  Gift.  This corset is part of a shiny set (it comes with a fairly revealing little set of undercrackers….) but I’m pairing it with a skirt to protect my modesty!  It fits Maitreya bodies like a glove!

Makeup Magic

A Fab Free reader tipped us off on this next find – Booty’s Beauty has a whole bunch of free group gifts just waiting for you to snap them up.  I’m wearing the Simple Smoke Eye that comes with an Omega applier.  On my lips is the “Stone” lipstick which also comes with an Omega applier.  There are all sorts of things for you to grab there (whether you’re looking for Catwa, Omega or Lelutka), as well as a few lucky chairs that cycle pretty quickly.  The group is free to join, making my makeup look completely free!  YAAAS.

Now, if you listen closely, you may just hear January huffing and puffing at the fact that we’re not more sad.  Better luck next time, January!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Time for a night on the town!  I’m feeling myself today, and I’m all about being the pampered princess.  That calls for big hair, high heels, and loads of pink.  I can just picture myself now, dancing to Cyndi Lauper, clinking glasses with my girls, and rebuffing any lame-o who makes advances.  Fries before guys, amirite? Uh…right. ANYWAY…

Girls Night

I’m working that late 80’s vibe tonight with the help of a whole bunch of gifts I picked up at the Midwinter Fair!  There are so many cool free gifts there, that putting together this outfit was a breeze!  My hot pink dress comes from the BouBouKi stall, and doesn’t it just make you happy? I paired it with this uber bright clutch by Luas Urban.  I really enjoy the bright colours, as well as the charms that are hanging on the little chain.  Cuteness!  No need to join a group, just pop round the stalls and click on whatever strikes your fancy.  Hurry though, the Midwinter Fair closes on January 17th!

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Proud as a…

My last little outfit detail is a gift I picked up for free at the Gacha Guardians event.  This fun peacock hair comb just tops my hair perfectly! You can move it around to fit nicely with any hair do you may be rocking at the time.  Just join the free Gimme Gacha group when you land, and pick up your free gifties! Whee!

Wait…who’s that dishy guy over there? Maybe I will dance with someone after all…
