Leave a Trail of Glitter

All That Glitters

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  It was a cold and dreary day here in RL, and I was sure glad to enjoy some warmer weather in SL.  Ripley and I ventured to the Bal Harbour sim and met some new canine pals as we looked for the perfect spot to snap a picture.

Sleek and Sophisticated

My dress today, Cupid, is a free gift for Fab Free group members from Glitter.  With its curve-hugging design and plunging neckline, you are sure to have all eyes on you once you don this deep navy dress.  I liked the way the fine, speckled dots on the fabric caught the gleam of the sunlight as I wandered around.  I felt so elegant in this dress, and chose to pair it with an over-sized black sun hat and a pair of simple black heels.  The overall effect was graceful and chic, and I will definitely wear this outfit again soon.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers HUD for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and eBody
  • Cupid Dress insert for mesh skirt in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Cupid Dress shirt and pants layer for classic avatars

Just One of Many

Cupid is just one of forty-eight free gifts that generous designers are presenting to Fab Free group members.  You can check out the entire group gift posting, which shows all the amazing free gifts for our fabulous group members, {HERE}.  If you are anything like me, you will find a number of “must haves” among this long list.

Until my next post, happy shopping, wonderful readers!

A Rambling Gypsy Soul

Rock Those Polka Dots
Hello wonderful readers!  I have an adorable, middle of the week Fabulous Find to share with you today.  I know it certainly brought a smile to my face when I added this free outfit to my inventory!

Rocking Those Polka Dots

Gypsy Chic’s free gift features a sweet, salmon-colored halter mini dress sprinkled with polka dots, and topped with a denim bolero style jacket.  Loosely fitted, with softly draped folds in the skirt, this frock is sure to flatter any figure.  I love the semi sweetheart style neckline, and the retro appeal of the entire outfit.  PinkMelon is a free gift for members of the TeleportHub.com group.  Although the group has a 10L join fee, there are so many goodies bestowed upon members, it’s a worthwhile investment.  The free package includes mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M and L sizes, as well as the requisite alpha layer.  The dress fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly once I adjusted its built-in alpha layer.  To add this adorable number to your inventory, simply activate the TeleportHub.com group tag, journey on over to The Event and Hunt Office, and give the gift board a tap.

Grateful For the Little Things

When I was out with the pupster on one of our shopping jaunts, we moseyed over to EarthStones, which just so happens to be one of my favorite jewelry stores in Second Life.  I meandered around the store, admiring the many baubles on display.  Meanwhile, Rip sniffed around, then excitedly grabbed my hand, led me over to the teleport board, and nosed the “Bargain Loft” section.  He didn’t have to show me more than once!  We popped upstairs, and in no time, I spotted the perfect accessories, priced well within my budget at only 75L each.  The Grateful Necklace and Bracelet, both in Ramble on Rose, echoed the pink and white tones in my dress, and suited my outfit to a “T.”  If you are in the market for jewelry, I encourage you to check out all the budget-friendly adornments available in the loft at EarthStones.

I hope you found something in today’s post to inspire you to create your own Fabulous Find.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

Nameless Unicorn

Unicorns
Well Hello There, and happy Hump Day Fab Free’rs! We’ve made it half way to the weekend. Speaking of weekends, I am glad to be back from my long weekend away. I always feel like I’ve been gone for ages when I am unable to be online for a few days at a time. That said, I’m eager to share with you all the info about this o-m-g cute dress from Stix and this sloppy girl hairstyle from MOON.

I Know You.

It’s not a secret that I have a love for unicorns. It’s something the creator of Stix, Pixy Snook and I have in common. My girlish side that still loves unicorns, glitter, pink, and rainbows squealed with glee upon seeing this mesh dress in the Stix group notices. As shown above, this simple snug little dress comes with a texture change hud that gives you five equally adorable options. I love them all but if forced to choose, the zombicorn version is my favorite. Don’t ask me why, I don’t have an answer! lol The dress comes in a fitted mesh size for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass. How do you get this awesome FREE group gift? Join the Stix (Pixy Stix) group, it’s FREE to join and either check the past notices or head over the Stix main location.

Nameless
If I Were Blind, I’d Know What You Are.

While going through the ton of notices I had from being away over the weekend, I spotted a notice from MOON about a new group gift. More girlish excitement ensued, because gift hair! Yep, I’m easily excited, and not at all ashamed of that fact. Needless to say I ran over to MOON and threw on my group tag. This hairstyle is a group exclusive sultry sloppy pony with lots of long strands. The FREE group gift comes in a fat-pack of color huds, so no matter which color you prefer, or if you like to change things up, you’re covered. The MOON group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens. I think this “Nameless” hair is worth the fee alone, however you’ll find several other previous group gifts still available as well.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – Moon. Hair //  – Nameless – FREE Group Gift/Group is 100L to Join

Love Is For Everyday

Snapshot_003
Greetings Fabulous Readers! The gifts that were given out by the generous designers over Valentine’s Day were so plentiful, that even our hard-working team of Fabulous Bloggers were overloaded trying to show them all before it was over.  I know I am still coming across gifts in pink heart prints or red love themed items, but being that I actually named myself “Love”, this doesn’t upset me one bit!  In fact, I am quite pleased :).  Easter is just around the corner, and I suppose that will mean a big drop-off of hearts and flowers and an increase of bunnies and chicks, but I guess I do have Easter Crème Eggs to look forward to!

Back Up Your Love

You are going to want to put your hair up for this one because this dishy little white and red mini-dress has a sweet heart cut out on the back that you’ll want to show off.  I picked up the Samanta Dress as a free gift – priced at 0L on the customer service desk at Evani!

Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

In Fine Feather

Snapshot_001
Hello FabFree! In my neck of the RL woods, the sun is shining and it’s beginning to warm up! While there is still snow trying to melt away, the birds are chirping at each other once again.  I am sure this is just a little tease of spring, but I’ll allow it to trick me just this one time so the birds and  I can enjoy it.

As Light As A Feather

The delicate and whispy pink gown you see me pictured in, if you can believe it…  is a free gift at The 30L Saturday Event.  This stunning anniversary gift comes in one fitmesh size which should fit most avatars.  You can find this beauty at the Belle Epoque display in a little pink jar with the price set to 0L.

For The Birds

My little feathered friend is courtesy of ENIIPose as they have set out their “I Love The Nature” pose as a free SL Frees & Offers group gift.  It includes a rezzable pose ball, the bird and berries.  The SLF&O group is free to join.

I hope you are enjoying your day too :).

Just One Day

Snapshot_001A Shadow In The Night

Good evening FabFree Readers!  As I was sitting down to dinner tonight, I noticed one of my pups (Shadow) was missing.  I wasn’t all that surprised…  often I find him on Serena’s doorstep all googley eyed, peering in the window while one of her dogs peers back out.  With the help of a trusty flashlight that I was able to pick up at Ironwood Hills for free at their landing point, I caught him about half way to Serena’s and boy was he disappointed.  Back to the dog house with you Shadow!

About My Dog Chasing Outfit

I put my outfit together this morning with some free pieces of the new 7Seas Fishing Prize called “Just One Day” at Sn@tch!  I am wearing the Kari Velvet Halter Top, Jessie Skater Skirt and Ribbed Tights (Omega Applier), however you can fish for the whole set that contains the 25 mix and matchable pieces shown below in the vendor ad.
Sn@tch Fish 4 This-Just One Day Vendor Ad SMIf you are unfamiliar with how 7Seas Fishing works in Second Life, you simply need to pick up the one time purchase fishing rod for 100L at the pond vendor, then you can fish for free over and over for future prizes!

This EMPIRE is LODEd

Goth Love
Hello Fab Free’rs! So I hope I am not alone in the thought that one of the best things about holidays like Valentine’s Day is the discount chocolate you can buy the days following the actual holiday?! Let’s just say I think I’ve had more than my fair share of Valentine candy. That little shameful confession aside, there is one compulsion I am not at all ashamed of, my addition to freebies! Why else would I be here, right? For the first time in much too long I made it out to the EMPIRE main store. I caught notice of their February group gift and picked up the January gift while I was there. Additionally I was excited to see these gorgeous flowers in the LODE group notices.

Take a LODE off FabFree

I could write an entire post and then some about how much I love everything I’ve ever seen from LODE. I won’t, but I could. The recent group gift sent out in the group notices is truly gorgeous. These lovely black freesia flowers are set in a tall slender glass vase. I want to place them in every room of my house. The LODE group is just 10 lindens to join. Yes, I said ten. Also, this gift is a group exclusive color. You won’t find this color of the freesia flowers for sale in the shop. Pay the ten lindens to join the LODE group and check the past notices before this beautiful gift is gone.

Purple Empire
This is Why I EMPIRE

As I mentioned, there are two group gifts currently still available at EMPIRE. Now I know that EMPIRE is one of those shops with a high group join fee.  The EMPIRE group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens, however, look at these gifts! The dress Pru is wearing is February’s group gift while these incredible shoes are the January group gift. I could really just end my post right there. That would be enough information for me! lol I’m genuinely excited about these gifts though, and I want to tell you more about them starting with the dress.

February Group Gift at EMPIRE 

Considering EMPIRE is known for their shoes, I was delighted to see this sexy spaghetti strap dress is the February group gift. I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed in anything from EMPIRE, group gift or otherwise, and this dress does anything but disappoint. The mesh is curvy in all the right places, and fits very well. It comes in mesh sizes to fit all 3 Belleza bodies, and Maitreya Lara. Also included is a color change HUD that lets you choose from 20 unique colors. Additionally, you can change the color of the straps separately for a touch of added detail. You’ll find this gift along with January’s waiting for you at the EMPIRE main store.

January Group Gift at EMPIRE

First I want to start by saying I’m not certain how long these shoes will remain available. I’m not knowledgeable about how long the previous month’s gift will remain available once the new gift is out. EMPIRE does a monthly group gift. That said, run run run before these shoes are gone! I know we’ve seen a lot of caged boots recently, but I have to admit these are drool worthy.  These thigh high shoes have an added optional detail that I love as well. There are tiny studs that you can choose to wear with the boots or leave them off. If you look closely in the above photo you’ll see the studs on Pru’s boots. Included with the gift is a color change hud that will allow you to choose between this dusty purple color and a pastel pink for the main parts of the shoe, there are 8 color options for the sole, and for the studs you can  pick between 3 metallic textures, and 3 gem-like textures. As always with EMPIRE, the shoes will fit Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and TMP, bodies/feet. Needless to say I believe the EMPIRE join fee is well worth it. If you haven’t joined already, do so and score the current gifts, while you also keep from missing out on future gifts.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Blah-entine’s Day

Blah-entines

Blah-entine’s Day 

Well Hello! Good to see you Fab Free’rs! We are almost to Valentine’s Day. I hope everyone is prepared! Whether you’re someone who intends to profess her undying love or someone who would rather avoid the holiday dedicated to love all together, Tres Blah has a gift for you. This one is of course just for the ladies, sorry gentlemen. The February group gift at Tres Blah is a set of Valetine’s day inspired mesh t-shirts that will help you express your love or perhaps your apathy toward the up-coming holiday. Each of the 5 tops come in mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Belleza Freya, and Slink Hourglass bodies. I have to say I really like the shape of this mesh. It fit my Maitreya Lara body with my personal shape really well. To get your gift you’ll need to join the Tres Blah group. The group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. The February group gift at Tres Blah is on the top shelf of a set of shelves with several previous group gifts.
Earwings

Cupid’s Ear-Wings

Now I have to tell you, these beautifully unique ear pieces Pru has on are a gift at Swallow for the Le’Homme group members. Carson pointed them out to me a few days ago and I have been eager to share them with all of you. The set is (I believe) unisex. Undoubtedly they are a bit on the fantastical side, however I’ve always enjoyed wearing non-traditional jewelry and accessories with everyday style clothing. The feathery wings on these earpeices from Swallow kinda made me think of Cupid considering Valentine’s Day is so close. The gift is FREE to all Le’Homme group members. The Le’Homme group is FREE to join. While wearing your Le’Homme group tag, just click the gift vendor next to the Swallow group gifts at the Swallow main store. Also, I almost forgot to mention that these earpieces can be sized via a built in touch menu. Don’t miss out on these great gifts!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
