Dilly Dolls

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. Recently I had the pleasure of rediscovering a shop that at one point in my Second Life was a favorite. That store is Dilly Dolls. Dilly Dolls is a shop with a style that is all their own. Most would probably describe the style as gothic lolita, which is fairly accurate, however it’s a bit more colorful and playful than the average gothic lolita styles. I think the word Kawaii is appropriate.  You can find everything from shoes and dresses to accessories at Dilly Dolls.

Group Gift Room

Each of the cute accessories Pru has on in the above photo are a FREE group gift from Dilly Dolls at this time. The Dilly Dolls group has a one time join fee of 150 lindens. However, there are multiple group gifts still available. Near the entrance to the Dilly Dolls main store you’ll find a circulation desk. Look to the floor for a round teleporter, this will take you to the group only gift room. You will need to be wearing your Dilly Dolls group tag t0 use the teleporter. Once you’ve arrived at the Dilly Dolls group gift room, you’ll notice there are several group gifts available.

The Key

The first gift that caught my eye is this key shaped industrial ear piercing. I think I noticed it first because I see lots of septum piercings and face piercings, but not often an industrial piercing. This unique and detailed gift at Dilly Dolls includes a color change hud that lets you change individual parts of the key.  I had no trouble adjusting mine to fit the Pixie ears from Swallow.

Tea Cup Rings

Look no further than these cute little tea cup rings for a whimsical edition to any outfit. Also a group gift at Dilly Dolls, the rings come in two sizes and include a hud with a unique feature. The hud lets you pick the color of each tea cup from several preset colors, and it lets you choose to hid or show each of the 3 cups for added customization.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

Sunglasses Folded & Worn

The sunglasses are actually two separate gifts at Dilly Dolls, the pair you can wear, and the pair for being held/displayed. I love the idea of the folded pair as a held accessory and as a photo prop. Both gifts include a color change hud that lets you custom color/choose from presets for the studs, the frame, and the lenses.

Happy Shopping Fab Free! Don’t forget to teleport to the Group Only Group Gift Room for your gifts at Dilly Dolls!

If You Listen Carefully…

If You Listen Carefully, the Silence is Beautiful

… the silence is beautiful.  It’s been a long time since I was in a snowstorm, but I still remember the peace and tranquility after Mother Nature blanketed the world in white.  Sounds were muffled, and the landscape was so incredibly beautiful.  Nowadays, I need to get my snow fix on Second Life.  Tonight, the pupster and I traveled to Rayne and PetitChat for a dose of winter wonderland.  Isn’t the scene just lovely?

Feeling Lucky?

My sweet dress is a Lucky Board prize at Lunaria available to members of the Lunaria group.  Since the group is free to join, the only investment I had to make was a bit of time waiting for that magical “K” to appear on the board.  It took a couple of days of trying off and on, but this little number was well worth the wait!  With long sleeves, a charcoal colored bodice, a gray skirt, and cuffs, this frock kept me warm, but also offered stylish touches as well, such as the tree print on the bodice and pale embroidery on the cuffs and hemline.  I really like the more muted color scheme of this outfit.  With sizes for classic avatars as well as several mesh bodies, this free lucky board prize is sure to please.

Sizes and Mesh Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Well,  that’s a wrap for today.  Tomorrow, Ripley and I are going to hit the kitchen and snooze by the warm oven (Ripley – not me) and attempt to whip up a home made (from scratch) pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving Dinner dessert (me –  not Ripley).  We’ll see how THAT turns out.  I haven’t had the best of luck in the past with pie crusts.  Anyone know of a good bakery that will be open late on Wednesday, just in case?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Jingle Those Bells!

Jingle Those Bells

Some might say it’s too early to start donning the Christmas gear, and usually I’d agree.  However, I just couldn’t wait to show you all this gorgeous group gift from Violent Seduction.

Winter Wonderland

Wearing the Astral Christmas dress that I found, I suddenly felt the urge to head to the North Pole.  Perhaps I was a bit foolhardy wearing such a skimpy dress to the frozen regions of the world, but the magical aura at the North Pole Village and Santa’s Workshop sim drove the cold from my mind.

The elves were merrily capering about, and the crystalline caves glittered before me.  Before I knew it, I was helping wrap gifts, and Santa himself was doing a practice run in his sleigh.

Lo and behold, the Christmas spirit had taken over, and I had to remind myself that it was still November.  Ahwell, I guess I’ll deck the halls anyway!

Astral Christmas

As I mentioned, this gorgeous red dress that caused me to cavort with elves is a free group gift at Violent Seduction.  The group is currently 100 Lindens to join, but they do have some other great gifts out, as well as three group boards, two of which Love previously blogged about HERE and HERE.

Sizes:

  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Well guys, I’m going to go jingle some bells and hang out with the Sugar Plum fairy!

Just a Boho Girl and Her Pup

Just a Girl and Her Dog
Hello Fabulouses!  Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend must never have owned a dog.  Ripley brings me far more joy than any jewel ever could….although I do have to admit that a diamond wouldn’t have outrageous vet bills………  Aww, don’t worry boy, you’re still my #1!

Speaking of the Number 1…

Yesterday in my post {HERE} I highlighted a lovely dress that I picked up from Brii Underground for a song.  What I didn’t tell you at that time was that there are quite a few goodies at the store, all available for just one Linden dollar.  My beautiful boho outfit is one of them.  From the jeweled headband and accessories, to the hemline of my maxi skirt, the Mireia outfit includes everything I’m wearing.  I love the realistic texture of the cropped tank top, and the way its hue is echoed in the pattern of the skirt.  Raspberry and teal always look so delicious together!  The generous designer thought of everything you need for this complete outfit, including feathered earrings, a necklace, and a slender bow to accentuate your waistline.  There’s even a pair of sunglasses and a make up applier that I opted not to wear.  The lovely floral tattoo is also tucked inside the package.  I don’t normally wear body art, but this one was just too pretty to pass up.  To add Mireia to your inventory, teleport over to the shop, and locate the vendor in the 1L section on the front wall.  There’s no group required!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh skirt in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Fit mesh top in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Tattoo applier for classic avatars as well as Maitreya and Omega
  • Omega Make Up Applier for Catwa Head

Until my next post, happy shopping!

The Lady is a Vamp

The Lady is a Vamp

Sometimes I feel a bit vampy, and it calls for red hair and a whole lotta latex.  When I get into this mood, there’s only one place to go – D’eVil!  The best thing about these high-gloss items is the fact that they’re completely free! 

The D’eVil Inside

D’eVil is a special little shop that is quite small, but crams a heck of a lot of really great clothes, boots and other interesting finds inside.  I remember being completely shocked when I walked through the door to see that everything in the store is 100% free.  Yes, you read that right.  The owner, Dariana, says that she has “nothing to sell, only to give away” because “having someone smile is the greatest thing in the world”.   Well, I sure did smile looking around the store.  There are several dresses, different kids of shoes, and a few adult-themed items, all priced at 0L.

Shine on, You Crazy Diamond

In the photo above, I am wearing the Jani dress, which has several versions inside the box, all in different transparency rates.  If you’re feeling daring, that is! It also comes in leather, for days where you want a bit more coverage.  This dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.    The Via boots are quite versatile, you could even wear them with an oversized sweater for a unique look.  They come with a texture HUD so you can choose from many colours to match your outfit or mood!  There is also a leather version included in the box.  These are also a Maitreya Lara exclusive.   The texturing on the clothes really is top notch, and sometimes I catch myself staring at the shine!

Well, there you have it Fab Free – get out there and get your shine on!

Pretty in Plaid

Pretty in Plaid

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  After a visit to the vet today, Ripley is snoozing by my side as I type this post.  All the excitement just wore him out.  Actually, he kind of looks like I felt after my flu shot earlier this week…  Poor boy!  At least he doesn’t need any more shots for awhile.  Before we headed out to the pet doc, the pupster and I discovered a free group gift to share with you.

Rich Hues for Autumn

My Fall Dress from Sevyn East features a black sleeveless sweater tucked into a loosely pleated plaid skirt that is topped off with bow tied at the waist.  One of my favorite outfits back in high school included a skirt very similar to this one, so as soon as I saw this beauty, I knew I had to have it!  I really love the deep colors, which are perfect for fall.  Although it looks like this frock is composed of separate pieces, it is actually all-in-one.  With sizes for classic avatars in addition to two mesh body versions, this free gift is a great addition to your fall wardrobe.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport over to Sevyn East, activate the group tag (don’t worry – it’s completely free to join!) and tap the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Once I am able to rouse Ripley from his well-deserved slumber, we will travel around the grid, and locate another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 11/17/2017 – roro

roro Gifts & Info
Hello There Fab Free’rs! Today has been the longest Friday ever! Okay maybe not, but it sure felt that way for me. I am so glad to be here with you sharing this week’s Designer Friday post. Today I get to talk about a little shop called roro.  This shop is an eclectic ladies clothing shop with a playful spin on what could be considered bohemian style. Along with the unique clothing style, you’ll also find nail appliers, jewelry, and accessories at roro.

Don’t let the size of the roro shop fool you, there’s lots of shopping to be done. Also there are many opportunities for FREE and inexpensive items. The roro landing point places you near the “Gift” section and the Information area of the shop. There are a couple of Lucky Letter boards, and a Night Prize board, all of which are open for everyone to play. No group is needed. Also in this same area are a ton of inexpensive items. Most of what I saw in this “Gift” area at roro ranged in cost from just 1 linden to 10 linden in cost. Do not forget to check out the desk in the little information corner of the roro shop.

It’s in that little corner where you’ll not only find the info about current and upcoming hunts and events happening at roro, you’ll find the FREE and Exclusive gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This bright and colorful skirt is FREE to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. There are a few additional gifts for other groups in this area also. You simply need to wear the appropriate group tag for each gift. Happy Shopping Fab Free! I hope you have a Fabulous weekend!

Not a Cloud in the Skye

Listen to Your Heart
Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Friday at last!  Here I am enjoying one final moment at the shore (Ripley is off chasing gulls) before the shopping and prep work for Thanksgiving begin.  It sure would be nice to spend the whole weekend here at NorderNey, curled up on the beach with a pile of books.  Someday, maybe!

A Hint of Pink in the Skye

My sweet swimwear from Just Ordinary features white hearts scattered across a pale pink background.  “Skye” features realistic folds in the fabric, and golden half circle closures on both the bikini top and swimsuit bottom.  I love the flared skirt, asymmetrical hemline, and the ties that dangle down my back.  To add this free group gift to your beach wear collection, simply teleport over to the shop, switch to the Just Ordinary group tag (it’s completely free to join), and tap the group gift vendor.  This package offers something for everyone – from classic mesh, to fit mesh and versions for popular mesh bodies.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

Off to Save Some Birds

The poor seagulls……  The pupster has been having the time of his life chasing them up and down the surf while I tried to capture the perfect picture.  One feathered fellow just caught my eye, and I could tell he was getting pretty fed up with Rip’s antics.  It’s time for mission “Gull Rescue” to swing into operation.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Pleasant Surprise by Scandalize

Blog coming soon to FabFreeI hope I don’t sound like a broken record, but…

Hey there Fabulouses!  I know I have shown you several gifts from Scandalize over the last year, and so you probably are well aware that there is a giant wall full of sweet treats for VIPs, but every time I visit, it gets bigger with new additions.  In a notice to their inworld group recently, they mentioned that they have placed their lucky board prizes in with the group gifts, so you can just pick them up now if you didn’t win them in the boards!  With a 100L group join, you’ll overstuff your inventory with sexy little things!

Another Free Gift?  WOW!

The other day I picked up a few new to me Scandalize group gifts, and this Dian set was one of them.  Dian is a two piece matching set that goes on all in one click and includes a texture change HUD so you have the option to make it whatever colour you like…  or even mix and match top/skirt/button colours.

Sizes Included:

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