Everyone Loves a Scandal

Scandal

Hey There Fab Free! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start so far. Mine has been joyously uneventful! For now I’m happy to be sharing this group gift top from Julia’s Scandal and these cute group gift ears from Pumec. I think they pair well together for a super cute casual look.

The Top – The corset-like belt really makes what would otherwise be a plain tee shirt seriously cute. I think this “top” by Julia’s Scandal is actually meant as a dress, but to be perfectly frank, Pru’s got too much booty for that! haha The top comes in the black and purple version shown as well as a white and blue version. I wore the dress/top from Julia’s Scandal with some plain black leggings and I think it’s real cute on. The bottom of the tee has enough flair to fit over the leggings. To get your copy of this cute gift, join the FREE Julia’s Scandal group and click this group gift vendor. Also this gift includes an alpha layer so it is compatible with classic avatars!

Mesh Sizes Included: eBody (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Standard Fitted Mesh, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Ears – I want to start by saying that I was not sure what to expect from these mesh ears by Pumec. Now that I have tried them for myself, I highly recommend them. This set of ears is a current group gift at Pumec. They include a color change hud with several preset skintones, and the ability to adjust the skintone to match your skin. There are also a few color options for the piercings. They are also able to be sized using the same hud. The Pumec group has a join fee of 299 linden. There are several additional past group gifts available including a different pair of ears.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Cute Roses

Rose
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I’m excited to share more of my finds from the Cart Sale going on at The Wash. Aside from the obvious allure of completely affordable prices, a big draw to the Cart Sales put on at The Wash for me is the opportunity to try out shops I’m not super familiar with. One such shop is Dark Water Designs. Along with some very cute casual ladies clothing, they had some casual menswear at the Dark Water Designs cart. I picked up the flirty fringe top, and a cute jogger set. Keep reading for the details!

A Rose by Any Other Name

This pretty halter top with the rose appliques and the fringe was too cute to pass up at the Dark Water Designs cart. It comes in one other color (sold separately). It also fits really well, and comes in many mesh sizes. There is also an alpha layer included with this top so it is suitable for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included:  Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Cute
Cute as Can Be

The other item I picked up at the Dark Water Designs cart, and I’m glad I did, is this “Cute” jogger set. The set includes the hooded jacket and matching jogger style pants in pink and black. This two-piece outfit comes in several mesh sizes, and the jacket and pants can also be worn separately. Additionally there are alpha layers for the jacket and pants so they can be worn by classic avatars. I love the detail in the lettering across the back. It really is very cute!

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.

Here are the details!

Hot Elegant Malvada Mujer

Wait Just a Minute
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope this post finds you well. I have had so much going on, I am not even sure what day it is. One thing I am sure of however, is that I am loving this look made of group gifts and cheapies from Hot Elegant Clothing and La Malvada Mujer. There is something empowering about putting together such a daring look. Second Life lets me experiment with fashion in ways that I might not otherwise. I hope you have as much fun with these items as I did!

Hot Elegant Clothing aka HEC

This revealing outfit is the most recent group gift at HEC. This tiny bandeau style top paired with short shorts are ultra sexy on. Each piece can also be worn separately. This FREE group gift outfit from HEC comes in several mesh sizes and has a customization hud that lets you choose from a few color presets for the belt. There is also a few customization options for the top such as transparency, and the option to hide or show the belt. To get your copy simply join the Hot Elegant Clothing group for a one time fee of just 25 linden, then click the group gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh ( xxs – L ) w/Alpha Layer, TMP, Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya)

La Malvada Mujer

I don’t mind telling you that I am living for this eye makeup look from La Malvada Mujer. It’s one of several equally edgy and stunning color options in a recent group gift applier set. Called the Nefelina Eyeshadow, I picked up this FREE group gift by first joining the La Malvada Mujer group, it’s FREE to join, and checking the notices. You’ll see this FREE group gift went out on January 3rd, so it should be available for a few more days at least. Finally, this army green-ish lip color is an inexpensive find at the La Malvada Mujer location. I picked up the Underwood Lips for just 10 linden while browsing through the shop. There are 8 total lip colors including this dark green shade Pru is rocking. If the green isn’t something you’d enjoy, there is bound to be at least one you’ll love. Both the eye shadow and lipstick are appliers only.

Makeup Appliers Included: Omega, Genesis

Get What You Give

Get What You Give
Merry Christmas Eve Fab Free’rs! I sincerely hope each of you has a wonderful winter holiday. If you’re like me and you’re procrastinating on all the baking and gift wrapping you have left to do, I have the perfect way to spend your time! Fabulous group gifts from Vinyl and HUWE are just waiting to be picked up. Stay tuned and I’ll tell you all about them.

Vinyl

I’m never not excited about group gifts from Vinyl. There are several group gifts available at the Vinyl main store, however I think the most recent gift might be my favorite so far. These super cute snowboarding pants are a group gift version of one of the new releases at Vinyl. The details really are what make these pants awesome. They have little knit patterned details that are Christmas-y but not over the top. How cute are those reindeer?!  To get yours, you’ll need to join the Vinyl group, it’s FREE to join, and click the group gift.

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

HUWE

It’s never been a secret that I love tattoos, and I think this one is very pretty. This dark detailed upper body tattoo is a current group gift at HUWE. I really like the phrase scripted across the lower part of the tattoo. It reads “You get what you give.” I think that is a fair statement for the most part. The details are very nice in this tattoo also. To get yours, join the HUWE group which is 10 linden to join. Then click on the group gift vendor at HUWE and your gift will be delivered.

Plum Tuckered Out

Plum
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I’ll tell you I’m feeling a little tired and a whole lot lazy today. Not that there’s anything wrong with a sleepy lazy day once in a while! So lazy in fact that I didn’t bother with pants. Who need pants anyway. This is Second Life, and pants are overrated if you ask me. Haha Alright so this super comfy no pants look is courtesy of a FREE group gift at Masoom.

The gift includes this over-sized pushed-up sweater and matching panties in the plum color shown. Each piece can be worn separately as well as together, and there are several mesh sizes included. The Masoom group is just 10 linden to join. Now, I think I’ll curl up with some coffee and a book. I hope you enjoy this inexpensive gift from Masoom!

Get Baked at the Frost Fair

Get Baked
Hello again Fab Free’rs! As we creep closer and closer to Christmas I’m realizing I have so much still to do! Doesn’t it always seem that no matter how well you plan there’s always something left to be done. Baking is on the list of things to be done. Truth be told I probably do more baking Christmas Eve than I do the rest of the year combined. I like to gift baked goods. With that in mind the outfit Pru is wearing is very much an outfit I’d spend all day Christmas Eve in while I made a mess of my kitchen! Keep reading to find out how to pick up the headband, top, and slippers for 1 linden each.

Petite Mort

Like all the gifts in this post, the cute “Let’s Get Baked” top by Petite Mort is a dollarbie gift at the Frost Fair. This fun holiday themed top comes in several mesh sizes. To get yours, look for the gold and red gift box at the Petite Mort and buy it for 1 linden.

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

Slipper

The perfect house shoes for a day of holiday baking, these shoes are the dollarbie gift from Slipper at the Frost Fair. I really like the little details such as the stitching around the edges. This cute dollarbie is waiting for you at the Frost Fair in a pretty gold and red package at the Slipper booth. The shoes come in a few sizes, including a standard mesh size with a shoe base.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard, Slink, Belleza, Maitreya

Boutique 187

This headband by Boutique 187 was just too cute to pass up. It’s the cherry on top of an already cute outfit. It isn’t often I have an excuse to wear such a cute and silly accessory.

Cotton Candy Sweet N’ Low

Cotton Candy 1
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I’m excited to share more of the fantastic gifts available at FaMeshed and the coveted TRUTH group gift for the month of November.  Since I have several things I want to tell you about, I’ll keep this part short and sweet. I hope you love these great gifts as much as I do!

TRUTH the Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth

Several days ago TRUTH sent out the group gift for November. Though it was a little late coming, the gift was well worth the wait. It’s also worth the one time join fee of 350 linden for the TRUTH VIP group. Each month a new group gift is sent out through the TRUTH VIP group. This long style is called Ginevra, and it is a fatpack. In addition to all the color huds, there are 2 versions of the hairstyle; One with the headband and one without. The gift also contains a style hud for both versions that lets you pick between 4 style variations, and 2 bang syles.  Additionally you can adjust for larger chest sizes. Needless to say, if you haven’t joined the TRUTH VIP group yet, you should!

Cotton Candy

Completely FaMeshed

Now, you may recall I showed the FaMeshed gift from Vinyl in my last post. Now I’ve picked 3 more to share with you. First, the top and matching pants are the FREE group gift at FaMeshed from COCO. I love the little details of this set, like the un-tucked side of the tank top.  You could also wear the top or pants separately.

Mesh Outfit Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Next up, the snowflake earrings by RealEvil Industries are gorgeous. You’ll find them FREE (just wear your FaMeshed tag) under the Christmas Tree at FaMeshed. There’s nothing about them I don’t like. They even have the added detail of looking like real earrings in the back. The little gold snowflakes with the diamond chip in the center are beautiful on. They are the sort of jewelry that can be worn with casual attire as well as formal.

Finally, I think the FREE necklace gift from Cae at FaMeshed is so cute for the holiday season. The gift includes a short and a long version of the same necklace. I wore both in the photo to show the difference in the lengths. The necklaces are sizable and include a hud for changing the metal of the jewelry, the color of the gemstone, and the wording on the little medallion. The medallion can say either “Naughty” or “Nice” I think I’m a bit of both, so I chose to wear one of each!

Here are the details, enjoy!
