Summerpalooza @ Sn@tch

snatchfish1
Well… It looks like the rain is finally going to force me off of the beach today, but before I go – I am going to enjoy the refreshing rain, because after three hot days at the beach even that feels fantastic!

A Change In The Weather, A Change In Clothes

I’ve changed out of my swim suit to put some clothes on now that the rain has forced me out of the water.  Sn@tch was kind enough to dress me up for free today.  In fact, I think they will be dressing me up for free all summer, because this week the 7 Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch is a 26 piece Summerpalooza Grab Bag Set that includes a ton of summer clothing essentials, shoes and accessories.  You can see me displaying the following:

  • #22:  Trinka Jean Shorts Omega Applier
  • #24:  Trinka Crochet Halter Top Omega Applier (white, pink and blue available!)

You will need to use a 7Seas Casual Fishing Rod, however no bait is required and you can use that one time purchase over and over for future prizes.

The Next Day

MHScandalizeSnatchHope you don’t mind if I blog with my eyes closed…

UGH!  The events of last night flooded back into my brain as I winced in pain trying to hide the from the sun, which seemed to be extra bright this morning.  An afternoon of Mojitos with Pru [shown here], turned into more mojitos and a girls night out.  She is such a bad influence on me :O!  Why, oh why did I drink so  much, and since when do I dance on bars?  I better call Pru and see what other “crazy girls night out” things I can’t remember!

I did manage to shower and get dressed for the day,

but no way am I ready to be upright!  Thank goodness I had picked out today’s outfit yesterday so I could just slide into it this morning.

  • The Jeans:  I stopped by MH Unique Design and picked up these fantastic ripped denim capris that are available THIS WEEKEND ONLY as a free group gift with a free group join.
  • The Blouse:  My Suzy Tied Jersey Top is available as low as 50L in the riot vendor at Sn@tch for a limited time. TP your friends and bring the price down!
  • The Shoes:  Scandalize put these awesome Ainara Shoes for Maitreya out as a free group gift to their inworld group members (100L to join).  A texture change HUD is included!

Scandalize. Ainara (FREE)/me feels around blindly for her shades and aspirin.

Get Into My Car

Ok, you caught me…  I have a soft spot for mustangs.  I had to stop and pose with this hot car when I saw it on the Urban Paradise Sim yesterday.   One day I hope to have a baby blue mustang with white racing stripes and white leather interior…  until then, I will just drool on everyone else’s!

Speaking of drooling…

Hey Fabulouses!  This sexy little number of a mini dress is called Shauna and is available as #18 in the Sn@tch 7 Seas Fishing Prize: Grab Bag of Darkness that includes 20 different black coloured clothing, shoes and accessory items.  Shauna comes in several different sizes and fits my Maitreya Lara Body like a glove –  if I do say so myself.  It is a bit hard to see in the photo, but there is an all over floral overlay on the texture which just ads to the cut-out design.  If this isn’t a fantastic time to stock up on basic black items, I don’t know what is!

Sizes included:

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

New to 7 Seas Fishing?

If 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!  No bait is required at Sn@tch to participate.

What inspired my afternoon outing was these great Camo Maya Shorts that I picked up as a free group gift at Bueno.  These high waisted stunners come in ripped/regular versions as well as several sizes for mesh bodies as listed below and the best part is – The Bueno inworld group is free to join!

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?

Snapshot_004Good morning SLovers 🙂

On a budget, but in need of something new and shiny to dangle in front of your partner?  Lingerie can be really expensive in Second Life…  but if you know where to go, you’ll find some really nice sets at affordable prices or in some cases, even free!

Sn@tch… It Fits The Bill

The new 21 piece 7Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch called “In The Moulin Rouge” sure fits the bill, and you can pick it up for free if you own a casual 7Seas Fishing Rod!  In my photo above I am wearing several of the pieces such as the Moulin Rouge Bodysuit, Simone Corset, Francine Latex Gloves and Anastasia Choker, but as you can see from the vendor ad below, the pond is stuffed with pieces to reel in on your rod!  As always, no bait is required!~

As Free As A Birdie

SnatchSpringBag
Hey there Fabulouses! If you haven’t done your 7 Seas Fishing at Sn@tch recently, make sure you check it out.   I have a sad feeling that this prize will be switched out soon, and it is SO not to be missed!  All you will need is the 7 Seas Casual Fishing Rod… no bait required!

The Sn@tch Spring Day Grab Bag Includes…

This pastel packed, spring themed grab bag includes 21 free clothing items both in mesh and mesh body appliers / system layers for mix and matching.  Whether you have a system body or a mesh body, most of these items should work, as Ivey Deschanel thinks of everyone!   I think I even spied a sweet pair of shoes in there!

About The Dress…

Today I am showing off #12, which is the Birdie Dress in Violet.  This sweet dress is a gorgeous shade of violet, has an all over floral print and is trimmed in lace.  It comes in mesh sizes XS-XL and includes an alpha layer for those on the system body.

Top Notch

SnatchorismHey there Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend 🙂  I am popping in real quick to share news with you about another Sn@tch freebie that I thought was a great basic addition to my inventory.

The Royal Rococo Bodysuit is available in the Cheap & Free section at Sn@tch (just inside the entrance doors to the right.), priced at…  you guessed it – 0L!  This bodysuit comes in 8 different colours and includes the mesh sleeves which you can wear, or leave off if you like.  As this is an applier (Slink & Omega compatible)/system layer design, it’s fantastic for layering under jackets or sweaters.  The colours are vibrant, and the texturing, top-notch!

Twisted Trinity

Snapshot_006
Hey there FabFree! Yep… I’m up to no good again!  You’ll have to please excuse my delinquent behavior today.  I’m just trying tirelessly to get a certain hot copper assigned to my beat.  I’ll risk the arrest, in fact – I’m kind of counting it.

It was perfect timing that Sn@tch had the Twisted Trinity Outfit I am wearing today set out as a free Twisted Hunt prize, just when I was needing a bad girl ensemble!  This set is worth the challenge of the hunt as it is packed full of goodies!

What Twisted Trinity Includes:

  • System Black Latex Suit / Omega Appliers
  • Shades
  • Choker
  • Hair in white & black ( I wore white and was able to retexture it to blonde with the edit feature 😉 )
  • Platform Boots

Good luck and happy hunting!

What a ride

What a ride

Time flies doesn’t it?

I was looking through the posts I’ve made here at FabFree and to my surprise realized that I’ve just passed the fifty posts mark. It still kinda feels like yesterday when I was scrambling through the new blogger application and trying not to ‘derp out’ as I filled in the notecard. In some ways, being able to write for a blog that I’ve long admired still feels more than a little surreal but to commemorate this milestone I’ve decided to recreate the styling that I did for my very first post at FabFree (if anyone’s curious it’s here). While the outfit that’s shown here today certainly isn’t a carbon copy by any means I felt that it still had that ‘cute with an edge’ vibe going for it. Here are the details;

High waisted

If you’ve been following Kat’s or Carson’s posts, you’d have notice that there are a ton of fun hunts going on for March. Seeing that it’s been a while since I’ve been on the trail, I decided to grab my trusty magnifying glass and do a little bit of sleuthing for myself. The Paws, Tails, and Whiskers Hunt 2 looked very promising and I ended up at (P3) Pixel Purrfect Productions to see if I could suss out where their prize was hidden. Turns out that luck was on my side and for just 1L the Tish Skirt became a great new addition to my inventory as I don’t own many skirts in this high waisted style. The skirt is very adorable with its anime print, sweet seafoam shades, and silky material mingling very well together. If you’re like me and appreciate the little details, you’ll also love the well-made buttons and bows on the skirt front. The Tish Skirt comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh (XXS-L) with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

While you’re at (P3) Pixel Purrfect Productions, be sure to poke around some more as they have no group needed lucky chairs upstairs that cycle through the letters rather quickly. The Paws, Tails, and Whiskers Hunt 2 is running until the 31st of March so if you’re looking for cute animal-themed clothing, accessories or decor be sure to hit the hunt trail before then.

Lucky Letters

Now that I had a cute new skirt I was suddenly hit with the problem of what to pair it up with. Would it be a button down or a more casual t-shirt? Should I go with bright colors or a muted one so as to not overwhelm the entire outfit? What I did know was that the top had to be short or something that came in a clothing layer so that the meshes won’t end up cutting into each other (SL styling problems amirite?) and with that thought in mind I remembered that I had recently won the Teeny Sheer Halter Tops from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Sn@tch. These comfy halter tops were just perfect as they came in classic clothing layers (shirt and tank top) and since this is Sn@tch applier huds for Slink Physique and the Omega system were generously thrown into the as well. Not only that but you’ll also be getting ten different colors in the free prize package and needless to say I found a very fitting one to go with the skirt. Just a little note, however, the tops certainly live up to their name and are a little sheer so get that tape ready if you’re so inclined.

Inked up again

Just like socks and fishnets, tattoos can cause a bit of a hiccup when I’m dressing too. Once again generous creators come to the rescue and today I’d like to highlight Reckless. Not only are their tattoos intricate and well detailed, their group gifts come in classic layers and appliers for mesh bodies. Take Vida for example, the gift package contains:

  • Classic tattoo layers (fresh and faded)
  • Jacket layer (fresh and faded)
  • Shirt layer (fresh and faded)
  • Tank top layer (fresh and faded)
  • TMP Applier Hud
  • 3-in-1 Applier Hud for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies

I am once again very pleased with the result of wearing a classic tattoo layer with the corresponding applier, it’s the best of both worlds really. Vida is one of the group gifts that’s currently out at the Reckless main store and while there is a 75L join fee in place, you’ll be able to get past group gifts as well.

What a ride (boots)

Booted feet

I just can’t keep away from boots for very long and certainly not when they’re steampunk themed like the Charming Boots from Monomania. If you’ve already guessed that the gears and the baroque detailing on the body of the boots are my favorite part then you’re right! The burnished gold accents on this boots certainly don’t hurt it either as does the fact that you don’t need mesh feet to be able to wear them. The Charming Boots have a resize script in them and in the gift folder, you’ll also receive and alpha layer and boots base to make fitting a painless experience.  These lovely boots are a free group gift for Teleport Hub which is currently holding a free join exercise until the 15th of this month.

And that’s a wrap! Before I hit the grid again, I’d like to thank the FabFree team and all of you wonderful readers out there for having me here on the blog. Time flies when you’re having fun and it’s been nothing but a blast! Here’s to fifty more posts eh? I’ll catch you guys later!

Took a wrong turn

Took a wrong turn

Lost again

Hmm…this club has got a pretty solid farmyard concept going on though those patrons over there are definitely taking the funky chicken way too seriously. Oh, who am I kidding? I should have just asked for directions to the latest social hotspot instead of teleporting about willy nilly. Talk about being all dressed up with nowhere to go. -sighs- Enough with feeling sorry for myself, even if it’s too late to make a splash at some glitzy club with my outfit, I can still talk to you Fab Readers about it so let’s get on with the details! I’ll work from the top down as we have a lot to get through!

More hair accessories

No hair addict worth her salt is going to let a sale slip her by and when I saw that Fabia Hair was having a weekend Spring Sale I quickly er…sprung into action. While I was at the store oohing and ahhing over the fabulous hairstyles I spotted a little sign for this cute hairband displayed along with their group gifts and upon closer inspection saw that it was a donation item set out for the Spoonful of Sugar event to benefit Doctors Without Borders. Of course, I couldn’t resist adding it to my accessory collection. It’s sweet red and white color scheme and well-made hearts simply screamed at me to get a copy for my own. When I unboxed it, I discovered that you’ll also get a lightbox version of the headband with blinking lights in the hearts. Awesome! The headbands cost only 10L so do consider picking them up if you choose to stop by Fabia Hair’s 50% of Spring Sale. The sale itself is running until the 12th.

Birthday round

The Liaison Collaborative is celebrating it’s Birthday Round this month with the majority of participating merchants putting out a free gift at their stalls. While I was there I picked up the Stickwitu (do you remember the Pussycat Doll’s song of the same name?) dress from the Entice booth. This sleek bustier dress is certainly a saucy little number, isn’t it? I do love the eye-catching black on red color scheme and those symmetrical lines draw the gaze to just the right places. More importantly, the gift folder contains the following sizes:

  • 5 Fitmesh sizes (XXS-L)
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Belleza Venus, Freya and Isis
  • Tonic Fine and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • TMP

There is also a nifty alpha layer included which certainly helps with the fitting. The Liaison Collaborative is running until the 30th of this month so hop on over to scoop up your free copy of the Stickwitu dress and more.

Fishnets

With all the talk about Sn@tch from Love {HERE}, {HERE}, {HERE}, {HERE} and Pru {HERE}, I decided to take some time to explore the new store build. Unfortunately, I haven’t really had to time to break out the fishing rod or to stalk the Lucky Letters but I did manage to snag this week’s Sn@tch and Grab. It’s always difficult for me to shop for socks, what with needing both appliers for the Slinks and classic clothing layers for the rest of my legs so I’m pretty thankful for stores like Sn@tch that pack everything in one folder. Their Fishnet Collection 2016 is on sale this week for 50L. Not only will you get a wide selection of fishnets (5 tops, 5 bottoms, gloves, stockings, and bodysuit) they’ll come in classic clothing layers as well as easy to use omega applier huds.  I’m wearing the fishnet tights in the picture above with the corresponding layer applied to the Slinks and was pretty happy with the results.

Took a wrong turn

Skin Sale

I’m sure all of us have one store that we visit routinely and for me, one of those is WoW Skins because of the Lucky Letter boards and Midnight Manias. Since they’ve joined the 30L Saturday and 35L Sunday events, however, I’ve been more than happy to stop by this skin store more often. Upon on sale is the Relitha skin (pictured above in the tan tone) All of WoW Skins products carry that signature glossy look and I really liked the eye makeup on Relitha, especially the wing tipped effect of the mascara. The Relitha skin package contains:

  • Two system skins in cleavage/no cleavage options
  • 1 Omega face and body applier
  • Brow shape

There are four other tones (Milk, Bronze, Darktan and Golden) up for sale as well going for 30L each.

Shoes

It’s been a while since I’ve snagged some free shoes for myself and was really happy to discover that Moda was offering the Cybele leather heels as a free gift for the Secondlife Frees and Offers group. These gorgeous heels are only for the Slink feet but you’ll get three different eye-popping animal prints (snake, zebra, leopard)  on the body of the shoe in your gift folder. If you’re not feeling up to walking on the wild side there is a classic all black version of the Cybele heels (shown) included in the prize package as well. The Secondlife Frees and Offers group is free to join, so if you have a slot open hit the group up and pick up your gift. While you’re there, try your luck on the no group needed lucky chairs or hit the midnight mania board there’s no group tag needed for that as well.

And that’s a wrap. Maybe I can still salvage this situation and get these chicks over here to help me coax the local goat into at least wearing a party hat instead of eating it. Till next time guys!
