What You Always Wanted

What you Always Wanted

I always wanted a leather jacket.  Always.  Seems I could never quite find the perfect one, unfortunately.  To me, a black leather jacket is quite literally the most useful item you can have in your wardrobe.  It can give clout and toughness to even the girliest of outfits, which to me is always a nice counterpoint to any sweetness.  Don’t you think?

I am Fashion

I went by IAF today and noted that there are a whole bunch of FREE group gifts just waiting for you to claim them!  Today I’m showing you the Embellished lime bustier which comes as an applier (for both Omega and TMP) as well as system layers.  There are a whole bunch of other cute gifts for you to pick up too while you’re there, just join the free IAF group for free and they’re all yours!

Kisses for the Cart Sale

The Wash Cart Sale is going down right now, and we all know that means deals aplenty!  Love has shown you a few of her finds HERE and HERE, and I picked up my really cute leather jacket by Baci while I was nosing about.  It cost me a mere 25L, but hiding inside the bag you’ll also find some lingerie to go with it!  There are several different versions of this jacket to choose from, but I went with the classic black to match my outfit (it has a bit of hot pink writing on the back, which is pretty cute too!).  Loads to discover over at The Wash sim!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Maitreya

  • S – L with an Alpha Layer

Right I need to go pretend to be tough a bit more!

Throwing Shade

Throwing Shade

It’s always interesting to try and make an outfit you wouldn’t usually wear into something really cool.  I don’t know that I could ever pull off a matching bandeau top and bicycle shorts in RL, but quite frankly, I think it’s fun to step outside one’s comfort zone in SL!

A Ring of Roses

Rosary has a new group gift out!  This shorts and bandeau top (as well as the earrings that match!) are all together in the box, and they come with an HUD to change to a bunch of different marbled looks, or if you prefer, a host of plain colours as well.  I think you can personalize this outfit in lots of different ways, either for some exercise or dress it up a bit for a really cool model off duty look.  The top and shorts can also be worn separately so you can mix and match with things you already have in your inventory.  The Rosary group is currently 200L to join, but there are some other group gifts there too right now!  Woot!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Sn@tch Your Weave

Please ignore that ridiculous subtitle, I just couldn’t help myself.  Anyway, there’s a new fishing grab bag at Sn@tch!  If you head over there with your 7 Seas Fishing Rod (it only costs 100L and you can use it for every fishing outfit in the future – you can buy it by the pond at Sn@tch!), you will have access to a massive pile of different hair looks.  I was there for a little while and came up with at least 5 different hairdos that all looked super adorable on.  I am showing you the CL hair, which is nice and sleek and sideswept.  I’m sure you’ll find something you love lurking in the pond there!

What kind of look can you put together with these gifts?  We’d love to see your creations in the Fab Free Flickr group pool!

Walk Into the Room Purse First

Walk Into the Room Purse First

I don’t think there has ever been a song that I identify more with than Purse First by Bob the Drag Queen (well, I mean…there are probably loads that I identify more with, but for the purposes of this post, let’s just suspend our disbelief for a moment!).  The song has it all – sass, a beat and the deep knowledge that you should never pay too much for an outfit.  Don’t you think you could get behind that statement?

Don’t be so Evasive

There are two new group gifts at Queenz!  Yessss.  I love me some Queenz.  I decided to show you the “Evasive” dress, which shows a heck of a cross-section of your cleavage (ain’t nothing wrong with that, amirite?) and is really an eye-catching look.  It comes with an HUD with plenty of colour options, so you’ll never get bored.  You can get yours by joining the Queenz group for FREE, and you can totally grab all the other awesome gifts while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Katena
  • Maitreya
  • Venus

Now About that Purse

So I totally take the advice of walking into the room purse first seriously.  I 100% did it for real at a wedding in RL and almost beaned a very bewildered fellow in the face, but it was a glorious moment nevertheless.  You can walk into the room purse first SL style with this cute group gift by Mug!  It comes in 4 different colours, and you can even change the colour of the pompom too.  The bento pose is just adorable, and I love every minute of it.  You can get your own by joining the Mug group for 150L, and don’t miss the other two group gifts while you’re there! (I showed you those puppies right HERE).

Have fun my darlings!

Skip to Summer

Skip to Summer

It may just be my imagination, but we seem to be sneaking a few more beach shots than is normal for March here on the Fab Free blog.  I can honestly tell you that I am in some serious need of vitamin D.  And also warmer weather, and a possibly to not ever wear snow boots again.  I feel like these things may improve my life by quite a bit.  In the meantime, I’m finding some sunlight in SL, and keeping my fingers and toes crossed for some RL sun!

I See the Moon

So Moon has quickly become one of my favourite hair places on the grid.  They’ve got loads of gorgeous styles to choose from, and when I stopped by the other day, I noted that they have a masssiiiiiiive wall of gifts right behind the main counter.  I joined their group for 99 Lindens and got about 15 different styles that I am completely obsessed with.  My favourite one is this long undone braid that comes with little daisies you can add for whimsical purposes.  Fantastic or what!  Get over to Moon, what are you waiting for!

Go Fetch!

Fetch have a few group gifts out right now that you can pick up with a group join fee of 50 Lindens.  I grabbed these really cute sun glasses (they come with an HUD to change the colour of the frames) as well as their most recent gift – the insanely adorable pineapple clutch I’ve got in my hand.  Is it not the best?  I feel like summer is creeping up on us just because I’m holding it!  Head on over to Fetch and grab these beauts!

Until next time, darlings!

Feelin’ Friday

Feelin' Friday

It’s Friday everyone!  The mystical land of freedom and joy (well, at least for those who don’t work on weekends, I suppose).  Today I feel like letting my wild side out a little bit, because we all know that doesn’t happen often enough (cue laugh track)!  I may just have found the outfit for that perfect Friday feeling!

Lana at it Again

Lana has been making some really interesting clothing recently, a lot focused around some appealingly shiny and semi transparent plastic material of some ilk.  If you’ve been itching to try it out but aren’t quite sure what it would look like on, there’s a perfect chance to get your mitts on some right now as a FREE group gift at the mainstore!  The Abi skirt is a shiny holographic concoction with an HUD included to change to all sorts of amazing colours,  and I kind of really love it!  Join their group for free, pick it up (and the other gifts there, while you’re at it) and you’re good to go!

Liaising with Love

Love mentioned the other day that there are a whole bunch of goodies over at The Liaison Collaborative.  Join their free group, and you’ll be able to pick up a host of cute things, including the hair I’ve got going on by Iconic!  It comes in a whole fatpack of awesome colours and just looks absolutely chic and gorgeously mussed, in my humble opinion.  The group gifts are all on the little carts hanging around the middle of the event!

Time for some craziness, hold on tight!

Heart Eyes for You

Heart Eyes for You

I know Valentine’s day has passed, but the timelessness of the heart is something that cannot be denied.   I would most probably wear hearts on my clothes all year round, and I found some awesome cuteness to share with you today!

I Heart You

I sometimes make discoveries of stores just by making my way through SL, and I came across a gacha by a really cool shop, Mug, just a few weeks ago.  There’s a lot of cuteness in this super pink store (with just a little creepy too, and you know I love that), and I discovered that they have two group gifts out right now with the promise of more over the rest of the year.  I joined the group for 150 Lindens and got my mitts on this cute semi-sheer tube top (sized for Maitreya bodies) as well as the really nice heart choker I’m wearing too!

Heart eyes for all of you!

Surfin’ Safari

Surfin' Safari

I am a small person.  I don’t take up much space in the world, and there’s something super counter-intuitive about a really small avatar driving a really big car.  I found myself in a 1950’s hulk of a vehicle by the beach today, and I can honestly tell you that I am not mad about it one bit.  The sun is shining, and so are the beach balls so let’s dive in!

Everybody Surfing

I am 98% sure that I would be horrible at surfing in RL, but in SL I am a pro at pretty much everything.  I may even have won surfing awards at some point over my years on the grid (who can remember, I’m sure I have a medal in my inv somewhere…), but I digress.  How cute is this look from Ersch?  Sure, it’s most likely lingerie, but I say flout the rules.  There are some fairly transparent bits to this adorable outfit, but to that I say “Pish-posh!  To the beach we go!”.   I got this two piece set (that comes in three different versions, the other two with daisies and flowers on them), by joining the Ersch group for 75 Lindens.  That’s a deal and a half!  Go grab it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

I don’t actually think I can reach the brakes, a little help please?

Livin’ Our Best Life


Best Life

Hello There! Welcome back to the blog! Is it too early for the beach? Maybe. I suppose it depends on where you are in the world. Here in Second Life we get to be beachy anytime. This cute little pup and I are out living our best lives right here in SL where the sun always shines. Speaking of this adorable doggie, she’s part of a free gift by Eniipose at The Free Dove. Additionally, Pru’s outfit is a freebie by Sn@tch, also available at The Free Dove. Keep reading for all the info.

Pose and Props – I think French bulldogs are my favorite of the bulldog breeds, and this little pup with her red bow and sunglasses is the cutest of the cute. She is part of the free gift by Eniipose at The Free Dove. The gift also includes the cell phone with the matching bulldog case, and a hairbow for you to wear (not shown), and of course the pose. To get your copy of this free gift you’ll need to venture over to The Free Dove and join their free-to-join group. Then while wearing your group tag you can click the gift vendor for this item and it will be delivered to you.

Applier Outfit – While at The Free Dove snagging some freebies, I also picked up this free outfit by Sn@tch. The tied shirt and cropped jeans come in classic system layers and Omega appliers. There are 12 color choices for the top, and one for the pants. You’ll need The Free Dove group tag for this gift also. The Free Dove group is always free to join.

Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’ve been fishing! Of course I mean 7Seas Fishing at Sn@tch. Their current “Fish 4 This” outfit was just too cute to pass up. Not to mention the fact that you can score a full head to toe look with different color choices for several of the pieces. Also, there are options that make this look suitable for Classic avatars. The following blurb is a quick “how-to” for those new to 7Seas Fishing. I’ve posted it before, but figured I’d post it again just incase someone needed the information. If you’ve already figured the fishing thing out, just skip that part.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

“That Magical Night” Outfit 

Like most of the Fish4This outfits at Sn@tch, this one includes everything you see in the photo, just about. These items are all free, as long as you have your 7Seas Fishing Rod. There are 21 total pieces, including the top with bra in an Omega applier, and system layers, 6 mesh skirts, the black tights in Omega appliers, mesh boots (alpha layer and shoe base fished separately), jewelry, and the hairstyle shown in 3 colors. Also, each of the mesh skirts come with the following size options: Standard Mesh, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Fine, Curvy), and EBody.

Here are the details!
