Red White and Blue

Red White and Blue
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry it’s been so long since my last post, that pesky Real Life is relentless at times. Needless to say I am happy to be back, I missed you guys! If you live in the States like I do, our most patriotic holiday, Independence Day, is nearly here.  Personally I just want to celebrate with friends and and family and take advantage of the opportunity for some summer fireworks. It wouldn’t be the 4th of July without some red, white, and blue gear to show your patriotic spirit. I picked up two free Independence Day inspired gifts to share, I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Bikini Top – I think this free star shaped bikini top from Dirty Princess is a must-have. Not only is it perfectly patriotic, it’s also something I’d wear all summer, no holiday needed. This free Dirty Princess group gift comes in 2 versions, the one with white ties shown, and one with red ties. The Dirty Princess group is free to join. This free gift is sized for Maitreya only. To get yours head over to Dirty Princess, enter the store at the entrance with the horses, the gift is waiting next to the desk.

The Phone – For a little fun ChicChica put out this cute patriotic cell phone out as a free for everyone gift. There’s no group needed, just purchase the gift for zero linden. This free USA themed phone has a hold pose. You’ll find this freebie waiting on the ChicChica desk.

Here are the details, enjoy!

I Saw Stars

I Saw Stars

Hey there Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. A musician friend of mine once said “It’s hard being cool when you’re not.” It made me laugh at the time, but in a lot of ways it’s a true statement. I think we all at some point want our peers to think of us as some form of “cool.” As for me, I am genuinely the least cool person ever, but I don’t mind. I’m learning to be happy just being the nerdy weirdo that I am. Still, I can manage to look cool thanks to this super cool free top from BYRNE!

The star patterned top Pru is wearing is the free June group gift for all BYRNE Style group members. It comes in several mesh sizes, and as always the texture is art in itself. Speaking of the texture, the top comes in 2 variations, the black version shown and a similar white version. Not to mention it would be perfect for the up-coming 4th of July festivities for those who celebrate and don’t fancy the traditional “red white and blue” theme. Also, there is a gift for the guys! To get your gift, join the BYRNE style group, it is free to join, and check the group notices. Don’t forget there’s a version for male avatars as well! 
Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

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!

Oh My Stars!

Oh My Stars! 1

It’s 25L Tuesday! And If you stop by Lua’s today you can pick up the Alma dress (which in my opinion is a STUNNING gown in one of three colors — black, red or purple). This gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes for a terrific fit, is strapless, and has a mermaid style skirt that is just delectable. This is one to definitely add to your inventory! And for a mere 25L, why not pick up all three colors? I’m modeling it for you in black, today.

Oh My Stars! 2

To add a touch of class, I picked up the FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from Stars! which is this lovely jewelry set called Fleur. This EXCLUSIVE Gift set includes the pretty pearl and red gem-ed necklace, earrings, and two bracelets. Just find the little red t-shirt and you are all set.

If you are an avid photographer and noticed my fantastic poses, you should stop by Belle Epoque today as well. This lovely creator is offering two pose packs for the 25L Tuesday special. I’m showing you two poses out of the “What You Do To Me” pose pack, but there is another Pose Pack up for 25L that is equally lovely.

Enjoy your Tuesday!

Don’t Try to Box Me In

Don't Try to Box Me In 1

I am making away with some fabulous finds at the Cart Sale… and this sexy little black dress just happened to catch my eye this morning and find its way into my wardrobe. I really think it is a must have simply for its versatility. The design is clean but classic and embellished enough that with the right accessories it can be casual, elegant, Gothic (as I have done) steam punk, fantasy, or just about anything your heart desires. And for just 10L at the Stars Fashion Cart at the Cart Wash Sale, it was a real gem to take home. What’s more, it comes in all the standard sizes, plus fitmesh as well as Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza fits.

Don't Try to Box Me In 2

I wanted to stop by to see a particular sim (the location is listed at the bottom of this post) and somehow the wintry feel, class ideas of ghosts and lives past, brought out the Gothic poet in me! So when I saw this stunning FREE accessory gift by Pixel Box designs — and how well it went with my little black dress from Stars Fashion — I just fell in love. You don’t even need to join the group, just hop over to Pixel Box and buy the gift for FREE. You’ll get these gorgeous boots, the raven hand bag, and the black rose head band all in one box. Do hurry though! Pixel Box tends to change out their FREE gifts quite frequently!

Mishmash! This Women’s Hunt Stuff is a Blast!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is in Full Swing and with less than two weeks left to hit 150 participating stores, I’ve been hitting the grid like a potato-masher so I could mishmash some fall styles for your wardrobe (and mine!)… and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with these amazing finds!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [3]

My first stop on our Women’s Stuff Hunt tour will be Sweet Temptations where I found the outfit which I used as a “base” for the rest. (It is pictured above.) This sexy sort of safari feeling style called Azahara is fully mesh in all the standard sizes and includes an amazing set of gold mesh boots which are slink feet compatible (for high feet). The little red shirt was a breeze to find and FREE… and I was off and on my way to hunt again!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [1]

As you can see in the picture above, those boots from the Azahara outfit quickly became a staple in my wardrobe. My next stop, however, was U:Refined {U.R.} Fashion Designs where I picked up this sleek and versatile brown dress. The gift includes system layers as well as an omega applier and has a mesh panel to make the skirt blend for a flawless look. Well worth the 1L Women’s Stuff Hunt gift tag price!

I then dropped by Stars! where I was able to hunt for the great set of Fall Leaves Jewelry you see in the picture above. Another item that I am sure will become a wardrobe staple! Once I found the little red Women’s Stuff Hunt shirt, it too was a FREE Hunt Gift and voila! Another mishmash fall outfit for you!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [3]

Pictured above, you’ll notice that Astrid is still sporting that fabulously sultry chocolate dress from U:Refined {U.R.} Fashion Designs (I told you we’d be mishmashing!) but I added a little flair to it with two other gifts.

If you take time to Hunt at OSITO, their Women’s Stuff Hunt gift is the fabulous Leather Rose Jacket pictured both above and below, which I found to be perfect for mixing and matching with many different styles of outfits. It’s mesh, comes in all the standard sizes, and was another FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift!

If you are a collector of poses and enjoy photography, you’ll also want to take a glance at Pics n Poses before you finish your Hunting. Their Women’s Stuff Hunt Prize is also a FREE gift and is the pose featured above called “Glance” of course!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [4]

As you can see above, I am still donning that jacket from OSITO and the earrings from the Fall Leaves Jewelry Set from Stars!, but this time with another outfit.

If you head over to LOoLOo & Platypus you can pick up this Fall Flowers Set. The top comes in system layers as well as an omega applier (yay!).  The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes, and the outfit includes the mesh boots as well! All this for 1L? How can you go wrong!

I hope you have as much fun mishmashing and hunting as I did!

No more yielding than a dream

Happy Friday FabFree Folks! And it’s a  happy Friday indeed with the huge Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt in full swing!

MidSummer_001

This really is a huge Hunt: one hundred and four stops! The stops are organized into six paths, each named for a character in the play. So I know you can find something you love. I found so many things I had trouble picking what I wanted to show. I know, I know… such a problem to have…

This is the hunt prize for Bad Revenge. You get the lovely asymmetrical dress, the flowers for your waist and the flower crown. The build is spot on and moves beautifully. Bad Revenge is definitely a shop I will be returning to with this example of their work. My earrings are also a Hunt prize today. These are the ‘Wishing Star’ earrings from The Kandi Store. You also get a matching nose ring in the prize.

MidSummer_002

The 1L per prize Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt runs until July 21 but with one hundred and four stops… y’all better get going!

All about the Birds and the Bees

Hello and Happy almost the weekend, Fab Folks! After you’ve all perused the HeatWave event at the Wash, you might want to keep the good times rolling with a Hunt or two. Might I suggest the “Birds and the Bees” Hunt from I&R’s Fun With Hunts.

B&B_001

I’ve picked this fun little sun dress from D.O.R.K. to show off today. I love the butterflies print paired with the simple black top. Then I saw the gorgeous butterfly covered necklace and earrings from Stars, I knew they were meant for each other.

B&B_003

La Boheme supplied more butterflies for my nails! There are two styles for SLink nails in La Boheme’s gift. The pastel butterflies ‘Happy Mood’ and ‘By the Sea’.

So while there are lots of birds and bees in the Hunt… I seem to have focused on the butterflies! 😛  Either way, this is a fun 1L per prize hunt with 93 stops. I’m betting you’ll find something to love!

Feeling Fine, Bee Mine :-)

Blogging Soon!

I was so excited to be invited to sing at this cute club today! My first set is for the lunch crowd, so I’m wearing this sweet, new gift from Paris Metro Couture. I’m wearing the mesh belted skirt, but the dress also comes with a flexi skirt and a cute hat. To get the gift, head over to Sydney City, Australia and join the group (free to join); it’s the one with the kangaroo on it. My jewelry is by Stars! and is a Womenstuff group gift. And my hair? Mana, a new release from D!va, featured at Hair Fair 2013. Now, I’ve been a fan of D!va hair since I first joined SL, but this one is truly amazing. It comes with a “base” hair, and a long, mesh attachment, which I’m wearing here. You can turn the bow and headband off and on individually, and change the color. I really love the ’60s bouffant style. 😎

Blogging Soon!

For my evening set, I’ve selected this amazing gift from Finesmith Jewelry. The July group gift includes this gorgeous, mesh dress, AND all the jewelry I’m wearing! The Finesmith group is currently free to join, so don’t miss out on this fabulous gift. I’m still wearing my Mana hair from D!va, but this time I’ve taken off the mesh part, turned the bow and headband off, and turned ON the bun. If you love messy updos, then this look is definitely for you! D!va is donating 20% of their sales to Wigs for Kids, so you can’t go wrong by supporting this worthwhile cause. 🙂

P.S. Many thanks to Alex Philo, owner of Sydney City, Australia, for going above and beyond to help me out today. Stop by his lovely sim and check it out!
