Fabulously Fan(Tastic)

Coming SoonHey Fab Free! I am hanging outside the Fabulously Free in Second Life Info Hub! There’s been a lot of talk about all the free gifts and sales we have over here by Jacx here and Arielle here, but I was admiring the beautiful Halloween decorating at the Hub! It provided the perfect backdrop to show off these cozy fall looks I created. 

Funny, Fan(Tastic) Sweatshirts

Have you all been to Tastic? They have the funniest shirts with amazing sarcastic sayings on them. On the left, the sweatshirt says, “I’ve been ready for Halloween since last Halloween” which is literally true for me. Halloween is my favourite time of the year in SL! This sweater costs only 10 Linden on the Harmony Hunt at Tastic.

The other sweater I am wearing on the right says “Resting Witch Face”. This is not a gift, but it is more in the spirit of the hilarious products Tastic is known for. I have been known from time to time to give that face when I’m not in a good mood. They have lots of other goodies and freebies at Tastic so make sure you check the store out!

Sizes Included 

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Tonic Fine/Curvy

Shoes with Stockings on Sale!

I am enjoying wearing lots of cozy stockings and cute shoes this fall season. I am fashioning some here. 

  • On the left are a pair of black boots with cat-themed stockings. The stockings come in plain, polka dot and striped black, grey, red and pink versions. These are sized for Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Isis and Freya. I purchased these at MOoH! with the October gift card worth 150 Linden for group members. MOoH!‘s VIP group currently costs 100 Linden to join, and the boots and stockings are on sale for 50% for VIP members until October 28th.
  • On the right are the “Skelly Socks With Shoes” by ~MystRie~. These are available for 5 Linden on the Haunted Hunt at Malus Park. These are sized for Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Legacy, Isis, Venus and Freya. You are looking for a blue pumpkin on the sim to find these!

The Cutest Jean Skirt

The adorable skirt I am wearing in my two looks is a free gift at Free Dove at the Tastic booth. The skirt includes several texture denim patterns and it’s a must-have item! This skirt could be mixed and matched with many outfits. I am showing two textures of the skirt here, but there are more in the texture changer hud included with the freebie.

  • Kupra
  • Freya

Smokin’

Coming Soon

Confessions of a BB Addict

I really do have a Blueberry addiction, buying all the sale packs that have popped up in recent months. I need to be admitted to a BB recovery program! *laughs* In any case I am so happy to get such amazing products from such an amazing designer.

These smokin’ hot stockings and boots cost only 50L each at the FLF-o-ween at Blueberry’s booth. There is one pack of the Can’t Relate boots that come in several classic colours with options to change the colours of the laces and metals, as well as wear the booties with flat or high feet. There are also two packs of these sexy stockings which come in fishnets or flames. The flames pack is my favourite which you can see in my outfit tonight! You won’t regret buying these packs at such an amazing price. The FLF-o-ween event is open until November 1st.  

Sizes Included (Boots & Stockings)

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody Reborn
  • Slink
  • Kupra
  • Legacy

Wicked!

The other gift I am showing in today’s post is another group gift from no.match. My wicked hairstyle is their latest group gift. It comes with a colour hud that allows you to change each side of the hair to different vibrant colours. This is perfect for Halloween! The no.match  group costs 50L to join, and they have many other group gifts as well. no.match also has a new free pack of hairbases for Lelutka EvoX heads in a whole bunch of colours, so grab that while you’re there too!

Enjoy, FabFree!

Green & Cute

Coming soon to Fab FreeHey Fab Free! I have another gorgeous green outfit to share with you! It will even make you look cute in the strangest of circumstances, like this creepy alleyway I was exploring late at night when I took this photo. I love green outfits-and this dress and stockings are simply adorable together!

Lucky @ Seniha

Seniha has a whole bunch of new lucky letters at their store, and I decided to show off my favourite outfit from the bunch- the Emery Dress in green. The letter prize includes two dresses: one in a plain colour, and the second in a patterned polka dot version (shown here). There is a whole wall of lucky letters at Seniha, and all you need to do to get these is join their free group and click the board when your letter appears.

Sizes included:

  • Belleza Freya & Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Adorable High Socks

Secondly, I just had to show off these great high socks from Aquara. They are a free group gift. The stockings come in white, but you can tint the colour of the socks in the edit texture menu, as the set include a DIY (do it yourself) kit. This is great, because then you can match the high socks to fit any outfit!

Sizes included:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!

Rocking the Unboxing

Rocking the Unboxing

I was hanging around in my photo studio after one of my shopping jaunts.  I generally hate unpacking things after these (frequent) sprees.  Do you have that issue too?  I unpack and then try on my new stuff right away to get over the trauma of all the unboxing my poor little fingers have to go through 😉  The fact that my finds are often free helps me through this tedious task too!

Dark Beauty

My look today is inspired by the fun finds I uncovered at Beauty of Darkness.  This store specializes in the darker side of fashion (hence the name of the store – duh Aline) and they have a generous number of free gifts out as well as a few lucky chairs.  I picked up the Mad Cat socks and the Beauty in Darkness top for free by joining the free group!  They’ve got all sorts of stuff you can mix and match for a bit of a goth look.  Also, yay cats!  The top and tights are appliers and come with Classic System Layers, a TMP applier, and an all-in-one HUD that has options for most mesh bodies.

Another Day, Another Scandal

I was revisiting a few hidden gems in SL, and headed back to Julia’s Scandal.  They’ve got all sorts of new free gifts out including this super adorable and frilly skirt (it comes with a matching bra).  The Venus skirt has several HUD options, including a few lacy looks, and different colours.  Love it!  The Julia’s Scandal group is currently free to join!

Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Standard Fitted Mesh

/me surreptitiously hides the other boxes to be unpacked under the couch.

I’m just going to keep this outfit on for a bit longer!

Still in time for New Years.

SandP_001

Still in time for New Years

I missed this gift in time for Christmas, but I still was able to pick it up in time for New Years, and I think the print is perfect for cold January nights. Now all I need is a warm cozy fire and someone to curl up with! Fuzzy blankets would be a plus.

Pick up this gift at Salt & Pepper under the Christmas Tree that is in store while you still can. It includes the bra, bottoms, and stockings. The group join fee is 300L but there are many past group gifts still available to pick up if you are a first time joiner. Just wander back into the store and make away with your goodies. Plus, by wearing your group tag, you’ll get 15% off applied to all in-store purchases.

Fits available:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya

Ski Bunny

Ski Bunny

Well, the snow has finally found me in RL, and I’m not entirely complaining at the moment.  Maybe it’s the fact that it just looks so pretty as it falls from the sky, creating that Marshmallow World we’re all dreaming of.  I’m sure I’ll be singing a different tune come January when the cars turn the white snow grey, and slush is pervasive.  I’m enjoying it while it lasts, so it’s time to hit the virtual slopes!

Chubby Bunny

This adorable bunny sweater by Me Sew Sexy will keep me warm on the slopes, and it’s a sweet gift at The Chapter Four event.  Pay a measly 10L to join the group, and pick up piles of gifts!  I literally spent hours unpacking, so the 10L fee is totally worth it.  This cozy sweater comes in two versions:  one with the hood up and one with the hood down, which you can see me wearing in the photo.  I guess it brings new meaning to the term snow bunny!  This gift comes in fitmesh to fit most avatars (Psst – the hood has bunny ears on it!  Eeek – so cute!).

Stock up!

I love wearing cute stockings in the winter, and these ones by Aim Glory are no exception!  How adorable are they?  I love the little reindeer faces!  These stockings are another gift at The Chapter Four and they come with appliers for Omega, Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Check Meowt!

Pr!tty has been consistently gifting out really amazing hair at events, and I’m very excited to add this one to my collection.  I pretty much love anything which is vaguely cat-like, and so these little lighted ears fit perfectly into my vast horde of cat things!  I especially love the fact that there are several different colour ears in the pack, named such things as “Mistletoe” and “Wrapping Paper” .  The hair comes in a full fatpack of colours and is very versatile.  Love it!

One More Thing…

I had a very difficult time narrowing down my fave gifts from The Chapter Four, but I had to add in this lipstick applier from Elise.  I love the sparkly look!   There are several different colour options, so you can play in the paint all day long.  In the box, you’ll find appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and TMP as well as System Layers.

I think I hear someone in the background calling me to come skiing.  I’m off to hide in the chalet!  Toodles!

Snowflakes Are Falling

Snowflakes

Snowflakes are falling.

I found a gift I had to show off to you. Snowflake stockings! These pretty stockings are a FREE Peace on Earth hunt gift from House of Ruby and I just fell in love with the pretty snowflake pattern on the back of the blue stockings. They have a pretty lace trim up around the thigh. For your hunting time, you’ll get appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega to suit all your mesh body needs. I took a picture of the back because these babies were too cute not to show off.

A Stop by the Cart Wash!

The back of my dress is just as pretty and is a 10L find at the Winter Cart Wash Sale. I picked up the Eve dress by Aleutia which comes with a texture change hud allowing you to choose between 5 colors for just 10 little linden. That’s a lot of dress for your money. Warning… the dress is a bit sheer. It’s lacy and pretty but if you’re modest, you might want to invest in a pair of panties or a bra to wear under it.

Sizes it comes in: Maitreya, Slink – Hourglass & Physique, TMP.

Snowflakes 2

To finish off the look.

Chop Zuey has started their 12 Days of Christmas Advent and you don’t want to miss out! There is a member only gift area (one for men and one for women) and a free to all gift area. So three gifts will be set out each day: one group gift for men and one for women and one free to all gift. The group fee is 350L to join, but you’ll be getting a lot of gifts for your join fee, and the creator is generous throughout the year too!

I picked up this texture change Fleur Delique set on Day 5 at Chop Zuey (it was a ladies group gift). Don’t worry, if you miss a day, you can still pick up past days, so if you like this jewelry set go down and pick it up. It came with a texture change hud that allowed for a myriad of color changes for each part of the necklace for so many different options. This one is well worth picking up!
