Hailing Hottie

Hailing Hottie

Hello Sweeties of the Fab Free variety!  Can’t a girl flag a cab looking absolutely fabulous?  Well I’m going to do it, and do it with style.   I found some free and cheap goodies to keep you smiling through your week!

A Cheeky Hipster

I meandered through the Hipster Fair, and found a boatload of awesome stuff!  Most display booths there have a little pressie for you in a mustache-shaped box.  The dress I’m wearing only cost me 1L at the Cheeky display.  I’m a massive fan of anything with a harness on it!  Plus it’s turquoise, so yay.  This dress comes with an HUD to change the colour of the straps, and it is sized for Maitreya, Hourglass and Physique.  While I was at the Hipster Fair, I also found these fab leg tattoos by Aurica for absolutely FREE! They work with Slink, Maitreya, Belleza bodies and also come with an Omega applier for good measure.   What awesomeness will you find at the Hipster Fair?

Shady Business

Another event currently happening is the 68 Main Event.  There are a few free gifts out, and as I meandered about, I picked up these awesome glasses and purse from Jumo.  I absolutely LOVE the detailing on the purse.  You can never have too many sparkly appliques if you ask my opinion!  To grab these gifts, just join the 68 Main group for free and clickety click!

I’m off to cocktails!

Dilly Dally Dolly

Dilly Dally Dolly Pru

Dilly Dolls

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. Recently I had the pleasure of rediscovering a shop that at one point in my Second Life was a favorite. That store is Dilly Dolls. Dilly Dolls is a shop with a style that is all their own. Most would probably describe the style as gothic lolita, which is fairly accurate, however it’s a bit more colorful and playful than the average gothic lolita styles. I think the word Kawaii is appropriate.  You can find everything from shoes and dresses to accessories at Dilly Dolls.

Group Gift Room

Each of the cute accessories Pru has on in the above photo are a FREE group gift from Dilly Dolls at this time. The Dilly Dolls group has a one time join fee of 150 lindens. However, there are multiple group gifts still available. Near the entrance to the Dilly Dolls main store you’ll find a circulation desk. Look to the floor for a round teleporter, this will take you to the group only gift room. You will need to be wearing your Dilly Dolls group tag t0 use the teleporter. Once you’ve arrived at the Dilly Dolls group gift room, you’ll notice there are several group gifts available.

The Key

The first gift that caught my eye is this key shaped industrial ear piercing. I think I noticed it first because I see lots of septum piercings and face piercings, but not often an industrial piercing. This unique and detailed gift at Dilly Dolls includes a color change hud that lets you change individual parts of the key.  I had no trouble adjusting mine to fit the Pixie ears from Swallow.

Tea Cup Rings

Look no further than these cute little tea cup rings for a whimsical edition to any outfit. Also a group gift at Dilly Dolls, the rings come in two sizes and include a hud with a unique feature. The hud lets you pick the color of each tea cup from several preset colors, and it lets you choose to hid or show each of the 3 cups for added customization.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

Sunglasses Folded & Worn

The sunglasses are actually two separate gifts at Dilly Dolls, the pair you can wear, and the pair for being held/displayed. I love the idea of the folded pair as a held accessory and as a photo prop. Both gifts include a color change hud that lets you custom color/choose from presets for the studs, the frame, and the lenses.

Happy Shopping Fab Free! Don’t forget to teleport to the Group Only Group Gift Room for your gifts at Dilly Dolls!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

New Horizons

New Horizons

If you were reading carefully the last few days, maybe you will have noticed Love mention that I was a Renegade Time Lady HERE.

I’ve been traveling the vortex on and off for the past 7 years, and along the way I’ve picked up a lot of great gifts.  The most recent ones are a little Rock n Roll, a little crazy, and just look cool.  Now where can I get these glasses in RL?

 Cynfully Sweet

This hot little dress is a great find from Cynful, perfect for landing on alien planets or just hanging out in my TARDIS, plus it’s free! They’ve got a bunch of really nice group gifts on the wall there, and the group is 0L to join.  You can’t say no to that!

Sizes

Freya
Isis
Venus
Maitreya
Hourglass

1975….or anywhere in time and space

I just LOVE these glasses from Since 1975 .  They are such a great addition to my ever-growing sunglasses collection (it’s a bit of a disease, I’ve got a massive collection in RL too).  They’re just perfect for keeping the rays of dying stars at bay.  The group at Since 1975  is free to join, making these puppies free!

Phew.  Time for a rest!  Or is that the cloister bell I hear ringing?

A Timelady’s work is never done!

Waiting for Sailors

Waiting for News_001

The ships will all be coming in this week and I’m waiting for a special sailor to make it back from their tour. Thanks to things like mobile towers and face-time I don’t have to miss my sailor friends completely, but seeing them in person is a different thing entirely! But once upon a time, reunions with loved ones who were out at sea for months at at time with little communication were a different thing indeed! These special vintage gifts from The Vintage Hunt, and a trip to the 1920’s New York sim reminded me of that!

Standard Vintage Fair

Be sure to stop by Loordes of London right now and get in on some of the amazing hunts that this shop is participating in. You won’t regret it. I picked up this 1L dress called the Victorian Standard as part of The Vintage Hunt. Just hunt down the little yellow umbrella and this gorgeous mesh dress is yours. It comes in classic mesh sizes XXS – L and includes an alpha if you need it. It’s all one piece, but is highly detailed with excellent texturing. I paired it with black boots for a classic feel.

Is the news in yet?

I picked up another great Vintage Hunt gift from Ashmoot. For just 1L you get two gifts at Ashmoot… these vintage sunglasses (they are resizable) and the vintage radio you see in my hand (I’m anxiously awaiting news of the returning sailors!). The radio gift includes two radios. You’ll get a no-prose prop radio that you can hold using a pose of  your own OR even rezz out in your home because its only 1 prim! PLUS you’ll get a radio that has a pose that will work with your animation override. I used the no-pose radio and added it to my own pose in the picture above.

Happy Hunting! And here is to all those with friends, family, and loved ones who are sailors!

New glasses

I added to my look by stopping by @rOrO and picking up their Third Life Gift — these “Love N Hate” Sunglasses which come in either gold of Silver. Even though my dress was gold, I opted to wear the silver glasses because I liked the contrasting looks. These are modifiable and I was able to get a nice fit with a little stretching and playing and voila! If you are not already a member, the Third Life Group is 10L to join and gives you access to gifts across the grid. It’s well worth the 10L fee!

I Like Big Sunnies and I Cannot Lie

Face ItFace It

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. As I’m sure you’ve noticed there have been quite a few new additions to our Fab Free group gift list. One of the more recent gifts is this makeup inspired tank top from Zendra. I think the pop art style graphic is seriously cute. Fair warning however, the sides of this top are really low cut. Unless you wear something under this fun FREE top from Zendra, you might be showing a generous amount of side-boob. The top is FREE to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. If you haven’t joined the Fab Free in world group yet, you should! It is always FREE to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (XS -L)

I Like Big Sunnies and I Cannot Lie

As far as I am concerned, sunglasses are like lipstick, and shoes. You can never have too many. These super cool shades are a FREE Nessmarket group gift at HEC, also known as Hot Elegant Clothing. You might recall my previous blog posts with other sunglasses gifts from HEC here, and here. These particular sunnies are able to be custom colored via a very detailed color hud. You can change each individual part of the glasses, and you can adjust things like opacity, glow, and brightness. If the glasses Pru has on seem a little big, there’s a smaller version included in the gift. The Nessmarket group is FREE to join. Just head over to HEC, join the Nessmarket group (group joiner near the gift) and snag your FREE gift.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Sci-Fi and Sunglasses

Sci Fi... and Boots

I’m feeling a little sci-fi and fantasy all at the same time today… and the elements of the gifts I picked out could be used for different genres of everyday wear or roleplay gear depending upon how you paired them with outfits or other details (I think that’s why I love these gifts so much).

The Heart Shaped Sunglasses Hunt started today and I think there are some really fabulous gifts to be had. I’m showing off two of them in this post alone, and hope to show off a few more that I have my eye on.

Thigh High

These Thigh High boots by Have Unequal immediately caught my attention and won my approval and I was thrilled when I tried them on. They say “wool” but to me they look leather with a “wool” sock sort of sticking out the top. They will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time at the Have Unequal main-store and when you unpack the box you’ll find boots to fit Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique mesh bodies. These boots would be slick for some Sci-fi roleplay or other types of RP… or just for wearing and not roleplaying 😉

Speaking of Hearts

Since I was on the heart trail, I also picked up the 5L prize from Kotte, which happens to be this great pair of heart shaped sunglasses in “sea”. They come with a hud that allows you to change the metal detailing on the glasses to either silver or gold. If you click on the flickr picture and zoom in, you can see that their is a little Gothic cross on the sides of the glasses.

A touch of fantasy

While I was at Kotte I accidentally scrolled my mouse and cammed inside another store and found my camera locked onto a group gift at a new-to-me store called {Ghoul}. Immediately I knew I had to have the Dragonglass Back Gems! They emit a soft purple light and would be great for fantasy, medieval, or sci-fi roleplay… or just for fun. The group is 50L to join, and there was another group gift beside the back gems, a photo body glow. The gems come in sizes to fit several mesh bodies, including a male mesh body!

Back Gem Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya
  • Belleza – Jake

Still Unpacking!

My Backyard_002

With 61 gifts at the Gacha Garden, I feel like I can’t possibly show enough to do them all justice… but as I was unpacking some of them this morning, I realized that there were so many beautiful home and garden gifts for creating a relaxing outdoor area that I didn’t want to neglect the “stuff” portion of the gifts. So while I want to show off a few fashion items today, Today’s post also features quite a few decor gifts as well!

New Tresses, glasses, & a bracelet

In the picture above I want to first mention a few things in the close-up. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag to pick up these free gifts, but the Gimme Gacha group is free to join, making all of these gifts free!

First is my pretty tresses by Ayashi. These free locks have an anime feel, you’ll get a fatpack of cute colors, and they include kitty cat ears that you can hide or unhide (I chose to hide them for my picture). So this hair is great if you want to use it for a Neko or other “kitty” style.

We must be on a sunglasses kick here at Fabfree because I found these Sunglasses as the free gift near the Sweet Lies gacha machine and I knew I had to have them. They are very oversized when you first put them on but are modifiable. I did some stretching here and there to make them work for me, but you might like the oversized look. I love that the creator left them modifiable so that they are so easy to make fit to your avatar!

Tie it with a bow… on your wrist! At the Breathe gacha machine, this pretty free bow tie bracelet bangle was the gift and you get it in both black and white to match a variety of outfits. I was pleased with the pretty feminine look!

My Backyard_001

One more…

The last fashion item on my list is this sexy little mini dress by Entice covered in cherries. It’s the free gift by their gacha machine. In your gift package you’ll get fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique fits for mesh bodies. It even has a little white bow at the cleavage to match the bracelet I showed you in the picture at the top!

Onto the “stuff”

It can sometimes be hard to find good free decor gifts, but the Gacha Garden had creators who were generous with home and garden gifts this round. In the picture above, only the vines are from my inventory… everything else is a free gift.

FREE Home and garden gifts pictured above:

  • Fence – unKindness – Stained Garden Fence Set (1 prim per piece)
  • Lantern – Velvet Whip – Decorative Tin Lantern Gift (1 prim)
  • Bucket – Cherry House – Courtyard Hut Bucket Gift (1 prim)
  • Vase with Flowers – 22769 – Homegrown Gift Vase with Garden Flowers (3 prims)
  • Hanging Chair – Day Dreamer – Chair Swing Giftie (3 prims)
  • Potted Plant – Chez Moi – Potted Plant (1 prim)
