FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Red & Green

Red and Green

Red and green should never be seen, except for in the washing machine, they say.   But, I always add “and at Christmas”.  I don’t know, I’ve always felt they look pretty nice together actually.  People do like to come up with random rules, like people with red hair shouldn’t wear pink.  Pish-posh.  Wear what you like.  And especially during the Holidays!

More Shops and Hops

Shop and Hop has been open for a hot minute now, and the crowds have dwindled a bit.  It’s the perfect time to make the rounds, or cherry pick what you like from this massive event.  OR, knowing some of you out there – just unpack the stuff you’ve picked up.  However you’re doing it, it’s an event not to be missed.  Here’s what I found for free at Shop & Hop, no group join is required to get these awesome gifts:

  • FREE shorts by The Annex sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy & Maitreya with 3 different textures in the HUD
  • FREE ear muffs by C’est La Vie (you can also change them to green in the HUD)
  • FREE personal falling snow by GA.EG.
  • FREE hair by Vanity hair in a pack of natural colours

Shop and Hop is running until January, so you’ve still got a good swathe of time to get’er done.  You’ll find all the info, and links to every shop HERE.

And Also…

You may be wondering where my lovely sweater comes from, and I (of course) have an answer for you!  It’s the latest group gift at COCO!  This store is a must visit if you’re looking for some awesome basics to add to your wardrobe, and there are plenty of free group gifts to keep you happy.  Join the group for free, and click on the vendor, and this lovely Christmassy sweater is all yours.

I was shopping around and ran across The Annex which has a very nice selection of period (role play) outfits as well as everyday looks that you will want to check out.  In the huge pile of free gifts I found this sweet dress that was made to pair with pearls and great handbag.  I am ready for lunch with the girls; where my girls at?

The Annex is having a sale!

A HUGE sale I might add, and it ends tonight! So hurry hurry over there before then because every single piece is on sale for only L$50 and fatpacks are L$125! Annnd they have loads of group gifts, so I decided to show you some from both. I love that The Annex offers lots of cute, well made, modest clothing. That can be hard to find in SL these days. Let’s get started!

  • First up is this pretty little white top and denim skirt. I added the necklace as well that I bought on sale. The top is a FREE group gift fatpack and comes in 12 colors. The denim skirt is part of the sale and I bought the fatpack, which has 7 colors. Both fit Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya bodies. The choker is part of the sale and is unrigged. It includes a color change HUD.
  • In the center we have one of my most favorite outfits I bought. The top has flamingos on it! It is part of the sale. The shorts are as well and both fit the same bodies: Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya.
  • The last photo is just cozy. Its a comfy pair of capris that are a FREE group gift and come in a fatpack of 10 colors. The slouchy tunic/dress is on the sale. Both fit the same bodies as above: Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya.

  • The beautiful little dress on the left I bought in the sale. You need to go and check out all the color/print options as there are so many it was hard to choose what I wanted. This dress fits….you guessed it: Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya.
  • Next we have my favorite to in the whole world! I would so wear this in RL. Just look at those long luscious sleeves. I bought it on sale in 2 colors. I got the skirt on sale too in two colors. Both fit Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya.

It’s always fun to be a bit of a magical entity when inworld.  I never know when the fancy will strike to don my wings and go cause a bit of a ruckus.  I know I say it often, but isn’t it nice to have a place to escape to where we can be whoever or whatever we want at the click of a button?  It’s just one of those magical SL things, I guess!

Welcome Aboard!

The Annex *just* signed up to our Designer program, meaning that they’ve got a gift for members of the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group!  This very pretty tiered dress has all the details you’re longing for in a sweet frock, plus it comes in a fatpack of six different lovely shades to match whatever mood you’re in.  To get it, make sure you have the FabFree tag active (our group is always free to join) and then head over to the gift section where you’ll find a grey gift box (pictured below) that contains this lovely gift.  We’re so glad to have you with us, The Annex!

Subtle Urges

Subtle urges

Hey FabFree! This week is just flying by! before you know it, it’ll be Friday and time for weekend fun. But before all that, I have some fun casual but put together looks to show off for you. It’s always fun to dress up or dress wild here on the Grid. But I always find myself drawn to some of the more subtle “everyday” outfits. Maybe I’m just a little boring…

Anyway… I found this super cute sweater over at The Annex on their Teleport HUB gift board. Which, of course means it’s free to us Teleport Hub group members! And it’s not just this delicious cobalt blue… it’s a whole fatpack! That’s twelve colors to choose from. You’re bound to find one or two colors to love. The Teleport HUB group is a measly little ten Lindens to join and that gets you access to hundreds of free gifts all over the Grid.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Crowned

Crowned

Hello again, FabFree. After Aline’s post about all the great loot over at the Halloween Shop and Hop I had to go check it out myself. And if you haven’t gone over yet… why not? There are so many gifts, plus gachas and great deals to be had.

Crowning Glory 

Let’s start at the top, shall we. I am sporting the October Group Gift from Luas and it’s just spectacular! This is the Solar Crown and you can pick it up for free if you are a member of the Luas group. While there is a one time fee to join the group, it’s well worth it just for the tons of free gifts. There’s even a whole wall of past gifts to pick from. The crown comes with a HUD to change the colors of thermoses, the halo and the horns.

Hoppin’ an’ Shoppin’ 

Now for our Shop and Hop gifts. My new hair style is the free gift from Sintiklia called “Hazel”.  I love the wispy bangs which you can turn on and off if you please. You also get a HUD for the “Classy” set of 32 colors. Plus, you get a Tinter so you can get that perfect shade you want.

My new spell binding top and shimmery skirt are both from the “Fionna” gacha in the Annex shop. For just 25L per play, I was able to pull the top and the skirt in my favorite color: purple, of course! Now if purple isn’t your thing… Fionna comes in six colors for you to choose from.

Sizes Available

  • Maitreya

Let’s Get Spooky!

Let's Get Spooky

Hello Fab Free! This is absolutely my favorite time of year. This is when I can be as spooky as I want to, and no one seems to mind. That said, I think my level of excitement over the Halloween Shop & Hop events might have been the most excitement I’ve felt about an event all year. With several sims full of festive Halloween goodness and freebies, I can’t imagine not being excited. That said, I have several of the free Halloween Shop & Hop event gifts to share with you. I sincerely hope you love them, I do.

As Aline mentioned in her recent post “The Magic Words” there are 8 total Halloween Shop & Hop sims. Most (if not all) of the participating shops have a free gift, with no group required. Some gifts will require you to pay 1 linden,  however you will be instantly refunded. For this look I picked up the free gifts from Pink Cream Pie, #Adored, The Annex, On a Lark, and ChicChica. As usual you can keep reading for details about each free gift, or scroll to the end for full credits and links.

Pink Cream Pie

My thoroughly blood splattered top is the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by Pink Cream Pie. This gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colored tees all with generous amounts of blood splatter.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy

#Adored

The free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by #Adored is the cutest little brow tattoo. It reads “Spooky” with the option of wearing it on the right or the left side, in cursive or bold lettering, each with the choice of bold or faded styles. This tattoo comes in tint-able BOM layers only, which gives the added option of having the tattoo in color.

The Annex

I particularly like this fun devil horns headband by The Annex because it glows like neon. It comes in several color choices, so you can wear this fun accessory with multiple outfits. They are also of course free at the Halloween Shop & Hop Event.

On a Lark

I think there’s a rule that says you can’t have Halloween without a black and red manicure. Okay, maybe not, but in my world these bento nails by On a Lark are a must this season. On a Lark has 2 darkly pretty manicure sets as free gifts at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. The ones I am wearing are part of the “Halloween” set that has 4 black and red variations in the set.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

ChicChica

Finally, my creepy cocktail is part of the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by ChicChica. The gift includes two fantastically macabre martinis. Also, each of the Halloween themed  drinks has a bento hold pose. Have fun Fab Free!
