Gone Glamping

Gone Glamping

I’m bundling up and ready for the gusty blasts that November are sending my way!  I still want to spend some time outside, of course – so I totally found the perfect outfit for a camping excursion out in the middle of nowhere! (And by camping, I mean pretending to be very woodsy while having literally no idea what I’m doing!)

Bundle Up

This really fantastic coat and top set come courtesy of Atik and is their newest group gift.  I joined the group for free and have literally been living in this duo since I picked it up!  Isn’t it brilliant?  It takes all the guesswork out of which layers may work together when it comes to coats and tops, and the detailing on it is top knotch.  A great addition to any inventory!

Strolling Up the Avenue

I needed a great pair of pants to go with my new top and coat – luckily The Beautiful Ones have got me covered.  I found their booth over at The Avenue event, and much to my delight there were free gifts to be had!  These corduroy pants are perfect for pretending you’re the outdoors type while still looking unfailingly chic.  Join The Avenue group for free, and pick these bad boys up!  There are a bunch of other gifts there too!  Woohoo!

Last Minute Sassy-ness

Last Minute Sassy-ness

This is SO last minute! We only have two days…well a day and a half technically… to visit the Hair Fair. That’s right, the Hair Fair will close up shop on October the 7th. That means ya gotta hurry!

Short and Sassy

I found this lovey short hair style I’m showing off at the Mina booth for free. This is Lily and it comes with two HUDs. One is a ‘Dip Dye’ color and the other is a Style HUD. You can add and remove a few extra bangs. It’s super cute with and with the bangs. Lily comes in an Unrigged version as well.

Sassy and Short

I’m also enjoying the latest Group Gift from The Beautiful Ones: the sassy tank and vest set Moa. The top and the denim vest are separates so you can get a lot of wear from just one gift. The Texture on the vest is really fantastic. Don’t you just love finding something fun, pretty AND extremely well made?!  You’ll find ‘Moa’ in your notices if you are already a member of The Beautiful Ones group. If you aren’t a member… whatcha waiting for? It’s 25Lto join but it’s so worth it.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Fab Free Designer of the Day – 09/22/2018 – The Beautiful Ones

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs and welcome back to the blog! I’m glad you’re here, and always happy to be here myself. This week’s edition of Designer of the Week is all about The Beautiful Ones. I know that sounds like you guys, doesn’t it?! Really though, The Beautiful Ones is a ladies clothing brand that has been an established part of Second Life for quite some time now. I would describe their style of clothing as cute, casual, and relate-able. You will find some dressier items, but most of the clothes are the everyday type. Cute outfits and dresses you’d want to wear often.

One of the things that stands out about The Beautiful Ones for me, are their gifts. You can almost always guarantee that a TBO gift will be in their “signature” shade of dark teal blue. Right now there are two The Beautiful Ones store group gifts in the before mentioned shade of teal. The TBO group is currently just 25 linden to join. There are also two Midnight Madness boards, one requires The Beautiful Ones group tag, and the other is open for everyone (no tag needed). Lastly, but never least, there is a table with a hand-full of gifts. I think you’ll notice right away the colorful Fabulously Free in SL group joiner on the wall. You guessed it, these gifts are the gifts by The Beautiful Ones for other store-associated groups like Fab Free. You may even recall this post by Nevi in which she features the current TBO gift for Fab Free group members. Not yet a member of the Fab Free in world group? Have no fear, the Fabulously Free in SL group is always free to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Color Me Beautiful

Color Me Beautiful

Happy Tuesday FabFree!

I hope everyone’s week as set off to a great start! I have had quite a busy morning today, but while browsing our FabFree group gifts I saw this cute and festive romper and couldn’t resist the urge. I was born and raised in Cali, and my inner Cali girl, or as I call it, my “inner hippie” loved the colors and ran for the hills with it. Snickers. The Mandala Romper by The Beautiful Ones, is an beautiful freebie for our members here at FabFree! The colors in the design on the top half of the romper are so bright and fun and the teal used on the bottom half and through out the outfit was eye-catching and drew me to this piece! You can see some previous coverage done on this creator by Love Trill, [here].

Don’t forget to wear those FabFree group tags, when heading over to The Beautiful Ones to grab this free group gift! If you aren’t a member the Fabulously Free in SL in-world group is free to join!

You Could Have Knocked Me Down With A Feather

FabFree: You Could Have Knocked Me Down With A Feather

Hey there Fabulous Readers!  I am kicking back in a hammock today to show off a sweet free find I thought you might like to hear about.

Fine Feathers

This sweet little feathery summer top is available at The Beautiful Ones as part of a two piece outfit for the Fitmesh Fanatics inworld group (which is free to join).  The Ona Outfit comes with the feather top as shown on my avatar, but a totally different pair of denim shorts which are nice too (just not shown today).  I’ll include the vendor ad below so you can see them too.

I had just picked up these awesome new shorts by N-Core at Kustom9 and could not take them off.. and so you see a bit of a mix and match.  You know me…  I love a good freebie, but I can’t stop myself from shopping either!

2 Pc. Ona Outfit Sizes Included:

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Chasing The Sun

TBOSabina
Good morning Fabulouses!  I hope you all had a relaxing weekend :).  It may be that dreaded day of Monday again and it’s back to the old grind, but I did find a little sunshiny something that may brighten your day a little bit.

A Tropical Treat

At TBO (The Beautiful Ones) on the wall behind their reception desk, you’ll find several group gifts with a one time group join fee of 25L.  Most of their group gifts are in a teal shade of blue, which is great for me, because I really like that colour!   One of the more recent gifts is this tropical Sabina Outfit that includes the printed top and long skirt.  You can even wear these two items as separates if you like.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya & Isis
  • TMP

I Need Vitamin Sea!

Where Ever You Are

Hello there, Fab Free!  Once again, Astrid inspired me, this time by mentioning warm weather (another great idea, Astrid!).  I, too, have been feeling the need to escape gray days, sweaters, and chilly temperatures.  The Salt Water sim provided the perfect tranquil hideaway for Ripley and I.  We enjoyed a lovely afternoon strolling on the beach, walking off those extra midnight margarita calories from Friday night (thank you, Love!).  With nothing but gently crashing waves, the cries of far off seabirds, and tangy breezes, it was a welcome relief from the daily grind.

No Jacket Required

Grateful for the ideal climate and mild temperature, I happily slipped into Abril, a sleek, embroidered free lucky board prize from The Beautiful Ones.  In my last post {HERE}, I showcased a gorgeous TBO gown, and mentioned all the goodies that are included with the 25L join fee for the group.  The chance to win Abril in several different shades is one of those extra bonuses.  The sienna version I am wearing today features an intricate embroidery pattern layered above a background that fades from a deep, reddish brown to a pale, creamy hue.  Sleeveless and figure hugging, this frock is fit for a sophisticated night out, or a casual afternoon with friends, depending on how you accessorize your look.  The prize package contains mesh in standard sizes (XXS, XS, S, M, L) and the coordinating alpha layer.  By adjusting the alpha of my Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to wear the classic style just fine.  To add Abril to your inventory, simply head over to The Beautiful Ones, activate your group tag, and make the short trip upstairs where you will find the group-only lucky chair.  While you are there, give the midnight madness boards a tap, and you might be adding more loveliness to your wardrobe, as well!

The Lucky One

Shine On

After donning my new sheath-style dress, I turned around to see Ripley perched on my chair with the Mandala Marketplace shop brought up on my screen.  Upon noticing my raised eyebrow, he gave me a sheepish grin, nudged the monitor, then jumped down so I could check out his latest find.  The pupster struck gold (literally), at 70% off no less, with these Luck earrings in gold and brown.  In a large, hoop style with a beautiful metal texture, and dangles, they matched the tone of my frock perfectly….all for only 57L!  With my free dress and sale priced earrings, I splurged, and scooped up the coordinating Luck necklace for 70 percent off as well.  The necklace has a resize option, which is handy because it comes in a unisex version, and was a bit large for my figure at first, but after a little tweaking, it worked well.  I tossed my canine pal a few Ripley-snacks as I added my new baubles to my outfit, grabbed his leash and his favorite ball, then we journeyed over to the beach for a welcome, stress-free break.  I hope you have a relaxing Sunday yourselves, dear readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
