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


Morning Shopping at the Wash

Good Morning, FabFree!

Take the mic

I don’t know about you but it’s an “I need coffee” sort of morning here. I was up late, maybe too late but a little coffee and a little shopping? Now that’s the way to start the day.  I started out at the fantastic Indian Summer Cart Sale at the Wash and found this wonderful mini dress from Zanze. This is the Becca dress in cream I’m showing off. But it comes in several just-as-tasty colors and all for 10L each. The dress includes the standard Mesh sizes XS-L but it has no alpha layer. I found I actually didn’t need one. The dress fits perfectly! Just don’t forget your undies since you aren’t alphaed! 😉

Right next to the Zanze Cart is the always awesome Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes Cart. Lindy has put out a very nice loaded Cart this round with shoes for SLink feet and system feet. I picked the Yeva heels in nude to match up with my new dress.

Last but not least, is a new hair style to top things off. This is the lovely ‘Esra’ from Sentinus and it was one of the current free groups gifts.  As of right now, the Sentinus group is free to join! Plus there is a nice selection of group gifts available, a free SLF&Os gift AND a great Hunt/sale going on! So don’t delay!

At The Beach, Checking Out The Waves!

Whc spring break 1

Hello everyone, welcome to my last post as a staff member of Fab Free. I would regale you with the story of how, when I was a new resident over seven years ago, I relied on Fab Free to find great items to pick up, how I would eventually come to idolize Love to an embarrassing extent, how I revered Carson when he was a male blogger here, and how much I wanted to emulate them both. This blog has been more than a hobby; it was hugely important to me in both my first and second lives. Sadly, though, times do change. While my feelings towards Fab Free have not, I do need to step away from my dream job here in order to focus on other matters at hand.

Before I go, I have to tell you about a few fantastic items. The great Roughnecks T-Shirt shown above is available as a free group gift. It has been a long winter for me and the thought of donning a well-worn, soft cotton tee and shorts is irresistible. This free Group Gift Tee looks very much like a real world garment and is adorned with a cool biker image on both the front and the back. Inside the box is a wide range of versions including tucked, untucked, Mesh, Fitmesh and three different waist widths to help fit with a wide range of Mesh pants. Not only is this going to fit well but this Tee is going to look great with almost any pants you choose to wear with it. I was very impressed with everything included in this box.

The shorts I am wearing come from the unbelievably bountiful Dark Water Designs cart at the Spring Freshness At The Wash Cart Sale Event! Previously, the main item on it was featured by Astrid here, but there is so much more there that deserves a look! These Cargo Shorts in White Canvas look fantastic and inspired me to go seek out some sun. (A good thing too because in real life my legs were about that color). I love the way they look but I should caution you that finding the perfect shirt to wear with them is slightly more complicated since they seem to require a little extra width at the waist at the back. Luckily they look awesome if you go bare-chested too and the little extra work putting together an outfit with them is well worth the effort!

whc spring break2

Also at the Dark Water Designs cart at the Spring Freshness At The Wash Cart Sale Event are these sharp looking polo shirts. My favorite was the Polo Shirt – Nautical package which contains that fun looking print shirt you see me chilling on the beach in. In addition to that design it comes with a hud that gives you two more textures to choose from, a bargain at only 10L! Inset in the picture are two examples of the Polo Shirt – Madras Colors package also available for only 10L. Along with a third color (light blue) included in the texture change hud, these polos are excellent Easter and spring-wear. All put together this was one of the best cart sale carts I have ever seen!

Oddity has a great item they are giving away as a free group gift that is perfect for us spring breakers. The -TopGun- Dark Glasses are sharp looking aviator style sunglasses. A classic eternally popular design, these sunglasses are a good pickup as you prepare to look cool for the coming spring and summer months. Well done Oddity, thank you!

It has been beyond fun serving all of you. In the end, that is what we do here at Fab Free, and that what all of us at here have in common. It doesn’t matter where we are, where we have been, or when we were here at this wonderful institution. What we do, we do out of love for all of you. I have re-launched my own blog and will continue posting there when time permits. I leave you with one final thought: Second Life is an amazing adventure if you open yourself to it and allow yourself to be carried away. The trick is finding what you love and focusing on that. My time here has been my greatest adventure so far, and I want to thank all of you for that. Take care and I will see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Green Hair Don’t Care!

Green Hair Don't Care

This year it seems like the holiday season has stretched on forever, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Just before December 25th Clawtooth sent out a free gift set of red and green hair to their subscriber group. You know what that means, FREE hair! This holiday gift style from Clawtooth named “Lady Juliette” comes in bright lemon lime and vibrant valentine tones. I can honestly say I really like the lemon lime version, not only do I enjoy having candy colored hair once in a while, green is at the top of the list. Not only does it remind me of one of my favorite alternative models, Victoria Von Violence, it’s also a little witch-y.

*** I have realized after the fact that this Holiday Gift from Clawtooth may only be available to existing subscribers. There doesn’t seem to be a “history” option to look at previous notices in the Clawtooth Subscribo. In light of this, I highly recommend joining the Clawtooth Subscribo so that you wont miss out on future gifts.

One thing that can certainly be said about my personal style, especially in Second Life, is that it’s a little bit witch-y. One cart I always go by at The Cart Sale events is the Kita’s Sideshow Cart. The items are always in darker colors, and tend to cater to a fun but somewhat gothic fashion sense. I picked up this ruffled sweater for just 10 linens at the Kita’s Sideshow Cart, among several other things, because really, you can’t get just one! I’m a sucker for a great sweater to begin with, and this one has the added cuteness of the faint snowflake patter in the ruffle at the bottom. Not in to ruffles, or snowflakes? No problem. This pretty dark purple sweater can be worn without the “skirt” portion for a no frills version.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Cart Sale – Loordes of London

London CartOne thing I love about The Cart Sale going on at The Wash, aside from the amazing prices, you can often find an entire outfit head to toe at a single cart. One of those carts is the Loordes of London cart. Each individual piece of this stylish outfit is available for just 10 lindens per item on the Loordes of London cart. I think this look would be great in several settings. You could add a jacket for a business casual look, or wear it out for a date with your significant other. There are several additional items to be had on the Loordes of London cart, all for just 10 lindens each! London Cart Close

Cart Sale – Dark Fae

Dark Fae Heat Wave

I can’t believe the weekend has flown by already! I hope everyone enjoyed it. I don’t know about you but sometimes all I want in the world is to put on my favorite jeans, the comfy ones, not the ones that make my butt look good, and a comfy casual shirt. My love for fashion aside, there are days, even in sl, when I just want to look comfortable! I also recently saw a photo with a quote that said something along the lines of “If I could find a job that paid you for snarkiness, I’d be rich!” I had to laugh at that because yeah, I can be super snarky. With that in mind, and desire for some comfy casual attire, these tops at the Dark Fae Cart for the Heat Wave event are just the thing, comfy casual, and a little snarky! These vested “Say it With Style” tops at the Dark Fae Cart have a different saying per color. Of course the tops are mesh, and they do include several sizes and an alpha layer. These are a great for a playful casual look. Each color is just 10 lindens at the Dark Fae Cart. Don’t wait, the Heat Wave event is ending soon!

Petite Mort – Cart Sale

PM HW

Happy Sunday Fab Free! This Heat Wave Cart Sale Event going on at The Wash is HOT! Once again I find myself genuinely impressed with the items the designers have out for this round. Today I have the pleasure of showing you a little bit of what is available at the Petite Mort Cart. I really love the casual summer style of the clothing selection available at the Petite Mort Cart. You’ll find everything from dresses to bikinis, with most items set at just 10 lindens, including the adorable mesh dress Pru has on in the above photo. I love the sort of patchwork quality to this dress, it’s girly and fun, the sort of dress I want to wear every day during the summer. If you like the sunnies Pru has on, you’ll find them at the Petite Mort Cart as well!

Cart Sale – Soulglitter

Soulglitter

“I go out walking after midnight out in the starlight just hoping you may be somewhere walking after midnight searching for me.”         – Patsy Cline

The Cart Sale at The Wash is still going strong, and if you haven’t been yet, you should go! There are so many great finds this round, it’s hard to keep up. I really like this glittery dress from the Soulglitter Cart. It’s fully mesh and comes with a color change hud to give you a wide range of color options. I think the style of the dress is casual enough for daytime but the shimmery look of the fabric brings it right on in to evening wear. I could see myself wearing this to go have cocktails with the girls! In addition to this great dress, I also got these strappy black heels from the Soulglitter Cart, I know it’s hard to see in this photo but they do have little studs on them and I like that little extra detail. These heels are meant to be worn with Slink High Feet. You really can’t go wrong with this, and considering the dress and the shoes cost $20 lindens together or just $10 lindens each, what’s not to like?!

As usual for the Cart Sale posts, I’ve added in a photo of the actual Soulglitter Cart so you can get a view of all the goodies available. Don’t forget that all Cart Sale items are just $10 lindens!

Cart Sale – Anachron

Cart Sale

I personally have always been fascinated by cultures that are different from my own, especially their art and fashion. These Indian style sarees from Anachron Cart at The Wash are beautiful in both their style and the artful patterns in the fabric. The sarees are fully mesh ensembles available in several vibrant color variations. Each one is just $10 lindens at the current round of The Cart Sale at The Wash! I think it shows in my photo that I was very inspired by these beautiful dresses. I think you will be too. Below I included a photo of the Anachron Cart at The Wash, be sure to stop by and check it out.

Cart Sale – Before Sleep

Before Sleep Cart

There’s a saying that goes something along the lines of ” If you look good, you’ll feel good. ” and I always took that to mean that if you take the time to put effort into your appearance, you’ll feel good about yourself. It’s been my personal experience that it really is true. I know that if I don’t feel good, or am unmotivated, if I take a little extra time and do a little extra to look good, in the end, I feel better. One way I like to accomplish this is by getting my nails done. There’s something about a fresh pretty manicure that just seems to brighten the day!

With that sentiment in mind, the Before Sleep Cart at The Wash Cart Sale is stacked full of bright colorful manicures at just $10 lindens per set. One of the many things I enjoy about Second Life versus Real Life is that it’s ridiculously easy to match your nail polish to your outfit, or to your mood! So visit the Before Sleep Cart, get your nails done, look good, and feel good! Also, all the sets include pedicures as well, and there is a dollarbie gift.

Here are the details, and a little photo of the Before Sleep Cart, Enjoy!
