A Happy Ending for Your Monday

Sea Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  Yesterday in my post {HERE}, I told you about a free outfit and free earrings.  Well, today the pupster and I are back with a second pairing of a free frock and free baubles.  Now that’s a way to make Monday happier for sure!  Unfortunately, the free dress has been replaced with another gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL, which is a butterfly top.

Blossoms Galore

Summer blooms abound on the latest gift from Sweet Willows for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  With slender straps, a plunging neckline and dramatically low cut back and sides, this frock is most definitely for warm summer days.  You’ll be free to soak in the sunshine and have your skin caressed by warm summer breezes with this mini dress.  Delicate white flowers scattered across a solid color background lend a cheery vibe to the outfit.  I chose a sky blue fabric, but with the included HUD, you could also opt for pink, yellow, green or purple, so it’s quite flexible.  You’ll probably want to make strategic use of the alpha layer of your mesh body to preserve modesty while wearing it.  To add this saucy little number to your inventory, activate your Fab Free group tag (it’s totally free to join!), teleport to the shop and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Island Girl

Island Girl

Ripley and I returned to The Free Dove to search for the perfect finishing touch, and spotted just the right earrings at the Rebel Hope display.  The Island Girl baubles come in either the tan option that I am wearing in my photo or a green version.  The beads are the same; it’s just the cording that is different.  Speaking of the beads, it’s almost like they were made to coordinate with my new dress!  Blue-green glass beads sit atop round brownish ones decorated with white blossoms, which echo the pattern on the mini.  Best of all, these earrings are also free.  You just need to be a member of The Free Dove group (which is also free to join).

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Among the Wild Posies

Jumpsuit

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Sunday Evening to you!  The pupster and I found two free items to share with you tonight and help get your Monday off to a wonderful start.

Let’s Jump Right In!

I picked up my Donna Jumpsuit over at The Free Dove as a gift from DM.  This off-the-shoulder style features a loose bodice section layered over a slim waistline, which really flatters your figure.  The trousers portion of this outfit are comfortably loose.  I am quite fond of this pale pink floral pattern, but if that’s not your cup of tea, the designer tucked a HUD inside the folder with two other texture options.  Versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars are included as well.  To add this suit to your wardrobe, you do have to be a member of The Free Dove group, but there is no join fee, so it’s completely free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
    • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
    • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
    • Maitreya
    • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Daisy

That Finishing Touch

With the complex flowery texture on my clothing, I wanted to keep my accessories simple, yet beautiful.  I headed over to Poeme and collected another free group gift, the Daisy Bead Earrings.  These delicate baubles feature your choice of silver or gold metal and six colors for the beads.  Of course, I went with pink to coordinate with my jumpsuit, but with the included texture HUD, I will be able to customize these earrings to match a variety of outfits.  To add the Daisy Bead Earrings to your SL jewelry box, you’ll need to be a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, but since there is no join fee, you can pick up these gems for free.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Discovering a Pearl

Salt Breezes

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I hope the day treated you well.  I can’t think of a better way to wrap up the first work day of the week than a stroll along the shore.  The pupster and I decided to meander along the edge of the sea on the NorderNey sim while the salt breeze playfully ruffled our hair.  Well, I guess there is one thing better….to be walking along the shore in a brand new outfit that you picked up for free.

A Touch of Serendipity

I’m a huge fan of maxi skirts, in RL and in SL, and when I was at The Free Dove gathering free hair to share in our group post {HERE}, this gorgeous Iced Pearl outfit from Luxe Paris caught my eye.  Featuring a dainty tank top with a pretty floral pattern and a sweeping broomstick skirt that is generously cut, this free gift offers simple elegance that can carry you from a walk along a beach to a summer’s eve date.  Pale blue strands in the top coordinate with the glittering waistband of the skirt.  The generous designer packed versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars into the folder, and also included coordinating flat sandals, which you can’t see due to my pose.  To pick up a copy of this gem for yourself, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but there is no join fee.  Just click the vendor and you are good to go for an ocean side stroll yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layers)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Sandals for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink as well as an unrigged version

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Little Dove

Hello Fab Free! I’m glad you’re here. Recently I decided to wander through The Free Dove. I feel like you never know what you might find. Sure enough I found this cute summer outfit by Fatal Fashion that is either new, or I’d probably just overlooked before. It comes with a mesh top, applier shorts, jewelry, sunglasses, and shoes (not worn).

This free outfit is waiting at The Free Dove in the Women’s section back near the wall with the hair. The necklace, bracelets, and sunglasses are all free from scripts which makes them low lag and able to be manually resized. The applier shorts come in 3 color choices, and the top is mesh with a few sizes. The shoes also come in a few different sizes. To get your copy of this cute eclectic (and free!) outfit you’ll need to be wearing The Free Dove’s group tag. The Free Dove group is free to join.

Top Sizes – Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
Shorts Appliers – Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Omega
Shoe Sizes – Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Here are the details!

A Gift From a Dove

Stand Tall

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  The pupster and I are popping in quickly to share this maxi skirt outfit that I picked up as a free group gift over at The Free Dove.  Way back when I was new to SL, someone introduced me to this marvelous shop, where I began my love affair with SL fashion.  Every so often, I return to check out the new arrivals, and this visit did not disappoint!  I came away with a swagger in my step and several new additions to my inventory.

She Has a Gypsy Soul

The Gypsy Swagger Outfit from Eclectique features a halter style top paired with a maxi skirt with a definite Bohemian vibe.  I love the deep, rich color scheme of this gift!  The two pieces can be worn separately, which adds to the versatility of the outfit.  The skirt features a darker waist panel with a drawstring bow hanging down, and a patterned fabric which ends in a slightly flared hemline.  The solid wine colored top echoes the predominant hue from the skirt.  You can pick up this boho-styled set for free, just for being a member of the Free Dove group.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

I hope you are having a lovely weekend!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Kindness

FabFree: Kindness

Hello there Fabulouses!  Today in my blog post, I am going to share news about a couple of free group gifts that put together my outfit today.  One is a new group gift jewelry set by Cae and the other is news about where you can snag this sweet dress and panty set  by Kaithleen’s as a free gift.  Both items come with free group joins, so you don’t want to miss out on this!

Rosa

I can hardly believe the Cae group is free to join, but it is… and when you do activate that “I sparkle” group tag above your head, you can pick up a handful of beautiful jewelry group gifts including the latest addition called Rosa that you see me wearing.  It includes the rose earrings and earrings in the set and comes with a texture change HUD for 3 metal options and 8 different colours for the roses.

New Cae Group Gift

A trip to The Free Dove

Have you been to The Free Dove lately?  There are all kinds of new goodies to snag with your free group access!  I stopped in recently and found that Kaithleen’s has a very generous gift in the Free Dove Building that includes two dresses in two colours each!  I am displaying one of them, which is Bianca in Aqua.  It comes with a sheer and solid option and also includes the Universal Panties that you can match up with the texture change HUD.  (You may already have these panties, because they are also a Kaithleen’s group gift, and I have blogged them a billion times before – they are great for under dresses!)

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
  • Ebody Fine & Curvy

Won’t You Sit With Me For a Bit?

Break Time

Oh, hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m just taking a break from my side gig playing in a band.  I found the perfect shady spot over at Cranium Bay.  How about sitting down and joining me while I tell you about my new outfit?  I picked it up completely for free.

Rock On

The other morning, I was out walking Ripley so a certain someone could sleep in.  Our path just happened to take us by The Free Dove (actually it was a bit out of our way, but hey, we needed the workout).  I decided to wander in and see if there were any new gifts available for the guys, and I was in luck! La Bella Boutique has generously set out the Aber Shirt and Amber Shorts set that I am wearing today absolutely for free for members of The Free Dove group.  One of the best things about this gift is the texture/color change HUDs that you receive for both the top and the bottom, which makes this gift seem like you are getting a week’s worth of clothes all tucked into one neat package.  The shirt HUD offers 13 background color options along with 7 designs to choose from.  Want a plain top?  No problem!  For the shorts, you’ve got 12 varieties at your fingertips.  I really like how the tee clings to your shape and helps show off those abs you’ve worked so hard to achieve.  😉 The pants include an integrated belt that comes in handy along with the option to have normal or loose fit.  If you’d like to scoop up this set for yourself, just head on over to The Free Dove, activate the group tag (there’s no join fee), click the vendor, and boom! you’re in business.  With versions for classic and mesh avatars, there’s something for everybody in the box.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Shirt:  Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Shirt:  Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, Slink, TMP
  • Shorts:  (no classic version) Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Gianni, NX-David, Slink, TMP

Well, the rest of the guys are returning from break, so I have to get back to work.  Thanks for hanging out with me awhile.  Until next time, happy shopping!
