Dressed Up from The Free Dove

091522 - Dressed Up from The Free Dove - 01

The Free Dove, as most of you probably already know (since its been blogged numerous times here), has been around for nearly 18 years. It is the SLife’s work of ⒹoⓋє (palomma.casanova) and she has poured her heart and soul into it. You must join the group and wear the tag, it’s free to join, and once you do then you can click on all the gifts that you want on the bottom floor of the venue.

For this post I decided to get dressed there. Don’t worry, I kept clothes on…but as I shopped I picked up things I wanted to share with you and worked to coordinate them together to see how much of a look I could create. Please note there are loads of other awesome items too that I could have continued with but did not want to totally overwhelm you.

  • The first thing is this pretty little black dress from REED. Aline blogged it back in February of 2021 in the animal print, so go check out her styling too! The dress is fit for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya Physique and Venus bodies. The HUD allows you to change it between 6 prints/colors.
  • REED also has the heels I’m wearing. They also are fit for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya Physique and Venus bodies and have 6 colors on the HUD.

There are four other free things to show you still. I had to accessorize this look, of course.

  • One more item set from REED is the jewelry. My bracelet, necklace (and hiding earrings) are all available in one box and are unrigged and resizeable.
  • Next, my hair is a gift from FAGA. It comes in large and small, has 4 style choices on the HUD and 82 colors! There are more customization options on the HUD, too. Caroline wore it in another color back in August of last year.
  • Finally for my makeup: my nails are a gift from GO! Makeup fit for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, Signature Alice and Slink. The HUD gives 8 nail polishes to wear. And my lipstick is a sampler from Shiny Stuffs with 3 red colors. They are for Lelutka Evo & Evo X only.

Until next time!

Romper Room

Romper Room

Yay!  It’s Friday!  I’m feeling a little playful today in my new romper.  I’m all about the child-like pattern, since it conjures up play dates and trips to the park and ice cream.  Then again, a lot of things conjure up ice cream for me… hmm…

On Dove’s Wings

You never know what’s new at The Free Dove.  Quite often, you’ll find some great new items that have just been placed out.  It’s hard to keep track, and it’s fun to try to.  I heard that WellMade recently updated their gifts there, and my romper is one of the three new items.  You can pick it up by joining The Free Dove group for free and clicking on the gifts on the table.  There’s also a really cute top and a new pair of shoes.  Plus all the other bajillion free gifts!  Have fun!

Happy Monday Fabbies!  I’m in a bit of a contemplative mood today, so I won’t spend all my time blathering – time for a quick post!

Festival Vibes

Festival Vibes

I am totally ready for even more Summer vibes, FabFree.  You know, the kind that involve loud music, questionable food choices and possibly a ride or two.  I love the hippie-summer of love-sorta vibe going on right now, and I’m totally ready to eat potatoes that are inexplicably cut into a spiral shape.  What does that have to do with summer music festivals?  Absolutely nothing.  Read on!

Peace and Love

I almost plotzed right out of my seat (ha) when I saw that Alaskametro was participating in this month’s Free Dove Caring Hands Hunt.  You all know I love me some Alaskametro, and I will crow about it until forever.  Not only do we get their amazing makeup and nail polish this time around, but also some awesome clothing too.  I love every minute of it.  To take part, you’ll have to join The Free Dove group for free, then head to both The Free Dove and Alaskametro to find 5 prizes in each location.  You’re looking for festival passes.  You’ll see all the size info and other prizes (like skins and tattoos etc) in the ad below!  You’ve got until June 30th to grab them!

Heavy Reading

Heavy Reading

Time to get some serious studying done.  I feel I’ve been lax in the cultivation of my grey matter.   As Poirot would call them “zee little grey cells”.  So, I’ve gathered up some edifying reading material, and I shan’t put down this serious tome until I am feeling decidedly more intelligent.  Now, where are my brainy specs?

Non-Blonde

The Free Dove is back with another of their great monthly hunts.  This time, featuring BlondeQueen!  They’ve gathered up some very professional looking garb to keep you on track with everything you need to get done today.  To take part, just join The Free Dove group for free, and look for the little kawaii cats hiding around the building.  You’ll find 5 at The Free Dove, and 5 at the BlondeQueen mainstore.  Check out the key below for all the different goodies!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Happy Anniversary, Magika!

One of my absolute faves, Magika, is celebrating 16 years on the grid!  That’s quite an accomplishment!  To celebrate, they’re having a 40% off sale, and there’s a new group gift.  The group is free to join currently, and with your group join, you’ll be able to pick up these very versatile bangs that are a useful addition to any hair collection!  Also great for hiding scars! (ha!)

What are you doing to challenge yourself today?

Horses & Daisies

Coming Soon

Hey Fabbies! Here I am again to show you some delayed holiday goodies. I always tend to be slow collecting stuff up on SL this year, due to RL coming up and grabbing me away from my downtime! So I’m still showing Easter goodies! I brought some horse friends along for the ride too, and they are so cute. ❤

Daisies 🌼

This dress is an Easter dress, but it’s very versatile and could be worn throughout the spring season. Look at those daisies! Super cute. You will find this little number at the Hippity Hoppity Hunt @ Malus Park. Ari-Pari has 4 dresses available in pink, teal, yellow, and purple. Each dress has this lovely daisies pattern on it. You are looking for the green egg to find these dresses, and each prize costs 5L on the hunt! You have until April 30th to do this hunt.

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Kupra

Hair Hunter

Second, my pretty hairstyle is a hunt prize on the Free Dove Hunt this month! The designer featured this month is Alli&Ali Designs. You can pick up 5 free prizes at Free Dove, and 5 free prizes at the Alli&Ali Designs mainstore. Each prize comes with a really pretty colour hud and styling options. You are looking for a little shopping bag with a heart on it to find the prizes at both locations.

See you soon, FabFree!

Meet-Cute

Meet-Cute

It’s an excellent day for a trip to an art gallery. I find that most days are, but today seems to be a particularly arty type of day.  I’ll just wander about pretending I know things about art, and maybe I’ll have one of those moments that only happens in movies where some extremely handsome and tall fellow stands beside me and comments on the brush strokes of a certain painting and we fall desperately in love.   Stranger things have happened… especially in SL!

It’s Magic!

The Free Dove is hosting a heck of a lot of fun hunting this month, with not one, but two hunts – and lots of free gifts.  The Caring Hands hunt is what I focused on, with two prizes at The Free Dove from each designer that is participating.  I was particularly taken with this pretty and somewhat holographic dress by WitchCraft.  Isn’t it cool?  To get it, just join The Free Dove group for free, then look around for the little Easter baskets which contain all the gifts.  You can find all the information about the hunts going on right HERE.

Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Alice
  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Petite
  • Maitreya

Therapy

The artwork I’m pondering so deeply (or you know, waiting for my prince Charming to appear) is free courtesy of ArTherapy.  At their location, you’ll find a little art gallery nestled in a garden, with some fun free gifts to pick up while you’re there.  You can also visit their coffee shop, Brewed Awakening (such a good name) next door for some other gifts too…and of course, some coffee.  Join the free group and you can get these two canvases to decorate your abode.

Ooh, here comes a candidate!  How’s my hair?
