Dancing with Tears in my Eyes

Dancing with Tears in my Eyes

I love the 80’s.  I’m sure I’ve rambled about it before, but there’s something about that decade that really makes me happy.  It could be the madness of the fashion, it could be that amaaaazing music, the music videos peppered with vacant expressions…. or the fact that it was just a little simpler because the internet wasn’t really a thing yet.  I guess that’s a bit weird coming from someone who inhabits a virtual world, but once in a while I long for a bit of time where nobody can get a hold of me.  To be fair, the positives outweigh the negatives for the most part.  I’ll tell you what I do really long for…. massive shoulder pads.

Power Stance

Ok maybe not, but it WAS a total power move to have big shoulders, and pencil thin pant legs, right?  Just roll with me here, I promise I have a point… I think.  Whatever the point is, this iteration on an 80’s theme by Quinnty’s is just so stinkin’ cute that I feel like I’m back in my parent’s house dancing with my dad to a 45 of “Dancing With Tears in my Eyes” by Ultravox.  It’s a whole mood.  You can get yours by joining the Quinnty’s group for 50L, then paying the vendor 1L which will be returned to you (or click, then click the word deliver on the menu that pops up!).

In the Name of Love

These cute banana-inspired earrings come straight from the wonderful Afterparty.  The neon revolution is in full swing there, and you can take part (and take part in Pride celebrations too!) with these sweet free earrings that you can grab by clicking on the vendor (no group join needed!).  There are loads of awesome gifts at Afterparty, so check those out too while you’re at it.

The Chop!

The cute hairstyle that is also making me feel very “that chick in Ferris Bueller’s Day off who spits the coke in Mr. Rooney’s face” (holy niche reference…) is free from Kokolores!  You can pick up your own over at the Hair Fair, no group join required, and it comes in a full fatpack of fun colours.  Check out the Hair Fair today!

Hit the Road

Hit the Road

I jumped into my car and headed for the coast this morning.  A random road trip sometimes does a body good when the walls seem to be a bit closer together than they used to be.  I was supposed to be scrubbing some tiles, but instead the magic of the open road called, so off to the beach I went.  As per usual, who am I to deny the pleading of an inanimate object?

Road Trip!

There’s a new hunt going on at Petite Mort & Oubliette.  The Witchwood sim is always fun to explore, but even more so when you’ve got something to look for.  If you peek through the woods, you’ll find some “Route 66” signs kind of all over the place (even inside the stores) and inside there are all sorts of summery looks that are perfect for hitting the road.  I’m wearing the medium wash jeans that cost just 20L, as well as the feel the freedom tee which is another 20L as well.  I couldn’t help but take a shot (below) of the extremely pretty peach dress too, but can you blame me?  The Road Trip Hunt at Witchwood is running until July 4th, so grab those gifts before they’re gone! (And why not check out the 50% off sale while you’re there!?).

More Free Hair!

While I was at the Hair Fair the other day, I also came upon this free hairstyle from Ade.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and it’s just a perfect easy breezy style for summer vacation goodness.  Just pay 0L, no need to join a group!  The Hair Fair is running until July 4th as well.

Ahh, freedom!

That Friday Feeling

That Friday Feeling

It’s Friday, FabFree!  Oof, I feel like I harp on and on about what day of the week it is, but to be honest I need to remind myself.  I woke up this morning blissfully in the knowledge that it was Saturday, only to have all my hopes dashed when I remembered that it was Friday instead and I still had to commute 5 metres to work.  Anyway, my Friday was made much better by some awesome freebies…so let’s dive in!

Hair Fair Alert!

Yay!  Hair Fair is open (Woohoo! Another MASSIVE event!) and it’s all about donations to Wigs for Kids.  You’ll find many shops are donating their proceeds to this worthy cause, so do take a moment to help out if you can.  You’ll also find that some booths have free gifts in them, so I was super excited to find this cute bob from Exile that you get in a full fatpack of colours – just buy for 0L, no group join required!

Happy Anniversary, Osmia!

Time for another birthday celebration – all the best goes out to one of my faves, Osmia!  They’re celebrating their birthday with a big sale, and a new group gift.  The Sadie skirt is brand new and comes in loads of colours and texures.  I paired it with the Mira Base blouse which is an older gift, but I think they go together quite well.  The Osmia group is free to join, making this outfit completely free!

Chasing the Sun

Chasing the Sun

I’m sure you’re all aware at this point that August is soon coming to a close, and with it it shall take the summer (for the most part…September can still be a scorcher where I am!).  I’m enjoying every minute of those precious rays by strolling down the beach and probably wearing stuff that would make me sweaty in RL.  But you know my SL body doesn’t come with sweat glands, so it’s all good!

A Huge Hat is What You Need

There are so many great gifts at The Hair Fair, I’m sure you’ve been reading all about the goodness here on Fab Free.  I found a fun accessory at the Iconic booth – this enormous chapeau that flops ever so alluringly.  It comes with an extensive HUD to change to a whole host of tropical looks, but I kept it pretty basic with black trim and a cute saying.  And oh, yes.  it’s FREE!

She Still Shines

I have been in a bit of a latex mood recently, and though you might not normally wear this fabric to stroll on the sand, I say just go for it.  I picked up this slinky little dress over at Beauty Factory.  I joined their group for 99L and it was all mine.  There are several other great gifts there too, so the join fee is beyond worth it.  The Vanjie dress comes in both pink and black and is a whole lotta fun. I’ve included the vendor pic below so you can easily see all the details.

Drink it Up

Drink it Up

Sometimes all you need for a great outfit in SL is some cute and fun accessories.  I love chasing down the little extras that make SL looks fun, and I found a few free ones to keep you looking fresh!

Fair Hair

You may have heard that The Hair Fair is going on right now, and boy oh boy is it full of goodness.  A portion of all sales goes to Wigs for Kids, so it’s not just fun but aiming to do some good in the world.  There are also some great free gifts offered up by some of the creators!  I stopped at the Ade booth and there I came across this sleek bob which comes in a full fatpack of fun colours as well as a styler HUD.  They also put out these very on-trend shades out too for free, and I’m having a great time looking imperiously over the rim at people!

Catching Tears

There’s a new free group gift over at Jackalope too, and it’s this amusing little milk carton of “boy tears”.  Don’t you fret though, there’s also a carton of “girl tears” included.  To grab this amusing little addition, just join the Jackalope group for free and click on the vendor by the front desk!

Mhhhhmmm!

A Good Day

Good Day

I had a really good day here on the grid. I found free awesome hair and my letter just keep coming up on the lucky chairs! Does it get better than that?

Little Black Dress?

Why, yes, please! And free? Double yes!  This is the ‘Erica’ two piece dress from La Bella Boutique. This super cute lacy LBD is on the lucky chairs now and can be yours for just a little patience. And, well… luck.  Each piece can be worn separately for even more versatility.  The top looks really cute with a pair of jeans for a more casual look.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • SLink

More Free Hair?

Why, yes to that too, please! I’m still unpacking from the Hair Fair and finding great gifts like this one from No.Match. This is No.Girl and it comes with a sweet fat pack of blacks, browns, blondes and reds as well as a separate HUD for the cute little clips. If you want one too, don’t wait around. The Hair Fair and all it’s gifts will disappear on October 7th!

Wandering Leaf

This month at The Arcade Gacha, Decoy released the sweetest gacha set called Wandering Leaf.  This set is just 50L per play and includes 15 commons and 2 rares with texture change HUDS.  Wandering Leaf is rigged for the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body and has the loveliest gold leaf detailing!  I don’t think you could go wrong with any of the colours in the set, but I really liked the pink with the brown as shown in the ad (which I have included below).

Totally Wigging Out At The Hair Fair!

72113trendy 3_001

The Hair Fair. Guys, unless you live in a cave (if you do, I am coming over to watch ESPN and drink beer) you know it’s a big deal on Second Life. All month there has been a traffic jam as avies crowded, pixel against pixel, to see what the best hair creators on Second Life had to show off, and what freebies they set out to lure us in. Well, now things have gotten a bit less crowded and the level of lag is much more comfortable, so it’s a great time for us guys to go have a look. Most of the free items available at Hair Fair are for female avies, but there are some male and unisex hairs offered plus a hat or two for you to discover. Finding quality male hair as a freebie is quite a challenge, so I wouldn’t miss an opportunity like this if I were you.

My favorite men’s item I found at The Hair Fair this year is offered as a FREE gift from Exile @ Hair Fair. Part of the Jack And Jill Hair Fair Gift, Jack is a stylish modern cut with the top of the head covered by a mesh piece, and the sides and back covered by a hairbase. A unique aspect of this hairbase is that it is offered in 3 hues, and you may manually tint all three of them to get just the match you are looking for. On my avy, I resized the top mesh portion a bit smaller until I got the look I wanted. This is a fatpack and has tons of colors offered in a hud based system. Exile @ Hair Fair gives you everything you need to get it looking perfect for your avi. That’s extraordinary for a FREE men’s hair.

I, much like many guys on Second Life, wear black often. By often, I mean all the time and in every shade imaginable! That’s why I grinned ear to ear when I saw this denim shirt and jacket set from Tori’s Stylez at Retail Therapy! Yes, that is a bit of fuchsia, Fabbies, but no worries. It won’t bite. The Ewan SE- Fuchsia Black Jacket & T-Shirt is a brilliant bit of color while catering to our very masculine addiction to black. Tori’s Stylez at Retail Therapy offers this one-piece garment in five sizes for easy fitting. It is a 10L hunt prize on The Summer Hunt 2015. You are looking for a very small brightly colored star. This is a darned fine looking hunt prize, I hope you enjoy it.

* Guitar and in my case musical talent not included *

Another fantastic FREE gift at The Hair Fair is this long hair offering from Asset @ Hair Fair! The Miracle Hair comes in a fatpack of colors and uses a hud system to change them. Also worth noting: it comes with a set of six head alphas to help make your head invisible under the hair. It is an interesting way to handle that, and I think I will probably be able to use the alphas on other outfits as well. So, it’s a great bonus feature! The hair itself is mesh and has a true rock and roll look! So much so, that once I had it on, I had to run out and buy a guitar! The fit on my head shape took a bit of fiddling to perfect, and I like to wear a hairbase as well, so I added one under it for a finishing touch. If you like long hair this is a must pick up!

I could have worn black leather, but I knew you would be expecting it now that I am a rock star. I decided to switch it up with a very nice FREE Group gift jacket from SZD Fashion. The Leather Jacket in Light Brown caught my eye not simply for the brown tones in it, but rather for the distinct olive tones. The overall texture appears dark but look closer. You will see the nicely balanced tones are very pleasing and give you a wide range of color options when matching it with your other clothes. Another surprising feature of this jacket is that you get it in two sizes of Fitmesh! I don’t have much Fitmesh yet, but this jacket fit me perfectly when I slipped it on. Kudos to SZD Fashion for making a great fit easy!

It has been quite a fun day, from the hustle and bustle of a very successful Hair Fair event, to getting so excited over a FREE hair that I bought a guitar and nearly went on tour! Oh! Time to start saving for a tour bus! Have fun everyone and since I rarely tell you this, then I should say it again: Thank you for letting me do what I love at a level I always aspired to. Take care and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler
