In Like a Lion

In Like a Lion

Hello Hello Fab Free! March is coming to an end already, sometimes it seems like the month flew by. With the end of the month coming near, I always check to make sure I’ve picked up any group gifts I can. In my efforts I picked up these high-waist pants from MoDanna, and a lion septum piercing from Swallow. Additionally, The Cart Sale at The Wash continues on. What’s not to love about tons of items at just 10 lindens each?!

These well-textured black leather high-waist pants are a must have! They are the FREE March group gift at MoDanna, and the inspiration for this outfit. These fully mesh pants come in standard mesh sizes, a Belleza fit, Slink fit, and a Maireya fit. Also included in this gift is an applier hud for a blue pentagram bustier style top, which isn’t shown. I didn’t realize it was included until I’d already picked out another top. Whoops! To get this awesome gift, head over to MoDanna and wear your group tag. The MoDanna group is currently FREE to join, so don’t miss this one!
In Like a Lion Close Since I goofed missed the top in the MoDanna gift, I picked out this cute little halter top by Kita’s Sideshow at The Cart Sale happening on The Wash sim. There are a few different versions of this mesh top available for 10 lindens each at the Kita’s Sideshow cart. Each of them has a playfully macabre graphic. This one shows a poison bottle with the phrase “Drink and be Merry”. It suits my eclectic style well, and for 10 lindens I had to have it!

For a little finishing touch, I picked up another March group gift. This lion’s head septum piercing is the most recent group gift available at Swallow. The septum piercing gift can be re-sized by clicking, and includes a color change hud with several metal texture options. I thought the lion was quite fitting for March! The Swallow group has a one time join fee of 30 lindens, which is more than worth while. Once you’ve got the Swallow group tag, you can pick up this gift and several others!

I hope you like these fab finds as much as I do. Here are the details, Enjoy!

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

Last Minute but Very Sweet

Hello FabFree Folks…  you still have just a little bit of time to get over to the Wash and the Cart Sale!

Last Minute but very sweet

After all the hard work here on the blog ;)   I needed a nice walk through the winter wonderland SL has become in so many spots.  But before I went on a stroll I had to grab this spiffy ‘Hounds tooth coat’ from the London People Cart at the Wash. I love the classic styling and the very generous Designer tossed in the pair of trendy spectacles to top off the look!  I also picked up a pair of cozy earmuffs because… well, I have a lot of ear to cover when the weather turns nippy. These are the ‘London Girl’ earmuffs and they are completely resizable to get a perfect fit. They also come with a HUD to choose eight different textures/colors.

Last minute but very sweet

I also checked out the Secret Wednesday Yard Sale and found some great basics to punch up my outfit. Keeping my legs toasty are the black chenille tights from the ‘Dreary Day’ pack from Sweet Tea Couture. The pack, for system layers and a huge applier HUD, comes with two textures of tights in white, off white, black and grey. That’s eight pairs of comfy tights if you’re counting. And all for 49L. The Yardsale is a little different from the normal Secret Wednesday sales which take place in the merchants shop. The Yard sale is it’s own location and each shop can offer up to five items from 49L to 100L. But it’s one day only! So hurry hurry!

Simple Sleepwear

Snapshot_004
Hi there Fab Readers! I was able to come up for some air today during the busy holiday season and thought I would stop by the blog to let you know that 1 Hundred has set up a late display at The Wash Cart Sale!  Better late than never right?

You still have a week to stop by the display and see all of the 10L sexy offerings, but tonight I am lounging about in the Simple Sleepwear that is available on the cart in a package of two colours (pink and sky) for 10L.  They do come with a teeny pair of panties, I guess I was feeling shy!  It comes with a HUD that is compatible with a ton of mesh bodies, but also comes with system layers too in case you have not jumped on the band wagon yet.

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!

Darkly Beautiful

Hello again FabFree Folks!

Darkly Beautiful

I don’t often go ‘full glamour’ but Rowena’s Designs Cart over at the Wash Cart Sale sort of demanded it. This is the “Adalina” gown on the Cart for 10L. It comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and it’s alpha layer. There is kind of a dark side look to this outfit that makes my inner Goth very happy. The bodice is a very subtle leather look with deepest red highlights.

Darkly Beautiful

I picked up those red highlights in the absolutely gorgeous ‘Adalina’ necklace , also on the Cart.  The necklace comes with a HUD to change the metal, the gems and the hanging jewels. In fact there are six metals choices, six gem choices and six jewel choices, making it a very versatile piece!

Even though the gown is floor length, I picked up the elegant matching ‘Adalina’ Heels for SLink High Feet. They also come with a HUD to change the colored section at the bottom of the shoe. I really do love it when a designer puts together such a well thought out and coordinating outfit. It’s one stop shopping at Rowena’s Designs Cart!

Rowena’s Designs Cart ( and all the other Carts) will be parked at the Wash until January 6th.

Grey Day… in a good way

Even as we’re counting down to the New Year… the Cart Sale is rolling on!

Grey Day... in a good way

I am just continually amazed at the generosity and team spirit of all the designs who participate in the Cart Sale at the Wash. There is a lot of work that goes into producing items for Second Life and for these designers to offer them to us for 10 tiny Lindens… Y’all are Fabulous! Just look at this great sweater dress I found on Encore’s Cart. The build is simply perfect and not to mention gorgeous. This is the ‘Cloe’ dress in black, it’s also available in a soft gray. The mesh dress comes in the standard sizes XS-XL.  Encore has also started putting out really pretty  nails for us on their Cart too. Each five design pack contains manni and pedi appliers for SLink, Belleza, Omega, Eve and Maitreya. I’m wearing the Designer Series pack #7 because… well… owls! I love owls and when I saw these little guys I was smitten.

Grey Day... in a good way

Sometimes, two Carts just seem to have items that work so well with each other you have to pair them up. Even though Ms Calle showed us the ‘Oriels’ Heels here , the Dusk Vera booties from the Lindy Modern and Retro Cart just called my name.  These come with their own alpha so they work with all kinds of feet including System.

The Awesome Cart Sale at the Wash rubs until January 6th so don’t delay too long….!
