Sitting Pretty with Siss Boom

 

Sitting Pretty with Siss Boom

SL Fashion has changed so much since I logged in for the first time in 2006. But, what hasn’t changed is our desire to find classy unique clothing.

I’ve been a lover of Siss Boom ever since Designer Lestat Reuven opened her doors fifteen years ago. I absolutely love her fresh pretty style AND her affordable clothing! Her whole main line is so different and classy in a range of pastels that speak to a softer, gentler look.

What’s even better is that the Siss Boom group is only L50 to join, and she is always putting out amazing group gifts while leaving previous group gifts up for grabs to new group members. She also runs gorgeous limited special collections like Winter Softly.

While I’ve maxed out my groups in SL and play “group list Jenga” at least three times a week, I can honestly say, hands down, Siss Boom is one of my favorite groups and has never been considered for a cut.

Back in the day, we only had 10 (TEN….TEN!) group spots, and we were excited when they raised it to 25. Now, maxed out at 70 seems like a chore. Why can’t it be 100???? Are you out of group room, too? No problem, you can still slap Siss Boom‘s Lucky Boards for FREE!!!

I can’t tell you how many nice gifts I’ve received through Siss Boom‘s very generous wall of lucky boards. There are at least 30 boards on the main wall, and on Saturday, when Siss Boom is closed for Sabbath (Sundown to Sundown, Friday through Saturday, EST), her outpost has lucky boards on a large wall and on a smaller vestibule wall.

To write this post, I stood at Siss Boom for about 30 minutes today and collected 7 gifts from the board. They were all beautiful, but I really fell in love with this outfit. The Crochet Dress in Creamy can be worn with or without flexi attachments (we old school avies have a lost love for the flexi ;p). The pack also includes mirrors of the attachments so you can choose how to wear them.

So, if you want to spend some time sorting inventory and want to add to your personal collection, head on over to Siss Boom and get some fabulously pretty new duds from those very lucky boards!

Christmas Home Sweet Home

Christmas Home Sweet Home

Hey Hey FabFree! I hope y’all aren’t tired of hearing about freebies and Advent Calendars yet. I have to confess, I get a little frustrated with the Calendars. I never see what the day’s gift is till too late… then I have to pay for it or they don’t let you have it at all! I could say a few more things or mention a few shops… but this is a family friendly blog **grrrr**  ANYway this all leads me to my post today!

Trompe Loeil, one of my most fav home and garden designs has a wonderful Advent Calendar up for us! Yes, I know I just growled about the Calendars but this one is special. See, Trompe Loeil has set ALL of the twelve free gifts out for their 12 days of Christmas at once! It a HUNT! I love it. You can collect as many or as few as you want plus you get to wander the SIM ad have the fun of a hunt. So Cool!

Now, I won’t kid you… this isn’t the easiest of hunts. I pulled a few handfuls of hair out searching. But it’s not Twisted hunt tricky. There’s no decoys or anything like that. Here’s my big hint: Searching door to door. 😉

You have until Dec. 30th to get your hunt on. But if hunting isn’t your thing, Trompe Loeil also has two past years of gifts available for free as well. No group needed! SO Merry Christmas to us!

One quick note: Please read the instructions for the hunt. You need to pick up the free Hunt Hunt as well as the hunt gift boxes. Then you REZ the HUD on your property ( or a sandbox) then REZ each gift box beside the HUD. As you rez, you will be offered the prize via menu.

Coffee Date

Fabfree Post: Coffee Date

The Need for Caffeine

I am in need, desperately, for a coffee date with some of my closest gals. So I set up a cute little shot with some goodies to entice them to show up for a long overdue gab session! I’ve set the mood for relaxation and caffeination that will end up turning into a lovely long catchup session. We all need to have these dates back with our gals in real life soon. I’ve missed it so much, though I’ll never tell in real life 😉

The Goodies on the table are from a Group Gift from Andika comes with Coffee, Berry Ice Cream, and Fruit, the items are animated so you can put them out for your guests and they can eat/drink! Each item is 1 – 2 LI each. Not too shabby for these quality mesh items and they will last a lifetime for your housemates or guests. Have a coffee date with a gal pal, this will have you covered and will add a splash of class.  The Andika group is currently 150L to join.

Excitement

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! My summer break is fast approaching and I’m so excited. Time to get my garden ready, relax and enjoy some time in the sun! This is going to be great and you’re going to be seeing a lot more of me over the next few months! ❤

Nothing’s Better Than a Cute Romper

First up, this adorable romper is a 1L hunt prize from Ari-Pari on the April Hunt. The romper comes in 10 lovely colours, and I chose to wear the dark grey colour today. You have until April 30th to collect this hunt prize, and the hint is: “Gift cards, tulips & succulents… oh my!”

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

Becks

The perfect boots I found to go with this romper are the Becks boots at Pure Poison. I learned from Aline that if you join their free group, you can get any pair of boots in their outlet for only 35L. This pair is in the outlet, and they’re gorgeous!

Sizes Included

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

My Favourite Hanging Bed

The adorable hanging beds behind me are from the adorable Nesting Beds Gacha at Trompe Loeil. This is not a new release, but it is one of my favourite decor items I have ever found in SL. The best part is that this gacha is only 25L per pull to play, so for that low price you can win one of these amazing hanging beds. They have wonderful animations as well. I only have two of these at the moment, but I may just play to win more of these to add to my log home…

Tattoos Galore

The last checkpoint on my list for today are two cute tattoos, which are both free group gifts at Bluebell. I’ve been wearing this one on my back for a few weeks now, but it’s always obscured in my photos. The moon and feathers tattoo on the back is just gorgeous, and it comes in black and gold. The second free tattoo I have to share is the beautiful rose tattoo on my thigh. These are both group gifts at Bluebell, and the group is free to join. These tattoos are BOM only.

Baby Please Come Home

Baby Please Come Home
They’re singing Deck The Halls
But it’s not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

Staying Home for the Holidays

I know many of us are missing our nearest and dearest these days, but let’s not get too down about it all.  I often think about how lucky we are to have the technology to be able to see our family from afar, and I choose to focus on that.  The other thing that keeps me happy is the fact that so many designers are super generous, handing out amazing gifts.  Trompe L’Oeil have been consistently amazingly generous, and they’ve done it again, this time with the completely free Cecilia cottage.  It’s sooooo nice!  I’m totally going to pull up everything I have on my land to start over with this cute cottage.  At 53LI, it’s pretty light on the prims for the size and detail as well.  Head on over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore and click on the vendor just by the front doors, and it will be yours for FREE!  There’s also a sweet bench for free too.

On the 6th Day of Christmas…

I’ve been harping on incessantly about how Christmas isn’t over yet, and I stand by my rantings.  Today is the 6th day of Christmas and Lybra brought to me…. an awesome gift calendar!  for each of the 12 days of Christmas, they’re giving their group members (the group is free to join) a new gift.  I am showing off day 1’s shoes (super awesome platforms sized for Belleza, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink and Tonic) and day 3, which is a classic grey denim shift dress.  Lybra are so generous with their goodies – you’ll find lots of group gifts on the wall too, as well as some lucky chairs (and a FabFree gift too!).
UPDATE:  Lybra is back – Enjoy!

SO for the news that will spark your interest and make you smile, I’ve made the group FREE to join until November 30th, per the traditional PRE-Advent Join ❤

Decoy Duck

Fabfree Post: Decoy Duck (look 1)

Life is like a hurricane here in Duckburg

A whirlwind of hunts, events, and new gifts keep us all quite busy here at Fabfree and I want to give a shot out to the ladies who have been able to handle this with ease, *you all make it look so easy* and grace. I’ve always looked up to how much you all get done during the week as well as your real-life. You ladies have it down to a definite science, however, I’m as sporadic as my posts and just as haphazard.

Decoy‘s Mainstore Hunt – Jack Spice has returned for the season and left 13 pumpkins scattered throughout the waterfall caves behind Decoy for L$25 each! Search high and low for these treasures, while some hide in plain sight, others will need a more careful eye. All items compatible with Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, and Meshbody Legacy. Jack Spice Hunt ends November 1st so you have time to get there and find the goodies!

There is also a free subscriber gift of an exclusive color of the Raquel top, with 3 additional colors exclusively available to VIPs! So make sure you slap that subscriber box at Decoy and go to the history to snag the goodies! Demos are available of hunt items ♥

All of the Jack Spice Hunt Items Fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Legacy

Decoy Main Store Hunt

Fabfree Post: Decoy Duck (look 2)

Looking for a great pose for you and your pet pooch? This Pet Treat Bento Pose is super adorable and it comes with two options, the one pictured above and another option where the left arm is down. Along with the duo pose package comes a mesh bone to toss your pup. This is way too good to be just L$1, but it could only be from the one and only amazing Reve Obscura store! So head over to their marketplace and snag this one because there is no telling if it will remain at this price.
