Strolling Through a Secret Garden

Posies from a Secret Garden

Hello Fabulouses.  Happy Friday!  I’m popping in with a quick post to share one of the free gifts you can receive as a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  It’s such a cute little number!

Stop and Smell the Roses

The sleeveless tank dress in my photo is the latest gift from Glitter.  Featuring a cheerful floral print scattered across a white background, spaghetti straps, and an asymmetrical hemline, this frock was the perfect outfit for a stroll in the secret garden on the Strawberry Lake sim.  The gift package includes versions for a variety of mesh avatars (none for classic avatars).  To scoop up a copy for yourself, head over to the Glitter, make your way to the back of the shop on the other side of the staircase, and click the vendor.  This budget friendly dress is sure to become a summer time favorite!  There are a number of other free gifts available in the shop, and quite a few lucky chairs and a midnight mania board as well.  I’m crossing my fingers that I will be able to share the mania prize soon.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

Pretty Posies

To keep with the floral theme, I slipped on some LT Rose Earrings from Torakoun Sands that I discovered on the Marketplace for just 49L.  With three delicate rose blossoms and a pair of leaves, these baubles echoed the print of my new frock beautifully.  The text on the Marketplace listing is right on when it states the earrings are simple yet elegant.  I really like the bright pop of color they add to my look and thought they formed the perfect finishing touch.

Well, Ripley has that “I’m about to dig in the soft earth of this garden” glint in his eyes.  Before he gets us kicked out of the sim, I’d better go put a halt to his plans.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Red White and Blue

Red White and Blue
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry it’s been so long since my last post, that pesky Real Life is relentless at times. Needless to say I am happy to be back, I missed you guys! If you live in the States like I do, our most patriotic holiday, Independence Day, is nearly here.  Personally I just want to celebrate with friends and and family and take advantage of the opportunity for some summer fireworks. It wouldn’t be the 4th of July without some red, white, and blue gear to show your patriotic spirit. I picked up two free Independence Day inspired gifts to share, I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Bikini Top – I think this free star shaped bikini top from Dirty Princess is a must-have. Not only is it perfectly patriotic, it’s also something I’d wear all summer, no holiday needed. This free Dirty Princess group gift comes in 2 versions, the one with white ties shown, and one with red ties. The Dirty Princess group is free to join. This free gift is sized for Maitreya only. To get yours head over to Dirty Princess, enter the store at the entrance with the horses, the gift is waiting next to the desk.

The Phone – For a little fun ChicChica put out this cute patriotic cell phone out as a free for everyone gift. There’s no group needed, just purchase the gift for zero linden. This free USA themed phone has a hold pose. You’ll find this freebie waiting on the ChicChica desk.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Misty Summer Morn

Misty Summer Morn

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are pausing during our walk on this misty morning to tell you about a gorgeous dress that I picked it up as a free group gift over at Patty CK Fashion.  It features lacy white fabric accented with bands of geometric patterns in bright, jewel tones.  I just love the contrast between light and dark colors in this frock!  Dora’s off the shoulder design makes it terrific for summer, and maxi dresses are absolutely my favorite go to’s (even in RL).  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Teleport Hub Group, which has a 10L join fee, but as I’ve said before, this is one group that is well worth the investment, because it offers members free gifts across the grid.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

We are off to explore the beautifully landscaped grounds of the Devin’s Eye sim.  Until next time, happy shopping!

A Poet at Heart

A Poet at Heart

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day, I received a message from Sere Timeless, telling me about the Poet’s Heart store.  I am so glad that I followed Sere’s advice and teleported to the shop, because I picked up this gorgeous Marisol outfit as a free group gift.

Romantic, Poetic Style

Featuring a multi-tiered maxi skirt with a generous hem, and a cropped top with loose sleeves, this outfit has a gypsy vibe that I just love.  Its color scheme of blues and aquas brought back memories of the beach glass I collected on the sand as a young girl.  While the top is constructed with a satiny, shimmery fabric, the skirt’s layers are decorated with a floral pattern that adds visual interest and texture.  Although there is no version specifically made for mesh avatars, by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara body, I was able to achieve a perfect fit.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head on over to the shop, switch to the Poet’s Heart group (it’s completely free to join) and click the vendor.  While you’re there, you might want to scoop up the three other free gifts for group members as well.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS
  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • Alpha layer for skirt and top (parts can be worn separately)

Thank you so much, Sere, for letting me know about the Poet’s Heart shop!  I know I will be stopping by there frequently for more lovely additions to my wardrobe.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Count Your Rainbows Not Your Storms

Count Your Rainbows Not Your Storms
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope your work week is off to a fantastic start.  I wanted to pop in with a quick post sharing a cute and colorful cropped top that I picked up for free.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

A Rainbow of Colors

My sleeveless top features a high neckline and a hem that falls just above the midsection, which makes it just perfect for summer.  The bold stripes of color are a bright and cheerful reminder that June is Pride Month, a time to promote acceptance of others.  According to bustle.com, the month of June is a time to “envision a future where everyone is respected and accepted.”  I’m happy to show my support for the community by wearing the Ami Crop Top Pride Flag Print shirt, which the generous designer is offering as a gift over at Stories & Co.  The free package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M (includes alpha layer)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • VTech

Ripley and I are off to do some housework.   Well, actually, I think Ripley is planning to laze around and watch me vacuum up all of the dog hair he has scattered around, but at least I will have company while I do so ;).  There is a reason why German Shepherds are sometimes referred to as “German Shedders.” Until next time, happy shopping!

Shake it Off

Shake it Off

Hey Fab Free!

There’s nothing quite like a night on the town to let out all the stress of the week.  I found my way over to a place that specializes in neon, just to shake it all off!

It’s the Top

I put on this one-sleeved crop top that I picked up for free by joining the group over at SpectacledChic (cute name, right?).   This top comes with an HUD to change the colour of both the top and the hem around the edges so you can customize your look.  The top is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Off the Cuff

I grabbed my really cool ear cuff from Austris on Marketplace – They’re selling this gorgeous piece for just 1 Linden!  it comes with an HUD to change to a bunch of different metallic hues.  I had to play around with it a bit for it to fit nicely, but with a bit of tweaking I think it looks very lovely!  Go grab it!

I hope you got a chance to unwind this weekend!

Daring Summer

Daring Summer

Hey Hey Fab Free!

I’m just hanging out at the beach today, my sleek locks flowing gracefully down my shoulders, and a pretty flower tucked behind one ear.  I’m feeling decidedly tropical, and ready to bask in the glow of the rays of the sun.  Bring on that summer!

Be Scandalous

My long-sleeved beachwear (or is it lingerie…I don’t really know, but I’m turning it into beachwear, because this is SL and I said so) is a gift at the Vanity event from Scandalize.  There are loads of lovely things to buy there, and for those who make the trek they’ve put out this free gift.  Just join the Vanity Event group, and then find this hot number near the entrance.  It comes in this gorgeous nude hue, which I think makes any tan pop.  You could also wear the top as a shirt, as the top and bottom go on separately.  You can also wear the little garters or leave them off, which might have been advisable for the beach, but I’m throwing rules out the window today! Sweet!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Tell Me the Truth

It’s that time again!  It’s Truth VIP hair time!  If you haven’t joined the group yet, you really should.  For 350 Lindens, you get a gorgeous fatpack of hair each month.  This month’s offering is Fiji, the long sleek ‘do you see on me.   It comes with a stylist HUD so there are so many different options of how to wear it, as well as the flower tucked behind the ear, which you can move around to fit your look.  Gorgeous!  You can find this Truth hairstyle in the group notices, so no need to fight lag to grab it for yourself! Whee!

I think I see a drink in a coconut that has my name on it!

A Gown Fit For a Sexy Princess

Pure Elegance
Hello Fabulouses!  Recently Love shared a post about the uber-sexy free gift for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group from Sexy Princess.  While I was in the shop scooping up the red mini dress for myself, Ripley pointed out another free gift – this gorgeous, white gown.  I couldn’t resist and am excited to tell you about it today.

Elegant and Sophisticated

From its halter style neckline to its sweeping hem, this dress will show off your curves beautifully.  The back swoops down to just below your shoulder blades, allowing your skin to be caressed by the summer breeze.  The fabric features realistic wrinkles at the waistline and a subtle sheen.  It’s both dressy enough for a formal night out, and also simple enough for an afternoon of shopping.  Best of all, it’s a free gift for members of the SL Frees and Offers Group, which is completely free to join.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

I’m not sure how much longer this gift will be available, so if you like it as much as I do, I’d recommend a quick trip over to Sexy Princess to pick up a copy for yourself.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Beware: Hungry Designer Zombie

It's Time for Breakfast!

Welcome to breakfast, Err I mean hello Fabulous Readers.  I have resurrected the old classic Stan to bring you another free outfit from the big sale over at Kauna.  As I mentioned in my last post, most of the store is set for sale at zero Linden dollars.  I picked up a spiffy suit there yesterday, and spied a free role play/future Halloween outfit that I just couldn’t resist.

I’m Hungry….. Feed Me

Mr. Attack Dog Scardey Cat began to look nervous as I put on the shredded suit, started trembling when I wore the creepy zombie skin, then took off for the hills with his tail tucked between his legs as soon as I wore the angry face attachment!  I can’t say I blame him, though.  With realistic stains on the ripped fabric, and the pasty, bloodstained complexion, I don’t think I would have hung around long either… Ripley snacks or no Ripley snacks!  The free package includes so many items – it’s an incredible bargain for the grand price of zero lindens!  It is designed for classic avatars, hence the switch to the old Stan, but it was well worth the change in appearance.

What’s Included:

  • gray blazer with a white shirt
  • gray blazer with a blue shirt
  • navy blazer with a white shirt (shown)
  • navy blazer with a blue shirt
  • trousers in both gray and navy
  • handkerchief (not shown)
  • socks
  • zombie brogues (shoes)
  • zombie skin
  • angry face attachment (not worn for picture)
  • resizer
  • alpha layer

If you haven’t checked out the huge sale over at Kauna, I’d highly recommend you head there ASAP.  It won’t last long!  As for me, I’m going to hang out here under this sign for awhile in hopes that someone will bring me food…….after all, it does say “Zombie Feeding Area.”  A guy can dream, right?
