… in a place, that perhaps you’ve seen in your dreams…

in a place that perhaps you've seen in your dreams

Well, hello there, FabFree. I want you to know… I resisted for as long as I could. But the Spooky Season is upon us. And I must embrace it! Especially when I find such wonderful spooky things at the Shop and Hop.

My gorgeous get up is “Morgana” from Malified. Now this is a new to me designer but I am so impressed! All the things in their Shop booth look just as awesome as this ensemble, I had a hard time not emptying my wallet right there! I’m glad I took the time to look around because there were several other free gifts scattered around to find. Morgana comes with everything you need even the shoes and stockings!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Then I found the perfect accessory to complete my look. This horned crown, called ‘Bella Donna’, is from Narcisse and it’s their free gift. You can change the size and position as well as change the color of the roses and the pearls. It looks like it was just made for me!

The Halloween Shop and Hop runs until October 31st so you have plenty of time to explore it all!

A Bit of September Birdwatching

Happiness Blooms from Within

Hello Fab Readers!  I hit the hunt trail again this weekend and discovered a cheery dress that I picked up completely for free.  All I had to do was invest a small amount of time doing some “birding” (more on that below) and it was completely worth it.

Packed with Options

This vibrant frock is the first free hunt prize from GGVG in The Free Dove’s September Hunt.  It features an off-the-shoulder fit, layered sleeves, and a slightly flared skirt.  In addition, the generous designer included a texture change HUD with 20 bold selections for the floral print.  Honestly, it was hard to choose my favorite one for the photo!   There are five gifts from GGVG concealed on the Free Dove sim (I found this beauty there) and an additional 5 scattered throughout the GGVG main store location.  In order to collect the items, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but it’s completely free to join.  You’ll be searching for a small, reddish-brown, and yellow feathered friend.  The hunt runs through September 30th.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Classic – M (no alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh – M
  • Belleza Frey, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Voluptuous

Until next time, happy hunting!

A Vintage Vixen

A Vintage Vixen
Hello Fabulous Readers!  Have you checked out the Fifth Anniversary Celebration for Bundles yet?  This autumn-themed event runs through September 25th and features 31 designers, many of whom are offering gifts along with their displays.  I have to admit, despite my name, I do start longing for the crisp days of autumn as the heat of summer drags on.  What better way to anticipate fall than to wander around a sim drenched in scattered leaves and pick up free goodies along the way?

Simply Chic

One of my favorite of the free items at Bundles is this Lace Dress from Nilsy.  With its pale pink hue, semi-sheer lace, and full skirt, this frock is the picture of classic elegance.  I don’t know, maybe I am a bit of an old soul, but I love vintage style!  With elbow-length sleeves and a high neckline, it will transition beautifully as summer fades away so I will be able to wear it well into fall.  Since this gift is completely free, you can add a new outfit to your collection without making the slightest dent in your budget!

Sizes and Mesh Compatibility

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Mesh Fit in XS, S, M, L, SL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until next time,

All Things Bright and Beautiful

Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I told you about a prize I collected in the Free Dove August Hunt.  I’m back again today with a gem of a dress that I discovered completely for free on the same hunt trail.

Sparkle and Shine

Hidden somewhere on the Free Dove sim, the flirty Lacy Outfit from Emerald Couture is sure to please.  With a delicate floral overlay applied onto a solid black background, high neckline, and sheath-style cut, this little number would be perfect for a date night.  I love the added border of silver trim on the hemline!  The package includes coordinating ebony, lace-trimmed heels with delicate ankle straps, so you will be all dressed up and ready to go without having to search for matching shoes.  To scoop up this hunt prize (#3 from Emerald Couture), you will need to be a member of the Free Dove Group, but it has a very budget-friendly join fee of zero Linden dollars.  The hunt continues through August 31st, so there is plenty of time remaining for you to do some hunting of your own.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Until next time, happy hunting!

OOH LA LA

OOH LA LA

Ooh La La meaning from the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English. When you think that something or someone is surprising, unusual, or attractive. Today Jacx has 2 unusual offerings. A free outfit or shoes, you choose. And a nice perk for some Gacha items.

We’re Having A Heatwave

Could hear Marilyn singing that song, the minute I laid eyes on the Sweet Temptations Fiorella Bikini. So 1950s in ruffled goodness, with a 20 texture hud. Almost expected Bridget Bardot to come share the pool bed, where we lounge reading fashion magazines and chit chat. Here is how you get the freoutfit of your choice. Moonshine Allerhand is giving 300L store credit, (same as the price of the outfits.) Hit the subscriber board in any one of these 4 stores. Gaall, Vaxer, Sweet Temptations , Chic & Shoes. Next to the subscriber is a Free Credit Board. Then you choose what store you would like the credit at. There is a TP board handy to port between stores while you look over the goodies.

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • eBody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Yes, More Gachas!

I bet it feels like every post has something about gachas. Here is where the unusual comes in. Chez Moi is doing a gacha exchange program till August 30th. Box your no copy Chez Moi gachas, Label the box Gacha Exchange, your legacy name. Send the box to Nandas ChezMoi. And soon as possible the copy items are returned to you. It worked great, Jacx exchanged several of the items in the post. Each item was bought for 25L.

That’s a wrap for today. Till Next Time.

Let's Be Friends

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I had such good luck when we checked out the trail of the Dark and Brooding Hunt that we decided to keep searching to see what other Fabulous Finds we could unearth.  Over at The Sissy Bar, we discovered another gorgeous hunt prize for just 1 Linden Dollar.

From the Dark into the Light

This sophisticated, strapless gown will have you ready for an evening on the town.  Its slimming black fabric features a subtle floral texture and a criss cross design to emphasis your waistline.  The full length skirt section drapes to the floor where it flares slightly for ease of movement.  It is simple yet elegant and allows your beauty to take center stage.  With versions for classic as well as multiple mesh body types, there is something for everyone in this dollarbie hunt prize.  All you have to do is locate the collection of pillar candles hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a hint giver in the store on the hunt poster.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until our next post, happy hunting!

Out of the Woods

Out of the Woods

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  It might look like Ripley and I are feeling all dark and brooding, but actually we enjoyed a bright sunny day in RL.  We’re here to share a couple of Fabulous Finds with you that we think you’ll really enjoy.

I’m Feeling a Bit Sassy…

It must be this new free Black Dress that I picked up over at the Sass store.  With a plunging neckline and two peek-a-boo slits in the skirt, it certainly is a flirty little number.  I love the way this frock hugs your curves and leaves your back tantalizingly bare.  You can’t really see them from my photo, but there are 3 little buttons that gleam in the light which add visual interest to the bodice.  The black and gray striped skirt section and over all dark color scheme made me think of a spooky, mysterious vibe, so Ripley and I decided to visit an eerie forest for our photo.  Although the weather might be getting more nippy outside, fortunately in SL, I don’t need to worry about catching a chill in this saucy mini dress. To pick up a copy for your SL wardrobe, you need to be a member of the Sass group, and there is a small 10 Linden dollar join fee, but I think this dress is well worth the investment!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

These Boots

As much as I love my new dress, I *adore* the Petra Boots from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes that I am wearing!  With a high heel design, detailed lacing and silver accents, these boots are great to wear with a dressier outfit, but also flexible enough to coordinate with a more casual style.  The white stitching really pops against the black leather background.  The folder includes versions for classic avatars (with a shoe base, alpha layer and a handy resizer for the perfect fit) as well as for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass.  All I had to do to add this versatile pair of footwear to my closet was to locate the collection of pillar candles hidden in the shop (and by *I*, I meant Ripley), pay the teensy 1L price and scurry home to try them on.  The Dark and Brooding Hunt runs until September 30th and features a gothic, vampire theme, which is perfect for the upcoming Halloween holiday.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

It’s Only Us

Fenceline

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is going well.  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a darling outfit that I picked up as a free group gift.  With a floral crop top and sleek shorts, this outfit will have you ready for a weekend adventure, without putting even so much as a tiny dent in your budget.

Pretty Floral Print

Lalie from WellMade has lots of fine details such as the semi transparent generous cuffs, the ruffled edge on the hem and coordinating ties dangling down on the sides of the shorts.  While I opted for a grayish botanical print and black shorts, with the enclosed HUD, you have three other options for the top and bottom that you can switch up and combine to your heart’s content.  Since each piece is worn separately, you can mix and match with other items already in your inventory for added versatility.  Best of all, since the WellMade group has no join fee, you can add this summery number to your inventory completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Elemental Forces

Rose

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I was in the mood for a dramatic pop of color today, and I found it in the sexiest little dress that I picked up as a prize in the Elemental Desire 2 Hunt for just 25 Linden dollars.  I am super excited to share this one with you!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Vespera Dress from Ambient Fashion features a curve-hugging style that will have you looking and feeling red-hot.  I just love the cut outs in the front of this frock and the way the back plunges dramatically low.  The fabric has a subtle geometric pattern that catches the light when you move.  This little number is perfect for a Friday date night!  Best of all, the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars.  To add this racy little mini to your inventory, all you need to do is locate the hunt object – the symbols of fire, air, earth and water on a black background – hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a handy hint giver on the hunt poster on the wall.  If you’re feeling really adventurous, there is also a 1 Linden dollar prize for the same hunt in the store as well.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • eBody Curvy and Classic
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

The Elemental Desires 2 Hunt runs until August 25th, so you still have plenty of time to discover some Fabulous Finds along the trail.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

With Powdered Sugar On Top

Forget Me Not

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start!  The pupster and I have another hunt gift to share with you today, and I think you are really going to love this one!  It’s perfect for a late summer trip to the shore, and best of all, it costs just 1 little Linden dollar!

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Powdered sugar, that is!  Over at the C!L Boutique, Ripley and I discovered the Powdered Sugar Beach Bikini and Dress set as a prize in the Lazy Summer Day Hunt.  This combo features the most adorable ruffled cover up in a bright, cooling hue complete with thin shoulder straps and mesh sections to keep you comfortable even on steamy summer days.  In addition to the frock, the prize also includes a darling snow white bikini (see the picture below).  Although I didn’t wear them for my photos, a pair of cycling shorts rounds out the package.  One thing I truly appreciate about the Powdered Sugar prize is that it includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars.  If you like this outfit as much as I do, you only have a short time left to hit the hunt trail.  The Lazy Summer Day Hunt wraps up on July 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes system layers as well as an alpha layer for the dress)
    • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
    • Ebody
    • Maitreya
    • Ocacin
    • Slink Hourglass and Physique
    • TMP
    • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Enjoy the moment

Until my next post, happy hunting!
