Sweeter as the days go by

Sweeter as the days go by

Well, hey there FabFree! Long time no see!  I am finally settling into the new place here in New York. Road tripping all the way from Texas was quite the adventure with all my kitties in tow. But we all did great and it really was smooth sailing. But wooowee, it’s cold up here compared to Texas! It’s time to break out the boots and snuggly sweaters in real life!

Ahlure is breaking out the sweater for us in this months free Group Gift too. This is the ‘Snuggles’ dress.  Now, the interesting thing about this dress is that you get two patterns on the HUD; this leather patch one I’m showing and a stripes all over one. Then you get a color picker so you can tint your own colors to your hearts content.  I know I have a couple of shoes/boots and socks combos I will be using since I can make the dress match perfectly!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

A nifty new dress needs some nifty new boots, right? Of course! I picked up these “Steampunk” boots by La Perla for just 1L over at the Orsy Event . Like anything ‘steam’ and/or ‘boots’, these are going to get a lot of wear from me!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

The group is free to join, and I’ll put a link below that you can copy and paste into in-world local chat to join the group.

Giuliadesign

The vest style top I am wearing is part of the free Jail event gift by Giuliadesign. I like this piece a lot because I think it looks sexy, but makes me feel like I am being sexy on my terms, for myself. That is an empowering feeling. This top comes in a dark purple color with a white collar as shown. There’s also a matching mini skirt and shoes in the gift, which I chose not to wear.EUSOPIA

  • Shirt Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Hanz

The tattoo I am wearing is by Hanz. It’s also free at The Jail, just don’t forget that group tag. I’m happy to say that this tattoo is unisex. It comes tattoo comes in appliers and BOM layers so anyone should be able to wear it, classic or mesh.

Appliers/Layers Included: BOM Layers (Faded, Fresh), Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, Omega Applier, Maitreya Applier

Madame Noir

Lastly, the choker I have on is a free Jail event gift by Madame Noir. It’s called the Elektra necklace and it has a cool metal clasp in the front. It also has resize scripts, and a color change hud. The hud has several solid color choices for the leather/fabric and different metallic options for the metal bits.

Looking Cool When it’s Cool

Looking Cool When it's Cool

There’s something so pleasant about a massive sweater.  It’s like you can cocoon yourself against bad weather and the other evils of the world.  It’s even better when the massive sweater has cute designs on it, so that you can colour the world while also protecting yourself from ickiness.  Here’s to massive sweaters!

But Where?

When I saw this outfit at The Free Dove, I knew it had to be mine!  It’s the latest addition to the collection of freebies at The Free Dove from Hilly Haalan.  The massive cozy sweater and shirt have four different texture options in the HUD, and you’ll also find the purse and shoes/socks in the box too!  To get this cute look, all you have to do is join the free group and click on the box.  There’s always something new and cool to find at The Free Dove – and you can check out all their latest additions on their blog HERE.

Into the Weekend

Into the Weekend

Hey FabFree! Happy Halloween Eve! I’m going to make this quick because we don’t have much time. I know tonight is all about Halloween parties and dancing and having fun. And I highly encourage it! But tomorrow and Sunday are the last days of a lot of hunts. And you don’t want to miss out, right?

Another one of my favorite designers has a ton of those hunts going on right now and that’s The Sissy Bar. You could do all your Halloween hunting right here! I picked this prize for the Monster Mash Hunt because it’s a great fall outfit so it can go well past Halloween in your closet. This is the “Monster Mash Sweater and Leggings” and you can pick it up for just 1L.  The colors and details are so nicely done, I think I’ll be wearing this one a lot. But… there’s always a but… The Monster Mash Hunt ends on the 31rst so hurry hurry!

Falling Leaves

Falling Leaves

Falling leaves everywhere!  On the ground, crunching underfoot, and floating placidly through the air.  I love it!  The only problem with it is that since they’re all falling, one day they’ll all have fallen off and they shan’t fall again until next year!  Let’s enjoy it while it lasts!

So Spookay!

Masoom is hosting a really fun hunt on their sim right now, featuring loads of free prizes!  You have to search for the little hidden cupcakes all around the haunted house and grounds and every single one is completely free!  I picked up four little prizes from Tetra, and they all go together fabulously!  I got the boots (which come sized for Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink), bodysuit (a top is also included if that’s more your thing), necklaces and pants.  How awesome is that?  To get to the hunt area, just click on the teleport pad to the hunt area!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

The Spookay Hunt is running until October 31st!

Ain’t It The Truth

Yay!  It’s time for a new VIP Hairstyle from Truth!  Forever is a high and long ponytail with a set of removable bangs.  It’s a full fatpack of colours and also comes with a stylist HUD to fling that pretty ponytail over your shoulder.  The Truth group is currently 350L to join and you’ll find this hairstyle in group notices.  Love it!

Enjoy the leaves, FabFree!

Fantasy Retreat

Fantasy Retreat

I really do still love 25L Tuesday. The deals and bargains can’t be beat. Plus, some of my absolute favorite designers often have something for the Tuesday round up.  One thing I kinda miss, however is the theme. 25L Tuesday used to be all role play items and clothes… I liked that.  But… all things change and move on.  So you can image how tickled I was to find Kegel Clothing offering this awesome fantasy ‘olden days’ dress – Louisa.

Louisa is such a great find for us RPers. The build is so pretty and the details are spot on. I am so happy with this designer and the dress itself.  Kegel Clothing is all over fantasy and RP items and outfits. There’s even a great selectin for our guys! Y’all gotta check it out. Now, Louisa does also come in a beautiful claret red and a black version each for the regular price of 250L. Only the blue version is on sale. But you can see… wow, whata sale!

Sizes Included

  • One mesh size for Maitreya and Legacy

Enhancing my fantasy mood, is this rustic little shed with its benches and a pile of cozy blankets. Someone even left some mugs of hot cider for us! The “Winter Retreat Shed” from Roawenwood is also on the 25L Tuesday list today and I really love it. Like everything from Roawenwood, the retreat is perfectly built and a stunning addition to my little forest. 

Some stores leave their 25L treasures up until next Tuesday… some disappear at the stroke of midnight. So be sure to get moving on this one, Fab Folks!

A Light When All Other Lights Go Out

A Light When All Other Lights Go Out

Then, as he stood, darkness about him and a blackness of despair and anger in his heart, it seemed to him that he saw a light:
a light in his mind, almost unbearably bright at first, as a sun-ray to the eyes of one long hidden in a windowless pit.
Then the light became colour: green, gold, silver, white.  Far off, as in a little picture drawn by elven-fingers, he saw the Lady Galadriel standing on the grass in Lórien, and gifts were in her hands.

– J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

A Bit of Magic

Sometimes when the night seems dark, we will all find a bit of light when we expect it least.   Today my little slice of light comes courtesy of MGCK SPDR.  I know that group gifts and fashion in SL sometimes seem a frivolous thing, but they do bring us a bit of pleasure when we need it!  This lovely candy corn inspired gown is one of several group gifts that you can pick up at their mainstore (including a matching set of pumps) by joining their group for 25L.  How lovely!

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Hourglass

Enjoy!

Dancing With Myself

Dancing With Myself

I feel like dancing today.  I don’t really need anyone else around to accomplish my mission, I’m just going to dance by myself for my own pleasure.  Sometimes that’s the best therapy, I think.  Loud music, lots of space to move, and little old moi!

Lybra Season

The other day, LYBRA joined the FabFree Designer 2.0 program and gave us all some amazing goodies which Pru showed you HERE.  I had to have the blouse as well, and while I was there I dug around in all the other awesome gifts that LYBRA has on offer.  This gorgeous dress is free for members of the Mesh Body Friends group, which is free to join.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, and I love the shiny effect!  Head on over there and pick it up!

  • Freya

Now close your eyes, I have to keep dancing!
