!gO! Pick Up Day 5!

Snapshot_002
Hi there!  I am stopping by again today real quick to share news about the time sensitive !gO! Advent prize for day 5 and some sweet holiday flats I came across as a group gift at #EMPIRE  that just went so nicely with it!  There are so many wonderful gifts out there this month that I wish I could just stay here all day and show them, alas.. there is work.. and family and stuff!

Adventing at !gO! – Day 5

Today only, you can slap on your !gO! VIP tag (50L to join) and pick up the Alina Jacket & Top with the Hydrangea add on under the advent tree labelled as Day #5.  You can wear the shirt with the jacket or each piece on it’s own if you like.  There are daily prizes for guys too!!

Adding the shoes…

After I had put on my new jacket, I remembered that #EMPIRE had recently released their group gift for December and they matched perfectly with one of the colours in the texture change HUD.  When you are a VIP at #EMPIRE (499L to join), you can pick up tons of group gifts including the Poinsettia Flats I am wearing today, and also take advantage of their group lucky boards.

Have a great day!

Adventing We Will !gO!

Snapshot_006
Hey Fabulouses! I am stopping by super fast tonight with a quick snapshot and a flash of news to let you know about a cute advent prize I picked up today at !gO!. As this is an advent gift, it is only available today (12/3/16).

Day 3 Advent @ !gO!:

Today only, you can slap on your !gO! VIP tag (50L to join) and pick up the Valentine Collared Coat for free under the tree.  You just have to dig your way through the numbered tags to find #3!  I actually picked these pants up yesterday – as the day 2 advent prize at !gO! and thought I would never need a pair of green and white striped pants, but when I saw this jacket – it all came together and I love the way it looks.

Enjoy your evening and happy adventing!

I Need A Lift!

Snapshot_002
Hey Fabulouses, I need a lift!  My car broke down in what appears to be a zombie infected area.  At least I am stranded in style, thanks to Siss Boom who put out this hot Velour Top as a new addition to their huge group gift wall.  This group does have a group fee of 500L, but you won’t be disappointed in the current group gift offerings and you’ll be able to pick up new gifts as they come along too.  You’ll find plenty of fab gifts to make up the fee in no time.

About my hot Velour Top…

The Siss Boom Velour Top in black fits like a glove to my mesh Maitreya body, but does come with an alpha layer if you need it for the system body.  I think it makes a great clubbing top, or even as a top for cool apocalyptic look.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Fitmesh XXS-L
  • Mesh XXS-L

She Is An Amiable Woman

Snapshot_004
Sheesh! That thing called “real life” has kept me so busy over the last week that I feel like I haven’t been able to put the time I like into publishing blog posts here on FabFree.  I am very thankful that we have such an inspired and dedicated blog team to keep things hopping for our wonderful readers.  I am hoping however, that this week will be a little easier on me so I can catch up… because there is TONS out there that I’d like to show you!

What’s free today?

Today I am showing off two items at Amiable, where you will find a wall full of free group gifts!

  1.  Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top: This cozy black sweater textured with sparkly gold flecks is available as a free group gift to the inworld group members of the Third Life group which is 5L to join.  This top comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes the co-ordinating alpha layer for those that require it.  There is an option to wear the sweater with or without a collar.  I am wearing it, but it’s a little tough to see under the snuggly warm muffler I am wearing which is also free…
  2.  Knit Muffler Welcome Gift:  The Knit Muffler Welcome Gift as shown on my avatar comes in a pack of three colours.  These are editable so that you can shift them around under hair and over sweaters etc.  You can pick this up as a free group gift on the group gift wall behind the desk after you join their free group!

If you are a long time reader of FabFree, you might remember Calleja Fairey posting a few things here and there from Amiable, and they may still be available on the group gift wall too.

Etched in Style

Laced in Style
Hello Fabulouses! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  In real life, I try to stay *far* away from malls and shopping on Black Friday, and the next couple of days afterwards.  It seems like whenever I think I’ve found a parking spot, it turns out to be a small car!  In SL, it’s a different story – no worries about parking here!  With a day off from work, Ripley and I traveled around, scoping out another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.

Gone Camping

Over at Etchaflesh, I had no trouble finding a parking spot.  In fact, I brought my trusty Kindle, along with the pupster’s favorite bone, and we settled into one of eight cozy camping chairs placed on the back wall of the store.  After just 30 minutes of “parking,” I happily welcomed this sassy, sleeveless parka to the fold for free.  It features a crop top, and a long vest that is accented with several jazzy buttons, stars, and stripes.  A color-change HUD allows you to alter the texture of the vest (outer and inner lining), crop top, and the decorative buttons, stars, and stripes individually, so you can create a variety of looks.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Physique, and Venus
  • Standard-sized mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD

I’ve Got My Sassy Pants on Today

The trendy style of my parka called for slacks with attitude, and I located the perfect trousers – Pencil Pants for Maitreya by Beck.  These black, laced, leather pants provided just the look I was striving for.  I love the detail of the tied lacing.  Created exclusively for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, Mie Beck offers them for sale in her Marketplace shop for only 50L.  Mie states on her profile that her goal is to make a place where all people can afford to wear 100% mesh outfits.  These pants are not only budget-friendly, but stylish to boot!

From Head to Toe

The one Black Friday sale that Rip and I dared to venture to was at Truth Hair (Love told us about this super-saver event in her post [HERE]).  I scooped up the versatile Fenella hair for only 75L.  Able to be worn with and without the fedora, this chic ‘do features long, flowing locks, and a color-change HUD for the hat.  We had a hard time wading our way through the crowd in the lobby of the Truth store, but our persistence really paid off in the end.  I was able to scoop up several hairstyles at bargain prices.  Score for team Ripley!

After slipping on Lewis studded, flat sneakers from the Mesh Agency, Rip and I dusted off the bike, and pedaled over to the Gates of Melancholy sim where we worked off some of those Thanksgiving dinner calories by exploring along the beach.

I hope you enjoyed the fun, casual Fabulous Find we put together for you today.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping camping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Tell Me About It, Stud

Tell Me About ItHello There Fab Free’rs, I hope it’s obvious that Pru is channeling a little Olivia Newton -John circa the 1978 version of Grease. As I was trying things on and putting this look together my mind went right to Sandy’s post makeover look. I can just hear Sandy saying “Tell me about it, Stud.” while Danny Zuko struggled to handle her sexy new look! Needless to say, I had some fun with this one, and I hope you like it.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering, where’d I get most of this stuff!? Thanks to one of the photos in our Fabulously Free in SL Flickr group, I found out about an event called Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow. To be perfectly honest I don’t know much about the event other than there were a lot of colorful items and most of the vendors had at least one gift out, some had several. Each gift ranged in cost from FREE to as much as 10 lindens, most gifts I saw were set at 5 lindens. Leave it to me to find the least colorful gifts to show, what can I say I’m a sucker for black! I also picked up a recent gift by LIVIA from the Marketplace because I needed to have some gorgeous red lips to finish the look.
Better Shape UpStarting with the top rather than from the top, this black and gold bodysuit is one of many gifts at the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event. The gift is from a shop called Alpha Female. It includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and classic system layers for non mesh avatars. I am not always a big fan of applier clothing, however this bodysuit is really well done. I think the textures are beautiful. This gift is just 5 lindens, no group needed.

Next up, this boho bangle is from a shop called Shake, and you’ll find it at the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event as well. This gift is a FREE one with no need for a group. The bracelet is able to be resized via touch menu. I love the detail in this piece of jewelry, if you look close, it has what looks to me like a cat face in the center of the design. I’m not sure if that was intentional or a happy accident, either way it makes me like it even more.

The last of the gifts from the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event that I intend to show are these super sexy high-waist skinny pants from Hi-lo. They are also just 5 lindens. I love these pants. They are one of those staple wardrobe items, everyone should own a pair. The style is timeless, and they are great with a wide variety of tops from sweaters to crops. This 5 linden gift comes in fitmesh sizes, and a body specific size for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies.

Finally, because this look just wouldn’t be complete without some sultry red lipstick, LIVIA recently put out a set of gorgeous glittery lipsticks on the Marketplace. The Fall Shimmer set includes 5 shades of sparkly lipstick that range in color from gold to red. They are perfect fall shades. For just 5 lindens you get this set in classic system layers, a Catwa applier, a Fiore applier, a Lelutka applier, and an Omega applier. This is a generous gift well worth the 5 lindens, however you can also get this gift for FREE! If you’re not lazy like I am, you can head over to the LIVIA in-world location and pick up this gift for FREE with your LIVIA group tag. The LIVIA group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Snapshot_003

Hi there Fabulous Readers! I just don’t even believe it… I have barely gotten over the excitement about the first TRUTH Hair group gift that came out a couple weeks back (First shown [HERE] by Kathryn and is still available for pick up instore), and now in celebration of 4500 group members, Truth Hawks has sent out another fatpack of hair in the notices!  This group is 265L to join, but currently you can pick up both gifts in full fatpacks… so that’s a killer deal in my opinion!

Sugar is her name…

Sugar is her name, and a loose top bun updo with a variety of bang and whispy attachments is her game!  The versatility of these short/long whisps will be especially handy in this sweater/jacket/scart season so that you can find the right pieces that don’t interfere with your outfit!

Where to find it:

According to the Truth Customer Service Rep, Padma Scorpio… “Gifts will expire in notices after 14 days and then will be available in the main store for a total duration of 1 month after which they will no longer be available.” (this message was found in group notices as well)

Side note about the pose used:

I have used Raindale ‘s Tree Swing Spring Gift Pose that you can pick up for 1L at the Raindale shop!  No need to join a group – just go grab it for a linden😉.  It comes with a few different natural swing sitting poses, adjustment and swing option.

Matchy Matchy With Loki

Snapshot_001Hey there everyone🙂.   After seeing Loki looking so handsome in the new group gift for guys at Gizza [HERE], I ran right over to pick up the ladies group gift that is available for November.  I was pleasantly gifted with this beautiful plaid skirt and matching mauve sweater that has me excited about the shades of winter.  Of course this excitement over winter colours won’t last long… just until I have to shovel the snow-packed sidewalk and I’ll be dreaming of summer again.

Details about the November group gift at Gizza…

The gorgeous mauve sweater hugs every curve, being an applier compatible with:

  • Maitreya Mesh Body
  • Belleza Mesh Body
  • Slink Mesh Body

There is also a system layer included for those on the system body.  The ribbon at the chest and arm fur are add-ons.

The mesh plaid skirt comes in the following sizes:

  • Mesh XXS – L + alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

More about the Gizza inworld group:

The Gizza inworld group is free to join, and when you do you gain access to a whole years worth of free group gifts for both men and women.  Most of the time they match too – so if you are in a relationship with a guy who lets you dress up all cute and matchy – here’s your chance to do it for free!  This is also an excellent place to send new residents to help them build up their clothing inventory.
