Back to Your Roots

Back to Your Roots

Back before I blogged for Fab Free, I was sure I had a very distinct and settled style.  I loved dark, gothy things and I had a special place in my heart for pastel goth.  I mean, I still do!  But when you become a blogger, you have a tendency to forget your personal style for the greater good and in order to “sell the garment, sweetie!”.  But now and then I come across a cute item to blog that brings me back to my fashion roots faster than you can say “dark and brooding”!

Feeling Lucky

There are new lucky boards at Oubliette!  There are four different items up on the boards right now, and right now I’m showing off two.  The peekaboo (very peekaboo…) lace skull dress is so appealing that I knew I had to wear it.  Of course, I added some pasties for modesty – but it is quiiiite see-through.  I also grabbed the underwear there too, which feature a very nice touch of lacing up the sides.  The two items go very nicely together, I think, but they can also be worn separately.  To gain access to these cute and creepy items, just join the Petite Mort & Oubliette group for free, then wait for your letter to come up!  While you’re at it, you could check the lucky boards across the sim at Petite Mort which are new too.

Sizes

  • Freya

Movie Night

Movie Night

This pic gives me vibes of going to see a movie.  You know, the moment between buying tickets and walking into the darkened theatre with your chosen snacks… though I’m not sure how many movie theatres give you flowery ice cream nowadays.  The thing is, I do miss the whole “going to the movies” experience that seems to have been taken away from us over the last few months. I don’t think I’ll take it for granted ever again…

Top Up

There’s a new group gift at Osmia in order to celebrate their anniversary!  You can get this pretty and versatile cropped blouse (which comes in 12 different colours) by joining the Osmia group for free.  You’ll also find a bunch of other gifts while you’re there too, as well as a 50% off sale to celebrate.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

Bag It!

My cross body bag is the latest group gift from Magnoliac, and it pairs very well with the top, I think.  You can size it quite easily by clicking on it, and it comes with an HUD to change it’s colour to match your outfit.  The Magnoliac group is 75L to join and there are a few other gifts to pick up while you’re there.

Do you miss going to the movies?

Feigning to Surf

Feigning to Surf

Hello hello hello my lovelies!  Time to hit the beach for a bit of sun and surf.  By surf, I obviously mean looking fabulous while standing next to surfboards because hand eye coordination isn’t really my strong suit.  Wait, do you need hand-eye coordination for surfing? Or is that balance?  Whatever it is, I don’t have it!  That’s ok though, I still look fab!

Surfing USA

To the beach I went, in my newest rainbow swimwear from Sass!  The monthly group gift has made it’s appearance and I love the bright hues.  To get this bathing suit, just join the Sass group for 10L, then pay the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  There are monthly group gifts to be had, and they’re all super cute!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Reign O’er Me

Reign also have a new group gift, which is this little flowered choker.  I like all the details on this gift, from the see-through plastic all the way down to the colour changeable roses.  To join the Reign group, it will cost you 250L but there is  room full of gifts, and many of them are really high quality shoes.  Take a peek!

Surf’s up!

Simple Delights

Simple Delights

Ahhhh, ice cream.  There is a great pleasure in this simple delight which comes in every flavour you can imagine.  Once on vacation, I found a place that even sold onion flavoured gelato.  Needless to say, I didn’t buy it, but instead went for my fave flavour which has always been lemon.  Though I would make a case for this watermelon ice cream I’ve got going on….

Ice Cream Café

The Ice Cream Café hunt is taking place right now and it’s filled to the brim with cute and colourful designs to make you glad summer is upon us (or if you’re in a part of the world where it’s winter…it will have you dreaming of warmer days!).  This hunt has paid and free items dispersed around the sim, and I settled on this gorgeous dress from Antaya which only set me back 25L.  With a bit more searching, I also found this free ice cream cone from ChicChica which (as with all ChicChica items) comes with a super cute bento hold – pinkies out, I say!  Ice Cream Café is running until June 30th, so you’ve got a bit of time to check out all the hunt items, gachas and gifts!

Think Pink

Think Pink

I think one of the constants in my life has certainly been the colour pink.  It has made it’s way through all the important places – from beadspreads and pink walls when I was young, to pink journals and pens in my teens, down to extremely cute dresses today!  This dress has everything I ever wanted all in one place!

Grumble About It

The Kink in Pink Hunt is in full swing right now, and Grumble are taking part, along with a whole bunch of other stores.  Now I must warn you, the Kink in Pink Hunt is quite adult, and you’ll find lots of adult offerings on the “A Town Called Short Leash” sim.  I hunted high and low for the little hearts in the sim, and found this one from Grumble that contains a quite sexy dress.  I was so excited about the shininess and the fact that there are 15 different textures to choose from in the HUD ranging from this one (that makes me think of sticker collections) to unicorns, bows and a few different plain pink hues.  To grab it, just hunt for the heart and then buy for 25L.  There are lots of things to hunt for on the Kink in Pink Hunt, so make sure you check out their website for all the hunt keys (keeping in mind some of them are *quite* adult).

Shake, Shake, Milkshake

Shake, Shake, Milkshake

Time for a sweet treat after all this hard work of sim hopping and freebie gathering, I think.  I love a good milkshake as a well-deserved treat.  After all the freebie finding you’re about to do (and I’m sure some grueling unboxing that will follow), you deserve one too!

Mellow Yellow

The Gacha Garden is back, and it’s bursting at the seams with great gachas, awesome pull prizes and of course oodles of freebies.  To get into all the boxes of fun, all you have to do is join the Gimme Gacha group for free, then click on the boxes.  It seemed to me like the event was even bigger this time, so enjoy!  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE Top by MeHoney sized for Maitreya
  • FREE Eyeshadow and Face shine by This is Wrong with appliers for Catwa and Omega
  • FREE Milkshake by Kawaii Couture with three different cup colours

There’s wayyy more to be had at The Gacha Garden, so go grab it all!

Time for a bit of glamour and drama, I think!  Let’s all put on some sexy clothes and sashay around SL to kick the blues to the curb!

Luas has a new group gift that will have you ready to head out dancing, and all you need to do in order to grab it is to join the Luas group for 50L.  There are a whole bunch of other gifts to pick up while you’re there too.  This dress comes in 8 different colours so you can totally change up your look.

Ooh, Crunchy!

Candy Crunchers have figured out how to get my attention by putting out this cute little clutch with a cat on it!  I love pretty much anything with a cat on it, so to get it all I had to do was join the free SLFO group.  It features a cute bento hold too, which I always love!

Bring the drama, Fab Free!

Part of Something Bigger

Part of Something Bigger I’ve been a part of Fab Free for what feels like a long time now.  First, as a reader, then as a blogger and recently as the blog organizer.  I can tell you that a lot of work goes into this little labour of love.   I’m not complaining one bit, because it is a wonderful pastime indeed.   We get so much supportive feedback from our readers, in the form of comments, IMs, notecards or even nice messages posted in the inworld chat.  Some days, you really need that little boost from the community, and I’m happy to say that it happens fairly often.

We Found The Cure

I spoke to the owner of Cureless, Kaorinette, last night.  Cureless recently joined the Fab Free designer program, and Kaorinette told me that she was happy to have made a gift (which I’m showing off today) for the blog community which helped her out when she was a newbie in SL.  What an awesome thing!  It makes me so happy to be a part of SL’s network of support.  You never know, the readers in our group today might be the designers of tomorrow!

You can get this gorgeous gown over at the Cureless mainstore by wearing your Fab Free group tag, which is always free to join.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Hourglass Petite

Keep supporting each other, Fab Free!  And while you’re at it, check out our group gift listing and support all our Fabulous Designers.  ♥

Sweet as Pie

Sweet as Pie

I have a tendency to vacillate quite violently between wanting to look exceedingly sexy and then wanting to look sweet with a hint of innocence.  I like the ability to choose who I’m going to be on any given day just by changing up my look.  After all, we’re all too complex to ever just fit into one box, don’t you think?   I’m clearly tiptoeing towards the innocent look today, and I’m ok with that!

Makeover Who?

The Makeover Room is in full swing right now, and as is their wont, there is a free gift for members of their free to join group.  You’ll find it right by the landing point on a little table to your left.  The Spirit Indestructible dress is by Entice and is just so sweet with the unicorn print that I couldn’t pass it up.  A tip of the hat to Fab Free Reader (and future chat moderator!) Zara who pointed me in the direction of this gift!

  • Freya

  • Isis

  • Physique
  • Venus
  • XXS – L with an Alpha Layer

Sweet and Spicy like Wasabi

Over at Wasabi (purveyors of excellent hair) you’ll find a gift put out for members of the SLFO group.  SLFO is free to join, making this cute braided look completely free.  Don’t you love the sweet pink dipped ends?  Not sure how long this cute look will be out, so head over there ASAP!

Who are you going to be today?
