Flashback 1970

Hi, it’s going to be a longer post than usual, so grab your favorite beverage. Settle in for a trip down memory lane.

Blast From The Past

Today 14 year old Jacx, is channeling myself at about the same age. Back to the days of Levi hip hugger big bell jeans (that we split the seam to add brightly colored material to make the bells even bigger.) With skimpy, barely legal tanks and halter tops. Speaking of tops, Shydoll Annie Top, which is a group gift, fits the bill in the barely legal department. Cropped, see-through, comes with a 14 solid color, 6 dot color hud, to match almost any outfit. Making the top a welcome addition to your SL closet. Shydoll is 199L to join.  If you’re like me and do not want to show the world your “bits.”  iPeench! Tintable Lace Modesty BOM Cover Set on the marketplace for 199L, will protect what you choose to keep private.

Wholesome As Apple Pie

As you might have guessed, I love to decorate my SL home. There are several creators that are my “go to.” What Next is one of those creators. Classic and well constructed. With the added perk of FLF offerings. Jacx picked up 2 from this round of FLF. What Next Counter Top Pie Safe and Wall Decor, plus What Next Apple Pies both 50L each. Brings a homey warmth to my kitchen decor. Some creators leave the FLF price beyond the set time. As of this posting the items were still at sale price. But, please check before you purchase, to make sure.

Humm… Wonder if Arielle can get Sir Paul (here) to come sing “Birthday” at this party? 😛

Fabfree & Me

Happy Birthday to FabFree and Happy Rez Day to me. FabFree and I have grown up together since September 6, 2007. It sure has been an exciting and sometimes bumpy ride to get here 14 years later. About a week or so after Jacx was born, listening to music and dancing at my favorite club. I was talking about the struggle to find affordable clothing. When one of my new friends (a guy (LOL) Said to me ” I have this link for a blog where they show free clothes you can get.” This was my introduction to FabFree. From Farrah and Renee, to the lovely ladies of today, they have kept me and my ever expanding, out of control inventory (101,893 and rising) current with gifts, groups to join, awesome pictures to look at. What more could a girl who loves fashion ask for..
So for the last 14 years every morning while drinking coffee and before I log in to SL, I open FabFree to see where I will be shopping that day. LOL. Sure has been a ton of fun. And I thank FabFree and all the ladies past and present, for helping me be one of the best dressed ladies on the grid. 🙂 For todays festivities, Jacx stopped by Entice for the  Springsteen Dress, (free, No group needed). This sweet strapless mini, comes with 3 different party prints.  Pop over to Entice on your rez day and pick up your free gift. Though you can not see ’em, the lovely big hud Jades Wedges, completed the party going fashion.

Hey gang!  For today’s finds, I am taking you inside my humble abode, and also to our new Fab Free Headquarters!  So travel around the grid with me if you will!  We Fab Free sisters live and breathe freebies and deals so that means we use them in our little corners of the grid, just like y’all do!  We try to set a good example by *trying* to live frugally! (not always easy!  hee hee)

So, let’s get started, as I have a lot to show you.  Above is my kitchen table area, I did this with a kitchen set from Careless (I didn’t even put everything out!) that cost me only 49L.  It’s super cute and I added a couple of odds and ends from them too.  The poses are great too, really well made stuff!

Below is my living room.  My couch and chair are a set, also from Careless, but they are a group gift meaning they are free cause the group is free to join as well!  If this color isn’t your thing, you guessed it, she has other colors for 49L!  The cute Tulips on my mantle?  10L at Careless.  The little trees with lights are from Caro Designe on market and you can get them for 50L.

decor_009

Below you can see I used the little trees from Caro in more than one place, they are just sooo pretty!  The pink Paris themed dresser with fairy lights?  That’s one of my creations and you can grab that at Shanti for only 50L!

decor_003

Here is another market find that I absolutely love, these little lantern lights from What Next.  You can grab these on their marketplace store for only 10L!  They are stunning, let me tell you!  You can of course put them anyplace you like, I strung them along my fence by the pool.

Lastly, I don’t know how many of you have had a chance to pop by and check out the new headquarters yet, but in keeping with the fab free spirit, the house we used is of course free.  It’s a free group gift from Greymoon Designs (who has adorable houses!  I live in one (and own several!  lol!), and the group is only 50L to join.  When you join, you can grab a bunch of cute houses on the group gifts wall and here is the one we used (C-Side Cottage):

The New Fab Free Headquarters!

A quick peek at the inside (but go see it in person eh?):

The New Fab Free Headquarters!

(btw the umbrella shaped lamp is from LISP Bazaar and is only 50L on market!)

The landscaping I used is mostly from Lunaria and the trees with sparkles in them are both free group gifts from Lunaria and that group is free to join.  I love her stuff!

PS Don’t let Aline fool you, she did half of the amazing decorating too!  It was an awesome team effort!

Well there you have it gang, another Caroline style post from me chock full of fab free style goodness!

Vintage Me!

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

I’m all about the vintage/retro stuff.  Those of us old enough (cough!) to remember those days know they had a feel.  The 70’s had a feel, the 80’s had a feel.  Somehow once the 90’s started, the era’s started blending together (for me at least), they didn’t have *such* a distinction as the earlier decades (I’m barely old enough to remember the 60’s, but I know that and the 50’s, 40’s, etc also had a feel of their own).

So in my pic, I’ve got a bit of the sixties *and* seventies (can you distinguish?), thanks to the Vintage Fair!  Which is a lot of fun by the way.

The Awesome Shirt

This is screaming 77-79 to me.  Back in the day I had these sorts of shirts with band names on them (The Police for one.)  This is made by The Annex at The Vintage Fair, there are several different designs for you to choose from and they will set you back only 50L.    It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

The Decor

The Stay Wild Moon Child Poster by InkMe is from a gacha that is only 50L at The Vintage Fair.  Not sure the era on that one but as you saw in my previous post, I love all things celestial, so …. gimme!

Woodstock poster behind me, sixties, natch.  1969 to be exact.  You can get that on market from What Next for only 50L

I’m not showcasing the other things but just to give you a rundown of the era….

Pants – very seventies, obv.

The chair to my left (was a gift from Aline!  Thank you!!!!) is very sixties and my favorite color, pink!

Lastly the floppy hat (I bet you aren’t surprised to hear I have one just like this in rl!) is very late sixties, early seventies.
