One wrong turn…there’s no fiesta in Kowloon!

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your week has been going by as easily as mine has been. I have to admit, I couldn’t wait for today, as I really, really wanted to share my gorgeous outfit with you. Don’t you just love when you put together a look and everything works so well together that you just want to IM all your friends and go out and party so you can show off? I wanted to find a nice Mexican fiesta, but took a wrong turn and ended up in the neon lit streets of Kowloon. Not really a party place, but it made for a nice backdrop for my pics. I guess I better just get to it and show you what I put together eh?

It all started with my dress. A friend of mine reminded me of the store AZUL, and how generous they are with putting out a new free group gift every month while leaving some of the older gifts out. I grabbed all of the most recent, fully intending to show you this months offer, until I put on May’s gift. The super sexy, black and white, mesh dress is a show stopper. With its ultra low back, longer-in the back skirt hem, and cute ruffle around the bum, without revealing too much skin, it is a perfect party dress. It comes in all the usual mesh sizes, so everyone should be happy. The AZUL group is free to join, and as I mentioned already, there are several of the past group gifts still out for you to pick up. I have to include a back shot, you understand, right?

The next logical step in putting my look together…the shoes! Lucky for me, I found the perfect pair while looking around at this weeks round of fi*Friday. First, I want to say how much I love that each fi*Friday round lasts for the whole week, so that even though I post on Thursdays, I can show you something from the current round and it will still be there until tomorrow! OK, onto the shoes. When you buy the Raisa Pumps from Wayne, for SLink high feet, you actually get 4 separate pairs. 2 versions with ankle straps and 2 versions without. What’s even better, they come with 2 colour change huds, one that has gold for the metal accents, and the other is silver. These huds have 20 different colours to choose from. So….if you do the math (and I hope I’ve done it correctly) that is a total of 160 pairs of shoes. Yup…160!! Oh, and they are materials enabled to boot! That gorgeous sheen on all of my pictures is not just a baked texture. All of that, for only L$55…how could I say no. You have until midnight tonight, and then this round of fi*Friday switches over to the new round, so do not wait too long to go grab these.

Lastly, as I had mentioned that my outfit was making me feel like finding a fiesta…I needed a tropical touch, and it needed to be red to play off of the red I chose for my shoes. Deciding that what I needed was a flower for my hair, I hopped onto the Marketplace to search. I came across the Springtime Hair Flower from AviCandy, that included a 9 different colours of flower, for only L$49. I went with the brights pack to get the red I wanted, but there are 2 other colour variation packs available, so you are sure to find one to match whatever you may be wearing. With as detailed and realistic as these flowers are…you may just want to put together a whole outfit with them as the starter!

Well…I never did find my party, but that’s ok, as I looked fabulous anyways. I’ll just tune into a salsa music station and make my own party 🙂 Alright lovelies, that is it for me. I will see you all again, same time next week. Until then…TTFN *salsa’s out of the building*

Rum Runner

Rum Runner

Well my ship sank, but at least I managed to save the rum!

This post is really about the clothing, but I decided to have a little fun considering the pirate themed items in my outfit. There is just a little bit of time left for this round of The Candy Factory, and they are having a swashbucklin’ good time with lots of pirate themed goodness! I picked up this really cute long tank top from KRC, this one was my favorite out of the three pack. All three shirts in the pack have a pirate themed graphic, get all three for just $100 lindens. Also from KRC at The Candy Factory is this cute Jolly Roger hair-bow. The bow is completely FREE, so don’t miss out! If you haven’t had your fill of gachas lately, which I don’t think is possible, Plastik has a shoe gacha at The Candy Factory with pirate themed heels that are beautifully done and well worth the $50 lindens per play. To go with all this pirate loveliness I also picked up some glittery eye-makeup by Wicked Peach at The Countdown Room. I love makeup, as I’m sure you all know by now, and this is just too fun. You get a fatpack of color options and there are 2 styles to choose from at $50 lindens per style. I hope you like my little “rum runner” look!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Gothic Bunny Does Cabaret

Broken Bunny

I’m just going to go ahead and dub this look “Gothic Bunny Cabaret”! Can you tell I’m feeling a bit sinister!? It’s the middle of the week and thank goodness, we are that much closer to the weekend. There are tons of fun events going on in Second Life right now, it would be nearly impossible to keep up with all of them. Either way, I’ve had a blast visiting a few of them. The Candy Factory is still going, though this round is ending soon. I picked up the black-lace sparkly top by Toxic High at the Candy Factory, gatcha style for just $25 lindens. The top is fun and a little bit racy, and I like that it comes with appliers for Lolas Tango. To go with my fun new top, I scouted around several events, and picked up the runny eye-makeup by Wicked Peach at the current round of The Countdown Room. They are just $50 lindens and I think they are dark but playful. I hope you like this sinister cabaret look as much as I do!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Until We Meet Again…

This has been an extremely difficult post for me to write. In fact, it has taken me all week to finish it! The reason is because this will be my last post for FabFree… at least for a while. Some RL opportunities presented themselves to me a couple months ago, and I decided that the time was right for me to pursue them. Unfortunately, this means I will no longer be able to keep up with the busy FabFree blogging schedule. 😦 But who knows… I may turn up in a guest post once in a while. And I may be back if/when RL settles down. What I know for certain is that I will really miss this fabulous group of bloggers, and I will truly miss all of you wonderful readers.

Blogging soon!

Ok, enough mush. I wanted to leave you with a special post, so here goes! 🙂 My pretty, green dress is the latest subscriber gift from DaneMarkZ. I really like the texture and the summery “feel” to it. And this gorgeous ponytail hair is the latest group gift from LeLutka. You get a huge fatpack of colors, so you’re sure to find one you like!

Blogging soon!

This creamy skin is Glam Affair’s Livy in the Arctic 05 flavor. You can try your luck to win her for 100L at The Arcade Gacha. My pretty jewelry is a group gift from Baby Monkey, and includes the earrings, necklace, and ring, as well as a HUD with 9 different textures. The applier for my nails is a subscriber gift from {Wicked} Peach, and it includes 6 textures for fingers and toes.

N-Core Design recently put out these gorgeous shoes as a group gift. The heel is texture-change, and of course, you can change your pedicure. N-Core shoes come with their own feet, but the skin matching system is pretty awesome. I had no trouble at all matching to my pale Glam Affair skin, although I did have to play with the sizing a teensy bit. The water fountain in the background is a group gift from [we’re CLOSED], and my cute Frenchie pup can be found in a gacha at The Chapter Four (Love showed the cream-colored pup, as well as the Dandelion and Bumblebee Fairies here).

Blogging soon!

A few decor items of note… the burger and lemonade meal is a group gift from ISPACHI. You must join the Love to Decorate group to get it (sign is next to the gift). The table, chair, and wall art are a group gift from *ionic*. Both groups are free to join, and there are other gifts for you to snap up while you are in the stores. The Fairy Terrarium and the box with the clipboard, magnifying glass, etc., are also from the Ohmai fairy gacha at The Arcade. The pretty pink rose bush behind the chair is by StoraxTree for The Pier Market. And the payphone on the wall is from the .floorplan. gacha at Kustom9.

Blogging soon!

Another view here. Both the record player and the vintage camera are from The Arcade.

I won’t say good-bye, but I will say “until next time.” Be good to each other, and remember to always stay fabulous! 😀

Walk Between The Raindrops

So, in my little corner of the world, we are definitely stuck in between seasons… There’s still a little snow on the ground, but it’s warm enough outside to go out without a winter coat. It seems as if Mother nature just went “eh… I dunno what season it is anymore either” and gave up. If you’re stuck between the seasons as well, Sn@tch‘s new fishing outfit will be perfect for you!

Walk around the raindrops_001

Between the seasons includes 24 pieces to fish up, and has a ton of options! This outfit is great for rain or shine, and as a great bonus, the ballet flats included work with both default avatar feet, and slink feet… AND the outfit includes appliers for Lolas tangos breasts!
