Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!

Aloha!

Aloha!

I was on the Women’s Stuff Hunt trail and found this Hawaiian ensemble that I had to show you! It comes with the beautiful mesh dress (in all the standard mesh sizes and a quality alpha layer) plus the flower anklets, and a wicker bag full of flowers for you to hold (not shown).

Where to pick up your prize…

You can hunt for this dancing (or relaxing) dress and all its accessories at the Yokana Store where once you find the iconic red t-shirt this gift is yours for just 1 little Linden.

Happy Hunting!

Jeweled and a[MUSE]ed

A little fantasy.

NSP florals and [MUSE] set out a great Women’s Stuff Hunt gift that had me thinking along the lines of fantasy and roleplay. It’s only 1L and a little hunting time for the iconic red T-shirt and you get the hair and jeweled hair piece pictured above. The two pieces are separate so you can wear the jeweled headpiece with any other hair that you have. As a bonus, there is an included hud to change the color of the jewels on the headpiece. The hair only comes in the one color and reminds me a bit of old fashioned wigs, but I liked it nonetheless. I thought it was fun!

Matching the pair.

I hadn’t been by Wicca’s Wardrobe in a while and was happy to pick up their latest group gift. The group is 99L to join, but they offer monthly group gifts and the gifts are always top quality. There is always a gift out for both the ladies and the gents. This month I was able to pick up the Belle Dress in Spring Flower.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Tori-tastic!

Tori-tastic Hello Fab Free’rs I’ve got several things to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it! I love this complete look, and I hope you do also. I had really hoped to get an “out and about” style photo of the complete look, but my computer/internet connection have other ideas! Ah well.

Starting with the romper Pru has on, I loved the pattern of the material and the bright colors. This low cut halter style romper is the Women’s Hunt prize you can find at Maci. The hint tells you to find Carmen to find the hidden dollarbie hunt prize. In the box you’ll find several mesh fits including classic mesh sizes, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Eve (Slim, Pulpy), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), and TMP. Not to mention I think this romper is great for showing off the white henna style tattoo from Letis that Pru is wearing!

Next, I am forever in love with the shoes from Empire! These thigh high strap-y creations are the August group gift for the Empire VIP group. The gift comes with a full “fat pack” color hud so you’ll have the ability to choose from any of the standard Empire shoe colors. Also, you can color individual parts of the shoes differently to match your outfit. The gift includes a Maitreya, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) , and Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) foot and body fits. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens which may seem steep, but if you’re as crazy about shoes as I am, it’s beyond worth it. You’ll not only get access to these shoes FREE, you’ll be able to pick up several of the past group gifts as well.

As if this cute little outfit needed any more sass, I decided to add in this blue toned face piercing by Suicidal Unborn!. It’s like the cherry on the sundae! This septum/Marilyn combo is perfect for something subtle, and the blue color makes it a little more  unique than other similar piercings. You can find this piercing set for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Heyya Fabfree! I hope your weekend is going as wonderfuly as mine!

Late Afternoon

I just dropping in to show off a couple of fresh finds for us.  I’m still opening boxes and bags from the Women’s Stuff Hunt and when I opened this super cute top from Tin Roof, I knew I had to show y’all. This is the ‘Daisies’ top and it’s the 1L prize for the hunt. Daisies comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and FitMesh for SLink, Belleza, Maitreya and TMP.  The rusty red is an exclusive color for this top only for the Women’s Stuff Hunt!

My skirt is a free Group Gift from a ‘New To Me’ designer -> Egoxentrikax.  This is the ‘Pao’ skirt and it’s the current free group gift in the main shop. Pao comes in FitMesh sizes XXS-XXL as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and SLink.  If beige isn’t your color, the gift also includes this skirt in a denim blue.

As always, I wish y’all the best weekend out there on the Grid. And, since you’re going to be out there… why not grab a picture and submit it to the FabFree Photo Challenge! I know our readers have some wild creativity! So lets see it!  The contest begins August 15 so don’t delay.

Aries

Heyya FabFree!

Aries

It’s Saturday and that means it’s Juli’s Hunt Day!  I’m back on the Women’s Stuff Hunt because, wow, there’s some nifty prizes for this round! My first show-off is from BlueMoon Enterprise which never fails to amaze. This is the ‘Solas’ gown and it’s the free Women’s Stuff Hunt prize. This gorgeous gown comes in Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. The bow and the gauzy skirts are all a very delicate looking Flexi. Normally, I’m not crazy about Flexi but this is so very well made it just flows and I love it. The gown can be worn without the Flexi pieces for a more modern sleek look as well.

In my wanders around the grid, I stopped in to Blues Hair to see what was new and I was fortunate enough to snag one of the free Lucky Board prizes that perfectly matches with my new gown. This is ‘Aries’ and it includes the fantastic horns you see. The gift comes with a HUD for the horns containing ten natural looking colors. The hair’s HUD also has ten pretty pastel colors that come in ‘roots’ and regular versions. One note, the hair and the horns are one item and they cannot be worn separately.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt runs until August 31 so get out there and hunt! One quick note – Some of the designers in the Women’s Stuff Hunt have placed their prizes for 1L or for 0L… either way you’re going to get a really great gift! 🙂

Hibiscus Morning

Hello hello, FabFree!

Hibiscus Morning

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is on and I am almost overwhelmed with all of the great prizes the designers have turned in this time. It was really hard to pick what I wanted to show off first! But I guess that’s kind of a cool problem to have. 🙂

I picked this super cute shorts and top set from LOo LOo and Platypus, one because the store name kills me and two because I love this set. This is the ‘Hibiscus’ shorts and top set and you can pick it up for 1 little linden.  Each piece is separate and comes with a good alpha layer. Each piece comes in FitMesh sizes XS-XL and they also come with appliers for SLink, Belleza and Maitreya.  Not only do you get the clothes, you also get the pretty red flower for your hair.  Just a perfect look for a morning stroll on the beach with a friend, don’t ya think?

I also wanted to show off my cute sneakers from one of my ‘go -to’ designers: More than Ever.  These are the ‘Wildflower Low Tops’ and they are the current in-store gacha. You can find eighteen commons in every color imaginable and three Rares with a little friend on them. At 50L per play you can fill up your closet. The sneakers come with a good alpha and fit my SLink flat Feet beautifully.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt runs all of this August but you won’t want to wait to hunt down some seriously cool prizes.

Oh My Stars!

Oh My Stars! 1

It’s 25L Tuesday! And If you stop by Lua’s today you can pick up the Alma dress (which in my opinion is a STUNNING gown in one of three colors — black, red or purple). This gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes for a terrific fit, is strapless, and has a mermaid style skirt that is just delectable. This is one to definitely add to your inventory! And for a mere 25L, why not pick up all three colors? I’m modeling it for you in black, today.

Oh My Stars! 2

To add a touch of class, I picked up the FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from Stars! which is this lovely jewelry set called Fleur. This EXCLUSIVE Gift set includes the pretty pearl and red gem-ed necklace, earrings, and two bracelets. Just find the little red t-shirt and you are all set.

If you are an avid photographer and noticed my fantastic poses, you should stop by Belle Epoque today as well. This lovely creator is offering two pose packs for the 25L Tuesday special. I’m showing you two poses out of the “What You Do To Me” pose pack, but there is another Pose Pack up for 25L that is equally lovely.

Enjoy your Tuesday!

A Rogue Smoke

A Rouge Smoke

I decided to take a smoke break today, especially after Loki stole my spotlight yesterday… and all because he shirked responsibility and left me holding the bag. The cat food bag that is! Lucky for me, I was able to pick up a set of amazing pipes called Rouge Pipes in 3 colors at [since 1975] as a FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift. They are shaped like lipstick applicators, there are three different colors in the box, and they have a gentle smoke particle as well as a soft glowing ember for realism.

I needed a great outfit… something sultry but equally mysterious, maybe also a bit Gothic… and found just what I was looking for at GAALL. This Mayfair Outfit is a dress and comes with the matching slink boots. What I love is that you also get a color change hud for six color choices for the outfit. This outfit is a real zinger too as far as fit. It is mesh and comes in not only the standard mesh sizes for fit, but also Maitreya, Physique, Venus, Isis, and Freya. And you get all this for just 1 little Linden as part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt.

Now, I will forewarn you, I did find the dress to be a bit short for my modest tastes. It’s definitely long enough to cover your assets… but I paired it with a set of leggings to suit me. You could certainly wear it alone, though!

A Rouge Smoke 2

While I was at GAALL, I noticed an Easter Egg that was selling for only 1L as well, and realized it was part of the Easter Hunt… and was pleased to discover a trio of beautiful dresses inside! They are African inspired dresses with a mesh main dress in standard sizes, and Maitreya applier sleeves. I wore dress option 1 which is a really nice green design. There is also a blue print, and a black and white zebra print in the egg if you find it.
