    Well, Fab Folks… I made it almost one month into the New Year without giving in to the beach’s call. But, alas… here I am. Hey, I blame this new to me designer and the free mini dress!

    This is the latest free gift from Sass made for the Teleport HUB Group. Isn’t it cute! It immediately made me think about warm days and waves and that did it. I was off to the beach! The mini comes with a HUD to pick one of five equally summery colors/patterns. Now this is a “Wear your nice panties” dress and is a bit cheeky in the back if you know what I mean.

    Blustery

    Blustery

    Heyya FabFree! I don’t know about you guys but it’s still pretty cold and snowy in my neck of the real life woods. In fact, I finally got to wear my super cute new snow boots today for the first time. ‘Cause when they talk about “lake effect snow” up here… they ain’t kidding around.  So I wanted to do a post with cold weather gear or boots or coats and SpectacledChic’s gacha “Better Days” at the Epiphany event is just the thing!

    I was so lucky to get the Rare for this cozy set right off the bat. It’s always the way when I want a common ( I thought the common blouse was sooo pretty) I pull a Rare. But what the heck, the Rare is pretty cute too. The Rare coat and under shirt comes with a HUD for ten coat colors/patterns,  three colors for the buttons and eight colors for the undershirt.  The coat is a really nicely built item and had gorgeous details and textures. It also comes with the “hands in your pockets” pose and proper alpha built in.

    There are eight colors for the rest of the gacha commons – a simple blouse, a solid colored skirt and a cute bucket type hat. There is also a second Rare in a plaid colored skirt.  All this for just 75L per play!

    Sizes Included

    • Maitreya

    The Epiphany runs until February 12 so don’t miss out!

    First coffee, then everything else

    First coffee, then everything else

    Hello again, FabFree.  I was made aware yesterday of a new shop just for the men. Since this isn’t a common occurrence, I was more than happy to check it out. And I was very glad I did. But first I have to thank the great folks in the FabFreechat group who are the ones who brought this new store to Juli’s attention. She pounced on me the second I got in world and set me to work. ( A tip of the hat to “SB” )

    The new shop is Butterscotch and it’s rather tasty as the name may suggest. When I landed at the front doors I had to dodge my way past loads of new shoppers which I hope is a very good sign of the designer. I joined the free group and immediately got a 400L gift card. A note of warning, if I read the signs correctly, this group will become 50L to join at some point in the future. A good reason to hurry over.  In addition to the gift card, there is also a group gift. This is the ‘Lucas Henley’. It comes with a full fatpack of colors. The HUD includes twenty colors for the Henley shirt and  twenty colors for the undershirt. The build is spot on and the details are very nice indeed.  I really appreciate that the arms and shoulders do not deform when I move. Something many designers miss when making male clothing.  

    I used my gift card to purchase the jeans I’m wearing as well. The ‘Liam’ jeans are available in both singles and a fat pack. I chose the single ‘Denim #1’ pack. I am equally impressed with the jeans as with the top.  I have a feeling I will be showing off many more items from Butterscotch.   

    Also…on a personal note… when you add the item from your inventory a soothing masculine voice says “Butterscotch… enjoy.”   I just… what can I say.  Juli made me take it off and on several times just to hear it again. I do have to admit… It’s an awesome touch.

    Sizes Included ( Both top and Jeans )

    • Belleza Jake
    • Legacy
    • Signature Gianni

    Last Minute Rush

    Last Minute Rush

    Hang on FabFree, this is going to be a quick one!

    Okay, so I’m late to the party for the awesome Kaithleen’s 300L gift card. But while I was doing the photo for yesterday’s blog post, the group notice came through and slapped me right in the face. ONLY ONE MORE DAY to go get my 300L card! That’s right, 300L just for the group members. The Group does cost a teeny 5L to join but wow… it’s still a great bargain. I spent most of my gift card on this gorgeous “Luna” top but there are tons of beautiful things to spend that Holiday ‘cash’ on.

    The caveat is you only have until January 1 to grab that card. Of course the gift card is usable beyond January first.  So get down to Kaithleen’s and help yourself!

    Sizes Included for the Luna Top

    • Belleza – Freya Isis
    • eBody Curvy
    • Legacy
    • Maitreya
    • SLink – Hourglass

    I was so excited to go grab my gift card, I didn’t even change clothes before I popped over. And, being a lazy elf, I didn’t change out of my jeans and new boots! Then I thought… I’m just showing how  cute and versatile the Kathy Boots are! See how different they look using the texture change HUD?! Yeah… that’s it…. 🙂

    In the Grey

    In the Grey

    We are coming right down to the wire for 2020, FabFree. The year can be counted in hours and I for one won’t miss this one. But at least the 2020 year was a good one for hunts and special groups and cool free things.  So this ‘almost the last post for 2020’, I found a couple of nifty giftys from some hunts that are also in their last hours.

    First, is my cute pearl grey sweater  from Starlight Apparel. The “Ember” sweater dress is one of the prizes for the Up To Snow Good Hunt over on the Town called Short Leash SIM. Much like the Spookzilla hunt, each designer has placed gifts priced 0 to 25L all over the sim to find. This sweater is one of the 25L prizes. When you land, you can pick up a folder with all the info and prize guides for easy hunting. Now this IS an adult SIM so a bunch of the prizes are… um… adult in nature and no child avatars are allowed.

    Sizes Included

    • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
    • Maitreya
    • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
    • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

    Okay, Derpy Juli story time. I saw these awesome ” Kathy” boots from Modern Nostalgia on the Peace on Earth hunt web page and I knew I had to have them. The dark charcoal color would go smashingly with my new grey “Ember” sweater, right?! Plus, they’re free! So I went and hunted them down, got home and popped on the sweater opened the boots, wore them …… and they are HOT PINK! What?? Nooo they matched the grey sweater! I’m so peeeeved! I wanted grey, like the picture… I ought to talk to the designer about false adverti….. oh. There’s a color HUD.  Derp.

    So, yeah. There is a great color HUD with thirty five colors and patterns.

    Sizes Included

    • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
    • Maitreya
    • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

    Both of these Hunts only run until the 31st so like bad old 2020 there’s only a short time left to go grab these great prizes!

    Golden

    Golden

    Heyya FabFree! I hope this wintery Monday is treating you well. Or this warm pleasant Monday is treating you well if you’re reading from the other side of the planet. 😉

    Today I have some memories from the ‘olden days’ here on the Grid. When I first started Second Life… I wore nothing but ball gowns. I mean it. Everywhere. The fanciest, flexi-est gowns you’ve ever seen. I think because in real life, I never had a reason to wear some gorgeous gown dripping with jewels and lace. Then I discovered silks… and that’s a story for another time.  So … when I stumbled upon this fantastic designer, I was whisked away back to my early days and all those beautiful ball gowns.

    This stunning gown is the ‘Princess Vivian’ from Celestina’s Weddings. I just can’t get over how lovely this dress is. The details are extraordinary. From the lace overlay to the tiny buttons on the back to the shimmer on the silk skirt and bustle. Just perfect! Honestly, this is hands down the prettiest gown I’ve ever owned in Second Life. 

    And… I was able to pick it up for free. I know, right!? This dress is the last gift on Celestina’s Weddings advent calendar for 2020. You do need to be a group member but as of right now, that’s a free to join group. All of the past gifts are still available. Some are still free and some are priced at 25L. I imagine this gown and all the gifts will eventually be priced at 25L too. So… I don’t know how long this breath taking gown will be free for group members. But even at 25L this is the deal of the year!

    As if this isn’t enough… The diamond jewelry you see here is also included in the gift. And be sure to check out the past group gifts and extras upstairs.

    • Belleza – Freya

    • Legacy Perky
    • Maitreya
