Hiya everyone! Tonight I decided to explore some gifts for the FabFree group, which is short for Fabulously Free in SL. The group is the in-world presence of the wonderful FabFree blog, of which I have been a fan for almost as long as I've been in SL now. It is such a helpful source of inspiration, about free or especially affordable fashion and fun events to visit. Plenty of participating designers offer free group gifts in their stores for the FabFree group members, which is free to join as always, so that is another clear benefit of having them in one of your group slots :) Let's take a look at a sampling of the designers' generous gifts.
Entice is offering their A Thousand Miles Dress - Navy as a gift for the FabFree group. It has a full skirt to mid-thigh and a tank top with a difference, that being the trio of leathery buckled straps holding each side of the top closed. The gift includes plenty of sizes for all: 5 classic, 5 fitmesh, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine.
Next we visit GLITTER, by heading south from the landing point through the courtyard and turning around when we reach the back wall. It is beneath the stairs with other group's gifts, and is called Chloe Fitmesh Dress 3 in 1 via HUD Bronze. It includes standard mesh sizes along with eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. Also provided is a handy HUD that lets you choose from solid long (as seen on the left), solid short, sheer short (right, the top is slightly sheer so my arm is intentionally hiding my breast) or even completely off. You could do a clever striptease style dance with this dress and HUD combo!
To find this gift, you need to head south from the landing area too, in a quirky little coincidence :) Walk past all the gachas in the middle of the courtyard (yes, I know those are hard to resist) and down to the group gifts area at MOoH! where you'll see a FabFree sign and this awesome gift called Kim Romper. It comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions, with a HUD that offers 6 colors. All the colors are trimmed in white, from the scalloped edges to the tiny belt with bow tie. Spring will be here soon, so this will make a great go-to outfit.
One last look of the night, this is the gift from YM SHOP called Again Outfit. It includes sizes for standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP, with a fantastic HUD that offers 35 colors each for top, skirt, and belt, and 10 choices for the studs (gems?) on the belt. You can go completely one color like I did on the right, or play around with various shades to create a combination that matches your mood. It is no secret that I am a huge fan of the versatility found with HUDs, and this is a stellar example of why.
I still have a bit of a sore throat, but it is a little better and I imagine it will continue to improve throughout the week. Menthol in cough drops upsets my stomach too much so I'm always on the lookout for ones without, and Smith Bros. has a warm apple pie flavor that is made with pectin, OMG they taste so good! I highly recommend them if your throat is dry or scratchy but you don't need the menthol. The sick family member I mentioned recently went to the doctor this afternoon and has a sinus infection, so not contagious, therefore my throat could just be allergies or a random tiny touch of a bug. Oh well, I do hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
