Hiya everyone! Tonight's post contains no April Fools jokes, just treats, all of which are for the FabFree group (free to join). The group name is short for Fabulously Free in SL, and I have shown you gifts that you can claim with this group tag active before and will surely do so again :) Longtime fan, this will always hold a place among my precious group slots and I have also followed their blog faithfully for most of my 11+ years in SL. It is a great way to keep informed about sales and events, and the gifts from so many generous designers are an awesome perk. If you spent lots of lindens this weekend like I did (see my new head) it is extra helpful to be able to find new clothes while being kind to your linden balance.
My first look is our gift from Salty, a gorgeous gown called Mia Party Gown 1. Its bold violet shade is accentuated by sequins on the upper part of the skirt before flowing into a mermaid shape, and the belt is a built in accessory. This gift includes sizes for Freya, Isis Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies.
For a more casual look, head to :.C!L.: and claim their FabFree gift, the Flamboyant Frog Love Top & Pants Set. These well coordinated pieces are each provided in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. That zipper on the back of the pants is a fun detail, and the knotted style of the tee really draws attention to our handsome froggy friend.
NoW & WooW is offering this Valentin's Gift Dress to all FabFree group members, in 2 versions with a very subtle color/shade difference between them. They are each provided in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with attached belt and zippered styling. The pleated skirt is daringly short, and this may have been released around Valentine's Day but it is clearly suitable for any day of the year.
My final look of the evening is courtesy of NUTS Inc, their Esther Dress which makes me want to go dancing. The delivery HUD has a handy feature where you only deliver the sizes you need, each brand has its own button: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, and the Classic avatar image will deliver 5 standard sizes to you. If you think you might ever purchase another mesh body, just hang onto the delivery HUD and you can easily obtain the new size. Speaking of HUDs, the dress itself has a color HUD with 7 choices for each, the dress and the fringe. Such a playful look, I can't wait to decide where to wear it first.
Today was a pretty weird day in RL, dealing with invading rodents and people who have a bad habit of "vaguebooking", you know those facebook posts like "well I guess I have no friends, nobody cares about me" seeking attention repeatedly? If someone posts a few times a week like that, just wanting people to reassure them that they are liked and a good person, chances are they are going to push people away instead, including myself. If someone expresses a genuine problem or even a clear reason to be temporarily frustrated, that is way more likely to get a response from me. In other news, LOL, I am eager for the new month since it means new hunts and events to explore, and there should be a lot of exciting things to show you as a result. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
