Free Is Fabulous

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I realized I had not shared any FabFree group gifts in quite a while, so off I went to explore their gift listing and then visit some wonderful stores with my "I am Fabulous" group tag active. The FabFree in SL group is the inworld presence of the blog of the same name, which has been a very useful guide to my entire time in SL really with its information about gifts and sales and special events. FabFree has stood the test of time in an environment where things can change rapidly, and I appreciate being able to rely on them for so long. Naturally the group is free to join, and you can usually find the gifts by looking for the rainbow hued logo on a sign near each gift. Clicking the sign will offer the link to join the FabFree group, just in case you haven't become a part of the community yet. They will always have a place among my most prized group slots ♥.

My first stop was NUTS Inc, where I eagerly claimed their flirty Sarai Romper gift for FabFree. This designer has handy delivery HUDs, where you click the logo of the brand of body you wear and will receive a folder of just that size/s. So there are buttons for classic, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Legacy, Maitreya (Lara), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), and Tonic (Curvy, Fine). Each folder contains the outfit along with a 6 color HUD so you can change the look to suit your mood or to match your favorite accessories. 

ALB also has a treat for FabFree group members, their JANTJE outfit leo by AnaLee Balut. I have seen references to using leopard print as a neutral, so seeing it paired with vibrant red feels like such a fun idea :) The top and pants are each provided in classic sizes (S, M, L, and a classic Fitmesh) as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body versions. They are each unique designs, with the straps and belt of the shirt and the flared legs with embellished holes alongside front slits at each hem. 

I then stopped by MOoH! where I found this playful Rebecca Outfit on the wall at the far end of their courtyard from the landing area. It consists of the corset dress with ruffles on top and buckled straps below, in standard mesh sizes plus eBody Classic, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique body sizing. There is also a HUD for our dress with 6 color choices, all variations of the black plaid on the ruffle and the skirt. The matching solid black thigh socks are provided too, in a standard size as well as ones for all the same bodies as the dress. There are alpha layers for both the dress and socks, so you can hide anything that pokes through on your classic avatar or BOM mesh body. 

Another generous store is Mangula, where I was able to claim this pretty Alba Set Dress [White] by the front door with my FabFree group tag active. It is a body conscious mini dress with V neck that has 4 buttons, and the gift includes a HUD with 20 color choices for those buttons. The dress itself comes in eBody Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh body sizes. 

My final look this evening is courtesy of GeMyles, where you too can claim their FabFree gift called Mila Flounce Mini Dress. It includes standard mesh sizes plus a fitted version (shown) and Slink sizes for Hourglass and Physique bodies, with a matching pair of Slink high shoes that are not shown here. The fitted mesh worked quite well with the Maitreya body, and I used the alpha (BOM) layer instead of trying to use individual sections on the alpha tab of the Maitreya HUD to make it fit even better. This second instance of animal print in one post is making me so happy, and did you notice these spots are heart shaped? CUTE! 

It was a quiet Sunday here, and I am curious to see what the week ahead holds both in RL and SL. There are always new rounds of events and hunts, not to mention all the various group gifts around the grid to enjoy, and as far as RL I do not have anything specific planned this week which is promising for SL adventures. There is about a week and a half before the hockey season starts up again, and I am definitely looking forward to that :) I hope you are all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
