Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/20/2018 – ALB

ALB Exterior
If you’ve never been to ALB (AnaLee Balut) you should go, even if only to see the store. It’s a unique Arabian themed desert oasis. Walking through the store in places is reminiscent of a street bazaar. The main part of the store is several stories, so there’s plenty to explore. At ALB you’ll find mostly ladies clothing, though there is a random mens item here and there. The style at ALB is a little harder to pinpoint! Eclectic is a good word to start with. There is everything from shoes and accessories, to lingerie and ballgowns. You’ll also find fantasy inspired clothing, fashion inspired by history, and even some of what I would call Gorean clothing. As I mentioned, there’s a lot to be had!
ALB Fab Gift
Probably one of the most notable things about the ALB main store is the large camel statue in the center of the main floor. In this same area you’ll quickly be able to spot the ALB gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This gift is free and exclusive to Fabulously Free in SL group members, so don’t forget to wear your group tag! There are two additional group gifts on the same column as the Fab Free gift. Each requires a separate group tag.ALB Gifts & Wearable Demos

As you browse through the vastness at ALB you’ll note that some items have floating text that may say “group gift” or simply “enjoy” among other things. These items are usually group gifts you can purchase for free while wearing your store group tag. The store group is LAMU and it has a one time join fee of 250 linden. Another unique aspect to shopping at ALB are their “wearable demos.” These items often have floating text as well that will say “demo” or something similar. These wearable demos are often free but sometimes cost between 0 and 10 linden. I spotted both group gifts and wearable demos throughout all the floors of the ALB store. The above photos are of a few but I am certain not all of these gift types just to give you an idea of the genuinely wide range of items. Happy shopping Fab Free, and have a wonderful weekend.

Tropical Summer Days

La Isla Bonita
Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! Don’t mind Pru’s expression, she has resting b!$&# face. I’m really quite happy with the fabulous finds I have to share with you. I hope you like them too. For today I have 3 goodies, this summer hat and hairstyle from Pink Hustler, the gorgeous tattoo from This is Wrong, and this fun sundress from Continuum.

The Hair & Hat – A good hat hairstyle is sometimes hard to find in Second Life. This one had me at hello. It’s one of quite a few group gifts available at Pink Hustler. The gift comes with an “Essentials” color hud that also has some pretty pastel options. Additionally there’s a few color options for the hat. The Pink Hustler group has a steep one time join fee of 500 linden. I do however thing the abundance of gifts make the fee worth while.

The Tattoo – This colorful tattoo reminds me of fractals and stained glass. I think I’ll be wearing it often! It is a free Lucky Letter board prize at This is Wrong. No group is needed to participate. There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at This is Wrong. Two have female tattoos with appliers for female bodies, and two have male tattoos with appliers for male bodies. This tattoo comes in several appliers with the option of regular and a faded version.
Appliers Included: Maiterya/Belleza, Slink, TMP

The Sundress – The bright yellow and teal sundress Pru has on is the most recent Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Continuum. It comes in a few mesh sizes and is free to all Fab Free group members, just wear your Fab Free group tag, pay the vendor 1 linden, your gift will be delivered, and you’ll be refunded your 1 linden. If you’re not a Fab Free group member, the Fab Free group is free to join.  Also, included with this cute little sundress is an alpha layer, so it is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars.
Sizes Included: Fitted Mesh, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Altamura, eBody

Daydreaming of Lisa Frank

Dreaming of Lisa Frank
Hello hello Fab Free! Summer in the southern part of the U.S. (and just about everywhere else from what I understand) has become synonymous with blazing heat. It’s hot out ya’ll! It’s easier to stay cool when you can lounge in the shade wearing a cute little summer dress and open-toe shoes. Both these summer wardrobe essentials are free group gifts you won’t want to miss.

The DressHilly Haalan has more than one free group gift available. The dress Pru has on is the “Debbie” dress. It comes in several sizes, and includes a texture change hud with quite a few graphic tee style options and an equal number of solid colors to choose from. The Hilly Haalan group is also free to join at this time. This fun yellow version with the leopard spots made me instantly think of Lisa Frank. Don’t know who Lisa Frank is? Google her. You’re welcome in advance for all the colorful rainbow goodness. P.S. There’s a copy of the original vendor ad for the Debbie dress toward the bottom of the post.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

The Shoes – These fierce looking purple shoes from Heels are almost as hot as the weather! I kind of want to wear them with everything. The Heels by Morgan W. group is free to join at the moment. These shoe come in the deep purple color shown with a few size options.
Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Pink Like A Flamingo

Pink Like A Flamingo
Happy Tuesday Fab Free! Once again adorable pink flamingos have found their way onto the Fab Free blog. I think this must be the summer of flamingos. Flamingo summer maybe? Either way I dig it! These cute short shorts are a new group gift at zOOm. You also might recall I mentioned a free group gift hairstyle at Letituier in my previous post “See No Evil.” This pink and blonde dip dyed hairstyle is it! Lastly, I added this cute little polka-dotted dollarbie top from Teepa to complete the look. I hope you like it!

The Hair – This fun summer hairstyle is a free group gift at Letituier. The Letituier group is free to join at this time, so don’t miss out. Also if you haven’t shopped the Retirement Sale happening at Letituier, you’ll want to be sure to do that too. The sale hairstyles are just 55 linden per color pack. This group gift style comes in the single color shown.

The Top – This one is for the Maitreya Lara body wearers. This tiny tube top is a Marketplace dollarbie by Teepa. It comes in the single size, however there are other Marketplace listings for the same top in different textures in the Teepa Marketplace store.

The Shorts – These shorts are so cute on, even though they are a tad shorter and lower than I would usually wear. They are a current group gift at zOOm. The zOOm group is 75 linden to join at this time and there is an entire shelf full of group gifts available. If flamingos aren’t you’re thing, don’t worry, this gift has a texture change hud with 10 different textures to pick from. All of them are cute!

See No Evil

See No Evil
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I recently came across this interesting blindfold from This is Wrong. It’s a free group gift that is just too cool looking to not share with you. Also, Letituier is having a Retirement Sale you won’t want to miss out on. I hope you enjoy these fun and interesting finds.

The HairLetituier is having a Retirement Sale. All hair packs are just 55 linden each. Gachas are set at 55 linden per pull as well. Letituier is known for more editorial and creative. They remind me of the styles you see in fashion magazines and on runway models during a high fashion show. I’m not sure how long this sale will last, so don’t wait! Also the Letituier group is free to join and there is a current free group gift.

The BlindfoldThis is Wrong has this unisex blindfold out as a free group gift. This gift has resize scripts and would be great for role play and creative photos. I really like all the detail with the heart-shaped locks. The This is Wrong group is 50 linden to join at this time. Along with this unisex blindfold gift, there are 4 lucky letter boards, 2 with female tattoos, and 2 with male tattoos.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Yeah You #SHOOK Me

You #SHOOK Me
Hey there Fab Free’rs, as always I am so glad you’re here! My long week is finally starting to wind down, and I am excited to share with you some awesome group gifts and this pretty Lucky Letter board hairstyle. The group gifts from #SHOOK have me all shook up, pun intended! I’m also pleased as punch with this free Lucky Letter board hairstyle from Little Bones. Thanks to the lovely Grace for the teleport when my letter came up!

The Hair – So either I had forgotten or maybe they are new, I’m not sure, but Little Bones has not 1 but 2 Lucky Letter boards that do not require an sort of group to participate in. Thanks to Grace’s thoughtfulness I was able to pick up the Winona hair pictured in “The Blondie” pack for free.

The Top & Jewelry – I’m over here singing “You #SHOOK me allll night long…” because that song is the first thing that comes to mind when I read the word “shook.” Right now you can get #SHOOK too with their 3 current group gifts. The #SHOOK group is just 50 linden to join, and you can pick up the top, necklace, and choker shown for free while wearing your group tag. The top includes a hud that lets you pick from 3 summery prints, and allows you to custom color or hide the lace edges. The transparent choker is also a free group gift and it comes in 3 variations, one with silver studs (shown), one with gold studs, and one with rose gold studs. The third group gift at #SHOOK is this tiered “Leo” necklace. It comes in 3 versions, one with a moon (shown), one with a star, and one with a heart. The necklace has a color change hud as well with 2 options for the little crystal, and several metal color options.

Teal for Two

Two for Teal
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Like my new claws? They are a super cute new group gift at E.Marie. Along with the new nails, I picked up this dress from MH Unique. It reminded me a lot of the MH Unique Design dress Aline showed in her post here, which I missed out on. So I was happy to see this more recent group gift. I kinda feel like it’s been one of those “long weeks” even though it’s only Wednesday. Ha! So bare with me and I’ll get you all the hows and wheres of getting your hands on these fantastic group gifts.

The Claws – I love that these are mesh nails that work with bento hands rather than nail appliers. This particular set is a current group gift at E.Marie. The set comes in a few sizes, and the pink/teal color gradient with pretty gold flecks. There are also a few other equally cute group gifts available. The E.Marie group is 50 linden to join. I’ll include a copy of the vendor ad so you can get a better look at these super cute nails.
Sizes Included: Slink Dynamic, Vista Prohand, Maitreya Lara
e.marie // Group Gift July

The Dress – This cute sleeveless dress is a current group gift at MH Unique Design. The dress comes with a color change hud that allows you to pick from 10 solid colors, that all seem to have this pretty satiny finish. The MH Unique Design group has a one time join fee of 100 linden at this time.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic Curvy

Born Sinner

Born Sinner
Hello Fab Free’rs! Ignore the expression on Pru’s face, I’m happy you’re here! I initially thought the expression looked kinda cool with this sassy group gift dress from OOPS. After closer inspection, I think the expression paired with this pose and hair makes it look like Pru is really disgusted with her braid. Hahaha Oh well! Speaking of group gifts, these curved horns are a group gift from Psycho Barbie. Keep reading and I’ll give you all the info about these awesome group gifts.

The Horns – It’s never been a secret, I love horns. These horns come in classic black and can be resized via touch menu. One of the things I like about these group gift horns from Psycho Barbie is that they are individually placed. What I mean is, there’s a right horn and a left horn, they can be positioned and resized individually. To get yours head over to Psycho Barbie and join the in world group.  there is a one time join fee of 50 lindens. You’ll find this gift on a shelf with several other previous group gifts.

The Dress – I like that this provocative dress is a little bit goth and a little bit punk rock. It is a recent group gift at OOPS. With this gift you’ll get the dress in 2 versions, one with a plaid skirt (shown), and a second one with a black skirt that has little white crosses. Both dresses say “Born Sinner” at the waist. They also come in several mesh sizes. The OOPS group has a one time join fee of just 10 linden and there is more than one group gift currently available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.
