Fab Free Designer of the Week – 01/22/2019 – Sweet Willows

 

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I have another Fabulous designer to share with you today. This time I have the joy of telling you all about Sweet Willows. Sweet Willows is a small but cute shop that caters to both child and adult female avatars. Most of the clothing is casual daywear and sleepwear. There is a small section of toddler and baby clothing, and even a small number of costumes for roleplay, costume parties, or cosplay. I also spotted some very cute adult footie pajamas! The above photo is the main desk. There you can click the little sign being held by the cute corgi to join the Sweet Willows store group. There are also 3 free gifts waiting next to the dancing Storm Trooper. No group tag is required.

To the left of the presents is where you can find the free gift by Sweet Willows for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is free to join if you’re not already a member. Also, if you’re interested, you can look to the right of the desk and see the Sweet Willows store associated groups and events. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Shall We Dance, M’Lady?

A Night at the Ball

Hello there, Fabulouses! It’s not often that I opt to role play in SL, but Ripley happened to catch wind of fantastic his/her free matchy-matchy 18th century outfits that Stan and I just had to check out. If you are a role player in SL, these might be just up your alley! Each gift package includes everything you need from head to toe – all for free with no group join required!

For the Lady…

From wig and hat down to slippered feet, the ladies’ gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit is a complete 18th century outfit perfect for a formal ball. I chose to wear just the gown, gloves, skirt, sleeves, bow and Sacque (kind of like a cape in back), but the gift folder also includes a color change wig, wrap, cap, stockings and slippers. I just love the frilly trim and lace as well as the generous hoop style skirt. I felt so elegant while wearing it! The best part of all was it was completely free and I didn’t have to join any group to pick it up!
Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic clothing layers (gloves, shoe base, stockings, top, underpants, underskirt, alpha layer)
  • Applier for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Omega Advanced Applier HUD
  • Sacque
  • Skirt
  • Right and left sleeves
  • Wig with color change HUD and hairbase
  • Cap
  • Slippers

And For the Gentlemen…

Although he grumbled about wearing a wig, I thought Stan looked dashing in his suit, which is a free gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit. The men’s gift doesn’t have as many separate components like the ladies’ version, but it looks just as spectacular, and includes everything needed for a fantasy evening. From the powdered wig down to the buckled shoes, Stan was all set to go. He really appreciated the fact that he could throw all the clothing on with just one click. There was no need to mess around with adding different layers or separate clothing items. He simply had to decide to go with either the standard or no lace version of the suit and then add his wig. No fuss, no muss and then he was pacing, waiting for me to finish getting ready. Isn’t that the way it always goes? 😉

What’s Included:

  • M Suit
  • M Suit (no lace)
  • Alpha layer
  • Wig

We’re off to enjoy an evening of waltzing and role play. Until next time, happy shopping!

Will you be my galentine?

FabFree: Will you be my galentine?

Hello there Fabulouses!  Vanilla Bae has an uber cute, super feminine 27pc. gacha set at Epiphany called Galentine that includes clothing, shoes and decor too!  You have the option to play 75L per play or you can purchase the fatpack.

What pieces am I wearing?

I’m wearing the rare Tanktop & Strip Skirt (which are both strip versions!), along with the rare Wedges.  All three items come with texture change HUDs so you can mix and match prints and colours depending on your girly moods!  This set is fitted exclusively for Maitreya, and there are plenty of common single colours that you can create outfits with inexpensively.

Decor too!

As I mentioned above, there are also decor items in the set and I have included a few into the photo scene.  There are three Galentine Heart Pillows (Red, Pink & Patterns) and the “love” balloon in the back, that I will stretch to assume was made just for me!  The decor items feature texture change options.

Looking for Winter

Looking for Winter

As much as I’d like to pretend we get real winter weather here in Texas… we don’t. I have a real life closet full of cute winter boots and coats that get no love. If I want snow… I have to get on the grid!

Fuzzy Elegance

It seems like an oxymoron, but this fantastic hat, coat and boots set is just that. Fuzzy and elegant. This is the ‘Fur Pocket Winter Coat’ set and it is one of the In-Store gachas at Amiable’s main store. You get the coat, the boots, the great fuzzy hat AND the sweater all for 65L per play. I was lucky enough to pull one of the two rares and got the cream colored coats and a HUD for the sweater with eight color choices. Amiable has a ton of gacha machines in store right next to the ton of past Group Gifts, all ready for us bargain hunters!

Sizes Included

  • One size Fit Mesh (I had no problems fitting it to Maitreya at all)

One Magical Winter Day

One Winter Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m finally feeling better and am so glad to be back to blogging again.  I’ve missed you!  Ripley and I celebrated our return to SL by exploring the trail of the Magical Winter Hunt.  At C!L Botique, we discovered this gorgeous winter gown for just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of time searching.  Trust me, this outfit is well worth the effort to locate the hunt object, which is a snowflake.

Winter Elegance

Everything I have on in the photo is included in the hunt prize, as well as a cape that I opted not to wear.  Featuring an ivory color scheme and delicate details, I would have happily paid way more than one Linden dollar for it.  I just love the shoulder cut outs which offer a glimpse of skin while still leaving long sleeves to keep your arms warm.  The gown itself features a silvery trim and a beautifully detailed, ornate texture.  Its long train sweeps the ground, which makes it quite suitable for formal events.  The fluffy cap is sure to keep your head toasty warm on the chilliest winter day.  I have to say, this outfit has to be one of my most favorite hunt prizes!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until next time, happy hunting!

What do you mean you’re done?

FabFree: What do you mean you're done?

Hello there Fabulouses!   It looks as though I won’t be counting on these guys for a ride back to the JellyRoll Closing Sale.  I’ll have to find my own way… and I will because it’s one fantastic sale!

25L JellyRoll Closing Sale

I’m sad to see that JellyRoll plans to close it’s inworld doors on January 19th, but sometimes we do need to step back to focus on RL things, and it looks like it might be the case with JellyRoll.  The ad does state that their items will still be available on Marketplace and that they will be doing releases there as time allows, so that’s good news.

JellyRoll - Store Closing SALE

What did I get in my first trip?

I picked up the Autumn Sweaters that came with a texture change HUD with plenty of different options and the Giselle Hair which came with the hat!  Both items set me back 25L each.    I really do need to go back and pick up some more :D.

Happy shopping, and best wishes to Tavish Zane of JellyRoll!

Happy New Year, indeed!

Happy New Year, indeed

We are a week and a half into the new year but I think it’s still time to say “Happy New Year”! Why not, right? 2019 is rolling along and I still want it to be “Happy”!

Happy X three

Hilly Haalan must agree because there is not one, but three “Happy New Year” free gifts set out for us. They are all lovely but this one is my favorite. This is the ‘Katelyn’ sweater and the ‘Kylie’ leggings. The gorgeous scarf is removable and resizable for a perfect fit. The gift also has a fantastic pair of stiletto heels to match. Just join the Hilly Haalan group, which is free to join, and help yourself to a ton of great current and past gifts. You will not be disappointed!
