Fab Free Designer Friday 2.0 – Satus Inc.

Happy Friday Fab Free! Thank you as always for being here. I’m excited about today’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. Satus Inc. has participated as a Fab Free designer for quite a few years. It’s hard to describe the Satus Inc. store simply because they have so much to offer. This could almost be consider a “one-stop” shop. Really and truly there’s something for everyone.

At Satus Inc. you’ll find female fashion, poses, furniture, decor, gadgets and gizmos. The ladieswear at Satus Inc. is mostly comprised of casual dresses, though there are what I would call business attire dresses, and even a few cocktail type gowns. You’ll also see casual clothes like shorts, sleepwear, and t-shirts, along with shoes and some accessories. Most of the ladies clothing is upstairs.

As for the furniture and decor there is a wide range of indoor and outdoor furniture, with PG and Adult animations. I suggest taking a moment to really look around. You never know what you might find. There are also quite a few fun and useful gadgets at Satus Inc. Again, I strongly suggest planning a shopping trip to check out all this shop has to offer. Poses are under the stairs to the left, and the furniture is on the first floor to the right, with a little bit of everything else in between. Group gifts of all kinds are on the wall to the left in front of the stairs.

Satus Inc. Group

There are 30 group gifts for the Satus Inc. group. That’s not a mistake, the Satus Inc. group is just 25 linden to join and there are 30 total group gifts out at this time. There’s also a group-only Midnight Madness board, and a single Lucky Letter board with no group required. Joining the Satus Inc. group gets you instant access to all the gifts, and updates on future gifts and promotions.

Tea Party

Tea Party

In the spirit of social distancing and the need for sunshine, I had a tea party with this adorably grumpy-faced pup and a rabbit. It was quite fun and not nearly as mad as it might sound. Although, we are all a little mad here. My tea party companion and the perfect springtime jacket are both freebies. One I didn’t even know I had, the other I couldn’t resist. Keep reading for details about both, and my tea party credits will be listed at the end.

The Pup

This is little pupper is the furry companion I didn’t realize I already had. Do yourself a favor, if you haven’t already, and search your inventory for “Ashton.” This cute doggo is part of the “Ashton” starter avatar in your Inventory’s Library. This pet is called “Ashton – Pet (Hold).” I first came across this little guy as a freebie listed on the Marketplace. It was that listing that alerted me to his/her existence in my very own inventory. Needless to say, I had to pass this along to you incase you were every bit as unaware as I was.

COCO 

I’m really into the springtime floral prints lately. This jacket is the most recent group gift at COCO. I really like the print, and the scrunched up sleeves. The COCO group is free to join, and there’s an entire wall of group gifts. To get yours, just join the free group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya), Legacy **Also, the designer noted that Belleza body users should use the “perky breast” option when wearing this jacket.

Rise Up

Rise Up

Good evening, FabFree. I, like most of you, am stuck at home while the virus takes over the real world. However, I refuse to let it scare me into hiding here on the Grid. And yet… I have joined the “Stay At Home Club”. Hopefully you have as well. There are some choice free gifts being offered and they haven’t forgotten the men.

Rise

Ascend, in particular has been very generous with their gifts. Blue showed us all this shirt for the SLF&O group earlier.  This is the Hideo Trench and trousers. If you don’t care for the colors I’ve chosen. you can change them up with the HUDs. Because you are getting the entire Fatpack for both the top coat, cardigan and shirt and the trousers. If you simply purchased this set it would cost you well over 2000L. Honestly, it’s worth the price when you consider the staggering amount of color combinations you can make with the HUDs and the extremely high quality build and design. But for now… it’s free. Be aware, you must pay the vender 1L and it pays you back also the top is it’s own Fatpack and the trousers are their own Fatpack. Each must be purchased separately.

If you have time… drop a thank you note to Ascend for their generosity and wonderful community spirit!

So Shiny

So Shiny

Good Evening, FabFree! Monday the 13th… now that’s my idea of an unlucky day. Well, except that 13 has always been a lucky number for me… and I don’t mind Mondays. Okay, I don’t know where I was going with this except that I played some Gachas over at Shiny Shabby and I got lucky and …. unlucky.

Go for Gray

Anyway.  I hopped over to the Shinny Shabby to see what they had in store for us today. Lots of really gorgeous things, I even spent some “real” lindens. But there are a lot of lovely free gifts set out by generous designers too. Just join the free Shiny Shabby group and collect the presents at many of the booths. I was tickled to see that !gO!, one of my favs, had a gift box for us some I hurry over to the booth. And, of course I fell in love with the beautiful Jola Gacha.

The delightful dress and vest combo comes in five colors as does the fur coat. You can also win heels and matching shoulder bags ( not shown )  The shoulder bag I am showing is !gO!’s free gift to everyone! Just join the free Shinny Shabby group and pick up your gift. My unlucky came in that I couldn’t pull the Rare… but I’m happy as can be with my winnings!

Sizes Included for the Jola Gacha

  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Nuts Inc.


Welcome to the Blog Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re ready for this edition of Fab Free Designer of the Week. This time we have the pleasure of sharing Nuts Inc. with you. This fun little shop has brightly colored fashion for men and women. Yep, you read that right, there’s menswear at Nuts Inc. along with ladieswear. As you enter the store you’ll find the clothing separated by women’s fashion on the left and men’s fashion on the right. The clothing styles range from casual wear to formal, and everything in between. I even spotted a ballgown or two. There is also a second floor at Nuts Inc. with a few seasonal and miscellaneous clothing items.

First however you’ll want to stop by the front desk. There you can find a group gift for guys and one for gals. The Nuts Inc. group has a one time join fee of 15 linden. In addition to the current group gifts, you’ll find a 70 linden promotional offer in the same area of the Nuts Inc. store. Just look for it on the wall opposite the desk. Right next to it you’ll spot the colorful Fab Free logo above the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free tag for this one. If you’re not already a member, you can join for free. As you explore the Nuts Inc. shop be sure to make it to the back of the store. It’s there you’ll find a kiosk with quite a few past group gifts still available. Finally, next to the past group gifts you can also get all the store information such as their Flickr and redeliveries. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Extraordinary

Extraordinary

As some of you may know, I am an opinionated sort of person. I have little issue expounding on most any subject, especially when I have strong feelings on such subject. That said, Julianna threated to lock me in a closet if I made my true feelings about most of the free offerings for the men of Second Life. So let me merely say, Thank You, Contraption. Thank you for going above and beyond for the men of L’Homme with this gift.

Not Just Another Ball Cap

This is the Jasper Waistcoat and shirt and it’s the completely free gift for the L’Homme reader’s Group. I am genuinely impressed with the style and the attention to details in this piece. The Jasper Waistcoat is offered in store in several other colors at a reasonable cost. And you may be inclined to indulge. Yet, Contraption has given us a superb piece, in a color we want. It’s a high quality gift and I for one am very happy with it.

The waistcoat will look best with high waisted pants, especially if you are going for a clean cut Steam or authentic Victorian look. Contraption has also included a cummerbund applier HUDs for Belleza, Miatreya, Omega and Signature.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • SLink

A quick note – Contraption has included some Female sizes for the waistcoat. The breast sliders will not work for the more well endowed and the piece has not been actually configured for women.  This is part of the note from the designer – We’ve only included female sizes for those who would like to pull off a certain look for our own friends.

Dance With Me?

Dance With Me

Hello Fabulouses!  Stan and I teamed up to do some hunting along the Candy Cane 10 Hunt trail and found a really cute matchy-matchy prize over at MishMash Fusion.  We just had to celebrate by teleporting off to the Let it Snow sim for a romantic dance.  I really love the red candy cane stripes on both my dress and Stan’s vest.  They are just so bright and cheerful!  If you are looking for a coordinated outfit to wear with your significant other to a holiday party, this might be just up your alley!

On Her:  The Sweetest Frock

My Rocketpop Dress offers a full skirt for elegant swirls on the dance floor as well as halter style neck straps that are reminiscent of holiday ribbons.  Cherry colored buttons, a red sash around the waist and a red and white hemline complete the look.  The package includes versions for mesh avatars as well as sizes for classic avatars, so you’re sure to find the perfect fit for you.  Since all you need to invest to pick up this party frock is a bit of time searching and two little Linden dollars, you’ll look like you spent a bundle, but will have plenty left in the coffers for all your holiday shopping.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

On Him:  A Dapper Suit

Stan’s Etienne Suit features a red shirt, white tie, striped vest and an elegant white color scheme.  The touches of crimson provide the perfect coordination with the Rocketpop dress without looking too overdone.  All the pieces are worn at once, so there is no fussing around trying to get the different elements to fit together.  With one click, you’ll be ready to sweep her off her feet.  Just like Kat’s prize, the package includes versions for Classic as well as a variety of mesh body styles, all for just two Linden dollars (and a bit of searching time).

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We’re off to see what else we can discover as we continue down the hunt path.  The event lasts until December 25th and features stops at a variety of stores.  The pupster is hoping maybe there will be a box of Ripley snacks hidden somewhere along the way.  Luckily, I have a freshly baked batch waiting at home.  Until my next post, happy hunting!
