Hello there Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve had a marvelous week and a very happy Friday. I’m excited about this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday featuring Belle Epoque! If you’ve never visited Belle Epoque before, you must go. The clothing style is very unique. I think of it as softly feminine with a little bit of fantasy and some definite vintage flair. I spotted everything from casual dresses to elegant gowns. Along with a variety of women’s clothing, there is a whole room of gachas to discover. As you enter the Belle Epoque main location from the beautifully landscaped entrance, you’ll be greeted with the usual information desk. Directly to the left is where you’ll find the Belle Epoque group gifts.
There are two FREE Belle Epoque group gifts. The Belle Epoque group is FREE to join as well. A bit further to the left, you’ll see the Fab Free exclusive group gift, and a gift for Teleport Hub group members. As always the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. You may recall Edi had previously blogged the exclusive FREE gift for Fab Free group members in her post “Ice Dreams.” Don’t miss out on the opportunity to pick up these lovely gifts, and explore a shop with truly unique style!
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.
While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! This week I have the pleasure of sharing with you another of the Fabulous designers, Sevyn East. I personally only discovered Sevyn East for myself about a year ago I’d say. I wish I’d discovered their sassy feminine fashion style sooner. The shop specializes women’s clothing and accessories with a sexy but casual style. Right now the Sevyn East store group is FREE to join. This means you can join the group and pick up the 3 currently available Sevyn East group gifts for FREE!
As you stroll through the garden at the Sevyn East landing point and enter the main store, you’ll find the usual wall of hunt and store affiliation information to the left. This is where you’ll also find the Sevyn East group gifts, and the current event exclusives. Also, you can get your copy of the FREE Fabulously Free in SL group exclusive gift in that same area. If you missed it, Love did a gorgeous post showing this FREE gift titled “No Ride“. Don’t forget you’ll need to wear the Fab Free group tag for this gift. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. If you haven’t already, add Sevyn East to your weekend shopping spots, you won’t be disappointed!
I hope you’ve all enjoyed your Friday thus far. Today’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday focuses on a whimsical shop called Aphrodite. This playful shop centers around cute furniture, seasonal items, decor, and landscaping materials. The Aphrodite Shop is nicely decorated and landscaped, so in addition to any shopping, it’s a pretty spot to look around. At the landing point is where you’ll find the wall of event and group affiliation information.
There are several gifts and offers on this wall, including the Fab Free Exclusive group gift. Serena showed the FREE box of valentines sweets gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members in her post “Home Alone.” To get your copy, don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Be sure to check out the other offers on this wall as well. Just across from the wall with gifts is where you’ll find the Aphrodite Shop gift cards, flickr, Facebook, and subscriber kiosk. You can also join the in world group for just 99 lindens and be rewarded with occasional gifts, discounts, and exclusives. For a little instant gratification, join the Aphrodite Shop subscriber group and be instantly gifted a nice wooden drink cart for your home, no fees. Between the decorative items, seasonal decor, landscaping, and furniture, it won’t be hard to find something you want or need for your personal space, or you can just bring your significant other or your best friend and enjoy the scenery.
Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has enjoyed the start of the weekend so far. I know I am. For those that celebrating the Easter holiday, happy Easter just in case I don’t “see” you again before then! Thanks for coming by, this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday is a little shop called No Cabide. The first time I recall having encountered No Cabide is at one of the annual Cart Sales at The Wash. It’s another one of those great shops that had grown by leaps and bounds.
No Cabide sells a wide variety of casual mesh and applier women’s clothing and shoes. I would describe the style of the clothing as both sexy and casual. Just inside the entrance you’ll find the “circulation” desk and the most recent new releases. If you venture to the right and look for some shiny heart shaped balloons you’ll find a wall of gorgeous group gifts. This is also where the pretty dress No Cabide has out as their FREE exclusive Fab Free group gift can be found. You may remember seeing it in Serena’s post “ It’s Friday I’m in Love.” Of course there are several other group gifts, including a few for the FREE to join No Cabide group. Also, while you’re shopping you might spot a few piles of pretty Easter eggs scattered about. Don’t mistake those for simple decor, these eggs are priced between 1 and 15 lindens each and contain cute holiday themed clothing items. Happy Shopping Fab Free!
Something worth celebrating.
Paisley Daisy has a beautiful January group gift out for the ladies… a purple celebration suit! And I couldn’t pass it up. This one piece dress suit in all the standard sizes (with an excellent alpha layer if you’re still using your system body) is pure magic. It is highly detailed and the texture is amazing, with a shimmer and glimmer that is simply unique and beautiful. The Paisley Daisy group fee is 100L, but you’ll get amazing monthly group gifts just like this one to add to your wardrobe, making it well worth the Linden in my opinion.
What’s on the shelf?
I decided to do a little decorating this morning and was pleased to make away with a free shelf from Cwtch! They have out their Calon Lan Shelf & Decor (it’s all one piece) free for FabFree group members. Just wear your FabFree group tag and pick up this lovely gift.
The shelf is only 4 prim total and includes everything you see in the picture. My head is hiding the two of the lovely picture frames (there are 3 total) that allow you to add your own textures/pictures to them just by dragging and dropping pictures from your inventory to the frame. It was easy peasy! This lovely shelf will be a welcome (free) addition to your home!

I have some bad news for us today. Ms.B’s Designs will be closing it’s doors in world. But, happily, it will remain on the Marketplace. All the clothing and poses are now 50% off which is a real bargain for the quality of the items you’ll find at Ms. B’s Design. I picked up the ‘Lovely Luna’ top I’m showing you for just 49L. The past gifts are available for 10L and there are still several free ‘no group needed gifts set out as well. And there’s a wall of men’s outfits for the gentlemen too. Ms. B hasn’t said when she will complately close the store so if you want to drop in you need to hurry.
I hate to see Ms B’s Design close down, it’s always been a bright spot in my Second Life. But it sounds like Ms.B’s real life is taking off in a wonderful direction. We wish you all the best, Ms. B!

I was interested to discover that the name “Fiama” seems to most likely come from an Italian word meaning flame or blaze… which would be an apt name for this hot little number called Fiama that I’m sporting today. I picked this up from the Underground Wear at the Cart Wash Sale for only 10L.
It’s hard to believe but your 10L gets you this entire outfit — dress, leggings, boots, jewelry, and a pair of sunglasses I’m not showing. It comes in mesh in all the standard sizes and has that business (or hot librarian look) that was just too keen to pass up! I had to nab it!

This is gonna be a fast one, my dears! It has to be quick because if you want these items you’ll need to hurry hurry hurry. First is This gorgeous gown from Dulce Secrets. This is half of their Peace on Earth Hunt prize. The other half is a lovely winter makeup plus eyes. The unusual sleeves are a separate piece so you can wear the gown with or without them. I like the princess look of the sleeves, personally.
Dulce Secrets isn’t done yet. These wild violet eyes are the ‘Day 1’ gift under the tree in their “12 Days of Christmas” event. There are 13 gifts under the tree and each one is only 1L! The skin I’m showing is also a “12 Days” gift, – Felicity in Sugar. You also get two other shades in the gift plus Slink appliers.
Like I said, you need to hurry! Dulce Secrets 12 Days of Christmas event ends on January 4th and the Peace on Earth Hunt ends January 6th. Don’t miss out on these great items!

Hello Fabulouses!! I’m sure you have all been to this Wash Cart Sale, already, but jic you haven’t, or in case you have been putting it off, what are you waiting for? There is not a whole lot of time left you know 😛 So, to help motivate you, I have another cart to show you.
This time it is the !Lyrical B!zarre Templates! cart. Yes, I said templates, so if any of you Fabbie readers are considering dabbling in making clothes, all the items on !Lyrical B!zarre’s cart are full perm so you can retexture and then sell to your hearts content, just make sure to read the terms of service notecard included. The lovely dress I am wearing is the !Lyrical B!zarre Templates! – Flimsy – Dress, which is mesh, and comes in standard sizes XXS-L. Now, even if you aren’t into playing around with texturing clothing, as you can see, the dress is adorable, and ready to wear out of the box. I am just in love with the texture and colours! Yayyyy for bright colours. Of course, like everything that is being sold at the Wash Cart Sale, this dress, and every other item on this cart, is only L$10.
Now, sometimes, when wearing bright clothing, I do feel the need to throw in something with a more subtle tone. The Miss LT Aestrela freegift mesh heels for SLINK HIGH FEET fits that bill perfectly. They have a nice shine to them, and are still elegant without being super flashy. Best of all…they are the current free group gift! Oh, and the group is free to join, so it’s like a double whammy of free!
The bracelets I am wearing are a Marketplace find. A friend of mine actually shared the link with me after she went searching for some jelly bracelets to wear. They are part of the *MM* Rainbow Rave Bracelets from Miam Miam Jewlery., that are only L$10 for the set. You actually get 3 bracelets when you buy this set, but I am only showing you the multi bracelet. The other 2 are band-style bracelets. The really great thing about these is that they are editable, meaning you can change the colours, as I did, to match your outfit.
Oh, and before I forget, below is a shot of the !Lyrical B!zarre Templates! Cart so you can see the other items they have available.
Ok, that bar behind me is calling my name, saying “Calle…come get a mai tai from me”, and I think that sounds like a fine idea! Good night all, until next time, TTFN *waves*
