Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/16/2018 – La Bella Boutique

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in a previous Designer of the Week type post, we’ve been adding some new members to our Fabulous Designers team. This week I’m happy to share with you La Bella Boutique. Just as the name might suggest, this shop has girly-girl written all over it. La Bella Boutique is self described as an “everything shapes and couture store.” Which I feel is an accurate description. There does seem to be an eclectic mix of everything from casual tops and dresses to evening wear and even some tattoos. Most (if not all) clothing items did appear to be mesh, with of course applier tattoos. The store is also quite girlishly decorated for Christmas, it’s a virtual pink winter wonderland complete with a menagerie of fantasy and woodland creatures frolicking around a giant pink Christmas tree. To me this just adds to the shopping experience in a fun way. Along with all the fabulous finds, there are quite a few opportunities at La Bella Boutique to score some free goodies.

Like many shops this time of year, La Bella Boutique does have an Advent calendar. It is for the La Bella Boutique group only, however the group is free to join. I’m not positive if past gifts are available or not, but even so there are still quite a few days left on this 24 day Advent calendar. Speaking of group gifts, there are tons and tons and tons and oh my so many La Bella Boutique group gifts available. The top photo in the above collage shows the row after row of La Bella Boutique group gifts. Additionally, there are several group only Lucky Letter chairs. Finally, there are the store’s associated group gifts for members of other groups like Fabulously Free in SL. The Fab Free gift is of course free, and if you’re not already a Fab Free group member the group is free to join also. I hope you enjoy what is left of this Fabulous weekend. Happy Shopping! Also, before I forget, as you can see in the top photo, La Bella Boutique is looking for female bloggers. If you’ve got your own blog and are interested, there’s a blogotex inside the shop where you can fill out an application. Good luck!

Festive Fashion and Holiday Treats

Holiday Goodies

Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Oh My Goodness! This December really is the month that just keeps on giving. It’s almost impossible to keep up with all the gifts, hunts, sales, and advents happening. Speaking of sales, the Cart Sale has started at The Wash sim. For all the details about this season’s Cart Sale, check out the announcement post Love did here.  For this post I’m happy to share with you one of the Cart Sale items by CroM. I also picked up a couple of holiday goodies at Sam’s Nails. Keep reading for all the info.

The Sweater Dress – This sweet little sweater dress is one of the 10 linden items by CroM at The Cart Sale. It is super cute on and comes in several sizes. You won’t want to miss this perfect for the holiday season sweater and all the other inexpensive finds at the CroM booth at The Cart Sale. Not into red, no worries, the dress has a color change hud with an equally cute and festive green option.  Also, this sweater dress includes an alpha layer and sizes suitable for classic non-mesh avatars!
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Holiday Goodies – Just on a whim I stopped by a little shop called Sam’s Nails. I’m certainly glad I did, not only are they having 12 days of advent gifts, there are several group gifts available. This hold-able mug full of holiday cheer is one of the several current group gifts. Also, the gingerbread man with his own hold animation is the Day 13 Advent gift at Sam’s Nails. What I like about these is the hold animation is set with a high priority so it should work with most Animation Overrides.  Both the advent gifts, and the group gifts require the Sam’s Nails group tag. There is a join fee of 150 linden. Also, the previous day’s Advent gifts are still available for free with the group tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Take Your Shirt Off

FabFree: Take Your Shirt Off (1 of 2)

Happy Monday Fabulouses!  Have you been hitting the group Advent at Vanilla Bae?  It’s a stop I have been making every day since December 1st because the gifts have been amazing!  I have received all kinds of holiday themed original mesh wearables such as skirts, tops, pjs, socks, leg chains.  The group fee is 199L, but the gifts have been way worth it so far, and there are 14 days left to Advent!  I also want to share news today about Navy & Copper’s gacha offering at Epiphany!  I hope you have a coffee and a comfy seat…  I’m feeling chatty today!

Going Back A Few Days…

On Day 7 at Vanilla Bae, I got this strippable Maitreya fitted Annie Sweater that includes a texture change HUD with three cozy prints that I am in love with.  (Thank goodness it wasn’t Seven Swans A Swimming).  Yes… I know Day 7 is long over, and its no longer available for free, but I wanted to share news with you that group members can purchase these items afterwards too if they are missed for a fair price.

What is this strip feature you speak of, Love?

Some of you will be excited by the strip feature, and some might shy away thinking these items won’t be wearable on a day to day basis, BUT… THEY ARE!  With the easy to control menu, you control the level of “strippiness”.  You can even choose to give control over to a master or set it to auto strip.  Don’t worry if you set it up the wrong way the first time (like I did…), a good friend of mine (TY ALINE), showed me the reset button fixes everything!  Wanna see me strip?

 

FabFree:  Take Your Shirt Off (2 of 2 - Video:  See how the Vanilla Bae strip feature works!)

Aww..  you didn’t think it was going to be a naughty video did you?  What kind of a blog do you think we are? 🙂

Anne, Ann, Anna

At this December round of Epiphany, Navy & Copper’s gacha set is the Anne, Ann, Anna Hair and if you like long straight styles – this one is for you!  I’m wearing #11 which is Anna Blonde.  It’s great when you can get wearable colours as commons and for just 75L per play!!

Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/07/2018 – KingbalStores

Hey There Fab Free’rs! It’s time for another Fab Free Designer of the Week post. I’m happy to say we’ve added a few new designers to our roster, which is of course Fantastc! This post is all about KingbalStores. At this clothing shop you’ll find mesh and applier clothing for both male and female avatars. You read that right, this one has something for the guys too! There is a wide range of casual and semi formal clothing to be found, though I’d say most of the clothing available leans toward casual every-day styles.

At the center of the KingbalStores shop is the “circulation” desk, as I like to call them. This is where you will find all the store information and info about things like events. Additionally there is a slew of store group and associated group gifts. This is also where you’ll find the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by KingbalStores. It’s a little blue polka-dot bikini for everyone experiencing warm weather rather than cold at the moment! If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, the group is free to join. Also there is a December Advent gift calendar up at KingbalStores that is free for everyone to participate. Just click the box with the number for the date and you’ll be sent a free gift.  Finally you’ll notice several holiday themed outfits and clothing items around the Advent calendar. Each of these fun festive items appear to be priced between 75 and 100 lindens. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

It's December... Eat all the cookies you want!

Good morning Fabulouses!  I tried so hard to get this post up last night before the Day 4 of Advents was over because in this post I am showing you a really cute dress that I picked up  yesterday in one of the calendars, however I just couldn’t get it together last night.  Have no fear – because if you missed it, you can pick it up for just 25L today!

Adventing At WellMade!

On day 4 of the Advent Calendar at WellMade, I picked up the Mackayla Dress you see me wearing today for free with my free group tag activated!  There are group gifts every day in the calendar up to the 24th, and they have all been really nice things.  The Mackayla Dress is strapless and comes with a texture change HUD offering a red and green option and comes in several mesh fits as listed below.  While you are picking up this sweet dress at WellMade, make sure you grab today’s free advent gift – which is a super cute off the shoulder sweater!  I have added on the Black Fur Jacket whichis priced very affordably (140L) at Petite Mort.

December in the Big Apple

December in the Big Apple

It’s December, and all I can think about is New York City.  A few years ago, I made my way to the Big Apple and had the most New York day I can possibly imagine.  I saw Tony Bennett getting out of a cab near Central Park, had a bite to eat in the Plaza hotel and even got mauled by well-dressed women in a shoe sale in Bergdorf Goodman.  All the while, I was surrounded by twinkling lights and sparkling snow.  I’m sure this is a glamourized version of what life is really like in NYC, but hey – from the outside looking in, it’s just a gorgeous little snow globe!

Central Park

I’m hanging out in Central Park today, though it’s possibly a bit chilly for my outfit.  Whatever, the excitement of the city is keeping me toasty!  I got my top and skirt over at the LANA mainstore.  Under the tree there, they’re adding a new gift every two days for group members!  If you want to grab some, just join the LANA group for 99 Lindens!  Yay!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass

Shoe Sale?

Speaking of shoes and such, I got my cute little booties and socks over at Mosquito’s Way!  This month’s group gift is perfect for taking a stroll in Central Park and keeping your tootsies warm.  You can grab your own pair by joining the Mosquito’s Way group for free!  Woohoo!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Right, I’m off for a stroll down 5th Avenue!

Fields of Gold

Fields of Gold

I’m dreaming about the South of France again… Those enormous sunflower fields that are bordered by something wonderful (usually a field of lavender), and contain one solitary olive tree.  I’ve closed my eyes just so I can hear the sound of the cicadas, and smell the wild herbs growing all about.  And, oh how hot it is.  But just the right kind of hot… Maybe it’s time for a real life trip back to Provence!  Hmmm…

The Advent

Though I’m thinking about summer, and feeling the warmth of it all around me, my mind is firmly planted on the season of Advent.  Why you ask?  Because Applique Chic have an Advent calendar going for July!  Yep – every day a new FREE gift!  And if you miss a day?  No biggie, just head back over there and pay 10L for anything you missed.  It’s a steal!  The offering for Day 6 is this beautiful graphic sundress that put me in the mood for getting lost among the flowers.  Head over to Applique Chic to grab your own!

Sizes

  • Ocacin
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Bon Weekend, mes amis!
