Fab Free Designer Friday – 09/08/2017 – Eloise Baker

Eloise Baker Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I am again excited to share with you this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. This post features a women’s clothing and accessories shop called Eloise Baker. I love small quaint shops. Eloise Baker is a small but very charming shop with the look and feel of a boutique clothing store. The shop is self described as “A unique shop with vintage clothing and accessories for women…” I personally could not describe the look and style of this brand better than than that. Most of the items I saw at Eloise Baker looked very feminine and elegant. Even the vintage inspired decor added to the boutique-like atmosphere.Eloise Baker Gifts
As you enter the Eloise Baker shop, you’ll see a small fireplace with a large box in front. This pretty gift box is a FREEBIE at Eloise Baker. There’s no need to join a group for this one, just pay the box zero linden and the gift will be delivered to you. Above the fireplace is where you’ll see some of the usual shop information. As you look through the shop you’ll right away spot the colorful Fab Free group joiner posted above the current FREE Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This adorable floral print dress and the FREE to everyone gift dress has been shown on the blog by Astrid here.  As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join if you’re not already a member. Happy shopping Fab Free’rs, enjoy your weekend and this lovely shop!

Sheer Days and Glitter Nights

Snapshot_002

If you are in need of a few sexy cocktail dresses for the month of September, [::FAX::] has you covered (or barely covered in the case of one of the dresses…). One is free and the other will only cost you 10L if you aren’t already a member of the Third Life Group. I think once you see these variations on the “little black dress” you’ll want them both!

Sheer Days!

The September group gift from [::FAX::] is sheer… and absolutely beautiful and pictured above. The [::FAX::] group is free to join making this gorgeous black wrap dress with the slim waistline belt free to pick up. It is sheer lace that somehow manages to give just enough coverage to keep things PG-13 with daisy accents and little rhinestones in the center of the daisies. This is a dress that goes zero to sexy in a nano-second and comes in all your favorite mesh sizes!

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh sizes XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Glitter nights

Right next to the regular [::FAX::] group gift, is their Third Life Group Gift offering. It is just as lovely and is the glitter mini dress in the wrap style pictured above. The picture doesn’t do it justice as it has a lovely shimmery texture that really does seem to glitter.

If you’re not a member of the Third Life Group, the group will only cost you 10L to join, and it gives you access to gifts in stores across the grid, making it well worth the tiny fee. This dress also comes in a variety of sizes to suit your needs!

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh sizes XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Wine Country and a Smoke

Grapes and a smoke_001

Time to use your imagination a moment… I have brought you another roleplay post, courtesy of the Gimme Gacha group which has been incredibly generous with the group gifts at their events lately. This month if you visit the Imaginarium Gacha event with your Gimme Gacha group tag on, you can pick up group gifts from around the event and I am pleased to show off a roleplay look I put together with a few of the free gifts!

Entice me…

I’m used to Entice providing quality outfits, but I think this is the first time I have seen them put out a roleplay gift. I was thrilled with this “Fairy Nightsongs” gift that they had set out for free near their gacha machine. It comes in XXS – L Fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass & Physique and has lots of great details, plus I love that it had the mid-drift showing so that I could show off another gift I found that I really liked…

Blowing in the wind…

Notice my belly tattoo? This tattoo by Fallen Gods (yes they gave another Gimme Gacha free tattoo gift! 😀 is called windy and it is so pretty! It delicately surrounds your belly button and if you look close their is a dandelion in seeded form blowing in the wind. You’ll get system layers and Omega appliers, and the tattoo comes in 3 colors: Black, Gold, and Turquois.

Speaking of wind…

What do you think of my windblown hairstyle? Personally I love it! And it’s the free gift from Love! It’s called Self Entitled and perhaps I felt a little self entitled as I put on the flowing locks. You’re going to get a full free fatpack of hair with this gift by wearing your Gimme Gacha group tag so picking this one up is well worth it!

Have a pipe and some wine…

I took a moment for some special treats from two different vendors. One was Moon_sha who was giving out these Barrels Grapes & Sacs as their group gift. The whole piece comes together as one set and all together is only 1 prim. That’s hard to beat! And it’s free! It makes a great little addition for roleplay furniture (did I mention it’s free?).

Since I was near the makings of wine country, I decided to have a smoke and I fell in love with the gift from Akume Drops — this Japanese Pipe. It is highly detailed an includes a smoking animation (that works great with animation over-rides) as well as a reasonable amount of smoke. The particles are not overdone but are just right to look realistic. Both of these gifts are really nice touches and excellent free roleplay props.

Lots of other things…

There were MANY other gifts at the Imaginarium event. Be sure to stop by and get them all!

Evil Ways

Evil Ways
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. So today I’ve been in a bit of a mood, no real reason, just one of those days. Luckily I was able to channel a little moodiness into the photos I took for this post. I think it worked out well! On a side note, I think I need to add more cute short hairstyles to my inventory. For this post I’m excited to share with you this pretty dress from Entice, and a recent group gift from Asteroid Box.

The Dress

This gorgeous dress is the latest Fab Free exclusive gift at Entice. You may recall Love’s recent announcement post about the new Fabulously Free in SL FREE group gift out at Entice. If not, you can take a look here.  It comes in standard mesh sizes and includes a texture change hud with 3 options. This gold version Pru is wearing is my favorite, however all 3 are really beautiful. Don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. The Fabulously Free in SL group is always FREE to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (L, M, S, XS, XXS)

Gilded Lips

Honestly, I’ve been eyeing this FREE makeup applier gift from Asteroid Box for a few days now. The subtle gold line down the middle of the bottom lip is so pretty. I think it looks both delicate and fierce. One quick observation, because the gold is a pale tone, the applier shows up best with darker lip tones. I originally tried this gold lip line while wearing a very pale skin tone and while the gold could be seen, it was not very noticeable. The Asteroid Box group is FREE to join, and there are a few other cute gifts also available.

Applier Included: Omega

Here are the details, Enjoy!

By the Sea

By the Sea_003

Sometimes I prefer to browse the Marketplace for goodies when I’m in that “stay at home” mood. I found a couple of nice Marketplace gifties that are sure to brighten your day. Once I was ready to explore, I finished off with a group gift from one of my favorite Steampunk stores!

The perfect outfit

In doing a little Marketplace hunting I ran across this ZHO outfit by Petry Shop. It includes a shirt and skirt as separate pieces with nice detailing and great geometric textures! For only 20L, I snapped it up and didn’t have to leave my linden home. 🙂

Outfit sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Strike a pose

I also picked up a gift pose from a little Marketplace store called Naomi Shop. This pose, called Naomi Gift Pose, is perfect for photography, and is just 10 little linden. If you take pictures in Second Life, you’ll want to add it to your inventory!

My pretty seahorse necklace is a free group gift by Pixel Box. You join the Pixel Box group free, don your new group tag, and pick up this pretty necklace. It includes a texture change hud, which I’ve included a picture of below so you can see the variety of choices you have!

As an extra special touch, the necklace is mesh body sized, and includes sizes to fit the following mesh body types: TMP, eBody, Maitreya, Eve (Slim & Pulpy), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus), Slink (Hourglass & Physique), and Tonic.

“Bee” Beautiful

Flowers and the Bees_002

“Be” Beautiful!

I love the message on the group gift I found for you today! “Be your own kind of beautiful” is just the kind of message we all need to hear now and then as a lovely reminder 🙂

I picked up this pretty dress at GeMyles as a Fitmesh Fantatics Group Gift. You just need to be a member of the Fitmesh Fantatics Group (the group is free to join) and stop by the GeMyles main-store to nab up this pretty dress for free! It comes in fitmesh sizes XS – XL.

Flowers and the Bees_001

More “Bees” please!

Not only are we “Being” beautiful but I have a “bee” and flower gift to show off that is simply stunning! I showed you the latest Meva group gift in my post here and mentioned that there were 9 total group gifts out to be had. I wanted to show off some of the others and decided that this beautiful bento ring set was perfect with my outfit!

These rings are made to fit bento Maitreya hands and you get a Daisy and a Bee for your right and left hands. The group is 100L to join, but remember, there are currently 9 group gifts out to be had for your join fee!
