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!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/29/2018 – Artizana

Hello Fab Free’rs, and happy weekend! I am excited to share with you another designer of the week, Artizana. Seriously, how pretty is the photo of the Artizana exterior and the front desk?! I have to tell you, the grounds surrounding the Artizana store are as equally worth exploring as the shop itself. The interior reminds me of the art nouveau style. Artizana is self described as a fashion house established in 2007 with fashion for both men and women. Yes, you read that right, there is menswear at Artizana.  Their unique style is inspired by African culture, so expect to see lots of vivid prints and vibrant colors.

Artizana’s in-world group has a one time join fee of 99 linden. If you shop with your Artizana group tag, you’ll get a 5% discount on purchases. Also there are quite a few Artizana VIP gifts, including one men’s semi-formal outfit. Each of the items pictured above is a free VIP group gift. In the same area of the store you’ll also find a few lucky letter chairs, and additional gifts for other store associated groups.

As you can see there are quite a few gift items to be had at Artizana. In this area is also of course where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to all Fab Free group members. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free group tag to claim this gift. If you’re not already a Fabulously Free in SL group member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always free to join. Kat did a beautiful job of showing of the Fab Free gift from Artizana in her post “Beautiful Blue.”

Fab Free Designer of the Day – 09/22/2018 – The Beautiful Ones

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs and welcome back to the blog! I’m glad you’re here, and always happy to be here myself. This week’s edition of Designer of the Week is all about The Beautiful Ones. I know that sounds like you guys, doesn’t it?! Really though, The Beautiful Ones is a ladies clothing brand that has been an established part of Second Life for quite some time now. I would describe their style of clothing as cute, casual, and relate-able. You will find some dressier items, but most of the clothes are the everyday type. Cute outfits and dresses you’d want to wear often.

One of the things that stands out about The Beautiful Ones for me, are their gifts. You can almost always guarantee that a TBO gift will be in their “signature” shade of dark teal blue. Right now there are two The Beautiful Ones store group gifts in the before mentioned shade of teal. The TBO group is currently just 25 linden to join. There are also two Midnight Madness boards, one requires The Beautiful Ones group tag, and the other is open for everyone (no tag needed). Lastly, but never least, there is a table with a hand-full of gifts. I think you’ll notice right away the colorful Fabulously Free in SL group joiner on the wall. You guessed it, these gifts are the gifts by The Beautiful Ones for other store-associated groups like Fab Free. You may even recall this post by Nevi in which she features the current TBO gift for Fab Free group members. Not yet a member of the Fab Free in world group? Have no fear, the Fabulously Free in SL group is always free to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/16/2018 – Chaotic!

Hello hello Fab Free! Remember when I said recently I wasn’t ready for the weekend. That was an understatement. Now I am not ready for it to end! Either way, here we are, and I’m glad for it. This week’s Designer of the Week is Chaotic!. Let me just start by saying this store is larger than it looks! The Chaotic! shop is a ladies clothing boutique. Among the pink flowers, unicorns, and bright pink, green, and black decor you’ll find a truly eclectic mix of casual and what I would call “club wear” clothing. Much of what I saw did appear to be mesh and come in quite a few body specific sizes. If you’re looking for something casual but with a little bit of sass and sexiness, Chaotic! just might have what you’re looking for. There are also quite a few opportunities to score some free or heavily discounted items, which of course we love!

While you’re shopping keep an eye out for the Discount Roulette boards. I spotted three, but I could have missed one. The Discount Roulette works so that you pay full price for the featured item, and then are automatically refunded a random portion for a special discount. You might even get the item for free! I also spotted two Midnight Mania board with very low targets. One is for everyone, no group needed, and the other is for Chaotic! group members only. Don’t fret, the Chaotic! group is free to join. There are also lucky letter boards, and an entire section of group gifts. The group gift section has gifts for various store associated groups. This is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to Fab Free group members. Don’t for get that Fab Free group tag! All in all, there is plenty to make Chaotic! a unique and fun shopping experience!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 09/07/2018 – Fatal Fashion

Happy Friday Fab Free! This week’s Designer Friday post is all about Fatal Fashion. While the shop does cater mostly to the ladies, I think it’s important to tell you right away that there is a small section of casual menswear on the second floor. Sorry it isn’t more gentlemen, but something is better than nothing, am I right?! haha I’d say that most of the clothing at Fatal Fashion leans toward being casual, whether it is for the men or the ladies. You can also find a small section of shoes on the second floor near the menswear. I also spotted mesh clothing as well as a few applier items, so there is fashion suitable for classic avatars. One of the best things however is the teleporter sitting outside the main entrance. I love that you can simply teleport to whatever section of the store interests you the most.

If you’re interested in group gifts, you’ll want to head to the back of the store, just to the right of the center staircase. There’s a good sized wall of various group gifts including the Fatal Fashion store group gift, and the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You may recall the Fatal Fashion gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members from Nevi’s post “Just a Beautiful Day.” Both the Fatal Fashion store group, and the Fab Free group are free to join.

While you’re there, it’s definitely worth venturing to the second floor of Fatal Fashion, even if you’re not looking for the men’s department. Most, if not all, of the clothing on the second floor appeared to be marked at 50 lindens or less. Don’t quote me on that, I didn’t check every tag! However, there are quite a few mesh and applier items for sale at bargain prices. Also on the second floor is a pair of Lucky Letter chairs. There’s one for the ladies and one for the gents. These chairs do require a group tag. You’ll need to join the Glow Events group. Not to worry, the Glow Events group is also free to join and there is a group joiner just above the Lucky Letter chairs. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/01/2018 – Dream Couture

Hello and Happy First day of September Fab Free’rs! This week’s Designer of the Week is Dream Couture. I’m sure you’re wondering why the photo with the pretty fairy grass and the whimsical tree, don’t worry I’ll get to that. First, Dream Couture is a ladies clothing store. The shop is small but has a nice range of items from casual tops to slightly formal dresses. I’d say the style was cute and feminine. The Dream Couture shop is set up in a way that it doesn’t really have a visible exterior. That said, there are two bay windows, each with this cute tree window display. The fun part is there is a pose stand in front of each of the windows. You could take a few cute selfies if you were so inclined!

Also, if you’ve never been to Dream Couture, now is the perfect time to check them out. They are having a Clearance Sale and all the items in the shop are marked down to 30 lindens. Yes, you read that right, 30 linden! I think I might have even seen a few items marked lower than 30 lindens, but don’t hold me to that! Also, it’s a great time to pick up Dream Couture’s exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You may recall this casual red dress from Nevi’s post “Field of Many Colors.” All you need to do is wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor. So take a little time out of the weekend, and head over to Dream Couture for the amazing sale and fabulous Fab Free gift.  I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend, happy shopping!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/18/2018 – B’s 25!

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend so far. This week I get to talk with you a little shop called B’s 25!. Once again I find myself using the word “eclectic” to describe the fabulous products a store has to offer. B’s 25! has probably the most eclectic mix of items I’ve come across. This cute shop also happens to be located on The Wash sim, which is in my opinion a bonus, but of course I’m biased.

At B’s 25! you’ll find a few ladies clothing items, accessories, decor items, and one or two small furniture pieces. Shopping at B’s 25! is definitely a unique experience. Most of the items are on the first floor, however you can take a teleport  If you’re looking for the gifts and free goodies, look no further than the purple desk at the far end of the room. There are a few small purple gift sacks waiting there for B’s 25! group members. The B’s 25! group is free to join. Also, don’t forget to put on your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and pick up your Fab Free group gift from B’s 25!. It would be a shame to miss out on this spooky cool jewelry set. As always, the Fabulously Free in SL group is free to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/04/2018 – Baci

Baci Exterior
Sweet merciful everything it’s the weekend! What a week! I’m happy you’re here Fab Free’rs, and clearly happy for the weekend. This week I get to share with you Baci. This sweet shop reminds me of those swanky boudoir boutique style shops. It is a ladies clothing store where you’ll find lots of feminine sexy dresses and lacy underthings. Baci is a small enough shop that it’s quite easy to navigate, but large enough that there’s plenty to look at. There are also quite a few dollarbies and gifts to be had, which of course we love!

Just as you enter Baci, you’ll see a couple of dollarbies to the right, along with two group gifts. These gifts, such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift, require a specific group tag. The dollarbies are just 1 linden each, no group needed. I even picked up the dollarbie Omega applier tan lines myself!  Also, you may recall the cute little Fab Free group gift dress by Baci from Nevi’s post “Dreaming of Yesterday.” To the left, there’s another dollarbie (it appears to be a rez day gift) that is also available to everyone.

If you follow the walkway to the right and go all the way, you’ll find the wall of Baci store group gifts. There are several dresses, and some pretty lingerie gifts. The Baci store group is just 1 linden to join at this time. You can get a quick glance at these gifts in the lower right photo above. Finally, there are several Baci group-only Lucky Letter boards directly across from the Baci store group gifts. My apologies, I didn’t get a photo of the Lucky Letter boards. Happy Shopping Fab Free! I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/27/2018 – Uncharted

Uncharted Exterior
Hi There Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, well you know how I do. I should just be honest and say “It’s almost Saturday!” haha The point is I’m happy to be here and to have you here reading this week’s Designer Friday post. This week is all about one of the more recent additions to our Fab Free designer family, Uncharted. Let me tell you, if you’re in need of some summer attire, this is a good place to start your shopping. The best way I can think of to describe the style of ladies clothing at Uncharted is mostly casual warm weather clothing. I saw short shorts, cropped tops, cute little dresses, and the like.
Uncharted Gifts
Speaking of cropped tops, there is a current Uncharted store group gift crop top available. It requires you to join the free-to-join E\M Events group to get the gift. You’ll notice right away that Uncharted is a fairly small shop, and everything is clearly labeled. I always love it when things are easy to locate in any store, big or small. For more group gifts head to the back of the shop under the big “Sponsor Gifts” sign. Each of the groups under this sign has a gift specific to that group. This is where you can pick up the Uncharted Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Nevi showed of this swanky red dress in her post “Simply Red.” To get your copy of this free gift, wear your Fab Free group tag and click the Fab Free sign. Also, Uncharted is having a big sale. On the same wall as the Fab Free and other group gifts, there are quite a few items marked down to just 50 linden each. All these gifts, and a sale too, sounds like the perfect way to beef up your summer wardrobe! Happy Shopping!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/20/2018 – ALB

ALB Exterior
If you’ve never been to ALB (AnaLee Balut) you should go, even if only to see the store. It’s a unique Arabian themed desert oasis. Walking through the store in places is reminiscent of a street bazaar. The main part of the store is several stories, so there’s plenty to explore. At ALB you’ll find mostly ladies clothing, though there is a random mens item here and there. The style at ALB is a little harder to pinpoint! Eclectic is a good word to start with. There is everything from shoes and accessories, to lingerie and ballgowns. You’ll also find fantasy inspired clothing, fashion inspired by history, and even some of what I would call Gorean clothing. As I mentioned, there’s a lot to be had!
ALB Fab Gift
Probably one of the most notable things about the ALB main store is the large camel statue in the center of the main floor. In this same area you’ll quickly be able to spot the ALB gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This gift is free and exclusive to Fabulously Free in SL group members, so don’t forget to wear your group tag! There are two additional group gifts on the same column as the Fab Free gift. Each requires a separate group tag.ALB Gifts & Wearable Demos

As you browse through the vastness at ALB you’ll note that some items have floating text that may say “group gift” or simply “enjoy” among other things. These items are usually group gifts you can purchase for free while wearing your store group tag. The store group is LAMU and it has a one time join fee of 250 linden. Another unique aspect to shopping at ALB are their “wearable demos.” These items often have floating text as well that will say “demo” or something similar. These wearable demos are often free but sometimes cost between 0 and 10 linden. I spotted both group gifts and wearable demos throughout all the floors of the ALB store. The above photos are of a few but I am certain not all of these gift types just to give you an idea of the genuinely wide range of items. Happy shopping Fab Free, and have a wonderful weekend.
