Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/14/2017 – Nala Designs

Nala Designs
Happy Fri-Yay Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you but I am so glad the weekend is here. It’s been along week and I am ready to relax a little bit. I also am in need of some freebie retail therapy. Thankfully I have the pleasure of sharing with you Nala Designs for this weeks edition Fab Free Designer Friday. There are many opportunities at Nala Designs for FREE and inexpensive items. The above photo is of the Nala Designs front desk. Here is where you can join the Nala Designs group and you’ll want to check out the little pink gift box. It’s a 5 linden gift. Most of the Nala Designs items are mesh trendy casual women’s clothing items in great colors and patterns. Additionally there are a few formal gowns and dresses, and I even spotted a men’s formal suit. There’s also a lingerie department on the second floor.
Nala Downstairs
The Nala Designs group is just 50 linden to join. Directly to the right of the desk you’ll see the wall of information. Check out that information space for info on hunts, events, and other group affiliations. To the left of the front desk you’ll see two discount vendors next to a pretty mirror. You can score two 50L items there. Also, the mirror will let you teleport to a discount area. As you travel through the store toward the back of the first floor, you’ll find the FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift. This is for Fabulously Free in SL group members only, so don’t forget your Fab Free tag! If you’re not already a member of the Fab Free group, it’s always FREE to join.  At the very back of the store you’ll also see a Midnight Mania board, and a Night Prize Board. I was able to join the Night Prize board without a group tag. Also while you’re exploring the first floor, keep your eye out for a round side table with a little blue gift package. There you’ll find a 10 linden swimsuit, it’s on the right side of the main floor. As if these great gifts and discounts were not awesome enough, there’s more to be found upstairs.
Nala Upstairs
Once you’re upstairs, you’ll find two additional group gifts for other groups among the regular store vendors. The upstairs is also where the Nala Designs group only Lucky Letter boards can be found. You will need to be sure to wear the Nala Designs group tag to participate in the Lucky Boards. Needless to say there are plenty of Fabulous reasons for you to visit Nala Designs. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/07/2017 – The Man Cave

The Man Cave
It’s FriYay and I’m ready to sing! Okay maybe no singing, but I am definitely excited to be here. Today’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about The Man Cave. Yep, a store for the guys, that has to be exciting. I know it doesn’t happen as often as we would like. The Man Cave has mostly casual menswear including some shoes and accessories. It would be a great spot to pick up everyday attire. The layout of the shop is fairly strait forward, new releases to the left as you enter the store, and little foot prints on the the floor leading you to a few bargains at the back of the store. Wouldn’t it be great if all shops were so easy to get around?!
The Man Cave Gifts & Offers
At the back of the store is where you’ll find The Man Cave information desk. There you can join the group, and buy gift cards. Along the back wall are where the various bargains and offers are available, including the FREE Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Carson showed this awesome gift in his post “Welcome to Minerva.” The gift includes the hat, sunglasses, and shoes.  Also, in the same area there is a Midnight Madness board with no group required. It has a low target of just 10 people and the current prize is a 100 linden gift card for The Man Cave. So, it’s definitely worth the effort to check out The Man Cave!

EscalateD Info Desk
Happy what’s left of Friday Fab Free’rs! I hope each of you has had a fun day that seemed to get away from you as I did. Even though it’s late in the day, I’m still excited to be here with you for this weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post. Today I get to share with you a cool little hair shop called EscalateD. The quote at the bottom of the Info Desk at EscalateD pretty much says it all. Life is too short for boring hair, especially in Second Life. Sorry gentlemen, this shop currently only has hair for the ladies. The most notable thing for me about the hairstyles aside from the style which is edgy and urban, are the bold bright color options along with rich natural colors. The EscalateD shop its self is small, however there are a lot of styles to choose from. At the landing point in the center of the shop you can find all the usual information. This is also where you’ll see info about current hunts and events, as well as group gifts.

EscalateD GiftsAs you can see in the photo above, there are many opportunities to score very cute FREE hairstyles at EscalateD. There is 1 current and 3 previous EscalateD group gifts currently available. There is also a group only Midnight Mania board. The EscalateD group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. In the same area of the store you’ll also see 4 other gifts including the FREE Fabulously Free exclusive group gift. Like always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. For a closer look at the Fab Free gift at EscalateD, check out Love’s announcement post here. In addition to all the cool group gifts, there is 1 freebie, and 2 non group Lucky Letter boards. You won’t want to miss out on all these amazing offers! Also, check out the weekly sales item next to the info desk, there you’ll find a discounted style each week. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/16/2017 – Marquesse Pret a Porter

MPP Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, and this week I’m happy to share with you a shop that has both male and female clothing designs. This week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Marquesse Pret a Porter. You’ll notice right away as you enter the shop that the store offers clothing for the ladies as well as gentlemen. There’s a wide range of clothing available at Marquesse Pret a Porter. I saw shoes along with casual and formal style clothing.

The circulation desk and wall of information are both in the same location, right as you enter the store. I love it when everything is easy to find and can be seen right away! Most of the shopping is on the main floor, however there are a few items upstairs as well.
MPP Gifts
The circulation desk area is also where you’ll find the Marquesse Pret a Porter group gifts, as well as several group gifts for other affiliated groups such as Fabulously Free in SL. First, the Marquesse Pret a Porter group has a one time join fee of 100 linden. You’ll find there are a few available group gifts located in a row just above the “Gift” marquee on the desk. The additional gifts require other specific group tags. For the exclusive Fab Free group gift, just wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and click the red and green present on the desk. You may recall seeing this gift in Astrid’s post “Waiting is Over-rated…” As always, the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. Oh! Also, before I forget, the Marquesse Pret a Porter group members also have group exclusive Midnight Madness boards and Lucky Chairs.
MPP MM Lucky Chairs
Located at the back of the store, Marquesse Pret a Porter group members can slap one or both Midnight Madness boards, and win prizes from the 5 Lucky Chairs. The MM Boards have one male gift and one female, while the Lucky Chairs have rotating gifts. Happy Shopping guys and gals!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/09/2017 – Costarlos

Costarlos Exterior
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s Friday already? This week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Costarlos. Yep, a menswear designer! You may be thinking this exterior shot of Costarlos looks somewhat familiar. Well that is because the Costarlos shop shares a location with BlackRose. The shops sit across a brick street from each other. I really like this shopping experience because it begins in such a pretty setting. You can even rez a bike for free and enjoy the scenery. As I’ve mentioned, Costarlos is mesh menswear designer. The style is what I would call classic, with a little bit of preppiness (that’s not a word but you get the idea!) and a little bit hipster. You’ll find everything from sports coats to graphic tees. There are even a few accessories upstairs along with a few cool looking flannels that I couldn’t help but notice.
Costarlos Offers & Gifts
The shop is clean and easy to navigate. You’ll notice a purple Fifty-Five Thursday kiosk just as you enter the shop, and three items on the wall that are all priced at 55 lindens currently. I don’t know how long these offers will be available, so don’t hesitate if you see something you like. To the left of the staircase you’ll find the FREE Costarlos Group Gifts and the exclusive Fab Free Group gift. The Costarlos group is FREE to join, as is the Fabulously Free in SL group. Carson showed the Fab Free exclusive gift in his post “Bike Break“.  You can also check out some of Carson’s other posts featuring the still available Costarlos group gifts and offers here, here, and here. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Y&M Shop Desk
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a happy Friday. I can honestly say I think today may have been my longest day of all my days this week. It wasn’t a bad day, just long and productive. In the spirit of productivity, I’m excited to share with you this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post, featuring Y&M Shop. The landing point for Y&M Shop sets you down in a center courtyard of sorts for the store. It’s there that you’ll find most of the information about the current goings on at the shop. In the surrounding corridors you can shop women’s fashion including casual wear, evening wear, and shoes until your pixel heart is content! Speaking of hearts content, there are lots of opportunities for gifts and inexpensive finds, you know for the Fab Free addicted heart in each of us.

YM Shop Gifts
You’ll also see several large Easter eggs scattered around the shop, and a huge poster in the center room of the store detailing what is inside each of the thirty-something eggs. Each egg is just 15 lindens. Also in the same area, you’ll see the colorful Fab Free group joiner. Just under the joiner is As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Right next to the fabulous Fab Free gifts are the Y&M Shop group gifts. There are so many, I didn’t count them, but let’s just say there are enough to do some serious damage to your inventory! The store group does have a one time fee of just 25 lindens to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/26/2017 – Belle Epoque

Belle Epoque Exterior
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.
Belle Epoque 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!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
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.

Adoness Info & Gifts
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.
