Fab Free Designer of the Week – Nuts Inc.


Welcome to the Blog Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re ready for this edition of Fab Free Designer of the Week. This time we have the pleasure of sharing Nuts Inc. with you. This fun little shop has brightly colored fashion for men and women. Yep, you read that right, there’s menswear at Nuts Inc. along with ladieswear. As you enter the store you’ll find the clothing separated by women’s fashion on the left and men’s fashion on the right. The clothing styles range from casual wear to formal, and everything in between. I even spotted a ballgown or two. There is also a second floor at Nuts Inc. with a few seasonal and miscellaneous clothing items.

First however you’ll want to stop by the front desk. There you can find a group gift for guys and one for gals. The Nuts Inc. group has a one time join fee of 15 linden. In addition to the current group gifts, you’ll find a 70 linden promotional offer in the same area of the Nuts Inc. store. Just look for it on the wall opposite the desk. Right next to it you’ll spot the colorful Fab Free logo above the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free tag for this one. If you’re not already a member, you can join for free. As you explore the Nuts Inc. shop be sure to make it to the back of the store. It’s there you’ll find a kiosk with quite a few past group gifts still available. Finally, next to the past group gifts you can also get all the store information such as their Flickr and redeliveries. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Now and WooW

Hey There Fab  Free! It’s time for another edition of Fab Free Designer of the Week. This edition is all about a shop called “Now and WooW.” This little shop is a ladies fashion boutique that carries both mesh and applier clothing as well as shoes. At Now and WooW you’ll find mostly what I would consider club-wear. However there are shoes (as I mentioned before), some casual streetwear looks, a little bit of lingerie, and even a few hairstyles. It is definitely a little bit of everything, so there’s bound to be something for almost everyone. Sorry guys!

As you enter the Now and WooW shop you’ll see the information desk right away. In this area you can join the in-world group, which is free to join. There’s even a cool studded pair of free group gift high heeled shoes waiting for you next to the desk. Also on the wall next to the desk are the posters for the store associated groups and events. In this area of the Now and WooW store is where you can pick up your free Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free group tag. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, have no fear, the Fab Free group is free to join also. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

The Mangula and E.Vary brands are created by the same designer. The E.Vary shop offers a range of skins, shapes, and cosmetic enhancements for female avatars along with a few mesh and applier clothing items. The Mangula shop offers unique clothing for female avatars. At both shops you’ll find some great gifts and of course shopping finds. The E.Vary shop is a bright and open shop, where the Mangula shop has a surreal cloud-like atmosphere. Both stores have similar information desk areas with info about the store group, social media, and associated groups and events. These shops also share an in world group, the * E.Vary * group will get you group gifts and notices for both the shops. Currently the group is free to join.

At the E. Vary shop there are several free group gifts consisting of female skins and cosmetics. You’ll need the group tag for these, however as I mentioned before, the group is free to join at this time. Over at the Mangula shop you’ll find several other group gifts such as the free Fabulously Free group gift. You’ll need your Fab Free group tag to get this cropped top gift at Mangula. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Each of the gifts in this area of the Mangula store require a specific group tag. Finally you’ll see a few gift boxes hanging out with a pair of star balloons. There’s no group needed for these free gifts however you will need to be a member of the store’s subscriber group. Click the gift, wait while it verifies your subscriber status, and once verified your free gift will be sent to you. Each of these freebies also appear to be ladies clothing. Happy Shopping Fab Free, and I hope you enjoy the up-coming weekend.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 01/22/2019 – Sweet Willows

 

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I have another Fabulous designer to share with you today. This time I have the joy of telling you all about Sweet Willows. Sweet Willows is a small but cute shop that caters to both child and adult female avatars. Most of the clothing is casual daywear and sleepwear. There is a small section of toddler and baby clothing, and even a small number of costumes for roleplay, costume parties, or cosplay. I also spotted some very cute adult footie pajamas! The above photo is the main desk. There you can click the little sign being held by the cute corgi to join the Sweet Willows store group. There are also 3 free gifts waiting next to the dancing Storm Trooper. No group tag is required.

To the left of the presents is where you can find the free gift by Sweet Willows for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is free to join if you’re not already a member. Also, if you’re interested, you can look to the right of the desk and see the Sweet Willows store associated groups and events. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 1/13/2019 – C!L

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! You guessed it, this is another edition of “Designer of the Week” with fabulous designer C!L. This is definitely a new-to-me shop, and as C!L may well be new to you as well, we like to make a little post once a week as we have new designers joining Fabulously Free in SL to tell you about them and all they have to offer (especially the gifts!). C!L is a ladies clothing store that has a sort of “old Hollywood” feel to their clothing style. Much of what you’ll find are mesh dresses for both casual and formal occasions. The C!L shop itself is small, though I suspect that may change. Currently you will see right away the desk where you can grab a little free gift. It’s the small purple giftbox. Also, as you can see C!L is participating in the Magical Winter Hunt.

Here next to the desk is also where you can join the C!L store group. It has a one time join fee of 50 linden. The current C!L group gift is waiting just above the group joiner. It’s a pretty strapless formal gown in several colors. You can also pick up the free C!L gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members in this spot. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Just click the gift vendor while wearing your Fab Free group tag to get your fabulous fur coat.

Across from the desk on the opposite wall at C!L is a Midnight Mania board. The free prize is another beautiful formal gown in black. There is no group required to participate in this Midnight Mania board, and as you can see the board has a low target that does appear to fill up! Whether you are looking for a formal gown or just something pretty to wear while you shop, definitely stop by C!L and take a look at their glamorous clothing line.

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!

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!
