Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/11/2017 – Inevitable Madness

Inevitable Madness Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, welcome on this late Friday night. There probably isn’t a more perfect time to introduce this week’s designer Friday subject, Inevitable Madness. Madness I think is perhaps often inevitable on a Friday night when you don’t have to work the next day! haha Okay that is another blog post topic all together. Inevitable Madness is another new-to-me shops that I’m happy to have encountered. The store specializes in appliers of all kinds for human and furry avatars including makeup, manicures, clothing, and even some accessories and decor. I would say the style leans toward goth, but it is definitely eclectic.
Front Desk Friends Promo
The front desk is centered in the room as you enter the shop and has all the needed usual information available. Here you’ll notice Inevitable Madness has 2 groups you can join. I’ll tell you more about those in just a moment. In the main room you’ll find info on events on either side of the desk, and an area on a separate wall for “Friends.” I like this variation on the usual wall of associated entities. On the other side of this Inevitable Madness main room, you’ll find a cute 15 linden nail applier Promo.
Group Stuff
Before you exit the main room of the Inevitable Madness shop to shop and explore, don’t forget to stop by the “Group Only” table. This table has several group gifts for other store associated gifts such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join, so just wear your group tag to pick up your FREE gift at Inevitable Madness. To get a look at this pretty nail applier gift, check out the group gift listing Love posted here.

Speaking of group gifts, there are 2 groups you can join to be in the know on all things Inevitable Madness. The base group is FREE to join and will grant you access to one Midnight Madness board, and 2 Lucky Letter chairs. The VIP group at Inevitable Madness has a one time join fee of 100 linden. In the VIP group receives group gifts, and there are spaces available for VIP group Midnight Madness boards, and VIP group Lucky Letter chairs. You’ll find the group gifts piled on a table in the same area of the store. Needless to say there are lots of opportunities to not only stay informed, but get some sweet gifts and deals. So go, and have some fun, and enjoy some shopping at Inevitable Madness!

Carefree Summer Stroll

Wandering Around the Grid

Happy Mid-Week, Fabulouses!  It was time for another walk down a country lane for the pupster and I.  Today, we have a fabulous 1L hunt gift to share with you from the Around the Grid hunt, and I hope you like this complete outfit as much as I do!

Summer Freedom

Rip and I have just a small amount of summer freedom left to enjoy, so it’s kind of ironic that the outfit we bring you today is called “Liberata.”  It features a criss-cross strapped crop top and sleek capris.  The black fabric has a gorgeous sheen and realistic folded texture.  One of the things I love about gifts from Brii Underground is that they are generally complete outfits, and Liberata is no exception.  My bracelets, top, pants, and wedges are all included in the prize package, as well as sunglasses, a necklace, and a makeup layer for Catwa Jessica, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  Right out of the box, you get a full outfit that will set you up from head to toe for just one little Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for top and pants for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

The Shore from Here…

Pineapple_001

The shore is pretty from here, and I have stopped to check it out from the dock. Good thing I am all dressed for the part thanks to a few lucky gift finds and a lovely in-store gacha hair that I couldn’t pass up. I thought I’d check in with you Fabulous readers and share my finds with you!

Pineapples!

I love applier clothes and this cute top from Egoxentrikax stole my … pineapple with ITS pineapples! It’s a free group gift (the group is free to join) and you’ll get both system layers and an omega applier that works with most mesh bodies.

A touch of class.

Moondance Boutique has out a new group gift for the month of July. Just like last month, this gift is free and the group is free to join. It includes the necklace and the earrings shown in the picture, and just like last month you get a full color change hud with colors to change the texture of the metal, and both gems in the jewelry for lots of versatility!

Top it off!

I stopped by Wasabi Pills after seeing they had some new hairs out, but ended up navigating toward their in-store Gacha section instead. I came across the Bianca Gacha and really loved the hair style. There are two styles in the machine: style 1 (shown) which has only one side of the hair tucked behind one ear and Style 2 (not shown) which has both sides of the hair tucked behind your ears. For just 75L per spin, this is a chance to win some really pretty hair!

Spending A Little, Getting A Lot

Snapshot_017Hello there Fabulouses!  Last month on FabFree, I featured a really cute group gift by Mishchino [HERE], and I thought it would be a good idea to take a trip down there again this month to see what was new in the shop.  Boy was I glad that I did!

Sold For 20L!

I *think* there is a new group gift to pick up there, and I will have to go back and check lol, because my eyes zoomed straight to this mermaid scale printed dress and I was lost in the sale.  I nearly fell over when I saw it was priced at just 20L.  There are several of the Olivia Dresses in different prints for sale on the same rack for just 20L as well.  There was no Maitreya version included for the body I normally wear, however the medium mesh size fit me just fine with the use of the Maitreya Lara Alpha HUD.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus & Isis
  • Belleza Freya Natural, Perky & Pushup

A Couple Shopping Additions…

Since I was out saving a bundle of lindens (I’d have spent so much more on that dress… just sayin), I had a little extra for some Cosmopolitan Sales Room Finds!  I added a close up shot below so you can see the ARTE Shimmer Eyeliner and Supernatural Splash Necklace that are both available at great prices at the new round of Cosmo Sales Room.

Don’t Get Up

Snapshot_007
This is exactly what my RL dog does when he doesn’t want me to get up. He’ll just lay across me, so I can’t easily move in hopes that I don’t bother.  Fortunately my RL dog is much smaller than my SL variety.

Previously on FabFree…

I have shown you a couple of group gifts that are available at Just Ordinary, but the gifts don’t stop there!

  1. Anything But Just Ordinary
  2. Pick Up!  I’m Calling You On My Banana Phone

I quite like the Isabelle Dress as shown on my avatar as it’s perfect for an easy breezy casual kind of day and it gets bonus points for being free too.  You can actually pick up more than a handful of free group gifts when you join the free inworld group at Just Ordinary.

Isabelle’s Size Range:

  • XS-XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • XS-XL Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Creating Curb Appeal

Bath Time!

Bathtime

It’s bathtime! And all I have to do is slip out of my new dress and take some time to relax. But first I have to tell you where I got my new attire (it was completely free) and as well as where my bath set came from! You’ll have to hurry on the bath set, as it is a Hello Tuesday event special!

The Dress

Pick up my pretty in pink Emma dress as a free group gift from ViSion. The group is free to join, making this dress free as well. It has a hud to change the color of the zipper on the back to three different metal choices, as well as you can change the color of the trim on the dress to many different colors as well for lots of versatility. The dress comes in several mesh body sizes including:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Hello Tuesday!

I stopped by the Hello Tuesday event to look around and came across the stall for Black Jack. Inside they had a variety of gachas and I fell in love with the quaint little bathroom set.

I picked up the entire set (though not quite every piece is shown in my picture… I didn’t manage to get the sink, wall mirror, or toilet into the shot). At only 50L per spin, this set is a nice addition to your home, and the bathtub includes a nice bathing animation! It is extremely low prim, with each piece coming in at only 1 to 3 prims each! You might just want the entire set for your home.
