Z.O.E. Landing Point
Hello hello Fab Free! Thanks for being here. This week’s designer of the week is none other than Z.O.E. I have to tell you that  Z.O.E. is one of those shops that it is genuinely a pleasure to browse through. It is a shop that has a little bit of everything nestled neatly in the setting of a residential home. Shopping at Z.O.E. feels like you’re browsing through a quaint downtown shop in a small town. Much of what Z.O.E. has to offer is furniture and decor. You’ll also find commercial and residential builds, and even a small amount of men’s and women’s clothing.

Pictured above is the information area at the Z.O.E. landing point. Here you can access the shop Flickr, blog, and Facebook page. There’s also a convenient teleporter that will take you to building demos, and the clothing area on the second floor. Right next to this spot you can also purchase store gift cards.
Z.O.E. Gifts and Offers
The weekly sales at Z.O.E. are clearly marked, and not far from the landing point. There is also a group gift area. There you can join the Z.O.E. VIP group. This group is FREE to join. Z.O.E. VIP group members get discounts on new releases, discounts on regular purchases, store credit on purchases made while wearing the group tag, and group gifts. In this area is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Z.O.E. It’s a super cute two-sided frame. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Also, don’t pass by the cute heart patterned pillow. It’s not only a cute decorative pillow, it’s a FREEbie!

Zuri Entrance
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! So I will just come right out and admit it, I completely dropped the ball on this week’s Designer Friday post. However, do not let that deter you from all the fabulous shopping at Zuri. This enormous jewelry store is a jewelry lovers paradise. Zuri has everything your bejeweled heart could desire. There are items for men as well as the ladies, and even couples items like wedding bands. There are also many gifts, sales, and other offers happening all over this 3 story jewelry store! At the entrance shown above, you can get your first FREE gift from Zuri by joining their subscriber.
Zuri Gifts and Offers
As you head inside the Zuri main store you can follow the pink footprints to some Steals & Deals along with Midnight Mania boards and other awesome discounts. First however, you’ll want to make a pit-stop at the Zuri circulation desk. Not only can you pick up the info you need about an Easter hunt happening in the store, there are a hand full of gifts waiting to be picked up. The Zuri in world group has a one time join fee of 299 linden. This grants you instant access to the several group gifts, the group Midnight Mania, shopping discounts and much more.

The fun doesn’t stop there, you’ll find a little area on the first floor with the currently available Zuri group gifts. From there you’ll definitely want to explore the second floor.
Zuri Get Lucky
On the second floor of the Zuri Jewelry store you’ll find more dazzling goodness. I spotted two Lucky Chairs, and a yummy looking Lucky Dip. Each of these offers a lovely jewelry prize. I would even consider the Lucky Chair prizes to be unisex. There is also a third floor of Zuri Jewelry to explore. You will definitely want to check that out, there is a cool little observatory up there as well. Also don’t forget to keep an eye out for those Easter eggs! Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Wrong Turn at Netherwood

Sunset

Melanie Daniels: On Mondays and Wednesdays I work for the Travelers Aid at the airport.
Mitch Brenner: Helping travelers?
Melanie Daniels: No, misdirecting them.
~ From The Birds

I got a little misdirected while visiting Netherwood. You see, I was checking out Love’s post about her finds at Petite Mort and from the picture I thought, hey that looks like a nice peaceful sim to visit… but Nooooooooo……. I end up in some corner that looks like it’s straight out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie! Which is sort of suitable since I’m sporting a shirt with Birds on it. I’m sure Hitchcock would approve.

Where to get the shirt:

My shirt by Trashed is a great little hunt item from the Glam or Grunge hunt and can be yours for only 1L. You’ve already seen some items shown on the blog by Stan [here] and me [here] and Kat [here]. Now you can add this one to your wardrobe as well. Ladies there was a matching tank top for you in the box also.

Available shirt sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Adam

Getting Hairy…

I picked up a couple of “hairy” gifts for this post, including a hair for my skull and a beard for my face. The hair on top of my head is a free hunt gift as part of the St. Patrick’s Day hunt. You’ll find this in a little pot of gold at Volthair. It’s actually unisex and includes the needed hairbases for various mesh heads. It’s a long over the shoulder style that goes down the back and comes in white or brown.

My beard is from i.mesh, and I couldn’t resist the contrast of my rough and tough exterior, with the rose-filled facial hair. This too is a free gift with your free to join group tag. You’ll get the beard in black with red roses, white with blue roses, and silver with yellow roses (shown).

On the hunt for… various things.

Flower Power_001

I must have taken a wrong turn in Amsterdam somewhere. I ended up in this salvage yard while I was trying to hunt down Gavin to tell him that Serena had gone out for a horseback ride in the country. I was sure it was just down that street there but sure enough I ended up here on the wrong side of town in front of a van that looks like its straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon. Not that I mind sight seeing mind you. I’m still trying to find Gavin. I think he went shopping for Friday deals. I wonder if he got anything good?

Hunting for other things instead…

For now I’ve given up the hunt for Gavin. That guy is just on his own. I did manage to hunt down some sweet deals of my own though! I happen to love St. Patrick’s Day, mainly because it’s a good excuse to wear green. So I was checking out all the monthly hunts and ran across the Luck of the Irish Hunt and scored a really cute tank top at Ambient for just 1L! It has cute lace trim around the hem and the neckline and comes in several mesh sizes.

Shirt Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

OOOOoooo Don’t forget!

I joined the Vision Vip Group a while back for 250L. Now this might seem steep for a group join, but every month I visit the store and pick up my 100L in-store credit (plus I get access to the lucky letter boards that change out monthly too… I just happened to snag a shirt off one of those boards while I was there, and I might show that off in another post). So I had saved up my credit for the last two months and had 200L to spend.

I picked up this cute little black mini skirt that was only 199L and it didn’t cost me a single penny since I had my in-store credit. Plus I got the cute shirt I mentioned off the lucky letter board! For that one time fee, your monthly in-store credit adds up over time, making it worth joining, plus those lucky letter boards, woooo hoo!

Doing Time

Jailbird_001

Would you believe that all those treats at that little Cafe that Love mentioned weren’t free after all? Oh no. They expected a smile in return. A smile. They were selling those sweet goodies for a smile, and I just wasn’t in the giving mood, but I wanted the goods anyway so I took that brownie. That’s how I ended up with a lifetime sentence to this blog… at least the uniform is free.

Just an inmate now.

That’s right. Just an inmate now. Serving my time writing blog posts for FabFree because I wouldn’t give a smile for a brownie. But you can get my orange prison inmate uniform free too. Maybe for some roleplay. Maybe for some fun. Maybe for Halloween (it’s not too early to plan for October, never to early to plan for Halloween, I say). Just head down to the Dufaux main-store, join the group for free, and pick up this group gift. Be sure to make it through the metal detectors.

It comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Aesthetic Enzo
  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

Maybe Love will let me off on good behavior… nah. I bet she gives me hard labor doing something like straightening photographs in the infohub 😉 At least I got a brownie out of the deal.

Steam Punk Nyne

Steam Punk Nyne_001

I always love it when I can bring you free or cheap roleplay styles to add to your wardrobe. So cheers to bringing you an inexpensive look today! This one you can add to your Steampunk drawer!

The look…

This look comes courtesy of Prism Designs and is part of the Steam Hunt. It only comes in Classic Mesh sizes, but it is well worth adjusting your body to fit it, or using those mesh alpha hiders to catch any stray body parts if you must! The outfit includes a mini top hat and steampunk goggles! I love every part of it! I paired it with some color change boots from Pure Poison and I was ready to go! Like all of the gifts that are part of the Steam Hunt, this gift was free and only cost me a little hunting time.

More Hair.

As I mentioned in my post [Here], I discovered Nyne with a friend and its plethora of free gift hairstyles. I’m sporting off the newest free group gift in the picture above. I love how the color change hud includes streaks options so that you can get multicolor looks! Just don your free to join Nyne group tag and pick up the group gift free!

Dreams of Flying

Dream of Flying
Hi There Fab Free! I have something a little different to help brighten your week. The iridescent harness style lingerie is a new Lucky Letter board prize at Moon Amore. I had fun pairing it with the group gift horns from Cubic Cherry. I think the end result is both sweet and sensual. I hope you like it as much as I do!

The Lingerie – I love this unique lingerie set from Moon Amore. I think that even with the influx of harnesses and harness inspired fashion, this stands out. The set has a separate top and bottom so you could wear the pieces alone as well as together. This Lucky Letter board prize also has a color change hud that lets you choose pink, yellow, or blue (shown) for the base color of the iridescent straps. Also, the set is in a single mesh size. The Moon Amore group has a one time join fee of 30 linden and is required to win the Lucky Letter prizes.

The Horns – These cute down-turned horns are a recent group gift from Cubic Cherry. They come with a color change hud with 6 fun candy colors. The Cubic Cherry group has a one time join fee of 66 linden. There are several group gifts available at Cubic Cherry in addition to these fun interesting horns.

Here are the details, enjoy!
