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.

Don’t let the days go by

Don't let the days go by

I can’t even think of any car terms off the top of my head to throw out and pretend I’m doing something to this shiny red car in front of me. Lame. But let’s skip all that and cut to the chase. No reason to be coy, right? My butt looks fantastic in these shorts. And even better? Yours will too!

Just 1L!

I grabbed this outfit by N-Uno on the marketplace for 1L! I realize I’m not showing most of it, but here’s the marketplace link so you can see the vendor ad for yourself. The shirt and shorts are separate pieces and they each come in 5 sizes, L-XXS. The outfit comes in the color I’m showing as well as a bunch of others. All for 1 silly little L!

Fifty Linden Friday!

I love a good pair of boots. I got the ones that I’m wearing here from paper arrow for Fifty Linden Friday. There was this pair and another darker shade for 50L each. Do I even need to say that I bought both? Yeah, ’cause I bought both… Each pair comes sized for Maitreya and Slink.

There are lots of other great things available for FLF as well. And don’t forget that the Saturday sale is tomorrow!

Dream On

Dream On

I’m not much of a napper, but I could go for one right about now. I went to the Epiphany earlier. I’m exhausted. That is such a great event, but a little overwhelming because there is sooooo much awesome stuff. And gachas, of course! Who doesn’t love gachas? Nobody, that’s who. And this round there are a bunch of presents scattered about. You don’t need to join a group to get them or anything, just give them a click and they’re yours for free! I’m wearing two of them today.

Sexy Dress

This dress is quite the eye catcher. It is the Epiphany free gift from Luas. I thought it would be cute as a bathing suit cover up too, but couldn’t be bothered to dig out a suit. I’m sleepy, okay? So the applier undies that I’m always wearing will be just fine for my nap. But don’t be fooled, this dress is super hot and the texture is fabulous. It comes in 4 sizes: Freya, Hourglass, Isis, and Maitreya.

Pretty Shoes

I love the pretty floral pattern on these flats. The fit is a Maitreya exclusive. You’ll find them at Epiphany as the free gift from Breathe. I suppose it’s time for me to kick them off and get more comfy, but they’re so cute that I don’t want to!

Mesh Body: Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head: Catwa Magy
Skin Applier: Deetalez Snjezana
Eyes: Avi-Glam Reverie Eyes
Eyelashes Applier: Arte My Lashes
Hair: Magika Fever
Rings: *elise* Caterina
Bra: Zaara Chanchal Lingerie (the ones that come with the Maitreya Lara body)
Dress: Luas Lydia Dress (0L / free gift at the Epiphany)

Daydreaming of Lisa Frank

Dreaming of Lisa Frank
Hello hello Fab Free! Summer in the southern part of the U.S. (and just about everywhere else from what I understand) has become synonymous with blazing heat. It’s hot out ya’ll! It’s easier to stay cool when you can lounge in the shade wearing a cute little summer dress and open-toe shoes. Both these summer wardrobe essentials are free group gifts you won’t want to miss.

The DressHilly Haalan has more than one free group gift available. The dress Pru has on is the “Debbie” dress. It comes in several sizes, and includes a texture change hud with quite a few graphic tee style options and an equal number of solid colors to choose from. The Hilly Haalan group is also free to join at this time. This fun yellow version with the leopard spots made me instantly think of Lisa Frank. Don’t know who Lisa Frank is? Google her. You’re welcome in advance for all the colorful rainbow goodness. P.S. There’s a copy of the original vendor ad for the Debbie dress toward the bottom of the post.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

The Shoes – These fierce looking purple shoes from Heels are almost as hot as the weather! I kind of want to wear them with everything. The Heels by Morgan W. group is free to join at the moment. These shoe come in the deep purple color shown with a few size options.
Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Just waiting on the sun to go down

Just waiting on the sun to go down

I will admit that I had a bit of a country stage of my second life. It was actually one of the first things that I did when I started. It was super fun and I met lots of really great people. So if you think that I’d miss the chance to throw on some denim and play cowgirl again? Well you would be sorely mistaken!

My dress is by Sexy Princess and it is the perfect denim. But be warned, there is a bit more to this dress than what my picture shows…or I guess I should say that there is a bit less to it. I can’t show you the back, I’m far too modest for such things. Let’s just say that the farmer would not approve of his daughter walking away in this sexy little number and you can see what I mean when you go pick it up. This dress is one of the free group gifts at Sexy Princess and the group is free to join. The sizes included are:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Why can’t RL jogging look this cute? SL me is all adorable and non-sweaty. And she’s not wearing socks, can you imagine the blisters? Okay, maybe I’m taking the SL vs RL comparison too far. I just know that when I found these shorts I had to wear them. This is another post overflowing with freebies, but accidentally this time. I went to build an outfit around my shorts and all the other fabulous free stuff was already hiding in the depths of my inventory. Let me tell you, my inventory is truly an amazing yet terrifying place.

Shorts

I really love these shorts. They are an in-store free gift at Hashtag for pride month, but they are still out. I didn’t need to join a group or anything, just tp in, give it a click, and they were mine! They are grey with stripes along the bottom and say “love is love” on one side. Only one size is included, for Maitreya.

Shirt

I didn’t realize that this free top by Vinyl had been out for so long. Love first showed it almost 2 years ago, but it is still really great. It comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

It also comes with a HUD full of color options – it can be plain, say the names of different cities, and the bra straps underneath can be changed too or just removed. If you don’t already have it, then you need it. Just head over to Vinyl, join the free group, and it’s on the wall will a bunch of other great freebies too.

Shoes

These shoes are a Teleport Hub group gift at The Oak. There is a version for guys also and the female ones comes in 2 sizes – Classic and Maitreya. And they are super customizable. The HUD that is included has 8 colors and each part of the shoe can be changed individually. The possibilities are endless…well not endless but there’s like, a lot.

Pose

And finally the pose. I don’t know why I always list the pose last, it’s quite possibly the most important part of putting a picture together in my opinion. This one was only 1L on the marketplace here! Yes, please. Actually now that I’m looking again, there are a bunch of other 1L and 10L poses in Korper’s marketplace store as well. I’m gonna have to go back and get me some more poses!

Ready, Steady, Go!

Ready, Steady, Go!

I literally have no idea why, but this outfit made my think of the song “Ready Steady Go” by The Meices.  It was on the soundtrack for one of my all-time fave movies:  Empire Records.  I could go on for ages about the movie, and quote things like “Well Sinead O’Rebellion” and “Happy Rex Manning day!”.   But I’ll spare you all the gory details.  Seriously, if you haven’t watched it and you are in desperate need of some grunge escapism, I cannot recommend it highly enough.  AAaaaaanyway, on to the outfit.

All The Things She Said

So maybe it’s the checkered flag thing going on that made me think of “ready steady…”, who knows… All’s I know is that this outfit is pretty awesome.  And yup, it’s FREE!  I picked it up over at Seul as this month’s group gift.  Join the group for free, and get your mitts on this two piece fab look.   If it’s too much for you as one single outfit you could totally wear it with a black top, or with jeans.  Cool, right?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Shock Me, Shock Me, Shock Me!

What’s actually shocking about these amazing platforms by Mosquito’s Way is the fact that they as well are entirely free.  I joined their group for free last month, and didn’t leave because their shoes are really fab!  This month’s group gift comes in super summery colours of turquoise and tangerine, and has some fantastic lacing with beads that just makes me happy.  Go grab your own pair!  They are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP.

Damn the man! Save the Empire!

Discoveries at Dawn

Dawn of a New Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a lovely Sunday.  Before the weekend is over, I want to tell you about two group gifts that I came across early this morning in my SL travels.  Although I chose white for the dress, it comes with a texture HUD packed with 15 options, including prints and solids, so it’s very versatile!

Dress to Impress

The free Katie Dress from Hilly Haalan Fashions features a sleeveless design with loosely draping fabric which is gathered at the waist with a belt.  A v-shaped neckline and a small gathered section in the skirt add visual interest.  I really like the soft shimmering texture of each of the solid colored options for the fabric, and look forward to trying out the pretty floral prints, too.  The belt is colorized separately from the body of the dress, which really adds to the variety of looks you can create.  The gift package includes versions for a variety of mesh avatars (no classic fits).  To pick up this free July gift for yourself, simply teleport over to the shop, activate the Hilly Haalan Fashions group tag (it’s completely free to join), and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Fabulous Shoes That Can Lift Your “Sole”

Of course, what would a new dress be without a pair of heels to go with it?  Selene Creations has you covered with their free July group gift, which is a strappy pair of sexy high heels.  With plenty of wiggle room for your toes and a criss-cross design, these ivory shoes would challenge my navigational skills in real life with their high, narrow heels, but in Second Life, walking and even running in them is a piece of cake!  The package includes Belleza, Maitreya and Slink fits.  You do have to be a member of the Selene Creations group to receive these, and joining costs 100L, but they are just so pretty!  Here’s a close up so you can get a better look at them:

Chase Your Dreams....In High Heels of Course!

I’m off to finish exploring Snuggles Forest with Ripley.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Say my name, sun shines through the rain

Say my name, sun shines through the rain

Hi there! I’ve maybe gone a little overboard with the flowers today – they’re on my dress, in my hair, and of course all over my background. But I can’t help it. Flowers are always pretty and they never clash with each other, they just become more beautiful! Huh I feel like there’s a life lesson in there somewhere. I better cut myself off before this becomes another edition of “deep thoughts with Allison.”

Floral Dress

I love this sweet, floral dress from BEO. It’s feminine and sexy all at the same time and hangs just perfect. The more I look at it the more I like it, it’s truly lovely. It is only sized for Maitreya and comes with a HUD that lets you change the color of the belt. The BEO group is free to join and you’ll find this dress in the store as a free group gift.

Tippy Toes

These super cute flip flops are another of the Cosmopolitan free group gifts. I posted all the details of this event yesterday, and you can find links in that post to the others posts on the subject. These shoes come in just one size, which fit my Maitreya high feet perfectly. They include a HUD that lets you pick different colors, too. These will definitely become a summer staple for me!
