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.
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!
Happy Friday Fab Free! I hope the past week has treated you well, and if not, then I hope this weekend is able to make up for it. Either way I can definitely suggest you spend some of your free time this weekend at this week’s Designer Friday feature, BlackRose. The BlackRose main location is beautifully landscaped in a tropical setting. At the landing point you’ll find the wall of information (pictured below), and a great view of the courtyard and beach beyond. There are even a few little spots to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. BlackRose sells mostly casual women’s clothing, though you’ll find some shoes and other items on the second floor.
Just inside the door is where you’ll be greeted by the most recent BlackRose group gift. Additionally the Fab Free exclusive group gift is on the table next to the BlackRose gift. Just click the little pouch while wearing your Fab Free group tag. If you missed it, Edi blogged the Fab Free exclusive gift in her post called Family Outing. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join, and the gift is also FREE. Just around the corner from the group gifts, there are also a few Fifty Five Thursday gifts. I even picked one of them up myself! So grab your bestie and head over to BlackRose, even if it’s just to enjoy the lovely scenery!
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I am happy to share with you this week’s Fab Free Designer, La Boheme. This quaint little shop is a one-stop-shop for your makeup and nail applier needs, though La Boheme is probably best known for their beautiful nail appliers. Located on the coveted Wash sim, the La Boheme store has a boutique-like feel. It’s small enough that you won’t be over-whelmed, and still large enough that you can comfortably browse the merchandise.
Just as you enter you’ll be greeted by a large stone fireplace that creates an inviting atmosphere. It’s on the shelves around the fireplace that you’ll find the “wall of information” for La Boheme. On the shelves you’ll notice various group and event affiliations. Directly across from the hearth you’ll find several 55 Thursday special nail applier sets marked at 55 lindens per set. Additionally, there is the most recent Fab Free exclusive group gift by La Boheme. These lovely appliers will work with Omega, Maitreya, and Slink nails If you’re a Belleza nail wearer the information at La Boheme says the Omega applier will work, as long as you have the appropriate relay for Omega/Belleza. As always the Fab Free exclusive group gift is FREE. You just need to wear your group tag. In the attached second room, you’ll find more nail appliers and some beautiful makeup appliers. Don’t miss the chance to stop by La Boheme and add some uniquely pretty makeup and nail polish looks to your wardrobe!
