The Belle Epoque Birthday Hunt

Snapshot_001
Hey there Fabulouses! I have returned from vacation and have almost caught up on my stack of the mundane “behind the scenes Fab stuff”, and I had totally planned on getting it all finished before I started blogging the fun stuff again, but I just couldn’t help myself!

I want all the cupcakes!

I was just too excited when I saw an ad for the Belle Epoque Birthday Hunt where you can search for little cupcakes in and around the Belle Epoque Store and score some really nice items for just 10L each.  All of the cupcakes are numbered, so you can just check out the texture below to decide which ones you want to pick up before you spend the 10L on the item.   I am wearing #1 which is a really cute brown and white dotty romper in one fitmesh size along with #10 (the unique wicker plant bag).  I am not sure how long this hunt will last, so act quickly if you are interested!

Birthday Hunt !

I have picked up many of these gifts and look forward to trying them all on and showing them off!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANIRE!  Thanks for the gifts 🙂

Gorgeous in Gingham

Gorgeous in Gingham

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to showcase a Vintage Gacha Fair gift today. When we arrived, we were quite pleasantly surprised to discover that a number of talented designers are featuring free gifts at their booths at the fair.  My top today is courtesy of Belle Epoque.  Featuring a vintage pink gingham fabric, trimmed with lace edging, this tank-style cropped top is a summer time classic.  I chose to pair it with denim shorts, but the generous designer is also offering coordinating pink shorts as a gift for shoppers at the fair.  The delicate shade of pink is soft and feminine, ideal for this vintage shirt.  It comes in one mesh version, which fit my Maitreya Lara body perfectly.  The Vintage Gacha Fair runs until August 13th, so you have plenty of time to mosey on over to the Path of Destiny sim to scoop up some free goodies for yourself.    Most of the stalls have white boxes set out, which contain a free present for you.  It’s well worth the visit!

Need A Penny, Take A Penny

BelleEpoqueGG
Hello again FabFree! I know I blogged this store yesterday, but I am sending you right back to Belle Epoque today to pick up another awesome group gift that has just been released!

Time Portal

Oh, how I wish I could have been around in the 50’s and 60’s to wear these dishy dresses and walk down the city streets with my shopping bag (that I probably filled for under $10!).  At least in Second Life, we have Belle Epoque to take us back in time fashionably :).  Now you can pick up the Penny Dress as shown on my avatar (including the scarf) in one fitmesh size as a free group gift (10L to join).  I am wearing the Ocean colour that is included, but also included is Aubergine, Shadow and Olive!

Have a great day!

Be Right There!

Hey there Fabulouses!

Need a sweet glam ride?

I found this awesome gold trimmed pink airplane as a free group gift at Belle Epoque! This is a wearable item that allows you to move around in it and fly if you like.  It also has airplane sounds.  Too cute to pass up for a 10L group join fee!

ENJOY!

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Sadly our weekend is coming to an end, but I’m not going to let that get me down, and you shouldn’t either. To help keep away the pending Monday blues, I say some retail therapy is in order.

First, I love this oriental style parasol by Belle Epoque. It is the current Teleport Hub group gift at the Belle Epoque main location. This FREE gift has a single hold pose, and comes with a texture change hud that lets you choose from several equally beautiful patterns. To get your copy of this fun gift, just join the Teleport Hub group, there’s a one time fee of 10 lindens, then click the gift vendor at Belle Epoch.

Next up, I think this hairstyle by Tram is uber cute. It’s an older gift, originally available at a past hair fair, but it was new to me! lol There are several group gifts available at Tram, and the group is FREE to join. This particular gift is called F623 (though the package says F719?) and it comes in this lovely pale blue grey color only. To get your copy, head over to Tram and wear your group tag, then just click the gift vendor on the table at the back of the store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair tram F623 hair(L) / bluegray – FREE Group Gift/Group is FREE to Join

Skin – Essences – Mel (Catwa & Omega) – Exclusive@Shiny Shabby

I’m Not Leaving The Beach And You Can’t Make Me

BelleEpoquegg
Hey there Fabulouses!  It would seem after doing three swimwear posts in a row this week that I have no interest at all in leaving the beach!  We have been seeing some wonderful swimsuits as free  gifts recently either through group gifts or hunt prizes and another one just popped up in my view, this time by Belle Epoque!

Go Back In Time With Daisa

Belle Epoque’s group is currently 10L to join and after you activate your group tag you can pick up the retro Daisa Two Piece Swimsuit that comes in one fitmesh size with texture change HUD that allows you to switch between six different fun beachy textures on both the top and the bottom.  Mix and match if you like!  I have included the vendor ad below so you can see all six textures shown as I am just wearing the one – pineapple print 🙂

Daisa { GROUP GIFT }

Additionally…

I also wanted to mention that Belle Epoque has moved to a new location, so make sure you use the SLURL in this post to visit, and check out their 100L sale!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/26/2017 – Belle Epoque

Belle Epoque Exterior
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve had a marvelous week and a very happy Friday. I’m excited about this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday featuring Belle Epoque! If you’ve never visited Belle Epoque before, you must go. The clothing style is very unique. I think of it as softly feminine with a little bit of fantasy and some definite vintage flair. I spotted everything from casual dresses to elegant gowns. Along with a variety of women’s clothing, there is a whole room of gachas to discover. As you enter the Belle Epoque main location from the beautifully landscaped entrance, you’ll be greeted with the usual information desk. Directly to the left is where you’ll find the Belle Epoque group gifts.
Belle Epoque Gifts
There are two FREE Belle Epoque group gifts. The Belle Epoque group is FREE to join as well. A bit further to the left, you’ll see the Fab Free exclusive group gift, and a gift for Teleport Hub group members. As always the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. You may recall Edi had previously blogged the exclusive FREE gift for Fab Free group members in her post “Ice Dreams.” Don’t miss out on the opportunity to pick up these lovely gifts, and explore a shop with truly unique style!

Hi there Fabulouses!  Yesterday, in Astrid’s Vintage? or New Age? Blog Post, she mentioned that there are free gifts at almost every vendor participating in The Vintage Fair and she wasn’t kidding about the amount!  There are tons to pick up – with no group join.  I found a couple  in the bunch that I wanted to show off to you today.

Your garden grows where you water it…

The sweet summer dress I am wearing today is called Janae and can be found as a free gift at the Belle Epoque display.  This dress comes in one fitmesh size that should fit most.  The fit and texturing are top notch and you’ll be glad you stopped in for it!

The other item I wanted to mention is this Watering pose by Nantra that was also free, and was found at their vendor display.  This pose is very natural and actually has sprinkling water coming out of the nozzle lol.  Truth be told, I am not very talented in the garden, but…  I can handle the watering.

**  Note:  Some of the gifts at this event are set for sale at 0L and some are set to deliver on touch.  If you are having trouble buying it, try touching it instead.

Sprinter -.-

Snapshot_002
Hi there Fabulouses!  While winter and spring duke it out in my part of the RL world today with snow falling, and green things wanting to grow, I thought I’d just go back inside while they sort it out and tell you about a few things I found this week :).

My cozy sprinter (spring + winter) outfit was put together with three group gifts that I picked up here and there across the grid.  Hopefully you’ll find something you like within my look and go pick it up for yourself.

It’s As Easy As 1, 2, 3 And FREE!

  1. SWEATER: My Oversize Knit Sweater is super cute with my hands tucked into it, and is available in a Maitreya Mesh Body size (will probably work with others too using the alpha hud that comes with your mesh body) as a free group gift at Scandalize.  This group is free to join and there are a ton of other gifts to pick up in the VIP area upstairs.
  2. JEANS:  I picked these dark washed, extra torn Applier Jeans up as a free group gift at Pacagaia Creations as a free Third Life Group Gift.  This group is 10L to join, but well worth it!  These appliers will work with tons of different mesh body types (sorry, no system layers).
  3. BOOTS:  Belle Epoque is where you will find the adorable laced Liesel Boots you see me wearing in today’s post as a free group gift to celebrate 1500 inworld group members!  This group is currently free to join as well.  I have seen it with a fee before, so don’t quote me that it will stay that way.

Enjoy the rest of your day!!
