Fab Free Designer of the Week – Legendaire

 

Hello Fab Free! It’s time for another edition of “Fab Free Designer of the Week.” For this post we are happy to feature Legendaire. I have to say, shopping at Legendaire feels almost like an event. There are so many things happening, it’s a party, and I for one am here for it! Legendaire specializes mostly in women’s fashion, including shoes, and accessories. The style is very feminine with pretty prints and bright colors. There’s also a small section of menswear on the second floor.  There are also a few non-clothing items as an example I even saw a car for sale! 

Before you head upstairs however, there are freebies and group gifts waiting for you just inside the Legendaire entrance. Right inside there are two tables with free gifts. These gifts are completely free, no group needed. Then on one of the square pillars you’ll see all the store affiliated groups and their gifts. Some of which are also free with the required group tag. This is where you’ll find the Fab Free group gift at Legendaire for example. Just wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and click the little black gift bag with the Fab Free sign on it. The Fab Free group is of course free to join.

On the side of the same pillar you’ll find two of the Legendaire group gifts. The Legendaire group has a one-time join fee of 49 linden. Additionally you’ll see a teleporter that will take you to the Legendaire outlet/discount area with even more Legendaire group gifts and discounted items. Don’t miss these awesome finds at Legendaire, happy shopping!

Let’s Get Mystical


Bewitching

“Let’s get mystical, mystical, I wanna get mystical. Let’s get into mystical… “

Okay that’s not really how the song goes but it was kinda fun to sing it that way! Why am I changing the lyrics to an Olivia Newton John song? The Mystical Market of course! Don’t try to understand my pretzel logic, it’ll only confuse you more. The point of all this silliness is there happens to be a 5 linden hunt happening at Mystical Market. There are little black cauldrons full of witchy prizes scattered around the area. For this post I picked up 2 of the many 5-linden hunt prizes, the prize from WitchCraft and the prize from LOVE. Let’s get mystical.

WitchCraft

The black lace-trimmed dress I’m wearing is the 5 linden hunt prize by WitchCraft at Mystical Market. The dress comes in a several sizes and has a color change hud with 4 solid color choices.

Sizes Include: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

LOVE

The pretty floral wall is part of the 5 linden hunt prize by LOVE at Mystical Market. This gift includes a pack of pretty floral walls that remind me of climbing flowering vines. They come in several colors with 3 versions each, and have little twinkle lights for an extra touch of whimsy.

There aren’t really any hints for these hunt prizes, however I can tell you that the cauldrons you’ll be looking for aren’t often hidden as much as they are settled in and around the landscape. Some are even hiding right in plain sight!

What I’m Wearing:

Hair – Tableau Vivant \\ Summer Hairplay – Chinook – Ombre
Head – Catwa Koura
Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
Eyes – BuzzeriCelestial Eyes – Ice
Dress – [WitchCraft] Willow dress – 5L MMH Prize @Mystical Market
Manicure – {WitchCraft} Midnight Nails + Polish – Currently @Mystial Market
Cat – –Pixicat– Bastet.Sphynx RARE
Floral Wall – LOVE – Tall Wall Foliage Pack – 5L MMH Prize @Mystical Market

Fab Free Designer of the Week – KaraBaby


Hello hello Fab Free, and welcome back to the blog. I hope everyone has had an enjoyable week so far. Mine has been good, and creating content for this blog always makes it brighter. For today, it’s time for a designer of the week post with the spotlight on KaraBaby. A shop focused post has been long over due. If you’ve ever visited KaraBaby you know this clothing boutique specializes in mesh and applier clothing for female avatars.

Most of what you’ll find at KaraBaby is casual style dresses, and outfits. There is however a wide range of fashion. You can find everything from lingerie and evening dresses to shoes and swimwear. While browsing the “racks” I saw lots of bright colors and dainty prints. There are also some great opportunities at KaraBaby to pick up some fashion for little to no lindens.

Once inside the KaraBaby shop you’ll find the 35 Linden Sunday Sales items are still available to the right side next to the event items. To the left just as you enter you’ll see the free KaraBaby group gift, and the free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. First, the free KaraBaby group gift is the pretty floral print dress shown. At this time the KaraBaby group is free to join. Next, the pretty shoes with vintage flair are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Additionally, there is a discount area upstairs where you can find great bargains on older items. Happy Shopping!

Hello Fab Free, thanks as always for being here. Petite Mort has done it again and put out an absolutely gorgeous must-have furniture and décor set for Gacha Garden. I’ve also got a cute little kitty friend from JIAN to share with you. I hope you love them both.

Petite Mort

Gacha Garden recently started, and once again I can’t get over the furniture and décor collection by Petite Mort. It is just 50 linden per play and there are 11 commons and 1 rare. The pillow basket is a Gacha Garden exclusive that is awarded after 20 pulls. The chair has 10 sit poses, and several of the items have resize scripts. I have included the gacha key for this set so you can see all the pieces. The lamp and chandelier are not shown in my photo.

The adorable sleeping kitty in its funny fish bed is a free group gift at JIAN. Though not super recent it is one of a handful of free group gifts available. This particular gift lets you pick from several fur patterns for the cat, and 3 texture choices for the fish. There are also resize scripts. Lastly, there is a fun animation that makes the cat appear to yawn and stretch that can be turned on or off. The JIAN group is free to join.

The Scent Takes Me Back


The Scent Can Take Me Back

A big part of nostalgia for me occurs with certain smells. The scent of a specific incense, or a certain soap, even flowers can trigger memories. I love that. Generally the memories are always pleasant ones. My nostalgic smells aside, I do have some fabulous group gifts to share with you, so let’s get to it.

The Dress

This cute blue jean dress does have a bit of nostalgia for me in that it reminds me of that time in the early ’90s when Guess jeans were all the rage, and denim everything was in style. It’s one of many free group gifts at Julia’s Scandal. I paired the dress with a low cut applier tank top for a bit of added modesty. This dress showed a bit more of my girls than I wanted. My shape however could have been the culprit. Either way, I think it’s a cute look. The Julia’s Scandal group is free to join at this time.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Earrings

I know you can not see beaded the earrings I have on super well in this photo. My apologies for that, they seem to blend in with the background. I’ll include the vendor photo below so you can see these fun over-sized earrings by Indulge Temptation. They are the current Teleport Hub group gift at IT!. The earrings come in a blue and red version, and a pink and blue version, each with three metal choices. The Teleport Hub group has a one time join fee of 10 linden.

The Pose & Flower 

This pretty bento pose by Hazeel was previously a Pose Fair gift, and now can be picked up at the Hazeel pose shop, with your Hazeel group tag. The gift includes the bento pose in and out of a poseball, and the rose in pink, red, or yellow. Each rose also has a transfer version so you can pass it to others. The Hazeel group has a one time join fee of 99 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available.

Horsing Around


Horsing Around

We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.

Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –

My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.

Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!

R2A July Group Gift –

The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.

Vetro Poses Basketball Pose – 

Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.
