Fab Free Designer of the Day – 09/22/2018 – The Beautiful Ones

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs and welcome back to the blog! I’m glad you’re here, and always happy to be here myself. This week’s edition of Designer of the Week is all about The Beautiful Ones. I know that sounds like you guys, doesn’t it?! Really though, The Beautiful Ones is a ladies clothing brand that has been an established part of Second Life for quite some time now. I would describe their style of clothing as cute, casual, and relate-able. You will find some dressier items, but most of the clothes are the everyday type. Cute outfits and dresses you’d want to wear often.

One of the things that stands out about The Beautiful Ones for me, are their gifts. You can almost always guarantee that a TBO gift will be in their “signature” shade of dark teal blue. Right now there are two The Beautiful Ones store group gifts in the before mentioned shade of teal. The TBO group is currently just 25 linden to join. There are also two Midnight Madness boards, one requires The Beautiful Ones group tag, and the other is open for everyone (no tag needed). Lastly, but never least, there is a table with a hand-full of gifts. I think you’ll notice right away the colorful Fabulously Free in SL group joiner on the wall. You guessed it, these gifts are the gifts by The Beautiful Ones for other store-associated groups like Fab Free. You may even recall this post by Nevi in which she features the current TBO gift for Fab Free group members. Not yet a member of the Fab Free in world group? Have no fear, the Fabulously Free in SL group is always free to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Fortune’s Fool

Fortune's Fool

“I am fortune’s fool!” – Romeo, Romeo & Juliette – Shakespeare

Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s my favorite time of year. The weather starts to get cooler, the leaves turn, and Halloween is just around the corner. I can tell from these playful if mildly occult themed gifts from the Garden of Shadows event that many of the designers in Second Life are getting into that magical mystical spirit of the season as well. At the current round of Garden of Shadows many of the participating designers put out at least one, sometimes several, 10 linden gifts. There’s no need to join a group or wear a tag to purchase these event cheapies. While shopping the event I saw 10 linden gifts for the ladies, gifts for the gentlemen, unisex items, and even some home goods. I picked out three of the gifts to share with you, I hope you like them!

The Top – It’s no mistake that these Garden of Shadows event gifts I chose to share have a slight fortune telling theme to them. I’ve always had a fascination with the other worldly and mystical. This top is from a shop called Shinu Made. This mini crop top has a fun, macabre Ouija board print complete with dancing skeletons. It comes in three mesh sizes, and is just 10 linden.
Sizes Included – Slink, Maitreya, Belleza (There is a single mesh size for each body.)

The Necklace – The flat black kitty cat necklace Pru is wearing is another 10 linden gift at the Garden of Shadows shopping event. This one is from a shop called ProFect. It does not have any scripts, which makes it a low lag accessory, and it can be manually resized.

The Crystals – I think these Divination Crystals from Melt are a really fun, beautiful accessory/prop. They spin and rotate as if propelled by magic. This Garden of Shadows gift is also just 10 linden. Along with the spinning animation, they have their own hold pose to complete the effect. Also included is a color change hud for the crystals that gives you 8 color options.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Goodnight Moon

Goonight Moon
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I hope anyone out on the U.S. East Coast is keeping safe and as dry as possible. Today I have some super cute what I like to call “cheapies” to share with you. I picked up these pajama pants from Petite Morte, and the tattoo is from Moon Tattoos. Both bargains are too good to pass up if you ask me!

The Tattoo – This cool unisex tattoo is a Marketplace bargain from Moon Tattoo. The tattoo is priced at just 59 linden (as are many of the tattoos at the Moon Tattoo Marketplace Store). It comes in appliers, and there is a classic system tattoo layer making this tattoo suitable for both mesh and classic avatars.
Appliers Included: Omega, Maitreya Lara

The Pajama Pants – I love these pajama bottoms from Petite Morte. They are exactly what I want to wear when I’m around the house. Right now Petite Morte has a selection of 3 different novelty pajama bottoms for sale at just 50 linden per style. If moons and clouds aren’t your thing, there’s a cute kitty print, and some piggies to choose from. These won’t be 50 linden forever, so make sure you pick a pair up sooner rather than later. You’ll find them at the Petite Morte store next to the Lucky Letter boards.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/04/2018 – Baci

Baci Exterior
Sweet merciful everything it’s the weekend! What a week! I’m happy you’re here Fab Free’rs, and clearly happy for the weekend. This week I get to share with you Baci. This sweet shop reminds me of those swanky boudoir boutique style shops. It is a ladies clothing store where you’ll find lots of feminine sexy dresses and lacy underthings. Baci is a small enough shop that it’s quite easy to navigate, but large enough that there’s plenty to look at. There are also quite a few dollarbies and gifts to be had, which of course we love!

Just as you enter Baci, you’ll see a couple of dollarbies to the right, along with two group gifts. These gifts, such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift, require a specific group tag. The dollarbies are just 1 linden each, no group needed. I even picked up the dollarbie Omega applier tan lines myself!  Also, you may recall the cute little Fab Free group gift dress by Baci from Nevi’s post “Dreaming of Yesterday.” To the left, there’s another dollarbie (it appears to be a rez day gift) that is also available to everyone.

If you follow the walkway to the right and go all the way, you’ll find the wall of Baci store group gifts. There are several dresses, and some pretty lingerie gifts. The Baci store group is just 1 linden to join at this time. You can get a quick glance at these gifts in the lower right photo above. Finally, there are several Baci group-only Lucky Letter boards directly across from the Baci store group gifts. My apologies, I didn’t get a photo of the Lucky Letter boards. Happy Shopping Fab Free! I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

See No Evil

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I recently came across this interesting blindfold from This is Wrong. It’s a free group gift that is just too cool looking to not share with you. Also, Letituier is having a Retirement Sale you won’t want to miss out on. I hope you enjoy these fun and interesting finds.

The HairLetituier is having a Retirement Sale. All hair packs are just 55 linden each. Gachas are set at 55 linden per pull as well. Letituier is known for more editorial and creative. They remind me of the styles you see in fashion magazines and on runway models during a high fashion show. I’m not sure how long this sale will last, so don’t wait! Also the Letituier group is free to join and there is a current free group gift.

The BlindfoldThis is Wrong has this unisex blindfold out as a free group gift. This gift has resize scripts and would be great for role play and creative photos. I really like all the detail with the heart-shaped locks. The This is Wrong group is 50 linden to join at this time. Along with this unisex blindfold gift, there are 4 lucky letter boards, 2 with female tattoos, and 2 with male tattoos.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Teal for Two

Two for Teal
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Like my new claws? They are a super cute new group gift at E.Marie. Along with the new nails, I picked up this dress from MH Unique. It reminded me a lot of the MH Unique Design dress Aline showed in her post here, which I missed out on. So I was happy to see this more recent group gift. I kinda feel like it’s been one of those “long weeks” even though it’s only Wednesday. Ha! So bare with me and I’ll get you all the hows and wheres of getting your hands on these fantastic group gifts.

The Claws – I love that these are mesh nails that work with bento hands rather than nail appliers. This particular set is a current group gift at E.Marie. The set comes in a few sizes, and the pink/teal color gradient with pretty gold flecks. There are also a few other equally cute group gifts available. The E.Marie group is 50 linden to join. I’ll include a copy of the vendor ad so you can get a better look at these super cute nails.
Sizes Included: Slink Dynamic, Vista Prohand, Maitreya Lara
e.marie // Group Gift July

The Dress – This cute sleeveless dress is a current group gift at MH Unique Design. The dress comes with a color change hud that allows you to pick from 10 solid colors, that all seem to have this pretty satiny finish. The MH Unique Design group has a one time join fee of 100 linden at this time.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic Curvy

Born Sinner

Born Sinner
Hello Fab Free’rs! Ignore the expression on Pru’s face, I’m happy you’re here! I initially thought the expression looked kinda cool with this sassy group gift dress from OOPS. After closer inspection, I think the expression paired with this pose and hair makes it look like Pru is really disgusted with her braid. Hahaha Oh well! Speaking of group gifts, these curved horns are a group gift from Psycho Barbie. Keep reading and I’ll give you all the info about these awesome group gifts.

The Horns – It’s never been a secret, I love horns. These horns come in classic black and can be resized via touch menu. One of the things I like about these group gift horns from Psycho Barbie is that they are individually placed. What I mean is, there’s a right horn and a left horn, they can be positioned and resized individually. To get yours head over to Psycho Barbie and join the in world group.  there is a one time join fee of 50 lindens. You’ll find this gift on a shelf with several other previous group gifts.

The Dress – I like that this provocative dress is a little bit goth and a little bit punk rock. It is a recent group gift at OOPS. With this gift you’ll get the dress in 2 versions, one with a plaid skirt (shown), and a second one with a black skirt that has little white crosses. Both dresses say “Born Sinner” at the waist. They also come in several mesh sizes. The OOPS group has a one time join fee of just 10 linden and there is more than one group gift currently available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Netflix and Chocolate

Netflix & Chocolate
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! What do you do when it’s 3am and you can’t sleep? Get out the chocolate, make some coffee, and binge watch something on Netflix. That’s what I do anyway. I also might do a little hunting in Second Life. Just recently the Sweet & Sour Hunt began, and there are several great shops participating. The Sweet & Sour Hunt is a dollarbie (1 linden) hunt which will run through July 15th. I picked up a couple of the prizes and am excited to share two of them with you today.

All things considered this dollarbie Sweet & Sour Hunt prize from X.T.C. Poses couldn’t be more perfect for someone like me. Aptly named “Netflix n …Chocolate” this pose is one of two Sweet & Sour Hunt prizes at X.T.C. Poses. This pose includes the coffee and chocolate along with the static pose for just 1 linden. That’s a steal of a deal if you ask me!

HintF (shown) – Maybe I should phone a friend for help? / M (not shown) – Grab a soda, might help you think

Trashed is also participating in the dollarbie Sweet & Sour Hunt. Their hunt prize is this cute bandeau style mesh top. The dollarbie top from Trashed comes in a few sizes in the single blue/grey color shown.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, eBody, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (small, large)

Hint – Flaunting at Midnight

Hellooo Fab Free’rs! As you can see by the photos above, I’ve been having some fun with several freebies and cheapies I found recently. I want to say right away that each of them is very time sensitive so if you like them do not wait to pick them up! Keep reading and I’ll give you all the infos!

That Hair!

Each of the two hairstyles shown above are part of the single Finders Keepers/St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. There have been a many other recent posts showing Finders Keepers Hunt items, I’ll list the others below. These super cool hairstyles are from A&Y Cybernetics. You’ll be hunting a little pot of gold. The hunt ends March 24th, so again do not wait! The hint for A&Y’s post of gold is “golden light of the firefly beckons gold.” In the FREE hunt gift at A&Y you’ll get the Lucia hair (left) and the Dext hair (right). The Lucia hair comes with a “no tubes” version. The Dext hair is technically a male hairstyle. It has a set of system layer hair bases and an Omega applier hair base.

P.S. I had a little help from a loyal Fab Free reader finding this hunt prize, so I’ll pay it forward to you. The key word in the hint is “Firefly”. I hope that helps. Happy Hunting!

Pineapple Park Avenue Princess

Pineapple Princess
Hello Again Fab Free’ers! I am feeling the weekend vibes, as you can see I had a lot of fun with this look. It would be difficult to not have a good time with the pineapple print on this group gift dress from Hypnose. The group gift hairstyle and the fluffy doll-like lashes from Besom paired really well with the flirty style of the dress.

The Dress – I have to tell you I feel like some kind of Park Ave. Princess in this chic pineapple print dress from Hypnose. There really should be a photo of the back of this group gift dress from Hypnose. It has pretty yellow laces. The Hypnose group has a one time join fee of 50 linden. In addition to this super cute dress, I saw 2 0r 3 other gifts available.
