Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/07/2018 – KingbalStores

Hey There Fab Free’rs! It’s time for another Fab Free Designer of the Week post. I’m happy to say we’ve added a few new designers to our roster, which is of course Fantastc! This post is all about KingbalStores. At this clothing shop you’ll find mesh and applier clothing for both male and female avatars. You read that right, this one has something for the guys too! There is a wide range of casual and semi formal clothing to be found, though I’d say most of the clothing available leans toward casual every-day styles.

At the center of the KingbalStores shop is the “circulation” desk, as I like to call them. This is where you will find all the store information and info about things like events. Additionally there is a slew of store group and associated group gifts. This is also where you’ll find the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by KingbalStores. It’s a little blue polka-dot bikini for everyone experiencing warm weather rather than cold at the moment! If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, the group is free to join. Also there is a December Advent gift calendar up at KingbalStores that is free for everyone to participate. Just click the box with the number for the date and you’ll be sent a free gift.  Finally you’ll notice several holiday themed outfits and clothing items around the Advent calendar. Each of these fun festive items appear to be priced between 75 and 100 lindens. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

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!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 09/07/2018 – Fatal Fashion

Happy Friday Fab Free! This week’s Designer Friday post is all about Fatal Fashion. While the shop does cater mostly to the ladies, I think it’s important to tell you right away that there is a small section of casual menswear on the second floor. Sorry it isn’t more gentlemen, but something is better than nothing, am I right?! haha I’d say that most of the clothing at Fatal Fashion leans toward being casual, whether it is for the men or the ladies. You can also find a small section of shoes on the second floor near the menswear. I also spotted mesh clothing as well as a few applier items, so there is fashion suitable for classic avatars. One of the best things however is the teleporter sitting outside the main entrance. I love that you can simply teleport to whatever section of the store interests you the most.

If you’re interested in group gifts, you’ll want to head to the back of the store, just to the right of the center staircase. There’s a good sized wall of various group gifts including the Fatal Fashion store group gift, and the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You may recall the Fatal Fashion gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members from Nevi’s post “Just a Beautiful Day.” Both the Fatal Fashion store group, and the Fab Free group are free to join.

While you’re there, it’s definitely worth venturing to the second floor of Fatal Fashion, even if you’re not looking for the men’s department. Most, if not all, of the clothing on the second floor appeared to be marked at 50 lindens or less. Don’t quote me on that, I didn’t check every tag! However, there are quite a few mesh and applier items for sale at bargain prices. Also on the second floor is a pair of Lucky Letter chairs. There’s one for the ladies and one for the gents. These chairs do require a group tag. You’ll need to join the Glow Events group. Not to worry, the Glow Events group is also free to join and there is a group joiner just above the Lucky Letter chairs. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/01/2018 – Dream Couture

Hello and Happy First day of September Fab Free’rs! This week’s Designer of the Week is Dream Couture. I’m sure you’re wondering why the photo with the pretty fairy grass and the whimsical tree, don’t worry I’ll get to that. First, Dream Couture is a ladies clothing store. The shop is small but has a nice range of items from casual tops to slightly formal dresses. I’d say the style was cute and feminine. The Dream Couture shop is set up in a way that it doesn’t really have a visible exterior. That said, there are two bay windows, each with this cute tree window display. The fun part is there is a pose stand in front of each of the windows. You could take a few cute selfies if you were so inclined!

Also, if you’ve never been to Dream Couture, now is the perfect time to check them out. They are having a Clearance Sale and all the items in the shop are marked down to 30 lindens. Yes, you read that right, 30 linden! I think I might have even seen a few items marked lower than 30 lindens, but don’t hold me to that! Also, it’s a great time to pick up Dream Couture’s exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You may recall this casual red dress from Nevi’s post “Field of Many Colors.” All you need to do is wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor. So take a little time out of the weekend, and head over to Dream Couture for the amazing sale and fabulous Fab Free gift.  I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend, happy shopping!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 8/23/2018 – RipRock

Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! This week’s Fabulous Friday post is a little bit different in that the store, RipRock, is a template shop! If you’ve ever fancied yourself a designer, or wanted to make your own clothes, RipRock might be just the place for you. This unique shop has all sorts of women’s fashion templates, and skin templates for purchase. You’ll have to visit RipRock for all of the details about what comes in each template set, and what the terms of use are. While you’re shopping through don’t forget to check out the “Events” area to the right, and the dollarbies to the left as you enter the store.

The RipRock dollarbies are on the left wall as you enter the store just under the group joiner. On the opposite wall to the right you’ll find a section of “Events.” This is also where you’ll find store associated group gifts such as the Fab Free exclusive group gift. This gift is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. Nevi showed off this RipRock freebie in her post “Junkyard Beauty.” If you’re not already a Fabulously Free in SL group member, have no fear, the Fab Free group is always free to join. Happy shopping, and enjoy the weekend Fab Free’rs!

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.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 07/14/2018 – De’Fient Unicorn

De'Fient UnicornHi there and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! I know, I missed getting this up late on Friday, sorry about that. This week’s designer post is all about De’Fient Unicorn. the unique name actually says a lot about what this fun little shop has to offer. De’Fient Unicorn has an eclectic mix of colorful female fashion, makeup, and accessories. Right as you walk in this brightly colored shop, you’ll see all the general information along with helpful items like a redelivery terminal. Once inside De’Fient Unicorn if you venture directly to the right you’ll see the current De”Fient Unicorn group gifts. The De’Fient Unicorn group is currently 1 linden to join and along with several group gifts, group members get store discounts when shopping while wearing their group tag. You may even recall one of the De’Fient Unicorn group gifts from Aline’s post “Cotton Candy Sunsets.” This gift is still available.
De'Feint Unicorn Group Gifts
Speaking of group gifts, located across from the De’Fient Unicorn group gifts are a few additional gifts for other store associated groups. This is where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Don’t forget your Fab Free group tag. Don’t have a Fab Free group tag yet? Get one! The Fab Free group is always free to join.

De'Fient Unicorn Sale ItemsOnce you’ve filled up on group gifts you’ll notice as you shop there are a couple of almost free makeup finds near the entrance, and there is a table stacked with discounted/sale items further inside the store. Most of these items appear to be 50 linden or less. Also, there is a vendor on the second floor with a hand-full of discounted items. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/06/2018 – BWC

Hey BWC Exterior

Hey there Fab Free! Are you ready for the weekend? How about some dancing, a date night, any excuse to wear a pretty dress or a swanky gown?! If you’ve got date night plans, BWC is the place to go. This elegant shop carries mostly what I would call ladies evening wear. There are lots of pretty cocktail dresses, and beautiful gowns. Even the more casual attire at BWC has a “dressed up” look to it. I also thought the scene outside the BWC shop was cute, it looks like a swanky outdoor piano bar.

Right now the BWC there are two free BWC group gifts, both pictured below, and an entire area upstairs of group-only discounted items. Anyone can buy these items, but only group members (wearing the group tag) will get the discount. The BWC group is currently free to join. Also, don’t forget to check out the room to the right of the main entrance. The areas of the store are well labeled with signs. It would be hard to miss the gifts and promotions area. Here you’ll find promotional and discounted items, as well as various group gifts. The free BWC group gifts previously mentioned are in this area. This is also where you can pick up the free BWC exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Don’t forget that Fab Free group tag! Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/22/2018 – Alias!

Alias Entrance
Hellooo Fab Free! It’s Fri-yay or well, for a little bit longer it is. It is the weekend just the same and for that I am thankful. This week’s Designer Friday post is all about Alias Wear. At Alias Wear you’ll find an eclectic mix of casual ladies clothing. Think tops, jeans, cute dresses, and even some swimwear. I noticed lots of cute warm weather clothing. Also if you’re into breedables like KittyCats in SL, there are a few carts outside the entrance with fun little animals for sale. Otherwise, there are several freebies to be had at Alias Wear. You can see the Midnight Madness board from outside the store!
Alias Freebies & Gifts
Alias Wear does have a free-to-join store group, however I did not notice any group gifts that were specifically for Alias Wear group members. I was able to participate in the current Midnight Madness board without wearing a specific group tag. To the right just inside the entrance is where you’ll  find quite a few other goodies at Alias. There are 6 Lucky Letter Boards that do not require a group tag to participate. I actually picked up a few of the free Lucky Letter prizes myself! In this same spot you’ll also find a few group gifts and their associated group, such as the Fab Free group gift. The free exclusive Fab Free group gift at Alias Wear is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. As always, the Fab Free group is free to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06-15-2018 – Casanova Store

Casanova Store Exterior
Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! This week’s Designer Friday post is about Casanova Store. Mark the day, this one isn’t a fashion clothing store! Casanova Store is a furniture store with a little bit of everything from indoor and outdoor furniture to stripper poles! I would consider the style of the furniture to be mostly modern. Most of the furniture at Casanova Store does appear to include adult animations or poses. The shop is not necessarily adult themed, but I wanted everyone to be aware. So if you want adult furniture you know Casanova Store is a place to find it!
Casanova Gifts

There are a few opportunities for some cool freebies at Casanova Store. There also appears to be a store sale going on at the moment, that makes two fabulous reasons to stop by Casanova Store.  First, I want to tell you the Casanova Store group is 10L to join, no reason to hesitate! Right now there is a Casanova group Midnight Mania board up that has a very modern looking house as the prize. You’ll see the MM board at the back of the store. Right next to the MM board is a small desk that has the Casanova Store group gift, and the exclusive Fab Free group gift bedroom set. You need to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag to get this free pink and black bedroom set. There are a few other group gifts to be had as well, so don’t miss those. So if you need a little something furniture wise for your home, definitely stop by Casanova Store and don’t forget your freebies!
