Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/19/2018 – Hanau

Hanau Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Once again we are bringing the week to an end on the Fab Free blog with this week’s Designer Friday post. This week we are taking a look at the Hanau main store. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Hanau, they are probably best known for women’s applier clothing and lingerie. However, they also have mesh clothing and some accessories. I think the colorful tree outside their store is a great visual representation of their clothing style. No silly, it doesn’t look like trees, but it is vibrant and playful! Also there are lots of opportunities for you to score some really cute FREE clothes at Hanau. Keep reading to learn how.
Hanau Offers & Gifts
The Hanau store is well laid out with clear signage. I love it when shops are so easy to navigate! At the landing point is where you’ll find the “information wall” and the “circulation desk” that most if not all shops seem to have. This is also where you’ll find various group gifts. One of such gifts is the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift was previously announced in a post by Love here. It is FREE to all Fab Free group members, and of course the Fab Free group is FREE to join. At the circulation desk is where you’ll find the most recent Hanau group gifts. The Hanau group also happens to be FREE to join at this time.

As you browse through the Hanau main store, you’ll see a gacha room. This is also where the FREE for everyone lucky letter boards are located along with the FREE for everyone Midnight Mania board. I say “FREE for everyone” because these boards do not require any group to participate. I didn’t get the exact time, however the Lucky Letter boards do seem to change quickly. I hope you enjoy shopping at Hanau and all the fabulous freebies they have to offer.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/12/2018 – Deadly Nightshade

Deadly Nightshade
Hello Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog for another edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. This week I get to talk about Deadly Nightshade. Not the plant, the shop! Deadly Nightshade is self-described as “bringing you quality avatar accessories of the magical and otherworldly varieties.” After browsing the shop, I felt like it was a sort of Second Life version of an Occult shop. At Deadly Nightshade you’d purchase accessories and other items to aid in an otherworldly or magical appearance. Most of the items I encountered are unisex as well, so the guys can get accessorized also.

The Deadly Nightshade shop has a very minimalist setup with signage on the floor guiding you to different types of merchandise. There are walking accessories, wearable auras, gachas, and more to explore. I even spotted a tiny bit of women’s clothing, and some decor. The landing point is a round central room where you’ll find everything you need in regards to shop information, group gifts, and events. Fitting with the round room, the circulation desk at Deadly Nightshade is also round. You’ll want to check out the desk, it’s where you’ll find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Both the Fab Free group and the Deadly Nightshade group are FREE to join. So if you’re looking for something different, something magical perhaps, you won’t want to miss out on these Fabulous FREEBies!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/29/2017 – Loordes of London

Loordes of London Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! This week seemed to fly by, maybe it’s all that Christmas cheer. This weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Loordes of London. At this shop you’ll find a lot of everything from jewelry and shoes to dresses and sweaters. Most of the items are fully mesh and both priced and styled well. The style is what I would call classic. There is a lot of attention to detail in the items at Loordes of London.
Loordes of London Events & Info
As you enter the Loordes of London store, you’ll see the desk with the usual information including the group joiner, and a Marketplace link. There’s also a little pink package on the desk that says it’s the January gift at Loordes of London. You can pick it up for just 10 linden. Also, I thought I’d let you know that I did notice several hunt items just waiting to be found as I browsed the shop. In the same section of the store as the circulation desk is a long wall of events, group affiliations, and hunts. In the same area is also where you can pick up the Fab Free exclusive gift from Loordes of London. Just wear your Fab Free group tag. If you’re not already in the Fab Free group, it’s always FREE to join. As if that wasn’t motivation enough, the Loordes of London shop has 3 wings and 2 stories full of fashion to explore.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/22/2017 – Bliss

Bliss Exterior
Happy happy Friday Fab Free’rs! This week we get some Bliss, no really, this Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Bliss. The Bliss main store is on The Wash sim, which is all decked out for the winter holidays. You can even stop for a latte on your way into Bliss for a little pre-shopping pick-me-up! Bliss is a ladies clothing store with a full range of items from date night/girls night dresses to casual wear, and even some lingerie. I also noticed there is applier clothing, as well as mesh. There’s sure to be something to suit your fancy no matter what your personal style might be. Also, the purple Christmas tree in the  middle of the store is kind of awesome!
Bliss Gifts & Info
Just as you enter the Bliss store you’ll see a bright sign with the candy cane frame. It’s for the “Baby It’s Cold Outside” hunt. This hunt is kind of unique in that you can buy the hunt prize right then and there (see the hat and mittens) for 25 linden, or you can hunt for it and pay just 1 linden for the same prize.

To the left once you’re inside the shop you’ll see the Bliss counter, and just past that are the currently available group gifts. Among these gifts are the Bliss VIP group gift, a group gift for Fitmesh Fanatics, and of course the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive gift. For each of these groups you’ll need to wear the appropriate group tag. The Bliss VIP group is FREE to join at this time. Additionally, the Fab Free group is also FREE to join. You may even recall Love’s post “Waking Blissfully” in which she showed the current Fab Free group gift at Bliss. So don’t miss out on these FREEbie opportunities, or the fun hunt!

HelaMiyo
Happy Fri-Yay Fab Free! I’m glad you’re here because this week the Designer Friday post is all about HelaMiyo. Generally HelaMiyo is probably best known for their static poses. The shop also has hand fans complete with poses, couples poses, eyes, and hairstyles. Yes, you read that right hair. The HelaMiyo hairstyles are very stylized, much like a lot of their static poses. Most notably there are period hairstyles, which are great for costumes, role-play, and photographs. Speaking of photographs, at the landing point for HelaMiyo, you’ll find a room with a public photo studio that is FREE for everyone to utilize.
HelaMiyo Gifts & Info
In the room with the public photo studio you’ll find several FREE or dollarbie poses for purchase. There is also a pose stand with poses that are also available as gifts in the center of the HelaMiyo store. This photo studio room at HelaMiyo is also where you’ll find the group gifts, and store info. The HelaMiyo group is FREE to join. Additionally, there are two gifts for other groups, one of which is the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. Carson showed this gift in his post “Whatever.” If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, you should be! The Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

As you browse the HelaMiyo store, you’ll wanna check out the table in the room with the hairstyles. There are a few dollarbies to be had.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/8/2017 – Jelly Roll

Jelly Roll Store Front
Happy Friday Night Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has had a great week. This week I get the fun of sharing another Fabulous designer with you, Jelly Roll. It is a ladies clothing store that has a familiar feel to it, even though it hasn’t been part of Second Life for all that long. The style at Jelly Roll is fun, fashionable, and super wearable ladies clothing. Most of the clothing at Jelly Roll I would consider casual every-day styles, but you will find some dressier items as well.
Jelly Roll Events & Gifts
When you enter the Jelly Roll shop you’ll find the past, current, and up-coming events on the wall just inside the entrance. As you browse through the store, you’ll see a sign near a cozy looking sofa directing you to the second floor for group gifts and discounts. The Jelly Roll group is FREE to join. Once upstairs, there’s a group Lucky Letter chair, several group gifts, and a set of group-only discounted tops that are just 10 linden each. In the same area there’s also an exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Speaking of the Fab Free group gift, if you missed it Love and Carson did a cute group post titled “As I Wish”  showing the FREE gift. You won’t want to miss out on these fun dinosaur pajamas!

Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/1/2017 – irrISIStible Shop

irrISIStible Shop
It’s that magical time of the week again when we get to start the weekend with the Fab Free Designer Friday Post! This week’s designer is irrISIStible Shop. The best way I can think of to describe the style of men’s and women’s clothing at irrISIStible is eclectic fantasy. The clothing is very whimsical and would be perfect for role-play or art photography. The irrISIStible Shop main location is set up in a fun and fantastical environment that definitely mirrors the clothing and costumes. I think it’s rare that you find a shop that has such unique style and has plenty of shopping for the men as well as the ladies.
irrISIStible shop Gifts and Events

As you walk inside the main entrance you will find a virtual forest of tree-like vendors. I think this setting lends itself well to the fantastical style of the clothing. To the right you’ll see the current store group gift, which is a lovely floral accented one-piece. The irrISistible group is FREE to join at this time.  Next to the store gift from irrISIStible Shop is the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. This FREE gift is the gorgeous dress shown in the vendor photo. If you’re not already a member of Fabulously Free in SL, why aren’t you? I’t s always FREE to join. Additionally, this same spot is where you’ll find info about other store associated groups and happenings. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 11/17/2017 – roro

roro Gifts & Info
Hello There Fab Free’rs! Today has been the longest Friday ever! Okay maybe not, but it sure felt that way for me. I am so glad to be here with you sharing this week’s Designer Friday post. Today I get to talk about a little shop called roro.  This shop is an eclectic ladies clothing shop with a playful spin on what could be considered bohemian style. Along with the unique clothing style, you’ll also find nail appliers, jewelry, and accessories at roro.

Don’t let the size of the roro shop fool you, there’s lots of shopping to be done. Also there are many opportunities for FREE and inexpensive items. The roro landing point places you near the “Gift” section and the Information area of the shop. There are a couple of Lucky Letter boards, and a Night Prize board, all of which are open for everyone to play. No group is needed. Also in this same area are a ton of inexpensive items. Most of what I saw in this “Gift” area at roro ranged in cost from just 1 linden to 10 linden in cost. Do not forget to check out the desk in the little information corner of the roro shop.

It’s in that little corner where you’ll not only find the info about current and upcoming hunts and events happening at roro, you’ll find the FREE and Exclusive gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This bright and colorful skirt is FREE to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. There are a few additional gifts for other groups in this area also. You simply need to wear the appropriate group tag for each gift. Happy Shopping Fab Free! I hope you have a Fabulous weekend!

Virtue Exterior

Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a great start to the weekend. This week’s Designer Friday post is featuring Virtue. Just as the name might suggest Virtue is a clothing shop where you’ll find modest yet pretty women’s clothing. Most of the styles are what I would call casual to business casual. At the Virtue landing point you’ll see the area is beautifully landscaped without being overwhelming. Once you enter the store you’ll be greeted by the information desk and you’ll see a couple of group gifts waiting for you to the left, and the usual information and an online indicator for the owner of Virtue to the right.
Virtue Gifts and Boards

As I mentioned above you’ll spot two group gifts to the left as you enter the Virtue main store. One of those group gifts is the FREE Fabulously Free in SL exclusive gift.
