FabFree Designer Features: Vips Creations

Hey FabFree! It’s been a hot minute since I did a FabFree Designer Features post, but I’m back today with a feature on Vips Creations. Vips Creations specializes in women’s mesh clothing, and they have many elegant and beautiful designs to choose from.

FabFree Group Gift

The current FabFree group gift at Vips Creations is the Louissa outfit in silver and white. It includes a dress and shoes. Many outfits Vips Creations sells include an outfit and shoes combo, so it’s a lovely set. The FabFree group is always free to join. To join the group, copy and paste the following link into SL: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about.

Store Group

VIP Creations also has exclusive gifts for their VIP group. The group gifts change every couple of months. The group only costs 2L, so it’s a great investment. The current gift up on the wall is the “Karen Spring” outfit, which includes a dress with red poppies on it and red shoes.

Other Freebie Groups’ Gifts

There are a number of additional free gifts at Vips Creations, if you join various freebie groups posted near their VIP group gift. Below is a list of these groups’ gifts currently available with information about the groups. Most of these groups are free to join, but some of them have a small join fee. It is worth these small fees to get access to great gifts across the grid.

Lucky Boards

VIP Creations also has many lucky boards to play at their store, and they are free for all to play (no group required). The lucky boards contain rotating prizes for Mesh and Classic avatars, so hopefully theres some free goodies in there for everyone!

Have a wonderful evening, FabFree!

Wrap me in Bows

071422 - Wrap me in Bows 01

FabFree @ Fifteen Continues…

Today I am bringing two items from Fabulously Free’s Birthday Event. The first is this beautiful set of bow jewelry that I am wearing and the second is the cheerful flower field I’m standing in. And now that I’ve called them “first” and “second” I’m going to confuse you and talk about the second one first! Dr. Seuss is in the house.

  • .Lunaria. is the location for this fun little tulip field. It is there fabulous FREE gift for FabFree at Fifteen. The gift comes with both a static and animated version. It is all mesh, copy/mod and only 1 Li at its given size. Don’t forget your FabFree group tag to get it!
  • The bow jewelry that I am wearing are all from Beloved Jewelry by Kimbra McMillan. If you have never seen Beloved Jewelry, you are in for a treat. The amount of detail and customization options that go into her work is incredible. Let me break these down for you:
    • The spine piercings are actually part of the Miix 69L Sale, and are at her mainstore. I added them because I thought they would really finish the look. It fits Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink and comes in large and small versions.
    • The earrings are the L$15 item for FabFree @ Fifteen and unrigged. They come in two sizes and two versions. I should add you can change the metal and gem textures with one HUD and the tint/color of the bows with another on all these jewelry items.

071422 - Wrap me in Bows 02

  • Two more…
    • The choker is the discounted exclusive item, and only L$25!!! It is unrigged and comes with two sizes each in two different versions.
    • Finally, the FREE item is a set of these darling hair clips, again unrigged and in two versions. Check out the one I’m wearing here:

A quiet place

A quiet place

Good evening, Fabulous Readers. As I’m sure you already know, Second Life’s 19th Birthday is going strong and there are many many free gifts to be had at the Shop & Hop. Sadly, there aren’t many offerings this round for the men but I did ferret out a good gift from Vagrant. You may be forgiven for thing Vagrant has nothing for men as the booth shows only women’s clothing. But, at the main store there are some very nice things for the guys. While the selection is small, the quality is high and I thoroughly enjoy spending my free Shop & Hop 500L Gift Card there. 

Simply collect your free store credit at the Shop and Hop booth then follow the LM to the main store. Right now, everything in the store is 50% off but it still allows you to use the store credit! ( That may change quickly as the 50% sale was scheduled to end yesterday but was still going at the time of this post) I was able to pick up several things including the pants, top and hat I’m sporting in the photograph. The gift does not mention an expiration date but I wouldn’t tempt fate. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

        Top + Pants + Hat – Vagrant – Edward Sweater + Combat Patch Pants + Jackie Hat – FREE/0L – Free 500L Store credit available @ SL19B Shop & Hop

In the wind

In the wind

Hey FabFam, I know it’s late ( in my part of the world anyway) so I’m going to make this really quick.  As ya’ll know, the 2022 Hair Fair is going strong and hopefully you’ve visited. There are some awesome designers participating this year and many booths have a little gift for us. The best gift, in my opinion, is this lovely photo – op hair from No_Match.

This is “No Press” and you can grab it for free at the No_Match booth. The hair is static but it’s perfect for pictures. Which, you know… we do a LOT of! 🙂  Plus, you get a full fatpack of colors with No Press too. 

I wanted to sweeten my post up a bit, so I rummaged around on the Marketplace and found this cute little flower crown for just 10L! This the “Honey Flower Crown” from Sweet Intoxication. It’s an older build but it still looks very nice and I’m picky about such things. But this one is staying in my closet.

The Hair Fair runs until July 10th so don’t delay!

Monday Adventures

Monday Adventures

Hello and happy Monday, FabFam! Wow, what a weekend. I finally made it all the way through the enormous SL19B Shop and Hop. Twenty SIMs is nothing to sneeze at even if it was so much fun. And I don’t even want to talk about all the unboxing!  So let’s get started with one of my top favorite gift from the whole event.

This is the “Emilia” outfit from Zenith. (@ The Shop & Hop Location) This has always been one of my go-to designers and this lovely set is no disappointment. The top, sleeves and skirt are all separate pieces for more mix and matching. The build is top notch and you get a HUD with four different colors to choose from. So you’re looking sharp no matter what you pick!

Birthday Surprise - Outfit

I am pleasantly surprised by these wonderful SLB19 free gifts from Alter, Essenz, and Rawr!  I was able to put together an outfit that is perfect for any birthday celebration.

The lovely dress by Alter can be dressed up for a night out or paired with some flats for a casual brunch date.  I’m a sucker for anything floral so of course these platforms from Essenz will be added to my collection of favs along with these classic earrings by Rawr!.

Hello hello, FabFam! I may look relaxed in this snapshot but I am anything but! As you all must know by now, The Second Life 19th Birthday is going strong and has 20 SIMS this time! It’s huuuuuge! And that means it has a ton of free gifts for us to collect and open. I am up to my pointy little ears in gifts, ya’ll! There are so many cool things to show off I don’t know where to start. So let’s just jump in!

This dress… I flat out love this dress! This is “Elena” from Salt and Pepper. The lace… the shine… it makes my heart happy. It’s just beautifully made, the lace is SO detailed and lovely, I just can’t get over it. Plus you get a full fatpack of colors for both the base fabric and the belt and sleeve caps. Salt and Pepper really knocked it out of the ball park with this gift.

Sizes Included

  • Legacy + Perky
  • Maitreya + Petite
  • Reborn

My new sandals are another big winner today. These are the “Enola” leather flats from Hilly Haalan, a designer we already love. The flats come with another huuuuge fatpack of options to change the feather, the chain, the beads and the body of the shoes. This is the kind of gift we always hope to get at a big event like SL19B! Thank you so much, Hilly!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Erika
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn
  • SLink

The Second Life 19th Birthday Celebration runs until July 10th so you’ve got plenty of time to explore the whole event! And if you want a jump on some of the great gifts, check out these posts right here on FabFree. Here, and here, here here, here ( I hope I didn’t miss anyone…)
