Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/16/2018 – La Bella Boutique

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in a previous Designer of the Week type post, we’ve been adding some new members to our Fabulous Designers team. This week I’m happy to share with you La Bella Boutique. Just as the name might suggest, this shop has girly-girl written all over it. La Bella Boutique is self described as an “everything shapes and couture store.” Which I feel is an accurate description. There does seem to be an eclectic mix of everything from casual tops and dresses to evening wear and even some tattoos. Most (if not all) clothing items did appear to be mesh, with of course applier tattoos. The store is also quite girlishly decorated for Christmas, it’s a virtual pink winter wonderland complete with a menagerie of fantasy and woodland creatures frolicking around a giant pink Christmas tree. To me this just adds to the shopping experience in a fun way. Along with all the fabulous finds, there are quite a few opportunities at La Bella Boutique to score some free goodies.

Like many shops this time of year, La Bella Boutique does have an Advent calendar. It is for the La Bella Boutique group only, however the group is free to join. I’m not positive if past gifts are available or not, but even so there are still quite a few days left on this 24 day Advent calendar. Speaking of group gifts, there are tons and tons and tons and oh my so many La Bella Boutique group gifts available. The top photo in the above collage shows the row after row of La Bella Boutique group gifts. Additionally, there are several group only Lucky Letter chairs. Finally, there are the store’s associated group gifts for members of other groups like Fabulously Free in SL. The Fab Free gift is of course free, and if you’re not already a Fab Free group member the group is free to join also. I hope you enjoy what is left of this Fabulous weekend. Happy Shopping! Also, before I forget, as you can see in the top photo, La Bella Boutique is looking for female bloggers. If you’ve got your own blog and are interested, there’s a blogotex inside the shop where you can fill out an application. Good luck!

Hello There Fab Free! Are you feeling that holiday rush yet? I know I am! I needed to take a minute, relax, and unwind. A favorite way to do that is to find a comfy spot to sit, pick a good book to read, and sip a warm cup of tea (or coffee).  DE.Boutique recently sent out this cozy over-sized sweater dress to their Subscriber group. Also, I took a little time to pop over to Fameshed and pick up the pile of free gifts waiting under the Christmas tree. For today, I’m excited to share with you the Fameshed gifts from MINA and Contraption. Keep reading for more info about each of these fantastic finds!

The Dress – This wine colored gradient sweater dress was sent out earlier this week to the DE.Boutique Subsciber group. It is called the Zoe dress, and it comes int several mesh sizes. I do want to point out that I am unsure if new subscribers will receive the free gift of not. I did try unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the DE.Boutique Subscriber, and the gift was not redelivered. However I would still encourage anyone to stop by DE.Boutique and join their Subscriber group to be sure and receive any future gifts. Also, check your inventory, if you’re already a DE.Boutique Subscriber, you may have received it.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ebody, Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Hair – This cute puffed up side pony is the free Fameshed group gift by MINA. The Fameshed group is free to join, and you’ll need to wear the group tag to get the gifts. You’ll find a whole pile of presents under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This hairstyle from MINA comes in a “browns” color pack, but I have to say the color range is quite broad, there are very dark almost black shades, and very deep auburn red shades along side several brunettes.

The Glasses – I love these unique glasses with their rectangular lenses. They are the free Fameshed group gift by Contraption available under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from preset colors to change the color of each lens individually, as well as the frame. You will need to wear the Fameshed group tag to get the gift, however the Fameshed group is free to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

It’s Too Early for Wrapping Presents

Too Early
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! My the blog is busy this weekend! I’m so excited to see all the Fabulous posts, and I’m always glad you’re here reading them. It seems like Pru might spend the month of December in her pajamas! All jokes aside, sounds kind of fantastic if you ask me.  It’s getting to that time when I find myself either staying up way too late or getting up way too early to wrap the Christmas presents, so this photo is not too far fetched from my reality. Hah!  Vanilla Bae put out their adorable Sally onesies in a cute star pattern as a group gift, and I do not want to take them off. Also, HopScotch sent out this adorable Christmas tree headband to their Subscriber group. I don’t know about you, but I am definitely here for fun festive accessories. Keep reading for more details.

The Onesie – Alright so one big feature of these jammies that I did not mention above is that they are strip-able! Simply by clicking them the wearer can strip themselves, set an auto strip feature, or pick who can strip them by adding other avatars to an access list, or choosing to have the strip feature set public. Additionally there are 2 ways you can pick up this almost free gift from Vanilla Bae. The set is available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. Otherwise, you can head over to Vanilla Bae in world and pick up the gift for free with your group tag. If you’re not already a group member, there is a one time join fee of 199 linden. Included with this gift is a texture change hud that lets you pick from red with stars, dark blue with stars, or pink with stars. It also has several options for the color of the buttons.

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

The Headband – I love cool Subscriber gifts! No matter what, they are always free. This cute Christmas tree headband was sent out a few days ago to the HopScotch Subscriber group. To be sure this gift is still available I went over to HopScotch myself and unsubscribed from their Subscriber, then re-subscribed. The headband was delivered to me the moment I rejoined! This gift can be manually resized using the edit menu.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hello There Fab Free’rs! The best kind of hunt in Second Life is a free one with lots of designers! The SLF&O hunt recently started, and it’s both free and has quite a few participants. You won’t want to miss this one. I picked up this gorgeous Asian inspired robe at Belle Epoque as part of the SLF&O hunt. The robe comes in a Maitreya Lara fit only. It’s also absolutely free, you just gotta find it! The hunt object for this hunt is a fall leaf.

Recently Love sent me a teleport to Moon hair to slap their Midnight Madness board. I’m so glad she did, I love this hairstyle with this robe. This extra long flowing hairstyle is the free MM board prize at Moon. There’s no need to join any group or wear any tag to participate. Also, the prize hairstyle is a full fat pack with all the color huds included.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Rose Red

The Succubus
Hello There Fab Free, I hope your weekend has been fabulous. This slinky red dress by Scandalize had me feeling darkly romantic. It’s the free group gift at the Vanity Event. I paired it with this cool 10 linden skull septum piercing by Venge that I picked up at The Mad Circus Gacha. Keep reading for more information about these two fabulous finds, or scroll down to the credits to the where and how much. ❤

The Dress – This sexy red dress is the free Vanity Event group gift by Scandalize. You’ll find it waiting just inside the entrance to the event. Just join the free-to-join Vanity Event group, and click the gift vendor. The dress comes in the solid matte color shown, and a red glittery version.

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

The Piercing – I think this septum piercing by Venge added just the right amount of sinister to Pru’s look. The little skull has red jeweled eyes, and a red gemstone fangs. My apologies, my photo doesn’t convey either of those details. This cool accessory is just 10 linden at The Mad Circus Gacha Fair.

Hello October

Hello October
Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs, and a special hello to the month of October! Sings “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” Honestly, October is my December, and Halloween is my Christmas. Alright, I won’t subject you to any more of the thought of me singing, but I am still excited about the group gifts from Safira and HEC I have to share with you.

The Top – Love reminded me about this recent free group gift out at Safira. She really knows my style so well! The top has a satin-like look to it and is plain in the front with this cutely spooky skull cutout pattern in the back. This cute top comes with a color change hud with quite a few solid color options. The Safira group is free to join at this time, and there are quite a few group gifts available.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink Hourglass

The Bracelet – One of the most recent group gifts at HEC is this cute bracelet. The letters spell the word HOT which gives this accessory a little sass! This group gift at HEC comes in a left and a right so you can wear it on either wrist, or both. It’s also able to be resized and is unisex. The bracelet has a color change hud with the ability for you to choose a custom color for the letters and the band. The HEC group has a one time join fee of 25 linden.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hello hello from Cloud 9! Well from a cloud anyway. haha I hope everyone is doing well. I’m excited to share with you this gorgeous Lucky Letter Board dress from Apple May Designs along with a beautiful group gift hairstyle from Opale. I took the photo from the back because I felt like the back of the dress and the back of the hairstyle were quite nice. I love the long understated black bow detail in the dress. I also thought the little wisps of hair in the back of this long hairstyle were a nice touch. Keep reading for the details on how to get each of these fabulous finds.

The Hair – The hairstyle Pru is wearing in the above photo is Sofa by Opale. There is a free group gift version of Sofa at Opale that includes 3 color versions. There is a blonde, a dark blonde, and a brunette color with the pretty pink and blue color fades. At this time the Opale group is free to join. The Leo hairstyle shown below is another free group gift currently available at Opale. I also saw two group gift headbands.

OPALE GROUP GIFT

The Dress – I think this sweet slip of a dress by Apple May Designs is really pretty. There are two ways you can score this dress for free or very inexpensively. Apple May Designs group members can participate in the Lucky Letter boards. There are two, one for each of the colors shown in the ad below. If you don’t want to wait for your letter to pop up and have a few lindens to spare, AMD group members can also purchase this dress for just 49 linden. There are also previous AMD group-only specials available at that price, just be sure to wear your AMD group tag. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden if you are not already a group member.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/16/2018 – Chaotic!

Hello hello Fab Free! Remember when I said recently I wasn’t ready for the weekend. That was an understatement. Now I am not ready for it to end! Either way, here we are, and I’m glad for it. This week’s Designer of the Week is Chaotic!. Let me just start by saying this store is larger than it looks! The Chaotic! shop is a ladies clothing boutique. Among the pink flowers, unicorns, and bright pink, green, and black decor you’ll find a truly eclectic mix of casual and what I would call “club wear” clothing. Much of what I saw did appear to be mesh and come in quite a few body specific sizes. If you’re looking for something casual but with a little bit of sass and sexiness, Chaotic! just might have what you’re looking for. There are also quite a few opportunities to score some free or heavily discounted items, which of course we love!

While you’re shopping keep an eye out for the Discount Roulette boards. I spotted three, but I could have missed one. The Discount Roulette works so that you pay full price for the featured item, and then are automatically refunded a random portion for a special discount. You might even get the item for free! I also spotted two Midnight Mania board with very low targets. One is for everyone, no group needed, and the other is for Chaotic! group members only. Don’t fret, the Chaotic! group is free to join. There are also lucky letter boards, and an entire section of group gifts. The group gift section has gifts for various store associated groups. This is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to Fab Free group members. Don’t for get that Fab Free group tag! All in all, there is plenty to make Chaotic! a unique and fun shopping experience!

One in a Melon

One in a Mellon
Hello Fab Free’rs! We survived Monday! I think that in itself is worth celebrating. I don’t know about you, but I like to treat myself with some shopping, especially when the shopping doesn’t really cost much. Right now you can pick up a set of adorable summertime themed tanks like the one Pru has on for free with your group tag at Hot Elegant Clothing (HEC). This group gift comes in a few different sizes, and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars. There’s also a fantastic color/texture change hud that not only allows to pick from several preset color/image options, it also lets you choose the opacity of the top, and toggle on or off the full bright option. I love the version Pru has on. It says “One in a Melon.” What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good pun. To get yours simply head over to HEC and join the in-world group. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your HEC group tag.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
