Fab Free Designer of the Week – E. Vary & Mangula


Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s time for another designer of the week post. This one is a little different in that we kind of get a two for one deal! The Mangula and E.Vary brands are created by the same designer. The E.Vary shop offers a range of skins, shapes, and cosmetic enhancements for female avatars along with a few mesh and applier clothing items. The Mangula shop offers unique clothing for female avatars. At both shops you’ll find some great gifts and of course shopping finds. The E.Vary shop is a bright and open shop, where the Mangula shop has a surreal cloud-like atmosphere. Both stores have similar information desk areas with info about the store group, social media, and associated groups and events. These shops also share an in world group, the * E.Vary * group will get you group gifts and notices for both the shops. Currently the group is free to join.

At the E. Vary shop there are several free group gifts consisting of female skins and cosmetics. You’ll need the group tag for these, however as I mentioned before, the group is free to join at this time. Over at the Mangula shop you’ll find several other group gifts such as the free Fabulously Free group gift. You’ll need your Fab Free group tag to get this cropped top gift at Mangula. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Each of the gifts in this area of the Mangula store require a specific group tag. Finally you’ll see a few gift boxes hanging out with a pair of star balloons. There’s no group needed for these free gifts however you will need to be a member of the store’s subscriber group. Click the gift, wait while it verifies your subscriber status, and once verified your free gift will be sent to you. Each of these freebies also appear to be ladies clothing. Happy Shopping Fab Free, and I hope you enjoy the up-coming weekend.

Come Have a Drink With Me


You Need a Drink

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I got dressed up to go out, and a few of the free group gifts at Casse Lustre gave me the perfect outfit for a fun night out. The Casse Lustre group is free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available. I picked this halter style dress, and off-the-shoulder faux fur coat to share with you. You’ll find the group gifts at Casse Lustre waiting near the entrance to the store.

The Dress – This swanky little halter style dress by Casse Lustre comes in the black version shown as well as an equally pretty white version. Both color versions come in a single unspecified mesh size. To get your copy, simply wear your Casse Lustre group tag and click the gift vendor.

The Coat – When I was in college I had a friend who was a fashion design major and she always referred to this sort of shaggy fake fur as “muppet” and I’ve never been able to think of it as anything else. It makes me laugh, and I love it. This off-the-shoulder fur coat at Casse Lustre is another free group gift. It also comes in a single mesh size, and includes a color change hud that lets you pick from eight preset colors (four dark, and four pastel).

Here are the details!

XOXO

 

XOXO
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It seems to me like February is starting out with a bang, or in this case maybe a BYRNE! BYRNE had their February group gift out super early, and as always there is a men’s gift that matches the gift for the ladies. This long sleeve off-the-shoulder dress was too cute to pass up, and definitely too cute to not share with you. Though it wears really well on its own, I chose to pair it with a pair of black leggings and some sandals for a more casual look. This super cute XO dress by BYRNE also comes in a white version with black lettering. The BYRNE group is free to join, and you can get this free gift in the past group notices, or by visiting the main store.

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

WellMade Billionaire


WellMade Billionaire

Hey There Fab Free’rs! Did your weekend go by as quickly as mine did? My week seems to be getting away from me as well.  I did however get to do some freebie shopping over the weekend thanks to the gifts at the Paradise Event. This new-to-me event was pointed out to me by this super awesome guy in my life, thanks Blue for the heads up! At the Paradise Event most participating designers have a gift or two at their booth ranging in cost from zero to ten lindens each. No group is required, simply purchase the gift for the set price. I picked up the gift by WellMade along with the gift by Beauty Passions. The Paradise Event gifts aside for a moment, how cool is this black and white limousine?! It’s absolutely free at Billionaire Motors, no group needed.

WellMade Paradise Event Gift – This dress by WellMade is a free gift at the Paradise Event. It comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from 8 preset colors, including 3 metallic options. The faux leather-like appearance of the fabric with the lacey texture gave me major ’80s glam rock vibes. I couldn’t help but channel my inner Tawny Kitaen! This free gift comes in several sizes and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars.
Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (single size), Slink (Single Size)

Manicured

Beauty Passions Paradise Event Gift – Beauty Passions has this pretty mesh manicure out as their Paradise Event gift. I thought the pale pearl color was just right for my ’80s fashionista fantasy! It is just 10 lindens and includes a set of mesh nails for Maitreya hands and one Slink hands. There’s no group needed for this beautiful inexpensive gift.

Billionaire Motors Free Gift – Finally, the Limousine! So I heard through the Fab Free grapevine that Billionaire Motors had a cool free car available with no group needed. Of course, I had to check it out. There is indeed a very posh looking black car freebie at Billionaire Motors. However this limousine really caught my attention. It too is free to everyone, no group required. Not only is this limo beautiful to look at, it’s fully functional. You can drive this baby! It comes with a free Billionaire Motors men’s jacket, and a driving hud. There’s also a touch menu with lots of options. To get your copy head over to Billionaire Motors and look for the “Free Gift” sign, both free cars are waiting in a boxes with big gold bows.

Here are the details!

The Vordun


The Vordun

Welcome back Fab Free’rs! I’m super excited you’re here. I’m always excited you’re here, but I have a fun post to share with you today that I hope you’ll enjoy. Along with showing off the sassy halter dress Glitter has out as their free Fabulously Free in SL group gift, I wanted to share with you a fun destination I recently discovered. The Vordun is a fully functional art museum and gallery with a well curated collection complete with a detailed audio experience that you can visit and enjoy for free. It was on a whim that I ended up here on a date not too long ago, and it was genuinely a fun and interesting way to spend time with someone in Second Life without going to a club or wading through crowds at an event. Not to mention, The Vordun is a beautifully done venue.

The Vordun Lobby
As you enter the building, The Vordun’s lobby is bright with the skylight overhead. One either side of the room you’ll see headsets you can click to allow the hud to attach so you can enjoy the audio presentation that goes along with your walk through the museum. The hud also attaches automatically as you enter further into the room. There are clear detailed instructions on how to use the hud and hear the information about each of the unique pieces of art in the museum. You can also take a look at the map on the wall to get a feel for how big the building really is.
The Vordun Gift Shop

You can choose to follow through the guided tour, which I’d recommend if you have a little free time and enjoy learning about each of the artworks. Alternately you can of course browse through The Vordun at your leisure. I found the exhibit about block printing was my personal favorite. There’s also a really interesting section about a global postcard project where people send postcards to another random participant anywhere in the world. As you round out your visit to The Vordun, there’s even a cute giftshop where you can buy different gifts or souvenirs to remember your visit. Once you’ve had your fill of the museum, I’d also suggest visiting the grounds. There is shopping, and if you follow the path away from The Vordun, you’ll end up at a cute little frozen yogurt shop where you can sit and have a treat while enjoying the scenery.

Glitter at The Vordun
Lastly, if you’re interested in Pru’s outfit for this post, it does as I mentioned include the most recent Fab Free group gift by Glitter. This beautiful copper/bronze colored halter dress is free to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at the Glitter main store. If you’re not already a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, what are you waiting for?! The group is always free to join. This pretty little dress comes in several sizes, and has a hud that allows you to switch the skirt from short to long, choose whether the top is opaque or transparent or “remove” the dress entirely by making it completely transparent.
Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Fitmesh Maitreya Lara, Fitmesh Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Fitmesh EBody, Fitmesh Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Fitmesh TMP

In the Quiet of the Afternoon


In the Quiet of the Afternoon
Hello Fab Free’rs! Happy weekend! I’m so glad you’re here. For this post I have the most booty-licious sweater dress ever and the cutest chair and table set to share with you. Keep reading for all the details.

The Dress – The pretty sweater dress Pru has on is one of several free group gifts available at Ellnique. The Ellnique group is free to join. I love the long sleeves and high neck of this dress, it also happens to be very shapely. I don’t mind telling you I changed Pru’s shape a little for this dress, her curves came out a little too dangerous when she first put it on. This dress definitely has a corseted look to it. This and the other group gifts can be found upstairs.
Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Furniture – I’m not sure what took me this long to pick up the latest group gift at Kraftwork, it’s cute as can be! This “Gipsy” set includes the chair, table, and lantern shown. Each of the 3 items is copy so you can rez out multiple. I love the bright colors and playful floral patterns. This set is one of quite a few group gifts, all of which are furniture, landscaping, or other home related items. The Kraftwork group is just 25 linden to join, and the beautiful gifts are well worth the effort.

Here are the details!

Before I Had My Coffee

Before I Had Coffee
Oh Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all survived the holidays so far. I for one do not want to see let alone eat another slice of pie for a very long time. Otherwise I’m doing pretty well. I picked up gifts by Vinyl from two different events that really go well together. I also picked up a pretty new group gift skin at PumeC. All in all, not a bad way to start the weekend!

The Shirt – This tied graphic tee is one of the free gifts I picked up by Vinyl. This gift is available for free at the Shop & Hop event. No group is needed. The top reads “Dear Santa I’m Sorry For What I Said Before I Had Coffee.” Well I do not mind admitting that there are definitely moments when I should make such an apology myself, and not just to Santa! The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is just too cute to pass up.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Shoes – I think these crochet red chucks by Vinyl are adorable. They are a free gift available to everyone who visits the Vinyl booth at Uber. No group is needed for this gift, simply click the sign that says “XMas Gift” and the chucks will be sent to you. The shoes come in a few sizes and are every bit as cute on as they look in the photo.
Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

The Skin – The Skin Pru is wearing is a free group gift at PumeC. Not only does it come with a Genus head applier, but a full fat-pack of skin tones with appliers are included as well as a set of base skins. The PumeC group has a one time join fee of 399 linden to join, and there are quite a few past group gifts still available. Also, there’s a second December group gift skin available, and a promise of a possible third December gift still to come!
Appliers Included: Body Appliers – Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Omega /  Head Applier – Genus

Just a Delicate Snowflake

Delicate Snowflake

Hello dear Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I said thank you for being here, so thank you so much! Really, there’d be no point to the Fab Free blog without you. That said, I’m happy I get to be here too! I still cannot get over how much there is going on this Holiday Season. I don’t know why, it is probably like this every year, but each year it always seems pleasantly overwhelming. So many gifts and inexpensive finds, so little time! haha Yep, it’s a good problem to have. For today’s post I picked up a few gifts at Redeux and I couldn’t resist another stop at The Cart Sale. As always, I’ll have all the information below.

P.S. Redeux ends on the 21rst so don’t wait! 

The Romper – This little black romper with ruffled shorts is the free Redeux group gift by The Forge. Simply wear your Redeux group tag and click the gift waiting at The Forge’s event booth. The Redeux group is free to join if you’re not a member. This cute little number comes in a single unlabeled mesh size. It fit Pru’s Maitreya Lara body almost perfectly, so that would be my “size” guess.

The Facial Piercings – Axix also has a gift at this round of Redeux. Their free gift is this set of unique triangle shaped facial piercings positioned below the eyes and under the lower lip. They come in the gold color shown, and can be resized and positioned. I would definitely consider them to be a unisex accessory. Again you will need the Redeux group tag to get this gift.

The Snowflake Tattoos – These pretty snowflake upper body tattoos are one of 10 linden items available at The Cart Sale by InnerJoy Love Tattoos. The tattoo comes in an Omega applier, a Maitreya applier, and a classic system tattoo layer. I love when designers continue to include classic layers with their applier products!

Here are the details, enjoy!

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!
