Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.

Adoness Info & Gifts
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.  In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.

While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.

A Cynful Celebration **Extremely Limited Time**

Celebrating Cynful
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope all the Mother’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Speaking of celebrations, after a busy weekend I was excited to log into Second Life and learn about Cynful’s Anniversary celebrations. It’s always exciting when a designer is able to celebrate longevity in SL, especially when they share their good fortune with everyone. Cynful is celebrating along with several amazing designers and offering a slew of FREE group gifts to all Cynful group members. The Cynful group is FREE to join. Here’s the only hitch, I have no idea how long these fantastic gifts will be available. I picked out a few to show, but trust me when I say it was hard to pick just a few. Each of the gifts are not only FREE but fabulous. You’ll find two rows of gifts waiting for you on the docks across from the Cynful main location. Don’t forget to wear your Cynful group tag!

These Gifts Could Disappear Fast!

ICONIC is one of the brands helping to celebrate Cynful’s Anniversary. There are actually two gifts from ICONIC, one being the Heidi hairstyle Pru is wearing. I love messy bun hairstyles, but I especially love the heavy bangs of this one. The gift includes a fat pack of color huds, and a hair-base applier for Catwa heads, and one for Lelutka heads.

The pretty jewelry set is the Cynful Anniversary gift from Maxi Gossamer. The set includes bracelets and matching earrings. All the jewelry items can be sized via touch menu. The same touch menu will also let you change the color of certain gems.

Cynful Celebration
Along with the jewelry and hair, I also scored this satiny pink floral print romper from Bueno. This FREE Cynful Anniversary Celebration gift by Bueno is fully mesh, and comes in several body-specific fitted mesh sizes. One thing I want to let you know, when you click the Bueno gift vendor, make sure to accept each of the sizes. At first I thought I’d accidentally clicked it several times and was getting the same item over and over. In reality, it was handing out each size one at a time.

Finally, these Cynful Anniversary gift shoes from Noir couldn’t be more perfect with the Bueno romper. The heels come in the pastel pink color shown and a fitted size for Maitreya feet as well as one for Belleza feet, and of course one for Slink feet.

Seriously, these gifts are gorgeous, and if I thought they’d be available longer, I’d just as excitedly show the remaining gifts. So run, run, run to Cynful. This is not a drill!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Romancing Wertina

Little Red Flowers
Oh Hello! I’ve missed you Fab Free! After a much needed vacation, I’m back and happy to be here. Today I picked up the Fifty Linden Friday offer from Clawtooth and had the opportunity to pick up a few items at Wertina before they close their doors forever. Saving the closing sale for last, this whispy hairstyle from Clawtooth is a FLF must have! The hairstyle comes with an Essentials pack with a wide range of natural hair colors. It also includes a separate color change hud for the flower headband. You can get your copy of this lovely hairstyle for just 50 lindens today only, at Clawtooth.
Winter Romance
It’s always a little bittersweet when a shop leaves Second Life. I just yesterday found out that Wertina will be closing soon. Unfortunately I do not know when the actual closing date is. In the  mean time however, everything at the shop is marked down considerably. I did a bit of shopping yesterday evening and most of what I saw was priced between 10 and 35 lindens. I picked up a small handful of items, including this sweet floral nightgown. This little mesh dress is just 5 lindens and comes in standard mesh sizes. There are a few colors to pick from as well. At Wertina you’ll find women’s fashion with everything from jackets and shoes to dresses. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to grab some great bargains.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Fallin’ For TP7 and zOOm

TP7
Oh Hello Fab Free! I am totally fallin’ for the FREE gifts at the current round of The Project Se7en paired with this group gift dress from zOOm! All puns aside, there are some fabulous freebies to be had in celebration of TP7′s anniversary. If you happen to follow me on Flickr you’ve probably seen these photos up for a few days now. I apologize that it took me so long to get this post done, it’s a big one!

zOOm it to Me

This bright floral dress is a FREE group gift from zOOm. The zOOm designs group is just 99 linden to join and there is more than one group gift currently available. Perfect for spring and even a casual Easter gathering, the floral print dress has a texture change hud that lets you choose between 8 variations of this beautifully busy floral print. The gift also includes the following body-specific sizes.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Belleza Isis/Freya/Venus
  • Slink Hourglass/Physique
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

TP7 Close

Gifts at The Project Se7en

Since there are so many FREE gifts at this anniversary round of TP7 (and I’m only showing a few) I’ll do my best to talk about them starting from top to bottom, or in this case head to toe! First, you will need to join The Project Se7en group and wear the tag to get the gifts. As you travel around the event you’ll see the celebratory cakes at most booths. Just click the cake at each booth and your gift will be automatically sent to you. First, I love this hairstyle from Sintiklia. It’s a fitted bento hairstyle that comes in the brown-pink color Pru is wearing, and a black-white version (not shown). Each color also comes in 2 sizes.

Next up, what’s not to like about these adorable glasses. Love even commented on my Flickr photo about how cute they are! These glasses are the FREE TP7 gift from BADa. If needed they can be sized up or down with a touch menu.

The dainty nose ring Pru has in is also a FREE gift at TP7. This one is from Tableau Vivant. The Tableau Vivant gift is a set of nose rings in gold and silver. There is a left side ring and a right side ring in both metal tones.

The slight gradient to Pru’s lip color is due to the FREE TP7 gift from Wednesday. I like that it is partially transparent. This single color applier works with Catwa heads only.

For the next and final gift in this post, you’ll need to take a closer look at Pru’s feet in the top photo. I love these sandals! The “Carved Camellia Clogs” are the FREE TP7 gift from Konpeitou. Just in case you are confused, like I was at first, you’ll need to wear the shoe layer that matches the height/position of your foot. These cute shoes come with a color change hud as well so you can match the straps to your outfit, and change the carved part from plain to colored.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/14/2017 – No Cabide

No Cabide Storefront

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has enjoyed the start of the weekend so far. I know I am. For those that celebrating the Easter holiday, happy Easter just in case I don’t “see” you again before then! Thanks for coming by, this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday is a little shop called No Cabide. The first time I recall having encountered No Cabide is at one of the annual Cart Sales at The Wash. It’s another one of those great shops that had grown by leaps and bounds.
Gifts @No Cabide
No Cabide sells a wide variety of casual mesh and applier women’s clothing and shoes. I would describe the style of the clothing as both sexy and casual. Just inside the entrance you’ll find the “circulation” desk and the most recent new releases. If you venture to the right and look for some shiny heart shaped balloons you’ll find a wall of gorgeous group gifts. This is also where the pretty dress No Cabide has out as their FREE exclusive Fab Free group gift can be found. You may remember seeing it in Serena’s post “ It’s Friday I’m in Love.”  Of course there are several other group gifts, including a few for the FREE to join No Cabide group. Also, while you’re shopping you might spot a few piles of pretty Easter eggs scattered about. Don’t mistake those for simple decor, these eggs are priced between 1 and 15 lindens each and contain cute holiday themed clothing items. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

A Grown Up Easter Dress

Spring Lace
Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe we are already almost halfway through April?! This is the time of year I always want to add cute dresses and pretty girlish things to my wardrobe. Maybe it’s a left over impulse from years of Easter dresses as a little girl. BYRNE‘s April group gift does feel a little bit like a pretty Easter dress, a grown-up Easter dress. It is pretty, and sweet with lace and flowers, just like an Easter dress should be. I especially like the optional neck scarf. To get your FREE copy of this lovely lace dress, just join the BYRNE group. The group is FREE to join. You can then check the past notices, or head over to the BYRNE main location.  The gift includes standard mesh sizes and matching alphas. Also, at the shop you can purchase past group gifts if you missed them when they were released. Most of the previous gifts are priced at 50 or 60 lindens.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Head –  Lelutka – Aria

The Easter Egg Hunt at Petite Mort

Snapshot_005

Hello Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t already heard, Petite Mort’s Easter Egg Hunt started today! Love and I had fun with this fantastic hunt last year, so we were both thrilled to hear it was happening again this year. Talk about the perfect opportunity to amp up your spring/summer wardrobe with seriously cute items from Petite Mort. Love and I also took the opportunity to spend an afternoon catching up while trying on all our pretty new clothes. There may or may not have been a little girl gossip going on as well. I’d tell you what Love said to get me to make that face, but it’s  not the sort of thing a lady should repeat! Snapshot_001

Each egg is just 10 lindens each, and there are 7 total eggs to find at the Petite Mort main location. Just outside the shop is a sign with information about the hunt, including a prize key.  Also, there’s a little rabbit near the sign who will gladly gift you an Easter basket to carry while you hunt!  The Petite Mort Easter Egg Hunt will last from today until April 30th. Happy Hunting!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/07/2017 – Satus Inc

Satus Inc
Hello Again Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by. Today’s Fabulous Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Satus Inc. If you’re not already familiar with Satus Inc, they have been in Second Life for a little while now and while they are probably best known for their furniture and gadgets, they also design mesh clothing. Truth be told there is a little bit of everything to be had at Satus Inc making it a shop with something for everyone. The landing point will put you in front of the latest group gifts.
Satus Inc Group Gifts
Each gift on this wall of gifts has a helpful hover text that tells you which group tag you need to claim your FREE gift.  The Satus Inc group has a minuscule join fee of 25 linden. Most of the items do appear to be for the ladies, however there are some fun gadgets and gifts for the men as well. Additionally there is a single Midnight Madness board. This is also where you’ll find the Satus Inc gift exclusively for Fab Free group members. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. If you head up the stairs from this spot you’ll find the ladies clothing along with a few menswear items, and some furniture pieces.
Satus Inc Sales & Offers
On the main floor next to the stairs you’ll find the sales items and special offers at Satus Inc. Through the rest of the shop you’ll find mostly small builds, furniture with poses, and gadgets of all kinds. I would highly recommend taking a moment to stop by Satus Inc and check out all they have to offer. The group gifts alone would definitely be worth the effort.  Happy Shopping!
