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)

Here are the details!

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

Let’s Do the Time Warp Again


After Hours

Hello There Fab Free! It’s good to be here. I feel like I have had such a weird week so far, though I couldn’t tell you what specifically was weird about it. Thankfully I have been able to do some shopping therapy, Fab Free style! Belle Epoque has this cute wiggle dress out as one of their group gifts, and I picked up a beautiful upper body tattoo inexpensively at Speakeasy for a modern pinup look. I hope you enjoy it!

The Dress – I love the mix of retro and modern present in this dress by Belle Epoque. The fabric has an almost latex like shine to it. This fun dress is a free group gift to Belle Epoque group members. The Belle Epoque group has a one time join fee of just 10 linden. This dress comes in a single Maitreya fit only.
Modern Pinup

The Tattoo – This beautiful floral upper body tattoo is just 50 lindens at the Speakeasy main store. I love how the beautiful roses come around the shoulders and connect in a bow. Also, I think the sphynx kitties near the shoulders are adorable! The tattoo comes in an Omega applier only with 3 opacity options.

Here are the details!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 01/22/2019 – Sweet Willows

 

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I have another Fabulous designer to share with you today. This time I have the joy of telling you all about Sweet Willows. Sweet Willows is a small but cute shop that caters to both child and adult female avatars. Most of the clothing is casual daywear and sleepwear. There is a small section of toddler and baby clothing, and even a small number of costumes for roleplay, costume parties, or cosplay. I also spotted some very cute adult footie pajamas! The above photo is the main desk. There you can click the little sign being held by the cute corgi to join the Sweet Willows store group. There are also 3 free gifts waiting next to the dancing Storm Trooper. No group tag is required.

To the left of the presents is where you can find the free gift by Sweet Willows for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is free to join if you’re not already a member. Also, if you’re interested, you can look to the right of the desk and see the Sweet Willows store associated groups and events. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Good Vibes Only


Good Vibes Only

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is doing well. For today’s post I’m excited to share with you a completely free skin by Insol for Genus Project head wearers. Additionally, Pru is wearing the Education for Kenya Hunt prize at Meowhi. I really do like the message on this halter top by Meowhi. In my opinion we just don’t have time for anything other than good vibes!

The Skin – So once again Love pointed me in the direction of this gorgeous freebie. Insol has this “Mary” Genus head applier out for free. There’s no need to join the group. You can head over to their current but temporary location and purchase this gift for free. The gift is waiting on the desk in a little purple gift box. The Mary skin by Insol comes in several tones, each with or without brows. If you need body appliers for the Insol skin tones, you can purchase those for free as well. The body appliers vendor is on the wall opposite the desk. Pru is wearing the “Cinnamon” tone.
Head Appliers Included with Mary Skin: Genus Project Only
Body Appliers Available Separately: Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Vista, Omega

The Halter Top – This pretty blue halter top is the Education for Kenya Hunt prize at Meowhi. The EKH is a 10 linden hunt, and at Meowhi 100% of the proceeds will go to the Education for Kenya cause. I love when shopping also has a positive purpose other than growing my wardrobe. The hunt object is a pencil. Just to give you a little hint, look low. Happy hunting!
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Here are the details:

Hair – Magika [03] Mint

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 1/13/2019 – C!L

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! You guessed it, this is another edition of “Designer of the Week” with fabulous designer C!L. This is definitely a new-to-me shop, and as C!L may well be new to you as well, we like to make a little post once a week as we have new designers joining Fabulously Free in SL to tell you about them and all they have to offer (especially the gifts!). C!L is a ladies clothing store that has a sort of “old Hollywood” feel to their clothing style. Much of what you’ll find are mesh dresses for both casual and formal occasions. The C!L shop itself is small, though I suspect that may change. Currently you will see right away the desk where you can grab a little free gift. It’s the small purple giftbox. Also, as you can see C!L is participating in the Magical Winter Hunt.

Here next to the desk is also where you can join the C!L store group. It has a one time join fee of 50 linden. The current C!L group gift is waiting just above the group joiner. It’s a pretty strapless formal gown in several colors. You can also pick up the free C!L gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members in this spot. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Just click the gift vendor while wearing your Fab Free group tag to get your fabulous fur coat.

Across from the desk on the opposite wall at C!L is a Midnight Mania board. The free prize is another beautiful formal gown in black. There is no group required to participate in this Midnight Mania board, and as you can see the board has a low target that does appear to fill up! Whether you are looking for a formal gown or just something pretty to wear while you shop, definitely stop by C!L and take a look at their glamorous clothing line.
