Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/23/2017 – EscalateD

EscalateD Info Desk
Happy what’s left of Friday Fab Free’rs! I hope each of you has had a fun day that seemed to get away from you as I did. Even though it’s late in the day, I’m still excited to be here with you for this weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post. Today I get to share with you a cool little hair shop called EscalateD. The quote at the bottom of the Info Desk at EscalateD pretty much says it all. Life is too short for boring hair, especially in Second Life. Sorry gentlemen, this shop currently only has hair for the ladies. The most notable thing for me about the hairstyles aside from the style which is edgy and urban, are the bold bright color options along with rich natural colors. The EscalateD shop its self is small, however there are a lot of styles to choose from. At the landing point in the center of the shop you can find all the usual information. This is also where you’ll see info about current hunts and events, as well as group gifts.

EscalateD GiftsAs you can see in the photo above, there are many opportunities to score very cute FREE hairstyles at EscalateD. There is 1 current and 3 previous EscalateD group gifts currently available. There is also a group only Midnight Mania board. The EscalateD group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. In the same area of the store you’ll also see 4 other gifts including the FREE Fabulously Free exclusive group gift. Like always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. For a closer look at the Fab Free gift at EscalateD, check out Love’s announcement post here. In addition to all the cool group gifts, there is 1 freebie, and 2 non group Lucky Letter boards. You won’t want to miss out on all these amazing offers! Also, check out the weekly sales item next to the info desk, there you’ll find a discounted style each week. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/16/2017 – Marquesse Pret a Porter

MPP Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, and this week I’m happy to share with you a shop that has both male and female clothing designs. This week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Marquesse Pret a Porter. You’ll notice right away as you enter the shop that the store offers clothing for the ladies as well as gentlemen. There’s a wide range of clothing available at Marquesse Pret a Porter. I saw shoes along with casual and formal style clothing.

The circulation desk and wall of information are both in the same location, right as you enter the store. I love it when everything is easy to find and can be seen right away! Most of the shopping is on the main floor, however there are a few items upstairs as well.
MPP Gifts
The circulation desk area is also where you’ll find the Marquesse Pret a Porter group gifts, as well as several group gifts for other affiliated groups such as Fabulously Free in SL. First, the Marquesse Pret a Porter group has a one time join fee of 100 linden. You’ll find there are a few available group gifts located in a row just above the “Gift” marquee on the desk. The additional gifts require other specific group tags. For the exclusive Fab Free group gift, just wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and click the red and green present on the desk. You may recall seeing this gift in Astrid’s post “Waiting is Over-rated…” As always, the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. Oh! Also, before I forget, the Marquesse Pret a Porter group members also have group exclusive Midnight Madness boards and Lucky Chairs.
MPP MM Lucky Chairs
Located at the back of the store, Marquesse Pret a Porter group members can slap one or both Midnight Madness boards, and win prizes from the 5 Lucky Chairs. The MM Boards have one male gift and one female, while the Lucky Chairs have rotating gifts. Happy Shopping guys and gals!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/09/2017 – Costarlos

Costarlos Exterior
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s Friday already? This week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Costarlos. Yep, a menswear designer! You may be thinking this exterior shot of Costarlos looks somewhat familiar. Well that is because the Costarlos shop shares a location with BlackRose. The shops sit across a brick street from each other. I really like this shopping experience because it begins in such a pretty setting. You can even rez a bike for free and enjoy the scenery. As I’ve mentioned, Costarlos is mesh menswear designer. The style is what I would call classic, with a little bit of preppiness (that’s not a word but you get the idea!) and a little bit hipster. You’ll find everything from sports coats to graphic tees. There are even a few accessories upstairs along with a few cool looking flannels that I couldn’t help but notice.
Costarlos Offers & Gifts
The shop is clean and easy to navigate. You’ll notice a purple Fifty-Five Thursday kiosk just as you enter the shop, and three items on the wall that are all priced at 55 lindens currently. I don’t know how long these offers will be available, so don’t hesitate if you see something you like. To the left of the staircase you’ll find the FREE Costarlos Group Gifts and the exclusive Fab Free Group gift. The Costarlos group is FREE to join, as is the Fabulously Free in SL group. Carson showed the Fab Free exclusive gift in his post “Bike Break“.  You can also check out some of Carson’s other posts featuring the still available Costarlos group gifts and offers here, here, and here. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/02/2017 – Y&M Shop

Y&M Shop Desk
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a happy Friday. I can honestly say I think today may have been my longest day of all my days this week. It wasn’t a bad day, just long and productive. In the spirit of productivity, I’m excited to share with you this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post, featuring Y&M Shop. The landing point for Y&M Shop sets you down in a center courtyard of sorts for the store. It’s there that you’ll find most of the information about the current goings on at the shop. In the surrounding corridors you can shop women’s fashion including casual wear, evening wear, and shoes until your pixel heart is content! Speaking of hearts content, there are lots of opportunities for gifts and inexpensive finds, you know for the Fab Free addicted heart in each of us.

YM Shop Gifts
You’ll also see several large Easter eggs scattered around the shop, and a huge poster in the center room of the store detailing what is inside each of the thirty-something eggs. Each egg is just 15 lindens. Also in the same area, you’ll see the colorful Fab Free group joiner. Just under the joiner is As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Right next to the fabulous Fab Free gifts are the Y&M Shop group gifts. There are so many, I didn’t count them, but let’s just say there are enough to do some serious damage to your inventory! The store group does have a one time fee of just 25 lindens to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

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.

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!

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.
