Fab Free Designer Friday – 03/24/2017 – Entice

Entice Main Entrance
Happy Friday Fab Free! Today’s Fabulous Designer Friday post is all about Entice. I’m pretty sure the Entice shop has been around as long if not longer than I have. They are truly a “household” name in Second Life. If you’ve never been to Entice, now is a great time to get to know this shop. They have recently redone their store, and I personally love the new layout. Entice specializes in mostly women’s mesh clothing, however they have become a one-stop-shop in that you’ll find everything from casual day wear to evening wear, lingerie, shoes, even nail appliers and hairstyles. I’m sure I’ve left something out of that list, but you get the idea! As you enter the store, you’ll see the desk with all the usual information and a few extras. There’s a subscriber group as well as the regular store group, both are FREE to join. In that first room you’ll also find the wall of information as I’ve come to call it, and as you can see in the photo below, Entice participates in several events. If you’re interested in what they have to offer at any one event, you can visit the room to the left and get a full preview including demo items when available for the current lineup of events
Entice Information & GiftsOne thing about Entice that no one can deny is how generous they are with gifts and opportunities to score FREE or inexpensive items. Just beyond the room at the entrance, after you go through a beautiful landscaped courtyard, you’ll find a second circulation desk, and a full wall of group gifts, midnight mania, and lucky boards. As I mentioned before, the Entice group is FREE to join.  This is also where you’ll find the current Fab Free exclusive group gift. You may remember this gift from Serena’s post “ Tres Joli in Rose“.  To get the Fab Free nail applier gift, don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. Not a member? No problem! There is a group joiner for the Fab Free group just above the gift, and the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Is it your rez-day? Entice wants to celebrate with you! in the same room you’ll find a corner with balloons and two FREE gifts that are available only on your rez-day. There’s also a Wardrobe gift in that area. Whew, that’s a lot of gifting goin’ on! Needless to say, a trip to Entice is well worth it, you won’t be disappointed.

Fab Free Designer Saturday – 03/18/2017 – Lil’ Tease

Lil Tease Landing Point
Hello Fab Free! Yep, this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday is happening on Saturday this week. Don’t let that be a negative though, this week simply slipped away from me faster than I could keep up with! This week’s featured shop is Lil’ Tease, which is also a new-to-me shop, and I always enjoy exploring new designers. I think you will too. As the name might suggest, this is a women’s clothing shop, however I did come across at least one vendor with menswear. Still a fairly new store, this shop has a handful of mesh women’s clothing items, as well as a few extras. At the Lil’ Tease landing point, you’ll be struck by the cute pink and dark gray/black decor, I also noticed a few unicorns which kinda made my day.
LT Gifts & Boards
A few other things at Lil’ Tease, like the super sweet Fab Free exclusive group gift (Fabulously Free in SL group tag required) also made my day. No really, this completely FREE group gift is not only cute but covered in yummy sweets. To get a better look at this fantastic gift exclusive to Fab Free group members at Lil Tease, check out Astrid’s post here and Edi’s post here.  The gift is located to the left at the landing point. You’ll also see another affiliate group gift available in the same area. If you look to the right, you’ll find the two midnight madness boards, as well as a few gachas. While browsing through the shop, make sure you head to the back room and take a look at the arc of items under the “Newness” sign. Several of those items are marked just 50 lindens. Also, if you’re in the market for some poses, don’t forget to venture upstairs. Happy Shopping!

FabFree Designer Friday – 02/24/2017 – Ecko

Ecko Storefront
Good Evening Fab Free’rs! Thanks for coming by. This week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday features a shop called Ecko. I was a little surprised that Ecko is such a new shop in Second Life. The clothing at Ecko has a cute casual style that would appeal to almost anyone. Ecko sells mainly women’s mesh and applier clothing. You’ll also find some fun accessories. At the landing point just outside the entrance you’ll be greeted by a few shop pets, and the subscriber kiosk. You’ll want to be sure to join the subscriber to keep up-to-date on all things Ecko, also subscriber members have access to 2 FREE gifts inside the store.
Ecko Info
Just inside the entrance, there’s a kiosk with a weekly special purchase for just 50 lindens. It also appears there are a limited number of this special purchase. Once inside if you browse your way to the right side of the shop you’ll find 2 FREE gifts for subscribers. Since you joined the Ecko subscriber on the way in, just click the vendors and your FREE gifts will be delivered to you. The right side of the shop is also where you’ll find the “wall of information” as I have come to call similar spots in other shops. Here you’ll find all the information about store affiliations and current/upcoming events and hunts. This is also where you’ll find Ecko’s exclusive Fab Free group gift. This cute little dress was previously shown on the Fab Free blog by Kathryn. Make sure to wear your Fab Free group tag to pick up this FREE gift.  There are also a few other group gifts. Take a moment to stop by  Ecko and do a little shopping, perhaps a little hunting, and a little freebie grabbing!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 2/17/2017 – MOoH

MOoH
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs and welcome to this weeks edition of Fab Free Designer Friday! This week’s shop is MOoH and I have to start by saying wow, this store has grown so much in the last few years. I can recall when MOoH was still a very young store with a hand-full of items. Now they have an enormous main store! I’m proud to see how far this cute shop has come. The above photo shows the entrance at the right half of the store. Yes I said right half! haha You’ll find information boards about various events and affiliations here. Inside you’ll find tons of cute quality ladies clothing in styles to suit everyday looks to formals, and most things in between. While clothing does seem to be the main focus at MOoH, there are also shoes and accessories, plus a courtyard full of gachas. You’ll notice the center gacha yard, along with a row of event information on art easels at the MOoH landing point.
More MOoH
After you’ve browsed your way through the gacha machines, which I dare you to not play, you’ll be met with another cutely decorated area of gifts and information. Here there’s a MOoH subscriber so you can stay informed without taking up a group slot. Additionally there is a re-delivery terminal, and all kinds of store information. The best info has to be the group gift info however. You should see the exclusive Fab Free group gift right away. It’s right next to that rainbow Fab Free group joiner. The Fab Free group is of course always FREE to join. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor to get your FREE gift. Sheidy blogged the super cute gift in her recent post here. You’ll also find other group gifts and the MOoH shop group gifts in this cute corner. The MOoH group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however the benefits are almost too numerous to list! There is of course the group gift, which you’ll need your MOoH group tag for and there’s the monthly gift gift card raffle. You’ll definitely want to take advantage of the chance to score a 500 linden gift card! Each month there are also group only discounts, a 150 linden gift card gift, there are group only Lucky Chairs, and group members get a 10% discount on the purchase of store gift cards. I’m almost certain I’ve left something off that lengthy list. I definitely encourage you to take the time to explore the MOoH store for yourself, even if it’s just to oogle all the cute decor and window-shop, you won’t be disappointed!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 2/10/2117 – Ollie’s Follies

Ollie's FolliesHappy Friday Fab Free’rs! Even better, Happy Fab Free Designer Friday! My apologies for the rather late in the day post. This week I am pleased to share with you a little about a shop called Ollie’s Follies. Everything at Ollie’s Follies is bright and colorful, including the mostly casual women’s clothing you’ll find at this bright spot. The clothing is mostly fun everyday casual clothing, however I did spot some dresses as well. One thing you’ll notice right away is that there are lots of opportunities for discounts and gifts. The store is also participating in the Nuts About You hunt. The hunt poster just outside will send you all the information about the hunt.
Ollie's Follies FreebiesAs you enter Ollie’s Follies you’ll be greeted by a colorfully decorated front desk. Here you can get store information and join the Ollie’s Follies group. The group is FREE to join at this time. There is also a re-delivery terminal just behind the desk. I love it when stores are set up to do re-delivery! If you venture to the room left of the desk, you’ll find the Ollie’s Follies exclusive Fab Free gifts. Just look for that colorful Fab Free sign. While wearing your Fab Free group tag, click the vendor and get your gifts! Don’t forget to scroll through the gifts, there’s more than one. Just in case you missed it, Edi blogged these great Fab Free group gifts in her post here. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Once you’ve picked up your Fab Free gifts, explore your way to the right side of the shop and you’ll find more gifts and goodies.

There is a Midnight Madness board that is giving out a FREE 100 linden Ollie’s Follies gift card. There’s no need for any groups to join this board, and just like the board says, everyone wins! I would say that 100 lindens would go to a long way toward trying a few items out if you’re new to the Ollie’s Follies brand. Also the gift cards are transferable so you can pass one to your friend, your sister, or perhaps your significant other if you don’t want to keep it for yourself. I also spotted a few weekend sale items in the same room. So if you’re looking for a cute spot to do a little shopping and score some freebies this weekend, Ollie’s Follies might be just the spot!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 02/03/2017 – ZOZ

ZOZ Main Location
Well Hello again and Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! This week I’m happy to share with you a little about ZOZ. I’ve always liked that store name, ZOZ. I think it sounds like something mysterious and powerful. For those who are new to Second Life or simply haven’t encountered ZOZ before, it is one of Second Life’s top shops for your manicure and pedicure needs. ZOZ has been part of Second Life for as long as I can recall, which says saying a lot. I’ve been around forever! At the ZOZ main location you’ll find room after room of gorgeous nail appliers for just about every mesh hand out there. ZOZ also makes a set of nails. The ZOZ nails are fun in that they are much longer and shapelier than the nails you can achieve wearing mesh hands only. One of the unique things about shopping at ZOZ is you can purchase individual applier sets, rather than buying big pack of multiple appliers. Most (if not all) of the available appliers will work for both hands and feet.
ZOZ Special Offers
At the ZOZ landing point, you’ll be instantly aware of the carefully cultivated atmosphere. In one word, ZOZ is posh! You’ll also find two awesome deals waiting right at the entrance. To the left you’ll find the most recent Saturday Sale offer, which is still available and will be for several days. This beautiful rose nail polish design is priced at just 75 lindens per applier type. Directly to the right you’ll find the most recent 60L Secret offer from ZOZ. Equally pretty, this nail polish set is just 60 lindens per applier type. Make sure you purchase the correct applier for your mesh hands or for you ZOZ nails. Also at the entrance, you’ll see a big pink sign with hearts. This sign is a big deal in that it announces the major sale going on at ZOZ. From now until February 14th the entire store is 50% off. This is huge! If you’re a long time fan of ZOZ like I am, or you’re new and want to try a few things out, this sale is one you won’t want to miss out on.
ZOZ Events
Finally, at the back of the main room just behind the information desk, you’ll find information about current events and store affiliations. To the left are event posters with information and group joiners. You’ll also find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift from ZOZ. This lovely gift has been blogged several times on the Fab Free blog, but was originally shown by Kathryn in her post here. To get this generous FREE gift you’ll of course need to wear your Fab Free group tag. Want to know what’s available at the Events before you teleport over? ZOZ has you covered there, to the right of the “Events” section, you’ll find “Event Items” where there’s a full display of the nail appliers available at each event. You can also get a landmark to each event by clicking the display photo. Needless to say if you have been neglecting your nails or if you’re nail applier addict, ZOZ is the store for you.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 1/20/2017 – PoshTale

PoshTale
Hello There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for coming by. It’s been a long Friday so I am happy to end the day on a positive note and tell you about another of the Fabulous Fab Free Designers, PoshTale. This quaint shop is decorated with a little bit of renaissance flair that lends its self to the modern fantasy style of clothing you’ll find in the shop. There are even a pair of handsome suits of armor at the entrance. Most items are ladies mesh clothing, though you’ll find some applier clothing as well. I also came across one or two mens items. PoshTale describes their own style as fantasy fashion, and I think that holds true for most of the items, however many of the styles are modern enough to be worn in an every day setting.

At the landing point pictured above, you’ll find three cutely packaged group gifts sitting on the counter. The PoshTale is FREE to join, making these gifts completely FREE as well. You’ll also see an ad for a FREE gift available at the Womens Stuff Lounge. Just click the photo and you’ll be given a landmark to the Womens Stuff Lounge where you can pick up the gift PoshTale has there.
PoshTale Boards & Gifts
There are also several other opportunities for FREE gifts at PoshTale. Of course my personal favorite of which is the Fab Free exclusive group gift. Yes, I know I am biased, however this FREE gift is quite lovely. It was previously blogged by Kathryn here. You will of course need to wear your Fab Free tag to collect this gift. Just above the Fab Free gift at PoshTale you’ll find a Midnight Madness board. Also present is the usual wall of information showcasing the store affiliations. Finally you’ll not want to miss the lucky boards. There are four lucky boards just around the side of the front counter. Whether you’re looking for something for role play or want a little whimsy in your wardrobe, PoshTale is the shop for you!
