Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/19/2018 – Hanau

Hanau Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Once again we are bringing the week to an end on the Fab Free blog with this week’s Designer Friday post. This week we are taking a look at the Hanau main store. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Hanau, they are probably best known for women’s applier clothing and lingerie. However, they also have mesh clothing and some accessories. I think the colorful tree outside their store is a great visual representation of their clothing style. No silly, it doesn’t look like trees, but it is vibrant and playful! Also there are lots of opportunities for you to score some really cute FREE clothes at Hanau. Keep reading to learn how.
Hanau Offers & Gifts
The Hanau store is well laid out with clear signage. I love it when shops are so easy to navigate! At the landing point is where you’ll find the “information wall” and the “circulation desk” that most if not all shops seem to have. This is also where you’ll find various group gifts. One of such gifts is the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift was previously announced in a post by Love here. It is FREE to all Fab Free group members, and of course the Fab Free group is FREE to join. At the circulation desk is where you’ll find the most recent Hanau group gifts. The Hanau group also happens to be FREE to join at this time.

As you browse through the Hanau main store, you’ll see a gacha room. This is also where the FREE for everyone lucky letter boards are located along with the FREE for everyone Midnight Mania board. I say “FREE for everyone” because these boards do not require any group to participate. I didn’t get the exact time, however the Lucky Letter boards do seem to change quickly. I hope you enjoy shopping at Hanau and all the fabulous freebies they have to offer.

Goodnight Dolores

Cranberries
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here, even though my post might be a little bit somber. As you may or may not have heard, the world lost another iconic musician yesterday. Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries passed away leaving behind a legacy as one of rock music’s beloved front women. Dolores was an incredibly talented musician and so much more to those that knew and loved her. She was definitely one of the women I deeply admired as a young person and am still inspired by. I could continue with an entire blog post, or two, speaking about my admiration for Dolores O’Riordan, and the many ways she’s influenced my life and the lives of countless others. I won’t. I’ll just end this explanation and tribute by saying how saddened I am to learn of her death, and how deeply I appreciate her and the incredible gift that is the music she left behind.

A Tribute in Plastik

In tribute to Dolores O’Riordan the designer at Plastik put out this little crop top featuring some of the better known lyrics from one of the most recognized songs by the Cranberries. The halter style top reads “In Your Head, In Your Head, Zombie, Zombie” which was very much a politically charged grunge rock anthem, and still is.  The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is completely FREE for everyone. You can purchase yours at the Plastik main store for zero linden.

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

The Situation has EscalateD

To go with the top from Plastik I picked up the most recent Fab Free group gift hairstyle from EscalateD. To me it has a very ’90s grunge rock aesthetic. The style comes in 2 sizes, each with or without the little stars. This Fab Free exclusive gift also includes a “Fab Free” color hud which has black hair with a wide range of brightly colored ends. There is also a color change hud for the little stars. To get your copy of this edgy hairstyle, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at EscalateD. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join.

Hot Elegant Malvada Mujer

Wait Just a Minute
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope this post finds you well. I have had so much going on, I am not even sure what day it is. One thing I am sure of however, is that I am loving this look made of group gifts and cheapies from Hot Elegant Clothing and La Malvada Mujer. There is something empowering about putting together such a daring look. Second Life lets me experiment with fashion in ways that I might not otherwise. I hope you have as much fun with these items as I did!

Hot Elegant Clothing aka HEC

This revealing outfit is the most recent group gift at HEC. This tiny bandeau style top paired with short shorts are ultra sexy on. Each piece can also be worn separately. This FREE group gift outfit from HEC comes in several mesh sizes and has a customization hud that lets you choose from a few color presets for the belt. There is also a few customization options for the top such as transparency, and the option to hide or show the belt. To get your copy simply join the Hot Elegant Clothing group for a one time fee of just 25 linden, then click the group gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh ( xxs – L ) w/Alpha Layer, TMP, Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya)

La Malvada Mujer

I don’t mind telling you that I am living for this eye makeup look from La Malvada Mujer. It’s one of several equally edgy and stunning color options in a recent group gift applier set. Called the Nefelina Eyeshadow, I picked up this FREE group gift by first joining the La Malvada Mujer group, it’s FREE to join, and checking the notices. You’ll see this FREE group gift went out on January 3rd, so it should be available for a few more days at least. Finally, this army green-ish lip color is an inexpensive find at the La Malvada Mujer location. I picked up the Underwood Lips for just 10 linden while browsing through the shop. There are 8 total lip colors including this dark green shade Pru is rocking. If the green isn’t something you’d enjoy, there is bound to be at least one you’ll love. Both the eye shadow and lipstick are appliers only.

Makeup Appliers Included: Omega, Genesis

Chocolate Lola
Happy New Year Fab Free! I hope you’re all looking forward to a brand new year, I know I am. It feels good to be excited for the future. For my first post of 2018 of course I found pretty lacy things! I also wanted to share with you another of the still available group gifts at Pumec. I showed the Pumec December group gift in my last post “Pumec Cherry” and was inspired to show more. First, the floral bra and panties set by Chocolate Atelier!

Chocolate Atelier at Japonica

While waiting to cheer in the New Year, I came across a new-to-me event called Japonica. As the name would suggest the entire event is Asian themed. I came across a small number of gifts while exploring the event, and this bra and panties set from Chocolate Atelier was one of those “I must have that” moments. The set is completely FREE, just click the vendor and buy the gift for $0 linden. This FREE gift at Japonica includes appliers and classic system layers in 2 color variations. I added a copy of the vendor ad by Chocolate Atelier so you can get a good look at this fabulous FREE gift.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP

Lola Up Close

Pumec

As I mentioned above, this lovely face is a past group gift at Pumec that is still currently available. I showed the current group gift in my last post “Pumec Cherry.”  This FREE group gift was the November gift at Pumec, her name is Lola, and I love her! Lola comes in a complete fat pack with body applier huds for each skin tone, a head applier for each tone, classic system layer skins, and a matching shape.  Currently the Pumec group is 299 linden to join, and there are several gifts available.

All Dressed in Black Black Black

All Dressed in Black
We made it through Christmas Fab Free! What a fun but hectic holiday! Christmas may be over, but there’s still plenty of reasons to celebrate and have a good time. New Years Eve is coming up in just a few days. I personally always look for gold and silver sparkly things to wear for a New Years Eve party. This year I like the idea of this calf-length black dress from CHAIN and these stiletto booties from Hilly Haalan, both in black. Not only are they ultra sexy, they are FREE group gifts just in time for a party.

CHAIN

This dress. I don’t think I really need to gush about how pretty it is. Right now it is one of several FREE group gifts at CHAIN. The CHAIN in world group has a one time join fee of 100 linden.  The Sally Dress comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from black, silver, or violet. There are also 2 versions of the dress, one with the body chains as shown in the photo above, and one without.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Hilly Haalan

I wasn’t sure how these detailed ankle boots would look with the Sally dress when I picked them up as a group gift at Hilly Haalan. Honestly, I love the two together. I think you could just as easily wear these awesome shoes with a pair of fitted jeans and a swanky top. These shoes are one of three group gifts currently available at Hilly Haalan. The Hilly Haalan group is FREE to join at this time, and all the group gifts are conveniently located at the landing point.

Shoe Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, N-Core, TMP

Happy Holidays to You

Happy Holidays
Hello Again Fab Free’rs. So I’m notoriously late getting my Christmas greeting cards in the mail. I never know what to say and I can never find my address book! This year I kept it simple and sent out a cute photo with “Merry Christmas” scrawled across the bottom. I still had to ask everyone for their address, but next year I’ll be prepared! This cute “Happy Holidays” pose by CNZ reminded me of my Christmas card, and inspired the above look. In this post I’ll tell you how to get the pose, the fancy hair, and this sweet holiday themed dress for FREE.

CNZ

As I mentioned this FREE group gift pose from CNZ inspired the look for this post. I love the chalk scrawl, and Happy Holidays is an appropriate greeting no matter which winter holiday you might be celebrating. You’ll need to join the CNZ group, which is FREE to join at this time. The gift comes with the chalk slate, and 2 versions of the static pose. Also, the vendor will require you to pay one linden and it will then send your gift and return your linden.

Lovey Dovey

These pretty curls are the most recent group gift hairstyle at Lovey Dovey. This time of year is just right for long spiral curls, I think they would look so pretty with all the festive holiday outfits. The gift includes the hairstyle in 2 sizes, and a fatpack of 6 color huds. The Lovey Dovey group is currently 100 linden to join, and there are 4 group gifts available.

Luziefee

I just love the vintage look of this FREE cute holiday dress by Luziefee. The dress is slightly fitted, mid-calf length with long cuffed bell sleeves. It also happens to be the most recent Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Luziefee. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor.  The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and has an alpha layer.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh s – XL

Plum Tuckered Out

Plum
Hi hi Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I’ll tell you I’m feeling a little tired and a whole lot lazy today. Not that there’s anything wrong with a sleepy lazy day once in a while! So lazy in fact that I didn’t bother with pants. Who need pants anyway. This is Second Life, and pants are overrated if you ask me. Haha Alright so this super comfy no pants look is courtesy of a FREE group gift at Masoom.

The gift includes this over-sized pushed-up sweater and matching panties in the plum color shown. Each piece can be worn separately as well as together, and there are several mesh sizes included. The Masoom group is just 10 linden to join. Now, I think I’ll curl up with some coffee and a book. I hope you enjoy this inexpensive gift from Masoom!

I Can Explain

I Can Explain
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you are all doing well. I’ll tell you, it’s true, I’m half in half out, a little up, a little down, and whether or not I’d be on Santa’s Nice list or the Naughty list is always up for discussion. Good or bad, naughty or nice, I can also always explain. So when I saw this joint gift from Villena and Pumpkin, I knew it was one I couldn’t pass up. To get this holiday outfit for FREE just head over to Villena and join the Villena group which is FREE to join at this time. There’s a gift vendor waiting for you right next to the group joiner just inside the shop. I included a copy of the vendor photo below.

Villena

This Santa inspired jacket is the Villena part of this FREE gift. The furry off-the-shoulder coat comes in 3 variations and several sizes. There’s the “classic Santa” jacket version Pru is wearing, a solid white version, and a cranberry sauce splattered white version. Along with the jacket there’s a holiday themed thong included in the gift.

Jacket Sizes Included: 2 Standard Mesh  / Thong Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya) , Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

Pumpkin

The top and leggings are the Pumpkin part of this fabulous FREE gift. Both gifts come together in the same package. The cropped mesh top has a customization hud that lets you hide or show the fishnet undershirt peeking out from the bottom. The leggings and the top can be worn together or separately and both come in several sizes.

Top and Legging Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

Merry Gothmas

Merry Gothmas
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I know I am enjoying this slightly naughty goth Christmas outfit thanks to group gifts from Pink Hustler, Queenz, and the current Fab Free group gift from Liquid. It feels festive and flirty, like a fun holiday party with friends or date night look. So bring on the eggnog and the Christmas music!

Pink Hustler

These cute braids with the Santa hat and ribbons at the ends are a FREE group gift at Pink Hustler. I really like the look of this style, especially the little strands in the front. They style includes a hud that gives you several “natural” hair color options, and an additional set of pretty pastels. The same hud will also let you pick from red, green, brown, or black for the hat and ribbons. The Pink Hustler group is currently 400 linden to join. I know that sounds like a lot, and it is, however there are quite a few group gifts still available. So if you have the lindens to spare, the Pink Hustler group is worth it in my opinion.

Liquid

To keep my all black holiday ensemble from being too, well all black, I picked up the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Liquid. The cute holly leaf face decal is one of 3 holiday themed options in this applier gift. Along with the holly leaves you can choose from a bell, a candy cane. Additionally, each image can be applied in color or black outline only. To get your copy of this fun FREE holiday gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Liquid.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Lelutka

Queenz

This group gift dress from Queenz is the naughty part of the ensemble. What’s so naughty about a sweater dress you ask? This particular dress has long peek-a-boo openings down each side. That bit of hip Pru’s flashing isn’t a wardrobe malfunction. The dress comes in 3 colors, black, brown, and navy. The Queenz in world group is FREE to join at this time. You’ll find this FREE group gift and others waiting on the right side of the shop.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, eBody Curvy, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Cotton Candy Sweet N’ Low

Cotton Candy 1
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I’m excited to share more of the fantastic gifts available at FaMeshed and the coveted TRUTH group gift for the month of November.  Since I have several things I want to tell you about, I’ll keep this part short and sweet. I hope you love these great gifts as much as I do!

TRUTH the Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth

Several days ago TRUTH sent out the group gift for November. Though it was a little late coming, the gift was well worth the wait. It’s also worth the one time join fee of 350 linden for the TRUTH VIP group. Each month a new group gift is sent out through the TRUTH VIP group. This long style is called Ginevra, and it is a fatpack. In addition to all the color huds, there are 2 versions of the hairstyle; One with the headband and one without. The gift also contains a style hud for both versions that lets you pick between 4 style variations, and 2 bang syles.  Additionally you can adjust for larger chest sizes. Needless to say, if you haven’t joined the TRUTH VIP group yet, you should!

Cotton Candy

Completely FaMeshed

Now, you may recall I showed the FaMeshed gift from Vinyl in my last post. Now I’ve picked 3 more to share with you. First, the top and matching pants are the FREE group gift at FaMeshed from COCO. I love the little details of this set, like the un-tucked side of the tank top.  You could also wear the top or pants separately.

Mesh Outfit Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Next up, the snowflake earrings by RealEvil Industries are gorgeous. You’ll find them FREE (just wear your FaMeshed tag) under the Christmas Tree at FaMeshed. There’s nothing about them I don’t like. They even have the added detail of looking like real earrings in the back. The little gold snowflakes with the diamond chip in the center are beautiful on. They are the sort of jewelry that can be worn with casual attire as well as formal.

Finally, I think the FREE necklace gift from Cae at FaMeshed is so cute for the holiday season. The gift includes a short and a long version of the same necklace. I wore both in the photo to show the difference in the lengths. The necklaces are sizable and include a hud for changing the metal of the jewelry, the color of the gemstone, and the wording on the little medallion. The medallion can say either “Naughty” or “Nice” I think I’m a bit of both, so I chose to wear one of each!

Here are the details, enjoy!
