Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/16/2018 – La Bella Boutique

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in a previous Designer of the Week type post, we’ve been adding some new members to our Fabulous Designers team. This week I’m happy to share with you La Bella Boutique. Just as the name might suggest, this shop has girly-girl written all over it. La Bella Boutique is self described as an “everything shapes and couture store.” Which I feel is an accurate description. There does seem to be an eclectic mix of everything from casual tops and dresses to evening wear and even some tattoos. Most (if not all) clothing items did appear to be mesh, with of course applier tattoos. The store is also quite girlishly decorated for Christmas, it’s a virtual pink winter wonderland complete with a menagerie of fantasy and woodland creatures frolicking around a giant pink Christmas tree. To me this just adds to the shopping experience in a fun way. Along with all the fabulous finds, there are quite a few opportunities at La Bella Boutique to score some free goodies.

Like many shops this time of year, La Bella Boutique does have an Advent calendar. It is for the La Bella Boutique group only, however the group is free to join. I’m not positive if past gifts are available or not, but even so there are still quite a few days left on this 24 day Advent calendar. Speaking of group gifts, there are tons and tons and tons and oh my so many La Bella Boutique group gifts available. The top photo in the above collage shows the row after row of La Bella Boutique group gifts. Additionally, there are several group only Lucky Letter chairs. Finally, there are the store’s associated group gifts for members of other groups like Fabulously Free in SL. The Fab Free gift is of course free, and if you’re not already a Fab Free group member the group is free to join also. I hope you enjoy what is left of this Fabulous weekend. Happy Shopping! Also, before I forget, as you can see in the top photo, La Bella Boutique is looking for female bloggers. If you’ve got your own blog and are interested, there’s a blogotex inside the shop where you can fill out an application. Good luck!

Book Worm

Book Worm
Hello There Fab Free! Are you feeling that holiday rush yet? I know I am! I needed to take a minute, relax, and unwind. A favorite way to do that is to find a comfy spot to sit, pick a good book to read, and sip a warm cup of tea (or coffee).  DE.Boutique recently sent out this cozy over-sized sweater dress to their Subscriber group. Also, I took a little time to pop over to Fameshed and pick up the pile of free gifts waiting under the Christmas tree. For today, I’m excited to share with you the Fameshed gifts from MINA and Contraption. Keep reading for more info about each of these fantastic finds!

The Dress – This wine colored gradient sweater dress was sent out earlier this week to the DE.Boutique Subsciber group. It is called the Zoe dress, and it comes int several mesh sizes. I do want to point out that I am unsure if new subscribers will receive the free gift of not. I did try unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the DE.Boutique Subscriber, and the gift was not redelivered. However I would still encourage anyone to stop by DE.Boutique and join their Subscriber group to be sure and receive any future gifts. Also, check your inventory, if you’re already a DE.Boutique Subscriber, you may have received it.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ebody, Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Hair – This cute puffed up side pony is the free Fameshed group gift by MINA. The Fameshed group is free to join, and you’ll need to wear the group tag to get the gifts. You’ll find a whole pile of presents under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This hairstyle from MINA comes in a “browns” color pack, but I have to say the color range is quite broad, there are very dark almost black shades, and very deep auburn red shades along side several brunettes.

The Glasses – I love these unique glasses with their rectangular lenses. They are the free Fameshed group gift by Contraption available under the Fameshed Christmas tree. This gift includes a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from preset colors to change the color of each lens individually, as well as the frame. You will need to wear the Fameshed group tag to get the gift, however the Fameshed group is free to join.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Tis The Season to be Silly

Season's Silliness

Hey there Fab Free’rs! I have to admit, it’s unusual for me to be this level of festive before December 1st, but I just couldn’t resist. These cute free gifts from the Black Friday Bazaar were just too fun, and I had to share them with you. So if you’ve not made it out to the BFB (Black Friday Bazaar) yet, you really should go! These free gifts do require you to wear the Evil Bunny Hunts group tag. However, the Evil Bunny Hunts group is free to join. Keep reading for all the info about these cute holiday finds.

The Sweater – I think deep down I have a true affinity for Christmas sweaters. This cute sweater is the free BFB gift by Jelly Roll. It comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Glasses – Heart shaped, and glittery, these free BFB glasses by Sweet Evil were irresistible! They come with a color change hud that lets you pick \from the rainbow glitter version shown, a silver glitter, or a gold glitter. The same hud also lets you adjust things like brightness and shine.

Antlers, Nose, Puppy, and Pose! – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is one of my favorite Christmas stories, so these antlers and the glowing red nose were just what I needed for a bit of silly holiday fun. The husky pup with his matching antlers and red nose is just icing on the cake. These festive items are all included in the free BFB gift from ENIIPose. Also included is the bento pose used for the photo.

If I Cannot Fly Let Me Sing

Green Finch & Linnet Bird
Hello Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t been to the current round of the Redeux Event, you need to go. This round will end in a few days and there are tons of free gifts. Each of the participating designers has a free gift set out. You’ll find clothing, and decor, and everything in between! All you need to do is join the free-to-join Redeux VIP group. Once you’re wearing your Redeux tag, you can click the gift bags at each booth and your free gift will be sent to you. So of course I picked a few I really liked to show you. It was actually really hard to pick just these four items, there are so many awesome gifts. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Horns – Of course I picked horns as one of the free Redeux gifts to share with you! These pretty horns with the little flowers are by Evil in the Box. They come in 5 color variations and can be resized.

The Choker – This beaded choker with a cross charm by Vibes is beautifully detailed. It is their free gift at Redeux. The choker has resize scripts for easy fitting, and comes with a color change hud that lets you change various parts of the choker using several preset color choices.

The Dress – I know you can’t see the full dress in the photo, but this pretty teal gown by Faida is floor-length. I thought the yellow gold embellishment on the front made it look a bit regal. The dress is Faida’s free gift at Redeux. It comes in a single mesh size.

The Tattoos – Finally, the beautiful tattoos on Pru’s arms are the free Redeux gift from Iron & Rose.  They come in 3 variations, fresh, faded, and worn. Each one is a separate Omega Applier.

Rose Red

The Succubus
Hello There Fab Free, I hope your weekend has been fabulous. This slinky red dress by Scandalize had me feeling darkly romantic. It’s the free group gift at the Vanity Event. I paired it with this cool 10 linden skull septum piercing by Venge that I picked up at The Mad Circus Gacha. Keep reading for more information about these two fabulous finds, or scroll down to the credits to the where and how much. ❤

The Dress – This sexy red dress is the free Vanity Event group gift by Scandalize. You’ll find it waiting just inside the entrance to the event. Just join the free-to-join Vanity Event group, and click the gift vendor. The dress comes in the solid matte color shown, and a red glittery version.

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

The Piercing – I think this septum piercing by Venge added just the right amount of sinister to Pru’s look. The little skull has red jeweled eyes, and a red gemstone fangs. My apologies, my photo doesn’t convey either of those details. This cool accessory is just 10 linden at The Mad Circus Gacha Fair.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hello October

Hello October
Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs, and a special hello to the month of October! Sings “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” Honestly, October is my December, and Halloween is my Christmas. Alright, I won’t subject you to any more of the thought of me singing, but I am still excited about the group gifts from Safira and HEC I have to share with you.

The Top – Love reminded me about this recent free group gift out at Safira. She really knows my style so well! The top has a satin-like look to it and is plain in the front with this cutely spooky skull cutout pattern in the back. This cute top comes with a color change hud with quite a few solid color options. The Safira group is free to join at this time, and there are quite a few group gifts available.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), Slink Hourglass

The Bracelet – One of the most recent group gifts at HEC is this cute bracelet. The letters spell the word HOT which gives this accessory a little sass! This group gift at HEC comes in a left and a right so you can wear it on either wrist, or both. It’s also able to be resized and is unisex. The bracelet has a color change hud with the ability for you to choose a custom color for the letters and the band. The HEC group has a one time join fee of 25 linden.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hello hello from Cloud 9! Well from a cloud anyway. haha I hope everyone is doing well. I’m excited to share with you this gorgeous Lucky Letter Board dress from Apple May Designs along with a beautiful group gift hairstyle from Opale. I took the photo from the back because I felt like the back of the dress and the back of the hairstyle were quite nice. I love the long understated black bow detail in the dress. I also thought the little wisps of hair in the back of this long hairstyle were a nice touch. Keep reading for the details on how to get each of these fabulous finds.

The Hair – The hairstyle Pru is wearing in the above photo is Sofa by Opale. There is a free group gift version of Sofa at Opale that includes 3 color versions. There is a blonde, a dark blonde, and a brunette color with the pretty pink and blue color fades. At this time the Opale group is free to join. The Leo hairstyle shown below is another free group gift currently available at Opale. I also saw two group gift headbands.

OPALE GROUP GIFT

The Dress – I think this sweet slip of a dress by Apple May Designs is really pretty. There are two ways you can score this dress for free or very inexpensively. Apple May Designs group members can participate in the Lucky Letter boards. There are two, one for each of the colors shown in the ad below. If you don’t want to wait for your letter to pop up and have a few lindens to spare, AMD group members can also purchase this dress for just 49 linden. There are also previous AMD group-only specials available at that price, just be sure to wear your AMD group tag. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden if you are not already a group member.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/16/2018 – Chaotic!

Hello hello Fab Free! Remember when I said recently I wasn’t ready for the weekend. That was an understatement. Now I am not ready for it to end! Either way, here we are, and I’m glad for it. This week’s Designer of the Week is Chaotic!. Let me just start by saying this store is larger than it looks! The Chaotic! shop is a ladies clothing boutique. Among the pink flowers, unicorns, and bright pink, green, and black decor you’ll find a truly eclectic mix of casual and what I would call “club wear” clothing. Much of what I saw did appear to be mesh and come in quite a few body specific sizes. If you’re looking for something casual but with a little bit of sass and sexiness, Chaotic! just might have what you’re looking for. There are also quite a few opportunities to score some free or heavily discounted items, which of course we love!

While you’re shopping keep an eye out for the Discount Roulette boards. I spotted three, but I could have missed one. The Discount Roulette works so that you pay full price for the featured item, and then are automatically refunded a random portion for a special discount. You might even get the item for free! I also spotted two Midnight Mania board with very low targets. One is for everyone, no group needed, and the other is for Chaotic! group members only. Don’t fret, the Chaotic! group is free to join. There are also lucky letter boards, and an entire section of group gifts. The group gift section has gifts for various store associated groups. This is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to Fab Free group members. Don’t for get that Fab Free group tag! All in all, there is plenty to make Chaotic! a unique and fun shopping experience!

We Are the Weirdos, Mister

Weirdo
Hi There Fab Free! I feel like this week was one of those that both dragged on and flew by. I wasn’t prepared for today to be he weekend already. Even unprepared, I’m all for it! Just recently Love did a post where she showed us two of the cute new free Lucky Letter Boards at Petite Mort, if you missed it her post is here. I mention it because she let me know that Oubliette had also put new free prizes in their Lucky Letter boards. She also said they reminded her of me. Well I am here to say she was so right! This novelty tank top especially is right up my ally. In addition, this flirty little belted skirt is also a free Lucky Letter board prize at Oubliette. I think it pairs nicely with the top. Keep reading for the who, what, and where of how to get your copy of these fabulous finds.

The Top – As you may or may not know, Petite Mort and Oubliette share a store group. The group is free to join. Also, the single group will grant you access to the free Lucky Boards and Group gifts for both stores. Just be sure to wear your group tag before you start stalking those Lucky Letter boards! This cute top comes in several mesh sizes. Bonus points if you know what movie this quote is from, without having to look it up!

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

The Skirt – This is what I would call a micro mini shirt. She is short ya’ll! However, since when has lack of length stopped anyone from wearing a cute skirt in Second Life?! This one is really cute. I think the studded belts also make it fun to wear. Like the top, this skirt is also a free Lucky Letter board prize at Oubliette. It comes in the purple shade shown, with several size options.

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