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.

Late Afternoon


Late Afternoon

Hello Fab Free’rs! Sometimes you just need to sit and have a quiet moment. Yesterday was that kind of day for me, nothing sad or unfortunate, just some quiet time to reflect. It was good, and needed. I also had a little bit of time to pick up some recent group gifts that I’m happy I get to share with you. Keep reading and as always, I’ll give you all the information about each of these fabulous finds.

The Outfit – Pru’s cute froggy top and plaid pants are the latest free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by C!L. You can’t see it as well in my photo, but the shirt is cropped and knotted in the front. I love this for a cute casual Valentine look. The outfit comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic avatars. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, you should be! The Fab Free group is always free to join.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs -XL), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), TMP

The Bracelet Hot Elegant Clothing or “HEC” put out a cute bracelet set out as a new group gift. It comes in a few sizes to best fit specific mesh bodies. Also, there is a hud that will let you completely customize the color of individual sections of the bracelets. I’ve included the vendor photo below so you can get a closer look. The HEC group has a one time join fee of 25 linden.

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

The Bench – This adorably rustic heart bench is a free group gift at Reka. The Reka group is free to join. It has a few female sit poses, a few male sit poses, and several cuddles. I love the over all look of this sweet free gift, especially the way the bench curves toward the center. This freebie is waiting at the Reka landing point. There’s also a group joiner since you’ll need to be wearing the Reka group tag.

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!

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!

It comes in several sizes, and 2 options. There’s the black version Pru is wearing, and a white version which is the same pattern with the colors reversed. The male gift is a vest with the same cool pattern. Right now the BYRNE group is free to join.

Fancy Predator


Canimal Predator Dress

Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope your weekend has been awesome so far. I’m being mostly held hostage by Real Life, but that’s okay. At least I get to share some fabulous freebies and cheapies with you! For this post I want to tell you about two of the handful of group gifts at Canimal. I also want to tell you about the Fifty Linden Friday item at Fancy Décor.  I know what you’re thinking, it’s Saturday! Not to worry though, the Fancy Décor FLF item will be available through Sunday.

First up, this killer dress by Canimal. I say killer because, look at it with the awesome crocodile skin-like texture and the flair of the skirt. Not to mention it happens to be named the “Predator” dress. It’s not often that a dress makes me feel cute, and feisty! This group gift is free to all Canimal group members, and the Canimal group is free to join. Also, if black isn’t your color, the dress has a color change hud with several options. As for the size, I believe it is a Maitreya Lara fit only. It comes in a single unmarked mesh size.

Canimal Lingerie
Next up, a second group gift from Canimal. As I mentioned before, there are multiple group gifts at Canimal, and this sexy black lace bodysuit is one of them. I like that it’s both simple and beautiful without a lot of extra straps or frills. I believe this gift is for Maitreya body wearers only as it comes in a single mesh size. It is also free to Canimal group members. Also, I want to mention that along with the group gifts at Canimal, there are several Lucky Letter boards. You’ll find the group gifts and LL boards on the second floor of the Canimal store.

Finally, I mentioned a Fifty Linden Friday item from Fancy Décor. The PG version of the beautiful bed with white bedding and canopy posts shown in both of the above photos is the FLF item at Fancy Décor. This bed comes in either black or gold, both with white bedding. Only the PG version is 50 lindens through this Sunday. I’ve added a vendor photo below so you can get a better look.

In the Quiet of the Afternoon


In the Quiet of the Afternoon
Hello Fab Free’rs! Happy weekend! I’m so glad you’re here. For this post I have the most booty-licious sweater dress ever and the cutest chair and table set to share with you. Keep reading for all the details.

The Dress – The pretty sweater dress Pru has on is one of several free group gifts available at Ellnique. The Ellnique group is free to join. I love the long sleeves and high neck of this dress, it also happens to be very shapely. I don’t mind telling you I changed Pru’s shape a little for this dress, her curves came out a little too dangerous when she first put it on. This dress definitely has a corseted look to it. This and the other group gifts can be found upstairs.
Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Furniture – I’m not sure what took me this long to pick up the latest group gift at Kraftwork, it’s cute as can be! This “Gipsy” set includes the chair, table, and lantern shown. Each of the 3 items is copy so you can rez out multiple. I love the bright colors and playful floral patterns. This set is one of quite a few group gifts, all of which are furniture, landscaping, or other home related items. The Kraftwork group is just 25 linden to join, and the beautiful gifts are well worth the effort.

Here are the details!

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

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.
