Fab Free Designer Friday – 02/16/2018 – #bye

#bye Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! So this Friday we are bringing in the weekend with #bye. Also to be read as “Best You Ever“, #bye is a ladies clothing store (though I did see one or two male items) with a range of sexy clothing styles, shoes, and lingerie. The shop is self described as specializing in “lifestyle apparel”, which to me translates into BDSM or D/s lifestyle clothing. Much of the fashion is quite cute and sexy.  #bye also has items suitable for mesh and classic avatars. As you make your way around the store you’ll notice that #bye has a wall (opposite side of the wall at the entrance) with the usual information such as a link to the Flickr feed and Facebook page.

#bye Gifts

This same wall is also where you’ll find a fun Mini Mania board that is FREE for everyone to participate in. Additionally this is the spot where the most current group gifts appear to be located. There is a shelf in an adjoining room that has little gift boxes that are previous but still available group gifts. The #bye group is FREE to join. In addition to the #bye group gift, there are a few other group gifts available on this wall. One of which is of course the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. Remember to wear your Fab Free group tag to pick this one up!

The Makeup – Valentine’s day may be over, but I’m not done with the cute hearts. These subtle hearts, freckles, lashes, and the deep pink eye shadow are all part of a FREE group gift makeup applier hud from Pout. The set includes 2 lash styles, the freckles with hearts, and the eye shadow with or without the tiny heart under the lower lash line. The Pout group is FREE to join.

Never too late for <3’s

Be My Belated Valentine_001

Never too late for <3’s

I don’t think hearts are ever out of season! Love shouldn’t be just one day of the year after all! But if you want to say that this outfit is a Happy Belated Valentine’s Day gift, that is okay too. Either way, I love this fanciful outfit!

I picked up my pretty red dress with the hearts on it from Ison. It is a Valentine’s gift so I’m not sure how long it will be out, so don’t wait! Hurry and pick this one up. It’s free and no group is required, just buy it for 0L when you go inside the store.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya

<3’s in My Hair Too!

I even have fancifully heart-ed hair too! Another store that has set out a no-group-required free Valentine’s gift is Exile. Again, since this is a holiday exclusive gift, I’m not sure how long it will be out… so hurry! You won’t need a group, just buy it for 0L. This pretty bun with the side tendrils has hearts in the hair.

There are two separate huds that accompany the hair. You get a hud to change the color of the hearts (I kept them a traditional red) and you get a hud to change the color of the hair to various dip dye colors. It’s such a pretty style and for free!

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!

Not Your Babe

Not Your BabeThe word Babe…  Offensive or Not?

What is it about the word “babe” that offends so many?  I don’t think it’s the actual word, because I can think of instances that “babe” was actually said in endearing ways and gave me those mushy gushy feelings.  I think it’s rather the situation of someone being too familiar than they should that is offensive.  They could have used any old pet name word and gotten the same reaction, but it just happened to be babe that came out.  Using the word babe in regards to someone is definitely a risky choice!  I guess the moral of the story is here to be absolutely certain he or she really is your babe before you say it lol.  Anyways…  just a little something that roamed my wandering mind when I came across this T-Shirt as a free group gift yesterday.

Did You Say Free Group Gift?

Yes, I did say free group gift!  Members of the Miss Chelsea inworld group can head down to the reception desk and pick up the new group gift which just happens to be the Judi Top with “Not Your Babe” across the front of it. It comes in several mesh body fits as listed below and includes a texture change HUD that allowed for four different colours.  The vendor ad shows two – so I’m including that here too.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

.miss chelsea. judi top - group gift out now!

The Miss Chelsea group is 100L to join, but on the desk you’ll find several past group gifts still available, many of which shown here on FabFree!

Almost Spring

Stripes_001

It’s still sweater weather where I am, but it’s warming up just enough that I can go out without a jacket. It’s hard to believe that it’s still February when some of these warm breezes blow in.

A special gift.

When I saw the Blizzard Top by House of Ruby, I knew it was perfect for these February days that are warm enough to go without a jacket but too cold to go without some protection. It’s Olgita Ruby’s gift to you for being a member of the FabFree group gift, so it’s completely free with your FabFree group tag! Just don your tag and stop by her main-store (be sure to check out all the other amazing stuff plus some past group gifts as well!) and pick up the gift. It comes in several applier layers.

Appliers available:

  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Baubles

I wanted to add a little bit of “spring is in the air” to my outfit so I stopped by Beloved Jewelry to pick up their FabFree group gift offering. This one too is free of course and is a lovely wire scroll jewelry set in a soft pink. You can get a better idea of how pretty it is if you zoom in on my flickr picture as it is a very delicate piece. It comes with matching earrings as well, that are hidden under my hair. As always, FabFree gifts are free! Pick this one up too and you’ll be ready for a date, a casual day in the park, or a formal occasion!

OH! And Happy Valentine’s Day! 😉

Firelight Hearts

Firelight Hearts
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Is anyone else just now realizing that Valentine’s Day is just a few days away!? I got caught up in all the hearts and cuteness and forgot to pay attention to the actual date. Thankfully there is still time to find something cute to wear. I suggest this fun little dress from HEC (Hot Elegant Clothing) for the WomenStuff group. Also included with this gift is a HUD that lets you change the glow, and  “sheerness” of the dress, or hide it completely for a “strip” effect. The WomenStuff group is just 50 linden to join. This dress has a matching alpha layer as well, so it can be worn by classic non-mesh avatars.

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

Everyone loves FREE hair, especially me! The sleek hairstyle Pru is wearing is a FREE 68 Main event group gift by Firelight. The 68 Main group is FREE to join. With the Firelight gift at 68 Main you’ll get the style in 2 sizes and a color hud with the light brown shade shown and a darker brunette option.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Gun-Slinger

Guard Duty_002

Annie Oakley

This isn’t the wild west but this outfit made me think of Annie Oakley who sort of paved the way for women to gain prowess with their own shooting skills. One of her more popular quotes (according to google) is: “There are always women who will take men on their own terms. If I were a man I wouldn’t bother to change while there are women like that around.” I had to stop and wonder a moment if she meant that they shouldn’t bother to change clothes… but maybe that is just me being silly 😛

Where to get the Digs

At any rate, you will find this great all-in-one outfit at SA Quartermaster, gun included, for many different mesh bodies. It comes in all one piece so nothing is detachable, and it does not include the boots. You do get a color change hud with four different colors of red, including a camouflage red color. This gift is completely free as part of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt going on right now.

Mesh Size Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New City

Rainy Day_001

“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.”
― Charlotte Eriksson

My friend and I went sim exploring and ended up at Tralala’s Diner. It’s this little city street with vendors and it’s raining hard and there is this urban “crunch” about it. It made me think of this quote about how I like to wander new places… but I never really intend to stay in them. I’m always bound to go home. That’s just who I am.

An outfit for the city…

I found a new outfit, perfect for visiting city streets at Barbed Wire Kisses, courtesy of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt. All the gifts in this hunt are free so I picked this one up for 0L. You get the top and the skirt (you can wear them separately) in several mesh sizes to suit your needs. I like the details of the rivets and the buckles that I think make this outfit super sexy.

Dress mesh size compatibility:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus
