I Saw Stars

I Saw Stars

Hey there Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. A musician friend of mine once said “It’s hard being cool when you’re not.” It made me laugh at the time, but in a lot of ways it’s a true statement. I think we all at some point want our peers to think of us as some form of “cool.” As for me, I am genuinely the least cool person ever, but I don’t mind. I’m learning to be happy just being the nerdy weirdo that I am. Still, I can manage to look cool thanks to this super cool free top from BYRNE!

The star patterned top Pru is wearing is the free June group gift for all BYRNE Style group members. It comes in several mesh sizes, and as always the texture is art in itself. Speaking of the texture, the top comes in 2 variations, the black version shown and a similar white version. Not to mention it would be perfect for the up-coming 4th of July festivities for those who celebrate and don’t fancy the traditional “red white and blue” theme. Also, there is a gift for the guys! To get your gift, join the BYRNE style group, it is free to join, and check the group notices. Don’t forget there’s a version for male avatars as well! 
Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/01/2018 – SALTY

SALTY Vanity
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I don’t know what it is about Fridays, but they always seem to sneak up quickly! This Friday I have the pleasure of sharing with you a little shop called SALTY. This ladies clothing boutique is self described as “style with sass.” I think that is a fitting description. The clothing is very feminine and flirty. There is also a little bit of everything at SALTY from casual every day outfits to gowns and lingerie. Generally I try to include a photo of the exterior of the shop, however this little vanity setting inside the SALTY store I felt captured the feel of the shop so well. The pretty black and purple decorated store is really easy to navigate, and the current group gift is well marked under a lit sign that says “Group Gift.”
SALTY Gifts
Just like the Fabulously Free in SL group, the SALTY store group is Free to join. The current group gift for SALTY store group members is this cute little harness dress. You can also wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag to get the halter style dress shown above under the Fab Free group joiner for free. There are also two additional group gift dresses available for other SALTY affiliated groups. Finally, I did see evidence that there were or would be Midnight Madness/Mania boards at some point, so keep an eye out for those! Happy shopping Fab Free, and like the sign says, keep your spirit SALTY!

Just Call Me Wednesday

Beach Goth
Hello Fab Free’rs! I am always happy you’re here. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I call this look “when you’re goth af but you love the beach.” It’s true, I do love the beach and I certainly have my goth girl moments. There isn’t anything about this look, parasol and all, that I don’t love. I feel like a grown-up Wednesday Addams on summer holiday. The parasol, this killer swimsuit, and the gorgeous heels are all fabulous free or otherwise inexpensive finds. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the where and how of getting each one.

The Parasol – I found this adorably goth parasol by Kaos on the Marketplace for just 20 linden. It is just as you see though it is difficult to see the slightly speckled texture in this photo. The hold pose is built in, and it has resize scripts. I was even able to use the parasol with another pose and the parasol’s hold pose still worked. You can get your copy of this darkly cute parasol from the Kaos store on the Marketplace. Other colors are available also.

The Bikini – When I saw the ad for this bikini from Kenodoxy, I had one of those “I need that” kind of reactions. It is every bit as cute on as it was in the vendor photo. The swimsuit is a free group gift at Kenodoxy. It comes in several mesh sizes. The Kenodoxy group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on this awesome gift.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Shoes – Those shoes though! I love everything about these free group gift shoes from VO.Z. The straps that wide around your calves are made to look like rose stems or vines. I think it makes them all the prettier. These shoes have a color change hud that lets you change the color of the heel, straps, the leaves, and the rose separately. To get your pair, head over to VO.Z and join the free-to-join VO.Z group.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Parasol w/hold – [Kaos] Cooky Parasol – Black – 20L on the Marketplace
HairRunAway – [RA] Wicca Hair – Grayscale
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Sunglasses – Petite Mort– Lennon round specs

Z.O.E. Landing Point
Hello hello Fab Free! Thanks for being here. This week’s designer of the week is none other than Z.O.E. I have to tell you that  Z.O.E. is one of those shops that it is genuinely a pleasure to browse through. It is a shop that has a little bit of everything nestled neatly in the setting of a residential home. Shopping at Z.O.E. feels like you’re browsing through a quaint downtown shop in a small town. Much of what Z.O.E. has to offer is furniture and decor. You’ll also find commercial and residential builds, and even a small amount of men’s and women’s clothing.

Pictured above is the information area at the Z.O.E. landing point. Here you can access the shop Flickr, blog, and Facebook page. There’s also a convenient teleporter that will take you to building demos, and the clothing area on the second floor. Right next to this spot you can also purchase store gift cards.
Z.O.E. Gifts and Offers
The weekly sales at Z.O.E. are clearly marked, and not far from the landing point. There is also a group gift area. There you can join the Z.O.E. VIP group. This group is FREE to join. Z.O.E. VIP group members get discounts on new releases, discounts on regular purchases, store credit on purchases made while wearing the group tag, and group gifts. In this area is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Z.O.E. It’s a super cute two-sided frame. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Also, don’t pass by the cute heart patterned pillow. It’s not only a cute decorative pillow, it’s a FREEbie!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 03/16/2018 – Petry Model Store

Petry Model Store Exterior
Hi again Fab Free’rs! I almost can’t believe it’s Friday again! It seems the week went by so fast.  Either way, I’m always glad it’s Friday. This weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Petry Model Store. A ladie’s fashion shop, Petry Model Store has a sexy urban street wear vibe to their styles. They offer ladies mesh, fitted mesh, and applier clothing, and shoes. The clothing ranges from every day casual outfits to evening looks, all of which have an element of sexiness. At this time the Petry Model Store group has a one time join fee of 50 linden. In addition to many group gifts there are perks to being a group member. If you wear your group tag while making purchases at Petry Model Store, there is a store group discount. There are also group only promotions. Just as you enter the store there’s even a 10 linden gift waiting on the circulation desk. No group needed for that one.
Petry Model Store Gifts & Offers
As you enter the Petry Model Store, you’ll be greeted by the previously mentioned circulation desk. At the desk you can pick up the 10 linden gift, join the Petry Model Store group, and access the re-delivery terminal. To the right of the desk there is a wall with all the Petry Model Store group gifts. Two of these gifts you may recall from my previous blog post “Stories to Tell.” To the left of the Petry Model Store group gifts are even more group gifts by Petry Model Store for various group members. This is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. Just look for that colorful Fab Free logo/group joiner.

No Love

No Love
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m just going to come right out and say it, there are days when I really wish I could wear this shirt to work irl. Just sayin’! Generally speaking I enjoy my coworkers, but every workplace has a few that you just tolerate. The top and septum piercing Pru is wearing are both current group gifts.

The Shirt – This sassy tied top is a FREE group gift at Trashed. It comes in several mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer for non-mesh avatars. I think it’s the perfect passive aggressive anti-Valentine’s Day shirt. The Trashed group is FREE to join.
Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, eBody (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Ocacin

The Piercing – I think half the reason I love septum piercings in Second Life is that I could never pull one off in real life. This pretty heart septum piercing is a FREE group gift at Empyrean Forge. The Empyrean Forge group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there are other previous group gifts still available. This piercing includes a color change hud that lets you adjust the color of individual parts of the jewelry.

Oh Sunshine Day

Oh Sunshine Day
Well Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you are all fine and well. Isn’t it amazing how sometimes your outfit can completely affect your mood? I do not mind admitting that I really had fun with this cute, yet simple outfit. I hope you enjoy these fun FREEbies as much as I do. First, I’ll tell you all about this fun skirt from Cremosas, then the equally fun pearls from Maxi Gossamer.

Skirt

There isn’t anything I dislike about this group gift skirt available at Cremosas. I also think it’s one of those versatile statement wardrobe pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down depending on where and when you want to wear it.  To get your copy of this FREE group gift, head over to Cremosas and join their FREE in-world group. There is no cost to join the group. Alternatively if you do not have a group slot open, you can pick up this skirt on the Marketplace for just 50 linden, no group needed.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), EVE – (Pulpy, Slim), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Altamura, TMP

Pearls

I love these FREE group gift pearls from Gossamer Jewelry. They are such a pale shade of pink, I almost didn’t notice they weren’t white. They also come in several versions or variations for lots of versatility. There are 7 individual necklaces, a short combo, and a long combo.  Pru is wearing the “long combo” version. Each necklace can be resized via touch menu.  To get your copy make your way to the Maxi Gossamer/Gossamer Jewelry store and join the FREE-to-join Gossamer Jewelry group. The group gift vendor is on the wall near the entrance.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/12/2018 – Deadly Nightshade

Deadly Nightshade
Hello Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog for another edition of Fab Free Designer Friday. This week I get to talk about Deadly Nightshade. Not the plant, the shop! Deadly Nightshade is self-described as “bringing you quality avatar accessories of the magical and otherworldly varieties.” After browsing the shop, I felt like it was a sort of Second Life version of an Occult shop. At Deadly Nightshade you’d purchase accessories and other items to aid in an otherworldly or magical appearance. Most of the items I encountered are unisex as well, so the guys can get accessorized also.

The Deadly Nightshade shop has a very minimalist setup with signage on the floor guiding you to different types of merchandise. There are walking accessories, wearable auras, gachas, and more to explore. I even spotted a tiny bit of women’s clothing, and some decor. The landing point is a round central room where you’ll find everything you need in regards to shop information, group gifts, and events. Fitting with the round room, the circulation desk at Deadly Nightshade is also round. You’ll want to check out the desk, it’s where you’ll find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift. Both the Fab Free group and the Deadly Nightshade group are FREE to join. So if you’re looking for something different, something magical perhaps, you won’t want to miss out on these Fabulous FREEBies!

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.

Heart Exposed

Heart Exposed
Hello hello Fab Free’rs. I hope everyone had a fun Halloween yesterday. We made the best of a rainy night in my little world. I kind of like to sprinkle a little “Halloween” throughout the year anyway, so it never truly ends. Whether it be in the style of something I wear, or some of the decor in my home, there’s always an element of Halloween.

Heart Exposed

The darkly adorable dress Pru is wearing is exactly the sort of manner in which I like to keep Halloween around all year long. It’s super cute and just the right amount of macabre. The dress by MOoh! is a FREE Designer Circle group gift at the currently running Designer Circle event. The Designer Circle group is FREE to join. This FREEbie from MOoh! comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: eBody, Standard Fitted Mesh (a single size), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Keep it Sn@tched

Sn@tch also has a FREE gift out at the Designer Circle event. One of which is this pretty choker Pru is wearing. I thought it complimented the gift from MOoh! really well. The choker has resize scripts for easy fitting and is simple enough for every day and pretty enough for something formal. Along with the choker there is a skybox gift included in the Sn@tch gift package at Designer Circle. The “Evil” skybox FREEbie also appears to include furniture and some decor. I am including the vendor ad for the Sn@tch skybox gift below.
Skybox of Evil Vendor Ad SM

Feelin’ Lovey Dovey

I am always interested in FREE hair, especially when it’s really beautiful like this group gift hair from Lovey Dovey. The Jenna hairstyle is a full fatpack that includes all the available color options. So don’t worry if you’re not into the green style Pru chose, there are plenty of other options! The Lovey Dovey group is currently 100 linden to join, and there are 2 addition gifts. The two other group gifts at Lovey Dovey are add-on bangs which can be worn with any hairstyle for a slight change.

Here are the details, enjoy!
