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!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 09/29/2018 – Artizana

Hello Fab Free’rs, and happy weekend! I am excited to share with you another designer of the week, Artizana. Seriously, how pretty is the photo of the Artizana exterior and the front desk?! I have to tell you, the grounds surrounding the Artizana store are as equally worth exploring as the shop itself. The interior reminds me of the art nouveau style. Artizana is self described as a fashion house established in 2007 with fashion for both men and women. Yes, you read that right, there is menswear at Artizana.  Their unique style is inspired by African culture, so expect to see lots of vivid prints and vibrant colors.

Artizana’s in-world group has a one time join fee of 99 linden. If you shop with your Artizana group tag, you’ll get a 5% discount on purchases. Also there are quite a few Artizana VIP gifts, including one men’s semi-formal outfit. Each of the items pictured above is a free VIP group gift. In the same area of the store you’ll also find a few lucky letter chairs, and additional gifts for other store associated groups.

As you can see there are quite a few gift items to be had at Artizana. In this area is also of course where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to all Fab Free group members. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free group tag to claim this gift. If you’re not already a Fabulously Free in SL group member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always free to join. Kat did a beautiful job of showing of the Fab Free gift from Artizana in her post “Beautiful Blue.”

Teal for Two

Two for Teal
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Like my new claws? They are a super cute new group gift at E.Marie. Along with the new nails, I picked up this dress from MH Unique. It reminded me a lot of the MH Unique Design dress Aline showed in her post here, which I missed out on. So I was happy to see this more recent group gift. I kinda feel like it’s been one of those “long weeks” even though it’s only Wednesday. Ha! So bare with me and I’ll get you all the hows and wheres of getting your hands on these fantastic group gifts.

The Claws – I love that these are mesh nails that work with bento hands rather than nail appliers. This particular set is a current group gift at E.Marie. The set comes in a few sizes, and the pink/teal color gradient with pretty gold flecks. There are also a few other equally cute group gifts available. The E.Marie group is 50 linden to join. I’ll include a copy of the vendor ad so you can get a better look at these super cute nails.
Sizes Included: Slink Dynamic, Vista Prohand, Maitreya Lara
e.marie // Group Gift July

The Dress – This cute sleeveless dress is a current group gift at MH Unique Design. The dress comes with a color change hud that allows you to pick from 10 solid colors, that all seem to have this pretty satiny finish. The MH Unique Design group has a one time join fee of 100 linden at this time.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic Curvy

In the Cool of the Pool

In the Cool of the Pool
Hello again Fab Free’rs. I’m happy to see you. Truth be told I couldn’t think of a better way for this would be mermaid to spend the afternoon than floating in the cool of the pool under the shade of a palm tree. Speaking of mermaids, the Makeover Room gift from Entice is very mermaid-y. I know that’s not a word, but I couldn’t find a better way to describe this cute gift. Also, I found the perfect summery pink pout at Pout!. I went ahead and included the vendor ads for each of these free gifts so you can see the colors and options. Keep reading for the where and the how.

The Dress – Honestly, I’m not sure if this blue and purple gradient little dress with the pretty scalloped edges is a dress, a swimsuit cover, or what, but I like it a lot. Wear it how you please, this versatile gift is a free gift for Makeover Room group members. In addition to this pretty one-piece version, there is a two piece bikini style top and skirt version. Both are equally cute and equally revealing, especially the skirt. This free Makeover Room group gift from Entice comes in several sizes. To get yours head over to the Makeover Room and join the free-to-join Makeover Room group. The gift is waiting at the entrance to the event space.

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

The Pout – Where else but Pout! would have just the right pink lipstick applier?! Pout! has a lipstick applier set as their current group gift (there are past gifts also available for 1 linden). The free “Bubble pop” lipstick set has 5 lip colors in several applier options. The Pout! group is free to join at this time. You’ll find the Pout! group gift to the left as you enter the store.

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

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

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!

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.
