Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/19/2018 – Hanau

Hanau Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Once again we are bringing the week to an end on the Fab Free blog with this week’s Designer Friday post. This week we are taking a look at the Hanau main store. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Hanau, they are probably best known for women’s applier clothing and lingerie. However, they also have mesh clothing and some accessories. I think the colorful tree outside their store is a great visual representation of their clothing style. No silly, it doesn’t look like trees, but it is vibrant and playful! Also there are lots of opportunities for you to score some really cute FREE clothes at Hanau. Keep reading to learn how.
Hanau Offers & Gifts
The Hanau store is well laid out with clear signage. I love it when shops are so easy to navigate! At the landing point is where you’ll find the “information wall” and the “circulation desk” that most if not all shops seem to have. This is also where you’ll find various group gifts. One of such gifts is the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift was previously announced in a post by Love here. It is FREE to all Fab Free group members, and of course the Fab Free group is FREE to join. At the circulation desk is where you’ll find the most recent Hanau group gifts. The Hanau group also happens to be FREE to join at this time.

As you browse through the Hanau main store, you’ll see a gacha room. This is also where the FREE for everyone lucky letter boards are located along with the FREE for everyone Midnight Mania board. I say “FREE for everyone” because these boards do not require any group to participate. I didn’t get the exact time, however the Lucky Letter boards do seem to change quickly. I hope you enjoy shopping at Hanau and all the fabulous freebies they have to offer.

Sweet Summer in Venice

The Cart Wash Sale has begun! The theme is Spring Freshness and it will run at The Wash from March 16th through March 30th, so you’ll have plenty of time for shopping all the amazing bargains. I’m showing you two fabulous deals in this post!

Sweet Summer in Venice

I stopped by the HANAU cart first and picked up this Floral Summer Outfit in Combination 1 for just 10L. It comes in several other colors if pink is not your thing. For your tiny sum of 10L, you get the mesh skirt, mesh top, and the matching necklace. The outfit comes in all the standard sizes, so you are sure to find your fit.

I also headed over to The Dark Fae‘s cart where I nabbed up these amazing platform heels! Woo! They include the socks (which have a fab fab fab color change hud for lots of fun coloring choices, including a skully option which is just so fun!) and you can also buy the pumps in lots of different colors. For only 10L a pop, I wanted them all!

** Quick added note! These shoes come in regular mesh fits, as well as slink and Maitreya mesh fits!

I did make a leap over to the Arcade Gacha. Now that the crowds have died down, I picked up this lovely style by Exile called Blink for only 50L per spin. There are two styles in the machine (Blink or Wink) and both are equally lovely as Exile styles always are.

HANAU Skulls & Roses

“We’re havin a heat wave
A tropical heat wave
The temperatures rising, it isn’t surprising
She certainly can, can can!”

– Irving Berlin

Okay, I realize my photo is not very “tropical” but I couldn’t help myself. So, now that I got that out of my system, you guessed it, more Fabulous Heat Wave items!! We just can’t get enough! For this post I have the great opportunity to show you what you’ll find at the Hanau Cart. Now that I think about it, these daring diagonal ruffles on the asymmetrical sleeveless top Pru is wearing does sort of remind me of “CanCan” skirts. These fun flirty top and mini skirt sets are just 10 lindens each at the Hanau Cart. This specific set with the skulls and roses fabric is a little bit vampy, while still summery and fun. Both the top and skirt are full mesh, and come with appropriate alpha layers. You’ll find cute casual dresses and a few cover-ups for your swimwear at the Hanau Cart, so don’t pass this one by!

Boxing Day means shopping…so, shopping I’ve done!

It’s Boxing Day here in Canada, a tradition we kept from our former British Colony days. It usually means 1 of 2 things: A) We go out and brave the crowds for wonderful Boxing Day sales, or B) We laze around fiddling with Christmas gifts and eating leftover turkey. I thought I’d mix a bit of both, laze around in RL and go shopping in SL! Of course, that means some goodies to show off to you all.

boxingday1

First off, I’m sure by now, you all know about the Happy Holidays Event going on at the Wash Sim. I visited the HANAU booth, and picked out this beautiful gown. The HANAU – Winter Dreams Gown Ice, is a sleek, mesh gown, perfect for the parties that are going to be happening between now and New Years. It is only L$10, and if you prefer purple, there is a Lavender version available as well. For you fellow SLink wearers, there is also a set of matching polish appliers! If you are in the market for some after party, intimate wear, check out the pretty lingerie being offered. I’ve included a shot of the HANAU Booth, but you really should just go and take a good close look. You have until the end of the month!

The lovely necklace I am wearing is part of a set that includes earrings and a bracelet. I was bad, and didn’t get a good close up of the other pieces, but I assure you, they are just as beautiful as this necklace. The Promised Morrow Set, from Chop Zuey is the final Advent Gift from their free-to-everyone calendar. I really love how versatile this set will be, as it is not so obviously a Christmas based gift. I do not know how long the calendar will be out, so do not wait too long to go grab this set, as well as the other gifts that are still available.

boxingday3

Now, if you are admiring the lovely poses I’ve used in this post, you need to just head on down to //elephante poses// and grab them! They are from Day 6 of the //elephante poses// 12 Days of Christmas, and are free for everyone. You get the 3 elegant poses I’ve used, as well as a snowflake to wear in your left hand. The gifts were supposed to only be out until Christmas day, but as life usually does, things got busy and the gifts will be out until the end of the month. Not everything is put out yet, so make sure you keep going back. Don’t forget to grab the gifts from Bella Elephante too!.

OK my fabulous readers, it is time I give in and stop being lazy, maybe even get out of my pj’s! LOL. I hope you all have a wonderful day, and I will be back soon. Until then, TTFN!

Merry Crisis I mean Christmas!

Knockers Christmas 1

As Christmas creeps closer, I felt it was time to do a little decorating. Better late than not at all, right? Hehehe Right now there are several FREE gifts underneath the giant Christmas Tree at Fab Free Headquarters. Several of the gifts are perfect for those of you like me that waited until the last minute to fill your personal space with some Christmas cheer! Each of the items pictured are FREE gifts from one of the fantastic Fab Free designers.

The chair Pru is sitting in is part of the gift from Storax Tree. This cozy chair with it’s floral green fabric has a resize script and several poses, some with props! I think it looks great with the end table from CIRCA. The table has beautiful textures and is quite charming with the candle and holly on top.  I also found this cute little rug to help tie the pieces together. The detailed rug is by Dirty Little Secret. Lastly, I got this “Gemmy” Christmas tree by DDM Designs. I thought it was a great alternative to a traditional Christmas tree. It also has a resize script, I shrunk mine down quite a bit. As I mentioned before, each of these items are FREE under the Christmas Tree at FFHQ!

While out picking up these lovely home accents to decorate my little space, I took advantage of the opportunity to wear the cutest Christmas outfit I’ve ever seen! hahaha

I just love this high-waist jumper and puff-sleeved sweater by Knockers. These items are examples of their gacha items available at the Merry Crisis Gahca event. The jumper and top come in several variations, and can be worn seamlessly together or as separates. Both can be had for just $70 lindens per item per play! To go with my cute new outfit, I needed just the right pair of shoes. Don’t I always? I found these cute little ballet flats by Alaskametro on the Marketplace for just $10 lindens!

The house decorated, my outfit adorable, I took a few extra minutes to apply just one last FREE gift I picked up from under the Christmas tree at FFHQ. This super cute manicure set from HANAU. Now, I hope you enjoy all this Christmas cheer as much as I do!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
