FabFree Designer Features: Vips Creations

Hey FabFree! It’s been a hot minute since I did a FabFree Designer Features post, but I’m back today with a feature on Vips Creations. Vips Creations specializes in women’s mesh clothing, and they have many elegant and beautiful designs to choose from.

FabFree Group Gift

The current FabFree group gift at Vips Creations is the Louissa outfit in silver and white. It includes a dress and shoes. Many outfits Vips Creations sells include an outfit and shoes combo, so it’s a lovely set. The FabFree group is always free to join. To join the group, copy and paste the following link into SL: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about.

Store Group

VIP Creations also has exclusive gifts for their VIP group. The group gifts change every couple of months. The group only costs 2L, so it’s a great investment. The current gift up on the wall is the “Karen Spring” outfit, which includes a dress with red poppies on it and red shoes.

Other Freebie Groups’ Gifts

There are a number of additional free gifts at Vips Creations, if you join various freebie groups posted near their VIP group gift. Below is a list of these groups’ gifts currently available with information about the groups. Most of these groups are free to join, but some of them have a small join fee. It is worth these small fees to get access to great gifts across the grid.

  • Fitmesh Fanatics Group Gift (Free to Join), Calla Wedding Dress

  • SLF&O Group Gift (Free to Join), Liza Shoes

  • DM Modas Group Gift (Free to Join), Meli Shoes

  • Fashionable Group Gift (Free to Join), Gein Ankle Boots

  • MLM Offers Group Gift (5L to Join), Summer Handbag (on the other side of the bag there is a blue starfish)

  • Mesh Avatar Appearance Maniacs (MAAM) Group Gift (50L to Join), Isabella Golden

  • Third Life Group Gift (10L to Join), Chloe Handbag – Leather Patchwork

Lucky Boards

VIP Creations also has many lucky boards to play at their store, and they are free for all to play (no group required). The lucky boards contain rotating prizes for Mesh and Classic avatars, so hopefully theres some free goodies in there for everyone!

Have a wonderful evening, FabFree!

I’m a VIP!

Vips Creations

Good afternoon, FabFree! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day so far. One of the things I have enjoyed the most about the last few weeks is showcasing designers I have not covered before on the blog! In regular times, I have my designers I tend to stick with and clothing styles I like to feature,  but I LOVE so many other different creators that I don’t always have the chance to show you.  There just isn’t enough time to show it all! FabFree at Fifteen has helped me branch out and grow. Today I am showing some beautiful products made by Vips Creations, a store I have admired for a long time but have not yet had the pleasure to showcase on FabFree! Let’s dig into all the finds. Some of what I am showing today is their offerings from FabFree at Fifteen, but I also dipped into other gifts available at their store. Today, I’m a VIP!

Roberta

In my photos today, I am wearing the gorgeous “Roberta” summer outfit Vips Creations has out for FabFree at Fifteen for only 75 Lindens.

Vips Creations

The “Roberta” summer outfit includes:

  • A long floral summer dress, which fits Lara, Freya, Isis, Venus, Physique, Hourglass, and Fitmesh.
  • A lovely green handbag.
  • A mini-pack of wedge shoes, which fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. I discuss the wedges in more detail below!

Love Those Wedges!

The shoes that come with the 75L set are absolutely fabulous, so I had to show some up-close views. They are a set of summer wedges. In the 75L package, a HUD for the shoes is included, which allows you to change the colour of the shoes to brown, teal, red, and green.

Vips Creations

Vips Creations also graciously gave out a set of these wedge shoes in magenta as a free gift for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group for the event. For more information about what else is included in Vips Creationsfree gift package for FabFree at Fifteen, check out Allison’s recent post HERE. An up-close shot of the free pair of shoes available is posted below.

Vips Creations has even more pretty items available for FabFree at Fifteen! Here are more things to check out which have already been shown on the blog this past month. Make sure you check out the other bloggers’ posts, because they wear these items SO well! ❤

  • Allison recently blogged the beautiful free dress that goes with the free shoes shown in my post today, so make sure you see her lovely post HERE to see the matching dress! She looks absolutely fabulous in it!
  • Starla also blogged the 15L jeans they have out HERE and they are absolutely Fab.  I think they look spectacular on Starla!

FabFree at Fifteen ends on August 6th, so you only have a couple days left to get everything!

Thanks for reading, FabFree!

Slay, Queens!

Slay
Hey FabFree! You know I love to make these diva looks every so often. I don’t have much to say tonight except, “Slay, queens!”

The sale is still out!

My hair is from Sintiklia. I got it on last weekend’s Happy Weekend sale, and it is still available at the time of posting today. It includes a great style hud! I just loved this diva style and had to get it. It includes bangs and options to wear the hair in front on either side of your chest. If you wear the free group tag, you will pay 51L for the hair after the group refund (9Ls are refunded to you after you pay 60). In fact, you can do this trick every weekend there is Happy Weekend at Sintiklia to save some Ls. Please go ASAP to get this if you want it as the sale is technically over but it’s still out for you to snag. 😉

Let it rainnn

rainnn has some fun new gifts out, including this adorable mouthie that looks a bit like a Hershey’s chocolate kiss that sits in your mouth. This is a FabFree gift! Just join our free group to get it. The mouthie includes a hud that allows you to change the colours of the chocolate kiss and the wrapper. I am also wearing the free SL Frees & Offers  group gift from rainnn, which are the cute cherry earrings. The earrings include a hud as well to colour the cherries and the “stems” and metals of the earrings.

Cherry Bomb

I have another great find from the Posh Event to share. This awesome bag costs only 5L from the Drama Queens booth. You also get the bag in several other colours, including lemon and grape. This is the cherry version and it has goodies inside it including a large sum of cash to keep your shopping addiction going! 🛍️The current round of Posh Event closes on May 23rd.

Enjoy, FabFree!

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Like a few of the other ladies here at Fab Free, I also had a difficult and emotional weekend. A RL family issue hit me kind of hard, but thankfully Carson passed me the brownies and listened patiently while I had a small meltdown (thanks for listening, bro!). 🙂

Then I decided to pick myself up, throw on my favorite color (pink), do a little “wishful make-upping,” and head outside for a walk in the SL sunshine. I wound up at Small Town Green – it was chilly and snow was still on the ground, but this has always been one of my favorite sims for wandering and taking photos. It’s a bit smaller of a town now than it used to be, although still lovely and definitely worth a visit.

A Really Volcanic Ensemble

When I heard that S@BBiA had put out a new lucky board gift, I hurried over to the store and planted myself in a chair. I only had to wait a short while before an “S” popped up (very unusual!) and I received this fabulous coat, skirt, and sweater ensemble. The outfit only comes in one mesh size, but what’s really nice is that a HUD is included so you can turn on or off any of the pieces. For instance, you could wear the coat and sweater with a pair of jeans, or only the coat, only the skirt and sweater… I’m sure you get the idea! I’m not certain if you need to be a member of the S@BBiA group in order to use the lucky boards since I had my tag on at the time. But the group is free to join, and lots of other gifts are available to pick up, so there is no reason not to join, right?

For accessories, I headed over to the ULTRA Event. There are quite a few nice gifts available at this round, including the gold and amethyst (I think) jewelry I’m wearing by Modish, and this gorgeous handbag by Clef de Peau. You do need to join the ULTRA group in order to grab the gifts, but the group is free to join.

My shoes are by Ingenue, and I love the slightly retro look of them. They were set out a few days ago for Fifty Linden Friday, but as of this publishing, you can still grab them – or a pair in teal – for 50L. They come in sizes for Maitreya and Slink (high) mesh feet.

I’m Wishful Make-Upping!

My skin and makeup are by Amara Beauty for the January Powder Packa brand-new “mystery box” designed specifically for wearers of Catwa mesh heads. While the box itself is definitely not 75L or less, I do feel that it was a very good value, considering all that you get. This month, there were skins, makeups, and eyelashes from 12 different designers, several of which were thoughtful enough to include Omega appliers so you can use the items on heads other than Catwa.

The Julia applier that I’m wearing today included 3 different skin tones with 2 eyebrow colors (or no eyebrows, if you prefer to add your own), 9 eyeshadows, 18 lipsticks, and even included Omega body appliers. I hadn’t worn Amara Beauty skins before, and I have to say that this one is really pretty and a different look for me. I will definitely be checking them out again! 😀

5000 Thanks yous

loft_001

I took a break from organizing and photographing the ginormous Fantasy Gacha Carnival finds to run around a bit… play some lucky boards, catch up on the group gifts.  No luck on the lucky boards but I did find a new handbag at S@bbia on the group board. The bag comes with a color changer for four wardrobe choices. Score!

Now I have a new handbag… I need a new outfit to go with it, right?  I popped over to Prism and found just the thing.  This perfect-for-Fall sweater, skirt and leggings combo is up at Prism as a free 5000 Thank you gift to the Group members! Prism’s Group, it is free to join and the gifts are left up for a generous length of time. You can still grab the multiple sets back in the group gifts area. Plus, Prism has several Hunts running AND has an extensive Discount area.
Hope you Fab Folks are having a great Saturday!

A Vintage Happy Easter from Sonatta Morales!

Happy Easter from ****8*  Sonatta Morales  *8****!  The woman known for impeccable period clothing has placed this timeless FREE *8* Aprile Dress (mesh) inside one of the several bunnies scattered throughout her store.  Only one bunny contains the dress…so you’ll need to hop along and find out which one it is!  No need to join a group, this dress is FREE for everyone to grab.  I love the beautiful weave on the texture of this dress and it comes with a neck scarf (not shown).
Happy Easter from ****8*  Sonatta Morales  *8****!

I’ve finished off this look with this fab pink overtheshoulder sweater, a gacha item at The Chapter Four, from *COCO*.  The *COCO* gacha is 75L per play and I scored my favorite color on the first try!  The bag is from U.one Deluxe PopArt Mode and this particular style is no longer available, however, this store has TONS of  clothing and accessory items from 1L-50L!

Happy shopping and stay Fabulously Free! ❤ ❤

{Indyra} Grand Re-opening Group Gifts!

Greetings!

A quickie post to give you a heads up on the {Indyra} Grand Re-Opening! {Indyra} has re-opened with a totally rebuilt shopping area and store…it is gorgeous and, to celebrate, they’ve been giving fabulous group gifts all week!  Unfortunately, I just found out about this today and it is the last day to pick up the FREE group gifts (FREE to join).  So if you want to grab these FREE group gifts, you will need to get there today.  The sim is busy, so you may need to try a few times to get in…but it is so worth it for this stunning non-mesh Solange skirt and top (also comes with a mini skirt option), Marina Totebag (Lagoon), Suha Necklace and Earrings (Blue Curacao) AND the Marina Wedges (Lagoon)!!!  That’s right it is a complete outfit…just make sure you grab all the items in the four vendors in the middle of the store.
