Fab Free Designer Friday – 2/17/2017 – MOoH

MOoH
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs and welcome to this weeks edition of Fab Free Designer Friday! This week’s shop is MOoH and I have to start by saying wow, this store has grown so much in the last few years. I can recall when MOoH was still a very young store with a hand-full of items. Now they have an enormous main store! I’m proud to see how far this cute shop has come. The above photo shows the entrance at the right half of the store. Yes I said right half! haha You’ll find information boards about various events and affiliations here. Inside you’ll find tons of cute quality ladies clothing in styles to suit everyday looks to formals, and most things in between. While clothing does seem to be the main focus at MOoH, there are also shoes and accessories, plus a courtyard full of gachas. You’ll notice the center gacha yard, along with a row of event information on art easels at the MOoH landing point.
More MOoH
After you’ve browsed your way through the gacha machines, which I dare you to not play, you’ll be met with another cutely decorated area of gifts and information. Here there’s a MOoH subscriber so you can stay informed without taking up a group slot. Additionally there is a re-delivery terminal, and all kinds of store information. The best info has to be the group gift info however. You should see the exclusive Fab Free group gift right away. It’s right next to that rainbow Fab Free group joiner. The Fab Free group is of course always FREE to join. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor to get your FREE gift. Sheidy blogged the super cute gift in her recent post here. You’ll also find other group gifts and the MOoH shop group gifts in this cute corner. The MOoH group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however the benefits are almost too numerous to list! There is of course the group gift, which you’ll need your MOoH group tag for and there’s the monthly gift gift card raffle. You’ll definitely want to take advantage of the chance to score a 500 linden gift card! Each month there are also group only discounts, a 150 linden gift card gift, there are group only Lucky Chairs, and group members get a 10% discount on the purchase of store gift cards. I’m almost certain I’ve left something off that lengthy list. I definitely encourage you to take the time to explore the MOoH store for yourself, even if it’s just to oogle all the cute decor and window-shop, you won’t be disappointed!

Spring Steampunk

Spring Steampunk (full)

If the sky that we look upon well should tumble and fall

Taking pictures in one’s backyard has its perks but recently it’s been more of a hazard lately than anything else. After being nudged out of the treehouse for the umpteenth time by Commander (a polar bear that loves being up in trees; who would have thought) I decided to take my chances out on the grid. Thanks to a grumpy laptop, it’s been a while since I’ve managed to snap some shots on the many beautiful sims that Second Life has to offer but it seemed to be in a good mood today and lucky thing because the items I have to show you today deserve a marvelous backdrop.

Let’s start off with the newly updated Fabulously Free in SL group gift from MOoH! (thank you, Dalriada Delwood!). No matter how full my virtual closet gets (it’s pretty stuffed let me tell you), I always make room for clothing from MOoH! With their signature eye-catching designs and gorgeous texturing, it’s always a challenge to stop squeeing loudly whenever I see a new offer from this store. You can bet it’s what I did when I first laid eyes on the Janis dress but I really don’t think I can be blamed. After months of thick sweaters, this sleeveless, belted number was exactly what I needed in my life. Not only is the cut of this dress perfect for future Spring frolics, it’s deep lavender color is reminiscent of a field of flowers sharing the same name. Add that to the flowery lace overlay and well, Love hit the nail right on the head that this is a dress that can make you all excited for Spring!

The Janis dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Five Standard Mesh (XS-XL)
  • Five Fitmesh  (XS-XL)
  • Belleza Isis
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Included in the gift package is an alpha layer as well and with so many sizes to choose from I think there’s a good chance that you’ll find a fit for your avatar. As with all Fabulously Free in SL group gifts, the Janis dress is free of charge. You’ll only need to have your group tag activated and you won’t even have to pay a single L to join the group. While you’re at the store, do consider joining the MOoH! group as there are monthly group gifts and a monthly gift card for group members. The join fee for the MOoH! store group stands at a 100L but with all the goodies that you get, it’s a bargain.

Steampunk Spring

And the mountains should crumble to the sea

With February being the mushy month that it is, I decided to take a small break from all of that and visit The Broken Heart Fair. There’s a wide variety of goodies to be had at the fair, from decor to accessories to clothing and of course shoes. Most of the stalls had 30L or 35L items out as well as items going for 50% off and I had the good luck of grabbing this pair of Steampunk boots from Luas for only 35L. There’s no resisting a good pair of boots and I simply adore the chained gears detailing and those spikes that will no doubt add a subtle edge to any outfit. These Steampunk boots come with an alpha layer to help with the fit if you’re still on a classic avatar.

I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t she’d a tear

While you’re at The Broken Heart Fair, don’t forget to pick up the gifts that are available at the stores (just look for the heart-shaped box). You don’t need to have a group tag to get them and opening up boxes of free gifts after an outing is a fine way to pass the time yes? The bag in the picture is one such gift that you can get at the fair just by stopping by the Poet’s Heart stall. While it’s a long way to Halloween, I couldn’t resist bringing this cute, well-detailed bat bag with me on my adventures. There are two different variations of this bag in the prize package, one with a hold animation and one without.

The Broken Heart Fair is running until the 15th so hurry down and grab your gifts or do a little bit of shopping before it ends.

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And that’s a wrap. Have fun on Valentine’s Day guys! If you’re wondering about the song, well, train tracks.

Going dotty

Going dotty

Help! The weather’s been so dotty lately.

I don’t know what’s going on but the weather’s been acting kinda strange recently. Not so strange that it’s raining literal cats and dogs (thankfully) but it seems as if it can’t make up its mind most of the time. Some days the sky is heavy with dark clouds while on others it’s surprisingly sunny for this time of year and on other days things can flip between the two at the drop of a dime. I just can’t figure it out but anyway, at least I’ve found an outfit versatile enough to keep up with all of this odd weather.

As they say, if you can’t beat them…

Join them! I’ve gone dotty as well with the Lily outfit from MOoH! (it’s so much fun typing out this store’s name). You can always count on classic prints to get you through the day and none are more classic, or classy when it comes down to it than black and white polka dots. Personally, I found that it paired off rather well with the prim cut of this collared dress. I like fantasy clothes as much as the next Second Life(r) but it’s always great to find something that I’d actually wear outside of this virtual world.

As you can see from the picture above there are two ways of wearing the Lily outfit. The dress itself is a sleeveless number (perfect for when the sun decides to show itself) and flatters your figure by being cinched at the waist by a white belt. The dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitmesh size so you can most certainly test it out on your mesh body should you own one. If it gets chillier (or if you just feel like rocking the cute librarian look) throw on the comfy, duel toned cardigan. I simply love the little bow that holds the two sides together, as it just adds to the girlish look of the whole outfit. The cardigan comes in five standard mesh sizes as well (XXS-L) and one fitmesh size. Both outfits have their own spiffy alpha layer and not only do they help with the fit, they also ensure that you can wear the cardigan with a separate outfit as well.

The Lily outfit is on sale at the MOoH! main store until the 26th of the month and is priced at 85L. That’s a little over the FabFree price cap but if you join the MOoH! group as I’ve already done (-crosses another thing off the bucket list-) you can take advantage of the free 150L gift card that’s available to members to get this dress for free. MOoH! has a one-time join fee of 100L but it’s a great investment in the long run as the gift cards are given out monthly. If you haven’t picked it up already, the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift at MOoH! has been changed out recently.

Heeled and tasseled

With Commander being a bit grumpy recently I’ve had to stay home to make sure he doesn’t get up to any mischief. Of course, that also means more time to poke about the SL Marketplace. I came across these pretty pair of strappy heels from Ferina’s Creations and immediately thought about wearing them with the Lily outfit. There’s nothing like wearing a bit of red with a monochrome outfit to make things pop. I simply adore the detail of the tassel on these heels though the best part about them is that you’ll only have to spend 1L to add them to your collection. Note however that these heels are made for Slink high feet only.

A little bit of bounce

It seems that I’ve been more inclined towards shorter hairstyles recently doesn’t it? It’s nice to switch things up for a change and it helps that there have been not a few great offers for shorter hairstyles. One such is the free gift that Analog Dog has out for the January round of Gacha Guardians. I’ve come to associate wild, fun curls with this brand and the Charlotte hair certainly did not disappoint. This bouncy hairstyle has a retro feel about it, acting as the perfect topper for the Lily outfit. In the gift package, you’ll receive a bald base, an alpha layer as well as an easy to use hud that lets you choose from twelve fantasy colors as well as control the ombre fades and tints of the hair. There are loads of other gifts out at the Gacha Guardians event and you’ll need to be part of the Gimme Gacha group to be able to scoop them up. Don’t worry though the group is free to join so all you need is a group slot and you’re good to go!

Another group gift

Speaking of free group gifts, there’s a new one currently out at Hello Dave. The pictures don’t do them any justice but the Spot Me manicure in nude that I’m wearing pairs up very nicely with the entire outfit as well. Personally, I find that Hello Dave puts out manicures with very interesting designs and it certainly doesn’t hurt that they change out their free group gifts on the regular too. The group is free to join as well so go ahead and treat yourself to a mani and pedi! Hello Dave nails work with Slink mesh hands and some mesh hands that are compatible with the Omega system. While you’re there at the store don’t forget to pick up the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift as well. Two of the sets have been blogged by Kat {HERE} and myself {HERE} and you can get a closer look {HERE}.

And that’s a wrap for today! The weather’s looking pretty dodgy again so I’m retreating back indoors. Oh, but before I leave, here’s a closer look at the Hello Dave group gift I was talking about.

Nefarious Plans

ZigZag 1

Even villains have day jobs.

Neckwarmer Man blew my cover… again. So the earmuffs are gone. But thankfully KoKoLoRes Hair has out a new group gift for January, which means I have a new hairdo. Just call me “Spike.” That old moniker just wasn’t me. And I think I like the name Dillon too… after the hair… as my other Alias. Got to have a lot of aliases when your in the business of crime. Crime and coffee that is. And I’ll be serving up your coffee at the local coffee and tea bar here at Tanya’s.

The shirt off the rack.

They say you have to blend in. Look normal. Especially if you’re running the day shift at a coffee bar when Neckwarmer man is hot on your trail. So I stopped by MOoh! and picked up the latest FabFree Gift. I didn’t even have to steal it, as it was already FREE. Can you believe that? They just leave this stuff lying around. It even came in four colors, fitmesh, and sizes for Maitreya and Slink bodies.

On the lookout…

I know that guy will never give up… wait… did that customer just take an extra creamer for his coffee? See! There are worse villains than me! At least I serve the coffee hot while I plot my nefarious plans. Okay, semi-hot. I don’t want the customers getting spoiled.

He Was Late AGAIN!

Snapshot_002

Soaking up the sun

After a long hot shower, my damp hair still wrapped up in a towel, I plopped myself down on my bed comforter trying to let the morning sun cheer me up, still struggling to figure out how to deal with the events of the previous dud of an evening.  You know…  the one where I spent all day making myself all up for a New Years Eve party that he said he wanted to go to, and then waited hours for him to show up late (AGAIN), drunk and “with a lampshade on his head”.  If there is one thing you can always count on with him, it’s a funny story.  It’s not quite funny yet, but I am sure it will be one day.

My Fuzzy Pink Attire

My fuzzy pink robe, slippers and head wrap were just what I needed this morning, and thank goodness I was able to pick them up as a free group gift at MOoH! This group is 100L to join, but after you join you can pick up this group gift, hit the raffle board and grab the 150L instore credit that you can pick up every month!

Yup, he actually said that…

With my bedroom door slightly ajar, it was open just enough to stare icy daggers through him down the narrow hall and through to the kitchen where he was happily fixing breakfast, crashing, banging and whistling a song that was completely unrecognizable.   Words from the previous evening rolled around in my head…  I think probably the most memorable argument was his “the beer was cold, just sayin!” to my “I shaved above the knee,  just sayin!”. 

Forgiven

He somehow managed to penetrate the icy force field that had built up overnight at the bedroom door with a tray of breakfast just for me and puppydog eyes…  <sighs> Looks like he’s forgiven…  again…

Snowbound

Snowbound

Wishing you a happy holiday.

With all the festive blog posts everyone else was doing, I had to do one of my own… so I put together this snowbound look that can be yours for a total of just 1L. You’ll only need to make two stops to get it all put together.

The dress.

I picked up this dress from Karla Boutique. It includes the miniskirt, the poncho, and the resizable hat. Just go inside the store and buy the gift for 1L and it is yours!

Sizes included.

For the Skirt:

  • Standard fitmesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Venus, Isis, & Freya

For the Poncho: Standard mesh sizes XS – L

A girl always needs shoes.

I picked up these beautiful boots (which I think match my outfit perfectly) from MOoh! at the current round of the Designer’s Circle. This round lasts until January 7th, so you have some time, but who would want to wait when these shoes are Free? Just pay 0L for the box and these beautiful boots are yours!

They are mesh and don’t require any special feet. I found that when I removed my mesh feet they were a perfect fit and looked really nice.

Riding in A Wonderland of Snow

Snapshot_002
Is there a better way to spend a sunshiney winter day than bouncing around in the back of a horse drawn sleigh with a big comfy blanket? I don’t know… I did have a fantastic time spending the day yesterday hunting down little free globes for the Peace on Earth Hunt.  There might have been a big comfy blanket involved in that too!  I suppose both are near the top of my list.  You know, now that I think about it… All of my favourites might be centered around big comfy blankets ;).

Of course the list of great prizes in this hunt is super long and over the next month, I am sure you will see a ton of posts for POE items, but today I am donning two free prizes that helped put together my comfy and casual winter day outfit.

Entice:  Judas Boots

The Entice judas Boots come with a 6 colour texture change hud and an alpha layer if you need it.  These warm slouchy belted boots are adjustable to help you fit them over pants as they come with a resize HUD.  These are a great free winter staple for any girl’s inventory!

MOoH!: Katia Hoodie

The back of the Katia Hoodie at MOoH! is actually what made me jump up and say “HEY, I must show that right away”, because it says “LOVE” across the upper back in red.  I rarely pass up an opportunity like that lol.  The front is just as cute with the plaid shirt peeking out of the snuggly zipped hoodie.  In the folder you will find XXS-L mesh sizes and a co-ordinating alpha layer in case you need it.

Happy hunting!  Remember you are looking for an earth globe hunt icon!
