Fab Free Designer Saturday – 03/18/2017 – Lil’ Tease

Lil Tease Landing Point
Hello Fab Free! Yep, this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday is happening on Saturday this week. Don’t let that be a negative though, this week simply slipped away from me faster than I could keep up with! This week’s featured shop is Lil’ Tease, which is also a new-to-me shop, and I always enjoy exploring new designers. I think you will too. As the name might suggest, this is a women’s clothing shop, however I did come across at least one vendor with menswear. Still a fairly new store, this shop has a handful of mesh women’s clothing items, as well as a few extras. At the Lil’ Tease landing point, you’ll be struck by the cute pink and dark gray/black decor, I also noticed a few unicorns which kinda made my day.
LT Gifts & Boards
A few other things at Lil’ Tease, like the super sweet Fab Free exclusive group gift (Fabulously Free in SL group tag required) also made my day. No really, this completely FREE group gift is not only cute but covered in yummy sweets. To get a better look at this fantastic gift exclusive to Fab Free group members at Lil Tease, check out Astrid’s post here and Edi’s post here.  The gift is located to the left at the landing point. You’ll also see another affiliate group gift available in the same area. If you look to the right, you’ll find the two midnight madness boards, as well as a few gachas. While browsing through the shop, make sure you head to the back room and take a look at the arc of items under the “Newness” sign. Several of those items are marked just 50 lindens. Also, if you’re in the market for some poses, don’t forget to venture upstairs. Happy Shopping!

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs, is it really Monday already? I have no idea where the weekend went, which at one point in my life might have meant I had a really fun weekend. These days, not so much! Ha! I did have a few moments to myself to do a little shopping, because really, in a perfect world that’s what weekends would be for.

High Glam

In honor of the recently celebrated Women’s Day, Hilly Haalan put out a special FREE group gift at the shop’s landing point. I do love that we have a day to honor the women of the world. I am also of the opinion that every day is Women’s Day however. All day, e’ery day! So while I didn’t get to this gift in time for the official celebration day, I’m excited to show this cute cropped sweater just the same. The gift top comes in fitted mesh sizes for the major mesh bodies, as well as a fitmesh size for classic avatars that has a matching alpha. This is a FREE group gift. You will need to join the Hilly Haalan group, which is also FREE to join.

Pixie Fluff

If you’re wondering about this fabulously green hair, it’s at the March round of The Arcade. I’m a sucker for cute hair in general, but this style by Clawtooth was a need-to-have! The Clawtooth machine at The Arcade has 2 hairstyles, this one is called Pixie Fluff, love that, and it comes with an additional hud so you  can change the color of the little clip on the side. The Clawtooth gacha at The Arcade is 75 lindens per play.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Eyes Have It

TallulahWell Hello There! Hi Fab Feer’s, thanks for stoppin’ by. As you can see, I have a lot of purple grey goin’ on today and I am loving it! On a quick side note, Second Life can be weirdly lonely sometimes so I got myself a puppy! This cute little girl’s name is Tallulah. I adore her. Though she was by no means free, I’ll add the information on where to “adopt”a puppy of your own in the credits below, should anyone be interested. Now, back to the FREE stuff!

Everything’s Grey 

To start with, this look was entirely inspired by this knotted t-shirt from Cheeky. I love the mottled muted colors, especially the purple and grey variations. I’m not at all sad about the pentagram either. The shirt is Cheeky’s contribution to the Glam or Goth Hunt. The hunt prize includes this mesh top in body specific sizes including Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, and Slink (Physique, Hourglass). Once you are inside the Cheeky shop, you’ll be hunting a single rose. The hint for Cheeky’s prize is “Is that a door?”. The Glam or Goth Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so you’ll pay 1 linden for your prize.

Turn Around Bright Eyes

These hauntingly pretty bright purple eyes are part of the most recent group gift a Cureless. The vibrant colors and cat-eye style pupils really caught my attention. This FREE group gift includes a set of mesh eyes, and a hud that works as a color/texture change eyes for the included set. It also works as an Omega applier for other Omega compatible eyes. There are 12 total color options with this awesome gift. Most of the colors are bright vibrant colors, a few are soft pastels. To get these gorgeous eyes for yourself you’ll need to join the Cureless group. The Cureless updates group costs a mere 50 lindens to join. The gift can be obtained in the past group notices, or by heading over to the Cureless main store.

Kiss Me Deadly

Finally, I personally love this gradient grey lip color. It reminds me of some of the alternative liquid lipstick colors I’ve seen out in the real world. Needless to say, I was super excited to find it was a FREE, wearable demo at Petit Cambre. The “demo” and the full version work for Catwa or 6DOO heads only. To get your wearable demo version of the 6DOO lipstick applier at Petit Chambre, simply purchase the Demo for zero linden. You’ll find the wearable color in the center of the applier hud.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Stay Wild Flower Child

Flower Child
Hey There Fab Free’rs I’m so glad you’re here! I’m feelin’ a little bohemian today in these fabulous group gifts I came across. I have to tell you, I also feel like I’ve been unintentionally shop-stalking Love lately. We seem to end up at the same stores for our freebie finds. I think that means we both have excellent taste! I picked up these hella cute sunnies at Scandalize not realizing Love had done some Fab Free style shopping at Scandalize herself recently. See what she found in her Ray of Sunshine post. Knowing I wanted to play up the retro feel of these over-sized sunglasses, I also picked up this halter top at Sexy Princess. Finally having always been a sucker for a cute tattoo, I just had to add in the March group gift from Aurica. Ultimately I am pretty pleased with the end result of these gifts all worn together, I hope you like them too!

Good Day Sunshine 

Sunglasses are far and away my favorite accessory. These FREE group gift sunglasses are available at Scandalize. They come in pink (shown) and red color variations and are equipped with re-size scripts for easy fitting. The Scandalize group is FREE to join. You’ll find this gift on the second floor along with several previous group gifts.

Stay Wild 

I think I must be eager for warmer weather, it seems I’m not the only one. I’ve noticed a lot of warm weather styles on the blog lately. This top from Sexy Princess called out to me. It said “Pru, you need me in your closet!” lol I live in a place where it’s hot more often than not, so halter tops are almost always in fashion.  This group gift is not only super cute, it’s completely FREE at Sexy Princess. It’s also just one of the two group gifts I saw available. The top comes in fitmesh sizes, standard mesh sizes, and a body specific size for Maitreya Lara, and one for Slink. The Sexy Princess group is also FREE to join.

Flower Child

How cute is this blue floral tattoo from Aurica?! I love the look of the bright blue flowers. They remind me of those antique china patterns. The applier set is the FREE group gift for March at Aurica. The applier hud is set up to work with Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega compatible bodies and hands. There’s also a note in the package about how to get the tattoo to work with bento hands. The Aurica group is currently FREE to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available. Included among the still available gifts is the New Years Zen post I did at the beginning of the year.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Besom-e kind of Hipster

Sunglasses
Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. I’ll tell you how I’ve spent my Sunday, shopping! The Hipster Fair is happening and it ends March 3rd. Most of the designers have set out an inexpensive gift for the event. While you shop, look for the pink and green mustaches at each booth. The pink gifts are women’s only, and the green gifts are male or unisex gifts. Each designer set the cost of their gift, in my experience most gifts were just 1 linden, while some were FREE, and others were as much as 5 lindens. I probably picked up at least 20 gifts! There were so many good items that I’ll be doing a second post with several more Hipster Fair freebies and cheapies. That said I also want to let you know about a special sales event at Besom.

Now, the most urgent aspect of the sale at Besom is that today is the last day! I wish I had caught wind of the sale sooner. Through the end of the day today (I assume, the sale is a “weekend” sale) all individual hair packs at Besom are marked 50 lindens. The purpose of the sale is to help raise funds for the medical bills of an adorable cat named Spirit. I’m not often one to promote causes, because I’m partly a cynical skeptic, but if ever there was a reason to feed my love of hair, the life of a kitty is just the one. Either way, you can’t beat 50 lindens for the quality hairstyles at Besom. The fact that the purchase will likely be helping a beloved pet is just the icing on the cake!

Normally I would go into a little bit of detail about each of the items in the post, however since there are several items in this post and a time sensitivity, I’ll just give you the basics.  Thanks in advance for understanding.  ❤

Hair – *Besom~Weekend Warrior *Essentials* – 50L – Last Day! (Sunday 2/26) 

Head – CATWA HEAD Lilo Bento

Hair base – Just Magnetized – Basic Hairbase – set 10 for CATWA

Skin – [theSkinnery] Estee (Catwa Applier) – champagne

Sunglasses – B&W Design – DIVINA Sunglasses WOOD – 1L @The Hipster Fair

Tattoo – {TOUCH MIA} Moth Tattoos *Classic Layers/Omega/Slink – 1L @The Hipster Fair

Top – EnvyMe – ::EM:: Mesh Owl Knotted  *Standard Mesh Sizes – 1L @The Hipster Fair

Fab Free Designer Friday on a Sunday – Brandy’s Boutique

Brandy's Boutique Landing GazeboHello Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I have to say mine was quite good except that the weekly Designer Friday post is so late this week. I’d like to blame yesterday’s Midnight Madness with Love, Carson, Kathryn, and Serena… but that really doesn’t fit since the margaritas didn’t happen until late Friday night! The important thing is that this week’s shop Brandy’s Boutique would make a fun shopping excursion on any day. The above photo shows the pretty gazebo that is at the landing point for Brandy’s Boutique. In the gazebo you’ll see signs and information about events and groups Brandy’s Boutique and other shops in the location are associated with. Just follow the cobblestone path out of the gazebo toward Brandy’s Boutique. You’ll know witch path to take by the signs on ground.
Brandy's Boutique ExteriorIt’s definitely winter at Brandy’s Boutique. The snow is falling heavily as you make your way the short distance from the gazebo to the Brandy’s Boutique shop entrance. Directly in front of you will be the main shop, and you’ll also see a men’s outlet to one side, and mesh outlet on the other side. Each spot has a FREE group gift waiting in the center of the room. The Brandy’s Boutique group is FREE to join. For the most part Brandy’s Boutique offers unique stylish women’s clothing with mesh and appliers. You’ll find everything from casual wear to costumes.
Brandy's Boutique GiftsOnce inside the main shop, you’ll find a counter with the Brandy’s Boutique group gift, and a group only discounted item. Also Brandy’s Boutique group members get a 5% discount on their purchases when they shop while wearing their group tag! Directly across from the desk high up on the wall, you’ll also find a few other group gifts, and event items. Included is the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group exclusive gift (you’ll need to switch to your Fab Free group tag for this one) which Edi blogged previously here. You won’t want to miss out on these fun freebies, and don’t forget you can drag the guys in your Second Life along as well for the men’s gift at the men’s outlet. Thanks for reading and happy shopping!

Izzie’s Group Gift Scarf & Glasses Set 

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! Today I have a quick little post about the group gift from Izzie’s to share with you. Honestly it’s just too cute to miss even though there is a group join fee. I love the little snowflakes that are sprinkled over this knit scarf, and the appearance of frost on the over-sized glasses. This FREE group gift at Izzie’s is truly every bit as cute as it looks. The set also includes a color change hud so you can choose between 7 colors to match almost any outfit. The glasses and the scarf have their ownwinter individual huds, so the colors can be changed individually. Additionally the set is unisex. The scarf has male and female sizes, and the glasses are able to be resized manually. As I mentioned, there is a one time join fee for the Izzie’s group, the fee is 250 lindens, however with gifts like this I think the fee is worth it!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Cynful Cereal Killer

Cereal KillerHello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for stopping by! Before I get started with today’s post, I wanted to say sorry for the mix-up in my last post, it was an honest mistake when I misquoted the group join fee. Thank you to those who politely mentioned it to me. That said, I have more group gifts to share, and both groups are FREE to join. I even double checked to make sure! First up is a group gift from Anxiety.

Anxiety Group Gift Choker 

The most recent group gift available at a little shop called Anxiety is this choker/collar that reads “Cereal Killer”. This instantly made me giggle because it’s my favorite play on words. The collar is simple yet fun, and can be manually resized. There are no scripts. To get this gift, join the FREE to join Anxiety group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. Also, please be aware that the join fee is only FREE for a limited time.

Cynful Clothing & Co. Group Gift Maxi Dress

Next up, this gorgeous maxi dress is the December group gift at Cynful Clothing & Co. I wouldn’t normally describe a maxi style dress as sexy, but this one is a head-turner! The Cynful Clothing & Co. group is FREE to join, just wear your group tag and click the group gift vendor to get this lovely gift. The dress comes in a strapless version as well as the spaghetti strap version pictured. Additionally there are specific sizes to fit Belleza bodies, Maitreya Lara, and both Slink bodies. To sweeten the gift even more, there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the dress, the chevron stripes and glitter, the back straps, front straps, and the rings that connect the straps. There are 3 color options for the dress, and 4 variations of each color. You won’t want to miss out on this dress!

Infected Zombie Hunter

Infected Zombie HunterI found my Halloween costume, and just in time too! It seems like zombies and zombie hunters are everywhere this year, and for good reason. Like the vampires of years past, zombies have taken over television and movies in a big way. That said, when I saw this wicked bloody tank top from COCO, my mind instantly went to zombie land. Thankfully, Second Life is awash with creativity, and I was able to find most of what I needed to put this look together without letting go of too many lindens.

I mentioned the tank top as the centerpiece that inspired this “Infected Zombie Hunter” look. It’s one of several FREE group gifts available at COCO. Before I go into detail about the top, when going to the COCO store to add this to your wardrobe, be mindful of which section you’re shopping in. The COCO store is huge, and there are sections dedicated to their doll avatars as well as regular avatars. You’ll find a version of this top in both sections, so don’t get fooled like I did. Make sure you’re in the section with ladies clothing and not doll clothes. LOL That little bit of information out of the way, once you’re in the right place you’ll find a full wall of group gifts with a group joiner near by. The COCO group is FREE to join. Once you’re wearing your COCO group tag, all the gifts are FREE as well, just click the vendors. This bloody tank top gift is fully mesh, and comes in several body fit sizes, and standard mesh sizes.Infected Zombie Hunter CloseAnyone who knows me knows it would be completely out of character for me to go all gore and no glam, even on Halloween. I needed to be a little bloody but still wanted to keep it pretty, Izzie’s had just the thing. These bloody eyes and lips are from an applier package I found by Izzie’s for FREE on the Marketplace. The listing says it’s a limited time Halloween gift, so I’d imagine after today (Oct. 31st) the price will go up. These delicate blood drips can be applied either to the eyes, the lips, or both in 3 shades of red. This FREE set includes appliers for as well as classic system layers. I’m really thrilled with the end result, so don’t miss out on this fun bit of gore by Izzie’s while you can still get it at this fantastic freebie.

Speaking of the Marketplace, I also stumbled across this set of bloody eyes by Inkheart. These mesh eyes were just too perfect to pass up, especially since they are just 1 linden. These “vampire” eyes come in 3 mesh sizes, along with matching system layers. I think they would be spook-tacular with any ghoulish costume!

Continuing on with the idea of being glamorous at all times, this manicure from ZOZ was the perfect finishing touch. Who says a Zombie Hunter can’t have perfectly polished claws?! This particular shade of glossy red is part of the Fab Free exclusive group gift at ZOZ. Just wear your Fab Free tag and click the vendor on the circulation desk at the ZOZ main store, and you’ll be sent your FREE gift. The set has also been featured in one of Katherine’s beautiful posts, and of course in the Fab Free Group Gift Listing by Love.  The Fab Free Group Gift List shows the full set of fall colors that are included in this gorgeous nail polish gift.

Happy Halloween Fab Free!! Here are the details.

Journeys Beyond Stars

Journey Hello There Fab Free’rs! For many of us this weekend marks the last weekend before we get back into that weekly school grind. With that in mind, it’s the perfect time to seize the moment and enjoy some fantastic music, shopping, and exploring at the second incarnation of the Liberta Music Festival, L2 Journeys! Along with the FREE music, and fun, there is of course FREE event swag to be had. Also some of the vendors have set out FREE gifts. The fest has been going for a few days now, but there’s plenty happening this weekend! Don’t miss out, the L2 Journeys Festival ends on the 21st.

In the above polaroid photo, Pru’s proudly sporting her FREE L2 Journeys tshirt and a fun little camera mouthie/nom. These are just two of the FREE gifts you’ll find in a special booth near the main stage. I really like the idea of having an event shirt in Second Life. I’d buy a tshirt at a festival in real life, why not here too?! Even better than real life, this mesh shirt is FREE. The shirt comes in standard mesh sizes and a fitmesh size. Secondly, this little camera nom was too cute to not share. As a blogger/photographer I of course was excited to see it. It’s also FREE along with an equally cute binocular nom. This is just some of the FREE event swag you’ll find at L2 Journeys.
Mello JourneySpeaking of FREE, how cute is this tousled hairstyle from Mello?!! This cute casual look is great for everyday, and I like that it has an almost wind-blown look to it. You’ll find this FREE hairstyle at the Mello main-store next to the group gifts. There’s no need to join the group, just purchase the style from the vendor for zero lindens. The gift includes a rigged and non-rigged mesh hair, and all the color huds, so if you’re not into this coral shade I chose, not to worry, there are plenty of colors to pick from.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
