FabFree Designer Friday – 02/24/2017 – Ecko

Ecko Storefront
Good Evening Fab Free’rs! Thanks for coming by. This week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday features a shop called Ecko. I was a little surprised that Ecko is such a new shop in Second Life. The clothing at Ecko has a cute casual style that would appeal to almost anyone. Ecko sells mainly women’s mesh and applier clothing. You’ll also find some fun accessories. At the landing point just outside the entrance you’ll be greeted by a few shop pets, and the subscriber kiosk. You’ll want to be sure to join the subscriber to keep up-to-date on all things Ecko, also subscriber members have access to 2 FREE gifts inside the store.
Ecko Info
Just inside the entrance, there’s a kiosk with a weekly special purchase for just 50 lindens. It also appears there are a limited number of this special purchase. Once inside if you browse your way to the right side of the shop you’ll find 2 FREE gifts for subscribers. Since you joined the Ecko subscriber on the way in, just click the vendors and your FREE gifts will be delivered to you. The right side of the shop is also where you’ll find the “wall of information” as I have come to call similar spots in other shops. Here you’ll find all the information about store affiliations and current/upcoming events and hunts. This is also where you’ll find Ecko’s exclusive Fab Free group gift. This cute little dress was previously shown on the Fab Free blog by Kathryn. Make sure to wear your Fab Free group tag to pick up this FREE gift.  There are also a few other group gifts. Take a moment to stop by  Ecko and do a little shopping, perhaps a little hunting, and a little freebie grabbing!

A Rambling Gypsy Soul

Rock Those Polka Dots
Hello wonderful readers!  I have an adorable, middle of the week Fabulous Find to share with you today.  I know it certainly brought a smile to my face when I added this free outfit to my inventory!

Rocking Those Polka Dots

Gypsy Chic’s free gift features a sweet, salmon-colored halter mini dress sprinkled with polka dots, and topped with a denim bolero style jacket.  Loosely fitted, with softly draped folds in the skirt, this frock is sure to flatter any figure.  I love the semi sweetheart style neckline, and the retro appeal of the entire outfit.  PinkMelon is a free gift for members of the TeleportHub.com group.  Although the group has a 10L join fee, there are so many goodies bestowed upon members, it’s a worthwhile investment.  The free package includes mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M and L sizes, as well as the requisite alpha layer.  The dress fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly once I adjusted its built-in alpha layer.  To add this adorable number to your inventory, simply activate the TeleportHub.com group tag, journey on over to The Event and Hunt Office, and give the gift board a tap.

Grateful For the Little Things

When I was out with the pupster on one of our shopping jaunts, we moseyed over to EarthStones, which just so happens to be one of my favorite jewelry stores in Second Life.  I meandered around the store, admiring the many baubles on display.  Meanwhile, Rip sniffed around, then excitedly grabbed my hand, led me over to the teleport board, and nosed the “Bargain Loft” section.  He didn’t have to show me more than once!  We popped upstairs, and in no time, I spotted the perfect accessories, priced well within my budget at only 75L each.  The Grateful Necklace and Bracelet, both in Ramble on Rose, echoed the pink and white tones in my dress, and suited my outfit to a “T.”  If you are in the market for jewelry, I encourage you to check out all the budget-friendly adornments available in the loft at EarthStones.

I hope you found something in today’s post to inspire you to create your own Fabulous Find.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Saturday Night

Snapshot_003
Hello FabFree Readers!  Have you checked out the new round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room? A brand new round as just begun and there are so many wonderful and affordable items to pick up as well as two free group gifts sitting on either side of the main doors.

What’s Free You Say?

One of the two group gifts that you can pick up with your free Cosmopolitan Sales Room group tag is the Efuli Top by Elegance Boutique!  This metallic leather halter top gives just a little peek of hmmm what’s the word for it…  underboob?  bottom breast?  Take your pick lol, but it’s a nice little peek without showing off too much of the girls.  It does however display your entire belly, so don’t go blaming me if you aren’t comfortable with unsuspecting belly raspberries that may come your way.

This seductive little black and red top comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer.  Pair it up with a black skirt or slacks and you’ll be ready to go this Saturday night!

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!

Close Your Eyes and I’ll Kiss You

Lipstick & Lingerie

All My Lovin’ …

Happy Valentine’s Day Fab Free! There are few in my Second Life world that I adore more than my Fab Free family. Fabulously Free in SL has become my home. I wouldn’t want to be without the blog or the people I’ve come to know and cherish through my involvement with Fab Free. So today all my love goes to my Fab Free family and all the wonderful people in Second Life who are such an important part of the Fab Free community.

… I Will Send To You

On a quick side-note, while I find all the blog posts inspiring, Love and Carson have inspired me with their blog posts a lot lately. Carson with all his catchy song lyrics to go with his finds, and Love with all the gorgeous lingerie she’s been finding to share with us. I found myself oogling the pretty things and set out to find a some of my own, meanwhile getting songs stuck in my head. My efforts led me to Kendrasy Creations where I picked up this pink floral bustier. The top comes in the following body-specific sizes: eBody, Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and Slink (Physique, Hourglass). To get this FREE gift, join the FREE-to-join Kendrasy Creations in world group. Then click the gift vendor.

I’ll Pretend That I’m Kissing…

Still humming silly love songs, I continued my search for pretty Valentine-y things to share with you.  That’s when I came across some kisses, what better way to share a little love?! haha Those sweet little lipstick kisses on Pru’s cheeks are another FREE group gift. This fun little applier is a recent group gift at LePunk. The gift lets you apply lipstick kiss marks to your cheeks in red, pink, or black. it works with Catwa heads only, however there are some other gifts also worth checking out at LePunk.

Be My Valentine

Snapshot_002Happy Valentine’s Day to all you SLovers out there!  Whether you are spending it romancing the night away with a sloved one or curling up on the sofa with your favourite furrball, I hope it’s a great day for you.

Tonight’s The Night

If you can convince your honey to dress up all “matchy matchy” with you for the big date night tonight, make sure you check out the past notices of the Loca Como tu Madre group for a very generous free group gift for both men and ladies!  It may take a little convincing, some dragon eyes…  and possibly negotiations, but when a woman puts her mind to something, we all know there is no stopping her!

The Loca Como tu Madre shop is marketplace based, so I can’t teleport you to a store, but you can join the group by copy and pasting the following link into local chat to join and then review the past notices of the group for the gift.  secondlife:///app/group/9ad09367-24c5-391a-90d2-3eabc100c420/about

For Her

  • Be My Valentine Dress
  • Be My Valentine Slink Shoes (not shown as I am wearing my Maitreya feet)

For Him

  • Be My Valentine Suit
  • Be My Valentine Shoes

Be My Valentine

Question Of The Day

The adorable pose that I have pretty much forced upon poor Carson is called Be My Valentine and is available for just 1L in the GlamRUs Marketplace store.  It was a real steal and I think would be great for commemorating this special day with your sweetie in a snapshot or for blogging/photography purposes.

The Final Verdict

Will I be his Valentine?  How could I not after he’s jumped through all of these hoops for me?  I should be so lucky!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE ❤

The Road to My Heart

The road to my heart 1
Hello Fabulouses!  It’s hard to believe Valentine’s Day is only nine days away.  So much has gone on in my real life the past couple of months, it seems like the last time I looked at my calendar, it was the beginning of December, and now it’s almost the second week of February!  Lucky for me, I already have a special Valentine who is always by my side.  The road to this girl’s heart is paved with paw prints, specifically, my pal Ripley’s.

Just in Time for the Holday

With my free jumper from AnaSTyle, I am all set for V-day with plenty of lindens left to splurge on Ripley snacks for my sweetheart.  This darling, satiny red outfit has slender straps, golden hearts, and delicate lace trim.  I really like the gathered fabric at the waistline and how it emphasizes the curve of my figure.   A gift for members of the Second Life Frees and Offers group, this package includes my entire outfit, not just the clothing.  My heart choker, shiny silver earrings, bracelet, hand held heart, and red heels for slink high feet are tucked inside the box as well.  There are so many items included in this one gift!  I love it when I can get a complete outfit in one fell swoop! To pick up this Valentine’s Day ensemble for yourself, just teleport over the AnaSTyle, switch to the SLF&O tag, and click the gift sign.  The group is free to join, and the gift is available to you for no charge as well.

The road to my Heart 2

What’s Included:

  • Romper with lace in XS, S, M, L, XL Fitmesh sizes
  • Alpha layer for romper
  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies
  • Slink high sandals
  • Heart bracelet
  • Heart earrings
  • Heart choker
  • Valentine’s heart to hold

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day filled with love!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

purple dress_012
Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  “Not all those who wander are lost.”  One of my favorite quotes from J.R.R. Tolkien, which lends itself well to today’s post.  The wanderlust bug bit Ripley and I today.  We decided to hit the road in this retro VW bus.  When we reached The Yorkshire Dales sim, we pulled over to camp for the night in our vintage vehicle.  While I lounged in comfort, daydreaming about our adventures to come, Rip cavorted across the grassy meadow, sniffing out bunny trails.

A Passion for Purple

Along our journey, the pup and I had pulled up outside the Petry Model Store, and meandered through the boutique to peruse the inventory.   When I saw the collection of group gifts on the wall, I quickly joined the free Petry Model Store group, and started shopping.  This lovely violet-hued dress was the first free group gift to catch my eye.  As you could probably tell from the hue of my blog post headings, purple is one of my favorite colors.  As soon as I saw this mini, I knew it was my next outfit to blog.  From the front, it appears as though the dress provides solid coverage (which it does in all the right areas), but the side and back views offer a sexy peek of skin.  It features a plunging v-neck, sash at the waist, and a slightly gathered skirt with an asymmetrical hemline.  Before I detail the contents of the gift package, here’s a full, front view picture:

purple dress_011

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza applier for the dress
  • Optional Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega sock applier (not shown in my pictures)

Finishing Touches

To accessorize my look, I slipped on an amethyst pendant from Elemental Earth Designs, which I found on the Marketplace for only 50L.  Its teardrop shaped, sculpted gem is a perfect match for the color of my dress, and the price was right up my alley, too.  The simple styling of the pendant along with its leather cord, provided just the right amount of sparkle while still allowing my dress to shine on center stage.

Time to Rescue the Bunnies

I think it’s time to reign in the pupster, and give the bunnies some well deserved peace and quiet.  After relaxing next to the campfire with a cold beverage for me, and a refreshing bowl of water for the rascally rabbit chaser, we’ll hopefully spot a shooting star to wish on before we call it a night.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Free as a Bird (or Two)

Be Kind. Even on Your Bad Days

Well, hello there Fabulouses!  On this cool, gray day, Ripley and I set out to explore the Whimberly sim, and we met up with some old friends we had first encountered waddling up a ramp into their washtub pond {HERE} over on the Painter’s Link sim.  As you can see, they are all grown up now, and have migrated to a home of their own away from Mama and Papa.

A Thick, Knitted Sweater to Ward off the Chill

Even though it was a brisk cloudy day, I stayed cozy and warm throughout my visit with Cali and Abigail, thanks to my free sweater from Luziefee.  My Tula knitted shirt is the latest gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members from designer Luzie Cheng of Luziefee.  I discovered three versions tucked inside the package – red, blue, and  green.  Since its bands of cool colors reminded me of the beach glass I used to collect as a child, I opted to wear the green sweater for my photo. Each color pack comes in a variety of sizes from XXS to L, so you are sure to find just the right fit for your avatar.  The texture of the chunky knitting is quite realistic looking!  Also included in the present is a Nail HUD so you can apply perfectly matching striped polish to your fingertips if you so desire.  Sadly, I didn’t notice the polish until after I had snapped my photo.  To add Tula to your sweater collection, simply switch over to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, pop on over to Luziefee, and click the gift board.  It’s easy and completely free!

Glitter Glass

Ripley must have known I was in a beach glass state of mind, because he approached me with the Powder Blue Glitter Glass Necklace from Evica dangling from his mouth.  He nudged my leg and offered me his Fabulous Find.  As you may already know, my boy has a nose for bargain-priced fashion finds, and today was no exception.  He had discovered this gorgeous piece of jewelry on the Marketplace for a mere 50L.  After slipping the bauble around my neck, I rewarded the pup with his favorite Ripley snack, and we shared a celebratory high-five.

Complete the Look

The other day, when I logged on, I was happy to see an offline IM that had been left by Fabulous Reader, Rowan Carroll, telling me about a nail art shop I had never been to before called The Odd Eyed Cat.  As soon as I read the words “the entire store of appliers is under 75L,” I teleported so quickly Ripley almost couldn’t track me down!  There is an adorable pink, red and black striped Gillian polish on the wall for only 1L (definitely scooped that one up!) and tons of other color combinations for either Maitreya or Slink nails throughout the store.  When I spotted the Tabitha Nail Applicator in Neutral Blankes, I was entranced by its metallic, gleaming finish.  The blue tone was a lovely match for my sea glass sweater.  I only spent 59L for 12 hues of polish in this one package.  It was a great deal!  Thank you for the tip, Rowan! 🙂

Off to Face the Middle of the Week…

I’m so glad that tomorrow is Wednesday, and the weekend will coast ever closer after that.  This week has already seemed extra-long to me, even though it’s only Tuesday!  I’m looking forward to a couple of days off.  Until my next post, happy shopping, my friends!
