Fab Free Designer Friday – 02/16/2018 – #bye

#bye Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! So this Friday we are bringing in the weekend with #bye. Also to be read as “Best You Ever“, #bye is a ladies clothing store (though I did see one or two male items) with a range of sexy clothing styles, shoes, and lingerie. The shop is self described as specializing in “lifestyle apparel”, which to me translates into BDSM or D/s lifestyle clothing. Much of the fashion is quite cute and sexy.  #bye also has items suitable for mesh and classic avatars. As you make your way around the store you’ll notice that #bye has a wall (opposite side of the wall at the entrance) with the usual information such as a link to the Flickr feed and Facebook page.

#bye Gifts

This same wall is also where you’ll find a fun Mini Mania board that is FREE for everyone to participate in. Additionally this is the spot where the most current group gifts appear to be located. There is a shelf in an adjoining room that has little gift boxes that are previous but still available group gifts. The #bye group is FREE to join. In addition to the #bye group gift, there are a few other group gifts available on this wall. One of which is of course the Fabulously Free in SL exclusive group gift. Remember to wear your Fab Free group tag to pick this one up!

Take Time to Stop and Smell the Roses

A Single Rose

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  It’s a three day weekend where I am in RL, and I sure am looking forward to it.  I have a lot of little projects that I’ve been putting off around the house, but I’m also eager to share some more Fabulous Finds with you all.  Ripley and I will head out to wander the grid, and search for some budget friendly fashions to blog.

Happiness is Receiving a Love Letter

Although I spent the recent holiday cuddled up with my favorite canine pal, I still had a love letter delivered right to my inbox……the Addison Love Letter Dress from Ecce Bellus, that is.  With beautifully handwritten text adorning the bodice, a slender belt to accentuate your waistline, and a solid skirt that falls to mid thigh, this bright and cheery frock is sure to look adorable on your avatar.  The free gift box for members of Fabulously Free in SL includes the red option I am wearing in my picture as well as one with a white top.  Both come in mesh for classic avatars and versions for mesh bodies, so this is a versatile outfit.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

 

I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Skin Me

LAQ Valentine
Good morning FabFree Readers! Just a quick little shot from me today to share news about a beautiful new group gift from LAQ!

Give Me Some Skin!

Back in December, I posted that I had picked up the LAQ Neve Bento Motion Capture Head while it was on promo and I do on occasion wear it inworld and am glad I made the purchase because after some shape tweaking I was able to make her “feel like me”.  Yesterday for Valentine’s Day, LAQ announced that they had placed out a new free group gift for it’s inworld VIPS (FREE TO JOIN!), and that gift is the Valentine Skin head appliers, specifically for LAQ Bento Motion Capture Heads.

LAQ Valentine Skin Details:

This skin is lightly freckled with rosy cheeks and glossed lips making it a fantastic, wear every day base skin that would even be suitable for makeup layering!  The HUD included allows for several different skin tones as well as a browless option so that you can add your own.  Matching body appliers are not included with this gift, however they are currently on sale at very low prices (between 15-25L for ALL the skin tones) for several different body styles.

This gift is a limited time offer, available in store until February 18th.

ps.  I don’t have Scarlet, but I bet this skin looks great on her too!

Not Your Babe

Not Your BabeThe word Babe…  Offensive or Not?

What is it about the word “babe” that offends so many?  I don’t think it’s the actual word, because I can think of instances that “babe” was actually said in endearing ways and gave me those mushy gushy feelings.  I think it’s rather the situation of someone being too familiar than they should that is offensive.  They could have used any old pet name word and gotten the same reaction, but it just happened to be babe that came out.  Using the word babe in regards to someone is definitely a risky choice!  I guess the moral of the story is here to be absolutely certain he or she really is your babe before you say it lol.  Anyways…  just a little something that roamed my wandering mind when I came across this T-Shirt as a free group gift yesterday.

Did You Say Free Group Gift?

Yes, I did say free group gift!  Members of the Miss Chelsea inworld group can head down to the reception desk and pick up the new group gift which just happens to be the Judi Top with “Not Your Babe” across the front of it. It comes in several mesh body fits as listed below and includes a texture change HUD that allowed for four different colours.  The vendor ad shows two – so I’m including that here too.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

The Miss Chelsea group is 100L to join, but on the desk you’ll find several past group gifts still available, many of which shown here on FabFree!

Shop Your Heart Out & Get FREE GIFTS!

SYHO1
Hello Fabulouses and happy Saturday! As I mentioned yesterday, I made it into Second Life’s Annual Valentine’s Day Shopping Event called Shop Your Heart Out, which is offering a wide variety of creations with huge discounts and free gifts from every vendor!  As it just opened up on February 8th, it is still pretty difficult to teleport into, but persistence pays off!  This event runs until February 26th, so no need to panic as there is plenty of time to get in.   I am sure it will be at least a little quieter in a few days.

What I’m Showing You Today

I am still unboxing gifts (and purchases lol) as there was a massive amount, and there will be more shown on FabFree but I am featuring two of the gifts in my photos today.  One by Thalia Heckroth and the other by Alaskametro.  All gifts are either priced at 0L to buy or delivery upon touch.  If one doesn’t work – try the other, but no group is required to pick them up.

Thalia Heckroth offers their breathtaking Helena Gown in a divine Valentine’s Day Edition which is a soft shade of sweetheart pink.  This Maitreya specific dress drapes beautifully down to the floor and has a little bit of capping to the sleeves.

SYHO2

At the Alaskametro display, you can pick up the Confetti Heart Cheek Glitter and Heart Nail Polish in three colour sets as a free gift for visiting!

  • Cheek Glitter: Omega and system avatar compatible
  • Heart Nail Polish:  Slink, Maitreya and Omega compatible – three colour sets!

Happy Valentine’s Day To ME!

blackgoldvday
Good morning Fabulouses!  Valentine’s Day is just a few days away and time is running out to find the perfect outfit for date night.  While I was madly trying to teleport into the Shop Your Heart Out Event last night I came across a couple of Valentines Day gifts on my flickr feed by two different designers that seem as if they were made for each other.

I finally did make it into the event late in the evening, and picked up a ton of gifts to show you soon, however I also stopped inworld and picked up the couple of gifts I found while I was waiting and I’m super excited to show you these today.

It was love at first sight!

Nerido was my first stop, where I picked up the Agata Dress in the perfectly timed heart print texture – which is a new Valentine’s Day group gift for Nerido group members.  This dress is Maitreya specific and comes with a pair of panties for modesty.  The sheer black beaded bodice is part of this sexy little number and it comes in both black and red.  I have included their vendor ad below so you can see the beautiful red colour too!  This group is 199L to join, but I’d have easily paid that for this dress.  There is another group gift available to obtain, and now I’m in the group for future offers and gifts too!

Show Stopper Boots

If there was ever a pair of show stopper boots – these are it.  They are A M A Z I N G!  You won’t even believe when I tell you that they are absolutely FREE and it won’t even take up a group space!  The over the knee Demet Vday Boots are available as a free gift for subscribing at ChicChica!  These gold sparkled black suede beauties are also Maitreya fitted, however with the right alpha hud, they may work with other bodies too.  To obtain these boots, simply join the subscribomatic and then click it again to select history and then #1 to have them delivered.

Dreaming of Blossoms in Spring

Who Says

Hello Fabulous Readers and Happy Thursday!  I am popping in quickly to share another free gift that you can pick up just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The hue of the Noa Dress from Tiar reminded me of pale pink blossoms in spring, so I couldn’t resist stopping to snap a photo in front of a garden bench.  With a generous cut, an asymmetrical hemline, and pretty openings in the sleeves, this frock is all about softly flattering your figure.  I really like the sheer overlay in the skirt section, which is just so pretty.   This outfit comes with a texture change HUD that allows you to select from black, white, or the pink I am wearing in my picture.  The free package includes fits for mesh bodies only.  To pick up a copy for yourself, head on over to the Tiar store (it’s located on an adult sim), take the “Free Stuff” teleport option on the wall, and tap the vendor after you arrive.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Physique
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Venus

Ripley and I will be pretty much off the grid for the next few days, but I look forward to locating more Fabulous Finds to share with you soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Drift Away

Just Dandy

Hello Fabulous Readers!   Winter seems to last so long, and today I found myself needing a little get away.  It can be so refreshing to just relax and let the peace of nature fill you.  The pupster and I escaped this evening to the flower-filled meadow on the lovely Costa Bella sim.   I put on my headset, turned on sounds, and relaxed in the tranquil landscape.  As I listened to the gentle trickle of falling water, the cares of a stressful day faded away.

Now I’m Feeling Just Dandy

With my knotted crop top and pleated mini, I know I looked just as good as I felt in the free gift I picked up from the YM Shop.  The Dandy Outfit includes a playful plaid tie in addition to the shirt and skirt, which is worn as an all-in-one piece.  Talk about cute!  With coordinating bows, a slightly ruffled waistline and a narrow black border on the bodice, this outfit is packed with playful touches.  I ended up wearing the black panties that came with my Maitreya Lara body because the skirt was a bit revealing, but I am sure a pair of tights would have provided coverage as well.  The generous designer included a texture change HUD with 8 options in all, so if you’d prefer a different color scheme, you’re in luck!  To scoop up this free giftie for yourself, simply activate your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, and tap the vendor at the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I hope you are able to find a peaceful spot for yourself where you can just let your cares drift away, too.  Sometimes in this busy world, we forget to carve out some downtime for ourselves.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
