Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/04/2017 – Monomania

Monomania Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, Friday may be coming to an end but the weekend is just beginning. With that in mind I highly suggest you take a moment this weekend to visit Monomania. They just so happen the subject of this weeks Designer Friday post! Why should you visit? Well first of all, the shop is very prettily decorated and landscaped, there’s even a lush courtyard type oasis you can enjoy. I always admire when there is great scenery to go along with great shopping! However, a big reason would be the huge number of group gifts and freebies you’ll find.

MonoMania Gifts
As you enter the store the wall of vendors you’ll see are the currently available Monomania group gifts. Seriously ladies, that’s half way to a new wardrobe! haha There are also a few group only Lucky Letter boards, and a group only Midnight Madness board. The Monomania group does have a one time join fee of 50 lindens, however as you can see it is 50 lindens well spent! The style of ladies mesh and applier clothing at Monomania has a wide range, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
Monomania Other Groups & Camping
A bit farther to the right of the Lucky Letter boards at Monomania you’ll find a large group of affiliate groups and their associated gifts. It’s in this spot where the FREE and exclusive Fab Free group gift by Monomania is available to all Fabulously Free in SL group members.

The Cross I Bare

Lilac
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I’m just going to come right out and say that Stix has just provided me with my new favorite fantasy toned skin. No contest. I love the lavender shade, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that this gorgeous purple hued skin is a FREE group gift at Stix. Needless to say once I was wearing the skin I was instantly inspired to create this cool demoness look.

Yuki as Syx

This fabulously generous group gift at Stix includes classic system layers with options for cleavage/nipples, nether regions,  and brows. Additionally there is a full set of appliers. While the body and head appliers are Omega based, they are specifically done to fit each of the different body types (Slink Pysique, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya, Belleza) rather than using one texture for all. The Stix group is FREE to join at this time. So if you aren’t already a PixyStix group member, no need to worry you can still get this amazing gift for FREE since there is not a group join fee all you need is group space!

Appliers Included: All in One Hud – Omega Appliers (Head & Body), Mesh Ear Appliers (Bentbox, Logo, Soul Uni), Heavy Cleavage Applier

Hunting at the Goth Garage Sale

I had some help creating this cool look thanks to some hunt items I picked up at the Goth Garage Sale. The Goth Garage Sale Hunt items are just 5 lindens each, and you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. Most of them are fairly easy to find. The little yellow-eyed cats are hidden/perched around the Goth Garage Sale venue, some are even hidden in the shops. The Goth Garage Sale event and Hunt end August 8th.

This Hair is Sn@tched

This sleek long hairstyle and horns set are the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Sn@tch. I was pleasantly surprised to see a hairstyle from Sn@tch. The 5 linden hunt prize includes the hairstyle Drucilla with a “Goths” color hud that has 16 goth inspired hair-color options. You’ll also get the horns which can be worn separately. Horns are set up with resize scripts.

The Cross I Bare

The heavy cross Pru is wearing is another Goth Garage Sale Hunt item, this one from Psycho Barbie. The necklace fits well, is sizable, and includes a color change hud. The color hud lets you pick between black, gold, light gold, and silver. You can hunt down your 5 linden copy of the Psycho Barbie Croix necklace at the Goth Garage Sale.
Lilac 4
I went ahead and added a second photo, not just because I had so much fun with this look, I wanted to give a closer look at the third Goth Garage Sale Hunt item I used for this look. Also, it gives you a great close-up of the Yuki as Syx group gift skin from Stix, and the beautiful texture of the horns included in the Sn@tch Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. Plus, I love the way she looks with this mad face!

Black Pearls

This detailed facial piercing set is the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Black Pearls, and probably my personal favorite of the hunt items I collected. Like all the hunt prizes, this one from Black Pearls is just 5 lindens. First I want to point out that the blades along the forehead are color change, just click one and you’ll get a drop down menu with tons of color options. With just a minor adjustment to the position, the set fit my mesh head perfectly.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Spring Green

Spring Green Final

Spring green sounds so cliche but I don’t care, over the years green has become one of my favorite colors, and it does remind me of spring! This cute top by Vivi feels especially spring-like with the faint floral pattern and the lovely shade of pale green. The top comes in yellow as well, and the set is a current FREE gift available at Fab Free Headquarters! These tops also have the added detail of some little buttons at the lower back, which I think is sweet and a little sexy. The tops can be worn on system layers, and include Omega Appliers, WowMeh, Lena, Lolas, and Slink appliers.

Spring is in the air at Nail Me! also, the April group gift is out. This FREE mani/pedi set (for Slink hands/nails) includes several pretty pastel options with a delicate dotted pattern. There is also an Omega applier included in the gift. My photo does not do the polish justice, so I included a copy of the vendor photo below. The Nail Me! group is currently FREE to join, so don’t miss out on these. There are also several past group gifts still available, now’s your chance to get them all!

Ombre my hombre!

may1_001

“Drea, aren’t you colorful” was pretty much what I heard when I slid into this colorful orange, pink, and yellow She Did That Ombre fit from Lush by Coco, and ladies there is not a thing wrong with being colorful. We’re in May, and summer is just around the corner! So it’s time to shine just as bright as the sun, and let the colors splash onto the scene. All of your are fashionistas, and deserve to break necks the minute you walk into a room. This outfit right here makes a bold statement, from the mix of its colors down to the cuffs, while enhancing your curves!

may1_003

To top off the look, I snagged this beautiful Joi Remy Essentials hair style from Iconic, which is available as a group gift. I love the wild curls and if you touch the headband, you can change the designs. If you’re a curly hair diva, or wanting to try a new look, make your way on over to Iconic now! The attention to detail, hair highlights, and movement is amazing. The group is 300L to join, but its well worth the investment for the quality and styling of hair that is available at this store!

The Tres Beau Belled Set is a swag bag item from The Event,Hollywood…hopefully you had a chance to visit that sim during the event. Also, unfortunately the shoes I am wearing are from a store that is no longer opened. I have hunted marketplace and the grid looking, and I’ve had no such luck. 😦

Putting the Fine in Finesmith

Finesmithblog

If for whatever reason you missed, Love’s FabFree Designer of The Day post on April 26th regarding Finesmith, then I am here to remind you to visit the store. This fierce take no prisoners pink and spiked jewelry set is everything with the earrings, necklace, and bracelet!  Now I don’t mind piecing together different jewelry pieces, but I love it when I can just slip on an entire set and know it will seamlessly go together! I actually first went to the store to retrieve the April gift, pictured below, and a few days later they had the May gift was out! Actually to be quiet honest, they have a series of group gifts available, just ready for the taking! Even better, the group is free to join! I know its a battle to manage which 42 groups to keep on your list, but I can tell you, that Finesmith has stayed on my group list for a very long time. The quality and detail of their jewelry is amazing, and the fact that a little piece of their creativity is released each month is just purely wonderful.

blog april19_002

The April gift comes with the earrings, necklace, and collar as separate pieces. What I like about that is, if I don’t want such an extravagant look, I can choose not to wear the collar piece while just sporting the other two items.

Looking Good In PaperBag

Paperbag Gift
Oh hey! I was just standing here trying to take a picture of myself with my new phone.

Any who, This is a quickie!  I found this really cute color block leggings and top at PaperBag. I love the different colors, because it compliments the wonderful allergy filled spring time. The base color is a nude tone with pink, yellow, and aqua accents.  So after getting dressed and accessorizing, I wanted to be sure I shared the look with all of you!

Show Me the Shoes

Have you ever started getting dress, and got to the point where you had the grand task of trying to find the perfect shoes? This is my dilemma on the daily. I stand on my pose stand, plucking through the items of my inventory, trying to find the right pair of shoes for a particular outfit. I attach, I detach… I attach, I detach, the endless cycle that usually ends with me wearing one of my “go-to” shoes. You know the pair, they usually go with everything, and it makes life easier to just suck it up and put them on… especially when you have impatient family members telling you to hurry up and finished getting dressed. Well the other day, I said, enough was enough, I needed to find more shoes! Because we all know, a lady can never have too many shoes. RIGHT?!
VG Moto boots
So my first stop on my hunt for shoes, was a trip to VG shoes. The last time I went there, I was not disappointed. So on my return trip, I was all to thrilled to see some new goodies.

VG Moto Boot 2
Item one is their VG Moto Unisex Olive boot, which does come with resize scripts for adjusting the size. When I first put them on, they were a little too big, so I went ahead and made them smaller. My favorite part about these shoes, are the studs! It is an excellent decorative touch!

VG Dolce
The second item up for grabs are these VG Dolce Nude shoes! I get excited just thinking about them! I love it when designers allow for texture changes through a hud. This means, you can remix the look of the shoe to match the outfit you are wearing. The overall shoe remains nude, but where you see the red, that can be changed to a few other patterns through the shoe hud. You can also change the spike and studs from silver to gold!
VG Dulce Shoes

Now the shoes aren’t free, you have to join the free VG shoes group in order to purchase each pair of shoes for $15L. All together this was $30L’s well spent!

Just Design Deviant Shoes 2
My last shoe find was from Just Designs, they currently have this beauty out as a group gift. The group is free to join, and these JD Deviant shoes are free for the taking. The detail, the fierceness, the whole design of the shoe just demands a closer look! I do have to give some credit to my mom, she’s the one that told me about this find! Hi^5!

Dangerously Lethal

lethal couture2_002

*SURL LINK UPDATED!!!*

When I think about the word lethal, I think edgy, risky, exciting, and ready to go against the grain to stand out. Ladies, I think you are all lethal enough to pull off these group gifts from Lethal. The other day I was at the store with my mother, and while she was buying up the place, I came across their section of group gifts. The outfit above is a mixture of two group gifts, called LC Chain Legging & Suspender and LC Distress Booties . The outfit itself leaves little to the imagination, but you can choose to add a crop top. We all know some people aren’t prepared for all your sexiness. The shoes are an older group gift that is still available. I talked about these booties last year around Halloween, and mentioned how much I loved them. I still love these shoes and wear them from time to time in post, because they just about go with everything.

Lethal Couture_001

The other gift they have available are these gold leggings, which I paired with their not free over-sized denim jacket. I must say, I love gold… seriously.. gold is my favorite metal/color. Therefore, I will wear these legging until they bust at the seams!

So make your way over to Lethal, the group is free to join, and these gifts are waiting for you!

Indulging in JAVA & VG Shoes

VG Shoes

Look at me in my pinup style pose in the club like I own the place! Well let me hurry up and tell you how I got the look before the real owner finds me here. The shoes I am wearing is a group gift from VG shoes store called, Play. They have a gorgeous creamy gold color that almost compliments any other color outfit you might wear. In fact, when I was preparing for this post, I put the shoes on first and  then went through my inventory trying on different outfits until I found a complimenting match.

VG Shoes

Then an idea hit me like a bag of shoes, JAVA Fashion Designs  has a Paisley Girl Joan Mini Dress that would go perfect! So I went scrambling into my inventory, and slipped it on, confirming that the two items went together like peanut butter and jelly. Oh, and let me tell you something about JAVA. If you join the group, which is $75L fee, the designer Simone Udimo sends out at least 2-3 outfits a week. The store has a variety of non-mesh and mesh outfits at very very, did I say very, reasonable prices. The dress I have on was sent out in a group notice, and just in case its not in the notice anymore, you can find it in store for $25L.

I also want to give a thank you to Purple Moon for sending out these beautiful diamond Diva Earrings in honor of Women’s Day. Definitely added the cherry on top of the sundae for this outfit.
