Fab Free Designer of the Week – Ali & Ali Designs

Ali & Ali Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry I’ve been so absent as of late. I’m gearing up for a move in RL and it is taking not only my focus but most of my energy. I cannot wait to be settled and back into a normal routine. I hate being away, I miss you guys! That said I did manage a little bit of time to share with you the designer of the week, Ali & Ali Designs.

As most of you probably know, Ali & Ali is a hair shop that has been part of the Second Life experience for quite a while. What you might not know is that Ali & Ali also has a small selection of clothing, shoes, and even business scripts! There’s really a lot to see and shop for at Ali & Ali. At the main entrance you’ll notice there’s even a convenient teleport board with quite a few store “departments” that you can teleport to for convenient shopping. Still, the main Attraction at Ali & Ali is the hair. There are male styles as well as the female styles, there are also beards. Ali & Ali also caters nicely to the Classic Avatars in that they still offer non-mesh styles along with mesh, and they have a set of free tattoo layer hair bases available on the information desk just inside the entrance.

Ali & Ali Front Desk
The Ali & Ali information desk is really the hub of the store. Here you’ll find all the information you need about anything and everything Ali & Ali related. There are also helpful fairies around the store that you can click for help and additional information. Also at the desk are the current free Ali & Ali group gifts. There is one for the gentlemen as well as the ladies. The Ali & Ali group is free to join at this time. I added a close up of the teleport board so you can get a better look at all Ali & Ali has to offer.Ali & Ali Lucky Gifts

Speaking of offers, just to the left of the desk you’ll find the exclusive Ali & Ali male and female gifts for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Finally, as you shop through the multiple floors of the Ali & Ali store, you’ll see the occasional lucky letter chair and a few mini mania type boards. I put up some examples of what to look for, however the boards and chair shown are not the only ones. Don’t forget, there are male prizes as well as female ones. Also I noticed that at least a few of the boards did not seem to require a group to participate. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Hey Fab Free’rs! It’s time to get out your Doc Martins and your brown lipstick, ’90s fashion and accessories are making a comeback! I am once again going to show my age with this post, but I’ve learned to not care about age so much.

Right now you can get the cutest little heart choker for free at Boutique #187. This is a rare “no group required” freebie from Boutique #187, so you won’t want to miss it. It has resize scripts and comes in black, gold, and silver. I remember wearing these stretchy black plastic chokers in my teens in the ’90s so of course I had to have this one.

What better way to show off your choker than with cute braided space buns?! This hairstyle is a recent group gift at Pink Hustler. It comes with 3 color pack huds, and has resize scripts. The Pink Hustler group has a sizable join fee of 500 linden. This fee will grant you not only the current group gift, but an entire wall of previous group gifts, and of course future gifts.

Happy Shopping Fab Free, here are the details!

Just Call Me Wednesday

Beach Goth
Hello Fab Free’rs! I am always happy you’re here. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I call this look “when you’re goth af but you love the beach.” It’s true, I do love the beach and I certainly have my goth girl moments. There isn’t anything about this look, parasol and all, that I don’t love. I feel like a grown-up Wednesday Addams on summer holiday. The parasol, this killer swimsuit, and the gorgeous heels are all fabulous free or otherwise inexpensive finds. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the where and how of getting each one.

The Parasol – I found this adorably goth parasol by Kaos on the Marketplace for just 20 linden. It is just as you see though it is difficult to see the slightly speckled texture in this photo. The hold pose is built in, and it has resize scripts. I was even able to use the parasol with another pose and the parasol’s hold pose still worked. You can get your copy of this darkly cute parasol from the Kaos store on the Marketplace. Other colors are available also.

The Bikini – When I saw the ad for this bikini from Kenodoxy, I had one of those “I need that” kind of reactions. It is every bit as cute on as it was in the vendor photo. The swimsuit is a free group gift at Kenodoxy. It comes in several mesh sizes. The Kenodoxy group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on this awesome gift.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Shoes – Those shoes though! I love everything about these free group gift shoes from VO.Z. The straps that wide around your calves are made to look like rose stems or vines. I think it makes them all the prettier. These shoes have a color change hud that lets you change the color of the heel, straps, the leaves, and the rose separately. To get your pair, head over to VO.Z and join the free-to-join VO.Z group.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Ari's Bazaar
Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! Thank’s for being here. This week Ari’s Bazaar is the featured Fab Free Designer of the week. The fashion style of the clothing at Ari’s Bazaar is super feminine. You’ll find pretty casual wear and beautiful formal gowns. There are also some nice nail appliers to go with all the new dresses you’ll be tempted to buy! The Ari’s Bazaar shop is small, which I like because it’s very easy to see everything and nothing is hard to find. There’s even a small section of more seasonal clothing such as swimwear upstairs. To get to the second floor, find the “Teleport” sign near the desk and then look for the teleport disc on the floor. All the gifts and group offers however are conveniently on the first floor in the main room.

Ari's Bazaar Gifts
The Ari’s Bazaar group gift is just inside the entrance on the wall by the door. This cute gift is FREE to Ari’s Bazaar group members, and the group is FREE to join. You’ll notice right away there are a few gifts for store associated groups such as Fabulously Free in SL on the wall to the right. You’ll need to wear the right group tag for each of these gifts. The Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. You won’t want to miss the cute purple dress that is an exclusive for Fab Free group members. On the same wall there are 2 Ari’s Bazaar group lucky letter boards and a Daily Prize board. Just don’t forget your Ari’s Bazaar group tag to participate! Happy shopping Fab Free!

Hey hi hello Fab Free’rs! It’s true what the sign says “Life happens, coffee helps.” At least that has been my experience. If you’re a coffee drinker like myself, there’s a lot to love about this cute decorative rug group gift from Zen Creations. I’m also really enjoying this top. It’s one of three recent group gifts at Hilly Haalan. Keep reading for all the info about these fabulous freebies!

The Rug – This fur rug is a FREE group gift from Zen Creations. The coffee and the pen have poses attached to them. The rug will give you a pen prop or a coffee mug to hold depending on which pose you choose. I just used my own pose to take this photo. The Zen Creations group is FREE to join.

The TopHilly Haalan has 3 FREE group gifts out, and this fun warm weather top is one of them. The top comes in several mesh sizes and has a color/texture change hud with tons of options. This particular option just seemed to suit my mood at the moment! There are graphic print options as well as solid colors. The Hilly Haalan group is FREE to join, so do not miss this! Also, there is an alpha layer included so this top is suitable for classic avatars.

Vintage Spring

Vintage
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. I wanted to take a minute to share with you one more of the 10 linden gifts at the Up Event along with the Spring 2018 group gift from Vintage Touch. Both are nice, inexpensive items that if they are your style it would be a shame to miss out on.

The Outfit – Cynderella has this cute halter top and shorts set out at the Up Event for just 10 linden. The belted shorts and top are included in the same box. There are several inexpensive gifts at the Cynderella booth at Up. My apologies for not showing a better view of the cute dark denim shorts. Both the top and shorts come in several mesh sizes. There is no group required, just pay the gift box 10 linden and get your outfit. Also, there is an alpha layer included for the shorts.
Mesh Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Standard Mesh (xs -XL), Slink, Maitreya Lara

The Lounger – I think the rose floral print of this lounge chair from Vintage Touch is beautiful. This chair is the Spring 2018 group gift at Vintage Touch. It has several single poses for male and female avatars. To get  your copy head over to Vintage Touch and join the group. There is a one time join fee of 5 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag and the chair will be sent to you.

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 04/01/2018 -Z.O.E.

Z.O.E. Landing Point
Hello hello Fab Free! Thanks for being here. This week’s designer of the week is none other than Z.O.E. I have to tell you that  Z.O.E. is one of those shops that it is genuinely a pleasure to browse through. It is a shop that has a little bit of everything nestled neatly in the setting of a residential home. Shopping at Z.O.E. feels like you’re browsing through a quaint downtown shop in a small town. Much of what Z.O.E. has to offer is furniture and decor. You’ll also find commercial and residential builds, and even a small amount of men’s and women’s clothing.

Pictured above is the information area at the Z.O.E. landing point. Here you can access the shop Flickr, blog, and Facebook page. There’s also a convenient teleporter that will take you to building demos, and the clothing area on the second floor. Right next to this spot you can also purchase store gift cards.
Z.O.E. Gifts and Offers
The weekly sales at Z.O.E. are clearly marked, and not far from the landing point. There is also a group gift area. There you can join the Z.O.E. VIP group. This group is FREE to join. Z.O.E. VIP group members get discounts on new releases, discounts on regular purchases, store credit on purchases made while wearing the group tag, and group gifts. In this area is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Z.O.E. It’s a super cute two-sided frame. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Also, don’t pass by the cute heart patterned pillow. It’s not only a cute decorative pillow, it’s a FREEbie!

Long Day

Long Day
Hey There Fab Free’rs. Welcome back to the blog. I’m always happy you’re here. Yesterday one of those days where you daydream about that moment when you can come home and soak in a nice warm bath. While waiting for the tub to fill and the bath bomb to work it’s magic, I did a little Fab Free style shopping. Here’s what I found: adorable group gift shorts from Moon Amore, and a pretty white ink tattoo by Abyel.

The Shorts – Perfect for lounging around the house, or even a quick errand, these shorts are a must have. They are a recent group gift at Moon Amore and they include a fat pack texture change hud. When I say fatpack, I mean fatpack. There are 36 different texture options for these too cute shorts. They are fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies only however. The Moon Amore group has a one time join fee of just 50 linden. I think these shorts alone are worth that! You can find this gift at the store or in the recent group notices.

The Tattoo –  There is an event called “Up” and there are quite a few 10 linden gifts at the current round. I picked up several, one of which is this tattoo by Abyel. The tattoo is a full upper body tattoo with pretty imagery front and back. I like the addition of little blue/purple flowers and butterflies.  This beautiful 10 linden gift tattoo at Up comes in appliers only.

Appliers Included: Maitreya, Omega, Slink

Here are the details, enjoy!

Juiciest Peach

Juiciest Peach
Hello Fab Free’rs! I think the above quote from Dita Von Teese is a wise thing to rmember. She’s a personal Icon of mine whom I admire deeply. So forget the haters, be yourself, and by all means go shopping! I thought it was a fitting quote to share considering the cute little peach top from Crazy.Sexy that Pru has on. The top and the cute half up hairstyle from No Match are both current group gifts.

No Bunny – Cheekily named “No Bunny” this long unisex hairstyle is a new group gift at No Match. The style comes in a full fat-pack, with hair bases in appliers and system layers. There is also a male version of the style included. The No Match group has a one time join fee of 50 linden.

Peachy – This cute tube top is a current FREE group gift at Crazy.Sexy. The top comes in several mesh sizes. To get your copy you’ll need to join the “CS Tattoo & Furniture” group which is FREE to join.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)
