Fab Free Designer of the Day – 09/22/2018 – The Beautiful Ones

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs and welcome back to the blog! I’m glad you’re here, and always happy to be here myself. This week’s edition of Designer of the Week is all about The Beautiful Ones. I know that sounds like you guys, doesn’t it?! Really though, The Beautiful Ones is a ladies clothing brand that has been an established part of Second Life for quite some time now. I would describe their style of clothing as cute, casual, and relate-able. You will find some dressier items, but most of the clothes are the everyday type. Cute outfits and dresses you’d want to wear often.

One of the things that stands out about The Beautiful Ones for me, are their gifts. You can almost always guarantee that a TBO gift will be in their “signature” shade of dark teal blue. Right now there are two The Beautiful Ones store group gifts in the before mentioned shade of teal. The TBO group is currently just 25 linden to join. There are also two Midnight Madness boards, one requires The Beautiful Ones group tag, and the other is open for everyone (no tag needed). Lastly, but never least, there is a table with a hand-full of gifts. I think you’ll notice right away the colorful Fabulously Free in SL group joiner on the wall. You guessed it, these gifts are the gifts by The Beautiful Ones for other store-associated groups like Fab Free. You may even recall this post by Nevi in which she features the current TBO gift for Fab Free group members. Not yet a member of the Fab Free in world group? Have no fear, the Fabulously Free in SL group is always free to join. Happy Shopping Fab Free’rs!

Chasing The Sun

TBOSabina
Good morning Fabulouses!  I hope you all had a relaxing weekend :).  It may be that dreaded day of Monday again and it’s back to the old grind, but I did find a little sunshiny something that may brighten your day a little bit.

A Tropical Treat

At TBO (The Beautiful Ones) on the wall behind their reception desk, you’ll find several group gifts with a one time group join fee of 25L.  Most of their group gifts are in a teal shade of blue, which is great for me, because I really like that colour!   One of the more recent gifts is this tropical Sabina Outfit that includes the printed top and long skirt.  You can even wear these two items as separates if you like.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya & Isis
  • TMP

Lush

Lush

Just too lush…

Ages ago, a friend of mine teleported me to a sim called Elysion. Membership was required to visit, and he paid the fee of 650 Linden and we walked around a bit, but I didn’t get to do much exploring. I never left the group because of the fee, but I hadn’t been back to the sim because of my busy schedule, despite its promise of a lush adult atmosphere. (Don’t worry, I promise this is a PG-13 post 😉 )

Fantasy cream?

I had just finished up a few stops along the trail of the Fantasy Cream Hunt and had come up with a prize that I was aching to show off. I had found this gorgeous not-quite-necklace — but definitely a come hither neckline apparel showpiece — by EvelineInTheBox which is their prize for the Hunt for just 1L if you find the little cup of cream. The gold interwoven chains are each connected by tiny red beads, and the entire thing is resizable for the perfect fit. I knew that if I could find the perfect dress… I’d be ready to explore that mysterious oasis I now consider Elysion.

Woman with the red dress on.

It turned out that I found what I was looking for at The Beautiful Ones. Right now you can pick up the Sarah group gift there one of two ways. It is out as a FREE group gift (just pay the vendor 1L and your 1L will be immediately refunded to you). The group join fee is a mere 25 Linden. OR if you don’t have a lot of group space, you can pick up this beautiful applier dress with rigged mesh skirt panels for just 10L (no group space required).

Appliers included: System Layers, Omega and TMP

The Sarah dress also comes with a color change hud with 6 color choices. I’m showing you the dress in red (it matched those lovely and delicate red beads on my neck piece I was telling you about), but with 6 color choices, this is a dress that is versatile.

All decked out.

Now that I was all decked out, it was time to make my visit. I found Elysion prepared for winter… and while there were visitors scattered here and there, no one stopped to disturb me. I wandered the paths and eventually ended up upon the terrace of a stone cottage where I took my picture overlooking the pines next to a sheer curtain. Don’t worry, the fireplace is not too far away… I’ll warm up in time to be off to find more freebies.

Gala Roses

Gala Roses

If April Showers bring May flowers… I’m all in! Either way, I have a couple of pretty group gifts to share with you 🙂

TBO The Beautiful Ones has a pretty teal colored gift dress called Gala for its group members. This dress is FREE with your 25L group membership, OR if you are already a member of the subscribo (not a new subscriber… so if you aren’t already subscribed, hit that subscriber to get in on future offers!) you can just hit the subscriber to get the gift as a second option!

This sweet dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitted mesh, Physique, and Maitreya.

I paired my new dress with the April group gift from Ecco Jewelry. The group tag is 200L, but you’ll have access to lots of past group gifts as well, and I suspect that a fresh new May group gift will be coming out soon too! This beautiful Chainmail & Roses collar set off my dress very nicely. It also comes with a hud to change the colors (8 choices for the roses, 3 choices for the metals), making this a very versatile piece for your jewelry box!

Supernova

Supernova It’s been an awesome weekend and Pru is ready for a casual afternoon enjoying some quiet time at the beach. There’s something about salty sea air that can be so refreshing. Speaking of casual and refreshing, this cute strapless top is the most recent group gift from The Beautiful Ones. I love the patchwork/paisley fabric used for this top, the colors are so pretty, they remind me of a kaleidoscope. This FREE group gift comes in standard mesh sizes and additional fit mesh sizes for specific mesh bodies. To get this cute FREE top from The Beautiful Ones, just wear your group tag and click the gift vendor. Not a group member? The Beautiful Ones group does carry a one time fee of just 25 lindens.
Rings Close

I have to tell you, I’m obsessed with stacking rings, in RL and SL. Needless to say when I saw these cute rings by ieQED were just 29 lindens per play in a gacha at Shiny Shabby… … I made sure to get them all! These seriously cute rings are full mesh with re-size scripts. The RARE item is the color change hud, which lets you change the color of the gems and metal parts. I love the little bumble bees and flowers and the message ring, well it’s certainly good for a giggle! You’ll want to head over to Shiny Shabby to get these rings at 29 lindens per play, after the event they will be available in the ieQED store, but the per play price will be 49 lindens.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Country Boho & Feathers

Country Boho & Feathers 2

I was born and raised in the country… and so the latest FREE group gift from The Beautiful Ones just stole my heart, and I knew I had to show it to you. For a mere 25L the TBO group tag is yours, and then you can have this fabulous Lupe Boho cardigan and top. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes, as well as a generous assortment of fitmesh sizes… including Physique, Hourglass, Freya, Isis, Venus, and Maitreya. The top is one piece for easy wear, and I paired it with my favorite jeans for a classic country look.

Country Boho & Feathers

I wanted some pretty jewelry to go with my new top, so I hopped on the marketplace and happened across a happy find… this lovely necklace and earrings set called Feather by Miam Miam. It had just the delicate boho look I wanted, and is texture change for three metal colors (silver, gold, and copper). For only 10L, I think it was a steal of a deal.

Boot Stomping Deal

Boot Stomping Deal
Confession time I totally grabbed this whole outfit from The Beautiful Ones (TBO) just for the boots. I have to admit tho after drooling over these well detailed & textured boots I took note that the whole outfit is well made. You get the mesh dress, scarf and boots, each piece can be worn separately. The dress has system, Belleza, Slink and Maitrya fits. The boots don’t require anything more than system feet and have a resizer so they can work with mesh bodies. You have a few options of how to get this outfit. A. Join the group for 25L and the dress is FREE. B. Buy the dress on Marketplace for  25L. C. Buy the dress for 10L only at the TBO store location. Such a cute outfit even at 25L its a good deal.

Winter Blues

“I’ll have a blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t be the same, dear, if you’re not here with me” [Elvis]

Elvis is in the snow! Err… in the pavilion. Err… in the house! Okay so this dress has me singing the blues, but not in a bad way! And you’ll be singing the blues too once you see how perfect this gown is for winter blues!

Winter Blues 1

“And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin’ all right with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas” [Elvis]

A white holiday is traditional, but a blue one is stunning, especially in this gorgeous gown from The Beautiful Ones .:TBO:. called Selina Long Tail in Turquoise. One of the things I loved best about this formal holiday gown is that not only did it come in all the standard mesh sizes, but it also came in several fitted mesh sizes which accommodated my fuller and curvy avatar figure! Yay! I didn’t have to slim down my sliders at all to fit into this dress which just thrilled me!

You’ll find that there are two great ways you can take this dress home for the holidays when you stop by the TBO main-store. You can either pick it up as a FREE group gift (the group is 25L to join with later group gifts to pick up) OR if you are low on group space you can pick it up for the tiny fee of just 10L instead without the group join. A very nice offer indeed!

Winter Blues 2

“You’ll be doin’ all right with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas” [Elvis]

[MUSE] NSP Florals was doing it right in blue for their December gift as well with this lovely choker and earrings gift set which you can pick up FREE with your group tag (the group is 75L to join if you are not already a member, but offers beautiful monthly gifts for your small fee). This set is fully adjustable and resizable for the perfect fit and has a lustrous, almost snowflake affect that makes it perfect for holiday parties.

Who said white was the color of the season? Give me that blue, blue holiday. Sing it, Elvis!

Neko Roots

Neko

Hello there Fab Free! It’s always good to see you. Some who know me may also know that I started my Second Life as a Neko. I couldn’t help myself, I wanted fuzzy kitty ears and a long fluffy tail! Though it’s been a very long time since I donned ears and a tail, I found myself so inspired today when I put on the November group gift from Knockers. This cute little off-the-shoulder sweater and leopard print skirt combo is too cute to pass up. I think the swanky little cat emblem on the top makes it even more irresistible. The Knockers group has a one time join fee of 150 lindens, however the monthly gifts are so worth the effort.

To go with my adorable new outfit from Knockers,  I picked up yet another equally adorable group gift. These too cute shoes are the current group gift at The Beautiful Ones. They are a group only color of the Eleanore T-Strap stilettos. The Beautiful Ones group also has a one time join fee of 25 lindens. Even with the fee, these shoes are so pretty, the 25 lindens makes them a steal. The shoes are meant for Slink High feet.

Lastly, every Neko needs a pretty set of claws to mach her outfit. I found a wearable demo from LIVIA on the Marketplace that gave me this gorgeous turquoise manicure, and includes options for 3 additional pastel colors. This functional demo is meant for Slink or Omega compatible nails, and is completely FREE on the Marketplace.
