Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Teacher’s Pet

A Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged on Tailor Made in SL, [HERE]

Listen up, all you guys who need to impress your teacher by the end of the semester so you can graduate.  If you want to show you are a serious student, just get yourself over to the Adjunct store pronto where there is a clearance sale going on up on the second floor.

Image

There are some real finds up there and each one is only $10L. My dress shirt can be bought in any of several colors and includes both tucked and untucked versions of the long-sleeved or rolled-up sleeve styles. Both styles come in open collar or buttoned collar looks. Take it from someone who should know, teachers just love that neat, tidy, tucked-in shirt look. The bow tie is one I had in my inventory from an earlier hunt and is not sold with the shirt. I’ve paired the shirt with Adjunct’s suspender pants, also only $10L. For that low price you get both the long version with tidy prim cuffs and short ones with rolled up prim legs. If you want to use your suspenders to hold up your pants there is a choice of six jacket-layer color schemes including the orange and green style I’m wearing. If you’d rather let the suspenders hang down, just wear the prim version instead, which comes with a resizer and a texture change menu.

That gets me to the all-important personal style choices one needs to make to reinforce the serious student look. First you will need thick glasses with black frames, and this pair is available from Fleebish! on the Marketplace for just $20L. Hair should be short and well-groomed, preferably slicked down in a 1950′s style like this Frank hair which is the Breakfast at Tiffany’s hunt gift from A&A Hair. If you choose to wear a hat, it should be the kind worn by French intellectuals, namely a beret. This one is $10L from Adjunct’s clearance sale, and has a color-change script in it so that you can color coordinate with your suspenders. Now finally, facial hair is optional, but if you wear it, it should be neatly groomed like this Dali mustache, also just $10L at the Adjunct sale. Adjunct has several mustache styles on sale and all of them – get this – have a wiggling animation which you can turn on and off. What a deal!

Voila! There you have it – the perfect nerd – oops! — I mean, serious student look. And don’t forget an apple for the teacher.

Geoffrey is wearing:

Shirt (bow tie not included), suspender pants, beret hat, Dali mustache – Adjunct – Clearance Sale items – each item $10L

Glasses – Thick Glasses. $20L – Fleebish! on the MP

Guest Blog by WHC Riler – Are You Man Enough To Wear Pink ?

Guest Blog by WHC Riler, originally posted on This Scavenging Life – Confessions of A Second Life Hoarder – Are You Man Enough To Wear Pink ?…

May has been a fantastic month for hunting, and perhaps my favorite men’s hunt gift of them all is this brilliant bit of color from Lyrieal’s Boutique & Furrtastic for the Shades Of Pink Hunt.  Now I know what you guys are thinking, and yes the shirt is pink.  It’s not like you want to stand out from all the cyber dorks dressed head to toe in black leather or anything, I mean they look so cool.  Sometimes though, you simply have to man up, break out of the pack and show off a little, and this is a wonderfully eye catching outfit to do that in.  The top portion is mesh of course with the vest, shirt and tie integrated into it.  The pants are simple pants layer jeans, not mesh but well done, and the mesh boots alone make this a bargain even if you lack the stones to show a little color.  Shades Of Pink Hunt, 1L Grab it now because come June first its going to be gone.  By the way, if you are man enough to wear pink I still have you beat because I own a vintage orange “Cheetos” tee shirt in real life and I can totally rock that.  It’s good to be a man.——–WHC Riler

NOTE – The above gift does have something in it for the ladies as well!

I [BE]lieve in Aphorism!

Snapshot_007Hello Fabulouses :)  I hope you had a fantastic week!  It’s been a busy one for me, but I hope to catch up on showing some fabulous freebies over the next couple of days!

Today, I am here to share with you a casual urban outfit that was pretty inexpensive to put together – with some items being free, and some 10L!

I started out with the these mesh Hipster Boot Cut Jeans that are a free opening subscriber gift at !Aphorism!.  All you need to do is subscribe instore – and you’ll be auto sent these jeans in both a women’s and mens version as well.  This offer is only valid until November 10th, so make sure you make a trip down there before then.

Now that I had my boot cut jeans, I needed a pair of boots! lol…  I remembered I had picked up these awesome grey Belted Ankle Boots months back at Coco after reading Serena’s post (here) and knew they’d be just right.  These are a free group  gift / free to join!.

The Black Urban Cross Blazer with T-Shirt is a one piece mesh unit that you can find on Marketplace in the [BE]lieve store for just 10L.  I am wearing the black version, but you can choose from other colours as well for the same low price.

Just one of the Guys!

Hi Everyone! Especially since joining Fab Free I often get asked by my male friends “where can I find good freebies and cheapies for guys?”. So with that in mind, meet Diamos, my partner turned male alter ego! Finding quality mens freebies is often a challenge. I have noticed however, that if you’re willing to dig, there are a lot of male freebies and cheapies on the Second Life Marketplace. Just for all the guys out there, I was able to put together eight different outfits using mostly free or cheap items found on the Marketplace or from group gifts and hunts. I hope you like them!

egoisme_Final

New from Egoisme are the mesh Glamour Shirts located inside the Pret-a-Porter building. I love the style of these and they come in a variety of colors and prints! Above I wearing the Golden Zebra, which sells for 250L. What’s that?

“This is Fabfree, where is the free stuff?” WELL…Egoisme is being very generous and offering a free, exclusive Glamour Shirt to their group members!

Shameless Retribution
