Coquette

30L Saturday is always prime time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe, and this Saturday was no exception! I found a couple of pieces that I fell in love with this morning and wanted to share with you!

Coquette

This Dionne Gown in Bronze is by Velvet Whip. I’m showing it to you without the optional scarf and undershirt, as I also picked up the silver owl Coquette necklace that you can see in the close-up below. The necklace is also from Velvet Whip. Each piece is only 30L each, and makes for a stunning addition to a medieval or gorean roleplay wardrobe.

The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as three fitmesh sizes, so you are sure to find a good fit. The necklace is copy and modify to allow for adjustments as well, making 30L a great price for this beautiful piece.

Be sure to hurry though, these deals are only for today!

Last Exit to the Weekend

Last Exit to the Weekend

This morning was chilly and it made me think that spring was having her last fling before summer. And of course today is Friday… that last exit before the weekend. I have a few special treats to get you through the day until Saturday blooms, though:)

If you’ve not yet started the Runway Perfect Hunt, you should consider picking up this dress by Loordes of London. I really like the unique style of this one piece mesh cover up (which has the look and feel of layers). It’s long enough to be a dress, but short enough to be a shirt. You could easily pair it with your favorite jeans or capris. It will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time for the black and white prim. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, and Physique.

Last Exit to the Weekend

Chop Zuey has out a new group gift called Harlow Creed… a texture change ring. I have always really loved cameos, but this one also appealed to my sense of Gothic flair. So I nabbed it up to show off to you as well. It offers 3 metal choices and several color choices for the cameo part. The group is 350L to join, but you’ll be getting regular gifts to offset this fee, making it well worth your fee.

Last Exit to the Weekend

And since it *is* Friday, I decided to scout out the Fifty Linden Friday deals… and discovered that Livalle was offering a set of maryjanes that I really fell in love with. Previously this pair of shoes was offered in the color mint as a gift (Calleja showed them to you Here). If you missed out on that great offer, you can pick up a four pack of the shoes today. You’ll get cherry, navy, pink, and white in the box for your 50L. These shoes fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

Forged

Greetings All.

Forged

One of the premier Second Life Magazines for men’s wear and accessories has to be L’Homme. In addition to superb photography, each issue brings a wealth of high quality gifts from first rate SL Designers. My compatriot, Loki, showed us the ‘Easton’ leather jacket with the tee-shirt option here and I’ve donned the shirtless version for this post. (Blame Julianna.)   I have also visited the Forge for their L’Homme gift, the ‘Banshee Welding Goggles’.  While I was at the Forge, I also picked up the ‘Rockstar’ necklace another surprise free gift for L’Homme readers.

The L’Homme readers group is free to join and is a valuable source for good quality men’s wear updates. I recommend it, enthusiastically.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Gabriel St. James

A Shot in the Dark

A Shot in the Dark

The Runway Perfect Hunt is proving perfect for filling out wardrobes… both for the gals and the guys. Which is always welcome. I stopped by Wicca’s Wardrobe this morning while making my way through some of the hunt stops, and picked up this pair of Ares pants, which is the creator’s contribution to the hunt. The jeans have a biker/metal/rock feel with the black and leather and the chains in the back which had me searching for a rock venue to take my photo for you. They come in all the standard mesh sizes, and like all Wicca’s Wardrobe items, are of an excellent quality. They are well worth 5L and then some.

I paired my new pants with the latest group gift for men at Chop Zuey. These FREE group gift bracelets called A Shot in the Dark offer 2 metal choices (silver or brass) and 4 leather choices (black, brown, yellow, and blue). The Chop Zuey group does have a one time fee of 350L, but the creator is generous with regular group gifts for loyal members (for both men and women), making this fee worth it in the long run.

That Touch of Pink

That Touch of Pink

Hi Fab Free’rs I hope you had a great weekend and a good start to the week so far. Also to those who’ve celebrated Mother’s Day or are celebrating today, Happy Mother’s Day!! Today I am excited to share this cute almost bubble goth style look with you. You can get this entire outfit including the dress, shoes, ring, and the mani/pedi for just 75 linden. Like always I tell you specifically how, and where in the details below. I hope you enjoy this look. Pink may not always be my go-to color but I definitely love it as an accent color. I personally really love the way this outfit turned out.
That Touch of Pink Close

Usually I’d start from the top and end with the shoes. Tonight I’m going to start by telling you about these fantastic FREE shoes from Empire. Recently Empire put up 6 lucky boards at their main store. Each board has a specific pair of shoes in a single lucky board only color. That’s right, not only are these shoes FREE, they are in an exclusive color for that shoe style. There is a group tag needed to play these lucky boards, however, it’s a FREE-to-join Empire Updates group. This group is separate from the Empire VIP group that allows you to claim group gifts. The group joiner for the FREE Empire Updates group is located just under the lucky boards. Definitely make sure you’re joining the right group. The shoes Pru is wearing for this look are just 1 of the 6 pairs. Additionally, each pair of shoes comes in several sizes/fits for specific mesh feet. If you ask me they are definitely worth stalking the lucky boards for!

Next,  I picked up this beautiful ring and the simple yet classic manicure/pedicure at SWANK for FREE. The ring is a beautiful statement abalone ring. I have always loved abalone in jewelry. The shell has beautiful swirls of green and blue with hints of pink and violet. I think it’s not only a beautiful piece, but versatile as well. You could wear it with anything and it would look amazing! This particular FREE gift at SWANK is from Vintage Touch. Also at SWANK is this undeniably classic white french tip manicure/pedicure set from Tashi. This gift is FREE as well, and includes appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega nails in several “nude” tones. Everyone  should have a simple white french-tip manicure in their inventory.

Now for the dress! This sweet little black dress from Apple May Designs has  a lot of simple charm. The sweetheart cut to the top and the extra wide flare to the skirt gives the dress a doll-like look. One of the best features of the dress is the thin belt. Included with this dress from Apple May Designs is a color-change hud that allows you to choose between several pastel colors for the belt. You can purchase this dress on the Marketplace from Apple May Designs for just 75 lindens as their Buy Now offer.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tennis Anyone?

Tennis anyone? I put together an outfit that made me feel like going out on the courts today!

Tennis Anyone? 2

I have to say, I am loving the gifts at this round of FaMESHed! I picked up a few that I think you’ll definitely want to add to your wardrobe. These items have a luxury sports feel to them that are perfect for that “country club tennis court” look. Best part is… all these gifts are FREE! Just join the FaMESHed Group and click the boxes at the booths.

I picked up my fat pack of amazing locks at Damselfly. This style is called Francie, and if you pick up this FREE gift, you get every color available in the gift.

My earrings are the luxury earrings gift from the Noche display, and I also picked up these great sunglasses from Kitja. The sunglasses gift come in silver or gold. Both of these accessories, like the hair, are FREE gifts.

Tennis Anyone?

The last (but not least) item I am showing you is this sporty looking V-neck dress from Coco Designs. It comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh and Maitreya. It too is a FREE FaMESHed gift.

Smart

Greetings FabFree readers.

Sharp

Nothing makes a man look more confident and put together than a smart suit. The “Mr. SL” suit from Dot Be Fashion fits that bill perfectly. The jacket, vest, trousers and leather strap tie and even the well shined shoes are all part of one piece for ease of dressing. The outfit comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and comes with a full piece alpha layer. The details are extremely well made and the suit moves properly when the wearer walks. Something greatly appreciated by the more fashion minded.

The Mr. SL Suit from Dot Be Fashion is the 1L prize for the Runway Perfect Hunt running until May 31st.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Gabriel St. James

Stepping Outside the Box

Hello FabFree! I decided to step outside the box a little today!

Stepping Out

I admit that I really love the “hippie” look. And the latest FREE group gift from EvelineInTheBox had me beboppin’ to the main-store to snatch it up. I was feeling the flower power on this one! I love this dress! It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink fits too! The group is FREE to join, making this dress totally FREE! It’s a groovy deal!

Stepping Out 2

To add to my “flower power” look I picked up the Flower Parure Jewelry Set from Miss Jewell for just 1L! It is their gift for the May Flower Hunt. It includes a nifty necklace plus matching earrings and the lip cuff. And I love that it matched my dress!
