The way you look tonight

The Way You Look Tonight

Lovely, never, never change
Keep that breathless charm
Won’t you please arrange it?
‘Cause I love you
just the way you look tonight

 

I was humming some old Frank Sinatra the entire time I was arranging this post. Doesn’t it fit perfectly? The gorgeous red dress and Gabriel’s handsome matching tuxedo, well, I think we look fantastic!

And who, you might ask, is responsible for this stunning couples new clothes? Why, that would be the delightful R&R Swag! I was fortunate enough to meet and have a lovely chat with the designers/ owners of R&R while camping the Lucky Boards. They both are truly delightful people. I was only too tickled to be able to show off my new free dress ‘Timeless’ and Gabe’s tux, ‘Royal’ from the Lucky Boards.

I have to mention that R&R Swag is going to be your new best friend if you are under 30 days old. You need to head over to the Rookie Alley in the main store. Everything there is free for any avatar under 30 days old. No group, no muss. no fuss… just fill your closet. They haven’t forgotten you if you are over 30 days. The Group is free to join and there are a ton of free Group Gifts. The Lucky Boards are also free/no group needed. AND there are a bunch of third party Group Gifts too! What are you waiting for?? Get over there!

Timeless

My dress is one of the current free Lucky Board prizes up at R&R Swag. I think it’s one of the loveliest formal dresses I have had the pleasure to show off. You not only get the dress, you get two bracelets, two rings, the earrings, the necklace, the heels and a stole (not pictured). Can you say “Wow”? The jewelry is resizable to get your perfect fit.

Gabriel is always a cutie *stop rolling your eyes, Gabe*  But this tuxedo is just something else. The lines are very sleek and modern and the build is perfect. You get a long list of accessories for the guys in the prize as well. Along with the jacket/shirt combo and pants, you’ll get the belt, the bow tie, separate cuffs, and shoes with and without socks. I’ll have to be on my guard when we go out in this get up, ’cause all the girls will be looking him over.

The mountains are calling

The Mountains are Calling

While Juli is tearing her hair out hunting ghosts at Spookzilla… I went for a relaxing hike. Don’t worry, I’ll have to do my time at Spookzilla, but not today. Today is just me and the dog and the mountains.

And what, you may ask has me in this nature and hiking mood? It’s the shirt. My warm plaid shirt is the current free Group Gift from FKD. It just screamed hikes and camp fires and time away from civilization. So I followed the call.

Off the grid

Off the grid

As Juli would say… I am in a mood today, my friends. It’s one of those days that everything goes frustratingly wrong. I need a get-away. Luckily, I have a buddy who is always up for a good gallop in some wild part of the grid.

All the pretty horses

The Flying Pony has joined the Fabulously Free Family and become one of our Fab Designers. I know Juli and I can’t be the only equestrians  in the group, so let’s rally and show the love for all things horse. The Flying Pony has set out a beautiful new coat for free for all of us in the FabFree Group. Mystic, is wearing the “Badger Face” coat from the Flying Pony and it’s stunning. “Badger Face” refers to the white marking on the face. Horses with this coloration, have a sort of ‘inverted’ blaze. That is, they have the base coat color in a large swath inside the white of the blaze. It’s a fascinating color genetic. Especially when seen on a coat with a strong roaning, such as this one.

Coat Appliers

  • Teegle Bento Avatar
  • TeeglePet Animash Horses
  • Teegle Animesh Unicorn

Comfort in the hood

One nice thing about just riding out on the grid, is I don’t have to dress to impress anyone but myself. I found this great looking and very comfortable hoodie out on the “Femboy Hunt” for only a little searching and 2 little Lindens.  The “Soft Hoodie” from Krankhaus has a great design of a Tarrot card-like ‘Death’ that fits the FemBoy Hunt theme “Occult” perfectly and sets it apart from the ton of other hoodies on the grid.

Sizes Included

  • Kuroo ( I wear Belleza and this style fits me very well)
  • Maitreya ( Shows a slite female shape)
  • V-Tech

As Stan reported a few days ago, The latest issue of L’Homme is out. With the Fifth anniversary issue comes a selection of gifts for the readers. To become a member of the free L’ Homme Reader’s group, simply tap the sign at any of the participating designers. Then help yourself to the gifts. Don’t forget to peruse the issue itself at L’Homme Magazine Second Life.

Brights and Bold

I had to help myself to this well tailored shirt from Meva as soon as I saw it. This is the ‘Marcus’ dress shirt and it is part of a set offered to the L’Homme readers. The shirt comes with a pair of matching pants. It’s called orange but I see it more as a sunshine yellow. It made me think of tropical vacations and margaritas in a sidewalk café. So that’s exactly where I’m headed off to.

Oh The Places You’ll Go

Four Wheelin'

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I took off for the desert this past weekend and had a blast.  We dropped the old truck down into four wheel drive and made our own roads.  Of course, any trip out into treacherous terrain needs clothes suitable for the task, and it was the perfect opportunity to get my newest top broken in.  I picked it up free as a group gift.

Roam if You Want To

Over at the [ContraptioN] shop, I discovered the Roamer’s Top in Sundown set out as a free gift for members of the L’Homme Magazine Group.  With its black fading to red color scheme, long sleeves and high collar, this shirt is ideal for a day out roughing it.  The designer included great visual details such as the silvery design emblazoned on the sleeves, the realistic wrinkles in the fabric and the buckled strap that extends diagonally across the chest.  The folder contains versions for a variety of mesh body avatars.  This gift is the “Sundown” edition, which has just one color scheme.  A single texture HUD is included so that someone owning the full fatpack of the Roamer’s Top can use the HUD to mix the unique textures of this special edition with options found in their full collection.  Since the L’Homme Magazine Group has no join fee, you can add this rugged top to your collection for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Pin Up?

Pin Up?

I have a couple of my favorite things today. Comfortable, well-broken in jeans, a casual tee shirt and a cold ‘adult beverage.’  The best thing is I didn’t have to work too hard for two of them. Just 1 linden for the jeans and some hunt time for the tee.

Around the Grid

Around the Grid in Eighty Days is one of the bigger well known hunts in Second Life and the seventh annual hunt is in full swing until September 30th. That’s a good long time to hunt down some top notch prizes. Happily, there are a lot of good men’s items on the hunt along side the women’s fare. Like these perfect destressed jeans from ZFG. Just look for the red and yellow hot air balloon and a toss in one linden and they’re yours.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • SLink

I’m NOT sure I like the idea of Dumpster diving….

But… I really like this tee. This is the ‘Pin Up’ tee from The Sissy Bar and it’s the free prize for the Dumpster Diving Hunt. Luckily, I didn’t have to crawl in a dumpster to grab this great tee shirt. While you’re at The Sissy Bar looking for the tiny trash can… be sure to check out all the Hunts running and the past hunts shelves. TSB always has a solid selection of men’s items in their hunts. Something VERY much appreciated.

Time is Fleeting

It's About Time

This is going to be fast one from me. I wanted to make a ‘quickie’ joke but Julianna forbid it. So I didn’t.  At any rate, this is the last twenty four hours of the Star Spangled Hunt put on by Sweet Intoxication. So if you want any of the 1L prizes, you’ll need to hurry.

About Time

This is the Tygren Shirt with the “Time Rose” pattern. It is the gentlemen’s prize on the very first stop on the Hunt: at Sweet Intoxication. I am rather impressed with the old school vintage tattoo look of the design and I foresee wearing it often. As I said, if you want to pick up this excellent shirt for yourself you need to hurry along before the Hunt ends tomorrow.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aestheti
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – S-L
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP
