Jacket Weather

Jacket Weather

Good morning! I stepped out for a stroll and realized it was jacket weather! Of course jacket weather is my favorite… because it means I get to break out my favorite jackets!

The good news is, that if you hop over to BYRNE right now, you can slap the subscribo for a FREE jacket of your very own! This great black and white jacket in its geometric design goes great over applier or system layer tops and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. It went out to subscribo members the other day, so if you are already a subscriber, hopefully it is in your inventory. If not, just check the history on the subscriber to get this goodie!

There are two versions of the jacket in the gift. The black version I am showing you, which is mostly black with white highlighting… OR! A white version which is much more prominently white with black strips instead. So you are bound to find your fit and your favorite jacket.😉

Shiny Shabby Surely!

whc rispetto 1_001

whc rispetto 2_002

Hello everyone! It is I, your intrepid male freebie/cheapie hunter with a quick post for you. February will be over soon and will bring to a close two fabulous hunts: Menstuff and Jack Or Jill. If you have been putting it off, now is the time to start hunting! The amount of quality men’s hunt prizes available at the moment is impressive, and all yours for a little bit of effort! Even more time sensitive, though, is a pair of freebies that are available right now and will not be out very much longer.

Shiny Shabby is celebrating it’s anniversary on Second Life by throwing a big sales event featuring an unbelievable number of freebies. The Hoorenbeek stall at Shiny Shabby is offering as its free anniversary gift the Mesh Military Boots in Burgundy. As with all Hoorenbeek products, the texturing is amazing and the overall quality is excellent. I never pass up an opportunity to pick up free Hoorenbeek and neither should you, especially since this gift comes with both male and female versions in the box. The boots come in regular and short variations with the eyelets and laces texture changable via hud, and if that isn’t generous enough they also include the mesh jeans i am wearing and the mesh belt in two variants! While over at Shiny Shabby also check out what Amacci has put out as a free gift. The Zenith Eyes in Mocha are a striking set of Mesh eyes adjustable via hud. Additionally included are versions for those who prefer using legacy eyes. As you can see by the many Shiny Shabby items featured on Fab Free this week, it is an event not to be missed. Now you have two more excellent reasons to head on over there!

I started this post mentioning two great men’s hunts that are winding up this month. Rispetto Designsfree Jack Or Jill Hunt gift is the Devin MESH Jacket & Hoodie in Army. As you can see from my lead picture it is a very casual looking garment. Appearing to be made up of multiple layers, this one piece of integrated mesh is beautifully textured to look well-worn and comfortable. Coming in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, this is a free hunt gift definitely worth getting your hands on. Also on the Jack Or Jill Hunt is the free hunt gift from 7 Deadly S{K}ins. The River in Taupe skin is a very handsome skin. Even though I usually like to show off skins by getting close to naked, this time I decided to spare all of you the gratuitous near nudity and just tell you it’s a fine example of the kind of quality skins 7 Deadly S{K}ins is known for producing. When you are picking up these two hunt gifts look for the Menstuff Hunt prizes as well since both stores are also participating in that also.

That is all I have for you at the moment, but rest assured I will try to tempt you into going hunting at least once more before this month is over. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Thrifty Finds

Snapshot_007Hi there Fabulouses! Guess who just released a new wearable demo in their marketplace store??!  Yep – Orange*Pekoe!  This sweet peach coloured Valentine Cardigan is available for just 2L as a wearable demo in unisex/adult/teen sizes, as well as a with or without the shirt option.  I am wearing it with a pair of my favourite new jeans (Addam’s Real Worn Out Jeans @ this round of Uber) and the Spencer Flats that I picked up at Reign this past weekend for The Saturday Sale price of 75L.  These cute tied flats are still available at the sale price as of tonight in case you missed them on the weekend.

I also wanted to mention the Aphorism Thrift Shop Décor items I have used in the set for my photo today.  These items are 50L per play at this round of The Gacha Garden.  If you play 20 times, you will be gifted with the Seeds of Inspiration prize which is the Reclaimed Wood Clock.  This clock actually tells time, and allows you to set your own timezone (or your partner’s if you need a cheat sheet!).

Frozen, but Not Frozen

Snapshot_004Well hello there Fabulous Readers!!  I have returned… Yes, back in my jeans again lol – to show you this awesome shirt and sweater combo that you can pick up at BlackRose as a free group gift.  This sweater is called Frozen, but you’ll be far from it!

You can wear this sweater with or without the shirt, but I think it’s cute the way it hangs out the bottom of the sweater untucked ;)  This group is free to join and there are a couple of other gifts to pick up as well, so be sure to peek at those too.

G’nite!

Wear It, Wear It Again

Snapshot_003Hi there Fabulouses! I am stopping by the blog today to tell you all about a fabulous free group gift at Yasum!  Inworld VIPs can pick up the Snuggle Match Coatdress as a free gift after activating their group tags.  The Yasum Hunters group is free to join, and if you make your way around the different departments of the store, you will find all kinds of group gifts to snag!

Getting back to the Snuggle Match Coatdress…  I am wearing it as a jacket and shirt combo because I liked the boho look that shined through when I tossed on a pair of flared jeans, but you can wear this as a dress as it is “just” long enough.  The best part about this gift is that it comes with a texture change hud including 24 different texture choices, so you can wear this – and wear it again without anyone being the wiser!  Well.. except for me, I’ll know…  but I won’t tell!

An early Valentine’s Day

Hey FabFree-ers! I’m going so girly today.

An early Valentine's Day

I don’t usually go for the really swirly girly stuff…. but then I saw this gorgeous ball gown from Paris Metro. This is the “Mon Amou” and it is free from Paris Metro’s new Marketplace page.  However, this beautiful gift gown will only be free for a very short time.

The gown comes in system layers and includes appliers for Belleza, Omega and SLink. I think it’d be perfect for some ball room dancing…. now to find a partner to trip the light fantastic!

I go a walking, after midnight…

Hello Fabbies!! Happy Sunday. Hope you all have had a great weekend.  It is not currently midnight yet where I am, but tonight found me in a wandering mood, all the while, singing ‘Walking After Midnight’ by Patsy Cline. It’s a little weird on my part, as that is not the type of music I listen to, at all. Sometimes though, you just need to roll with it, so I made sure I had a good walking outfit, courtesy of Get Frocked and Cattiva.

walking_001

It really started with the current January group gift from Get Frocked. My fuzzy jacket, perfect for the snowy weather that has recently been hitting an awful lot of the North American continent, is both functional and cute! I love the red hearts pattern all over it. It is mesh, in all the standard sizes, and it is free for Get Frocked group members. The group is free to join, so even better! While I was grabbing this beauty, I also saw that Get Frocked is participating in the Black and White Hunt that is currently running, until the end of January. While the prizes for both paths are great, the black path prize really spoke to my black and red look that I had going on. This silky black shirt/dress is that black path prize. It is mesh, and again, is in all the standard sizes. I really like the length of it, as you could go the dress route like I did, or throw on a pair of jeans, and rock the long shirt look. Either way, that super low neckline lends itself to making a very sexy look. As I said, this hunt runs until the January 31, and all prizes, on either the black path, or the white path, are free.

Now, you can’t go walking without a good pair of boots. I had just picked up these sweet  7 League boots on the Marketplace from Cattiva for the teeny tiny sum of L$10! They do not need any kind of special feet, and are scripted for size change, as well as have modify permissions for those of you who like to hand adjust the sizing. If black is not your thing, or you love them a lot and want other colours, just take a look through the Cattiva MP store, as there are several other colours available. These babies make me want to start singing ‘These Boots are Made For Walking’ now. LOL.

Ok lovelies, I must be off. Monday morning comes way too quickly it seems, and I need to go finish up some odds and ends to be ready for RL work in the morning. The weekend needs to be 3 days I think…who’s with me? *grins* I will be back, so until next time, TTFN *waves*

An Avalanche Of Menstuff Begins!

whc winter rispetto 01

Greetings from the Arctic Circle! Well actually it’s the East Coast of the United States, but this weekend you can’t tell the difference. We are getting slammed with the white, fluffy stuff as I write this; and with some luck, I just might have electricity on long enough to get this posted!

Menstuff is, in my opinion, the best male hunt of the year. It is a 1L hunt, although some stores have opted to set their prizes out for free! The hunt object to look for is a dark blue T-Shirt shaped object. While they can be small, they are usually not hard to find.

The fantastic Trent Mesh Sweater in Charcoal from Rispetto Designs is where we begin the Menstuff coverage. This sweater has a heavy wool texture to help you look toasty, and the styling is simple and masculine. Click the above picture twice and get a good look at the texture. It’s marvelous! It is offered in five sizes for an easy fit. I found the Mesh looked flawless on me. Also, Rispetto Designs includes the Logoro Mesh Jeans in Blue/Grey in the Menstuff Hunt prize which are excellent and would be a solid garment to have building a casual wardrobe. They are realistically textured and come in five sizes also for a good fit. This is a prize that should not be ignored, especially if you are a new resident to second life! Items like these will have you looking great in no time and for only 1L!

whc winter hana 01

As I said, I have been hit in real life with one heck of a snowstorm! It is extremely cold here, so when I saw the 1L Open Cardigan W/Shirt Menstuff Hunt prize from Hanauma Bay Clothiers, I had to smile. Not only is it super good looking and well made, but it is a mesh piece layering two sweaters! This is a beautiful one-piece Mesh featuring a cardigan style sweater over a pull-over styled one. Offered in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, it will fit your avy quite nicely. Take it from me, the man wearing his entire real life wardrobe as he shovels the driveway, two sweaters are way better than one! Reminds me of the time I was driving down Lee Highway and a police car came up next to me. I heard the cop’s voice say, “Pull over!” I was so happy, I turned so he could see better and said “And a cardigan too! Hi-5!” It is always nice when someone notices a great looking garment on you.

whc winter bd 01

I debated whether to include the free Beautiful Dangerous Menstuff hunt prize, the Danny Sweater in Paynes Gray in this post or not. Truthfully, were I not racing a certain power outage, I would hold it for another entry. Why? There certainly isn’t anything wrong with the quality or the styling of this great sweater. No, it is simply that I felt the picture does not show it off as well as I would have liked. This is a beautiful sweater, masculine and simply styled to go with almost anything. It appears to be made of lighter material than the heavier texture of the Rispetto sweater, making it perfect when the weather is a bit on the cool side rather than a snowy landscape in the above picture. This is a sipping-brandy-by-the-fire kind of sweater and, as such, is very well executed. It is offered in five sizes for a good fit, and is a welcome addition to my wardrobe. The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but Beautiful Dangerous has put their hunt item out for free!

All these sweaters would be excellent pick ups and very solid parts of a male avy’s wardrobe. Menstuff has been an excellent hunt for me so far, ranking as the very best in terms of ratio of items kept, versus items deleted. It truly is time to start doing hunts and snapping up some quality goodies! I just noticed that the sound of my teeth chattering reminds me of the old manual typewriter I used to have long ago. Oh the memories! For now I am off to shovel snow and chase any stray penguins out of my yard. Take care, and I’ll see you on the grid (as long as the power stays on)!—–WHC Riler
