Day into Night

Day into Night

After all of Juli’s posts about how great the SL16B gifts are, I had to check it out for myself. I braved the lag and found a few nice gifts for us guys.

A to Zed

I saw these great shoes were the gift Zed was offering and I was so intrigued, I had to check out the rest of their offerings. I’m rather pleased I did. There are several gifts scattered about the shop. A very smart high necked sweater with a large HUD of colors and this full ensemble suit. I like the unusual choice of a tee shirt instead of a collared shirt and a chain necklace instead of a tie. Sometimes edgy is a good thing.  The ‘Lovers Day’ suit comes with the blazer and shirt combination, the pants, the dragonhead chain, a bracelet and it’s own set of shoes. There is also a matching cocktail dress for the ladies on the women’s side of the shop.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh – S-L
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Shoes – SLink and Standard

Head to Toe

Now, about these shoes. The ‘Winklepicker Pikes’ ( it’s a style of shoe or boot worn from the 1950s onward by British rock and roll fans.) are Zed’s official Second Life 16th Birthday Celebration Free Gift. The generous Zed has given us the entire fatpack of the shoes so you should find a color and style that suits your every outfit.

Sizes Included

  • SLink
  • Standard (Resizable)

It’s always refreshing to see Designers offering high quality gifts for the men of Second Life.  As Ms. Aline said in her report on the Access Event, the men have not been ignored when it comes to gifts. Nearly every vender of men’s wear has set out a very nice surprise for us. And as Ms. Aline also said: beware the lag! Cam Shopping is the way to go.

All Access

All  of the following items are free at the Access Event when you join the free group. Just wear your tag and help yourself.

Let’s start with my decision not to shave today. Or should I say, selectively shave today. This suave razor cut is from Fe Style. Facial hair style ‘V. GG’ comes with a Catwa and an Omega applier.

Like the shades? These Steampunkish glasses are the ‘Epic Glasses’ from Noir. You’ll get a huge HUD to change every surface to your choice of one of four metal colors. A note here as well on the solid quality of the build. Every detail is spot on.

I know a lot of men don’t like jewelry but I’m not one of them. Like most things in life, it all depends on the quality of the piece. This pendant from Aitui fits the bill perfectly. This is the “Forged Steel Snake” in a deep mahogany color. The necklace is completely resizable to get a correct fit on any body.

Last but not least, my pose is from “Wrong” but it is so right. “W33” comes in four variations and includes a cigarette for the pose. (Don’t tell Juli… she hates smoking) I’ve included a picture of all four poses for you perusal.

One last thing…

FabFree: One last thing...

Hey there Fabulouses!  I know, I have been here once already today, but I promise this time I’ll be way less wordy and to the point!  When I read the news on Juli’s post earlier saying that the Cosmopolitan Anniversary Round was over tomorrow, I knew I had to get this post up so you have time to grab it before it’s gone.

Seeing Red

As mentioned in several previous posts here on The FabFree Blog, almost every vendor at this Anniversary Round of Cosmopolitan has a free group gift set to the free to join Cosmopolitan group.  Nerido has boxed up for us, a very sexy (fitted for Maitreya Lara) lingerie piece called Nicole Bodysuit in Red.  It’s pretty sheer, so I am strategically posed, but also posed in a way that you can see the sweet bows at the back.

That’s it from me tonight – Sweet dreams!!

**************

Love is wearing…

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head – Catwa Catya
Head Applier – Glam Affair Anais
Tan Lines – Alaskametro Tan Lines
Eyelashes – Euphoric Stella Lashes 
Hair – Argrace Kohaku

Lingerie – Nerido Nicole Bodysuit (Maitreya) Red (free group gift / 0L / free to join @ Cosmopolitan)

Pose – PosEd Fallen Angel

In a Mood

In a Mood

It’s not always easy to find good free or almost free things for the men of Second Life. Sometimes, I skip entire events because I just know there’s nothing there for me. I very glad I didn’t skip this round of Cosmopolitan.

Hats off

Or hats on… this is the “Weatherman” from Bondi and it’s the free gift at Cosmopolitan. The hat is technically ‘unisex’ but don’t take this from me. The hat is completely resizable and repositionable so you can get the perfect fit. Just join the Cosmopolitan free group and pick up your gifts.

On the Hunt

In my never ending hunt for men’s fashion, I scour the Hunts each month and this month has been productive. I stumbled on the ‘Red Shoe Diaries’ “Little Black Book Hunt and it has not one but two tracks just for the men. One track, the one I’m showing prizes from, has a 1L price tag for each gift and the second track is 25L per prize.

First up is the “Cole” shirt from The Sissy Bar. As with everything I’ve seen from this designer, Cole is well made and subtly textured. Well worth the 1L and the time hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • David
  • Exmachina – Davide
  • Signature – Gianni, Gerault
  • SLink – Physique

Classic Jeans

Next up on the RSD/LBB Hunt are the “Bridgeport Jeans” from Horr Menswear. I really am impressed with these jeans. Jeans are such a staple of our wardrobe, it can be easy to toss out subpar pairs and hope no one notices. Horr Menswear has done just the opposite: they’ve made a first rate pair of jeans. Every detail is perfect and the texture couldn’t be better. And it’s still just 1L and a little hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – XS-XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink – Physique
  • TMP

The sea calls to me

FabFree: The sea calls to me

Hey there Fabulouses!  Pru and Aline have both showed you some really nice things in recent blog posts that you can find at the Women Only Hunt & Gacha Event, and I have returned today to show you one of the hunt prizes by [QE] Designs that I really like!

On the fringe

I am a sucker for fringes and when I saw the ad for the [QE] Fringe Kini in the tropics print, I knew I had to get on my hunting glasses and find the hidden kitten with this prize in it.  This 2pc swimwear set comes in several mesh bodies as listed below.  This particular hunt prize is 25L, but some of the others by this maker are 10L.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara

Beach Weekend, Part 2

Beach weekend, Part 2

I have to admit, I am enjoying this beach weekend idea of Julianna’s. There’s nothing like the surf and sand and soaking in the sun. Of course, one must look good even while one is being very… very lazy.

Don’t waffle on this one

Waffles, the clothing shop not the breakfast, has a great tank top perfect for being lazy on or off the beach. This is the “Summer Surf Hank Jersey” and it’s the 1L prize for the Summer Lovin’ Hunt. Just find the blue flip flop hidden in the store and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • Jake
  • TMP

A Happy Ending for Your Monday

Sea Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  Yesterday in my post {HERE}, I told you about a free outfit and free earrings.  Well, today the pupster and I are back with a second pairing of a free frock and free baubles.  Now that’s a way to make Monday happier for sure!  Unfortunately, the free dress has been replaced with another gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL, which is a butterfly top.

Blossoms Galore

Summer blooms abound on the latest gift from Sweet Willows for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  With slender straps, a plunging neckline and dramatically low cut back and sides, this frock is most definitely for warm summer days.  You’ll be free to soak in the sunshine and have your skin caressed by warm summer breezes with this mini dress.  Delicate white flowers scattered across a solid color background lend a cheery vibe to the outfit.  I chose a sky blue fabric, but with the included HUD, you could also opt for pink, yellow, green or purple, so it’s quite flexible.  You’ll probably want to make strategic use of the alpha layer of your mesh body to preserve modesty while wearing it.  To add this saucy little number to your inventory, activate your Fab Free group tag (it’s totally free to join!), teleport to the shop and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Island Girl

Island Girl

Ripley and I returned to The Free Dove to search for the perfect finishing touch, and spotted just the right earrings at the Rebel Hope display.  The Island Girl baubles come in either the tan option that I am wearing in my photo or a green version.  The beads are the same; it’s just the cording that is different.  Speaking of the beads, it’s almost like they were made to coordinate with my new dress!  Blue-green glass beads sit atop round brownish ones decorated with white blossoms, which echo the pattern on the mini.  Best of all, these earrings are also free.  You just need to be a member of The Free Dove group (which is also free to join).

Until my next post, happy shopping!
