Autumnal

Autumnal

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.

Definite Style

The November issue of L’Homme Magazine is on the stands now. Along with excellent fashions and photography, with it comes free gifts for the readers. Just tap any of the signs and join the group for free.

Bakaboo

Bakaboo is quickly becoming a favorite designer for me. Not only is the quality of the build stunning, the style is on point. I look forward to their gift each month because I know it will be something extraordinary and not another hoodie or ball cap. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good hoodie as much as the next guy but I like something different now and then. And Bakaboo is the go to for stylish you-don’t-see-this-everyday fashions.

November

November

November makes me feel.. quiet. Thoughtful. Maybe even a bit melancholy. Or maybe I need to listen to Juli and get back to work.  **Thinks about it for a minute**  Nah…

In the Army

I have no idea how long this great army shirt and undershirt will be available from Hoorenbeek. So if you want it go grab it soon. The ‘Army Shirt’ can be worn with and without the undershirt. It also comes with a HUD to change the color of the undershirt to one of twelve choices. The shirt combo is for Group Members only but the Group is FREE to join so don’t let that stop you.

Austin in the Fall

Austin in the Fall

It’s  good day here on the Grid to just wander some of the spectacular Autumn Sims.  Fall is my favorite season and I mean to enjoy it.

Perfect for Crisp Days

I found a new-to-me designer while Hunting down Dirty Little Secrets: Nuts Inc where they encourage us to “Have the guts to wear Nuts”.  This is the ‘Austin’ Denim jacket and tee and it’s on the 25L path for the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt. There is also a ladies prize that perfect compliments this jacket. The jacket comes with a HUD for six colors of denim and eighteen colors/patterns of tee shirt.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh XS – XL

Now, I’m going to finish my walk then see if Juli left any of the chocolate from her and the dogs trick or treating. 😉

A Fine Fall Camp Out

Fine Fall

As y’all may know, I’ve been on ( and off ) the grid for a loooong time now. Hush, now and listen to me ya whippersnappers! *Threatens you with her cane*  ANYWAY, a bunch of things have come and gone in SL. Remember sparkle bling and shoes with heel clompy sounds? Yeah, good riddance. But one thing I haven’t seen in a long time and kinda missed was camping chairs. They used to be everywhere, now, not so much.  So imagine my surprise when I saw a pair of them over at WellMade!

Hello There Camping Chairs

I went to my new new-to-me designer to peruse the lucky boards ( They’re awesome btw) and saw the camping chairs. And one of the prizes was this super cute casual Yumi pullover. I quickly took a seat and 30 minutes later it was mine. Yumi comes with a HUD for eight colors so I bet there’s one that’ll be your favorite.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • FitMesh XS-XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • TMP

We’re Members Just for Today

When in Doubt, Wear Red

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a fantastic Saturday.  In RL, Ripley and I spent some time at a home show today, dreaming about renovations and all the things we can’t afford to do to our house.  So, when we got home, we popped onto SL and found a bunch of free gifts over at The Seasons Story.  I’m so glad there are such generous designers in SL!

Go Red!

Although I enjoy chatting and being around other people, I do have to admit there are those days when I just want to quietly take a walk with my pal and shut out the rest of the world.  The free sweatshirt that I picked up at the Moonstone display at The Season’s Story makes this abundantly clear with its printed message about the Anti Social Club.  This over sized hoodie is perfect for a brisk fall day spent exploring nature.  I really like the casual style and the bright crimson color.  The only quirky thing was the top forces you to have one hand in your pocket, which meant I needed to alpha out one of my hands.  On my Maitreya body, I could only alpha out both hands, so I dusted off the Slink hands I had in my inventory, and popped on the right one.  Problem solved!  Since the text on the top and the stripes on the sleeve are white, I decided to pair my new sweatshirt with white pants, but I think it would look great with denim as well.  The free gift package contains only one version – Maitreya – so if you have a different mesh body, this may not work for you.  However, since the gift is completely free, it may be worth a shot to pick it up and try – you might get lucky!  You have to be a member of The Seasons Story Event group to receive the gift, but there is no join fee, so I’d say give it a go!

I’m off to try on some of the other Fabulous Finds I scooped up at The Season’s Story.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Nevermore

Nevermore

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—

The Raven

~ Edgar Allen Poe

Nothing like a Great Suit

It’s no question I love a good suit. In my opinion, it’s the ultimate attire of the true gentleman. And this suit? Perfection. This is “Whisper Lenore” from Sparrow By Design for the “Quoth the raven. Nevermore” Hunt. The fabric has almost a burn out velvet look that is amazing. I highly recommend taking the time to hunt down this suit. And Ladies, SBD has put out a lovely dark gown for you as well. Don’t miss it.

Size Included

Mesh sizes XS – XL

 

Cheers,

Seasonal

Seasonal

So, Readers,  I didn’t make it back to the beach. But I did find a more ‘seasonal’ place to hang out for a bit. Nothing like shirking work in an Autumnal SIM.  Of course… it is haunted. But nothing’s perfect.

Making the Summit

I did run across a great Hunt while avoiding Juli. The Psycho Pumpkin Hunt from Gossip!Hunts is a 1L hunt with Female, Male and Unisex prizes running until October 27th. I picked up this shirt, ‘Summit’,  from Horr Men’s Wear as their Hunt prize. Just look for the black and orange frosted cupcake and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • Standard Mesh XS – XL
  • TMP

 

Maybe I can find a few more Hunts before Juli tracks me down.

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

Hiding Out

Hiding Out

Dear Readers,

And why am I hiding out in a smoky bar instead of … socializing on the beach with bikini clad ladies?  Because someone told Juli I was slacking. **Looks pointedly at Izzy** But…

It’s not all bad.

I have my adult beverage of choice, some tobacco products and a smooth new shirt to enjoy them in.  This is the ‘Tygren Shirt’ from Sweet Intoxication and it’s the men’s gift in the 40 Hunt celebrating Crissy Sparrowtree’s fortieth birthday.  There are prizes for both men and women and unisex or home goods as well. Just look for the confetti filled balloons.

Sizes Included

  • Standard Mesh S M L
  • Adam
  • Aestheti
  • Geralt
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • TMP

 

Maybe Juli will get tired of stalking me and I can get back to the beach. *eye roll*

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

Greetings from Little Havana

Greetings From Little Havana

Dear Readers,

I hope this missive finds you all well and enjoying the last days of the Summer season. Julianna has informed me that she is once again working for your Blogging team and her emails are fill to the brim with her typical giddiness. I don’t know when I’ll return to work as I am off on a walk about on the Grid. Don’t tell Juli. I found this prim seaside town recently and I’m staying a few days. Maybe do a little surfing. If you like old world, vintage charm I urge you to visit here in Little Havana.

Dress for the Occasion

Even if the occasion is a casual afternoon sight seeing. I found this well worn Tee at one of my favorite stops: Cold Ash.  The Montana Tee … yes, I know it says California on it, but it’s the Montana Tee is the latest Group Gift from Cold Ash and it’s free. Even the Group is free to join.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Avi
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

Now, I believe I’m going to test out those waves. Maybe see if the girls in the bikinis are playing volley ball yet…

Cheers,

Gabriel St.James
