A Rose in the Garden

A Rose in the Garden

After all the excitement of getting wayyyy lost and finding my way back home… I thought maybe I should stay in the back garden for a while. So I’m getting comfy and entertaining the cat this afternoon. And what’s more comfy than a soft baby tee and shorts and an old pair of sneakers?

Traveling Around the Grid With My Pal

I've Got the Blues

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  When I saw all the great prizes Love has been discovering on the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt (HERE and HERE), I knew it was time to fit Ripley up with his tracking harness and hit the trail myself.  Our first stop was at one of my favorite stores, Horr Menswear.  It took some time and effort, as well as the motivation of some crunchy Ripley Snacks, but soon enough, we discovered the cheerful yellow and red hot air balloon (and by “we” I mean “he” – thank you, pal).  For just 1 Linden dollar (and the cost of a batch of biscuits), I added a great looking top to my wardrobe.

I’ve Got The Blues

Well, not really.  How could I be blue with a great shirt like this?  Featuring realistic folds and a button down v-neck, this shirt is perfect for a gray summer day with a bit of drizzle in the air.  Its three quarter length sleeves provide that added extra protection from the elements when you need it, but aren’t so long you are over heating when the sun finds its way through the clouds again.  Sometimes I have a hard time finding shirts that don’t clip at the waist and allow my pants to poke through, but the fit of the Summit Shirt was ideal.  I really like the turned down collar and the added trim at the waist and cuffs – they add just the right finishing touch.  Best of all, this bluesy top can be yours just one little Linden dollar.  Hey if you’re lucky, you won’t have to provide a tray of Ripley snacks either 🙂

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink

Until next time, happy hunting!

As you may have guessed, I prefer the more classic looks to the casual. And I have to say this lovely set from Shhh! It’s a Secret suits me very well indeed. This is the set and it’s the 1L prize for the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt. Each piece is a separate item with the appropriate alpha layers. Even the loosened tie is wearable as it’s own item. Included in the prize are the shirt, the trousers, the vest and the tie. The Shirt, Vest and trousers come in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL.  Even the tie comes in several sizes to get a proper fit.

The Around the Grid in 80 Days hunt doesn’t end until September 30 so you have ample time to gather up as many prizes as you can hunt down.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture
