Something about Spring

Something about Spring

Hey there, FabFree. Are you into the Spring season yet? I know some of our readers are actually going into Autumn so all of our Spring weather ramblings must sound sorta out of place. But… ya gotta grow where you’re planted and right now that means Spring in all it’s glory.

The Grid is celebrating Spring with a ton of Spring themed Hunts. Today’s hunt included a very nice men’s shirt and jeans so I grabbed my Gabriel and off we went. The Hop Along Hunt was a fun quick Hunt over at MystRie and it netted us both these snazzy Spring outfits.

My maxi dress, “Softly Spring’ is a lovely wash of watercolors with pale pinks and a floral pattern. It looks like something I’d have in my real life closet! Beautifully made, it’s the perfect addition to my SL closet. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – S – L
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Gabriel’s knit sweater over a dark gray collared shirt is just different enough to be eye catching. And I love the pale lavender color. Who says guys can’t wear pastel? The prize includes a pair of jeans as well (Not Shown)

What Dreams May Come

What Dreams May Come

Hello again, FabFree. As I am sure you may have seen, we have had several new designers join our growing ranks of Fabulous Designers for the FabFree Group. It’s always exciting to welcome new talent and when one such new designers has gifts for the men… it’s doubly exciting.

Which brings us to Dreams. While Dreams is not exclusively male clothing it does a very nice selection of well made items. Simply head upstairs to the men’s department and browse.  Their Group is free to join as well and there are group gifts for both men and women.  The “Uriel” shirt I’m sporting today is the gift for the FabFree Group so it’s yours for the asking once you join up. Which is, of course… free.  Be aware, the vender will ask for 1L and immediately refund it. Uriel comes with a HUD for six colors and while the store logo is embroidered on the chest… it’s subtle and not distracting.  I highly recommend taking a moment to explore this newest FabFree designer.

Wearin’ O The Green

Wearin' O The Green

‘Afternoon, FabFree. I hope you are all getting around and picking up the plentiful pries from the FabFree St. Paddy’s Day Hunt. Today is the last day to do so! But it’s worth the rush! I had to pack a couple of designers into my post today because I don’t want to miss a thing.

First up is the complete outfit from Nuts Inc. The “Jim set” comes in two prize boxes, one with the sweater and one with the jeans and sneakers, each for just 3L. The delightful Ms. Lea Supermarine did tell me that she was generously going to leave the prizes out for a day or two longer to make sure everyone had a chance to pick them up. Thanks, Lea! And you don’t want to miss this set. Just the jeans are a solid build that I can see wearing quite a bit of year round. And the sneakers go with several things in my casual closet.

Next are the two short sleeved tees from Redangel. This was a new to me designer and I’m rather pleased to have “discovered” them. Take a turn around the shop when you go pick up these tees. I particularly like the ‘sanitized’ one.

Lastly, is my new wall decor from Earthworkx. The “Lucky Tiles” are meant for St. Pat’s day but I like them enough to keep them up year round. Juli and I play a lot of Scrabble and I usually win. Elves can’t spell… 😉

Don’t forget… today is your last day to grab these prizes and get lucky!

The Rogue

The Rogue

Good afternoon, FabReaders. In bit of a hurry here. Once again I find myself in adventures way. A lost temple, a treasure to be taken… a monster to be slain. It’s a rogue’s life. And I have no one to blame but myself. 😉

I was innocently on the FabFree St. Paddy’s Day Hunt when I unpacked this prefect adventurer’s coat from Amazing Creations and just like that, I was sword in hand and stalking monsters. The coat come with a hood and a no hood version and a HUD to customize the colors. I stuck with the black and gray to melt into the shadows.  Amazing Creations also offers a ladies gift for the FabFree Hunt… but I digress.  Did you hear that? Something… slithery…?  I must be closing in on the secret of this evil temple!

The Privateer

The Privateer

Good afternoon, FabFree.  One of my absolute favorite Hunts has come ’round again: The Steam Hunt. This year’s theme is Steampunk Pirates which only increased my enthusiasm as I often consider myself something of a … well, pirate is such a negatively charged word. Let’s say ‘privateer’ instead.  With that in mind, I headed over to the local pub for a drop of ale. Or should I say grog.

The latest staple for my adventuring wardrobe is from Contraption and its free for the Steam Hunt. As with everything I have encountered from Contraption the ‘Atreus Frock coat’ is a stunning build. Every detail is perfection. I anticipate wearing this quite often.

The Steam Hunt has over 90 ports of call for the intrepid hunter but you only have until the 28th of March to hoist the black flag and set sail.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Freya

Tuesday Break

Tuesday Break

In the midst of some very nice ladies RPG wear and somewhat naughty Club wear… 25L Tuesday has a little something for the men of Second Life. Munereia has supplied a very casual… Sunday afternoon look for the men today.  ‘Satra’ is a complete outfit with both the pants and the two-in-one top and comes with two HUDs to change the color of the inner shirt, the outer cardigan and the pants. The HUDs each contain twenty colors to choose from. The colors are very washed out and faded adding to the comfortable look.

25L Tuesday requires no group to pick up the special sales and you can easily see what’s included at their website.

Suited

Suited

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. My post today is going to interest our newer members of the Grid because the more experienced among us have surely already taken full advantage of my finds today. I’m speaking of the 1L Shop at Gabriel. Of course, I am a frequent shopper at Gabriel… it’s something abut the name….  At any rate, I wandered to the back of the main store today to see the newly added 50% Discount area. Excellent deals there, by the way… just none I can show on here for75L or less. However, the 1L shop is a delight. The stock is clearly being rotated through and most of what I found was completely new on the 1L shelves.  Like this stunning pinstripe suit I picked out. I do love a good suit. I’ve said it before : Boys have swagger, Men have character… Gentlemen have style.

Also, before I go, I want to offer a hearty welcome to Mr. Korday. Its good to have another gentleman in the mix. Cheers!

Sizes Included

  • One size + Alpha if needed

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

There is a free hunt at Wonderland Beach in celebration of Mardi Gras– but you have to hurry, the hunt ends on the 17th.  Luckily, the gifts for the Love and Camouflage Hunt are pretty easy to find.  All you have to do is look for the Mardi Gras mask in the shops on the sim to find your gifts.  I found this great cami dress from TrendZy Apparel with a star pattern.  It also came with a pair of heels.  I am not wearing them because I wanted to show off these cute ankle boots I found on the hunt from Grumble.  I loved the rainbow hearts– which happened to match well with another hunt gift, the bangle bracelets from SugarBaker.

As I mentioned earlier, this terrific hunt ends on February 17th.  So you will have to hurry to snatch up these great gifts.

Heart Attack and Vine

Heart Attack and Vine
February is approaching and Valentines (and Anti-Valentines) themed hunts are just around the corner.  I’ve been to a few different hunts on Windstruck over the past few months and I’ve always been impressed by how pretty the sim is and how nicely the hunts are set up. The Lost Hearts Hunt is no different.  The terrific free hunt gifts range from clothing to home decor.  Most of the clothing items are either unisex or there are corresponding male and female avatar outfits hidden separately.  The hearts are in plain sight, so no need to break out your magnifying glass and search in hard to see places.  I found plenty of great free gifts on the hunt, but my favorite had to be the Gothic Vine Gown.  It is a gorgeous strapless dress with a slit on the side.

The Lost Hearts Hunt runs until February 20th, so check out these wonderful gifts before the hunt comes to an end.

Gray

Gray

Good evening, Fabulous Readers. Like Julianna said earlier, today is 25L Tuesday and there are a ton of good deals and great items. I was pleasantly surprised to se several things for us male types.  So, let’s get on with the details.

This is the “Tribus” shirt from Muneriea. It comes with a huge HUD for a choice of twenty colors. The shirt come with a matching pair of trousers. ( Not shown ) The HUD allows you to pick one of twenty colors for those as well. All in all, a good deal for just 25L.

Again as Julianna said, some merchants leave their 25L Tuesday selections up for Tuesday and beyond. But don’t count on it if you need to add this set to your wardrobe.
