Black Heart

Black Heart

Good evening, Fab Readers. If you ever wonder what the bloggers here on ‘the Fab’ go through for you… wonder no more. I have braved the Valentines Day Shop & Hop for you.  I may be seeing pink and my ears ringing with love songs for days. But there was men’s wear to be had… so I prevailed. 😉

I found a very unusual shirt as the free gift for Reinvent and ended up rather liking it. This is the “Black Heart long sleeve” and yes… it’s sheer. Good thing I was at the gym earlier. The heart shape on the chest reads “Black Black Heart” and it may accurately describe how a lot of people feel about this holiday. The shirt is very well made and the details are spot on. Be sure to stick around and check out the Reinvent booth… there are some very nice things for sale.

The Valentines Day Shop & Hop runs until Feb. 15th so don’t delay.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Good evening FabFree! I hope the first day of 2022 has come and gone by with nothing but good stuff for you. Gabe and I started our 2022 much like we started 2021: with coffee first and nonsense after. ( Or during thanks to Dixie) So much happened in 2021… and 2020 , I know it’s left us with some hard feelings. But I made a promise to myself and my little family here. I will not lose hope for better things and try to be one of those better things for the people n my life.

So HAPPY NEW YEAR my FabFree Family! Gabe and I wish you all every blessing and every happiness in this year stretching out before us.

Holiday Prep

Holiday Prep

Good morning, FabFree. I could not think of a better way to start the day, or the week in this case, than another men’s prize for the FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt. While you still have until the 30th of the month to gather up your prizes, we are coming down to the wire. So let’s not waste time and get right to it.

NoShot is a designer I was unfamiliar with before the Hunt and I am pleased to have been introduced. Their shop is filled with some very nice designs for both men and women. In fact, they have provided  hunt prizes for the ladies too.  The men’s prizes are the new unique sweater and the low cowboy boots I’m showing here. And I am certainly very happy to add both to my closet. Especially since the sweater is only 1L and the boots are free!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Fitmesh
  • Signature
  • SLink

Boots are unrigged and modifiable.

After Hours

After Hours

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. As you all must know by now FabFree’s own Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt is well underway. You might be thinking it’s just for the ladies however there are quite a few very nice men’s prizes worth Hunting down as well. So let’s take a look, shall we?

My very comfortable and warm new sweater is from Madcat Creations Boutique. This is the “Falling Leaves” sweater and it is indeed the color of the season’s leaves. Perfect for a night out or a casual stroll in the changing colors of Autumn. It can be yours for 5L and a little time spent hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake

Good afternoon, FabFree Readers. 

I don’t think Dixie is taking this seriously. She just looks at me with those big puppy dog eyes and I can’t be mad at her. But if Juli finds one more pair of shoes chewed to pieces….  we’ll both be in the dog house. Maybe I should buy her some flowers.  Juli… not Dixie. I’m pretty sure Dixie would just chew those up too.

Something Simple

Something Simple

Good evening, FabFree Readers. If your mood has been anything like Julianna’s these last few days, you’ve been running around madly trying to scoop all the gifts and prizes and shopping all day.  I do suppose that one thing about being a guy on the Grid… I can take it in a bit more relaxing attitude.  And I am all about relaxing. I did go over to BoHo Soul this weekend to pick up the very nice prize for the gentlemen for the FabFree Enchanted Hunt. So a special ‘Thank You’ to Maya for remembering us guys.

This is the ‘Enchanted Forest Men’s Hoodie’ in my favorite color : forest green. Appropriate, no? The hoodie is very well designed and fits like a dream. I truly appreciate the excellent work that obviously went into it. It’s the perfect gear for an early morning walk when you want something to take the chill off. 

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt runs until July 22nd but with awesome prizes like this… why delay?

Music on – World off

Music on - World off

Good Afternoon, FabFree. We seem to be rushing to the end of April rather quickly now. Hunts are wrapping up, events closing. But amid all the hustle, we have a brand new Group gift from Redangel for the FabFree Group. And even better, this gift is for the men of FabFree.

This is the “Music” tee from Redangel. But it is only one of five musically inclined shirts in the Fatpack you will pick up for free with your FabFree Group tag. I have been known to pick up an instrument or two and spend a cold rainy day just fretting or getting a song onto paper.  And this is perfect gear for a day like that.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink Male

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)

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Geanni
  • SLink Male

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.

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.
