my mother told me son let it be

Good evening, Fab Readers.  Finding good quality men’s wear and accessories here on the Grid is often a trial and can be very frustrating. Honestly, I think if I have to see one more hoodie… Never mind, I digress. When the morass of “not affordable” or “mundane” men’s wear gets me down, I retreat to my stand by favorites. Places with quality work and generous groups. One such place is R&R Swag. They can always be counted on for excellent group gifts and other affordable options. Plus, the designers are rather charming and very friendly.

I found recently that the prizes on the Lucky Chairs in the main store have been updated and I was delighted to see that my initial had popped up as well. I didn’t hesitate to grab this full outfit ; The Blade Biker Outfit. The complete outfit includes the jacket, with and without the tee shirt, the jeans and the boots. All impeccably built and perfect for casual days or nights. The outfit is designer exclusively for the Signature Gianni but I found it looked just as smashing on my Belleza Jake. As Julianna would say, “Your mileage may vary.” Even if this look doesn’t suit you, R&R Swag has many other past group gifts available as well as other outfits loaded into the Lucky Chairs. The Group is free to join as well.

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree. As I am sure you are aware, the weekend is upon us and I for one am quite glad to see it’s arrival. Not only does the weekend bring some well deserved rest and relaxation, it brings a slew of sales and events with it. And the men haven’t been excluded today.

For example, Finer Threads is participating in the Happy Weekend Sale and are offering this refreshing change from the morass of sweats and snapbacks. This is the “Asher” suit in black and it was a mere 60L as part of the sale. The set is all one piece however you as receive a HUD to change the color of the suit jacket and inner shirt.  I found a bit of mixing and matching fit me well today with shades of black and blue. The Asher comes in several other colors all for the same 60L price if the black doesn’t suit your taste. And since the sale is a “Weekend” offering, I imagine that Asher will go back to the rack for it’s regular price on Sunday evening. So make some haste if you want to pick it up for this special sale.

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.

Over the fields of snow

Over the fields of snow

Is there any way to better relax during a joyful but stressful time than to spend time with your horse? I don’t think so and neither does Ingamar! So we headed out to explore the frosty world this morning with bells on.  Literally!

If you are like me and have a herd of Teegle horses or you are the Teegle horse, you are going to want to get over to the Teegle main store and find the huge Christmas tree full of free gifts. There are a ton of gorgeous coats and accessories to be had.

I picked this lovely gray coat from Impostable for Ingamar today. The dapples are little snowflakes! The free applier comes with the coat, hooves and the mane and tail as well as beautiful blue eyes. Which you can’t see under his forelock.

Our literal bells are from the so very talented designer En Pointe. This is the free “Jingle Collar” and it will fit all breeds of Teeglepet horses. It even comes with an add on for jingle sounds as you ride! It also comes with a HUD to change the color of both bells and collar.

My new tack is also from the Christmas tree. This is the free “Holiday Plaid Tack” from Teegle. You’ll get a set for each breed except the Skeleton, and a HUD for six plaid fabrics and six solid colors for the bridle. Plus a tint application for allll the colors.

Last but certainly not least, I needed something cozy and spiffy looking since Ingamar looks so nice. So I popped over to Carol’s Store and picked up the Christmas free group gift. This is the “Winter Dress” and it’s yours for free with your Carol’s free to join group. I know I’m wearing it as a long tunic sweater but it is long enough to wear as a modest short dress. So yay for double duty!

One of the things I’ve been missing in RL is the whole going shopping, then stopping off at a café after to mull over the things I’ve bought with a nice hot drink.  I have been avoiding all the locations of RL that involve humans, and for that reason I am very very very thankful that Second Life exists.  I can live out my shopping traditions, and there are no heavy bags to carry!  Woohoo!

Santa!

Vanilla Bae have got some amaaaazing lucky boards right now, all with their signature strippable clothing as prizes!  When you’re in the store, you’ll find several Santas sitting underneath each lucky board, which made me giggle for quite a while as I waited for my letter to come up.  I was lucky enough to win this super adorable romper – isn’t it sweet?  As mentioned, it is strippable – which means you can give access to people so they can remove the clothing from you.  If that’s totally not your thang, don’t worry – there’s a PG version in the box as well.  To grab this cute prize (as well as the other really really lovely ones), just join the Vanilla Bae group for 50L and then wait for your letter to come up!  Grab some friends and take your photo with the multiple Santas while you’re at it!  Oh, and don’t forget the other amazing group gifts – totally worth the 50L join fee!

Oh Yes!

There have been some really nice free hair gifts floating around recently, and I’m super excited about this really lovely style from Exile!  It’s cropped and half up, and comes in a full fatpack of colours.  You can’t say no to that, right?  Even better, the group is free to join, making this really versatile look completely free!  Just click on the vendor with your tag active and it’s all yours!

Biscuit time!

Hello, my FabFree Dears! As I said Monday, this month is all Christmas all the time! And now I’m dragging Gabriel into it. But dang, doesn’t he look good in that suit? Nothing like a handsome man in a handsome suit. (He’s rolling his eyes at me)   At any rate, Gabe and I stopped over at R&R Swag and found this gorgeous set of his and hers Group Gifts. Both gifts include shoes and the ladies stunning gown includes the complete jewelry set as well. Now, we’re both ready for the Holiday Parties to get rolling.

R&R Swag is one of those awesome designers you can always count on for loads of past group gifts, lucky chairs and both men’s and ladies current gifts. Plus, the group is free to join. And of course, the quality is excellent. What more could you ask for?  Now go grab these and get all spiffied up!

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

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

Flying Monkeys and Cute Fall Outfits

coming soon

Hey gang!

Both real life and second life feel like they are pulling me in ten directions each. Literally, I feel like the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. Remember when the flying monkeys pulled him apart and threw him all over the place? Well right now both lives are my flying monkeys. Anyone got any flying monkey spray handy? (and how many times can I say flying monkeys in one post, eh?)

Whimsical Delights

At least I snuck in a little bit of time to wander the magical pathways of the Secret Garden Event. Alas my friends, I spent far more than was wise, but there were so so many whimsical delights waving to me from those Nextup machines. Saying “I’m next, look how wonderful I am, you know you must bring me home!” Well, who am I to argue?

So I put on this cute outfit from the MOoH! nextup and headed out for a walk. I’ve got the key for you below so you can see the entire batch of goodies. I wanted to wear the knee socks but for the life of me I could not figure out my layers in my mesh body. Sometimes I can get them to work and sometimes, well, let’s just say it ain’t pretty. So my apologies to Dalraida over at MOoH!

This outfit fits maitreya only but it comes with everything, even the hat (you have to get each item in the machine though and mix and match them). I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and since I am homeless at the moment, I’ve been traveling around in this and had several compliments as well as people asking me where I got the outfit.  It’s 50L per sale and there’s also a copy/mod fatpack at a discount.

More soon gang!  Hope you are staying toasty warm where ever in the world you are!

Good morning, Fabulous Readers. I have quit the find for the men of FabFree today. And it’s definitely in the spirit of the season. I felt rather festive when I agreed to meet friends at a local watering hole. But when I got there… something was off. And this skinny guy sitting next to me… very odd vibes…

At least my new Halloween outfit was appropriate for the evening. FKD has supplied a generous full pack of shirts and a pair of cobweb printed jeans. Everything fits perfectly and the details of the design are spot on. Perfect for a casual party or just seasonal wanders around the Grid. Since you can’t see the design in the picture, I’ve included a quick snapshot.

Just click the pumpkin at the front of the store sitting on the table advertising the “Pinky Pie Spooky Walk”. If you have a minute, the spooky walk is worth your time with several men’s outfits for a sale price of 25L. 

One note of caution. When you unpack the gift, the box is completely transparent. It took me a minute to figure out that I had a ‘ghost” box rather than a glitch.
