What Goes Around, Comes Around!

whc lyrcoldash pic

I never intended it to happen, but do you have an article of clothing that you rely on as a “go to” item, one that absolutely refuses to age? I do! And, later in this post, we are going to celebrate its one-year anniversary in my wardrobe. First though, check out what I found last night! I went by a store named Cold Ash, which specializes in fantastically detailed, rugged-looking men’s clothing. I found this vintage style T-shirt as their FREE Group Gift! The Mesh Austin Tee in STEEL BLUE is a fine representation of the quality that goes into the clothing that Cold Ash makes. Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for T-Shirts that look soft and well-worn, and this ribbed cotton T-shirt hangs beautifully with soft, realistic folds. It’s like it was never meant to be taken off. In the FREE Group Gift, you get 3 sizes and an additional 2 sizes in fitmesh, so getting a good fit won’t be any problem. Stop by Cold Ash, this is a must pick up! The pants I chose to wear with it are the current FREE Group Gift from Lavarock, likely my favorite male clothing store on Second Life. They are the Destroy Male Jeans and are probably one of the grungiest items in my wardrobe. I love the texture on them. Honestly, if I ever move to Seattle to pursue my dreams of alt-rock super stardom, these are the jeans I am going to wear! They come in 2 styles, with five sizes of each included in the gift. The only problem is they have been out for quite a while, and at the moment I am unable to say how much longer they will remain available. If you like them in the picture, go get them immediately. I suspect they may not be available much longer. The last item in the Cold Ash inspired outfit is the cap, which was just one of those lucky finds you sometimes run across accidentally. It is a 1L hunt prize from a hunt which is sadly already over. Luckily, the owner of Ashmoot forgot to pick up the hunt prize! It’s only 1L and the cap matches the T-shirt wonderfully. Sadly I can’t recall the name of the hunt, but you are looking for a hunt object shaped like a mask called “P-H Hunt # 8″. Look for it where you find the daily prize boards. Kristabel Ashmoot promises me she will leave it out until the end of the month so we all have a chance to grab it (a VERY sweet thing to do for us). Be sure to pick it up before it’s too late!

I teased you that as I write this I am celebrating an anniversary of sorts, and I have Lyrieal’s Boutique to thank for it. I recently attended “Just For Him”, a cart sale like event with a 1L mini-hunt where I found this great leather jacket! It comes from Lyrieal’s Boutique and is their Just For Him Hunt Prize. It has a hud that allows you to choose 5 different colors in both the leather and the lining. For a single linden, that’s great value. The event is not a large one, but I should have known Lyrieal’s Boutique would have something special out. This brings me to the anniversary: I was dying to show you this jacket and was having trouble finding just the right pants to present it with, so I decided to go with my “go to” grey system jeans and Mesh boots, tinting the jeans a bit darker to match. After doing the picture, I began putting together this post, and found I had reason to smile. Those beloved jeans and boots of mine are from a hunt one year ago today…and were previously blogged here by a young guest blogger. Coincidentally, they also came from Lyrieal’s Boutique! So, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their posting in Fab Free, the In The Pink outfit has been added to the 1L hunt prize, making it even better. It is a great looking outfit and the jeans are tintable to match a wide range of grays, so they are super handy to have around. Even the boots are nice, you can’t beat this value. I had originally planned to end my post here, and call it a night, but once I get going I am hard to stop. So in the spirit of “You really should check out the Just For Him sales event”, here is a final addition to my post below!

whc cold ash beach 1_001

While I was at the sale, I noticed a pair of shorts on the back wall of the booth belonging to the store Trashed. Just like the other coincidences this week (the hat which looked great with the T-shirt that was accidentally left out, and the nice jeans I decided to wear being posted to fab free exactly one year ago today) these denim shorts look like they were made to go with the Cold Ash T-Shirt I picked up this week. The Trashed Men’s denim shorts in plaid are not free, but this is a sale event as well as a hunt and these shorts look really great. If you love that T-shirt as much as I do, that is reason enough to pony up the extra 85L for these shorts to go with them. They make a fantastic pair together. Once again, I have worked late into the evening and I must go, but this has been a post full of pleasant surprises. Until next time my friends, see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

She’s Gone Batty

Batty1

Hello Fab Free’rs! Hopefully everyone had a good weekend and is now fully recovered from Monday! lol
I’m super excited about this little hunt I stumbled across the other day, it’s the Gone Batty Hunt. The fact that I’m fairly certain I went “batty” a long time ago aside, I also happen to adore bats! I have no idea why, I don’t have a cute story to explain it, or any other reason that I am aware of. I just love them! So if you’re like me and either really like bats, or have an affinity for the kawaii and creepy, this dollarbie hunt is just the thing for you. Also, I got in on the tail end of this hunt, it ends May 22, so don’t wait!

The Gone Batty Hunt is a sim-based hunt taking place at the “Spooky Cute” event location. The stores participating in the hunt will have a sign about the hunt either right outside their store, or visible just inside. Not all the stores are participating. Each hunt prize is 1 linden. You’ll be looking for a glowing purple disc with a black bat in the center. Happy Hunting!!

So first, I think this kinda retro looking dress with the cute tie at the neck is so adorable! It is the GBH prize by KRAVE. The dress is fully mesh and comes in standard mesh sizing. The adorable mouth-chain Pru is wearing is also a dollarbie GBH prize, this one by ClarityMoon. I love the cute little bat paired with a dark moon and stars. Next, is this fun mani/pedi from Tori-tastic. I really like this color combo with a bat motif, it’s hard to do bats and not look like Halloween. This “bat-tastic” polish is meant for Slink nails.

Batty 2

There is another super cute dress to be had on the GBH, this one is by Black Moon. I really like the style of this dress with the suspender style straps over a t-shirt-like top. I especially like the classic  bats flying across the moon imagery. This dress is also just 1 linden and comes in standard mesh sizes. I think these bat friends might be the very definition of “creepy cute”! They are the GBH prize by Mumuhime Clothing. These cute bats are attachments, and some have a hold pose. They are also pretty cute just kinda standing around.

Batty 3

So I’m considering making this cute over-sized sweatshirt my go-to shirt for those jeans and sneakers kind of days! This cute shirt is the GBH prize by Facepalm. It also comes in standard mesh sizes, though it’s mean to look big, and it has a matching alpha layer. The super fun hat Pru has on is yet another GBH prize, and it too is just 1 linden. This hat by Gachapon! has re-size scripts, and includes a color-change hud. Now hurry on over to the Spooky Cute location and Happy Hunting!

Here are the details, Enjoy!!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Sign Rock & Cute Brii HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, May 19.

The latest store hunt at Brii is topping the chart this week. It’s the Rock & Cute Hunt. Sorry guys, Brii is just for the gals, but it’s usually some pretty great stuff. It’s a L$1 hunt by the way.

For the guys, there’s Just For Him, a fair and sim hunt that just started yesterday. I haven’t checked it out yet, but I plan to.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Bohemian Ballerina

Boho

I’m not sure what to call this look, I think I’ll go with Bohemian Ballerina. This pretty floral top is the FREE May subscribo gift at ViVi. It comes in  regular system layers and includes several appliers. I thought it was really sweet and pretty on. Initially I thought about putting on a cute pair of blue-jean shorts and some summery sandals, but I came across this dainty mini skirt on the Marketplace, and went with it. I think the end result turned out well! The skirt is by Lamp*Light and includes a color change hud to change the skirt from white to blue, pink, or black. Considering this fully mesh skirt is just 1 linden, it’s well worth the effort even though it does not come with an alpha layer.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A ViSion in Lumae

ViSion Lumae

It’s the weekend, it’s the weekend, it’s the weekend!!!

Okay now that I got that out of my system, I’ve got some loveliness to share with you. For starters, this beautiful skin from Lumae. So this lovely skin with the pretty purple eye shadow, and soft pink lip-color is available at Lumae for just 75 lindens per tone. Each tone includes a freckled version and a non-freckled version, cleavage options, brow options, as well as appliers for everything. No seriously, everything. The list of appliers included is Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hands & Feet, AMD Baby Bump, Omega (regular & petite), TMP Body & Head, Lelutka Head, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Sweet Lips, and Kissers. In addition, you’ll find two shapes in the box, one of which is ready-made to be worn with a Loud Mouth attachment. Do not miss out on this fabulous Lumae deal!

Next is this cute and a bit daring semi-sheer top from ViSion. This top is a FREE group gift at the ViSion store, the ViSion group is FREE to join as well. Also, there are about ten group gifts out at ViSion, most of which are sexy tops and lingerie. Not interested in something quite so sheer? I think this would be just as sexy with a solid colored bra or tank top under it. This gift top comes in regular system layers, and has appliers for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza, Omega, and TMP. Most of the gifts include appliers of some kind, some are even geared toward more curvy mesh parts and include Lolas and Azz appliers. Go, check out the ViSion store, and grab some sexy FREE gifts while you’re there.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Free Dove Hunt – Part 2

Free Dove Hunt 2

I can’t believe this long week is almost coming to an end! Haha Thankfully the May Mini Hunt at Free Dove  lasts all month, so no reason to miss out on these great hunt prizes. This second post about the Free Dove  hunt includes a few more fantastic items that I just had to show you. There are several more hunt items that I haven’t shown, but I do believe half the fun of a hunt is discovering the gifts.

Just in case you missed it, here’s a link to Part 1.

I mentioned before how cute this dress is when I showed it in another pattern in my first Free Dove  hunt post, and I still find it absolutely adorable. I love the dainty little flowers on this version. This mesh dress is a FREE hunt prize by Fission. Also by Fission are these sort of fractal patterned leggings. I could see wearing these mesh pants with a cute solid colored tank or a big comfy sweater. Again these are a FREE hunt prize at Free Dove. Next, you may remember that chunky ring by Masoom shown in my first Free Dove hunt post, well these equally chunky and equally fun bangles are another FREE hunt prize. These bright bangles kinda remind me of the 80s when neon was so very in, which makes them even cooler ’cause they’re “retro”! Last, I think these black and blue plaid pumps are my absolute favorite of the Free Dove hunt prizes. They are also by Fission, and are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. I think they have a great vintage look, and are just darling on!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!!
