Heartbreaker

Heartbreaker

House of Ruby has out a new line of T-shirts for men and they are real heartbreakers in the making… you can get one in the color blue for the promo price of just 56L off the Marketplace. The shirt comes in system layers as well as Slink and Omega Appliers for mesh bodies.

I did some checking around and paired the colorful T-shirt with facepaint which I found as a past group gift at Zibska. In fact there is an entire wall out of past group gifts that include make up, jewelry, and more. The group is 200L to join, but it’s a one time fee, and after joining, you’ll be able to fill your inventory with lots of boxes to open. The Marsh face paint comes in a full fatpack of 7 colors and you’ll get system layers as well as and Omega applier for mesh heads.

I tossed on an oldie but goodie to finish off the look… Wicca’s Wardrobe is another group that leaves out their past group gifts for customers to enjoy. I’ve blogged these Ares pants before but it’s worth mentioning that for your 50L join fee at Wicca’s Wardrobe you’ll gain access to many past group gifts for both men and women… like these excellent quality pants.

Just the Highlights

High Lights

For a limited time, Paisley Daisy has lowered their group join to only 10L so you can pick up their group gifts at a bargain. The August and September group gifts are both out. I’m showing you the pretty dress from August in the picture above and the September group gift is a sheer baby doll dress. The one pictured above is mesh in all the standard sizes and I felt it highlighted the last few days of nice weather… so it’s name was just perfect.

Today is also 25L Tuesday, and I was thrilled to discover beautiful shoes at Luas! These Dorothy shoes come in Slink or Maitreya fits in the box and you can get a choice of 8 colors for only 25L each. I picked up the ivory, but you may want to pick up something different… or one of each!

I finished off my flowery look with a pretty necklace I found from Clever & Cool on the marketplace. This necklace was only 10L. When I first put it on, it had some serious bling, so I was skeptical, but then I discovered that I could turn that off by typing “bling off” into local chat and ta da! No more bling! It also allows for resizing and retexturing of the flowers into many different color choices besides the pink stones shown… so your 10 little Linden gets you a lot of necklace.

Urban Native

Urban Native

I’m enjoying the last few days of not quite cold weather as the fall days allow for walks through parks without jackets. It’s that perfect weather for shorts and a shirt and the breezes are lovely even with the turning leaves.

Even if I’m an urban native… I found the perfect shirt for my outing at… none other than Native Urban. Their group is FREE to join and they have out a FREE group gift for men that you won’t want to pass up. It is this outstanding banshee shirt that includes mesh sizes for all the major men’s mesh bodies including Slink, Adam, TMP, and Aesthetic. Since it is made for mesh bodies, there is no alpha included (just as a heads up) but with some fiddling an an alpha from your inventory you might be able to make this FREE shirt work with your system body if you are still using one.

Speaking Abstractly

Speaking Abstractly

Sapphire Teebrook was away for a while due to real life illness and so the Glitterati August and September group gifts were late in coming. To thank everyone for their patience and the many well wishes she got, there are now five new gifts out at the Glitterati main-store. Three of these gifts are free to all, no group required. Two are group tag required (the August and September group gifts).

The group is 100L to join but there are about 80 past group gifts to pick up, several of which have been blogged before [HERE] and [HERE] for example.

In the picture above, Astrid is wearing two of the free to all gifts — the Julia dress in abstract with the Joyce heels. You don’t need a group to pick these up, just buy them for 0L. The dress comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh for Maitreya and Belleza. I’m not sure how long they will be out, so be sure to hurry over and pick them up.

Last month Prey had out a great pair of jeans for the men… this month they have out a duo of FREE fall mesh sweaters that you won’t want to miss out on. The group is FREE to join, and the gifts are FREE with your tag. You’ll get the sweater above in all the standard mesh sizes in both black and white. A close up look will reveal a nubby texture that is really excellent on.

There is still four more days of the Indian Summer Cart Wash Sale left for you to catch the steals and deals. Astrid showed you a pair of gorgeous ladies sandals from Roped Passion’s [HERE] but the cart also has excellent men’s sandals as well. I picked up the Larue Black Sandals for just 10L. There are several other colors out for the same low price for you gentlemen to choose from. The box includes a pair of sandals to fit men’s slink feet as well as a pair of unrigged mesh sandals that can be adjusted for other feet types.

Time and Again

Time and Again

Certain stores are good for group gifts time and again… and Prism is one of those that offers a top quality monthly group gift for both ladies and men. In case you missed them, there are several past group gifts out, even though I’m showing you the current FREE September group gift called “Jupiter.”

Jupiter is an outfit that comes with white capris pants and a sweater with a texture change hud. The sweater is white as well, but includes four grey print overlays including the timepiece texture in the picture above. You get all the standard mesh sizes.

Last month’s group gift is just as nice, and you’ll want to pick it up too, if you haven’t already. Gabriel showed it to you [HERE].

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

These September Days

Those September Days

There’s something about September days… they get me like nostalgia for summer but melancholy for winter and yet somehow they are some of the most incredibly beautiful days of the year. Tomorrow marks the first day of fall, but I figure today is not too early to show you some excellent clothes that will have you “fall ready.”

You’ve been seeing lots of clothes from the Indian Summer Cart Wash here on the blog, and with quality like this at the low price of 10L… it’s no wonder. And Rispetto does menswear right in this round of the event. I’m showing you two pieces you won’t want to miss. There are a couple of full outfits for just 10L on the cart, but also plenty of separates for just 10L as well. I opted to go for the separates route.

I donned the Kint Jeans for just 10L. These come in all the standard sizes and include their own alpha layer. I topped it off with the Klein Pea Coat in Smoke Tweed, again for just 10L. This too came with an alpha layer and in all the standard sizes. The coat is as well made as the jeans and is also made to fit over other shirts as I show in the picture. I topped it over a shirt from another outfit already in my inventory as an example and with excellent results.

Looking for top quality menswear at low low low prices? You’ll want to check out the Rispetto Cart before the Indian Summer Cart Wash Event is over.

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give me a great set of heels and I’ll find the perfect dress to go with it! And I fell in love with this set of strappy stilettos from G&D Italian Style which can be yours totally FREE. You just need a group space, as the group is FREE to join, and once you don the group tag, you can pick up this strappy set of burgundy heels FREE. Once you open your gift, you’ll find a set of heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

I’m still finding 10L deals at the Indian Summer Cart Wash that I just can’t resist… and this beautiful dress by Aleutia is no exception. 10L gets you a two pack… same color but two textures. You’ll get the texture shown, plus an additional dress with the all over print pattern in the box as well. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes, plus a fitmesh size to complete the package. All for just the single 10L price. There are lots of colors on the cart, so stop by even if burgundy isn’t your color… you’re bound to find a color to suit your tastes.

With the Cool Dogs

With the Cool Dogs

The Cart Sale is proving a virtual closet filler for us menfolk. I’ve picked up some great finds as I’ve previously shown you [HERE] and [HERE]. I stopped by today to check out the Ruckus Cart and again was thrilled at the offerings.

In the end, I decided on the black hoodie with striped t-shirt. This includes a hud that allows you to change the color of the striped t-shirt part, giving you six color options total including the blue I’m sporting above. The shirt comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is only 10L.

With the Cool Dogs 2

Did you notice the new skin I am sporting? This is the September gift skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins and it is a nice one. It’s not often you come across a really great skin for men geared toward those with blonde or light colored hair and I was thrilled when I saw the large array of included appliers in this gift.

The group will cost you 150L to join if you are not already a member, but this one skin gift alone will more than pay for the fee. You’ll get 4 system skins (with beard and no beard options), appliers for: slink hands and feet, omega body applier, omega face applier, tmp face applier, and two shapes which are also included as a bonus. I opted to keep my own shape, but found that the included shapes were rather nice, and they are modifiable.
