Kimono BoHo

Kimono BoHo

Are ya feeling lucky? Well… are ya?  Cause I sure am!

I was making my normal rounds today when I popped into Oubliette to check out the groups and the Lucky boards and Bingo! There was a big ol’ J on this awesome kimono and tank set! Lucky Lucky Me!

Kimono Boho

This is the ‘Midnight Velvet Burnout Kimono’ and it’s one of four lucky boards in the Oubliette mainstore. All you need to do is be a member of the free Petite Mort and Oubliette group and wait for your lucky letter to pop up and it’s all yours. The kimono and tank are one piece but you get a nice HUD of styles and colors for the tank. I love the relaxed boho look I’ve got going on here.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

 

Sweet 16

So, I took my boho self over to the grand SecondLife 16th Birthday celebration… and wooooow. There’s a ton to see and do! I was nearly overwhelmed. There are so many free gifts both at the main celebration and in the shopping area… I lost count of them all!  I may never open all these boxes.  But I was really pleased when the gift from Earthstones matched my kimono boho outfit so perfectly.

This the ‘Ferris’ necklace in moonstone and pearls and it’s Eathstones free SL16 gift. There’s also a matching set of earrings. Like everything from Earthstones, this set is absolutely perfectly made and simply gorgeous.

P.S.

Lastly, I have a quick note about my hair. While I’m not featuring my new hair, I want to pass along the news that Magika is finishing up their big Summer sale tomorrow, the 25th. All the hair in the store is 50% off. Even the deep discount hair. For everyone not just Group members. It’s a great time to grab those styles you had your eye on!

Ahhh the weekend! Time to go out or stay in. Meet up in the city with friends or just chill in front of the tube. If you have a hard time choosing, Entice may…entice you to pick going out and finding a party with their newest free group gift.

Take the downtown train

Back to Bora Bora

Back to Bora Bora

A few posts back, Pru showed us one of two gorgeous tropical themed group gifts from Beautiful Dirty Rich. Normally, we don’t “double dip” but this pant and top and shoes set was just too cute to leave behind. So get your sunscreen and your coconut drinks and let’s head back to Bora Bora!

Tropical weekend

This great complete outfit is “Weekend in Bora Bora” from Beautiful Dirty Rich. Yep, you get the top, the super cute flared pants AND the heels all for free! Just wear your group tag and help yourself. Now that would certainly be enough but wait there’s more… (cheesey announcer voice) You will get a huge HUD with ten ‘sets’ of color patterns. Each tropical pattern set has two color or pattern choices for both the pants and the top and three choices for the color of the crochet insert in the pants. Talk about mix and match! If that wasn’t enough… the sandals have ten color choices to color the entire shoe and ten choices to color just the fabric part with a wood grain heel. Whew… Amazing!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Happy Rezz Day

Happy Rezz Day

Happy Rezz Day to me!  What’s funny is I hadn’t even been thinking about it being my Rezz day today. I was puttering around taking pictures for the blog when suddenly Ms. Jezzixa Cazalet popped on the Prism Group chat and announced that she had just put up anew “Rezz Day Gift Giver” and was it anyone’s Rezz day? Cause if it was, she needed someone to try out the new board. I jumped at the chance! If  you heard a squeal of delight earlier this evening… yep… that was me, “Ooooh me! Pick me!”

Fiora

I hurried over and slapped that board quicker than you can say “Happy Rezz Day”.  This is the beautiful ‘Fiora Classic Dress’. Like everything from Prism, Fiora is beautifully made with clean, classic lines and bold colors. I picked this deep blue but you can choose one of five vibrant colors on the HUD.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Fitmesh- XS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

The delightful Ms Jezzixa told me that ‘Fiora’ will remain on the Rezz Day vender for one full year. So everyone will get a chance to add it to your closet. Plus… in the spirit of giving back to the Second Life community, you don’t need to join any group to receive this free gift! Of course, I recommend joining the group to get in the know about all the lovely new releases and the group gifts that are all as nice as this one.

It’s always refreshing to see Designers offering high quality gifts for the men of Second Life.  As Ms. Aline said in her report on the Access Event, the men have not been ignored when it comes to gifts. Nearly every vender of men’s wear has set out a very nice surprise for us. And as Ms. Aline also said: beware the lag! Cam Shopping is the way to go.

All Access

All  of the following items are free at the Access Event when you join the free group. Just wear your tag and help yourself.

Let’s start with my decision not to shave today. Or should I say, selectively shave today. This suave razor cut is from Fe Style. Facial hair style ‘V. GG’ comes with a Catwa and an Omega applier.

Like the shades? These Steampunkish glasses are the ‘Epic Glasses’ from Noir. You’ll get a huge HUD to change every surface to your choice of one of four metal colors. A note here as well on the solid quality of the build. Every detail is spot on.

I know a lot of men don’t like jewelry but I’m not one of them. Like most things in life, it all depends on the quality of the piece. This pendant from Aitui fits the bill perfectly. This is the “Forged Steel Snake” in a deep mahogany color. The necklace is completely resizable to get a correct fit on any body.

Last but not least, my pose is from “Wrong” but it is so right. “W33” comes in four variations and includes a cigarette for the pose. (Don’t tell Juli… she hates smoking) I’ve included a picture of all four poses for you perusal.

Beautiful Bliss

Beautiful Bliss

Well, I guess I had to get off the beach at some point. And this gorgeous gown was a strong temptation to leave the sand. Now, I’m more of a casual clothes person but some times it’s fun to really dress up and drop some jaws. I have a feeling this gown will be a real show stopper.

Blissful Beauty

This is the ‘Bliss Gown’ from another New-To-Me designer: Wild Fashions. I really love finding new shops especially when they are full of really stunning clothes. When I saw the ‘Bliss’ gown was the current group gift I just knew it was fate! Plus… the group is free to join! There are a couple of free gifts at the desk, so check those out too.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic mesh – XS-XL
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Salt Breeze

Me : Do y’all ever look at the “people on line” counter on the splash page while you’re logging in? I do every now and then and it usually says around 40k avis are on the grid. That’s roughly ten times the number of people who lived in my entire town back when I was in high school. Ten Times!  That’s a TON of people all doing Second Life stuff…. all the time.

You: …. Okay. That’s nice, Juli…. um… your point?

Me: Oh, right.  My point is this… With that many people enjoying the Grid… Why am I always shocked to find a New-To-Me event? Cause I found one this week. I was all excited that I had found a brand new start up event… Then I saw that it’s been going on for a while now. So… I guess my point is…. was… The Point is a cool event with loads of free gifts and great designers!

Moving on….

When you join the Point’s group for free, you will be able to take your pick of a bunch of free gifts just for the group. Many of the vendors also have gifts set out; some for free and some for deep discounts. I picked “Loka” a cute casual shorts and racer-back crop top set from Anne’s fashions to show off today, just one of several full outfits on the gift wall. The Point event ends on June 25th so you have a few days to go get your shopping done!

Shorts Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Top Sizes Included

  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega
  • Classic Mesh sizes – XXS-L

Adrift

My lovely, wistful new pose is also at an event but this time it’s the Liaison Collaborative. This is “The Shape of Summer” pose and it’s part of Le Poppycock’s new gacha: Shipwrecked. There are fifteen beautiful poses, each one with it’s own props like the gnarled drift wood here. Each play will cost you 69L so you can collect the entire set without too much damage to your wallet.

Cloud Nine

Cloud Nine

It isn’t often that Gabe is the one to tell me about a good deal. But, I guess it had to happen sometime. of course, I’m talking about the 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event he just wrote about. But since there are oodles of gifts at The 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event, I can get over being scooped.

Wrapped in Floral

It’s no secret I love a pretty floral print, the more vintage the better. So I was quick to grab this super cute wrap top. This is “Sonia” from FashionNatic and it’s the free gift at Cosmo.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

And Booted with Emeralds

Cute Boots! Need I say more?? These are the “Knit Sock Boots in Emerald” from Ricielli and they are gorgeous. You can zoom alllll the way in and each detail and texture is perfect! Cute boots AND a great build!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

I’m on Cloud Nine

I skipped this little gift at first. I thought it was “just furniture” and I’m loaded down with furniture already. Then I saw what it actually is… a wearable cloud! Your own personal little fluffy cloud to glide around on!  Needless to say, I’ve been floating everywhere since I picked it up.  Now, I don’t think MoonRabbit meant for this to be a vehicle, per se. BUT… you can glide along as you walk since the cloud is a wearable. There are four cute poses in the cloud chair and I can’t decide which one I like best!

The 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event ends on June 15th ( TOMORROW) so hurry over  and get your shopping on!

In a Mood

In a Mood

It’s not always easy to find good free or almost free things for the men of Second Life. Sometimes, I skip entire events because I just know there’s nothing there for me. I very glad I didn’t skip this round of Cosmopolitan.

Hats off

Or hats on… this is the “Weatherman” from Bondi and it’s the free gift at Cosmopolitan. The hat is technically ‘unisex’ but don’t take this from me. The hat is completely resizable and repositionable so you can get the perfect fit. Just join the Cosmopolitan free group and pick up your gifts.

On the Hunt

In my never ending hunt for men’s fashion, I scour the Hunts each month and this month has been productive. I stumbled on the ‘Red Shoe Diaries’ “Little Black Book Hunt and it has not one but two tracks just for the men. One track, the one I’m showing prizes from, has a 1L price tag for each gift and the second track is 25L per prize.

First up is the “Cole” shirt from The Sissy Bar. As with everything I’ve seen from this designer, Cole is well made and subtly textured. Well worth the 1L and the time hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • David
  • Exmachina – Davide
  • Signature – Gianni, Gerault
  • SLink – Physique

Classic Jeans

Next up on the RSD/LBB Hunt are the “Bridgeport Jeans” from Horr Menswear. I really am impressed with these jeans. Jeans are such a staple of our wardrobe, it can be easy to toss out subpar pairs and hope no one notices. Horr Menswear has done just the opposite: they’ve made a first rate pair of jeans. Every detail is perfect and the texture couldn’t be better. And it’s still just 1L and a little hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – XS-XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink – Physique
  • TMP

Party On

Party On

I love summertime with all the little farmer’s markets and fairs popping up all over. Both here in real life and on the Grid. I found a neat little fair that’s New-To-Me: The Party People Fair. There’s lots of great venders and things to buy but there’s also a Hunt! A free/0L per prize hunt! If you like a good party, anything from a tea party to a Birthday party and everything in between can be found at the Party People Fair.

Soft Pink

My favorite hunt prize I found ( in a potato, of all things) is this softly patterned “Ethnic Blouse” from Amato. Speaking of New-To-Me, Amato will be one I’m checking out more after the fair if everything is as nice as this blouse!

Sizes Included

  • Mesh Sizes XXS-L
