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.

Fall for Vintage

Fall for Vintage

The Cart Wash Sale is well under way and I just fell in love with this Vintage set in brown from Orquidea. These are applier pieces that come separately for just 10L each, and also include a system layer for non-mesh avatars as well.

10L will get you the shirt in a system layer and appliers for Maitreya or Belleza. An additional 10L will get you the jeans in the same, with the addition of sculpty cuffs at the ankles for a pretty and realistic look. If you prefer shorts, there are shorts also available. I’m sporting the set in brown, but there was a pretty set available in red as well!

Just wear your Third Life group tag (don’t worry, the group is FREE to join) and this gorgeous pair of floral jeans and this pretty top is yours FREE!

LaVian&co Salutes The Armed Services!

whc lavian military 2_001
Next Wednesday is Veteran’s Day, a time to honor everyone who has answered the call to serve their country in the U.S. Armed Forces. Just in time, LaVian&co has a great set of military inspired outfits offered in their men’s group gifts. LaVian&co, renowned for classy women’s clothing with a high-end sense of style, has entered into the men’s clothing market with the new LaVian Male group. Like its sister group, the men’s group offers a huge selection of free group gifts. At the moment, the group join will set you back 99L, but if the group follows its sister group’s business model, you can anticipate the group join will eventually climb, making it a likely bargain at this price.

Several of the group gifts are worthy of mentioning here (after all, I did pick up thirty-eight group gifts). For now, I will concentrate on my favorite outfits; those which salute the United States Military. There are five outfits in this series, each one devoted to a branch of the United States’ Armed Services, including The Coast Guard. Each outfit consists of a brown leather jacket with appropriate patches on the front and an extremely eye-catching full color graphic on the back. On the left in the above picture, you see the front of the US Marine Corps jacket and on the right a side view of the Army jacket. I chose that side view so you can see the patches on the front and a hint of the beautiful graphic on the back of that jacket at the same time. The best way to appreciate these jackets is to click on them twice and see the full-size images in my flickr.

whc lavian military 3_001

In the second picture, you can see the front of the Navy jacket along with the fantastic T-Shirt texture. These jackets all come in five sizes, including two fitmesh sizes. They can be worn with or without the T-Shirt. Next to the Navy jacket is the back of the Air Force jacket in full color. This set of jackets has some very awesome artwork. Even if you aren’t American, or have no interest in military matters, this series of group gifts is a great pickup. Each of these outfits comes with a very nice pair of Mesh Jeans in five sizes, an excellent addition of classic jeans to any man’s wardrobe. You get great basic men’s jeans in four colors (one color is used twice) even if you don’t care for the jackets! To round out these group gifts, they even include a pair of military boots. This is a fantastic set of gifts!

I strongly suggest you go take a look at LaVian Male. The group join is steeper than I usually care for, but for the number of group gifts you get, plus the likelihood that there will be many more in the future, 99L is likely to be a very good investment for most male avatars. Take care everyone and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Stargazing in Wicca’s Wardrobe

“Only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

This is the time of year that we are reminded that there is beauty to be had in the simple pleasures of life — things like nature walks, the crisp bite of the fall wind, camp-outs with a friend, and yes — even in Second Life — stargazing.

A Wicca's Camp Out [2]

“Bright Star! Would I were steadfast as though art –
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores.”
– John Keats

Of course on those cooler fall evenings, stargazing calls for a little bit warmer clothing — and thank goodness Wicca’s Wardrobe is here to help out with clothes for both the guys and the gals with their sweet, sweet steals! For just a one time 50L group join, you will have access to all their present and past group gifts, including male and female group gifts. These range from dresses, pants, full outfits, and shoes… to poses as well!

Above you can see that Riler and Astrid found matching Indian Summer jeans in a great late shade of fading late autumn brown and Riler is sporting a pair of October Boots called Easy Rider Boots. These are both great gifts from Wicca’s Wardrobe, which you can call “yours,” once your group tag is steadfastly in place.

A Wicca's Camp Out

“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently. When you look into infinity, you realize there are more important things than what people do all day.” – Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

These male and female jackets by Wicca’s Wardrobe came separate from the jeans, but look as if they were just made for them, and certainly are a matching set for any two friends who need to stay warm on autumn evening camp outs to star gaze and discuss the really important things in life.

The male version of the jacket which Riler is wearing is called Luke and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. It is one piece (the undershirt with coat attached) for easy fitting, and is a great compliment to the female version of the jacket called Leia which Astrid is sporting. Leia too is one piece in all the standard sizes and fits just as nicely.

There are plenty of new and old group gifts to be had for your piddly 50L group join gift. You’ll be able to fill a small closet (or wardrobe!) for that small bit of change. Don’t miss out on the chance to check out Wicca’s Wardrobe!

Coming soon to FabFree!

When I stumbled across this cute group gift at Ruca Tease, I knew I had to have it.  Why?  This is totally something I would wear in real life!  The over-sized sweater comes in 5 sizes, and the package includes matching earrings, boots, and system layer jeans.  A great leather shoulder bag is also available as a gift.  Not only is it gorgeous, your friends can sneak treats from your bag just by clicking on it.  It is my new favorite toy! The group is only $20 L to join, and is more than worth it, with multiple group gits for men and women.

 

Coming soon to FabFree!

My new cupcakey outfit was the perfect thing to run errands.  My first stop had to be The Grocery Store and Market.  This may be one of the funniest stores I have been in!  Grab your free cart and wear it, then cruise the aisles for all sorts of fun and free food to fill it up.  Among the freebies are some really great and fun food and celebration sets, so this store is really worth a stop.

 The Heat Wave Event at The Wash Sim is now underway and I am thrilled to be helping to cover it!

One of the first places I ran to was the JZ For Men booth which is offering up three Mesh items for us, each one on sale for 10L. The JZ Classic T-Shirt – Dragon Eye in light gray and the JZ Classic T-Shirt – Mechanical in light blue are both very nice, well textured tees and included with them are materials enabled versions as well, a feature I found surprising for such a low price. The last item is a great pair of jeans, the JZ Loose Fit Jeans in basic blue and like the T-Shirts they come with a materials enabled version as well. So come on down and check out The Heat Wave Event, there are some great bargains here. —–WHC Riler
