Self Expression

“I’m not interested in clothes that just convey a certain look or fashion.
Clothes for me have always been a form of self-expression.”
~ Phoebe Philo

Hello hello Fab Free’ers! I’m going to make this short and sweet because one of the finds I am about to share with you is for this weekend only. This gorgeous leather jacket is a Happy Weekend special at LeiMotiv priced at just 60 linden for this weekend only. It comes in several sizes, and has a color change hud that allows you to change the main portion of the jacket, the pockets on the sleeves, and the metal parts.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Adorning my new jacket are several pins from the two free pin sets at Star Sugar. I’ve been eyeing these for a little while now, waiting for just the right thing to wear them with. Pin set 1 includes 16 pins and is free for SLF&O group members. That group is free to join. Pin set 2 has 9 pins and is free for everyone, no group needed. These pins are intended (I believe) for a backpack also sold at Star Sugar, however I was able to wear them with my jacket by attaching them to my chest attachment spot and moving them to the place I wanted by editing them. I’ve included the vendor photos for each of the two sets below so you can get a look at these cute as heck pins.

I could go on and on about leather jackets. There’s something about them. Even a good faux leather jacket is fine by me. I love the feel and the smell of them and the way they fit the body. And when I saw that I could get a gold one FREE from Chic Princess, you better believe I was down for it! All I needed was a free group space (the group is FREE to join) and the gift was mine in all its glorious leather goldness!

  • Fitmesh XS – XL with an appropriate alpha

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

Stormy

It was a dark and stormy night…

No wait. That’s just the start of the latest novel I’ve been reading. Scratch that.

It was the eighth of October… another day of the Mens Only Hunt and another great find to put into my inventory. You won’t want to miss out on this outstanding mens leather jacket from Gabriel. It’s FREE other than the cost of your hunting time. Once you find the iconic beer, you’ll get this jacket in standard, Slink, and TMP fits, and the box also includes and alpha for standard avatars. I really like the zipper details and the asymmetrical collar.

I paired this jacket with some men’s jewelry I picked up at Chop Zuey. The men’s group gift there (the Gibraltar Necklace in silver) is top quality and resizable. Ladies you might like it too. The group is 350L to join but the gifts are top notch and frequently given, making the group well worth joining.

C’est la Monday

C'est la Monday

Hello Fab Free, I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m having a serious Monday! Thankfully, there’s always some retail therapy available in Second Life. I think it’s definitely true that shopping is a form of therapy, even in a virtual setting. I know I feel better when I get to buy new things. hehehe That being said, it’s always better when the stuff you acquire is FREE. **Note Added 1/19/15**Here’s more proof this was a total case of the Monday’s! Somehow I missed that our lovely Julianna had already shown this great jacket, be sure to check out her post here also.  
C'est la Monday 1 This pretty leather jacket from Virtual Diva Couture is their current group gift. I love the sort of dark mauve color of the leather, I think it make the jacket very feminine, while keeping an edgy style. The gift is FREE, you just need to join the Virtual Diva Couture in world group, which is FREE to join. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes, and a fitted mesh version.

Another super cute group gift are these pretty star hairpins. This gift from C’est la Vie includes several hairpins in gold and two silver versions, each with a different colored star. I really like this gift because cute hair accessories are not something you see often. The gift is FREE to all C’est la Vie group members, and the group is FREE to join as well.

Here’s to a better Monday, Enjoy!

Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
