A quiet place

A quiet place

Good evening, Fabulous Readers. As I’m sure you already know, Second Life’s 19th Birthday is going strong and there are many many free gifts to be had at the Shop & Hop. Sadly, there aren’t many offerings this round for the men but I did ferret out a good gift from Vagrant. You may be forgiven for thing Vagrant has nothing for men as the booth shows only women’s clothing. But, at the main store there are some very nice things for the guys. While the selection is small, the quality is high and I thoroughly enjoy spending my free Shop & Hop 500L Gift Card there. 

Simply collect your free store credit at the Shop and Hop booth then follow the LM to the main store. Right now, everything in the store is 50% off but it still allows you to use the store credit! ( That may change quickly as the 50% sale was scheduled to end yesterday but was still going at the time of this post) I was able to pick up several things including the pants, top and hat I’m sporting in the photograph. The gift does not mention an expiration date but I wouldn’t tempt fate. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

Hey ya Fab Fam! I probably don’t even need to say it but… it’s Tuesday!!  which means it’s time for 25L Tuesday. And both C&N Designs and Muneria are getting back to the old days of 25L Tuesday which meant RP stuff!

C&N Medieval Designs, a long time excellent source for RP clothes for both men and women has this amazing smexy “Pirate” outfit for the men that Gabe is lookin’ so  good in today. The out fit comes complete with the top, pants and boots! Plus the vest can be worn with or with the shirt.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – S – L
  • Signature
  • SLink Male

My rakish set is also a 25L Tuesday find. This is the “Cusu” set from Muneria. You get the tunic top with the bracers and belt wrap plus the leather pants. The HUD for both items is huge with plenty of choices. I know my RP character will be wearing this one for our next role play date.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Fitmesh – M
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

As always, 25L Tuesday is a fleeting thing so hurry over to get the goodies while they last!

The Dragon’s Brother

The Dragon's Brother

Good afternoon, FabFree Readers. I know it’s rather late in the day to be posting a 25L Tuesday special since Tuesday is on limited time now. However, I had to get the word out. Viki, a smashing designer for both men and women has this full men’s set , “Jadon” for 25L Tuesday.

While I was at Viki’s main shop, I also found an unadvertised sale on a great pair of boots. Just the thing needed to finish up the outfit. The ‘Kane’ boots were only 10L for the pair. I foresee using these quit a lot as they are very well made and stylish.

We men do sometimes get overlooked when it comes to specials and sales. Or it’s another set of sweats or a baseball cap. But this is perfect for those of us who RP or prefer to live in a somewhat different era. As with many of the participants in these day long sales, this deal will be gone after midnight. So hurry along.

Sizes Included for both outfit and boots

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature
  • SLink Male

Cold Spring

Cold Spring

Good morning, Fab Free Readers. The calendar may tell me it’s Spring but it’s still rather cold here in the real world. 25 degrees this evening and that’s before our chance of snow this coming weekend. While the shops and designers are bringing out the bathing suits and shorts, I still want something warm I’m afraid.

In deference to that, I have found a very nice new coat, scarf and sweater from a new-to-me designer – R3VOLT. The shop doesn’t appear to have an in-world store any longer but their Marketplace store is up and running.  This is the “Sterling” coat but really it’s the entire top in one piece. That’s coat, scarf and sweater.  There is also a HUD to change all three plus the pocket square to any one of fifteen color/pattern choices. All this for a low 10L price makes for an easy bundled up ensemble indeed.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL (Alpha layer included)

Matching Support for Ukraine

ukraine_008

There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Russians – Sting

Hey gang!

Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).

Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head.  Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again.  Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.

It’s all just leaders and their egos.  If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars.  But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not.  It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.

But that’s just how this little idealist sees it.  I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do.  War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?!  The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way.  Sigh.

My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese.  Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me.  The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same.  Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams…  Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.

They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends.  Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.

Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.

I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market.  Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L.  You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys.  The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift.  These fit as follows:

Mens:

  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Legacy

Womens:

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!

Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be.  Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤

market 1_022

Hey gang,

So, I was inspired by my partner Cray’s ability to find dealios on marketplace and I went and found myself something to match!  Proving that there are cute things to be found on market for *everyone*.

For the guys, Cray found this awesome 10L outfit by ALB.  He’s rather conservative style wise (unlike me  lol), so I was very impressed by the colorful scarf which really spoke to my bohemian sense of style.  It’s a full outfit (pants, shirt, jacket, scarf) and fits:

  • FitMesh
  • Classic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Slink Male
  • Gamit Ocacin
  • Signature Gianni
  • Adin Bento

Now my punk-ish outfit, which I love, is on market for only 50L by Misako, it too is a full outfit (suspender pants, sweatshirt and hat).  The sweatshirt comes with a HUD giving you several choices of 80’s films (I chose Indy!) and the pants come in blue and black as well.  This outfit fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Freya

Anyhoo, there is so much going on in the grid right now, so let me wrap this up and grab more stuff to show you.

I said find it, find it, go on and take it if you love it

I said find it, find it, go on and take it if you love it

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. Julianna has been so busy building the “New Kids”, I’ve had to step in to help her find men’s wear on Grid. One of my old favorite designers has opened a new “shop” and I was thrilled to tell her and now the blog readers about it. (And to get Alistar some proper clothing.)

Gabriel has opened a new little shop next door to the main shop called “Free Bees”. And as you might guess all the items inside are 100% free. To everyone, no group needed. I had to stop from grabbing everything in one wild frenzy. But then I thought, “It’s free… why not?” 

Like this “Slim Pants Suit” in black and white. But this striking suit isn’t the only one. There are three black and white styles in the box. As well as the three designs on just the shirt and jacket and the three designs on a complete set… plus the complete set with both shorter and longer pants. Everything you need all for zero lindens.

Of course, Gabriel still has the large 50% off section and the 1L section in the main store. So you could literally fill your closet for a handful of lindens. And look smashing doing it.

Good evening, Fab Readers.  Finding good quality men’s wear and accessories here on the Grid is often a trial and can be very frustrating. Honestly, I think if I have to see one more hoodie… Never mind, I digress. When the morass of “not affordable” or “mundane” men’s wear gets me down, I retreat to my stand by favorites. Places with quality work and generous groups. One such place is R&R Swag. They can always be counted on for excellent group gifts and other affordable options. Plus, the designers are rather charming and very friendly.

I found recently that the prizes on the Lucky Chairs in the main store have been updated and I was delighted to see that my initial had popped up as well. I didn’t hesitate to grab this full outfit ; The Blade Biker Outfit. The complete outfit includes the jacket, with and without the tee shirt, the jeans and the boots. All impeccably built and perfect for casual days or nights. The outfit is designer exclusively for the Signature Gianni but I found it looked just as smashing on my Belleza Jake. As Julianna would say, “Your mileage may vary.” Even if this look doesn’t suit you, R&R Swag has many other past group gifts available as well as other outfits loaded into the Lucky Chairs. The Group is free to join as well.

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree. As I am sure you are aware, the weekend is upon us and I for one am quite glad to see it’s arrival. Not only does the weekend bring some well deserved rest and relaxation, it brings a slew of sales and events with it. And the men haven’t been excluded today.

For example, Finer Threads is participating in the Happy Weekend Sale and are offering this refreshing change from the morass of sweats and snapbacks. This is the “Asher” suit in black and it was a mere 60L as part of the sale. The set is all one piece however you as receive a HUD to change the color of the suit jacket and inner shirt.  I found a bit of mixing and matching fit me well today with shades of black and blue. The Asher comes in several other colors all for the same 60L price if the black doesn’t suit your taste. And since the sale is a “Weekend” offering, I imagine that Asher will go back to the rack for it’s regular price on Sunday evening. So make some haste if you want to pick it up for this special sale.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni
