Sunday Casual

Sunday Bridges

It’s casual Sunday for me… and though this outfit I picked up as the latest group gift from Tiffany Designs is hardly ordinary, it’s just dressy enough to be called business casual. It includes a pair of slacks and a sweater with a geometric design on it, both in all the standard mesh sizes. You’ll also get a pair of shoes for system feet, though I opted to wear my own in the picture above.

The Tiffany’s group is 100L to join, but after joining you’ll have access to this gift as well as four other past group gifts for men that are still out. You can see two that were previously blogged [Here] and [Here]. So you definitely get your money’s worth. You’ll need to pay the vendor 1L to get the gift, but that is immediately refunded to you.

Have a great Sunday afternoon!

90s Dayz

90s Dayz

The Back to School looks are starting (Have you entered your back to school picture for our FabFree photo contest yet? Be on the look out for all those snapping cameras and enter your photo [here]!) I came across a 1L shirt with vest — they come in separate pieces making for an easy look that is classic — that I really wanted to share.

This is the 90s Dayz gift for 1L from the School Drools Hunt that you can pick up at Furry Fashion. Despite the store name, this mesh shirt and vest in all the standard sizes works great for a standard human avatar as well. And the classy black button down shirt looks great alone, or with the added separate piece vest. I’ve added a photo of the each so you get an idea of what you are getting with the hunt prize.

Don’t delay, get out there and hunt this Fab gift down!

Foxboro

Foxboro

Horr Menswear is participating in a rather nifty hunt… the Body of Evidence Hunt. This hunt has lots of excellent items for both men and women and I liked the look of the polo shirt offering that Horr Menswear is giving as their 1L contribution.

The Foxboro polo comes in all the standard mesh sizes in the color shown in the picture above and includes an alpha layer for standard avatars. For 1L and a little hunting time, this is a classic look well worth picking up.

Master & Mistress of Ceremonies

Master and Mistress of Ceremonies

It’s not Halloween yet, but that is no excuse to avoid good cosplay! Or just good Gothic fun. Loki and I did a little hunting and came up good with a couple of outfits you won’t want to miss out on.

You’re seeing us in Roped Passion’s matching gift for Ladies and Men for the Carnival of Souls Hunt. Just 1L will get you this is the Mistress and Master of Ceremonies outfits. Both come in all the standard mesh sizes and with a good alpha layer (P.S. if you picked up the outfit earlier before the alpha layer was out, you can pick up the alpha layer for free in a box at the front of the store now!).

The lady’s outfit includes this gorgeously detailed corset with roses and skulls, a pair of panties, a bra, and a necklace. You will also get a top hat (not shown).

The men’s outfit is an exquisite suit that comes in one piece for easy fitting and wear. You’ll need your own shoes, but a plain black pair will do nicely.

Ceremonies 2

Love tipped me off on a gift I didn’t want to miss out on, and if you are a LeLutka mesh head wearer, you may want to pick this one up too. The Laura Hurley group is FREE to join, and if you stop by the main-store you can pick up this beautiful LeLutka head applier called “Jojo” for FREE as the current group gift. I fell in love with the beautiful skin tone, the beauty mark on the left side near the mouth/chin and the deep wine colored lips. Since I wear a Maitreya body, I was able to find an applier nearby for 200L and I was set for that one cost, head to toe!

Scrabble

Scrabble

This 1L hunt gift from The Man Cave was just what I needed to spell “classic look” and I took that to heart for a break and a game of Scrabble. You’ll find this gift as part of the Fall of Man Back to School Hunt. When you land, give the area a bit of time to rezz (you’ll find yourself at a landing point) and head to The Man Cave store to look for the Book that is the 1L Prize.

Inside the box you’ll find two different packages, though each contains the Jayke outfit (both this classically styled shirt with the matching pants). The shirt comes in a tucked-in or un-tucked version and the pants fit nicely with boots or dress flats. One box will contain a mesh outfit with alphas for a standard system avatar, the other will contain the same mesh outfit to fit a variety of mesh bodies, including: Adam, Aesthetic, Slink, and TMP.

360 Cargo

360 Cargo

Today’s likely to be a busy day today, but luckily I have pockets… because I figure I’ll need them to hold all the sticky note reminders of all I have to do. These FREE gift cargo pants in blue are by 360 and the group is FREE to join as well so you won’t spend a single linden if you decide to pick them up. They come in all the standard sizes and you get an excellent alpha layer. There is a bonus grey tank top included with the pants, but I opted to go without in order to show off the July tattoo gift at Suicide Gurls.

One hint on the FREE pants… 360 is part of Allure, which is a Ladies store. If the teleport lands you downstairs in the women’s section, simply walk upstairs to the men’s department, which is 360, and that’s where you’ll find the gift.

But I digress… this July group gift from Suicide Gurls is excellent. Like all their group gift tattoos, it is unisex… so ladies you can pick it up too if you fancy it. The group fee is 150L but there are now 7 group gifts out for you to pick up, including this amazing tattoo. It includes a fresh, faded, and soft version, as well as system layers, and appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Omega, and TMP. You’re bound to find a way to wear this one.

Splashback

Splashback

The For Him Hunt 2 ends July 31st, but there is still time for us men to fill out our inventories with things like this excellent shirt from Trashed. I picked this one up by finding the hunt icon in their main-store. This is a 1L hunt and the shirt was well worth 1L and much more.

This shirt comes in all the standard sizes as well as an additional fitmesh size in the box (much appreciated). I really liked that it wasn’t just your “plain black shirt” but that it had the “splashback” design on the shirt. A nice touch to a classic t-shirt design.

Eclectic Essences at Kustom9

Gacha Kustom9 Hello Fab Free’rs I hope you’re doing well. It’s been a minute since I did some gacha-ing and there are several cute gachas waiting to be played at the current round of Kustom9. You know I can’t resist skin gachas, and especially not when the Essences gacha is set at 75 lindens per play. Also, ieQED has some sweet summer bangles at just 29 lindens per play.  These gachas are really just two of many but they caught my attention first! haha

This beautiful skin is one of the 12 Arwen gacha prizes from Essences at Kustom9. These gachas include Lelutka head applier only. Matching body appliers can be found for sale at the Essences main store. Of the 12 total versions in various skin tones, 10 commons and 2 rares. Pru is wearing the Arwen #9 which is one of the common prizes in the dark01 tone. I personally rarely wear the darker tones, but when I tried this one on, it was just too pretty! It really is a beautiful skin. It also looks lighter or darker depending on your windlight settings, which really just makes me like it even more. At just 75 lindens per play, if you’re a Lelutka head wearer, you need this skin or one of the other equally beautiful versions in your inventory!

I was so excited when I saw that ieQED had a gacha at this round of Kustom9. These bangles are so cute, and are the type of jewelry you could wear with anything. The ieQED gacha is just 29 lindens per play. The rare gets you a color change hud, I wasn’t so lucky, but I’m thrilled with the three bangles I did get. How cute is that pineapple?! Truly I feel like these little “eclectic” bracelets capture the fun of summer perfectly. There are 10 total bangles, and the rare hud will give you the option of picking between 5 metal tones and 6 gem colors.

So you can get a good look a the other Essences and ieQED gacha prizes at Kustom9, I’ve included a copy of the gacha keys below. Good Luck!

Another Man’s Treasure

Another Man's Treasure

The popular For Him Hunt is making a round 2 and is already proving lucrative as a 1L hunt for guys. I made my first stop at Fe Style and picked up this zippered T-shirt called “Klett” for only 1L. It comes in two versions — one with a gold zipper and one with a silver zipper and you also get a color change hud that changes the color of the side slit insets with a total of 8 color choices, making it even more versatile.

This shirt is an excellent fit and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. If you’re still in a standard body, it also includes a good alpha layer, but does fit mesh bodies cleanly as well (I put it on my slink body and it was a great fit for it too).

I was then off to do a bit of sim exploring. If you’re looking for photogenic hot spots, I highly recommend “Junktown” just for looking around. As they say, one man’s junk… is another man’s treasure!

Art Deco Darling

Tuesday
I feel a little like a Showgirl in these fabulous group gifts from Swallow and SlackGirl, and I’m perfectly fine with that! It’s been a while since I showed some pretty makeup and accessories, so these group gifts are just the thing. It’s extra fun that they all happen to look so lovely together!

SlackGirl is one of my favorite stores for makeup in Second Life. There seem to always be group gifts as well, which certainly doesn’t hurt. This gorgeous lipstick is part of the huge Clarice set available FREE to all SlackGirl group members. This particular gift is for the Catwa head-wearers only. The gift includes 3 huds with 8 lipstick shades each. I really like the high shine of these lipsticks, it’s a nice departure from the matte lipsticks you see a lot. Also at SlackGirl, along with many other gifts, are these pretty little eye jewels. These FREE group gift eye jewels can be worn with mesh or classic avatars. The gift includes a left and right attachment, and a hud that allows you to adjust the jewel color, and the metal color. The SlackGirl group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however I’m certain you won’t be disappointed, there are several group gifts still available including the ones I’ve shared here.

I will admit, I don’t often wear earrings in Second Life, but I think these are beautiful! These art deco looking earrings are one of several FREE group gifts out at Swallow. These beautiful earrings include a color change hud as well, and can be resized using the hud. I’m sure you’ve been wondering about the pretty butterflies floating around my hair! These are another FREE group gift at Swallow. This butterfly headpiece comes in several colors and can be sized via touch menu, I of course chose this orange color because it reminds me of the Monarch butterflies I love. At the original size this accessory is more of a hat, but I used the resize scripts and scaled mine down to look more like a fancy fascinator. The Swallow group also has a one time join fee of just 30 lindens. This is a steal when you consider the lovely group gifts available!

Finally, if you like the pretty face Pru has on with the red eyeliner that goes so well with the lipstick from SlackGirl, it’s another of the Corrie gacha appliers Essences has available for just 75 lindens per play at The Liaison Collaborative ! There’s more info about this head applier in my previous post here.
