Time and Again

Time and Again

Certain stores are good for group gifts time and again… and Prism is one of those that offers a top quality monthly group gift for both ladies and men. In case you missed them, there are several past group gifts out, even though I’m showing you the current FREE September group gift called “Jupiter.”

Jupiter is an outfit that comes with white capris pants and a sweater with a texture change hud. The sweater is white as well, but includes four grey print overlays including the timepiece texture in the picture above. You get all the standard mesh sizes.

Last month’s group gift is just as nice, and you’ll want to pick it up too, if you haven’t already. Gabriel showed it to you [HERE].

Love showed you some of the fabulous items to be had at the Cart Wash Sale from Dark Water Designs in her post [Here] but the menfolk are not to be left out. As Love showed you, the cart has gorgeous offerings for the ladies, but also some top quality offerings for men… and all for just the tiny price tag of only 10L each.

I picked up my outfit for only 20L total: 10L for the t-shirt (you get the print version shown and a solid grey as well in the box) and the pants were also only 10L. Like the t-shirt, the pants box gives you two options… the charcoal shown as well as a camo (not shown. With each, you get all the standard sizes, plus two fitmesh sizes — all for just 10L. In addition, if you purchase the pants, there is a pair of shoes included!

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!

Blue Twist

Blue Twist

Out of the blue… I decided to get a little twisted… and put together a quick outfit to share with all of you.

The Twisted Hunt is on, and while this hunt is a tough one, the hunt gifts are well worth the finding. My amazing Rune in Blue mesh shirt (it comes in all the standard sizes) is the Twisted Hunt gift that is yours FREE when you hunt it down at Roped Passion’s main-store. There is also a nice ladies gift, two side gifts, and you can get the shirt in grey for only 25L if you so desire. A pretty fantastic deal, if I don’t say so myself.

I was also checking out the Fall Tears Hunt and when I started unpacking my boxes, was pleased to discover a pair of classically styled blue pants that worked perfect with my blue shirt from Roped Passion’s.

Stop by Horr Menswear and do a bit of hunting for the Fall Tears Hunt and this pair of blue slacks in all the standard sizes is yours for 1L and your hunting time. The cut is superb and they have a nice detailing of seams and pockets on the back rear end. These paired nicely with my shirt, but would go well with just about anything from dressing up to casual shirts as well.

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.

The Keys to Paniolo

The Keys to Paniolo

Astrid made her way to the Cart Wash Sale this morning and she didn’t have to twist my arm hard to convince me that I should head there myself to see what there was to see. It turned out to be well worth my time. There was a plethora of things for gentlemen to choose from, and it was hard to pick something to show you fellas first.

I finally decided on this Paniolo Outfit in grey by Roped Passion’s. (If grey is not your color, don’t stress… the cart also had it out in blue, brown, and green.) This outfit comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh and the shirt and shorts are two separate pieces with excellent included alphas if you are using a system body. At only 10L for a full outfit, you just can’t go wrong.

And Ladies… don’t shy away from this Cart. There were goodies there for you as well!

Morning Java

Morning Java

Paisley Daisy is one of my favorite places to pick up the monthly VIP group gift. And June’s gift is just gorgeous. I stopped by this morning and nabbed this two piece pants suit in red (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes) with its flowing flexi side sash and thought that with a good set of heels and some bangle bracelets, I would be ready to take on the world with a great cup of Java… which is how I ended up at the latest art installation Sim — Entropy III — which is… you guessed it… the inside of a giant coffee cup! Well worth visiting some Second Life morning, if I don’t say so myself!

My pretty bangle bracelets by Paddling Melody are a fabulous FREE find on the marketplace, and what I really love best about these is the versatility. When you open the box you’ll find that you can wear each single bracelet separately, or the whole kit and caboodle as one set. The bracelets are just set to wear on the right arm… so if you want to wear them on both arms, as I have in the photo above, you’ll want to make a copy of the set and “attach to” your avatar’s left forearm and edit into place, and voila!

My shoes really are worth mentioning… even if they are over our 75L price tag limit. I had stopped by the Arcade Gacha event to take a look around for new hair and fell in love with these amazing heels by Azoury. They are 100L per spin, but each spin gets you a set of heels that will fit Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, or TMP feet. Azoury are unique and high quality shoes, so if you can spare the Linden to give this machine a spin, you might want to give it a go.

Morning Java 1

My last stop was at the Clawtooth Gacha at the Arcade Gacha, where I picked up my new pretty hairstyle. There are two styles in the machine… the one I am showing you in the picture above called Zosia which is a shorter style. There was also a longer style called Jolene in the gacha machine. Both are really beautiful on, and at only 75L per spin, these are a really good deal.

Back in the Groove

I finally felt like I had gotten back into my groove yesterday… just in time to discover a really great new gift at Entice! The outfit you see me wearing in the picture above is the Third Life group gift courtesy of Entice! 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! The outfit comes in all the standard sizes for a great fit.

Since I was feeling playful, I visited Heavenly Groove. Yup, that’s the name of the sim. I have to give props to the gorgeous location… since the props gave me poses😉 And like I said I was back in my groove. At least for now!

Show Your Pride

Show Your Pride 2

One of the best things about Second Life is the diversity… and April marks the start of the Femboy Hunt. There are quite a few stores in Second life which are friendly to Femboy and LBGT fashion, one of which is Brocade Tiger. For this hunt in particular, Brocade Tiger is featuring a 2L gift that is not to be missed… these “Pride Blue Jeans” with their rainbow look and bedazzled back pockets. For just 2L and a little hunting time, these quality mesh jeans in all the standard sizes are well worth picking up. They even include a fantastic attached rainbow mesh belt.

Show Your Pride

I figured Astrid wouldn’t be happy unless I showed a little more pride than just the jeans… so I scoured the marketplace and looked for some proper jewelry, and managed to find a reasonably priced necklace at C3. You can get their Gay Pride Necklace for just 10L. I did find that though the marketing says it is unisex it required a bit of editing to get it to fit a male form. It wasn’t difficult with a bit of patience, though, as the shape of the cord is well done.

I’m out for now… but I’ve got my rainbow on! Show your pride too if you are so inclined with these fantastic items.
