Gorgeous on a Gray Day

Photo 23

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I discovered another Fabulous Find at The Cart Wash sale to share with you.  I scooped up my strappy Beautiful Gray Day dress for only 10L at the Emerald Couture stand.  This knee-length frock offers a figure hugging fit that ends with a ruffled hem.  It features a light gray background topped with a delicate floral pattern.  With a variety of sizes and mesh body options, this budget-friendly dress is sure to fit your avatar.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Body Compatibility:  Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Slink Hourglass
  • Gray Day Shoes (not shown in picture)

Half Off?  Count Me In!

Although this amazing sale doesn’t quite drop the price to the 75L mark, I did want to pass along the news of the 50 percent off sale over at Exile.  All in-world styles, except Gatchas, are marked half off until April 7th.  As soon as I read the note card announcing the special offer, I clicked the teleport button, only to see the dreaded “Region is full” message.  I persisted, and finally after multiple attempts, arrived.  I picked up several new hairdo’s, including the Class Act style featured above.  For only 125L, you can purchase regular color packs, fusion packs for 140L, and the All or Nothing pack for 625L.  It was well worth the effort required to enter the sim!

Those Extra Little Touches

At the Rispetto Designs cart at The Wash, I picked up these glossy, dark gray Amour Signature Shawnda earrings for only 10 little Linden dollars.  They coordinated perfectly with the hue of the roses scattered across my dress.  The triple hoop design provided just the right amount of bling to complement my outfit.

Treat Yourself…

… to a little retail therapy.  This round of The Cart Wash is absolutely packed with bargains galore, and I hope you get a chance to teleport over to the Wash and check out all the booths for yourself.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Wish You Were Here…

Wish you were here

…. at The Wash Cart Sale

It’s that time again to head down to The Wash and find some great inexpensive deals.  I’ll be showing many items over the next several days and I’ll start off by wearing one look I found at the Rispetto Designs cart.  I combined the Gregory Mesh Shirt and the Klint Mesh Washed Bleached Blue Jeans for a super casual look. Each piece is just $10L… not a bad find for the money.

Just a drop in the bucket

Before the Cart Sale opened I was out on a World Tour… the World Tour Hunt, that is… and found a Wishing Well at Khargo. The well also includes all the landscaping behind me (wall not included) and only has a Land Impact of 10. This hunt gift cost just $2L to pick up. Every good well needs a bucket and I found just the right one.  The Holdable Water Bucket was found on the Marketplace by Arsia’s Gorean Delights for only $25L.

All the great deals at the Wash Cart Sale is just a drop in the bucket to look fabulous! The Cart Sale runs from March 29th – April 12th.

AvaGirl & AvaBoy - Baubles Bear Sweater & Ice Skates

Lacing Up the Skates…

I’m going skating, (or at least virtually… It is just too cold to go outside today). And you can too with the FREE Christmas gifts from AvaGirl & AvaBoy. For the men, the gift was Baubles Bear Sweater and Ice Skates w/ animations. Just wear the skates and your walking and running movements make you skate like a pro. There are ladies gifts as well in the AvaGirl store. I also grabbed a pair of Bruce Rolled Mesh Jeans off of the Rispetto Designs cart at the Wash Cart Sale. As with all the other items from the Cart Sale, the jeans were only $10L.

Too Cool for the Ice…

If you’d rather just sit and watch, at least do it comfortably in the Todd Shirt & Jacket which is the Day 18 Male Advent gift from !gO. The jacket can also be worn separately to match your style. Now, if I only had a drink to dip this candy cane in…

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.

Friday

Hello FabFree.

Friday

I hope this finds all of you enjoying your Friday and looking forward to the weekend. I have started my weekend off with some of the Hunts that are just kicking off. However what I’m showing you today actually isn’t from a Hunt. More of a haunt. Allow me to explain.  There are certain shops that I frequent even when they aren’t participating in Hunts or sales simply because I love their clothing. Cold Ash is one of my ‘haunts’. The clothes are extraordinarily well made and I eagerly look forward to their sales and Hunts and especially group gifts.  This is the ‘Logan Shirt’ in navy blue and it’s a free gift for everyone. The shirt includes the standard Mesh sizes S-L and three Fitmesh versions with one version being for The Mesh project bodies. I found it to be very true to size and an easy wear.

You’ll find this superb addition to your wardrobe on the ‘new releases’ board as you enter the shop. I can’t say how long it will be available so I advise haste.

I Remain Most Sincerely Yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Carting

Greetings FabFree Readers.

Carting

As, I am sure you are aware, the Bi Annual Cart sale at the Wash is going strong as we’ve seen from several of the ladies posts here.  But the gentlemen of Second Life haven’t been forgotten. I stopped by the Rispetto Designs Cart and found a very nice selection of casual men’s wear.  I picked out the Liam shirt in a nice linin color to show you and paired it with some comfortable jeans. The Liam top comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and has it’s own alpha layer. “Liam” also comes in a soft charcoal gray color if you fancy something darker.

The Rispetto Designs Cart has a wide selection of that wardrobe basic – Jeans. There are pairs on sale from the palest ‘broken in’ blue to gray to black. I chose a basic indigo blue. The “Brent” jeans come in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and have their own alpha layer.

 

The Bi Annual Wash cart Sale runs until July 6 for your shopping pleasure.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Shiny Shabby Surely!

whc rispetto 1_001

whc rispetto 2_002

Hello everyone! It is I, your intrepid male freebie/cheapie hunter with a quick post for you. February will be over soon and will bring to a close two fabulous hunts: Menstuff and Jack Or Jill. If you have been putting it off, now is the time to start hunting! The amount of quality men’s hunt prizes available at the moment is impressive, and all yours for a little bit of effort! Even more time sensitive, though, is a pair of freebies that are available right now and will not be out very much longer.

Shiny Shabby is celebrating it’s anniversary on Second Life by throwing a big sales event featuring an unbelievable number of freebies. The Hoorenbeek stall at Shiny Shabby is offering as its free anniversary gift the Mesh Military Boots in Burgundy. As with all Hoorenbeek products, the texturing is amazing and the overall quality is excellent. I never pass up an opportunity to pick up free Hoorenbeek and neither should you, especially since this gift comes with both male and female versions in the box. The boots come in regular and short variations with the eyelets and laces texture changable via hud, and if that isn’t generous enough they also include the mesh jeans i am wearing and the mesh belt in two variants! While over at Shiny Shabby also check out what Amacci has put out as a free gift. The Zenith Eyes in Mocha are a striking set of Mesh eyes adjustable via hud. Additionally included are versions for those who prefer using legacy eyes. As you can see by the many Shiny Shabby items featured on Fab Free this week, it is an event not to be missed. Now you have two more excellent reasons to head on over there!

I started this post mentioning two great men’s hunts that are winding up this month. Rispetto Designsfree Jack Or Jill Hunt gift is the Devin MESH Jacket & Hoodie in Army. As you can see from my lead picture it is a very casual looking garment. Appearing to be made up of multiple layers, this one piece of integrated mesh is beautifully textured to look well-worn and comfortable. Coming in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, this is a free hunt gift definitely worth getting your hands on. Also on the Jack Or Jill Hunt is the free hunt gift from 7 Deadly S{K}ins. The River in Taupe skin is a very handsome skin. Even though I usually like to show off skins by getting close to naked, this time I decided to spare all of you the gratuitous near nudity and just tell you it’s a fine example of the kind of quality skins 7 Deadly S{K}ins is known for producing. When you are picking up these two hunt gifts look for the Menstuff Hunt prizes as well since both stores are also participating in that also.

That is all I have for you at the moment, but rest assured I will try to tempt you into going hunting at least once more before this month is over. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

An Avalanche Of Menstuff Begins!

whc winter rispetto 01

Greetings from the Arctic Circle! Well actually it’s the East Coast of the United States, but this weekend you can’t tell the difference. We are getting slammed with the white, fluffy stuff as I write this; and with some luck, I just might have electricity on long enough to get this posted!

Menstuff is, in my opinion, the best male hunt of the year. It is a 1L hunt, although some stores have opted to set their prizes out for free! The hunt object to look for is a dark blue T-Shirt shaped object. While they can be small, they are usually not hard to find.

The fantastic Trent Mesh Sweater in Charcoal from Rispetto Designs is where we begin the Menstuff coverage. This sweater has a heavy wool texture to help you look toasty, and the styling is simple and masculine. Click the above picture twice and get a good look at the texture. It’s marvelous! It is offered in five sizes for an easy fit. I found the Mesh looked flawless on me. Also, Rispetto Designs includes the Logoro Mesh Jeans in Blue/Grey in the Menstuff Hunt prize which are excellent and would be a solid garment to have building a casual wardrobe. They are realistically textured and come in five sizes also for a good fit. This is a prize that should not be ignored, especially if you are a new resident to second life! Items like these will have you looking great in no time and for only 1L!

whc winter hana 01

As I said, I have been hit in real life with one heck of a snowstorm! It is extremely cold here, so when I saw the 1L Open Cardigan W/Shirt Menstuff Hunt prize from Hanauma Bay Clothiers, I had to smile. Not only is it super good looking and well made, but it is a mesh piece layering two sweaters! This is a beautiful one-piece Mesh featuring a cardigan style sweater over a pull-over styled one. Offered in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, it will fit your avy quite nicely. Take it from me, the man wearing his entire real life wardrobe as he shovels the driveway, two sweaters are way better than one! Reminds me of the time I was driving down Lee Highway and a police car came up next to me. I heard the cop’s voice say, “Pull over!” I was so happy, I turned so he could see better and said “And a cardigan too! Hi-5!” It is always nice when someone notices a great looking garment on you.

whc winter bd 01

I debated whether to include the free Beautiful Dangerous Menstuff hunt prize, the Danny Sweater in Paynes Gray in this post or not. Truthfully, were I not racing a certain power outage, I would hold it for another entry. Why? There certainly isn’t anything wrong with the quality or the styling of this great sweater. No, it is simply that I felt the picture does not show it off as well as I would have liked. This is a beautiful sweater, masculine and simply styled to go with almost anything. It appears to be made of lighter material than the heavier texture of the Rispetto sweater, making it perfect when the weather is a bit on the cool side rather than a snowy landscape in the above picture. This is a sipping-brandy-by-the-fire kind of sweater and, as such, is very well executed. It is offered in five sizes for a good fit, and is a welcome addition to my wardrobe. The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but Beautiful Dangerous has put their hunt item out for free!

All these sweaters would be excellent pick ups and very solid parts of a male avy’s wardrobe. Menstuff has been an excellent hunt for me so far, ranking as the very best in terms of ratio of items kept, versus items deleted. It truly is time to start doing hunts and snapping up some quality goodies! I just noticed that the sound of my teeth chattering reminds me of the old manual typewriter I used to have long ago. Oh the memories! For now I am off to shovel snow and chase any stray penguins out of my yard. Take care, and I’ll see you on the grid (as long as the power stays on)!—–WHC Riler
