One Night in Bangkok

One Night in Bangkok

Looking for a match…

I’m still looking for my perfect match…. I’m of course talking about a mesh head to call my very own. I search, I try the demo, I add skin appliers … and I’m still searching. Someday I will get my very own head… someday….

I found today’s outfit at the Menstuff Lounge. PowerDesign has put on the board  the Rick Outfit as a free group gift. The three piece outfit comes with a cruiser jacket with shirt and tie, jeans and oxford shoes. There is a one time $50L joining fee for the Menstuff group, but with the amount of gifts on the wall, how could you pass it up.

And so my quest continues…

Dinos in the Hood

Vero Modero

 

Back to Jurassic Park…

When I got to work on Monday, I was greeted by my computer trashing my user profile sometime over the weekend. For most of the morning, I was frantically trying to recover my desktop while attempting to conduct business as usual through pre-technology solutions. I was this close to breaking out a stone tablet and a chisel….

So it is only fitting I wear my Dino Hoodie I found at Vero Modeo as part of the Into the Blue Hunt. This black-scaled and red hoodie comes in the standard mesh XS-XL sizes. The extra large size works great if to want to put it over an existing outfit like my A&D Clothing Matt T-shirt and James Jeans (not free). All the hunt gifts on the Into the Blue Hunt, which runs through March 29th, are just $1L each.  Now get out there and get chomping….

Seeking Sunshine

Horr

Blue skies and fields of green…

It has been a dark and dreary winter. Mostly overcast, but not much snow, which, btw is not normal for my neck of the woods. Atfer receiving a few inches of powder, I have decided to seek out some sunshine and green meadows here in Second Life instead. Today’s look come by way of Horr Menswear. The Bridgeport Set is part of the For Him Hunt 3. The brown shirt and jeans combination is a perfect casual look for a  hike or lounging around on a blanket with that special someone. The For Him Hunt gifts are all just $1L each. My advice for the day… take a walk, get some sun and breathe in some fresh air.

Where the Streets Have No Name

For Him Hunt

A Hunting We Will Go…

After sleeping in… (my phone wouldn’t stop beeping last night, or in my case knocking) I took Angel out, started coffee and decided I was going to get a jump on finding the gifts in the For Him Hunt 3. But only after a few stores, the lag monster jumped up and bit me square in the … well you know. (What has been up with the lag this weekend anyhow?) But, I was able to at least put one outfit together before my world wouldn’t rez around me. The For Him Hunt 3 begins today and runs through the end of February.

Getting Jiggy and TrAsHeD …

My jacket is from Get Jiggy, one of the stops on the For Him Hunt. The Alex Leather Jacket w/Shirt comes with a texture HUD where you can change the jacket to seven different colors and the shirt has nine colors to choose from. Each gift on the hunt costs $1L, but I dare you to find such a versatile jacket any cheaper. I also found the Rush Jeans at TrAsHeD, before my hunting was shut down do to “technical difficulties”.  The jeans come in sizes for the following body types: Adam, Aesthetic, Slink, TMP and in sizes XS-XL . Unable to continue, I looked in my bag of free goodies and found the Casey Boots, a FREE group gift at A&D Clothing to complete my look. I can’t wait to get back out there and find more great gifts on this hunt!

 Walking that extra mile…

Before I head back out on the hunt, I wanted to give a shout out to nixi12345 over at Places In SecondLife with a Tiny Pinch of Fashion  for reminding me that The Missing Mile Sim still exists. Back in the day, (Gawd, that makes me sound old…) I took many photographs there, for both FabFree and my personal collection. Thanks nixi!

A Silly Little Thing Called Love

Silly

Inspiring the uninspired…

While I was rummaging through my folder of items yet to post, I came across the latest FREE group gift from Signature Pose. Silly is a couples pose, so I called up Love, who was feeling uninspired by her own photo shoot, and she came over (after stopping for an outfit of her own to show).  The Signature Pose Group is FREE to join.

What she’s wearing…

Love wanted me to make sure I talked about her outfit. She even wrote it down for me so I wouldn’t forget. (tl:dr  I lost the notecard and is going to wing it.) The Brigit Top & Capris by Rowena’s Designs is a FREE group gift to SLF&O members. I do remember Love mentioning that there is a texture changing HUD for both the tank top and the crop top. The SLF&O group is FREE to join.

What he’s wearing…

There is a new gift out in the Menstuff Lounge. The Mesh Spilled Paint Open Hoodie by Ruca Tease is FREE to Menstuff members. The hoodie comes in sizes XS- XL. The group does have a $50L join fee.  I hope everyone takes a moment today to feel inspired and be silly.

Honesty of Morning

Vero Modero - A&D

 Fresh Start…

Have you ever experienced that time of day where the world’s troubles are far away and you have that “inner peace” in the first light of the new day. That time before all the doubts and worries creep back into your mind, or the first of many disasters hit you in the face like a ton of bricks? I usually find that place when I’m taking Angel out for a morning stroll or checking on the horses. Today I’m getting a fresh start, at least until something falls off the ceiling…  Speaking of fresh starts, there is still time to find the Brandon Brown Fur Coat, part of the Fresh Start Hunt at Vero Modero. This jacket comes with and without the shirt to make the style your own. Each item in the Fresh Start Hunt costs just $1L each. The hunt lasts until February 12th.

Don’t put your foot in it….

I found my footwear choice, the Ash Boots at A&D Clothing. This is one of several FREE group gifts members can enjoy. Also the group is FREE to join. While I was at A&D, I found the Will Pants. These set me back $199L, but you can enjoy the whole fatpack for $1299L. Now it’s time to face the many disasters awaiting me today. At least I found a little inner peace before the world gets in my way…

Cupid’s Arrow

Vero Modero

When love knocks, answer the door…

There is less than two weeks until Valentine’s Day. I hope you all have a special someone to gaze dreamily into their eyes this holiday. But if you don’t, there is still time to find someone. And if you want to look dashing and ready for Cupid’s arrow, stop by Vero Modero and look for the Where’s Cupid Hunt gift. The Red Ascot Suit can be yours for just $1L if you can find the hunt item. (seriously. it’s easy… I even found it). You’ll have no trouble getting targeted by the ladies with this look. Go get ’em, Tiger!

Don’t Overthink It

Snapshot_019

Kiss this…

So often, we over think the trivial things… replaying conversations out in our head, looking for that hidden meaning that isn’t there or never intended. Over thinking actions, when the least benign and most obvious answer is usually right. And over thinking our wardrobe seems to be a major problem, especially in Second Life. I’ve always tried to live by the KISS rule, Keep It Simple Stupid (at least when it comes to clothes, I’m an overachieving  over-thinker in other aspects). And hopefully I’ve done that with today’s ensemble.

It all starts with a good foundation…

Normally, my footwear choice is an afterthought to the clothing choices I make. But today’s look began with the shoes. I heard there was a new group gift at PREY. The Men’s Red Deck Shoes is a FREE group gift to members and the PREY group is FREE to join. I have a feeling I’ll be getting some mileage out of these shoes before Valentine’s Day is over.

Spend a little, get a lot….

I try and live as FabFree as possible, but sometimes you have to spend a little to get the most mileage out of your wardrobe. When I was out skateboarding last weekend, I saw the Oscar Mesh Shirt at A&D Clothing. This shirt very much my RL style and thought about buying one shirt ($199L). But after investigating the HUD driven fatpack that comes with 12 shirts and 6 exclusive shirts that are not sold separately, I was sold on the set. It put me back $1299L but now, I have over a half a month’s worth of shirts that I don’t repeat on the colors. It’s all about the versatility…

Mixin’ up the ‘stuff

Since my return, I’ve noticed that free and inexpensive shirts are in abundance, but free pants are sorely lacking. Sometimes you have to mix and match free gifts to achieve the look you’re going for. I picked up the Casual Red Plaid Outfit by 69 Park Ave at the Menstuff Lounge and “borrowed” the pants for this look.  While I was at the Menstuff Lounge, I decided to accessorize with the Heavy Leather Bullet Turquoise Bracelet provided by GLINT. Both these gifts are FREE to members but it does cost $50L to join the group.

So now I’m ready to grab an early burger and beer with the guys and be home in time to surprise her for some Netflix and chill. (I’m on a two beer limit, not repeating New Year’s Eve EVER again).
