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

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. We have a nice surprise for the gentlemen today. Amazing Creations has given us a “two for the price of one” hunt prize appropriately enough for the Surprise Hunt. This is the ‘Casual 5’ shirt one of the two prizes you can get for just 3L and a little hunting.  The shirts both come in two versions, one with the ‘doubled’ long sleeve look and one with simple regular short sleeves. Perfect for this time of year when the weather can be warm one day and cool the next.

The Surprise Hunt runs until April 30th which is creeping closer rather quickly. So don’t delay too long or the surprise will be all gone.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Fitmesh – XS – XL
  • Nardcotix David
  • Signature Gianni
  • SLink Male
  • TMP

Good afternoon, FabFree Readers.  Though it may be afternoon at least in my part of the Grid… I am getting ready for the weekend nights. And the 50L Fridays sale is setting me up just perfectly. If you are unaware of this every Friday sale, you can see all the details here.

Let’s start at the top with the top. This is the ‘Tobias’ tank from Butterscotch and it’s the 50L special today. It only comes in the black but, if you wait till tomorrow you can pick one up in blue for the Saturday Sale. I prefer the darker colors so I don’t need to wait around. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
    Signature Gianni
    Legacy

 My new slacks are also just 50L today from one of my favorite designers: AsteroidBox.  These are the ‘Jordan’ pants and they come in a Unisex pack to include ladies sizes. Each leg can be colored separately to make your own style stand out. The metal zippers color can also be changed. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake  + Freya
  • Legacy Male + Female
  • Maitreya

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)

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. What a week it’s been and I can say I am rather relieved that we have finally come to the weekend. And when this weekend brings time for the Harmony Hunt and some very nice men’s wear… it’s all the more welcome.

For the uninitiated, the Harmony Hunt happens each month from the 15th till the 30th and featured prizes set at 10L each. Of course, the February round runs till the 28th but I’m sure that is not surprise. 😉 Happily there always seems to be several designers offering men’s wear for us each month. This round, I was lucky enough to find a New-To-Me designer; Game & Starke.

Game & Starke is offering us a  “Valentines Day” themed Hunt including the “Red Shirt” and “Black Pants” I’m wearing here. There are also many other prizes for the ladies in the hunt.  You simply hunt down the huge red hearts scattered throughout the store and for 10L, it’s yours.  The designers have set up a poster at the landing point showing all the prizes and the number for each prize’s heart. Which is much appreciated!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Physique Male

Black Heart

Black Heart

Good evening, Fab Readers. If you ever wonder what the bloggers here on ‘the Fab’ go through for you… wonder no more. I have braved the Valentines Day Shop & Hop for you.  I may be seeing pink and my ears ringing with love songs for days. But there was men’s wear to be had… so I prevailed. 😉

I found a very unusual shirt as the free gift for Reinvent and ended up rather liking it. This is the “Black Heart long sleeve” and yes… it’s sheer. Good thing I was at the gym earlier. The heart shape on the chest reads “Black Black Heart” and it may accurately describe how a lot of people feel about this holiday. The shirt is very well made and the details are spot on. Be sure to stick around and check out the Reinvent booth… there are some very nice things for sale.

The Valentines Day Shop & Hop runs until Feb. 15th so don’t delay.

  • Belleza Jake

Greetings, Fabulous Readers. As I may have mentioned in the past, I am continuously amazed at the generosity and good will shown by our very own Fab Designers. They surprise and delight us all the time. If you haven’t visited their shops, I highly encourage you to do so and even say a quick “Thank You” if you are so inclined. I’ll start with my own rousing “Thank You!” to Rea for this latest FabFree Group Gift: A 500L Gift Card!

You read that correctly, 500L to spend any way you wish in the Rea main shop. If you aren’t familiar with this designer, this gift is good for both men AND woman. Rea has an excellent selection of both sides of the closet, if you will.

I found this nice casual but not a Tee shirt out fit, “Henry” today and used only half of my Gift Card. I still have plenty to go back and pick another outfit… or shoes… or jeans…  Rea has it all. To make matters even better, Henry comes with the black jeans I’m wearing, the top and a HUD for three styles of the top. Very versatile indeed. 

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – S – L
  • FitMesh – 2 versions

Simply wear your FabFree Group tag and grab you gift card. One note, the vendor requires you to pay 1L but you will receive it back immediately.  Rea also has a free to join Group and many past gifts to choose from as well as Midnight Mania boards and lucky chairs.

Vino Rosso

Vino Rosso

I’m not a big drinker in either my 1st or 2nd life (lol).  I’m always that person who takes a sip and thinks “ugh…tastes like alcohol”.  Yes, I am a charlatan.  So sue me!  Once in a while, though – something I try tastes not horrible, and I am surprised.  So, I’m pretending that this bottle of wine is a bottle of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.  Perhaps I’m not such a charlatan after all!

A Bit of Candy

If you’re in the Candy Kitten group (which is currently 400L to join), you may have noticed that there’s a new group gift out:  this cute Valentine’s Day dress plus matching shrug.  I love all the details – the lacing, the buckles on the arms, the hearts… it’s a special look for when you’re trying to surprise someone special (or if you’re really into looking special for yourself).   I know the group join is a little steep, but there are regular gifts, PLUS there’s currently 300L in store credit on the wall by the lucky boards which will make up most of your join fee just like that!  Yay!

A Tipple

Once in a while, Since1975 sends out a really fun (and free) subscriber gift.  I love when I kind of forget that I’ve subscribed to something and then boom – little blue notification in the corner reminding me that I am loved!  Ha!  Since1975 is one of those subscribos that don’t send you incessant news, and then poof – a gift!  They sent out this very cool wine bottle, that inspired me to write this post.  To get yours, click on the subscriber unit at the store, and it should be delivered to you imminently.  If that doesn’t work for you for some reason, you can also join their group for free and grab the gift, plus loads of other fun items too.

Enjoy your day, FabFree!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Good evening FabFree! I hope the first day of 2022 has come and gone by with nothing but good stuff for you. Gabe and I started our 2022 much like we started 2021: with coffee first and nonsense after. ( Or during thanks to Dixie) So much happened in 2021… and 2020 , I know it’s left us with some hard feelings. But I made a promise to myself and my little family here. I will not lose hope for better things and try to be one of those better things for the people n my life.

So HAPPY NEW YEAR my FabFree Family! Gabe and I wish you all every blessing and every happiness in this year stretching out before us.

Good morning, FabFree. I could not think of a better way to start the day, or the week in this case, than another men’s prize for the FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt. While you still have until the 30th of the month to gather up your prizes, we are coming down to the wire. So let’s not waste time and get right to it.

NoShot is a designer I was unfamiliar with before the Hunt and I am pleased to have been introduced. Their shop is filled with some very nice designs for both men and women. In fact, they have provided  hunt prizes for the ladies too.  The men’s prizes are the new unique sweater and the low cowboy boots I’m showing here. And I am certainly very happy to add both to my closet. Especially since the sweater is only 1L and the boots are free!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Fitmesh
  • Signature
  • SLink

Boots are unrigged and modifiable.
