Chillin’ on a Dirt Road

Chillin' on a Dirt Road

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you are finding some time for chillin’ this weekend.  Ripley and I decided to go for a long walk along this country lane on Sanctuary Isle.  Nothing relaxes me and makes me smile more than hanging out with my best pal.  Before we headed down this old road, we took a detour over to Tori’s Stylez to pick up the perfect outfit for a stroll in the country.  It’s a free gift for members of SL Frees &Offers group (which is free to join), but you do have to pay 1 Linden dollar first, which will be instantly refunded to you.

Such a Pretty Dusty Rose

Featuring a cozy cardigan vest, tank, jeans, a belt (not worn) and the long knotted necklace, the special edition Jina outfit was just what I was looking for.  I love the pinks and purples in the sweater and the fact that the package included not one, but two texture change HUDs for the tank top.  That gives you sixteen color options!  The faded blue jeans hugged my curves and had cuffs that tucked neatly into my boots without poking out at all.  You can wear the cardigan by itself, paired with the tank, or wear just the tank by itself – talk about versatility!  The long silver necklace provided just the right finishing touch.  Although there were no versions designed specifically for mesh avatars, I was able to get the ideal fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara HUD.  With the soft color combination and well worn jeans, I could definitely see myself wearing this outfit in RL as well as SL.  It’s sure to become one of my favorites!

What’s Included:

  • Light blue jeans in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5
  • Belt in Ash, Brown and Copper (not shown)
  • Cardigan & Tank Combo in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Cardigan by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Tank by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Texture change HUD #1 and #2 for the tank
  • Long Knot Necklace
  • Alpha for cardigan and tank
  • Alpha for cardigan
  • Alpha for tank
  • Alpha for jeans

We’re off to finish our walk before we head out for shopping round #2.  Until next time, happy chillin’!

“Smart Casual”

By the Sea_001

I found this cozy little spot for dining and listening to music — a cafe of sorts with live music and it’s all set over the sea. If you decide to visit just take a hop over to Isolotto di Garda. It’s got a ton of comfy chairs and a sort of nautical style and it’s all enclosed with glass so that you can see the docks and gulls in the harbor not far off.

The dress code is “smart casual” so I had to dig up something appropriate. I decided to hunt something down instead.

More Women’s Stuff!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt never disappoints me, and this time I took a hop to Tori’s Stylez and hunted down that little red t-shirt to pick up the gift there. The creator generously had the gift for the hunt set to 0L so my floral top with it’s tie front and uniquely styled sleeves was totally free!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – Large + a Curvy
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Revisiting Redeux.

To add a finishing touch to my outfit, I revisited the Redeux Event. You have until April 21st to pick up all of the many free gifts set out for you by the generous creators. I picked up this free necklace by On a Lark at their booth. It comes with a color change hud that changes the color of each little stone for lots of combinations, allowing me to get the necklace to match my shirt just perfectly!

In White

Tempt me.

I stopped by Tori’s Stylez because they tempted me with their free hunt gift offering for the Tie the Knot Hunt… I just couldn’t pass it up. Even if you aren’t planning on tying the knot, you just might want some free lingerie, after all!

What you get.

Hunt down the little ring box (there’s a clue where to look if you click the hunt icon at the entrance of the store) and you’ll get a free package of system layers and an omega applier for this pretty white lingerie.

It includes the ability to sort of mix and match so that you can wear different pieces and leave other pieces off. So if you want to wear the bra and panties only, you can! Want to wear the stockings and the bra? Covered! There is also a button to apply the entire lingerie outfit at once, if you don’t want it to be complicated to get all the pieces in the right spot 😉

Blinded by Love

Love is blind

My whole heart…

It is the day for love… a day when hearts open up and express their truest feelings. I’m keeping my gift simple today. No hearts or flowers, although I have given her many gifts over he past several days (free of course…shhh). But she will know that my gift comes from my whole heart. I found the You Have My Heart Wall Hanging by COVETED as a FREE gift at the Broken Heart Fair . Each booth has a gift available, but you need to hurry up, the fair closes on the 15th.

My whole life…

I found the AJ-#5 Red Outfit and the Aaron Necklace by Tori’s Stylez at the Menstuff Lounge. This is a FREE gift to members but has a joining fee of $50L. The Casey Boots are a FREE gift to members at A&D Clothing . The A&D group is FREE to Join.

Love is blind…

Finally, Addams has put out a FREE gift to it’s members. The Aurora Blindfold comes with a resizer and color change HUD for both the blindfold and the lettering. I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day… I know I will!

A Nip in the Air

Tori Stylez -Tyson Sweater1

Black Bagging it

I’m back from doing some Black Friday shopping and have some things to show you. I real life I do the majority of my holiday purchases online, so in theory, I’m sticking with that tradition here as well. 🙂 On a tip from Kathryn, my first stop was at Adam & Eve. I picked up the Male Mesh Body for 1/2 price ($1475L) on the Black Friday Sale. A HUD  is included to apply alpha layers to select body parts and a color changer to match your skin tone. No, I didn’t get a mesh head, I can’t give up my face just yet.

Being a Lounge Lizard

I swung by one of my old groups to check out the new (to me) gifts. I picked up several items from the MenStuff Lounge and took an instant liking to the Tori’s Stylez Tyson Hoodie & Dee Black Dress Pants. This is FREE to group members and only $50L to join the group. With the amount of gifts available, it is well worth the lindens to join.

Putting a Lid on It

I thought I’d try my hand at picking out some updated hair at Dura. Instead, I picked up an old group gift that Love blogged here. The Valentine’s Day Hair and Cap is unisex. A texture change HUD is included for five different color combinations for both the hair and the cap and it is resizable.  The Dura group is FREE to join. I decided to go blonde today, but not quite sure I’m a blonde at heart…

DURA GG Valentine Hair with Cap1

Posing Questions

I was lucky and found some new poses from Poses With Attitude on the Fall ’16 MenStuff Hunt. There is still a few days left on this hunt and all items are $0L-$1L. Now with my holiday shopping done, I can kick back and enjoy the rest of the holiday season….Oh look! New sales notices!!!!!

Easy To Warm Up To

Flamable

It’s getting colder and with the chill air moving in, I was pleased to score some men’s outerwear FREE that was a hot, hot deal. If you stop by Tori’s Stylez, you too can pick up the Tod Denim Hoodie Jacket in Black.

This is a mesh coat in all the standard sizes, which also includes a good alpha layer as well as a bonus system layer tank top if you want to use it (shown in the picture above as well). You’ll need to don your SL Frees & Offers Group tag to snag the gift, but the group is FREE to join, making this an item for your inventory that won’t cost you a single Linden. That is a deal easy to warm up to.

This Is An 80’s Take On Me.

80's1

Hello again all my radical readers! I’m totally channeling the 80’s today. I was born in the 80’s, so was really too young to appreciate them while in them. Now though, I love everything about that decade, and when I received the Midnight Mania board gift from Tori’s Stylez, I was transported back in time. Do you like my A-Ha inspired picture? *grins*

80's3

OK, now that you all have seen a picture that really shows what I’m wearing, let me tell you about it. My super cute dress, and thigh-high boots are what you will get if the Midnight Mania board over at Tori’s Stylez gets it’s required 75 slaps. The Shirazz dress in pink is mesh, and comes in the standard SL sizes, as well as several mesh body sizes. It also has a texture change hud for that little striped peekaboo part of the dress, with loads of colour choices. The Sammi boots are also mesh, and come in sizes for several mesh bodies, but none specifically for standard SL avs. However, I found for my standard medium shape, the Isis sized boots fit perfectly! As if that wasn’t enough, there is also a set of grey panties included, both clothing layer, and through an omega applier. I know right! So much, and all for free 🙂

80's2

Naturally, I needed some jewelry, and it couldn’t be typical, it needed to be fun! While opening up the many gifts that I grabbed from the Liaison Collaborative‘s 3rd Anniversary round, I came across the simple, but totally not boring, necklace and earring set from Lybra. You get both a gold and silver set of these, and I think they are just the right amount of funky to live up to the 80’s image. Not everything has to be big, bold and neon coloured to pull off this look. This jewelry is free, and the Liaison Collaborative is open until March 30th, so if you haven’t been yet, you still have time!

My last addition is the pretty skin I have on. It is the current free group gift from AlterEgo for the Toxxic Design Studios group. Now, this group does have a L$500 join fee, but this is the second group gift I’ve gotten from them since I joined, with more to come, so I think it’s a small price to pay. Ayla comes in the rose tone, and if you need appliers, they are conveniently located underneath the poster, each for a small fee. I think the cat’s eye eyeshadow is perfect.

OK, before I head out, just wanted to give a shout out to my picture location. Sometimes it’s really hard to find a locale that works with whatever look I’ve put together, but I was lucky with Joystick’s Arcade. There is no denying its decade 😛 Most of the arcade games are even playable! If you love the 80’s, or arcades, you need to go take a look.

That’s it for me! I shall leave you all with my title 80’s song, you know you’ll want to sing along. Until I see you all again, TTFN!

Totally Wigging Out At The Hair Fair!

72113trendy 3_001

The Hair Fair. Guys, unless you live in a cave (if you do, I am coming over to watch ESPN and drink beer) you know it’s a big deal on Second Life. All month there has been a traffic jam as avies crowded, pixel against pixel, to see what the best hair creators on Second Life had to show off, and what freebies they set out to lure us in. Well, now things have gotten a bit less crowded and the level of lag is much more comfortable, so it’s a great time for us guys to go have a look. Most of the free items available at Hair Fair are for female avies, but there are some male and unisex hairs offered plus a hat or two for you to discover. Finding quality male hair as a freebie is quite a challenge, so I wouldn’t miss an opportunity like this if I were you.

My favorite men’s item I found at The Hair Fair this year is offered as a FREE gift from Exile @ Hair Fair. Part of the Jack And Jill Hair Fair Gift, Jack is a stylish modern cut with the top of the head covered by a mesh piece, and the sides and back covered by a hairbase. A unique aspect of this hairbase is that it is offered in 3 hues, and you may manually tint all three of them to get just the match you are looking for. On my avy, I resized the top mesh portion a bit smaller until I got the look I wanted. This is a fatpack and has tons of colors offered in a hud based system. Exile @ Hair Fair gives you everything you need to get it looking perfect for your avi. That’s extraordinary for a FREE men’s hair.

I, much like many guys on Second Life, wear black often. By often, I mean all the time and in every shade imaginable! That’s why I grinned ear to ear when I saw this denim shirt and jacket set from Tori’s Stylez at Retail Therapy! Yes, that is a bit of fuchsia, Fabbies, but no worries. It won’t bite. The Ewan SE- Fuchsia Black Jacket & T-Shirt is a brilliant bit of color while catering to our very masculine addiction to black. Tori’s Stylez at Retail Therapy offers this one-piece garment in five sizes for easy fitting. It is a 10L hunt prize on The Summer Hunt 2015. You are looking for a very small brightly colored star. This is a darned fine looking hunt prize, I hope you enjoy it.

* Guitar and in my case musical talent not included *

Another fantastic FREE gift at The Hair Fair is this long hair offering from Asset @ Hair Fair! The Miracle Hair comes in a fatpack of colors and uses a hud system to change them. Also worth noting: it comes with a set of six head alphas to help make your head invisible under the hair. It is an interesting way to handle that, and I think I will probably be able to use the alphas on other outfits as well. So, it’s a great bonus feature! The hair itself is mesh and has a true rock and roll look! So much so, that once I had it on, I had to run out and buy a guitar! The fit on my head shape took a bit of fiddling to perfect, and I like to wear a hairbase as well, so I added one under it for a finishing touch. If you like long hair this is a must pick up!

I could have worn black leather, but I knew you would be expecting it now that I am a rock star. I decided to switch it up with a very nice FREE Group gift jacket from SZD Fashion. The Leather Jacket in Light Brown caught my eye not simply for the brown tones in it, but rather for the distinct olive tones. The overall texture appears dark but look closer. You will see the nicely balanced tones are very pleasing and give you a wide range of color options when matching it with your other clothes. Another surprising feature of this jacket is that you get it in two sizes of Fitmesh! I don’t have much Fitmesh yet, but this jacket fit me perfectly when I slipped it on. Kudos to SZD Fashion for making a great fit easy!

It has been quite a fun day, from the hustle and bustle of a very successful Hair Fair event, to getting so excited over a FREE hair that I bought a guitar and nearly went on tour! Oh! Time to start saving for a tour bus! Have fun everyone and since I rarely tell you this, then I should say it again: Thank you for letting me do what I love at a level I always aspired to. Take care and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler
