Gambit

Gambit 1

Big events throw their shadows over the grid and finally the summer break seems to be gone for good. Looking forward to Vintage Fair? OMG me also, cause all the hip stuff will be there. Think about the new RL and SL fashion hype Boho which comes more or less from the 70ies. Or men in suits that never went out of date. As bizarre as it sounds – the Vintage Fair is one of the top state of the art fashion events this autumn.

One of the things you can find at the Vintage Fair is the HIS52card Pick Up Pose with the vintage cards. And excuse my geekish moment of the day: don’t you think I look like Gambit from the X-Men? I simply love it and it is a brilliant pose for taking pictures with. In general HISpose never fail to surprise me with witty ideas.

Let’s talk about the outfit: the black mesh blazer is from Ilaya and is the mens item at LIMITED BAZAAR. It comes as plain version (worn here) and also with t-shirt in many different sizes and alpha layer. The Kuk black jeans and the wonderful detailed Otis Oxford shoes come from MIAMAI and are the latest mesh releases for men. The trousers are well made and I especially love the fabric on them. And the Otis Oxfords are just a piece of art. The texturing is flawless – they just look so real.

Cheesecake

Weekend boys and girls – and even better: A new exhibition in the Gallery Gift Shop. And like always you find also this time some wonderful and quirky items there. The Gallery Gift Shop is now in its 12th round – that means: end of this new exhibition the art and sale fair is one year old! Not bad for secondlife where you can literally watch sales events come and go.

Today I am wearing the contribution from 22769 ~ casual couture for the GGS. Some mesh slim cut chefron jeans and a special edition of the mesh open shirt and tee combination. The matching glasses come from {Kiro} and are also a find at the GGS.

I am having a little pre-celebration for the 1 year anniversary of the Gallery Gift Shop with some home made cheesecake. The cheesecake comes from +9 who finally have an inworld store with neat little things. You definitely should check this store out if you need something like sushi plates, a watermelon bowl, cute sandals or hats – it is a bit of everything and very japanese (I guess) but adorable. And – the cheesecake i.e. is completely free.

The art in the background is one of my favorite pieces of Gabrielle Swindlehurst who is also a contributor at the Gallery Gift Shop. She provides astonishing art from exhibition to exhibition and it is also not that pricy. If you are looking for something decorative for your home – you MUST go to the Gallery Gift Shop because it is all there. Finally the furniture comes from Designer Prims. The carpet has 14 different textures on touch – you can change it whatever matches your room best. The sofas have splendid reasonable animations which made me giggle when I tested them – and you even can change the textures of the pillows and the sofas.

Gentleman on the beach

Gentleman 1

Lately there are brilliant events for guys. We all know about the Narcissus Room already – but there is a new kid in town called the Mens Dept. And you can find great deals for men here and a fantastic bunch of men fashion designer with new and limited releases also. What can I say? It is about time that events take care of the male avatars.

Nearly everything I wear in this picture comes from the Mens Dept. including the mesh pants and the mesh tank top. Did I say this already? Mesh for men is hitting the grid hard finally. So it is time for you to update your virtual wardrobe gentlemen.

Meet me at the beach

Meet me at the beach 1

Okay – the weather is brilliant but it is definitely not good enough for a beach party. But in SL it is always summer somewhere and so I went for a beachy kind of look today. The reason therefor are the accessories like the picnic basket, the watermelon and the can I am wearing. I stumbled across a store called +9 (add9) on the marketplace who offers the watermelon and also the check can for free there. So I tried to check the store out inworld. But I failed since +9 does not seem to have a store right now. I checked with the +9 group and found even groupgifts there like the picnic basket – well and that made my look.

Anyways – Gabriel just released their new mesh items for men. In this picture I am wearing the Mesh Tee you can grab at the store for only 1 Linden. Good deal? nope – even better: The tee comes in different colors also – and everything for just 1 L$. This smells like the steal of the week gentlemen!
