So...What Are You Wearing?

Today I have a nice combo of various items for a well balanced upper class summer outfit.

Up top is one of the recent releases called Chris Casual (300 per 3 tone pack 1950 for all 39) hair and hat combo from MADesigns that I think just about any man can get into. The hat can be set to three positions and there are a wealth of tones available to choose from. Each tone is a very fair price for a slight three tone hair variation and the option of three different colors for the included hat. All and all a nice little package for looking your best.

As a top for this outfit I choose one of the many many versions of the Whippet & Buck Mark Long Sleeve Henley (60L per color or 900L for 16 color packs) shown here in peach.

I could not believe just how many colors of this were available (there were a total of 32) and at a very low price each for the quality of each shirt.

The three buttons are nice looking and well detailed and the texture of the overall top looks soft to the touch with a pronounced grid grain much like that of a long john night shirt. Pick a color out today and I promise you won't regret it.

Another very well matched item available while shopping at Whippet & Buck are the Harris Tartan (150L per tone or 1200 for all 8) shorts shown here in West Coast. There are four tartan versions and four tones of a more slack like looking short. The textures all look realistic on whichever you choose.

I found the prims to work well and there are both a large and small verison available so that you should be able to fit a good variety of avatar sizes in and may even fit the thinner female population of the grid.

To put a final cap on this outfit I chose to go with the Kalnins Earthshine (500L) sandal which as you can see has a very well detailed texture and an unusual and unique design different from any other sandal I have seen all summer.

Since every piece of the sandal is available for editing in the easily scripted hud you can make a ton of different various color combos and your own personal look to finish of just about any and every summer outfit you could think of. It is very hard to match this sort of quality with this amount of options in all the grid.

Private Parts

So I had to work last night and I may be a bit tired this morning, but there was no way I was not going to get off my rump and cover the private sale going on now for This Is A Fawn and Epoque. This sale will only continue until Sunday and all items will be retired once the sale is over.

When I came home for my 2am lunch hour things had just kicked off and there were plenty of great sights and beautiful people hanging out to have a look and take advantage of the limited and preview releases available.

As you can see from my quickly taken photos OMGWTF Barbecue did not just toy around with making some unique and creative designs available for you to rush in and get your hands on.

The prices are amazing for the quality of work and if you saw my post yesterday I suspect that each of the female items will all impress that get down there and snag them all up. Two tops and two dresses all easily affordable and ready to wear.

Vintage McMillan's Epoque line showcased the other half of the limited sale releases and pieced together from both you could easily walk away with an entire fresh and fashionable outfit.

As you can see there are some new pieces of jewelry available each with stylish appeal and a careful attention to each detail and creativity in the pieces design. A nice variety to choose from will make it simple to walk away with at least one new piece for your collection.

Another suprise promo release that you can feast your eyes on while there are the Promo Heels to highlight the upcoming Epoque shoe line.

They have a nice shaping and a good looking texture that makes me wonder if we males may be lucky enough to get a release or two once the full range of shoes are placed on the racks. There are two versions of the release available at the sale in simple yet perfect black and white and both come with the same creative reversed texturing.

Join either group for This Is A Fawn or Epoque to be given the exclusive LM

So...What Are You Wearing?

I have started to realize that I am sort of sitting on my hands and not getting nearly enough posting done. There are a ton of new products on the grid and though I haven't been quite as well off with all of the charity work going on recently, it did not mean that I was not out shopping.

First up some great recently released Honig Glasses (150L) from Gritty Kitty. They come scripted with a great variety of tinted lenses perfect for photo taking as you can get the reflection of say a city or simply browsing for porno shown in them.

Another even newer then new item that was recently dropped to me from none other then OMGWTF Barbecue of This Is A Fawn is this very comfy looking Ira sweater.

The texture is smooth and simple and not only does it seem very realistic it was all completely drawn by hand. I can't give many details on this item just yet as it is only the beta version and many variations in color or options may be added or removed before the proper release. As far as I know this may be included in the secret sale coming up soon for group subscribo members.

The new Ransom Standard Jeans are from a shop I recently stumbled upon after viewing Trevor Turner's blog.

The shop is called Chinese Takeout and if you rush in there today everything is on sale for only 50L but the sale will end on the 24th so time is fleeting. There are a nice variety of this jean ripped or not as well as some great tops to be found and all at the great low price. The cuffs are nice and large and are easy to fit over whichever shoe you may wear as well as only needing simple light tinting to match up nicely.

A shoe I honestly did not get nearly enough use out of but wish I had was the Urban Bomb Unit Drunks. It is not that I had something against the product. It has tons of variations embedded in the scripts to make many great combinations in any way you see fit.

It was that for me I just couldn't wear them with a lot of my favorite pants without them wanting to peek through the cuffs or having to high water them up and distort the look of the pants. However if this is not a problem for you this shoe will provide tons of bang for your buck.

So...What Are You Wearing?

Today I have a a bit of a quick outfit tossed together mainly to give you a peek at various different things coming from a couple of shops I will be highlighting soon.

The hair today is from Uncleweb and I have to be honest, I didn't originally get that into this shop but there are a really a nice variety of new looking styles for men like Stewart (210L per tone) there and it grew on me over time as I took a chance and saw how they worked with my avatar. Have a look they may look great on you as well.

A shop that will definately be getting it's own feature soon is the new and as far as I know relatively unknown Nu given to us by Nuit Wonder.

On a morning shopping jaunt not long ago I was pushed into his store by one Miabella Foxley who said it was the place to be for the fashionable male. Since then he has added to his collection and she couldn't have been more right. This Cuffs Shirt (180L per color) shown in GrapeDot is of the finest quality as are the rest of the clothing there. Go, Look, Now!

Another shop that is an absolute must see is Whippet & Buck. To say the least there is a nice variety of clothing available for men. Very nice tops and bottoms are available and if the quality of them are any sign of the future I see many other must have male items coming out there soon.

Shown here are the Boyd Dress Trousers (140L per tone) in Outer Space and they are one of the most realistic textured pair of slacks I have seen on the grid. Nothing on the racks will dissapoint and the prices are fair so go crazy.

A fun little treat I wound up stumbling on while perusing possible locations for the current Starlust Photo Contest was this hip little Chug-a-lug mug (150L) from END.

If you know me, you know I do enjoy a good cup (2-3 pots) of coffee a day and so this well made and scripted cup was a no brainer to acompany through the grid while shopping. It has six available textures included as well as the option for tea, coffee, or a nice dark black coffee as well as resize to fit any of your caffiene needs.

So Where Are You Shopping?

If you haven't had a chance to make it buy the great build for OMGWTF Barbecue's new mainstore you should definately stop in and have a peek as the shop itself is a sight to be seen and the items all carry a mark of quality.

There are a nice selection of clothing items for both men and women spread around her new nautical themed shop as well as some hand made art to help spice up wherever you may live as well as a couple of new releases for the ladies.

As well as providing interesting new content for you to spend your hard earned lindens on her shop also offers a nice bit of scenery.

The build is a ship being attacked by a sea monster and there a nice amount of rest areas and photo ops. Whether you have an urge to be tangled in a tentacle or just relaxing with a glass of wine in an inner tube there is plenty of shopping and fun to be had here as well as some fun shots for the current Starlust photo contest going on right this moment.

She also took the time to add in one of everyone's favorite attractions. While being the usual run of the mill board based on the first letter of your name the items inside are actual various items from the shop itself.

Cute and well made items for nothing more then a few moments of your time and you don't even have to take your clothes off or call some big sweaty old bald man daddy.

So...What Are You Wearing?

Today I wanted to feature another bit of a man in pink outfit and I was lucky to find a few nice things around to add to its flair.

First up the new Fedora Hat "Natural Mid" (250L) from Argrace that is available at the hair fair. A very fair price for both a great looking hair and a nice contribution to Locks Of Love. It has a very smooth shape and a nice number of scripted color combo options for the hat itself. Though you must fight the lag to get it it is well worth the trip out.

The next item up is a new slick looking sheer top from Zanzo called the Persian Sheer Shirt (130L per color or 520L for the pack) shown here in pink though there are five different tones to choose from with various designs on each.

Also since I went with a sheer top I thought this would be a good time to display a new tattoo from Devol called Crow Message To Earth (280L). It has a well drawn upper body covering design that pays very close attention to detail with its verses covering the majority of your chest and back.
I can't get enough of the various male pants from Style Starts Here. From nice looking slack type pants to some of the best looking jeans on the grid there are plenty of choices for men looking to cover their business.

The pair shown today are the white version of the Deep Pocket Cargos (125L per color). There is a large selection of twelve different colors of pants and at this affordable price it would be plenty easy to fill up the old closet with them. Stylish and well shaded to make for a snug fit should put these on any fashionable males shopping list.

Another older yet made for summer release that I just can't stop wearing are the Detour Flip Flops (400 per pair or 1500 for all five plus a bonus color in a scripted version) shown here in white. While a bit pricey especially for a flip flop they will serve you well at many a beach gathering or a down south BBQ.
There are a few different color choices so bring a hefty wallet and get primed and ready for all of your summer needs. If nothing else they will give you a perfect chance to show off those old school non prim web toes we have all come to know and love.
