Aloha peeps – glad you dropped by!
I’ve been blogging Menswear and Home Decor for… errr ahem X number of years and still really enjoy it! Feeds: Male Fashion Feed, Designing SL, Blogging SL. On Facebook & Flickr I belong to a plethora of Menswear and Decor groups and publish and link to this blog from those areas.
In addition, I’ve been features writer on ‘Love to Decorate’ magazine and from that interesting work, I’ve gleaned a lot of fascinating and useful information on the Home & Garden world of Second Life. I’ve also worked as a writer for various virtual Fashion and Lifestyle magazines – interviewed loads of fabulous Designers and Creatives – and even tried my hand at modeling – but nowadays I live the simple SL life which I enjoy with friends and family, not least of all my lovely partner & husband, Arrchie and our son, Danilo :)
I wouldn’t say I’m one of SL’s greatest photographers *smiles* but I can take good quality high resolution photographs and I’m a dab hand at Photoshop, so if you like my work please get in touch and I’ll promise to do your brand proud!
I went to check out the Monsieur Chic Event (held half yearly) and thought it was well set up and had lots of delicious designers. It was more than a tad expensive for me, though. The Gabriel jacket I would have scraped out my wallet for had all been sold, so I guess you need to get there promptly. A bit disappointed, I decided to go to the February round of FaMESHed to look at the Home & Garden offerings.
Walking around the centre vendors, by chance I happened to glance across at the Etham vendor which looked interesting. Not only was the ‘Diego Coat’ stylish, it was also very fairly priced. So I got the brown variety and was happy about it! There’s a number of coat colours and they all come with a texture change HUD for the inner top and the buttons with a great range of options. No doubt, I’ll be buying from Etham again.
Over to Men Only Monthly and I picked up V-Spot’s ‘Buckled Up Boots’. My goodness, these are smart! This is a middle shade and there are darker and lighter shades but the Event is on it’s last week of the current round, so don’t delay if you want a pair of these. Oh, the Ascend ‘Classic Cargos’ also have a version with suspenders/braces in the same pack. They fit very neatly into the boots!
Cute lapel brooch that has two versions, scripted on SL Time and non-scripted from GDit. This goes with a whole lot of clothes, you can move it around easily and it adds a bit of chic.
