Keep Holding On

Thanks to Bastien Berboral for suggesting SwaggedOut to join the talented ranks of BlackLiquid bloggers! Dark and beautiful, these makeps, hairstyles and accessories will challenge me to go a bit more couture with some of my looks. Please, feel free to lend your feedback and tell me how I’m doing!

First up, Jayden and I have tackled a few new items from BlackLiquid that can be seen at several events around the grid. The markings on my face are separate and available at the Cosmetics Fair until Oct. 30th. Then I added a bit of color to my SLink nails. Try your luck with Lybra’s “If you’ve got it Haunt it” 13 day Halloween Fair Hunt!

P.S. Jayden ALWAYS finishes her posts before I do. I’m such a slowpoke. Lol

Don’t you just love my blog post titles? I swear, I had no earthly idea what to name this one. Anyways, I have some new swag coming at you from theACAPULCOgold. This college jacket is a nice fit for pretty much any look. It comes in a variety of colors and includes a HUD that allows for you to change the color of the sleeves. Go grab it!

Stache This!

I sure hope everyone’s saved up their lindens because tomorrow, August 9, marks the beginning of Round 2 of The Thrift Shop, presented by Depraved Nation. Now if you were new to SecondLife or living under a rock during the first run, let me paint this picture for you. Imagine a warehouse filled with aisles upon aisles of eye-catching trends. Yeah, it’s like two Super Walmarts of stuff! WITH GACHAS! You will be broke, I assure you. Run out and DJ, host, build, upload your RL weekly earnings, etc. because you will need them.

Throughout the month of August, I will be sharing with my Swagsters just a hint of what can be found at The Thrift Shop. Below, I’ve pictured some awesome glasses with mustache attached from Forever Young, available in various colors, and one of three tattoos released by ZENTRO.

You Make It Real

I’m sure many of you Swagsters are male or play male avatars in-world, right? Okay, then most of you will know that too many of the fashion events around the grid lack male items. The girls get all the goods and what about us? Left out in the cold with maybe a cap and a good pair of jeans? Pfft! Events such as Boys of Summer, which ends today, do a fantastic job at promoting those designers who create mens and unisex clothing. Male avatars with less than 50k items in their inventory salute you! Having said all this, I don’t want to completely kick the female fashion-filled events to the curb.

SL Fashion Week, for instance, is a great setup and another great way to discover different designers and swag to buy for your girlfriends. So as a sponsor of SwaggedOut, how is an event such as this heavily girly one best represented on a predominantly male fashion blog? With my shopaholic girlfriend at my side, of course. The good sport took her time shashaying around SLFW, buying up her favorites from Atooly, Pink Acid and others, and then posed with me for a good 30 minutes while I messed about with windlight settings for a photo. Definitely a trooper!

And get over to XIAJ! The sim is an amazing trip through a grungy subway station, hopping from hidden door to hidden door for each department. Ladies, hop on your man’s back if you don’t want to mess up your pretty manicured toes because you’ll be able to find clothes, shoes and accessories for you here, as well!

Missed the Bus

Damn! I missed my ride, but I guess it gives me more time to share my new swag. 😉

Hair Fair 2013

Alright, so hands down, these S-Curls are the best style to come out of Unorthodox. The detail and time put into each strand by Tonio seriously blows my mind. The style is unisex, but is only available at the Hair Fair until July 28th. Purchases made at the event benefit the Wigs for Kids charity. It’s pretty awesome because the sim reflects a childlike atmosphere, showcasing each store within Lego blocks!

Hair Fair – Harbour – Unorthodox

Boys of Summer – cont.

So I’ve received tons of review packs from this event, right? Does it keep me from checking BoS out in pixel? HELL NAW! I like to think that this chest piece tat from GOLA is a way to warn your girl that you like to get rough and kinky with it before actually taking it there. OR you could scare them out of dragging you along to dinner with your mother-in-law with some foreshadowing? Moving on … these canvas sneakers from XIAJ are making their 3rd appearance on the blog simply because there are a lot of them and they look good. Period. Lastly, the Jumpin’ Jack poses over at Poseology just needed to be used.  Keep in mind, these are BoS exclusives, Swagsters.

Other New Goodies!

We’ve also got some new releases from a couple SwaggedOut’s sponsors. R3volt just released this badass Michael Jacket (get it? Michael Jacket? LOL) the other night. Each aspect of the jacket can change color via HUD. Be unique and style it your own way! Last but not least, Speakeasy has been MIA from the blog for some time now, but I’m glad to welcome JamesEdwardQ Resident back to the sponsor list with these yellow/anchored pants.  James likes to keep the bloggers busy, so Speakeasy will be in quite a few of the next posts, I’m sure.

Honestly, I received some new items from a few of my generous sponsors, through trial and error, tossed an outfit together and decided to blog it for all of you to see. This one might be random, but I assure you there will be so much more to come!

Fi*Fridays, The Mens Department & Boys of Summer

Lots to cover so let’s just get to it!

Fi*Fridays is all new for another week as of this past Friday (obviously).

Most of the place is filled up with fashions for the ladies, but if you keep an eye out, there’s some good pickings for the guys. Make sure to stop over at ::Fe Style:: where you can find a new group of 3 quarter-length sleeve shirts. Each one has a different pattern so you can buy them all and switch it up! 55L each!

The Mens Dept. opened up on the 5th and will last for the month. I’ve already been and spent more lindens than I anticipated!

SwaggedOut’s sponsor Sleepy Bozer has a sister store represented at the event, Valley Parks. There you will find the tattoo I’m sporting. This one is in color, but the black version can be found at the mainstore. Plus, I came across this new necklace from Pekka and the parka from Villena while I was there. This parka is pretty badass. As you can see, I’ve paired it with a shirt, but it comes separately in different colors. Both female and male sizes in one single pack.

Last, but not least, is Depraved Nation’s Boys of Summer event. It opens tomorrow and I am HELLA excited.

I’ve been receiving tons and tons of items from various designers that will be featured here on the blog at some point during the next month. Not sure what the setup will be yet, but you’ll find the XIAJ sneakers and jeans from GLO*Mart somewhere on the premises!

Okay, did I forget anything? Whew! Get to shopping!
