When you work on a boat you need to dress right cause the weather can change fast…

Clothing and skin from the October Mens Dept (ends Oct 31) + a cool new release from Fashion Emergency and great grungy jeans used throughout the post from American Bazaar.

setting out 2bisAt 6:00am it had all the makings of a fine day, the kind you dream about in October. I figured I’d be extending my summer tan. Instead, a patch of dark clouds was gathering through the morning haze and we were heading right towards it…

The Wind RIses lighetr 2Half way to the pots, the wind picked up and the first drops began to fall. Rule No.1: keep your neck warm – so I grabbed my Gabriel sweater. The one that keeps my ears warm and the rain off my face. It never leaves the boat…

At the Marker shad 2By the 20 mile marker, it was a damn mini-squall. The sky darkened again, the rain rolling in like sheets and we went for the foul weather gear. Did I mention the wind, I guess I did…

rainI threw on my Deadwool slicker. Yeah it’s covered in grease from the engines; it’s not a fashion show out there. It keeps my hands free and the rain off my back, that’s what matters!

On Land ExpI was happy to be dockside again and back in my FE jacket. Squall or no squall we got our pots in cause that’s what we do…

As much as I like football and pumpkins and bobbing for apples, I’m not quite ready to give up Summer just yet. Thankfully it’s always Summer somewhere, especially in SL, and Flow‘s excellent boardshorts and retro swim suits from this month’s Mens Dept (ends Sep 30) provide a nice excuse to ignore the season and enjoy some SL rays. The boardshorts have a texture-change band and like the swim suits are available with liquid-mesh sizing in a range of colors and at an attractive price.

The avis feature skins by (Red)Sand (previously bogged here) and a recent gift from Aeva with shapes by Novus and Shape it Up. Hair is from Alli & Ali (including a current group gift), where numerous styles are on sale for 50l through the end of the month.

I wanted to feature some of the gifts from the Homestuff hunt before it ends on Sep 2 along with a nice build from Designer Prims I’ve had in inventory for a while. Tekila already blogged Circa‘s Homestuff gift below … here are a few more gifts from that hunt including items from domus, Johadez & Cleo Design. The complete hunt line-up is found here.

The Designer Prims build is all Mesh with a land impact of just 28 prims including the removable room divider bookcase. It features texture-change walls and floors and in this case full-length windows running the entire frontage with shutters that can be turned on or off by clicking a switch. There are two large living areas, an exterior deck and, as you might guess, the light is great. The house is designed for small lots but is still quite roomy and would also work fine as a skyloft.  Perhaps best of all, the house is available on marketplace for just 99l.

I couldn’t resist throwing a few fashion shots with Astrid into the mix. Clothing includes Liv-Glam, AB and Klubwerk among others. Note there are items here from the 24 Event and Mens Dept – both ending today I believe.

Monochrome Hunts is back with their latest color-themed hunt, the Lavender Hill Hunt, and like usual there is a nice mix of fashion & decor items to be had. I’m tardy showing the gifts – the hunt officially ends on Mar 10 – but you still have time to get the things you want (note gifts cost 5l). Check the hunt blog for previews of most of the items.

Some of my favorite furniture gifts include [Circa's] coffee table and pouf set. The coffee table comes in two versions and contains a fascinating miniature garden with butterflies. Breno‘s bunny chair will also make you smile and is perfect for the season. On the fashion side, Epicosity‘s Mesh suit is a must for men and Immerse has a lovely purple Mesh dress that pairs perfectly with the necklace gift from Sigma Jewels.

My female model here features a great combination of a Shape It Up! shape found at the Free*Style store for just 10l and a gift skin from Deesse’s. The male is the same Kirk skin from Essences I blogged last time- it’s so nice I haven’t wanted to take it off- here combined with Step Inside‘s shape from the SYSP anniversary hunt. Note that the SYSP anniversary hunt has lots of good gifts for women (see the last pic for one of the outfits). Stop by the Structure Your Skin project to get the store list and hint “book” for the hunt.

I’m also showing two outfits from 22769 to round out the post: The male shirt can be found at Mens Dept, where the March collection launched earlier this week and the female outfit is on sale at Gallery Gift Shop for just a few more days. Have a nice weekend everyone!
