Living a digital life with empty pockets

Get suited at Hoorenbeek

There are new male and female gifts for Subscribe-o-matic members at Hoorenbeek. You will need to have been a member of their Subscribo for more than 14 days in order to qualify for this gift. If you’re already a member (and have been for at least that long) then head over to the store’s central pillar to click and claim your gifty. If not, then go there, click the Subscribo, then come back in 14 days. The gifts usually remain out for at least a month, so you’ll have plenty of time to grab them.

Boys, my apologies, but I didn’t have long in-world to grab the gift and take snapshots, so I’m afraid I didn’t get or snap your gift (I literally saw the email alert of the notice and ran to log in so I could grab and blog as fast as possible, to give everyone the maximum amount of time to join the Subscribo if they needed to!). You lads get a great olive hoodie with sculpted hood and accessories (and Hoorenbeek’s clothes are always fab quality, so it’s one you should definitely snag!)

Girls, you’re in for a treat, especially if you need what this month’s gift is: a fantastic grey business suit. This has over 60 pieces, and you can choose from normal system pants or pants with sculpted cuffs, a skirt, a texture jacket or various sculpted jacket bases, three shirts (black, white with thin grey stripe, and white with thin blue stripe) and… well, like I said: I didn’t have much time so I quickly put on a few options and took some snaps! Mar’s teamed them with House of Curio’s L$50 colour-change MIB Stilettos, the L$65 Tuli limited edition Dressing Room skin (blogged here) and her favourite Amacci freebie hair (blogged in the same post).

Brisk and businesslike

While Second Life is a playground for many of us, for some of us it is also a business venture, and the kind of fashion that often finds its way to the blogs is not suitable for the more professional virtual existence.

At the moment, the Pixeldolls store is having another 10L$ sale, and Mar found some perfect items for the SL businesswoman there, as well as taking a quick trip to Bare Rose and House of Curios, for another suit and some accessories.

Shoes worn throughout this blogpost (unless stated) are the 10L$ colour-change Chunky Stilettos from House of Curios, and the glasses are the colour-change 50L$ Rectangle Female Glasses, also from House of Curios. Hair is the free fatpack (in all colours) of Berri, by Truth at The Gnubie Store. Stockist locations are at the end of the post.

Here, Mar’s grey suit is Liason SystemDress Noir, from the 10L$ sale at Pixeldolls. Beneath it she’s wearing the Demi Cami Tintable, also in the 10L$ Pixeldolls sale. Stockings are the SLBM Women Socks from the Business Suit at Bare Rose (more on that in a moment).

Hop behind the cut for more business looks, that will take you from boardroom meetings, through Dress Casual Fridays, and right up to cocktails at the hotel bar on those business trips away.
