Then There Were Nine

Oh dear, only nine days to go until the MENstuff hunt comes to a close. I’ve been running around trying to get to as many places as possible before the end and I’ve managed to grab another batch of items to show you all today.

First up is this outfit from Tres Beau Designs, called ‘Checkmate’ in brown. It’s a versatile outfit as you can choose to wear either both tops as I am above or just the darker brown ‘under’ sweater and the attachments are included for both. The checks in different shades of brown are a nice and different touch as well.

Duh! always have great shoes and their addition to the MENstuff hunt is no different with this lovely pair of tasseled loafers. Beautifully designed (especially the tassels themselves) and easy to fit with their script, they are some wicked looking footwear.

Next on my list is this shirt from Pig. A new store to me but one definitely worth going back to judging by this shirt. It’s called the Southwest Corner in faded blue. It’s got a very casual look to it with top and bottom buttons undone and little skin-showing gaps. That’s usually not something I look for in a shirt but I liked the look of this one on me very much.

Last but not least for today is this pair of boots from Deco. Again that’s another store I hadn’t been to before and reinforces my opinion that this is what makes hunts so worthwhile. These are called the *Newsprint* Test Boots and while it’s a little hard to see in my picture, there is indeed newsprint on these boots. I don’t wear longer boots that often and looking at these, I wonder why because I absolutely love these ones.

All four of these items are definitely ones you should grab if you haven’t yet. I’ll be showing you some more of the gifts as I pick them up before the hunt comes to an end.

Reeking

Nothing is as good for getting you moving than a 50% off sale. Earlier tonight I had a notecard from Reek saying that they are having exactly that and so I was off lightning quick! They have some amazing gear down there, especially the ‘Papercut Cardigan’ you can see in the picture above.

I’ve wanted to get one of these for a while now but for some reason or another, I had never gotten around to it. Now I know why: I was subconsciously waiting for this day. At L$87 a pop, I was sorely tempted to grab as many as I could carry because there are a lot of great colour choices for this cardigan. I managed to restrain myself and just get two.

This is a unisex cardigan as the sculpted attachments come in men and female versions. It’s definitely one of the best cardigans I’ve seen, the texture is just so amazing looking, my picture doesn’t do justice to how well this is done. There are two different versions to the cuffs: rolled and straight (I’m wearing the rolled version). There are also three different types of collar: one with a hood up, one with a hood down and one with no hood at all. The buttons are colour changeable as well. There are a lot of different ways to wear this cardigan and they all look awesome.

This cardigan is only one of many cool items they have down at Reek and this 50% ends tomorrow so you should hurry because this is one sale you do not want to miss.

At The Wash

You’ve got to love a bargain. Faith took me down to the Cart Sale at The Wash yesterday and there was so much goodness for only L$10 a piece, I had to bring back a few things to show you.

The first is the ‘Forest’ shirt from Hell Bop you can see in the above picture. It’s a military looking shirt, covered with nicely done insignia. It also comes with a collar, cuffs and epaulets. Each of these attachments handily come in both large and small sizes for easier fitting.

The next items come from the same store’s cart: b[elle]issima! Above is the gorgeous tweed jacket, there are a few different colours to choose from in the cart but I went with green. The tweed texture is lovely and the bottom of the coat is done on the skirt layer so there’s no prim fiddling required there. It does come with a collar and cuff attachments however and they both fit and look great. This is a great little coat, definitely one to pick up.

Lastly is the Vest Suit, again from b[elle]issima. It’s a wicked pinstriped outfit (I love pinstripes!). The shirt is a slightly darker black than the pants and the stripes are done well on both. The Vest Suit comes with attachments for the collar and cuffs on both the shirt and pants.

For everything I’ve shown you here, you’ll only pay L$30 and that’s just a little slice of what’s there at the Cart Sale. There’s a lot of cool stuff down there and all at such amazing prices. Get down there and take a look while it lasts. (added by Faith-because I CAN – I just wanna say that we arrived at the cart sale and Steve said after about 3 minutes “I cant seee anything great for guys here”, I then proceeded to drag his sorry butt around SHOWING him the stuff..and he says Im the impatient one? Soooooo typical of a GUY *eye roll*)
