Stellar Ploomage

I have always said you learn something new everyday in Second Life. That is true, and often it is the things we expect are known all over; that are in fact usually the opposite. Example would be todays little Second Life Tier lesson. I have had a sim now – The Deck – for two years, and I will admit that for at least the first year I was an ignorant land owner. Which seeing as I have had my own 512 since 2006 is even worse, but I will let myself off the hook there seeing as I have that tier as part of my premium account perks.

Now it is pretty well known that I have worked for many in Second Life, and most of those people owned their own sims. But I must say learning by example is not always a good thing, especially when dealing with finances from different countries. My bosses of the past were always Americans up to the point of owning my own sim. So for them to ‘cash out’ was a simple process, especially in the days of doing so through Xstreet. But for me for years I had always cashed out from Xstreet to Paypal to Australia Bank to Credit Card. Then once I owned a sim I did the same and they would bill my CC.

If you are doing this too, whichever country you are from STOP RIGHT NOW. I was paying fees and currency exchange fees all over the damn place, but again this was my own ignorance, and my settling to believe that that was the one and only way. It isn’t, and seriously this is no ones fault, it is again just one of those things everything thinks everyone knows.

When you sell your Lindens via your account info on the Second Life main website, the money is converted to a US Dollar amount. Once that occurs STOP. The way linden labs at the time of this announcement lol, is that they go through your USD balance first and if all the money they need is there that is as far as they go. If your balance is lacking part of the money owed, only then do they go to your Credit Card or whatever money paying info you have provided them – this is why it is always a nice thing to pay your rent on time if renting from others, because if the lindens go to credit cards because there isn’t enough money in USD it can really effect the RL of your landlord, but that is another thing altogether.

So don’t be silly like I was for a year, once you have the USD balance all good and full enough to cover your tier leave it there, and if like me you see the linden is giving good money at other times, sell some of your lindens to up your USD balance, the money isn’t going anywhere as either USD or L’s.

Ok now on to the fashion. Firstly only two more full days of Hair Sale Yummyness…

That is right, the Ploom Hair Sale will end on Sunday night, and you need to go and grab all you can. Especially the cutsie and fabulous themed do’s like the incredible Telephone hair with such shiny Diet Coke cans. It is always in the middle of the night when you find inspiration for hair such as this, so why not grab it while it is on sale, and save it for one of those fabulous fun nights.

I am always talking in reverse lately. The other night I was at Sn@tch as I mentioned and this vest flew off the wall at me, how is this not being worn by EVERYONE, no seriously EVERYONE MUST HAVE THIS. The style of Suede Vest this is with the fringing and all is so flower power I have so much love for it right now, but went with a darker look.

Mixing the brand spanking new jean shorts from Zaara these are bumtastic. The one thing about jeans shorts is that if you don’t know what you are doing in the crotch area you will end up with all sorts of issues. Zaara is crotch knowledgable – you know one day resumes all over the world are going to be full of Second Life jargon, it will be like those secret societies they do movies on… a tap on the nose a knowing look and HIRED. They will have things like ‘can make a bikini with one pixel front to back’ or ‘ can animate without snapping the torso” or even more funna ” is Slider capable”  so anyway, back to Zaara and her crotch knowledge, these jean shorts come in darks or lights and are really cute with their rolled over edges and beautiful stitching.

I needed a bit more to make the look edgier, so again I went to Erratic and pulled out those fabulous wide fishnets I had shown in the past, underneath they go on the undies layer and voila. Slip them inside some of J’s western boots and I am almost done. The hair is the cutest too, meant to be all girly girl with a name like Kewpie, but with a hidden bit of evil in the skull bow adorning the headband. The headband has its own hud that you can change to many different colours and fabrics, this is another of the wonderful SALE hairstyles at Ploom so don’t miss out on it – there are red tickets showing all the sale hairs. The gloves I have on are some of my all time favourites, but you will have to buy the full outfit to get them, as they are part of a Maiiki set, and the Maiiki items are all full looks.

Now to go to the other side of the girly girl spectrum, my pintsized friend with the gargantuan personality Lexi Morgan – of Stellar – is a lover of frills, I swear if she can work out a way to add a ruffle to it she will, and this is a good thing believe me. The Brynn top I am wearing is all ruffle, or layers, or however you want to describe it, it is a really pretty floral top that cascades down and over the breasts, its almost like a kerchief top, but not. What I did like was the glitch underneath as well lol, I love when designers make their glitch stand alone items – yes and I know I say that everytime someone does, but it deserves praise so nerrrrr.

So while it looks all frilly and girly girl in the pink and the light denim shorts from Zaara, and a too darn sexy pose from Poseur – just thought I would bring your attention to my bottom for a moment lol. I skip on over to the top without the sculpts and add the other new release from Stellar the bermuda jeans, these 3/4 jeans are great for this time of year, even for down here I could rock those out with some boots or whatever. I have to say I was all Miss Pouty Face though because well you should have seen the first belt I wanted to wear *sniffles* remember a long time ago I did some posts with Celestial Studios pants, and played up the fact that she made all her own texture belts to fit exactly to the loops and cut of her own pants. WELL, I wanted to just see, see if I was blessed with some blogger fate, but alas even though the cherry patent belt looked almost passable from the front, and OMG it looked so fantastic as a look, there was a large gap of no belt at the back due to I guess how the belt was meant to go with only a certain style jeans/pants.

So now my lovely Lexi and all you great and wonderful designers out there that do jeans, or other pants with loops…please consider making fun texture belts that are add ons on the jacket layers, or actually all layers, because you could put a pants layer belt over a undies layer pants and then still wear a jacket. Anyway think on it, because it can be so much fun, and really add to a collections possibilities.

The great skins I am wearing through this post are Candy by Gala @ Curio. The face is just lovely, and I really had fun guessing in advance what the make ups would be by their names, tootsie roll was a no brainer lol. In the red pic I am actually wearing the cleavage enhancer, and accidently put on the one that pretty much flattens you out, so if you have always wanted a gala skin but where not exactly a fan of the breast shading, or want something milder, please demo again and check out the cleavage options you can buy seperately, it really does make such a difference.

Ok so my bloggers fate was that while I was typing this, no word of a lie the Telephone song did come up and play on Janga o/ meant to be I tell ya.

Whatever youdo do NOT miss out on the PLOOM SALE ends Sunday

MoxieBasics

Moxie Summer Patents

I have a little secret pleasure, it happens usually every week, a drop down appears from a certain store and their notice always makes me grin. It doesn’t matter if I like, love or just consider what is for sale that week, it is the creativity that has always gone into both the naming of the notice, as well as the descriptions of the items.

Yes you guessed it, there is nothing like a big notecard full of Sn@tch. Now even though the pics are the other way around, I just was glad that because of the little treat of enjoying my sn@tch weekly, I usually know what I can jump over and grab if I need to. This was exactly the perfect time, what with the make up being just right, the hair being perfect and knowing that I was going to find the exact top I had seen the week before. So the lesson here folks is present yourself to your audience in a way that is both eyecatching and thought provoking, because the sn@tch that grabs you one day, will be one you love forever.

Now back to the right order of things. The Cami top I am wearing is part of the Gatcha Festival happening at the Albero sim, that is one of the best things that happened with saving those sims, was that the traditions the original owners had started continued. I remember my first time at one, it was on two levels then, and I spent bazillions just on the first row, everything was so adorable. Back then it was more about accessories though, things to put in your mouth, your hair, on your shoulder and so on…now it is all sorts of items, including these great Cami tops. Tee*fy is the creator, and the tops come in lovely summery prints and light bright colours.

This one worked perfectly with my look, and the Mo pants from Miel. These pants never date, they are an older Miel item and still superb to wear. It occured to me today actually that this style would probably look fantastic on men too, I would love to see a male blogger do a post in a pair and prove me correct.

One of my favourite things about Hair Fair aside from the hair, the newness, the charity and the launching of new stores lol, is the fact that there are some older stores that very rarely do hair through the year, but really WOW me at Hair Fair. Fashionably Dead is one such store. Every single Hair Fair they impress me with their unique styles and just adorable looks. Remember the saucepan hair of 2009? This year was no different, I had to get their sheepskin lined deerstalker style hat/hair, but also this braided style called Lemonade. Which ended up looking so adorable with the Skull Bowl from Deco. I did have to edit it a bit – the hat not the hair – to fit but it was a simple stretch both sides and voila done.

Now to the inspiration for both looks, the new RedMint skins. The skin as usual is great, very detailed body and OMG the cleavage – believe it or not this is actually the default, there are enhancers , which push them together more so. The skin has a really fit stomach, and everything really works well overall.

The skin comes with also hair base options, light or dark brows, and its own prim nails and teeth. There are also make up add ons you can purchase and they truly are worth it, they look amazing, and the first one is definitely a favourite. Whether playing femme fatale with the netting and a pillbox hat/hair, or going the route I took, the face netting is sexy.

Another make up that was a pure win was the geisha looking one, and I knew immediately what hair to feature it with, and as I mentioned exactly where to go for a top, and funnily enough I knew who I wanted to show on the lower as well. Erratic is a store I keep wanting to show more, but every time the only items I have were in the wrong colours. This time though I wasn’t going to change my mind, and went off in search for what I had already in silver, in black. YAY for them being available in black, because the laser cut pants are really cool. Very low cut and nice detailing on the holes as well as the tights themselves…pretty awesome bottom shading.

Further down from those you will find another set of newness about to be released from Maitreya Gold. The Moxie Summer heels are the feet version of the Moxie released earlier with socks. Everyone loved the with socks style so much, that they begged for a with feet version, and to make them a little different they are being released with three extra heel/soul colours you can get on clicking the menu drop down options. They come in basic or patent and I just adore the snakeskin look on the basics, as well as that mix of black and white for the couture version.

These are sexy wedge heels, and I know one particular Newdolly that will be over the moon seeing these. They will be released tomorrow with the Yaxkin.

Reason for the post title, that Whimsy likes to torment me with teasing me about Australia and it’s mountains, she calls them hills and says we fake our snow…MEAN

On the look out for Yax

Safari

YaxKin

I can barely see my screen these days, I have the worst desktop in all of the world. I clean it to near empty and within days it is full again, I have to refresh how icons are shown just to find things I have just uploaded. But now there is a new toy to play with, so I don’t see myself doing anything about my desktop in a hurry. Linden Labs has just launched their own Networking features.

If you like wall talking like facebook and, have a twitter or plurk fixation, this might be right up your next alley. Go to https://my.secondlife.com/ and log in, and you will see a wall of text, so many familiar names as it is straight from your Friends List. That is why I like it so much, because they are people that over the years I have actually had some interaction in world with. Not opposed to meeting new people, but the idea of adding friends because you got points of Karma for it – kind of made me think that it was probably bad karma – nice way to communicate with others all at once, and you can make it visible to all second lifers, or just friends, or even the world. The choices are yours, however in settings notifications for now I suggest unchecking all but notifications by email on your own posts, because so far in only a few hours I have filled two pages of gmail, and capping may be an issue with in world notifications once logged off.

Anyways in search of wild beasts of the Amazon, ok wait a minute, I watched the Pilot for Wonder Woman and while it was okaaaaaay, what struck me as insane was that there was a 5 minute fight scene with her and 20 guys and all through it you saw every single rope and pulley of them being pulled backwards if hit, or her jumping high or across a room, as well as even a door being pulled down a corridor as it was kicked in. WHAT THE? I have watched so much TV in my life and never ever seen such bad effects, maybe one rope by accident and so on, but every single shot for the full time, it was awful. I found out since though that it was dropped by the company doing it, and I am really sad face, because Wonder Woman was an incredible show for me as a kid, and had such potential for a series now.

Ok again back to my post, the YaxKin shoes I am wearing to many die hard Maitreya fans will look familiar. Yes that is because they are in fact the flat version of the ever so popular Ixkin heels released last year. The style is a combination of boho and gladiator style sandals, and the ones I am showing are the duo sets. These are really easy to wear, and will look great no matter what you wear them with. I have been prancing around in them all week, and especially liked them with this old Surf co skirt and new Maitreya shirt. The Yaxkin shoes will be out tomorrow onwards, and look for another very sexy shoe also being released at the same time.

The hair I am wearing is Lohan from LeLutka, and the poses used are made for long hair by Long Awkward Pose. It is really good to have poses on hand for specific needs, especially with all the photography in world that is done for advertising of products, nothing is more distracting from a vendor ad, than when the model has hair coming out her chest trying to sell you a pair of jeans.

Roasted Carrot

Exi

I swear every year I do this big rant about how ‘this year’ I will post on my own climate. It is so hard to watch yourself swanning around in barely anything, when it is so cold and wet outside. But alas every year that never happens, and swanning I do.

A few weeks ago I was over at Epic, that store has certainly grown in the last year or so since it joined What’s New SL. I have been watching all the clothing releases of late too, and they are looking really fun. But it was the release of the Faun Tech Boots that really swayed my attention. These are just all sorts of fun to wear, but it is little cool things, that I didn’t even notice until after Mel pointed them out, or I had been wearing them for longer than 5 seconds.

First off they have tiny little TV’s on the fronts and backs playing old cartoons, so cute. Then there is the hud that allows you to change the accent colours, which is great for like neon pink or blues and so on, I stuck with white today. Lastly is the cool little particle source that emits from them, that is like steam or smoke or something very cool indeed.

On an almost recent trip with Newdoll and Whimsy, we went to WWI and I found out through Newdoll, that they had subranded to ?Why it should be Why Not? but oh well. The items I bought were the wrong colours for the look, but thanks to Marketplace I bought the same items as I did then in whites last night, while still able to stay on the VR Studio and watch Whimsy build the most awesome thing – secret for now.

The shorty shorts and tighter than tight shirt are just nice items to have, sexy and cute, but definitely will get extra wear out of them. The Shirt is of course going to get a lot more milage, as it is really well constructed but also just a great shirt style to have.

I am actually using one of the NEW Poses from aDORKable Poses, this set is the SidePony set, and even though my hair isn’t in a ponytail, the pose worked really well at keeping my hair where it needed to be. Also because of their greatness, I had a mirror pose to work with for all as well if needed – love that feature.

Also a huge MUST HAVE this weekend is the Mandala Nails, new nails, new styles with 60 or 70 – depending which hud you choose, I got both -  incredible nail polishes/art to choose from with the HUD, OMG a Mandala HUD we have all been waiting for this piece of YUM.

Button Down Rock Star

Rockstar
Stormy 1
Stormy 2
Stormy 3

Doing the Rockstar look today. Well maybe not intented to be one, but if I was going to be on stage doing my thing I would so be all about looks like this one – I have also been humming Tex Perkins “Lawyer” for the past two hours so that helped my mood a bit. I love button down dresses, almost as much as button down coats, but I think you get a lot more out of doing something like this with a dress.

The fact that Mimikri totally captured the ‘look’ of an unbuttoned dress is just wicked. The set actually comes with adorable floral bikini bottoms, but for me it was all about the calypso slip, or a skirt or even some leather pants would have worked it. The fabric in breezy is divine, and I would love to see it done in solids as well as the polka dot look, I would love it in every print and solid in every single colour, it is so sexy.

The boots are fabulous and today if you hurry you can get these in the much wanted white version for only 50L. When originally the curvaceous boots were released the only option was cream as a light, but now white has been made for perfect gogo boots. Not sure if Gos is planning a plug in for the originals – love how he does that by the way – because I would have loved to have made the side buttons white for this look.

The hair I have on is nomi from Exile, so cute that I got stop IM’d when out shopping and asked where it was from, I always like when that happens because it is nice to be able to spread the word in world and out about fabulous items.

This weekend Gala Phoenix is going to release her new Stormy skin and you get an earlier peek. The skin is as usual just lovely body wise, and with all the tones and light dark effects. This one has much darker brows YAY. Stormy has as its name suggests stormy styled make ups, very deep and shades of grey and blues…very nice and definitely easy to incorporate into your wardrobe.

It’s in the way that you shade it

Jeans

Vita

Wow it is over for another year. Hair Fair is such a big part of the committee’s lives for the months leading up to, that after it is all over and the booths are all packed away – thank you so much Mel and Whimsy – there is this kind of ‘ So um what now ? ” feeling.

Well to make sure that I didn’t fall back into the same old same old, I got right back on my VR Studio and took some pics of these great new releases. First off for the past few days I have been strutting around Second Life in these jeans admiring my own bottom. The Zaara classic jeans are just scrumptious for that, the shading the colours, it all works combined to bring some very delish looking pixels. Not usually a fan of lighter jeans, but these ones work…also you can buy the darks packs, so I combined two from each, so you could get a little tastey. They come on both undies and pants layers and have 3 different cuffs options, so very cool to have so many choices.

The Top I am wearing is part of the Elymode Vita collection, a set she created a few months ago, that she has turned into even more versatile pieces. I especially love the cinch’s that allow you to elongate the look of your frame, as well as can make some of your older pieces – whether Elymode or not – really fun new looks. I have done that with the cinch on the left with an older tank from Miel, and on the right with the bra top from Eclectic Apparel. The two E stores are a good match up actually, they both have an incredible fascination with pastel and purple.

The Vita mini skirts are a lot of fun too, and if you are lucky and are in the store when your letter hits the chair, well the Vita set was also done in a white with black trim combo, the summery looks you will be able to do with those are going to be HOT HOT HOT.

Speaking of summery looks, the Shaz platform thongs by SLink are so cute, not only because they are platforms and thongs, but because they has frogs or flowers as an option on the thong part of the shoe. You can turn that off as well, so you have lots of fun with them, also there is the coloured sole of the shoe, or a more natural woven look. To compliment these thongs, MOOD has created jewelry add ons. Now first off by Add Ons I mean just that, you must use the ADD option when wearing, so be sure you are using a multiple attachment viewer.

The Olivia Fancy Feet Add Ons, have a HUD that allows for changes to the colour of stones, accents and whether you want the toe rings on or off. They are really lovely to wear, but you must be wearing some kind of feet in shoe style thingy for them to work. You can actually buy either or both at either or both locations, lol.

Wasabi Pills has been busy, already releasing new hair since Hair Fair, two of the styles are male in origin but I decided that I wanted them for me too. The Thor is especially fun, and have you seen that movie yet OMG has he grown up into a sort. Holy smokes what a yum, and an aussie too, one that knows a thong is for your foot darnit.

Hair Fair 2011 – Bandana Day

Bandana Day 2011

Bandana Day One

Bandana Day 2

My first experience with Hair Fair was Bandana Day. In 2007 Six Kennedy asked me to be the one that organised it, when I went to her suggesting it as an idea. I never i8magined what it would do, how people would embrace it, and yet every year people come forward from all over SL wanting to create one, or letting us know that they have sent their whole group over, held events wearing them and so on.

This years mix of bandanas is as awesome as years previous, there are RP themed ones, beach themed ones, fun retro ones, and very glamorous ones. Today is the day that we remove our hair to show we care. A day without hair to show some support to those that have lost, or are losing their hair to illness, not a lot to ask for, and it is just your avatar that does it. Mind you some have actually cut hair in past years and sent to charity to help in that way also.

Many over the years collect the bandanas and wear them to other laggy events, I see them often through the year, and cannot help but be proud that it is Hair Fair that provided that oppurtunity. Also the are transferable, so you can buy many and share with friends, or pass to others when it is laggy. Whatever you do, or are doing, or have done, this year so far the bandanas have raised over a Hundred Thousand Lindens and as they sell for only 50L each, that is awesome.

So whether you wear them today, or in the future, just be sure to buy some, because they are only available at the Fair, and if you haven’t looked yet, you may find out that someone you know made one…don’t want to miss out on that.

Also not wanting to miss out on is the Second Hair Fair Flickr Contest. It ends tomorrow but the access to the fair ends tonight at Midnight, which is only 14 hours to go. The contest prizes are amazing, and if you already have the pro we can add the time on, so don’t not enter because of that – some have asked.

Whose Hair Will you Wear

Hair Fair 2011 – Last Stand and Deliver

Strand

Rosy

L+N

I heard a secret today, well ok not really a secret, but Royal Blue is having a 50% off ALL BLUE items SALE. Now I am pretty sure it has started, but the only way to know for sure is to compare the prices of the blue items to other colours. If half price then BUY BUY BUY. If not then wait until further announcement.

The first store The Strand has hat hair lovers rejoicing – the buttons hair actually is clickable for three different colours, I am wearing these delish styles with some other Royal Blue items, everyone of them I do believe has a blue option. I am also wearing the BOOM shoulder warmers, my first ever BOOM purchase and one that will always stand up no matter how old as a gorgeous creation.

The second pic is Rosy Mood hair, so cute, and braids are so popular this year. I must say though that I would love to the the crimped look style without the braids as an option too. The short look hair is awesome and flicky, and could probably work on men too. The top is a great new top from Cynful, I am a bit torn between unbuttoned and buttoned, both have such good looks and ways to wear other than on their own.

L+N Signature does great out there hair usually and this year is a bit tamer, but I am loving the looks and especially the middle and left hair. All three worn with the great Yoke tanks from Whippet & Buck.

Only a few days left for Hair Fair 2011 so make sure you get all your shopping done, Whimsy and I are about to go again now, so make sure you say Hi if you see us.

Hair Fair 2011 – Tight Tight Baby

ama

Gau

Chi

Me

Kezia

So many exciting ways to create hair, it is what I most love about Hair in Second Life, that with the same tools available people can still come up with unique and fun ways to showcase their talent. I also love the textures that have appeared at this years fair, as well as the number of developed Hair Base Tattoos, that have definitely improved since last year.

First up Amacci, so elegant and beautifully worked, she manages to always do really good alpha hair, without getting all of the glitches that are very complicated to work around. Her hair is even looking softer lately which I am a big fan of. The dresses worn are by Peqe, I really like the strapless tube dress style, the print is pretty, but I did notice that there is a visible line mid torso that is not usually an issue with print placement. The effect comes off looking as though there may be a top option only, it could be an available print issue, but anyway, I still like the overall look.

OMG Lemon coloured hair, I got so excited to see a citrus pack in the hair from Gauze, but had no idea that Lemon would be so incredible. I love lemon, it is such a stunning colour, and my whole kitchen is Lemon and Blue, unfortunatly all in storage, but anyway. The hair by Gauze is all great styling and some could even be unisexy, but this loose knot style is all woman, rawr. Indie Rose I love you for your fat pack hud, I have mentioned it before, but seriously if all designers did this, it would save the planet – or at least the grid. Wearing a fat pack as a hud and clicking on the colour you want to wear at that time, and it delivering a folder you can delete once you wear it is GENIUS. These halter animal print jumpsuits are so sexy and fun and the colours available on the hud showed me that I would get a near match to the hair colours I wanted to feature WIN WIN WIN.

ChiChickie! has some great styles this year at the fair also, I love as well how they did their booth up to blend with the theme. Short, sporty and those lush tight curls all work as a great release for Hair Fair. I am wearing a sexy one piece swimming costume from Eclectic Apparel, and the rest of the great clothes are also from there.

Me. is a rebrand for Kia Goodliffe, and it has made her happy enough to be creating some great styles. They have huds that help you with streaks and colours for the accesssories, and I am a big fan of this wild curled hair with braid. Lastly Mina, another booth that looks amazing, and the styles in her release really vary in looks, from rockabilly tails, to loose and sexy, to these incredibly tight braids tied close to the scalp with their own unique hair base. Very cool release.

Just a reminder that the Flickr Contest is on until the 16th at Midnight, DO NOT MISS OUT, the pics so far are amazing and the prizes are wonderful. Also as it is almost the last day of the fair that means it is also coming up to Bandana Day, the 15th of July this year, but always last day of the fair. We remove our hair to show we care and wear one of the Bandanas modified by people from all over sl. You can buy one or more from the Hair Fair only for 50L and they are mod transfer, so you can send them to friends, and change throughout the day a few times, they are lots of fun and the money from their sale all goes to Wigs for Kids.

Hair Fair 2011 – Pour some sugar on me

Der

Sugar

TenFifteen
PM

 

Only a few days left, and I am still trying to show as much as possible. The Derp booth was one of the first to set up, and I was really impressed with the unisexy styles this year. Fun little beanie do’s and a great wind swept look. I am wearing the OhMai harem pants that Anya recently put out for only 1L at her store. I really missed her being part of the fair this year, her hair last year was fabulous. But you do get the chance to see her cover her favs so far on her flickr and blog and WOW she has me in awe of her talent on a minute by minute basis.

Next up is Sugarsmack, such a talented cookie she turned out to be, from seeing her one pine style a few months back, to these lush locks. I especially love this shorter style, so very Mod Squad. Cannot wait to smack more sugar in the future. The clothing is Nylon Outfitters again, I told you I am collecting now lol.

The hair in this third pic is from TenFifteen, by Washu and Mikayla our other two Hair Fair chairs. Good to see them creating for this event again…history being Washu made the first ever prim hair in SL and many would remember Mikaylas famous hairrollers hair from 2007. I especially like the mens style in this collection, the hairbase is wicked with the braids as part of the base, allowing the rest to be all hawkey. The off the shoulder Gauze tops from Aoharu are just ultra feminine, I thought they were a perfect contrast with that look.

Pocket Mirrors are a new to me brand, and I am especially loving the updo’s. The one on the right is a classic bun but more leaning towards a true Spanish look, and so lovely. French braid in the middle and a lovely updo, all worn with some more Baiastice. How incredible is that coat, and the dress is just YUMMO.

Have a great day…
