Wear Gray has started, this event has been dreamt about and organised for months now. The contact person I know of is Sanura Snowpaw, and her dedication to this cause has been beautiful to watch from afar. There are so many wonderful exclusives that you can see teasers of on the website. I have not been in world long enough to get over there this weekend, but cannot wait to attend.

Today’s post was supposed to be yesterdays, but I logged off for a day due to RL. The hair is all from Dernier Cri, their Hair Fair styles are just beautiful, and so luxurious. I decided to wear them with the Dernier Cri skins Charlotte which I haven’t worn for a while and just love, ever since it was a gift skin for halloween in its Zombie form. Dernier Cri has the dye pack system that just makes changing hair colours a breeze, it has changed a lot since the original conception of it, and rightly so, as Asuka has been sure to keep up with todays wants and needs of the residents of Second Life.

It has been interesting watching how Dernier Cri has evolved especially as it came in island and all from the teen grid, Asuka has always been an inspiration on how to do things the right way.

All of the clothing – except the shrug – I am wearing is new Fishy Strawberry content, Fae has been absent for a while, and noticibly so, but this new release more than makes up for it, the style and detailing is superb, and I always love when she releases accessories, and these belts are just great.

Bandana Day will be the 19th of September, if you haven’t already purchased your bandanas from Hair Fair, make sure to go back and grab lots for you and friends. They are scattered around the sims, but also on two of the main sims pathways down the middle. 50L each and transfer, and such an incredible showing of resident unity.

He made a Robot out of my boxes

FrouFrou


Frou Frou 2

Hair Fair 2010 is upon us, so many incredible content creators under many roofs. I am going to try and do as many posts as I can and hope that you enjoy not only mine, but the dozens or so I have seen so far.

The first store I am featuring is Frou Frou, brand new store, and the first styles I have seen are just divine. The first hair is Natasha Has Hot Rollers and as a woman who used to hot roller her hair and then shake it out, at least once a week this was a must. The hair is stylish and grand with a definite grace to it. This is the bigger of the two Natasha styles. This beautiful hair do gave me a chance to show off not only the latest release of stunning shoes from Maitreya Gold, but also my squee worthy love affair with the Yokes from Whippet & Buck.

The beaded Yoke is just beautiful and Whippet & Buck outdid themselves with not only providing it as a seperate layer to beautiful anything you want, but also on a combined sheer tank option, with all layers so you can be a little more descreet by stacking them, but in this case I am wearing it with a fabulous corset from Eclectic Apparel. I combined the look using the skirt from a really old Ghost release, so much fun mixing and matching Ghost. I am using a 2.1 viewer official actually, that allows so many more layers than ones in the past, and remembered that over at The Dressing Room Glam Affair had some face tattoo layers for sale, so grabbed those and stacked them, with also the lipstick I made for Mima by LAQ – still free at Flair in the blue box if anyone wants them.

The second style by Frou Frou is Mrs Andrews, I asked the creator while she was setting up what that was about, and it ended up being based on the character in the original Freaky Friday movie, not the JLC one. I love a concave cut bob, I once had Aleri make me one and it was a huge success, I invision this one being the same.

I found the most peculiar sim the other week, by found I mean landed upon, seeing as I am sure it was not lost in the first place. Anyway Whimsy and I ended up spending a fortune there, in small spurts as there were so many gatcha and lower priced items that it was astounding how much we did spend. Anyway while I was there I got this fabulous belt, and it was under a 100L and had all these attachment options and is really great prim work. It looks so cool with the new Jodpurs on crack by Royal Blue, as Royal Blue has just released a slew of seperates in time to pad your winter wardrobe plans. Whether casual classy or highly elegant, the Frou Frou hairs work as well as the Maitreya Gold Hana Sandals of all win.

The poses I am using are from aDORKable, they are the official Posers of Hair Fair and if and when you have time, you really need to check out the group and prop poses they made for the fair, the hair pulling ones are AWESOME.

I just got told that Newdolls hubby told her that last year at Hair Fair he gathered up all my red boxes and made a robot, I wish that I had seen it, because it would have been a hoot. No red boxes at Hair Fair this year, but you will really enjoy all the fantastic styles there…all donations are going to Wigs for Kids, an increible cause. Ashia Tomsen has put together a list of the Slurls for Hair Fair 2010 to make it easier to see what is what and where is who, HERE

There be Dragons

Skidoo

2010 Shoe Fair Poster

I was having a ball running around the grid today with Mel and Whimsy. Mel decided to embarass me in open chat because he kind of forgot that there were people under us, lol. Now I am standing in a cave with two fabulous women as they discuss the new breedable Dragons that just opened Beta at Precious Dragons – I wonder if they eat bunnies?

So I went running around Shoe Fair again today, and could not resist the new Shiny Things shoes….especially in the black and white. I wanted to show that they are so versatile, not only in a funky and fun look on the left, but also the more sedate look on the right.

Another place I had to drag Whimsy to today, was The Body Politik as it is soon closing down for an exciting new rebrand, but with that going on, all of the items are on sale at fabulous prices. One of the awesome items I got last week when I was there is this incredible oversized hat, the suede hat is a must have, and fit beautifully over my new hair by KIN which is next door. If you go to TBP sim you need to check out all of the little stores of the build, because there are different departments all over the place.

Don’t forget that many of the items for sale at Shoe Fair are donating proceeds to Charity, so well worth a visit for that reason alone.

O to the B to the Noxious

Bia

Ever since I saw a sneak peak at this skin in an ad for another item, I was smitten. I have been waiting impatiently, and finally today it was released.

This is Bianca, the latest release from Adam n Eve, a pouty and sexy skin, with 12 make ups and four beautiful tones. There are two skins in the pack, one with and one without cleavage enhancement, as well as a whole lot of hair base and down there options on tattoo layers. The manicure and pedicure sets also come with as usual, so you get lots and lots of bang for your buck.

The make ups are fabulous, and Sachi said that in the future she plans on doing more make ups as separate layers, so yay for that to look forward to. I noticed a subtle difference in the tummy area, so make sure you DEMO DEMO DEMO these skins because they are lush.

The Edge dress is also by Adam n Eve and its a great Micro mini, but also has a flexi fuller mini skirt option, if the micro isn’t how you roll.

New skin deserves delish new hair, and the three newest styles from Magika are todays treat. The one on the right is such pirate hair, I can just see guys that RP giving that one a run. Texture change bands too, so lots of fun to mix with your wardrobe, and I couldn’t resist wearing the booty bay boots with it .lol.

I got new nails this week, aren’t they Speshul. As obnoxious as all get out, that is why I loves them. Blinged up and fabulously long…I got them in hot pink as well :P, you know you want some too lol.

Yabba Dabba Yum Yum

Pebbles

Yonks ago I did a post about Pebbles of the Now, fashion wise what I think she would wear. Todays dress and look is totally going that route again. I have always been a Flintstones fan, and wanted to be Pebbles when I was little. I should have done this post with all red hair, but who knows, maybe she dyed it when she got older lol.

The Posh dress is a release by DCNY, the dress comes with the stunning lace under or over shirt, with many clothing layers to style how you want to. The tigerstripes on a pastel background are yum, and the lace top is going to be an absolute staple for so many looks. I even threw on a belt to make the dress bottom look like a skirt, just to have even more versatility.

I am of course wearing the bra top by Maitreya underneath, but you can opt for no bra or different styled one. The possibilities are endless.

The shoes I am wearing are the latest from Kalnins, they are the Yolande and every time I blog Kalnins for some reason even though the colour options vary so much from style to style, they always work with what I plan to blog, bloggers fate for sure. The style are great for dressy or casual, and the zip front make them realistic to slip into. You as usual also get different options for colouring due to the individual areas all having their own options.

The poses I am using are all Glitterati, they extended their poses SALE, and until the 21st most of the store has been reduced to 100L a set, so make sure not to miss out on that…also if you have any store cards, use them now as they wont be accepted after that.

Candy Candy Candy I can’t let you go

I remember when I was a teen flapping at an all floral outfit my mum was about to wear out. Mind you when I was that age I only ever wore black. But the flapping was more to do with the fact that the outfit was neck to wrist, and then to ankle floral. It was so bad, there were all sorts of whiney noises made about it, so she did end up changing. It wasn’t the print that was the problem, it was HOW MUCH print. It was also a full skirt, so yeah way too much. I convinced her to do a full skirt in solid and then the top, or vice versa, but not both together, and that is how she ended up working that outfit from then on.

The funniest part of that memory is that my fashion sense comes from her, but that day I think she lost her marbles…that and the fact that it was the 80’s and fashion for the 40 somethings then, was a little hit and miss. This floral print if that large and long would need to be broken up as well, but as it is a mini, the bright colours and fun style, make it perfect for summer lunches and fun days in the sun.

I got to have fun with this floral mini by DeLa because it is mod, and had enough attachments to make it really workable with other things. The top pic, plus the sleeves of the second pic are the total outfit. But shown three different ways in the pics, and the last I took an undershirt layer and shortened the top enough to make a bustier type top with just one of the attachments. As the top comes on all layers, and is copy, this was a breeze and doesn’t effect the overall outfit at all. It is great to get so many options out of one outfit, and as the colours available are so flexible, you are not starved for choice.

Also new by DeLa is the beautiful folded leather DuDu clutch. This clutch is totally the type of purse/wallet that I would use all year round, the multiple zips on the outside just make it so realistic looking, and the purse comes with attachments for either hand. I did move that to forearm so that I could still wear my nails by Page 3. Addictia to my delight released more of the Tropica Flip Flops (THONGS) in neutral colours that make them easier to mix and match with other clothing. The HUD is so easy to use, and colour matching to skin is a breeze. I love how you can also wear them only as feet with or without the anklets, all in one is a definite win with these.

The hair I am featuring in all the pics today is from Exile, recently I was lucky to spend some one on one time with Kavar interviewing him for TOO Sexy magazine. The styles he has been producing lately are just getting harder and harder to take off, the three today are just gorgeous and April the last one is still on my head because it is HOT HOT HOT.

PXL just released the latest skin Candy, it comes in 5 different tones, only one shown here today – more to come – there are 3 brow options and a great range of lips and eye shadows, all with freckles and cleavage on clothing or tattoo layers. I am so glad also that PXL eventually went shaved, as that skirt in the 3rd pic is so low at the front it would be a huge Fashion Don’t otherwise lol. DEMO DEMO DEMO Candy, she is a lovely skin.

Got nothing on us

Oli

I went to a party to wrap up the Summer Festival at Tableau with Whimsy tonight. The whole Tableau team were there, giggling up a storm on voice. The winner of their store for 30days contest was Radio Signals who is an incredible content creator as well as RL artist. So I am so glad she won. I recently bought some of her art work to hang at home, and it looks fab. If you haven’t been by her gallery next door to Scribble, you should definitely check it out.

I was feeling so festive after the do, that I just felt all bubbly and coloured hair worthy. It is funny how for granted we take the coloured hair packs being available in some stores, what if one day they weren’t there? I know that tips come and go, but sometimes and more often than would be considered normal, you just need coloured hair. Exile has such lovely candy floss like colours, that I decided to go with both in the Candace style. Also to add a bit of flavor to the Jeans and tank from Indyra Originals. These jeans are standout fab with the detailing on the waistband.

The next two pics feature dresses by Vesna, the first one has that large scoop and as soon as I put it on I wanted to fill it, and knew exactly how. Thanks to incredible options, and both items having all layers available, I was able to wear the shirt and tie only from a dress from Fri.day, and create a new look. A mini mobstress look, what with the Fedora hat/hair also from Fri.day. The burnt orange just got some killer bling from Royal Blue and I am ready for a night of dancing. But as I already did that tonight, on with the next one lol.

The new hairstyles from Amacci are incredibly soft and fluttery, framing the face beautifully. How Carina made these styles is just incredible, as most of the hair is a small group of strands all placed strategically to form a style. Lots of prim work in these styles so don’t be wearing them to any high lag events, but don’t hesitate in buying them all because they are just gorgeous. The last two looks had me a bit rock and roll tonight, which is a total contrast to earlier this evening when I was all frocked up.

The skin I am wearing is another New skin from YS & YS and will be released at Fashion Fest. Marilu comes in a neutral tone like the one I am wearing in these pics, as well as a pale I will show at a later date. There are a lovely range of make ups, as well as numerous options. Two hair bases, and cleavage options as well. So each one has 8 options as well as a bun hair attachment if you want to go with the hair base extra tight look, and it is so much fun to cruise around that way sometimes.

One night in Bangkok

Rux

Ok so remember when you were new? when outfits were worn straight out of the box – and yes that still does happen, and I as much as the next person do it, but shhh I am telling a story :P.                                                                                                                                                              But then we grow and adapt, and we start to see things for their pieces as much as the whole story created by the designer. Or even if we don’t break down the pieces, we see more than one or two possibilities emerge. Often that is what blogging is for, to share an idea, to show the possibilities. Even if a design has appeared before your eyes in the past, someone may just captivate you with their way.

That is why many of us blog, I know it is why I do, and I know it is why my friends do. Often time restraints and backed up inventory cause us to show as is, add some accessories and done.  It may be more about the skin, or hair, or shoes. So many things can come up, and there are often not enough hours in the day…but try as we may, we want you to see what we see. That spark of interest that made us want to jump up on a pose stand and take numerous shots, crop, splice and dice and then present them however we can, so that you may just be excited with us.

I love those days, the days when an item just sings for attention and is well deserved of it. I love when a release makes me be a better blogger, and want to excel in presentation, there are releases where I know myself I have leveled up as we say, because I have just been so enthusiastic by the items.

I personally think that every single blogger out there does an incredible job, if their motivation is to share, to develop and to enhance not only your inventory lol,  but their skillset, then we are lucky and blessed to share their journey. Whether they talk lots like me, or only link and credit…whether they add lyrics or poetry, or each pic has a short summary. All in all we are lucky to have a glimpse into their creative mind, and I treasure that as much as the next person.

Now about my pic, because honestly I didn’t even intend that to go where it went ramble wise, but am glad it did.

The skin actually started it all, it is a newish release by YS & YS and even though I covered up much of the face on the left, it does feature both red or blonde brows and hairbases. The skin is also beautifully freckle adorned, but in a true fair skinned way that is just lovely. The make up on the skins is a feature more of the lips and  eye make up, so the skin having freckles is not a hindrance in anyway in that area. The brows are fantastic in the red and blonde, but I am totally boning on the red.

The dress I am wearing is a knockout, not only are the colours and fabric divine, but you actually get both with purchase. The dress comes with bra and panties, and it is an incredibly sexy look, straight out of the box.  It does also come with its own pair of fishnets, but I opted for the Allure girdle and stockings from Maitreya, wearing one of the natural pairs rather than true black, to give a softer effect. This is totally the kind of look you can imagine on a working girl in either a smoke filled tavern in france, or some back street opium den in asia. The outfit actually reminded me a lot of the old show China Beach, and Marg Helgenberger, mind you it was the Dana chick every guy I know was totally in lust with.

For the hair I went with a style from I love Olive, for both in fact, and actually had originally planned to wear the one on the right in red for the pic on the left…but then tp’d over and grabbed this Sophie style that totally rocked it. The dress reminded me of a wrap dress, so going with a more mature and dignified look I added some trousers – I love that fri.day calls them trousers – and the cashmere turtleneck from Boom. It brings so many women to mind this look, from the North-shore to Soho and beyond.

Either way you wear it, or whatever spin you put on the dresses or dresses like it yourself, make it the most fun and something that may just inspire you to jump on a pose-stand of your own and take pics – don’t forget to share them though :).

Around my world

Teal Sand

Champ Travel

Where Going

Lots of different backgrounds today, I was a bit all over the place, and then finally of course found my fav on the last pic lol. Anyway it is good to play. I was also playing with shadows earlier as you saw, having done so a few times in the past which I think I only threw on flickr. Mel, Fia and I went out and about shadow playing on day, and it was great. But still not as good as I would have liked.

The new Kirsten Viewer gave me more than even this mornings pics, but I still have to play with it some more. Usually as I told Elysium, I use two accounts to take shadow pics. As I have enough to load with my account as it is. So the alt is my pic taker on the shadow viewer, and that usually works well. Seeing as the alts also have the VR Studio HUD, it is not an issue for pic taking.

The shadows in these pics though aren’t real, they are done in ps. Anyways, about the pics. First one is a mix of some newness. The other day I was at Niniko and I am a sucker for Gacha Machines, to my absolute delight the skirt I am wearing was in one, seriously even though the pack was available, I just had to Gacha lol. Cord skirts are right up there with denim skirts, when you find the right fit, you are just in love. Speaking of love, I am sure by now all of you have been to the Summer Sunrise Festival at Tableau. If not then you best hurry, as it ends on the 25th and is actually not only fun, but is raising money for a good cause. They are raising money for the Center for Biological Diversity… and have made a collab outfit with some incredible content creators.

Also at the same time there is an incredible opportunity for one lucky person, to win 30days store space at Tableau…that is for many the prize of the century, it would make many want to start a business just for the ability to have one there. Tableau has always been that kind of sim, from way back when it was a pier style build, with cranky starfish on the ground, and all in between builds up until now. The sexy and beautiful top I have on under the jacket is one of the items available, the Sun-drop V tank comes in 4 divine colour blends, and I love them all, so much so that without even seeing them, they were the colour palettes of my four builds this past weekend…now I can match my homes lol. Emma Gilmour of Sand Shack Surf just made a commercial for her store HERE

The other great release from Sand Shack Surf are the shoes, with cork wedge soles they are yum, even coming in navy which I am chuffed to see, even if I did end up wearing the brown lol. Another item I picked up at the festival is this stunning locket, which you can of course load your own pic into . So delicate and really beautiful to wear. I of course dragged a pic of Mel in there, but the pic that comes with is adorable too.

If you have been under a rock lately, then you will have missed the huge accessories release from LeLutka, bags, hats and belts up the whazoo. The shapes and style are great, but the texturing of them is genius, they look as though you could smell the leather. They gave me a great opportunity to use the recent Around the World pose set from Storin. These poses come with an arty portfolio style bag for each one, but of course they work incredibly well with other bags, such as these. It also helped with the great toweling coat I got from Ruxy the other day. Such a surfy look down here to have a hoodie jacket like that, the only thing missing is some Mambo print.

Moving on to the beautiful Short Trench coat by Maitreya. I have so many reasons to want to wear this all the time. First off it’s cold down here and hot up where you are, but this coat would bring that altogether nicely for me. Then there are the colours, it is a pretty high chance you are going to know what colours will come out in a Maitreya release, what is new and fun for me is the names Onyx gives them. The third thing I adore in this coat is the belt, the absolute realism given to it by tieing it in a knot instead of messing with those annoying pull through loop belt things… I LOVE THAT THEY DID THAT!

I mixed some older Maitreya in there, and same with the next pic, the older Sarong top, with the new Viento skirt. The skirt comes in options, without belt, belt seperate and belt attached. The colours are light and fun, and you I like that I was able to two tone contrast with not only the skirt, but also the Aaquus Shoes. Easily tone matchable to the LAQ Aline skins.

Next time you are on the lookout for bag poses make sure and grab these ones from Storin, they really do come in handy (pun pun punnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn)

New Shoes, New Shoes, New SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOES.

All week I have been awaiting notification that these were finally released, such incredibly hot maryjane styled platforms, with not only solid colours to die for, but the two tone and print are fantastic. These shoes are wonderfully tall, and the heels are so sturdy you could dance for hours in them, and then take that long walk home because all the Taxi’s are missing in action at that time of the morning.

The colours available are a joy, and if you have a passion for brown and baby blue or baby pink you are totally going to squeel. They are out now as of a few hours ago, so grab the demos and go wild. I mixed up some clothing from both LeLutka and Maitreya, with a touch of Whippet & Buck. I layered the bustier and bratop and love that the bratop adds a little duo tone trim to the bustier, and thanks to the bustier being mod was able to tint it a little closer to the purple needed. See folks I do wear purple when it is fun :P.

I also found some old love for the minikini dress skirt from an old LeLutka release, last summers swimwear, and I love the mix of top and skirt together, not exactly the right depth of brown, but I love it, and will wear it again as a combo for sure. I ended up finishing off in the hair and black and white combo, and took Newdolly over to Eclectic Apparel to visit with E, and she liked the Dernier Cri hair so much we ended up over there buying up a storm. The hair on the right is from Fab.Pony at The Dressing room, and the left is an older Junwave style that I couldn’t resist with that hemp hatwrap combo.

A little birdy has told me that there will be more hats this week to come, but OMG you will die. Not telling from where though, but a hint is that they just released SHOOOOOOOOOOES lol.
