New hair, New hair, such a fun way to start any day…reminder that Hair Fair is coming July 2nd to 15th so stay tuned for more info on that.

The five beautiful styles of hair I am wearing today are the latest from LeLutka, they are such different and yet believable styles, that you would think one could become another with the help of some good product. The other exciting thing about them though is that they have ROOTS! darker texturing done at the top of the hair to show a more natural look, you can see it in the demos, and it is divine.

I had some fun styling the looks to go with the hair, a little bit of country, my church going school marm look which had me in fits and terrorising Whimsy and Newdoll, my girl on the go look, followed up with night time fun and end of weekend beach look. I love having fun this way, it is what makes Second Life Fashion so incredible, and blogging so awesome.

Three of the backgrounds came from the Second Life Stock Images Group, I am so addicted to using them now and making more, you should definitely try it.

Bring the basics back. When thinking basic T’s, Tanks and Jeans in an abundance of colours, I always think of places like Celestial Studios, LaLa FooFoo and now Jane. Jane is of course a new store name and new store in general to many residents, but the designer behind the brand is Janie Marlowe of a much older brand now run by another person altogether.

I am so glad that Janie opened Jane, a really nice collection that is growing steadily, and the work on the clothing is wonderful, finishing items so well even when covered by prims, it is a delight to shop there, even more so when you tp in looking in hope that she might have a tshirt in a colour close to what your looking for, and you end up walking away with a pack of 31 for 50L, on all layers. AMAZING DEAL! It is actually called the Layering Tshirt, and it really is perfectly named for just that.

While taking the pics of the new Baiastice Skin Marina, I stopped in my tracks when I got to this make up, that was it, I was not going to use any other for my main pic, it had to be this one. I was already in the red top as you can see slightly, and it was totally so easy to find the tshirt as stated, one tp and back again, in all of about 40 seconds if that. It was actually the easiest thing in the whole post, as I have been having rezzing and unrezzing issues for weeks now, but finally had to change viewers to stop the insanity, it took me seriously 3 hours to take those pics.

Well worth it though , if you are a lover of red lipsticks then the Marina skin is a must try for you at Skin Fair. It has an incredible tone range, the pale ones are gorgeous, and the make ups as you can see are very deep and seductive. If you are a Baiastice fan clothing wise, then you will totally enjoy these skins as they are a perfect combo.

Speaking of perfect combo’s the Fallen Tears necklace is just stunning and coming in both gold or platinum and diamond it has a simplicity that allows it to be worn casually and an elegance that can keep it on for dressier occasions, I don’t know the reason of the name, but for me the design has such a spiritual quality to it, something like being reborn, which I guess often after a big cry is how you can feel. Whatever is going on there it is a Must Have set by MOOD.

Once upon a time – some of you know this story – there was a girl – in her mid thirties lol – who came across a blog and fell in love. That girl contacted one of the owners of said blog and sent her a big texture begging to be allowed to participate, the texture was because the owner was so slammed with notecards all day that she worried hers would get filed away as she wasn’t new and she didn’t need new people hair lol.

So the adorable and ever so famous Six Kennedy responded within moments and said YES, then said she was going to contact the other partner of said blog and that is how Sasy met Garbage, who welcomed her with open arms, and an open mind and gave her the keys to the executive blogging room and it has been an incredible ride ever since.

Garbage Prototype has been around forever and ever and ever, he is so far from random anymore, but still is random by name, store name that is. I went for a visit late last night and probably grabbed a few of everything, the prices are insane. The styles are so very much like Random of old, but brighter and better with the amount of years tucked under his belt, and I for one am in hope that he makes hair again too. The top and the jeans are both from Random, and they are great, easy to wear pieces, the pants don’t have cuffs, but that is fine, because they are finished off well and come on both layers, so if you panic, you can tuck them into boots.

Don’t forget that the Garden City Relief Event is still on, that Vanity Universe Skin fair only has a few days left, and that Pure Juice is coming…

Model Chair

One of the most annoying things to use when blogging in my opinion is sit and laying down poses…I have probably many hundreds of them, and I don’t just have them from packs that I can use that excuse, no I actually fall in lust with them when shopping and then can’t work out a damn thing to do with them when in my own studio.

Often I hit the right mix and it works, and I of course always have them for my VR mobile HUD, but Diesel Works has made life just that little bit easier this week. With the release of his latest Model Chair, Rogan Diesel has made sitting easy, and not only has he provided beautiful sits in this easy to use chair,that you can alter your position in easily to fit, but also the chair moves to angles with some of the poses that Rogan himself thinks suits the pose.

A perfect way to show of shoes and other things, such as lingerie. The shoes need no introduction, so you can just go ooo ahhh at those, the Lingerie is new from Baiastice, and is so pretty, in a mix of styles and colour combos, some a little more revealing than others, but I am sure with the upcoming Valentines Day needs, you will find something you love.

New hair by Exile, is as usual swishy and delishy, two of the three most recent, I had to show pandora from both angles, because it is just too pretty. I am wearing also the Natasha Skin from LeLutka but with the added bonus of dimples from Launa Fauna on a tattoo layer…I can see so many more options such as these coming about from all over Second Life, 2011 is definitely the start of a brand new world.

The Body Co.

Body Co 6

BodyCo2

BodyCo1

Landing at the TP point for The Body Co. you could be mistaken for having some kind of an ethereal experience. The landing point is awash with a semi glowing white, that seems to envelope you, it is really quite something to see.

The build is only a portion of what looks like something more to come, if you take notice of the sign behind you as you land. But it is definitely ahead of you that should be capturing your whole attention. The Body Co. is the next installment of business ventures by Emma Gilmour. Sage is the first skin line in The Body Co. collection, but definitely not Emma’s first skin, as she has made at least 4 others over the years, funnily enough they all have similar brows.

The older by Emma skins are hand drawn, so a lot stronger on the face in some cases, but the Sage skins have a more photorealistic look to them. The body is gorgeous Emma has gone back and forth on tweaking it to its final result, and the face has a definite natural look, and is so the surfer girl turned model that Emma is so talented at achieving.

The skin is sold as a base, and then you have the options to buy make up packs, so if you don’t have a tatoo layers viewer be very aware of your limitations here and DEMO DEMO DEMO. There are brows for all people, light, medium, red and dark as well as cleavage options that will make you blush, or torment your partner like I did as it took ages to rez for him mwahahahahaha.

Also if not a fan of complete make ups, you can also get lipglazes and eyeshadows seperate, and while there you can check out the handmade soaps that are actual recreations of a soap line that Emma makes in RL with her sister in law, yes the girl even has time for that too. You can buy the soaps in RL I know many did over Christmas and it would make great Valentines gifts HINT HINT to all the partners in need of gift ideas.

Anywho the store will be open around 1pm slt today and you will love the intimacy of the space, it’s like shopping at the Body Shop in RL.

No Regrets

Nyal

The other night, probably for the 100th if not more time, I had a flashback to a regret. The regret was not buying something in Second Life, that ended up being a limited edition item. For the nearly four years since as it was a 2007 item, I have remembered it fondly and jealously…wishing that I hadn’t hesitated, thinking that it would be around another time, I also wish I had read the bloody sign that obviously must have said ‘Jewelry Fair item only ” or something like that.

So rather than scream from a tall building I took the regret to plurk, asking others if they also had purchase regrets of things they ‘didn’t’ buy, thinking like I did that it would be around long enough to get it ‘later’. I plurked the regret, even finding an old blog post pic from Fashion Victim Blog and it was even more beautiful to me in pic form, but I had never actually forgotten it, or even for that matter made it shinier and prettyer in my memories, it was exactly as it was.

On reading back through peoples responses I found that Chav Paderborn had responded with regretting to not buy a Canimal skirt, one which I knew of immediately, it used to actually be set up to buy right at the begining of her store, so you saw it every visit, and I had blogged it a long time ago. I rushed to my inventory and there it was, and even better it was transfer, so I sent it sailing in the direction of Chav with best wishes, to be able to fix that regret made me so happy.

Today I stopped in my tracks as a drop down appeared and my heart beat faster, and instant tears welled in my eyes, it was the Paper Couture set but not only was it the one that I had always wanted, but it was being given to me by an Angel, the beautiful and so generous always Milla Michinaga.

She is not only an exceptional blogger, designer and all round beauty, but she has always been so amazing to me. One of my fondest memories regarding her, is at a fashion show held about a billion years ago, and her and I were both there with many other bloggers and customers, it was so laggy while we waited that every so often one of us would crash come back resit and end up upside down in the corner of the sim – remember that delightful bug . While there Milla was being very cheeky and she tried to steal my inventory – yes I remember – and today she added to it in the most giving of ways, the set is beautiful, not only that, but it is something she cannot replace, something that didn’t loose it’s lustre and something I will always remember….thank you Milla you made me cry with such joy today.

So I was thinking, what do you regret not buying, because I would love to hear about it …..

Now for things I have that rock, these Magnifico boots I have had for ages, and blogged eons ago, but was looking at them the other day and thought, damn they are so incredibly textured and made, they need to sashay around my blog all over again.

Mixing them up with some great items from Nyte n Day, Decked is series that has the skirts and pants, tanks and long sleeved tops, I decided to incorporate those with the torn jeans and very very cute flexi skirt…adding to the overall looks the incredible new bodysuits from Royal Blue, these are done in a series of solid colours in varying shades of block colours, they are just wonderful for adding to any look, either under a top or over, or just worn on their own with skirts or pants.

Wearing the last and most recent releases of hair from Elikatira, the new Here style of a tight low back bun is going to be a favourite of many, I had a particular squeeling moment with Marni yesterday when it came out, it is such an awesome professional looking style, that works so well for those in business in SL. Frost is the style that was recently in a hunt, and of course everyone wanted it in all colours, so yay for that. Make  sure you grab them all, no regrets ;).

In many of my posts, especially my early on ones, everything started with the hair. I love Second Life hair, I think that even though I started just after flexi was created, it has always been my favourite item of all things.The styles, the colours, the techniques, how they have changed over the years, what was popular once faded out, and then can turn around and become ever so popular again. The sculpties put us back into static hair mode, and when flexi mesh sculpts come about, the whole world will change again. Lucky for us Elikapeka Tiramisu is back, and back in a huge way.

Elikatira her new brand opened it’s doors quietly on the weekend, no fanfare or fuss, it was not needed, because as soon as the wind carried the message that she was open they came in droves. Many will remember the old between builds times with ETD, sitting on the side sims waiting for her to open, trying to cam in and get a sneak peak. I remember one such event that actually included free only for group members, two packs of unreleased hairstyles. To have these was to really feel something special. I even know a girl that will say she met me over a gift box at ETD, but in this case it was a misunderstanding I helped her with.

There are fewer and fewer stores around now that you can have such memories of, I have a few ETD ones, and now am so excited to have the chance to make new Elikatira ones. The new opening brought with it ten new styles, and one of those is a store gift, called Sey – nto yet shown. The ones I am showing today, range from casual to dressy, and all can interchange in that regard, but pointing out the second one which is Escape, as soon as I put it on I ran to google and looked up Sharon Stone Basic Instinct, and sure enough the hair is almost exact. True perfection for shorter hair lovers, with a definite attitude going on.

While I couldn’t at the time find the white turtleneck and coat, I took it to now, and mixed some Aoharu, Deetalez and Nyte n day. The Aoharu poncho coat though advertised as White, has a greyishness to it, so lucky for me the white knitted skirt from Deetalez that is gorgeous, was mod, and I was able to bring it to the same tone. A little revealing cropped sweater from Nyte n Day and to finish off the stunning fringe western boots from Anexx. I adore this look, and the hair, wowza. Back to the top though, I am wearing the new coat from Baiastice, this is a very nice cut coat, with shoulderpads, and adornments of gold.

Very stylish and worn with either pants or in this case the Calypso slip from Eclectic Apparel – the go to of the season – you can look amazing for any situation. I really like the somewhat messyness of the Away updo, it has a real lived in look, as does all the Elikatira hair so far, not too immaculate, because that ends up looking way too fake, this one looks like I have worn it all day, and with the removal of some pins and some finger tousling I would be HOT. My first hair in SL was pigtails, and I don’t care that I am 38 I will wear them in SL and I would damn well still wear them in RL, maybe not like the first ones, but definitely similar to these. Wearing with one of my favourite sweaters from Eclectic Apparel, I had all that skin to show off, that I added the lovely necklace from Exodi. Some gorgeous slim fit jeans from Deetalez – I love these  and they are not too low slung, so they are wearable by all.

With that and the next pic I am wearing the Prima sandals by Kalnins, usually a multitude of colours, but in both cases the all white options worked well. The next outfit is how I end the day, because it is too perfect to not want to stay dressed in and pretend it is a lazy saturday. The clothing is from Zaara, and these boho style prints and pieces are just perfect for the upcoming heat I am expecting down here. The fabric choices, the colour combinations all work in these pretty styles…adding some older Jewelry also by Zaara and the loose tied plait down the back in the form of Melody, I am totally loving the look.

You may notice I am wearing two different skins this post, the Phoebe 2 and Claudia 2 by LAQ, the up close pics are Phoebe 2 I will do Claudia 2 another day, but it is so amazing to see the difference in both, Claudia being like an older sister to Phoebe. Claudia 2 still have a lot of attitude while Phoebe 2 is still somewhat innocent. Try them both out, and they both come with hair base options, and there are a lovely amount of add ons you can purchase at the store now, including the recent addition of different sized cleavage options, and hair base/brow colours.

All the poses used in this post are from Frooti, a new store and not so new resident. Willow Zander has opened up her pose store at Elikatira sim, as you can see from the layout pic. I am so glad to see Willow having her own store, as many of you will know she has been the Manager behind Celestial Studios,and now Elikatira and of course a fabulous blogger. If you have been by the sim, you will have noticed there are stores that are empty, you can apply to rent at Elikatira, which is kind of awesome, giving everyone a chance from the start, rather than opening with a sim full. Sand Shack Surf is there already too, the store Emma built looks fabulous. Click HERE to SLURL’s Page. Picture :

There’s a Fair down there

Elle2

Jewelry fair is coming to towwwwwwwwwwn. Oh and just noticed it looks like I cannot tint my feet, well that is just lighting I did after the fact and am too focused on wanting taco’s now to fix it. I fixed it, it was annoying me, lucky I always save a new copy when doing anything to pics.  Apparently it is taco night at Hempy’s house and it is all I am going to think about now.

More hair base tattoos from UnBra, seriously if you haven’t run over since my last post you are a nut…they are super duper and a real good deal price wise, with demos available you can see what ones work best with your skin. So as I was saying, Jewelry Fair starts tomorrow and I got a sneak run around with Whimsy last night, we had Newdoll in voice and kept showing her pics as we went. As Whimsy would say, Dear Mr Internet, please make a thingy that will auto add links to things I type and link to often. Thanks in advance Sasypants.

Or if anyone knows of stuff that does do that, please let me know lol.Oh yeah Jewelry Fair, ran around the four sims, the theme is Beauty and the Beast, I am thinking they mean the original with the rose and stuff, and not this one which I loved so much as a teen. There are market stalls and castle walls and lots and lots of pretty treasures. There is even a kissing booth. The money raised will go to Oxfam International , the money will be from auctions, fees charged to participate, and also some vendors willl have special items out in their booths at 50% going to charity. You can see on their website some of the items that are set out, and it was a great mix of RP Jewelry, fashionable accessories, and truly special keepsakes.

The first items I am showing from my purchases running around, are from Cento Pallini, new to me store and all win, from their stunning onyx pieces, to the one that won my pisces heart, the Blessings of the Sea set. So pretty and just the right colours to wear with the new Miel items Elle. Brand new sculpted and non sculpted seperates, to wear with many options of clothing, not just their own, but as usual their colour pallette is amazing and works so well on past releases. You not only get the main colours, but light, mediumand dark and striped versions of each.

I am also wearing the latest skirt from Berries Inc, the store has moved to new location main store wise, and the store looks wonderful. These new skirts have such a folksy charm, very late 60’s 70’s, kind of like the cord ones we wore as kids, well I wore as a kid, I don’t know what you wore unless you were a kid then, yes Sasy has had way too much redbull.

It is going to be one hell of a weekend, we have Jewelry Fair starting and Call for Couture, both amazing events, so you best be clearing out the closets and making folders to pour the newness into.
