East meets West

Darsh

I love technology, the internet, computers etc. You know when I first bought a PC, I had no idea what to do with it, or how vast the internet was. It ended up being used for emails and playing Age of Empires and the Sims for years. Seriously my trying to use the web, failed every time, because I didn’t know what to do, or what to look for.

Now I can watch my favourite T.V shows, do a blog post, be inworld and a dozen other things all at once. All my computer knowledge comes from online, from the people I have met along the way, everything I do now has been shown to me, or motivated me to learn along the way, I think that is the best gift the internet can give us…not so much the links to sites or whatever, but the connections to people that we learn from along the way. One of the most amazing resources out there are the tutorials done by other people like you and I, everyday people wanting to share their knowledge of things. YouTube is full of them, and they amaze me sometimes, especially the Second Life ones.

So if you ever think you know how to do something that either comes up as a query often, or you just want to share how you specifically do something, I urge you to do a tutorial on it, so many bloggers myself included have done one or more in the past, and it can totally change how you look at something. So go for it :).

A few weeks ago Zaara had the Deesha Cropped shirt in FLF, and it was a huge hit, so much so that there are now other colours in the range, and so cute too. I love the whole ‘little bit country’ look of the style, mixed with a more indian textiles and traditional collar look, it is like east meets west and I am all for it.

I am wearing it a few different ways today, but however you choose it will all work. The hair I am wearing is from Elikatira, her new styles for the week and so pretty. I am all for her building on her shorter styles, she does long and medium so well, but always seems to blow me away with her shorter styles, not a fan of short hair at all in RL, it was actually styles like her older pixie – etd days – that converted me into trying shorter styles in SL and embracing them to my hair addiction long ago lol.

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 :
