• Hips don’t lie

    Hips don't Lie

    I have had this belted corset look for a while now, and am a huge fan of it. I often wear the brown belts with gold, just because it stands out so much, but decided that the black and silver was a fun mix today also. The set is all included and actually also comes with a hot choker that I have worn in the past. I wanted to try my hand at mixing stores though, which of course with something like this, was not so easy…the world of fashion in Second Life has definitely changed over the past few years, but what made me laugh is that while a lot of clothing has become more revealing, dresses, tops etc, pants seem to have gone in the other direction, with a lot of pants being higher waisted or just regular fit, and that is hilarious to me, seeing that a billion years ago now pants were getting so low that I had to do a whole post on pubic hair on skins, because the pants were getting so low, everything was falling out…which actually did lead to a change in how skinners did their skins. So I did some thinking, and I thought to myself, I thought ‘SELF! Who will still have some really low rise hip hugging jeans for me to wear with this belted corset’, and myself said “TO CYNFUL”. This actually did happen, and off I went.

    I remember Cynfuls first releases, they were also denim items, and I mention that to Cynthia at least every five years or so. I probably still have them. I also remember she did some denim corsets over jeans like extensions, I need to find those, even though system layers I am on a mission now. So anyway, to Cynful I went and I saw that the Keeper jeans had been updated to include the body I wear now, but to also have the Slink Hourglass (and many others) I go back to, so that is a huge win for me, because I get to have for both. The jeans fit perfectly under the belted corset, as I knew they would, and there is a cute metal belt on them, but that has a toggle on/off switch and can be changed colour wise even if you buy the single colour of jeans. I was also able to change the button on the jeans so it was black not brass, which helped with my monochromatic look. The top is part of the Sega set too (as is the belt) and I have worn it a few times now, because the fatpack has solid colours as well as graphics, and it is just so versatile and pretty the way it drapes, it is also of course made to fit the belt.

    ADE has released this beautiful style of hair with its face framing layers at the front look. I like it because it reminds me of both layer cuts and growing out your bangs looks. It also has left, right and behind the shoulders looks, which we all know is my favourite, and I did start out that way, but decided to go with forward of the body this time, so you see more of the length and how well it fits across the chest, as there are many sizes to choose from.

  • A bit Mary a bit Rhoda

    A bit Mary a bit Rhoda

    Sometimes you can be a bit of both things, types of people or types of taste. This outfit by Tee*fy has all the frills, bows and lace of a good girl, but the length, the reveal and the corsetry of someone a little more naughty. I like the mix, the tongue in cheek innocence of it all, and the options are awesome for prints and colours. The little lamb headband by Mewsery does not hurt for bringing together that look, with the devil horns aspect which I have turned off going even further to show that there may be a little devil in all of us. The headband also has an amazing HUD full of options to change colours and make your own fun combinations.

    This hair by Monso is a very girly hair too, not only just because it has a lovely braid, but it is one of those styles that shows how girls will just grab all the long bits and tie them out of the way, or braid/plait them etc, and I love that messy layered control look of it all. I was feeling a bit cold with the bare arms so added these armbands I found in my inventory, that apparently came with boots! go figure lol, they are cute though.

  • Getting my Boho Chic On

    Getting my Boho Chic on

    I am having one of my annual layout meltdowns. I say annual, this is the kind of thing though that depending on how much Blogging I am in fact doing, can be once or five hundred and twenty five times a year. I do not do much editing in my pictures, even less now that everything is mesh. Because of that, I usually get all creative anxious and want to make the pictures I do take look presentable in some way that is fun for me, and hopefully enjoyable for you too, even if really simple, it is just how I get. In the years that I have been doing this though, it also means that I have done so many different styles, that sometimes I want to jump back to something already done, or done but now different, so pay no mind to my crazy right now, I am all over the place. I also tried to work out the dimensions for pictures to present correctly in social media, and that means limiting width and height, and goodness does that just make you nuts.

    I found this top in a Gacha, and it has all the boho loveliness that you need in a going to a festival kind of look. Even though black, I wanted to keep adding to the detail colours and felt that the olive was just perfect. I mentioned the other day great customer service, this is another case of that. The leggings and sleeves are by Blamage, and the sleeves are actually part of a top. The top part is just hidden…this is because when I purchased the top, I ached for the sleeves to be separate items, and contacted the creator, who then with very little gap in time, came back to me with a new hud that hid the sleeves or hid the top, so you get the best of both worlds. I just loved that the ruffled trim to the leggings waistband and the sleeves matched so well to the similar trim on the top.

    When I am out, and the sun is a bit stronger than expected, I often say ‘I am growing new freckles’. If you have freckles you will totally understand…the Summer blush sets by Izzie’s make that sunkissed reddish glow to the body and a smattering of freckles really bring that look alive, and that really enhanced this whole ensemble.

    The divine jewellery is another of my old and new mixes. The earrings are the latest Beachy Boho earrings set by Yummy, and the Dreamcatcher necklace that is almost 10 years old now, is also by Yummy and I think they work marvelously together. What a skill she has in creating fine pieces, and the detailing in that dreamcatcher is amazing, look at the hook and wire bending metal work that went into holding on the gemstones…that is definitely above and beyond work when you consider how rare it would be to be zoomed in that close to see it. As a fish lover, I logged in and raced to get the set of earrings, because its all under the sea type goodness.

    The whole look was fun and lively, and so the hairstyle had to tap into that cuteness, and this Batalie style by Exile did that and then some. It is actually a Halloween style, with a bat wing headband, but the headband is separate and the hairstyle on its own is adorable, and that name is just double fun.

  • Just Beachy

    Just Beachy

    I saw this hair at this round of Collabor88 and just had to have it. It gives off that dried in the sun from the surf look, that if I was to catch some in my mouth it would be salty, and I am here for that. When your hair is neither straight nor curly, but that in between, hitting this look is a blessed day, and I can even describe the day that it happened for me in RL, and how upset I was that it was just an ordinary day of the week and there was nowhere to go looking so awesome.

    Monso has released some amazing styles that I love over the years, and this one is just jumping in leaps and bounds to the head of the list. The dark roots just make it even more fun, and there is an actual style variation that puts the hair behind the shoulders and gets rid of most of the hanging in front of the face look, but no thank you very much, not today, maybe not ever for me, but I love that I do have the option.

    Speaking of options, I have mentioned before about how un-shy I am when it comes to approaching creators – with respect – about wanting more from something, and when I got this Chloe set from Smesh I was addicted to the bustier and sleeves, I believe I have mentioned that in the past, but while I loved the colours it came with I wanted more, so I contacted the creator and asked to consider making another colour palette pack…she threw me a curveball because she asked for colours I wanted, and honestly that was the thing, I did not care, I just wanted more. So to hear from her a few months later, randomly, with a v2 HUD of a few other pastel colours made me blissfully happy, because she not only added more, but remembered it was me that contacted her and got back to me, how is that for awesome customer service, I am not 100% sure where this pastel version has ended up, so if you do not see it, maybe contact her and ask. I layered the bustier over an older tank I had. I love being able to layer mesh and bom.

  • Everything is Rosie

    Everything is Rosie

    Bakes on Mesh is still scary to some, or confusing, I myself am confused by how it is, but it is, and I hate that people miss out on such amazing things because of that fear of the unknown. The confusion I often encounter, is that because it was named something other than what it is, people think it is something new to them, when in fact it is how everyone for the most part started their Second Lives in the first place. Bakes on Mesh (BOM) is system layers, that is it, pure and simple. It is the same icons we used before we had mesh bodies and appliers became a thing. We are now almost five years into it, but I still randomly see comments of people that are older than mesh, saying they will never use it. One of the reasons that I mention this, other than to start a narrative – oh how I miss the days when people used to engage with Blogs and Bloggers – is because not only am I probably BOM’s biggest fan, but also because of things that people may not think of when using it.

    People that do use it, have possibly heard of the stacking of layers, that when you wear bom layers you need to sometimes make sure that the layers are in the correct order so that each component is visible, such as you cannot wear eyebrows before you wear a skins face (tattoo layer) or the brows will sit under the skin, and you will look way too editorial.

    But it is that stacking that makes me blissfully happy, because as I do believe I have mentioned in the past, I stack multiple versions of the SAME items. Have a bra or tank top that you want to wear under something but it is sheer, right click copy and then paste and then wear as many versions of the same thing until it is no longer sheer. Have a blush that is just not giving you enough ooomph, do not go looking for another blush, copy, paste and stack multiple until it gives you more – now this may not always work, it is going to depend greatly on how the item is made, but for the most part it does work. Such as my eyeshadow today, I have 3 layers of it on, because it had blended a little too much into my face with the lighting I was using, and the foil freckles the same thing, they were not popping enough for my pic, but stacking multiple of them gave me the outcome I wanted. This may not work with everything, but the next time you find that you feel a little underwhelmed by the outcome of the BOM item that you really want to use, give it a try, right click copy then paste then add. We could never do that with appliers and you have 60+layers to play with, so go wild!

    Another highlight to my day/look today, is when different brands do such a similar colour palette and then also fit against each other so well. This top is from Rowne and the bloomers that had me logging in and racing to get are from Tres Blah. I was ecstatic to find out that the plunging V base of the top fit perfectly over the waistband of the bloomers. Then to have only a few colours of the top, but the fatpack of the bloomers, meant that I had a bit of wiggle room with the colours, and this combination was perfection. I love this combination, and can see myself bloomering all over Second Life like this. I love that they are ruffled and so feminine but have this knit look to them, that works so well with the top that is also a wool heavier mix look. Perfection for my Winter down here rebellion.

    I ran over to Lamb to see what I could put together hair wise for this look, originally I had planned to do a more lady like updo look, then thought something wavy midlength and wild…then across the room, in the older styles I saw Zelda II. Now if you were not around when this style was released, you missed what we would consider a broke the grid moment…the majority of the grid was wearing this hair for weeks. I did not have the II version, I had the original version, so I was delighted to see that there was a rose gold metal option on the HUD, so I grabbed the pastels pack, because it was definitely a whole vibe, and back to the studio I went.

    Once I had the whole look together, I was wondering, does it need a little something more…I found this lovely choker in my inventory that delightfully is MOD, and a few tints and everything was Rosie!

  • ISONIC

    Isonic

    When you have been a Blogger as long as I have, you have seen so many items come out of long standing stores in Second Life. Today I was able to mix and match newer releases with recent-ish releases, and some releases that I am not sure if they even exist anywhere for purchase but are by the same creator. That is the joy of Blogging though, styling a look together is not meant to always encourage someone to run out and buy it all and replicate what you did – mind you, if you want to do that go ahead – but more to inspire someone to go out and shop for elements they may not have, and then to remember components that they may already own in their inventory, to then use in a way that maybe they had not thought of in the past.

    Ison is one such brand, they have been around so long now, that it is hard to really remember a time we didn’t have them. I for one am glad we do, because Harry is such a lovely creator, and has such classic staple style, that as you evolve fashionably in Second Life he is there to guide that growth. I went to Collabor88 to grab this gorgeous cardigan and tank top from Ison, and they come in all the gorgeous packs that Ison is known for, I look forward to wearing each piece in many other ways in future. Their colour palettes are always so pleasing. Adding some accessories that are much older. The bag I was able to size down and the glasses are still perfect, with a colour hud that worked out so well with my look. I am and have always been – not that this is even news to anyone – a colour co-ordination addict. I cannot help it, I am that kind of person. So the mix of red, black and gold came up a treat for this look – we will ignore the fact that the bag has silver metal, sometimes you just have to go with what you have. It all paired up nicely with the high waisted jeans by Rowne.

    This hairstyle by TRUTH was also just perfect for this strolling around the city look. I really like the smoothed upper to the soft cascading waves look to it, then being able to pair it up with accessories like a headband or even just resting sunnies atop your head, whatever works, it is fun.

  • Striking

    Striking

    I do love a good braided hairstyle, but what grabs me about this one, is that the ombre section of their HUD does not just give you a tapered effect going down, but actually follows the concept of what having an ombre hair style would do if braided. Now I cannot profess to doing a lot of ombre type wearing, to know how every store does a braid if they have one, but I just really loved the outcome of this one, and it really seemed to go that extra mile. Now I am also wearing my favourite, go to hairbase by Izzie’s, this is her babyhairsv2 hairbase, which is years old now, but it has been my go to the whole time, and really added to this hair in a great way. It is made with the SLUV so works perfectly with the Genus Morph heads. This also allows me to break out my AlaskaMetro makeup that is also SLUV, and the editorial set is just perfect for this look, everything started at the top for this post, and progressed from there.

    This braid was so striking, that it needed equally striking accessories, and these earrings from Mandala are that. The mix of red, white and black, was just perfect for this look, and this great dress from Vinyl brought it all together. I am wearing bom leggings with the dress, because one, I am cold, and two, I am cold. I did however leave some room to show off my UTOPIA@Design shoes I picked up at Shop and Hop SLB21, because they are gorgeous shoes and at the moment discounted in the UTOPIA@Design booth.

  • The Vault – The Sounds of the City

    The Vault - The sound of the city

    I am still living in my Winter nod mode, because while it is sunny outside today, it is still really cold down here. I found these delightful knitted and well padded earmuffs by Pare that were a whole vibe of the opposite of wanting to hear things and instead feeling like you could just tune it all out, and sometimes that is exactly what you want to do. So I put together this going to the street markets kind of look, and pinned back my hair and off I go. Again another great Lamb style that has a pinned back section that gives realism to the earmuffs being worn. I really like being able to believe that feeling of the look.

  • The Vault – Winter Rebel

    The Vault - Winter Rebel

    When you live on the other side of the equator, you really are living a Second Double Life. It is funny how many of us there are that are not in the start of Summer right now, but all fashion and releases at this time of the year definitely lean in that direction. This is not a new rant, I think I mumble something about this every year. I am not really upset about it, it is just funny. Today I decided to mix it up a bit, with a lightweight look, but with a nod to the cold that is the other half of the world, with this great headband from Pare, the beautiful cami top is also from Pare, and check out how fantastic the fit is on those straps.

    Now the hairstyle I am wearing is a Truth Collective style by Rama. However, underneath the headband is an actual braid going across the top ear to ear. This is a lovely style, but because it was all so securely pulled back to fit under the braiding, it was also the perfect style for this headband, as it gives the real impression that the headband is what pulled back the hair…I love that.

    I also wanted to create a vibe, that said even girls into the darker edgier side of things, can have a girly day. These armlets, the lovely earrings and the bhindi are all from stores featured at The Vault. Each item has HUD options and they all worked out well together for my needs. Maybe I am out shopping for some eye of newt, or just milling through a crowd to accidentally on purpose get a few strands of someones hair, for purely innocent reasons of course.

    We can’t thank you enough for spreading the word! Whether you brought your friends or explored the Fair with your alts, you helped reach a wider audience and build excitement for the cause. Your support is incredibly valuable, and we’re already looking forward to seeing you at next year’s Hair Fair!

    Linden Lab:

    Hair Fair’s success wouldn’t have been possible without Linden Lab and it’s incredible support! Their resources streamline event creation, allowing us to focus on the magic of Hair Fair.

    Featuring Hair Fair in the Destination Guide and social media promotions amplifies our reach, attracting visitors from across Second Life.

    We deeply appreciate your accessibility. Their willingness to interact and answer questions demonstrates genuine inclusion as an event that does something important on the grid.

    Firestorm:

    The MOTD team goes above and beyond every year! Their stellar promotion efforts, from creator sign-ups to event-long coverage, are a huge part of Hair Fair’s success. They truly embody the collaborative spirit of Second Life. With not only what they do for our event, but all year every year the MOTD is something that really keeps Second Life users on track for up and coming, as well as ongoing events.

    A big thank you to the entire MOTD team! Working with them, year after year, is an absolute pleasure. Their dedication and professionalism are truly appreciated.

    They all worked so hard on making sure that everyone knew that this event was coming. They advertisements and coverage leading up to it’s opening, during the event and those that provided or linked to a full gallery are so appreciated. We are incredibly grateful and it was an absolute pleasure working with their teams of people that make these sites possible. It was a great press team effort, they provided Hair Fair with coverage and we in return promoted their sites on our websites and throughout the event, so we hope you did save them as a bookmark for all the events they cover.

    IheartSL: 

    They advertise the event on their blogger feed, that reaches many people leading up to and during the event, it is a fantastic resource for stores, bloggers and readers that want to know what is happening in Second Life, if you are a blogger that does not have their website feeding to it, fix that  so those of us that read it daily can see your work. If you are a store that wants to advertise contact them. They are the longest running Second Life feed and such a benefit to the community and Hair Fair each and every year. Thank you for what you do.

    HairSL :

    A group and website that shares Hair related activities and is also always very supportive of Hair Fair and allows us to promote the event through their platforms, we are very grateful for that, and to their team for the annual support.

    Second Life Bloggers :

    Hair Fair wouldn’t be complete without the incredible support of Second Life’s blogger community!

    We’re especially grateful for our early access bloggers. Their passion for Hair Fair shines through their early promotion efforts, ensuring a wider audience from the get-go. Their participation is truly a gift.

    Whether covering specific brands or showcasing purchased hair, bloggers like you bring Hair Fair to life! Your talent for highlighting items not only benefits Wigs for Kids, but strengthens the Hair Fair community as a whole. We’re blown away by the amazing pictures in the Hair Fair Flickr pool, contributed by many of you. You’ve captured the essence of the event and inspired countless visitors.

    My Partner and my Mum:

    Both of them do so much in the months leading up to and during the event. Mel is and has been the scripter, builder, and overall everything for 14+ years of the event. Without him we would not have most of the tools we use to make it possible year after year, he also keeps me very grounded.
    My Mum is my world, she is always so supportive of me, but also so incredibly proud of everyone that does Hair Fair – she is that kind of Mum – she was sent pictures, shown everything as it happened, and just kept cheering us all on. She also understands how important it all is.

    Thank you so much to everyone ♥
