Ears-They’re Not Just For Hearing

They are also helpful for keeping flyaway hair out of your face, and for displaying any number of adornments. Mandala has finally released a mesh ear without piercings. Not hating on the piercings, mind, but the ears are so well done and it’s nice to be able to wear whatever earring I am in the mood for. And today I was in the mood for Zaara’s new mesh collection.

It must also be mentioned that I have spent an inordinate amount of time looking for hair that will expose said ear. These gorgeous flowy locks from Wasabi Pills were the perfect match.

Chills

The other day we had a snowstorm blow through, and while all the snow melted quickly, it was a cold, bitter thing while it lasted. After school I arrived at my car completely covered in snow  and had to do a dance in the middle of the street to shake it all off before I could get in. No doubt it was much appreciated entertainment for the passers-by.

Fortunately my lovely coat and scarf today from Shine escaped the abominable-snowman look. And Maxi Gossamer’s gorgeous Beatrice earrings are the perfect accessory.

If you haven’t got a pair or six of Ikon Innovia’s new Eternal line of eyes then you are definitely missing out. Eternal eyes have a larger wreath around the pupil, giving more variation to the iris coloring, and heightening the reflective contrast of the upper half of the eye.  From a distance:

The Last Gasp

We have had a big nor’easter these last few days and it has been sad but beautiful to see the leaves flying everywhere. It also snowed and gave us our first taste of winter. So I am taking these last few moments of gorgeous fall and cementing them in my memory.

One of my favorite things in SL this fall has been playing around with Nalena Fairey’s gorgeous landscaping grasses and trees. Her products combine realistic textures with impressionistic dreaminess. I can’t get enough.

Happy Halloween

Here’s wishing everyone a safe and fun-filled holiday. Tonight I showcase my favorite spooky haunt this year, the Calas Galadhon Journey to the Lost City sim. It’s fantastically done and as creepy as you could wish for.

I am only showing one corner of the place here but can’t you just wait to run screaming through the place? I am definitely glad my pal Caroline came along so we could shriek together.

Fateful

I went to visit Damien Fate’s new mesh build on Fate Island today and enjoyed walking around and checking out the great textures. Kungler’s has a new dress out and I fell in love with this gold one. You can tell fall is on the way when the earthy tones start calling out to you. My dreamy hazel eyes from Ikon Innovia match the dress and the ambience perfectly.

I have been wearing the Cassiopea skin from Aida Ewing of Glam Affair for awhile and it may be my favorite skin of all time. Well, at least until a new one comes out, anyway!

I love the quaintness of this movie-reel pose prop from Flowey at this round of Fluid. Whether watching a great film classic or pining for times past, this pose sets a great mood and has five different poses for watching. Now I am off to finish watching Rebecca!

Hair Fair 2012: Water

I will probably be doing a couple more Hair Fair posts later this week, but for now I have done enough damage to my monthly Linden budget!!! That being said, here are my top five from the Water sim at Hair Fair. As I have said before, these are only a few of many, many more styles that you will find at Hair Fair. All of these can be found on the Water sim.

Scheherazade

A friend of mine had his rez day recently and another friend threw a party for him with an Arabian Nights theme. Now I am not one to get into role play or even costume dress-up unless it’s something I am interested in. What we do for friends, right?

Anyway, the women’s Arabian-esque wardrobe options in SL left me frankly quaking in my boots—as one of my girlfriends says, it takes a lot to cover a girl up in SL! In my case, I needed two outfits to achieve comfort level that also fulfilled my diva attitude about fashion. The first is the Shahrazad by the talented Elvina Ewing. My sleeves, skirt veil and pants are all from the outfit. I am so impressed with the gauzy, glowing fabric of the sleeves and pants and the rich tailoring on the skirt. Gorgeous.

My top is from FallN Angel Creations and it won the shirt prize due to it’s delicate beading on the torso that also served to cover up a bit more Eliza! Well, that’s what made me look twice, anyway. That second look revealed beautiful texturing and sparkle, so this was a total win.

I just love the floaty feel of the leggings and sleeves as well as the tiny details on the knees and ankles.  And a more gorgeous Princess Jasmine-like hair than Elikatira’s Abbey I have never seen, so all in all it was the perfect combination. Sometimes it’s all about mixing and matching! All wardrobe drama aside, it was an evening of fun and friends and music from the amazing Samm Qendra. I hope you get a chance to hear this lovely lady sing sometime!

Here is the whole crowd:

Fashion For Life 2012: Zaara, Baby Monkey, Feather, Mina

What’s more fun than taking photos of yourself? Taking photos with a friend! Today I got to have a little fun time with my girl Shay, whom you probably know from Shayariel’s World of SL Fashion. You can see we had a great time seeing the sights on her adorable scooter!

Most of what I wearing can be found on the Aika sim. My blue and white top is one Zaara Kohime’s FFL items in her store. It goes perfectly with Pixieplumb Flanagan’s Nadine pumps, which are Baby Monkey’s FFL item. Hm….did they plan this???

Shay is wearing the denim one-piece dress from Sakuya Lane at Feather. The vendor is on the inside of the storefront wall, so don’t miss it! Cerberus Noel’s fabulous mesh boots are the perfect match, as is Mina Nakamura’s adorable Kim hairstyle. All of these items are FFL donation items, so that’s a lot of support you can give to cancer research!
