Keeping Up

Not being a regular follower of the Kardashians, I know pretty much nothing beyond their names. However, I very much like Ivy Burner’s tribute top and skirt, available at District 5. Tiffy Vella has also released her Blenheim stilettos at La Metallique Fair by L’accessories, where they will be on sale until September 9th.

My friend Bastion made this sweet pose which gave me the perfect occasion to wear this lovely dress from Luminary, which is available at the One Word event. Any frog this big has got to be enchanted! You can find the Frog Avatar at this round of the Arcade at the Wilds of Organica machine.

Galatee

This gorgeous dress from Endra Graves at Gatsby’s screams sophistication—and I always need more of that in my life. Tiffy Vella’s new vintage sunglasses (which I edited a bit to include a reflection) add class and style. Tiffy is rapidly becoming one of my favorite designers of all time.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Roma sim, I encourage you to check it out, especially if you are a fan of all things Italian.

Bitterblue

Damien Fate’s new FatePlay line conjures up all my favorite fantasy novel characters. The last time I blogged a Fatewear fantasy design it was for a Fire Mage. Upon seeing the Wende dress, however, I knew that it had to be the determined and studious young queen Bitterblue of the brilliant Changeling books by Kristin Cashore for today. To be truly faithful, Bitterblue’s hair is actually black, but there is enough darkness in her life so I chose Thora Charron’s sunny tones for her today.

Vintage Grace

The Collabor88 birthday event is going on and if you’ve been lucky enough to get in then you know about the wonderful items being offered this month. It is an extra-large round, so make sure you see the whole build.

One of my favorites this round is this classic sequined top from Tres Blah. Juliette Westerberg has been creating some of the most popular items at Collabor88 and this one will probably be no exception. Also to fall in love with are the Peggy T-Straps by Darling Monday. I had to go for the fatpack with these, since I plan to wear them whenever possible!

081213a

Aida Ewing also releases a beautiful line of skins at the event, called Katya. Something tells me Eliza won’t have to wait long for someone to come collect her!

081213b

The sim where I shot these photos is a 1920’s Berlin role play sim. They have a strict dress code and those who do not comply are very politely asked to leave until they are correctly attired. Any ladies wishing to visit will specifically need to have skirts or dresses below the knee. Do enjoy the sim, though, it is beautifully done.

Updos

What is more elusive than the perfect updo? Maybe it comes from having hair in RL that refuses absolutely to do anything resembling chic, but I am constantly on the lookout for stylish hair that is both pinned up and realistic-looking. Siddean Munro and Harry Hyx have proven that they are up to the task, and if this heat wave where I live continues I may be wearing them for some time.

 

I am absolutely in love with Harry Hyx’s hair textures. No smoothing or softening needed, they are perfect as-is.

Siddean Munro brings her classic style and combines it with old-world charm in her new style, Constance.

Splitting Hairs

It’s that time again, probably my favorite event of the whole year:

Hair Fair

Four sims created especially for hair addicts such as myself. Some favorites for me:

KIK (Hair Fair CLOUD)

I love how flexiprims are still being used for good!

071213a

 

CLAWTOOTH (Hair Fair Harbour) My next two for today are from Clawtooth—definitely one of my top five favorites this year at Hair Fair. Bubbles wins the market on cascading side-curls this year!

Art Deco

Art Deco is the theme for this round of Genre, and there are some wonderful items available at the event. Tiffy Vella has released another gorgeous jewelry set, called Rhapsody in Blue. Also at the event is a beautiful skin from Mayaa Thistle of Jalwa.

061813a

Two more great items hail from Synjary Miriam of Senzafine and Kerryth Tarantal of Spyralle. This gorgeous dress is worthy of any event, and my wall sconce adds the necessary dramatic accents.

It’s A Beautiful Day

It’s a beautiful day

And I can’t stop myself from smiling

If we’re drinking then I’m buying

And I know there’s no denying

It’s a beautiful day

The sun is out and music’s playing

And even if it started raining

You won’t hear this boy complaining

‘Cause I’m glad that you’re the one who got away

It’s a beautiful day

-It’s A Beautiful Day, Michael Bublé

 

This song has absolutely nothing to do with anything today, it’s just such a lovely, upbeat song and it has been in my mind since one of my graduating seniors sang it in our awards assembly at school this week. He’s got a few years left before he’s a Michael Bublé, but he did a great job and I love him just the same.

I think it’s a beautiful day for different reasons. First, Tiffy Vella has a new jewelry set out this week, which I love. There are many wonderful items at Fameshed this month, two of which are my summery shoes from Gos Boutique, and a beautiful new jewelry set from Caelan Hancroft.

050413b

 

I am not sure how Ikon does it, but out he comes with another gorgeous line of eyes. These have a particularly dreamy look to them.

050413a

 

Have a beautiful day, everyone.
