Skin Fair 2013

Luciana Button of Anymore has a beautiful new skin for the Skin Fair this year. Genesis comes in five tones and has a lovely, soft look to it.

Stewart came around while I was doing my pics and the time just seemed right for an impromptu dance. You know you randomly dance in fields too, admit it!

The Long Winter

February is my least favorite month. It’s that last winter month before spring starts to slowly take over. It’s the shortest month of the year but always feels like the longest. It also happens to be the coldest month of the year where I live, so that doesn’t help. So like it or not, winter is not ready to take its leave yet, and we must find warmth and sunshine in our friends and those we love.

There are some lovely designs available at two of my favorite events in SL this month, Collabor88 and the Men’s Dept. Stewart’s fashion patience was tried to the utmost for this one, but it was oh, so worth it! Stewart’s jacket and sweater are from this round of the Men’s Dept. My skin is yet another beautiful creation from Aida Ewing at Glam Affair, and my colorful accent ring is part of a fun set by Yummy’s Polyester Partridge. If you haven’t checked these events out lately be sure to pencil in a visit!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Cobalt

A few weeks ago I did a post about a character in a novel I recently read called Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. Well, this week’s color reminded me of that character’s Earth-living alter-ego who likes to hang around public cafes and who keeps her hair a brilliant blue by using magic. I have to say I’d be tempted myself if I were magic!

Congrats to Mayala Loon who wins the Croire Triple Portraits Pendant this week. Next week I wanted to give away this jacket from Lapointe & Bastchild, with which and am completely in total double-dutch love with, but sadly it was a Fashion For Life exclusive. So I went to see if they had anything similar and thank goodness the jacket is not gone forever! I will give away the next best thing (and really the only thing that’s available…the whole “Drift” outfit! And for once there is an option for the gentlemen as well! Just leave your comment below to be included in the giveaway drawing.

    I love it! The hair and the shots are beautiful! And I’d totally be tempted to keep my hair a different color if I had the magical ability to do so.

  9. ~Caroline

    The “pop” of pink on your lips really accentuates the blues. Very catchy, Eliza!

Fashion for Life 2012: L&B, Miamai, Gos, WTG

There is so much amazingness at Fashion For Life! I am not sure which is more fun, shopping for the clothes or looking for places on the awesome builds to take the photos. Zeit, built by Grace Loudon, has to be one of my favorite sims, with its retro colors and bright atmosphere…the filling station gacha building was a must have for today’s photo.

My dress today is a gorgeous partial-mesh creation from Miamai. I just love how designers are using mesh to fix that skirt prim-flap issue. Well done! I chose to wear it with my new favorite jacket in the world from Lapointe & Bastchild. I am so in love with the textures from this team, they are always detailed and flawless. And my tribute-to-Grease hairstyle is from Marleen Vaughan. Take that, Sandy!

031212c

And as if that weren’t enough! The FFL Meimei skin is giving me all kinds of chills with it’s smooth texture and creamy tone. I am wearing a tan overlay tattoo because it was a little bit on the pale side for me, but if you are looking for pale and gorgeous, Meimei is your girl! And I also love this intricately detailed jewelry set from WTG. And a shout out to my girl Maxi Gossamer, for her incredible mesh Swallow Wings lashes. I admit I was a bit skeptical when I first saw them, but I have seen the light!
