Maybe you wonder where you are, I don’t care

Spent last night in school with Sasy, and Fia.  Afterwards spent some time dancing with Sasy at The Deck, listening to 80′s tunes.  She was organizing inventory, while I played in my Meghindo folder some more.   While Hair Fair kept me busy, it can kinda drain ya for blogging, so it’s nice to play a bit before you get back into the swing of things.  I am way over scheduled so I need all the play I can get.   I picked up this great guitar case at Sey,  I have a thing for good band gear, as I am in a band with Sasy, called The Juggernauts.  Sasy plays tambourine, while I play fast and loose.  Sasy says she likes to play tambourine cause when she whacks me on the head with it, it makes a great sound.

This is an outfit called Caval, from Meghindo’s.  Love these long denim boots.  FUCKING sexy right!  The whole outfit consists of these denim boots, a dress, or continuation of the denim boots into jeans that’s beyond hot.  These awesome sequins cape and top, love my hip spikes!  They totally say BACK OFF BITCH. Thank good for Ploom, just sayin, awesome hair, Jade skin from Tuli.  Animations/poses are Cupid Shuffle from some dance store I don’t recall, and a pose by Long Awkward Pose.  My guitar case is from Sey, click change several colors.  They have more versions, plus drum kit bags.

So Sasy and I were out fashion trolling last night.  Usually this evolves into massive binge shopping trips that involves a rotating gaggle of girls, some minor flirting and dragging along of the men we find along the way, and that bleary moment 12 hours later when you log on wondering where the hell all your lindens are, and wtf is all this in your inventory, followed by another couple of hours of trying on clothes and recalling it all over Skype.  Yeah, good times, good times.  This started the same way but ended quickly when Sasy dragged me over to Meghindo Romano’s store appropriately named Meghindo’s.  After combing through the lovely lingerie, the swimwear, the little party dresses,  I turned a corner and saw their outfits.  I died.  I love when designers throw together an entire look.  I love that one easy moment of click wear a folder and being ‘done’.  To throw on their idea of a moment in time, an event, etc.   Meghindo’s does this very well.  She is a very clever designer, using  multiple layers, and layer work to her advantage.  Her jewelry, amazing big earrings, are flexi alpha, which is a fun twist.  Many prim parts are done flexi, and completely different then I have seen before.  She has a several group gifts available, her group only being $250 to join.  One outfit was the coolest outfit, I totally began imaging various places my avatar would wear it to, and what I loved about it were the prim pant legs.  Not your typical sculpts, or old school cones/cylinders they were flexi giving a really nice evening pantsuit touch to it.  I liked the movement.   The jewelry was all on layer available with or without the top.  Very fun effect.  Many of her outfits come with full accessories from shoes, handbag, clothes.  The price range for an entire outfit as shown in my photos runs about what you would be paying if you purchased them as separates, and pulled a unique look together.  I am showing off several of Meghindo’s outfits, and can’t wait to photograph more, they are so fun.  I thought I would show them off playing around with a style of layout I am totally stealing from Eve Kazan at Mademoiselle. She blogged Hair Fair 2010 Recently using this, and my attempt is very amateur in comparison but I liked it enough to wanna play around with it.

I’m wearing hair from Hair Fair 2010 from a new to me store.  I knew about them, but only as they were new sim mates, and holding out on putting out  their hair until Hair Fair. Shown are Natasha Likes Hot Rollers, Natasha Loves Boris, and Riley.  Three formal updos, Riley is their store freebie hair style available in a naturals pack. I love naturals packs, can I say it enough? Shown from left to right from Meghindo’s are Diplomat, Admiral, and Faded.  Shown with Diplomat, is lacey face tattoo from Masquerade Parade.  It comes with several variations, light, dark, and tintable (viewer 2.1+ only).  I can’t wait to play around with my outfits some more, and blog them again, and mix these separates with some other pieces.

Mina @ Hair Fair 2010

Mina is a store that’s new to me this year, and it’s been fun to get to know them through their offerings this year.   My favorite at the fair is Stacey, which is a very relaxed updo, with attachable ponytail.  It comes with 2 variations of the updo portion, with, and without daisies.  The ponytail itself is also adorned with daisies.  Bonus it’s a charity hair, as well as the Thulani.  Thulani is a versatile unisex hair, as well as the Debbie, which is shown here in Cranberry.   Carice is a soft, mid-length hair, with a bit of a wave to it, very subtle, very nice.

Paper Couture & Mina

A while back someone posted a plurk highlight photos of a country wedding they had found on flickr.  We wondered over the splendid photography, and I was determined I would try to emulate some of the principles at play in them.  When I saw Paper Couture’s Crossroads dress, I was sure this was just the dress to attempt for this, partnered with this Stacey hair.  However I envisioned something a little more than what I settled for, as I really just don’t have the time to play around doing a full attempt at shadows in Kirsten.  So here it is, minus the shadows, extra props, lighting, etc, all that can happen another day.   The crossroads dress is a lovely mermaid style dress, with details over the bodice, very simple, very elegant.  It also comes with a grey shrug not shown here.  I have played it simple with the jewelry throwing on a turquoise and silver necklace from Zaara, and a pair of western boots (not viewable) from Adam n Eve, complete with Surf Couture, sheaf of wheat for my mouth.

Clawtooth @ Hair Fair 2010

Clawtooth @ Hair Fair 2010

Bubbles Clawtooth, of the Tableau Clawtooths aka Clawtooth by Clawtooth, has made yummy hairs this year, many of them with a vintage origin.  The French Connection is tres chic, and very nautical at the same time oh la ahoy, viva la resistance!  The beret is texture change which gives you tons of options, and really hugs your head well accenting your bangs/fringe.  Other designs from Clawtooth this year are RockinRolls, a fun victory roll hair, follow up another victory roll hair he did awhile back.  I love it. My Shilova is a chic short hair that I think can go from casual to evening wear. It’s very 1930′s, yet very contemporary.  You’re A Star, is exactly old Hollywood glamour, it begs for a satin gown, and a tiered fur stole with tails.  Turnip Sorbet is Clawtooth’s charity hair, its very waif like, adorable, and versatile.  Hair Fair 2010 is ongoing through September 19th.  To see what stores or get slurls to it , click here.  For maps of all stores locations on each sim click here.  Check out the inworld demo group to pick up demos!  Know before you go!  This year Hair Fair charity hair styles, and bandana donations go to help pay for custom-made Wigs for Kids.  To get some tips on managing your settings for attendance at Second Life events like Hair Fair click here.

Mystic Bubbles French Connection

Mystic Bubbles French Connection

I loved the possibilities insinuated by this hair so I paired it with a navy peacoat from en Svale, and headed over to Mystic to take shadow photos.  They were quite fail for me, but luckily Sasy is better then me at it, and took these for me.   I’m also wearing a blue strip turtleneck from Coco, I love the effect of the sculpted bottom portion, specially with this shorter peacoat.  I have absolutely no idea whose shorts I am wearing, and my apologies to the creator.  I am usually able to recall such things easily, and didnt make notes at the time this photo was taken, 1 free item from my store to the first person who accurately names it, and it appears in my inventory.  I am afraid it’s the same with the makeup version of this Chaisuki skin, you will have to try on demos to find it,  it’s most likely in the Vienna line, peach tone, as I have been wearing those alot lately.

The Strand @ Hair Fair 2010

The Strand @ Hair Fair 2010

The Strand is  brand new to Hair Fairs in general, but they really are a fledgling store, that’s been here a bit and that’s gaining notice.  I know of them as they moved their store to The Deck where I have my store sometime this past summer.  The Strand has a gift of several hairs that have been in their store previously, in a limited range of colors, one of which is featured in my photo in the upper right corner.  I make no guarantee that this is one of the colors available, as I have previously obtained the hair. The other three styles are all charity donation hair, benefiting Wigs for Kids.   I love this Sammi Hair, the tweed hat at an angle is too cute.  A pack of it comes with 3 variations of tweed.  What I love about this store is they’ve got what they call an Undecided Pack featuring a sampling of shades from each pack.  It’s basically a naturals packs, you might be familiar with the term from ETD.  The other styles feature extensive twists, and plaiting, with Jacqui featuring plaids around the crown, and Blossom being the height of fashion as an avant garde hair updo.   Hair Fair 2010 is ongoing through September 19th.  To see what stores or get slurls to it , click here.  For maps of all stores locations on each sim click here.  Check out the inworld demo group to pick up demos!  Know before you go!  This year Hair Fair charity hair styles, and bandana donations go to help pay for custom-made Wigs for Kids.  To get some tips on managing your settings for attendance at Second Life events like Hair Fair click here.

September Outing

I had the chance to get out this afternoon to location hunt for photos, stop by some favorite scenic places, and eventually stop by Paper Couture to pick up a few things from their brand new Fall/Winter 2010 Collection.  I’m wearing the Typhoon boots from Paper Couture, that are very Now and very Yummy.  I love this rich texture, and color on them, they also come in black, eggplant, and this amazing grey combo that’s very timeless for concept wear.  I love how the tops  match the lower colors in my floral skirt from en Svale.  I wore a Jacket from Maitreya in Ochre to pick up the colors at the top of the skirt to continue the theme, although you can’t see it, under the jacket I have a brick colored shirt from Celestial Studios on.  Up top, its my fun, lush, Chaisuki lashes, with the beautiful Tuli skin with eyeshadow to coordinate, Armidi True Enhance Nails in Gold.  Yeah I said that!  Make a left when you walk into the hair store and they are right on the wall, golds in 3 colors there, many other shades too and only $90L.   I also am wearing new earrings from Paper Couture that are so big and so amazing, I LOVE THESE.  I don’t know if I can take them off, but damn they must weigh pounds!  I am in love!  By the way, if you are wanting previous collections from Paper Couture, they keep them on Xstreet.  I love them for that.  Jewelry Clothing

Raspberry Aristocrat @ Hair Fair 2010

So in the middle of this, my friends took off to do the Kawaii Hunt and left me on my posestand.   I will remember this.  Today I have Raspberry Aristocrats hair, she was such great find last year, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who waited all year for more hair.   It was well worth the wait considering her 3 Darlas hair is a short bob with 3 variations of bangs/fringe. 3 Darlas is her donation to charity hair, and an excellent deal on top of that.   Continuing the trend at her store she has Halia, Fala, and Solace all in the bobbed hair range.  Fala features a flexi option, Halia is a longer bob (limited time store freebie) , and Solace is an angled cut. Lemondrop and Brooklyn are pulled back pony styles.  Very relaxed, I love the variations of them. I am so glad to see some more hair out of this store. All hair featured is shown in Blonde Flax shade.

Raspberry Aristocrat & Ibizaare

Raspberry Aristocrat & Ibizaare

With my Raspberry Aristocrat hair, I have on a new release from Ibizarre.  Get ready to start the fall season with this cute babydoll style sweater with flower print.  I love the knit texture, and the prim work is very cute.  I had some viewer issues that created an issue making the seams derez leaving a flesh toned line where they meet.  I would have them correct from time to time, and even asked some friends on different viewers what they saw, and confirmed this was a rezzing/viewer issue.  The seams are fine. I corrected this by wearing other clothing underneath on all layers to match the tone of the sweater.  Even with a turtleneck and t-shirt I had most of it corrected with a small bit under the arms remaining a problem.  I just ignored it. I have styled the sweater with these cute grey jeans and belt from INDI Designs Freya outfit.  The sweater was so Mod, I had to have a pair of skinny pants.   I accessorized with red as much as I could to really make everything pop.  Red journey.boots, and loop jewelry from fri,day, and bright red gloves from 5th & Oxford were perfect.  I love these gloves, I need to go grab them in all the colors available.  This was a purchase I made for another outfit, and I just don’t want to take them off.  All this red really plays off the red lipstick from the latest skin from Tuli released at The Dressing Room…Helena 02.  I love that my Launa Fauna dimples go perfectly with it.  I picked up this cute tote from Wasted Youth, it comes with a bow option as well.

The Ibizarre Helena Sweater also was part of a release that included matching leg warmers, and capri length leather pants. Shown above I have the whole outfit styled with its matching Helena items, and then also my way.  Available in Black, Brown, Grey and Lilac.  It was hard to separate these from each other for a style post, but I think it worked well.  The Helena cropped leather pants have a great texture, and I can’t wait to mix them into my wardrobe.  The leg warmers come in floral, and plain.  I love the matching knit texture they have, and these would be especially cute over jeans.

Miel @ Hair Fair 2010

It’s cocktail hour for Miel at Hair Fair 2010, with their line up of Cosmo, Martini, and their charity donation hair Mojito.    Cosmo and Martini are classics, and softly styled,  suitable for a variety of looks.   The showstopper is Mojito an amazing prim curly do thats chic, and could still easily be worn on child avatars ala Shirley Temple -ish.    Miel has gone from fashion to including hair at their store this year.  It’s always worth a look when they do a release to see what they have come up with, anything from their recent release of cowboy boots, to sculpted tops.  I am over the moon about some of the curly hairs at the fair this year, and this one of them. Miel’s hairs are available in 5 shades of each color group, Brown, Black, Blonde, Red.  I am wearing the 1 in each shade (cept Black).

Miel @ Hair Fair 2010

Miel @ Hair Fair 2010

I wanted to show of this hair and went for a slim pencil skirt from Ingenue.  Many people disregard systems skirts as relics in sl, I have to tell you thats simply not true.  Pencil skirts in general show off your rear in general, that’s the gimmick, while creating a slim look.  A system skirt will put some junk in your trunk due to the fact it can’t hug your butt cheeks, point blank.  The trick is left to designers at creation to keep the highlighting of the skirt to a minimum.  There should only be enough shading to make some natural wrinkles in the fabric and nothing more, specially near the rear or thighs. With the lower back half of the skirt becoming darker under the buttocks if any shading at all.  Ingenue, a vintage fashion house in Second Life knows the trick and has these lovely Secretary pencil skirts.  They come in a number of muted tones, with jacket layer upper high waist, and a prim option of peplum skirt toppers. I fell in love with them, and bought them all.  I topped off the skirt with this Bourgewhat? top from Veschi, it’s two toned, similarly hued to my skirt, and has prim collar and cuffs that just don’t stop.  I threw on my dream.booties from fri.day in Red, with my Ahi jewelry set from Miel.  I love the makeup on my Bruna skins from Glance, this one is Colour, and I find it really suits this style.

Scribble @ Hair Fair 2010

Scribble @ Hair Fair 2010

So what I love about Hair Fair, is its so very much an exposition.  Consider the Worlds Fair, or your State/County Fair, the best get to go, and each show off their latest talents, and innovations in products.  We’ve seen some amazing concept hair aka avant garde, we have seen some amazing designs that we haven’t seen inworld yet.  Some cover the needs of high fashion, or alternative sub sects of style, or even the most basic of needs…like Scribble’s Cleaning Day.    You might already be familiar with their braided crown hair, but Scribble is new to me hair wise as I am always ways paying attention to the clothes in their store when I go.  Designer, Radio Signals has created 5 styles showcased at Hair Fair 2010.   The hairstyle Scribble chose for Wigs For Kids, is called Saturday Morning, this cute short pigtail styles.  Everyday casual, and one that would be adorable on a child.  Also released are two sideswept styles, an updo, and my favorite Cleaning DayCleaning Day features this adorable kerchief, the pattern of the fabric is this lovely dark red with paisleys.  It’s just what I always wanted.

Scribble @ Hair Fair 2010

Scribble @ Hair Fair 2010

I couldn’t wait to wear it with my Sianita dress from Reale,  I have it in this pretty denim/yellow print, but am wearing the dark denim/pink version for this post.  Reale has a knack with the dresses they make, always a favorite in my wardrobe.  I last wore their tulip dress to an Oscar party.   This dress is a fun, casual denim babydoll, with hints of retro/vintage with it’s prints, and rick rack.  I kept it casual yet nice with my Nantucket Spectators from Surf Couture in Red, and a Hobo Bag from Celestial Studios.   My skin choice was Laqroki’s Alice, a nice dewy skin.  I pulled out some cute jewelry from Luc, to keep the casual look going.  My poses are from Olive Juice, and so cute.

Shag @ Hair Fair 2010

I was thrilled to see Shag at Hair Fair 2010.   Guys will love it as they made guy hair, which you can see blogged by Gasolinealex Serevi on YouStyleSL.   I’m doing three hair styles for girls, one being this great hat hair called These Things.  It features color-change hat, and band, and this cute low ponytail down the back.  Shag also made this thick braided pony called Let Me Kiss You with whisps escaping the braids.  It’s very casual, and very cute.  I love the hair they have set for charity called Breathe.  It’s a full big hair, a bit tousled.  It’s easily my favorite of their Hair Fair 2010 release, and I am in love with their chestnut shade now enough to wonder what color have I been wearing all this time from them.  Hair Fair 2010 is ongoing through September 19th.  To see what stores or get slurls to it , click here.   This year Hair Fair charity hair styles, and bandanas donations go to help pay for custom-made Wigs for Kids.

I chose Breathe with this dress I picked up from Gizza Creations.   This empire dress is full of color and movement, a bright happy dress to spend Labor Day in.  I’ve piled on the jewelry for a little tropical end of summer glitz, all of it from YS&YS, added more color with my makeup/skin from Chaisuki and grounded it with these summery Maitreya Gold  IXKin’s in cocoa.

fri.day @ Hair Fair 2010

While I was initially was going to just feature the hairstyles themselves, once I had put on Sasha, I knew exactly I had to blog this dress I had tucked away, it had been waiting for this hair.  I went for a soft look overall, sticking to Jaded Blond as a hair shade.  The Sasha has this lovely scarf/ribbon, which is color-changeable,  I went with chocolate and chose to use that tone to accessorize with.  It took 24 hours of seriously thinking about who and where this dress was.  I knew I wanted this dress but couldn’t recall who made it, and if I even owned it.  I began a long hunt trolling all the stores featuring sculpted clothing (really known for it), and saw this at Aoharu and remembered I bought them in packs during their big sale months ago.  When I first bought it I tucked it away until I found accessories for it, and finally now I have them.  I love the look of Sasha with it,  teamed up with a dream catcher bag also from Fri.day, and these awesome mary jane jumps from G. Field.  Thanks to Winter Jefferson, for remembering where I could find them.  I love the big thick strap on them, with the color changeable trim and buckle.  So retro, so now, and so chic.  I went with one simple set of bracelets from Zaara, in lieu of heavy amounts of jewelry I love to wear.  I would have loved to see this look with perhaps a ribbon choker, a broach, and charm bracelet.

How to request items to blog

Being a new to the scene blogger is terrifying.  You are a ‘little fish’ in a big pond.  Get over it. You’re like everyone else, and surprise we all are scared to send requests to blog items.  What?  Yep.  Why?  Well, humans are afraid of negatives, and take even a no personally.  One of the strongest lessons you will ever learn in life is being able to tell people no.  For your own sanity, to keep your goals in line, and to be happy.  It’s a word we are afraid of.  But remember the saying  “The worst they can say is No.”. Don’t be afraid of the no.  Craft a well written request.  State your business right away.  Who, What, Where, How.

Hi, I was recently in your store, and wanted to contact you to let you know I blog fashion and events on Virtually Dressed http://virtuallydressed.wordpress.com/.  I would love  the opportunity to blog (state what you want: example your store/new release/specific outfit).  Please let me know what your bloggers policy is.  It’s been a delight to find you.  (be honest, not smarmy.  Yes sometimes I do find it a delight

)

That probably wasn’t the best I could do, but I’m mentally already focused on what I want to communicate to you here, and my heavy to be blogged folder at the moment.  This is a quick post to inspire you to step out of your shell and help you promote you.

Consider your blog and your blogging style. You might review, showcase, style blog, etc.  So please be careful when you ask for review copies, when you want to style blog.  I would leave review as a word out if it.  Review might scare off a designer if you aren’t going to be actually be reviewing but instead showcasing.  Be confident in your request.  Be willing to drop it on a content creator, and let it go.  If you don’t hear from them ever again, don’t be upset, just let it go.  If you get a ‘no’ response, don’t be upset.  Be gracious.  You may or may not be given the reason. Whatever the case you can’t force the issue.  You might not be right now, but you might be given an opportunity later.  I might feel the need to elaborate on this later and do another post, I am open to tips from other bloggers and or designers being posted here for helpful advice.  Remember HELPFUL ADVICE. ;-)  We’re a community whether we like it or not and its time to make it work.
