Collabor88 for November 2012 opened with a new themed collection called Painted Desert.  Brilliant theme, the color palate was refreshing and dead on for this theme.  From the collection I’m wearing Clawtooth’s I Never mesh hairstyle, Clawtooth released two hairs, this one is similar to the other, and features bangs/fringe. I’m also wearing jewelry from Collabor88 – Maxi Gossamer Jewelry’s Tarifa mesh necklace, and matching mesh earrings.  They have color change/resize via menu, just click the jewelry. It’s very lovely, very southwest.  I’m using these items to style with DCNY’s new mesh Boho Baby Dress.  It’s a cute dress in a variety of fun colored paisley patterns, from subtle buttercream to its a bohemian Christmas with Gingerbread.  The design is cute, featuring ties on the bodice and lovely trim. I’ve styled the cloud colored (cerulean) with matching cerulean shoes and purse from Maitreya.  Izzie’s recently released this new skin Geanna. Shown here in my favorite tone Sunkissed, you can see its a lovely, fresh, youthful look.  I’m wearing the nude rose lipstick, and silver eyeshadow.  Izzie’s skins features lipsticks, eye shadows, freckles, cleavage options, and are avialable in a variety of tones.

Hair Fair 2012 – Clawtooth

Clawtooth Seredipity Hair Fair 2012

Bubbles Clawtooth released four long hair styles at Hair Fair 2012.  I’ve been so busy for such a long time, I haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy some Clawtooth hair even though Bubbles is very active in releasing hairs. Shame on me, cause I love Clawtooth, and apparently I have really been missing out.  So while I help organize and build Hair Fair, depriving myself in the process of hair, it makes it all worth it’s still exciting for me.  The release included 2 long loose hairstyles, one featuring a lovely victory type curl/swoop, and 2 braids that were whispy about the face.

Alphabet Challenge-C

Alphabet Blog Challenge-C

Letter C in Willow Zander’s Alphabet Challenge made me mixing and matching from a variety of stores. It took awhile but I am happy with my outfit. I used part of one of my favorite outfits from Last Call…Compliquee’s layered knit tank, under a store gift Hawaiian print shirt from Connors.  I continued the casual theme with Chinos from Maitreya, and Surf Co. wedges. I took liberties with the letter C by wearing a skin from a Chic event from Laura Hurley.  I love this casual look, and had fun putting it together.

Thinking of fall

Comfy Brown

To be perfectly honest, I am burnt out.  My real life is full of deadlines, activities, chores, while my second life is equally full of them.  I find myself in a zombie state at the computer unable to focus on anything that isn’t completely a waste of time.  When I walk away to take care of a non computer related real life task, I become just as unfocused, and unable to complete the task.  So I muddle through, hoping somewhere along the way I get energized, and able to get back on track.  So a quick style post, based on I know I should blog, and I was wearing it and liked it.

Vanity Universe Skin Fair 2011 – Aleida (Valentina)

 

Vanity Universe Skin Fair 2011

Aleida - Valentina - Body

Aleida is a new to me skin store. Shown here in Sunkissed tone, and the makeups with no prim lashes worn, there are more makeups available then I have shown. Each skin has a hair base, and cleavage option on the actual skin, along with light and dark hairbases, and freckles on layer. If you like tan, try the sunkissed. She also has a number of darker skins, and one lighter (pale) then sunkissed. I would really love to see her expand her range from Pale to Sunkissed, I think she has the talent to be able to do it. I liked the fun makeup, and freckles on layer. Stop by and grab some demos, and don’t forget to grab her gift. ;D

Spring Rain

The weather has turned to spring in my area, and I am so over hearing about snow, and winter, even though I really don’t experience any of it. Yay, life in the tropics. Eclectic recently released this cute dress for spring, I love the color variations, there are a ton. This one is my favorite, it’s called Olive.  I accessorized with wood bangles, necklace, and jewelry, to match my rattan bag, and cocoa colored shoes.  A nice neutral approach if you are not sure what to mix in.  My fun umbrellas comes in a pack of poses from Attituede.  I love how wowsa my eye make-up turns when I throw on some lashes with this particular skin.

Corporate Chic – Whimsy Winx – Look #1

Common questions asked inworld are where to find buisness attire.   I have put together, a challenge to my fellow fashion community enthusiasts, to help create numerous looks appropriate for the office environment.  Both men and women can participate, please remember to not feature the following…suggestive clothing…this isn’t about an affair at the office, or your managerial wardrobe at Hot Topic, no wings, antlers, elves, sorry I love you all but lets keep this strictly business!  Scroll to the bottom of the post for more information!

My first look:
Corporate Chic - Whimsy Winx - Look # 1

I love this look, I could be the editor of a magazine, on my way to meet with the board, or lunch with the girls I do charity work with.  Old school, classic, chic.  Since it’s a virtual world…I can get away easily with the height of the heel.  This outfit is by Aoharu, it’s quintessential “twin set”.  Although the shift dress, and jacket are sold as separates.  This is a great way to get a look fast, and the dress easily coordinates with other jackets, and the look can be worn year round.  This look is also an example of a full “outfit” for the challenge,  as opposed to mix and matched separates.

Osakki Berries

Osakki - Berries, Inc

Sounds like an exotic fruit doesn’t it?  Osakki Berries.   I couldn’t resist, and now I’m hungry.  In November the skies become grey, the trees are bare, and I put this together in tribute.  Osakki was a cute store to find, I love this sculpted, sleeveless sweater with hood, and how nicely it goes with the Marla skirt from Berries, Inc.  The Marla skirt, is very well textured, and I love the click change color belt and belt loops.  The buttons are perfection.  I continued the texturing with the Typhoon Boots from Paper Couture, I love the lush suede.

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.
