Sun, Shade, Sand, & Sweets.

Sun Shade Sand and Sweets Framed 1

Lot’s of event shopping is going on, lately it’s where the majority of my shopping takes place, not that it’s because of the event, but because of looking for new to me stores, and new releases in general.  Reign and 8f8 are ‘new to me’ stores I found at Kustom9 and The Seasons Story events. 8f8 has this cute gatcha out at The Seasons Story, it’s 88 Sweet Life Bakery at $50 per play, and the rare is this Sweet Life Bakery Tram, while the rest of the gatcha items are sweets, and baked goods, and related decor. I have my duplicates out for sale at LilBit’s Orphanage Yardsale, it’s the table with all the champagne on it, if you are looking for cakes etc. The Mochi Bears were too cute. The tran comes with 10 animations (6 singles, 4 couples), and on and off lights.  This pose, is not a part of the tran is from oOo Studio.

My hair is new from Ploom, called the Madison. It features an option bow with texture change hud featuring a wide variety of colors and prints. I’m wearing Izzie’s Maci skin and makeup appliers on my Emma mesh head from Slink, and a manicure/pedicure from Set 202 from Flair on my Slink mesh hands and feet.  My shoes are Chunky Plats, from Reign. I love this shade, they call it tan, I’ve been referring to it as buff since March cause I’m obsessed with this color at the moment. I like the little zipper on the back of the heel, and that it comes with a hud to toggle Silver and Gold Metals, and either a matching colored base, or a wood base. These shoes are super hot in the wood bases! Made to use with Slink’s Avatar Enhancement Mesh Feet – MID.

I’m wearing Katatonik’s Daffodil Dress in Light Green, which is currently available at The Seasons Story. It’s a cute paneled sundress, available in a number of colors, with either matching flower inset or coordinating. It’s mesh,and I am not sure if she’s using standard sizing and using her own terms for it, but it includes thin, average, curvy, and divine as sizes. I’m wearing the Average size from her store, where I usually wear a xs/s in standard sizing depending. I eyeball this size as a small/medium hybrid that borders on small it’s a bit more generous in the bodice while a modest waist, and a ok for curvey hips in the skirt.  My jewelry is mesh, and a cute little set from Izzie’s in creme. This set was originally released at The Liaison Collaborative’s The Boutique (Minimal Nouveau theme) in March, and is now available in her mainstore, and if you’re a member of the VIP group there is a cute gift of this is pink for members.

Hair Fair 2013 – Mina Hair

Hair Fair 2013 Mina Hair s

Mina released 4 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2013.  I’m wearing Mirjam from Hair Fair, a nice long smooth style.  I’ve styled the Mirjam with a new dress from Tabloid called Nantes.   The dress is currently available at The Boutique event. Nantes utilizes the new “Materials” of the latest Second Life viewer. This dress is comes with two styles, bow same color as dress, and bow in black.  The black and white version features bodice in black with bows in either colors. I’m wearing the safari shade which is this rich school bus yellow, with matching bow. It’s a great little dress, and would look great paired with a stylish skirt, or slacks. I’ve styled with some of my favorite accessories from Celoe, the Xylia Pumps in claret, the Clement Necklace in sonata, the Dara Bracelet in stigma, and Handverk’s Palette Purse in standard/gold. The purse is a cute clutch style, with aged brown leather back,  love the texture, and the attention to detail.  My skin is Izzie’s Jill in sunkissed, with brown eyeshadow, and dark red lipstick layers.  I’ve used Izzie’s skin appliers n my SLink Avatar Enhancement Hands, and manicure from Flair, Set 100 – partuy.

Mina’s three other Hair Fair 2013 hairstyles are Ineke, which is a long hair style with beaded headpiece.  Ineke comes with a hud to change the beads colors in preselected sets, and an “alpha” option that removes them. Laura is a lovely tiered mesh updo covered in wisps. The Petra is a long hair style, with some tresses up front, and to the back.
