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 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. Hair Fair 2010 is ongoing through September 19th. To see what stores or get slurls to it , click here.

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.
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.

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 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.

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. JewelryClothing
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. Hair Fair 2010 is ongoing through September 19th.

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.
