Mon Tissu

mon tissu just released this lovely sculpted sweater called Softest Cinch Cardigan.  It features a prim lapel, and sculpted prim skirt lower half.  I love the look of the pockets, and the belt tied in the back is to die for.  I paired the cardigan with their pleated skirt in black.  They’ve included the lower skirt of the cardigan on pelvis and stomach attachments so you can layer your look with other items quickly. The cardigan comes brown, grey, lavender, moss, mustard, red, rose, and black.  Some of my favorite shoes of late are these from LeLutka.  I love the shape of the heel, I can’t get enough of this shape paired with stockings and leggings of all sorts, shown here are these fantastically seamed No. 9 panty hose.  Under my cardigan I have on Royal Blue’s hot body suit with paint splatter in contrasting colors, she has a whole bunch of these in fun colors, come get your 80’s on.

Cocktail Hour

Miel @ Hair Fair 2010
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).

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.

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.  To get some tips on managing your settings for attendance at Second Life events like Hair Fair click here.
