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 Day. Cleaning Day features this adorable kerchief, the pattern of the fabric is this lovely dark red with paisleys. It’s just what I always wanted.
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.

One day while window shopping at Kari, I poked around the Tully sim and found Gypsy Soul. At first I admired the building as it was a style I liked, and I was taking forever that day to rez things, and boy was I glad when it did. I about died, and cursed my shopping budget immediately but still bought the Whimsy stockings pack (like duh!), and I grabbed the Autumn outfit. This is such a cute outfit, very now, yet so in vogue as a style in the mid to late 1990’s. I know cause my closet is still full of RL counterparts from that era. My first thought about blogging I nixed as it’s Spring and there are so many fun spring styles out there, but lets face it. It can be any season I need it to be in-world as fast as I can rez a seasonal tree, and it’s Autumn Down Under and I need to get over it.
This lovely outfit comes with items on a variety of layers, thank you Solitude Hermit! The like the grey sweater with shadows and highlights, and a navy tank to layer under, or wear alone. The prim min-skirt is a cute little plaid skirt with a tiered overlay skirt, its a fun little skirt and suits the look perfectly. I noticed that on my copy the centering skirt prim, which is usually of of no consequence as it hides in your body was made of a lightly tinted prim wood. Usually designs make this clear, but as the skirt was mod, I was able to take care of that on my own, no biggie. Autumn comes with matching striped stockings, I had thought of wearing one of the Whimsy stockings but decided to stick to the whole outfit.
Any style of ankle boot would have suited this look but I love how the Black Ankle Boots from Lassitude & Ennui lend a little funkiness to this outfit. Another find was this cute art tote bag from Atomic. Stuffed with all your art supplies you are set for class, or a ready to find a quiet spot to sketch. I really enjoyed the attention to detail on this tote, from the brushes to the paints, to the sketchpad, and hints of dried on old paint on the texture. I thought since there were so many muted shades of blues, greys, blacks, and reds, I could get away with the navy-ish Black Chakra Boho Beads jewelry set from luc. These I consider a staple in my jewelry chest, the funky set gets a lot of wear, they are available in 8 colors. Once again, so I get to my plein air class on time, I have my Classic Tank Watch in black, from Muse. Love it. My fun little Danielle Black Sunglasses (lightly tinted sunglasses) from Insolence. These are fun little glasses to own, they are all about the business. I topped it all off with my Willow hair from Truth, in pumpkin with carrot streaks, and no bow. Truth did a new release today called the Willow 2, similar you can check out the pics here. And last but not least, my hipster belt in night from Truth, which I though suited the skirt perfectly.
