Second Life –  Call for Couture starts October 10th!  Designers were asked to create a couture item for auction (50% of this auction final price will go to the charity), and a pret-a-porter (ready to wear) variation (not limited edition).   The designs are captivating!  The first design that caught my eye was created by SarahTheRed Aurbierre of Vanitas Vesture.  She’s a talented designer, who was also recently seen at the Wear Grey event.  Her couture item is definitely a hot ticket.  Her designs were inspired by tale of The Walrus and the Carpenter, which next to the Jabberwocky is my most favorite of Carroll’s writings.   Her couture gown is stunning!  A longer gown then her ready to wear version, its skirt is comprised of oysters.

The ready to wear is a knee length dress, with sexy cowl neckline, and backless.  Available in many colors, it was quite hard to choose which I wanted, and I may go back for the rest.  I loved each and every variation.  Shown here I have the Camel which I thought was amazingly chic, all in beige, that graduated to taupe at the skirt.  Featuring an oyster hat perched on my Camelia hair from Dernier Cri, accessorized with jewelry from Zaara, and this lovely skin from eStyle Exquisite, that I can’t wait to get a chance to do a skin blog post on.  My cute G Field Square-toe Shoes complete the look.

The Classic was fun little dress for a warm autumn day.  Starting with the cowl neck in squash that graduates to beige, then to a deep crimson at the skirt.   I played around with it and mixed  the cowl neck top with an apple green high waist skirt from Ingenue shown on the right. Complete with a makeup change but also from eStyle Exquisite, Nantucket Spectators shoes from Surf Couture in a complementary Pumpkin, as is the jewelry from fri.day. I completed the look with this cute hair from Frou-Frou, a nice formal updo that includes 3 styles of hair attachments all themed for fall.  They are a shiny metallic, one created from various hair textures in a variety of shades, and natural textures forming pumpkin, acorn and leaves, in a crown.

The cutest damn hair evah

Scribble @ Hair Fair 2010
Scribble @ Hair Fair 2010

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 DayCleaning 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.

Celestial Studios is another fashion house that’s been a mainstay for sometime.  The designer is immensely talented, and kept us skinned and clothed for quite some time.  Her designs have always been casual, stylish, and hip.  Her range of pants and jeans are some of my most favorite.  She was quite clever when she made them, doing accompanying belts of various styles to wear with, on the pant, and jackets layers.  I hearted her for this, along with her amazing sculpted pant prims.  Located with the jeans, are her corduroys, and suede pants.  The textures are some of the best you are going to find inworld.  If you stop by, check out her tees, hoodies, and handbags.

I’m wearing many brights for late summer, this fun one shoulder halter is from Sand Shack Surf Couture, featuring bright sculpted flower adornment on the shoulder strap.  The colors are rich, and the detail has depth, and excellent textured.  There is more added color with my Zaara painted bangles and earrings, and I picked up 3 of my favorite colors in this outfit for my shoes from Kalnins.  I love being able to do this with it’s color change hud.  It was a hard choice between a cherry patent leather purse from Celestial Studios, and denim one, while I was trying to decide, Sasy told me about these cute bags at Bare Rose, and the style was exactly what I wanted. A simple belt lightens the look up in the middle, I like the casual look of this belt from EarthStones, called Leather and Laced. It’s available in some neutral tones as well, I would have loved if this came in red or blue, or was mod so I could tint. My nails and rings are a combination set from Page 3.  Ring finish and polish colors are changeable by hud, available in a pack of sizes.  My skin choice is Tuli’s Jade line, I love the eyeshadow on this one, worn with Chaisuki’s lashes.  The hair is Ploom I recently blogged them, and can’t wait to show off all my Ploom purchases!  I love this hair!  This is Kemper in Fudge, nice, full, and flexi.
