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.

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.

Shag @ Hair Fair 2010

I was thrilled to see Shag at Hair Fair 2010.   Guys will love it as they made guy hair, which you can see blogged by Gasolinealex Serevi on YouStyleSL.   I’m doing three hair styles for girls, one being this great hat hair called These Things.  It features color-change hat, and band, and this cute low ponytail down the back.  Shag also made this thick braided pony called Let Me Kiss You with whisps escaping the braids.  It’s very casual, and very cute.  I love the hair they have set for charity called Breathe.  It’s a full big hair, a bit tousled.  It’s easily my favorite of their Hair Fair 2010 release, and I am in love with their chestnut shade now enough to wonder what color have I been wearing all this time from them.  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.

I chose Breathe with this dress I picked up from Gizza Creations.   This empire dress is full of color and movement, a bright happy dress to spend Labor Day in.  I’ve piled on the jewelry for a little tropical end of summer glitz, all of it from YS&YS, added more color with my makeup/skin from Chaisuki and grounded it with these summery Maitreya Gold  IXKin’s in cocoa.

While I was initially was going to just feature the hairstyles themselves, once I had put on Sasha, I knew exactly I had to blog this dress I had tucked away, it had been waiting for this hair.  I went for a soft look overall, sticking to Jaded Blond as a hair shade.  The Sasha has this lovely scarf/ribbon, which is color-changeable,  I went with chocolate and chose to use that tone to accessorize with.  It took 24 hours of seriously thinking about who and where this dress was.  I knew I wanted this dress but couldn’t recall who made it, and if I even owned it.  I began a long hunt trolling all the stores featuring sculpted clothing (really known for it), and saw this at Aoharu and remembered I bought them in packs during their big sale months ago.  When I first bought it I tucked it away until I found accessories for it, and finally now I have them.  I love the look of Sasha with it,  teamed up with a dream catcher bag also from Fri.day, and these awesome mary jane jumps from G. Field.  Thanks to Winter Jefferson, for remembering where I could find them.  I love the big thick strap on them, with the color changeable trim and buckle.  So retro, so now, and so chic.  I went with one simple set of bracelets from Zaara, in lieu of heavy amounts of jewelry I love to wear.  I would have loved to see this look with perhaps a ribbon choker, a broach, and charm bracelet.
