LOTD – Tell me how does it feel?

November 21, 2012

I was going to call this look “Blue Monday” because I started putting it together on Monday.
But what with one thing and another it’s Wednesday now that I have it all done! So instead I
went with a lyric from the song.

Hope your Wednesday is not so blue!

♥ Ana

Look of the day – Happy Autumn

November 14, 2012

 

*waves frantically* Hey it’s been ages since I had time on SL – RL is all consuming at the moment.
In a good way,  though. I finally got some time and energy to log on and of course did a bit of
shopping!

My look of the day began with the idea of putting together a new fall outfit. I started off at
ColdLogic where I picked up this “farrell” top in coal. This is a layered shirt and sweater style,
which I love for these cooler fall days. I teamed it with the “giles” skirt in stone and these
great cable knit tights from Jane.

I accessorized with older items from my inventory, my favourite Curvacious boots from Gos,
a bag from The Secret Store, jewellery from Maxi Gossamer, and sunglasses from Mon Tissu.
The phone pose prop set is from my store Estetica.

We’ve had  a lot of grey days here lately, but today is sunny and clear. Happy autumn, everyone!

Bandana Day – Last Chance for Hair Fair 2012

July 29, 2012

 

Today is Bandana Day and the last day of  Hair Fair 2012. Wear your bandana today to show you care!
All bandanas are just 50L and benefit Wigs for Kids. I’m wearing LeLutka’s Faith Scarf bandana.
This tie dyed head scarf is in shades of plum and can be worn with or without the part that drapes
over the shoulder.

It’s your last chance today to get out and buy some hair or a bandana to benefit Wigs for Kids,
so if you haven’t been to Hair Fair 2012 go now before it’s too late!

Hair Fair 2012 Ends Tomorrow – Last chance to donate to Wigs for Kids

July 28, 2012

Hair Fair 2012 ends tomorrow, so your time is running out to grab some amazing new hair styles
and contribute to a great cause. As always, Hair Fair benefits Wigs for Kids, which provides wigs
to children who have lost their hair due to medical issues such as chemotherapy,  alopecia,
and burns. This year, every hair purchased donates a percentage, so shop til you drop, it’s all
for the kids!

I snuck in briefly at the beginning of hair fair and only got back today to scoop up some more
great hair.  (I’ve had a terrible virus which turned into bronchitis and between that and 2 kids
home for summer I really haven’t been on SL for more than a few minutes each day)

Elikatira has several great new mesh styles at the fair, I had to have Flattery because this is
as close to my RL hairstyle as I’ve seen in SL, although it’s much better hair than mine.

I also picked up Nostalgic from Illusory for when I’m feeling youthful and remembering the 80s!
Wasabi Pills is also making some great mesh hair, I got Brigitte in the blonds pack and Zoey in reds.

Clawtooth by Clawtooth has 4 new mesh styles at the fair, my favourites are Serendipity and
Starlight, 2 great long styles.  Rigged mesh is amazing for long hair, doing away with all the
frustrations of hair going through your avatar as you move.

My favourites from Lelutka are these 2 shown, Vesage is a long style with centre part fringe
and softly curling ends, Magdalen can be worn 3 ways. Wear the full updo alone, with the
ponytail, or wear a matching hairbase and the ponytail for a sleek look.

I’m sure all these styles will be in stores after the fair ends, but today is your last chance for your
purchases to help a great charity.  Buy some hair or some of the many custom bandanas created
exclusively for hair fair, and help some sick children!

Find the full list of stores and SLURLS on the official Hair Fair 2012 Blog.

 

Look of the day – Meshed up!

June 8, 2012

Today’s look started with some new things from Ingenue, Whippet & Buck, and Fri.day.

The Soft.Cami is Fri.day’s first mesh release! This cropped mesh cami has spaghetti straps,
a deep back and a softly flowy feel. I’m wearing it in Lime which is one of 4 Stumblebum
colours.  The full line of 12 colours has also been released. The regular colours are
more pastel shades, while the Stumblebum colours are all brights.

My skirt is also mesh, and is Whippet & Buck’s item for this round of Collabor88.
Available in 8 colours, this highwaisted herringbone tweed wrap skirt has great
button details and deep pockets.

The Jive mesh shoes from Ingenue are also at Collabor88.  These two-tone suede
wedges have high cork heels and subtle stitching details. Love!  The one area
where we definitely need more mesh items is footwear!   Choose from 5
colours. Shown in fawn.

Look of the day: Summer of Love

June 6, 2012

Like so many others, I headed over to Maitreya yesterday to check out their first summer release
of the year. I was unable to resist their new mesh jeans. These come in 8 colours and the fatpack
is a great value but I was good and just chose one colour for now.

I also grabbed their new Cupio mesh halter top in Cloudy. This top is a mesh tube top with a
relaxed fit and a beaded halter tie.  I got white but I may be back when I can pick another colour.
This top is very cute and I like the peek of tummy without it being a really short cropped top.

Of course I couldn’t leave without Maitreya’s first mesh hair! Siobhan is a long hair style with a
lovely big floppy hat. My only criticism would be that for me, I’d like some lighter colour hat
options for summer. They are all pretty dark except for one yellowish straw.  I think these will
also look amazing come fall though so there’s a lot of wearability. Of course in SL your head
doesn’t get hot so you can wear a black hat with impunity!

I finished this summer day look with the N-Core Etoile wedge sandals in black and some great
accessories that I had in my inventory. Mandala’s Takara bangles, the Secret Store’s Funky Tango
Bag and Coco gift belt which is no longer available. I’ve had it since January 2009 and worn it a lot!

I feel like Ana needs to jump in her VW Van and head down to Venice Beach or the Haight-Ashbury.

Fameshed – e! Eclectic Apparel, Pink Outfitters, Wasabi Pills

June 4, 2012

June is the second month of FaMESHed. This event brings together creators of original mesh
items with new releases each month. I’m wearing 3 items from this round.

My hair is from Wasabi Pills. Claire is an elegant short hair style, with a side part softly
sweeping across the left eye. I went for the blondes pack for a change! Here I’m wearing Rye
which is a very light blonde.

The Violet Lace tank is from Pink Outfitters’ and comes in 8 colours. With a contrasting bow detail
on the front and a lace racer back, this loose-fitting mesh tank would work equally well with a skirt,
jeans, or shorts as I have done here.

e! Eclectic Apparel has released 15 colours of the new Millie shorts at Fameshed. These pinstriped
Bermuda shorts are great to mix and match for summer looks. Whether it’s a casual beach look,
or dressed up with a blazer and heels, the Millie shorts are a great wardrobe staple.
