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

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: Vintage Polkadot

What with one thing and another, it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. I didn’t realize how long until I opened WordPress to do this post. Life is good, but super busy.

For the last week I’ve been standing on my front porch in this outfit and I finally took pictures!

I’m wearing some of the latest mesh from e! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories. The Marion pencil skirt and Lola tube top came out last weekend. They are great pieces to mix and match, and when you put them together like this they make a sleek strapless dress.

Find them at the e! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories Mainstore or at Culture Shock where there is an exclusive colour of the Marion Mesh pencil skirt to benefit Médecins Sans Frontières.

Both pieces can be worn with other e! mesh pieces as well as other items from your wardrobe. It’s fun to mix it up and create new looks with older and new items.

I went for a bit of a vintage look with this Louise Brooks hair from Clawtooth by Clawtooth, and something about the polka dots and the slinky figure hugging look was just perfect with pearls and retro sunglasses from Donna Flora. I finished the look with this cute satin box clutch from Coco and the Alex t-strap heels from G. Field.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend and I’m happy to be back blogging. ♥ Ana

Clawtooth at Hair Fair is Fabulous, Darling!

Bubbles Clawtooth of Clawtooth by Clawtooth has 4 fabulous long hairstyles at Hair Fair 2011!

Darling and Dream Weaver both feature a slightly longer fall on the left hand side, Darling has side-swept bangs, while Dream Weaver is parted on the right with no bangs at all.

Pretty Words is an ultra-long style, with side-swept bangs like Darling, and a second attachment point for the extra long piece. Take it Easy is likewise an ultra long version of Dream Weaver and also makes use of a second attachment point to add the extra length.

I love the soft wisps and casual feel of these styles, which are suitable for both contemporary and retro styling.  Try a free demo to see which style needs to go home with you!
Don’t forget that all Hair Fair 2011 hair styles benefit Wigs for Kids, so you can do good and look fabulous, just like Bubbles!

Wind in my hair

I just love, love ♥ these two new hairstyles from Clawtooth by Clawtooth. Blown Away and
Easy Breezy are two long windblown styles with slightly different bangs but the same feeling of
movement. I headed out to AM Radio’s installation “The Ferry” for a setting that reflected the
feeling I get from these hairstyles. Many times I’ve stood on the deck of a ferry boat with the wind whipping my hair.

I will admit that I’ve never ridden the ferry dressed as beautifully as this. These two beautiful
dresses from Icing have been waiting in my inventory for some time. Lorelei is a sophisticated
cocktail dress with a lingerie style bodice and pencil skirt. Gala Affair is a gorgeous gown with a
wrapped one shouldered bodice and split skirt with an optional train.  Both evoke the elegance of a byegone era and yet would be perfectly suited to any event today.

Hair Fair 2010 – Clawtooth by Clawtooth – Post 5

The lovely and fabulous Bubbles Clawtooth of Clawtooth by Clawtooth has done it again! Five brand new hairstyles available at Hair Fair right now! There’s a style here for any occasion, as always with a vintage feel that still works well with anything in your wardrobe.

From the top left,  My Shilova is a cute short style, with side swept bangs pinned back.  Rockin Rolls features divine Victory rolls and falls smoothly over the shoulders.  I featured You’re a Star in one of my previous hair fair posts, this one channels the fabulous divas of the silver screen like Veronica Lake. So glamourous. French Connection just may be my favourite of the five, with a simple colour change beret, side swept bangs and just the right length. I’m ready to go sit in a Parisian café with my sketchbook! Last but not least, Turnip Sorbet is a mid-length hairstyle with soft waves and blunt bangs.

Argyle Suspender Socks! New from Pig

Apatia Hammerer has long been known for her original hand drawn clothing, at her two stores Pig and Thimbles.  Unless you haven’t been paying attention to Second Life fashion blogs at all over the past year, you will have see her suspender socks many times!  As an ardent lover of argyle, I was so excited when I heard Apatia was working on argyle socks. They are out now in store, in an astonishing 30 colour combinations!

Apatia was kind enough to drop them on me, and once I was finished squeeing in glee, I started making outfits based on them.  With so many choices of colours it was hard to narrow it down to just 3 to build outfits around for this post.

On the left I started with the Pig Argyle socks in Bertram, pairing them with this Pig Sing Sing cardigan in raspberry, and the Bobo Party Sweater skirt from Thimbles in white.
The Clawtooth by Clawtooth hairstyle Woman of the Year in Delicious Wine was one of two for this week’s 50L Friday. The Vaudevillian shoes from Anexx and the Celeste glasses from PrimOptic finished of the look.

In the centre I went with the socks in Eloise, and chose the Long Island cardigan in deep teal, also from Pig. I tried on a bunch of shorter skirts, but settled on this grey pleated skirt from Niniko, with a fri.day Cami tucked under the cardi. I bought Those Shoes from Smersh a few weeks back after seeing them in one of Apatia’s ads. Lamb’s Stargaze  hair in Kitkat with bowler hat topped the outfit.

On the right I started again with the socks in Zigfield, and picked out this Blackbeautyberry mini dress at Thimbles to go with them. Clawtooth by Clawtooth had this hair with hat out for Stumblebum some months back, called Love Cuddles, I’m wearing it in Classic Brunette. The Classy Lady pearls in Ebony from Ticky Tacky, and the new Zimmy flats from Shiny Things to accessorize, and this very simple outfit was done.
