LOTD – Tell me how does it feel?

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

 

*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!

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 – beachy and breezy

Today’s look is inspired by my new land! I have a home again at last, on protected mainland water. So I was feeling fresh and beachy and I put together this look starting with the Breezy mesh shirt from E! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories. This short-sleeved open cotton shirt is great for layering and can be worn super casual as I have here, or with a nice wide trouser, pencil skirt or dress, for a business casual look.

The Breezy shirt is available at E! Eclectic Apparel & Accessories mainstore or at March Mesh Madness. Try a free demo, all mesh clothing from E! comes in 5 standard sizes.

As obsessed with mesh as I am, it’s great to combine new things with old favourites from your inventory. I chose the cafe shorts from Surf Couture since the colour looked good with the shirt, at least with my lighting. These Tennessee slip-ons from Reek are great colour-change flat espadrilles, ideal for a day at the shore. I’ve had these Gos sunglasses for 2 years but I wear them again and again. Love the colour / texture changing options that Gos products provide.

Look of the day: Shop til you… crash?

Today’s look also includes lots of the new mesh items I splurged on to treat myself. I do love these Radical Boots from Maitreya. The first boots I ever bought in SL were Maitreya’s “Dune” boots in black. These new boots are like an updated version of those and I think are destined to be a new wardrobe staple as the others were back in 2007/08.

Maitreya’s leather satchel is a nice big slouchy bag that matches perfectly with my new boots. I’d love a RL version of this to hold all my junk!

I picked up this tunic dress from Jane and then spent way too long looking for pants or leggings to wear under it. I settled on these cords from Doppelganger which I’ve had for ages. It’s a relaxed, comfortable look. Perfect for a day of shopping or for teleporting around SL looking for nice spots to take pics… ahem.

Elikatira – 3 new styles at Hair Fair 2011

Elika Tiramisu is one of the best-known hair designers in Second Life, and no matter what she calls her brand, her hair never fails to satisfy. For the 2011 Hair Fair Elika has 3 new styles, and I scooped them all, in the Essentials pack which is my favourite.

Story is a side pony with a colour change tie and a side part. I prefer my hair parted on the side with side swept bangs so I was thrilled with this whole release! With is a casual bun with a colour change hairband and side-swept bangs, and Pretend is a smoothly rounded bob again with side-swept bangs.
(Pretend is kind of like my rl hair on a good day!)

If you head on over and scoop these up at Hair Fair, a percentage of each purchase will benefit Wigs for Kids, which is an amazing charity providing wigs for children who have lost their hair because of cancer treatments.
