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!

Bandana Day – Last Chance for Hair Fair 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!

Look of the day – Meshed up!

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

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 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.

Chic 2 – Take 2: coldLogic, Wasabi Pills, Glam Affair

Also at Chic 2 I got this super cute new mesh hair from Wasabi Pills. Anais 2 is a long mesh
style with braids. Rigged mesh to move with your body is probably the best thing to happen
to long hair in SL.  I picked up the reds pack and I’m wearing Gingerbread.

I also scooped up this cute strapless summer dress from coldLogic.  Moody is a strapless mesh
dress with a sweetheart neckline, wide waistband, and softly draping skirt. I chose it in
sageblossom which is a predominantly pink and green floral pattern.

My skin is once again Glam Affair Mia – a Chic 2 exclusive. Mia combines elements of 2 recent
popular Glam Affair skins, Leah and Giselle. Available in Natural tone and with  6 eyebrow options.
With a nice smokey eye makeup and soft neutral lips and blush, this is a great staple skin.
Add different lip or eye colours to vary your look.

Eclectic Apparel for Chic 2

The Chic Management Second Birthday Event opened yesterday.  Each designer created
one new item, available exclusively at the Chic2 event which runs June 3 – 24th.
Happy Birthday to Chic Management and congratulations to Keira Seerose. Keira has been
bringing some amazing events to the grid for the past 2 years. It’s a lot of work to make a
successful event and Keira has done it with professionalism and grace.

e! Eclectic Apparel’s item is the Cheer outfit. This mesh outfit includes a sports bra and
straight-leg track pants. Available in white and black, with your choice of 16 different accent
colours. Great for your cheerleading practice, yoga or other workout, rigged mesh moves with
your avatar’s body. Free demo available, and in standard sizing so there’s sure to be one that fits.

The skin I’m wearing is Glam Affair’s Mia, also at Chic2 exclusively. This skin is in a natural tone
and features a soft smokey eye and neutral lips. A great staple skin.

The pose is one of mine for Chic2. The Chic pose set is sold as a 10 pack or singly.
Look for Estetica’s cube at Chic2.

For this event the build is in a circle, each store has a little cube to display their product
and they have gone all out decorating them.  Because the event is so contained, it’s easy to
stay in one spot and cam around to see all the cubes. But it is still a busy event, so shop smart!
Take off those prims, AOs and other scripted items. Pare down to system clothes, no one can see
your finery and people will just get cross if you add to the lag.

Look of the day – Blue Skies

Nothing but blue skies today! It’s a gorgeous, sunny, day here. Of course, it’s always summer somewhere in Second Life, so you can wear this new flirty dress from e! Eclectic Apparel any day of the year. The Rachel mesh mini dress comes in a dazzling array of 18 colours, and each includes 2 options. The band below the bust comes in glitter (shown) or a subtle polka dot.  I added the League Daydream necklaces from Collabor88 since they fit my “blue skies” theme.

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
