Hair Fair 2014

I finally made it to Hair Fair! I actually went just a day or two after it opened and only had to try to tp about 3 times before actually making it there. Maybe my memory is failing me, but it seems like in past years it took a lot longer. I also rezzed one of temp editable boxes to move around on because in the past it was the ONLY way you could move as walking got you nowhere and I really did not need it. I was able to walk just fine with out lag. It was a totally weird feeling for Hair Fair.

The two LeLutka hairs I have on are called Christine and Francine and I thought they were gorgeous! I can’t wait to wear the up do Francine to some formal event with it’s crystal encrusted flower hair accessory. I am sure it will set off any gown I have perfectly.
Christine’s fig leaf head band I think has a more versatile style and could be dressed up or dressed down with some jeans. I look forward to find all the different outfits I can pair it with.
As usual though I with Lelutka offered all her hairs in an unnatural color pack as well. I would have loved dearly loved these in a pale pink or purple.

Unnatural hair colors is not a problem for my Ohmai hairs! I am wearing Callia and Newreem and I love them! Yes they come in pretty pastel pinks and other colors, but they also each have a version of hair with adorable birds! That’s a running theme with all of Ohmai’s hair this fair. The hairs are lovely and they are going to make for some outfits in the near future.

Lamb had some great hairs at this year’s fair. A couple of them are convertible hair styles like the one I am wearing in the top picture. Eccentric is cute pretty much in half (a little over from half) and you can either wear the main side swoopy part and have the other half shaved for when you are feeling really bold, or add on the extra hair piece that will finish off the hair on the short side. I am wearing both hair pieces in this picture, but I will definitely take advantage of the different options at times. The other convertible hair offered was longer, but I thought the short hair was fun.
Halo is the other Lamb hair I got and it is very reminisent of a hair she made a few years ago, but I liked that! The older hair was in sculpts and while still pretty I simply do not wear any long styles that are not mesh any more. I am dying for some other older sculpted hairs to be given new life in mesh as well. (Like Mono, Poppyseed, Sweetpea, and Lovelier Girl just to name a few *cough* in case you know someone is reading.)

I also picked up the Cherry Bomb hair from Clawtooth. I thought it looked fun and flirty with its short half curls and waves. It seems like a great summer hair.

And the my last Hair Fair purchase was D522 from Tram. I love a well done long hair and have a hard time passing them up. I loved the two little side twisted braids. Tram is another store I really really wish did unnatural colors. There can never be enough pink hairs!

That’s it, my picks for Hair Fair 2014, but there are a ton of other great hairs there. I bought a lot less than I did last year or the year before because I had less money to spend and I took a good long look at what I had bought in the past and realized I hardly wore any of the hairs even though I really loved them. I just get caught up in the whole “OMG! It’s Hair Fair buy all the hairs!” and buy a bunch and then forget I got them. This year I tried to only get ones I could see my wearing right away or often and if down the road there are others that I like and still want I can just go to the main stores and get them after the hair. No need to over load right now.

Feeling Vargas

Pin-up
I meant to blog this outfit for 4th of July, but RL work kind of got crazy and sucked away all my free time. But that’s okay, had I done the post then I would not have had time to wipe out this very Vargas-esque pose.
My adorable sailor outfit is from The Secret Store. It came in all kind of colors including pastels and while I was very tempted to get pink, the red blue just felt right to me. Ingenue has the perfect shoes to pair with the outfit complete with little anchor buttons on the back strap. The whole outfit just screamed classic pin-up to me so where better to go for pose inspiration than the work of Alberto Vargas.

Wall Flower


Still in a vintage mood, and luckily creators lately seem to be putting out quite a bit of retro inspired clothing items so it works out great for me!
I got my skirt May C88 from Tres Blah and it is so cute! It even has like a little petticoat under it for added fullness. It was hard to decide when pattern to get, I wanted them all!
My top is an adorable off the shoulder cropped top from Tee*fy at June C88. I got it in yellow and then had to go back to get it in a few other colors and I think I might go get a few more before C88 switches over too.
I had had on white shoes when first put the outfit together, but I felt I needed a bit more color. What luck I found they cute wedge sandals from Fri.day at Summerfest in the perfect shade of red! I just love their look, I might end up getting them in another color or two as well before the even is up.

Summer Sherbert


I like pastels and wear them often no matter when, but something about Spring and Summer really makes me want to dress in pastels and bright colors all the time. Something also make me slap on as many different colors as I can in Summer too. As long as they are all pastels they all go together, right?

These were some of my favorite items I picked up last round of C88, but never blogged because I have been going crazy looking for the right place to take a picture. Nothing was calling to me. I wanted a retro feel and the search made me realize SL is REALLY lacking in retro inspired sims. I ended up just taking the picture in a vintage camper I got some Arcade ago.
I love love love this top from Tres Blah, so much I did get it in another color as well. It’s so cute with it’s little bow and polka dots. Though I do hope Tres Blah will maybe sometime make a non dotted version.
The high waisted jeans in pink from Tee*fy seemed the obvious bottom for my teal top. But when it came to finding shoes for my outfit I had some set backs. I know these shoes look perfect and match almost exactly, but they were not my first choice. Not because they are not cute shoes because they are totally adorable. But they are for the high slink foot. I did not have that foot and kinda thought it looked odd and painful. I went everywhere trying to find a similar feel in a shoe made for the mid foot, but had no luck. I gave in and bought the high foot so I could wear these shoes from Fri.day (also from last C88). I still think the high foot looks odd and painful, but it’s not so bad if there is a back strap around the heel at least in my eye.

Turtle Beach


There were so many things I wanted to blog from last month’s Collaber88 and I just did not get to them in time!. I put together a bunch of outfits, but then could not find places I to take pictures that completed the vision I had in my head. And then I got a new job in RL! That’s been taking a lot of my plus my scheduling is just all over the place.

I guess procrastinating worked out for this outfit! I found the hair at the June Collaber88 and my little turtle from is from June Arcade (which is almost over!) I also got my adorable froggy flip flops at the Arcade from Erratic. They are so cute they make me wish I could wear flip flops in RL and had a pair just like them.

Bon Appetit


I’m a sucker for a retro inspired dress, so it was a no brainer when I saw The Secret Store Dress at this month’s Collaber88. It made me feel so pretty and girly and like I wanted to strap on an apron and bake a cake… very Donna Reed.
I finished off the look with these cute Sophia heels from Ingenue and swept up half do from Lamb, both also at this month’s Collaber88.

Fox Friend


I just can’t seem to resist these adorable animal friends Birdy/Alchemy keep putting out! They make such a great team, can’t wait to see what is next.

There were lots of great things at this month’s Collaber88, I hope everyone got a chance to check it out.
This dress from U.F.O is one of my favorite from this round (one of.. there were many). It was so hard to choose a which sweater color to get so I ended up getting this lovely minty color. I think I might get another in yellow or grey, I have not decided yet. I wish there had been a fat pack HUD for the sweater. I simply could not at all choose which HUD pattern pack to get for the dress itself so I just got the fat pack of them all.
