Fall Silk


There are a lot of great things at the Season Story, this top from Tram is one I could not live with out. I loved how flowy and silky it looked. I am wearing it with the add on collar which adds a great automatic layer effect. There are also lots of options of the add on collar so many uses for the top.
I paired it with some simple trousers and a high boot for more of a fall look.
My pose is from Ploom and I will be honest I have never bought a pose from there before. I needed something new and knew they had poses because I always see them when the note card goes out for new hairs. I decided to see what they had to offer and I was very pleasantly surprised. I a kinda on the broke side at the moment and was just looking for a single pose (as that was all I could afford), but I will definitely be going back to Ploom for more poses. A really nice bonus for buying poses in packs from Ploom is they offer a curvy version of each pose in the pack. I think this is awesome because some times my hips seem a bit wider than the average for poses. Also curvy sized poses are great with some poofy clothes. If you just need single poses they do also offer the curvy ones for single purchase too.

Food Fair 2013


YAY! I made it to Food Fair and there are tons of cute things there.
One of my favorite things was this adorable donut headband. It’s in a gatcha machine from Sugar. I just want to take another giant bite out of each ear.
I also picked up my cotton candy which came with poses at Food Fair. It has about a couple poses with the prop and they are all really cute.

Also from Food Fair is this lovely skin from La Petite Morte. The one I am wearing is called Raspberry Tart. I love how delicate it looks and its smattering of Strawberry Shortcake freckles.

Hair Fair 2013

It’s that time of year again… HAIR FAIR!!! *runs around with crazy flailing arms* Out of all the fair type events, like skin fair, pose fair, etc…, Hair Fair is my most favorite. One can never have too much hair, right? It’s so easy in SL to change your hair from short to long and back again. Dye it crazy colors or bring it back to a natural color. I have to have lots of variety in my hairs to fit every mood and whim I may have.

With so many great hair creators these days I find it really hard to limit myself. I went way overboard last year buying nearly 40 hairs! Looking back at my old post I realized that so many of them I forgot I had and never wore again. So when it came to hair fair this time I gave myself a stern talking to about really thinking over what hairs I would buy. I still went a little overboard, but really who could blame me with all the awesome hair out there this year?! The total number of hairs I got this is is just under half of what I got last year so i will count that as goal accomplished in not going totally overboard.
You might want to sit back, this is going to be kind of a long post.


Last year Laviere was a new to me hair store, but over the last year they have been working their way to being one of my favorite stores. When I finally got into the fair, which surprisingly didn’t take that long, just a few minutes of constant tp attempts, Laviere was one of the first stores I hit up. As I said before I was really trying to limit myself on what to buy and these two hairs were the ones I felt I could not live with out. It was more difficult to choose which color pack to buy them in actually. Lately I have only been getting fades, I just love that look and Laviere has a great pack with fades, but their textures are so beautifully made that even in the solid colors there is a nice variation to keep the hair from looking flat. I ended up just getting the pastel color pack because the colors are really pretty an it’s the perfect pink!
I simply loved this little curly hair from Tram! I only wish Tram did more non natural colors, but there was this dark salmon-y color that can pass ff as pink so it worked out.


Lamb has some really cute hairs out this year. One of my absolute favorites is True Faith. There is also a similar hair called Blue Monday out and it’s basically the same except it has rolled under and very retro looking bangs. I loved it too and I wear retro styled things a lot, but I had to look long and hard at both hairs and choose which I thought I would get more use out of. Remember trying to stick to a goal of not going too crazy here. As much as I loved the rolled under bangs the more swept to the side fringe won out.
The other hair I got from Lamb is Thieves Like Us. I love that the braids are not super thick. So many braid hairs in SL seem so huge and thick to me. Now I have a lot of hair in RL and the curls ad a lot of volume and thickness to it, but when I braid my hair it is smaller and not all huge like braids tend to be in SL.
Fashionable Dead has some really cute hairs out this year, but by the time I got there I was running low on funds and could only get one. It was hard to choose as this year all (fd) hairs come packaged with two versions… TWO! In the end I got Mercury. I really liked the little floral knotted headband and think I’ll wear it more than the others.


There are a lot of hairs this year with really cute accessories. Ohmai is one of the shops with some of those hairs. I got Athena and Kun. As soon as I put Kun on it reminded me of Melora from Rasputina and could already picture some photo ops and outfits to wear it with.
Some lovely hairs from Clawtooth this yeah, I couldn’t live with out Tootsie. The best thing I think is he’s made a color pack with some of the colors he had int he last arcade round. This pink is my favorite by far.


ISON hair is new to me. Maybe it’s it is new in general, I donno I forget to check back at stores often to see what new things they are up to, but I just remember the clothes. I really liked these two hair styles and they have some nice colors and fades. When you buy the hair you get it with basic colors, and then you have the option to buy other packs on huds. Buying the hair plus the color pack was about 300L, which is nice because for the price of most hairs you get essential natural colors, plus another pack of colors of your choosing. It works out great for me because if I like a hair a lot I will buy it in a basic brown or blonde pack PLUS what ever pack gives me a nice pink or dip dye colors and i was able to do just that for only the price of basically one hair.
LeLutka is another shop this year with pretty accessories for their hair. And I am so happy now that more and more LeLutka hair is being offered in non natural colors!


I was pleasantly surprised by Ploom this year. They usually always have nice hair, just not always in my style. There were two that I just had to have this year. Cassie is so cute with the looped pigtails I could not resist and I really like Ploom’s dip dye pack called Candy.
The other hair I got is Raichu, it’s kinda cute and sassy ponytails done in bunches. There are some really nice details in this hair. Like up front where the hair is in the first band how it is a little poofy, but you can see where the rubber band weighs it down a bit. And the way the swoopy bangs separate from that top poofy part just look brilliant to me. I don’t want to be rude or anything like that, but I really feel like I can see some growth in technique with these latest hairs from Ploom at the fair.
And last, but not least the hairs I picked up at Eaters Coma. This was another shop that made it hard to limit myself. Hair 27 is kinda similar in style to one I got at ISON, but I justified the purchase by reasoning I’d wear the ISON on more in the pinks and as Eaters Coma doesn’t offer funky colors then I would wear it in natural brown. See, perfect reason to get two similar styles!

So those were my picks from this year’s fair. If you haven’t been yet you really should. It didn’t take long to actually get there at all and I made 3 trips and was amazed each time how quickly I got in. Previous years it would literally take me days to get a TP to actually go, but not this year. Also this year’s build is so awesome and cute! If you are having a hard time getting around I suggest finding one of the “bus” dispensers. They really are a life saver for getting around the fair.

Casual Love


Today’s outfit reminded me how happy I am to have mesh on the grid! I love over-sized tops and while there were some nice ones made in sculpties a while back, they always had only little part that wouldn’t connect right or move with the body perfectly. With mesh the problems are solved and now we can get great looking and fitting over-sized tops in SL!
I was also very happy to see the bermuda jean shorts from Tres Blah at last month’s C88. I have been craving some mesh shorts in this style for ages now so I could upgrade my system layer ones from years ago. The system layer ones are still great and I might break them out every now and then, but I much rather mesh when I can have it.

Hair Fair 2012 Part Two

Back with some more of my many purchases from this year’s hair fair.


Epoque was a new to me brand and i think I am in love now! Well, it was not too hard for them to get my attention. First hair right in the door was Stablizer, a cute little top bun with bangs and they have a lovely pink hair texture. So really love at first sight. I think my love of buns stems from doing years of ballet as a little girl.
Fighter is also at top bun with long swoopy come over bangs type hair I couldn’t pass up. Epoque has a nice selection of non natural and fun dyed hairs so if you are like me and need variety from the usual it’s perfect!


Decoy has a nice selection of hairs out at the fair this year. Oh look another bun hair..lol
On the left is Bethani. Such a cute hair with the long-ish loose fringe in front and other little loose hairs. Give the whole style a fun and carefree feeling.
Ren, top right, is a nice little side ponytail. It may look a little simple, but looking closer you see the small details that I have come to associate with the Decoy brand. The hairs don’t just simply pull to the side, but there are strands twisted under other ones and it really give the feel of quickly running your fingers through your hair and pulling it to the side. I always like when there are hairs out of order in SL hair… makes it feel more natural.
Bottom right is Aella, which I think is a must have. Just a nice hair to have that can be made to work with many different outfits and situations.


I had no idea that LaViere made hairs! I’m glad I stopped by their stall… such cute styles and lots of fun colors!
Top left is Valere, a very cute short style.
Ambush is on the bottom left. I will be honest with you when I first put on this hair all I could see was the standard Romulan female hair style… haha been watching too much Next Generation I think. But the more I looked at it the style really grew on me and I find it totally adorable!
Freya, on the right, is one of the cutest high side pony tails I have seen! I could not resist it. (Resistance is futile…lol I amuse myself.)
I bought all my Laviere hairs in the color pack so many fun options there!


On the left I have on Mica from Slink. I had no clue they made hair.. looks like I need to get out more often.
To the right is Ging from Analog Dog, which is the first hair from there I have ever liked. The hairs there are great and cute, but I am not a huge fan of hairs made with so much flexi and alpha textures. Ging comes with an optional felxi add on, but I prefer it with out. i think the texturing of the flexi parts and how they stick out from the hair really detract from it.


Wasabi Pills has a really cute and fun hair out called Zoey (left). I have lately been dressing in a bit of a bohemian style and this hair will fit in just perfectly. The beads and the cord both change color by HUD.
Mons is another brand that I had no idea they made hair. I fell in love with Sweet Dreams, a fun and little bit funky bun style. I would have preferred it in pink, but sadly Mons does not offer non natural colors. The brown is still nice though and there is a cute bow!
