Down to Earth

Snapshot_024

Today’s look was inspired by this absolutely darling hairstyle, Lopsided Lily, by (fashionably dead). Toast has just struck gold with this style, with me at the very least. The style is pulled back into messy pig-tails; one much shorter than the other. The fact that this style speaks to me so deeply is actually due to a dark hilarious story from my real life that resulted me pulling my long hair over my shoulder into a pony tail and cutting it off – resulting a style almost EXACTLY like the one presented here in lopsided Lily. I’ve left it, actually, and shaped it out to be a real fun asymmetrical style… but when I do pigtails…they do this:

LOL! Moving right along, then. Accessories in this picture are EarthStones Triple Hippie Bracelet – Earth Spice & EarthStones Hemp Hair Beads – Headwrap – Dusk. I’ve always been a huge fan of Earthstones’ work and these two pieces are no exception. The attention to detail is exquisite:

Snapshot_025For real…. I want this bracelet on my wrist. Today. As I type this. Last but not least I want to touch on, for those of you following SL Fashion Week: you may or may not have noticed the earrings I’m wearing in this picture. No? Okay, here’s a closer look:

Introducing VirtualMe SL & Danni Darbyshire

Introducing Danni Darbyshire

I must admit I’m so thrilled to be making my first post to VirtualMe SL. This blog is the culmination of months and years of shopping fanaticism. My friend, kado, finally lit the fire under my ass to get this thing going. My goal with VirtualMe SL is to introduce my readers to the parts of SL I’ve had to dig deep to find. Most fashion blogs have an open door policy; catering to and advertising for any vendor with deep enough pockets to foot the bill. Here, I want to stick with a unique style, give kudos to artists in SL that do especially phenomenal work, and put on some kickass outfits in the meantime.

A little bit about me: I’m 24 years old and married to the love of my life, whom I happened to meet here in SL. In my real world I’m an accountant by week and a wedding photographer by weekend. I absolutely LOVE doing what I do, both the creative aspects of my photography job and the mathematical precision of my accounting job… I’m a nerd, and I’m proud of it. My favorite videogame of all time is Zelda: Ocarina of Time for N64 or Legend of Dragoon for the Playstation. I love playing softball, volleyball and tennis, watching football (Go Colts!), camping, hiking & kayaking. I have three cats, and they rock; my husband and I sing to and with them regularly. I have a pair of chucks to match every color shirt I own.

I look forward to sharing with you some of favorite things and getting to know my readers. Please don’t hesitate to contact me in World! Avatar Name: Danni Darbyshire.
