May Fair Lady

Untitled-1You’ll have to forgive me the pun… Ever since Miss Berry issued her weekly blogger challenge… I’ve known it was going to be Hepburn. Had to be Hepburn. With the help of the always fabulous Tres Beau Dress Store I was able to throw together a look PDQ I think… not bad! So, naturally, The use of Mayfair in my pun required a visit to my favorite shopping sim.

Snapshot_089I just love going to Mayfair… the architecture is fantastic and they’ve done a beautiful job allowing you to feel like you’re in the high society side of town doing some upscale shopping… and the vendors there do not disappoint! I wandered around for quite a while, striking poses and throwing lights around for the better part of an hour, which drew quite a few onlookers… but that’s okay, I don’t hate the lime light!

Here’s a funny little snippit… so, I’m horrible about accessories. I LOVE them, but I tend to find two or three accessories I love, and just wearing them with everything. Starting a blog showing off outfits I decided….yeah, should probably mix it up a bit. However, my collection of bags is horribly scarce (Working on that!). The above picture is actually Maitreya’s bag from her shoe shop… it’s damn cute, and I have no shame in toting it around! I got that bag today when I was picking up these flip flops:

Would you believe that’s my first pair of flip flops in SL? No joke, there… but it’s ironic as as soon as it stops snowing RL I’m wearing those babies. Love my flip flops. Anyhow… a few more shots before I divulge the details of the outfit. I really love shooting in Mayfair… the urban feel is hard to pull off without a sim getting too laggy – but they do a great job of it! It’s nice to get out of the woods once in while.Snapshot_082 Snapshot_084

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:
