Designers Wanted!!!

Designers Wanted!!!

Hello!
My name is Danni Darbyshire and I’ve recently begun a new SL Fashion & Photography blog called VirtualMe SL. Beginning a new blog and getting your foot in the door is tough, and we’re all broke as hell, so I’m offering some incentive to begin a designer-blogger relationship that costs nothing on both our parts.

I would love to meet up with you and make you a profile picture, free of charge, that features one or more of your recent items. YOU WILL NOT GIVE THE PRODUCT TO ME – YOU WILL WEAR IT YOURSELF OR BRING YOUR OWN MODEL. I am not looking for handouts – I’d like to demonstrate my abilities and see if we can strike up a relationship.

Please consider checking out my sites:

Blog – virtualmesl.wordpress.com/

No hard feelings at all if my style doesn’t fit yours, I will give you a high resolution image you may use at your discretion. With your permission, your image and product will be featured on my blog within 7 days of our shoot (depending on response and interest, chances are good it’ll be a LOT faster than that)

If you’re interested, please contact me and we can set up an appointment!

[Unrequited Love]

Snapshot_055So, today’s photo location totally happened on accident. I put this outfit together this morning and got wrapped up in client photoshoots today, so was worried I wasn’t going to get some blog time! Lo and Behold while scouting for new locations I came across Kids Shopping Central! JUBILEE — I was looking for something simple: a well-designed kid-friendly location to do some family shoots and what I got was an EXTREMELY gorgeous sim! I’m in love, they’re going to have to boot me out… I live under the bridge, now.

Snapshot_060

Go ahead, judge me.

Now onto the outfit. I built today’s outfit around a pair of shoes I saw roll up on my flickr yesterday and HAD TO HAVE! JD’s (Just Design) new wedged sandals they released are OMG so amazing! I’m going to go back and buy up every color, I’m wearing these all summer! Absolutely my favorite thing about these shoes, aside from how lovely they are, is JD’s skin perfect system:

They’ve got a catalog of almost all the major skin lines and the style and tone to boot! I just had to find mine, click apply and 5 seconds later…. they matched PERFECTLY! The following image below is straight outta second life with no manipulation:

Snapshot_056Granted, you can kinda see where shoe meets leg… but only because you’re looking for it. For all intents and purposes this system is FLAWLESS and I’d love to see this catch on with more designers in-world. Five Stars JD! I paired the outfit with some darling high-waist boho shorts from FA Creations and Maitreya’s Athena sweater. Top it off with Truth’s new Light Brown Delta hair and voila! Perfecto!

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:

Snapshot_030I love these earrings!! They are one of the gifts from Pure Poison this week and I just can’t take them off!! Check out this and TONS more great things at SL Fashion Week!

I’ll Take the White Wine

Snapshot_013

Fairly certain today is the first day it’s started to feel like summer so I threw together an outfit that I felt embodied the gorgeous summer weather! Featured here and, in my humble opinion, the total showstoppers in this outfit are the pants by Drift! I absolutely, absolutely, COMPLETELY adore these pants.

Snapshot_014

….Seriously. The mesh on these is FLAWLESS! Whatever position I put my avatar in, these pants held their incredible shape. Gah! I love them! *Swoon time*

Snapshot_015

 

Last but not least, I need to rave about this hair. I’ve been on a personal mission to seek out original hairstyles from places I haven’t heard of….however, I slipped! Somehow some way I ended up in the Magika store, and I was FORCED by…myself… to buy this and about 15 other hairstyles. Holy guacamole, my friends, Magika has done it again and with the mesh genre taken hairstyles above and beyond the rest! I love the texture, the detailed wisps, and I. LOVE. the hud! Rather than making me spend my entire budget on a fatpack, Magika’s provided her customers with this super-nifty hud. You pick which color pack you’d like and get out of there with about 10x the hair colors you’d get the old-fashioned way. Magika… I tip my sunglasses to you…way to rock!

Hoorah! Second Life Fashion Week!

Snapshot_009Snapshot_004I’ve recently been turned onto Second Life Fashion Week and… as a self-diagnosed shopaholic, walking down that walkway and into Shopper-Valhalla is MURDER on the wallet! (NOT kidding, I spent over 3,000L standing in one spot, camming around and drooling!) One of the fantastic things about SFW, though, is that the designers pull together and put out some fantastic freebies promoting their brands.
