She’s the Kind of Girl You Can Take Home

Hello!!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or are brand new to my blog (oh by the way if so, HAI!) you’ll quickly find out that my new favorite hair designer is quickly becoming D!va — they’re just so cute! I can’t get enough of these styles! Snapshot_096

I have…. a feeling…. I’m going to be wearing these a LOT. I mean… I already am… but if there were just a few more long styles I could wear, it’d probably be exclusive. Probably. ANYway! In my hunt today for the perfect location for my Oh-So-Darling outfit today, I came upon La Galleria — this place makes probably the most gorgeous interior furnishings ever! I’m so completely in love with their kitchens…it makes me want to have more than one in my home.

But Danni that’s just crazy talk!

Yeah. Talking to one’s self in a blog and being just completely entertained is crazy-talk, too. But hey, if you don’t enjoy your own company how can you expect to be at all interesting to anyone else?

Actually I find myself wildly entertaining.

Moving right along. Tomorrow is Press Day for the SL10B Birthday Extravaganza and I. am. so. PUMPED! I’ve got my tour scheduled and I can’t wait to get in and see all the incredible content that has been put together for the celebration. Check out this map they’ve sent out… this is going to be huge and I cannot wait!

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:

Snapshot_090

 

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

Snapshot_043I’ve taken to having just as much fun finding the location for an outfit photo to be taken as I do putting the outfit itself together. Strawberry Singh turned me on to The Trace via her blog post yesterday, Bloom. A few clicks later and I’m on Windlight Photography’s Blog — if you’re looking to do some exploring I highly, highly recommend following this blog along with many other travel blogs. I get so jaded sitting alone on my homestead I completely forget about the incredible sims and teraform art there is on the grid. Go! Shoo! Get to exploring!

Snapshot_052

In a setting like this, I’ll take a bath out in the open, no prob!

 

However, if you’ve chosen to stick around, I don’t blame you – I’ve still got some pretty neat stuff in store. Moving on to today’s outfit.  I was kind of going for an explorer kind of feel… but I was too hooked on this dress from 2Chez that it really just ended up being a kickass outfit to wear when you do whatever you want, because you look that good. So let’s see this outfit up close…

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:
Tumblr – virtualmesl.tumblr.com/
Flickr – http://www.flickr.com/photos/96888767@N02/
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!

..:: Night in Paris ::..

Snapshot_033Today I wanted to fall back to the basics just a teensy bit – as a reminder there are still some amazing designers making some AMAZING non-mesh clothing. In honor of the good ‘ole days… the only mesh in today’s outfit is my hair by Elikatira. I additionally need to say my new official favorite Parisian sim is Paris Eiffel — I’ve seen a lot of attempts to make a build feel just like you’re in Paris but none have succeeded so well as this one! This made me wish I had a beret and a bicycle… perhaps I’ll do that real soon!

I need to rave about Belleza’s Best Buy June Skin – Ava. This is up for only 400L and it’s just adorable! The face is clean and fresh; just my cup of tea when it comes to being able to throw on some make-up to match an outfit. Picture above IS altered, but it is just as beautiful in world. Probably sticking in this one for just a little bit XD
