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

..:: 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

[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!

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.
