Feast Your Eyes

July 13, 2010

Prim eyelashes. *sigh* Is there anything more fiddly for the SL fashionista to fit?  I have two pairs that I wear routinely, mainly because they already fit and I can’t be bothered to spend time on others.  That is, until yesterday.  Yesterday, you see, I made it a mission of mine not to be such a wimp. Fashion is so eeeeeeasy in SL, it is easy to get lazy about it.  Buy it, wear it, mix it, layer it… a few little clicks.  But in real life, fashion is suffering: be it 4 inch heels or starving into a season of miniskirts.  It was high time for Jenopolis to pay the price of looking good.

So– here are three stellar eyelash sets which I fitted myself in an unusual display of patience and mild suffering.  Not that they are perfect… I’m not THAT good with details.  But I did step back afterwards and think– dang!  Worth the time.  They are pretty amazing little pieces of art.

Also– as a little extra treat for the eyelash work, I featured some thrifty finds of mine from the last week or so.  Including a gorgeous 100L skin!  Enjoy…

Festivals of Flowers and Stars

July 5, 2010

For me, summer festivals are the bestest part of the season.  Sure, I love the beach and vacation and lazing around on weekends drinking beer at barbecues.  But there is something perfectly wonderful about wandering around a festival with a crispy sugary piece of fried dough, browsing through shop stalls, playing games of chance, and people watching.  *happy sigh*

You will understand, then, why I am so FREAKING excited by the plethora of summer fashion festivals all over SL these days.  I haven’t been able to cover them all yet, or even the very biggest (that will be its own post).  Today I am highlighting two of my smaller, quirky faves.   Not just because they are filled with excellent shopping– though they are.  The design and feel of these festivals is so… *happy sigh*.  Believe me, you will have fun!

World Cup Fever

June 26, 2010

I am a girl with a fever these days, and it comes from an unexpected place.  Not new shoes, not lingerie, not a trip to Paris.  My fever comes from South Africa– I have been entirely caught up in the World Cup this year.  This is a real first for me, since my idea of fun does not usually– or ever– involve organized sports.  But I am living in Europe now and I have been completely swept up with the passion and the style and the ohmygod of it all.

So, here it is– a love note and a GO GETUM to my boys of the USA, right before they face Ghana this evening.  Will be cheering for you, and will be looking good doing it!  🙂

Speaking of which… I am at the stadium in my own version of red white and blue. The credit for the enormous and completely BLUE foam finger goes to Reek. Genius work!  And the color is completely mod, so root for whichever team you like.  Another big LURVE goes out to duboo, and the darling Newreem, for some amazing work on these tights– and they are entirely apropos for the World Cup!

The dress is my WHITE, and is one of the most versatile dresses I have ever bought.  It is from Fawn, and rides the rail right between sexeh and indie SO well.  It also creates just the right amount of cleavage to show off the Yummy necklace!

Finally, the RED would have to be my hair, of course!  This time, it’s Clawtooth, and the reddy red shade is a new one for me, called Valentine.  It was a 50L grab at one point in the last couple weeks, and I am really taken with it.

So– that’s all for now.  Good luck to your own team, whoever they may be, and happy shopping! (during non-game hours only, of course…)

Quiet Quirk

October 19, 2009

sepia

I am the first to reach for my neon greens and fuschia when I am feeling particularly odd on any given day, but it is Monday.  I am feeling… quiet.  Sleepy.  And still a bit quirky.  So I pulled together this look entirely in shades of nude and white, inspired by the feeling of a Monday morning lull and the brilliant new stuff in my closet from Ohmai and Clawtooth.

full

The dress is Emma’s Ruffles, a utterly cute creation from Ohmai.  I think my favorite thing about shopping Ohmai, though, is looking through the names of the colors!  This is Nile Nudist.  Hee!  Doesn’t it just conjure up images of floating on Cleopatra’s barge in nothing but a black wig with a gold snake tiara?

Other than the name, of course, the silhouette is soooo yummy, and it comes as a dress (as shown here) and as a tunic top as well.  Squee!  I am a sucka for a twofa!

The other standout piece in this outfit is the 50 Linden special from Clawtooth this week.  A birdie made a nest on my head!!  I know, this has been around for a while, but I hadn’t seen it in this autumnal, soft color before, and I just love it.

A stunning necklace from ICON, some supercool tights from DARE, and a pair of unstoppably funky shoes from Miel all came together with the dress and err… hat.  I am ready to face Monday, in all its beigey dayness.

Hope you had a great weekend, and Happy Week!  🙂

Date Night

August 28, 2009

It’s Friday, and that means date night!  Yayyy!  Well, it is a bittersweet date night for me tonight, actually, since tomorrow morning I’m leaving my sweetie here in Portugal for two weeks, to visit with my family in the States and get all the final preparations together for our wedding day there.  I guess that deserves another YAY!  But I wish we didn’t have to be apart until just four days before the wedding… no more dates until the honeymoon!

So, you have caught me in a pretty mushy mood today, and my post is an outfit appropriate for a last date before the big day.  We met and started our relationship in SL, so this is a little tribute to him, my wonderful guy and almost hubby…

Enough of that!  Now I have to go find a dress for the RL date.  Hmmm… I think chances are slim I will find anything as wonderful and sexy as this bijou gold dress, but– a girl’s gotta try!  🙂

Procrastinators Alert: Skipping Stones Hunt

August 23, 2009

Yes, the Skipping Stones Hunt has been going on for almost two weeks now, and I have just gotten around to doing it.  *sigh*  Hey, I can’t be too disappointed, though, because it doesn’t matter WHEN you do it, what matters is– do you like your new loot?!?

The short answer is YES YES YES!  There are some super-fantastic cute things on this hunt, and I did find stores I had never heard of before that I really liked.  What a great side benefit to hunting– new shopping places!  Yayyy!

For those who have been under a rock (or on vacation) for the last two weeks, the hunt highlights the best bohemian and alternative stores in SL, and has been running since August 10.  The last day of the hunt is August 24, which is… tomorrow!  So if you are a procrastinator like me, you better get your hustle on and start looking for rocks.

Untitled-1

There is toooooo much in the 60+ stores to spotlight everything, but I did notice a lot of bikinis in my swag… so here is a look at the swimsuits of the hunt, paired with some hunted skin and hair as well.  Everything is free, of course, it just takes a little time to find each hidden stone.  (If you are interested in speeding up your time, try these official hints.)

Have fun, and when you are ready, START HERE.  Good luck!  ❤
