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…

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.

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!  🙂
