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…)

Hot and Hawter

August 13, 2009

I know it has been a while since I posted, and I don’t even have vacation as an excuse!  Actually, what I have is the ANTI-vacation excuse.  I’ve been stuck working and doing all the daily things that make life… you know… life, and it has been TOOOOO hot around here!  Like, melt your mama hot.

Well, one good thing has come out of this heat wave: it gave me an idea for the post.  Why is it that even though I know darn well my av cannot feel the temperature, I still feel a need to dress her to match MY temperature?  Strange thing, that.  But, in this case, good, because it gives me an excuse to show off a couple of my favoritey favorite new pieces, which are madly appropriate for when it gets crankypants hot outside.

The first outfit is a casual romper from the new and deservedly popular Narwhal.  The green is super fun, and it has a great detail in texture and fit.  And, it couldn’t be more perfect for a hot day of running errands.  I paired it with two tanks, in yellow and pink, from Ohmai‘s collection, and my absolute favorite belt from Reek.  It changes texture, and what textures!  Gumby, Mario Brothers, Star Wars… the fit is great, too.  To top it off, I slipped into my creamshop flip flops.  LOVE!  SQUEE!  They are soooo cute, and the skin is truly easy to match, with little painted toes peeping out.  I put these on, then wore them to go out and buy a few more colors.  🙂

The second outfit is slightly more refined, but equally breezy and cool.  The Haver tiered frock from Whippet and Buck is stylish with the color blocking, and the tiers!  They attach at three different points, for total flexibility and a perfect fit, no matter what your proportions.  The shoes from Maitreya are in heavy rotation for me, and I can’t get over the awesome bows around the ankle.  Total, complete cuteness.

I love my hair, but lord, I can’t stand to have it on my neck when it is hot out!  So neither can my av, apparently… the pigtails are courtesy of W&Y, and the frantic spikiness of the “tails” makes me grin.  With all this color, I had to break out a skin from Curio, the Tulip makeup in the April skin.  Flushed cheeks seem appropriate, no?  I tried a more polished route with the dress, pairing the Allison updo from the brand new fri.day with a great new(ish) skin from Atomic.  The nude colors really show off the tan sheen on the skin, I think.

And… that’s it for now!  It’s time for my afternoon popsicle.  See you soon… stay cool!
