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…

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…)

Gray Skies

January 7, 2010

Blech.  I hate taking the tree down, I hate throwing away remnants of Christmas cookies, and I hate that it will be over 300 days before I can sing carols again.  Add to that– January is the grayest of gray months for much of the Northern hemisphere.  Optimists may think that means a peaceful respite from the busy December days, and it is.  But for me it often just leaves me missing the twinkly lights of yesterday!

So before I get tooooooo gray-mooded myself, I thought I would get back into SL a bit and see what cropped up while I was away being festive.  Luckily, this sweater was just waiting for me.  Thank the lord for This is a Fawn!  🙂  After that, I took a look at Mirone and found the first new hair I’ve seen there in far too long: Miaa is such a lopsided, fluffy masterpiece.  It makes my forehead look huge in an alien-esque way, and I don’t mean that as a bad thing. Almost retro, almost sci-fi, and really a lot of fashion fun.

I took out one of my all time fave skirts, from sugarcube, and some fantastic Decoy boots and voilá… a girl that matches her mood.  And although it is no longer the time for spangles and sparkles– red lips are always in season!

So… time to perk up!  Be back next time with cheer and color.  Until then, stay warm, and embrace the gray…

Designers United… for Jellyfish!

August 16, 2009

Get ready to squee: yesterday the Designer’s United Event opened!  This time the theme was Jellyfish, a very appropriate theme for August in my neck of the woods.  The range of creations is amazing… everything from poses to hair to clothing and accessories, with some interpretations of jellyfish being more literal than others.  In any case, the proof is in the Lindens– I could not reel in my shopping impulses and I promptly bought out the whole store of things for my virtual closet.

Is that crazy of me?  You be the judge:

Bustier

close up bustier

First off– the skin.  JM:Mai has created two versions of a Jellyfish skin, and this one is called water.  It is utterly lovely, with freckles and a translucent glow that really does recall the look of a jellyfish, but in a non-costumey, flattering and wearable way.   The makeup on the face is all courtesy of the skin, but the tattoo below the neck is not.  That is an adorably affordable creation from Duboo, rendering Jellyfish as cartoonish and colorful things which… well, I would like to IMAGINE they are.

Adding to the adorable factor of this outfit is the uber-fun two tone hair from Ohmai, which has my fave ginger as the base with a big streak of lemony yellow threaded in the braid from the back.  There are other color combinations available, too, and the style is so hipster and does mimic jellyfishy tentacles very cleverly.

The bustier top is from This is a Fawn, and while it is not the most literal of jellyfish interpretations, it certainly is squeelicious and has great gradiation of colors and texture!  I paired that with some freebie tights from Royal Blue, and some genius poofer shorts from Gigi, for a funky little hipster Jelly girl look.

(Another outfit and all the slurls, after the jump)
