Fox in the Snow

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:45 pm by Fayne Khandr

Looking for a place to shelter from the cold. Of course, it might help if I’d remember to wear my coat out.

As it is I’m only part wrapped up today, the look starting with a sweater that was part of a Happy Holidays Hunt gift. While the black does cover up a lot of the detail I really like the design; I’m a particular fan of the prim sleeves, which are pushed back up from the wrists, slouching casually in a way that’s rather different to much of what else I’m seeing on the market at present. Made to be worn as a dress, if you choose to wear this cropped you can layer up with other pieces using the underpants part to cover midriff.; the seam’s a touch visible if you were to look too closely, but as a freebie this isn’t an issue at all. If you missed the Salma knitted dress in the Happy Holidays Hunt you can still pick up the red version completely free in store – it is a Christmas Gift so I’d suggest being quick!

Poinsettia

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:31 pm by Fayne Khandr

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a Poinsettia.

If you’re in the market for a new dress for party going you should take a look at ORTA’s new Cassandra gown. With billowing skirt featuring a slight train to the back, Cassandra features a deep v neckline to showcase your assets, with bows ornamenting the shoulders. Simple but dramatic, you can also opt to remove the skirt for a sexy bodysuit that can be layered or worn alone if there’s a certain someone who’s been extra good to you this year. There are some beautiful light and dark colours to choose from and you’ll find matching clutches available in store too. Read the rest of this entry »

Song of Songs

It’s a funny time of the year to be walking alone.

Bare Rose is one of those stores that I visit infrequently, but every time I pop in I wonder why I’m not there more often. June Dion’s store is bursting with inexpensive outfits with everything from fantasy to casual styles. You do have to sift through, but it’s definitely worth it to locate gems like this cropped jacket from the Snow Smile set. For less than L$200 you’ll get several entire outfits – recolours of the same thing – but since the items are also transferable you can either load up on options yourself or kit out your friends and alts. This fur-trimmed coat has a suede feel and comes complete with wide half sleeves, the open front ornamented with popper fastenings on thick leather straps. It’s cute and cosy, well worth the sale price alone although you’ll also get sloganed tops, denim shorts and sash belts for your money. Read the rest of this entry »

The Moneymaker

Skin shopping is an expensive business and it can take rather a lot of dilly-dallying on my part before I’ll decide on a new favourite. I’d been sitting around in skin demos all day on Sunday trying to decide what to buy and nothing seemed to sit quite right, until AtomicSparkle Skytower of AtomicBambi kindly sent some review copies of her latest skins on me.

The Sound of Silence

“You hesitate to stab me with a word, and know not – silence is the sharper sword.” Samuel Johnson

TART’s cardigan started this look off. I have it in a few colours now; it’s so easy to wear and looks great layered with more summery tops and dresses. Buttoned beneath the chest and falling open below, the jersey stretches around the body, given shape by the puffed sleeves that finish just over the wrists. Read the rest of this entry »

Colour Collision

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 2:43 pm by Fayne Khandr

I had a little extra time today so I made sure I did a swoop on Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a few bargains which I’ve worked into this look, although there’s all manner of new and old pieces worked through the styling. Hopefully you’ll already have one or two in your inventory, which always helps with the budget.

One of my first stops was lamb where I picked up a new do for next to nothing. This style is a rework of one already in store, featuring a thick fringe cut across the brow with the rest of the hair falling in smooth, soft waves that stop just below the shoulders. You can opt for blonde or brunette to suit. Read the rest of this entry »

Self Confessed Chocoholic

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:37 pm by Fayne Khandr

There’s more to life than chocolate. Just not today.

My typical choices of hair colour vary from dark brown to red, but most of my Hair Fair purchases this year have been in brown tones. This rich chocolate texture from Magika definitely suited the theme of this post, and happily the style I chose is accompanied by a colour-change tie that also comes in a cocoa tone. Magika is featuring several new styles at Hair Fair 2010, but Kirsty was an instant favourite with me, the hairline high with fringe parted on a bias with wisps covering the right eye. The body of the hair is pulled back under the band, a few strands still flicking free, twisted into a large bun on the side. If you’re finding the fair a little difficult to navigate, the Hair Fair blog features a map of all the sims listing where each designer can be found – very handy if you’re fighting lag and already know what you’re looking for.

Sea Breeze

Tied to the ocean but lost in the sea; better to enjoy it from a distance, perhaps.

I’ve been down at Wear Gray again where I spotted this slip style mini dress from De3oR and didn’t hesitate in picking it up. More often than not I layer pieces like this as long-length tops, but if you’re feeling daring this is a pretty standalone. With deep, wide neckline and thin straps which criss-cross at the back; the zebra-print trim on the hemline is a bold addition, not to mention the visible but not overpowering nipple detail.

Oh Vanity!

“We are so vain that we care for the opinion of those we don’t care for.” – Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach

Hair Fair 2010 is featuring some great new styles like this one from Amacci. With hair cropped into a fluffy bob, sections are pulled back from the front and knotted up at the back of the head for a kittenish look that frames the face beautifully. With flyaway strands keeping this soft and light, the Ulrica style also offers gentle movement and rich textures with glossy highlights for added realism. Amacci is well worth a stop on your way through the fair: there’s a free goodie bag at their tent with two new releases and a hairbase in the Red Auburn colour. 50% of sales from another new style, Sinnea, are being donated to the Hair Fair charity.

Bohemian Elements

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:23 pm by Fayne Khandr

Hair Fair 2010 is in full swing. If you haven’t stopped by already it’s worth a trip, provided you don’t mind leaving with a rather empty purse. Sales from many vendors at Hair Fair are being donated to the charity Wigs for Kids which offers support through hair replacement to children who are being treated with chemotherapy, countering the effects that losing hair can cause to their self esteem. It’s a great cause: take a look at the Wigs for Kids website for more information. Read the rest of this entry »
