So, next on my list of hair to show you from Hair Fair is Lamb and Redmint.  I love the pastel colors from both brands and I love, love this paticular hair style.  My skin is from Adam N Eve and is called Taliya for SLink Visage and I used the Fae Hud full of cute make-ups to change up my look below.  My darker version above is from the Goth set of make ups also for Taliya.  Adam N Eve always has such cute make up selections, so make sure to check out these items.

Slink for Shoetopia

shoes1y

I have seen so many fabulous blogposts about Shoetopia.  Nice job bloggers and photographers!  I would also have to give most of that credit to the shoe designers who have created exquisite designs for this event, as well as, to the event planners,  Sophia Harlow and Anessa Stine, who put this all together.  The public is going to be amazed by this event. It truly is a shoe heaven.  For those who need some more background, Shoetopia is working in coalition with Soles4Souls, a nonprofit organization.   Each designer has put out a purchase where donations will go directly to this organization. This money will be used to provide shoes to the people of the Philippines and southeast Asia, a country ravaged by recent storms.  The devastation is great.  I know our generosity as SLers®  can and will be felt by those that have lost so much.  If you want to know more about Soles4Souls I encourage you to do your own research.  If you don’t have the time, I recommend Cajsa Lilliehook’s article about the organization.

Siddean Munro of Slink has launched another set of fabulous feet for this event and delicious shoes to compliment them.  They are the high version of mesh feet, so you can expect some sexy shoes in your near future.  She has released a few styles to wear with these newest feet.  When you purchase the blush-colored Demi Boots, 100 percent of your donation will go towards Soles4Souls .  The boot features a cross hatch pattern down the side that exposes glimpses of the leg, and it also has a hud to turn off the metal toe, transforming the boot into a peeptoe    The high arch gives the boots an edge, and they look fabulous in all the colors available.  This is a reminder again you will need to purchase the newest slink mesh feet to wear this boot.

I can’t wait for everyone to have a chance to experience this event. You will fall in love with everything about Shoetopia.

I heard a voice say, “Please don’t hurt me.”

I swiftly lift up my cane and nestle it under one shoulder and boldly move from space A to space B, leaving one space completely empty and one, full of gold and glitter.

As soon as you try on one outfit from this round of the anniversary edition of Collabor88 you will find yourself doused in the sparkles, the deep, rich colors, the satin, and the fur of the roaring 20s.  There is so much luxury in this round that I’m practically paralyzed with happiness.  I would get up and twirl around if I wasn’t so tipsy from that last sip of sparking, yellow cocktail, so I shall sit here and chat about one of my favorite outfits.

Tres Blah’s shorts and tops this round captured my heart.  I love the layered top, the sequin, the transparency to the layers.  The shorts are just oh so cute.  The texturing top notch (as usual).   I like that I can mix and match these pieces at any time to make a different outfit.

Every once in awhile I make a purchase strictly because it sets me back into to my past.  The piece that totally did that this time is Lenox’s 1991 dress available at FaMESHed this month.  You would think I owned such a dress, but honestly, I had my nose buried in books as a child, but my sister, the stylish one, most definitely did.  I remember sneaking into her closet as a middle schooler and playing dress up.   Yes, I was that annoying little sister who hanged on every word my sister said and mimicked her every move.  Really,  she played cool very well.  I wished so much that I could pretend so well I made it real.  I didn’t.  Maybe it was because I tried real hard…really hard to make fairies and huge castles in the sky happen, but that is beside the point.   I was in awe, at the time, of the image she was able to create.  Fifteen years later, I often get to chat with my sister about the past.  She talks of being insecure, of not knowing who she was, of second guessing every move.  I always thought the opposite. Shows you that no matter how close you are (we shared the same bedroom), reality is really just perception.   Smoke and mirrors.

I’ve been thinking again.

A bit ago, I saw this photograph of a girl sitting on a bench in a red beret, so imagine my surprise when I saw Truth Hair put out Edith, hair with a beret.  This photo was meant to happen!  So, I used a photograph as inspiration.  Some things helped in the process of making this photograph happen.  Fri.day had a retirement sale (probably over by the time you read this-ends Jan 13).  This is awesome for three reasons: discounted clothing, more new mesh items to come in the future, and I scored some items that work well under my mesh stuff, like this dress (which I just used as a top).  I was hopelessly looking for something to fit under this jacket and the shirt and tie from this dress fit nicely under, and it adds a bit o’ character to the overall outfit.

If you like to stay up to date on real-life inspired fashion, then Vive Nine is your store.  Leather-sleeved jackets are most certainly trending, and this jean jacket can be versatile-dress up, dress down–your still in style!  Glasses as accessories are also a current trend, and I decided to be a bit more studious today.  I’ve been thinking again.  You can think for yourself too by purchasing a pair from SOVI3T.

The rest of my outfit are clothing must-haves, from Izzie’s, black tights, and from N-Core, red heels.  Shhh.  I found another pair of red shoes, and here I thought I didn’t have any (you will have to read my previous post to understand), however, these I can wear with tights.

And, there you have it folks- these glasses make me wanna read a book or you know, something smart, so off I go…..

I’m am beyond happy that COCO is releasing more often right now.  I love the leather coat that I got from there, and this tuxedo jacket is another to add to my collection of outerwear   My favorite option is that they can be worn with or without the shirt underneath, and because they have that option, the combinations can be endless.  The jacket itself seems to work well with other mesh items underneath because it was made for layering.

DeLa also released a new pony tail hairstyle.  The back is so pretty!

I have been eyeing this Truth Hair for a while, but didn’t quite know what outfit I wanted to use with it until I found this dress by Has Been Vintage, so while I may not have tons of new, new items here, I do have a beautiful outfit to add to my collection.  I love vintage stuff!   The dress comes in a variety of colors (from pastels to darker options), and it is a great option for your New Year’s celebrations because of the full skirt, and mesh under garments.  I tested a few dance moves and all my bits stayed hidden, although you might just flash those under garments in extreme movements.

And since I was at Has Been Vintage already, I splurged and got this tango dress because you never know when someone might ask you out to dance!  Currently, you can find a Holiday Sale (extended until Dec 31st) at Has Been (25%-50% off mesh items & 50-75% off non-mesh).   Quite honestly, I am really surprised this store hasn’t been featured all that often.  I loved what they had, and I wish I had stumbled across them earlier.
