Hair Fair 2013 – FIRST!

HAIR FAIR 2013 is finally here! The Fair opens on July 13 and will run through the 28th of the same month, so full 16 days of hair, hair, hair and more hair!  Many hair creators have put a certain portion of their sales for the benefit of the Wigs for Kids, and 100% of all Bandana Sales and Kiosk Donations go to Wigs for Kids too!  For more information of this meaningful event, you can visit the HAIR FAIR’s website here.

Unfortunately, because of my travel, I didn’t get to participate in making the Bandana this year.  Having said that, there are some really cool, classy and cute ones made by designers, bloggers and residents that you don’t want to miss!

I’m also very impressed with the design, layout and color of the sims this year.  They are Lego inspired builds that are very unconventional and playful.  I also understand the sims have been split into three parcels, each one is using the non visible attributes of SL, so we can’t see anyone on the other parcels.  This will help greatly in minimizing lag.  I had the honour of an early access and it was a great pleasure to shop without any lag.  There was no excuses of missing any stores given the early access which explain my inventory now is at least 100 more hair richer after the shopping trip.

Speaking about the sims, I also like how the “routes” are linked that anywhere can be a good starting point.  That means you can pick a store to start, you can turn left or right it doesn’t matter, just keep walking the same direction and you will be able cover all the shops and eventually end up at the same point you started.  Isn’t cool?

You can tell how excited I am about the Hair Fair but enough of talking now…. without further ado, I bring you some of my beloved new hairs!

Muse

Yula from FINESMITH has recently made these exquisite Muse set for it’s Muse 2014’s Search.   You may view the official promo picture and find out more about the FINESMITH MUSE SEARCH here!

Here is my interpretation of the set.  The set is fluid like clear water but also fluid like a bird’s movement.   There are four parts of this set and I used the first part as a head dress.

Something Old, Something New

I’ve put together a style using some new and old collections from coldLogic, for its’ Anniversary photo contest.  I have been looking for a classy cardigan in SL and am really glad to find it from the new collections at coldLogic.  The beautiful Fuschia is a welcoming colour for Spring and the cardigan, with a well shaped and fashionable belt, is part of a combo set that comes in a matching mesh dress.  I have decided to wear it with a trendy navy jumper from one of coldLogic’s past collections, for a chic look; a look that you could take from business to social.

As usual I like to use a statement piece in my styling whenever possible and the bib necklace from Paper Couture is just colour and style perfect in this case.  My Stylish Queen heels from BSD Design Studio, made for the latest cycle of SL Fashion Week, is also a must have’s to kick start Spring.  😉

Love any of these items?  LM here! 🙂

Bilo + HANDverk

“Do you have a passion for SL photography? Original mesh content and eclectic clothing/accessory/furniture design? Are you a fan of the Bilo and HANDverk brands? Then this is a contest for you.”

Bilo and HANDverk are having a collaborated contest and I have always been a HANDverk fan but I have to admit I have just got to know about Bilo through this contest, so I went to check the store and found the designs really colorful and vibrant.  Something that I would definitely wear on daily and special ocassions.  Needless to say I decided to take up the challenge and did a last minute submission.

As both Bilo and HANDverk have quite a great selections, it took me awhile to decide what I would like to wear and because I didn’t have much time to work on my submission today, I have gone for something simple yet graceful.  I have also challenged myself to use some items that I already have in my inventory.  I remember the HANDverk Rose necklace that I bought from Collabor88 and didn’t have the chance to put on.  This is just the perfect event for it.  The picture is best view in its’ original size, on flickr.  Hence, do remember to click on the picture below and follow the steps to view it.
