The fierce protector

“There is a look that can melt a woman’s heart from across a crowded room that tells other men, “She’s under my protection…” ~ Graham R. White

Mine 004

It’s not very common for me to wear coats in this fashion in real life as we just don’t have that kind of weather for it.  Casual is the norm and even in the winter, which if you know the southern part of the state of Florida, it’s mildly less hot than at other times of the year.   It’s why dressing up in Second Life has its perks.  Alright. We just like playing dress up.

The rigged mesh coat is from MoDANNA and is currently available at Fashion Fair that runs only until the 15th of October.  There are 8 colors to choose from and it’s reasonably priced at $179 lindens.

The other thing that I want to share is that Apple Fall still has some fantastic discounted items at the main store.  The chairs in the background and the building are both $0 lindens currently at the store.  You really can’t beat that price!

Bandana Day

Bandana 026

Tomorrow is the last day of the hair fair.  So you still have time to rush over there and grab some fantastic hairs and your bandana and be a part of supporting the Wigs for Kids, a charity that provides hair replacement systems and support to children who have lost their hair due to medical issues at no cost to them and their families.  With every purchase of hair a portion of the proceeds goes to this charity.

Plus don’t forget to pick up your bandana for tomorrow as well.  Since 2007, the last day of the hair fair everyone in Second Life is encouraged to take off their hair and wear a bandana in support of this worthy cause.  The bandanas are decorated by designers or anyone who wants to participate and often accompanied by a note card sharing their story of why they support this cause.  Once the event is over all bandanas are destroyed never to be sold again and 100% of the proceeds from all bandanas sold go directly to Wigs for Kids.

Taxi to Hair Fair.

The end of the road

The end of the road 012

Some home decor items to show you today.  The Fantasy Collective is now open and Jian brings you the Demilune set, which includes the sofa, chair, coffee table, a side table, book and candle decor.  With this set you get the option of texture change on all the wood. To be exact about 7 choices there.  I find that I’m always going for the darker wood versions, so I thought maybe a little changing up here would be good.  This is the grey wood that I’m displaying.  The rug also has a texture option that gives you six choices in color.   You can find this set in PG and Adult version with loads of animations in each.

I’m using the boxwood shrubs in the background just outside the window again that are from Jian, a recently released set that works with a HUD to give you the option of choosing the season you want.  It’s summer here so I did a mixture of that and spring.

I am wearing some new items that MoDANNA has at the Manga Fair.  The Sakura Collection, is a kawaii punk inspired collection that includes the jacket and skirt shown here.  You will find the jacket in 6 pastel colors and the skirt in 6 patterns, but that’s not all in the collection.  You can also find ties and kawaii socknimals (applier socks with animal print at top) that can be mixed and matched with all the items.

Never wanted you, only I do

Never Wanted U 049

The doors have officially opened now for the Hair Fair and be prepared for all that comes with a popular event.  The good news is there are so many great hairs and the selection is quite big for you to choose from. It took me a couple hours to just go through each of the demos and place all those I liked into a maybe folder.  Then afterwards go back and pull the ones I definitely wanted to buy right now into a separate folder. It sounds like I’m terribly organized.  I’m not, just gotten smarter.  Laughs.

For me it was hard to choose between wanting a fun hair that maybe I’ll only use one or two times versus a more practical one I will use more often.   I say do a little of both!  It’s all for a worthy cause, as with every transaction a certain amount of proceeds goes to Wigs for Kids.

While I was fortunate enough to get in with early access I do recommend joining the demo group and try the hairs beforehand.  Then you can avoid the lag monster and just run in to grab all those hairs you want. To make it even more easier for you the Hair Fair blog has done a wonderful job of listing all the stores and map guide that I am just going to direct you straight to it.  You can just find the store and click to teleport you to that location where the store is located. This is where area search can come in handy too.

Hair Fair 2015 Store Slurls & Map Guide

I’m wearing this cute hair from Vanity Fair and a style that I absolutely love in real life if I could get my hair to work with me.  The other nice benefit of the hair fair is all the gifts that you can pick up from just about every store that is participating in the fair.  The sunglasses I am wearing is the gift from LeLutka at the hair fair.

Have a great Saturday no matter what you do.

Epia 006

I am wearing the black dog collar, which is another gacha item by Epia at the Arcade.

It brings a bit of a smile to my lips as it reminds me of a story and I can’t help and dedicate the wearing of it to Draco. Smirks.

Shoes can set you on the right path.

21Shoe 037

It’s almost that time again ladies where you can grab some fabulous shoes for the price of one.   The 21Shoe event is every month on the 21st and only for 24 hours can you buy two pairs of exclusive shoes from some of the established shoe creators in Second Life.  I’m showing two pairs from different designers that are participating this month.  The first picture are the pumps from G&D that are made to fit the Maitreya mesh body, the Slink high feet and The Mesh Project body.

21Shoe 007

This second pair denim heels is made by KC Couture and has been made to fit the Maitreya mesh body, Slink high feet and the Belleza mesh body.  If you want to see the other shoes for this month, check out the 21Shoe  website where the pictures of the shoes are being added daily.   If you want to stay informed about the event and get some great gifts as well, there is a group in-world you can join for a small fee.  This month’s gift is 12 exclusive fashion poses courtesy of Thirty Loop Animations.

The last thing I want to mention is this brick path set by Jian that she is releasing tomorrow for 25L Tuesday. Seriously, that’s a steal!   The brick path is low impact, and has 26 pieces and 12 texture options that can be changed either piece by piece or to all paths of this set by one click.   After tomorrow the price will go up, so make sure you grab it.
