Skin Fair 2017: What a difference a year makes

Wow, what a difference a year makes. Skin Fair 2017 (beautifully done by Esode and Pale Girl Productions) has nearly arrived and unlike what I claimed last year, appliers are basically all you will find. If you’re still wearing system skins, well…I suspect most people who read beauty blogs have long been on the mesh head train anyway 😉 What… Read more →

A case for champagne

I’m making a case for champagne with this dress from Azul. I have never worn inventory from this creator before, and the Zaria dress is unique, with bell sleeves and a satin overlay bodice. Very, very pretty and so fun to style. It also comes with flexi parts (not shown). I remember when flexi came to the grid (yes, my… Read more →

Let It Spring

I just learned that Boston is expecting a foot of snow on Sunday. LOL. So yeah, I decided to focus on Spring colors today. Please, let it Spring (instead of snow)! Thank you in advance. I am still quite obsessed with the new Lien applier from Bold & Beauty available at Skin Fair. I mean I haven’t really taken it… Read more →

Skin Fair: Top Picks (part III)

My final little compilation of Skin Fair and my top picks, an ode to system skins. I happen to LOVE system skins, so please don’t stop making them! Quite honestly, the most favorite skins in my inventory are NOT appliers…yet. My three top system skin picks from Skin Fair this year are from Tuli, Lara Hurley and Bold & Beauty.… Read more →

Skin Fair: Top Picks (Part II)

Part II of my top picks at Skin Fair continues, this time focusing on Fiore, one of my newer recommended head lines. There are several applier releases from Fiore at Skin Fair, as well as other creators for the 5 Fiore heads. For my purposes, I picked two of Fiore’s own offerings: Doll and Taylor. Two totally different skins with… Read more →

Skin Fair: Top Picks (part I)

Yesterday I said, “I can’t see getting too many appliers…” All I can say to that is LOL. I was super impressed with some of the new appliers, primarily for Catwa heads. I did also pick up some new system skins, but I’ll start with my Skin Fair Top Picks for Catwa in Part I… In terms of Catwa appliers,… Read more →

Intricate

Yesterday was intimate, today is intricate. I feel like because designs in SL often have to be exaggerated to be “seen,” sometimes the subtleties of a piece of jewelry or belt, for example, are overlooked. So this is all about those details that make whatever we’re wearing special. Very. Even if you’re the only person who notices because everyone else… Read more →

Top 3 reasons things get stuck in my inventory

As I prepare space in my inventory for Shiny Shabby (yay!!!!)…I take a hard look at what I haven’t worn and consider why…why do things get stuck in my inventory? #1 – Where would I wear it? I love the look of whatever it is but for whatever reason, it won’t be seen beyond my attic skybox. It’s SL so… Read more →

Impish

I loved this round of Kawaii Project, but it’s true that I don’t really do kawaii really well >.< Still, I absolutely LOVE these shoes by Kata0nik. They are just tiny bits of perfection. With my pixie hair from Moon, I feel a bit like a pretty little imp. Is that a thing? Another item from Kawaii Project, this sweet… Read more →

Spectrum

There are skins I wear regularly that are so distinct, no one would ever wonder what I am wearing. Glam Affair is one. Belleza is another. Both these brands do impeccable work when it comes to creating varied and distinct skin lines, so expertly crafted it’s no wonder they are some of the grid’s most popular faces. But within each… Read more →
