More hairs, more fun!

I so enjoy my job…:D

It’s so great to be able to blog fashion and wear amazing items from some of the most talented people on the grid!  And I have four – yes, count them, FOUR! – great hairstyles from Alli & Ali!

First comes the Freyja hair, an adorable updo with curly tendrils of hair escaping from the style – just lovely!  And of course, since this style is named after a Norse goddess, I had to go to a sim with an RP area that is named after the same goddess! (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lexicolo/235/13/46  ).  But because it’s a RP sim, I had to go dressed in reproduction Nordic fashion.  Personally, I think it’s just tooooooo adorable!

I had a blast, wandering around the sim, trying on different colors of the Freyja hair and making my way to Freyja’s hut, where I saw a projection of the earth, a desk I sat at so I could feel important (lol!) with a stained-glass window of the goddess behind it, a VERY comfy hammock, and Freyja’s golden boar – I even sat on it!  And my hair looked tooooooo cute through it all!

The next hairstyle, Maxiflexi, is a cute chunky-cut layered bob with blunt bangs.  It really moves!  Very flexi!  It is flattering and comes in a variety of colors.  I wore it at Marcel’s, one of my favorite hangouts on the grid – it’s super friendly, with no one getting clique-y, and some of the best DJs on the grid playing there!  Open most days from 3-6 pm SLT.  (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Oyster/198/223/82)

Another really cuuuuute hairstyle is Mariska, a short pixie cut with asymmetrical bangs that fall across the face – perfect for framing your gorgeous face!  I’m wearing some items from some talented friends of mine – the parasol and poncho-spaghetti strap top-jeans outfit is by Gustav von Rosenheim and CT Till, respectively.  (When they have stores with priced items, I’ll share their links with you.)  The AFK phone – it tells people when you go afk – and brass hoop earrings with balls are from Yasmin (her store is  {incog-neato} on MP:
https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/148675 ) and Zola Zsun (on MP: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/35111 ), respectively.  I went to the Alfa Future People SL 2016 (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/MoonLand/169/182/22) to take the pics – and never got past the futuristic motorcycle.  I remember the original TRON (yes.  I am old. :P) and just loved looking at the glowing motorcycle – and as you might know if you’ve seen prior blog posts, I love motorcycles anyway!  This hair was so perfect for the setting too – I just fell in love with the bangs and how flirty they are!

And last but certainly NOT least, the Prince hairstyle – it’s meant to be for men, but it’s sooooo curly and cute!  Of course, I just had to go back to my house and take pics in my home photo studio, from Abranimations (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Animations/135/101/26 ) and with a really fun prop from Image Essentials (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Parameshvara/144/78/48).  I mean, with the Prince hair, it was all too perfect!  I just adore these two talented people – they give all of us such amazing animations, poses, and more!  And if you are a model, Image Essentials also has photo studios you can use for free – just join the group!  I also wore a JK Styles onesie silk lace-trimmed sleep jumper.  After all, Prince loved lace and silk…and the bedroom…!  He also sang a lot about love.  It was the perfect outfit and setting for this very Prince-like hair! A forelock curl leads to a riot of curls all around the head, shaped above the ears and around the neck to try to bring some order to all these gorgeous curls.  Hair definitely fit for a Prince!

OMG! More JK Styles and Alli & Ali!

Matt hair_001

I’ve got some fantabulous clothing and hair to blog for you from my fave JK Styles and Alli & Ali!  First, above is the men’s hair from Alli & Ali.  It actually doesn’t look bad on me at all – although I’m sure you guys out there would look even better in it!  Brushed back side and longer bangs flipped back and over makes for a sexy hot look!

But to go on…here’s me styling Maxine hair, a cute bob chin-length style that is just adorable!  It frames your face oh so perfectly, with the blunt-cut bangs and cut in chunky bits that adds visual interest.  I paired it with the JK Styles Jayde, a sexy-tough outfit that will certainly attract notice wherever you go!  A corset with tube top frames your figure nicely, and the jeans and belt hang low enough on your hips to be flattering to your hips and butt.  It comes in two styles, black and white, with each style having a hud to change the tube top’s colors and patterns.  The black style has solid colors, the white patterns.  The jeans come in both blue and black.  There’s also jewelry with both styles, a chain necklace and bracelets.  Along with the outfits, there’s also Jayde shoes, a t-strap high heel with strappy toes and either chains in gold or in silver decorating the top of the shoe.  These shoes come in either black or brown.  I modeled all these at the Ivory Tower Library of Primitives, a fantastic place to go to get info on building – or just to see some truly amazing builds!  In this day of mesh, it’s good to remind ourselves of the power of the simple prim.  (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Natoma/210/164/28)

Do you see yourself in these gorgeous styles?  If so, visit these absolutely amazing stores to find these and much more!

A Few of My Favorite Things…

I decided to do a blog about some of my favorite places to shop, other than, of course, JK Styles and Alli & Ali!  I love to shop in a lot of places, and I do mean a LOT of places!  I’m a total shop-a-holic…and although I do shop a lot, I tend to go to the same places over and over.  The places I go have proven their worth to me because they have amazing quality and style…and since I don’t have a ton of Lindens, I want something that will look good, feel right, and last.  So I decided to put together some outfits from a few of my favorite places – and take pictures at a sim I love to visit, Etopia, a place that has a myriad of displays showing how to make our world run in a more ecologically and morally sound way.    (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Etopia%20Island/193/55/23)

This first set consists of Chemistry Ava sweater in Beige and Chemistry hair Taylor in Honey Blond; and LaVian Abel High Heel in orange and American Girl denim shorts.  I adore both of these fashion designers – they have affordable and chic mesh clothing and hair.  Just too amazing!  The pose I’m using is AP Cali Lily 6.

My second set of a few of my favorite things is Analog Dog Topaz hair in black, Chop Zuey Tiger Totem jewelry set, and Bax Foxy Boots in wood.  Gorgeous!  I love the ethnic look and the fact that I look really amazing in all this!  Pose is PoSeSiOn low price 2.

Another set is this gorgeous look, with Argrace Konomi hair in black and Finesmith  Matbuja Copper jewelry, Stentorian skirt in nutral, and Girlstalk top in burgundy.  If I’m looking for an outfit to wow a lot of people, these are my go-to guys!  Pose is PWA gift 005.

This outfit so rocks!  The open blouse and pants, silky and smooth, are from ghee; the shoes are N-Core Karen in black, and the jewelry is Chop Zuey’s Too Much Sanity set.  I simply adore the color and look of the pants and top, and the Chop Zuey jewelry just so goes with it!  I’m also wearing Truth Chantelle Black and Pink Streaked; the pose I used was Wet Cat Fabala 1.

The last outfit for today consists of Purple Moon Zoe in Copper, Glint Gold Opal and Pearls jewelry set, Shay La La Alisa Peeptoe High Heels with hud, and Prism Kelsey by Journey with fabric hud.  Such a fun outfit!  I love how it looks – sophisticated and yet playful.  Pose used is AP AM front 1.

These aren’t all the places I love to shop…goodness, that could take DAYS to record!  But it is a great indicator of the clothes, shoes, jewelry and hairs I love to wear.  Quality, style and able to be worn with mesh bodies…these designers rock!!

(I’ll do more of my favorite places in other postings – so stay tuned!)

JK Styles and Alli & Ali hairs!

I have just started blogging for one of my FAVE hairstylists, Alli & Ali!  The amount of hairs they have is staggering, the medley of colors even more amazing!  You can find flexi hairs, mesh hairs, fantasy hairs, any style or color your heart desires!  I also blog for JK Styles, as you know, and  JK Styles offers a variety of styles  – everything from the most casual to the most formal.  Since I blog for both of these amazing stores, I figured…let’s put these two amazing stores’ offerings together and see what magic comes from that combo!

I decided to use my new home as the backdrop for this photoshoot…I love to get out and meet people, but oh, it is so wonderful to go home and cuddle up with my babies!

But first, the outside of my place…I have this thing for bonfires, don’t ask me why, but there is something about fire I love.  So of course, I have two bonfire sets at my place…go figure, right?  Here’s my first one, with me modeling one of the hairs from the amazing May sale at Alli & Ali, Zafrina, a sidesweep updo that cascades down the shoulder sooooo sexily, available in blondes tipped, ombre, and pastel shades, almost 20 different color mixes in each box!.  I paired this with JK Styles’ Maryah, a tuxedo-style wrap top with white denim shorts, in Ojai.  As you can see, the hud menu on the top offers different colors – eight, to be specific.  The delicately patterned silk top is decadent against your skin!

My other campfire setting!  This time I’m wearing Skye from Alli & Ali, a gorgeous updo with delicate tendrils snaking out and flowers scattered throughout, in the same color choices as Zafrina – and just as sexy!  I’m also wearing JK Styles’ Maryah in prints – patterns changing with the click of a hud!  And oh are they lovely…!

I also have a cuddle nook on my deck, for when friends come over and hang out – but it’s also fun for just me!  I’m wearing Almeda, an updo secured by a braid, with wispy tendrils tickling the neck and framing the face, along with the bangs.  It has the same selection of colors as Zafrina and Skye.  The outfit is JK Styles’ Maryah in Solids – and you can really see how silky and sexy it is!

Now for the inside of my house…here you can see the boat I sail on, my ocean baby!  I looooove sailing, it’s just so peaceful.  I’m wearing Giana, another fantabulous hair from Alli & Ali, upswept rolled hair in a semi-40’s style, available in the same tipped blonde, ombre and pastels, but this time paired with JK Styles’ Twyla, a beautiful dress with a twist – a knotted hem on the left side!  It comes in three versions; this is version one, with dots.  Featuring a black bodice and diagonal side panel, the rest of the dress is changeable via hud.  I’m also wearing the gift stockings that JK Styles is offering at the Thrift Shop, Starlet Hi-Sox, stockings that can be changed among solid black, solid white, black stars and white stars; I’m wearing the black stars look:

And here I am in my living room, looking out the window – I just love the purity of white and use it as much as I can in my decor.  I’m wearing Jeanelle from Alli & Ali, a beautiful updo in the tipped blonde, ombre and pastel options, and JK Styles’ Twyla version 3, patterns.  It still has the twisted knot hem, but the bodice and skirt panel are different, thanks to a color-changing hud:

There’s also two styles on the action wall at Alli & Ali, Effie and Keira hair: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Wonderland%20Beach/154/143/24.  (Make sure you wear your group tag to get a 50% discount!)  Below, I’m wearing Effie in Fire Red and Silver Blonde; the flower in the hair is hud-driven so you can match it to your outfit – or make it invisible, if you like!  The dress is JK Styles’ Twyla, in solids; the bodice is black and the skirt panel changes color by hud; and in patterns again.  Silky-sexy comfort!

Below, I’m featuring Keira hair, in Cinnamon and Ash Blonde, with the Twyla v3 dress and Starlet Hi-Sox.  I think this lovely updo just adds to the sexiness and allure of this outfit…don’t you?  And you can see three of my babies in the pics…ornery darlings!

Like what you see?  You can find these styles at Alli & Ali’s mainstore and the action wall; JK Styles’ outfits can be found at the Thrift Store for a limited time…so hurry!

JK Styles at the Garage Fair!

Yes, I’m back again with four more gorgeous styles – two boots and two outfits – that will take you all over the grid in sexy, adorable comfort.  I should know – I did the Runway Perfect Hunt while wearing them!

First is Moira v1, with boyfriend jeans in either worn blue or grey, with a ruffled cotton crop top in six beautiful pastel colors.  I paired it with the Kyra boots in black leather…and oh did I feel sexy and confident going all around trying to find those darn objects for the hunt!

The next day, I wore Moira v2, with the same selection of boyfriend jeans and the same ruffled sexy top – but this time in brighter jewel tones!  I paired this look with the Kyra boots in denim blue and went out to hunt up a storm!
