Hair Today Gone Tomorrow #45

Hey my beautiful people! So lets get right into it. This hair is EVERYTHING!!! I stopped by Hair O Logy’s monthly event for the very first time looking for a particular hair I saw on my Facebook timeline and I ran into this beauty from enVogue. This hair is everything you would ever want in a bob guys. I’m so in love with Gisselle that I damn near shed a tear over her (seriously). As you can see, I’m still on my redhead kick but I switched it up a bit and opted for a red ombre. Honey…..this wig is slayed to tha gawds! It’s just too fierce for words. Anywho, I picked up one other style from Hair O Logy and to be honest, I really wasn’t impressed with the selections that were available for purchase 😦 but I’m sure next month will be much better. Now this cute lil dress I picked up from Majesty is bomb.com for real.

Funny story though,  I was at the Kustom 9 sim trying to get a sneak peek at everything before the sale starts and I noticed that Majesty as a satellite store on the sim so I go in and find that the dress comes in teal. I also picked up a really cute black stole. Fast-forward….. So I’m checking Majesty’s landmark to make sure it is correct for the blog and I tp to The Factory instead. The Factory is owned by the Majesty creator along with a partner. Lo and behold everything in the store is 50L!!! So I’m shopping away like a mad woman and buying everything in sight. I turn the corner and what do I see? I see my skater dress that I just paid 199L for on sale for only 50L LOL! I won’t lie….I felt a lil salty about the situation but I racked up on so much stuff in that store I couldn’t even stay mad. Now this is a going out of business sale so I would highly suggest stopping by The Factory immediately because I do not know when this sale will end and I would also suggest just picking up the skater dress from there since you will save on lindens.

A side note, I mentioned earlier that I also purchased a super cute stole from Majesty but it did not fit me well at all. And to be honest, I’m not 100% sure if a demo was available or not…..I just purchased without any thought since it was so fly. I would highly recommend you trying the demo if available because it’s a no modify item and it does not come with a resizer so purchase at your own risk.

Picture Perfect #42

Hey loves! I’m back with another look that I am sooooo in love with. Typically, I don’t shop at discount stores in SL because I felt like everyone would be rocking the same outfit around the grid but I broke my own rule and decided to do a little retail therapy at the fi*Friday event and I’m very glad I did! You definitely can’t beat the prices where everything is for sale for L$55. I also steered clear from these types of discount events because I figured most of the items would be of poor quality but I was pleasantly surprised (and impressed) by some of the items I saw and purchased. I know you know I killed my virtual pocket book right? Anywho, I picked up this cute little two piece set from L’Armoire and I’m really digging it. The quality of the craftsmanship is decent with no major flaws except a slight issue with the cutout skirt panel aligning with the skirt layer but you can’t really fault the designer for that. And for only L$55 for the set, it’s still a great buy in my book. This is a fun skirt set and I wanted to add an element of bad-assness (I made that word up) so I added a tattoo for more of the bad girl image I was going for.

Oh, and how could I forget….I was surfing around on marketplace and found these cool lip piercings from PUNCH that can be customized. You have the option to show 1, 2 or 3 piercings, remove the shadows, brighten the metals and there are about 12 metal options to choose from. The entire set is hud driven which is awesome and I’m not going to spoil it by telling you the price. You’ll have to hit the link below to find out for yourself. But I will say this….you’ll be very pleased and you’ll definitely get your monies worth. I feel like Rihanna would totally rock this fit in RL LOL. What do you guys think?

She Earned It

Hello loves! So yesterday, was the grand opening of Oro and I was feeling a little bit inspired by Bollywood for some odd reason and wanted an outfit to semi reflect that style.  And with me being the person I am, I was late and had to hurry to put an outfit together. Your girl has been working on a very strict SL budget this week so I had to make due with what I had and dig deep into my inventory to pull off my vision and I must say that my inventory is the real MVP because I was very pleased with what I came up with. Of course I couldn’t attend an Oro grand opening without rocking something from the store, so I opted for this really cute cutout halter top in the color Orange Juice and I paired it with a 100% mesh skirt from Tetra. Now loves, I’m going to be very honest with you guys as I do always. I love this skirt (especially the crease detailing and that live olive color) but it was very difficult for me to deal with as far as fitting my body. My avi is pretty petite (I usually wear mesh in either a size S or XS) and I STILL had to alter my shape to fit the skirt properly AND use a static pose the entire time at the party in order to avoid body parts sticking through the skirt. This could definitely be a negative for a person that wouldn’t consider altering their shape but if you don’t mind tweaking your shape (anything for fashion!), I would highly recommend purchasing this skirt.

So….this You’re Cool hair from Milk (now known as Besom) seems to be in hot demand but unbeknownst to me, it’s not available inworld anymore. I didn’t realize this until I was contacted by quite a few people who really want this hair. I ended up leaving a notecard with the creator inquiring about possibly bringing this hair back. I haven’t heard back from her yet but once I do, I will update this post and also my facebook with her response. In the meantime, you can try Besom’s Piled Up Bun as an alternative. The Piled Up Bun (shown below) will still work well with Gaja‘s baby hairbase.
