Shaken, Not Stirred

1 Dry Martini

I had a lot of things planned for my day in Second Life. I needed to find a hat for an outfit I’m putting together, I needed to take photos for a blog challenge later this week, and I wanted to grab some demos of the new t-shirts out from Erratic. I had the best of intentions, and actually found a hat (hugs to my lil Cao for steering me in the right direction)! But that’s when things started to unravel…

You see, the hat didn’t really work with the hair I had planned to wear. And although I have an obscene amount of hair, I couldn’t find a style to match. So, off I went in search of something that did work. I found myself at Vanity Hair, a place I don’t usually go, but I was looking for a rather high-fashion style and I thought that would be a good place to start.

I didn’t find what I was looking for, but I found…a Dry Martini. Yep, that’s the name of the hairstyle. Not my usual style, but there was just something about it – the sleek, pulled up sides, the full top and the sweet wrap of the hair to secure the ponytail. I had to have it.

And then, of course, I had to take photos.

I still don’t have a hairstyle to wear with the outfit I’m putting together, I really don’t know what I’m going to do for my challenge photo, and I forgot to grab the demos. Sighs…but I have kick-ass hair and no hangover…guaranteed!

      I did! I found the perfect hat! Um…but I still need hair lol I got sidetracked again and didn’t get to go shopping for it 😦 I may give up on this whole “styling” thing. I’m better at just wearing clothes 😀

    as an aside…… LaGyo has an amazing little blue hat. Not sure its navy though, may be kinda purplish blue, its been a while since I wore it. 😀

      I found a hat at Lode that was mod. I was able to tint the highlight bits perfectly!

Talk to me! (please? )
