Oh, So French

Bonsoir et ooh la la, mes amis! Despite three years of high school French, that is about all you will get from me in the way of français. The title was inspired by the Paris lingerie by Salt & Pepper for the July round of Mesh Body Addicts. This lingerie has a very nostalgic feel and is uber sexy, yet demure. The tight ponytail from TETRA out of the July Luxe Box works beautifully with the look and feel and the Orangery by Scarlet Creative, also from Luxe Box, is the ideal setting.

There was a lot more to the setting of this photo, but as is so often the case, it was lost on the cutting room floor. Had I just plopped down the build, shoved in the bench and flounced onto it, I would have gotten done a lot more quickly. But then I wouldn’t have had the luxury of feeling like a French girl for an afternoon.

C’est tellement français

Hair Fair 2017 · iheartslfeed · The Liaison Collaborative

No Disguise For Tears

I have been doing quite a few portraits lately, mainly to highlight styles from Hair Fair. I am not an expert at head shots, but this is another one I have done in the last couple of weeks. When an event that benefits a wonderful charity (Wigs for Kids) rolls around, I think it’s my responsibility to truly make that product the focus of my work.

The hair I am wearing is called TOZASHI from ayame ame, one of several new-to-me designers I love from Hair Fair 2017. The braid which covers one eye is optional via HUD. The sleek bob is a classic, and will work with any more conservative look while adding the braid gives you an edgier look. I adore styles that give you a choice with the simple click of a button.

I am once again featuring makeup from Zibska at the July round of The Liaison Collaborative. While I don’t normally wear bright-coloured makeup, these palettes just work for me. That makes me happy.

No disguise for tears. No substitute for happiness.

Fairy Floss Unicorn

They say you should wear bright, cheerful colours on days you are feeling less than 100%. Today is Monday, so I’m bringing out the vivid hues to combat the work-week blues!

The Unicorn HUD from NO.MATCH is simply brilliant and the hair I am wearing is now available at The Liaison Collaborative. It is a fabulous style that works beautifully with the colourful textures. Also available at TLC are the eye shadow and lipstick from Zibska. They are complementary and sold separately. Do check the compatibility of the appliers; they are made for different mesh heads, but there is an Omega version of both.

Love my swimsuit? So do I! I love it so much I ended up naked in the middle of FaMESHed on opening day for it! What? How? Why? You ask? Fun story…

As you will be aware, if you manage to squeeze into FaMESHed on opening day, it is jam packed to the rafters. That was the case when I arrived. I grabbed the demo, but since getting back in if I left to try on demos (as I often do) was highly unlikely, I chose to try the demo at the event. Now, this suit comes with three textures per pack, and there are around 12 base colours available, so those are a lot of choices to be made. And of course, since it was so busy, the sim was lagging horribly. I did the right thing by putting on the swimsuit, waiting for it to rez then taking off my other clothes. I was happily switching through the textures very slowly (again, thank you, Lag Monster), trying to decide which colour pack to buy. I was trying on for probably 15 minutes when I thought to myself, “Oh, this is the actual suit; there are no DEMO tags or print on the textures…hmmm.” No sooner than the thought flashed across my brain, there was a swirl around me and a message that the demo time had expired. And POOF! I’m naked in the dead centre of FaMESHed!

My first thought was to TP out. I quickly discarded that idea because FaMESHed…opening day. I hit my Maitreya HUD to attempt alphaing out my body, but it, too, was slow to react. While waiting for the bloody thing to respond, I dived into my inventory to slap on the first bit of clothing I could find, then dashed behind the booths. By the time I was hidden away, I was nothing but a floating head and shoes wearing a very brief dress, huddled in the bushes.

I bought the teal. And went on to try a few other demos. Shopping from behind the scenes isn’t a bad way to do things. I might just make that my MO while shopping busy events from now on.

Oh…and I’ll have a saved outfit handy. Maybe even dressing as a fairy floss unicorn.
