My Favorite Hair Fair Bandanas (plus a few I made)

Once a year, us non-creators are challenged to toss our bandanas in the ring along with other creators such as Lelutka, TuttiFruti, MiaMai and others. For me, it’s always a fresh reminder of why I am not a creator, but I manage to pull something out my hat (or bandana).

Zaara Is Always Beautiful

140722_004

I dropped by Zaara to pick up some shoes she had out for the 21 Shoe event on the 21st and, of course, ended up buying so much more. That’s how these events are supposed to work, so I can’t complain.  The highlight for me was this Runa knotted dress. I wore while DJ’ing on Monday night and folks actually teleported to Zaara picked up the dress and came back to the club wearing it.  That’s how gorgeous it is.

Hair Fair Long Hair Part One

A few days ago there was a discussion of whether all the iterations of long hair have already been made. In other words, the “there is nothing new under the sun” argument that has been around for millennia. Well, take a look, and see if you think they are all the same.

You know, they say there are only 7 plots – but there are millions of stories.

The Real Reason for Braided Hair

0718_002

My sisters and I know the real reason for braided hair. It’s not to look pretty. It’s to keep your hair neat and untangled. My hair would snarl if you looked at it wrong, so Mom would French braid it. I remember when my parents sent me to spend a week with their friends in Sioux City who were as close to grandparents as I had. When Mom was done braiding it, my skin was stretched taut and I am sure I had a mini-facelift. Under strict orders, I left the braids in while bathing and showering, washing them without unbraiding them – and sure enough, they stayed in place for the entire week. She had no time for loose, casual braids like this lovely one from Anya Ohmai for Hair Fair. A braid that did not ache for a few hours was unworthy of the name.

It All Comes Together at Relay Weekend

rfl-2014

There have been Relay for Life fundraising events going on for several months now and they will all come together in the annual culmination of Relay season with Relay Weekend. Relay Weekend kicks off with an Opening Ceremony at 10 A.M. SLT on the 19th and continues for 24 hours as folks walk the 40 sim track. The walk continues for 24 hours because cancer never sleeps and neither can the efforts to prevent, treat and cure cancer.

Grace Loudon who brilliantly organized the Fashion For Life builds created this build while also heading the team of builders and build organizers for the forty sims for this weekend. With bolts of fabric, dressmaker forms, scissors, thread and other sewing notions, this build emphasizes the FASHION in Fashion For Life.  Continue reading

Safari Style

0713_004

This month’s theme for Collabor88 is Safari and Baiastice’s offerings are stylishly on point – taking inspiration from African fabrics and textures and colors but making something new  with it. Her skirts and tops are irresistible and should be kept as great mix and match pieces.  The top in particular will be a great one for layering as it skims close to the body.
