Hair Fair Short Hair

I decided to sort the hair by style and show them to you in groups of short, long, updos and so on. This first post shows you some of the short hair at Hair Fair. I actually got several more short hair styles but they were men’s styles and I thought I would rather show you that as a group. Some of these I tinted to get closer to the red I prefer.

Don't Fence Me In

I have loved horses since I was a child with my first Shetland. I don’t completely believe in Shetlands for children. Yes, they’re small, but they are ornery. Morgans are much better tempered and don’t love to bite nearly so much. Of course, SL® horses like this appie don’t bite at all. In fact, if you fall of a SL horse, your computer needs fixing. My appaloosa comes with an English saddle so although I don’t always put on jodhpurs, I do like to dress appropriately. I thought this lovely outfit from DE Designs with a very martial cut and flair suited the occasion and the rich scarlet of the jacket made me think of English riders riding to the hounds — not that I would do that. Especially since I met a perfectly delightful black wolf named Tabitha while I was out riding at Grendel’s Children.

If you think you might like riding, I recommend going to McLean’s Horse Farm where you can get a demo horse to ride. Then (hush, I probably should not tell you this) just jump the fence and follow the railroad tracks. You can follow them through several sims. When you come to the terminus, a short fly (yes, the horses fly) will take you to another sim and the Linden Road. You can ride for hours, enjoying the scenery as you traverse dozens of sims.  There are other horse farms, but none oter that I know of with access to the Linden Road. Just don’t dismount or you will have to go back to the start. I am sure, though, you will enjoy it enough to go back to McLean’s to get your own horse that you can ride anywhere. Fair warning though, to get on the horse, you have to wear it and if your wearing a skirt, it will come off and embarrass you.

Vintage Flowers

By Cajsa Lilliehook

I love orange, i love flowers and I love that soft retro blue – so how could I not love this dress? Ingenue specializes in vintage clothing and creatively uses some gorgeous retro prints. This dress has that lovely soft retro blue – like those old melmac plates my parents used for camping trips. I love that blue. It’s possible that if spiders were that color blue, I might even like spiders. 

I put it together with wonderful stone earrings, necklace and bracelet from Swallowtail. If you love big jewelry with natural stones, simple and organic jewelry, Swallowtail is a must. They also have adorable felt dresses unlike anywhere else. Besides, it’s so much fun to shop there. Be sure to give yourself time to wander out and see all the animals. I added the lovely Periquita shoes that always suit a retro dress. 

There are more photos on my flickr. Style notes after the jump. Continue reading
