Fri.day Blows Me Away

Another short post, got too much going on right now, but I will be back in full force soon enough!

There are some stores which always bring their A-game and release high quality items. For me, fri.day is just one of those stores that makes me want every new item as soon as it comes out. Luckily for me, I usually get my hands on some of them. Anyway, a couple of days ago fri.day put out 2 new summery halter shirts with bow ties in the back and sculpted, billowy hems. On the left we have the Melody.Halter and on the right there is the Poet.Halter. Each one comes on all layers in 8 colors. You can buy a single one for L$ 90 or you can get the fatpack for L$ 500.

Black and White

I had thrown part of this outfit together the other day, but when I got the new Kinsey hair from Exile by Kavar Cleanslate, it all seemed to come together. I love the spunky pigtails, I can see it working for me in a bunch of situations. You can get the hair in 7 color packs at L$ 250 each or get all 48 colors (if I counted right) for L$ 1000.

You might also notice that I mixed wearing silver and gold accessories, which, regardless of what anyone says, is cool in my book. Oh, and I’m wearing the limited edition Gina skin by Tuli at The Dressing Room that is only available until the end of today.

Sorry this is so short, but I’ve got so much stuff going on right now!

Beautiful Brande

Summer is pretty much here now and with summer comes the inevitable new hair style for the warmer weather. Fri.day has released 2 new hairstyles, Brande and Brande.2. Both are perfect for days at the beach, outdoor shopping or hitting the hottest club.  Like with all Fri.day hair, there are 5 color packs as well as the fatpack of all the 20 colors. Right now there is a Summer Sale going on at the mainstore where are single items are L$ 50, L$ 75 or L$ 100 and single poses are L$ 25. With this going on, you can grab the new hairstyles at a reduced price as well, L$ 75 for a color pack or L$ 300 for the fatpack. The sale ends June 12, 2010 so you only have a few days left…try the demos and grab the ones you like at this fabulous price while you can!

Spring-time Dresses

I am a big fan of wearing no pants, I much prefer the feminine and flirty style of a dress. More often than not, you’ll catch me in one, especially as the weather heats up and the colors get brighter. Kunglers released 2 new styles of dresses which fit the bill perfectly. On the left is Jan and on the right is Luanna.

Jan comes in this color, Malachite, as well as a black/red and pale blue/silver version. The tops are sheer and come on 2 layers so when you wear multiple layers, it shows less underneath. The most amazing part of this outfit is the skirt, I absolutely love it! You can pick up the Jan dresses for L$ 399 each.

Luanna is a more casual dress, but can be accessorized for a night look as well. It has a retro feel to it, with corset-like details, high waist, and flouncy skirt. It also comes in an aqua and a pink version. These three are available for L$ 299 each.

Accessorize Your Home

Accessories for the home are just as important as accessories for yourself, especially if your home is more than just a place to stand around and change clothes.

This is a bulletin board from Croire by Emily Kaestner. For L$ 125 you get a really nice customizable bulletin board; the wood changes to 7 textures, the cork changes to 5 textures, as well as the thumbtacks being color-change when you click on them. Best of all, you can drop your own pictures into the center parts of the Polaroids. I love the cute details of the notes and coupons. Croire is a small shop but it has adorable stuff from the look around I had and good prices, so if you’re looking to add some snazzle to your home, stop in at Croire and check it out!

Feeling Sunny

The Black & Blue Fair is just around the corner, which begins June 4, 2010 and runs until July 3, 2010. The fair features special items that are available there and only there, until the fair is over. Besides that, however, the purpose of the fair is to educate visitors about mental health issues, which many Second Life© residents deal with in their real lives. Since the fair isn’t open yet I can’t give you the landmark, but you can join the in-world group “The Black & Blue Fair” (founder Keira Seerose) to keep up to date and get the notice as soon as it is open to the public. I got a sneak peek and picked up these gorgeous shoes from Orange Creations, which come with a great HUD and a very informative notecard on how to tint the skin on the sculpted feet.

I thought pairing them with a bright and fun outfit was a way to express how I’m feeling right now, I have gone through my share of ups and downs, but I’m lucky to be in a really good place in my real life and that makes the other life better too.
