A Tourist at Home

I am so ready for a vacation. I have been running the website over at SL11B, posting the schedules and slurls and blog posts and then running around and enjoying the sights, being a tourist at home, as it were. I found the Oceania parcel that Harlequin Rhode and Nephelle Lanate built, which was a perfect site for showing off this amazingly glamorous mesh bathing suit from Zaara Kohime that she is featuring at Summerfest. In Zaara’s inimitable style, the suit is gathered in the middle in a vintage styling made modern and the silhouette, a mesh made by Zaara, is sexy but not crass. Zaara has also made beautiful bejeweled sandals with an Indian influence to be worn with Slink flat feet.

Belle Roussel is celebrating the summer as well with this luxe jewelry set she is offering at the Summer Fashion Festival. With Belle’s characteristic animated gems to represent light sparkling off the facets and her multiple attachments to allow versatility in styling, the pieces make my simple swimsuit more elegant. I am keeping the sun off with a hat by Vivienne Darcy at the Art in Hats even Quan Lavender organized to benefit Feed a Smile. The pairing of hats with photos was ingenious though I found even better was the idea a few designers had of being inspired by RL art, as they do at my museum’s Art in Bloom each year. A portion of each sale of a hat helps feed a child in Kenya so while you enjoy wearable art, you are also giving a child nourishment.

My hair, which I love, is one of the newest from Shylah Honey and Tommy Fairplay. I really like the blonde texture but even more, I love how they made the mesh fall across the front in tendrils as real life hair does. It’s a very subtle difference from other mesh hair but I noticed it right away. Aida Ewing is offering this luminous skin at creation.jp and it’s lovely with a few innovative makeups for different sorts of looks, but I wore this one with its luscious pink lips and blush.
