Rehab

Harper: I am going out of town this weekend for vacation and won’t have Internet.
John Z: That’s not vacation; that’s rehab.

I *will* be out of town this weekend because I will be enjoying the natural beauties of the upper Midwest, visiting roadside stands, breathing in the fresh air, and going absolutely berzerk without Internet access. No worries—you’ll be getting my blogs fresh every day on time.

Today’s look starts with Dakota Buck and beanster Potato, two casual pieces perfect for vacation days. I love the pull-on leggings from beanster—they look horribly casual in RL but perfect in SL because we have the bodies to wear them. The top, which includes a beaded yoke, is a lovely piece with well-drawn wrinkles and shadows.

The skin is a new one from Mallory Cowen, a fresh-faced woman of color. I am glad to see Mallory is concentrating on the different colors and styles that beautiful women can come. This skin, made for a more Asian looking avatar, has a rich hue and luscious make up. This cute hair is from Kavar Cleanslate and blessedly modifiable so I could darken it slightly.

My boots come from the gacha at Marea Kirax’s store. In this case, I have jammed all my quarters into the machine in order to shake out boots in the colors I want. This only took—3 tries—and friends got my repeats. I love the crocheted texture, the great shape around the ankles and the brown suede on the feet. Funky and comfy and fun.

Trinket

I am a victim to cute things, pieces of jewelry, trinkets. I styled this WHOLE LOOK around the necklace around my neck.

Trinket

Let’s dispense with the trinket. I got this darling little necklace and the matching bangles at a little out-of-the-way place courtesy of a friendly tip. Inexpensive and cute, I just like what Spinnetje Jewell has crafted.

That being said, I wanted to build on the reds and blacks so I started with a jewelry-displaying top from Sysy Chapman, part of a larger fat pack. With its well crafted sheen, clean edges, and sexy cut, it’s very typical of Sysy’s great work.

The skirt is a shortie from LeeZu Baxter she recently released. LeeZu, for all her extravagant textures and complicated couture, shows she has the chops to make an eensy mainstream skirt too.

Boots are from one of those random dispenser things, this one located at “anuenue. I love these boots that Marea Kirax made and I think I must have bought at least 10 pairs trying to get red (which I never got). They are, however, transferable. Go try your luck and send your friends your doubles.

Trinket

Nails are another trinket, and I got these beauties from Candy Nail for the Hunting 9 hunt, which is quite rewarding but also exasperating. I am not a big hunt fan, but this was only 9 items and at great content makers. I ended up purchasing at almost all of them because something pretty inevitably caught my eye.

The hair I love. Truth Hawks just came back with this great style, which will find its way on my head over and over. I love the textures, the shape and most importantly, the streaks, which are menu controlled. I keep putting the hair on and changing the streak colors. Give me a streak over a bow any day!
