To much to many people’s surprise, I really do not like promoting myself. It’s a Midwestern thing—don’t make noise, don’t be too full of yourself, don’t put yourself over others. But I have been honored to be nominated once again for the Avi Choice Awards, so for this one blog entry I am going to ask you to vote for my blog, “A Passion for Virtual Fashion,” as Favorite Fashion Blog and for me, “Harper Beresford,” as Favorite Fashion Blogger.

Vote for Me!

It’s quite easy to do. Go to the Avi Choice Awards here and here (click on these links and they will take you right there). Then just click in the little radio buttons where I have highlighted and click vote. Could it be easier?

Then you can scroll back and check the other polls. There are some wonderful people represented here and some wonderful blogs and bloggers. I am esteemed to be in their company.

OK with that uncomfortable task done, let me tell you about what I am wearing. LacunaInc is participating in My Attic with the theme of “How to Marry a Millionaire.” She came in with this gorgeously textured dress, lace overlaying a satin, in several colors and priced so inexpensively, your millionaire could get you the fatpack and still walk away with change. Senzati0n Domenitzo is also participating with these sexy pumps which are pure class.

I am still beguiled by the skin that Mochi Milena has made for androgynous looks. As a woman’s skin, it’s lovely and provides a beautiful palette for makeup, so I chose a liner from Constance Daehlie and lips from Zxxrysa Magic, which I have been wearing like mad it seems lately. My hair is a gorgeous side-swept look from Shylah Honey for N21 that comes with all the great textures Damselfly offers.

Plus Je T’embrasse

Plus je t’embrasse, plus j’aime t’embrasser
Plus je t’enlace, plus j’aime t’enlacer
Le temps qui passe ne peut rien y changer
Mon coeur bat quand tu t’en vas
Mais tout va bien quand tu reviens car
Plus je t’embrasse, plus j’aime t’embrasser
Je ne peux m’en passer
J’en ai tellement envie que j’oublie tout dans la vie
C’est sans cesse que j’aime t’embrasser
Plus je t’embrasse, plus j’aime t’embrasser
Plus je t’enlace, plus j’aime t’enlacer

Plus Je T’embrasse

My friend just got back from a week plus in Paris. It was a wonderful visit, a chance to wander around one of his favorite cities, revisit his French, and enjoy the colors and cuisines. At one point, he told me, he looked at the cost of flats in Paris. He really wanted to stay. I understand that feeling. I had done the same the last time I was there.

He pointed out to me that two young ladies who helped him with some work he was doing there were typically Parisian—they wore their clothes with a casual elegance that only Parisian girls manage. I hope I get a measure of that elegance with this look. Start with a coat from Erratic Rain, beautifully rendered in 100% original mesh with a great texture change hud for the buttons and sleeves and available in 10 colors.

I switched the sleeves to white so I could wear it with this darling asymmetric skirt from Areve, who is having a sale at her new location. This skirt comes in 5 colors on a handy HUD and in you can get four different versions. I happened to pick up several things.

Terrie Dreadlow is also having a sale in honor of her 6th rez day and I got these darling t-straps meant for Slink feet but also fit Belleza mesh body feet with minor adjustment. The shoes have a great color change HUD and are also modifiable (so I could darken the red to match). At 66L, these shoes were a STEAL.

Umazuma Metaluna has released the bare Hazel skins and I gladly donned one with a great lipstick from Zxxrysa Magic, free in the Dirty Turkey Hunt. Long wavy locks from Ms. Queue Marlowe give the final touch.
