Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
I know! I Know! I’m a day late and I’m sorry for those (one or two) that have been eagerly waiting for this week’s Red Solo Cup inspiration! This week was just soooooooooooooooooooooooo long. So when yesterday came, the only thing that was on my mind was Footloose! I think I listened to the song about a million times (ok maybe not a MILLION but a bunch) and I watched the end of Footloose (the 2011 version because it’s the only one on Netflix) a couple times because it’s just awesome and makes you feel like dancing! So if you haven’t figured it out yet, this week’s inspiration is FOOTLOOSE! I channeled my inner Kevin Bacon with my grey sweater, bleached jeans, and white hightops to get my dance on. I REALLY, REALLY can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
There are a few events going on in SL at the moment (aren’t there always?) but this weekend, the fifth Fantasy Faire opens. Personally, I’ve never been but I hear it’s quite amazing, especially if you are into fantasy wear. Plus, it’s a Relay For Life event so it’s for a good cause too! Pin Me Down will be one of the vendors at the faire (sharing a stall with SAKIDE this year, so you can find them on the Lotus Valley Dream sim) with some exclusive makeups. The Warrior comes in a faded black, and faded white which is tintable you can make it any colour you want. Myst comes in six different layers so you wear it how you want. Because this is a RFL event, 100% of the purchase price will go to donations. Another Warrior makeup will be a hunt prize that goes on for the duration of the Faire.
Speaking of fairs, Kawaii Fair has already started and runs until the 26th (or 28th? Both dates are listed on the blog so I’m not sure). Kawaii is full of
nauseously adorably cute everything! Most of it isn’t my style but had to pick up this super cute Panda Tank Top from (R E D). It’s a panda! How can you not want it?!
Oh, one last thing, this week’s Red Solo Cup challenge is Austin Powers / 60’s British Invasion! I got inspired because someone on plurk mentioned that with LeLutka‘s Bouffant hair, I looked like a fembot from Austin Powers. So originally I wanted to take a picture with a bunch of girls, all with the same lingerie and hair but because of various issues, it ended up just being Aevalah and I. I think we would be some pretty damn hot fembots.
I can’t wait to see all your submissions in the Flickr group because I think this will be a real fun theme for everyone!!
I probably should have mentioned this over the weekend but Apple May Designs new mesh dress September was available for 75L. Now it’s regular price. Yeah….sorry about that. It’s available in three “muted” colours (taupe, pink, and sky) and comes with a cute matching, mesh collar.
LeLutka also has some recently released hair. Usually I don’t go for the big “lion mane” like hair but I couldn’t resist picking up Bouffant. Also included is a separate pearl tiara attachment that adds a little something something to the style. Bouffant is definitely an attention grabbing and versatile hairstyle.
Don’t you just love those lazy days? The ones where you don’t really have to get dressed, you can just bum around all day? Well, Mon Tissu just came out with the new Oversized Shirt perfect for those leisurely days. I was hoping for more colour options but there are enough to make it hard to choose just one. I went with yellow because I’m on a colour kick lately. I’ve noticed most of my newish clothing is either pink or a bland colour like beige or grey so I need to add a little something something every once in a while. I’ve paired it up with Maitreya‘s Stefani pants ’cause come on, nothing says lazy like sweat pants.
Tee*fy released the super cute Skyla Ruffle Sleeve Tank which is perfect for the upcoming summer season! And it goes great with their Lovisa Ruffle Mini Skirt that is now available at Collabor88. Erratic also just released some great mesh owl bracelets. They come in 4 “metals” (gold, silver, bronze and pinkgold). Owls are so trendy right now so you know, go be trendy!
