TOSL 53: Red, White and Blue

This weekend is a hectic one. Not only did Hair Fair open today – so did SL Designers Remix. And then of course you have all the normal weeklies – one of these of course being TOSL.

Since Monday is the 4th of July, the theme for TOSL this week is Red, White and Blue. Now, for all of us non-Americans, this theme might not sound too exciting. However, there are some really great items again this week – as always. There are a beach lounger (from Tranquility Way Station Designs), a Trellis set (from Dreamscapes Art Gallery) and then of course there’s clothes and accessories.

What I’m wearing:

  • Dress: Spot Dress – Tissu (zxxrysa magic) for .::PiCHi::. (TOSL 53 item)
  • Shoes: Country Wedges – Guu Nishi for HOC Industries
  • Bangles: Box Bangle (Red White & Blue) – Baby Monkey Shoes (TOSL 53 item)

  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Ikon Innovia for FASHISM
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Bodyshape 1 (Avie) – Emilia Redgrave for REDGRAVE (modified by me)

Prop: *Red Trellis* Set – Carlotta Ceawlin for Dreamscapes Art Gallery (TOSL 53 item)

Pose: Pin up pose pack – Elissiana Arabello for Priceless Poses (TOSL 53 item)

Again, this week, TOSL has a Designer of the Week. This week, it’s Alexohol – which is fitting here at Independence Day time as well as here just shortly after TOSL’s first birthday since the designer of Alexohol Fashions, ALexandraM Guisse, one of the owners of TOSL. Remember – because of this, Alexohol has two items out this week.

Alex has been designing clothes for a little over 2 years now in SL. FUn and flirty apparel for your every look in SL the line ranges from skirts and tops, jeans to bikinis, beachwear and much much more! Alex is a senior nursing major at THE Ohio State University (she’ll yell at me if I don’t put THE in caps). She’s an avid reader, excellent cook and momma to Zooms, her mutt. Her right hand is Kylie Krell, who helps her run Alexohol and Taste of SL!!! Stop by Alexohol anytime and say hello!

 

Hair Fair 2011

So this is it – Hair Fair 2011 opens today and I got a chance to go yesterday and now I want to share some of what I found.

Hair Fair 2011 consists of 4 sims. It’s keept in a beach theme with small huts, a nice boardwalk etc.

I feel like I’ve blogged a lot of Exile and Truth recently so I’m looking forward to discovering new hair stores at this year’s fair! But … what was the first hair I bought? Two hairs from Exile … And I didn’t even plan to – it was just the first store I walked into with hair I had to have.

Exile – HollieRae (Cranberry – roots)

A new store for me was Sugar Smack – got two great hairs from that store. Also, Illusory looks to have some really great hairs. Got two from that store as well … I think Hair Fair is getting rather expensive for me – but well, I guess that’s just as it’s supposed to be.

Sugarsmack – Bunni (Red Delicious)

Illusory – Yew (Passion)

Stinalina trots on. Buys a hair from Red Mint. Stops at Tekuteku.

Tekuteku presents three hairs – I love all three. Only issue is, they don’t have a decent red … Bought two of them anyway …

TEKUTEKU – float (firebrick)

So my total ended up being 13 hairs – and two bandanas. There really is a reason I shouldn’t be allowed to walk these fairs on my own! And … I still have all the demos from the Hair Fair Demo group to go through … just in case I missed something …! I didn’t make it all the way either – Hair Fair is huuuuuge!

LeLutka – Shoop (FireTop)

Hair Fair is not just about getting all the new great styles, discovering hair stores you didn’t know and just shopping, shopping, shopping. Hair Fair actually supports Wigs for Kids and this year, every hair style at Hair Fair 2011 are donation items so no matter what you buy, you support the cause. Remember also Bandana Day on July 15th where we remover our hair and wear bandanas – all bandanas are just 50L and all proceeds go to Wigs for Kids as well.

Red Mint – Hair no. 11 (Red Organdy)

As you can see, lots of different hairs – at least one style to fit everyone! And – this is just a tiny tiny tiny little look at what’s being offered at this year’s Hair Fair. Go shop!

Here are all the slurls!

TOSL: Once upon a time …

I’ve been away from SL for a couple of days, only checking in to check messages and sales. But when I started going through this week’s TOSL event, I was really impressed. So many beautiful things. Clothes, pose props, accessories … This is really a great week for TOSL so hurry out and get these goodies.

There are so many good things this week, so I’m only showing some of them. I’m really impressed with how the designers have used this week’s fairy tale theme. There are so many different takes on this theme and really, it’s good stuff! Check out the official TOSL blog to see it all.

This week TOSL also introduced a new thing – each week will have a featured designer:

This week’s Featured Designer is Scarlet Chandrayaan of Iced Jewelry and Magnifique Poses. Scarlet is one of our charter TOSL members and has owned Iced and Magnifique for nearly 2 years! Be sure to stop by her shop and pick up the gift she’s got for you (be sure to have your Taste of SL Shopping IN WORLD group tag on, it’s for group members only!)

I’ve used several poses and pose props from Magnifique Poses and Scarlet Chandrayaan has some really great poses and props. Remember to pick up the extra gift she has put out at her store.
