One of the many joys of being in the SL BLOGGER SUPPORT group is that we are occasionally granted early access to events. Often, at first glance, an event won’t necessarily fit in with my own personal agenda, but I’ll still visit in case I’m surprised and find something absolutely smashing that I just have to have. Today I visited an event that is a perfect example of just that!
DREAMFUL describes itself as an event themed around “..dreamy, blossom, cute and romantic items for kids and adults avatars..” and if I’m being honest it’s the kind of thing that I generally avoid, but in truth, I’m seriously pleased that I dropped by. I spied some lovely hair and dresses and some uber kawaii items that will appeal to a wide audience, including this cracking shirt and hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture above.
This hair is by FOXY; a new-to-me brand that retails an eclectic range of sunglasses and chokers, yoga accessories and journals in their store. They’re certainly worth your time and Lindens, and it seems like they’re expanding their range into hair now too with three styles at current events; the must-have double plait/ponytail combo that seems to be on every blog called ‘Skinny Love’ which is available from THE CRYSTAL HEART FESTIVAL, a loose bob called ‘Melt’ available at TRES CHIC and this Swing Out Sister inspired style called ‘Heartbeats’ from DREAMFUL. It’s a short, sharp and sassy style, seriously reminiscent of Corinne Drewery and Louise Brooks and tied close to the skull with a thick headband. I look forward to more equally inspired hairstyles from the brand. I’ve teamed my style with a fabulous cold shoulder style ‘Peekaboo’ denim shirt from LAZYBONES (also available at DREAMFUL) and the result is a quirky, 80’s inspired look.
The accessories that I’m sporting in this snap are both from the PULSE FUNDRAISER, which is raising funds for the victims of the ORLANDO SHOOTING. You’ll find an absolute plethora of items donated by some of the biggest and brightest designer names in SECOND LIFE and it’s a wonderfully inspiring way to show your support and raise funds for those affected by the tragedy. I just had to get this fantastic Mani/Pedi from ALASKA METRO called ‘Pride’ which features an absolutely essential selection of glitter and rainbow designs which I’ll get tonnes of wear from. I’m also sporting a rather wonderful wristband from IZZIES too; it’s also called ‘Pride’and is an open leather cuff design that features interchangeable messages to show your love and respect for all members of the LGBT community.
Last but not least my AMARA BEAUTY skin, ‘Dana’, looks great with this outfit.
