Today Avenue just started its Autumn/Winter 2013 show. I will admit I was less excited about the shows than I was the shopping. After streaming some of the shows online I popped into the sim and picked up a few things.
The shirt from a store called Blvck Anchor is one of those items I picked up. The design of the shirt itself is simple enough with a nice leather detail from. It’s just the chese front of the shirt that has this leather texture. I thought it was sort of a cool contact and knew I need to add it to my inventory.

So on Saturday Hair Fair opened. I some how managed to get in on my 10000 try. I did buy some hairs which I will blog this week or next but I wanted to show case one of my favorite hair styles from Discord Designs that I was sent in a blogger pack. Discord Designs is a name I have been using on my blog for a while back when I had that really cool mustache thing going on. Other than epic facial hair, one of the things this brand is really known for is dread locks. Now if you have been following my blog for a while you know I have a love for the dreads. So naturally, I was excited to get blogger copies of Discord Design’s hair fair items and even more so when these amazing, stunning, fantastic locks rezzed on my head.
These dread locks called Cosima are by far, hands down, no runner ups, my favorite Hair Fair item from Discord Designs this year. Don’t get me twisted (Like these amazing locks) the other styles are great in their own light but nothing holds a candle to these locks. The dreads themselves are mesh and come in three sizes to fit almost anyone. Add the included hair base gives the effect like these hair to make these locks are pulled from the scalp. If you some how manage to get into Hair Fair check out the Discord Design’s booth on the Cloud sim
Normally I try hard to stay away from events. I find that a good chunk of the time the lag is so bad that it takes you a full minute to walk one inch. Added to the fact that a lot of these events are geared to women that sometimes I feel as a male avatar it would be a waste of my time just to go and grab one or two items. Despite all this, either out of boredom or peer pressure from plunk, I jumped over to Summerfest and boy, was I glad I did.
I somehow managed to get into Summerfest on my second try which is not all that common for a Secondlife event. When I landed, I was greeted with the sound of the beach boys, the sound of the ocean, and some really fun finds.

The Men’s Department is just around the corner and I for one am super excited. Just the other day a preview was sent out to the group. When I opened it I came across the shirt in this look. To be honest when I first saw it all I could think of the hippy stoners in my town but the more I looked at it, I started to think of India.
If you haven’t taken the time to explore the Zaara sim I would like to be the first to suggest it. Not only is the sim stunning; there is also an amazing Bollywood stream playing. I think the music is what made me go Bolly with this look. I went to check to see if the pants (or Chinos) were still in the in-world store. The music came on and I was like “Done, Doing Bollywood.”

So an amazing event opens tomorrow. I bet you never heard of it. It’s called The Arcade. Today I swung by for blogger preview day and picked up a few amazing items. For this look and this picture I am using two of the amazing items you can win at the event. The first item would be the Boom Nature’s Crown and a Teardrop Trailer for the store Floorplan.
In this look I am also using the amazing Mesh Feet from Ispachi. I am going to do a blogger blog post with all of it’s features but for this look I am just going to give a bit of a preview. Trust me these things are amazing.

I have a love affair going on with Military style jackets. I few blogs ago, I talked about how I loved the Peacoat from this round of the Men’s Department. Peacoats are normally part of the Navy uniform. Which is why I was trilled to see it. Now picture my joy when I came across this Military style jacket from Aitui.
The coat comes in three colors. Grey (Above), Black, and a Red tone. Right now, I have only the Grey one. I plan on buying the other colors here soon. I am also in love with these boots. The full image above doesn’t show off how epic they are, but I included a detail shot in the credits bellow.
While I have your focus I am going to toot my own horn again. Remember how I talked about The Arcade coming back in March? Guess who is going to get early blogger access. This guy! Which means I have to start saving up my lindens.

Hey guys. So yesterday, I finished up the Jack and Jill hunt. I have not unboxed all the items yet (I cannot find a sandbox that doesn’t want you to be a premium member) But the few things I managed to try on and open I loved. So, here is a look using two of those items. One of which you cannot see well (The hair base) But I included a link to a better photo of it. The other item are the jeans.
The men’s department is still a thing and I paired this look with a ring from Kosh. Word of advice if you are a fan of the CheerNo mesh hands like I am. Make a copy of the ring than attach it to the same point as the hand. Edit to move it on the finger. Because the ring attaches to the hand normally, it will move with the hand. The CheerNo mesh hands attach to the forearm. Like the hairbase, the ring is hard to see in these looks. But I included a better picture in the credits.

One of the things I hate about blogging is naming blogs. Honestly I don’t think of blogger names until I am about ready to save the images from PS which is why this blog post really has nothing to do with the title. Well except the glasses are suppose to be 8bit. But other than that no.
