My Silver Fox #GrannyHair / Manicure Monday

Gray Shades (click to enlarge)

Granny hair has been the trend for a bit over a year now. Celebrities are rockin the look. People have been covering up their grays for years. Now it is oddly in style to be gray for the younger generation. The hair color even looks fantastic with color dyed ends. Some people have their hair a darker gray color and others just a bit gray with a dirty blonde look.

What I have learned from friends and the internet:

  1. Make sure your hair is healthy beforehand.
  2. Don’t do this at home. Leave it to the hairdressers.
  3. It might take more than one appointment.
  4. Lots and lots of bleach is involved.
  5. Needs frequent upkeep. The gray doesn’t stay well.

If you want to save your hair from loads of bleach then going gray in Second Life is a safer alternative. And within minutes you can go back to blonde, brunette, or red hair. I’m wearing Mina’s group gift Stella, Truth Hair Arabella and Roux. The silvery gray hair looks great with a little color at the ends. This is a trend that is beautiful and sexy.

I checked out a few other hair designers grays. I think Exile has a couple of gorgeous gray hair colors. I’m wearing one from the grayscale pack in this picture. With Lelutka I only saw dark grays, Moon and Elikatira have really nice gray ombre colors. Each stylist has their own version of gray so try demos. Who you go with depends on how gray you want to go.

I found this article with great tips and pics on Buzzfeed for your RL hair.

Today is Manicure Monday. My friend, Gogo, was in need of some latte. Since we’re both huge Tres Blah fans I had just the one she needed. The nail polish is from Livia. I know that I show her nail appliers a lot. This is because she frequently releases new looks and produces a great nail polish.

There’s a New Brand in Town

Neve Athena Dress

The fashion design team of coldLogic have rebranded themselves to Neve. This new line will carry mesh support for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the default avatar. I am very happy to hear this because I love their clothes, but I do not like to take off my Maitreya Lara body. The main store landmarks and marketplace links will remain in the same location. Over the next few days I will be showing you their new designs.

I really love how Neve is using a color change hud on all new garments. Shown in the image is the hud. You are able to choose the color of the top, skirt, and ties. They can be mixed up anyway that you desire. Today was a boho kind of day. I decided to wear the Neve Athena dress in the boho design. I am wearing the cream colored top with the plum skirt and ties. The dress also comes in neutral and lively color packs.

My gorgeous Paon shoes in bronze from Ingenue matched the Neve dress color perfectly. The fun pose is new from !bang for Shiny Shabby. I’m still wearing my hair in the cute pony tails that I picked up at Truth Hair. I thought the leather wrap bracelets went well with the dress along with my Atomic Sweet Deer Romantic Necklace. Some things never go out of style.

Is this shirt wet or just made of thin material?

Is my shirt wet or just made of super thin material? Regardless of it being wet or thin it is sexy. Ever since I saw this shirt at the Mizu – A Rainy Story Event I knew that I wanted it. But I just kept putting it off. Then came Summerfest ’15 and I was done. I ran as quickly as I could to get the shirt that appears wet. Gabriel’s Limited MIZU wet shirt has a male and female version. At the time of this writing it can be found only at the MIZU event. I’m not sure if limited means it will only be sold at this event and never be sold at the main store. If so, you have until July 7th to get it. This shirt comes with a hud that allows you to adjust the transparency to 10, 20, or 30 percent. Of course it is made to look see through and wet since it is at a rainy themed event. I would have shown it to you with nothing underneath, but I want to keep my blog and pics pg. You can imagine how great and sexy that would be.

Time to Dry Off

Back to Summerfest ’15. So many great choices of bathing suits at this event. I ended up purchasing the Maitreya Caia One-piece in Coral simply because it was made for my Maitreya body and fit so perfectly. The colors of the braided straps can be changed by use of a hud. There are 15 different color combinations. While there are plenty of great looking shorts at this event, I really wanted a reason to buy the Tee*fy Anja Shorts in Cherries design at Collabor88. These are so super cute summery and remind me of shorts I wore as a teen.

Sunny Day

Now since I had a wet shirt and a bathing suit on I needed to complete my look. I googled “Second Life Wet Hair” and came up with this style from ARGRACE. The hair has water drops on the strands. It is a perfect wet look hair. Great for showers, swimming, or rainy pictures. Please forgive me if I have been living under a rock or on a platform for most of my Second Life. That is what creators end up doing. But I have never heard of ARGRACE before. I found several really nice hairstyles in this store. Several blown/laying/hanging hairstyles that are not your typical norm are in the main store. This store is definitely worth a visit.

A little shade

The shoes I wore when out of the water are from Ingenue. These are available in 12 summery colors. Betty Doyle has 3 sets of shoes at Summerfest. I’ll do a separate post on the other two. My Poses are from !bang and out of various pose packs.

Hope you’re having a great summer!!
