Sunday is Bandana Day @ Hair Fair in support of Wigs for Kids .
Last few days for Designer Showcase.  A new round in a new location opens August 5.

Weekend of July 22

The Boys of Summer July 16-31

You've asked for it... here it is: a shopping event just for the MEN!

Gentlemen, get yourselves over here! Ladies, take your guy, or if he really hates shopping, kidnap his avi for a couple hours and get him some stylish clothing.

 The shops are arranged on a nice splintery fishing pier so the guys will not feel like they're doing anything sissy as they stroll along looking in the bait shops and surfboard displays. There is hair, shoes, t-shirts, sporting goods, tats.... you get the idea. All that stuff that guys need to look sharp and sexy in one spot till July 31.

Thanks to my friend, William, for posing. Now if I could just get him to change his shirt...

Hair Fair  July 16- 31 "YOU ARE HERE "

The map gives you a glimpse of the scope of the event. There are 4 sims with cul de sacs of identical row houses, each dedicated to a different hair-maker. Gifts in many of the stores.
A portion of all sales goes to Wigs for Kids.

Designer Showcase for July

I made another visit to Designer Showcase and wanted to share a few items that haven't been featured much ~

This skin from ISBJ is absolutely gorgeous!
It's a beautiful dark golden brown and is shaded and highlighted perfectly.
The body suit from FurtaCor fits well and features really sexy cross lacing in the back.
I paired it with the KC Nenya heels which have a hud that allows you to color different sections of the shoes to match even a complex print like the suit perfectly.
The Tantalum necklace has a hud as well and looks great with both dressy and casual wear.

Another look @ KT Creators Festival

KT Creator Festival July 9-17

I mentioned the KT Creators Festival in my July 9 blog, but I would like to revisit it to give you a bit more information. This event benefits the Pink Ribbon Organization. In addition to merchant stalls there are gachas, 'One of a Kind' Auctions, Festival Bargains, Festival Exclusives and fashion shows.

Kushi's Textures ~ textures on the left are exclusive to the Festival; the textures on the right are auction items. What a wonderful dilemma: designing something with truly unique textures !
One of a Kind Auction - bid at the auction boards at the festival near the waterfall.  Only ONE pack of these textures will ever be sold in SL - Auction ends July 17 1.30pm.  There are lots of other items to be auctioned, so don't miss out!

There are 4 fashion shows coming up this week. Be sure you don't miss them!
12 July 1pm Fashion Show - ladies’ fashion
16 July 1pm Fashion Show - ladies’ fashion
16 July 7pm Fashion Show - kids & big people’s wear
17 July 1pm Pink Parade Fashion Show

I'm wearing an outfit from Nomiki's Creations which is also available at the KT Creators Festival

Weekend of July 9

New rounds of your monthly favorites, a good cause and a special sale item... 

KT Creators Festival July 9-17
This event benefits the Pink Ribbon Organization to find a cure for breast cancer. You'll find lots of cute clothes, items exclusive to the event, texture sets, clothing for Toddleedoo avis... and more!
I'm modeling one of the offerings from Nomiki's Creations. Her booth features full outfits complete with shoes and jewelry in styles ranging from casual to dressy in sizes for classic, Belleza, Maitreya and Slink bodies.

Hair ~ Truth Hair Kasimire Pastels
Body ~ Maitreya Lara 3.5
Skin ~ Plastik ~ Syalani REDUX
Gown ~ Nomiki's Creations Diana Formal Dress in Pink Velvet * available @ KT Creators Festival
Jewelry ~Nomiki's Creations Pink Topaz jewelry with gold or silver *comes with the Diana Gown
Shoes ~  Hilly Haalan Joice Wedges *available @ the Cosmopolitan event

Bargains galore at this one. Everything from furniture to clothing. Gachas in a few of the booths and down the center of the mall. IMHO, this event's must-have item is shoes by HILLY HAALAN. Cute Joice Wedges with 5 texture huds of 30 colors, one for each part of the shoe, as well as 4 metals. The color combinations are astronomical for these and they're only L$99. Sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.

Vintage Gacha
All the usual suspects are represented. Most of the items are Gorean style outfits, jewelry and equipment which have appeared at other gacha events. The gachas are L$30-L$50, so this is a good opportunity to fill in missing parts of collections. Each booth also offers a free gift, so you really can't go too wrong with this one.

This month's theme is "Sahara", so you will find many desert/summer outfits, hair styles and accessories. Colors are primarily gold, rust, turquoise and white. Truth Hawks is one of the primary sponsors and several other hair makers are also participating, so hair whores, consider yourself warned!

My last post covered quite a different style, so be sure to scroll down and give it a look.

Today's offering:

A dress that is not for the faint of heart.
It can go to the beach or even serve as a toga or for Gorean wear: Tori's-Stylez ~ Tara.

Pulse Fundraiser

I can't think of anybody I know who wasn't affected by the shootings at the Pulse nightclub.
It has been a rough month in the gay sims as everyone tries to come to terms with what happened in Orlando.

After weeks of numbness and tears, SL has responded as it does best. There is a fundraiser for the families of the victims and the survivors. They will need financial as well as emotional support for a long time and I'm so glad that the SL community has stepped up in this way.

The designers are donating from 50-100% of their profits to the Equality Florida fund. I would ask you to stop by and look at the wonderful goods and services being offered for sale and at auction.
Items available at the site cover everything from makeup to furniture. There is a lot of variety and something to appeal to everyone.

Whether you're gay, straight, bi, trans or anywhere in between, this affects us all!

Body ~ Maitreya Lara v3.5 mesh body
Hair ~ !Oleander ~ Oz v2 Siren Tones *50% donation
Skin ~ Plastik Spektrum Skin for PULSE *75% donation
Outfit ~ Plastik Vore Top Sunset *100% donation
Shawl ~ +Aii+ Pulse Hagoromo Pack *100% donation
Nails ~  Alaska Metro Pride Nail Art *100% donation
