Some creators in Second Life are just so creative and unique, you can't help but fall in love with everything they make. Their work may not be realistic or the hottest thing to have on the grid, but that makes it even more special, because it is so different. [geek.] is one of those brands that is endlessly fascinating to me. Jada Tigerpaw creates Shoes, hair, accessories, clothing, bits and bobs of pop culture deliciousness, it all is so wonderful, and I collect it like it is art, even if I rarely wear most of it. When I stopped into the [geek.] booth at Hair Fair 2014, I knew my day had come to revel in all of this fangirl love. For starters, who could resist a hair color pack called Arcades in this great loose bun style called Paper Planes Collide. Not me, that's for sure.  I snapped it out without even a demo, I just loved it on sight.  Similarly, I grabbed up a bunch of other newness from [geek.] at both Project Limited and The Gacha Mania. These adorable Trickster Wedges are just funky and so fun and in a wide range of colors in limited numbers at Project Limited, and I managed to snag the Logo Emoji Pillow from the Gacha Machine at The Gacha Mania. I still want to go back to try to get that Poop Emoji Pillow, just because it is awesome!

With 'Safari Chic' all the rage, and only so many hours in my day, I decided to combine my love for fashion and my passion for bargain hunting and go on a good, old fashioned, Bargain Hunt. You know the kind I mean. A new place, new shops to sample, and cute little items that are super cheap. The destination of the day was the Okinawa Summer Festival. Full of great Gacha Machines, some with goodies priced at only $10L, I stocked up on lots of great new accessories.

My bargain hunting look came together as I pulled on one of my favorite new wigs from ::Tabou Irresistible:: at Hair Fair 2014, the Merida, in this awesome bold Blood Red. It is so sexy, and svelte, and the fact that the long bangs cover half my face makes it a little bit mysterious too. Then I grabbed up this brilliant ...Mutresse... Ebele Romper, with it's HUD customizable textures for every separate part of the outfit, it is endlessly wonderful in solids or prints. This round of COLLABOR88 is absolutely wonderful, and I want to live in these threads. Check out the shoes, the Hamstead Sandal from ::HH:: Hucci is so sexy, I may go back for more colors, the price is so beyond reasonable. Get your own hunt on today!

As a member of the French Court, Madame de Pompadour was the official mistress to Louis XV. More than just a consort, this woman was to become an important aide and advisor to the king, and was adept in navigating life at court, avoiding making an enemy of the queen. While opinions on her vary, she was known to be a great patron of the arts, and a champion of French National pride. Known as the "Little Queen" to her friends, she made Versailles her home, and what a home it was. I can only imagine the luxury, and only approximate it with some of the most fabulous decor and fashion items at this month's Genre event.

My little apartment is richly appointed with a fabulous canopied bed from Kalopsia, furniture from Languor, and a chandelier to rival the very best from [DDD]. I adore this sweet skin from Lumae, with it's darling heart shaped velveteen mole, the nail polish is also available at Genre, made by the adorable Frogstar. I feel like a true member of the French court in all these stunning embellishments, with a lovely brocade corset by Adoness:, necklace by :(Sad Harlekin): along with this huge scripted brooch from Eclectica. I mustn't forget to mention this little bit of lace decadence in a hair ornament by Spyralle. All together, a little naughty bit of fun in the boudoir. Visit Genre today and get your fill of gilded Barouque and Rococo finery.

Sometimes you fall in love with a new hairstyle because of the style, the cut, the shape of it. Other times, it is the amazing texture of the hair or the particular color options available. Well, this new Hair Fair 2014 Exclusive style from MaiOwn!, call Lizz, ticks off all those boxes. It is a great style, but this amazing shimmery blue ombre texture in the Wilds Pack was just so stunning I had to nab it on sight. I willingly built a quirky fashion look around this wig, including an adorable TAPEMAN by Soy., available in a Gacha Machine at the new round of The KUSTOM 9. Why is it so funny that this little bit of Retro goodness is suddenly so adorable? Beacuase I owned my very own Sony Walkman back in the day when they first came out. Mind you, the headphones were a lot bigger than the ear buds provided with the Soy. version, but then, ear buds don't ruin a great hair day!

Another fabulous Hair Fair 2014 stunner, this time from Clawtooth:. This Cherry Bomb style is aptly named, it is a sexy bed head mess of sexiness, and I love the mid-length cut so much. Speaking of love, I finally managed to get my pixelated tush to this month's COLLABOR88 event, and I was never so happy to delay gratification. The theme is Safari Chic, and the offerings are completely brilliant. You can go full on traditional, with a palate of khaki, tan, and brown, or go with a more modern twist on the look, the choices are endless. As always, the best part of COLLABOR88 is how well everything works together. A top from ::{u.f.o}::, shorts from Tee*fy, and shoes from Pure Poison. Jewelry from [MANDALA] and ISON. How could I not blow up my Linden dollar balance when it all just is so perfectly mix and match friendly.  Get yourself to COLLABOR88 and enjoy a little trip to the "Dark Continent".

One of my favorite things about Hair Fair, is the discovery of really lovey wigs, and lovely hair bases to go with them. Because they can be worn separately, you can really customize your looks by wearing a hair base from one creator and a wig from another. It allows for endless personalization, which, lets face it, is hard to accomplish in Second Life when so many avatars wear very popular skins and mesh heads. This lovely weighted curl Diamond style from ISON is new and available Exclusively right now at Hair Fair 2014. The delicate baby haired hair base is from ICONIC, and just worked so well with this style, I opted to keep it on. It is also available at the Hair Fair 2014, with a style called The Icon, blogged HERE. I was feeling very girly, so pulled together a great look to wear with my new Floral Skirt 2 by [MotiAme], available at the new round of The KUSTOM 9. So from Diamonds to Daisies, my personal style will always come out on top!
