Tredanya, a New Style for the Modern Woman

Tredanya is Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore’s example of a style that I’d call an unbalanced bob. Bob, because it’s just that. Unbalanced, because one side is shorter than the other.


But whatever you want to call it, it’s an elegant look best worn with a nice dress. I like to wear it with my favorite red mini.




See? From this side, it’s a regular bob cut. But from the other side:


But no matter what you call it, it’s an elegant, trendy look for any woman who’s dressing for a night of a dinner followed by dancing followed by who knows what?

It’s available at the Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore for $L1500, and that includes all the colors shown above, as well as the resize-recolor HUD.

As a reminder, here a couple more places where you can find Alli&Ali products:

It’s Not Always About Hair!


I do other things in SL besides review hair styles. I also own a house which I share with a few friends. But because of SL’s property restrictions, the only way they were able to set their home locations to the house, I had to create a group and invite them all to it. Finally, I had to set the property’s group attribute to the group I had just created.

Creating a group costs $L100, and once you’ve created it, you have 48 hours to add new members. It’s crucial that you add at least one new member in that 48 hours, or else SL will delete the group and you’ll be out the $L100. Once you’ve done that, you can invite as many members as you like, whenever you like. You can also assign roles (with varying permissions) to the members; the default role is Everyone, which basically means they’re a member of the group, with no special privileges. As the group owner, you can change their abilities. You can also create new roles and assign them varying permissions.

For more details on groups, check out the Groups Overview page.


When it comes to owning land, upgrading to a premium account is your best move. Not only do you get a free, customizable house, you also get an additional allowance of 512 square meters. This additional allowance, however, only entitles you to purchase the acreage at the going market rate. Previously, you had to pay an extra monthly fee in order to purchase the extra land.

Instead of 512 square meters, premium membership allows you a total of 1024 square meters. However, you’re not required to use the extra acreage; it’s there if you want to use it.

And Yes, Hair!

Rumbera 1

Okay, so it’s mostly about hair. While I haven’t received this week’s official notice, I can tell you that the newest selection from the Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore is Rumbera, and you can pick up your free copy at the front desk of the store. Since it’s free, it only comes in one color—fire red. But whoever complains about free goodies, right?

Besides, you know me well enough to know how much I love red!

Until next time,

Viennara: A Classic Up-do

Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not a big fan of up-dos. I’m more of a jeans-and-t-shirt kinda girl, and my favorite hairstyles reflect that fact.

But I know that many of my readers are more traditionally feminine than I am, and even I find myself from time to time needing a more elegant appearance. Nothing says elegance quite like a formal up-do, and nothing says up-do quite like Viennara.

Viennara is this week’s selection from Alli&Ali Designs. As you can see, it comes in a myriad of colors, all of them chosen and resized (if necessary) by way of the enclosed HUD..

$1500L the complete set, but if you hurry in to the Mainstore, you can grab a free sample in dark brown.

A Word on Formal Styles

Fashion tastes and styles vary as much as reasons we have for being in Second Life. Alli&Ali Designs offers more than just hairstyles: scripts, gadgets, organizers, accessories, men’s fashions, shoes, lingerie, and so much more.

You really owe it to yourself to visit Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore to see all of their fine products!

Building The Perfect Beast, Redux

After my previous post about inventory management, I decided it was time to invest a little effort into customizing Jenny. But I decided to do it all with freebies, just to show you how you can customize your look without spending a single penny (or Linden) while doing it.

By the way, have you noticed the latest change to this site? It has a new address: This change has resulted in one more change: no more advertising! I figured I owe that much to you, my readers. The internet has far too much advertising as it is, and I’m just doing my best to reduce the distractions.

So adjust your bookmarks accordingly!

We now return you to your regular post, already in progress.

There are Freebies, and Then There are FREEBIES!

Just as in real life (RL), free things in Second Life (SL) are often worth what you pay for them. Fortunately, there are many vendors of high-quality products who offer their goods for free. This is good advertising for them: by giving you a sample of their product, they hope to get your future business if you decide to obtain more of their product. This makes perfect sense, if you think about it.

At the same time, these designers also know that now everyone in SL has money to spend, and the more considerate of them offer their goods and services for free.

But not all free goods and services (freebies) are quality. Often, they’re the result of someone’s first building project that they’ve decided to share.  And many of them come packaged with a lot of junk,  too.

So how do you tell the “good” merchants from the “bad?”

One way is to look on the SL Marketplace. Because merchants pay for their products to be listed, you can be pretty sure that they won’t be offering junk. I do a lot of my shopping there—even for freebies—and I’ve rarely been disappointed.

Another way is to visit one of the many newcomer-friendly locations in SL, such as New Resident Island. Jenny did, and that’s where she found her new shapes, skins, clothing, and manicured nails.

A unique look, comprised of freebies!

Next, we’ll look at Animation Over-riders.

Chris is the latest offering from Alli&Ali. It’s a masculine style, but it also looks god on women. Here’s how it looks on me:

Chris comes in several colors:

It’s a bargain at $L250, but if you buy it now, you’ll get a refund of half the price, so it’s only $L125. I’m not sure how long the sale will last, so get it now! And while you’re at it, check out the sale on red hair styles as well.

My friend Ellie bought Chris, and she wears it in black:

Of course, Ellie loves all things dark and gothic, and she says she loves Chris.

As always, you can’t go wrong with Alli&Ali for all your hairstyle needs.
