Two at One Blow!

In the story of the Brave Little Tailor, the tailor kills 7 flies with one swat of his hand. To celebrate this feat, he makes a belt containing the boast, “Seven At One Blow.” You can read all about it right here.

Well, from the title of this entry, you might assume that this will be a tale of two styles—and you’d be correct. They were both released yesterday at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore, and are ready for purchase.

Natalya

Natalya is a nice, curly style for both work and play. It’s tied back to keep it away from your face, but it hints at how long it might be when it’s worn loosely. And since it’s already tied back, it’s also perfect for drinks or dinner with your BFFs after work!

 

 

As always, the complete kit, including all of the colors shown in the advert above, is $L1500. Individual color sub-sets are available for
$L250 each, and you can grab the single Light Brown color free at the voting area.

I like this one.

Agnesa

Agnesa is a smart updo for all occasions. Like Natalya (above), it’s great for work or play. I like the way it features loose tendrils, which hint at a slight erotic dishabille.  Again, it’s a great look for work as well as fun after with your BFFs.

 

 

The details:

The full color set is L1500, while individual sub-sets are $L250 each. But there are two specials! Butter Toffee is free at the front desk,
and Caramel is on special for $L50!

Just a reminder that the February Formal Styles sale is still going on at both Alli & Ali locations: Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore, and Alli&Ali Designs Classic. Don’t forget their website, and be sure to look for them on the SL Marketplace.

And that wraps it up for this week!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh, You Poor Dears!

Sometimes I find myself feeling sorry for men in Second Life. And to be honest, in real life, too. You’re far too restricted in what’s acceptable for you to wear and how to look.

In the song “My Conviction,” from the musical “Hair,” a character sings this:

“I would just like to say that it is my conviction
That longer hair and other flamboyant affectations
Of appearance are nothing more
Than the male’s emergence from his drab camouflage
Into the gaudy plumage
Which is the birthright of his sex.

There is a peculiar notion that elegant plumage
And fine feathers are not proper for the male
When actually
That is the way things are
In most species.”
–Galt Mac Dermot / Gerome Ragni / James Rado

Fortunately for you guys, the crew at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore have got your backs!

Andrew is a new style for men, but to be honest, I like it as a unisexual style—it looks just as good on me as it does on the model in the picture above. And I’m sure that a few of my dyke girlfriends will like it, too!

 

 

And you’ll love the price: $L250 for all 16 colors. And as they say on television, “But wait! There’s more!”

You can get it in Sand Blonde for free at the front desk, and in Coffee for free at the voting booth.

Okay, guys: never let it be said that I con’t keep my eyes open for you!

 

Truly a Timeless Design

Every once in a while, if you’re lucky, you’ll come across a hairstyle so simple, so basic, it transcends time and place and becomes a classic—timeless.

Such is Timeless, a new offering from Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore.

But wait!

You won’t find it there! Instead, it’s at the January Dazzle Event. As always, the complete collection sells for $L1500, while each of the 8 subsets sells for $L250 a set.

 

 

 

The barette is colorable, or you can hide it completely.

But you’d better hurry—this event only runs until the 25th of January, and once it’s gone, it’s gone!

Timeless, a timeless design from the Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore.

 

 

Amelia Is My Kind of Style

Long, flowing, and with hair clips! A new release from Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore:

What I like most about it is that I have long hair myself in RL, and I generally tie it back. And Amelia comes complete with hair clips, so I can do the same in SL. They’re colorable, too, via the included HUD:

The only way I could like it even better would be if I could change the color of the clips individually, rather than as a pair. That would reflect more accurately my hectic RL.

But never you mind! This style is destined to be part of my regular collection!

 

 

Amelia follows the usual A&A price schedule: $L1500 for the complete collection of 8 color sets, or $L250 for each of the individual sets. The HUD is included, and it has the usual low display weight.

If you’re looking for a nice feminine style with several display options, you can’t go wrong with Amelia, from the Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore.

 

Trissae: New from Alli & Ali

Carefree and wind-blown That’s how I’d describe Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore’s latest offering, Trissae. It comes with all the colors you see here, and can be configured in one of four styles.

The complete set sells for $L1500, but you can purchase any one of the 8 different color packs for $L250 each.

 

 

Trissae, selling now at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore.

 

A Bit of a Conundrum

What oh what to do when reviewing an outfit that consists of 3 separate items? Do I take a full-length portrait, which of necessity will sacrifice detail, or do I highlight each item with its own picture?

Decisions, decisions!

I decided on the latter to model this new offering from .:TBO:. The Beautiful Ones.

It’s a 3-piece set, consisting of the Eider vest, Arlet pants, and Lea booties with chains.

Each item sells for $L99, but there’s a catch: it’s part of The Darkness Monthly Event for December, which runs from 5 to 28 December.

So be sure to get yours before they’re gone for good! And while you’re at it, be sure to check out all the latest fashions at .:TBO:. The Beautiful Ones.

Lola: Immortalized in Music

There are two wildly different songs about Lola, the latest offering from Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore.

The first is from the old musical, Damn Yankees: “Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets.”

And if you’re of my generation, Lola will always mean The Kinks’ classic: “I met her in a club down in old Soho where they drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry cola. L-O-L-A Lola.”

 

 

 

 

This Lola refers to neither. Rather it’s another long flowing style from Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore, and it’s available at the usual price of $L1500 for the complete set of all colors.

Individual sets are available, too: Ombre colors ($L250), Unicorn colors ($L250), Blonde colors ($L250).

I’ve been wearing (and modeling) A&A creations for over a year, and I find them to be among the finest creations of any kind in all of SL. I have a couple of Alt accounts I use for other purposes, and one of the first things I did when I created them was to buy hair styles from the Mainstore. For my money, they’re the best value around.
