Sprechen Sie Fashion?

Nadja Baxter and Dot Lane Wearing Fleur Vivant Biba Skins and booN Hair (click to enlarge)

I spent some time today with Lorna Lubitsch, who models for Skin Within, and she introduced me to Nadja Baxter, CEO of Vanity Universe, which is currently hosting Skin Fair 2008. Nadja is also the founder and proprietress of the German SL-Style blog. Besides both being bloggers, Nadja and I share similar tastes in skin and hair but if we're twins, she got all the looks in the family. We quickly recognized each other's skin as being from Fleur and our hair from booN. Being naturally inquisitive, I had to go look at her blog. I don't read German, but that, surprisingly enough, isn't an impediment. I can pick out the store and outfit names and the pictures are beautiful. The number of stores written about that I don't recognize surprises me, but then again Nadja has ten writers for her blog, a number which your own poor Dot finds amazing. German SL-Style blog is a welcome find!

I'm also wearing my new favorite outfit, "Strictly Business" from *League*. It's strappy and buckle-y and fits me oh so nicely. Too bad for everyone that it is only for business--I mean, the outfit name says so. But what business might that be? The mind runs wild. I'd also like to add that thanks to an SL glitch, I had reason to need some customer service from League and Nena Janus took care of it cheerfully and efficiently. Thanks Nena!

both of you ladies look fantastic but then again, I'm a bit biased! I never heard of that hair place, going to have to check it out.

Great to hear from you again, Dot! I've missed your articles. ^_^

You really do look fabulous in this shot. I don't think I've seen you with that type of hairstyle before, but wow, does it ever make you shine out. More punky/grunge hair, please! ;)
