The Garden

The Garden

Collabor88 just opened and their theme for this round is Raw Nostalgia. It’s a very sophisticated palette of colors in muted, soft tones of pink, ecru, and various shades of taupe. Maitreya released the Vintage Lace Gown, in a variety of soft tones, and a black.  The dress comes with a few options. The main component of the dress is Part 1, a solid color slightly ruched ankle length sleeveless sheath dress which can be worn on it’s own.  Even alone it’s beautiful, form fitting, and well done. Included is Part 2 and Part 2 Longer, this is a sheer lace sleeveless overlay that features a sexy hip high slit on one side, and the difference between the two Part 2′s is one is just a tad longer than the other.  You pick the length you like, and can change the look of the sheath by wearing it over if you like.

All parts of the dress come in the same color, however I’ve styled it here with the sheath (Part 1) in the Romantic colored dress, with the Lace Overlay (Part 2) from the Raven colored dress, for a completely unique look.  The dress is available in six colors. Also from Maitreya at Collabor88 is a mesh collar, and pearl necklace.  I’m wearing the mesh collar in Black.

The Garden

I’ve styled this look with much of what I last wore in a classic choice of opera length gloves, and peep toe heels.  My Opera Gloves are by Adam n Eve, and are a glove layer, and skin applier with glove texture for my Avatar Enhancement Hands from Slink.  So easy to wear, just throw on the glove layer, turn off your nails, and enable tattoo layer using the Slink Utilities HUD. Wear the Adam n Eve applier hud to pick the color of the hand’s glove. My Glitter Peeptoe shoes are from Slink, and made to be worn with their Avatar Enhancement Feet in medium. I’ve got the fatpack which features a HUD that lets me select the color of the shoe, and bow giving me tons of options for customizing by look. I’ve used Tuli’s skin appliers on my feet to match my skin, and Fishy Strawberry’s Bon Ton nail polish appliers on my toes.

My hair is Demeter from LeLutka, a soft pulled back style featuring a color change hair ribbon band and a rose you can color change and toggle off. I’m wearing it in the Soysauce hair color, my favorite of all of LeLutka’s color, but it’s a treat to wear it now as I usually grab the naturals pack if I don’t grab the fatpack.  My earrings are an older favorite of mine as well from Muse Fine Jewelry, all prim, very delicate, they’re silver and black.

Iced Bokeh To Go

Ice Whimsy- w/love hunt

The With Love  hunt begins November 30th, with many grid favorite stores participating. The hunt will begin at 4pm slt, the starting location is at Cheeky Pea.  Here’s a sneak peek of the skin La Petite Mort will be offering for their hunt item.  This skin features a lovely pale blue/white bokeh effect near the eyes, and strong almost flushed from winter blush.  This skin was fun to style, check out what Sasy did with it!  Where I went light and bright, she brought out the blues, and added some depth. I’m wearing it with Chaisuki’s 47 lashes, and Izzie’s Double Wing Eyeliner for super drama.  I’m all dressed up for an event with my Shiver dress from LeLutka, and jewelry from Muse.  These items have been in my inventory for a while, and that makes them perfect for events.  Many people rush out to grab a dress for a formal event, only to find they are one of several wearing the same dress at the event.  I like to pick up dresses, and formal jewelry here and there, so when an event comes around I have many dresses that minimise the likelihood someone else will be wearing them.  Vintage items are great, vintage like my Muse Celestine Front jewelry.  Consider this while getting ready for your holiday events.  I’m wearing new hair from LeLutka, called Electra, a soft whispy braided style, with a matching hair base.  Have fun with the hunt, and check back here, for more hunt info as it updates.

Hair Fair 2012 – Clawtooth

Clawtooth Seredipity Hair Fair 2012

Bubbles Clawtooth released four long hair styles at Hair Fair 2012.  I’ve been so busy for such a long time, I haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy some Clawtooth hair even though Bubbles is very active in releasing hairs. Shame on me, cause I love Clawtooth, and apparently I have really been missing out.  So while I help organize and build Hair Fair, depriving myself in the process of hair, it makes it all worth it’s still exciting for me.  The release included 2 long loose hairstyles, one featuring a lovely victory type curl/swoop, and 2 braids that were whispy about the face.

Somewhere between Driftwood and Bellflower

Somewhere between Driftwood and Bellflower

After a long day of working on Hair Fair 2012 details, I had so much fun getting dressed today with a variety of new and old pieces.  R.icielli just released a collection of mesh items.  Handbags, jumpsuits, skirts, and tops in a large variety of colors.  You have to see the high-waist leather skirts!  Here I have paired one of their minitops in Pearl with a new skirt from Boom available at Collabor88.  The top is made for high-waisted skirts available in the collection, and I think for many of my high-waisted bottoms it should work well.  I was even able to wear it with this cute skirt from Boom, by also using my League vintage chiffon belt.  I heavily layered 3 necklaces, by starting with my most recent purchase of the Agate Slice Necklace from Yummy, which I also picked up at Collabor88.  It’s a chunky pendant on a thin long chain, and I loved the added gems.  I’ve been all over the place shopping this weekend, from Collabor88 to the new releases at The Dressing Room Blue where I picked up this cute hairstyle called Paige from Exile.

By the way, Hair Designers, Hair Fair 2012 applications being accepted!  But hurry the deadline is the 21st of March.  That’s only a few days, and spaces are limited!!  If you know a hair designer that might be interested, please help spread the word!

Spring Fashion 2012

Spring Fashion

Spring is when we store away our heavy winter clothing, abandon the dark colors, embracing color, and light. I’ve put a spring outfit together utilizing the 2012 hot color trend of tangerine, offset with another 2012 trendy color shade of blue/green that fluctuates between teal, and jade.
