April @ Celoe

April

Celoe is doing a release of new mesh items today, and here is the April dress from their release.   It’s available in a number of trendy colors, it’s a short spring dress, that’s dressy casual, and I love how the darker colors would work for formal party wear.  I’m wearing a cute mesh hair from Exile, thats a fun partly up, partly down updo called Rivers Runs. I have accessorized with Miel‘s Uva set, and the Sadaf set from Zaara, and finished off with a mesh manicure from Leverocci, and the pretty Allure heels from Maitreya Gold.

The poses I used for my non shadow photos, are using poses released by Long Awkward Pose, at Pose Fair 2012.  Pose Fair is currently open, and consists of 2 sims full of  120 stores. 2 teleports available Pose Fair North features non adult rated content, and includes family related poses as well.  POSE FAIR SOUTH contains a wide variety of pose makers, many of whom feature some or all adult rated poses.  Please keep in mind these ‘adult rated’ poses might simply be intimate  in nature or sexually suggestive, and not all are sexually graphic.  Something for everyone at Pose Fair 2012,  grab some friends and family and check it out.

Strigidae & Tytonidae

The past two weeks have been full of fashion, and great finds.  Maitreya recently did a mesh release, shown here are their leggings from that.  Buy by the color or color/fabric pack, and you get not only the leggings, but the ‘couture’ leggings that feature this pony wedge shoe that is combined, which is great if you wanna throw them on and go, and not hunt for shoes.  Love it! The texturing on them is incredibly well done, and the form they leave you with is this amazing butt.  No lie! I’m wearing a new find from Happy with them a tunic dress shirt called Uptown.  I love the sleeves, and cuffs, and how it drapes over my hips.

My skin is from Idiosyncrasy, only $95L and is currently available at My Attic until March 31st.  See my notes below.  It’s vintage inspired and I love how precise the lips are. Check out the My Attic Flickr Group to see more items at the event.

My hair is a stunning Crazy Hair Hunt item created by Gumi’s Flower Shop.  It fully frames the head with a nest of sticks, and twigs, with two owls perched on top. The Crazy Hair Hunt begins March 31st, and features 65 participating stores that specially created unique hair in the Flora & Fauna theme for this year.  Participating stores are not hair stores, but stores that feature other items from home & garden, to building aids. The love of building, theme, and imagination is the key here.  Check out the CHH Flickr Group, to see more hunt hairs!  Psst!  I made hair too! Will blog it tomorrow or so.

Hair Fair 2011 - LoQ

LoQ released three hair styles at Hair Fair 2011 – Liqueur, Sake, and Vodka.  Liqueur is a great angled cut, Sake is a high updo knot with wisps, and Vodka a long casual straight hair parted in the back.  Her textures are great, it was easy to fit.  I can’t wait for an event to wear Sake to, it’s a great style which will go great with a number of styles of dress.  Bet this would be great to accessorize with hair ornaments.

A Busy Week

Riddle Secret Linden

The grid has been a nightmare for me recently, textures take forever to rez, worn prims disappear, then when everything is just right and I try to take a photo, the prims go grey again.  Way too frustrating!

I finally was able to get some blogging done, this outfit comprises some new releases, some event clothing, and a charity item.  March 5 to March 26, Juicybomb is hosting Pure Juice, which features a number of designers.  I’m wearing from that event, The Secret Store’s Juicy Top, in Hot Pink.  It’s also available in Carmine, and French Pink.  Featuring a prim top, with cute black bow empire waist.  Also featured at Pure Juice is Riddle, who made these awesome leather pants, shown here in black, they are also available in brown. I love the texture of them, and they feature prim pant legs.  This is just a tiny sampling of what’s there, click here for a teleport to PureJuice.

My hair and necklace are recent releases from Maitreya, and Mood.  Lotte is a relaxed pony tail with color change ponytail band.  Mood’s Chrysalis necklace and earrings, come with a hud that lets you change the metal from the shade shown here to darker tones. Je Suis has had a sale going on, you might still be able to stop by and binge on jewelry.  I picked out my Magnifique bracelet, I bought the fatpack, which has a set of bangles, and each bangle, or all, can be color changed via hud.  Two stacks are included, preset to be worn on either wrist.

My bear is the Relief L$1000 – Teddy Bear, all proceeds from the sale of this bear go to the ‘Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief efforts of the American Red Cross’.  Click here to view the 2 styles of bear, one sitting, one wearable, available in various prices. For other ways to give inworld, check out the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser which starts March 16th, and Radar magazines Japan Relief Fund Event.

Corporate Chic – Whimsy Winx – Look #1

Common questions asked inworld are where to find buisness attire.   I have put together, a challenge to my fellow fashion community enthusiasts, to help create numerous looks appropriate for the office environment.  Both men and women can participate, please remember to not feature the following…suggestive clothing…this isn’t about an affair at the office, or your managerial wardrobe at Hot Topic, no wings, antlers, elves, sorry I love you all but lets keep this strictly business!  Scroll to the bottom of the post for more information!

My first look:
Corporate Chic - Whimsy Winx - Look # 1

I love this look, I could be the editor of a magazine, on my way to meet with the board, or lunch with the girls I do charity work with.  Old school, classic, chic.  Since it’s a virtual world…I can get away easily with the height of the heel.  This outfit is by Aoharu, it’s quintessential “twin set”.  Although the shift dress, and jacket are sold as separates.  This is a great way to get a look fast, and the dress easily coordinates with other jackets, and the look can be worn year round.  This look is also an example of a full “outfit” for the challenge,  as opposed to mix and matched separates.

All this stuff…or most of it, comes in other colors, and patterns, stop by the stores to see more. The lace trim you see is my undies peeking out from my shorts…I liked the look. Ooh LaLa might be closed for a while, they’re on Tableau which has closed temporarily for their yearly rebuild. Oh yeah, I changed my lip color but in photoshop..so the top middle lip is properly represented.

Chaisuki – Paris – New Release

Chaisuki - Paris

Chai Kazan of Chaisuki skins recently released a new skin named Paris.   It’s a well defined skin, special attention paid to all areas.  I particularly like the stomach on all tones, navel, and collar bone.  She features several bikini options, hair bases, and layers of lipsticks, several layers of eyeliner, eye decor, blood, blush, smokey eyes.  They are all fun to play with. Mixing and matching to create a really unique look.

Chaisuki - Paris - Makeup Layers

The Paris skin is available in six skin tones, from Milky to Nougat.  Shown below, are Milky, Peach, and Nougat.  The attention  to the nuances of the lighter skins is great. I tried this skin, with several of the shapes I use, and find it went well with all of them, each had a unique look as well.  Grab some demos at Chaisuki.

Amacci - Full Service Salon

Amacci is a full service salon store, offering skins, hair, eyes, lashes, and lingerie…even eye sparkles!  They recently had some releases you should definitely check out if you haven’t already.

Amacci - Hair Base & Pony Tails

Firstly she just released a pack of hair base attachment ponytails that I love, and when it comes to hair bases…Carina Larsen is muh gurl.  Guys, she has pony attachments and hair bases for you as well.  Then she really wowed us by then releasing a “crazy hair” pack of shades of Blue, Blueberry, Cherry, Lilac, Lime, Pink, Purple, and Red.  Amazingly, at the moment those Crazy Hair packs (all hairs have this option as a pack now) are $35L each which include the hair base as well…so if you occasionally like me have a penchant for Pink Ponies…well then. (shown here are Blue, Lime, Blueberry (yeah I know like the yummy warm blueberry pie…mmmm, Pink.)

Amacci - Crazy Hair Packs Currently $35L!!!

As if that wasn’t enough the busy girl released the Irina skin, shown here in the various skin tones its available in.  The makeups are well done, I love how rich the eye makeup is, the work on the body is lovely, and the lips are dewy and kissable.

Amacci - Irina Skin Tones

I recently went to change my eyes, they have been to date, a free pair of eyes from Basy!, and were discontinued which is why I never really cited them in posts.  Amacci was just what I needed, as I hunted everywhere for a eye I could live with everyday.  She had a wide range of them, and I found that her browns were really well done.  I have decided to make the switch now to her Real Eyes, probably settling on Autumn, or Moon, as they are some of my favorites.  She also features sparkles for the eye!

Call for Couture – Sneak Peek – Vanitas Vesture

 

Call for Couture - Vanitas Vesture
Call for Couture - Vanitas Vesture

 

Second Life –  Call for Couture starts October 10th!  Designers were asked to create a couture item for auction (50% of this auction final price will go to the charity), and a pret-a-porter (ready to wear) variation (not limited edition).   The designs are captivating!  The first design that caught my eye was created by SarahTheRed Aurbierre of Vanitas Vesture.  She’s a talented designer, who was also recently seen at the Wear Grey event.  Her couture item is definitely a hot ticket.  Her designs were inspired by tale of The Walrus and the Carpenter, which next to the Jabberwocky is my most favorite of Carroll’s writings.   Her couture gown is stunning!  A longer gown then her ready to wear version, its skirt is comprised of oysters.

The ready to wear is a knee length dress, with sexy cowl neckline, and backless.  Available in many colors, it was quite hard to choose which I wanted, and I may go back for the rest.  I loved each and every variation.  Shown here I have the Camel which I thought was amazingly chic, all in beige, that graduated to taupe at the skirt.  Featuring an oyster hat perched on my Camelia hair from Dernier Cri, accessorized with jewelry from Zaara, and this lovely skin from eStyle Exquisite, that I can’t wait to get a chance to do a skin blog post on.  My cute G Field Square-toe Shoes complete the look.

The Classic was fun little dress for a warm autumn day.  Starting with the cowl neck in squash that graduates to beige, then to a deep crimson at the skirt.   I played around with it and mixed  the cowl neck top with an apple green high waist skirt from Ingenue shown on the right. Complete with a makeup change but also from eStyle Exquisite, Nantucket Spectators shoes from Surf Couture in a complementary Pumpkin, as is the jewelry from fri.day. I completed the look with this cute hair from Frou-Frou, a nice formal updo that includes 3 styles of hair attachments all themed for fall.  They are a shiny metallic, one created from various hair textures in a variety of shades, and natural textures forming pumpkin, acorn and leaves, in a crown.

Clawtooth @ Hair Fair 2010
Clawtooth @ Hair Fair 2010

Bubbles Clawtooth, of the Tableau Clawtooths aka Clawtooth by Clawtooth, has made yummy hairs this year, many of them with a vintage origin.  The French Connection is tres chic, and very nautical at the same time oh la ahoy, viva la resistance!  The beret is texture change which gives you tons of options, and really hugs your head well accenting your bangs/fringe.  Other designs from Clawtooth this year are RockinRolls, a fun victory roll hair, follow up another victory roll hair he did awhile back.  I love it. My Shilova is a chic short hair that I think can go from casual to evening wear. It’s very 1930’s, yet very contemporary.  You’re A Star, is exactly old Hollywood glamour, it begs for a satin gown, and a tiered fur stole with tails.  Turnip Sorbet is Clawtooth’s charity hair, its very waif like, adorable, and versatile.  Hair Fair 2010 is ongoing through September 19th.  To see what stores or get slurls to it , click here.  For maps of all stores locations on each sim click here.  Check out the inworld demo group to pick up demos!  Know before you go!  This year Hair Fair charity hair styles, and bandana donations go to help pay for custom-made Wigs for Kids.  To get some tips on managing your settings for attendance at Second Life events like Hair Fair click here.

I loved the possibilities insinuated by this hair so I paired it with a navy peacoat from en Svale, and headed over to Mystic to take shadow photos.  They were quite fail for me, but luckily Sasy is better then me at it, and took these for me.   I’m also wearing a blue strip turtleneck from Coco, I love the effect of the sculpted bottom portion, specially with this shorter peacoat.  I have absolutely no idea whose shorts I am wearing, and my apologies to the creator.  I am usually able to recall such things easily, and didnt make notes at the time this photo was taken, 1 free item from my store to the first person who accurately names it, and it appears in my inventory.  I am afraid it’s the same with the makeup version of this Chaisuki skin, you will have to try on demos to find it,  it’s most likely in the Vienna line, peach tone, as I have been wearing those alot lately.

I couldn’t do a series on my favorite jeans, without covering some of my favorite denim skirts.  I have consolidated all of these together in one post featuring the same tops, and accessories.   This is a very fun, casual look.  The sculpted Aoharu denim shirt is worn over my Bandana dress from Tuli, that is getting double duty as a halter.  The Aoharu shirt comes with the belt, but I am also wearing another belt from DeLa’s Daisy skirt, which I think plays up my bracelets from YourShape.  Together they suit the Bandana print, with the denim.  My boots are Bax’s prestige boots in red,  they come with variations in shade, boot cuff, metal finishing.  I love to wear them with denim, and have blogged them previously with them.

The skirts are from a wide variety of stores, BettePage, LeLutka, Maitreya, Muism, and Emery.   The angled skirt is Muisms, and comes in this longer style, and straight across shorter length.  I love the movement on it.  LeLutkas has a lot of structure to it without sculpts.  I love the denim textures, and the length.  Maitreya, and Emery’s both feature sculpted skirt parts, short in length and good distressed denim look.   BettePage’s is another midlength with good movement, and distressing.   I am wearing Tuli’s Gina skin from a previous run at The Dressing Room, and my hair is a new release from Mirai Style.  She’s has 3 new hairs in the front of the store,  I have no idea when they were released but they still say NEW.  ;P    To see which skirt is which, click through to my flickr photo, and hover your mouse over the image to see the name of the stores.

82nd Annual Academy Awards & Virtual Fashion

Whimsy Winx & Red Carpet Virtual Fashion

This evening I will be attending the LIVE Virtual Oscars Pre-Show, which made me wonder…what would Whimsy wear to the Oscars.  One has to carefully plan these things out.  One needs to consider what role they are to play in the evening.  Whimsy is an ‘It Girl’.   I’ve not produced, written, or starred in anything, or presenting, so the dress while chic shouldn’t overshadow anyone nominated for an award.   So as an ‘It Girl’ attending, I’m required to show up, look pretty, and act pleasant.  Pretty simple.  Maybe.  One has to consider the venue.  I will walk the red carpet, it’s a formal event.  Red, Black, and White will be colors people gravitate to because of the events nature.  I will leave that to others.  I could go for russet, but it looks wrong in the winter/spring.  Greens, are a go, but not for me today.  Swan feathers, and avant-garde have already been done.   It was a tough call but I went with spring as a theme.  I narrowed it down to two dresses.  Both flowered in theme- one avant-garde, one classic.  I chose this one, classic,  for the Oscars, as I didn’t want to be THAT girl in the avant-garde flower dress.  Not today.  That dress I will save for another event I want to stand out in.  Tonight I shall blend and enjoy the evening.

I’m wearing Exile‘s Single Lady hair in chocolate, to accentuate the amazing cheek bones of the July skin.  Swimwear by CKS Designs, this bikini called Sparklebum comes with prim side ties, and neck tie in the back, shown here in teal, its available in several colors.  To tie the look together I have the Messina heel from Digit Darkes in Vineyard, this heel comes scripted with bling, walk, and sound options.  Scarlia Inc’s jewelry in coral was perfect for bringing out the coral tones in the teal and coral shoes.  Finely made, comes in a variety of colors, to coordinate with outfits.

Symphony Skins

Symphony Skins debuted their latest skin tone Base at Vanity Universe’s Skin Fair.  The darkest of their tones to date.   The skin goes beyond a deep tan, with good shadows, and proper highlights to keep the features in focus.  A variety of makeups featuring striking makeup. Symphony Skins - Base - Body

Symphony Skins provides you with a light, red, and dark brow option, as well as a ‘busty’ version of skin that is done well.  Makeups are available in a “Day” or “Night” range, and pay special attention to making your eyes and lips a standout feature. Symphony Skins - Base/Baritone - Makeup Sampker

Baritone was a tone I liked, as well as Tenor (not shown), it’s a light tone, that’s not washed out, and even with the lighter tone, the selection of makeup still remains in keeping with the skin, and not overly vibrant.   I liked the busty effects, the highlights near the rear, and the belly buttons.
