Fit For A Queen

7 04 2010

Agnes Finney created a gorgeous dress called Mayur for the charity event “For The Love of McQueen” that ran all through March.  If you didn’t get a chance to see that or pick it up, you can still grab it in her store, My Precious by Agnes Finney.  Now that the event is over, however, Agnes has created another version of the Mayur dress: Queen Mayur Grandeur.

Waterfall

28 03 2010

While going through my inventory last night, I realized that I’d meant to blog the Waterfall gown from Sascha’s Designs last week.  Alas, my rl work schedule got in the way.  But I decided to go ahead and blog it now because better late than never, right?  That should so be the tagline for this blog.

Clothing Fair: Celebrating With Baiastice

15 03 2010

Speaking of Baiastice, you can find them on the Milan SIM at Clothing Fair this year.  I’m always excited to go into the shops of designers I know and see what’s new and what they have in their RFL vendors.  After all, this is a charity event and I while I like to dress well, I also enjoy donating to a charity like the American Cancer Society.  100% of the proceeds from these special vendors will be donated and that’s really something to celebrate.  Baiastice has two such vendors this year and I could not resist purchasing the Elegantes Plumes in Midnight.  And this is definitely a dress to celebrate in.

Guinevere

9 03 2010

Speaking of SL weddings…

While I don’t ever plan on having my own SL wedding, being a photographer does afford me the opportunity to attend a lot of them.  I’m always looking for something fantastic to wear to a wedding that won’t be too much, you know?  Not too primmy, not too scripty, etc.  The wedding guests create enough lag without me adding to it and making my job that much more difficult.  For this most recent wedding, I found the perfect gown –  Guinevere from Blacklace.

Icy Diamonds

19 01 2010

While trying to come up with ideas for the January MDR Party, ice and snow where the only things that kept coming to mind.  So, not wanting to actually celebrate snow,  I decided to do a little play on words and have an “ice” party.  I’m not talking about that frozen water you find outside during the winter months.  No, I’m talking about diamonds.  After all, they are a girls’ best friend, right?  And when I think of diamonds in SL, the first name that comes to mind is Alienbear Gupte.

I’ve long been a fan of Alienbear’s fantastical designs and gorgeous sparkling diamonds. Her jewelry is ornate and beautiful, with rich jewel tones and crystal clear diamonds.  Alienbear Gupte makes high quality pieces, each as unique and creative as anything on the grid.  And while her jewelry can sometimes be a bit high prim, it’s totally worth it.  I always feel like a princess when I’m wearing something from Alienbear, and one of her newest sets, Azucena, definitely keeps that tradition going.

Be Seen.

19 11 2009

Whether you’re walking the red carpet or attending a grand ball, wearing the most fabulous dress is a necessity.  And for this month’s MDR Anniversary Party, we’re rolling out the red carpet with the help of one of my favorite dress designers:  Sascha Frangilli of Sascha’s Designs.

I’ve blogged about Sascha’s wonderful designs before (here and here, to be exact) and I’m thrilled that she agreed to be our Affiliate of the Month for Novemeber.  Sascha has graciously provided us with one of her fabulous designs to give away to all of our guests for FREE.  I thought I’d show you that lovely dress, and two more of my favorites by this very talented and versatile dress designer.  First up is my newest purchase, Trouble.
