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.

Clothing Fair: A Night Out With EarthStones

14 03 2010

As you have probably heard by now, Clothing Fair began this weekend.  If you’ve not braved the lag, I urge you to de-prim and teleport over there to check it out.  There are eight different sims for you to wander through.  This year, they are built to look like different cities around the world.  As if the fabulous shopping wasn’t enough to entice you, the builds are really stunning.  I couldn’t pick a favorite city if you asked me to; each one definitely had it’s own character. 

With eight full sims of shopping, you can imagine the long list of designers participating this year.  And, of course, Clothing Fair is really about raising money for the American Cancer Society.  One of the things I love about SL is our ability to raise large amounts of money for a cause without any one person having to stretch their budget.  Clothing Fair is a wonderful example of this generosity.  Most designers have special items in the RFL vendors, with all of the proceeds from those sales being donated.  Also, many designers are using this event to debut new pieces to the public. 

 One of the new items being debuted this year is a gorgeous new jewelry set from EarthStones called Zahra. Abraxxa Anatine was kind enough to send over a review copy the other night and I couldn’t wait to build a look with it.

Cocktails, Anyone?

8 09 2009

Since buying the fatpack of the Shanti shoes by Maitreya Gold, I’ve decided to try to come up with an outfit for every single color in said fatpack, even the ones I would not normally wear.  A lofty goal, perhaps, but as I am ruined for regular avatar feet now, I don’t see me taking these off for a while.  Why not play around with variety then?  It is what this blog is about, after all.  For today’s look, I started with the Shanti shoes in Cerulean.
 
I love the color Cerulean, and the word is just fun to say really.  For this pair of the Shanti shoes, I wanted something elegant but not too formal.  A little cocktail dress that was glamourous and sexy, but not over the top. The Soft Ruffle Dress from Baiastice turned out to be the perfect match.

Swimsuit Spotlight – Baiastice

27 08 2009

Unless an incredibly fantastic bikini/swimsuit gets released in the near future, this will likely be my last post on swimwear for a while.  Not that we can’t enjoy a dip in the ocean all year long in our virtual paradise, because we can.  But the change of seasons in RL will have me focusing on my favorite season soon; autumn.  Until then, I’ve saved one of my favorite swimsuits for last:  Barcelona by Baiastice.

Mix and Match The Night Away!

14 04 2009

I’ve given up on doing the entire Bunny Hop Hunt for several reasons.  It’s just too big and too hard and my inventory is already too chaotic to add another 200+ items that it will take me months to sort through.  So I asked myself which stores I’d be sad to miss and just hopped to those places.  One of those places was Baiastice.
 
I’ve always thought Baiastice to be one of the most interesting stores on the Grid, and I tend to have very strong reactions to the designs of Sissy Pessoa.  There is no internal debate for me while shopping there.  If I own it, it was an instant “I love it and must have it right now” decision.   And I’m always excited to find new stuff out at Baiastice because there is the possibility that she’s done something that will blow me away.  Imagine my delight to have stumbled upon an entire area of new stuff (well new to me, anyway) while hunting for yet another elusive easter egg.  It was an area of mix and match seperates that I was really excited to see at Baiastice.  And, of course, a few things immediately grabbed my attention.  The first was this lovely, soft silk top.
