Adding An Edge To Glam

19 04 2010

A new release from Leezu Baxter is always cause for celebration.  She is one of the most unique designers on the grid and, even if one of her designs isn’t exactly my style, I am always intrigued by it.  More often than not, however, it is exactly my style and I can’t wait to tp over to her store and snag a few colors.  Such was the case with this newest release, the Mailiin Blouse.

Valentine Darkness

9 02 2010

Valentine’s Day takes on a whole different feel when I let the dark side of my personality come out to play.  You definitely won’t find any candy hearts in this post, nor anything pink. *looks pointedly at Gabby*  I wanted to go dark and a bit sinister today, maybe a little mysterious.  This look was all about indulging that inner darkness while stretching my wings, both stylistically and photographically.  The Feather Dress from LeLutka seemed like a good place to start.

Blazing a Trail with COCO

5 01 2010

COCO is fast becoming one of my favorite stores.  The love affair started with the Slim Fit pants in silver, continued on through those same pants in every available color, and has now moved forward into every aisle of the store.  The designs of Cocoro Lemon are stylish and varied.  Seriously…I challenge you to go into that store and not find at least one thing that catches your eye.  From shoes and accessories, to separates and dresses; there is a little bit of everything at COCO. 

Recently, I snagged this fantastic black bomber jacket.  And when I say fantastic, I mean F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!  It’s cropped just about the waist and the sculpted attachments add just the right flair.  I love the little details here, especially the tabs on the zippers.  The pushed up sleeves sort of give it an edge, and I decided to take it in the direction of biker chic.

::Emjay:: Sash Tops – A Night Out

16 09 2009

Magen Jigsaw of ::Emjay:: was kind enough to send over a fatpack of her newest release: the Sash tops.  I was so excited when I saw the photo of this incredibly cute yet sexy top, I IM’d her right away to tell her so.  I couldn’t wait to try them on, and I was not disappointed.  Magen continues to get better with each release she puts out.  I absolutely love everything about this shirt: the asymentry of the hem, the way it wraps around the neck and leaves the shoulders bare and the lovely textured band underneath the bustline.  The Sash top is cute, yet sexy; feminine and flirty.  It’s form-fitting without really showing a lot of skin.  That is the best kind of sexy, don’t you think?  Shirts that make the imagination wander just a bit.
 
The ::Emjay:: Sash Tops come in seven different colors, and, being the adventurous sort, I thought I’d try to come up with a look for each color option.  I wanted to do this, mostly, to show you how versatile the tops can be and will be breaking my posts up accordingly.  Now, the top does come in Olive, and those of you who read this blog know that I don’t wear green.  The jury is still out on whether or not I’ll be able to pull something together for that one, but for today I will show you the first two looks I put together.
 
My favorite of the entire fatpack is the White shirt.
