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.

Clothing Fair: Exploring New Cultures With Milky House

16 03 2010

Another great thing about Clothing Fair is being exposed to designers/styles that you wouldn’t normally see everyday in your second life.  It’s a great opportunity to find great new designers and see what’s going on fashion wise in the lands outside of our comfort zone.  And that is exactly what happened to me when I stumbled into the Tokyo SIM and found myself standing in the Milky House store.  This mini kimono was so cute; I just had to have it.

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.

Valentine Glam

7 02 2010

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and, as it is my RL birthday, I thought it would be appropriate to do some valentine themed posts.  Having your birthday on Valentine’s Day can sometimes be problematic especially if, like me, the whole cutesy heart and flowers stuff isn’t really you.  The only time I wear heart anything is if there’s a skull, screws, or something else attached to it.  But red is my favorite color, so I decided to stick with the color scheme of the holiday for the upcoming looks.  Instead of cutesy heart and candy type stuff, I’m going to do Valentine’s Day my way (it’s my birthday, I’m allowed) and focus on looks that are edgy and modern, sexy and flirty, dark and mysterious.  For the first look, I’m starting off with a look inspired by today’s SL Daily Deal – the Sweet Stacked Rings by alaMood in Pink Burst.
