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: 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

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.

Ethereal

31 07 2009

I never go to any grand ball’s or lavish parties, but I must admit that I love ballgowns.  There is something so elegant and beautiful about a well made gown that I find hard to resist.  Such is the case with one of the newer releases at Sascha’s Designs – Ethereal.  Sascha Frangilli was kind enough to gift me with this gorgeous gown in Argent, which is a lush silver color.  The dress can be worn in three different ways and it comes with a really well done hat.  Unfortunately, hats and my avatar are not a good combination generally, but it’s a gorgeous piece and certainly gives you options.  I chose to wear the full ballgown skirt, but will include the vendor ad at the end of this post so that you can see how versatile this dress is.

Back in Blacklace

16 03 2009

Alphamale & Blacklace has reopened with a gorgeous new build. The new layout is very open and airy, yet it maintains the charm that was inherent in the old build. To celebrate the re-opening, Mariska Simons of Blacklace has put out two new releases (one gown, one lingerie). She was nice enough to send them to me for review, and I couldn’t wait to see what she had come up with this time. I was not disappointed. But then, Mariska never disapppoints me. I love Blacklace; this is no secret.

The first new release is called Spring Romance and it is a gorgeous formal gown with a lovely, flowing skirt and satin opera length gloves to match.
