Search & Destroy

3 05 2010

I’ve been in a blogging funk lately.  It’s not that I don’t have anything TO blog…I just haven’t had the desire to actually do it.  Call it being in a rut, or being lazy, or whatever you want.  All I know is two weeks is too long to be in any kind of rut.  To knock myself out of it and get back into blogging, I did what I always do when I’m feeling creatively blocked.  I put on some music and see where it takes me. 

Last night I was listening to a cover of the Iggy Pop classic “Search & Destroy” and sifting through my massive inventory.  Lo and behold, a look started to emerge influenced directly by the music blaring in my ears.  It’s a bit glam, a bit punk, a bit rock and a lot fashionista.

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.

Strange As Angels

13 11 2009

Though there are all sorts of fun items for sale there, I’ve long considered Balderdash to be one of the best jewelry stores on the grid.  Saiyge Lotus makes unique and beautiful pieces of wearable art and it’s obvious she puts a little bit of herself into each creation.  Her latest set is called Strange As Angels and it is really quite lovely.  Saiyge was kind enough to gift me with this necklace and earring set in all of its colors, and I knew that I had to put some outfits together to showcase the versatility of this wonderful design.  For the first look, I decided to channel my business partner and go purple but with my own urban flare, of course.

MALT x 2

10 06 2009

I went a little overboard at the MALT sale last weekend, I must confess.  But I got some incredibly fun stuff, including a pair of black cargo shorts that I just had to show you.

I’m a big fan of cargo shorts, both rl and sl, because of their versatility and comfort.  I knew when I bought them that they could be worn with a super casual look or a very sohpisticated and sexy look.  Of course, I had to do both.

Girl on Film

31 03 2009

One of the things I really enjoy about the show Make Me A Supermodel is the runway challenge at the end of each episode. They always come up with interesting looks for the models to work with;  some more difficult than others. But it’s as much fun to see how the models will be styled as it is to critique their walks. After all, a model’s job on the Runway isn’t just to look good. It’s to look good and showcase the design well.

With that in mind, I gave myself a little challenge. I wanted to create a look (or two) reminiscent of the sometimes arty, sometimes outrageous styles I’ve seen on Make Me A Supermodel. That sounded too easy though, so I decided to create these looks wearing only items in my inventory that I’d never worn before. I’m not just talking never blogged before, either. I mean those items that I’ve bought/received as gifts or review items and just either forgot about or haven’t had the occassion to wear. We all have those pieces languishing forgotten in the depths of our inventories, I’m sure, and I thought it was high time to dust mine off. This does not include shape, however cause I only have the one, and I like it.

During this same time, I got an invite to the Corrupted Innocence SIM opening, and I took some time to go check it out. It’s a gorgeously done build, really, with lots of fabulous designers showcasing their collections. Everything from poses, skins, and shapes to clothes and shoes; it’s all there for your shopping pleasure.  It’s laid out well, too.  I don’t know about you, but a badly designed floor plan can make me crazy when I’m out and about shopping.  There were many great items for us bloggers–very generous of all the store owners there–and I snagged a few of them to use for this little personal challenge of mine.

Put On That Party Dress!

27 11 2008

There I was last Friday, the night of MDR’s Anniversary Bash, standing in my bedroom frantically riflling through my inventory. What to wear, what to wear…the age old question that every fashionista asks herself before an important occassion. I had a list of criteria I was trying to follow:

Dressy but not TOO formal.
Classy and elegant.
Something a little out of the ordinary.
And most importantly…smokin H-O-T!

My first thought was a little black dress, because that works for almost every occassion, but I wanted out of the ordinary. Perhaps I could find something that fit both bills?

It took me awhile, but I finally stumbled upon the perfect dress for theparty. It fit all of my party dress criteria, and better yet, I’d not had an opportunity to wear it yet. So what dress was the perfect dress for an anniversary bash? What dress was elegant, sexy, and a bit out of the ordinary? The Noir Vero Flexi Dress from Leezu Baxter Designs, of course.
