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.

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.

Fade To Grey

12 03 2010

Most people probably don’t think of grey when you mention spring, instead calling the brighter shades of nature to mind.  However, one of my favorite things about spring is the beginning of storm season.  Those tumultuous grey skies, cool rain, and the light show that is nature at her best, or worst depending on your view.  And because I love the color grey for spring looks, I was delighted to see that some of the newest releases from L`Abel were indeed made in this lovely shade.

Swirly

1 03 2010

When Sascha Frangilli passed me one of her newest releases for review, the name perplexed me a bit.  An outfit that consists of black and houndstooth doesn’t immediately bring the word swirly to mind.  But once I got into the folders and saw the sheer number of mix and match possibilities, I understood a bit better.  Yes, my mind was swirling with all of the style options that Swirly offers you and I had a lot of fun putting different looks together.  For my first look, I wanted to contrast the classic houndstooth pattern of the jacket with a very modern twist.
