Lazy Sunday

30 06 2009
After a very busy week and an even busier weekend, I decided that Sunday would be a lazy day by the beach sort of day.  I had a lovely morning, but then my evening was busier than I had expected, so this post is going up on Monday instead of Sunday…ah well.
Nothing feels more appropriate for a lazy Sunday on the beach than a tank top and shorts, I have to say.  For those of you who have not heard, ::Exodi:: is having a 50% off sale until July 3rd with 100% of the proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  Make-A-Wish is a wonderful charity, and I think this sale is a wonderful way for Ryker Beck to commemorate the life of someone whose talent she admired.  I went and bought everything in the store I had been wanting but did not already own; knowing that, while I did spend a lot of lindens, they were going to help make a wish come true for someone out there.  And really, what better way to relax on a lazy Sunday than by knowing you’ve helped someone even in some small way.

For lounging on the beach, I chose some of my new favorites from ::Exodi::–the Lilian Tank and the Nadia Shorts.

AYUMI x 3

28 04 2009

A few weeks ago, Ayumi Shinn dropped a review item on the SL Bloggers Network in world, a cleavage enhancer that she designed and is selling in her store.  I’d never heard of her store, [AYUMI], before so I decided to go check it out.  She has some really cute stuff, but my favorite was the Button Up Shirt with it’s plunging necklace and thick belt underneath the bust line.  It comes in five colors, and she’s selling them for 150L each, or 250L for the fatpack.  Never one to pass up a deal, I grabbed the fatpack and decided to see what kind of looks I could throw together using this daringly sexy shirt.

I Ride the Subway at Night.

3 03 2009

Beulah Mills sent me a notecard awhile ago about a challenge to various fashion bloggers, and I was honored to be included.  The basic premise of this challenge is to take a piece of clothing from Ivalde and make it your own, so to speak. Having different people create different looks can really show the versatility of a design, and even an entire collection, such as the case here.  People tend to think Vintage when they think of Ivalde, but that doesn’t have to be the only word associated with it.  I am guilty of this, myself.  Before this challenge, I had been to Ivalde once or twice, but it wasn’t really my style.  I thought it was too Vintage for me.

For the challenge, I was asked to choose one outfit that the designer and woman behind Ivalde, Neferia Abels, would then send me for review.  I wandered around the store for a while and saw some very nice designs, but one dress caught my eye:  the Fiola dress.
 
First, I wanted to show you the dress just as it comes; it’s quite cute.

A little too short for my own personal taste, but it could easily be worn to a party or dance and even out on a date.  I can already think of one event I might even wear this to.  You can never have too many little black dresses in your inventory, really.

The design of the top is what caught my eye.  It has a crocheted like quality to it.  I love the intricate, lacy look of it.  It lends such flair to the dress.  Imagine my surprise when I found that it was in the 1970’s section.  This dress may be the only thing I like about the 70s!
 
After shooting the dress the way it was designed, it was time to make it my own. I do love to mix-and-match.
