Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 – #2

31 12 2009

As we near the end of this lingerie countdown, it’s gets harder and harder to make decisions.  There were so many great releases in lingerie this year, and I probably have them all.  It gets especially hard when you love more than one set from a particular designer.  In the end, though, there is always that one set that stands out above the rest.  #2 on our countdown is Lianna by Reasonable Desires.

Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 – #3

30 12 2009

While I spend most of my time on the darker side of fashion, there is a girly, princess side to my personality that will not be ignored.  Never is this more obvious than when I see pretty lingerie with ribbons and bows.  Number 3 on our countdown of Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 is Jolene by Blowpop.

Be Seen.

19 11 2009

Whether you’re walking the red carpet or attending a grand ball, wearing the most fabulous dress is a necessity.  And for this month’s MDR Anniversary Party, we’re rolling out the red carpet with the help of one of my favorite dress designers:  Sascha Frangilli of Sascha’s Designs.

I’ve blogged about Sascha’s wonderful designs before (here and here, to be exact) and I’m thrilled that she agreed to be our Affiliate of the Month for Novemeber.  Sascha has graciously provided us with one of her fabulous designs to give away to all of our guests for FREE.  I thought I’d show you that lovely dress, and two more of my favorites by this very talented and versatile dress designer.  First up is my newest purchase, Trouble.

::Emjay:: Sash Tops – Inspired By Fall

21 09 2009

For my second post about the ::Emjay:: Sash Tops, I wanted to do some fall inspired looks.  The top comes in both beige and brown, and I thought it could be fun to celebrate the transitioning seasons by pairing this lovely top with some more traditional autumn items.  For the beige top, I knew immediately what I wanted to do.

Miss Blaize

8 06 2009

Burlesque is just inherently sexy, isn’t it?  I love everything about it, but especially the costumes and one of my favorites comes from Reasonable Desires.  I blogged about that here.  When Austie Pegler passed me review copies of their newest release the other night and told me that it was a burlesque outfit, I couldn’t wait to put it on.  I was not disappointed.  It comes in 6 different colors and each one has a different name.  My favorite is the blue one: Miss Blaize.

The Life of a Lingerie Model, Part 2

6 06 2009

A few weeks ago, IndigoBlue Dagastino of Seldom Blue contacted me about shooting some photos of her new line of lingerie called Kira.  Of course I jumped at the chance, not only because I love lingerie, but because this set is named for one of my oldest and dearest SL friends, Kira Lebed.  I was even more thrilled that Kira and her lovely partner Katia Hartshon were my models for that shoot.  You can see some of the photos from that in the entryway to Seldom Blue.  It’s really very cool to have your work on display in a store.  And, lucky me, IndigoBlue Dagastino was nice enough to gift me with two colors of the Kira set, Nude and Lilac.  After shooting every color Kira comes in, I have to say they are all exquisite, but these two colors stood out the most for me. 

One of the places I shot Kira and Katia’s photos was at Chouchou, Chouchou.  I am absolutely enamored with shooting lingerie there for some reason, especially in the bird cage.  I think it’s an interesting concept shoot, and for the blog I decided to take the Kira lingerie back there.  Only this time, I got to be both model and photographer.  Lucky me!
