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.

Waterfall

28 03 2010

While going through my inventory last night, I realized that I’d meant to blog the Waterfall gown from Sascha’s Designs last week.  Alas, my rl work schedule got in the way.  But I decided to go ahead and blog it now because better late than never, right?  That should so be the tagline for this blog.

Add My Name To The List

17 03 2010

I’m taking a short break from the Clothing Fair posts to share the news with all of you.  It’s official:  I have been + blacklisted +. 

We all knew it would happen eventually. 

I’ve been watching Gauge Lavilles’ store since it first opened, waiting ever so patiently for him to design the one shirt that called my name. Or in this case, maybe screamed is a better term.  And when I saw this particular shirt released this week, I knew it was the one that would get me + blacklisted +.

Clothing Fair: Exploring New Cultures With Milky House

16 03 2010

Another great thing about Clothing Fair is being exposed to designers/styles that you wouldn’t normally see everyday in your second life.  It’s a great opportunity to find great new designers and see what’s going on fashion wise in the lands outside of our comfort zone.  And that is exactly what happened to me when I stumbled into the Tokyo SIM and found myself standing in the Milky House store.  This mini kimono was so cute; I just had to have it.

Dark Bride

8 03 2010

I’ve never really had any intention of doing the SL wedding thing.  Not that there’s anything wrong with it, obviously.  It’s just not something I see in my future.  Because of that, I can’t say I pay much attention to wedding dress releases.  Oh, I look at the pictures when I see them, but that’s about the extent of my interest.  That was, until this weekend when I caught a glimpse of the new wedding gown from RFyre.

It was instant Want with a capital W.  It was gorgeous and it was black; how could I not own that?  I simply had to have it.  And since I don’t plan on actually getting married in it, I decided to blog it for those out there looking for a wedding gown with a dark flair.  Sabine is, quite simply, exquisite.  I know I have said this before, but Rayven Pennyfeather continues to blow me away with her talent.  I can’t even fathom the amount of time and energy this took to create.  I am in awe.

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.

Elin & The Fury

25 01 2010

In case you haven’t heard, LacieCakes has reopened with a brand new build.  The grand opening was this past weekend, and I was honored when Lacie Chambers asked me to do some special photos for the new sim.  There is a really great movie theatre in the new neighborhood and when she asked me to create a photo that looked like a scene from a movie, I was really intrigued.  I love doing fun artsy stuff and I decided to feature her Elin jewelry set in the shots.
