Rockin’ The Runway With Miamai

30 03 2010

Miamai is one of my favorite stores; ranking right up there with Maitreya when it comes to the level of my excitement about a release.  So when I got the notecard that the Spring Collection at Miamai had finally made its debut, you can just imagine how happy I was.  After racing home and logging in, I discovered that monica Outlander had gifted me with a review pack.  I literally jumped out of my chair, that’s how excited I was!  It was like xmas and my birthday all rolled into one little box. 

Of course, I dove in and started emptying boxes.  It’s all lovely, and while there are a few things that weren’t really me, most of it was and I’ll be blogging a lot of it over the next few weeks.  It seems only fair to start with the first item that caught my eye:  the Keyn Jacket in Silver.  It was totally love at first sight.

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.
