Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 – #5

28 12 2009

The end of the year is a time to reflect back on the past and look forward to the future.  To that end, there are lots of lists…top ten moments, top ten books, etc.  Since I’ve not done a “Week of Lingerie” in quite some time, I thought it would be fun to take this week and look back at my favorite lingerie sets of 2009.  Starting today, I’ll showcase one set each day for five days. 

I’d like to preface this by saying that it is not my intention to imply one designer is better than another.  This is based strictly on MY personal taste and nothing else.  I admire the work of many designers, but to keep this list as short as possible I’m only focusing on those sets that made me say wow; the sets that inspired me to buy every available color; the sets that I wish I had in RL. 

We begin our countdown at #5 with Version 12 by WTW.

December Warmth

29 11 2009

Winter is fast approaching and that means the cold and snow will be here before I’m ready.  That is always the case in RL since winter is my least favorite season.  I don’t really care for snow.  However, Shiryu Musashi of Musashi-Do has created a coat so fabulous you won’t mind traipsing through the cold white stuff as you do your holiday shopping.

::Emjay:: Sash Tops – A Night Out

16 09 2009

Magen Jigsaw of ::Emjay:: was kind enough to send over a fatpack of her newest release: the Sash tops.  I was so excited when I saw the photo of this incredibly cute yet sexy top, I IM’d her right away to tell her so.  I couldn’t wait to try them on, and I was not disappointed.  Magen continues to get better with each release she puts out.  I absolutely love everything about this shirt: the asymentry of the hem, the way it wraps around the neck and leaves the shoulders bare and the lovely textured band underneath the bustline.  The Sash top is cute, yet sexy; feminine and flirty.  It’s form-fitting without really showing a lot of skin.  That is the best kind of sexy, don’t you think?  Shirts that make the imagination wander just a bit.
The ::Emjay:: Sash Tops come in seven different colors, and, being the adventurous sort, I thought I’d try to come up with a look for each color option.  I wanted to do this, mostly, to show you how versatile the tops can be and will be breaking my posts up accordingly.  Now, the top does come in Olive, and those of you who read this blog know that I don’t wear green.  The jury is still out on whether or not I’ll be able to pull something together for that one, but for today I will show you the first two looks I put together.
My favorite of the entire fatpack is the White shirt.

Swimsuit Spotlight – Baiastice

27 08 2009

Unless an incredibly fantastic bikini/swimsuit gets released in the near future, this will likely be my last post on swimwear for a while.  Not that we can’t enjoy a dip in the ocean all year long in our virtual paradise, because we can.  But the change of seasons in RL will have me focusing on my favorite season soon; autumn.  Until then, I’ve saved one of my favorite swimsuits for last:  Barcelona by Baiastice.

Bikini Spotlight: The Shore Shack

21 08 2009

The Colorblock bikini at The Shore Shack is just so damn “California Beach Girl” cute, I couldn’t stand it.  I had that “but this isn’t really my style” thought when I first saw it in a cute little shack on the beach.  However, the more I blog SL fashion, the more I realize I can’t really say that.  My style is always evolving and that’s the way it should be.  Fashion should be fun and I love trying on things I’m not terribly sure about and just falling in love with the look.  This particular bikini is testament to that.

Take The Plunge

4 08 2009

There are certain essential summer items one must have: sunglasses, swimsuits, shorts, etc.  Tank tops are definitely on that “essentials” list.  They can be dressed up or dressed down.  They can be comfy and casual or pretty and feminine.  Or, as is the case with the newest tank tops from Riddle, they can be sexy as hell.

Bikini Spotlight: Emjay

2 08 2009

While wading through my overstuffed “Blog This!” folder, I realized that I have a lot of bikinis.  I mean…a LOT.  Therefore, I’ve come up with a plan and it’s called the “Bikini Spotlight”.  I will do these little posts a few times a week, just to give you a quick glimpse of some of the fantastic swimwear I’ve purchased this season.  Also, I can point you in the right direction so you can buy some too!  See how fun?

The first spotlight is shining on Emjay.
