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.

Hurry! This Kyoot-ness Won’t Last

2 04 2010

Very rarely do I blog something the same day it lands in my inventory.  Between my SL and rl work schedules, I’m lucky if I can get something blogged the same week.  But because this fantastic dress by Kyoot is an exclusive 50L Friday item, it had to be done today.  And it had to be done today because YOU can only get it today.  And believe me, you want this dress.

Fade To Grey

12 03 2010

Most people probably don’t think of grey when you mention spring, instead calling the brighter shades of nature to mind.  However, one of my favorite things about spring is the beginning of storm season.  Those tumultuous grey skies, cool rain, and the light show that is nature at her best, or worst depending on your view.  And because I love the color grey for spring looks, I was delighted to see that some of the newest releases from L`Abel were indeed made in this lovely shade.

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.

Urban Comfort

1 12 2009

This Friday, December 4th, my friend and DJ extraordinaire Maht Wutys will be spinning a 26-hour set for charity.  Yes, you read that right.  26 consecutive hours of music, and all of the tips he receives will be donated to Heifer International.  I’ve put the promo poster for the gig at the end of this post for those that might be interested in stopping by to hang out for a bit and support a good cause.  For those who donate, Maht will have a special box full of goodies donated by some of the fabulous designers we all know and love.  I will also have some special items to hand out to those who donate while I’m there trying to keep the DJ from falling asleep.  I’ll blog more about those things later this week.  But since I have the overnight shift (7 p.m. to 3 a.m. slt), I decided to put together something comfy to wear that night.

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.

Cocktails, Anyone?

8 09 2009

Since buying the fatpack of the Shanti shoes by Maitreya Gold, I’ve decided to try to come up with an outfit for every single color in said fatpack, even the ones I would not normally wear.  A lofty goal, perhaps, but as I am ruined for regular avatar feet now, I don’t see me taking these off for a while.  Why not play around with variety then?  It is what this blog is about, after all.  For today’s look, I started with the Shanti shoes in Cerulean.
 
I love the color Cerulean, and the word is just fun to say really.  For this pair of the Shanti shoes, I wanted something elegant but not too formal.  A little cocktail dress that was glamourous and sexy, but not over the top. The Soft Ruffle Dress from Baiastice turned out to be the perfect match.
