The quote is so sad, and yet so true. I think style is something in ones genetic makeup, you either have it or you do not. It is noted in a person who just has a natural knack for colors, materials, and the positive way of mixing them together but, in others, they just never seem to “get it right” or, at the least, like me, have to dig deep, and work harder to get there. I think in its base sense it is controlled by whether you are prone to thinking with the left or the right side of the brain. The wonderful thing about the brain though is the fact that you DO indeed have both sides. And you can use the influence of either side with practice.

I wasn’t going to say anything, but I’ve been told a couple of times, I need to offer more guidance to beginning models, so I will. I recently judged something with the theme of “Cubism” and though I know it is a difficult to interpret subject, I went away more than a little disappointed. Cubism at the most basic is to take a natural form and fragment it into something abstract. Period. How do I know? I researched it, I researched the words, I researched images. Took maybe 5 minutes to figure where I would have gone with this theme.

You get out of your Second Life Modeling career, exactly what you put into it. So if what you strive to do is lead, and create something bigger than yourself, in a virtual sense, the first step is always, stop and think. Where do I want to end up, how do I get there? period. Start with a concept, build the steps to how to succeed. It’s not like these “themes” happen every day, so when you DO have them, take a little time to get it right. I’m not talking about the pics of a blog, sure, like my pics here, the stylings need to be simple, because you are bringing a set item(s) to the attention of the viewer. I am only speaking of the mix and match theme projects we get asked to do for mags, or contests, or, like in the above “cubism”, a casting or class graduation.

As an example, the winter elf from yesterday. I created a look, and sent a pic to Skip, so he would know what was coming. I hate to show it, but here it is: Link: But then, I sat back, thought, what a load of crap. So I did it right, where do I want to end up, what do I want this winter elf to look like? How do I get there? And then went about putting the elements together, in what I hope was a more pleasing way. And yes, sometimes, it takes time. But why bother, if you aren’t going to give it your best? Jumps off Soap Box.

YAY! And the take from, there always is one. Don’t be a hater because someone always seems to be styled perfect all the time, they actually can’t help the way they are anymore than you can, its genetics. Use their styles to learn, network and learn from them WHY they put certain aspects of their styles together that way. And really, there is no penalty for researching the style you want to create, especially on theme based castings. Sometimes, even when I don’t have a theme to style, I research and pull from the Internet pics I like, styles I like, items that catch the eye, or “things to try” and pull them aside. Just ask Skip, sometimes I send him four or five pics with a “do you want to do any of these?” before I style. It’s okay to borrow imagination, just add your own flourish to it.

I know, this is a long one. I hope you read parts of it and took out what you wanted. If its all rubbish, then I am sorry to have wasted your time, but I hope, for at least a few of you, it was a help. I just want to leave you with the words of Coco Chanel. “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” For a taxi to L’Accessoire’s just click on their logo found on the right side of the page. See? right side rather creatively has made it easier for you to get there from here.

L’accessoires is having another of their, *ahem, events. As a Second Life model, I have to admit, one of my fave things is those contests where you have to create a new style by mixing and matching items. I typically find it to be a fun challenge that is much more exciting than wearing off the rack and submitting a picture for a contest. This is one of the reasons I run to these events that are all around the grid. It’s amazing the looks you can create from just one random object you happen to find. (I’ll show a little more of this next week) This event in particular seems to have a ton of really cool random items! I won’t say more, as I said a few days ago, I am just picture blogging this week, so here are some of the treasured finds I picked up last week at L’Accessoires. I mean, whats not to love, right? It’s all about shoos, bags, hats and any other items that can be termed accessory. I’m hoping next round they add a few fellers to the inventory, thats one of the best accessory’s I think. YAY! I hope you check them out and find yourself some extra inventory too. I love this place so much the SLURL was given a permanent place on my “Last Known SLURLS” page.

Lonely.Hearts.Club.Band.

okay, okay. So I snoogled a piece of a title from an awesome classic rock album. Thank you Sergeant Pepper and the Beatles. I hope it will make sense. I never can tell when I get in this mood, sometimes I ramble, sometimes, when I am lucky, I get it just right. I woke up worried last night. I don’t know why, it just happens that way sometimes. It bothers me that we, well some of us anyway, walk through life with tunnel vision. We wander halls, grocery stores, sidewalks, never bothering to look at the faces around us. It’s as if we are scared to read the graffiti, the words written on their faces. “Life. Friend. Care. Sister.” No matter the content there, we glaze our eyes and our hearts so that we remain uncommitted to the passing, unencumbered, no time wasted. What if, by saying “hallo, how are you?” and actually listening to the answer, we learn someone or something new? What if, by forgetting the minutes lost, we help someone, even if its just by showing we care? What if, in that small moment in a life of years, you meet your soulmate? And all that useless graffiti becomes rock solid compound words? “Life.Time” “Friend.Ship” “Care.Free” “Sister.Hood” Wouldn’t the world be just a little brighter place in which to live?

Moving kind of slow, which is typical after a perfect weekend, but I wanted to mention a new store, L’accessoires. Love em or hate em, a good model always needs accessories to kick their look up a notch. It’s what separates the cleverly devised from the blandly ho-hum. And just because you throw a hat, or necklace or earrings on, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best choice for the outfit. So next time you need to style to the nines for an event, play dress up. Cycle through several shoe, jewelry, or any other accessories, don’t just run to the old fave, you will be surprised how finding the perfect accessory can create the perfect appearance.

And luckily, for the time constrained models like me, L’accessoires has opened its door. I popped in last week and within 5 minutes purchased a top, three hats, a pair of bangles and sunglasses. Done and run, it doesn’t get any better than that. For more information, I fudgied the information from my dear friend and fellow model, MeiMei Shui’s blog and included it below. I had so much fun at the shop, I included the taxi for you! Enjoy! Taxi:

Ameno, Why wear Blah for boots?

Mayhem Seetan of Azoury has always had one of a kind gorgeous styles, and her shoe line is no exception to the rule. I just love them! I love their creative elements (see this heel?) I love the colors and materials, I just love them!This boot, Ameno has a scrumptious Gold “backbone” styled heel and the boot itself is a gorgeous buckled leather. The style works well for casual attire as well as kicked back leathers and latex stylings.

This second pic, also Azoury, is La Tenue Eden. I was so excited when my best little dragon and friend, Draakje asked if I would pose with her! We are wearing the gorgeous new Eden mix and match pieces. The outfits comes in so many colours, like black, brown, green and violet for the skirt and black, blue, green, red, orange, gold and violet for the shirt. And dont forget the adorable ballerina shoes in the colours black, orange, violet, gold, green, red and blue. What ever colours blend well with your skin tone, I know Azoury has it! Stop by Azoury today and pick out some of the wonderful styles and shoes! Taxi:
