There’s bound to be something magnificent when two of Second Life’s best artist’s collaborate on a project, so you can imagine how excited I was when I found out Mila Tatham was creating a line of mesh and non-mesh outfits inspired by the portrait series of Riri Bazar. *SoliDea FoliEs** recently released this collection and it is incredibly unique and simply divine!
I am wearing the gorgeous Irina gown in mesh, it is actually demure, yet oh my yes, it is deep-veed down to there in a sexy saucy style. The gown is haltered and accentuated with a flowery shoulder strapping, and all the outfits are detailed with artfully designed, incredibly beautiful portraits. Always selling outfits complete, Mila has matching shoes, hat and the most incredible gloves! Always liking to mix it up, I chose to wear the “Colette” Bowler hat and the *SoliDea FoliEs** vintage eyewear with my Irina gown. Another beautiful choice is the Mathylda gown on the dress-makers dummy. It has a similarly pleasing line, a scrumptious color and the most adorable feathered cap! Since this is only two of the more than twelve different outfits Mila Tatham created, I know you will find the design that expresses your individuality to perfection!
Stop by *SoliDea FoliEs** and enjoy an art-filled beautiful week. Your taxi awaits! Taxi:
Much of this Donna Mills quote is so true of me. I try to limit my spending in SL by shopping only one or two days a week, picking up multiple items from my favorite designers and then spending another day or two taking blog pictures of them. One of my favorite stores to go to, when I want to find something special is always Gizza. Giz Seorn always creates from her heart, and it always seems her heart is attached to so many other inworld residents hearts because she so often creates our deepest desires.
While wandering her store the other day I ran across this gown, the flawless gown, and it so truly is! The one I purchased is this most passionate shade of Magenta, the a-line shape is simple and elegant enough to befit any royalty. The skirt is gently pleated with accentuating tendrils of silk falling from the sides of the bodice giving it such a textured 3 dimensional feel. The princess line of the bodice is enhanced with sweet, matching shaded flowers. A perfect 10 all alone, the only touches I added were the “Tulips” hair from Vanity Hair and this incredible jewelry “Scatteredhearts” from Finesmith. Perhaps different shades, but with so much precision and perfection, sometimes its sweet to add a little whimsy, it truly does mark the look as one’s own, no?
Gizza and Finesmith are currently running a clever Valentines contest “All You Need is Love” where you style an outfit in reds, whites, black or pinks, bedeck it with Finesmith Jewelry and create a photograph of it. The prize is 15,000L. So head over to the store and create your Valentine’s desire today. Taxi:
Finding myself a little backed up on the things I wish to blog, I emptied out my closets and started to shimmy into the different items to take some photographs. In the midst of the boxes and bags I found two gowns from Soraya Vaher of the Violator design house. Loving the eclectic nature of SL’s haute couture, I lovingly unboxed the pair and wow! The gowns are so exquisitely beautiful; it’s like finding a hidden treasure while combing the beach.
The gown shown above is the “Di Vernice” in red and gold. The material of the gown is exquisite and enfolds the body like liquid fire. The skirt is layered for added dimension and the entire ensemble includes a gold blossom jewelry that wraps within the skirting, up the bodice to the shoulder and finishes with a divine eye accentuating piece. Such a gorgeous gown, how could you not command attention while wearing it?
The picture below is the second little present I found in my closet and it is the “For My Lust” gown. When I put this on I instantly fell in love! The red and black silk is simply deific, the feathers heavenly! The banded waist hugs smoothly the sensuous area of the waist, the color blocking draws the eyes to a girl’s womanly curve. The neckline, shoulder and belt are hard-lined with craftily detailed jewelry that is independently works of art. The feathered wand and earrings are included and pull the entire look together. This is one of those gowns that upon donning, you just feel like a sensuous, desirable woman.
If you are looking for something to up your Glam factor, either of these offerings would fit the bill. Check out Violator today, I know you will simply love what you find! Taxi:
Love is in the air! Saint Valentine’s Day, such a romantic day for love, the first breath of morning filled with the hope that the sun will shine upon the hearts of lovers and fill their cold winter with the warm breezes of possibilities. How does such a day, a day filled with love in a world teaming with hate, echo so soundly across our planet? Because as simple humans, we crave acceptance, trust, worthiness and love. Love is what gives us our potential,our purpose on this Earth. From birth to death, love is the one consistency we search for, give, and receive.
So, on this day, I will dress for love and hope for possibilities. I have chosen to wear the limited edition (50 outfits) *SoliDea FoliEs* L’amour fou **. It’s shade a resplendent red in a sheer, wispily demure fabric. The skirt romantically ruffled, gives me the urge to dance, laugh and playfully blow kisses to the sun. Because on this day of all days, I will love and I am loved!
I wish you all a day filled with a content and overfilled hearts! If, like me, your heart is bound to the dreams of romantic possibilities, this is the dress for you and it is only available at Fashion Limited (formerly known as The Fan Limited Store). Stop by, grab your own, and I wish you a St Valentine’s Day filled with love, lovers and friendships. Have a beautyful weekend!
Finesmith Jewelry, A Quality above all others.
Recently I have had two contests in which Finesmith was a sponsor and I have to say how much fun it is when Yula Finesmith’s jewelry is a part. Her jewelry is so artistic it really leads to a creativity not found with other jewelry. For the Angel Dessous Semi’s we had to create a hobbit type character and I truly enjoyed this challenge so much! Not wanting to be the more common elf, I figured so many would take this route; I decided to be a female Balrog. With the Finesmith necklace, nails and bracelet, the jewelry blended very well with the outfit I created from several Angel Dessous pieces. Jewelry and clothes together looked like they were made for one another! Here is a picture if you are curious. Link:
The theme for the finals was Fire or Ice and I chose Ice. For this picture, I am wearing the Tiara Anna Sapphire wore for the recent Miss Virtual World. It is color change so I made it an icy blue and diamond. I added the Faberge Brooch to the tiara to make it a one of a kind piece. The earrings, Bracelet, wand and Necklace are from the White Blanco collection. All items fit to perfection the icy feel of the pale blue lingerie set I wore in the finals. The beautiful thing about Finesmith is it will dress up any outfit you choose to wear, so you are always the focal point of any gathering. If you get a chance, swing by Finesmith, I know you will love the treasures there! Taxi:
Angel Dessous and Finesmith, A Match Made in Heaven
Angel Dessous' "Fierce" dress with photo by Asia Rae <3
Everyone who knows me knows I love Angel Dessous. Not because of my love for Nando Korobase, Leandra Breen and Gina Beaumont, I met the store long before I met the owners. I love the versatility. I do a lot of mixing and matching, creative styling and editing, and the items at Angel Dessous are items I often incorporate into my blended styles.
It seems I am always buying either lingerie or gowns there, so when Maxes Loon asked me to take a snapshot for the upcoming More magazine, I decided to concentrate on the semi-casual, what I like to call the “cocktail party” line. The dress I am wearing is the new offering “Fierce” in raven and it is incredibly romantic with its lacily frilled mid-thigh skirting and sexily defining haltered bodice. The belt, it’s one of the reasons, I just love Angel Dessous, this belt will work with so many others styles also! When I donned the belt, it’s like getting one of those prizes in the box of cereal; you let out a big “whhhhoooawww” and just know you received a bonus gift with the incredibly gorgeous dress that you will also be able to use elsewhere. This dress is so incredibly fresh and Spring-ish it makes me look forward to sunny weather with a beautiful elegance!
If you get a chance, pop over to Angel Dessous and check out the incredible design lines there. I know you will like what you find, I always do! <3 Taxi:
