The Couturier's Dock

Salimar Luxury District

invito

Salimar Art SIM, is a site dedicated to digital art, literature and poetry. Our goal is sharing the immersive artistic experience with people not only from Second Life but also from the World Wide Web. Our effort is focused on creating a virtual place to meet and exchange for all those creative people who use the metaverse as a medium. We are honored to host in the “SaliMar Room’s” a stable group of international artists of outstanding value. SaliMar Art Sim** is created, owned and built by Mila Tatham (aka Salima Venditti) & rodroguez Imako (aka Andrea Roberto Dosi).

Salimar is also known for its work with the fashion industry and has carried the very successful event, “The Couturier’s Dock.” So with the new year we are happy to announce the creation of a new concept, The Salimar Luxury District. This Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 12PM SLT, you will find the grand opening of a new experience in shopping and the celebration of the opening of the Paradise Circus Gallery of Buffy Holfe, one of SL’s most renowned digital artists. Link: portfolio: We’ve spent the month polishing the fixtures and setting up inventory. Gathering together designer’s with an undeniable quality of merchandise, artists with an amazing gift for virtual art and a troupe of models with a flair for style. The only thing missing? You. Come watch the enthralling fusion of art, music and fashion.

For the event, we challenged our Second Life top tier models, Anna Sapphire, Blackliquid Tokyoska, Calima Dufaux, Devine Hunt, Draakje Dailey, Natzuka Miliandrovic, Vikeejeah Xevion, and hostess Caoimhe Lionheart to style. We sent them exploring the Salimar Luxury District, the mission, each model must create a mix and match style using parts of outfits from some of Second Life’s most prestigious designers, AD Creations, Blackliquid, Baoba, BeloD, Finesmith, FP Poses, Gizza, HMAEM, Le Penderie de Nicole, Les Petite Details, Loovus Dzevavor, LovelyMi, SoliDea FoliEs, and Violator. Come watch these models runway show their unique styles while enjoying the heart thumping tunes of SL’s sensational DJ, Riri Bazar.

The best part? We are having a lottery and one lucky attendee in the audience will win all of the outfits the models are wearing! How’s that for a take from? Runway models, Art, Music, creative designers and a grand prize. What more could you ask for? Well, looky there, I am so excited to see you all, I even included the taxi: Taxi:

Ambergris.And.Madame.Tussauds.

Ambergris.And.Madame.Tussauds.

Life always seems to be about thin lines, doesn’t it? There is a thin line between love and hate. Empty and full. Madness and genius. My mind travels far in a day, my body seldom follows. They are incompatible to say the least, I have the mind of a world traveler, but the body and heart to stay hidden from the world. It is one of my greatest tortures. On days like today, it is best to hide. When I write, I misspell the simplest of words by transposing letters. I think with clarity but it is lost between the brain and fingers. With each misspell, erase, rewrite slower, I slip into sullen madness. There is no explanation, I know not the trigger, I just tell my self, as I oft say when I am here, “you can’t cure crazy.” I slip lower until I am unseen, resting, shielded from the worlds view. Will you wait for me, my friends? I often think not, but I surely hope so.

Ambergris.And.Madame.Tussauds.

Take from? And yes, even today there is one. What’s the relation between Ambergris and Madame Tussauds? Ambergris is a waxy substance found floating in or on the shores of tropical waters, it is believed to originate in the intestines of the sperm whale. But in itself it still has purpose and is used for beauty, it is used in perfume. Perhaps at one point in our existence we are all a blob of wax, floating in the bowels of some heavenly body. Life gently shapes and moulds us to the beautyful creatures we become. And beautyful we DO become, each and every one of us unique and gorgeously defined, worthy of any exhibition in Madame Tussauds. Bet you wondered how I was going to get there from here.

I.Dreamt.of.You.

I.Dreamt.of.You.

I used to watch so many old movies, I don’t really know why, I suppose in my simple way, I wished I could live in such a simple time.The most amazing thing to me about old movies is all of the smoking and drinking they did. I guess in my “enlightened” education, I find it a little shocking that smoking looked so glamorous in the Golden Age of Hollywood. I have never smoked, nor have I ever wanted to, but its kind of nice to think that in those days, they trusted their viewer to be able to “see” actors smoking and not run down to the nearest convenience store and buy a pack of cigarettes. What has become of our world? I read the other day that you can’t purchase a “super-sized” soda at a McDonalds in New York City. I don’t drink soda, but I’d like to think I am grown up enough to choose whether I want one or not. Have we become such an obtuse nation in the United States we have to be told what is good or bad, or what we can or can’t eat, drink, or inhale? Kind of a sad commentary of a nation, isn’t it?

I.Dreamt.of.You.

I suppose it started with the lady who sued McDonalds and won a couple million dollars because she dropped her coffee in her lap and it burned her. I may not be the sharpest knife in the kitchen, but I don’t have to have it written on a coffee cup “this is hot.” And honestly, on these matters, I tend to think, I wish I had thought of that first, I’d be rich, if I wasn’t too embarrassed at my own stupidity to sue. All of this “deep thought” subsequently reminded me, did you know, the most common emotion when you dream is anxiety or negative emotion? Figures. No wonder I have a hard time sleeping at night. I suppose when you live your life with things labeled in black and white “dangerous hot,” or “health hazard” or “do not touch” or my favorite “don’t use the hair dryer while taking a bath” your bound to be a little anxious about bedtime. Right?

Take from? Yep, here it is. I’d like to say blame the attorney’s, but thats just too close to the truth and my take froms are usually a small note of what I want to take from my thoughts. So the real take from is, we are all instilled with some form of common sense, why don’t we just stop the madness and take back our adulthood? Do we really need to be told what is good or bad for us? I hope not! Slurls are on the “Last Known Page.”

A hopefully helpful reminder whilst you are out Christmas shopping. The Couturier’s Dock still has a few items in stock, ready for purchase! This incredible jacket from *SoliDea FoliEs*, the “Marilyn” pant from Orage Creations and this scrumptious “Campbell” dress from Chantkare (can’t you just see it with some campy leggings and cute boots?) are still in small supply, so hurry up they won’t last long. The pose with the Chantkare dress is also available and is called “Wings” from Lib Descent. It is actually a couples pose, but he thoughtfully includes them without poseballs so you can use them as singles. I can’t wait for Spring, wouldn’t this be the perfect pose for a “bird in the hand?”

We do not refill stock so don’t miss out on some of the incredible finds at the Couturier’s Dock. We purposely kept our designer’s list limited to some of the designers we feel have niched their own genre of fashion so the items available to you will be unique, limited to lots of 35 units, will be affordable at a price range of 50 to 500 Lindens (50% off the main store price) and we hope what you find will be a treasured addition to your Second Life inventory.

The Couturier's Dock *SoliDea FoliEs* has included the “Winter Flower” shoos that perfect match the hat and scarf released at Fashion Limited

This round of The Couturier’s Dock will be closing Sunday November 18th 2012 around 12PM SLT so don’t miss out! Many of the items have expired by selling their 35 units, but there is still some great items to be found! I think the “Winter Flower” shoos add an incredible dimension to the “Winter Flower hat and scarf”, don’t you? I simply added the still divine *SoliDea FoliEs* “Noir II” outfit to give it a hothouse haute couture feel. So take a minute and pop on over! Taxi:

The Couturier's Dock What a playfully adorable romper called “Scarlett” that Pichi has included this round!

For the holiday season it’s always nice to have items available for all types of different festivities. I wore the “Scarlett” romper with a T-shirt and simple boots, but it would look equally chic with a pair of leggings, short jacket or sweater, making it completely inline with a typical current fashion trend of wearing shorts with leggings. Imagine this adorable outfit with a nice winter cap, some woolly leggings and a trim little pair of ice skates. You’d add the oo-la-la to any upbeat activity.

The Couturier's Dock Even little dragons (Draakje Dailey) look simply adorable in White Widows “Anna” skirt and the exceptional mesh nails (in 4 colors!) “Rex” from Mad’

I absolutely fell in love with both the White Widow skirt and the Mad’ nails. Both designers items are high quality and a perfect addition to any model or fashionista’s wardrobe as they both play well with others on the toughest of styling assignments. All items are still unique items from the designer and will always be sold at half the price of similar items instore, so come on over and check out these and the other limited inventory found at the Couturier’s Dock. I know you will be glad you did! xo
