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:

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?”

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

I know I blogged this event a few weeks ago, but it was pointed out to me that I can’t use a picture that was created a year ago, even if it wasn’t used in last years campaign. It was mentioned I had probably aged a bit since last year and need to be up to date. I mean, isn’t one real world year equivalent to about four second life years? PBIP is a large campaign in Second Life, and the best part is it is free! The only motivation of the campaign is to create awareness of the issue. So here I am, helping to kick off this years PBIP month with this incredible picture by CEO of PBIP in SL, LovelyMiwako7399 Menna, one of my dearest of friends.

I volunteer for Relay for Life and for PBIP because this is such an important message to me personally. I have a mother who is a breast cancer survivor and my best friend, my sister in law, died of leukemia within nine months of being diagnosed. She left behind two children and my brother. Cancer is an awful thing, it ravages and tries to destroy everything in its path. According to Nancy Brinker of the Susan Komen Fund, “Ten million women around the world could die from breast cancer in the next 25 years. Cancer already claims twice as many lives as AIDS worldwide. At least seven million people die of cancer each year and close to 11 million new cases are diagnosed. That’s more than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.” Devastating numbers, which is obvious since so many people know at least one person who is combatting this or other cancers.

Whether you give money to a charity or not is unimportant, but by showing support, you could possibly strike a chord with just the right person, who will donate, and that’s just from snapping a picture. And this support helps. I recently read that in a study done by Washington University in St. Louis that they had found a genetic “code,” a “Cancer Genome Atlas” of types of breast cancers and the most aggressive type, the triple negative breast cancer mimics ovarian cancer. Doesn’t sound important, but it actually is very much so. Cancer is basically treated by trying different types of treatments until one is found that works. With this new information, potentially, the medical team can take a much more informed approach to developing cures for all patients by picking the right cure for the specific patient from the start. The ground-breaking study is still in its infancy, so only time will tell if its effective or not, but still it brings hope.

And I always want to stand on the side of hope, so here is my contribution for 2012 to the Pretty Bald in Pink Breast Cancer Awareness campaign.

Last day of vacation, Last suitcase. The week flew by, rested and knowing a certain Little Dragon friend, Draakje Dailey is having a birthday tomorrow, (Hint: I am sure she would LOVE a gazillion IM’s of well wishes!) I knew I needed to shop! Okay, so I’ll find any excuse to shop.The secret to productive shopping is look glam while staying comfortable and all three of these outfits definitely fit the bill. The first is an adorable sundress from Maitreya, scrumptious in color, sleeveless with a gorgeous beading neckpiece.

Eat.Pray.Shop.

The second choice is a transition outfit, one of those adorably chic outfits thats a perfect style for running a few errands before meeting up with friends for drinks or dinner. When tropical it is perfectly acceptable, in fact probably expected, that shorts are elegant enough for evening wear, especially when topped with the sophisticated top, both purchased at Kungler’s. I completed the outfit with one of the many choices of top rated jewelry available at Kungler’s extra.

Eat.Pray.Shop.

The third shopping, “must have” is this linen sundress from Chantkare. Living in the south, in a tropical climate, linen has always been a mainstay of my year round attire. and face it, it dresses up and down equally well. Because here is a simple sundress that is the epitome of chic elegant with the gathered skirt hem and since it is available at The Couturier’s Dock, it’s already 50% off! But if you waited too late, it might have sold out, but you can check out the other designer’s offer’s still available. Such as the beautyful “Caoimhe” makeup I am wearing from LovelyMi! But on all counts you better hurry, the next round will begin in about a week, so these deals will be gone forever!

Well shopping done, vacation nearly ended, I am going to wander back to the beach, squeaze out the last rays of sun while sipping a margarita by the swimming pool. I hope everyone has a gorgeous weekend!
