Stepping out!

September 23, 2010 Leave a comment

Every girl needs that perfect little outfit…the one that can go from day to night in a snap, all while staying classy and in-style.

That’s where this fabulous little frock from Hucci comes in! Paired with the short and sassy Journey Boots and some fun, slightly-chunky jewelry from fri.day, this ensemble is one you can wear to the mall or out with the girls. Of course, your hair has to showcase those cute new earings, so this style from Truth fits the bill just right!

Falling into fall…

September 21, 2010 Leave a comment

I spend every winter longing for the summer, and every summer longing for the winter – in either life. I guess it’s sort of that, “the grass is always greener” mentality. But, lucky for all of us, there’s a season just between summer and winter that’s just about perfect. Cool mornings and evenings and just-right days…perfect for layering hooded sweaters over vests, tees, or tanks.

This hooded sweatshirt from Reek is one of my favorites, and tossed over a worn-out, comfy tank from Atomic and a simple but cute button-shirt from So Many Styles it’s just perfect for the quickly-approaching autumn. A pair of slightly-grungy jeans from Armidi and some comfy slip-on shoes from Sand Shack Surf Co. make this ensemble casually cute!

…and thanks to DUnltd19, now I can be – no paparazzi, dramatic headlines, or great accomplishment required!  Anya Ohmai of ohmai! has really outdone herself on this fabulous dress – a flirty, feminine frock that somehow screams class, even though it’s composed of old copies of the New York Times.  Now this is what I call recycling!

Paired with the saucy Saffron Pumps from LeLutka, and some gorgeous new earrings from Paper Couture, this outstanding origami is something I don’t see me prying myself out of any time soon.  That is…unless it rains!

Leaving The Farm

There was no work to be found in his small town, and he told himself his dreams were far greater than that anyway.

They don’t really need me here.  Uncle John can run the plow. And I don’t think the bank will let us keep the back acres much longer.

I know I’ll miss Mom though, and the twins.

But I don’t know if anyone will miss me.

The Grand Opening of the gorgeous Renaissance Galleria sim was Friday, June 26th, 2009.  This sim is a shopping mecca for brides and grooms.  If you can’t find what you’re looking for there then you likely need it custom made.

By Alexander Fine Jewelry and Eros have teamed up in a beautiful building that you’ll enjoy shopping in even if you aren’t looking to walk down the aisle.  In conjunction with the opening of this new store, Alexandar Vargas has created a brand new set of stunning wedding jewels.  To compliment Siempre in Gold, I’ve chosen a lovely gown called Rayna in Ivory from Eros, which is just a hop and a skip away inside the same building at Renaissance.

I’m wearing the gold version of Siempre, which also comes in platinum, and the set has a fabulous bridal necklace that has been uniquely crafted with large, sparkling diamonds, very pretty long, dangling earrings, stunning bracelet cuffs, an elegant tiara, and both the women and men’s wedding bands.  Here is a better look at the bracelet cuff and ladies’ wedding band.

Siempre 6

Ahhh diamonds.  Don’t they make you smile?  They sure make me smile!  The Eros gown I’m wearing I must say I’m very impressed with.  The quality of the fabric and richness of texture helps me to show off Siempre to its fullest potential.

Rayna in Ivory has a tight-fitting, strapless bodice with elaborate gold threading covering the breasts stopping before reaching the waist and winding around to the low cut back.  The skirt moves easily, subtly flaring out from the waist, moving down in a gentle sway.  The hem is lined with the same pretty gold threading as the bodice and it sweeps the floor as is typical of formal gowns of this sort.  The creamy color of Rayna is classic.

Vargas Releases Rorschach Colors & ~Mystic Sky~ Opens

Look closely at this necklace.  What do you see?  I present to you Alexandar Vargas recent release Rorschach in Amethyst and Londonblue.  For those who don’t know, Rorschach is a psychological inkblot test in which the patient looks at a picture and tells the psychiatrist what he or she sees.  Each person looking at the same inkblot might see something completely different from the next and what you might see can be analyzed by a professional to determine the state of your emotional or mental health.  Leave it to the clever Alex to create jewelry in the form of colorful inkblots.  I shall tell you what I see because I’m unafraid to be psychologically analyzed by the fashion community at large.  *chuckles*

I wonder if you’ll be able to see this too, but I see the most adorable long-eared puppy dog with his tongue hanging out.  And if I look again then I see a mighty spider queen about to give birth to a zillion baby spiders!  I think I like the first one better doctor.  o.O

Rorschach is really a fascinating collection as is typical of Alex’s work.  Did I say that like I’m a fan of the mysterious AV?  Haha…well…that’s because I am!  This set comes with the necklace, two dangling earrings, two cuffs for the wrists and a very noticeable ring for very pretty hands.  It comes in Amethyst and Londonblue as you see here but also in the store you’ll find Black Opal, Amber, Pink Opal, Raw Citrine and Ruby.

While I was trying to decide which dress to wear with Londonblue, I decided to pay a visit to a brand new store called ~Mystic Sky~ and the owner happened to be there.  It was such a pleasure to meet Skyler John that I decided I would feature two of her new gowns in this post.  I found her friendly and very helpful, just the type of place you don’t mind spending your hard-earned lindens.

~Mystic Sky~ is where you can go if you’re looking for very pretty medieval-style gowns or the type of dresses you would roleplay in.  The amount of sims on the grid where Skyler’s dresses would be appropriate is endless.  As you can see above, the Serendipity gown in Blue is just gorgeous.  If it looks to be whisper soft in the picture, believe it.  It flutters gently around your hidden legs as you walk.  You feel utterly feminine with the strapless, bust-uplifting bodice and flowing, standalone sleeves on the arms.  The skirt flows clear to the floor, completely covering your feet.

The gown I chose to wear with the Amethyst Rorschach is called Ella in Plum and it’s a classic dress that has a simple appeal with subtle details sure to make a lady roleplaying in the medieval era smile.  I love the way it shows off the shoulders and hugs the breasts and waistline before moving down to the skirt that hugs the hips with soft, flowing fabric and an intricate though subdued path of patterned fabric down the front to frame a clearly medieval-style belt worn at the start of the hips and turning into a sash of sorts.  It extends to the ground along with the skirt.  Ella can be worn with or without a gorgeous full cloak.  Take a look and see how the amethyst Rorschach compliments it when not wearing the cloak.

Runway’s Last Port of Call

August 11, 2008 Leave a comment

On Sunday, Runway Magazine hosted it’s Last Port of Call End of Summer Revue to celebrate the Summer Season as it comes to a close. The venue was breathtaking, set in a picturesque valley with a raging waterfall spraying breezy refreshment from the hot sun. Featuring cruisewear from the salons of Baiastice by Sissy Pessoa and Jador by Ziamela Loon, along with luxurious jewelry selections from Jewelry by Alexandar Vargas, skins by Alinee Jewel of J&J Skins, and the much anticipated new line from Stiletto Moody, Generation 2, we were treated with beautiful models expertly walking a winding runway through the crowd.

The models casted for this spectacular, visually pleasing show were mostly Runway Kidz! But that’s not surprising is it? 😉 They were: Cherie Parker, EmmZ Tzara, Giela Delpaso, Isabel Brocco, Kryptonia Paperdoll, Laura18 Streeter, Nemi McCoy, Payton Heron, Poptart Lilliehook, Scarlett Niven, SerinaJane Loon, and Summer Deadlight. Despite the lag, all of them did a wondrous job of walking what looked to many of us to be a difficult runway. But they made it look easy.

I thoroughly enjoyed this event. Thank you Maggie Mahoney and Molly Dench. It was a hit and the perfect way to sum up the Summer 2008 Season of SL Fashion.
