Vintage fun with [Gos]

[Gos] having their debut at UBER with a wonderful and sexy peep toe – “Bianca”!

“Zip into Bianca, an alluringย variation ofย the classic peeptoe platform pump. Bianca features a high stiletto heel embellished by a zipper with circular pull.ย You will be spoilt for choice with Bianca’s 55 colour options.” , [Gos] describe their amazing new release. And I really have to agree. I was not able to snap 55 colors without photo bombing you all but I at least wanted to show some colors beside the black ones I used for the pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰

[Gos] – “Bianca” Boutique HUD

Like we know it for all the new releases of [Gos], “Bianca” includes 3 colour HUDs – Boutique, Blueberry, and Metallics. The Boutique HUD includes 21 current, in-season colours perfect for any fashionista, the Blueberry HUD includes 28 colours which coordinate with clothing from Blueberry, and the Metallics HUD include 6 metallics which will have your feet shining. Each HUD also includes 5 sole, 2 metal, and 3 lining options.

 

[Gos] – “Bianca” Metallics HUD

“Bianca” includes fits for Maitreya Lara, Belleza and Slink High feet.

 

When I unpacked my new “Bianca” heels I instantly had an idea, how I wanted them to style. The peep toe did shout ‘pin up’ at me but the cool zipper at the back of the heel said ‘no way you will wear those with a cute dress!’

I wanted to dome rockabilly like style with a cool vintage car at a gas station… and there they were again… the problems if you have something particular in mind and no idea where you find your accessories, clothes or the location.

Ok the look first. To give the heels enough room and to fit the style idea I need some 3/4 long pants – preferred used blue jeans with a tight fit. I do have a ton of jeans, but believe it or not either they are loose fit, bell-bottom style or long down to the ground *grumbles*

The search for that special type of jeans madeย  me work through all my denim/jeans pants and I was able to decrease my inventory numbers significantly *snickers*. It is really funny how much stuff yo find if you dig deep enough in your inventory :p

There they are! My “Ronee Boyfriend Jeans from GizzA. Recently GizzA got re-branded to Giz Seorn and I have to post some of her amazing new releases soon, but some things you simply can’t let go ๐Ÿ˜‰ Next I first thought for a white shirt, or maybe a white cool sporty blouse but I did not find the right one and so i changed my mind and thought even more towards the cool kids rockabilly side ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes, that looked so much better when I tried the “Kara Vest” from DE Designs. Now I just missed some typical cat eye shaped vintage glasses and since I wanted to go for a gas station for my pictures maybe some fingerless gloves, just in case I want to so some car mechanic pics ๐Ÿ˜‰

While I was looking for gas stations, I remembered a little retro looking one at Netherwood. So I just had to rez the cute vintage pickup from Wetcat and ready to shoot! The “Shelby” pickup has some inbuilt poses, but I just used the one on the first picture. for the other pictures I played around with poses from Foxity and ALIUD. I do not know why but vintage or even more Rockabilly shoots always are fun as I love listen to that kind of music while I shoot and edit my pictures to get in to the right mood ๐Ÿ˜‰

Speaking of… I would like to close todays post with some lyrics, that I just heard, while I was typing and which belong to one of my favourite rockabilly songs… the little bass guitar solo in there was one of the first I learned when I started to play bass :p

Stray cat strut, I’m a ladies cat
I’m a feline Casanova, hey man that’s that
Get a shoe thrown at me from a mean old man
Get my dinner from a garbage can

Don’t go crossing my path

Autumn Mood with an Artistic Touch

Arts in Hats Tres Bau 7

Today, it again will be a post with lots of pictures, as I again could not decide which ones to use for the post so you will get all of them ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was starting to style today with one of the new hats of Tres Beau for Art in Hats. Kimmera Madison, owner and designer of Tres Beau, created 2 wonderful hats for the event and the “A Feather in your Cap” hat immediately caught my heart.

The black hat is textured with a wonderful detailed fabric. The asymmetric shape totally is my cup of tea, as I like the non even things a lot ๐Ÿ˜‰ The hat is decorated with amazing colored feathers, held by some delicate gems, which connect them to the hat.

When I first put it on, I had to IM Kimmera and asked her, if I have to behave or if I may go wild with it :p .

Her answer just was “Wow me!” Oh dear… going wild is one thing but wow someone who I adored for years and who I respect highly… that is going to be a hard task…

So I was thinking about, what Tres Beau means to me and about the wonderful woman who is behind it. So I was certain about elegance and as well chic but as well about art and high quality.

When I was thinking about what I could wear to the hat, Asia Rae contacted me and surprised me with one of her own designs. When I tried it on it immediately formed an idea in my mind, about what I wanted the pictures look like.

The strappy top and the wonderful short skirt, were the perfect match and as well elegant but also modern and trendy. So the “Sona” outfit became the choice for the day ๐Ÿ˜‰

ย Now the hard choice of shoes was coming up. When I started looking through my shoes I realized that I recently got incredible artistic shoes from Maichore and i tried on the new “Piotr” heels for the slink high mesh feet. With the totally extraordinary shape of the huge heel, the filigree meshwork around the foot and the amazing little details, those shoes were right perfect for today’s look!

Now last but not least I had the desire to add some “Wicca twist” and looked or makeup when I kinda stumbled over the “Maiden Face Mask” from DE Designs. Having this mystical half mask I felt the need for something special for the hands as well, that gives the whole style a certain touch. The whole look already turned into a warm autumn kind of style and I decided to use the “Dryad Hands” from Figment. Those turned my hands into tree parts and the idea for the scenery was born in exact that moment ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the hairstyle I needed something that goes well with the hat and as well does underline the little smart touch of the look. The choice fell on the new “Izzy” hair from EMO-tions. The hair at the moment is sold at the On9 event until the 4th of November when the actual round closes. With the long “braided braid” coming over just one shoulder I could perfectly balance out the asymmetric hat without dragging away the focus tooย  much.

One last look… yes that look really matched everything I was thinking about ,when I started to imagine what I would like to go for the “A Feather in your Cap” hat from Tres Beau!

Wicca’s Wardrobe: Black Magic Butterflies

Solidea, E-CLipse, Cliche 001

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young witch, she practiced white magic and tried to do good to all the creature that sought her help. When she became the age of marrying she wasย courted by three handsome young men, a count who promised her power if she helped his county to prosper,ย  a rich man who promised her wealth if she saw to his business with her skills and a wizard who promised her everything and asked for nothing.

Whom would you have taken? The wizard, right? Well thatโ€™s what the young witch did,ย  and soon regretted. He wanted her powers to make them the most powerful magicians that ever lived. She did not yield to the temptations of dark magic, but the disappointment made her magic turn darker. And she left.

So she went to see the rich merchant, but he was a vain man and grudged her choosing the wizard first. The count acted just the same. Bitter with the rejection her magic went almost black. But it was not in her to do harm and punish the men that hurt her.

She looked around and saw that the county was a really beautiful place, and a pretty butterfly even made her smile. So she decided to try to live a happy life on her own. Going far away. And the butterflies followed her, they did not want to live with the count, the rich merchant and the wizard. Ever since, there was not one butterfly to be seen in the county.

“Wicca’s Raven”

Kyra Camel, owner and designer of Baboom and as well a wonderful friend, gave me a great honor, with dedicating am incredible gown to me. The “Wicca’s Raven” dress is an amazing not symmetric outfit with just one arm and one leg covered. The bodice is made of stunning lace and all the feathers really give the whole creation a wonderful elegant touch with the little artistic edge I love so much ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought a long time about something special, that I could add to this post and as I was looking again and again on the pictures the raven poem of Edgar Allan Poe, one of my favourite writers. came to my mind ๐Ÿ™‚

The Raven

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`’Tis some visitor,’ I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door –
Only this, and nothing more.’

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; – vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow – sorrow for the lost Lenore –
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore –
Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me – filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
`’Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door –
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; –
This it is, and nothing more,’

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
`Sir,’ said I, `or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you’ – here I opened wide the door; –
Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, `Lenore!’
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, `Lenore!’
Merely this and nothing more.

Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
`Surely,’ said I, `surely that is something at my window lattice;
Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore –
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; –
‘Tis the wind and nothing more!’

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door –
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door –
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,’ I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore –
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!’
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.’

Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
Though its answer little meaning – little relevancy bore;
For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door –
Bird or beast above the sculptured bust above his chamber door,
With such name as `Nevermore.’

But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing further then he uttered – not a feather then he fluttered –
Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before –
On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before.’
Then the bird said, `Nevermore.’

Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
`Doubtless,’ said I, `what it utters is its only stock and store,
Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful disaster
Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore –
Till the dirges of his hope that melancholy burden bore
Of “Never-nevermore.”‘

But the raven still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,
Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird and bust and door;
Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore –
What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore
Meant in croaking `Nevermore.’

This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom’s core;
This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining
On the cushion’s velvet lining that the lamp-light gloated o’er,
But whose velvet violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o’er,
She shall press, ah, nevermore!

Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.
`Wretch,’ I cried, `thy God hath lent thee – by these angels he has sent thee
Respite – respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!
Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!’
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.’

`Prophet!’ said I, `thing of evil! – prophet still, if bird or devil! –
Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted –
On this home by horror haunted – tell me truly, I implore –
Is there – is there balm in Gilead? – tell me – tell me, I implore!’
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.’

`Prophet!’ said I, `thing of evil! – prophet still, if bird or devil!
By that Heaven that bends above us – by that God we both adore –
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,
It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels named Lenore –
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels named Lenore?’
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.’

`Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!’ I shrieked upstarting –
`Get thee back into the tempest and the Night’s Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken! – quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!’
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.’

And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted – nevermore!

(Edgar Allan Poe, 1845)

Fantasy with the “Leah Inspiration Set”

Again my heart beats for Finesmith Designs… every time again if I open one of yula Finesmith awesome boxes I am curious and nearly cannot wait what is in there…

I know the “Leah” Inspiration set in black is not one of the newer ones but still it caught my heart and I was playing around with it and came to this sweet fantasy theme… ๐Ÿ™‚

The set like it is shown here contains 5 attachments and an underpants layer. The main look is a wonderful arrangement of flowers. The head part for me made it unnecessary to wear any hair and as well the chest part covers all that’s needed. The wonderful corset highlights the waist wonderful and the skirt as well is a piece of art that contains the flower theme as well. I added one of my all time favourites for the collar – the “Ash” collar and nails from Finesmith as well.

For all creations that yula Finesmith gives us you always will find the “special touch that shows off her skills and possibilities to make something different that always inspires me to work on pictures to show her incredible designs ๐Ÿ™‚

Angel Dessous – New Black Couture Line!!!

Lately Angel Dessous released a new Black Line with 3 wonderful outfits in black red and white. Today I would like to show you 2 of them in black. Lets start with the “Chess” outfit, that as well can be seen in the first picture.

“Chess” is an awesome knee-long dress, shoulder free with an amazing prim attachment. The dress it self on the first view looks very simple but as well it shows the elegance of simplicity. ๐Ÿ™‚ With “Chess” you are definitely dressed right for every party or event. It is the “little black” that can be worn always and for everything ๐Ÿ™‚ I added the new “Berry Blossom” set made by Finesmith Designs, the “Painter” fingernails as well from Finesmith and the “Sakura Boudoir” hat from the Boudoir hat collection.

The hair comes from Baiastice and is called “Fujiko”. The wonderful matching eye ornament was made by Talyia Tarber for her store Garded Secret.

My second outfit for today of the new Angel Dessous Black Line is named “Devine” and for this blog I chose the black version. “Devine” you can as well purchase in the blood version. This outfit has 2 possibilities to wear. one with a laced jacked and one without ๐Ÿ™‚ I decided to wear it without for that blog post ๐Ÿ™‚

The short dress has really an awesome couture touch with the awesome edgy attachments like the skirt and the shoulder parts/ neck part. The great corset that ends under the chest adds a very sexy touch as well. To hide my private parts and keep it PG for the blog post I took skull pasties made by Redclaw Inshan , designer of R:A:D. The sweet wrist ruffles usually are thought as an addition for the sheer jacket version but I could not go around to use them nevertheless for the short version as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰ For jewelry I decided again – for sure ๐Ÿ˜‰ – on Finesmith Designs. yula Finesmith lately created a wonderful set named “Giz” that comes with a necklace and a wonderful pair of earrings.

The incredible face mask that I liked so much for this styling as it matches the edgy prim parts comes from DE Designs and is called “Maiden Face Mask” and the hairstylist for this styling was Bliss Couture ๐Ÿ™‚ For skin and make up I stuck to my long time favourite Glam Affair ๐Ÿ™‚
