Black & Gold – Happy New Year!

 

Back & Gold… always an exciting and most of the time elegant color combination. To me it was always kinda powerful, as well as it is a great contrast between the dark and more matte looking black and the shining and bright gold tones πŸ˜‰

I started with the “Lily Dress” from United Colors. That dress really is an amazing design. It comes with a HUD, that lets you change the style of the dress from a ground long dress to the sexy upper body design and as a bra top style only! So with the purchase of the dress you will get 3!

I do love mix and match and layering clothing, to create interesting looks, that do not show everything on the first view and so I put the amazing “Ulla” bodice under the “Lily Dress”. With the delicate lace parts and the solid middle part, it was perfect to go with the amazing dress. To stay with the gold & black idea I added the wonderful “Metallic Arrow” tattoo from Izzie’s. The tattoo comes in a gold version and several silver shades as well.

The great bracelet on my right hand and the amazing eyepatch are made by Bauhaus Movement, while iI used one of the “Lady Faith” gloves from Asteria for my left hand – yes, I really do like non symmetrical accessories πŸ˜‰

The awesome fitting rings are designed and made by Ivi, Bing, owner and designer of Formanails, who did as well the amazing mesh nails with these incredible filigree gold topping.

The eye makeup I found at Nanika. With that golden tear andΒ  the golden dust around the eyes it was a perfect match for my todays look.

For the shoes I used the “Monarch Heels” made by Reign, which I picked up on the great Black Friday sale. The have a huge HUD for leather and metal colors and so it was easy to color them in black and gold as well, to match the styling πŸ˜‰

For the set, I was thinking a long time what to do, until I decided to go with a more minimalistic look. I only wanted something black and gold for the set as well and not something that totally overloads the whole picture. I decided to go with the amazing bath tube from the pose shop and the awesome “Confetti Balloons” from Apple Fall.

I wish you all some golden and amazing times for 2017 πŸ˜‰

Happy New Year!

Azul Sofia 1

[Tunes]

When leaves have fallen
And skies turned to grey
The night keeps on closing in on the day
A nightingale sings his song of farewell
You better hide for her freezing hell

On cold wings she’s coming
You better keep moving
For warmth, you’ll be longing
Come on just feel it
Don’t you see it?
You better believe

Azul Sofia 2

When she embraces
Your heart turns to stone
She comes at night when you are all alone
And when she whispers
Your blood shall run cold
You better hide before she finds you

She covers the earth with a breathtaking cloak
The sun awakes and melts it away
The world now opens its eyes and it sees
The dawning of the new day

Azul Sofia 3

On cold wings she’s coming
You better keep moving
For warmth, you’ll be longing
Come on just feel it
Don’t you see it?
You better believe

Whenever she is raging
She takes all life away
Haven’t you seen?
Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

Lady in Red? Featuring Azul & EMO-tions

Azul 1red

Lady in Red

I’ve never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I’ve never seen you shine so bright
I’ve never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
Looking for a little romance, given half a chance
I have never seen that dress you’re wearing
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes
I have been blind

Azul 2

Lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me, it’s where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I’ll never forget, the way you look tonight

I’ve never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I’ve never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing
I’ve never seen so many people wanna be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

Azul 3

Lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me, it’s where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I’ll never forget, the way you look tonight
I never will forget, the way you look tonight

The lady in red
The lady in red
The lady in red
My lady in red (I love you.)

Casual Chic with Asia Rae

Asia 1b

Lately Asia Rae surprises us with more and more amazing new releases.

Today I would like to drag the spotlight on the “Roxane Dress”. A simple, but amazing detailed textured, short dress.

Asia 2b

Dresses like the “Roxane Dress” are a very important asset in a wardrobe in my view, as it gives the possibility to use them for so many different looks. You can drag it from a simple casual, over an exciting casual chic up to a wonderful seductive elegant look.

It only depends on the accessories, how you wanna make this awesome chameleon look like πŸ˜‰

Asia 3a

Today, I wanted to go for some casual chic, with a light touch of elegance. The idea came, when Alexavion, a very dear friend, that I know for years, dragged me to the St. Pete City sim to shoot the pics for the Womanstuff hunt gifts lookbook pictures. I never saw this amazing sim before. It was designed and built by Neva Crystall, the owner of Neva Estates. Her sims are one of the most amazing places to live and wander around. she puts so much love to the detail for her places… it is unbelievable awesome πŸ™‚

Asia 6b

For the shoes I chose something converse. Probably this style would have called for pumps or stilettos, at least some high heels, but that would not be me. As long as I have my little styling freedom, I always will put my personal twist on it, if not requested differently for a runway or print job for example.

I chose the “Montana Boots” from Wicca’s Wardrobe. They can be used for elegant and casual purposes, even for some fantasy or RP depending on the color you use πŸ˜‰ I liked to wear them to the “Roxane Dress” as they as well have so many different style possibilities.

Asia 5a

To accessorize the whole look, I chose a jewelry set from Meva. The “Spiral Spheres” in gold. The amazing necklace, together with the ring, made the perfect addition to combine the controversy of the dress and the boots. In my view, it is a strong and bold set, that shows character and combines the casual and the chic.

I wanted to have a huge hat, I really do like the big hats as they add a lot of chic and elegance to looks for me, sometimes even something mystical. With hats you usually run into trouble finding hair, where the hair is not poking through. so the easiest way is to find a hair that comes with a hair or was made for hat. I found my today’s hair at ICONIC. The “Boss” hair comes as hair with hat and a HUD to choose for several colors. If I remember correctly, I found it on one of the On9 rounds, but I am sure it should be available in the main store now.

PurpleMoon makes me wear pink!

PurpleMoon 8 starterWhen I got the amazing Cameron Outfit and saw the huge color HUD, I went through all colors… and I really could not resist to wear the pink. So I took my medicals and put it back on :p

PurpleMoon 3

Β The “Cameron Dress” is an amazing asymmetric dress with a sexy, high slit on the left leg. The sleeves are not the usual short ones and no long ones either. They just go down a little over the elbow πŸ˜‰

The dress for each color is parted in 2 halfs, what makes the whole ensemble very interesting and as well different. With the sharp folds and wrinkles it becomes an awesome realistic look.

PurpleMoon 6

As well part of the outfit is the incredible hat. Hats to me are something very special. I am a hat/headpiece addicted anyways and hats always add some kind of class and chic to every look. There is a reason why many classy celebrities and popular people wearing hats or some kind of head wear for the more classy events.

AS well all the rich and beautiful people who spent their free time on horseracing places like Ascot… you can see a lot of huge and extraordinary hats there πŸ˜‰

The hat of the “Cameron Dress” really reminded me on some of those πŸ˜‰

With the delicate lace and the wonderful ribbon that hat really makes a statement and pulls the whole look on the super elegant side.

PurpleMoon 2 shoes

To just not break that super elegant style I chose to wear the Titania Sandals as well from PurpleMoon. The shape just fit perfectly to the look and the color was matching dreamy to the pink shades of the dress.

PurpleMoon 5

For the scenery I used a few of the items that are available on the actual round of the On9 event. The “Pollen Table Lamp” I just used as a floor lamp together with the “Pollen Hanging Lamp” on the other side. Both are made by Di’Cor and available in 6 different colors at the event. The lights can be turned on and offΒ  by touch. The table lamp only has a LI of 2 and the hanging version only 6LI. With that low LI they are a perfect decoration even for a small room only πŸ˜‰

The cute and amazing steps were made by Serenity Style. There are 2 different versions available, one clean and one rusty. With all the love to the details those steps are a perfect decoration item for your home and as well a wonderful part of a scenery for photography.

Mila is back!!! – News from SoliDea FoliEs

Solidea 1

Mila Tatham, owner and designer of SoliDea FoliEs, is back with some amazing news!

Today I have the great honor and pleasure to showcase 2 of her newest releases.

I would like to start with the “Becca” outfit. The outfit contains the wonderful long sleeved top. The shoulders are free and with the bell bottom sleeve shape it totally is a piece to add for your wardrobe. The wrapped/ruffled skirt gives a sexy but as well cool urban touch to the while look.

The wonderful hair, that matched so perfectly was made by EMO-tions. The “Agneta” hairstyle with the great hairband as well comes with the amazing headpiece, earrings and choker(not worn in this post) The hair band can be color changed via the HUD.

Solidea 2

The second outfit for today would be the new “Alexis” dress.

Solidea 4

This amazing long dress – Mila must have spent hours to make it that amazing and realistic! – is a definite eye catcher! It reaches down over the knees and with the puffy arm sleeves and the amazing wide and high neck collar it will turn heads where ever you go.

To match the “Alexis” dress, SoliDea FoliEs offers the “Alexis” hat. A sweet flower, surrounded by huge, twisted tendrils.

To complete the look I just added the awesome “Frida” hair from EMO-tions and some cool winter ready boots made by “Pixelfashion.

The outfits are available in more colors than just black πŸ˜‰ To see all of them please take a ride to the new SoliDea FoliEs main store. The whole sim got remodeled and Mila built an awesome new store to it πŸ™‚

LOTD 08/17/2015 – Goodies @ On9 :)

On9 1a

Today I would like to showcase some of the amazing designs available at the On9 event.

On9 is a monthly event, that offers many different designers, creations, and items. You will find clothing, accessories, furniture, poses, shoes, makeup and nearly everything you can thin about all in one place done by different genius and skilled creators. You can imagine how happy I was when I was asked if we would like to be part with Wicca’s Wardrobe as well… among all those incredible designers and creators πŸ˜‰

But today I won’t use any of our own stuff and put some spotlight on some of those amazing items you can find at the current On9 event.

On9 2a

Let’s start with the incredible amazing head-piece. Who else that Zib Scaggs, owner and designer of Zibska, could do such an amazing art piece?

The huge head-piece looks like made out of petals and some sweet fishes are swimming around. The head-piece comes with a great color HUD that lets you customize the petals, the accents and the fishes to many different colors.

To fit under this wonderful head-piece I needed some not too high but still modern and fresh looking hairstyle. Guess what… I as well found that one at On9 *snickers*. No.Match offers the perfect hair for my actual look. The “No.Call” style with the two smart braided tails left and right was the right addition to balance the crazy and the cute touch of the whole look.

The glasses are as well available at On9. Made by [Since 1975] those glasses are an extra ordinary addition to your accessories box! You can decide between 4 different colors. I went with the golden version for today’s post.

On9 3a

The super sweet top was made by the amazing Poulet Koenkamp, owner and designer of PurpleMoon.

Poulet is one of the most talented people, I was allowed to meet and call a friend in SL. She always amazed me with her stunning hand printed textures and her awesome ideas and designs. For this month of On9 she made this delicate top called “Anika” in 7 different colors. The top is a wide and loose fit and together with the cool sleeves, this top really is a must have for every ladies wardrobe especially for the late summer season:) .

Β The pants and the shoes coming from a very talented and skilled woman too. Thetra Blackheart, ower and designer of E-Clipse. The “Fringe Pants” I got longer ago but the amazing “Follia” heels are as well available at On9. In 6 different colors or as a fatpack, those amazing heels fit the Slink, the Maitreya and the TMP feet. The strapped heels have wonderful fringes at the front and some amazing metal decorations on the straps. With the HUD you can change the metals to 3 different types.

Last but not least I would like to zoom in a little bit closer and drag the focus on this incredible necklace from Kunglers. You can pick from 5 different colors. The great combination of filigree metals, stones and gems makes a wonderful every day necklace for many different styles.

For all the other amazing ne releases at On9 please jump over there and take a look by yourself. And don’t forget… every designer offers one piece for 20% off the regular price, like always at On9!

EMO-tions – Hair for every Moment of your Second Life

EMO-tions - Rosi

EMO-tions – “Rosie”

Hair is something essential in most of the Second Life residents’ life. Anyways if male or female we all have fun trying new hair and match our hairstyle to different looks, styles and moves. Sometimes it is not even easy to find what you are looking for but Mirja Mills, owner and designer of EMO-tions is a big help with that.

EMO-tions is one of the biggest hair shops in SL and Mirja provides hair styles – male or female – for nearly every occasion!

EMO-tions - Stephanie

EMO-tions – “Stephanie”

Usually we just use hair for our daily posts but rarely put the spotlight on the hair only and that was the idea for this post. I just put on a sleeveless top from LeeZu, one of my favourite clothing designers and changed the hair only to really put all the focus on the hair. I really think, that making hair is a hell of a job… all this little parts, wisps, bangs and what ever it takes to make a realistic hairstyle and that is why I wanted to do this special hair post πŸ˜‰

EMO-tions - Kessie

EMO-tions – “Kessie”

EMO-tions offers such a great variety of hair… long, middle long, short, curled, straight… nearly everything what you can imagine.

With the new HUD, EMO-tions added a lot more colors and shades. The colors are parts in 5 categories – Blonde, Red, Brunette, Black/White and Pastel. Each of that categories has one HUD with 10 different colors or shades of the category. In the pastels HUD you will find as well some of the non usual hair colors like pink, mint or blue.

EMO-tions - Liliah

EMO-tions – “Lilah”

For todays post, I decided to go with the blonde tone, just because I did a red one last time and I am wearing blonde at the moment the most πŸ˜‰

EMO-tions does not only hairstyles for the every day look, Mirja as well makes amazing fantasy and role play hair. Like the “Cersei” hair style, which was made for an event that asked for ‘Game of Thrones inspired designs. I totally can see the “Cersei” hair on medieval or fantasy looks as well.

EMO-tions - Cersei

EMO-tions – “Cersei”

EMO-tions does not only do hair. You will find as well outfits and jewelry. With that skills it is no surprise, that besides ‘normal’ hair we s well kind find specials that are decorated with wonderful ornaments, jewelry, horns, chains or flowers.

For example the “Lona” hair style. Such a cute and sweet idea, to put some daisy flowers around the head like a wreath πŸ™‚ Isn’t that the perfect style for the actual summer season?

EMO-tions - Lona

EMO-tions – “Lona”

Last but not least I would like to showcase one of the latest releases of EMO-tions for the On9 event. The event started at the 9th of August and will last until round about a month. The “Yve” hair is a shoulder long and lightly wavy style. With the amazing wisps it gives a very young, modern and smart look πŸ˜‰ . “Yve” comes in 2 sizes as it is a unisex hair style for male and female!

Make sure to stop by at the EMO-tions Main Store, to see all of the amazing releases and new releases!

Nailed It! – “Cracked Set”

This time I have the great pleasure, to showcase some of the newest designs of SoliDea FoliEs.

But before I will put the attention to the amazing designs I would like to focus again on my nails… I realized lately that wearing nails is something so ‘normal’ that you tend to forget about and usually they do not get the spotlight they earn. My nail polish for this post was made by Giela Delpaso, owner and designer of Nailed It! and a very good friend of mine. She puts so much effort in her work… it is incredible what tiny filigree art she puts on her nail designs.

Today I used some nail polishes from her “Cracked Set”. Lately Nailed it” not only provides nails for slink appliers and a set of mesh nails, but as well the HUDs for Maitreya and Belleza hands!

 

Solidea full

from left to right: SoliDea FoliEs – “Dolce”, “Uno.Mint”, “Flora” & “Dots into Spring”

Mila Tatham is back with amazing news and as well original mesh creations!

She made an amazing Spring/Summer Collection. Parts of her creations were showcased on the Saviad Anniversary and the wonderful FEROSH shows over that weekend.

Looking at her whole collection I was not really able to choose which dress or gown I would like to showcase first, so I put o all of them and snapped them to not be forced to just focus on one of them πŸ˜‰

Β From left to right we can see the “Dulce” dress, a short sleeve less dress with an amazing zebra print and a wonderful floral middle. Up next we have one of the Saviad exclusive releases called “Uno” in a mint color. The dress has a mesh basic and wonderful flexible prims added to give the whole outfit a very aerial look. The collar is attached to the dress already. The third design is called “Flora” and the name already tells what it is πŸ˜‰ A beautiful long-sleeved dress that reaches down to the ground with an awesome floral pattern. Last but not least we have the cute “Dots into Spring” dress. I am addicted to dots anyways and that sweet dress as well has this pretty flower to attach at the shoulder and as well some flexible prims that give the whole design a very realistic look, even if I liked it without as well πŸ˜‰

To see all the amazing new releases and original mesh designs of Mila Tatham, owner and genius designer of SoliDea FoliEs, you better make your way to her main store and watch around all the wonderful new releases and all time favourites πŸ˜‰
