Tres Beau for Scala Gradiversary

Look #1: Tres Beau - "Breeze" (melon)

Look #1: Tres Beau – “Breeze” (melon)

Today there was a wonderful and exciting event going on at the Scala HQ. The Gradiversary event.

What is a Gradiversary event you might ask yourself… it is a mix of Anniversary and Graduation Show πŸ˜‰

Scala celebrates its 2nd Anniversary this year and so they decided to have a combination of an Anniversary and Graduation show.

With 19 designers, that made exclusive collections and releases for that show, it was a great celebration and I would like to show case one of them today.

Kimmera Madison, owner and designer of Tres Beau.

Tres Beau is one of the oldest and most popular clothing stores in SL and with her quality of designs, texturing, fabrics and colors she certainly is one of the top stores in SL for a very long time. How was that quote I got told so often when I was a child… quality will prevail and remain πŸ˜‰

For the Gradiversary event, Tres Beau created 3 different outfits, which are available in more colors that I will showcase today.

The first one you can see above, the “Breeze” ensemble. A wonderful combination of a compfy tank shirt and skirt with an amazing leather belt. The fresh colors already point out on the upcoming spring season and so the outfit is just the perfect choice.

Look #2: Tres Beau - "Sam" (tan)

Look #2: Tres Beau – “Sam” (tan)

The “Sam” combination again shows how fashionable knitted designs can be πŸ˜‰ The outfit comes in the standard sizes and as well in a slink and maitreya mesh body friendly version.

Β With the long arms and the high waist skirt – which just let a small space for the belly to peek through – is a perfect addition for the upcoming spring season. Still warm and cozy and as well sexy and fashion forward, this ensemble is available in several colors at the Tres Beau Mainstore!

I just added a stole from GizzA and boots from MODA to underline that wonderful chick attitude. The wonderful bag with the perfect color range was made by PurpleMoon.

Look #3: Tres Beau - "Tiffany" (teal)

Look #3: Tres Beau – “Tiffany” (teal)

For the third style, I am wearing the “Tiffany” gown in teal. A wonderful tight mesh gown with an amazing flexible bottom, that makes it very filigree, soft and airy.Β  The soft gradient on the color gives you a lot of options for accessories. The elegant necklace and earrings are already part of the outfit so i skipped any other kind of accessory to not overload the fine and delicate gown. Like the 2 other designs, the “Tiffany ” gown is available in more amazing color gradients and tones at the Tres Beau Mainstore.

MVW 2012: National Gown for Miss Turkey 2012 by Tres Beau

Today I would like to show case the incredible national costume of Miss Turkey 2012, Miss Xandrah Sciavo. With this amazing firework of textures, prims, fabrics and colors, Kimmera Madison worked out an art work for Tres Beau. Again Kimmera proved that she really takes it serious if models come and ask her for the national costumes for Miss Virtual World. She takes a great effort to research the typical elements and colors of the country she makes the dress for. If you google about traditional outfits of Turkey, you will find many designs that come very close to what Kimmera created. The colors, the shape of the prims and the combination of laced, sheer and opaque parts… super awesome. If you take a look on all the ornaments that decorate this stunning dress… the little chain parts and decorations at the belt, the wonderful chest part with the coins that are made as prim parts, you only can imagine how long Kimmera sat on this piece of art. The head-piece as well is part of the outfit with the beautiful decoration at the right front side. Talking of chains and coins, the jewelry of this great outfit as well is part of it if you purchase it at Tres Beau. Kimmera as well made the effort to create the perfect matching jewelry to this outfit. The cute earrings with the little bells as well are typical for the country and it’s belly dancers πŸ˜‰ The huge necklace combines gems and noble metals with a leather line in an amazing way. Again we can see, that Kimmera really has an eye for the detail. This as well made her to one of the most popular designers in SL and the SL Fashion world I guess πŸ˜‰ If an outfit is not just made of its basics, even if they are great, then you can see how much a designer puts in to his creations and this little details mostly make those outfits so special and unique then πŸ™‚ If you make your way to the Tres Beau Mainstore you can get your “Miss Turkey” and feel like an oriental princess πŸ™‚

I tried to find a nice pose for this amazing outfit but no pose wanted to do what I had in mind, or the different parts of the outfit were hidden, so the one I used is my first one, I made on my own*dances around* Basically I have to thank Kimmera for this dress that finally put me making my own poses as well πŸ™‚

MVW 2012: Evening Gown for Miss Turkey 2012 by Tres Beau

The wonderful evening gown of Miss Turkey 2012Miss Xandrah Sciavo – was made again of our genius Kimmera Madison, owner and incredible designer of Tres Beau. Kimmera seems like a barrel with no bottom for wonderful ideas of designing and textures. Not one of her gowns – and there were quite a few – of the Miss Virtual 2012 finales looked even close to the other, neither in design or color or textures or prims. The beautiful “Miss Xandrah” gown is a very elegant and shiny design with the amazing prims of the skirt. The skirt looks close to a mermaid skirt but does not start that deep as we know it usually from mermaid dresses. The first layer of fabrics that is made of feathers starts round the knees and it flows in an awesome bigger skirt part that looks more solid but still very aerial. The mixture of this 2 very different fabrics again shows how great are Kimmera’s skills in ideas and designs. The bodice is made very filigree with a shining fabric and wonderful dark ornaments. If you take a closer look you can see that this ornaments are delicious gemstones that are repeated in the earrings and the necklace as well. Talking of the jewelry… the awesome set is part of the gown and as well made by Tres Beau!!! The mixture of the dark gems and the white pearls is just the perfect jewelry for this amazing gown and I really love the idea to have the gemstones as a decoration for the bodice of the gown as well. It gives such an overall round and just perfect look. The amazing headpiece made out of filigree and aerial feathers just gives the little extra sophisticated touch to the “Miss Xandrah” gown. I like the idea of the side, non symmetric placed attachment for the hair. So do no think too long… be honest with yourself, you must have this amazing elegant and sophisticated gown for your personal wardrobe πŸ˜‰ Hurry over to Tres Beau and get yours πŸ˜‰

Yula Finesmith is back from her vacation.. and we have a bunch of amazing new releases at Finesmith!!! For today I have the “Asia” set for you πŸ™‚ A wonderful, elegant and beautiful set, that contains a pair of earrings, a necklace and a ring. The basic shape we can see is kinda flower. The filigree lines at the outsides, that give the imagination of the petals meet in the middle in a fantastic textured pearl. The pearls, in a smaller size,Β  you as well can find at the very end of the silver ‘petals’ as well. Again we can see yula’s amazing skills if it comes to design and details. Her unique creations seem to be an inspiration for other jewelry designers as well, what bigger compliment you can get as a designer… so way to go yula… you rock πŸ™‚

Wicca’s Wardrobe – Thank you Yula :)

Lately Xenobia Foxclaw had a great idea… she asked all the Finesmith models to think about their favourite Finesmith Designs set, snap it, write a few words about and posted them on the Finesmith Designs Blog. It was really hard to decide but in the end this was my contribution to it πŸ˜‰

“As I was asked to pic my favourite Finesmith jewelry pieces, I did not think not too long and said “Yes sure, gimme a few minutes”…
…but then I was going over and over my Finesmith pieces and found out … it is harder then I thought to find my “favourite”, because if I woudl add all the ones I call my favourites one picture would not be enough πŸ˜‰
So I was thinking, to wich piece I have the most personal relationship…
It was a huge honor for me to be chosen as one of the Finesmith Muse 2011. All of the finalists got a signature Inspiration set that carries our name. Yula put in so much time, effort and love in each piece she created. She tried to make for each of us a very personal set that mirrors our style and personality. For that she took time for each of us for talking to know us better and find out more about each finalist.
To honor all that she did and because she catched myself so much in the “Wicca” inspiration set I chose to wear it as my personal favourite.
Thank you Yula and the whole Finesmith Family, for a place in Second Life that I really can call home and family :)”

Wicca’s Wardrobe: One of my long time favourites by Eshi Otawara

(Picture by Barney Roundel)

Longer ago Barney Roundel made this wonderful picture for me and I just found it again and remembered the wonderful “Black Gems are forever” outfit by Eshi Otawara.

The top and the gloves are made with the same wonderful texture as the jewelry parts are. Black gems all over so the name really is program πŸ™‚ The pants are made very simple without any attachments in an awesome grey and black shadedΒ  fabric. For the shows I chose one of my favourites from Stiletto Moody, the “Lucille” boots in black. The bag, headpiece, earrings, ring and collar are part of the outfit itself.

Sometimes you find great stuff that you are nearly not recognize anymore as you did not wear it for a long time. That happened nearly with all parts that I used for this styling and I really had a great time grubbing in my inventory and I found even more parts that will be part of some of my future posts πŸ™‚

Finesmith Designs: 11 Rooms – The Inspiration Show!!!

Walk like an Egyptian with Finesmith Designs!

One set of Finesmith Designs caught me for longer and I had something in mind about styling that I did not find all the time. I wanted to do something special for the “Egyptian” set and lately I came across something I really liked πŸ˜‰

The “Egyption” set it self contains The fabulous headpiece, the skirt with the long train, nipple shields, necklace, earrings and the incredible eye ornament. With all this parts the “Egyptians set is not only a jewelry set, it is a full outfit where you just have to add hair and shoes and a skin of your likings, for sure you can wear this with your usual skin as well I just was tempted with this golden one I found in a sale at VUI. The hair comes from Purplemoon including the hair base and it is called “Cat” in golden wheat. I chose some golden boots for it that anyways not show in this pics, so anyways :p. The “Egyptian” for me is the total proove of how creative and genius yula Finesmith is. Her endless heart and soul of creativity never will be empty and I am sure she writes history in the SL fashion world with her amazing creations… I saw my new Inspiration set a week ago even longer, it is just a secret till the official release… but I can tell you I never ever before saw jewelry thats so me! Yula puts in so much time, soul, love and effort in this inspiration sets and the turn out so amazing and unique! You really should try the Finesmith Inspirations Muse castings and if it is only to work close with one of the most amazing people in Second Life – yulaFinesmith ! For the perfect posing of the “Egyptian” set I used poses from Body Talking made by Arisia Ashmoot out of the “Mr Egypt” set that you as well can use for females πŸ™‚
