First Snow! – Winter Trend 2017

Matching the actual season the Winter Trend Fair 2017 is going on on the grid.

Amazing winter designs, that put you in a snow mood even if RL is not yet willing to gives snow yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

SL’s best designers again digged deep in their creativity sources to bring us amazing winter designs, certainly Utopia cannot be missed at such a great event!

Today the amazing “Wania” boots, made for the Winter Trend 2017, were the basic for my todays post and pictures. I always adored Utopia.. their shoes are one of the most stunning and realistic designs on the grid. The awesome high heels go up to the knee, while the bottom has some sexy toes peeping out ๐Ÿ˜‰ The fatpack or multi HUD has amazing features. You get 9 presets, which you can apply quickly and you have 5 options to raise the glossiness of the fabric. That comes in very handy depending, what kind of outfit you have on. If you tick the second tab of the HUD you get very detailed texture changing options. 6 different parts of the shoes can be color changed to 8 different colors! Can you just imagine how many possibilities that are? What more you can ask of such an awesome and sexy high heeled boot?

The cute knitted knee warmers and the cardigan with the fur collar, I found as well at the Winter Trend 2017 – I am sure no pixel animal has to loose its skin for that amazing design ๐Ÿ˜‰ The sleeves are an old favorite of mine from a store that sadly already closed years ago. For the basic outfit I used the Lyra outfit from Wicca’s Wardrobe. With the awesome ruffled top and skirt and some tights, it made a perfect match for a cool winter look! “Lyra” as well comes with a huge HUD to customize many single parts of the outfit and so it was easy to match the incredible “Wania” boots from Utopia.

The amazing simple but stunning makeup I found at On9. Alaskametro<3 did an amazing job with the “Soiree” eyeshadow, the shimmer metallics are a perfect choice for a everyday look and as well work for an evening party look. The “Fay” lipgloss with its sheer colors and the little flecks of glitterย  are perfect for a pixie-perfect lipstick!

With all the fur I needed a winter scenery and so I thought it is time to get some winter on the parcel beside our store and India helped me with some Christmas decoration… I am not THAT much of a Christmas person, so I just added the amazing wolves and cat from Jian to get some sweet and cozy winter feelings ๐Ÿ˜‰

One more week to go until Christmas… and I still need some presents – like every year I again did not make it to have all together one week before Christmas*snickers*

I hope you already have yours and can have a relaxed week to prepare your apartment/house like you want it for Christmas!

Pink and Cute???

Me and pastel colors… usually not the best match :p

But for today… I have no clue why… I wasย  in exactly that mood ๐Ÿ˜‰

The cool background maybe was the initial fact that lead me towards the sweet colors. The amazing “Aloha” dress, which is available at the actual round of The Liaison Collaborative, supported that idea of a summer, sweet colors post with a light vintage touch :p

First I did not even plan on a vintage touch, but when I found the “Betty Babes Glasses” from Manik Queen, I could not resist to tweak my style towards a cute vintage one.. yes… I said.. CUTE!

The glasses have so many color options and as well are sold in 2 different styles. Blank, white dots and black dots – there is no style you cannot make them fit ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now I would like to take a closer look at my hands. The fantastic rings are made by MEVA. I saw many Maitreya bento fitted rings lately but rarely some that rea so cool and detailed and as well more casual looking, so you can wear them as everyday accessory. With all the curves and decorations they are really a little art piece and outstanding from all the ones I saw before.

The rings are not just mirrored for left and right hand you actually have 2 totally different designs for each hand. you can wear the rings single for each finger or you can just use the full set at once… all options are included in the pack. As if that would not be already enough.. you as well can decide, if you would like the rings in silver or gold ๐Ÿ™‚ MEVA released so many more amazing rings – I soon have to make a special about it but I so wanted to showcase the first set today ๐Ÿ˜‰

Speaking of MEVA… did you realize those cool piercings at my collarbone and my cleavage^^? Mea Carnell, owner and designer of MEVA, made those for the actual round of Cosmo. They are a wonderful little styling accessories, that just give the little extra-ordinary look ๐Ÿ˜‰

The wonderful nail polish again was made by Nailed It!, one of my favourite nail polish places. O loved the little opened zipper which gives the idea of very exclusive french nails ๐Ÿ˜‰

The amazing lipstick certainly comes from Zibska, while the absolute stunning eyeshadow was made by Slackgirl ๐Ÿ˜‰

And now I will use my short ‘cutsie’ time for a little bot of window shopping before the dark side again takes over *giggles*

Lingerie… innocent and delicate the same time ;)

Blacklace - Vivian 1

Again I had a lot of fun by playing with lingerie ๐Ÿ˜‰

Blacklace came out with some stunning news a few ago and today I would like to showcase the new “Vivian” lingerie from Blacklace. It comes in many different colors (always 2 in once pack), but I chose the nude/black version for today. I loved how the innocent nude fabrics going along so well with the delicate lace…

Blacklace - Vivian 3

I really do love the way how the applier lingerie works on the Slink mesh body. It has not a single blurry spot, everything is sharp and detailed shown, you nearly get the impression you can feel the lace under your fingers touching the screen :p

What could fit better to such a wonderful lingerie than beautiful pearls. The wonderful necklace with the incredible back view comes from AvaWay. The “Emmanuelle” necklace can be worn as a complete set or as 6 separate parts. For this post I chose the full set of the necklace. The bracelet I took from the “Taylor” set by Lybra and the super awesome ring was made by Tracei Moore.

Blacklace - Vivian 4

Lingerie should never be over-accessorized in my opinion, so I decided to just add the fantastic “Galla” pumps from Glamistry to complete the look.

Blacklace - Vivian 6

The awesome deco and furniture for the scene, besides the wonderful mannequins, I found at the actual round of On9. I kinda wanted something industrial, used looking for my set today to put out the fantastic lingerie even more ๐Ÿ™‚

You may have noticed, a new head on my shoulders… I am testing again, but that will be a new post soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOTD 07/29/2016 – Lazy Afternoon

sys 4

Today I have again a post that fell together just by trying things ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sometimes that is the best way to create looks – unplanned looks I just love it :p

sys 5

First I put on the “Sensa Tank Dress” and immediately fell in love with those huge buckle in the back and the amazing counter parts at the front. Usually this is meant to be a dress but I could not resist to play with it to see what I can come up with :p

After I tried various pants, shorts and skirts, I got stuck on the “Hunter Pants” from Pixicat. With the laced sides and the great sand color, they looked perfect to the “Sensa Tank Dress”. With the pants and the top the whole look took a more heavy casual look and so I added one of my favourite shoes to the outfit – the “Triumph Boots” from [GOS].

sys 3

ย The cool arm straps are part of the “In Flames” outfit from Asteria. With the huge buckles they matches so nice to the top with the buckle in the back ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since I am really a short hair cut lover I could not pass the “No.Meaning” hairstyle of the actual round of On9 (July.. today is the last day you can find it there I guess) made by no.match.

sys 7

Now I needed a location to shoot. With this look I felt, that a inworld location would look better than an editorial shot in my studio. My first way lead me to one of the amazing Neva sims. I am sure you all know about those as they are the most awesome sims for photo shoots ๐Ÿ˜‰ If not you really should make your way to one of them. This time it was the Neva River Village. A wonderful sim with a lot of water, bridges and paths and a wonderful urban but modern and trendy look. I love the colors and tones and how everything works together so well for all of the Neva sims anyways what theme they have.

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

ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

The hat of the “Cameron Dress” really reminded me on some of those ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 offย  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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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.

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ The outfit comes in the standard sizes and as well in a slink and maitreya mesh body friendly version.

ย 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.ย  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.

The Crow – Dark & Strong

Miss Darcy 4

Today I have the great pleasure to showcase another hat for the Art in Hats 2015 charity. This time it is the contribution of Miss Darcy”.

The “Stillness” hat not only includes the hat, but as well a wonderful and sad dramatic looking face tattoo.

Miss Darcy 3

The “Stillness” hat looks like a tree branch coming out from your head and has sitting a little crow in it. Additional to that you have crows flying around your head too what brought me on the idea of todays look.

The face tattoo reminded me about 2 things. First of all about the old silent movies, where pantomimes were used or even about the pantomimes, that you can find out on the street in the big cities who entertain the people while they are shopping.

And for the second reason.. I am a child of the 80s and back then those sad clowns, called Pierrot, were very popular. I know that the general term is way older, but they kinda had a revival in the 80s in black & white. And the mask kinda reminded me of that as well.

Miss Darcy 1

When I was putting the hat and the makeup on, I looked at it more and more the Crow theme was growing in my head. Again and again black crows and dead trees were floating through my mind.

The dead tree totally called for something late fall winter looking in my opinion and I remembered the “Corvo” outfit from Zibska. The dark branches were right what I was looking for.

The outfit is made by Leezu and I just used the clothing layers for today. The kinda ripped off lately was the perfect base for the idea I had.

Miss Darcy 5

For the shoes I was thinking a long time what I should wear. Boots? … to heavy for the filigree look with the branches… heels? … to elegant…

While I was trying several different shoes, a gift came to my mind. I got this shoes as a special gift, to remember something while I would wear them. The shoes are not common shoes, they are just leather straps wich surround the footย  and the ankles and as a heel they just have one iron pin. I am sure, that those shoes are kinda painful to walk in and as well not very comfortable with poking constantly into the back of the heel *shudders* But since I did not have to walk a lot for the shooting.. it was worth a try :p The shoes kinda underlined the gothic character of the look as well as they were filigree enough to not overload the whole look.

Miss Darcy 6

With my addiction to tattoos, I certainly could not miss one of my favourite tattoos from White Widow ๐Ÿ˜‰ . The “Cavage” tattoo is available on the We <3 RP event and it is a full body tattoo, which goes from the upper body,shoulders and arms down over the belly to the upper thigh of the right leg. That was perfect for the kinda ripped lately since the bare skin was covered by amazing ink then ๐Ÿ™‚ The tattoo works for the normal avatar and as well for all popular mesh bodies.

Last but not least I added – to complement the shoes – I added a collar from Revolt ([R3]), called “Isobel” with some chains and buckles to bring back those accessories from the bottom to the top as well.

The Night before Halloween

Arts in Hats 3

Today, I am in a Halloween mood already, even if it is just the day before ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was looking at the new hats from Eleseren Brianna, which she made for the upcoming Art in Hats event.

My heart was caught by the “Death of a Romanic Hat”. The hat to me really is a little piece of art.

It is a firework of textures and shapes.

Arts in Hats 2

The basic shape of the hat carries a wonderful and as well rough looking fabric what totally underlines the name of the hat ๐Ÿ˜‰

With the sweet and filigree, artistic decorations around that head it definitely will turn heads.

To complete my look I put on the “Grimm Dress” from [sys]. The dress was released on one of the Collarbor 88 events. The dress comes with glasses and a hat, but for today I just used that amazing dress.

The short dress has comes with a wonderful corset, tht accents the waist and on the lower end of the skirt you will see this amazing delicate lace trim. The corset and the lace trim are HUD driven and you can change them to different colors. The great thing about the “Grim Dress” comes for various mesh bodies as well, like the Slink Physique, the 2 Belleza ones, Maitreya and TMP

For shoes I chose the “Lipstick Heels” from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The shoes are made for the Slink mesh high feet and won’t work n regula avatar feet.

I just loved to point out the contrast between sweet and evil for that look ๐Ÿ˜‰

The awesome furniture I arranged around myself is one of GizzA’s latest releases. The pieces are all part of a Gacha in an event called “Lost and Found”.
