“Dark Swan” or “Do we ever have enough pumps?”

Today I am very happy to showcase the amazing new “Cassie” pumps from [Gos]. Who can say no to such an amazing sexy, pointed toe pump with that kind of high blade heel? We all know women can never have enough heels so lets take a look on the newest release from [Gos] for November round of FaMESHed.

[Gos] always was one of my favourite designers in SL and for this month they have some really exciting changes and news. The HUDs have been updated and from now on you do not have any words in a menu, you get a HUD that has little colored squares and so you just have to click on those to customize your shoe to your style and favor.

Cassie – Boutique HUD (includes 18 current, in-season colours & 5 sole, 2 metal, and 2 lining options perfect for any fashionista)

With the new “Cassie” pumps you have 3 different HUDs available in your pack. The Boutique, the Blueberry and the Metallics HUD. The Blueberry HUD will be a new addition for future releases, so you can coordinate your amazing Blueberry clothing perfect with your incredible [Gos] shoes ๐Ÿ™‚

Cassie – Blueberry HUD (includes 28 colours which coordinate with clothing from Blueberry plus 5 sole, 2 metal, and 2 lining options)

Each HUD has a different number of colors on it as well as options for the sole, metals and lining. I only snapped a few colors to still make the full beauty of the show visible but as you can see there is a wide color range and you won’t hardly find any color where you cannot find a match in your “Cassie” HUDs.

Cassie – Metallics HUD (includes 10 metallics & 5 sole, 2 metal, and 2 lining options which will have your feet shining)

The “Cassie” pumps are made for MaitreyaLara, Belleza and Slink high feet. And now the unbelievable… That full pack is available at FaMESHed for only 495 L$. That is a steal of a deal!

Now I would just take a closer look on the rest of my look for today. To not over accessorize the shoes I decided to go for some body tight clothing. the lingerie I got longer ago from Apple May.ย  I loved the high-waisted panties and the look of the completely covering bra. The “Tigress” set are 2 appliers, which can be used on Slink and omega compatible bodies. For the harness I found the cool “Black Bird” harness from PurpleMoon. It just perfectly went with my lingerie and I loved the little wings in the back. To pimp the bra a little bit I added the “Skeleton Clamps” from Salt & Pepper which are a hunt gift for the ‘Once upon a Nightmare’ hunt. They are meant to be worn without any bra but I loved the look so much on it ๐Ÿ˜‰ The more I styled the more a dark swan grew in my head.

But I do not wanna bore with more text as I know you probably already trying to TP to FaMESHed to grab your “Cassie” pumps and I will put all the style details with LMs anyways below the last picture as always ๐Ÿ˜‰

Together!

Blogging can become such a lonely thing and it is so much fun to blog with friends.

So Tempest and me decided to have a monthly ‘friends post’ as it was so much fun last year to do the pictures together ๐Ÿ™‚

This time we decided to go with Blacklace, as we both blog for Blacklace and they recently had so many amazing new releases!

Tempest said it was her turn to take the picture and so we both styled the “Anais” lingerie. I chose the black one and styled it with the amazing “Lido Body” from [sys]. To cover the arms, since Tempe said outside shoot *giggles* I put the fur sleeves from Cashmere, that I got at their closing sale. For the shoes I wanted something high up the legs but as well something that does not cover up the amazing stockings and so I went with the “Bottlebrush” heels from Empire. With their delicate laced heels it was just perfect! The super cute “Annik” hair was made by EMO-tions.

Thank you Tempe for another great shoot, chit-chat and picture, I hope we will have many of those this year โ™ฅ

Golden Times with [sys] and E.V.E Studio

We can be golden
Why donโ€™t we show them
All of the life thereโ€™s meant to be
We can be golden
Look what we holdinโ€™
Better than angels if you believe

golden-times-2

More and more I like the idea of blogging with friends. It gives so much more possibilities even if it might be a tiny wee bit more time intense as you need to find times when you can shootย  together, but they are worth every single second ๐Ÿ˜‰

This time it was the return game with Tempe. She did a wonderful picture of us both not too long ago and the deal was – once she does the pic and once I will. (Link to the post/picture)

So this time it was my time. First I thought about lingerie, but to compete with the picture Tempe did – impossible! So I thought about something different. I was thinking about, what I do love most and as well about the craziness we both have and came across an idea…

I IMed Tempe, asking her what she would think about a post with [sys], since we both like to blog them very much (yes I follow her blog and flickr certainly*grins*).

So it was a given, we needed to do something crazy or editorial or even both :p

We came across, that we both own the “Venus” dress from [sys], so Tempe was going for the black/gold version and I used the golden one. The basic idea was “No reigns, no rules – just go what you feel” and we both came up with something wild looking – I simply loved it. Again it showed why we go so well along, our craziness goes so well together :p.

For the set I immediately had the idea of a lot of gold, when Tempe sent me a snapshot of her styling. One of the latest releases was the “Flowers of the Golden Apple”. The huge golden apples come in 2 versions – once with and once without that sweet golden/white flower petals on the bottom. I added the “Splashing Droplets” in gold which were circling around us since they are animated ๐Ÿ˜‰

The cute balloons I found at the ‘Book of Daniel’ fundraiser. They come in different variations but for today, I certainly chose the golden one.

Last but not least, the golden ‘rain’ in the back, I created from the “Segmented Curtain” made by 22769.

We had again a great time and I experienced once more how awesome it is to work together with a real friend. More fun, more ideas, more challenge;) Let’s see who I will poke next… I think I already have an idea…

Real Friendship

blog version

Tempest & Wicca wearing Blacklace – “Passione – Leo Print & Lace Bra Set”

Today I have something very special…

Tempest Rosca, an incredible photographer, an amazing model and what counts even more for me… one of the ‘oldest’ and best friends I ever met in SL.

Tempest and me go way back and share quite a long past. We met in the early days of our modeling back on 2008/2009. That makes about 7 years… holy… time goes by!

The more I was happy when she IMed me and said “Wic.. do not blog the next Blacklace you get, let’s do it together!” God how iI could even think other than yes, when I thought about Tempe’s amazing pictures – I would get an original Tempest Rosca shoot!

Since I know how important a vision is for a photographer, I asked her if she had a special styling in mind. She just said “Hold on I send you a snap in a few but think lioness, princess, queen…” That sounded about Tempe… we get lingerie and she is talking about lions *giggles* I just love her. She has her own way of craziness and it seems to get well along with mine :p

When we met, while she was arranging the poses she had in mind we again had some great time for talking. Do you know that feeling.. you have friends, that you do not see or talk to every day, but when you met them it feels like it would be like that? That Tempe and me share.. we both have our own Second Life, but it crosses here and there and the it feels again so close and familiar, just amazing. We talked about old times, changes, new times and it felt so good to just talk away without any fears to say something wrong or something that he other would take wrong. Tempe and me never ever had that issue, we can talk about everything even about things we dislike or disagree and it never ever hit our friendship. That is very rare for me and with that it has one of the highest value. Exactly that to me is real friendship. We do not need kissy kissy everyday and as well we can talk clear and straight, without taking it wrong from each other – that can be so freeing and relaxing… I have no clue how long we talked until she found the right poses, angles and setting but I enjoyed every single second of it.

When I saw the picture I was speechless… it is incredible and perfect and again I know why I admire Tempe’s skills for pictures.

Thank you so much for a wonderful evening and an incredible picture Tempe – and yes.. next time it will be my turn and I am looking forward to it!!!

Urban Musing

ECLIPSE_WiccaFIN

This wonderful picture was done by the talented Tempest Rosca. We got the a theme for the last issue of the Eclipse Magazine, called Urban Musing. The trend becomes more and more popular. In many of the fashion cities you can find people who mix and match lingerie with normal urban casual, to create this new and modern look.

It was quite fun to experiment with lingerie and make something that can bw worn on the street ๐Ÿ˜‰

For more of those amazing looks you can take a peek on the February Issue of the Eclipse Magazine ๐Ÿ™‚

Spring/Summer 2015 – Color Themed

wicca1FIN

Recently we were asked for the new Eclipse Magazine to style according to the Pantone Fashion Color Report 2015.

(http://issuu.com/eclipsemagazinesl/docs/eclipse_magazine_april_2015)

“This season there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. An eclectic, ethereal mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals take center stage as designers draw from daydreams of simpler times.”

This description I found, when I searched for the trend colors of the actual season, because we had to choose 2 colors.

I decided for Glacier Grey and Toasted Almond to make my 2 styles and got chosen to be part of the magazine with them.

The first picture is my interpretation of the Glacier Grey color.

The basic for the style was an older dress of GizzA, the “Gloria Dress”, but it just was sp perfect for what I wanted to go for. Since I am rarely a friend of bare legs, I added the pants layer of the “Brigitte Body Tights” from Leezu.

I wanted the whole look more towards fashion than usual casual. I decided to go with the “Mia Madoona Chloe” hat from Miamai. The cool mask added some mystic, which I anyways love ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the second style used something I made myself for Wicca’s Wardrobe. I fell in love with the colors Toasted Almond and sand. Both are part of the Spring /Summer 2015 colors as well.

The “Violetta Top” and the “Yves Pants”, both in Toasted Almond. Both with a very trend print and perfect for the actual season. To complete the styling, I chose to go with hair from enVOGUE as the “Clarissa” style in my view underlined the fresh spring look perfectly. To complete the look I added the “Lydia” booties in Toasted Almond as well.

I would like to give a big thank you to Tempest Rosca, who made this amazing pictures for the Eclipse magazine, giving me such a wonderful sunny and spring look ๐Ÿ™‚
