Les Petits Details for the Ashraya Project

Today I have the great pleasure to show one of the first designs for the Ashraya Project (http://wiccamerlin.wordpress.com/2012/04/17/the-ashraya-project/)

The beautiful “Summer Breeze” dress with the matching hat… both made of wonderful shaped and textured sculpties .

The “Summer Breeze” ensamble will be available in 3 differnt colors. For my post today I picked the blue version. The dress is made in a wonderful aerial way so that you nearly can fell the light summer breeze that waves trhough the skirt. The huge ribbon is a wonderful detail, that adds a lightly playfully girl touch.

The “Summer Breeze” ensable will be the charity item from Les Petits Details for the Ashraya Project and such a sweet dress that matches the actual season in such an awesome way AND helps a good cause should not be missed in every fashionistas wardrobe πŸ™‚

The LM for this fabulous charity event will be given out soon and be added as soon as I got it πŸ™‚

For the jewelry of the look I chose one of the latest releases from Finesmith – the “Folieole” set in mapel. The wnderful colors and the unusual shape made the perfect finsh for my today’s look πŸ™‚

Medieval Moods

(Models: Falbala Fairey & Wicca Merlin; Picture: Falbala Fairey)

TWA – The White Armory... we all know the creations of Bee Dumpling. She made wonderful creations wh let every medieval heart beat higher. Many roleplayers are basically have a second home in her store πŸ™‚

For the wonderful first picture of this blog I would like to thank my little sister Falbala Fairey. I admire the style she does her pictures in and so I asked her, if she would pose with me for a medieval picture and if she would even do the picture :). The styling card of Falbala’s outfit you can find at Β http://falbalafaireyfashionblog.wordpress.com/

Now lets take a closer look on my outfit, the wonderful “Dance of the Maiden Gown – Lady Annette”. The whole dress carries pink, white and black as colors. The textures and fabrics are amazing and detailed made.. you really can see how much love and time Bee puts in her creations. The beautiful white blouse with the long and flexible arm sleeves, the incredible corset vest with the awesome arm parts… simply a dream. Every little detail is captured so intensive and real I rarely saw such a great and filigree eye for the details as Bee Dumpling puts it on her designs. The “Dance of the Maiden” dress you will find in more colors than the one I just showed… for that you better take a look for yourself at the TWA Mainstore.

Bring me back to life

TUNES

Today I was again in a strange mood. As I yesterday started to style the new “Aphrodisia” dress from Fellini Couture, I had something romantic lightly vintage with a huge hat in mind. I have no clue why, but while I was entering SL and staring at the login screen, that always shows you your last picture I came across a totally different vision.

Maybe it had to do as well that I listened to one of my favourite bands the whole day. One song of Evanescence was very close to me for a long time. That’s why I linked “Bring me back to life” in the beginning as it kinda was a huge part of my inspiration for the pictures and look.

But now lets take a look on the wonderful “Aphrodisia” dress from Fellini Couture and the whole look around it. The “Aphrodisia” dress is a white and very romantic dress with lots of amazing and different textures. The mixture of filigree lace, the opaque ornamented parts and the flowers makes this dress to a little piece of art. Joy Fellini again shows why she is on top of the SL fashion scene for such a long time with her genius ideas and incredible skills.

Right beside on top of the fashion heaven, we have yula Finesmith, owner and designer of Finesmith. She released not too long ago a wonderful male collection and the parts I am wearing today I took out of this one. I did not see any reason, if males can wear female jewelry, why the girls cannot wear the male jewelry :p. I just had to resize the “Heartology” necklace for sure as it was way bigger for a males neck :). The “Heartology” wings I took like they are without any changes.

The awesome hat is part of the “Halloween Horror Collection” if hats from Bliss Couture. Amutey DeCuir made a super cool hat collection for Halloween 2011 and I see no reason why we cannot use them during the year if it matches :p.

Maybe if you look at the pics while you hear the song you can get a part of my mood that I had, while I was doing this pictures. The first time I dared to make my own fog and parts of the hair and I am amazed what came out after all this hours between looking at tutorials, reading advises and try & error πŸ™‚ For sure it is not the end of the scale, but a wonderful new start for me to work on even more pictures πŸ™‚

Black, White & Red – Square Fantasys with SoliDea FoliEs!

Part of the Spring Collection 2012 of SoliDea FoliEs are the “Optical Dresses & Hats”. There are 3 different versions in color and texture for this amazing new dress. For today I chose the ‘Square’ version of the amazing outfit.

The hat looks like one of the asian ‘Koi’ fishes and it is a very extravagant hat. I always loved how Mila Tatham, owner and genius designer of SoliDea FoliEs took unusual ideas and made them fashionable πŸ™‚ The short dress is perfect for the upcoming spring season and I really like how carefully the red color is brought in with just the few little red balls and at the hat. I have an addiction for black and white and for squares for a long time – yes I am a child of the 80’s :p. So this dress really got my attention even if the 2 other colors are amazing as well.

To catch the red color again I took the new “Play Cubes” earrings from Finesmith. The square shape totally made it to the dress for me πŸ™‚

Too keep the look in a modern way I added one of the latest releases from Urban Lutz for the hair.

To see all of the amazing colors of the “Optical Dress & Hat” and the “Play Cubes” you better take a look by yourself at the SoliDea Folies and Finesmith Mainstores πŸ™‚

Dare to be hip and colorful?!?

Today I have the great pleasure to welcome a new designer on my blog. Dani Plassiz, owner and designer of Styles by Danielle. We all know Styles by Danielle as a wonderful casual chic and elegant gown paradise. The more the outfit I wanna showcase today jumped my eyes as I entered the Mainstore.

I was told to pick me one of the wonderful outfits. After I saw the “Groovy Poa” outfit I tried to find one that is more representative for the wonderful creations of Styles by Danielle because I thought Dani will kill me, if I would choose the “Groovy Poa” for my first outfit to showcase. But my eyes always went back to that wonderful colorful outfit.

Then I saw the cool “Catina” booties and the matching “LP” jewelry set for the “Groovy Pow” and could not longer resist…

The “Catina” booties have a HUD with wich you can chnage the seams of the “Catina” booties to every color you want. The amazing black leather texture is made so realistic. you can see the shine and reflection of the lights… simply amazing.

The jewelry set carries the simple name “LP” and just tells what it is πŸ˜‰ A wonderful set of little vinyl LP’s where you can change the middle color by a menu.

The Styles by Danielle Mainstore is really a paradise for lovers of elegant gowns, classy casual chic, city chic and even for the crazy people like me πŸ™‚ All the textures are wonderfully made and put on the prims and layers.
