Lately I had a great honor… yula asked me to take a picture of myself with one of her newest jewelry sets!!! “Cross my fingers and hope to die”. It was such a pleasure and I was so excited… and then I saw the final advertise as she released the set a few days ago.
Even if it was pink and with flowers… yes I know I am not the typical girlie… I liked this creation a lot! I love the non usual ideas like the sweet jewelry flower in the mouth and as well how the theme of the flower was repeated in every part of that set. If you take a look at the earrings, they are not made symmetrical for left and right… no, both pointing in another direction 🙂 The great necklace again carries the filigree lines that make the petal of the flower part. For sure you can color the whole jewelry and the gems like you know it from the Finesmith Designs jewelry already, with the awesome menu that you have contained in each part of the “Cross my fingers and hope to die” set. You can color the metal parts as well as the gem parts. and the gemstones itself have awesome presets like always for different types of gems as well.
If you wanna complete the look of the “Cross my fingers and hope to die” set with matching fingernails I can suggest the “Rave Pink” nails also made by Finesmith Designs…
For me they matched perfect to the new “Cross my fingers and hope to die” jewelry set 😉 So, make your way to the Finsmith Designs Mainstore and see all of the great new creations that yula Finesmith lately designed… I sweat it is worth it 😉 Thanks again yula for the great opportunity to be on the ad for this amazing set 🙂
Today I received the wonderful contribution of gasqhe for the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser project. The wonderful red body suit carries the name “Reby” and as you can see it is not only a simple red body suit… gasqhe made an awesome fashion outfit out of a wonderful idea for a great cause!!!
The red bodysuit is great made with light and shadows and a light folds that make it just look awesome. For sure a total eyecatcher is the huge veil that looks like it would be in motion can pulled back by a flurry of wind. One more prim makes the amazing parted coat. So run to the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser Sim (http://slurl.com/secondlife/World%20of%20Beauty/205/147/1003) and make your part to help and get this awesome outfit for your wardrobe!
Usually I only use my own pics but this one is so nice I could not resist to use it for showcasing the Baiastice contribution for the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser project. An awesome red stiletto with cute lines and a sweet ribbon in the back. Perfect for every elegant dress or even a neat casual outfit! And do not forget all the money you spent will help the people who were hit so hard by the terrible disaster in japan! So please make your way to the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser Sim (http://slurl.com/secondlife/World%20of%20Beauty/205/147/1003) and see what else beside gasqhe and Baiastice you can get there, I am sure you will find a lot what you like and every single linden counts 🙂
I was very impressed as I got my first [sys] outfit and tries it on… for sure I saw some of them and I really liked them but having an own one even feels even more great 😉 The “Lydo” dress is a very short and very sexy dress with an extraordinary style that you do not see on every corner 😉 So for me it was the right stuff to find a matching scenery I liked to showcase it in. I wanted to some powerful and strong along with some movement or action… as the light future touch and the trial to combine futuristic style with avantgarde looks.. goes right to my heart.
So, lets take a closer look at the dress… the basic layer is kinda black corset layer that is done amazingly detailed with shadows and lights so that the folds and all the great little buttons! The top has a chest attachment and another attachment you can see for the skirt part. In the back we have a huge ribbon that kinda closes the skirt or even if a nice decorations as well 🙂 Again we see how great the skills of the [sys] sisters are if you take a closer look on the lines that close the corset in the back.. so detailed and plastically. Stockings and gloves are as well part of the whole outfit. The skin I am using for this post as well is from [sys] and it is called “Ysis”. The teal lips and eyes and the wonderful ornaments round the eyes made this skin perfect for the outfit 🙂
To see all the other great futuristic and avantgarde designs of [sys] you should make your way to their Mainstore and take a look by yourself 😉
Last sunday I had the great pleasure to walk the runway in the amazing Tres Beau Moonlight Show presented by the Passion Fashion Agency. I was allowed to showcase 3 wonderful outfits created and designed by Kimmera Madison, creator and owner of Tres Beau. The first one that you as well can see on the picture above is called “Francais”
The whole outfit caught my heart… it is so non symmetric and special, I really felt honored that I was allowed to wear it for the show. The basic is made with amazing detailed and very filigree textured layers, that are covered over and over by little ornaments in a basic brown tone but with many color highlights in it. The total center of the view for me is the half side coat. Only the back and the right leg are covered by the coat and the right arm is decorated with huge fantastic ruffles that go up to the neck and form kinda neck collar. The great sculpted belt that is part of the down part holds the whole coat in place. For the makeup I chose the “Night” makeup of the “Castalia” natural skin of Glam Affair with the dark smokey eyes. The “Xia” hair is done by 3636 designed and all the lovely jewelry I used for this styling, yula Finesmith from Finesmith Designs made 🙂
The next outfit gave me lots of fun to style it. I have a little addiction for retro looks and I rarely can style like this for shows or blogs so this one really made me happy 😉 The colors as well played in my hand as black and red are my absolute favours 🙂 so I just added hair from artilleri as the great glasses come already with the “Lucy” Fresh outfit 🙂 The skirt comes in 2 versions – the one you can see in the pic above and one that is a bit softer and falls down a bit more.
The sweet little cherry earrings,as well I found at artilleri one of my favourite retro and vintage stuff stores anyways 😉 But back to Tres Beau… as I said the glasses are part of the outfit and what again shows off the great eye for the detail of Kimmera if it comes to designing skills are the incredible wrist parts with the lovely bows!
My last outfit for the show was the “Ginger Jar” a very cute blue and white dress that’s is perfect for the actual spring time in my view 😉 The shoulders are free and make room for a nice and big necklace. The skirt comes in 2 options to choose from. Once a flexible version and one with a sculpted prim. For the chest part we as well have very nice made sculpted prim that gives an awesome realistic touch as well. I could not resist to add one of the great “Lode” hats done by Chirzaka Vlodovic named “Amber”
I hope you enjoyed my little review of the amazing Tres Beau Moonlight Show and if you visit the Tres Beau Mainstore you can see all the other lovely creations that were shown in that fantastic show and for sure many more 😉
Today I have the great honor to showcase one of the newest designs of NK Couture designed by Misha Flanagan. The brand is relativly new on the grid and definatly something to keep an eye on! For todayI am allwowed to show you the “Melodie” dress.
“Melodie” is a wonderful casual dress with amazing details I want you to take a closer look on. What really caught my attention is that the whole dress basically is made of the same texture and I never saw this made so interesting before! As well Misha included 2 different versions for the layer of shirt skirt as you can see on the olive version above. Once the lighter part ends with the belt and the other version goes down below the belt, the same option you have for the rust version as well 🙂
All the sweet and neat ruffles and attachments give the whole dress a very real look. The arm parts are decorated with wrist and shoulder prims and the cleavage is framed by anawesome ruffle as well. The bottom part of the skirt is made dreamy flexible. What took my eye as well is the cute ruffle attachment that surrounds the hips. Not usual and a very beautiful and nice idea! The black belt as well is part of the outfit and breaks the basic color in an amazing way. Ich you take a closer look at the buckle you again can see the eye for little lovlely details that Misha Flanagan has. With the olive version she made it as well in the next round of the Claim the Fame contest 🙂 WTG and congratz Misha!
At LeeZu you will find a new project that features guest designers. For now you will see a few outfits made by Muhi and one of them totally catched my heart 😉 The “Asymmetrical Bodysuit”. It comes in 8 different colors and … yes my color is black… again 🙂 The layers are made with an awesome texture that contains so many little details. To let it dynamic and asymmetric 😉 for the body you have 3 prims added. One collar prim and the down part on the right side of the jacket and same side the neat shoulder part. The left arm is decorated with 2 sleeve prims on eon the upper and one on the forearm. I simply fell in love with *grins*
For the jewelry I did not have long to think about… Finesmith Designs released new ‘summer jewelry’, just perfect and like all of yula Finesmith’s designs just another masterpiece of art in colors and shape!
The whole set contains earrings, collar, bracelets and the super cool ‘glasses’. You are able to buy them single so you can see wich parts you need or want 🙂 As well you have 3 different colors to choose from the one I am wearing is called “Ocean Winds” and the basic colors are a mixture of green, teal gold and silver. The others are one with a basic brown tone called “Desert Winds” and “Summer Powder” comes with a pink/purple mix. For this I had to skip the collar as the neckpart of the dress would have interfered to show it properly 😉 To keep the lightly wild style I added one fo the amazing hair parts of Miamai and for the shoes I chose the “Thigh High Boots” in black from J’s. The nails are for sure as well from Finesmith Designs 😉
“As in true Runway Couture fashion, we love to create beautiful pieces to benefit great causes! As I sat last night talking to a friend from Hawaii, she got an IM stating that the first earthquake had hit Japan. I knew right then, I need to create something to sell and donate the proceeds to Red Cross for the Tsunami reliefs!
I really hope you like this gown, as much as I loved making it and you do you part in supporting the relief efforts!”
Last days I had a very elegant parcel brought by the postman… the look was very familiar and I was shivering because of excitement and happyness… the parcel was from Poulet Koenkamp, designer of PurpleMoon. I could not wait and run back into my livingroom and openend the big box… took the outfit and was holding it in front of my body looking into the mirror… AMAZING!!!
I could not wait anymore and put it on, again looking at myself in the mirror. “Marilyn” in the color sapphire, such a breathtaking awesome gown. I saw a little letter in that box and grabbed it still exploring the amazing fabrics of that new blue gown with my fingertips.
We’ve got a new lovely gown today. I was asked to design two gowns for the GLANCE Fashion Awards 2011 Ceremony. It was an honor to design these gowns for two beautiful ladies, Patty Cortes and HoneyBear Lilliehook.
They said “red carpet” and “ruffles” and this gown came up, I named it “Marilyn” as a tribute to the sexy woman and fashion icon, Marilyn Monroe.
Patty Cortes decide to wear this gown in red and I added another 5 colors. I hope you like and enjoy this gown. There is also a demo version of the skirt available to try before buying it. Being a sculpted skirt I thought it would be handy to get to see how it fits.
The second gown I made for this ceremony will come soon!”
I read Poulet’s words and smiled… yes this gown really was made for a red carpet! The shoulderfree gown gives enough room for an amazing necklace and I chose to try the “Inspiration Celestial” set from Finesmith Designs. This set perfectly matched with this elegnat gown. With the silver of the jewerly I could repeat lightly the amazing sparklinig textures, that were added to the gown, for example on the right hips. The skirt is shorter and lightly open in the front so that your sexy long legs are showcased in a wonderful elegant way. For the backpart you have a wonderful train looking part that goes down till it nearly reaches the floor. The folds and ruffles are beautiful made and give the whole gown a very realsitic and dynamic touch. To see all the other great colors you can purchase that gown… you better make your way to the PurpleMoon Mainstore 🙂
Again I have the great pleasure to show you one of the February 2011 Inspiration Sets – the ” Inspiration Caoimhe Butterfly”
A wonderful creation that shows us again that if you have the right jewelry you do not need any clothing of fabrics on your body 😉
The whole set contains the huge waist part… let me name it a ‘skirt’ even if it is a very exclusive and valuable one ;); yula Finesmith again went into her deepest secrets of creativity and conjured another extraordinary set inspired by a wonderful model. The collar repeats wonderful the shapes of the skirt and belive it or not even the nipple shields and the incredible mask are part of this wonderful set. As all the jewelry from Finesmith Designs you have the possibility via HUD to change the color of every part. As well you will find the very useful resizer in every part of the set. You can rezize and recolor the whole “Caoimhe Butterfly” perfectly for your needs and wishes 🙂 If you wanna see all the other amazing “Inspiration Sets” of february 2011, make your way to the Finesmith Designs Mainstore and take a look.. and if you wanna have an advice… do not forget the big purse 😉 as the decision is really really hard!
