Wicca’s Wardrobe – Colorful Spring Mood ;)

Yes it is me even with colors *grins*

The weather was so nice and the sun kissed my pale skin and I remembered some of the latest releases of LeeZu and started to put some together πŸ˜‰ Rare but true Wicca can go colorful and casual as well. The warm sunbeams kissed my face and decided to go red and yellow for a bit πŸ™‚

The top is made by LeeZu and called “Miss Tre’s Blouse” in red. The sweet ruffles and the awesome sculpted collar really had the right touch for my spring look.Β  One of the latest releases by LeeZu were the “Cortez” pants here in light vanilla. You can decide if you wanna wear them with or without a shadow. For the belt and the straps on the right leg you have the possibility to change the texture with a HUD that comes with the pants. The belt and sleeves of the pants are made of awesome sculpties as well that give a lovely realistic look. To bring the yellow color more out I decided to wear the “Cat Tights” in yellow. To complete the lookΒ  I took the “Esprit de Sable” boots in red from Courtisane, “Ayana” inΒ  messy blonde from Miamai and the left “Kayma” earring made by Finesmith Designs. The skin is my actual favourite still – the “Castalia” skin from Glam Affair πŸ™‚

Now it is time to go for a walk and show off my new styling idea on the grid πŸ˜‰

Neiva Kumasi Couture – “Melodie”

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ WTG and congratz Misha!

If you want to see more of the the great designs of NK Couture, you can make your way to the NK Couture Mainstore and take a look by yourself!

Nefertiti Kimagawa – Sneak Preview of 2 new outfits :)

Lately I met Nefertiti Kimagawa herself and she showed me 2 of her amazing new creations that will be released in January 2011. I really enjoyed them and had the great pleasure that she gave them to me πŸ™‚

First I would like to show the incredible “Amalia” outfits also shown in the first pic above. A wonderful couture outfit that also has a very sexy touch. The skirt and top part are made of great sculpted prims and look like big petals of a flower. The top part just covers the needed spots and also a shirt layer makes sure you not get into trouble πŸ˜‰ A wonderful red roses belt breaks the black basic of the outfit and makes a great eyecatcher.

Another great highlight is the amazing hat…

… it is also included in the outfit. The hat repeats the great black petals and also a red rose repeats the color of the amazing belt πŸ™‚

The second outfit is called “Blackliquid II”

A wonderful black short costume. On the first look very simple looking but if you take a closer look you will see the sweet and nice textures and all the awesome attachments that make this outfit to something special. A total highlight is the great head pice… and yes I am addicted to extra parts that make a special touch πŸ˜‰

A wonderful little hat that carries neat flexible parts that move so lovely with every step you take. The same flexi parts you also can find on the great neck attachment, attached to the prim collar of the jacket.

So make sure to stay alert to the notices and new releases of Nefertiti Kimagawa πŸ™‚

Jeans are not Jeans ;) New Jeans from R:A:D!

Yes, it is true, jeans are not jeans πŸ˜‰ I searched a long time in SL to find jeans that let a female backside look really neat and sexy. Most of the jeans I found made a flat ass, or the pockets were too big… but now I found the perfect jeans for us girls at R:A:D

If you take the taxi to the R:A:D Mainstore you will find a bunch of different jeans, but all have one in common…anyways wich style… all will let you backside look so sexy that you will enjoy your avatar walking on your screen πŸ˜‰ A special design you can find is the asian zodiac version of the jeans. The have prim sleeves for the legs and are available in 3 different colors, black with red print-as we can see in the pic above for the dragon –Β  blue with dark blue print and white with black-grey print. All that for every of the asian zodiac signs! If you like skulls… you should try the “Hawk Skull” jeans. A used blue jeans with a neat hole on the left upper leg, where the skull seems to climb out πŸ™‚

Here we can see the “Tiger” version of the zodiac signs jeans in blue and the “Area 51” jeans, wich is available in black and blue. If you take a closer look especially at the seams you will see again the great eye for the detail, that designer Redclaw Inshan puts on his designs.

If you like it more uni you should take a look on the “rust” jeans. A brown and simple jeans, which is great to mix and match with everything to create a unique look ;). Another one of the new jeans is the “Industrial Skull” jeans, who is ornamented again with a skull print this time without a whole and on the right upper leg. The great black stone washed basic texture gives a very cool and smart look πŸ˜‰

All the jeans are unisex and the little back pockets fit perfect on a cute males backside too πŸ˜‰ For all jeans, also for the “Dusk Ripped”, you will also have a belt included in the basic version, matching to the color of the jeans itself.

Last but not least we have the zodiac jeans in white with the horse sign and a very special idea for the jeans, designer Redclaw Inshan himself showcases in this picture. The “Eagle” jeans have a print on the front side that will give one whole picture if you are standing with closed legs… a very cool and unique idea πŸ™‚

If you know the problem, that we females never find jeans that fit, you definitely should take a look at the R:A:D Mainstore and try that jeans… you will never wear different ones!

Winter Chic with Miamai!

One of the latest releases of Miamai is the wonderful “Henna” jacket in many different colors. For today I wear the black version and I added the great “Gypsy” pants in black also from Miamai as I thought they really match the jacket perfect πŸ™‚

The cool “Henna”jacket is made with such amazing details I will show you on a few close-ups to discover all or them πŸ˜‰ The “Gypsy” pants are a little older and not longer available but for me the went so perfect with the jacked that I could not resist to get it out again. With the great attachments, the lace covered hole at the knee and the great made folds it was the prefect addition for the “Henna” jacket.

I really was catched by all this amazing little details… all the pockets and the zippers… you nearly can grab it so real they are looking πŸ˜‰ The texture is also not just a plain black one… as always monica Outlander went through all the parts with her great designing and texture skills πŸ™‚

Also in the back you can see the sweet open belt round the waist, even the bottom seam is not just a simple straight line… really fantastic! Lights and shadows are perfect set to give the great cool and urban look.

For sure a highlight also is the big feathered neck collar! It adds an extravagant touch to the whole lookΒ  πŸ™‚ There are more amazing news of Miamai that I for sure will showcase the next days πŸ™‚ If you cannot wait make your way to the Miamai Mainstore and take a look by yourself πŸ™‚

Buisness vs. Private ;)

For longer I had a sweet couple pose idea and now I finally found the time and inspiration πŸ˜‰ For the business pics I used poses of the “Photoshoot” series made by Glitterati and for the private ones the “Romance” set by Body Talking.

The female business look styling I will have detailed here on this blog post, for the male one I just can guess what it was but not in all details πŸ˜‰

As the basic I chose a wonderful outfit from bijou called “Couture” The grey-black skirt combioned with a white blouse and that huge ruffles made a perfect basic for a female business outfit that also has a very female and stylish touch. For this outfit the “Stylus” pumps from N – Core looked perfect for me. High heels with a sweet ankle strap in simple black.Not to overdo it I just added the black “Lick Me” earrings from Ticky Tacky and the “7Luck” bangles from Mandala. For the hair I wanted some strict looking to underline the business theme but still some that is me ;). I chose the “Wilma” hair attachment from Baiastice that perfectly goes with the “Pulchra” skin on pale and the red hair base. The male suit we found at Hoorenbeek. The hair came from Mad.

After a hard-working day it is nice to have something comfortable you can slip on and no it don’t have to be the PJ or the jogging suit *grins*

I like jeans and some kinda cool top. So I do not have to stick on the couch if I suddenly feel that I wanna go out for a coffee or some like that. For the actual season maybe the white tank top from Maitreya is a little freezy so I wrapped around one of that great “Shirt-tied-around-Waist” done by COCO. The jeans that I am wearing for this post are the “Robin” jeans made by LeeZu. This jeans are really great made. All little seams you can see and for the leg sleeves you have 2 different options to wear. Also the “backside” is really great made. I rarely has such a nice shaped back side in a jeans. The 2 little pockets there have exactly the right size to for a really sexy ass πŸ˜‰ The male jeans come from LeeZu too. As we know LeeZu for the jeans are totally made with a lot of details that let the jeans really look very realistic!

This pose above is out of the “Romance” set by Body Talking, as all my “casual-private” ones in this post. It made the right look for a relaxing time for 2;) Too lazy to change my hair and skin I just kept the “Pulchra” skin with the red hairbase and the matching hairpiece “Wilma” from Baiastice.

A big thank you goes to Magnus Stovall for being patient with me during the whole shooting πŸ˜‰ I really enjoyed doing this pics and the making of will stay in my mind πŸ™‚ as something special.We really had a good time and lots of fun!

R:A:D – Partners in Crime…erm…Fashion! Boots for the perfect partnerlook ;)

R:A:D – Red Alert Design… a new upcoming fashion label for all brave ones that dare to be different! Show your character and your personality with extravagant clothing beside the mainstream! Young, modern, fresh, powerful and smart – if you are something special and wanna show it your should definitely now make a new mark on your shopping list. Genius and extraordinary designer Redclaw Inshan creates fashion that’s absolute trendy and hardly to outdo. Edgy and fierce designs meet elegance and class for everyday clothing! Both genders will find something for their needs in the R:A:D Mainstore… ladies and gents you should take a look πŸ˜‰

For today I would like to show you a few creations out of his new shoe line where him and her can go partners in fashion with a fabulous partnerlook for the footwear…

First design are the “Dragon Boots” for us ladies πŸ˜‰ This amazing sculpted boots are the highlight for every outfit. Every part is very well-shaped in every little prim and all that lovely details show off the skills and the eye for the detail of designer Redclaw Inshan.

I was really impressed as I realized all the options that you get with this pair of boots… first, with the boots comes a HUD that let you change the colors for most of the prim parts to every color you can thing off as it works over a big colorfield that makes really every color possible. That’s not all.. also the basic color of the boots can be changed always to 5 brilliant colors so it will be always matching anyways what you wear πŸ˜‰ The 5 basic colors are black, red, blue, green and purple and I will show all of them in this post ;). But lets take a closer look at the possibilities for changing the colors of the primparts… if you take a look at the picture above you can see that I shot 2 times the black basic with different colored accessories. On the left I changed spikes and chains to gold. So the great golden chains frame that awesome silver dragon that ornaments the outsides of the boots. On the right picture I kept the golden chains and changed the spikes only to a dark grey what gets the same awesome metal touch still. The basic fabric for this version of the boots is a plain leather one with amazing lights and shadows that bring out the dragon perfectly.

For the “Dragon Boots” also you can have a very special version… the “Dragon Boots – Dragonscale Version”

There we have already the other 3 colors beside red and black – green, purple and blue. This time the basic is not just a plain leather one it looks like a very well done dragonscale texture. For the accessories parts you also have that HUD that let you change the chains and spikes to each and every color.

The silver dragon that ornaments again the outside of the boots again is a totally highlight. If you take a closer look you can see how filigree and detailed it is! In the picture above you can see that you really can change the color of chains and spikes to what ever you want πŸ˜‰

Now it’s the time for the males!!! πŸ˜‰

Head up guys… there you can compete now with your girlfriends fashion and style! The “Spiked Dragon” boots for male open the world for the fashion aware males! The fantastic dragonscale texture also is the basic for the male version also, same for the color changing for chains and spikes…

There is only one light difference for the male version… the basic color keeps black…BUT the dragons change color! You can choose between 5 preset colors – silver, green, blue, red and gold!

If you take a closer look you also can see the realistic side of the shoes… at the inside of the boots there are no spikes at all as it would be really painful *grins* Even that detail was taken care of for males and females. So guys now you cannot complain anymore about not having stylish and extravagant boots πŸ˜‰ With the “Spiked Dragon” boots you are definitely up to date!

Last but not least for today – the “Cobra” boots…

Again we have a plain leather version as a great basic in the 5 preset colors black, red, purple, green and blue.

As we have it for the female “Dragon Boots” you can change the color with the HUD for the prim accessories and even for the eyes of the snake. This boots as you can guess by the name have an amazing cobra that decorated the outsides of the lower legs.

Again… it is amazing how very well every little detail is done.. for example take a closer look at the snake head.. you can change the color of the eyes as I mentioned and also you can see the sharp poison fangs very clear.. simply awesome! And all boots can be resized via the HUD too that is delivered to every pair of boots!

Ladies and gentlemen… make your way to the R:A:D Mainstore and take a look by your self on that great boots who re displayed in glass vendors to take a real look on them… dare to use the arrows and you maybe will find even more styles and versions of that great boots πŸ˜‰ and stay tuned on new releases πŸ˜‰

Xplosion – young, modern, urban, smart!

Today I have the great pleasure to show some of the great designs and the latest release from Xplosion. Owner and designer Kaliha Noel increased her label over the past years to an awesome ‘imperium’. I had the great honor to meet her ages ago, shortly after she started and to see this amazing brand growing over the time was really amazing. So it is for me a special thing to have her designs on my blog πŸ™‚

First I would like to start with one outfit I was allowed to model for the Glance Magazin a few month ago. I chose The “Woman Overall Break” pants. As a basic. The awesome used look was perfect for the styling I wanted to do. The loose strap on the left shoulder that let hang down the left front of the overall pants give a wonderful casual look. A perfect addition is the black “Hoodie” shirt. I just skipped the hood itself and used it as a zipper sweater only πŸ˜‰ Also the cool “Ladie Cat” shoes are from Xplosion. Neat little heels covered by great urban huge leg warmers are the best decision for the actual season also πŸ˜‰

Again I have to thank Harsch Sharktooth, who helped me and modeled for the male part πŸ™‚ He is wearing the “Chill Jeans” in light blue. This jeans also have that cool holes that make the basic for the urban-used look. For the top Harsch chose the hoodie and the gloves from the “Men Overall Break” pants outfit. For the actual season he decided to wear the “KBoots” not to get wet feet in those rainy days.

For the absolute highlight Kaliha gave me one of her newest skinst to test and they are simply amazing! I did not have to change anything… it just fitted perfect on my shape. As always the skin comes in different tones and with different colors of lipstick.

Also every lipstick color has 2 versions of eye makeup, one with just smokey eyes and one that is mixed with the color of the lipstick lightly, too! The body is awesome details and every light and shadow is in its place…not toomuch and not too less, just perfect. Also the skin does not have this ugly over glow, it looks lightly powdered and perfect for the everyday look of every fashionista. The face has stunning and great eyes and wonderful sexy and full lips with a very light gloss also perfect designed to give a natural but fashion look. The belly and back look very well-trained and shaped. For me “Nicki” is a wonderful and very realistic looking skin with all kind of perfect features you can have. If you take a closer look you can see that amazing hairbase and hair attachment. This was also one of the latest releases of Xplosion and it is called “Lyra”. You can purchase it in black, brown, blonde, red , silver and white always with the matching hairbase.

You definitely should make your way to the Xplosion Mainstore and see all of Kaliha Noel’s great designs and creations. You also will find a cute discount area where you can find some of the older creations as a give away or even very much discounted… I have to admit I nearly got them all πŸ˜‰
