Ebony and Ivory : In Pefect Harmony

Fresh Desir!

Vivien Emerald ushers us into the spring fashion season with a spectacular series of gowns and costumes from DESIR Haute Couture that were designed for candidates in the Miss Virtual World competition. The Ashia Gown is a spectacular, strapless, layered design incorporating both light translucent layers and tone-on-tone silk for a dramatic and yet flowing look.
KymSara chose the noir (black) version of this gown and Sequoia the blanc (white).

DESIR White Ashia

Kym really like’s Yula’s innovative creation of a jeweled fascinator headpiece and the NEW Shameless Ensemble available from Finesmith Jewelry.

SHAME on me!

Sequoia chose a traditional pearl set from WTG called Pearly Shell to complement the Chinese Shena head piece which is included with the dress.

Ebony, Ivory , working together in perfect harmony !

Return to AlaFolie

Morning Glories and Violettes

It has been way too long since my last visit to AlaFolie. I was reminded of this when I spotted the AlaFolie shop at Vintage Fair 2012 last week. A look around at the lovely new designs there (and a few purchases later, including this Robe d’ete Violettes) and I was off to the main store! Of course I found some delightful things there too — but I digress. Pixi is doing some great things with mesh. This new dress comes with both mesh and sculpty options for the top, as well as a really pretty babydoll skirt variation. And you will love the variety of prints she has chosen to use with this design. I am always impressed with the lace details in AlaFolie creations. The lace motifs and the way they are integrated into the overall design add just the right delicate touch. Once again I found Lindy’s Kitten Heels to be a most comfortable addition, and a snap to adjust to the perfect color.  And, just down the way at the Vintage Fair I found PurpleMoon’s Coco sunglasses for the finishing touch. A perfect outfit for an early morning stroll around the flowered paths of Second Norway!

Dreams of Clockwork Ponies

I have always been fond of carousels, especially the traditional ones with the authentic carved horses. This charming small carousel is just out back of the AlaFolie main shop and reminds me of a music box belonging to a great aunt, which seemed a bit of a dream maker to me. So naturally I couldn’t resist doing a shoot there with my lovely new Camille dress and Boots Moutarde from AlaFolie. Once again the synthesis of lace and silk in this new dress is just delightful! With a cutaway through the multiple layers that adds a saucy touch while dancing, and a comfortable free feeling while strolling about, this is going to be one of my very favorite go-to dresses. There are two other color variations and, I couldn’t decide among them. Pixi thoughtfully provided a discounted option for indecisive folks like me – so I came home with all three! Watch this space for more pics in the near future! And the boots! What a find! A lot of my AlaFolie dresses have had shoes included in the package so I was aware that Pixi did most lovely footwear. But now the shop includes a special boot selection that will definitely tempt you. My pick of these stiletto heel ankle boots with the side bow is but one of many choices, colours and textures available.

Dreams of Clockwork Ponies

Tosy Xue has just released his “Shark Attack” jewelry ensemble from WTG Jewelry. It seemed a bit fierce when I first opened it but, I really love the detail and the contrast with this dress. We can always count on WTG as a source of the most wonderful and out of the ordinary jewelry!

and the livin’ is easy . . .

Summer Blooms

It’s still summertime and there is a bit of that livin’ easy yet to go before our gardens start showing signs of shedding their color. I have been so enjoying the shops at Vintage Fair and finding many delightful things and discovering designers i have not known before. Such is the case with ArisAris. This beautifully embroidered blouse caught my eye as soon as i entered their shop. The texture is simply exquisite and there is a matching motif on the back as well. It was also a nice surprise to find a gift of the leggings in the box with the blouse. I knew right away that a visit to Lindy’s would complete the look with her terrific new mesh beaded Sandye sandals. I think these are a must have and, she has provided a color change HUD to make matching them up to your favorite summer outfit as easy as a few mouse clicks. While this started out as a casual look, i began to feel like it was becoming more dressy and when Tosy Xue’s lovely new Sails Jewelry Ensemble arrived from WTG Jewelry i just had to add the fabulous earrings and necklace to finish the look. So – casual but dressy, comfortable and classic. Perfectly suitable for a stroll in the garden or an afternoon soiree.

Hope for Emilia – Cool Summer Breeze

Pixie green

No matter how you see things, with vivid colour or in a monochromatic mood, Hope for Emilia is keeping summer alive. As the cool summer breezes soothe the summer’s heat, so does a trip to Hope for Emilia satisfy that need for retail therapy. MOLiCHiNO continues to add the must have in mesh to our wardrobes, with this Pixie dress available in citrus green only at Hope for Emilia. The Pixie’s dresses design is so special and distinct, i have not seen any like it in all sl. So cute and demure the pleated shift design is so modest with a square cut neckline and capped sleeves, but still so sexy with it’s mini length. Certainly to catch more than a few eyes as you walk on by.

For a Sunny Day in Emilia

I always enjoy discovering a “new to me” designer — especially, one with a fresh look and a creative approach. A visit to Elmont Fashions at Hope for Emilia satisfied all these notions! Black & white is one of my favorite themes and Aubry Brinner has used it very nicely in her Daylight Sundress, an exclusive release for the Hope for Emilia Event. I am also enjoying the Grande Soiree Swirls Necklace fresh from Aidorou and still exploring all the delightful makeup colors from FacePaint, both available at the Hope for Emilia event.
