Blues from London to St. Louis

Starlight Blue

Life was so busy this summer and we couldn’t quite make it to London in RL for the debut of Meiling’s 24 Hours Collection but, we have thoroughly enjoyed reviewing the SL counterparts to this fabulous collection. Meiling has embraced the mesh media in designing these new outfits and the results are enchanting. Sequoia is showing the Starlight Blue Lace Dress with the matching lace Dress Pants, an eye-catching combination, further enhanced by the addition of the new Sails Jewelry ensemble from Tosy Xue of WTG Jewelry. Scarlett Heels from Kalnins finish the look with an especially unique and elegant touch.

Jolie Bleue

Meet me in St.Louis? KymSara found some especially fun accessories to add an almost playful touch to her choice of Meiling’s Jolie Bleue Top and Skirt. She looks so adorable in the oversize Bold Ribbon hairbow from NYU, which seems a perfect accent along with the geometrically sculpted Plated Cuff Bracelet from GOTZSCHE. Both of these pieces are from the debut selections at L’accessoires. The styling is cute and timeless, but definitely hints at bygone days of summers at the World’s Fair. So why St. Louis you say, well it’s the home of the Blues and also the setting for the movie “Meet Me in St. Louis”, and in these blue hues you will really “Skip to My Lou” singing the Blues!

The Pageantry of Christmas Shoes

Mandalashoe #2

Covering the full spectrum of Christmas shoes available during the holidays would certainly take longer than the season would allow. However, one shoe maker may have mastered a microcosm of that fashion universe in their new toe boot, Scarlett StillettoBoots by Kalnins. Here KymSara employs her artistry and the Scarlett StillettoBoots to show the pageantry of the Christmas season with a beautifully refracted flurry.

Scarlett by Kalnins

From the bows to the toes this seasonal shoe provides the sensual wow to style up with so many outfits. The leather texture is even patterned with a raised pattern which speaks to the finely refined hand tooling available of only the most select cobblers and craftsmen. Santa Baby, just slip these under the tree, for me.

Scarlett by Kalnins

“The Scarlett Ankle Boot is available in 2 versions. The Classic provides a wardrobe essential with 3 texture choices: Black, Gold or Red. The Fatpack provides the best value with a variety of colors (Classic colors included) available through a base of 12 texture choices. Both versions come with a detailed HUD allowing for endless customization.”

The Birth of a New Reality

Meiling - le Garcon

We are very pleased to be sharing more extraordinary designs from the House of Meiling. This real life designer continues to send a shockwave through the SL fashion world from her Caribbean island home of Trinidad and Tobago. The texture, line and flow of Meiling’s SL designs are transmigrated from her real fabric sewn creations, creating a “New Reality” in SL fashion. A minimalist designer, Meiling has always made a point to emphasize that her designs are meant to “show the woman in the clothes, and not the clothes on the woman”. I think it is reasonable to say a new era in SL women’s fashion has begun.

Meiling - le Garcon

Comfortable and vogue is the Le Garcon outfit , a light creation of a soft flowing short dress which hints of a peasant blouse heritage. As the name suggests, there might be a wee touch of boyish influence, but the result is totally feminine. This outfit is made for the active avatar, the movement could not be more brilliant. While the Le Garcon outfit will definitely work in a very casual setting, we are happy to show, with a touch of glam styling you can effectively shift your eye-catching look to be perfectly suited to an evening event.

WTG - Nemesis Jewelry & Nails

Sequoia has opted for jewelry and nails from tosy Xue of WTG to bring that effect. We both were so excited to see tosy’s new Nemesis monthly gift set which includes not only his signature unique jewelry and nails, but a totally fresh look with the smashing bespectacled sun spectacles, some really cool jeweled sunglasses, with an awesomely fun animation that will have you pushing them to the top of your head or returning them to your nose to block the sun.

Meiling - Lady Sings the Blues

Meiling’s “Lady Sings the Blues” dress really sets the stage for any performer or audience member. This little dress could easily be both casual or dressy and i found it totally comfortable in both stylings. And yes, this dress is really made from denim! A bit of surprise at first for KymSara until she slipped it on. “The softest denim i have ever found”, she said, and we both love the look of the matched sheer overskirt, a very innovative approach!

The Nemisis set from WTG gets another look to show its versatility, and deservedly so! Kym was delighted to discover Kia Goodliffe is back with a fresh branding of her hair designs in the new shop. The vivacious Keely had a lovely cascade of curls Kym thought just right with look!
