MASAI MARA Closing September 30th

Princess of the Serengeti

This may be your final warning to run over and get these designs from some of Second Life’s most amazing designers at Masai Mara: The Solidarity Store, many which are exclusive to this event! It is rare that so many ethinicallly and geographically selective items are available in one spot so better grab now before they go poof tomorrow at midnight. So many have sung you the praises of this charity and the orphaned children it will help. So…. i will only gently remind you that you will be helping those who have so little and you will look fabulous in the process of doing so.

Princess of the Serengeti

Sequoia has chosen the brilliant colours of the Serengeti outfit and turban by Tres Beau to close out her african continental experience. The mesh harmem pants have a wonderful hip hugging fit and the disc hoop earrings and bracelet set is a spot on match to the flow of vivid hues and patterns of the turban to the top to the pants bringing a beautiful balance and exposure of skin. What a delicious way to show off the exclusive skin Delirio from Yoa Divine Spell.

Arusha at Masai Mara

KymSara has gone a different route returning to that which is familiar, showing off how well the cocktail dress Arusha, an EXCLUSIVE from Tres Beau at Masai Mara, can bring a wild flair back to our western evening wear. What a pity this dress will not be available beyond tomorrow. Even more the reason to rush over and include it in your Tres Beau collection before it goes back to Kimmera’s closet for good. Kym ever the world traveler added Tosy Xue’s Bamboo Ensemble from WTG showing off her love of picking up the rarest beautiful items she can mix and match.

Meiling and CC Celebrate Independence — 24 hours collection

Whiskey Sours in Afrika

A lot happened over at the Vade Mecum sim this weekend. RL designer Meiling and her friend and SL collaborator Chigadee London were celebrating their country of Trinidad and Tobago’s 50th year of Independence! If you rush over you might still be able to take advantage of the special 50% off sale on Couture Chapeau hats before Chigs sends them back to full price. Kym and i saw that the colours of the leaves were changing and beginning to fall on our walk between the stores so, we slipped into what are nicely transitional summer to autumn shades to showcase from Meiling’s 24 hours collection.

The 24 hours Collection is all about fun with fashion. Little unexpected touches and whimsical texture and fabric choices give these designs a special appeal. Sequoia chose the contrasting layered look of the Meet Me in Afrika Gingham Dress topping it off with new hat from Couture Chapeau. Kymsara found the asymmetric cut of the Whiskey Sours Blouse & Skirt to be just the right look for a fun evening at the Beach Club. And once again we both grabbed for the box of Tosy’s latest jewelry – “Mid-Summer Enesmble.” It was just too difficult to decide which outfit was best with this jewelry sooo, we compromised and both wore it! What a nice way to celebrate!

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!

L’accesoires meet LD Major

L'Accessories Jolie!
There is a new unique shopping experience on the grid called L’accessoires and Kym and i are pretty excited by the first batch of adornments and ornamental accoutrements being offered. The most interesting hat i have seen in ages comes from Glam Affair offering marvelous shade and a fashion forward look and is also available in many shades to match up with that late summer look. The Colorful Glasses by ~Tableau Vivant~ Kym featured recently in traditional black – i show just a sample of the many colours availble, as i easily by touch menu turned the bows gold and the frame red to match up nicely with the floral hues.

L'Accessories Jolie!

For me the introduction of these “L’accessoires” was the perfect opportunity to wear one of my favourite and most colourful floral mesh minis and matching shoes from Loovus Dzevavor, otherwise known as LD Major. I picked up this outfit at the Ashraya Project awhile ago and was thrilled to find that the full selection of Vikeejeah Xevion’s vibrantly coloured minis and shoes were all availble at the LD Major Main Store. I definitely encourage you to pop in Loovus Dzevavor and see the vivacious and dynamic plethera of patterns and fabrics Vikeejeah is serving up for yourself.

Summertime . . .

Summer time . . .

Don’t you just love the summer colors! It seems as though everywhere you turn something is blooming or becoming ripe for the harvest. Earlier in the summer season Meiling released a set of the most colorful little Mesh Sundresses and to keep the spirit of the season alive now would be a good time to bring them out. Perfect for a casual stroll among garden or the farmer’s market and just the inspiration to shop about for some eye catching accessories you’ve been seeing around the grid. Seq has added Tosy Xue’s ‘Rainbow, Rainbow’ sunglasses (which have the cutest animation to push them up and bring them back down) and she was so inspired that she handcrafted a set of matching earrings and bangles.

Kym chose Meiling’s Raymou Sundress and added her Butterfly Sunglasses from GoS. These glasses also have a clever little animation which uses a spray can to change the frame color. Her Canary Pomp Earrings and Bracelet go so well with this dress but are sadly no longer available since Ganked has left SL. Kym is also showing her Maya Hair, a summer release from Damselfly. You may have noticed that Damselfly hair shows up quite often in Kym’s shots, and you will probably be seeing even more as additional exciting styles exploiting the best features of both mesh and flexi are released.

and the living is easy . . .

Linen So Soft…

Linen & Silk

It has been a while since we had an exclusive feature of a pants outfit, and it seems only fitting that we break the long drought with an outfit deserving of preferential treatment. The mesh coordinates from MOLiCHiNO are just that! MOLiCHiNO is offering a classic set of slacks with linen wide leg and high button-down waist called Kay, and a wide selection of tops to complement.

Linen & Silk

Both KymSara and Sequoia not only loved the Kay pants but, found the Linney Halter Top goes perfectly and is a cool and comfortable combo for the warming days of summer. When we discovered these mesh coordinates it was a race to see who could get them styled up first. so we decided why not share both our looks. Sequoia quickly added the newly released Espressivo jewelry set from WTG for the perfect touch to the soft blue Linney top.

More Classic Linen

Kym’s turn in MOLiCHiNO is a nod to the fashion forward who want to look professional and have a wow factor. The slacks may seem traditional grey but with the addition of the Linney top in hawt pink, it says “fierce”! Kym couldn’t resist the bold new Folieole Ensemble and the Rave Red nails from Finesmith to add a bit of finished flair to her choice of pink and grey.
