Lamu Sim Renewal and ALB Dream Fashion

ALB Dream Fashion

AnaLee Balut, owner and designer of ALB Dream Fashion has just reopened her sim after a renewal and O…M…G…what a fun sim it has become!  It was always a very unique and exotic sim which I enjoyed exploring when I visited her store.  But now she has added many fun things to do and not only that, the market place is like those small but fun shopping areas with narrow alleys and lots of stairs that can make a stroll so enjoyable!

Let me try to list it…she has a donkey ride and a camel ride that takes you through the sim and explains the RL places that AnaLee took the hint from.  She also has a hang-glider that you can rez and fly around the sim with.  She has LOTS of animals…and I mean LOTS!  An elephant, a rhinoceros, dolphins and lots and lots of donkeys.  She has lovely cuddle areas, exotic palaces and oh so much to see and explore!

Of course, the ALB Dream Fashion store is located on this sim too and offers as much of exotic pleasure as the sim itself with its colourful and unique designs that AnaLee is so well-known for.  If you have followed modeling or fashion in SL for some time, you will know that Mimmi Boa won Miss Virtual World 2009 by wearing AnaLee’s off-the-rack gown when every other finalist ran to get a custom gown made for them.

So what’s more befitting than to introduce one of her latest designs called ALB Muse Dress that fits the exotic atmosphere of the sim so perfectly!

It’s not just befitting.  Just take a look at the details of this garment and how real the scarf looks with its transparent material that is embroidered with detailed designs.  The texture of the fabric used is also simply amazing.

To style this gorgeous outfit, I used an Egyptian-type makeup from a.e.meth that truly completed this look.

By the way, this is a snapshot of me enjoying my donkey ride.  Just beware though…this donkey stumbles a lot so hang on tight!

Forever Yours by My Precious

Agnes Finney's My Precious, Forever Yours

Forever yours…what a romantic phrase this is.  And it’s not just a phrase of words.  It is the name of a new gown that was released by Agnes Finney’s My Precious in February which is, of course, the month of romance.

To style this lovely gown, I used a similarly sweet makeup tattoo that is available from Noya Designs that has a version with a beauty mark and I also used a gorgeous jewelry set from Virtual Impressions that use diamonds and rubies, intertwined into a rich and lovely design motif.

Inspired by the Academy Awards – Orage Creations, Royal Blue

The long awaited Academy Awards have been announced!  And in the current cinema environment where high-tech graphic technology such as CG, VFX and 3D are becoming the norm, a french silent film depicting a relationship of an older silent film star and a rising young actress, The Artist, has won The Best Picture Award!  The film also won awards for best director, best actor, best original score and costume design.  Wow, I’ll have to see this film!

Watching news of the Academy Award inspired me to create a Red Carpet look and a new gown that was released by Orage Creations with its Italian designer, Elettra Gausman, was the perfect gown I was looking for!

The deep midnight blue, which is one of my favorite colours, gave this gown an elegance that had no match but with added glam brought on by the over-sized ruffle decor that gave spice to an otherwise simple and classic design.

I matched this with a new set of jewelry just released this past weekend by Virtual Impressions, Majestic Jewelry in Diamonds on Platinum.  The rich floral motif of this jewelry set was more than what I was looking for to complete my Red Carpet look.

Now all I need is a handsome man to escort me down the aisle.  Any volunteers?

A Brand New Store From The Designer Of Sweetest Goodbye!

I wonder if you remember a store that had really great quality mainly in casual wear called “Sweetest Goodbye”?  I was very sad when the owner and designer of this store contacted me to tell me that she decided to close her store due to busy RL.

But she’s back!  And not only back, she is coming up with even better quality items that is definitely going to make this store a place you need to watch!

A high fashion casual look created using monso's My Yagu Jacket

Morphine Janick, once designer of Sweetest Goodbye is back with a brand new store called monso!  She cleared out all her creations with her earlier store and has come back with two amazing quality mesh items.  The store is still very small with very few items but keep her on your watch list because, I know, she will soon be filling this store with amazing items just like she did with her old store.

So here, I wore her second release, My Yagu Jacket in white.  There are five colour variations available and in each folder you buy you will get a variation of sizes raging from XS to XL due to the difficulty of resizing or editing mesh items.  Just look at the quality of her texture!  Simply amazing!

Here, I also used a pair of shin boots I bought at League some time ago.  These are not a new release but I have always treasured this in my inventory because of its flexibility.  You can change the colour of these boots to any shade you want and each boot part that make up the boots design is changeable too.  In other words, you can practically create your own unique design and match it with what you are wearing.

League, Shin Boots that is super flexible with colour and design change

Welcome back, Morphine!  And I’ll be looking forward to seeing some great stuff from you!

AZUL Saleena Gown Worn With A Corset

AZUL, Saleena Gown in Amethyst & NV Corsetry, Medusa

In my bi-weekly regular live TV program that I host with Second Life TV in SL Japan, I wore one of the latest AZUL gowns that designer, Mami Jewell created for the Miss Virtual World beauty pageant in December last year.  I then added a corset named Medusa from NV Corsetry which was the brand we featured in my show on February 8th which was last week.

AZUL, Saleena Gown in Amethyst & NV Corsetry, Medusa

All the corsets from NV Corsetry are created by jewelry creator, Alexandra Nichols of Dahlinks Jewelry, which explains the amazing detail that you can see.  And then, her business partner, Khurt Vhargon, handles the scripting of all corsets where he allows not only a three-dimensional editing of the corsets but also allows others to edit the corsets for you, which is the same system as the one Bax Coen Boots are adopting.  This means, even if you are not sure if you can edit the prim corsets yourself, you can always ask for help!  All you have to do is message Khurt and he will be more than happy to help you edit your corset to fit you.

The amazing details of the build as well as texture of NV Corsetry corsets

This combination of the Saleena Gown and the corset became one of my favorite looks and I have worn this quite often since last week.

Since the name of this newly released corset is Medusa, I matched a hair from Wasabi Pills that is decorated with a snake.  By the way, I lived in a sub-tropical country for about two years as a child and I happen to love snakes!  I used to pick up stray snakes (hmmm, I guess all snakes are stray snakes…) and asked mom if I could keep them, to my poor mom’s horror.

This time, it’s in ten colour variations and there are men’s and female coats too!  This time, I matched it with the same Trendy Unisex Leather Pants as last time but one with a different texture and styled it differently.
