Barbarella Cioc has come up with yet another wonderful design! It is a lovely outfit called “Bambolina” in fuscia for which she launched a navy blue version also. She also launched a new enamel ankle boots which has a ribbon that comes in various colours. Of course, as usual, she has generously included the boots with fuscia ribbons in the set so the outfit and the ribbon on the boots have exact matching colours.
Here I am wearing the fuscia version of Bambolina with the ankle boots that was included in the set. The day I was wearing this, I had several people message me asking me where I got the boots that had ribbons that matched the outfit colour so perfectly and I had to confess that it was a no-effort-styling look with the matching boots included! These boots can be purchased separately too and are offered with ribbons in different colours. Being an avid fan of ankle boots both in real life and SL, these were boots I could not pass!
Bambolina can be worn with or without the long skirt that is attached to the back and if worn without, the outfit becomes a very cute cocktail dress with a ruffled skirt. Worn with the long skirt, it becomes a gorgeous gown with the frontal part open to reveal the legs. The long skirt has a layer of lovely black lace under the top layer of silky fuscia and a large ribbon that sits on top of the hip. So when worn, it gives the outfit a very burlesque kind of an image, making this a really fancy and sexy outfit for a party.
Here I wore this dress with hair from Violator, a face tattoo from White Widow and a gorgeous set of black mabe pearl jewelry from Crystal Line where my Japanese model friend Rena Vita creates some lovely jewelry, to add to the playful and burlesque image.
Violator is known for soraya Vaher‘s unconventional designs and the earlier hair she introduced were so unconventional and wild that it was rather difficult to style them with other designer outfits. But as you can see from this hair, the recent hair she has been introducing can be worn perfectly with other brands and look really good to.
White Widow has become one of my newest favorites with face tattoos* as Julie Hastings, who I had always known as a great photographer, used her photo shop skills to create some of the most feminine and lovely face tattoos you can find. They are very elegant, detailed and comes in various colours you can choose from as well as tattoos that cover both eyes, left eye only and right eye only depending on the design. Here I am wearing the right eye version of Capucine in silver.
*Face tattoos can be worn with SL official Viewer 2 or equivalent third party viewers.
The jewelry set is made with black pearls and black “mabe” pearls. Mabe pearls are basically cultured blister pearls that have grown attached to the shell of the mollusk. They are known for their super size but flat shape making them perfect pearls to be used as pendant tops and brooches. This set also comes as a white pearl version and as in many items made by Japanese jewelry creators, includes non-scripted versions, versions with resize scripts, chokers attached to the spine and ones attached to the chest. It also comes with A type designs that have the gold ring ornament around the mabe pearls and B type designs that don’t have this and therefore are just black. So you will be surprised to see the large number of pieces that are included in one set but I love how the creator really thinks of what customers might need. Here, I am using the type A designs.
