A Silver Mini Dress From WigWamBam

WigWamBam was a store I accidentally found last year when it was still just opened. It’s not a big store, but full of fun outfits that I would enjoy styling. Yesterday, I visited the store again after some interval and found this silver mini dress that I simply loved. It came in two versions. One with short sleeves and the other with long sleeves. My choice was to go with the long one.

It is one of those simple mini dresses that you see quite often in SL but what sets it apart is the puffy shoulders at the top of the long sleeves that adds a classy image to the dress and the bold but interesting cut in the front. I can see why designer Joodle Fadoodle wanted a cut instead of an open collar. The high collar that is made possible by having a cut here matches so well with the puffy sleeves, giving the dress a different look as well as adding style. It looks very classy and elegant just by having these two details. This is what I love about designs. A small difference can make such a difference!

So instead of a simple silver or black & white look, I decided to add some red. I did that using jewelries from Chloe which, with its 150+ colour change feature, allowed me to choose the exact red I was looking for. Also I wore a fine mesh fishnet stockings in red. This pair of stockings was great as it gives you a choice of large, medium and fine mesh using different clothing layers. Then you can simply go into appearance and choose whatever colour you wish by editing colour. This practically means there is no limit to the colours you can make.

To complete the look, I wore dark red nail polish and makeup that gave me bright red lips from Pulse Skins.

For shoes, however, I decided to go with black & white, wearing a pair of ankle boots that was released from Courtisane, a new shoes brand launched by LeeZu Baxter. These boots come in so many different colours that it’s worth checking them up if you are looking for any specific colour to add to your look. And for hair, I chose a relatively voluminous hair from Tsukinowaguma which comes with a rather elaborate colour changing hair ornament. I changed the colour of the ornament to “silver white” to match the mini dress. I could have used red shoes and red hair ornaments but it seemed a bit “too much.” This way, I can bring the focus to my red lips and also the big red necklace I am wearing, from Chloe.

I am now ready to head off to a fun casino night in Las Vegas and maybe some dancing later.

New Release From Styles of edo

Mami Jewell, designer of female outfits for Styles of edo, has been releasing a lot of sexy and well made dresses. For this release, she made a series of a cocktail length dress called “Coppelia.” She had always been known for the quality of the textures that she uses and she’s done it again! This time, the dress itself is one the most simplest of forms as you can see in the pictures below. But it was this simple form was so effective to have eyes focus on the smooth and silky texture.

“Coppelia” is a title of a sentimental comic ballet performance with original choreography by the famous Arther Saint-Leon and initially performed in 1870. This name well fits the cute and coquettish look of this sweet dress that Mami made.

The skirt part is rich and flows out naturally from the waist with a slight puffiness and adorned with lovely lace at the bottom. But again, what is note worthy is the texture. I have really never seen better silky texture than what Mami makes.

See is believing. So here are the pics and please take note of the silkiness and the beauty of simplicity.
