Fellini Couture for ‘Hope For Emilia’

Fellini Couture – Tentation W&B Hope For Emilia

“Rebuilding Lives, Restoring Hope”

Hope for Emilia, held through August 9, is a fundraising event for the victims of the recent earthquake in Emilia, Italy.  Many brands have joined in to support this charity project, donating exclusive items that are only sold on this event site with 100% of sales going to charity.

100% of the funds raised with this event will be donated to victims of the earthquake through a an official bank account opened by Emilia-Romagna region and all transactions will be public on the Hope For Emilia website.

Here, I am introducing this love gown that was released by Fellini Couture as the exclusive item.

“Fellini Couture – Tentation W&B Hope For Emilia” is a black & white mesh gown that is chic, elegant and glam!  I am also using an exclusive face tattoo released from White Widow.  This face tattoo comes in various colours and has the “without eye shadow” versions for each colour.  The one I am using here is the “with eye shadow” version.

The hat I matched in this styling is one of the new hats released recently from Bliss Couture.  Being a passionate animal lover, the bird in the hat was enough to make this one of my favorites.  Needless to say, it is stylish too!

The jewelry set is a new mesh jewelry that has just been released from Virtual Impressions.  At this store, new items are released every Saturday and group members can buy all new releases at 50% discount for the first one week period.  So this is one group worth joining if you have group slots you can open up.

Eshi Otawara New Release – Radiant

Eshi Otawara, Radiant in Red

This month, we see a new release from Eshi Otawara called “Radiant.”  There are colour variations that are made available but here I am wearing it in red.  Some prims that make up the outfit are scripted so that the texture moves as if it has a gleam adding a very unique and interesting feel to the entire dress.

The hat worn here is part of the outfit set and together with the dress, it creates a very lovely and avant-garde look.

Styling Note:

A New Release from Fellini Couture

Fellini Couture – Jardin Secret in orange

Jardin Secret in orange, a new colour added to the latest release from Fellini Couture.  It is a really sweet mini dress with a mesh bodice.  The hat is included.

I had the honour of modeling for the poster and I absolutely love the dress as well as the picture.  Thank you, Joy!

Each participating brand has given this event one exclusive item that will only be on sale until July 14th, 12 noon and 100% of all sales of these items will be donated to Relay For Life.

Today, I am introducing the exclusive mesh dress that was made for this charity event by Zalyn Bailey of VoguE.  This is a lovely black and white mesh gown that has sweet fused with chic.

Here I did a makeup for a print work, meaning that is good for blog or magazine pics but of course, this gown will look amazing with more realistic makeup.  I would wear this with deep red lipstick and maybe just an eye-liner…simple and chic classic makeup.

Styling notes:

  • Dress: VoguE, Serina Mesh Gown – RFL Limited Edition
  • Earrings: Chop Zuey, Misery & Oreos Set (イヤリングのみ使用)

Classic Elegance & Beauty, “Dotia” by Tres Beau

Tres Beau has a beautiful new dress called “Dotia” which I fell in love with right away.  It is truly a dress that is elegant with a classic style while it has this modern appeal mixed in such an amazing way.

The soft chiffon skirt almost blends into the patterned top with an over-sized ribbon tied on the side, giving this dress the glam it deserves while the ribbon also creates a perfect balance with the wide-brimmed hat that comes with the dress.  I added very short wrist length gloves to the dress as I tend to like short gloves in real life too.  It just shows that short gloves are not just for casual looks as long as it is not heavy leather and instead, made of more delicate material.

For a classic styled dress like this one, I also tend to like wearing classic and traditional pearl strands.  This double stranded pearl necklace is from Virtual Impressions made from the legendary Akoya Pearls which are famed for its luster and shine as the highest of all cultured pearls.  Genuine Akoya Pearls, actually only exist in antique jewelry pieces, however, and can have almost unbelievable prices.  The necklace made my Virtual Impressions is made to give it that aged look which explains the creamy colour of the pearls used.

Styling notes:

RFYre “Whyte” Full Bridal Version With Laced Ankle Boots

Right before Mr. Virtual World, Raven Pennyfeather of RFyre released two very unique bridal sets in white and in black.  I immediately took pictures of both but since then, had become so busy that I had to leave my blog unattended for this long.  *sigh*

But here it is.  The white version called “RFyre Whyte” which is a very avant-garde design as a bridal wear but can easily be worn as a non-bridal outfit and still look very cool.

This is actually a balloon pants set with an asymmetrical skirt and a veil type head-piece which can be removed.  Strings of beads fall from the all-lace balloon pants and move with avatar movement, which make this a really nice outfit to go club dancing also.

I wore this with a jewelry set from Virtual Impressions that has a very simple but chic design which I thought matched the modern pattern of the lace used.

If you want to see the black version, I have posted it in the BOSL Fashion Feed.

Last Few Days Of Ashraya Project!

sYs Designs, Babylon Mesh Dress (Eclectic Blue) – Ashraya exclusive colour

Ashraya Project will end on Monday, June 4th.  That means there is only five more days to buy the exclusive items donated by the participating designers!  So this will be the time for the last-minute shopping!

So today, I am introducing the Ashraya exclusive item from sYs Designs.

sYs Designs, as most of you will know, is known for the cyber, futuristic couture fashion and they have this very cool mesh dress that is an exclusive colour that is only available at the Ashraya event site.  I just loved the futuristic elegance that this dress has!

And here, I used a very reasonable skin that is sold in a fun, psychedelic Japanese store called Yome Soujo.  The amazing thing is that I am not even wearing any makeup tattoos.  This look can be achieved by wearing the skin alone.  How cool is that?  I wrote a fashion feature about this store in the May issue of BOSL magazine because I really think this is a must-see-store if you like fashion.
