Meiling New Release! Creme de la Creme Shirt Dress

Meiling, Creme de la Creme Shirt Dress

Meiling, a very popular designer in RL who originated from the Caribbean, is bringing her RL spring/summer collection into SL again!  The Creme de la Creme Shirt Dress is one from this collection and so cool that I seriously want it in RL!  I would so wear this for real!

Meiling, Creme de la Creme Shirt Dress

It’s a very simple shirt dress but crisp and clean using natural fabric.  It is, however, a very avant-garde design with two huge pockets that make this dress so high fashion.  And this simplicity makes this a very versatile design to style!

Here I styled it using blue accessories with blue as the point colour.  But you can do this using any colour and of course, you can make it all white too.

Wedge shoes with spikes from Gok in blue were a perfect match for this high fashion design and here, in order not to destroy the crisp and clean look, I used a men’s hair and makeup that uses very pale colours in hue of grey.

Clean makeup and the use of men's hair give this a very clean and sharp image.

New Coat Collection from Styles of edo

Styles of edo, that has been launching a lot of new items lately has now come up with two new coat collection to prepare us for the winter season. Vivace, a short coat with a pants set and also Andante, a long version with short pants and stockings have been released together with Tahitian Black Pearls and also a creamy coloured pearl jewelry from Styles of edo. Here I will show Vivace and Andante.

Vivace is a short coat that comes in 5 colours; black, brown, pink, blue and green. All coats have these colours weaved with black so none of them are bright coloured. Here I am wearing pink and as you can see, pink is really not pink pink, but more of a subdued colour that is “pinkish.” It has fluffy fur surrounding the neck and sleeve ends for a classy and elegant look. Here, I have worn it with the pants set that comes with the coat. A patterned shirt and a dark gray pants that matches the coat but these can be changed to any outfit you have that can be worn underneath.

I wore this set with a hat and also with a clutch bag that I got from one of my favorite stores that sells great accessories as well as shapes and skins, “+plus*.” Helena Compton of “+plus*” has many attractive bags as well as other items that you can choose from to match with your outfits and I must say, I must have bought out her whole store! I have to look for items I don’t have yet as I love her items so much. If you haven’t yet, you must go down and see for yourself. By the way, it seems like she has moved her store so if you have been there but haven’t visited for a while, try to tp from the link below and make a new LM so you have her new store location.

I wore this set with the Tahitian Black Pearl necklace. Tahitian pearls are known to be at the highest of quality in black pearls and the colour is very distinctive, being of a somewhat greenish black when it shines. edo Tone, was very particular in getting this colour reproduced in SL when he had Chrissy Ambrose of Virtual Impressions make the jewelry for him. And you can see that the efforts paid off as the pearls are not just plain black but generates a lovely greenish shine that must had been hard to achieve in SL.

The next one is the long version, Andante. Here I wore the black version but the sets come in the same 5 colours as Vivace, black, brown, pink, blue and green. But here, instead of the shirt that came with it, I wore the new top released from Baiastice as the shirt that came with the set was the same as the one that came in the Vivace set. I matched it up with the new bag that was also released from Baiastice and another one of the Black Pearls Collection necklace but this time in double strand to match with more volume that I have with the longer coat. Again, this coat can be worn with other outfits you have that can be worn underneath so long as it is not a jacket layer and it does not take up the prim parts attachment places that the coat needs.
