Gizza – Steampunk (Female)

Additional Information:
This outfit is being sold in the Gizza store at Vintage Fair 2011.  You can find a map and SURL to all participating brands in this page.


Gizza just released a fun outfit for both ladies and gentlemen called “Steampunk“.  Here I am wearing the female version of “Steampunk” that comes with a hat, goggle and even a pair of ankle boots!

So all you really need to complete the look is skin and hair.  Of course, you can add earrings but with the ruffle in the front and gloves, you really don’t even need any necklace or bracelet.

I loved this colour combination too.

"Michigan Avenue" – A Winter Jacket From Tres Beau

Tres Beau has just introduced the “Michigan Avenue”, which is exactly what I wanted for the cold cold winter days. It’s a down feather jacket with fur and comes with a matching hat and leggings in two colours. When I first saw it I screamed and said “omg it’s so cute!”.

Tres Beau – “Michigan Avenue” in pink & white

I am liking it so much that I have been wearing this on and off for the past week and every time I go somewhere, I’ve been receiving IMs either asking me where I got it from or asking me for a landmark to the store. It’s one of those outfits that you just can’t miss.

By the way, we made a very pretty winter scenery where I live and I actually took these pictures at home. Doesn’t this outfit look so perfect in snow? But as the name suggests, it is actually a very nice city wear that can look really nice strolling down the streets of Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

The one I am wearing is the pink/white jacket and the set comes with both white and pink leggings you can choose that come in both pants and underpants layers. This outfit was released together with matching ankle boots that go with it so perfectly. The boots can be worn separately matching it with jeans or a mini dress with leggings and this alone is a must buy for the winter.

The Latest Release From B!Fashion

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.

B!Fashion – Bambolina in Fuscia

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.

Outfit: B!Fashion, Bambolina Fucsia
Choker, earrings, ring: Crystal Line, Mabe Pearl Accessory Set
Ankle Boots: Included in the set (but can be purchased separately and in other colours)
Face tattoo: White Widow, Capucine (silver)
Hair: Violator, Rough Attitude (shiny black)
