BOSL RFL Sales – 2.5 More Days Left!

VoguE – Serina Mesh Gown (BOSL RFL Exclusive)

There is only three days left to buy any of the exclusive items sold with the BOSL RFL campaign.  All items are sold in the participating stores as well as the BOSL Mr. Virtual World Theater where the grand final pageant of Mr. Virtual World took place.

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.

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.

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.

Styling notes:

Went To MAD Agency’s “Hunger Games” Party!

The Capitol fashion by Kay Fairey

On Saturday, April 28, MAD Agency, where I am registered as a model had a party based on a “Hunger Games” theme.  “Hunger Games” is a film based on Susan Collins’ novel published in 2008 with the same title and it has become known for the couture fashion that is worn by the people in the futuristic nation where the story is staged called The Capitol.

There was a styling contest and unfortunately I didn’t win.  But it was a lot of fun styling for this and that was the most important thing. 🙂

So this was my version of The Capitol fashion using a mix n match of different outfits.

I am not going to paste a link of the place where I got these outfits….as it will be featured by the Best of SL Magazine, May issue which will be published in 2 more days on May 1.  If you are interested to find out where I got them, please read my article in this issue.  Hahaha, that was some shameless self-promotion. 😛  But on a more serious note, I did not want to spoil the fun.

Styling notes:

  • Outfit:  Please check out the Best of SL Magazine, May 2012 Issue for the store name.
  • Hat:  Bliss Couture, Beatrice Hat (Birds of Paradise)
  • Shoes:  Nardcotix, Mana Miranda Wedges (Olive)

Sascha’s Designs Releases La Seine

Sascha’s Designs has a new dress and it’s goooooooorgeous!

Sascha Frangilli, owner and designer of Sascha’s Designs has come up with an absolutely lovely dress for those who love something romantic to wear.

Sascha's Designs, La Seine in Cream

“La Seine” comes in different colours but as always with Sascha’s gowns, you can choose three different skirts, making this a very versatile outfit for your wardrobe.  The set, of course, includes a big long skirt and a slightly shorter skirt with ruffles in the upper part, which I wore here, but you can also choose to wear this outfit as a cocktail dress with a short mini skirt.  The hat I am wearing is also part of the set.

Sascha's Designs, La Seine in Cream worn with Glamorous Accessory Set by Crystal Line

The jewelry set I wore here is a new release from Crystal Line which is colour and texture change.  What I love about this set is that the gem colours are changeable into soft and mellow colours such as the pale pink you see in this picture.

An Exciting Brand New Fashion Brand, Wildchild & Muse

Wildchild & Muse, Nara Gown & Fan

Eliza Wierwight has been in SL business as a well-known furniture creator with her high quality furniture and art pieces.  If you have even been to Frolic Mills’ resident or facilities that he owns, you can see a lot of her creations that decorate the rooms.

Eliza is now expanding her talent to fashion!

I am posting two of her first releases in this blog and the BOSL Fashion Feed as the first blog posts introducing her fantastic fashion creation.

The outfits are mesh based.  But Eliza is attaching regular and/or sculpt prims to create designs that she envisions.  Eliza is a natural with art and you can see this in her outfits as well.  Every outfit she sells always comes with fun and interesting accessory pieces that the wearer can choose to use or not to use.  Some could have hats included or jewelry pieces.  With others, it could be some other objects like this fan I am holding in the pics.

Eliza’s outfits are all art pieces in wearable forms while being a delight to the eyes.  She will be gradually releasing the huge stock of outfits she has already created in an outfit corner she prepared inside her store.  So take this opportunity to take a look at her furniture creations while you are there.  I can promise that you will be deeply impressed with the attention to details and quality she achieves.

The gown I wore here is called Nara Gown, which is a name that was taken from an ancient city that actually exists in Japan.  The gown is elegant but also very bold in its design and I was pleasantly surprised at the realistic quality of the ‘obi (sash like belt)’ she has created for this gown.

Wildchild and Muse is a new brand that is definitely worth watching.  Be prepared for some fashion-gasms!

New From Bliss Couture – Gayla Top

Bliss Couture, Gayla Ruffled Top & High Waist Lace Pants

Bliss Couture‘s new release is a lovely top called Gayla which is a ruffled top.  Worn together with the High Waist Lace Pants, it looks like an all-lace body suit with very exaggerated ruffles.  The colour variation is pretty impressive too, so

Here I am wearing the white version which can be accessorized by using so many colours as the point colour but here I used hot pink.  If I use red, I am sure it will look more grown up, sexy and elegant but I wanted to create a more fun look for spring.
