Couture Sweetness – Prism Design

Prism Design – Monica Tiered Dress by Journey

A new mesh mini dress from Prism Design features a sweet combination of polka dots and tiered ruffles that forms the entire dress.  Many colour variations are available.  I really love this dress as it’s casual but one that can be styled to be very fashionable.

I matched this with a clutch bag from MOLiCHiNO and footwear from Cliche.  The clutch bag is also available in many colours and each colour comes with a solid colour version and one that is two-coloured combined with white.

Cliche is a relatively new brand that is available on marketplace.  But as you can see, designer and creator, Atila Blackmountain, has some great designs that is definitely worth checking out!

AZOURY – A Place For French Fashion

In December last year, BLVD Agency did a fashion show for AZOURY and I must admit, I completely fell in love!

Designer of AZOURY, Mayhem Seetan, has many items using mesh, which is the new technology in SL fashion, but she also has many that only uses conventional prims.  This outfit was one of her new releases which does not use mesh so it’s also good for those who are not sure yet about wearing mesh outfits.

AZOURY – La Tenue Shining

The designs by Mayhem can best be described as fashionable and unique using great colour combination which can only be achieved by talented people who have an eye for colours.  As for design, the outfit I am wearing here demonstrates how Mayhem can take a simple mini dress and add elements that make it unique and stylish.  In this case, for example, the use of the orange tights adds so much to the entire look as well as the bi-coloured high collar.  And I love how she made the sleeves very sheer!

Most outfits have shoes that match and complete the look as in this one.  Flat shoes tastefully done are items I like in RL too.  Stylish flat shoes can sometimes make a look REALLY fashionable and I must say this look is something I would definitely wear in RL!

As I wrote in my earlier post, I had an emergency happen in RL which had since prevented me from going on a major shopping spree but AZOURY is definitely going to a store I need to raid!

A Sweet Casual Style With A Retro Look

I was walking around the Kensington sim in London, England and came across this really nice store called “Gbberish.” It had casual outfits that had a nostalgic look and had retro-looking furniture displayed as well. It even had footwear! The whole atmosphere of the store was so befitting to the British scenery, looking like a store I might find in Nottingham.

This Kensington sim, by the way, is also a sim you must visit if you hadn’t yet. You will find the Knights Bridge Metro station and buildings so well made with art deco bars and beautiful gardens atop buildings. So it’s worth strolling around and looking around. You will sure have a great experience.

Anyway…..so here are the two outfits I got at “Gbberish.” The first one, “Audrey’s Attic Puff Dress in Vintage Roses” is a short dress with a lovely texture of roses with that antique feel to it which comes with short gloves as well as long ones. But I liked the sweet short gloves to go with this one. I matched it with a similarly retro looking hair style from “Magika.” It’s a cute two-bun look and came with a black hair band with a ribbon on the side. So I edited the hair and changed the colour of the hair band to match the dress.

I also chose a cute looking pair of shoes from “Shiny Things.” I liked the retro look of this pair that fit the outfit perfectly. But for jewelries, I decided to go with the red/brownish colour in the dress instead of making everything green.

Necklace & Earrings: Lucas Lameth Fashion Jewel, Han Hana Necklace & Earrings Set (violet/red silver)
Hair: Magika, Betty (black & maroon)
Skin: Minnu, MMS-LondonFair, makeup 8b

The second outfit is a bit more casual but nonetheless sweet with a retro feel like the first one. It comes with this aqua coloured socks and also a bordeau coloured pair but I chose to wear the aqua one with this ankle boots which I also found in the same store.

The boots came in six colours and had really nice “different” colours such as “Bubble gum.” I just loved the whole taste that gave me a somewhat nostalgic memory of my childhood, not that I was actually wearing something like this.

With all outfits from “Gbberish”, I think you can really have fun matching them up with various accessories with various colours. I’m already trying out different looks myself!

Opening 2009 With Bandit Jewelry Shop!

Last year, before things started to get crazy with the holiday season, I had an opportunity to model in a show that had Bandit Jewelry Shop as its jewelry sponsor. As such, I was sent a set of jewelry to match the outfit I wore at that time, and I totally fell in love with this set called “Regal set.” But of course, we only get a set to match the outfit for the show so at that time, I got the ruby set which was, of course, the set with red gems. Since then, I had used this necklace and earring set with many outfits but after all, it was only red and I started to feel the need for other colours.

The “Regal set” is a gorgeous set of necklace and earrings which can be purchased separately as well, that has tear drop shaped gems. The necklace is not too long nor is it short as a choker and it’s also this length that makes it so useful as it matches many outfits. The whole jewelry pieces can be re-sized simply by clicking on the piece. This triggers a blue menu to appear where you can choose whether you want it to be bigger or smaller. This is a great feature as sometimes, I want to emphasize the jewelry whereas other times, I might want it to be a subdued ornament that compliments the outfit.

Here I have shown them in default sizes in the pics.

Aside from the Bandit Jewelry Shop having awesome jewelry pieces, it also has very good looking watches which can easily be used to replace bracelets. On December 31, a Rolex type watch was just released which simply look so real! The second hand even moves to mark the seconds! For those who want something more feminine, there are bracelet type watches too like the “Lady Marquise Watch” which I have shown below.

Watches for men are also available so this can be a great Valentine Day present which some of you might already have started to think about.

Bandit Jewelry Shop – Lady Marquise Watch, Black & White


And not only does this place have jewelry and watches, it even has footwear that are simply Divine! These sandals with lots of crystals are so pretty and great matches for a party look. As any shoes lover will know, footwear can do wonders to the whole look and the ones you can find in this store are awesome as you can see here. By the way, these sandals are re-sizeable too and they can also be purchased at Jador too.

So I used these items and wore them with a dainty black dress from A La Folie’s. Hmmm…I should have used the Marquise watch instead of this one with this particular outfit but oh well….I must say I was over excited about this watch as it simply looked so real and wanted to try it so much. 😛

"Cabaret" Costume From Casa del Shai

Casa del Shai has released a costume that was worn by lead actress, Liza Minnelli, in a 1972 movie, “Cabaret.” The signature bowler hat look is revived with awesome texture that comes with the bowler hat in the set. It has a hat with hair (worn here) and also one without hair in the set.

Along with this set, the bowler hat with different coloured ribbons, was also released which can be purchased for a vendor placed right close to the costume vendor. So if you like the hat and want to match it with some other outfit you have, you can purchase the bowler hat alone.

For shoes, I used the new Styles of edo pumps that have an impression shine and very nice shape. In SL, there are many nice and decorative shoes but it’s not easy to find good shaped shoes that are not only good looking but simple. With this look, however, I wanted something very simple so this pair was perfect!

This could be a nice outfit for dancers who work in clubs too. Look sexy and stylish!



Outfit (includes hat, hair & stockings): Casa del Shai, Mein Herr Full Costume

Shoes: Styles of edo, EIRIS Straight-Strap-pointed-pumps (black)

Yes, it’s Discord again!!! Whoooot!


Yup it’s me and Discord again. One of my fav Japanese stores when I don’t feel like wearing formal gowns. The outfits here are avanguard, a bit grunge, unique and what’s best, so reasonable!

This red outfit, RETSU-ZEN, for example is being sold for ONLY 99L! And look at the fine details! I also love how the prim parts move as I walk. RETSU-ZEN comes in 6 colours. Note how the “obi (the ribbon part)” and the bottom prim parts add such movement to the outfit. The rear view is quite striking too.


I am wearing this with Discord’s newly released SOKU-RI sandals. Discord outfits have so much impact that a regular pair of sandals or shoes will be hard to match. But these sandals match perfectly and it comes with a colour changing feature where you can click on each shoe to change the colour into a total of 8 colours. So if you have one pair, you can match it up with any of Discord’s outfits in the store. I also love the small details like the tiny charm of a chain that is added just for fun. This awesome sandal is a whopping 120L! Not bad at all!

The necklace and earrings I am wearing are from RYCA. I needed something in silver colour, as the outfit has a bit of silver around the chest area, and something with enough volume so it won’t get buried under the dynamic impact RETSU-ZEN has.


Outfit: Discord, RETSU-ZEN red
Sandal: Discord, SOKU-RI (colour changing, 8 colours)
Necklace: RYCA, Crown Platinum
Earrings: RYCA, freebies (both gold and silver earrings come in this set)
Hair: Discord, prim hair KISARAGI black
