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.

Great Spring/Summer Necklace from Finesmith Jewelry

Finesmith Jewelry "Mediterranean"

Finesmith Jewelry’s creator, yula Finesmith is releasing a series of jewelry that has lovely colours which will be really nice to style with the colourful spring/summer fashion!

I welcome these releases with excitement as I love to style using colours and by thinking what colours will work well together.  These chunky and colourful jewelry items will be a really nice add when I want that colour impact.

Each necklace has a name given that derives from the colour image.  And the one I have in the pic is called “Mediterranean”.  I am sure yula was thinking about the out-of-the-world lovely turquoise hue of colours that the Mediterranean Sea has when she named this.

Sascha’s Designs, “Purity” Styled In Two Directions

Sascha's Designs, Purity

Sascha Frangilli, designer and owner of Sascha’s Designs, has just released two gorgeous gowns.  One white, called “Purity” and another black called “Tainted“.  Like most of her gowns, Sascha has included so many outfits parts that allow infinite styling possibilities.  She even includes three different pants layers and five different skirt shapes.  For the price you pay, which is very reasonable to begin with, this is so much value for your money!

Instead of blogging both gowns, I decided to try two totally different styling using the different outfit parts in the Purity set.  So here they are.

For the first look, I used the ‘split pants’ and ‘hip split swirl’ which is a half skirt that attached to the right leg, leaving the left leg bare.  I also tried a slightly fantasy look.  The Exile hairbase that I used here is an excellent hairbase set to have in your inventory as you can get a whole fatpack of different coloured hairbases for free at the Exile store.  You will find the vendor placed right in front where the new released hairs are sold.

And for the second look, I used the ‘full pants layer’, ‘skirt layer’, ‘fluffer skirt’ and ‘big collar’ in the Purity set.  The parts called ‘big collar’ is the elaborate bust hem and shoulder piece that you see in the pic below.

I took another shot just to show another top arrangement that the set allows.  Here I used a ‘stola’ instead of the ‘big collar.’  Actually the possibility is just too many and the blog post will end up way too long if I tried to show all.  But at least this will give you a glimpse of the variety of styling that is possible.

Gizza Spring 2012 New Release

Gizza Creations, Kallisto Dress in Aqua

This beautiful gown is already all over the SL fashion scene being blogged by so many.  It is a very elegant gown with a divine air to it and I think it’s the simple beauty that has attracted so many.

What more can I say since I am sure enough has been said about this gown.  But one thing I must add in this post is that Kunglers which is the jewelry brand I am wearing with this gown is having a 50% discount sale which ends today!!  Run, run!

A Lovely Cocktail Dress From a Japanese Designer – Connors

Connors, Georgette Lace Cocktail Dress (Ivory)

I visited Connors just to see if there was anything I liked.  I found this lovely cocktail dress at Connors that was marked as a new release.  I loved how the lace skirt slowed out from a very low position, giving the dress an almost 30’s type vintage feel.

Connors, Georgette Lace Cocktail Dress (Ivory)

So I set off to style a modern vintage.  In other words, a look that had a taste of a vintage look without going all the way 30’s.  I picked pale lilac as a colour I wanted to add which was something I thought might not over-shadow the lovely ivory colour.  The gloves you see in the pic were gloves with relatively large cuff parts which I decided not to use to keep it simple.

It is always very difficult to find the exact colour shoes you want but with these pair of shoes from Virtual Impressions, you can use a HUD that comes with the shoes and pick what ever colour you like using a colour chart.  This is what I love about Virtual Impressions shoes.  As long as you can find a shoe’s design that matches, you never have to worry about the colour.

Katsucide Skins, Laura Pale (lilac)

The skin I wore here was a new skin from Katsucide Skins called Laura skin in light.  This skin store is also participating in FFL (Fashion For Life) and has a really great drow skin if any of you are interested.  And one of the drow skins “Sandra cendre – Cerise – Dark” is an FFL donate skin, which means 100% of the sales go to FFL.

So We Are Jumping From Spring To Summer?!

Ayiki, Vintage Flower Beachwear

It’s still cold where I live and I just started to think about spring fashion when already, some brands are coming out with beach wear!  How time flies!  lol

So here I am reporting about a brand new beach wear that was just released from a brand called Cre@ction Shop.  This set includes, a bikini, wide brim hat, a scarf tied around the wrist, a pair of cute sunglasses, a tank top (mesh), mini skirt (mesh) and even a pair of flip-flops all with the same flower fabric!  With this much items in the set, you can mix n match the items and have fun with the styling, but here I used other brand items for the accessories as it would look a bit too much if I styled it all with the same fabric.

This cute pair of sunglasses I am wearing in the pictures was something I found in a military store!  o.O  Of course, I never thought I would find anything “cute” like this in that store so this was a real find.

The bracelet I am wearing here is an ID bracelet and you can add your own name using a HUD.  It’s very easy and you can even click on the bracelet to change it into four different colour schemes!  This will be such a fun and casual accessory piece for this summer.

Have You Checked Out The Cool New Jumpsuits From Xanadu?

Xanadu's latest release, Jumpsuits "Kenya"

If not, you must!  I saw this outfit posted by Xanadu on her flickr page where she posted a pic of this outfit as a preview and omg…I fell in love! ❤

So here I am, blogging “one” of the four I now have in my inventory.  Xanadu Damiano released this jumpsuits in so many variation that it made decision making a very hard job.  They vary not only in colour but also in the print design and theme so you can imagine what a headache it was to pick just one!

A spring look using Xanadu's jumpsuit "Kenya"

Did I say retail therapy works to relieve any stress/hunger/irritation/frustration/whatever-symptom-you-may-have?  So here it is, Xanadu JumpsuitKenya“, which is the one with a tiger animal print.  It’s just so cool and yet it can look really stylish!

It comes with a narrow belt that uses the same fabric but here, I wanted to create a spring fashion, so I replaced it with a pale olive-green sash that matched the colour of my hat.  Then completed the look with a yellow bag as an accent and makeup with green eye shadow.

A fun make up using green eye shadow

But of course you can wear this without any changes also.  Both the top and bottom are mesh so you will need Linden Lab’s official Viewer 2 or any third-party viewers available that works with mesh to see it.

A Glimpse of RL Fashion…for SL. “Christian Dior Spring 2012 Couture Collection”

After the unfortunate and sad departure of John Galliano from Christian Dior, there are still a lot of talks about where the house is going with Bill Gaytten, who, in my opinion, must have such pressure taking over this mega-brand with so much hype.  His ready-to-wear collections have so far been received with so-so reviews and I must agree that they didn’t really impress me too much.

But his Couture line for the spring of 2012 was fabulous!  Although I do admit, I still miss John Galliano and his genius talent to perceive beautiful and spectacular fashion that was almost theatrical.

I know the fashion world in RL is already talking about 2012-2013 but the regular mortals such as us, we are more concerned about this coming spring!  So I decided to take up some favorites from Christian Dior’s Spring 2012 Couture line under Bill Gaytten as some of this collection definitely looks like something we can wear in SL!

The whole collection looks like a back-to-50’s type silhouette but with contemporary elements added for today.  Very elegant, fun and chic!  Definitely something I like!  So let’s see some pics from Gaytten‘s past collection for this coming spring.

Now doesn’t the poofy gowns look like something we have lots in SL?  And by presenting this, I am hoping that some talented SL designer will provide us with outfits that we can enjoy wearing in SL too!  *winks*
