Fellini Couture: The SL Dream Brand of Dresses

Joy Fellini has long been known as great photographer and she has, recently, branched out to designing couture outfits under her own brand, Fellini Couture.

The moment you step into her store, you will be submerged into Joy’s world of dreamy outfits. The dreamy colours she uses and the feminine yet strong and distinctive designs are the unique features of her designs and what makes her outfits so intriguing. Her designs also use a lot of sculpt parts that are used effectively to form a part of the outfit rather than simple attachments.

The gown I am wearing here is called Litchi Gown. To me, it looked like it had an oriental touch to the design, which is not from oriental cultures such as Japan or China, but rather something from more subtropical countries such as Thailand.

I congratulate Joy on her beautiful creations that forever will enrich our SL fashion lives.

Here, I matched it with a very pretty pink pendant from Virtual Impressions called the “Pink Abalone Shell and Silver Necklace” by Chrissy Ambrose and used a lovely skin with a very couture looking makeup from Dutch Touch by Iki Ikarus.

This will be my last post in 2009. I wish to take this opportunity to wish everybody a very happy new year! Where I live, 2009 will end in exactly half an hour from now…..and as I end this year, I cannot but wish that the new year will bring us all together more strongly, in spite of our national/cultural/personal differences. I wish that we can always remember to embrace forgiveness and patience. If we can’t even achieve this at individual levels, how can there ever be world peace?

Giving thoughts to these matters and wishing you all a very happy new year, I end this year. Thank you for your support throughout 2009!

Phoenix Resurrection by Phoenix Rising

When I first wore Phoenix Resurrection, I immediately knew why the designer named it so. It depicts a phoenix rising from the ashes.

It comes with a feathered crown, which, of course you don’t have to wear if you cannot find a hair that matches, and also luxurious feathers that cover the back of the gown skirt. If you don’t like the feathers, you are given a choice of a more plain skirt without the ornament.

What is so impressive with this gown is the top part. The upper area is full of glitter but in very elegant colours and as you go down, the top becomes very sheer as if it was using the finest of threads for the material. As you know exposing your skin, even with avatars, can sacrifice elegance in outfits making it look less classy. But this is a great way to show that little bit of skin without losing this. I have, of course, seen other outfits that use see through material but I have never seen one so sheer as if it blends into the skin.

The gown looks very slim when viewed from the front but once you see the side or back view, you notice how the gown flows away from your body and looking as if it was trailing behind.

I used a Gabrielle Gem Set in Antique White Pearls from Virtual Impressions. This is a jewelry store that makes such realistic pearls! In fact, when edo Tone wanted antique pearls to sell in his store, Chrissy Ambrose, the creator and designer for Virtual Impressions was who he turned to. So the design may be different but the pearl pieces are the same pearls that edo has in the Style of edo pearl jewelry, which I still think are the best on the grid.

The design that Chrissy came up with, however, is a little more decorative and she has a collection of antique pearls, white pearls, pink pearls and black pearls with the same design. As her prices are always very reasonable and affordable, it would be a great addition to have all four variations, as they look so good with gowns.
