VARIATIONS IN BLACK AND WHITE Take 2

One post only skimmed the surface  of the B&W galore present in sl these days, so here is a second take on this great theme.

The variations are within Vero Modero and  Legal Insanity.

The short Vero Modero  So erious eagle  dress  and the So Cute Minnie dress are paired here both with the VM leggings as well as with the Kitty Cat suit in white by Legal Insanity, the results are very flexible and fun outfits to wear outdoors, especially when you are dancing. I could not resist the male VM So serious hoodie Tiger, who says that male clothes are not good for girls?

The boots are by Kunglers, the shoes by Redgrave, the jewels by Je suis and Vintage Jewels (black Antinea collar and bracelet).

Skin is Meja by BLUSH Skins, like the make up, hair by Monso.

VARIATIONS IN BLACK AND WHITE TAKE 1

Black and white seems to be a very intense trend this spring, so here is my take on it with this first post dedicated entirely to Prism.

This graceful outfit, called Georgia black leather,  is a great combination of casual and chic, it feels comfortable and elegant at the same time.

It is completed by Antinea in black ( earrings and ring are shown here)  by Vintage Jewels, white pop boots by Gizza and the matching cowhide Hellen leather bag black and white  by Amarelo Manga.

Skin is Meja by BLUSH skins, like the orange lipstick, hair by Monso.

MARCH at FASHION LIMITED

Today I have the pleasure of presenting two very different creations available at Fashion Limited, a place where you can find really different styles and mix them all.

The common trait for the two dresses is the flowery spring feeling they both inspired in me.

First the NYA Shop Easter Dinner dress, a knee length dress, in white with floral motifs, it is a very easy to wear dress, a graceful and feminine addition to your wardrobe. I added shoes by Redgrave, white classic clutch by Belod and a fun headband by Lode.

The second dress is a long piece by Loovus Dzevavour in bold flowers, I felt very lively in it and I paired it with the Farewell My Love, Maleficent make up by LovelyMi, also available at Fashion Limited, shoes by Redgrave.

The hair is by Magika in two different colors, the skins are by BLUSH Skins.

FROM STONE TO GIZZA

What an amazing dress! or perhaps I should say dresses, since the dress I am showing you today comes in so many versions that it always looks different.

This Belted dress by GIZZA is a complete outfit in itself: it has a great belt and an elegant precious necklace in the same nuances of colors of your chosen dress.

I only had to add the short Vivienne boots also by Gizza and a croco clutch by Amarelo Manga for the snake soil version and a croco handbag by Belod for the Snake stone version.

Skin and make up by Blush, hair by Lamb, vintage sunglasses.

LOVE IS ALL AROUND….

UNENDING IS THE TIDE

Unending is the tide

crashing on the beach

dragging the pebbles

in a long drawn sound,

down in the depths

where waves are born,

where silence reigns.

Gently the waves lap the shore,

caressing the sand in a shy embrace,

a soft kiss that leaves no marks

on the unperturbed border

between the worlds.

Such is your love

Such is my love

Down in the depths

where passion lies waiting

for the next opening,

its chance for life.

A howling wind

stirs up the quiet silence

creating a torrid storm.

Nothing can remain quiet,

nothing can stand still.

All is captured in the vortex

for as long as it lasts.

A soft breeze carries scents

of old forgotten times, lands of plenty,

memories and dreams.

The delicate scent is powerfully intoxicating,

it flies everywhere,

no human, nor animal, no tree, nor stone

is left untouched by its golden hue.

Such is your love

Such is my love

Never meant to meet,

forever walking aside,

never together.

Such is our love.

THE STYLE ICON Fashion Fair by L E G A L I N S A N I T Y

Legal Insanity has produced a great event from February 7 to 28 2014:

The STYLE ICON Fashion Fair, a place where all the participating designers have brought their ideas of what a fashion icon is.  Whether a movie star or a singer, a philosopher or a painter, an icon (litterally an image from the ancient Greek) has become a common expression to indicate a person notable for his/her style.

I have visited the entire fair, getting often lost in the many shops and really interesting clothes and accessories offered in great abundance. I have chosen to photograph only one dress, by Legal Insanity, as a tribute to the brand’s creativity and outlook on fashion.

The gown is Vivienne punk chemical,  a perfect mesh, decorated with graffiti on an Union Jack flag, it is completed by fur (not shown here), since I decided to add the perfect Lode hat called Warrior, I believe this is the perfect accessory for our times….

The necklace Puzzle is also by Legal Insanity, the nails by Nailed it for Fashion Icon.

Skin by BLUSH Skins, hair by Boon, extra make up by White Widow and Mua.

Fashion is unlimited….

Fashion can be expensive, but all the designers have realized how much people love to change look in sl where it is certainly more affordable than in rl. For this reason I am going to explore and report on some of the fairs, special events, or ongoing shopping experiences available around the grid, where the prices are lower than in the mainstores, just for a limited time.

Today I have a special post for you, straight out of Fashion Limited where I chose two outfits that are easy to wear and flexible as well by LPD and NYA.

LPD offers us Clelia in a grey silvery color, I was lucky to find the perfect bangles at Fameshed, while the hair brooche and nose pin are both from Vintage Jewels,  a special issue for Valentine day. The boots are Vivienne in stone by Gizza.

NYA brown is a cute and easy to mix and match outfit, in your box you can find everything you need from hat to boots to tights and a scarf (not shown here). This time I only added the nose pin and body brooche in ruby by Vintage Jewels for Valentine day.

Skin is Sienna pale by BLUSH Skins, hair by Lamb, poses by Belod.

Time for a mask

I have decided to dedicate one post to carnival, the time when all licence used to be allowed and encouraged, the only moment when rich and poor, nobles and common people could mingle and be social together. Nowhere else this was the norm more than in Venice, the most romantic and exotic city of Italy, where east met west, where ancient habits and modern fashion used to become new trends for the rest of Europe.

I found the beautiful Prada Venice sim and decided to take some photos there, in a masked attire.  I chose the gown called Northern Goddess by Alba2Rossini, a great Italian artist and designer, who has not given us any more of her detailed and unsual creations for far too long.

I added a feather collar by Agnes Finney (another great brand now unavailable), bracelets and earrings Paparazzi 2 by Chop Zuey, leather half mesh mask by NYU for POE6, sandals by Laroo, hair and hair base by Boudoir, skin Sienna by BLUSH skins, make up by MUA.

Enjoy your time for fun and adventure!

CHIC MIX

Take 3 great brands, shake their outfits and accessories together in a big cauldron and what do you get?

CHIC MIX with clothes and accessories by AMARELO MANGA   GIZZA   LEGAL INSANITY.

It all started with Amarelo and a splash of Gizza, here in the golden  Izadora by Amarelo,  completed by its matching pumps and made even more alluring by the fantastic Papillon set in olive by Gizza.

Then how could I resist the amazing and sexy Gizza spiky white fur paired with Legal Insanity Debby cargo pants, Amarelo Manga Aurora Rose quartz necklace and rose Gizza Soho tote bag?   I could not, my photos show it clearly! This first version was followed by Debby camo black cargo pants by Legal Insanity, the black version of the Gizza spiky fur, Amarelo Manga Aurora red jasper necklace and red sunglasses,  with the  black Soho tote bag by Gizza.

At this point  a change of scenery was needed since the Gizza Urban outfit here is paired with Legal Insanity Jenna leather  jacket chevron black, Lorena boots by Amarelo Manga, soil  Soho tote bag by Gizza,  and the Sheldon Animal  sunglasses by Legal Insanity.

I decided to show the full Urban set in black by Gizza with its matching Soho tote bag in camel, Aurora citrine necklace and Lorena boots by Amarelo Manga, sunglasses by Legal Insanity.

Last but not least, is the great black short dress  Joyce by Amarelo Manga with its matching clutch and shoes, as well as the great Aurora rainbow necklace, Sheldon funky sunglasses  by Legal Insanity.

3. Then some really unsual choices for out of the box weddings: the Petalite by Zanze in gold paired with a huge brim hat by Baiastice is perfect for a high class lady, perhaps at her second wedding? You need to be bold to enter center stage in this sexy low cut dress!

4. This short silvery dress is Yara by Baiastice, for sale at Collabor88,  a really simple, yet elegant dress for a young informal wedding or a reception. This is perfect when you want to feel at ease, dance the night away with your groom and all your friends.

5. Last but certainly not least is the magnificent vision by Solidea Folies called Summer Bride.

MOREA STYLE so feminine….

In my country today is the last day of the long festive season, we celebrate an old witch climbing down the chimneys, covered in dark soot, she brings sweets to the good children and coal to the bad ones. Oftentimes Italian men tease us, since all women can be called witches at time, I prefer the term “benevolent fairies”.

So today I am showing you the most benevolent, soft and sensual fairies around, all dressed in Morea clothes.

First we have the short cute dress MOREA Donna Disco Silver in white, here presented with the Peacock necklace and Vivienne boots by Gizza, this outfit has a nice head band as well, such a perfect piece to light up your disco nights.

MOREA Ophelie is a sensual outfit with its tight pants and flowing top, completed by its jewels and brooche. I added the matching Gizza Vivienne boots and handbag, as well as Vintage Jewels earrings.

Then we admire the MOREA Paola in exclusive brown, a piece that easily makes me think of the roaring 20′s, I added the Finesmith  Good tiara, a great gift  received for the new year. This outfit is made perfect by the Belod Wonka clutch and Gizza Vivienne boots in matching color.

And now for the two fabulous gown: MOREA Anna is in black, such  a flowing, silky dream, it can be worn with its black or white fur (here not shown) I added only the full Finesmith Good set, shoes by Laroo.

Finally the MOREA Faith in white, this beautiful and romantic outfit is completed by its own jewels (not shown here), since I kept the Finesmith Good set and Laroo shoes.
