Designer Download — Betty Doyle

All of us at It’s Only Fashion are long-time fans of Betty Doyle with 166 posts (so far)  that feature items from Ingenue. It is a long love affair, but there is no seven-year-itch because Doyle makes customer satisfaction and convenience uppermost. For example, with the plethora of mesh attachments, some creators are throwing up their hands and presenting one option. Meanwhile, Doyle packages shoes for multiple mesh options as well as the old default foot. She is acutely aware that not all of her customers are following the newest, the latest, the trendiest and she makes sure they are happy, too.

Ingenue's Tricky Little Wicky

The first time Ingenue was featured at It’s Only Fashion was in April 2008 – the Tricky Little Wicky dress.

It’s Only Fashion: What was your first day in Second Life like? What made you stick it out through the learning curve?

Betty Doyle: I think I spent something like my first four or five days on Orientation Island. For some reason, I thought I had to learn to do everything before I went over to the mainland. I finally decided that figuring out scripting just wasn’t going to happen, so made the jump! I was excited by the idea of being able to make things from the moment I read about Second Life. I’m not sure I would have stayed if you couldn’t do that.

Shooz Nooz #4 Good Stuff And Boots

Well another chapter of Shooz Nooz is coming at you, and I’ve got good stuff this time. I’m kicking it off with these boots from  GLAMISTRY that are HUD driven and therefore you can make them YOURS by customizing all the bits as you like. I really love this in shoes. I know it’s not always practical but isn’t it fun when it is?

Next up are a pair of necessary loafers from DUH, I wouldn’t mind these in real life they’d be cute but great for bad weather. Continue reading

LET ME OUT – OOOPS I found This In Drafts ! OOOPS !

Rumpelstiltskin terrified me as a child. The fate of a girl sealed by her absurd braggart father, and a selfish, mean spirited elf/sprite/demon creature. Helpless against fate, that seemed like such a cruel fate to me. I never liked the story.

At the ENCHANTMENT Stamp Card event this round you can live the romance and pretties of the story without actually fearing for your life. As with each round, once you purchase an item from one of the participating merchants at their mainstore, you get a stamp card that you can take around and while wearing it – you touch the ENCHANTMENT vendor at each participating vendor. Once you get to the end of them, you can go to the prize room to unlock a special prize from one of the creators.

If you buy more than one item, you get more than one stamp card and that equals more than one prize !

It’s such a cool event, and even if you get locked in a tower and forced to spin straw into gold, chances are good you’ll sort a way out of it and end up with the prince. Chances are VERY good.

The Fitted Mesh Of My Dreams

It’s the season for cocktail dresses and great big jewels, so you can imagine my joy to see that Sysy’s has released perfect cocktail dresses for the season, and they’re only 95L at My Attic during the event.  I remember the first time I put on fitted mesh when it wasn’t compatible with my mesh body and the absolute RAGE I felt that I couldn’t wear them together. Seriously, what’s the point of a perfect world where you can’t be perfect?  Continue reading

The Alchemy of Color

112214_005

 

Alchemy is more a philosophy than a study. A belief that somehow base metals can be transmuted into fine metals, as water is into wine in Christian communions. In the abstract, though, we can think of alchemy as the process of changing elements by bringing them together. This modern kimono from Atomic has some alchemical magic of its own coming in 3 colors and 6 tank colors that can be transmuted with a HUD. The other alchemy at play is adding an overlay of a light leak to add some color to my blue sky. You can download that video and screenshot individual light leaks from it. I used this particular capture.

In this shot, you can see the gorgeous amethyst crystal necklace from BOOM at Collabor88. There is a lot of interest in crystals for use in healing and balancing our lives – a belief that they focus energy. I think they are pretty and that is all they need to do. The gorgeous manicure is from FLAIR.

Time for Decorating

I’ve been adding some touches around the house, and so I thought I’d share what I’ve been up to on a Saturday morning. Alouette has released a lovely table with fall decor and a clock, perfect for an entry way or hall needing a little touch.

I also put a coffee station right in my foyer, no more pesky walking to the kitchen to obtain coffee. Walking is for peasants I tell you !

Now that I’ve got a hot beverage, I guess it’s time to sort out how to play WoW again since the WoD launch. It’s hard, all these video game things to sort out.

I’ll figure it out eventually. Perhaps shortly after I have this macaron?

Or tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.

It’s Only Fashion: What was your first day in Second Life® like? What made you stick it out through the learning curve?

June Monteiro: My first day was hard, I did not know anybody and also did not know where to go. But I started researching blogs and sites about SL® and I started to see many of the wonderful designers we have here. It awakened in me a desire to be on their side, to also be able to make beautiful fashion as they did. After that I never stopped:  to learn, to seek, to conquer. Continue reading
