Hello folks!
In my last post here, one month ago, i talked about some gorgeousness from Collabor88 and now that the October collection is going to be replaced by a new one i would like to show you another fantastic item from C88 which i’m sure you all already know and probably got (such coolness should be a MUST in our inventory).
I’m talking about the Hesed Neck Warmer from .Shi: i like it so much i decided to create a whole look (skin, make-up, hair, clothes, accessories) starting from it. And i love what came out.
So, i’ll shut up now and show you the pictures, then all the credits.

My Dakota gown

Yesterday i visited Collabor88 and, after waiting for everything to rez properly, i was really amazed at the sight of so many beautiful creations. Not that normally i’m not amazed by C88 things, but it doesn’t happen often that i like almost the whole collection, like in this case or like the famous anniversary case. I grabbed all the demos i wanted and went back home to try them on, cause the place was too laggy to try demoing there.
Just one thing disappointed me, tee*fy‘s stuff wasn’t out yet. You know, tee*fy’s spot is the first one i put my eyes on each time i go visit C88.
This morning – my morning, when yankees are probably sleeping and the place should be less crowded haha! – i went back to buy the things i wanted and i finally saw that tee*fy’s items were out.

And i drooled over the Dakota Corset Gown which i purchased without even trying the demo on.

Snapshot_029

Wonderfully texturized, this is one of the most beautiful things i’ve seen recently on SL. This is a perfect example of mesh which i don’t often see on long dresses. Look at the way it “caresses ” the body with every movement, look at the perfectly irregular cut, look at the high front slit sensually showing the leg, look at the belt which stylishly completes the look.
Ahhh…Dakota, so sensual and elegant at the same time.

More after the cut!

Feeling sexy ;)

Hello, lovelies :)
I hope everyone is doing good.

s t a r s

Yesterday i finally found some time to spend on SL, so i went shopping and, after falling in love for the gorgeous corset from Baiastice, i decided to combinate it with other great stuff to style a totally new look.
Now now, i’ve never been a thigh high boots person, so i tried the Bax Regency Boots on just for fun, i thought they could go well with the corset and the look i had in mind.
And – OMG – i loved them the exact moment i wore the demo on. They’re just perfect.

Adore me ;)

So sexy *_*

I am Giulia

Hello folks, i hope you still remember me and i hope you are doing good :)
Yeah, i have lots of things going on in my life right now, i hope i will be able to blog again as soon as possible.

Today i’m here for Squinternet, i was supposed to post before, but i really couldn’t. I hope she will read this, i’ll post it on my own blog too.

So, i would like to say a few things about her.

Last year, thanks to Cajsa’s Donna Flora A to Z Project i had the chance to know Squinternet Larnia. I knew her brand, her fabulous creations, of course, but i never talked to her before. After my post Giulia (yes, it’s her name) contacted me and we had a long talk, followed by others and i finally understood why people loved her so much not only as creator, but, most of all, as woman, as person.

Donna Flora I

Giulia told me her story, we talked about life, cancer, treatments, about fighting for life, about feelings, about friends, about love, we talked about many things. We never met before and we were talking like two old friends, it was simply amazing. Maybe speaking our own language (we’re both Italians) helped alot, you know it’s so much easier to say things when you speak your language :P  She put one million smiles on my face and she left me speechless: someone in her conditions, in her situation would easily give up. She had the strength, the will and the hope not to give up. She loved life. Giulia loves life and she makes people love life.

Donna Flora II

Donna Flora III

Second Life is a fantastic virtual world made of real people: feelings and emotions are even more amplified here. So i know, Giulia, that you are reading this. Hey, sweet flower, look, you are so much loved and that’s wonderful, see what you’ve done! Don’t give up, you’re not allowed to!

I am with you, we are with you. My heart beats with yours.

I am Giulia, we are Giulia.

Tesoro, la vita riserva sempre continue sorprese, tu non smettere di combattere, di sperare. Chiudi gli occhi e senti l’amore che ti giunge da tutto il mondo attraverso questa pazza realtà virtuale, oltre agli affetti della RL. Non vedi quanto è bello? Tutto per te. Solo per te.
Ti sono tanto vicina, ti voglio bene.

Donna Flora IV

Visiting Elysion

Sometimes they come back :P

Hello, everybody! I hope you are all doing good.
That weird thing called Real Life is keeping me really busy and i miss my SL, i miss my friends, i miss blogging. Some nights i managed to get online, but i was so tired that i logged on to stay only a few minutes, then off to bed.

One night i wasn’t that sleepy, i digged through my closet….erm…inventory, i put on some recent and less recent items and went exploring.
I visited Elysion, a lush adult lounge whose decadent and sensual atmosphere really enchanted me, so, playing with Phototools, I shot this snap:

After looking at it i realized i was wearing such cool stuff that i had to blog about it and Elysion was simply the perfect location for my shots.

Awake and Unfold

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” ~ Anaïs Nin

Last Saturday the 2012 Miamai Black Label collection was revealed during an immersive and beautiful show called “Unfold” which was about the painful but full of hope journey from our inner fears and desperation to the birth of a new life. From the dark to the light. From the cocoon to the flight.

It was a stunning and meaningful show, everything was perfect, the spectators had to wear a moth avatar to get in. Brilliant.
If you missed it, you can watch the video made by Thalia Heckroth , an amazing capture of an amazing event.

In the following pictures i’m going to show you two pieces of the collection, breathtaking dress and boots created by the talented Monica Outlander and Pill Kanto.
*bows to Monica and Pill*

The gorgeous skin i’m wearing is from Glam Affair, a special version of Amberly, it’s called Unfold and, along with some others, Aida Ewing created it for the show, only for the show, and i feel honoured and lucky to have them.

I’ll add some excerpts from the beautiful poem especially written for the show by Kathryn O’ Driscoll ( Keira Seerose inworld ) and which accompanied the show itself, telling about the transition from cocoon to flight. Here you can find the whole six parts of this touching poem, they should be read together and in order.

Finally,Grace

Oh, mother,
Mine creatrix, help me.
Oh, won’t you lend me some new air to breathe.
I feel I may stew to death in melancholia;
Will I see you there?

Exodus

They say that the blackness,
the ravenous cave, has devoured me.
They talk of me,
as if I am not here. Am I?

Hello there! :)

*suddenly enters the room, visibly excited, waving at everyone*

Hello folks, Olela is back :)

RL kept me really busy the last three months, lots of things happened, i’ve also moved. I missed SL, i missed blogging, i missed you! Now i’m back and my inventory seems sooo poor and full of old stuff, but this problem will be fixed soon with lots of shopping which has already started. It feels so good, oh yeah! :D

I received an amazing dress from the talented Aliza Karu, it’s one of her latest releases and i love it so much that i’ve decided to wear it in the first snaps i’ve taken after my return.

Covetousness

It’s called Covetousness, it’s mesh and also comes with sculpted skirt and hat which i’m not wearing in the picture. Aliza never stops amazing me!

Trust me

The adorable skin is the Pink Fuel item from the With Love hunt, the lovely hair is Ramona from esk-imo.

I took these snaps at Lea1 and played a bit with the Phototools settings, one of the new veeery interesting features of the latest Firestorm Major release.

I hope you’ll enjoy them, as much as my look :)

I’ll be back soon with some other wonderful stuff to show you, yayyyy!

Ciao :) xxx

Hope for Emilia: Rebuilding Lives, Restoring Hope

Hello, everyone, i hope you’re all doing good.

I’m super stressed ’cause of the mega heat Summer has brought especially in Southern Italy, plus i’m more busy than ever at work: fun, isn’t it?? :P

Anyway, i absolutely can’t complain first of all because i’m alive, then because i have a house, because i did not lose family or friends in the terrible earthquake that last May (the 20th ) hit the Emilia Romagna region, in Northern Italy, registering a magnitude of 6.1. In the following days many aftershocks and additional earthquakes struck the same area with terrible damages: 26 people died and thousands are now homeless, living in tents.

So, no, i can’t complain at all.

HOPE FOR EMILIA is an important event which started on the 22nd of July and will run  through to the 9th of August:  it includes a Summer Fashion Fair, fashion shows, an art expo and entertainment events to fundraise for the victims of earthquake in Emilia, Italy.

The talented and generous designers participating in the fair  offer exclusive items with 100% of the proceeds being donated to assist the citizens affected by the earthquakes.

Read here for more infos.

Please watch this video, created by the Pyramid Café Group, a video which explains well what happened in Emilia and the Hope for Emilia event:

watch?v=uS9sRZGuBOY&feature=youtu.be

*sighs*

In the following picture i’m showing the AD Creations exclusive item for the event:

Emilia

It’s a lovely 50′s goth mesh swimsuit which you can’t help but admire: Aliza Karu did it again, everything she creates is a lil piece of art and this time she did it for an important cause.      *Bows to Aliza*

Please, guys, come to the event and donate. Thank you.

Thanks Aliza, thanks organizers and designers, thanks Pyramid Cafè.
