Gowns for swooshing around a dance floor have yet to be created in mesh. Mesh moves with your avatar but not so much on the wind. That’s why I’m always going to be secretly in love with a flowing gown now and again. Sascha’s Designs has released this one, and I’ve opted for the slinky one leg out version. I’m sexy like that.

The post title has no relationship with my photos, but it seemed a good companion to Gidge’s post today. There’s a song called House Without a Door, a jazz instrumental, but the mood of this song is more in sync with Pharrell’s Happy.
My dress today needed a stunning setting, so I headed over the The Chamber Society’s new dance club, The Sable Club. In keeping with the rest of the village, it’s a Jazz Age venue rich with period detail. My dress is more modern, in particular when seen from behind where its dangerously low back is revealed.
The dress is from Delirium Style – a special release for The Style Icon, a fashion fair organized by Legal Insanity honoring the icons of fashion past and present. I am looking forward to seeing who inspired the designers and how they interpret and reimagine their inspiration.
On Project Runway All-Stars this season, Viktor was warned away from his green dress by mentor Zanna Roberts Rassi who told him you never see green on magazine covers because it doesn’t sell. Awww.Poor Viktor only has green so he’s sunk. Green is my favorite color so I had to wonder about that. I realize it is not the easiest color to wear. If your skin has yellow undertones, some greens can make you look jaundiced. Still, it’s just a matter of seeing how you look in the particular shade, a bit of trial and error, and anyone can wear green in one of its many hues. This mint is fresh and springlike, full of new life and optimism. I added a fur wrap from Bliss Couture which is still going out of business. I know it’s been a long closing sale, but on the off chance she shuts the doors soon, you will want to stock up on her fur accents and hats before they are gone forever.
I had a hard time deciding what to put on today, and I might have to change again because I have more gowns than I have social occasions. This gown from MIAMAI fit exactly what I was looking for in elegant when I thought of NYE this morning. Continue reading
Every year, Sissy Pessoa makes a few gowns for the round of holiday cocktail parties and balls – and every year they are stunning. This year is no exception. I particularly love Gemma, this gorgeous body-con ball gown with the sweeping skirt that blossoms from below the hips.
I was underwhelmed with Materials the first few releases I was introduced to. I don’t mean that as an insult, but as a consumer when you hear creators raving about something for weeks and then you see and think “Oh, that’s all it is? Shiny?” it’s hard to disguise your let down.
I definitely agree that items with materials have more lustre, but other than some furniture items (leather) I just didn’t see the OOOMPH or a real reason to rave like it was the second coming. Continue reading
Miamai has again released an evening gown that is as elegant as it is amazing. Rich with movement and textured deliciously, this would be an amazing evening gown for any formal event for the upcoming social season.
Its just so happens that she also released some devil horns hair for Halloween, and I thought PERFECT.
Glamorous demon. Continue reading
I spent at least an hour flipping through marketplace looking for a Halloween costume. It just seemed, I don’t know, too easy to buy a mesh avatar and call it my Halloween costume. I’m not sure why. I will probably end up buying one, because I can never settle on ONE costume. But this morning I thought WHY NOT MAKE ONE! Continue reading
Mami Jewell of Azul is one of the go-to designers for red carpet events. Her gowns are always luxurious, dramatic and perfect for grand occasions. So, I don’t have a grand occasion to go to and no one is laying out the red carpet for me, but I decided to wear it anyway – just because it is so gorgeous and I am thrilled to see her moving into mesh creation. I chose to wear the new Adam n Eve lace glove applier for SLink hands – not because of any problem with the Azul gloves, but just to make sure folks know they have this option for their Slink hands.
One of the reasons I enjoy Fashion Week in real life and Second Life® is the abundance of high fashion designs that are haute, haute, haute. Take the Liana gown from Zanze. There’s nothing practical or sensible about and that is why I love it.
