Fashion For Life is starting in just a few days and this year looks to be bigger and better than ever. Not only will there be wonderful designs such as this dress from Clio, but the organizers seem to have taken everything learned from every event and incorporated it into their planning to make your experience as wonderful as possible. I read the article at the Fashion For Life website on what they are doing to combat lag and was so impressed by the thought and planning. Bookmark that article because it has useful tips for steps you can take to improve your experience as well. Now, back to the fashion.
Clio Cardiff is fond of color, bright and bold saturated color. So, when I was thinking about where to shoot her Berry dress, I immediately thought of Two Moon Island. I headed back for the shoot and fell in love with it all over again. There’s several landscape photos of Two Moon Island on my Flickr. Continue reading →
Clio Cardiff, Bronco Graves and Hart Larsson have collaborated to create a fabulous avatar complete with skin, clothing and jewelry that is expected to be released today. The striking Efe skin with the Masai tattoo will be a group gift at PXL Creations and the other items will also be on sale there as well as the Efe skin without makeup. I don’t belong to lots of store groups in-world, but PXL Creations is one of them. Not only do members get a 10% discount at the store, but a few times a year there are lovely surprises like this gift skin.
The Maasai Outfit from Clio’s Pret-a-Porter is full of all sorts of win – from the fabulous linen fabric, the many options for the top to the bold coloring – a hallmark of her designs.
This fantastical dress from Clio Pret a Porter makes me think of a beautiful tango from the musical Evita. It’s called On This Night of a Thousand Stars. You see I am wearing This Dress of a Thousand Stars that could take you to heaven’s door.
On this night of a thousand stars
Let me take you to heaven’s door
Where the music of love’s guitars
Plays for evermore!
In the glow of those twinkling lights
We shall love through eternity
On this night in a million nights
Fly away with me!
We all scream for ice cream. I know this dress for the Fashion Designer Challenge is inspired by clowns and circuses and that is very evident in the collar, but when I look at it, it makes me think of summer days and waffle cones. This is an ice cream sundae of a dress with a little vanilla, chocolate, strawberry all on a waffle cone. And like that cone, it’s absolutely scrumptious.
For Cajsa’s retirement from MDR Photo Studio I went to the jeweled tones of Clio. Her Sabina gown in rich purple, the color of lent, symbolicly showing that something was being in given up – for the good even if it was sad.
Perhaps it will only be a hiatus, only time will tell.
Clio is a natural at creating slick, chic designs that would cling in RL. The type of gowns you would just KNOW that girl had no panties on underneath – no way she could with that slinky silhouette. Continue reading →
While reading the blogs yesterday, I read my friend Harper Ganesvoort‘s marvelous overview of Tukinowaguma hair. I already had hair from there, but her post was still a revelation – of how long its been since I went there and how much the hair has developed and improved. The first place I went after signing in was straight to Tukinowaguma Main Store – and was stunned by all the irresistible options. This one – Pincushion – jumped right into my inventory. Now, the vendor pictures showed no red hair options and I figured I would be tinting, but this is color-change scripted so I only had to click on the hair, the red button and test the many, many red options.
But…I would not say I was Harperized if it were only one thing. You see, I signed in this morning and surprise, surprise Harper had gifted me a lovely, wonderful and sexy dress from Clio. I should point out that Harper is not associated with Clio other than as a customer who gave this lovely gown as a gift. Of course, I had to try it on immediately.
Now that’s Harperized! Oh my, that Pincushion hair is made for back shots. And isn’t the train on this dress magnificent?
Clio’s Blooming Flower dress was the perfect choice to pair with the real flower jewelry from Petal Meg. Spring is just popping up all around me, and I couldn’t resist the tulip inspired skirt that ornaments this festive dress.
And of course I had to add the hair from Elle F because you know. I gotta do that brand new thing! 🙂 It’s cute. Continue reading →
Okay okay okay. The dress is FERNANDA – not FERNANDO. Perhaps Fernanda is the one singing? Remembering that fateful night they crossed the Rio Grande? What were Swedes doing in Mexico fighting for Independence? I’m so confused.
Cajsa said she was going to wear blue, so I felt obliged to wear red. I had this snappy little new red dress from Clio’s Pret a Porter so figured I was SET! Of course then, Cajsa got all patriotic and emotional in real life and sat watching all the festivities all over again on TV and didn’t log into our pixel world.
I’m a Kevin Bacon game geek. Yes, I still like to play it. It makes me laugh, because I always have my “ringer” I like to pull out – to wow others with my incredible geek-i-tude. Why, you might ask me, am I sharing this with you – wearing this gorgeous dress by Clio – Pret a Porter?
I guess I just finally decided that I should have some Holiday Spirit and let all of you achieve this same level of dork at parties. Actually, most people are usually fairly stunned when you pull this one off because it’s so obscure.
If you don’t know – the Kevin Bacon Game works like this – all movie stars can be linked to Kevin Bacon in less than 6 degrees of separation. So you say “Link Madonna to Kevin Bacon” and I say “Oh that’s EASY! Madonna was in Vision Quest with Forest Whitaker who was in The Air I Breathe with KEVIN BACON”. Continue reading →
