February Fameshed

Snow

The Secret Store has a new pretty dress available at FaMESHed in several colors ranging from soft and romantic like snow or vanilla to more daring and vivid tones like teal mixed with orange. While I was there, I have picked boots from Coco and a leather vest from Emery.

In my world, short dress + boots = 60′s look but I did not want to be too much of a babydoll so I have chosen the Ava Skin from Belleza, which suits a grown up woman rather than a young girl. The Virginie hairstyle is one of this week’s releases from Truth. Like always, the eyes are from Ikon. To finish the look, I am wearing the new Atiriya jewelry set from Zaara and mesh nails from Pixel Mode.

Scooter

Hello,

Scooter

I had written a great post and all about Suri Yangtz poses from [socialANGtz]. It is a great scooter, isn’t it? But well, I have made a mistake and deleted it so… I’ll just add a few words on the pictures.

Scooter 2

Next thing I want to emphasize is the Sn@tch crochet poncho. This texture is so great! I can’t keep looking at it and go “wow”.

Emma Portrait

Finaly, yes, I am designing shapes! Like it or not… I have started to update every single one of them and make new vendors and styling cards and stuff. It is Emma’s turn. This one was easy, it is one of my favorite, kind of the one I would wear if I were not using my own personnal one. And, it works great with the PXL Creations Linda G3 skin so… What about trying a free demo at my store?

Asparagus and Ecru – 52 Weeks of Color Challenge

Hello,

Asparagus 2

I’ve been a bit slacking on Luna Jubilee’s 52 weeks of colors challenge these last few week so I’ll try to make a post that counts for two: Ecru and Asparagus. Actualy, the vegetable is either ecru or green and the combination of colors works pretty good together.

For Ecru, I’ve picked a cardigan from Naith Smith Designs, the one kind everyone has in his closet for that time of the evening when the air become a bit more fresh. I’ve also purchased those great boots from Coco which are available at The Dressing Room for only 50 l$! I know you’ve seen them already a lot on the feeds today but seriously, if you haven’t been there to get them yet, you’re missing something.

Asparagus

For asparagus, well, i’ve cheated a bit. The clothes i’ve been chosing are missing that tiny bit of yellow that would made them really asparagus but confession of a fault, is half amended, well I hope …

Sn@tch is a store which has been in Second Life for a very long time with weekly new releases. It is a place I am often visiting for great basics or when I want a look a bit more grunge. In this case, I am using the Gilda top with lovely flower patterns. The skirt is a new release from League, it has the perfect length to be very sexy while not giving you a bitch look. Miel has released new scarves for yesterday Fifty Linden Friday. They are color changeable and will complete a lot of different outfits.

Asparagus 3

The Luka hairstyle is fun and young, it is Exile’s offer for Project FUR Japan, a charity organized to benefit the animals which are also suffering from the disaster.

In this post, i’ve been using three items you have already seen everywhere on the feeds. That is also an interessant part of fashion blogging, to see what people can do with the same items, creating different looks. And when those items are awesome, there is certainly no reason to look them down.

Umbrella is the Trend!

It’s all Maylee’s fault!

Silver Snowflake Umbrella

Some times ago, I saw an awesome picture from Maylee’s Oh on Flickr. She was teasing us with a new release of The Secret Store for the Happy Holidays hunt. Being the asshole i can be, I immediately bugged her, saying she was mean to tease us with such a great picture, that it was not humanly possible to wait for several days until the 10th December and the start of the hunt and so on. She was also wearing the fabulous coat when i TPed over to her shop, looking for something else, so i’ve threatened her to drool all over her coat for teasing us with it. That’s when she made me feel bad for bugging her for the fun as she gave me the said coat… but that’s how Maylee is, she is just great. I don’t know her for long but each time i’ve had had the chance to talk to her, it was great fun and i’ve been amazed to see how such a nice and funny girl she can be.

That is for the person, … now what about her creations? They are just the same! Original, fun, made with passion and care for quality. Maylee Oh’s The Secret Store is becoming one of those rising brand that you cannot avoid, that you don’t want to avoid! Seriously, orginal, beautiful clothes with textures and sculpties created by the designer at affordable prices, who would want to skip that? Fayne Khandr has written an article about Maylee in the 42nd release of Second Style Magazine. While reading the article, all i could do was nod and smile, totally agreeing, as Fayne was depicting with her talented pen the Maylee I know.

But this is not the end of the story. 2 days ago, Maylee shared wonderful pictures on her blog. She was using that totally awesome umbrella. As I was teasing her again about stealing the umbrella from her, she started to look for the landmark and finaly offered to TP me to the store while i was finishing my blog post. Not asif she had no creation work on her own… Yes, Maylee is THAT nice. After some (a lot) of chat and fun, we both agreed on starting a new trend! WEAR UMBRELLAS ! So now, please, be kind, join the umbrella club!

What’s New Copycat?

No, I don’t believe my title is orginal, I actualy think it has been used before.

Plum 3

I am bored, bored with what I see on the feeds lately. Everywhere the same, everywhere the same new hair, everywhere the same new clothes, everywhere the same new accessories.

I am bored with so-called designers. Everywhere the same textures, everywhere the same sculpties. Everywhere the same RL inspirations. Hey look, the latest Lady Gaga excentricity! … declined in 10 SL versions.. how original!

I am bored with bloggers. Everywhere the same designers featured, everywhere the same reviews of new offered review copies, everywhere the same SL shadows and pictures, everywhere the same lack of content. I have to say some of my favorite bloggers have left and sadly, they were not replaced. The last one being Fayne Khandr who is on a indefinite blogging hiatus. I am not close to Fayne, i’ve spoken once or twice with her and she seemed to be a nice person but really, I miss her blog. She was one of the few I was looking forward for new articles as she was actualy offering us something to read, combined with a great sense of style and pictures telling a story. I don’t know why she has stopped, I am not close enough to bug her, I respect her choice, but yeah, I miss her blog posts.

I am bored with SL fashion. Doh wait… Am I different?

Plum 2

NOPE! I am not different! I do exactly the same! I only need to have a look at today’s style to know I am not different! It actualy started with me being sick, staying home, calling doctor and going to the pharmacy to get my medicines, 2 weeks ago. There, the owner of the drugstore was not wearing her white blouse like usual but she was actualy wearing a light grey woolen tunique with violet tights, black boots and belt and violet under-sweater. I was like “wow” she looks good with that. Then I’ve been thinking about what I could use in Second Life to create the same look. So, no, I am not original…

Yesterday, as I was looking for hair to finish the look, I’ve found that Truth Raquel style in my inventory. I actualy had never used it as it is very special and I had seen some other people doing a great job with it. One of those people being Leah McCullough. I remembered having seen a great picture of her wearing the same style. I mean no offense to others having used this style but Leah’s job is the one that had struck me at that time. Leah was kind enough to let me use her picture for my blog. See how pretty she is and how good the picture is.

LDD II Sep 10, 2007

But back to the point, when I saw that style, i immediately thought “yes! that is the one i need!” Not because it looks great, not because it works good with the style, but because someone else did a great job featuring it already!

and here is my version of it.
Plum

Sometimes, I won’t blog an outfit because I am pretty sure everyone will blog it and I don’t think I am good enough to do better, Sometimes I still blog it, because it is that or nothing at all. I wished I could have the choice to blog something else but then, I am looking at the new creations, everywhere the same, and unfortunately, I have to say very few things will make me want to buy them these last days, not even the bloggers featuring them, including me… and that is boring.

The Looking Glass

Hello,

At the Looking glass

Today’s attempt at taking snapshots brought me to The Looking Glass. I told myself that if I had to crash, I might aswell do it in a good looking place. Designed by Markus Inkpen, the same creator as the famous No Sound sim, and Sharni Azalee, that fabulous sim welcomes you to discover fantasy places going from church ruins to old stables or even wonderland.

The Looking Glass

I’ve chosen to take the pictures in the village. Among all the wonders you will see there, what caught my attention was that parrot. Maybe the fact it is called Muad’Dib has something to do with it… (Muad’Dib being the Fremen name of Paul Atreides in Dune from Frank Herbert. It is my favorite book and one of the reasons why my blog is named like that, though the official excuse i’ve found was dunes was reminding of the curves of a feminine body).

Just to tell you a few more words about my snapshots adventures lately. Today, i’ve been able to take 10 pictures! Yeah! BUT… for some unknow reason, i’ve crashed at the 11th. Since then, though I was using Kirsten’s Viewer for the pics, I am unable to log back in SL with Snowstorm which crashes immediately. Go figure…

Finally!

3 days! That’s the time i needed to come up with that look. Sometimes, things are easy and plug in together effortlessly, at other times, you try to create a look, take the pictures and no matter what you try, nothing satisfies you. Finaly, after A LOT of shopping, I am happy, my wallet is not. I hope you’ll like this look as much as I do.

Tanaquil 20101003

Now I can tell you, i was not happy with my last 2 posts. I didn’t like the pictures much, that is probably why i didn’t feel like writing about them. Right now, I am still not happy with the pictures. I need to learn new techniques as the ones I am using have flaws which are slowly but surely getting on my nerves, like loosing quality of details, too much red, too much light. But at least, I like that look a lot, being a bit modern elegant native.

It is made of a combination of different new releases from regular collections (skin from LAQ, pants from LeLutka, hair and bodysuit from Maitreya, boots from Coco, jewels from Je Suis, belt from Night’N Day) enhanced by project themeory releases (hair feathers from Tyranny and gilet from Boom)

Tanaquil portrait 20101003

The eyes are a new release by Exodi. I like their color a lot. At first, I was a bit annoyed as the pupil is very small, giving a surreal look to them but at the same time, that is what gives the intensity of the color. At the same time, the line is called Spiritus so you cannot expect dull boring human eyes… Now, about to know if you can read a soul through the iris or the pupil… look into my eyes and try !
