Bourgeoise

Hello,

Bourgeoise

For this 52 weeks of color challenge, Pink, I could have gone all girly and cute but instead, I prefer to play a rich woman going to a party on the roofs of Marrakech, the pink city. I have never had any problem with this color, actualy, I like it pretty much and think it is elegant and feminine. Such a lady only wears elegant outfits and one of the first brand which comes to my mind is Donna Flora with its vintage touch.

A second brand evocating sophistication is Baiastice and the new line of Maxine shoes makes no exception. It comes in 4 different versions: sandal, platform, over-height sandal and wedges. The three first types are available at Baiastice mainstore while the wedges can only be found at the Shoe Fair 2011 which opens today 14th May at noon SLT. These shoes are perfect if you are looking for elegant high heels. The HUD is pretty easy to use with 20 custom skin tones and plenty of nails colors options.

Cashmere

Hello,

Cashmere

I have been paying a visit to Culture Shock today, actually, a bit more than a visit as the huge success makes it pretty hard to have anything to rezz. I admit I have let my avatar online there waiting for things to rezz for about thirty minutes at several times as all what I was seeing was awesome greyness. But perseverance and patience pays sometimes and I was able to grab most of the items I wanted and more.

Previews and blogs are great. Thanks to them, I as actualy able to navigate a bit the grey ocean and pick the Exile Hair as I knew their name without seeing anything. On the contrary, I was lucky to rezz and discover a store named Cashmere, where i have bought this very sexy bodysuit.

Cashmere 2

The absolutely fabulous glasses are from Mr Poet. You have to get them. They have tons of options for the ridiculous price of 250 L$. While speaking about accessories… have a look at this outfit. To me, a lot of its drama comes from the accessories. It is often the finishing touch for what you have been styling. In this case, the scarf from sur+, the glasses from Mr Poet and the bag from B@rerose are giving this sexy businesswoman look. To honor the so important accessories to any fahionista, Maylee Oh and I have started a new blog: Acces Libre. It stands for The Accessories Library. Pay us a visit there if you haven’t already, or if you are looking for a bag, a scarf, a hat, etc. to complete your outfit.

Taupe and the Silk Kerchief

Hello,

Chiffon

The Secret Store is finally being invited at The Dressing Room Blue and of course, Maylee Oh couldn’t just make a great skirt based on her latest release, she had to make a most awesome one! I am totaly in love with the print of the fabric, with a Art Nouveau feeling, rich colors and a silk effect. The skirt comes in two options, with and without a bow belt. I don’t know if the skirt will be avalaible when the TDR Blue closes its doors so you have to grab it NOW! For 60 L$ only, you have to get it!

I probably won’t have much time this coming days so i’ll cheat a bit and will already propose this post for the Taupe week of the 52 Weeks of color challenge. The star of this post is the skirt but the brown accessories and background are allowing to show the best out of it. Taupe is a great color, it is elegant and can be easily warmed up by small hints of more vivid colors. I am using it a lot in my outfits for these reasons.

Some words about the bag. I saw it first on Whimsy Winx’ blog and immediately Teleported to the shop to get it. It is a new release from the well known japanese creator June Dion of B@rerose. June offers us quality designs for very cheap prices. I often use bags coming from this shop as they are original with great textures. They come in several attachment points and in this case, you even get a smaller bag to use as a clutch for a mere 120 L$. It is not to be missed if you’re looking for nice accessories at a low price.

Yellow Pop Art

Hello,

Yellow Pop Art

When I saw this week’s 52 Weeks of color challenge was yellow, I considered skipping it as it is a color that doesn’t find much place in my inventory. Fortunately, the Modavia Pop Art show convinced me to still give it a try; mainly, once again, Maylee Oh’s creations for The Secret Store. Maylee was inspired by the work of Roy Lichtenstein, one of the most famous Pop Art Artist well known for his comics and popular advertising like work. If you take a closer look at the Crazy Banana cloak, you’ll see small gray circles which recalls the printing of Lichtenstein’s work. And by the way, for the background, i’ve chosen another famous Pop Art Artist: Andy Wharhol.

There are a lot of other wonderful creations at the event, some you can easily wear, some more Haute Couture. You can check more of Maylee’s designs on The Secret Store blog if you really need a final reason to TP there to acquire her wonderful work. My personal favorite is the blue dress but as the challenge was about yellow, this coat and the boots included in the outfit were just perfect. Note that you can get the whole outfit at the Modavia Pop Art show or separates at The Secret Store. The boots are so cute you cannot miss them!
