Missandei

Hello Readers!

Dead Dollz is likely most known for her amazing gowns, but Kiddo Oh has some amazing creations for various events, including The Fantasy Collective. In the above photo I am wearing her Missandei top in ivory. It comes in a few other colors and has a HUD that changes the color of the band, ribbon and metal clasp. I know you have heard me say it before, but options rock and I appreciate a designer who makes a color changing HUD a part of their designs as it just makes their items that much more versatile. I coupled the look with some of my favorites and a couple of new finds. Here are all the links you will need to achieve this look:

Oh and I am of course using a KaTink pose, one from the new Greyson set. My nails are from the French Mani Spring Beauty Set by Nailed It.

Happy Shopping!

Kunoichi Koshino

geisha final may2015

Hello Readers!

I was thrilled to be asked to to be a judge for this round of Colour of Couture! The task for their challenge was:

“Junko Koshino is one of Japan’s most highly acclaimed and celebrated fashion designers. She is best known for her bold, sophisticated and cutting-edge designs. Koshino’s work varies – she designs functional garments featuring geometric, sometimes asymmetrical shapes, with a lot of black but also bright and contrasting hues. She also makes boldly avant garde designs which are much more like wearable art. She emphasizes a focus on the femininity of a woman, but is always experimenting on new ideas. She is also guided by the Japanese concept of “Taikyoku” – contrast in balance or harmony.

Her work varies, sometimes it is boldly avant, sometimes it dances the edge between avant garde and more wearable couture. She loves to experiment with different materials, such as metal and rubber, and work to express the qualities they have, and how that informs the design.”

Colour of Couture holds a special place in my heart as one of my most favorite competitions to participate in and it helped me prepare to be a Miss, so to be asked to judge for it was a special treat. I of course want to style my own take on the theme and that is what I did above. I found it refreshing to style what I would and not stressed about being judged. Judging is so much better than being judged!

Fernando

DD Fernando_001

Hello Readers!

Dead Dollz has released its Spring 2015 Collection and it is a stunner! In the photo above I am wearing the dress called “Fernando.” The pose is a part of KaTink’s “Houston St Editorial” set and a Pose Fair 2015 exclusive.

DD + MD 041915

As always, no outfit is complete without some Madrid Solo, so I chose to wear the Seductress eyes in Aqua and the Bubble Gloss lips in Rosy Nude.

Happy Styling,

Antique

Hello Readers!

Kiddo Oh has a sexy new outfit out called Octavia. She created it for The Fantasy Collective that runs for 3 weeks beginning February 20th.

Octavia does not come with a bit to cover your lady lumps, and I wonder if Kiddo did that intentionally to see how her fans would cover or not cover them up. I know I have enjoyed seeing various takes on styling this fab gown on Flickr!

Dead Dollz antique_r

I love the back of this dress as well. I have to admit one of the things that got me to fall for Dead Dollz were the amazing ruffles and detail. Octavia does not disappoint!

Dead Dollz antique_t

I wore my Physique with Octavia in antique (it also comes in black and brown) and a lace top applier by Crazy Kitty. My poses were by KaTink of course, and were from the Haute collection. I also had some amazing new Glamistry on underneath that color matched perfectly of course! These are the Astra Heels.

Seven Years

Hello Readers!

Today, November 26, 2014, marks seven years for me in Second Life…and that is just on this avi! In reality I have been in SL just a lil over seven years if we go by my original avi, but Silly Avro wasn’t born much after her so it is all good! I have a feeling this post will be a long one…so consider yourself warned!

I dug back in my inventory and my earliest image of myself was 2009.  That is easily explained. Silly was not my primary avatar for many years.  I came to SL as an educator and used Silly to explore the grid anonymously as my original avatar was very clearly connected to the RL me.  She started out “the girl next door” for anyone who remembers that avatar from back in the day. She was a few things after that, but finally became the model I wanted to be back in May 2013.  I have made friends in SL before modeling, and was lucky to find Collin, Lark, Liat, and Geths…people who are still close to me today.  Through SL modeling however the amount of wonderful, creative, sincere, and amazing people I have gotten to meet and call friend has been exponential.

I think it is quite appropriate that Silly’s Rez Day is so close to Thanksgiving because I am certainly thankful for all those who have believed in me and supported me along the way. This blog post is dedicated to all of my friends and the designers who have believed in me, encouraged me, welcomed me into their ‘fashion armies’ ((Kiddo)) and blogger families, and have been patient with me when my blogging gets slow due to RL or Miss Virtual World.

First, I am thankful to my SL mom Discovering Destiny (aka Lark) for being one of my oldest friends on the grid. She has known me across all my avatars, in role play and out. She is am amazing woman and has an amazing store.  With as busy as I have been with Miss Virtual World, my blogging has slowed temporarily but I wanted to be sure to take a moment to highlight the most recent work of the friends I blog for.

*All the photos used are the creations and property of the designers.

Lark makes so many colors of her lovely outfits I recommend buying a few and mixing it up.  I did with chocolate and cream and really enjoyed the result. I hope to be able to photograph it soon!

Legal Insanity was the sponsor of my graduation from AVENUE Models Academy back in July 2013 and the first to take me on as a blogger. I love the many looks of this brand. Working with Trip and Manon has been a treat.

DD Margery

Kiddo is one of my very favorite dress makers. I remember when she honored me with an invite to her blogger group. It was a year ago at the 2Lei event. 2Lei 2014 is going on now through the 30th.

The above dress is called Margaery and is available at We ❤ RP.

DD Pola

The above dress is Pola made special for The Attic, going on now.

I love how each designer I blog for has a special place in my memory and experience. Artizana is no different. I had the pleasure of meeting Dainie Fraina as a part of Colour of Couture.  I was thrilled to be named the winner of a challenge we had in honor of her brand and have enjoyed the friendship that has developed since.  She has asked me a few times to be on vendors for her and I am always flattered and thrilled by that. Shoots with her are always so much fun!  Below is the most recent time she asked me to be on a vendor, and she asked for male Silly as well!  I love being able to offer that to designers and blog both male and female fashions.

Dainie has a sparkly new store up too!  You should pay her a visit, you won’t be disappointed!

Artizana New Store

Here is her latest:

vikasati

KaTink has been a long time favorite of mine, and I am sure they are for many bloggers. I was thrilled when Marit asked me to join her blogger team and am always looking forward to the next blogger kit…chock full of cool new backgrounds, poses, or props!

KaTink At Last

KaTink Winter Set

MOLiCHiNO…what a brand. Another I enjoy of course! I was thrilled when my good friend Linda Reddevil invited me to join the blogger team!

Molichino

Now I don’t know if I am supposed to give away who is designing for me for the final phases of Miss Virtual World, but I am about to! I met Lyrical Bizarre as a part of the 2013 2Lei event as well. I was honored to model a one of a kind gown for her, sold at auction. It was a new experience for me, and introduced me to a wonderful new friend.

LB Callico

Another friend whose support in Miss Virtual World has been amazing is the uber talented Wicca Merlin!  She has been a model I have enjoyed watching and learning from. I was thrilled to be asked to blog for her and she often gives Geths and I a reason to “fashion” together which I enjoy very much. I cannot thank Lyrical and Wicca enough for their support and efforts on my behalf through the closing phases of Miss Virtual World 2015.

Wicca's Wardrobe

LUSH by CoCo is a designer I enjoy for their bold and sexy designs and I have enjoyed being a part of their blogger team very much.

LBC

ND Wingback Jumpsuit available at Sneek Peek for L$200.

Sundaara

Sexy Sundaara! I love that she is doing items for mesh bodies!  The above is for the Physique and I LOVE IT. Can’t wait to put that on and shoot something smexy! Zaara and I know each other from our work as management for SCALA. I love her take on things and she has been a wonderful sounding board for all things MVW.

LUNA

Lua Vendetta has recently opened LUNA Body Art and I love her nails!  “Nature” is her recent release, stop by her place and pick it up!

Madrid

Last but not least, we have the very talented Madrid Solo. I have been enchanted by her work since I was told about her as a new model. I swear I must own everything she has in her store (or very nearly all of it) and when Spirit put on Facebook that Madrid was looking for bloggers I had to apply. I was thrilled to make the cut!  Above is one of her latest designs, “Grace.”

Thank you for making it all the way through my rather long post. I just had to reflect on my Rez Day and show my appreciation to all the designers and friends who have supported and encouraged me along the way!

On a Silly closing note I have to say that this post has felt a bit like “Silly’s Favorite Things”…you know kinda like Oprah does… *chuckles*
