Legal Insanity @ AVENUE Fashion Week

Hello Readers!

As I begin the slow process of sorting my inventory and styling things to show you, Legal Insanity delivered a sneak peek at some of the items that will grace the AVENUE Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2013 runway on Friday, October 4th @ 4pm slt for the Legal Insanity show!  I of course had to stop what I was doing and see what Datrip had made, so here is a look I put together with the latest from Legal Insanity.

As always I love the designs of Legal Insanity. Be sure to take in the Legal Insanity show on Friday, October 4th @ 4pm slt.  If you have not already RSVPed you can click here.  Or you can watch it via Aview.  Oh and don’t forget to shop the retail gallery before or after the show!  Do be sure to pick up the AVENUE Fashioncentric HUD available right outside the runway venue, it serves as an amazing look book of the runway styles and teleports you right to where they are sold in the gallery!  Cool stuff!

I have recently switched over to a Slurls page to make crediting everything a bit easier for me, so do be sure to check that page for your shopping needs. As always thank you for reading and looking at my unedited photos! [This Christmas I am asking Santa for a new computer and PhotoShop (complete with lessons)! *chuckles* ]

Recent Releases from On A Lark

I have a couple of sexy romantic outfits from On A Lark to share with you today. The first is called “Blayze” and as always it has a variety of ways it could be worn.  I opted for the least clothing possible… *grins*  I have also included Lark’s vendor image as well so you can see the outfit in its entirety.

Syndication!

Today I finally achieved what I have been calling the “magical three.”  Since beginning my fashion blogging journey, I have been honored to have Marshmallows, {MUA}, Legal Insanity, On A Lark, and Charltina’s accept me into their blogging families without requiring syndication.  I am grateful to each one of them for sharing their designs with me and helping me grow as a blogger.  I have enjoyed styling their items tremendously and will continue to do so.

I have found that most designers require that a blog is syndicated on at least 3 feeds to even be considered.  I completely understand why that is a requirement for many designers.  If they are going to be giving you items to promote, you have to have an audience, if there is no audience, why give items away for free?

Once I began to learn the ins and outs of fashion blogging I made it a goal to achieve the “magical three” and hoped my blog was good enough to be accepted into well known SL fashion feeds.  I wanted to do right by the designers who believed in me, and get their wonderful designs as much exposure as I possibly could. I have to say this process would have taken much longer had it not been for SL Blogger Support.  Being a part of that blogging community has been invaluable and helped shorten my learning curve significantly.  Thanks to SLBS I achieved my “magical three” in what I felt was record time, and because of that I feel I have earned my SL fashion blogger merit badge.  Who are my “magical three?” The Grid Syndicate, Feed.Me!, and the SL Daily Wire.  Thank you for deeming my blog worthy to appear in your feeds, it means a great deal to me.

With school starting again in my RL, my time for blogging has been greatly reduced, leaving me twitchy at times as I crave to style and share all the goodness the designers have bestowed upon me.  So without further ado, here is my latest styling featuring the work of my wonderful SL mom, Discovering Destiny from On A Lark along with some striking eyeliner from {MUA}.

 I have continued to enjoy my Slink hands and feet very much (thank again for the unintentional nudge Shanty!).  I used the Deesses Skins Slink Avatar Enhancement Natural Nails set for my fingernails and toenails.  I love having perfectly matched hands and feet and a variety of nails choices available to me at a click of a button.

I found Lark’s outfit to be not only sexy but powerful, and as with many of her designs it has a rather earthy feel to me.  I opted to couple her design with a rather striking hat from Chic Zafari.  It suited my mood on many levels…the thrill of being syndicated and the desire to blog only to have RL slow me down…this hat symbolized to me the boldness and freedom of expression I enjoy.

The hair is from Eaters Coma and I have to thank Strawberry Singh and Farrah Helendale for the tip.  I discovered Eaters Coma at Hair Fair and had not gone to the main store to pick up more…talk about an oversight!

Amarelo Manga

Amarelo Manga is having an open casting for print models and being as I am fresh onto the modeling scene I had to enter!  I loved their line of swimwear and found it appealed to the island girl in me.  (I am Puerto Rican, though born and raised on the mainland United States.)  Enjoy tropical flavors, which is what guided my selection of items from Amarelo Manga.  Wish me luck in the competition! 😉
