Winter Insanity

Hello Readers!

In the midst of all my POE7 deliveries I had some awesome deliveries from Madrid Solo and Legal Insanity.  As soon as I pulled out these items from my Legal Insanity bags I had to put them on. They are perfect for the season and made me want to get off my sim and pose on a wintery location!  The top and bottoms come with a hud to change textures and I was easily mixing and matching for 10-15 minutes enjoying all the combinations.  Then there was the “U-Color-It” Grace makeup from Madrid Solo that makes things soooo easy. This isn’t the first time Madrid has made this an option and I LOVE it each time she does!

Colour of Couture: DSquared2 Challenge

Hello Readers!

There was another Colour of Couture Runway Challenge today and this time our challenge was to style inspired by the Spring/Summer 2014 Collection of twin brother designers Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared2.  We were asked to write a couple of paragraphs about our inspiration for the styling, so here is the look I came up with, my thoughts on it, and the credits.

lipstick > Madrid Solo- Mix & Match- Dot B Lips-Red
necklace > Pure Poison – Cleo Necklace – Azure

shorts > Ingenue :: Hetty :: S :: Aubergine
purse > Bag Cassandra Blue-Silver NO Ani by Dave Freeman of Just Design
shoes > Ingenue :: Claire Heels (Slink Mesh Feet Add-On) :: Pool
pose > Manifeste

My Inspiration:
After doing my research on DSquared2, I found that their Spring/Summer 2014 collection was geared toward the pool side and inspired by the 1950s with bold, shapely dresses, and svelte swimsuits. Sexy “Bond Girl”-esque hair and large glamorous hats were a must as well, not to mention vibrant colors and prints, as well as animal prints, neutrals, and pastels.  I found that the DSquared2 SS 2014 collection really has much to offer the discerning fashionista.

As for me personally, I found there was a lot of fun to be had in exploring the trends housed in this collection.  I immediately gravitated toward the fifties inspiration and wanted to capture it in the high waisted shorts and modest heel.  I enjoyed the playfulness of pattern and color and went with some of the pastels which are a trend for the Spring/Summer 2014 season.  When it came to the hat, I wanted one in a similar shape as the collection, but one with it’s own flair to add to the fun of the entire look.

I always enjoy seeing what the other candidates bring to the table with their interpretations and I was not let down.  I think as a group we did a fine job of representing all the elements of the DSquared2 Spring/Summer 2014 Collection.  Well done ladies!

This was a last competition challenge before the finale and I can’t believe the journey is nearly done.  I will be sharing one additional surprise Colour of Couture photo challenge with you all as soon as I have clearance to do so, so mums the word! In the mean time however, I wanted to express just how much I have enjoyed this whole competition.  No matter the outcome we are all winners and I know I don’t just speak for myself when I say the entire experience has been an enjoyable one.

Thank you for reading!

Opium’s Gatsby

Hello Readers!

One of the events that has kept me rather busy of late is Opium Evolution’s Gatsby. I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing production.  I greatly enjoyed Opium’s Halloween production and I knew I just had to be a part of this agency.  Ana invited me to join Opium soon there after and I couldn’t be happier! Her shows really are like nothing else, and I affectionately call them Fashion Theater.  I do rather miss SL theater as I used to be involved with The Jewell Theater in SL, and I know that desire to perform on stage fuels my desire to be on the runway…but as usual I digress.  Opium’s latest production is “Gatsby” and it includes 18 amazing designers and Gatsby-inspired exclusives.

Opium's Gatsby

The first part of the show is a Donna Flora tribute and I am honored to be a part.  I was too new to the SL modeling scene when Squinternet passed, but I know she touched so many deeply and is sorely missed.  I am very glad to be a part of the tribute to such a well loved and missed designer.

My second outfit is a dress by Prism.  I love the loose feel of it and the way it gives the feeling of silky fabric flowing over my body.  I adore the high/low hemline and the back…RAWR!  I just had to accent it with a backlace by Maxi Gossamer.

So I was a bit jealous to see that Dead Dollz was a featured designer and I didn’t get the lovely work of Kiddo to style with for the show.  That feeling didn’t last long however as all the designs are available in the boardwalk across from the Gatsby mansion where the show takes place.  Before I could go shopping however, Kiddo delivered the exclusives to her blogger group and I was so excited!
