FashionArt Fashion Show Review

Hello Readers!

I had the pleasure of being a part of the FashionArt Finale Show today…not that FashionArt is over though!  It goes until the end of the month.  Today’s fashion show was the second of two put on to showcase the designers. I was honored to share the runway with so many talented and well known SL models, it was a real treat.  I teased my looks in a previous post, so I thought now I would break them down for you.

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.

DSquared2_cropped|CREDITS|
hat > *LODE* Headwear – Aurora [violet]
hair > [LeLutka]-CANTO hair – Pitch (o)(o)
eyeliner > Eyeliner -2- *REDGRAVE*
lipstick > Madrid Solo- Mix & Match- Dot B Lips-Red
necklace > Pure Poison – Cleo Necklace – Azure
bangels > Izzie’s – Bangles silver purple
coat & top > ** DIRAM ** NYSSA Jacket&Corset – Green
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!

Colour of Couture…the Journey Continues!

Hello Readers!

RL & SL have certainly kept me busy of late!  I am back though and wanted to share another reason my blog posts haven’t been coming as frequently…it is a very good reason actually.  I am enjoying being a contestant in Colour of Couture.  Styling challenges are something I have enjoyed since my very first modeling classes.  Today I am sharing with you two of my most recent Color of Couture stylings.

The first was for Earth Hour an event hosted by Amazing Impressions Modeling agency that spotlighted the need for all of us all to be united in protecting our planet.

Earth Hour - Silly Avro - cropped

I was fortunate to be selected as one of 60 models to have an Earth Hour inspired look taken by the talented Marcopol Oh.  I am wearing “Earth” by Boudoir and “Oceane” by {MUA}. (above)

CoC Cosmo

Colour of Couture gave us the challenge of styling in the theme of cosmo couture, highlighting green and blues, and considering Earth Hour.  It was a very tricky challenge, and after doing my research on cosmo couture I arrived at the genre had to do with designing looks with unconventional materials…and quite often building and interior design materials.  So once I understood that, I began putting together my look.  I fell in love with these bits of crashed satellite I acquired from The Grim Bros., I visited one of my favorites (Chrysalis) for the one legged jumpsuit, added some hosiery from Erratic, fun hair from Ploom, sexy make up from Nuuna (neck) and {MUA} (full face).  My arm bands are recent releases from my SL Mom’s store On A Lark, my necklace a former Collabor88 item from Yummy, and the colorful bracelets were a Fifty Linden Friday find from Erratic. Oh and I can’t forget the awesome claw boots from Wicca’s Wardrobe.  I was just looking for a reason to wear them and this seemed it!

Silly Baroque

Our most recent challenge was to style inspired by Thom Browne. I had a good deal of fun with this one.  I have never been asked to style baroque before (or cosmo couture for that matter) so it was an exciting thing to dig into.  After doing my research, I found that Thom Browne uses a variety of materials in his designs, one of the most notable rubber/latex.  I used a Graves latex catsuit as a base and built from there.  I knew once again Collabor88 would be my best friend, providing just the right pair of heeled Oxfords.  I added a cute pair of slink enabled socks, and for a pop of color a sexy red skirt from The Plastik.  When it came to the baroque part I looked around a bit, one of my frequent stops being Bare Rose.  The white skirt, corset, and top came from there, I added a fun HUD driven cameo and set the image to “death”, added some hair I found at The Big Show by Little Bones (who are new to me…I love when that happens).  My make up is a combination of {MUA}, The Plastik, and Buzz Essentials. I added a fun lil Dia De Los Muertes black rose…complete with skull, thorns, spiders, and webs as a personal reference to the Latina in me, and added cobwebs to my hair.  I couldn’t resist Remarkable Oblivion’s cat purse to bring a bit more crazy to my Thom Browne inspired baroque.

A special thank you to my dear friend Gethsemane Idler for taking and processing this photo of me.  If you are interested in a great up and coming photographer he is the one!  Feel free to send him an IM or a note card if you are looking for someone to take your photo.  Tell him Silly sent you. *winks*

So there you have it.  A bit of why I have been so quiet on my blog, but I don’t intend for that to always be the case. I enjoy blogging and will continue to share the latest and greatest from the designers who have taken me on as well as things I find around the grid I think you might enjoy.

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!

It’s been a while…

Hello Readers!

It sure has been a while.  I don’t like for my blog to get quiet for more than a couple of days but I had two major events this weekend inworld and a busy week of RL work and SL rehearsals.  The weekend was a blast and I will be writing more about what kept me so busy in the coming two posts.  Today however I wanted to share some new make ups from {MUA} and announce my retirement as a {MUA} blogger.  I really do enjoy Shanty’s products, but with as busy as my RL and SL are getting it isn’t right of me to stay on as a blogger for her if I cannot blog in the way she would like.  I did not sign on as a blogger for freebies and I never want to be viewed that way.  I signed on as a blogger because I believe in the designers I work for and the quality of their work.  That being said, I will continue to buy {MUA} products in the future and I wish Shanty all the best.

Golden Ocean

Hello Readers,

Today I have a bit of The Couturier’s Docks courtesy of Syra Hyun of Baoba. Her hats have been a long time favorite of mine and I love how striking they are.

The arrival “Golden Ocean” kicked off a whole sea image in my mind and made me willing to test my PhotoShop skills and patience as I worked on the above photo.  I am sure I could have added more to it to give it that “underwater” feel…but all in good time.
