Berry’s SL Yearbook Smile Challenge

Hello Readers!

My winter break is just about up, and I am not too excited about that. Then along comes Berry with a fun new challenge! I have really been enjoying the images in the Flickr group and was inspired to do my own, especially when Berry mentioned PicMonkey…O – M – G!  That site has given me what I have been looking for for a long time and I know I have heard about it before but never bothered to go look…a TOTAL fail on my part!  Here is my addition to all the fun SL Yearbook photos:

Colour of Couture: 1st Challenge

Hello Readers!

We have had our first photo challenge as candidates for Colour of Couture.  We were challenged to create a look inspired by Maison Martin Margiela’s Paris Haute Couture Spring 2014 collection.
I have to say I really do enjoy the fashion education I get through all the styling challenges I have been tasked with. This one was no different.  I studied the photos, discussed ideas with Nariko and Liat (aka my fashion team), did a little research on Margiela, and went with what jumped out at me.  Here is what I came up with.

SILLY AVRO - COC - FULLBODY| STYLE CARD |
tattoo top > .Identity.  – Courage To Change  [Fresh] Undershirt
bangles > LaGyo_Mirte bangles Black
coat > .Shi : Confi – Long Coat
shorts > ::Marshmallows:: Miss.Sweet Shorts-Twead
tattoo bottom > .Identity. Your Venom [Fresh] Underpants / Left & Right
shoes > erratic / selene – ankle boots
skin > Deesses Skins: Alicia – black eyebrows – ice frappe
pose > Slouch
location > R3volt Main Sim

SILLY AVRO - COC - HEADSHOT| STYLE CARD |
mask > LaGyo_Mirte mask Black
eyes > IKON ‘Sunrise’ Eyes – Celtic Green
make-up > Madrid Solo- Eyes & Lips- Shena- Full Set-Dark Night
earrings > LaGyo_Mirte earrings Black
hair > booN IIK551 hair black

We were asked to explain our thought process on our version of Margiela and this was mine:Inspired by the “inventive, creative and quirky” Maison Martin Margiela Paris Haute Couture Spring Collection 2014. Margiela’s collection was quite a treat for the eye in all of its contradictions. I spent quite a while looking at the photographs of this collection, as well as the live runway video of it, and did my best to absorb the bold quirkiness of it all.  I was immediately attracted by the tattoo top and knew it had to be in my recreation.  The over sized jacket was quite the curiosity as well so a quirky coat by .SHI appeared in my rendition.  The masks on the models were intriguing, and while we were not to obscure our faces, I had to bring in a bit of the mask effect with the piece from LaGyo.  On the whole I found the collection daring and I attempted to bring that factor into my look with wearing the tattoos from Identity.  There were also several short dresses in the collection, and I chose to represent that with these sexy lil tweed shorts from Marshmallows.  On the whole I enjoyed the challenge and the creative license it allowed me.

See the rest of the creative interpretations of the Margiela challenge by visiting the Colour of Couture Flickr pool.

Cocoa

Hello Readers,

A lovely new coat was delivered to me today by Romy Dash of Marshmallows and I had to slip it on.  Her deliveries always seem to come at just the right time.  Thank you Romy!

Feeling Purple

Hello Readers!

It has been much too long!  As I sort through the many wonderful items I have been getting as a blogger for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival (going on NOW) and The Style Icon Fashion Fair (Opening February 7th) I had a lil something arrive from the very first designer to take me on as a blogger…Romy Dash of Marshmallows.  Of course I had to open it right away and I loved what I found.

I had to put on my Plum make up again by {MUA} as it went so perfectly!

Style Icon Fair_BSD

I love shoes and I was thrilled to be sent this lovely pair by {{BSD Design Studio}} called “Meditrina” in black leather.  This sexy pair of heels will be available at The Style Icon Fashion Fair, organized and hosted by Legal Insanity.

“Legal Insanity welcomes you to ‘The Style Icon’ Fashion Fair. Show us your legendary style icon from the past to the present.

In 2014, we start off the year paying homage to those who have inspired us, whose style has influenced a generation, we all have one who is yours? We have challenged the designers to create a collection inspired by those who have made a mark in their lives or have shaped their fashion style. They are to make it their own of course, not to copy because no one likes a copycat. We want to see their interpretations.

Join us and express your personal style and celebrate those who have influenced the fashion world!”

STYLE ICON

There are always so many wonderful fashion events to attend in SL, but do be sure to pick up Romy’s wonderful dress, visit the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and save a few Lindens for The Style Icon Fashion Fair!
