Style Kingdom Magazine Casting: Styling Challenge #3

Hello Readers!

I have to say I LOVED the third styling challenge issued by Style Kingdom.  The theme was Gareth Pugh winter inspired.  We were given this video to watch: Gareth Pugh Autumn Winter 2013 Runway Collection. I was completely entranced. I lost track of how many times I watched the video, taking in every bit of it, and then madly searching SL for anything remotely similar.  To all the designers out there, I would LOVE a jacket in the style of any of the ones in the video.  I looked all over SL for one like those that dominated the runway in that show, and sadly none could be found. However, I did find a lovely jacket that helped me pull off a Gareth Pugh inspired winter look.

pugh2_002 dress > Paper Couture – Victoria in black

pugh_003jacket > [sYs] MORPHEO – jacket F (black)

gloves > .Shi : Fingerless Gloves [Female] *RARE* @ The September Arcade

pugh_002hair > (red)Mint Hair No.14’13 ~ Black

eyeshadow > Zibska – EmilyTries ~ Black

lipstick > [mock] Mizu Chrome Lip Gloss (1) (Lip only)

On the whole I did well on the challenge. (You can see the results here.) The judges were very complimentary in their comments.  SL however seemed to think a “noob” turn would compliment the look, and the judges disagreed, costing me some valuable points.  I am disappointed that an SL glitch would cost me points, but what’s done is done. I am still in good standing with the judges and I look forward to the final challenge!

As always, thank you for reading!

Style Kingdom Magazine Casting: Styling Challenge #2

Hello Readers!

I just wanted to share with you what I did for my 2nd styling challenge for Style Kingdom Magazine.  I am working on the 3rd challenge now, but I won’t share what it is or show any photos until the casting for it is done.  Challenge #2 was film noir.  What stuck out to me about the description of the challenge was “low-key black and white.”  So I avoided doing anything too glamorous and went for simple elegance instead.

hat > !*Bliss Couture*! Stephanie Hat – Noir

hair > (Chemistry) Hair – Vines – Reds – Crimson

eyeliner > {MUA} – Eyeliner – monochrom – black

lipstick > [mock] L’eau Lip Gloss [Russian Red] [Nalia]

earring > [ glow ] studio – Pearl Studs

necklace > Paper Couture – Bijou Pearls – White

ring >  Paper Couture – The Envy Ring – Silver

hands > Slink

nail polish > Action Slink Nails Essentials HUD V2 by Action

dress > SUGAR Vintage Vixen Pinup Dress

purse > Mentine TYCOON Soft Leather Pochette – Black

stockings > *LOW* Seamed lace stockings (black)

shoes > N-core COQUETTE “Black”

film noir_005

I enjoyed my look very much and thought I was pretty clever in bringing in a splash of red with my hair, lips and nails.  I also LOVE these seemed stockings I have and thought they really made the outfit.  Unfortunately for me, the judges did not enjoy my styling this time as much as they enjoyed my first.  You can see the results here.  However, I am still in good standing going into the 3rd challenge and I hope to make the top ten…and then onto the final challenge!  Wish me luck!

Kastle Rock Couture

Hello again readers!

Today I would like to share with you the styling I put together as an entry into the Kastle Rock Model Casting. I am sure I must have mentioned at some point that I love the funky?  No?  Well I do.  I love funky…the GOOD kind. *grins*  So when I was shopping Kastle Rock I came across this jumpsuit and I HAD to have it.  So here I am in the fabulously fierce and funky jumpsuit, on the new role play sim of Wendigo Lake that I learned about from a blog I enjoy reading called Cait’s World.  I know I have mentioned that role play is a passion of mine.  On this shoot I reconnected with Jon Vetrinari (effluvium) and became involved with his role play beta, along with my sister Liat, who I met in role play years ago.  Needless to say it was a lovely shoot…my sis taking the photos, talking to Jon about what he had in mind for Wendigo Lake, then signing up for his beta.  Liat and I (on one of my role play alts) role play there regularly.  Though, Liat is there much more than I am at the moment as I catch up on my blogging and write my articles for AVENUE.

So that was a HUGE tangent!  Back to Kastle Rock!  Here is my contest entry with the details of it immediately following.

jewelry > Maxi Gossamer – Aphrodite’s Dream

lipstick > [mock]Hypershine Lipcolor [lip 2]Old Rose

jumpsuit > Kastle Rock – Chica Jumpsuit

shoes > _CandyDoll_ Oxygen Magneta (Slink required)

Liat snapped many wonderful photos and I had to share them with you as well. As I had previously written, Maxi Gossamer is a personal favorite of mine, so it is no surprise I would use more of her jewelry in this styling.  I love the way her jewelry photographs.  The quality and versatility of her designs keeps me coming back for more!

The poses used in these photos are Slouch.  I just love Eira’s work!  The poses were from her most resent sets that she created for The 24. (Sets 25, 26, and 27.)

In the shot below you can see a bit of the nail polish I am wearing.  It is {MUA}’s Pois Colors Slink Nail applier.  I really enjoy the vibrant colors of Shanty’s work, and the detail on this polish goes beautifully with the Kastle Rock Chica Jumpsuit.

A special thanks to my sis Liat, for all her support on my fashion adventures as well as for her photography skills!  The Kastle Rock contest is officially closed now and I await the result with fingers crossed!

Thank you for reading!

New from Marshmallows

Hello Reader!

RL can be a pesky thing sometimes.  I swear it is like my RL knows I really want to blog, then says “NO!” *chuckles* I am here now though, so let me share with you the latest from Romy Dash.  I cannot say enough how much I love the brilliant bold creations of Marshmallows.  They speak to my own personal fashion statement…something I call ‘Barrio Chic.’ For the non-Spanish speaking readers, barrio is Spanish for neighborhood, but it is a bit more than that really.  The barrio is home and family with a decidedly Latin flair.   For me the barrio conjures images of loud music and dancing, delicious aromas, and bold, sexy style.  Romy’s designs are certainly barrio chic to me, and her latest release is no exception.

New from Legal Insanity

Legal Insanity - teaser campaign #4

In case you hadn’t heard, the Legal Insanity mystery has been solved.  Datrip Blackbart has created a new label for Legal Insanity called “Bitch & Chic.” Everything in this section of the store will only be L$110.  It isn’t open yet, but once it is it will have items for the ladies (everything will come with Lola appliers) and soon there after it will have items for the gents.  I have seen a catalog, but I have been sworn to secrecy!

And now I have a bit of newness for you from Legal Insanity.  Datrip’s designs always have a bit of a rebel feel to them for me, so I ran with that as I styled the following look. (Click photos to enlarge)
