We Rise

Hello Readers!

Southern California doesn’t get all that cold, but when it does it is lovely. Today as I blog this it is blustery, gray and cold…perfect bundling up kind of weather. It made me want to blog this wintery look I styled the other day.

So Many Things

Hello Readers!

It has been some days again…and RL will do that to you as I am sure you all know so no excuses for me! I hate making excuses anyway, even if they are true.

The Dark

hairbase > ILLMATIC :: Smoothed Baby Hairs – Noir
hair > Helenia by Calico
dress > Cosette Black Gown by Dead Dollz
necklace > lassitude & ennui Stacked pearls necklace white

make up > London Liner by Madrid Solo (eyeliner and lips in black)
pose > Manifeste

I have been a fan of Kiddo Oh of Dead Dollz for a long time and it is a special treat to be a part of her “Fashion Army.” I recently learned she has been the victim of infringement (you can read about it on her blog). She has created a new variation of her Cosette gown to thwart the one infringing on her intellectual property and is selling it for L$1, so scoot on over to her shop and get one!

I was recently selected to be a blogger for Madrid Solo and I was thrilled! I have loved Madrid’s designs for a long time (as well as her work as a photographer) and it is so exciting to get to blog for her. In the image above I am wearing one of her newest releases “London Liner.” As always they come eyes or lips only so you can mix it up! I love that!

On a very different note, I am wearing one of two exclusive Slink nail polishes created by Lua Vendetta of LUNA Body Art for the Tiny Footprints event. This is the charity event of the reigning Miss Color of Couture Vera Venutzini and is meant to raise awareness and donations to the Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep organization.

The mission of  NILMDTS is to introduce remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with a free gift of professional portraiture. Since NILMDTS was founded, over 11,000 volunteers have been part of the network.  NILMDTS reaches every state in the United States and has been or is present in 40 countries worldwide.  NILMDTS trains, educates, and mobilizes professional quality photographers to provide beautiful heirloom portraits to families facing the untimely death of an infant.  We believe these images serve as an important step in the family’s healing process by honoring the child’s legacy.

Please be sure to pay this very worthy cause a visit, happy shopping,  and 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!

Walking with Shanina

Hello Readers!

I am happily cleaning my inventory and attempting to stay on top of designer’s latest releases.  Today I have some fun from Chandni Kondji of Hopscotch.  Up first I have a pose and prop set called “Fancy a walk?”

(click photos to enlarge)

hop 122713_012_far*~*HopScotch*~* Fancy a walk? – Pose and Umbrella

I had read recently that Mad City was done over for the holidays so I thought I would go there for this shoot. I was not disappointed, it was perfect.

Next I would like to share the latest group gift from Natalie Wells of Deesses Skins.  She gifted us all with Shanina in 8 tones. I chose the skin tone I normally wear in her skin line “ice frappe” and added one of her lipsticks called ” decadent.” I then outfitted myself in some LivGlam, and accessorized with Emotions and Yummy.
