#48 – Dior and Lacroix

I’ve been given assignments to style after both and I feel in love. More with Dior than Lacroix, but I think it’s because Dior appears to be more feasible to do in SL than Lacroix. However, I’m always up for a challenge. The clothing that I wear mostly come from Miamai which is an amazing brand that dedicates it’s time to the extra-ordinary and avant garde fanatics.

I am definitely a fanatic.

Please enjoy!

#47 – earth tones

I decided to dress in more earth tones today. The creation of this outfit started to be a tedious process, but as always things started to fall into place like a magnificent puzzle.  I abandoned color charts and instead went with -textures- Each item was chosen for its texture – twill, leather, crock, cotton and lace. The combination turned out to be something that I am absolutely in love with wearing, and will likely wear for an entire 24 hours until I get another itch to style something else. Each brands presented are absolutely fantastic. I don’t need to say more. Enjoy!

The boots are amazing. AMAZING! And there were 10 girls in Maitreya when I went to go buy them. So I snatched a red pair too, and my mind is brewing on a way to use them. Who doesn’t need red boots?

#46 – Warmth

Hello!

I present today a mix of Ison, Boom, and Celoe. All items are ones that I rushed out to buy and yes, I have to put money on my credit card. This holiday season is proving to completely blow my SL budget! But, now that there’s a firestorm viewer that allows my vid card to see mesh without crashing, I’m going a bit crazy over it.

Please enjoy!

#45 – ANNA IS MVW !!!

Hello! FIRST AND FORMOST!!!!!

I’d like to CONGRATULATE Anna Sapphire for being crowned MVW 2012! I am so very proud of her and all her accomplishments! I couldn’t have picked a better model teacher,indefinite mentor, inspiration, and big sis. Yay!!!!!

YOU DID IT! There is no person who is more beautiful inside and out, than she. :)

I believe this is one of Maitreya’s new mesh dresses. I happened on it accidentally and I am so in love with it. I’m also very in love with mesh and the new firestorm. This dress is textured to perfection and it just -feels- real on the Avie. I felt like a couture super model all day. The hair is from Truth – which is always a tried and true brand. This particular hair speaks to me, because it fits all avatar face shapes pretty well. I have to be careful with myself, because of how my shape is designed. So when I put this hair on, and “wow!” I bought it!

I’ve also finished my online portfolio which can be found here: http://absinthe.moonfruit.com/. Now to make my blog look more fashion marketable.

Enjoy!

#43 – Oscar de la renta

One evening my best friend Kera was showing me pictures of her favorite Oscar de la renta gowns, and so I decided that I’d surprise her by remaking one for her. I really really like recreating my own dresses. I feel it’s the best way to be original. Anybody can buy a dress, buy some gems, and then say they’ve “styled” something. But when I recreate my own clothes from mix n’ match bits and pieces, I feel really really original.

Also, I think I have an uncanny knack for it. :P

Nothing I am wearing is remotely “new” however I love all items the same. Thank you HoF for making such a wonderful skirt. I loooooove it and I love how it can carry so many colors for so many purposes. Thank you :)

#41 – kiss with a fist

I love R.icielli clothing. When I first started modeling I discovered their store by accident and I’ve been going back ever since as a key place to mix and match items. They seem to have everything you need and in every color. When I rant and rave about a store, it’s because I really really love it, and I have probably spent my own, hard earned money there.

I think I’ve given them at least 400 dollars by now. It’s a shame. But, I was putzings around and decided I wanted to look grungy. I wasn’t really aiming to go to R.icielli, but it started with the t-shirt, and the pants I already had. Then the belt and the shoes and an entire outfit? Yikes! And I swore to myself I wasn’t shopping anymore this week except for model school related homeworks. :\

#40 – another chapter opens

 

I love fashion first and foremost. I love colors and textures and creation. I love watching fashion shows, reading magazines, and getting dressed every morning for work. I love making something new from something old. Making people smile and go “wow.”  I love my brain.  My giant, creative, silly brain that enables me to see potential in the simplest of outfits.”These things can never be taken from me.  I started wanting to be a model in SL and to walk in a straight line down a runway.  Look what I’ve done in 4 months. A new chapter will begin.

Hat: Lagyo – Propellers headpiece

Hair: tram – A817 hair / brown

Dress: Epoque – Latex Fin Dress – nude

Shoes: Epoque – Mesa Platforms – nude
