Must Haves! Dragonfly Brooch by ICING

Posted by mannarosewood on February 2, 2008

icingdragonfly_001-copy.jpg

I just had to share. I love this gorgeous dragonfly brooch by Miko Omigamu of ICING. I saw it on a woman passing me by and I just to stop her and appreciate it. It’s absolutely an intricate charm and perfect for the coming spring season!

I own a piece or two if ICING clothing and adore the excellent quality but especially the consistent designs. Many floral patterns. One can never have enough floral patterns in their wardrobe. — This dragonfly brooch seems to be the only jewelry type item for sale in the shop and it conveniently comes with the Femme en Noir outfit. ICING store is currently having a 50% off Sale so the brooch with the dress is only 147L at the moment.

I love this. You will too!Buy it, rotate it, adore it! For someone who focuses on apparel this gem of a brooch is better than the quality of many jewelry-focused designers. Miko Omigamu, make more jewelry!

Redefining the Classics

Posted by Caliah Lyon on November 13, 2007

Grey may have been the choice staple this fall/winter, but for those who prefer richer colours and a more traditional autumnal palette the deep metallics – bronze, gold – as well as the usual red, sienna, and orange – are a sure way to add a touch of warmth. The silhouette is slim and spare in these five outfits, but the look is far from minimalist with fur, wool, brocade, muted prints, and crocodile.

Designers have achieved near-perfection with many of the sculptie knee-high boots recently, and the choices here are must-haves.

Noir
The Nicole Suit from Nicky Ree is perhaps one of the most versatile of dressy alternatives to a gown; with Nicky’s usual array of skirt and pant options and a few choice changes of accessories one can have a myriad of variations on the basic suit. Wear with a delicate cocktail hat from Morrigan Hyun, some fur trim and the long centre skirt for a touch of Old Hollywood, or a high-collared undershirt and Siyu Suen’s Sun Hat tinted dark grey (free at her store) for a costume with a hint of the Edwardian, sans corset.

Nicole Suit in Black,  Nicky Ree, L$800; Fur Collar in Grey from the Duchess Coat, Casa Del Shai, L$750; Fur Cuffs (tinted dark grey) from the Anneline Brown Jacket by  Ivalde, Calla Anniversary gift; Leather Gloves in Black, Tete a Pied, L$100; Valena Hat in Black, Elegance Hats, L$175; Alyssa Diamond Bitchstick, Foxy’s Smoke Shop, L$290, Claris Black Pearl Choker and Earrings, RFL Limited Edition, Muse; Ten-Colour Ankle-Strap Pump, Stiletto Moody, L$2750. Hair: Christina from ETD.

Autumn
The Virginie Breeches and Liah Boots in Chocolate both have a rich bronze gleam; matched with a leopard-patterned silk blouse, leather gloves and the Tilo leather posture collar/scarf, this may be orange overkill, but the combination of textures in the same palette made this outfit too fun to resist.

Secretary Blouse in Brown, Casa del Shai (pack), L$400; Gunmetal Breeches from the Virginie Riding Suit, Last Call, L$450; The Marquise Corset in Chocolate (undershirt layer), Casa del Shai, L$450;  Posture Collar from the Tilo outfit, Last Call, L$400; Short Leather Gloves in Tan, Tete a Pied, L$100; Tri-Colour Ethnic Wood Bangle, Earthtones, L$129; Classic Tank Watch in Natural/Gold, Muse, $200; Liah Boots in Chocolate, Last Call: Vamp, L$250; Hair: Gwen from ETD.

Crimson
High-quality open coats for women are still a rarity despite the recent windfall of coats, and as such the fact that this striking metallic red crocodile trench was made for men shouldn’t discourage one from wearing it. Tone down the effect with a a black sweater dress, a scarf rather than the fur collar, and play up the manga-esque element with some metallic leggings, dyed hair and a slick pair of boots.

Le Smoking Croc Trench Coat in Red, Casa del Shai, L$700; Rainy Day Dress in White (tinted dark grey), Armidi Gisaci, L$235; Metallic Leggings in Bronze, Armidi Limited, L$95; Electric Bugaloo Patterns Scarf, Gritty Kitty (Block Party Limited Edition); Fear and Loathing Watch, Wilted Rose, L$120; Kyoto Boots in Black/Black, L$375, and Fi Umo Sunglasses in Black Tortoise/Black Lens, L$225, Armidi Gisaci. Hair: Pasadena Girl III (full flex) from Armidi.

Gold
The same fitted dress from Armidi can be paired with this golden brocade blazer for a different and very versatile, sophisticated look; change the bronze leggings and sleek boots to hose and a pair of pumps, and you can go from dressy casual to all business in a matter of seconds. Add chunky gold jewelry and a vibrantly coloured crocodile bag.

Jennifer Brocade Belted Blazer, Last Call, L$200; Rainy Day Dress in Black, Armidi Gisaci, L$235; Metallic Leggings in Bronze, Armidi Limited, L$95; Sculptie Boots in Black, Redgrave, L$450; Freja Shoulder Bag in Pink, Bare Rose, L$140; Fi Umo Sunglasses in Black Tortoise/Gold Lens, L$225, Armidi Gisaci; Gold Necklace from Muse (as yet unreleased); Triste Rosette Earrings in Gold, Muse, L$300. Hair: Phoebe from ETD.

Bronze
Comfortable enough for drinks at the pub but dressy enough for an evening out, this look hinges on the richly textured sweater with a trompe l’oeil rose and string of pearls. Complete with prim cuffs and collar and a plain option, they’re available in a variety of colours and a steal at 10L.

Cuddly Sweater in Red with Rose, Simone at Fashion Avenue, L$10; Skirt from the Nouvelle Librarian in Corn and Brown, Casa del Shai, L$250; Red hose from the 13-colour hose pack, Blaze, L$100; Sculptie Boots in Smoke from Redgrave, L$450; Freja Square Handbag in Brown, Bare Rose, L$140; Freshwater Pearl Necklace, Muse CSI:NY free gift, and Claris Pearl Earrings in Gold, L$50. Hair: Phoebe from ETD.

Have a good week 🙂

The Witching Hour

Posted by Caliah Lyon on October 30, 2007

As All Hallows’ Eve draws nigh, and revenants and wraiths cross over from the paths of the dead to haunt the doorsteps of the living, one would be wise to follow their lead and adopt a spectral guise.

Whether if you waited till late, or found just one costume in which to make the rounds of the many celebrations that mark this season, there are more than a few more that are worth acquiring, even if Halloween were past.

(Click for larger versions)

The winged serpent that was said to constantly gnaw at the deepest root of Yggdrasil, Nidhogg means “tearer of corpses.”

Nidhogg, Bare Rose, $L150. Hair: Deviant Kitties Symon in White, $L175; Skin: Cake Jessica Pearl in Rain, $1250; Boots (not shown): Armidi Gisaci Kyoto Black on Black Boots, $L375.

Whether the costume of a courtesan or a Japanese ghost, the Thorn of Beauty is beautiful and elaborate enough to draw glances from your fellow fiends and night creatures.

Thorn of Beauty in Blue, Bare Rose, $L180. Hair: Yukiko in Midnight by Cherry Tokyo, L$150; Skin: Cake Jessica Pearl in Rain.

The Titania’s Court Faun avatars have long had their share of admirers – and what better time to try one on than Halloween?

Titania’s Court Female Faun Avatar in Snow by Riann Maltese, $L600. Hair: Kin Amaunet in White, $L100; Skin: Cake Jessica Pearl in Brat, $L1250; Clothes: Snow Mummy from Bare Rose, $L135. Accessories: Antlers from Lady of Deer, Bare Rose, L$145.

Angels needn’t be snowy-feathered and haloed with light, and at a masquerade your costume should speak for itself. You can’t go wrong with an ensemble by Bare Rose, Nicky Ree and a mask from Illusions.

Behind the Mask, Bare Rose, $L145 (mask, shirt, pants, mermaid skirt and shoulder feathers); Nicky Ree Swan Queen (upper prim sleeves and cuffs) in Black, L$980. Illusions Columbina Mask in Black/Silver, L$125 (modified with feathers from the Gracile hat) and Black Angel Wings (as yet unreleased); TaP Long Leather Gloves in Black, L$100; Armidi Gisaci Kyoto Black/Black Boots. Hair: Kin Lucy in White, L$100; Skin: Cake Jessica Pearl in Rain. Accessories: Staff (modified) from the Magma Succubus Avatar, Grendel’s Children.

Happy Halloween!

Second Night Life ll

Posted by Lucas Lameth on October 25, 2007

S E C O N D . N I G H T . L I F E . II

soignelucas_1-1.jpg

I just wasn’t done shooting at the “The L Word” Sims so here’s the sequel from Manna’s storyboard snapshots. Cheers! — The social scene is half the fun of fashion. First we start with a simple but oh-so sleek Gisaci Classic Cashmere Turtleneck in Charcoal (L$145) and Armidi Limited A001 Jeans in Regular Industrial (L$145). Dark denim is always key for a comfortable semi-formal look. Blue and light denim recommended for casual day wear and with light colors like pastel. Remember, Caliah Lyon’s Muse Classic Tank Watch (L$200 set of two) will fit MEN and WOMEN. I cannot stress this enough. These are the classiest watches in Second Life. Not owning them is a FASHION SIN! — Get these stylish 1-prim wine glass decorations (L$90 m/c/nt) at mike’s studio, Roosa (217, 103, 27).

soignelucas_1-4.jpg

Refreshed? Start the night life off with Armidi Limited new Paris Henley in Black (L$125). Ginny’s Last Call Moderno Ladro Pinstriped Pants (L$300 for Ladro Outfit) keep this look classy. — Ofcourse, Manna and myself always always choose Gold. Fellows often steer toward silver but times-a-changing and I say be brave fellas’, add a little gold. Even if it’s one of those fancy tooth implants. At Armidi, I was also able to snatch some Pyramid Cuffs in Black & Gold (L$135) and these snazzy Fi Umo Sunglasses (L$225).

soignelucas_1-2.jpg

Relaxing at the bar before hitting the dance floor. Smoking a FNKY! Cigarette (L$150). Easy slick hair, spike it up! with Rach Snookums Frangipani “Jake” Hair in Chocolate (L$200). My favorite male sex appeal skin of choice in SL is none other than FNKY! Antonio in Tan/Baby Face Soul Patch (L$1850).

soignelucas_1-3.jpg

Time to show these suckers how to spin the beat! Look bad-ass in Luth Brodie’s Reel Expression Mens poses (L$150 each).

soignelucas_1-5.jpg

You wake up with a hangover and a stranger in your bed. It happens. At least you look stylish in Armidi Intimizzio Boxer Briefs in Dark Gray (L$125) and out of bed hair The Grammar from Armidi in Mocha (L$295). Slip on your FNKY! Executive Glasses I (L$330) and turn them red to look smart and busy.

soignelucas_1-6.jpg

And now you nod and take down their number in your savvy 803 Slurry Street Pocket PC (L$350). Put them down as “The blonde one with wavy hair”. Smile, escort them out and get more sleep for tomorrow night.

My eyes of choice at the moment is Purple eyes from Fashionably Dead (around L$60).

Happy Fashion Affair Second Life!

The Return of Armidi

Posted by Caliah Lyon on October 7, 2007

As I promised in my personal blog, here are a few photographs of what has turned out to be a gorgeous shopping sim and the goodies inside. The Armidi team have put a lot of thought into the shopping experience as well as their products, and this attention to detail is evident in the displays and buildings, which are I think a good example of bringing real-life design concepts into SL (compare this to the Armani build). Some have drawn parallels between Naughty and this sim, but if you were to translate a real-life upscale shopping district with the same neutral tones and common architectural elements into an SL build, some similarities would be inevitable; for me, there are enough differences in the presentation that the similarities are overshadowed (the hair dye box concept, for example). The builds look nothing alike, even if they are similar in colour scheme.

Armidi1Armidi2Armidi3

It’s unfortunate that I had very little time with which to explore, as I nipped into SL on another pc simply to check on my account when Armidi opened the first time. However short my first visit, I did manage to pick my favourite from the small selection of styles, the trendy tied-back Soho. Armidi’s approach to hair consists of very realistic textured strands; I would compare it to real-life hair spritzed with seawater for that matte, textured look that was popular on the runways and fashion magazines a while back, only slightly more glossy.

Armidi Gisaci
Left: Gisaci Milano Halter Top in Bronze; Middle: Gisaci Classic Cashmere Turtleneck in Creme (men’s); Right: Gisaci Little Mary dress in Dark Gray. Featured here are the Soho hairstyle in Harvest Gold (left) and the Fi Umo Sunglasses in Black Tortoise/Gold Lenses.

A Darker Season

Posted by Caliah Lyon on September 27, 2007

The month of October, and Halloween, draws nigh, and with it its balls and costume parties and masquerades.

It’s fitting that these outfits here have a slightly darker, yet elegant edge to them, though I feel it’s too early yet to don a mask. Nicky Ree’s Swan Queen in Black is a dramatic ensemble appropriate for the season, and I couldn’t resist including it in my style diary post during my break. I rather like how the feathers in the skirt look like brush strokes from a painting in this particular photo.

Black and Blood
Left: Shirt and shoulder prims from the EGA Noble Black, Bare Rose; Black Stripes Austere Corset from Kyoot; Gloves, underpants and pants from the Rebecca Outfit, Last Call; Liah Boots in Onyx from Last Call Vamp; Chatelaine Shoulder Brooch in Silver (chains removed), Ariane Ring in Silver/Diamond and Dauphine Earrings in Silver/Jet (unreleased) from Muse. Hair: Paris in Harbor, Naughty.

Right: Swan Queen in Black by Nicky Ree; Hair: Hermia in Nickel Burnt (tinted) from ETD.

Shopping Information:
Bare Rose by June Dion, Bare Rose, (146, 11, 38)
Kyoot by Saeya Nyanda, Vakkert Gal (190, 224, 22)
Last Call/Last Call: Vamp by Ginny Talamasca & Lyra Muse, Dazzle (68, 11, 27)
Muse by Caliah Lyon, Linji (143, 151, 49)
Naughty (Influence Hair) by Lost Thereian, Naughty Island (82, 112, 23)
Nicky Ree by Nicky Ree, Deco (86, 97, 34)
ETD Hair by Elikapeka Tiramisu, ETD Isle (212, 216, 26)

I may be on a short break with smaller releases rather than large ones, as I’ve decided to move stores, and the preparation will likely last all month, even if it’s already underway. I’m hoping I won’t be too overworked for new releases and freebies. Stay tuned 🙂

Fall Coats; Seregel for Marc Cain F/W 07.08 Ad Campaign

Posted by Caliah Lyon on September 25, 2007

Fall Coats

Left: Kats Coat in Black, by Antonia Marat, Artilleri; Sweetheart Cloche in Black/Black, by Siyu Suen, Illusions; Torino Bag in Onyx, Paper Couture; Red Leather Gloves from the Natascha Coat in Grey by Shai Delacroix, Casa del Shai; Hose from the Women’s Power Suit in Charcoal, Blaze; Aileen Shoes in Black, by Lyra Muse, Last Call Vamp; Celine Pearl Necklace in Black Pearl/White Crystal/Gold, Celine Pearl Drop Earrings in Black Pearl/Gold, and Ariane Ring in Gold (diamond changed to black pearl) from Muse. Hair: Vivian in Tawny, ETD.

Middle: Natascha Trench Coat in Red and Grey Leather Gloves, Casa Del Shai; Scarf (Electric Bugaloo) from Gritty Kitty (Block Party Exclusive), tinted black; Nea-Ban Fabulous sculpted shades; Melisande boots in Onyx, Last Call Vamp; Celine Pearl Drop Earrings in Black Pearl/Silver, and Ariane Ring in Diamond/Silver, Muse. Hair: River in Iron, Maitreya.

Right: Audrey Coat in Cranberry by Kat Palmer, Immortelle; Bucket Hat (hair removed, reattached to chin) by Alla Ruff, Veschi; Disco Blitz Scarf in Purple from the Disco Blitz tops (store freebie) by Relika Itamae, Relika; Skirt prims (attached to stomach) and glitch pants (tinted black) from the Stray Horse outfit, Paper Couture; Black Leather gloves from Tete a Pied; Hose in Brown by Blaze (from the 13-colour bundle); Black High Heels and Black Pearl Drops (from the River Stone set) by Paper Couture. Hair: Aveda Short Crop in Cinder, ETD.

These coats have been posted about rather often on the Fashion Planet feed, but I wished to include them in my look book with a few accessories, and I was a little late in posting. Of the Artilleri Kats Coats, my favourites are predictably the snow leopard and this, in simple, classic black, both of which I immediately bought upon release; I was very happy with the fit of the prim skirt and the texturing on these coats. Both of Shai’s Natascha coats are must-haves, and I was almost sorry to wear this scarf over the lapel and button detailing.

Nea-Ban

Of the accessories available now, I spent several days wearing this pair of sunglasses from Nea-Ban. It’s mod and therefore tintable, and goes with almost everything. I’m waiting for them to come out with sculptie retro frames. As far as hats go, I’m fairly conservative in comparison to hat gurus like Mariya Nesiote *grins* but the two above are very easy to match with many of the fall coats. Siyu’s cloche is certainly one of my favourites now, and very affordable, while the Veschi hat is 50% off the usual price, so make sure to pay them a visit.

I’d been looking at this ad campaign for Marc Cain by Seregel (highlighted in many forums and blogs) for a few days and wanted to share the photos. The clothes are simple but lovely, and the lighting works very well with the colours. Click for larger versions.
