Cinderella Couture

It seems ages since when I posted a gown… But I couldn’t resist to this new release from SOLIDEA FOLIES. Combined with a diva fur stole and new PAPER COUTURE hair, I feel like a modern chic Cinderella ready to rock the ball ;-)

I love this new skin from CLEF DE PEAU called Julia, so detailed and perfectly beautiful.  Available in different tones, it has so many makeups and different options to customize it that you definately need to check it out.

Military Green

Hello guys, I have to say I’m amazed by the quality of some new items in these spring 2013 collections.

As you already know, I’m always careful about the quality of the textures and fabric I wear, and I love when designers put special attention to this in making their clothes.

I hope you like this outfit, and please feel free to give me feedbacks whenever you’d like, I really appreciate them!

Isabella

Today I want to tell you about a wonderful event that happen every year in SecondLife, where hundreds of people give their time, creativity and money to help raise funds and awareness on behalf of the ‘American Cancer Society’: FASHION FOR LIFE.

This year from March 9th – 17th, an incredible 9 sims built by some of the grids best artists and builders will open to the public based on the theme of ‘The Seven Ancient Wonders of the World.’

Mila Tatham of Solidea Folies made me very happy when she asked me to shoot the advertising of one of the outfits she prepared to support this wonderful cause. What I’m going to show you today is Isabella, a simple but gorgeous mesh outfit that you can win as gatcha prize!

In Silver

Hello guys, it’s finally Saturday! I was ready to go out with friends today but sadly I have fever :-( Anyway, this one I’m showing you today is the look I would wear in rl to go out on a saturday afternoon in Milan.

As you know metallic colors are a trend for this season and when I saw this dress I literally jumped on my chair. It’s so detailed and beautiful! I found it at Collabor88 where it’s available in several metallic tones. The brand is R2 Fashion and their store is absolutely worth a visit.

I also like a lot this new jacket from Solidea Folies called Rifo to add a touch of color to the outfit. In the same color of the jacket, I’m wearing the new Finesmith necklace Nes in Aquamarine, new H.M.A.E.M. The Dune Boots in Black and a gorgeous clutch with diamonds from a new accessories store called BeloD. For this style I chose to wear a simple ponytail from LeLutka to complete the chic look.

I hope you will enjoy the weekend! :-)

I’m really impressed by the latest releases of ALB Dreams Fashion and I especially love Lia Gown. Its gorgeous fabric is so detailed and rich. You can wear this gown in two versions: with the shoulder wrap and flexi prims or without them (as I did in the photo). You can also combine it with Antje Coat, a very elegant white lace long coat.

 alb fb

I chose to wear the new Solidea Folies headpiece with necklace and earrings called Vers.5, to add an edgy flavour to the outfit. It’s available in white or in red (exclusively at Zenshi sim).

I will post soon more news from these two amazing designers :-)
