Flower Power…

RL has kept me very busy over the last couple of weeks (hence no posts), not least in the garden where I’ve been enjoying the British Summertime (and Pims on the lawn in the afternoon). Subsequently, I’ve been unable to think of little else than the great outdoors, flowers, plants and such. I don’t know whether its my current interest in the garden or whether my obsession is being mirrored in SL, but in-world I seem to see flowers wherever I look. I am sure that the current craze for all things floral in SL fashion has been heavily influenced by Paper Couture’s truly inspirational Spring collection and the RL trend for flower prints. Whatever the reason, being a proper girlie girl, I am loving it. My inventory is so blooming with pieces featuring flowers, it was hard to know which ones to pick for this post. I hope you enjoy my selection <3.

1. A big thank you to Sheltered Heart for sending me the new hair styles from House of Heart. I love it when designers send me things because they value my opinion; it gives me the warm fuzzies :). However, I won’t include review items in my posts unless I absolutely love them and the Breeze style certainly fits into the latter category. The flowers are scripted with an abundance of colour options and are beautifully sculpted, and I adore the flexi curls. House of Heart Breeze Hair in Birch (Browns pack) (L$195)

2. If you’ve read my first ever post, you’ll know that I wasn’t a fan of handbags because I don’t think they work well with AO’s. Well I’m pleased to see things have moved on since then and that designers are now starting to include poses with their bags. Hurrah! This cute little bag includes two nice poses (side and front) and comes in a twin-pack with maroon (illustrated) and ecru options. Gisele Maman Bag in Maroon (L$280)

3. This neckband from Icing is delightful and different. It’s incredibly detailed and well crafted, especially the feathers which waft when you move. Icing Rose Ribbon Choker (L$195)

4. What I like best about this necklace is the placement of the pearl strand layers which gives it a natural feeling of movement. It’s a nice length which works with a lot of outfits and is offered in flower and non-flower options and in a range of shades at the main Atelier AM store. Atelier AM Layered Flower Necklace in Pink (L$170)

5. The designers at [glow] Studio are prolific in their brilliance right now and every week it seems as if they gift us with yet another selection of accessory goodies. I was just preparing for this post when Linka Demina dropped these new earrings on me … perfect timing … thank you Linka! [glow] Studio Bad Flower Earrings (L$160)

Time to Shine…

Sometimes when ‘the chips are down’ and you have no one else to rely upon but yourself, the world can seem a scary place. However, I think given the right frame of mind and a good old dose of determination, these moments in life can form into our finest hours.

Having gained some experience in working with graphics, I can imagine that there is great skill in creating metallic and shiny fabric textures in SL. Of course our talented Second Life Designers manage to pull it off beautifully and with stunning effect. Metallic shimmers are definitely a key RL trend this season and I’m pleased to see this reflected in current collections. When all around us seems to be doom and gloom, my advice is to don your sequins, slap on your lippy, and and prepare to dazzle with show stopping effect!

Now, isn’t it your time to shine?…

second-life-style-tipsI recently discovered Fab.Pony after my colleague on the Focus Fashion Agency Team, Seinna Fredriksson, wrote about them in her brilliant and weekly post, Confessions of a Shopaholic. Well, as I later commented on Sienna’s post, I went, I saw, and ever since I have been very much in awe! If you’re planning a big night out in SL, don’t even consider putting on your dancing shoes until you’ve seen what Fab.Pony has to offer. All those who love the recent eighties’ revival will find joy here (check out the Denim Rahrah Skirts… Fab.ulous!). Click here to visit the main store.

In the second shot, I’ve combined two necklaces; I often do this or combine a necklace with a scarf by attaching one item to the chest and one to the spine. This is possible because prim items move in the same way when attached to the chest or spine. Mixing up your prim items in this way is great for styling and creates a unique look. When attaching item to any other point then the default position, you’ll have to edit the placement afterwards, so make a copy first.
