GOLden Goodies

Each month we showcase the best of GOLden Shopping in AVENUE Magazine. This month we combed the sim to discover the best jewelry, shoes, and fashions. Great accessories can make an outfit!

Stunning jewelry always makes a statement. The Boheme necklace by Julia Merosi of Je Suis makes you wish there was an upload to real life jewelry box button!

The Sigma belt from AMG Boudoir is one of those most have pieces for any wardrobe. It's versatile enough to pair with denim or dress trousers.

PACADI ups your couture style with this dramatic belted skirt from the Aditi outfit. You can add this to leggings or bodysuits to dial up the fierce!

Nardcotix created a wardrobe must-have with the Breezie Stillettos. The strappy design is super sexy and comes in a wide range of colors.

Paper Couture A/W 2010

Paper Couture has a new collection. I am struggling for words not because I can't think of any... it's just there are too many to use to describe the amazing work of Ava and Cora Lu. Here are the first that came to mind.

Amazing. Stunning. Fashion-forward. 80s-Ethno Fabulosity. Genius.

I was lucky enough to be one of four models in the exclusive launch of their new collection and while locked away in my skybox styling... I had to take some pictures. This is only 3 looks from a collection of 12 released today on the Modavia Fashion Week sims.

Now bow down to the altar of Paper Couture.

Style Cards (L-R):
1. Paper Couture Crossroads with Bone Feather Set (Necklace and Curl Earrings) and Ostrich Leather Shoes
2. Paper Couture Sequin Jungle with Hammered Earrings and Ostrich Leather Shoes
3. Paper Couture White Cheetah with Carved Bead Necklace and Oversized Gold Circles Earrings and Ostrich Leather shoes

Casa del Shai: The Instinct Collection

Casa del Shai is proud to present her brand new collection, called "The Instinct Collection", at Modavia Fashion Week, today at 4 PM SLT.

After taking a break to master the techniques of the programme Maya 3D, Shai Delacroix is back in full production, and does it with an outstanding series - the first after the infamous Boudoir Collection in 2009 - inspired by a concept related to instincts, both animal and human.

Fall is about to begin; it's time for luxe fur and leathers. Casa del Shai uses them as a mean of communication: an expression freedom, the need to be real, and natural - in Shai's usual and fine fashion taste.

This collection will showcase her gift with textures and amazing new sculpted creations, and is is filled with luxe leathers, rich animal prints, cozy knits, and silken lace.

Have you got Animal Instincts?

Join us @ 4 PM at Modavia Fashion Week

The complete collection will be exclusively for sale at the MODAVIA sim for the duration of fashion week September 9 - 16, 2010.
Casa Del Shai Boutique @ Modavia Fashion Week.

Soon after to be released at Casa del Shai

I hope you enjoy the collection!

All the best,

Shai Delacroix

Model Picnic

Machang Pichot is one of the loveliest people in all of SL and also one of the most amazing content creators. She's always got something wonderful up her sleeve, or dress or shoes...

In an ode to Machang, the awesome (yet stinky) Boe Cortes suggested we do a little tribute post to our lovely Japanese friend. After much fashion styling debate (he can be difficult :P) we headed over to the Pixel Dreams to strut our stuff. He likes to hog the screen, even if I try to push him out of the way. No worry you can just divert your eyes from his pixels (as if - we all know he's hot).

Anyway, I do hope you enjoy our stylings! Head over to AOHARU today and check out the latest Summer releases!

The stone embellishment yet casual style make these a must have for summer, and you really can wear these with anything because the stones are color change too! *Dies* Don't ask me how long I've played with these shoes... as soon as I was allowed to wear them in public I haven't taken them off. You'll have to pry them from my cold dead pixels!

In honor of this amazing new shoe line... Nardcotix is issuing a Blogger Challenge! Play along today and you can win your choice of a MANA color pack! Check out the Nardcotix Blog for details.
