[AVENUE] Magazine December 2011

One of my favorite things in SL has been my work with AVENUE Magazine. As Fashion Editor, I've been able to interview the most talent people and share my own views on fashion and style. I've been writing my column, "Fun With Fashion", for three years. It seems like only yesterday and I have to say that I've grown ALOT. I'll save a flashback post for later. IF people ask :P

This month I'm sure you attended the most fabulous Vintage Fair brought to you by Keira Seerose and her team at Chic Management. It was a resounding success and I found inspiration from the theme and also the War Horse editorial in November Vogue.

I hope you enjoy it as much as Mattie and I had fun creating!

[AVENUE] Magazine December 2011

As Fashion Editor of AVENUE Magazine, I'm always thrilled to showcase up-and-coming designers. This month was especially fun as I was explore Faster Pussycat, I kept seeing this editorial of a side-show circus. Styling the looks was inspiring and Brie Wonder was a whiz creating the set. She really is a wonder! Big thanks to Honey Bender of Faster Pussycat for her gracious help and to Paola Tauber, Creative Director of AVENUE Magazine for the amazing layout!

The Bettencourts

Mattie and I have been busy for weeks with our new home at The Grove. Finding the perfect house, decorating, working with the landscapers, and having really the best time. We have completely neglected the blog and our favorite past time of shopping!

We're in love with MESH at the moment. I've been fighting to stay on Phoenix but with all the wonderful creations in Mesh, I have been slowly moving to Firestorm. Today marks my first full day in the viewer. I usually log in, take a picture and leave. But, today was the first time I felt really comfy without urge to reach out for my paci..errr Phoenix. I do miss the interface, but there are some amazing tutorials out there to make it user-friendly to us "die-hard" Phoenix lovers. Do check them out, Mattie showed me and it was a huge help to making the transition easier.

Sorry for the tangent it's been a while and I wanted to share, but back to FASHION! With all the new MESH items, clothing, shoes, and even cars...we couldn't resist a post incorporating our current faves.

*Our Fav*
The new mesh knit coat from Mr. Poet is like cozy perfection while still remaining chic. Both Matt and I are wearing it - a dream fit on us both! It's nice not to have to edit prims.

*Vi's Fav*
Nardya Rousselot released her first mesh creation, the Zoe Platform as an OGlam Shopping exclusive. I love the classic oxford style with the chunky platform. Everyday I keep looking for that upload to RL button.

*Matt's Fav*
The Mesh BMW! I should make him write this part because he's been GAGA over it for a week now but I have to say it's brilliant. The top rolls down, the hood raises, and the textures are highly detailed. Mesh is a wonderful platform for automobiles.

We hope you find your own fun with MESH! I know soon we will be seeing more furniture, houses, decorations, and more! As Mattie, says..."It's the future." So jump on board the Mesh train!

OGlam Celebrates 1st Birthday with Charity Exclusives!

OGlam is proud to celebrate it's FIRST birthday by bringing our community together to support the United Nations World Food Program's Crisis in the Horn of Africa. Over 14 designers have created brand new unreleased and exclusive items for sale benefiting the food operations. Come shop to support this wonderful cause! The event runs November 4-6, 2011!

TAXI to OGlam Shopping

Participating designers include:
GizzA, Chantkare, Finesmith, Nardcotix, Kunglers, Shiki, Champagne, Nemesis, Azoury, Sartoria, [sYs], Faster Pussycat, Peoples, SF Designs, and Sugarsmack

Crisis in the Horn of Africa:
Drought in the Horn of Africa, coupled with conflict in Somalia, has affected over 13 million people.
Thousands of children, women and men are dieing everyday as a result of starvation.
The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) is at the forefront of dealing with this crisis and is mounting food operations in five countries in the region (Somalia, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya and Uganda).
It is our goal to raise awareness and money for this incredible crisis that has not had the kind of attention other human tragedies have garnered to date.
All in-world donations will be made to a special avatar, "HornOfAfricaCrisis Resident," who’s sole purpose is to receive in-world donations and turn them over to the WFP. The WFP has a Paypal account as does this Avatar. All SL transactions and all Paypal transactions will be published on a blog for all to view.

[The Lighthouse]

My Mattie took us on an adventure yesterday in search of the perfect sailboat. We stumbled upon a wonderful Lighthouse and climbed to the top just staring at the ocean as the sailboats passed by. Matteo jumped at the chance to snap some piccies. I'm still amazed he figured out shadows in like 2 mins and snagged these amazing shots! I'll refrain from sharing how long it takes me! Let's just say Mattie is VERY patient!

Don't miss all the amazing end of season sales in SL. The lazy days of summer are coming to a close and it's a perfect time to snatch up some sale items at AOHARU.
