[Alice] in Wonderland

The Arcade Gacha Event opens in just under FIVE hours!! Are you ready?  I have lots in store to promote the event but I had to start with the Handverk Tea Party! It's fabulous beyond words! As a huge Alice in Wonderland fan, I had to get the entire collection!

The skin is a lovely special edition for the gacha event from Glam Affair. It's from the unreleased Renee line and I fell in love with the paleness and pink cheeks. Paired with an oldie but goody from Paper Couture, it fit the Wonderland theme so very well!

Happy ARCADE Shopping!
Love, Vi

[Shadow] of Your Heart

A falling star fell from your heart
And landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them
And now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat... [FW]

Another stunner release from DRIFT by Kallisto Destiny, the Cazibe corset. She released a new print silk Damask line. It's a gorgeous collection filled with colors. The blue is dramatic and striking and so posh!

Paired with classic elements, like fur collars, leather gloves and staple wrap skirt, the whole look screams POSH! Blue, cream, gold and beige is a tres chic color palette. It really makes the pattern on the corset pop. 

Anyone who knows me will say that I'm a pose addict!  I can't even keep them all straight, but I have a few favorite posemakers, and Rogan Diesel of Diesel Works always comes up with great collections. I used ones from the Colleen single pose collection.

The new hair release from Lelutka makes you think they just cannot come up with anything better.  This Electra style is a wispy wonder, that I adore!

Bees Through the Seasons comes around only FOUR times per year and the latest cycle is filled with adorable finds! I love the Pididdle BeeHive Special Edition Bowtastic Hairbow!  It's a fabulous creation from the lovely Brutus Martinek! Don't forget to pick up the must have offering from Glam Affair! The stunning Roza Honey Bee skins had a lovely range to choose from but by far my fav was 01, with the dramatic yellow shadow and goth black lip

I love to mix new things with finds from my inventory and a few special items. The new mesh knee platform stretch boots from Baiastice are a sexy addition! Paired with the stylish Ricielli Mesh Coat and Glow Studio Chess Earrings from past TDR, I really enjoyed putting a whimsical and vampy BEEstyle together!

COCO has just released the most amazing mesh biker jacket I've ever seen. It's chic and stylish to the max! There is a new collection of turtlenecks and skinny pants to match, but I wanted to personalize it a bit more and play with proportions.

The 10L Y-tank turtleneck from VG on marketplace is a bargain for any fashionista, it is on clothing layers and mixes well with mesh and non-mesh styles. I had this in another color from LONG ago, but happily it's on marketplace now for a STEAL! (Fatpack here for 40L)

I love Celoe, and I could buy their entire store and die happy. It's superbly crafted and so very stylish! Paired with the slim cut of the biker jacket, the wide leg trousers add an interesting look of proportion. I love the pockets on these trousers, they are open just enough to let you know that these must be the most comfy pants in the world!

My skin is from the Glam Affair Lilith line from Aida Ewing, the Artic tone is aptly named for us pale girls. The makeup combos she creates are spectacular! I love the bright pop of blue on the lid and that perfect rose fuschia lip. It's the thing that sets her skinline from the rest, her ability to come up with creative combinations and keep each release fresh! Keep them coming Aida!

Black Friday has come and gone sadly but I must say my wallet is very happy. Who knew one could spend so much on SALE items??  I most certainly had a lot of fun at the Euphoria Black Friday sale!  My fav find was this 50L dress from .SHI!

It's a mesh wonder, with extreme cutouts along the top and in the middle. I love the color scheme of this too, red/white/blue feels so patriotic but that splash of terracotta is brilliant! I chose to highlight the color theory with my hair and accessories.

The bold look called for a strong hair, and any of the braided styles from dDX fit the bill. I loved this version in white! Most always, I'm rocking my dark brown hair...but I'm happy to make a change for something special. You cannot go wrong with skin from Glam Affair, it's posh and fierce! The Lilith line is still one of my favs, although I know Amberly is coming very soon! 

Before I say goodbye, I had to show the amazing back! You'll make a statement coming/going in with the stunning back details of the .SHI dress and  must-have Maitreya Jazz boots

Quick post today because I've been trying for days to get this shot.  The set has been something I've been dying to work with, an amazing mesh creation from Nardya Rousselot the Shana Walk-In Closet for The Loft is perfection. Filled with some of my favorite items from my inventory, I was just hoping to catch the perfect photo. To my rescue came the lovely and talented Kallisto Destiny with her super computer and graphics card! The shot came out exactly how I wanted... a bit melancholy but beautiful. Feeling a bit like the girl who has everything, but nothing at all.

I love the new hat from Drift, it's really an editorial piece that more than sets the mood for any high fashion shot. Kallisto Destiny is a doll and whipped this version up for me to match the new coat from Belgravia. For the ultimate ode to fall, I paired the new leggings from Baiastice with the ankle boots from Kunglers and topped off with some must-have accessories. First, the Slink mesh hands because well...they are awesome!  And, lastly, my uber cute mini crossbody bag from Tee*fy. It's an old gacha find but well worth the money I dropped to get this color! 

Happy Shopping!

[Urban] Chic

I adore Giz Seorn to infinity and beyond! She is the sweetest person and a fabulous designer, who along with her partner Auster, make the best couple in SL. GizzA is chock full of amazing creations from casual to couture. There truly is something for everyone - men and women alike!  As one of her "HEROES", I feel everyday like a kid at Christmas from her generosity. Honestly, I don't think I could ever really show her how appreciative I am for all she does for me, her friends and her group. So, here I am today trying to show off her amazing mesh tube dress and clutch!

Mesh really is just fabulous! I love that I can try pretty much any pose and it holds the correct shape. I love the detailing and textures that have more life with the platform. The entire look is mesh except for the hair from Lelutka (it's one of my favs!). 

 The MOLiCHiNO fur collar is on my must-have accessory list for this fall. It's like the perfect fashion pop to any outfit. Aurelia did a fabulous job with this collar and I do hope she releases MORE colors. HINT HINT!

I'm still loving the Faith skin from [PXL]. It's really well made and a much softer version of his traditional skins. He has done a great job putting out the skins too for purchase, you have numerous options for eyes and lips to add to your package. Plus the base skin comes with a freckle options, which I'm so happy for because I don't have to use one of my valuable tattoo layers.

I do love the poses from Slouch by Eira Juliesse!! Her poses are very editorial and perfect for runway or photography. She's currently just on Marketplace until she builds stock to open her inworld location. Stay tuned, because great things are coming from her!

Happy shopping everyone!!

[sYs] Jungle

 The talented sisterly duo at [sYs] has released the fabulous new Jungle Collection. It's the perfect fit for any urban jungle. The full-range includes menswear and womens' wear with winter hats, jackets, pants and boots all entirely of MESH!

I love the texture of this dress, it's got a fabulous metallic sheen to it works well on it's own or paired with leggings. It has a classic shape with a surprise cut-out in the back that will WOW! Paired with the fantablous thigh-high boots from [sYs], you'll most definitely make a statement.

If you haven't seen the stunning ROZA skin line from Glam Affair, please run now! Aida has offered several special editions for events such as Collabor88 and for the [sYs] Jungle Runway Show. I fell in love with the special Baroque edition she created a few cycles ago for Collabor88 and it really fit with this future urban scene!

As many may know, I'm a pose whore. Yes the first step is admitting it. I am a junky fiend when it comes to great new poses. The new Miaa line from Diesel Works is a must-have!  Inspired by the uber-amazing Miaa Rebane, this editorial collection gives that added edge to any photos. 

Happy Shopping!

[Time After Time]

Today is all about newness and SALES! First, a stunning cocktail dress from Countdown. The shade of green is so very luscious and decadent. Antonia has released a collection of fanciful cocktail attire that will have us all on the best dressed lists as we head into the New Year. Yes, folks.... 2013 is just around the corner!

The first sale you MUST attend is the 50% off HAT sale at Bliss Couture! I didn't even know where to start, everything is just amazing and feels like something I don't want but NEED!  If you are a hat addict like myself, please don't miss out on this fabulous sale. The sale runs from November 9 - 18, 2012. 

The lovely July Raymaker is a pose maker extraordinaire!  I've long been an addict of Manifeste, and if you are an avid pose collector you will need to take advantage of her specially priced Clean Up 2012 package. You can score 200 poses for only $399! It's a unique collection and I hopped around happily snapping up photos using her well-made poses. Not only for photographers, her poses work extremely well on any runway.

I'll end by showing off my more decadent pieces, Slink mesh hands adorned with jewelry from Donna Flora. Of course the perfect clutch from Baiastice, oddly titled... Queen Hobo. I don't think any Queen would let a Hobo near that purse!

[Denim] Splash

The cool weather is upon us but that doesn't mean we have to surround ourselves in fall colors! I love a pop of color with denim. You can perk up a basic denim with a splash of reds, oranges, and even turquoise!  With the newish releases from Drift you'll be happy in love with the amazing options. New designer Kallisto Destiny (\o/ mah humps!) has been a MACHINE with all of the great fashionable releases!  I'm sorely behind in blogging and I had to show off my new armwarmers and boatneck denim shirt. 

Pairing the denim top with a great TDR find from mijn.botique, the cosmic jeans! I love the splash of color across the fabric. It went perfectly with my Drift pieces.  I was beginning to feel like a MESH hoarder with my collection of goodies!

Movie star chic is the mood for today's style. Something about a top hat with some black and white, that makes any woman feel like they just stepped off the silver screen. It's powerful and sharp!

This sexy number is one of the latest releases from Indyra Originals called Garbo. Full of vintage style and sass, it's a must have for your collection. I love that Indyra mixed mesh with prims flawlessly! Of course the new SLink Mesh Hands are just amazing and make any photograph a breeze to edit because the hands look so terrific. I don't condone smoking, but one just looks so chic with the elegant cigarette holder from The Sea Hole. (No one's health was harmed in the shooting of this blog!)

If you don't have the studio staple, Model Chair from Diesel Works... What are you waiting for? It has 23 poses and a great addition for anyone who blogs. Poses range from classy to seductress. Rogan Diesel's shop is plum full of great poses and collections for any blogger or photographer. I love that he's always updating and adding new collections.

I'm still in love with the Lilith skin line from Glam Affair, the Europa tone is just a perfect shade of pale. Not to red and not too grey. Just right and that's hard to do. As always Aida is ahead of the curve with make-ups but you can't go wrong with a classic red lip!

Even with a little classic ones needs a bit of drama! Kungler's jewelry is always a great statement piece. The nightbloom collection is an exceptional chic look for any jewelry buff!

On my toes, the epitome of classic chic...the Zoe Monochrome Platforms from NX-Nardcotix. Nardya outdid herself with these oxfords! She has extended the line with more color options but I've also been in love with the classic, B/W.
