Bright White or Dark Night -- Featuring *Whimsical Imaginarium* and NOYA

Bright and white or dark as night, that's what dreams are made of... Whimsical Imaginarium offers that and so much more.

This week, the new White Swan gown came to The Couturier's Docks.
Terror Couture released to The Instruments. Both of these offer fun options for this time of year, and with Terror Couture, you can save the little horror pieces and still wear the rest of the ensemble for other events and look oh so sexy with that waspish waist.
I paired Noya's new White Pearls set with the white gown and added other brightly white bits and pieces to complete the overall effect. With the Terror Couture array of items, few accessories were needed to make this look complete.
Whether light or dark, I enjoy the opportunity to play and the exquisite quality of *Whimsical Imaginarium* by Bodza E Tucker aka Bodza Mubble. Thank you!

From Another World -- Featuring Wicca's Wardrobe and October's 4Seasons

I had so much fun putting together the photos for Wicca's Wardrobe and her items she has at The Couturier's Docks. Limited supply, so you should go go go if you haven't been there yet!
She shared her excitement about creating her own mesh this time, only the second time she's created a mesh item, and awesome little tidbit it is too! The Cybernetic Eye MAKES this look incredible, with the space motif, and otherworldly location. I'm wearing her Cayla jacket and Renraku pants, also out this month at TCD (and I've shown you her heels from this round as well on a previous set of photos).
I had to pull out her Space Boots to add to the ambiance of the overall look. I'm also using one of the newest eye shadow releases, Eclectic 2, from October's 4Seasons.I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Celebrating Its Second Birthday - Featuring !Lyrical B!zarre Templates

After the absolute thrill of working with Jamee two nights ago, another wonderful lady and friend greeted me at the beginning of this day with a misty eyes because of her thoughtfulness and ideas. Lyrical B!zarre Templates celebrates its Second birthday and as part of her celebration, she has some of her bloggers and friends photos up in a gallery that might resemble some of the art galleries you've seen in world but in this case, it's photos of her pieces, from different collections, different points of view, and she put up two of my photos, thus came the misty eyes. I had to head over to her gallery after reading her note.
(**By the way, any designer, any time, if I've blogged your item and/or put it on Flickr, you have my permission to reblog, keep the photo and import into SL, use on your website, etc. I take all my own pictures except when Ms. Oooo does, so I ask you give me credit as photog and model, and I hope they encourage consumers to visit your stores, to participate in your events, and overall enhance the Second Life experience.)
While we were both there, I asked her if she'd consider posing with me, so I could have her photo. I'd already styled and shot the first two photos seen here and was on the verge of stripping and starting again when I saw her note regarding the art gallery and 2nd Birthday. It should be open to the public by this weekend and meanwhile, there are ALWAYS new treats at LBT for you to buy, and all over the grid as well, for events, sales, and more.
I try to put her clothing together with other items, shoes, hair, and all that jazz, but change the look of the item slightly, and I do it for a reason. It's fun to repurpose items, but beyond that, her store caters to the designers out there who don't make their own mesh and want to buy full perm designs to use for their own business. I think by editing the items from her store that I blog, I show at least one more way you can play with her work, and make it unique to your tastes.

Happy Birthday to Lyrical Bizarre and many more to come.

Thank You Jamee! Featuring Lybra's COO, ♛ Miss V♛ SWEDEN 2015♛ - Lybra, Wicca's Wardrobe and October's 4Seasons at The Couturier's Docks

Last night was a rough night. On nights like that, I do my best to distract myself and make it one moment at a time. I was working on styling the new dress from Lybra at The Couturier's Docks. Mr. Rage has sold out his new dress at TCD within the first few days for 3 rounds, so I didn't want to miss out on it this time. I glommed over and grabbed mine the moment I saw the notice.
So I have on two different outfits to show you. The first is an unusual pant suit dress combination like nothing I've seen before in SL which makes it exceedingly interesting and fun. Libra's Mizuki may be purchased at The Couturier's Docks at the moment, and is shown as it was created in two photos I shot, then with only the pant suit on, as I turned a cartwheel in the ocean.
Wicca's Wardrobe also has some great new items at The Couturier's Docks, including the heels you can see in the photo of the cartwheel. There are several items from her including brand new mesh she created, something significant to her as her second ever mesh design, and something that no one else has, as a result of her creating it herself. She's very excited to offer this to her faithful customers and all who pass through The Couturier's Docks who might become new customers.
The brand new line of skins begins with Angelina. October's 4Seasons Skins and accessories has its first ever display at The Couturier's Docks. The Milk Skin Tone has never been sold previously and the Walnut Skin Tone might just be the very very best dark skin tone in all of Second Life. October's a great skin creator for a whole array of shades, but I revel in her ability to capture the colors of the darker skins in our world and how she brings them into the game.
Lori Jamee Sandalwood Loeffler aka Jamee Binder aka ♛ Miss V♛ SWEDEN 2015♛ was online and I thought well, it can't hurt to ask, though I knew she had a very busy schedule, and many things she's responsible for at Lybra, with her MVW contest, and the Models Give Back program she helps manage. I nudged her in IM and asked if she had time to do a Lybra pair pose with me. She said yes. I was so excited, I forgot for a little while that it was a rough day. That's sometimes the best medicine of all, by the way. Time, a friend, something fun.
For the pictures I'm in with Jamee, I'm wearing Lybra's Vex. It's a mini that employs the metallic craze that continues to be chic in clothing design this season. Around the chest and again at the skirt, the flexible materials flutter with life and remind me of feathers. Jamee put together her look with a Lybra dress called Daiki along with a jewelry set from Lybra called Taylor that includes a Black Pearls necklace, earrings and ring.

The Talented Kylie Sabra -- Featuring Sabra Style and Zibska - On Location At the Rose Gallery at Angel Manor

I visited Angel Manor's Rose Gallery this evening to take these photos. I did so because Kylie Sabra works as curator of the Gallery, which currently has several artists displayed, and the painter of the pictures, including the piece of photo behind me in the pictures. It shows what an incredibly artistic person she is.
The outfit she created included a gown, Rose Gallery Artist Series Cullum Writer BX, with flourishing flexible skirts, and a waist band of lovely flower blooms. Along with the other items, I found SLink nail appliers also painted with a design to go with the overall outfit. Alone or worn with this gown, they're tiny bits of beautiful art.
I did change out her waist decor for something unusual to keep with the autumn theme and to make the look unique. Instead of using her floral arrangement, I used Zibska's new Corbin headpiece, and wore that headpiece at my waist. You can find Zibska's new headpiece at The Instruments.

BOSL's International Fashion Week Winds Down -- Featuring -AZUL- from BOSL's International Fashion Week, blackLiquid from The Couturier's Docks and NEW from October's 4Seasons

The Best of Second Life International Fashion Week winds down this weekend but all those fantastic new designs you saw at the various shows have now been put out and on display for you to buy what you loved!
 -A Z U L- created this new Ella in Garnet as part of BOSL's Fashion Week, a sexy design that left a lot of skin exposed yet covered the right bits beautifully. A brand new just in time for Halloween group gift is out at October's 4Seasons, Angelina Evil.
A most unique head piece called Banzai from blackLiquid added just a touch of twisted to go with the Evil makeup and the composition made me smile, truly enjoying the chance to style an outfit that is at one moment both elegant and spooky. It's like blending two opposites and it works!

Beautiful Pumpkin Patch -- Featuring Snowpaws from Designer Showcase, MOoh from The Promenade, Wicca's Wardrobe from BOSL International Fashion Week, and {{BSD Design Studio}}

Have you noticed how evident the lingerie models wear on runways this fall appear on all sorts of layers? Gone are the days of prim and proper fashion, buttoning up, zipping, hiding, lifting, 18 hours, and so much more. Now, fashion blends the 'street' clothes with the lingerie items in a mix and match like I've not seen before in my lifetime.
Speaking of Carrie's Lingerie, every month is a great time to visit, but extra special effort for decor goes into some months and Halloween/October might be the most flamboyant fun on one sim for this holiday across all of SL. Countless autumnal and spooky props with poses decorate the store's main level and hidden pumpkins hide an inside hunt treat for those who find all of them. If you invest in a VIP membership, discounts, special releases, and more will tease your fancy and there's a second in house hunt up in the VIP area. This time of year is beyond fun at Carrie's Lingerie.

I put this outfit together this evening with the deliberate desire to add designers from a range of skills, aesthetics and energy to create an entirely new piece to share with you. This came about as I took a hat fromthe Miranda Outfit from Wicca's Wardrobe, something newly released for BOSL International Fashion Week and paired with a style - James - out of the KMADD/Moda box I continue to ruffle through and enjoy - blog after blog - and Mr. Maddox DuPont recently noted that he's added new hair to his collection. It's an excellent time to drop by if you haven't visited in a while.
Snowpaws has a beautiful halter top and wide-legged pant set - Luca - on sale at this month's Designer Showcase. I used the pants for this styling. I appreciated how they hugged the hip with a sleek sensuality then billowed more material the farther down the leg you look.

If your eye wanders from head to toe, the brilliant red of the bra from Carrie's Lingerie peeks out and then another item echoes the bright hues in the heels from BSD Design studio. The Passion of Life name for the heels fits perfectly as a description of both bra and heels. From the store MOoh, a new crop topped short sleeve sweater finishes off the new items shared on this blog. You can find this V-Neck item at The Promenade Gachas and available in several colors. In my world off line, I like layers, so that crazy days that begin at 52 degrees and end at 82 degrees, I can peel off or pull on those layers, just like this item from MOoh.
