Where Can I Find... Featuring [PS] at Rock Your Rack, ::N2:: and -{ZOZ}- at 24 Squared, [mom ami] at The Instruments and E C R U at Designer Showcase

I love this job!

This second styling of the day, yay the weekend and I'm home!! and it's chock full of really good stuff, stuff YOU WANT to see up close and personal. First, at Rock Your Rack, opening tomorrow September 1, you'll find charitable donations from so many designers, it's incredible. I almost never change my shape for any blog. I've just been the 'Caryn' shape for so long now... and she is me. However, for charity and to support a designer I didn't know til now, here is the shape ::Circe:: from [PS].
The Blue Society dress is the first item I've ever worn from ::N2:: and can be found at 24 Squared, the event that begins September 5th and is sponsored by Siren Productions. Additionally, the nails from -{ZOZ}- are also from this event. They blend a really believable french nail style with colorful art tips, Butterfly Mesh Nails.

The Instruments begin a new month and with it comes new items like [mom ami] hair. I've never used their hair before this, and have on the new Cherly. It's very full bodied, but worked well with the more endowed shape I was wearing.

And finally, the beautiful heels peeking out from under the decorative maxi skirt come from E C R U at Designer Showcase. They're a heel with a personality all their own; you could wear them with just about any style, to a party, lunch with a friend, and you'd fit in perfectly.
Hopefully, you're motivated to visit each of these events and special rooms for great deals this month, and don't wait too long. There are exclusives and special details you will want to explore when you get there.

Please remember the Rock Your Rack event is a fundraiser/charity event and donations go to Breast Cancer Research Foundation. If you want to donate directly, visit: https://www.stayclassy.org/fundraise?fcid=283425

Friends, Fun, Events and More -- Featuring A.F.I Designs, Moondance Boutique, Designer Showcase w/Lindy and 24 Squared w/.:JUMO:.

I'm home! This afternoon, I slept for more than a little nap, and feel like I might catch up soon. It's amazing how much sun and surf demand of the body. Even if all you do is sit there!

A good lady, great DJ and friend also happens to create content for sale at her store, A.F.I Designs. Every now and then, she nudges my IM and asks, "Want to blog something for me?" This time, it's this unique two layer mini. The alpha layer of the top piece is shear, and the second piece is solid. Chic and very fashion now.
Siren Productions puts together awesome events every other month. I don't know how they keep up with everything. I admire the work and enjoy participating as a blogger. Once, I even got to be one of their live models. If you visit 24 Squared, you'll see great designs like the clutch here from .:JUMO:. - only one example of multiple awesome pieces JUMO has at this event by the way!
Before I went to Event Only blogging, I worked with a classy group of various designers. The jewelry set I found in my folder from Moondance Boutique says "Earth Day" set. But it's something I haven't used yet, so here is Mia Earth Set. It matched the dress perfectly. So I'm glad I discovered it.

>Asset< continues to create a very middle of the road unisex style for hair, and this Lasher hair recently released follows that formula, and would suit either gender, depending on your aesthetic and personal taste. I find that I really enjoy using men's hair, especially when it's a short style. It's often scruffier, and looks more like the hair styles that are mussed on the runway.

Fixing My Mistakes - Featuring 24 Squared With >Asset< and Blacklace; Featuring - DE Boutique from Designer Showcase

This week I've been away, on vacation, and happily soaking up the sun. Perhaps the sun addled my brain or perhaps I did that all on my own. Either way, I've had a terrible time with focus and details. I've sent apologies to the designers that were effected by my loss of focus. I'm glad they were thoughtfully forgiving. I'm glad that I'm allowed to be human and err from time to time. I'm ready, however, to get my balance once more. I'll be returning home tomorrow.

Items I have to share include two items from the 24 Squared Event that begins on September 5. It's a Siren Productions event, and will include a variety of designers including the two represented by this blog. Within the time frame, fashion shows, live models, and post show parties are scheduled.
Blacklace offered this bustier and shorts combination, along with multiple colors not showing in the photograph as part of their 24 Squared elements. The variety allows for all sorts of mixing and matching and makes it easy to style.
>Asset< and this slicked back hairstyle, offers this exclusive Vono Megapack at 24 Squared and only then, will you be able to purchase it. It will not be in stores after the event. Also, a limit of 25 per color and 25 fatpacks will be sold, and then they will be gone for good. If you love it, you should haste to grab it while the gettins' good.
I thought this image would be a good way to close this blog. It's a little bit like how I feel. The Wild West event has been mentioned in a previous blog showing the Saloon Pose set. This pose comes also from IE from it's Slain set. Once in a while, when we over do it, we feel like falling out on the floor, and taking a nap... A N Y W H E R E. So I think I will.

A Wonderful Whirlwind of Fun -- Featuring Wicca's Wardrobe at Couturier's Docks and Rock Your Rack

Wicca's Wardrobe - A Wonderful Whirlwind Of Fun -

I'm so thrilled to work with Wicca and Wicca's Wardrobe from time to time, at least the times our paths cross! She's got one of the most unique styles of anyone I know so it's logical that her designs for her store are also unique and so very Wicca.

This time, I styled two outfits, using many of the same materials so I could showcase items from both the Couturier's Docks and the Rock Your Rack exclusive she's created to help raise money for Breast Cancer Research along with Models Giving Back. Both are cleverly constructed and something new to the eye. I love that.
The Couturier's Dock outfit includes a top/skirt combination, Violetta, with a pair of toeless shoe-leggings, Lavinia. The perfect pedicure peeps out at the open toed window. A top hat and dress, Nephele Gown, that looks as if it might have stepped out from another century shows a completely different side of Wicca's designs, and makes for the second of two contrasting pieces that show her diversity.

A New Designer On My Radar - Sabra Style - and the Ever Glorious Chop Zuey

Every so often I receive an item from Kylie Sabra at Sabra Style. I wasn't sure how I got on her radar, but I was happy to be there and enjoyed the array of items she sent for me to review. I've done three other items from her shop (found in the Renaissance Galleria), and tonight I styled KellyAnn in fuschia. My favorite part of this dress is the mesh slinky sleeves. I really enjoy seeing new ways mesh has been adapted by different designers to create a wide vision of art.
I popped into her store to get a sense of it's layout, her array of items to be bought, and her general aesthetic. There are multiple colors of some items, just like KellyAnn, so you have the opportunity to find something that suits your skin tone and color wheel as well as your personal tastes.
Chop Zuey by Belle Roussel has the most beautiful collection of necklace, earring, bracelet (not shown in photo) and a ring, done with a white gold backdrop and a variety of precious gem stones. I've chosen Garnet for these photos and will show you some of the other stones in other photos in the coming days so you can get good look at the quality and artistry that always exists at Chop Zuey!
