Another Unique & Lovely Gown From Addoro Design

A few days ago, I posted about the Purple Zebra outfit from Addoro Design saying that it was one of the most unique outfits I have ever seen. I also mentioned how Addoro Design has a wide range of outfit categories. So today, I will post a formal mermaid dress called "Xeena" which is an outfit from Mew Denimore's formal line. This gown is also unique and different. It has many flexi prim parts that create a vibrant movement as you move in this dress. The interesting thing is that the soft flowing flexi parts create a very feminine image while the black & white colours of the dress as well as the metal belt that sits on the lower waist adds a strong image as well.

The front cut is also a unique round shaped cut that drops quite deep and there is a triangular slit in the back which adds an interesting look to the whole design. Except for the studded black pearl earrings I am wearing in the pictures, all jewelry came with the dress in the set. I chose these earrings as I wanted something very simple since the dress and the ornaments are quite rich in design and I thought anything bigger will be an over-kill.

The hair I am wearing here was just released by a good friend of mine and also my model student in a model academy I am teaching in. She owns a store that sells photo studios, backdrop texute and hair called "Crystal Line" in a Japanese sim. She developed this hair together with a Japanese hair creator. It's a intricately woven updo and comes with glowing pearl ornaments that can be removed so you can wear the hair with and without the pearls. In the pictures here, I have worn it so I can show you what it looks like.

I know this is a bit of a side track, but she sells packs of textures that you can load in any photo studio you have in-world for super low prices of 10L and 15L for a pack of 20 sheets of texture, so if you are looking for additional texture, her store might be worth a peep.

A $1L Sale For A Sweet Purple Dress - Japan

A sweet little store in Japan called "Towa" owned by Towa Lax just re-opened after refurbishment. To commemorate this, she has released a purple chiffon dress for $1L. It's a cocktail dress made with very soft flexi parts that flow gently as you move and comes in 5 colours (only the purple one is discounted). She also released 5 prim nail items that match the colours of the dress, as well as a short bolero jacket in many colours, also designed to go with this dress. The while bolero, however, can only be won by "lucky letter*."

I also found this pale pink cocktail dress which was available in black too. It's a very sweet mini cocktail dress that would be nice to wear to a non-formal party. The Stiletto Moody shoes in "blush" colour were perfect for this dress and I wore jewelries with pink from Virtual Impressions. This is a jewelry store that has very nice jewelry at very reasonable prices and carries a wide range of jewelry that had "pink" in it. So one day, when I was looking for a set of pink jewelry, I tp'd here and found this set which was exactly what I was looking for.

This hair is from Sparkle Skye and it comes with flowers. There were many flower colours who could choose from to match outfits you wanted to wear them with. As this store is one that has many lovely wedding gowns, I think this hair was initially designed to be worn with a wedding gown but of course, I use it with any kind of dress as I don't expect to wear wedding gowns many times except for wedding shows.

*Note: This is not a lucky chair. It's a vendor poster with lucky alphabets and numbers, where you have to click on the vendor to win the item displayed if your letter comes up. This system is used quite often in Japanese sims.

I Love Bax Coen Accessories!

I got this notecard that said Bax Boots have come up with an updated version of the red and black ankle boots that I had already bought when they first came out. But it also said, those who had the earlier versions could come to the store to get them updated. Oh nice! :D

So I tp'd to the store and after happily getting mine updated for free, I found some cool accessories. I knew the store had bangles from some time ago but the ones in the store now were called "Bax Flower Bracelets" and came in four colour types; brown, gray, red and special. Each of these had diamonds that could be hidden or shown and also colour change features where you can change the colours in the colour range. So if you got the red one, you could change it to different shades of red, such as bordeau, Venetian (a Ferrari red like bright red), rust, etc. Oh how nice again! The "Special" by the way, had colours like purple, turquoise, orange, etc.

In general, I love love love bangles. They add colour to the looks and are big enough to be noticed so I can play with colours using bangles. But what often happens is, I may find a red bangle but when I wear it, I find that it's not THAT red that I am looking for. This is so annoying. But with these sets, I can probably choose the red closer to the one I am looking for!

Bax Boots also had a line-up of resizable prim belts that matched the colour of the boots available with exactly the same colour names. Here I used the "Silver Brocade" boots and belt with white bangles which was a colour that was available in the "gray colour set." The outfit is something I had, "Lili Black" from Giusia Creations, but I used it as a short pants suit without using the prim skirt. I love the simplicity of this with only a ruffled neck and the rest being just black. It brings out the accessories in a styling case like this one where I want to focus on these accessory items.

The gloves I am wearing here came in the "Lili Black" set. But it was very well made and I loved matching them with other outfits. So to make it easier to use them when I wanted to, I just made a copy of these gloves and added it to my "gloves" folder. The hat here comes with this hair from Exxess. It's probably meant to be worn for more RP-like looks as it's called "Black Widow" but I like to wear this with more regular clothes like the one I have today.

Great Italian Designs From Addoro

Addoro Design is a store in the Best of Italian sim that I came across. Mew Denimore is the creative designer here who creates outfits ranging from lingerie to gowns, sexy outfits, casuals, town wear...you name it. She even has shoes to match the outfits she makes! So if you're like me, going nuts just to find that right red or right pale purple, in this store, she has it all. You will find the right coloured shoes right beside the dress you are looking at.

Addoro is a store not only for matching shoes. Mew has some of the most unique outfits I have ever seen in SL that are also fashionable at the same time, along side her gorgeous outfits. And she also has accessories such as necklaces inside the set that are also very unique and match the outfits wonderfully. In fact, some of the jewelry she has are so lovely that I match them up with other outfits I have, using them separately as jewelry pieces.

Today I will show you the most unique outfit she had. It's a pants suit with an impressive face graphic on the whole front side on the bodice!! The funky sunglasses that I am wearing here are also in the set. It also has a belt-like prim part around your waist with a tail like flexi piece hanging at the back together with what looked like half a skirt.

She was so unique with such great designs that I decided to cover her in a magazine article that I am working on and I got together with Mew Denimore to choose the outfits that we wanted to show. And we were categorizing them in categories such as "lingerie", "town wear", "formal" and so forth, and this outfit was one neither of us could categorize. So we called it "original." It was THAT unique!

I'll have to show you some of the more "normal" looking gorgeous things she has too, but for today, I will show her "most unique and funky" fashion.

A Sweet Casual Style With A Retro Look

I was walking around the Kensington sim in London, England and came across this really nice store called "Gbberish." It had casual outfits that had a nostalgic look and had retro-looking furniture displayed as well. It even had footwear! The whole atmosphere of the store was so befitting to the British scenery, looking like a store I might find in Nottingham.

This Kensington sim, by the way, is also a sim you must visit if you hadn't yet. You will find the Knights Bridge Metro station and buildings so well made with art deco bars and beautiful gardens atop buildings. So it's worth strolling around and looking around. You will sure have a great experience.

Anyway.....so here are the two outfits I got at "Gbberish." The first one, "Audrey's Attic Puff Dress in Vintage Roses" is a short dress with a lovely texture of roses with that antique feel to it which comes with short gloves as well as long ones. But I liked the sweet short gloves to go with this one. I matched it with a similarly retro looking hair style from "Magika." It's a cute two-bun look and came with a black hair band with a ribbon on the side. So I edited the hair and changed the colour of the hair band to match the dress.

I also chose a cute looking pair of shoes from "Shiny Things." I liked the retro look of this pair that fit the outfit perfectly. But for jewelries, I decided to go with the red/brownish colour in the dress instead of making everything green.

Gbberish - Audrey's Attic Puff Dress (Vintage Roses)

Outfit: Gbberish, Audrey's Attic Puff Dress (Vintage Roses)
Shoes: Shiny Things, Mary Geos (spring green)
Necklace & Earrings: Lucas Lameth Fashion Jewel, Han Hana Necklace & Earrings Set (violet/red silver)
Hair: Magika, Betty (black & maroon)
Skin: Minnu, MMS-LondonFair, makeup 8b

The second outfit is a bit more casual but nonetheless sweet with a retro feel like the first one. It comes with this aqua coloured socks and also a bordeau coloured pair but I chose to wear the aqua one with this ankle boots which I also found in the same store.

The boots came in six colours and had really nice "different" colours such as "Bubble gum." I just loved the whole taste that gave me a somewhat nostalgic memory of my childhood, not that I was actually wearing something like this.

With all outfits from "Gbberish", I think you can really have fun matching them up with various accessories with various colours. I'm already trying out different looks myself!

Gbberish - One Love Knitted Dress (Honeysuckle)

Outfit (including socks): Gbberish, One Love Knitted Dress (Honeysuckle)
Ankle Boots: Gbberish, Candy Shop Boots (Choco)
Necklace: Swallowtail Designs, Jupiter Necklace (red)
Bracelet: Swallowtail Designs, Volume Bracelet (red)
Hair: R's Hair Style, "Kay" (black)
Skin: same as above

Usually I never post pics of the stores but this time, the atmosphere of the store was so nice that I decided to take a snapshot and post it here.


And here is a link to Kensington, London. Enjoy!!

A New Italian Designer

I was checking out a store which I thought might interest me yesterday but unfortunately it was not what I had expected. Disappointed, I decided to look around as it was a sim I had never stepped foot on and it was always interesting to see places that were new to me. If good, I thought, I would make a landmark so I could come back later.

I had already been let down so I wasn't too enthusiastic. So I strolled from one store to another taking quick peeps and moving on to the next. There I found one that somewhat intrigued me. I went inside, looked around and thought "oh this might be a good store." I found a few outfits that I liked but for some reason, none of the vendors were set to "buy." If one of them was not functioning, it could be a mistake. But none??? I looked around for a "coming soon" sign or something to indicate that it was not yet opened but I found nothing. So, as usual, I decided to contact the owner and leave a message. Maybe she might tell me when it will be ready.

Soon I got a message from dolceluna Myoo, who was the owner and designer of "My Dreams" together with her husband rover Villota. She tp'd over to the store and told me that she had other stores and took me to two other stores, one of which was her main store. It was a huge two story building but still only filled half way on the first floor. To my surprise, she was a new designer who just started setting up her stores about a week ago, officially planning to open in February. To add to my surprise, she said she only started making outfits a few months ago! But for a new creator, the number of outfits she had in the store and the level of her outfit quality was quite impressive. If she is this new and can create this much, just imagine 6 months down the road?

dolceluna was from Italy and unfortunately, we had to communicate with the help of a translator but in spite of that, we had a great chat.

Let me show you one outfit I got here which is called "Diamond Red." There was a black and blue version which, as you can see as in this red set, is not totally blue but rather blue mixed in black. I loved how the red was mixed with black in this one also to give it a subtle red look and how she added prim parts that do nothing but add sparkles to the otherwise very simple gown. But the simple form of the gown enhanced the effect of these sparkles and I just loved it!

I wish dolceluna and her husband rover the very best of luck!! I will, for sure, come back for more!

Love, Love, Love These Bags & Boots!!

I had a shoes store that I always liked....no...maybe I should say a boots store. It was a store that I came across when I was still quite new to SL and since then had gone back once in a while to check out new items. This is exactly what I did the other day. No notices or information of a new release of any kind but I just decided to check the place out.

AND.....guess what I found!
I collection of seven bright coloured boots, all with matching coloured shoulder bags!!
And the bags looked great too! Well, of course, the boots were great too but after all, boots was this place's strength. But bags too?

They looked awesome! Not just the details but the shape and size was just right for avatars to carry with short straps so the bag part snuggled right underneath your arm. It had bag animations too so the hand will bend as if you were hold these types of shoulder bags in RL. I stood there for a LONG time, wondering which colour I should get, trying to remember all the outfits I have that I might want to use this bag with. "Black is the most versatile....but wait a minute....with all these colours, black? No.....that's too boring. Oooooooh pink! I LOVE dark pink.....no wait a minute....that won't be versatile enough....then....cream???" My brain cells were seriously being over-worked as I stood there thinking which one I should get.

Finally, I said to myself. "Oh damn. I'll be coming back here anyway every time I wanted another colour to match my outfit. I might as well get them all in a fatpack!" I was so pleased with this decision......until, I saw that there were no fatpacks! I frantically looked all over the place, too sorry to throw my hard made decision out of the window. Still no fatpacks. So I decided to write a notecard to the designer. :P

The next day, Satomi Masukami, designer for "Fussy", sent back my notecard with a simple response. "All set. :-)" That was all I needed to know. I tp'd right away and before I could change my mind and think twice about buying a fatpack, I had already clicked on the fatpack to "buy." YAY! I got two sets for free buying seven colours for a price of five!! I was soooooooo happy.

And off I went for a shoot. I decided to match up a "League" Leather Jacket that comes in three length. The one I am wearing in the pics is the middle length. The short one is VERY short and the long one goes down to just above your belly button. I also wore this cute shorts I found in "League" too. In fact, the jacket was given to me to wear for a show I will be walking in very soon (Feb. 7!!), but I tp'd to the store and found this pair of shorts. It has a micro mini skirt and this shorts in the set but I fell in love with the angel wings printed on my behind. :P Ok, ok, maybe I'm the only one that thought my "behind" looked cute, but that's actually how I felt when I wore this.

I also matched a casual necklace and earrings from "Yukirei Accessories." This is a Japanese store and I must say, I love the details that Japanese jewelry creators have especially on items such as these. And for the amount of work put into them, they are usually very reasonably priced.

Oh I forgot to mention that the boots and bags come in black, brown, blue, pink, purple, cream and red. Seven in all. And the one I am showing you here is the pink one.

Leather Jacket: League, Belted Leather Jacket (black)
Short pants: League, Wild Angel Booty Set-Black (shorts)
Boots & Bags: Fussy, Fussy Boots & Hand bag (pink)
Socks: Shop Seu, Kushukushu Kutsushita (black)

A Cool Casual Style from "Sweetest Goodbye"

"Sweetest Goodbye" is a store that you MUST visit if you're looking for a cool casual style. The texture designer Morphine Janick uses on her outfits are stunning and her styles are cool as well as sweet.

The short (in fact VERY short) sweater I am wearing here is a new release called "Desire" and although I have worn it here without wearing anything under it, you can also wear it in combination with shirts underneath. The amazing thing is.......this sweater is only comprised of three prim parts and no clothing layer! So it will be easy to match anything you might have in what ever clothing layer it comes in.

I initially took these pics for a magazine article I was writing but decided that I will wear a shirt layer myself for the magazine. So I decided to use these pics here as I usually refrain from using any pics I have for magazines before they are published.

The micro mini skirt worn here can be worn without the pantie showing. In the set you have a pants layer with the pantie showing as well as one that is only the skirt and the pantie is also included as a separate underpants layer as well for easier styling. Different colour skirts will all have this underpants layers that come in fun colours. They are all well thought out to give that fun look with contrasting colours.

The ankle boots worn here is also from Sweetest Goodbye as well as the skin. The boots, as you can see in the close up pic, has a great deal of details and comes in 8 stunning colour combinations. A really fun piece to match with any fun casual style.

The only different brands here are the stockings and bracelet, but the stocking was such a great match in colour and the bracelet I added to avoid being too "pink."

"Sweetest Goodbye" also has some cool men's items as well. A great place for high quality casual wear!!

Sweater: Sweetest Goodbye, Desire (gray)
Micro Mini Skirt: Sweetest Goodbye, Tik Tak (gray)
Stockings: Alchemy, Rainbow Stockings (hot pink)
Bracelet: Swallowtail, Volume Bracelet (green)
Ankle Boots: Sweetest Goodbye, Wonder Bird (gray)
Hair: Discord, Garou (black)
Skin: Sweetest Goodbye, Sweet Skin, Biscuit 09 Reflet
