Spring Flowers Make Me Smile

GlamDreamsBack_002

Spring is my favorite time of year. I love the bright floral patterns and colors, both around my home and in my fashion. It is a bright pick-me-up after the long days of winter. So when designers come out with the spring fashions, I smile. Today I have for you the newest release from Glam Dreams, the “Susan flowers” dress in Blue Flowers. This dress has long sleeves, and a high neckline to ward off those last chilly mornings and evenings while ushering in spring with a mini-skirt and eye-catching floral designed textures. The back of the dress has a half-moon cut-out and a small key-hole cutout between the shoulder blades. Fun! It works wonderfully with the mesh bodies available here in SL as well. I’ve chosen to pair it with the new updated SLINK physique out this past week. The “Susan Flowers” dress is perfect for an early jump on spring and is available in 6 different color combinations, one of which is sure to be perfect for you. Find it at the Glam Dreams Mainstore now.

Sharp Lines and Polka Dots from Lybra

Snapshot_001

Spring is upon us, and many of the designers are launching their spring lines. Lybra this month has released over 30 new gowns in a variety of colors and textures, including new versions of some very popular old favorites. Come and visit the mainstore in the new-releases room at the back of the store near the staircase. You will be amazed at all of the new choices there are. Today I have one called “Chevia” for you. A deep-v cut bodice is trimmed in a bright red drawing attention to that beautiful midsection. The mermaid style gown hugs those curves and then flares out into a full semi-sheer skirt filled with white polka-dots. Fun and stylish with clean modern lines and all the 2015 style factors you expect from Lybra. This gown also comes in a pink and black version as well, all at the mainstore.

Time and Time Again….

KatJewelryClose_004

Time and time again we come back to true romance and visions of love this Valentine’s Season. The lovely female shape, the curves, the open skin, and all the fine silks and jewels that adorn that shape create the vision of romance that we long for. When that look comes together, the light of romance shines brightly in the eyes of the special someone. Today’s I’ve put together a look with the help of PurpleMoon and Moondance Boutique. The beautiful gown in magenta silk with a cream bodice is the “Sophia” gown, the February Group gift from PurpleMoon. It comes with an optional sheer, cream scarf not shown as well. The jewelry set from Moondance Boutique, “Cinnie” has the perfect draped back set for any scoop-back gown. This part of the necklace has four draped chains with optional gems that are texture change via hud. The front has a thin chain paired with a thicker chain adorned with gems all of which are also texture change via HUD. The included bracelets wrap around the wrist and have chains and gems down to the attached diamond ring. Drop earrings complete the set. Find this set exclusively at Rue A La Page’s Event @ 1st through February 25th.

Showcase a new look

Snapshot_011

A new month is already here, and that means new rounds of the monthly events like Designer Showcase. This great monthly shopping event features fantastic, top designers at reasonable, rock bottom prices. You can easily put together an ensemble for under 500L at this event, many times even less than that. This month I’ve chosen to feature the new “Katherine” gown from Lybra that is available at event. This strapless gown has a distressed, white with grey pattern in a mermaid style gown that flairs at the floor. Laces up the back give it corset styling for elegance and femininity. To it I’ve added the “Julietta” Heels from DE. Boutique, and the “Regan” nails from Moondance Boutique for SLINK nails in Garnet. Complete styling notes below.

DE. Boutique Style at a great value

Snapshot_007

Today I had the pleasure of walking in the first fashion show for DE. Boutique by Deborah Vos. This new designer releases 10 – 16 new fashion forward designs each week from casual to formal and even has shoes for SLINK high feet. The styles are always designed with RL fashion trends in mind and are not only fashionable, but are also reasonably priced with SL consumers in mind. The turnout at the show today was fantastic! Such great support for this new designer and we love to see that, especially when they make these quality items. The vendors from today’s show will be left out at the runway until Monday, to allow those that were not able to attend a chance to get there and pick up their favorites including a show exclusive that will not be at the mainstore. 50% of all sales are supporting the work of Models Giving Back as they raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. So head over to the runway at Rue A La Page and pick up your favorites and some shoes today and support this very worthy cause.

In this Blog post I’m wearing the final gown of today’s show – the Luxe Devotion Gown. This beautiful gown has an asymmetric shoulder line, with a peplum top over a mermaid style skirt that flares gently at the feet. The black fabric has a white and gold floral pattern throughout. I noticed that on high graphics when I tried to introduce shadows into my windlight, the dress actually changed colors to a shiny purple, which windlight and high graphics settings is known to do. While most of us do not walk around on high graphics due to lag, I thought it might be fun just to post the lovely color it appeared for me in case you may want that variety. Happy Weekend and Happy Shopping my friends.
