Italian glamorous style

Original post @ Playing Paper Dolls.

One of the things I enjoy most is getting ready for a party. I can spend countless hours finding a perfect combination of dress, shoes accessories, hairstyle and of course makeup. 

MakeUp

But to be honest its really easy to look perfect when you can choose from the best brands on the grid. I shop a lot ( way too much) but I usually visit the same stores, I have a folder with Landmarks to my favourite brands, and other than events and interesting places I discover on the feeds, I always end up going to the same places over and over just because of their quality and most importantly because they fit my style. Thats the reason I love Baiastice, everything that Sissy Pessoa designs is pure glamour with a sleek style, beautiful patterns and an special eye for detail.
The Arcade - PILOT

When I saw the gatcha item from PILOT at The Arcade I knew instantly I needed that lovely Pisa Tower at home. I knew of someone else who would love it too *winks*. But I was lucky and on the second attempt I got the Rare item, the amazing cabinet with texture change … and I had to collect them ALL. I decided to take a raw shot from SL so you can truly appreciatte the attention to detail that Kaz Nayar has put on the design of these beautiful landmarks, they are absolutely amazing, each and every one of them. The only thing I am requesting is an spanish monument for the next round :) 

PILOT- Tower of Pisa Raw Shot


I still got some more items from The Arcade to show you. Ok…I still have A LOT!! and I am actually running out of time to showcase them all because at the end of the month they will be gone :( But in the first picture you can see a cute Vanity Case from House of Fox that includes make up props with different animations perfect for those vanity moments at home, I did have some small nail polishers, hair brushes and a few perfumes but I didn’t have makeup items with animations included and I really love them.



The complete collection is called “Runway Essentials” and it costs only 75L$ to play. The direct teleport to the House of Fox gatcha machine is here.

Cymande Haalan “Cymande”

2014 COC - Cymande Haalan

INSPIRATION: The challenge was from the Martin Margiela Spring 2014 collection, and I loved the fun colors, brightness of the patterns and textures.. This styling reminded me of the funky clothes that were worn in the 70′s! I loved them and I put together what i felt represented that. It was a fun tme to wear whatever your spirit wanted, testing your fashion limits-just being free with a slight edge.

For something different: I had to put velvet in the mix, largely because the 70′s had so much of that texture for the pants and tube top, not to mention the belly chain. I loved the jacket, with the different patterns as Martin Margiela had funky colors that made everything come alive, along with different mixtures of lengths in his design elements, I felt like a walking piece of abstract art, ready to hit the discos.

ElaraGloriana Scrabblebat “ElaraGloriana”

Colour of Couture 2014 - 1st Photo Challenge

I am proud to be representing my Lumbee heritage as a 2014 Colour of Couture Top Model Competition finalist. For our first photo challenge the finalists asked to interpret a look based on Maison Martin Margiela’s 2014 Spring Collection. (If you are interested, you can see our inspiration images here: http://www.arcstreet.com/article-maison-martin-margiela-paris-ha…; ). What struck me about the collection’s mixing and matching of textures and cuts was how easily it all blended with one another. What may have been very visually jarring to audiences in art and fashion more than a decade ago is now at the heart of our post modern aesthetic. Blending of cultural traditions is now commonplace in all realms of art and fashion is no exception to this. In my styling I tried to emulate some of the recurring motifs of the collection like the golden shoes and the variation of fabric draping, mixing loosely fitted pieces with very tailored cut ones. The lack of any identifying features of the models in our inspiration is something we were advised to ignore and were asked to show our faces. I decided to add more than hair on top of my head to add a little punk and panache to the outfit, highlighting an attitude that, to me, is at the core of this collection and that is fun and playfulness.

Eleseren Brianna “Eles”

COC  1st  Challenge - Maison Martin Inspiration - Eleseren Brianna

I loved the crazy but oh so clever mix of patterns and colours in this collection, and the adventurous mixing of boho with avante garde. The shapes are strong and deconstructed, and the use of colours in the fabric mixes and tattoos, together with the gold and metallic foils, the fringing and the beading make for a very rich effect.

I decided to focus mainly on the boho feel and pattern interplay in this styling, together with the deconstructed feel of this Maison Martin collection designs. For me it was important to find a harmonising and rich interplay of patterns in the pieces I used. My finished styling harmonised colours within an earth/gold/olive range with brighter and more vivid highlights of peacock blue. I suggested the fringing around the face by using Indian and gypsy styled jewellery pieces, which also worked with the boho feeling running through the Maison Martin collection. Separated sleeves and an asymmetric/tied styling to the pieces was inspired by the avante/deconsructed feel which is also in the collection. Finally I brought hints of gold into my makeup, to work with the gold tones and metallic gold ankle boots in the overall styling

Flidais Etchegaray “Fly”

Colour of Couture Photo Challenge #1

Inspired by the Maison Martin Margiela – Haute Couture spring 2014 “Artisanal” collection. This inventive collection literally looked like a “collection” of scraps of different luxurious textiles, jewels, and tapestries all pieced together in Margiela’s unique creations. I was inspired by a particular jacket in the collection which appeared to be made out of none other than foil. This top from .Shi, with it’s asymmetric cut and belted waist, was just the design I was looking for. The pants from Solidea Folies, came close to a pair worn with a particular Margiela design which exuded an almost gypsy/ circus like flair. I wanted to give my styling an almost industrial edge, so kept the colors metallic down to the chunky jewelery by Amorous. To add a splash of color, and as a nod to the full masks worn by the models in Margiela’s runway show, I accented my styling with Solidea Folies “Conceptual” half mask in red. Style inspiration can be found here:

Kestrel Sorrowsong “Kes”

Inspiration – Maison Martin Margiela’s Artisanal Haute Couture, Spring-Summer 2014

Deconstruction is a term that is broadly used to describe a rebellion against traditional art forms. In fashion, the use of stylistic elements such as vintage and found materials, raw edges, revealed linings, and exposed seams on works that seem to be unfinished, recycled, or coming apart are signifiers of the deconstructed look. Deconstruction is a key element in Martin Margiela’s work. Margiela uses this technique to focus attention away from the designer as fashion icon and back onto the construction techniques and designs of the fashions themselves. I based my styling for this challenge on elements from three designs from Margiela’s Spring-Summer 2014 Artisanal Collection.

I chose Vero Modero’s Roman Top to bring an element of Passage #3: Robe Bustier into my look. Vero’s Roman Skirt in Glitter Beads reminds me of the materials Margiela used for the silvery jacket seen in Passage # 13: Ensemble. It also maintains the pencil skirt lines of the skirt in Passage #3. I added LaGyo’s Leather Shoulder Wrap because it reminded me of the vintage lap blanket used as a drape or scarf in Passage #18: Robe Du Soir. To finish the look, I added ASS’s Drama Shadow, BSD’s Surreal shoes, and constructed a tie belt from pieces of LD Major’s and League’s outfits. The eye shadow acknowledges Margiela’s use of masks on his models. The shoes acknowledge both the gold footwear he used in this body of work and Margiela’s use of scavenged and found materials. The tie belt reflects his use of string/ribbon belts, a subtle element in this collection that gives the garments the appearance of having been made from repurposed materials whose construction is fragile and that they might easily come apart.

The theme of this challenge was to create a look that was funky and inspirational.

The main element that i choose to center this outfit around butterflies. These insects are one of the symbols of love and joy. Butterflies also bring a message, but just for me. It’s my belief that my maternal grandmother sends a butterfly to remind me that she’s always with me, even-though she’s in another realm.

The baggy pants and bright bright colors of the blazer, headpiece and shoes, gives this look an edgy feel.

Here is a list of everything that was used to create this outfit:

Skin: LAQ: Elena in Nougat

Eyes: Amacci: Emerald Eyes – 9

Eyelashes: Lelutka: MM-Catwalk Eyelashes

Nails: Pixel Mode: *[PM] Sculpted Nail V2 – Platinum Edition V2 : Gloss

Jacket: TOPAZIA: Strong blazer in butterfly

Pants: .::[NerdMonkey*Clothes]: [Horse pants 10]::

Headpiece: TOPAZIA: the butterflies anderian in pink

Lipstick: Madrid Solo: Soft Kisses 04

Eyeshadow: *Shack*: Eye Shadow in pink

Shoes: Angel Alphaville 72.7.2: Pink

Silly Avro “Prisilla”

Colour of Couture ~ 1st Photo Challenge ~ Prisilla S. Avro (far)

Inspired by the “inventive, creative and quirky” Maison Martin Margiela Paris Haute Couture Spring Collection 2014. Margiela’s collection was quite a treat for the eye in all of its contradictions. I spent quite a while looking at the photographs of this collection, as well as the live runway video of it, and did my best to absorb the bold quirkiness of it all. I was immediately attracted by the tattoo top and knew it had to be in my recreation. The over sized jacket was quite the curiosity as well so a quirky coat by .SHI appeared in my rendition. The masks on the models were intriguing, and while we were not to obscure our faces, I had to bring in a bit of the mask effect with the piece from LaGyo. On the whole I found the collection daring and I attempted to bring that factor into my look with wearing the tattoos from Identity. There were also several short dresses in the collection, and I chose to represent that with these sexy lil tweed shorts from Marshmallows. On the whole I enjoyed the challenge and the creative license it allowed me.

Solde Rothmanay “Solde”

INSPIRATION:
When I first looked at the provided link, I thought of Carnivale, or something along the line of Mardi Gras. On a deeper level I broke it down further to the use of geometric designs, popping colors and combining different artistic elements.

I decided to use the corset all because of the fabric texture. The face on the front is what I wanted to focus on because it reminded me of the Queen of Hearts from a story that I read. From that texture, I included the popping red and blues, adding the geometric element with the striped pants. The skirt was my own addition just to give it a touch of femininity.

Tiviyah “Tivi”

Colour of Coutre Style Challenge #1 - Tiviyah

Style Challenge #1: Designer Inspiration (Maison Martin Margiela)
http://www.arcstreet.com/article-maison-martin-margiela-paris-ha…;

I definitely got a Boho feel out of a lot of the patterns that were used and some of the silhouettes… but one of the things the website said that really stuck out to me as unique about this collection was that it was meant to explore the mind of a ‘collector’… so I focused on things that individuals might collect. Some collect flowers and press them in books, others collect coins (my bracelets are made of coins), and others collect clocks/watches/pocket watches. So, draped from the gown are small pocketwatches meant to look like they are hung from the ruffles.

I have to thank the amazing Ashia Denimore for this photo!

Zionp “Zion”

Inspired by the Maison Martin Margiela Paris Haute Couture Spring Collection 2014.
The styling is inspired from my favourite look which consisted of a top that looked like a body tattoo, but it is also based on the overall feel of the collection. The collection was so creative, I loved the the emphasis on fabric and the way the fabric was draped and I particularly loved the prints and mixture of different prints together .

Top 2: .shi Chinoi Wrap Top
Bottom : Fanatik Printed Leggings in Hena

Zoomy Bluebird “Zoomy”

COC Photo Challenge #1

Stripes with flowers. Gold metal twill alongside jewels and trinkets. Silk satin, mirrors, stones, ceramic, glass tube beads….all of this and more makes up Maison Martin Mariela’s latest called, “Artisanal.”

In this Haute Couture Spring 2014 Collection, Maison is a natural at combining different patterned fabrics giving them complete symmetry. It is not an easy task and for that he has my true admiration.

Inspired, I gave it a go by pairing a bold printed overcoat with glitter striped pants and a flowered bodysuit. I loved the look of his Embroidered “Clin d’oeil” Evening Gloves (which took 18 hours to make, by the way), but wasn’t satisfied with how anything with similar style transferred over inworld. So, I simulated the look with my own hair — Bushy and stringy without all the fuss. Lastly, I adorned my feet with gold ankle boots and with a touch of “Zoom Zoom” I wrapped a bold orange scarf around my neck bringing out that same color in the coat.

Maison Martin is a great way to begin Colour of Couture and I, for one, cannot wait until the next challenge!

Four Prim Perfect talks today at the SL11B Community Celebrations: style, sound, art – and mer!

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

Today, Saturday 28th January, we are delighted to have four fantastic interviews with leading Second Life  residents with two sessions of Meet the Designer, then Meet the Artist and then Meet the Community Talks in the Auditorium on SL11B Fascinate (either Stage 1 or Stage 2).

And another one not to be missed today is Carl Metropolitan’s talk at 3pm on Remaking the Second Life new user experience.

Meet the Designers

Meet the Designers

First of all, at a special time of 9am SLT on Stage 2, Saffia will be talking to two of Second Life’s leading Home and Furniture designers – Colleen Desmoulins of The Loft, and Froukje Hoorenbeeke of Dutchie about their work, their plans and their feelings about the announcement of the planned new generation of Second Life.

Meet the (Sound) Designer

Meet the (Sound) Designer

Next, at 2pm SLT on Stage 2, there will be a slightly different type of design to discuss.  Lorin Tone, sound designer extraordinaire, will be talking to Saffia about his work and Second Life sound – and it’s entitled “A Silent World: Rant, Lecture and Discussion”.

Meet the Artist

Meet the Artist

Then (after Carl Metropolitan’s talk at 3pm on Remaking the Second Life new user experience), at 4pm SLT on Stage 2, Taralyn Gravois will be talking to the artist Van Caerndow about how is real life art has carried over into sales in Second Life – and vice versa.

Meet the Community

Meet the Community

And finally, at 5pm SLT on Stage 2, Saffia Widdershins will be talking to Grace Wrigglesworth (and possibly some pirates too!) about the Safe Waters Foundation and life the the Fanci’s Deep – as a mer or as a pirate!

How do I find out more?
