Summery Look, Jhao’s @ Totem Surf Wear

People… I was in a store called Totem Surf Wear, which has great Brazilian summer clothing. The owner of the store, Zeus Fride, is a good friend. He loves summer and Brazilian beaches, and he creates stylish clothing perfect for this. Here are a few of his new releases. Here I am wearing a shirt made of a thin fabric, very soft, and the texture is beautiful. I like the style of the buttons matching the color of the shirt. The open V-neck is perfect for the hot weather. Summer brings out sexuality in us and the clothes we wear. Women look for sheer fabrics, and men also opt for more daring clothes, such as those which bare more of the chest. Many designers have launched this style of shirt, putting special focus on the eroticism of the male chest. Totem SurfWear has a lot of clothing in this style. The shorts in jeans create a stripped look for a summer in the metropole, and the low shoes and complete the look, simple and stylish. Skin – Belleza- Johan Hair – TRUTH Hair – Zach – dark browns Sweater – Totem SurfWear – Transport Cardigan Pants – Totem SurfWear – WalkShort – Loose Change Shoes – hoorenbeek – SlipOn – Plain Colors In this look, very summery, I’m wearing the Totem Surf Wear trousers with texture in chess, which I particularly love. The belt-shaped cord is a very interesting tropical touch in the piece. I use a Belleza skin that I love. (Belleza is giving this skin to the Belleza group for a special price; anyone interested in the... read more

Hooray! Chloë Jeweled Flowered Flats AvailableToday

When I posted a review of some of the new jewelry releases at Chloë this past May, I also showed a “teaser” pic of Chloë owner and designer Kieran Debevec’s upcoming foray into shoes. From that moment on, Kieran tells me she was flooded with IMs from shoe lovers asking when the new Jeweled Flowered Flats would be available. Naturally, Kieran was delighted, and the wonderful response encouraged her to create the best possible range of shoe color options along with her incredible Primary and Secondary gem colors HUD. There are 19 shoe colors and over 150 gem colors to choose from! These charming flats will look great with so many of your outfits, from casual to evening wear. They’re copy-permed, so you can place a copy of a particular base color into an outfit folder, then set the gem colors to match the outfit, for a total customized ensemble. And today, the Chloë Jeweled Flowered Flats are released! Drop by the Chloë store today to try the demos and buy your favorite color, a mini-pack, or the entire fat pack.

Hats & Shoes:or – More accessories

Shoes! What woman doesn’t love them, especially if they have cute toes.  Combine the right shoes and hat, and you change the look of an outfit instantly. BG Planer of B&G has joined the ever increasing numbers of shoe designers to produce a line of high heeled sandals with cute feet. I was a little disappointed to find they were no copy – not much fun for models making up folders – but, after speaking to BG she agreed to put vendors in the store that gave the option of either transfer or copy. Yay! Thanks BG Her sandals are sexy and stylish and come in some very pretty as well as useful colours. Bows and flowers make these 2 styles [Melody in Platinum & Amanda in Pink (Rosa) ] perfect for elegant gowns, and those filmy summer dresses.  And the strappy sandal [Selena in Camel] has a gladiatorial look to it, great for shorts, bikinis, and short skirts to show off a long leg and a slim ankle.   One of my all time favourite hats is this cute little number from Kavar Cleanslate of Exile. It’s called Maureen and comes with it’s own hair (soooooo convenient). The delicate veil can be made invisible with a simple click, and the colour is also changeable. What more could a girl ask for The other two also come with their own hair (I’ll look at hats minus hair at another time).  I like the cheeky look of Amerie’s hat. Like a cross between a PD and (in Australia at least) a ‘bookie’ – the guys who take bets at the... read more

Mannequins Traveling SL

When Thess Writer decided to unleash her mannequins on the grid, she must have had an idea that the idea would be well received by artists, but no one could have imagined the diverse images those artists would create with her setups. Different arrangements of the mannequins were placed on the Unintended Water sim, Poetik Velvets sim and Chapeau Tres Mignon. Landmarks and SLURLs were provided to direct Second Life photographers and artists to the different locales and magic occured. While the setups were the same for each artist, depending on location, the works derived from Thess’s concepts showcase how the artists saw them differently. On June 12th at 9:00 PM SLT, Thess is holding an expo opening party at Unintended Water, where several works created from this amazing concept will be showcased. The gallery, built by Cyro Spyker, consists of three rooms, one for pieces from Poetik Velvet, one for Unintended Water works and one for creations from Chapeau Tres Mignon. The build was designed to emphasize the diverse creative visions of the artist by placing shots of the same scene together. The Mannequins Traveling SL exhibit is an exciting culmination of a concept that has become virtual reality over the past several... read more

New Jeweled Shoes & More from Chloe Jewelry!

Don’t you just love shoes? I do, and so does Kieran Debevec, owner and designer of Chloë, my favorite Second Life jewelry store. She let me have a sneak peek at her first foray into shoes, so I’m letting you in on the cuteness! Chloë’s “Jeweled Flowered Flats” come with the unique Chloë Color Changing Pod, which allows you to select over 150 colors for the Primary and Secondary jewels on the shoes. Talk about custom matching to any outfit! The Chloë “Noel Pearl” necklace and earrings set was released last month, and it’s just beautiful. The set also comes with the Chloë Color Changing Pod, which means you can customize this set to match any outfit and go from elegant to wild in just 2 clicks. Kieran Debevec’s jewelry designs are very popular and well thought of, and it’s no surprise that similar designs often pop up from other brands after a Chloë release. As Kieran says, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?” She was particularly happy when her donation of 2 of her designs, one unique and one unreleased, raised L$26,000 at a recent auction for charity. Chloë is part of the Einstein Group. View, demo, and purchase these and the rest of her impressively stylish and well made jewelry designs at the store on the Elf Fala sim. Oh, and be on the lookout for a new release coming up. I’ve seen the prototype, and it is fabulous!... read more

Violet describes the enthusiasm of the DJs participating in the Carnival: “The DJs are really enthusiastic about it, they’re really the driving force behind it because they’re the ones here, providing music which is the base of it all, and it almost becomes like a competitive thing, they’re really proud when they bring in a lot of money during their time slot, so they are... read more

Talia’sStyle-Sod the Odds

Why “Sod the Odds”? You may well ask! Well firstly, “Bits and Pieces” or “Odds and Ends” has been done to death. Secondly, when I called my blog Talia’s StyleFile I hadn’t realised that Kay’s blog was called “Kay’s Style File” *sigh*. Yes, I know! But like most readers, I check out the pics first, then read the blog, and never look at the heading … consider my wrist slapped. Speaking of wrists … I love bracelets and bangles, but most of them remove prim nails. Wouldn’t you love to have some that didn’t? Well you can! Not only that……. How do you fancy striking, unusual, colour changing, scripted jewellery that is far from ordinary? Have you ever wanted something ‘out there’ to set off a special outfit? All this can be found at Tekeli-li! in the Hollow Earth [http://slurl.com/secondlife/Hollow%20Earth/70/210/2]. Tekelili Tantalus is the creator of these unusual and bold pieces, along with the crazy/wonderful hair I’m wearing in one of the pics. Ready for this? Of course you are. Tyr Rozenblum [Tyranny Designs] is the creator of the outrageous outfit. The skin is from Lion Skins Forbidden range,  and the hair  is Dacon – Tekeli-li. I couldn’t resist. Besides, a girl has to give in to the ‘dark side’ at least some of the time :). Circe is a complete outfit, recently released by Tekelili Tantalus and can be found instore now. I promised you bracelets and/or bangles. Well why be satisfied with just part of a set when you can have the whole lot? Kemet is one of my favourites because it meets so many needs at... read more
