“All women’s dresses are merely variations on the eternal struggle between the admitted desire to dress and the unadmitted desire to undress.” ~Lin Yu Tang

  One of the keys to being a successful Second Life model is to dare to be daring! My style typically leans to the more eclectic so Vita’s Boudoir is one of my fave places to shop. Whether I am wearing an outfit “as boxed” like this wonderful creation “Kiss Me At Midnight” or by mixing and matching as I did in the Miss Virtual World Halloween show, I find all of Vita Dubrovna and Precious Restless’s creations gorgeous, fun to mix and match with and perfection all by themselves. Kiss me at Midnight is actually a latex pantsuit, ruffled and feminized with the addition of beautiful black feathers and is all out sexy with its peekaboo belly area and get out, its cut way down to there back. I love this design, it’s playful to wear, elegant in shape and stunning perfection for any of your more avant garde happenings. Have fun, explore and enjoy! I know you will find something perfectly playful at Vita’s.... read more

A dress makes no sense unless it inspires men to want to take it off you. ~Françoise Sagan

What can I say? I just love Purple Moon. Poulet is such a talented designer, (I absolutely Love her! she is so generous!) her work is flawless and what you see on the vendor is what you unwrap when you get home. This gown, Lourdes is available instore now and is perfect for a classy elegant evening. It’s a shimmery, form hugging satin with a gorgeous filmy mermaid line skirt. The collar is eye-catching with the mink trimmings and there is a matching mink handbag. Always a designer to finish all details, Poulet included chic above the elbows gloves and the most perfect on the shoulder floral piece to draw the eye to the wearer’s beautiful face! If you want to be the princess Diva of your next formal event, check out the many styles at Purple Moon! You can also pic up the gown I recently wore as my National Costume for the Miss Virtual World Contest (hair included!) Grab a taxi and head on over, I hope to see you there!   Taxi:... read more

Being born in a duck yard does not matter, if only you are hatched from a swan’s egg. ~ Hans Christian Anderson

Dark Swan, one of the hip new designs from Gizza!   I think most people know, I love to wear hip, young and playful designs. For groovy style, one of the best places to shop on the grid is Gizza. Giz Seorn always seems to design with a young Diva’s dream wardrobe in mind. My poor photography skills in no way do this Dark Swan outfit justice! The jeans are slim and formfitting with a dazzling diamond rhinestone belt that makes the outfit a rocker girls dream. Under the jacket is a sheer silk T-shirt with just a enough naughty to spice up any girls day. But the jacket! Soooooooo incredible! It is a creamy black in a short waist cut that is accentuated across one shoulder and the cuffs with soft and sexy feathers. Just so adorably hip and tres chic! Known for creating one of a kind outfits, Giz thoughtfully included a sportily feathered cap! It’s so fun to look so glamorous with minimum fuss! Check out the new items Giz just added to inventory for the New Year, I know you too will find something incredible to boost your own wardrobe! Have a glamorous New Year!  Taxi:  ... read more

Mandala~ You are an Earth Mother, Why wear Anything Else?

As the Chinese Proverb states, “Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without,” and at Mandala, all the stones are simply divine. I just love the works of Kikunosuke Eel. All the jewelry is beautifully crafted with the avatar in mind. Often in Second Life the jewelry gets lost it is so small. Not Mandala, each piece of jewelry is designed with visual perfection in mind. The stones and metals, are matched just perfectly and are classy to gaze upon. There are so many styles to choose from, I know you will find something simply unique for your day to day wear, all the way through to your more elegant evening soiree’s. And all pieces seem created with passionate earthiness in mind. So mix it up some, take off the old “boring” pieces and put on something with weight and substance, you will be so glad you did! Have a Happy New Year! <3  taxi:... read more

CELEBRATING ANNA SAPPHIRE MISS VIRTUAL WORLD 2012

On Tuesday afternoon, Kalli/Brandy and Mankind Tracer threw a fabulous welcome party for new Miss Virtual World 2012 Anna Sapphire at CLUB GRAFFITI in The Village. The uber fantastic Mankind Tracer (aka Seth Ragen) was on hand to perform a live set of fabulous all acoustic, unplugged rock tunes. The crowd at the event was a who’s who of fashionistas, designers and Miss & Mister Virtual World contestants past and present. Of course, I could not resist the opportunity to capture some shots of the gorgeous party guests, although Mr. Frolic Mills managed to escape before I could tackle him for a shot. Happily, I was able to catch the guest of the evening, Miss Virtual World 2012 Anna Sapphire — looking very punk fabulous — grooving to the awesome tunes, flanked by Mister Greece 2011 Daniele Eberhardt and supermodel Arialee Miles. Fashion styling for the party ranged from funky to formal, with some guests letting it all hang out while others opted for a more demure and elegant look. Miss Melusina Parkin, CEO of MEB Fashion, arrived ready to rock out and dance! Giz Seorn and Auster Elan of GizzA, who never leave the house without looking like movie stars, were a stunning pair in matching outfits in black from head to toe. I was especially loving that gorgeous, long, silver hair Giz was wearing… just delicious! Honestly, sometimes I think Giz should be walking on the Miss Virtual World stage rather than dressing the contestants for it! Of course, many Miss Virtual World 2012 contestants were on hand to help celebrate the welcome party for Anna Sapphire, including the always... read more

If we are to have magical bodies, we must have magical minds. ~ Wayne Dyer

I sometimes think the true magic of Christmas is somehow lost on children. Most children truly believe in the Spirit of Christmas and as such they possibly miss some of the magic around them. The infectious joy is a mundane normality to them and in their rush through the day, they enjoy the “things” they have received but forget to enjoy the feelings, the happy moments of life that is created. These get squirreled away for the bleak moments in adulthood when we have a vague memory and wish we could live those days just one more time.  I wish there was a way to bottle this magic for adulthood because with age we learn to better savor that which is good, and pure joy, well, that’s the most sublime feeling of all things. But, as adults, we have somehow lost this ability to cast away cares and implant the soft seeds of happiness that would fill our hearts with glad tidings and lightness. So, if I could make one grown up Christmas Wish it would be that we could implant in one another an entire field of seeds for this year. In our actions and deeds with one another, with our willingness to just laugh and smile, at ourselves and with others.  To not sit in judgment or condescension, but to embrace one another’s dreams, to hold each other’s hearts dear and enable, or further another’s goals above our own, because often, so very often actually, it’s the journey that is the highest award, not the winning of the contest. I hope you will think about this, ponder,... read more

“Fashion is a kind of communication. It’s a language without words. A great hat speaks for itself.” author unknown

  Let’s face it, to a lot of avatars, one of the most inspirational pieces in Second Life are hats! Hats, tall ones, frilly ones, artsy ones, and most of all day to day ones! Where I live in the “real world” there isn’t any need for hats, accept perhaps in the summer to ward against sunburn, so one of my greatest joys in Second Life is to don all these magnificent hats that I couldn’t possibly afford in real life. And with increased inworld interest in them, the truly talented milliners have made their presence known. One of these people is Petalos Clary of Baoba. Today, being in a post Miss Virtual World relaxation mood, I decided to keep it simple for a day of hanging with friends. I am wearing the Velvet Black cap, a sporty velvet “newsboy” cap, the black velvet accentuated with a light smattering of polka dots! To make the hat playfully glam, Baoba included two chicly gauzy hibiscus type flowers. The overall affect of added details in this hats appearance take it from run of the mill, to over the top in elegance. If you are looking for the defining accessory for whatever you are wearing a particular day, check out Baoba, I know you will find a hat that will make you Gorgeous! After all, saying you don’t look good in a hat is like saying you don’t look good in shoes! So I will leave you with a quote from noted author Felecia Mcmillan, author of Crowns-Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats, “We just know inside that we’re queens. And... read more

“Women dress alike all over the world: they dress to be annoying to other women” ~Elsa Schiaparelli

  Winter, what a wonderful time! Some think of Winter as the final gasp of breath, the demise of summer turn Fall. But in another view, it is a replenishing, a preparing of the soil for the Spring renewal that is to come! In a fashion sense, Winter is one of the most fun season of all to me! Go ahead! shoot me now! what can I say? I love furs! they are fluffy, pouffy, and downright soft and sexy! The best part about a Second Life, is you can wear them without harming a single animal! I am wearing one of the incredibly gorgeous offerings from Gabriel’s Winter Collection. All pieces of this are from the Megu leather collection. The mini-dress is from the White collection and the Fur Coat, tights and boots from the black collection. I partnered it up with a red belt from Lelutka and it’s an instant Tres Chic selection for your best of Second Life Winter events! I have to say, both collections do come with an adorable leather belt with an attached furry purse that is absolute perfection with the set, I only chose to wear the Lelutka to to add some color to the wintry photograph. Before you head out to snow ski or ice skate with friends and loved ones this holiday, stop by Gabriel and check out the many new winter styles available! I know you will find something you will absolutely love! I know I did!... read more

PurpleMoon ‘Nala’ MVW 2012 Evening Gown

As a contestant in Miss Virtual World 2012 I could have wished for nothing more than the honor of being chosen for the top five. Well, except for one thing. I dearly wish ALL the MVW contestants were lucky enough to receive each and every one of the custom MVW gowns as prizes, LOL! Seriously though, the national costumes and evening gowns created for the MVW contestants this year were truly spectacular and I wish I had the Lindens to own them all. I do plan on acquiring as many of them as possible! Of course, I had to start with my own lovely national costume sponsor PurpleMoon and pick up one of each of the four amazing custom creations Poulet Koenkamp made for MVW 2012 contestants this year. One of my very favorites of the whole evening gown competition was this gorgeous gown made for top twelve finalist Nala Kurka. This deliciously decadent, one-shoulder gown is richly detailed and sensously sexy while still maintaining a regla elegance. To offset the lovely asymetrical shoulders, I paired the gown with the ‘Fascination’ hair style from Osmose (formerly Plume). This style was custom created for MVW 2012 1st runner-up Rissa Friller for her evening gown look (different dress). I thought it looked just lovely paired with this gown as well.

“You got nothing to lose. You don’t lose when you lose fake friends.” ~ Joan Jett

I hope Nando will forgive me for being a little self-centered on this “day after” Miss Virtual World, but I plan to blog this incredible gown in a few days for Angel Dessous and for the first time, I want to be totally selfish and blog myself, MVW, and most of all, you! Don’t worry, I know, if you are going to prattle on about yourself you better make the words to the point and precisely short. Well as short as the person some friends accuse of writing a new edition of War and Peace every time she takes to the keyboard, can do. But here it goes. As you all may know, I didn’t win Miss Virtual World. Congrats Anna Sapphire, you are a beautiful person! And no, this is not a surprise to me, I was an underdog from the beginning. Sure, I am more disappointed about a non-top five finish than I thought I would be, but with some introspection, I have dusted off my big girl knickers and moved on. I know my limitiations, I am as gangly and gawky as a professional basketball player, and perhaps not as voluptuous as an MVW should be, I am also shorter than the average model, it’s not terribly noticeable, unless you are standing on the runway right next to someone a foot taller, of course. Also, my style does not tend to the current Euro Fashion glam styles, I prefer to steep my fashion in a more eclectic brew. I am not debasing the current styles, I do like them, after all they design them to appeal... read more
