How many of us have put on the “perfect dress” and then spent the next 20 minutes rummaging through  inventory, looking for jewelry that will complete the look?  I have some great jewelry but of course not everything I have is  going to match my ever growing wardrobe.  I guess it’s that time again… TIME TO SHOP!

Applonia Criss of CHANTKARE has been designing clothing in Second Life for less than a year and she has come a long way in such a short span of time.  As a designer, she brings us “modern hip” creations, fulfulling our cravings as fahionistas to stand out… to be one of a kind.  Her existing jewelery line is ever expanding and up-to-date with the season and trends, complimenting her clothing.  She makes pieces that work together to create a total image and balance what you are wearing.  Applonia’s designs will accomodate any one of your moods or tastes… from simply classy to edgy elegance.

The LONGLACE DAY DRESS is simply adorable!  The moment I put it on, I just knew that I was going to get a lot of use out of this dress.  This is the perfect dress for all occassions.  The lace detail is wonderful… the same texture is carried out through the entire dress and I like the way the bodice is sheer but not too sheer.  The skirt moves beautifully beacuse the underskirt is in two parts, each part moving independantly of the other.

 The SPRING BOUQUET NECKLACE AND EARRINGS are the perfect accessories for the LONGLACE DAY DRESS or any other outfit that need a little  “POP”.  The blossoms and bow in this set are in enamel and gives it the glossy sleek shine.  I love that Applonia made the earrings using largers blooms like you see in the necklace.  Anything smaller would have been lost and overlooked.  Making them into drop earrings give them a little sway as you turn your head.

The texture on the WOOD SILK DRESS is sooo luxurious.  The brown silk fabric with gold designs makes this an opulent creation, worth it’s weight in gold.  This timeless dress paired with brown fishnet stockings gives it a little edge… another must have.

Are you ready for this?  The SPRING NEWSY COCKTAIL DRESS… look very closely at the fabric.  It’s newsprint!  Can you imagine?  The crinkled newsprint used in combination with the pink taffeta gives this demure drop waist cocktail dress an urban feel.  The chiffon shawl, red heart broche and simple pave diamond stud earrings are the only accessories this dress needs.  Everyones eyes will focus on the unique choice of texture.  You will surely be the talk of the town in this dress.
