Let’s face it!   Sunglasses are the embodiment of cool and make an immediate statement about who you you.  Looking for fun in shades this season?  Well, this season’s looks are all about making a statement.  We all know how to do that, right?

Skin:  Redgrave – Leticia Tan skin

Hair:  Truth – Tahlia 2 in platinum

Sunglasses:  Kalnins – Bravia v1.51

Sunglasses have taken their cue from runway and street fashion.  Retro looks like aviators and oversized “Jackie O” frames along with sleek, futuristic sheild shapes compliment what’s going on in fashion.  You may find that just like clothing, the same old fashion trends are popular again.  Retro looks are considered hip and are expected to generate a tremendous response from those who follow fashion.

Aviators… Shaped like a teardrop, metal-rimmed aviators have always made a comeback since World War II when pilots wore them.

DeLa

 

Don’t you just love it when you’re favorite fashion designer is talented enough to create almost everything you need to wear in Seond Life?  Sometimes you wonder why you shop anywhere else.  Kuranosuke Kamachi brings it all together at her mainstore… DeLa.  When you first walk in, you’ll find the shoes just calling your name… “buy me Kat… c’mon, you need another pair of shoes or two“.    Then after you buy a few pairs, you realize now you need a few outfits to match.  Okay… let’s go shopping!

Okay, I say this every year… I NEED A NEW BATHING SUIT!  Every season, designers find a way of making bathing suits look better an better.  The textures so much more life-like, the shadowing on the fabric, the detail in the knot of the pareo, each prim can be manipulated  for a better fit.  The “Margarita” Seablue bikini is exactly what I needed.  This bikini is tattoo friendly and comes in all layers.  There are prim bows and layer bows so you can wear it with or without the matching pareo. Kuranosuke Kamachi thought of everything.

Skin:  Redgrave – Leticia tan

Hair:  ETD – Nadia – blonde

Kal Rau

Gentlemen… I take my hat off to you (it’s a cute fushia leather hat from Maitreya… heehee).  I never really realized how limited you are when it comes to shopping for a wardrobe.  Men’s fashion has developed at a much slower pace than womenswear but there is a fair amount of quality clothing out there that folks may not be aware of.  There are good designers and then there are GREAT designers.  Kal Rau falls into GREAT!

Kal Rau knows what looks good on a man and designs a line of very easy going and sporty clothing.  The versatility is great… you can mix and match his designs and add a few accessories to boot.  The craftsmanship of the clothing is incredible and the textures are so real.  You walk away looking like a million bucks without spending it.

Clothing modeled by Brett Seetan

How many times have you walked into a clothing store and picked up some promotional (freebie) clothing just to get home, try it on and delete it?  I know I’ve done it so often I can’t keep track.  You would think you would learn by now, right?  But you just can’t pass up a freebie and I’m happy Brett didn’t either.  This is what freebies should look like.  The Kal Rau Sport Shorts and White Long Sleeve Promotional Shirt are perfect .

J’s

I never knew I had a toe fetish until I came across my first pair of open toe sandals with prim toes.  With the warm weather here, I’m pulling out all my open toe shoes! 

J’s has been coming out with quality prim toes for quite some time now and finally… flips flops.  These flips flops come with prim toes and feet and you can even opt to go barefoot.  No more looking down at your clubbed feet as you lounge around the pool or walk along the beach.  All of J’s prim toe are colorable via a drop down menu which is fairly easy to use and provide options for jewelry and nail color.
