new releases


Even though it is a virtual fantasy world, so much of Second Life mirrors real life.  The constant need a woman has for new gowns is one of them.  Just as in real life, a woman doesn’t want to be seen wearing that same dress she wore to the last gala event.  She needs something new, and something no one else is wearing.  Considering that most people probably attend more events in Second Life than their real lives, the need for new gowns is even greater.  Luckily for all of us, there is no shortage of designers of fabulous gowns here.  My Precious by Agnes Finney is one of the many shops in Second Life that offers a large selection of gowns and continually releases new items to help keep our wardrobes fresh.  Agnes’ latest designs include a dress called Snow Butterfly Queen, pictured below.

This dress is a mermaid style that is perfect for showing off those curves you’ve spent hours on perfecting.  The bodice is a sleeveless, closed halter style that helps to keep the silhouette slim and seductive.  This gown is textured with a lovely light blue and white embroidered pattern that seems to shimmer as it moves.  The prim pleats at the bas of the skirt blend well in both color and pattern.  The color and cut of this gown are wonderful for making that head turning entrance.  But as is often said, a girl needs to be as memorable when leaving a room as when entering.  This should always be considered when choosing a gown and a rear view of Snow Butterfly Queen, below, shows that this one fits the bill.

Just because it’s getting colder outside, doesn’t mean that you can’t continue to look hot. Keeping this in mind, I did a little shopping for a sexy fall look and this is what I came up with.

There really  are not many things that look hotter than leather and this lovely ensemble proves it. The Black leather jacket is a new release from COCO and features amazing detail and sleek lines that give it a tailored fashion forward look. The top, from Plastik, is actually the top of a mini dress called Shredder and provides just enough edge to make this ensemble perfect for clubwear.

This casual look, above, combines the Gilet dress in metallic blue with the Tristin blouse in darkrose.  This dress, shown with the flexi A-line skirt option, can also be worn with a non-flex pencil skirt of the same length.  The Tristin blouse features semitransparent wrist cuffs and multiple layers.  Both the dress and blouse are wonderfully textured for realism.  The Gilet dress is also available in black, bordeaux, lilac and moss while the Tristin blouse also comes in beige, blue, light blue, ocean and red.  For a more daring look the dress can be worn alone with the wide shoulder straps offering just enough coverage.  Also worn for this photo is C’est si bon hair with hat from Vanity Hair and a Donnarama Gloss peach skin with make up 4 BK from Baiastice.

For people who are not familiar with SF Design by Swaffette Firefly, you can find clothes from classic to sexy, from formal to casual and for man and woman and you will even find matching shoes in her shoe collection!

As present I received the sf design anniversary ballgown and for Kafee the sf design anniversary tux – sage. A perfect combination together, it made us want to go to a party and have a dance. What I like about the dress is the bustier with the lace trim. It gives you a much better decollete and nice detail, at the back it has nice diamond studs, very sexy! The resize menu takes care of the perfect size for you. The tux has a classical design, but made perfect with all the extra prims like the shoulder parts, sleeves for the arm and  prim for the lower part of the jacket. Also the pant has leg prims. It gives the tux so much more swing and it makes it less stiff. And good news, both outfits have matching shoes included. Not shoes you will only wear with this and never anymore, no, good quality shoes you will find another matching outfit for. This gown and tux will be available from this sunday on at SF Design.

Swaffette, congratulations and wish you at least another 5 years with great designs, keep up the good work!

Neferia Abel is a well-known Second Life designer.  Her Ivalde store has been an important destination for lovers of retro, vintage and period designs for a long time.  But Neferia has always done current fashion as well.  Despite this, her success in the vintage areas has caused many to think of her and Ivalde as purely vintage fashions.  In order to combat this misconception, several months ago, Neferia decided to release her new modern clothing lines under a new name, L’Abel.  She is currently in the process of releasing her latest Autumn collection, several of which are presented below.  The L’Abel line of clothes is chic and sophisticated with clean lines and figure-flattering silhouettes.  This latest collection is wonderfully constructed with very detailed textures that are realistically highlighted.

Below are pictured five outfits from this collection.  The first form the left is the Vivvike  black glitter set.  the high waisted knee-length skirt is made of a beautiful sequined fabric.  The bodice is a shiny black satin with sulpted puff sleeves.  The scuplted black satin scarf is included.

Next is the gorgeouos black and gold Mellie gold, a short cocltail dress with hem of the multi-tiered skirt above the knee.  the texture is a nice organic brocade of golden leaves on black.  the shoulder cuffs are sculpted prims and the black satin gloves are included.

In the middle is the all black Arja, which combines a ruched satin bodice with a delicate tafetta knee-length skirt. the collar and shoulder cuffs are luxurious fur and black satin gloves are included.
