If your wardrobe is in need of some color, a visit to The Graceful Lily should be considered.  Whether you’re looking for formal, casual or club wear, Talia Lefavre brings her unique use of vibrant colors and intricate patterns to each style.  Talia is also an artist, you can see some of her works displayed at her store, and that aspect of her shows in her design work.  It’s as if she is creating a work of art with the body as the canvas and the clothing being the medium.

This first sample of her work, above, is a combination of the Egyptian Top in Orange and Blue Quilted Pants sold separately.  Aside from the top being a vivid and saturated hue, it is made more interesting by the stylized cutout of Egyptian style motifs.  The wave-like pattern of the pants offers a nice contrast to the design of the top.  The prim cuffs and thigh buckle add some attitude to this colorful ensemble.  The top is also available in red, coffee and black, while the pants come in green and tan in addition to the blue seen here.  This look is completed with Stiletto Moody Bitch Booties.  Hair is GIRLO from ::69:: in Charcoal and the skin is Baiastice_D.

Hello everybody – yes you heard that, autumn has arrived and lots of new hot stuff has been released lately. Autumn is probably the best time of year for me because I can mix and match outfits – a mix of old and new. Like in RL, you mix old and new together to get a look – very few people would wear brand new stuff from top to toe – most of us like to mix favorite clothes with new ones. I am wearing outfits from great SL designer branches such as Bijou, Bianca Foulon and Baiastice to mention a few and these can be used for any occasion. Pictures were taken in Best of SL Boulevard, Aspire Isle and Trilogy Fashion Alley where you also will find a lots of good quality clothes, shoes and hair.

In the picture below, I am wearing hair called Kaori chocolate, from Exile or at Mimi´s choice as well. My jacket with sweater is Bickstreet from Bijou as a part of the whole set. The black leather belt is from Maitreya and my pants are called Boom Boom in wine/red color from Sweetest Goodbye. The gloves from LeeZu Baxter Designs are called Nif Nif gloves and the ever-so funky boots are called PW Succio but unfortunately the landmark isn’t available at the moment. The earrings are the glam earrings from Creamshop.

Two days ago I visited BAIASTICE to see Sissy Pessoa’s latest releases. Once there, I saw the two Autumn Winter releases and attempted to buy them. To my suprise, I was unable to; instead it gave me a landmark to the Black Swan sim. I was confused but thought “Well I love the outfits, so I will go and see what’s there”. Having never heard of it before I was also curious. After walking through the door I got a huge shock, I was expecting another clothes shop, but this looked like something I would see in a game like Tomb Raider. There was a huge axe swinging across the pathway and the pathway was uneven. I thought “Surely there aren’t any clothes here”, but as the scenery was so breathtaking I thought I would take the opportunity to attempt the assault course of different challenges. I eventually came across the area where the clothing was and was in awe at the great designs by various Second Life designers. After buying some of the clothes I thought as the sim was so amazing, it would be a fantastic idea to take some snapshots of me wearing the clothes that I had just purchased whilst still in the sim. I teleported home and opened the boxes and then headed back to the Black Swan sim. I hope you like the photographs. I tried to not only show the fantastic clothes, but to also show you some of my favourite areas in the Black Swan sim.
