In the world of fashion, people are always looking for new and fresh.  Often times it is found with the discovery of a new talented designer, which causes us to constantly search for unheralded names.   But the truly talented continue to turn out fresh ideas regularly.  In our quest for new we shouldn’t make the mistake of ignoring those we already know and one to whom we need always pay attention is Sissy Pessoa of Baiastice.  Sissy has been around the Second Life fashion scene for a number of years and over that time has been on of the leaders in creativity and talent.  Besides her constant innovations in clothing of many styles, she has also branched into other areas including skins, lingerie, shoes, lashes and nails.  Below are several outfits recently available and photographed at various locations around the Costa Rica Sims where a Baiastice store is also located.  All are shown with Baiastice skins as well.

This first couture ensemble, above, is the BlackAndrea dress, perfect for admiring the art works at the Criss Museum of Contemporary Art in Alajuela.  The strapless bodice and knee-length pencil skirt form a classy and feminine silhouette.  The hat adds a modern flair while the included gloves and stockings are keeping with the classic feel.  The skin here is Baiastice_D. Casting-Peach-make up 10 BK.  The look is completed with Laqroki Cutie hair in black, Stiletto Moody Pinups in Black Patent Python and Necklace No 128 [small] and Earrings No 127 in silver from Kraftika.

Since I was a very young girl I have always loved the elegance of vintage clothing. Neferia Abel, owner and designer of Ivalde Designs has been bringing that elegance into Second Life for awhile now. Neferia has truly set the bar high with the great attention to detail, lush beautiful textures of  clothing &  don’t get me started on the delicious skins. Knowing the quality of her work I got really excited when I found out through EFA’s Tiffany Dragonash that Neferia had decided to expand and work on new more modern designs perfect for every woman with a totally new brand, “L’Abel.  ” Slipping on these new masterpieces I am in awe!  They were everything I imagined and more, sexy, sophisticated, and just simple knock down beautiful. I got to chat with Neferia and she is a sweet person and I am so happy to have met her.

Temperance Moonites: What’s in store for L’Abel and is there anything exciting coming up you would like us to know about?

Neferia Abel: I have a few exciting projects in the works! I will be redesigning the store next week, giving it a more updated, fresh appearance. I’m also going to start designing more contemporary clothing, giving as much attention to design there as I do to my other lines.

RFyre - The Snow Queen
RFyre – The Snow Queen

 “I can give her no greater power than she has already,” said the woman; “don’t you see how strong that is? How men and animals are obliged to serve her, and how well she has got through the world, barefooted as she is. She cannot receive any power from me greater than she now has, which consists in her own purity and innocence of heart. If she cannot herself obtain access to the Snow Queen, and remove the glass fragments from little Kay, we can do nothing to help her……” ~Hans Christen Anderson, The Snow Queen

During one of the weeks in November, I was privileged to have been chosen as a runway model for JCNY’s Model Fest.  What a great experience it was.  During this time, the models that I met on the runway I found to be exceptional.  Everyone had a wide range of talents and abilities that they had put to work for themselves in Second Life.  One of the ladies that I met is named Bliss Beningborough, the owner/founder and designer of Bliss Beningborough Couture.

Bliss caught my eye on the runway, with some of the most beautiful and innovative gowns that she was wearing.  The quality was beautiful and the texture was flowing and smooth, with caring detail shown in each gown.  I am always on the look out for unique and quality driven lines of cloths.  So I happened to ask Bliss where she was purchasing her clothing and she happily told me that she is the designer and maker of most all that she wears.  I knew right then that I must check her line out more closely after the Model Fest and help promote her designs through this blog.  I know that we are all looking for the up and coming designers who have what it takes to become one of the leaders.  I feel that Bliss has this going and I can truly say that I love her cloths and how sexy and feminine I feel in them.  Thanks Bliss.

Bliss has currently opened three stores and I can tell you that I have visited each and there are always women in her shops searching for just the right outfit or gown for their needs.  Grab her cloths up while they are still so reasonably priced and before she hits the big time.  Because her talents are taking her to the top.
