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.

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.

DP Serendipity

Serendipity is the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely.

Well, that’s exactly what happened.  All I wanted was a great fitting white tee… wasn’t looking for anything else, just a white tee (I don’t think you can ever have enough of them).  I searched high and low and my feet were killing me but I just had to walk into one more store… DP Serendipity.  I took a deep breath and ventured in.  I was automatically drawn to the cute denim capris, then the button down henleys and the bra and panty sets.  The “Cut Sewn” tops right next to the lingerie sets caught my eye.  They match!   All the clothes looked so comfortable and soft, cute and casual.  Then I saw the dresses, perfect for the upcoming warm weather.  All in great colors and patterns.  My shopping list now went beyond the simple white tee.

Masuri Dryke of DP Serendipity from Tokyo, Japan is a designer that feels comfortable and casual clothing is essential.  Her casual clothing also sports just a touch of attitude.   Her Attitude Love T’ees were created to “express a girl’s confidence without being bitchy”.

Her latest release is the Leopard Line. She also mentioned that many of her older items have been reduced up to 50% off!!! Go there now!

A few days ago I decided to check out the Vanity Universe Glamour Expo.  These fairs are great places to see a large selection of designers in various categories.  This month, the Glamour Expo is showcasing Second Life’s fashion designers.  I saw most of the top and well-known names there, but as I had hoped, I also came across a few names I hadn’t been familiar with.  Of these new names, one really stood out to me.  Maybe it was the cute, feminine styles, or the vibrant colors and textures, or the suggestion of bygone days.  I suppose it was a combination of all these things that caught my eyes.  In any case, the designers name is pixivor Allen and her store is A La Folie.  I knew immediately that I wanted to share what I saw and decided to present some of her creations here.

A La Folie has a number of really cute short dresses with lots of frills and layered skirts.  Some of which come as complete outfits with hat, shoes and/or jewelry.  The first one pictured below is called “Vagabonde”, a strapless mini-dress with a number of options.  First of all, the prim skirts can be worn to produce either an empire or natural waist dress.  The standard skirts are polka dotted white with black lace edged hems.  Alternatively, you can replace a number of them with the optional sheer black tulle.  All together there are eight pieces to the skirt of which you can wear up to five at once, resulting in a multitude of possible looks.  This outfit also includes the shoes and hat seen here.
