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.

I’m back on track after a short break from blogging, and natural looks are what I want to blog about today. If you dont already know who the creator of Earthstones is, then you better go and visit her shop, as you’re about the only one who doesn’t! They have fantastic jewelery and accessories for anyone who loves fashion, and they are of very high quality, I can assure you that.

In the first picture, I am wearing “Beautiful Slave footlets – Abalone” which is a really beautiful oriental-style foot decoration. And the good thing about it was that I didnt need to adjust it at all. Just wear it and it sit perfectly on your avi´s foot.

Hi. My name is Willemina Meriman and I’m a new junior model with EFA. I will be blogging for you once a week. For my first blog I took a walk in the park….well, after shopping of course. As the weather was perfect, I chose this light summer dress in cream, honey and olive. The dress comes with a set of two bracelets and a pair of earrings. I replaced the earrings with a set of earrings and necklace in gold and apatite; a great combination with this dress. To protect my eyes against the midday sun I was wearing a pair of dark sunglasses. These are olive to match the trimming of my dress. Like the rest of my accessories, a cute leather and wood handbag with nice details and shoes in olive shades. The shoes are elegant, but comfortable enough for a walk. I hope you enjoy my first blog.

Harriet Gausman: When did you first start designing in SL?

Abbraxxa Anatine: I started creating the minute I got my own land which was I think, early July, about 4 or 5 weeks into my Second Life. I needed furniture.

Harriet Gausman: Did you have any RL design skills or did you learn in-world?

Have I already told you that I am taking care of Sebastiaan and Kenny’s plants in their beautiful house in Costa Rica? You’ve probably read their Alpha Male posts and noticed they have a good sense of taste, which is surely reflected in their home! Really fabulous, guys, thanks again for letting me stay here. It is bringing me in a sunny summer mood day to day…

And so does this chain from EarthStones. Abraxxa Anatine gave it to me. I like it a lot, because it can give an extra touch to many different outfits. It makes a jeans outfit with a simple white tank less standard and it can give a spring dress that sunny mood or even completely warm up a winter outfit. Or it can be simply worn with your bikini at a stylish beach. With all the colors of the stones it is not difficult to find a matching outfit!
