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.

A very dear friend of mine took me to *YS & YS*, I was amazed at the quality and I was like a kid in a candy store!  Later she introduced me to Monicuzza Babenco, owner of *YourSkin & YourShape*.

I knew immediately I wanted to blog her wonderful designs.  From gorgeous boots, prim feet shoes, jewlery, lashes and shapes.  I love skins, yes, I am a skin-o-holic!  Monicuzza’s skins are some of the most beautiful in all of Second Life. 

YS&YS earrings

 These chunky ivory earrings are my absolute favorite!  You can buy each piece separetely or the set which includes the necklace, two bracelets, earrings and flexi armbands.  They’re perfect for about any ocassion from formal to casual.  Monicuzza has a beautiful selection of jewelry.

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.

Hair:  ETD – Nadia – blonde

As any girl knows, there always seems to be a reason to buy more lingerie or another pair of shoes.  For shoes, it may be that you just don’t have the exact right pair for that new outfit or you just have to try some from a brand new store or designer.  When it comes to lingerie, how often have you seen a new sensual release that you just had to have?  Or maybe it’s time to spice up a romance.  I know that I can come up with many reasons, some would say excuses, to buy more of these two items.  A peek into my shoe and lingerie folders in my inventory would prove that.  Luckily, just as in real life, Second Life offers a plethora of quality shoe and lingerie stores.  One of my favorites for elegant lingerie is, of course, Insolence, best known for it’s high quality, luxurious lingerie sets.  Camilla Yosuke, the owner of Insolence, takes great pride in her designs and makes sure that each new release not only maintains her high standards of quality, but also offers a unique styling and isn’t just a rehashed previous offering.  Her latest set, the Dolores Lace Ensemble, holds true to these ideals.

Pictured above is the Delores set which is sold in black and white, the black variation available with various colors of flowerettes in the lace detail of the bra (see top inset).  Besides the all black and allwhite sets, you can get the black with red, gold, purple or teal.   This is a classic three-piece set consisting of matching bra, panties and garter belt and as is typical for Insolence sets, there are various combination and layer options for the garments.  A pair of classic back-seamed stockings in either black or white is also included.

The wonderful selection of lingerie sets offered at Insolence is reason enough to visist on a regular basis, but as an added bonus, there is also a small but growing selection of shoes.  The most recent addition to the this line is the Marie Jeanne Heel. The black and purple (bottom inset) can be seen above.  The same attention to detail as in the lingerie can be seen on the shoes, as evidenced byt the realistic texturing and silver strap buckle.  Other colors available are Beige, Carmel, Pink and Steel Blue, while the black is available with gold or silver buckles.

JCNY

JD Hansen

This week I am so proud to be writing about one of the absolute best jewelry designers in Second Life.  I have stated before, that when I first came into Second Life, I wanted to find high quality fashion in all fields.  At first it was very hard and as all new people who come to this marvelous world, I was clueless as to where I could find all that I was looking for.  I’m still not sure how I found JCNY, but I can still remember how I felt, when I first walked into the store.

I felt as if I could not get enough of it.  The store was full of beautiful clothing, shoes, diamonds, jewels and all committed to superb craftsmanship.  I am also impressed with the professional manner in which they handle all of their customers.  I made an incorrect purchase once.  I contacted JD Hansen and she made everything right with me in absolute record time.  While this was going on, I happened to be able to talk to her just a little and she was mentioning about how long it takes to design her jewelry.  That her team sometimes work on one piece for weeks to get it just right.  That nothing is released until it is meticulous in every aspect.  I bought the Mariner World Time Zone Watch for my partner, Dolphin Robson as a gift for Christmas.  It is his favorite piece of jewelry.  When looking at it up close, it replicates a real world watch explicitly.  From a distance the quality is still discernable.  There is nothing like fine craftsmanship as far as I am concerned or anyone else for that manner.  I would also like to thank JD Hansen, for giving this absolutely breathtaking jewelry at such affordable prices.  When you think of the time and expense that has gone into developing any of her creations, it is beyond me, how the price still comes in so reasonable.

At JCNY you will also find The Vault.  Inside the vault you will find the Limited Editions.  With such exquisite designs as the Genesis and Nova Collections.  Which are pictured below.  Now these two pieces have had only 30 of each made and they have sold through half of each.  Any man wanting to give the ultimate gift to his woman, well here it is.

This summer Ann Otoole surprised me already with some fancy Mary Janes.  And now she did it again.  I received the newly released *UN* Pretty-n-Punk Mary Janes, Dolly Goth Chunky Pump Sculpty Shoes in Gold with diamonds, spikes, and studs.

What to say about them… first of all they have killer heels to make you walk with just the right wiggle. They are made in shining gold and they show an amazing prim work, from the diamonds to the sexy strap around the ankles.  With December on the way, they are just what you need to make a boring Xmas dinner scintillating or to make you shine and stand out at a glamorous party.  Only a little warning, be careful to wax your legs, do some extra exercise and buy the most shining, smooth sheers you can find, because all eyes will be focused at your feet and ankles!  If I only had known that this is punk…

Of course I could not resist the news that AOHARU launched a shoe line, AOHARU walk, with a 50% sale. So I grabbed my bag and went shoe shopping with the excuse that I have to stay up-to-date with the fashion world for my work. While looking around and talking to some long-time-no-see friends, Katx Kirax screamed in my ear: “it’s C on the lucky chair.” I still can not resist these chairs, so did what I had to do and accepted the lovely new ballet flats, a part of the new shoe collection, available in many colors.

Katx Kirax is a smartly dressed, very friendly Japanese lady. She loves to DJ and has just started working, as of July, as fashion designer. And she gave me one of her first designs in exchange for the ballet flats which I already had.

Katx Kirax: “I opened my store sometime in July but I loved playing with Photoshop from the start. My friend, Kellie Iwish (well known from Elate), is the best teacher. She is supporting me all the time. She’s a great friend.”

On the picture: [ Bingo ] Belle Eyelet Black Dress (120 LD) combined with the AOHARU Snow Boots in White and baby blue (0 LD)

The dress is really cute. And taking into account that Katx only started a month ago it is really amazing work. The dress has 2 skirt options, a layered one and a single one. Both fit very well, the patterns match, and they have good movement. The top is a strapless one, also here the patterns match well, maybe the shades on the top could be less, but I guess that is personal taste. And another big plus, the dress seems to match perfectly with the free boots you can find on the wall at AOHARU.

I was really curious to see the rest of her designs, so I went to her shop called Bingo! (more…)
