Wonderlandian

A quick Wonderland-themed post for one of my RL BFFs. She’s super awesome, and we’re going to see Burton’s Alice in Wonderland tonight, so this one is for her.

The Dollhouse has doll dresses for avatars and released a Queen’s Dolls set a while back, one dress for each suit of cards. Here we have the Heart’s dress – and it goes with some of my favorite shoes! (And oh, how do I love shoes!)

I drank too much of that thing and now I’m huge!

Ta-da!

I love how the skirt moves and bounces just like that dolly that is being behind some toddler down the street. Seriously though (well, as serious as I get) it’s not just a song and dance, and seriously, it’s a lot more fun if you check out the other Flickr photos too!

For the Love of McQueen Part 3

A few more things in the For the Love of McQueen tribute. Today we have a little bit of everything from wardrobe outfitters, Casa del Shai and Indyra Originals. Each piece is uniquely inspiring, and I had a great time taking all of the pictures.

Regardless of whether you’re dealing with RL or SL, sometimes fashion just speaks to you. Although in SL, it is more likely that fashion might pop up an IM, I was thinking of a more metaphorical speaking. Sometimes it’s as simple as making you smile, sometimes it’s knowing that by putting something on, you (or your avatar) become part of a work of art. In the case of all three designers, they have offered pieces of art and I can’t help but feel the excitement of knowing you’re wearing something special.

Wardrobe outfitters (Aurelia Scarpulla) brings an ethereal element to their Tousled par Tous outfit that is hard to capture in any life. I love the flowers mixed in with the tulle-esque shoulder piece, and the contrast with the simply elegant bodice. When I first put it on, I stared at it for what felt like ages – it was everything I had hoped it would be from the picture I had beforehand. And then I started taking pictures! 🙂

This piece by Casa del Shai (Shai Delacroix) reminds me of something from a modern art gallery. Anyone who knows me in RL knows that I have little love for abstract modern art, but I think I have found a way to change that – just make sure that what I see is like this! To be honest, I was hesitant of the pod-gown, but once I got it on (and found the right hair!), I couldn’t stop looking at it. The detail is incredible, as with all of the pieces in this event, and it definitely evoked a pod – all cocooned in couture.

Indyra Originals (Indyra Seigo) gives us our rock and roll. I will have to remember to take a picture of the back of this outfit because it has an awesome skull on the back of the pink – perfect detail! I can’t say enough about the Sakura du Mort and how incredible it is. Inspired by the cherry blossom, you can see this most literally in the detail of the neckline and the leggings. More abstractly, you can see it in the shape of the outfit, especially the skirt and collar – it’s incredible.

Enough waxing not so poetically about these outfits. I know it sounds like I am saying the same thing about all of them, but (as you can see) they are all very different; however, what makes them the same (and what makes us all the same) is that everything is unique and fabulous! (more…)


Alatiel Fashions – For the Love of McQueen

A quick update… Alatiel has this dress available as their tribute to Alexander McQueen.

I love the shape of the skirt and the detail on the brooch.

For the Love of McQueen

AVENUE, one of SL’s modeling agencies and magazines arranged a fashion show and subsequent fundraiser “For the Love of McQueen” in tribute to the late Alexander McQueen. The fashion show has already come and gone, but the fundraiser is that the designers involved in the show will have something available in their stores to purchase and 100% of the proceeds of these purchases will go to Keep A Child Alive. Not all designers have their item out in store at the moment, but they should be there soon!

McQueen was always taking chances in fashion and the designers involved have definitely been inspired by his knack for making fashion into art – or, rather, art into fashion. Personally, I’ve always been fascinated by fashion as art, and the pieces I have been able to pick up are incredible. I will be taking pictures and posting as I have time over the next day or so – today’s piece is from 3636.

3636 (owned by dianny3636 Aeon) not only has a gown available from their couture line, but also hair with a hat (not pictured). Something I have always enjoyed about 3636 hair, which until now is all I have had a chance to experience, is how abstract and picturesque it is – and that is definitely something that has been taken over to their couture line, if this dress is any indication.

Style Notes:

Gown: 3636 – You will be in my heart
