Well, I went to grab some of the beautiful Group Gifts at Vero Modero, but since I was headed for the beach anyway….I grabbed this fantastic little suit and cover anyway. So, head over there and get those , but don’t pass up some of her summer time beauties!
I have spent so much shopping lately, but that’s not hard when I visit store like Vanity Hair, Vogue and Eshi Otawara. But in the end, it is more then worth it. I love this Couture look. I think I just might wear this to……well….everywhere!

My job, should I choose to accept it, was to up my style! Find something beautiful, tasteful and couture. Something lovely for an evening out. Was it hard? Not with places like Bliss, Dura and N-Core to choose from. I finished this look with some Face Paint Makeup and a new jewelry designer I discovered on marketplace. I love this look.

Anyone who reads my blog, knows I love fashion. Fashion is a huge part of Second Life for me but sometimes, on very rare occasions, beautiful fashion transcends into Amazing Art. There are several stores on my “Art List” What each has in common is the ability to see beyond their work as clothing and into a realm of creativity where they see the piece as autonomous, standing on it’s own. It is often difficult to style these pieces. The trick is to choose additional pieces to compliment them, but not compete with them. Below are 2 stylings and a list of my favorite “Art” stores.
Can you guess where these things are from? I’m not going to tell you. Below is a list of stores. Use this list and go look. Happy hunting!
This store has High fashion Avante Garde Clothing, but I’ll be honest…..it’s the shoes I go there for. They are AMAZING! The most unique shoes on the grid.
Again, this store coves the hole spectrum. But it’s the Hair and dresses/Gowns I think are amazing. I’d own most of them if I could. They are my idea of BEAUTIFUL Avante Guarde.
The Mad Hattery
Lots of Designers in Second Life make hats. This one makes Art that you wear on your head. Don’t even bother with clothes. No one will notice anything but the hat.
Jewelry & Accessories here. Anything you want, as long as what you want is bold, colorful and unapologetic.
My Favorite Makeup store. A huge selection of everything. Styles are beautiful, quality, varied and well priced. A nice selection for men as well.
I found this lovely look, Zoe in rose at Collabro88. It is new this month and comes in several colors. This was one of my favorites. Earrings and Bracelet are from Chop Zuey Graceful Intuition PK, makeup from Face Paint and Shoes are from R2″Ala” Pink also at Collabro88.
This is an up close view of the Chop Zuey Graceful Intuition Pk Earrings.
I managed to get my hands on a gorgeous mesh Cocktail Dress from a brand new company, called Vegacelli, coming soon to the grid. And, let me tell you, the quality of this mesh is amazing! You know what a stickler I am on mesh, and the detail in this dress is brilliant. Just take look at the intricacy of these folds. The effect of the light play across the material is incredibly life like. The textures on the dress are equally beautiful, the whole over all look is right on the mark. The dress fits well on a well balanced figure and it moves perfectly with the body.

I had the pleasure of getting my hands on these three beautiful gowns from Vero Modero and, as is my habit, I mixed and matched up the gowns with accessories from a combination of fantastic new designers with brilliant veteran Second Life designers. Below are the looks and the lists, enjoy!
…Especially now that Collabor88 has released it’s new collection. Lets See, I got a sweet little pair of shoes from Ingenue, Jive Wedge in Royal, an Illusory Skin “Love_Milk – Shindig”, a wonderful casual updo from “”D!va”” Hair “Sayaka2” in Onyx, and a sexy , summer set of the “Lichtenstein” Top and Skirt in Colbalt from The Sea Hole. I added “Face Paint’s Lip Pop #4”, a pair of Sun Glasses from NYU, some pretty new jewelry “Hana Cold Blue”, still on sale btw, from Eshi Otawara and I was ready for a summer walk.
I’m a big fan of red but I’m a bigger fan of style and I found both in this sophisticated outfit from Vero Modero called “Muge Brick Set”. It comes with 2 different Top styles, I photographed my Favorite, and the belt is a lovely detail. It is casual and sexy and will be one of my favorites. I teamed it up with this Stunning, and brand new, necklace by Mandala called “Omochi Red” and these sweet little Black Leather Heels by NYU and I was almost ready to go. I knew something this Casual Chic needed a special Updo and I found it in “Maitreya’s Green II” Hair style in Black. The makeup, Face Paint’s “After Hours 1” finished the look.
At least most of Second Life will find her new, but I’ve heard from a little birdie that she worked for a few big Fashion Houses before she struck out on her own. This fetching little number is called Debut- Michelle Dress in Teal. I was somewhat skeptical of mesh until I found NYU – Minimalism High Fashion Couture. But these clothes fit like a dream. You will be seeing a lot more of NyuNyu Kimono’s sleek and sharp designs here in the future. BTW boys! She has stuff for you too! I teamed this up with Dura’s Girl 36 in black and Face Paint night life Aqua makeup. Simple, Striking and Fab.
