Vivienne by My Precious

Today I'm very pleased to be able to bring you My Precious' newest release Vivienne. This breathtaking gown in snowy lace and satin will make you feel like a dream when you're in it. It reminded me of Vivien Leigh at the height of her career...mysterious and stunningly beautiful. The bodice allows enough of your skin to peek through to be alluring and coupled with the deep cut skirt, it makes for a enticing and sophisticated look.

Hurry down to My Precious and get one of these for yourself. You won't regret it.

Now where is Nev.....*evil grin*

House of RFyre

Well, Nev and I are still going through the "after Relay" inventory search and we found a couple of things from our friend Raven Pennyfeather that we had to mention here. For anyone not familiar with RFyre, Raven creates highly detailed gothic, medieval and couture designs using hand drawn textures and fine attention to detail. When we're looking for event wear, RFyre is at the top of the list of stops. She also makes a mean roast beef...*grins*

Today we'd like to highlight 3 of her latest releases...Clan, Tainted Love and the Boudoir.

Clan is a beautiful Scottish formal set in the red and black tartan pictured here or in white and black. This can be worn with a couple of different options so you can make it truly your own look.

Here we have Tainted Love..hot and sexy glam goth. I love the textures and different options available to style it for any occasion. It's available in black, indigo and red.

Finally, the just released RFyre Boudoir. This one is the Barbed Blood Red and there are several other sets available. Perfect for your darker, sensual side.

All of these and more can be found at RFyre. If you've never been there, take a wander. We're sure you'll find something you like.

Fashion For Life

As many are aware, Nevar and I made some major changes to the structure and format of the clothing fair this past year. Because the changes were so successful, after much discussion and soul searching, we've partnered with the American Cancer Society to bring to Second Life Relay for Life's newest For Life event..."Fashion For Life".

What does this mean for you, the shopper? It means we will continue to bring all the wonderful designers and styles you've come to expect. We will work hard to keep bringing together the best builders, artists and content creators to give you one of the best shopping experiences in Second Life. Oh and you'll see some different signage. *grins*

We are thrilled and honored to now be a part of the For Life events in Second Life and we hope to continue for many years to contribute to the fight against cancer. Someday, we will find a cure...and until then...we Relay!

Avrele Designs

On Sunday I ran into one of my dear friends Avrele Guisse and as we were talking she was excitedly telling me about her last 2 releases, which unfortunately I'd missed while being wrapped up in the end of the Relay season. She graciously passed them to me and I ran home to try them on...as any good fashionista would. *grins*

This gorgeous red one below is called Necromonger. It's a beautiful gown made of rich crimson velvet with the black lace accents and gloved and finished with the long spine ornament in the back. The thing I really like and admire about Avrele is the fabric textures, they seem to come alive. This gown has a couple of different options...no spine ornament, removable side train...so you can customize as you desire. It also comes in black and plum.

And next is Christine. This is a wedding ensemble, again with a few options to make it truly your own. I love the detail on the dress....the pearl and jewel accents, the fine lace and the unique veil. Remove the veil and lace skirts and you have the perfect evening gown. Oh and underneath all this is a scrumptious lingerie set to round out the details.

Both of these and all of Avrele's Designs can be found at the House of RFyre. Grab the cab!

Narcisse by Agnes Finney

OMG...these are the words Nev used when he saw this gown. Agnes Finney's newest release is one of the sexiest and most provacative gowns I've seen and had the pleasure of wearing for quite some time. Narcisse is a daring gown and will stand out in any crowd. The fine lace and sheer dress comes with a couple of different options from long to short with varying degrees of modesty so anyone can enjoy it. If you were looking for the perfect "little black dress"...this is definitely it.

Don't forget Agnes also has this beautiful and feminine gown below in the Platinum Hunt. So while you're over picking up Narcisse be sure to look for that little box as well. You definitely can't go wrong with either of these.

Grab the limo to My Precious.

Platinum Hunt Begins tomorrow!

I had an opportunity to preview some of the great items you'll see during the Platinum Hunt. Beginning August 8th and running through the 30th, this one looks to be very exciting. 100 of SL's best designers have been hand picked to participate and for a mere 10L each you can get some awesome looks. Each of the gifts in this hunt are worth far more than that. You're looking for a little jewelry box with a pearl inside and the hunt items are not so well hidden you'll need an army to find them. The hunt will start at the ISPACHI main store.

Below are a couple of shots I put together from a few of the participating stores:

Skin: Rockberry - Kalista Tan
Hair: Exile - Samara Earth
Necklace: *ICED* Grace
Dress: Adam & Eve - Vanessa short (this comes with 2 lengths)
Shoes: Heart and Sole - Sassy Platinum
Teapot: Baffle! - comes with 7 poses and texture change
Standing Pose: [doll] Celestia 3

More tomorrow...
