Lacosta- McQueen, Vasique and Awaken

I was thrilled when I was approached by Kimmy Inkpen approached me and asked me to blog these for her.  Each dress is a statement piece and they are simply wonderful and inspirational.

The first of the three designs that I wouild like to share with you is

MCQueen

McQueen is made with a striking monochrome checkered texture which gives it that air of realism.  Its a unique design with spikes at the neckline keeping any wondering hands at bay.

Next on my list is Vasique

The shapes and fabric marry well together, again forming a striking garment.  As you can see from the image, the top and the skirt are sculpted and are made in such a way that they give this outfit a runway couture edge.  I can almost see it cruising down the runway in RL.

Last but not least is Awaken.

What a simple yet brilliant and once again striking design.  The classic triangular shape with pleats give this outfit its meaning.  There is something strangely delicate about this strong design.  It gets a huge thumbs up from me. 

You can find Kimmy’s designs on the market place here .

I really do hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Finesmith Designs – Straw for Fashion Limited

Yula Finesmith has made the Straw set in White and Pink for the Fashion Limited Store and I adore it.

This is an amazing set full of Yula’s trade mark character.  Although entitled straw, each piece is refined and quite glamorous.  I liked it against the black and white background because that is what instantly came into my head when I put it on.  It will inspire each wearer in a different way.  In any case both the white and pink versions are available at the Fashion Limited store at 270L which is half the normal price.  They will be there only for a limited time so do make sure you head that way and get yours while you can. 

Don’t forget to check out all of her new releases at Finesmith Designs Mainstore also.  You won’t be dissapointed.  Have fun shopping! :D

Pipins – Reve de Jour

Take a look at this work of art.

When I first saw the Pipins Reve de Jour I was like “Woooooooooooow!”  I had never actually seen anything like it before and was blown away. The outfit consists of lots of attachments on most of the body parts and is full of colour on a relatively plain and pale base. 

Here is a glimpse of the back of the garment.  Both the texture design and the shape of the garment are abstract. 

This outfit would look totally fabulous on the runway a real show stealer. 

If you would like to get your hands on Reve de Jour, you will find it at the Pipins store.  I know you will totally love it.

Deesse’s Skins – Terani MESH Dresses

Deesse, more widely known for their skins, have released these dazzling new mesh dresses.  I have 2 of them that I would like to show you.

This is the Terani  MESH dress in blood.  It’s very pretty and just right for Valentine’s day.  The embellishment on the front of the dress makes it striking, so you can easily turn this into something that you would wear to a bar or party.  I like the Little Miss Vixen look though.

This is the dress in beige, which makes it perfect for the spring we are all so eagerly looking forward to.

Terani comes in 5 different sizes to suit different shaped avatars ( a bit like rl pret a porter shopping right?) However be prepared to do a little tweaking to your shape.  That’s quite normal with all mesh clothing.  These dresses move really well with your avatar when you move.  In the image above I am using a pose that I would not normally use with a garment using the system skirt method and you can see that there is no distortion.  That is the beauty of mesh garments.

Here is your limo to Deesse’s Skins, where you will find these and the other striking colours in this collection.  Enjoy your shopping.

Mea Culpa – Valentia Del Toro

Welcome again, hope you have all had a great weekend.

I am so proud to be presenting Mea Culpa’s Valentia Del Toro.

Recognise it?  Well for those of you who are not familiar with the “Miss Virtual World” Second Life pageant, this gown was worn by Miss Spain, the beautiful Miss Shena Neox who looked absolutely divine in it.  Mea Culpa designer Tatanka Kaligawa created this highly detailed work of art with the Spanish theme running right through it.  You can see the bull’s horns in this true avante garde piece.

Here is a glimpse of the back where you can appreciate the detail in the train. 

I have seen Shena wearing it and she really made this dress work for her. 

You can purchase your very own piece of Spain here, at the Mea Culpa Mainstore.

You too will fall in love with it.
