Geometric Days

Very overdue blog post for Zibska and FIERA which ends today so you'd better RUN to grab some of the amazing exclusives at some very good prices.
Love this all in one pants/top with it's bold geometric design. The top has lovely folds that accentuate a thin waist just below. The pants are very practical three quarter length, perfect for Spring days. Shown here in reds/greys there is several other colours to choose from.

The collar and hat are also by Zibska and are a great design using overlapping circles. Both would work with many outfits, and as you can see the hat can be worn with a topknot peeking through. These both have a choice of metallic textures, though I went with silver and gold.
This topknot style with long accents framing the face is by MINA, and I thought  was perfect with the hat. The shoes with their almost matching geometric style in red is by Esque. And the celtic silver bracelets, also with a geometric style are by Magic Nook.

A Wild Butterfly

Not usually a huge fan of animal print, though my best SL girlfriend adores it. This butterfly outfit by Finesmith is an exception though. Just totally fell in love with everything about it. The collar, the wings, the dress all come together to create a fabulous butterfly look. The collar is fabulous with it's long fly-away train of feathers, set above two rows of feathers arranged as a full-circle around the shoulders. The part that really defines it though is the butterfly shaped wings.

As a happy co-incidence I had some Finesmith earrings from the LUPE set that totally matched the butterfly look, so they were a must. For hair I chose one of my favourite EMO-tions hairs with a native feel large clasp pulling it up into a long ponytail with a few feathers hanging from the top of the ponytail.

Eyeshadow is a mix of two different shadows by Zibska and available as exclusives at the Skin Fair until March 30th. Lastly I added some graduated shade black/gold-brown bangles by EMO-tions, and some jungle print nails by Nailed It.

That Sadie Vibe

Showing off 3 of my favourite designers this time.
First is this great Zibska dress and hat with it's big bold flowers hanging from chains, and accented with a sweep of petals. This will be one of the exclusives that Zibska has on offer for the FIERA Saviad Spring Fashion Fair that starts on the 15th. Second up is this fabulous bold Finesmith set from a previous 55L event, now at full price. The intricacies of the detail on the metalwork is superb, with huge bold crystals in the centre on all pieces. Very much a must buy set in my opinion. Third on my list of fabulous designers featured is Madrid Solo. Just love her make-ups with their fresh originality and brilliant designs. Here I used an eyeshadow, and lipstick.

For shoes I went with the new DRD Slink shoes available at the Whore Couture Fair. The chains fitted just perfectly with the dress.

Lastly is hair, because the rest of the outfit is basically black and silver, I decided a nice bright colour would give it all a lift, so chose this great bob design by [taketomi]. The bright 2 tone blue of the hair was perfectly picked up with the 2 tone blue eyeshadow.

Heart of Desire(e)

The second Zibska post is this fabulous dress and hat called Desiree. There is three colour choices - Noir, Gold, and Berry. I chose Berry. I just love this, it epitomises so much about Zib's whimsical style. The skirt is completely made up of lots of "leafs" on stalks. The hat is simple and stylish, and has matching "leafs". Several rows of studs adorn the bodice top at the front to complete the look of the dress.

Desiree_body
To give a stylish look I added long SLINK enabled gloves from Purple Moon, an almost 40's style hair from Amacci, and some pearl drop earrings by Maxi Gossamer.

Desiree_full

Finished it off with just over-the-knee boots by Kitties Lair, and added an almost matching eyeshadow, also by Madrid Solo. By the way Zibska are having a sale right at the moment with a bunch of stuff at just $50L.

Roses are Red

This is the first of two posts I am doing on Zibska's offerings for the "Love is in the Air" event. This event will end at the end of this month (28th February), so you only have a few more days to get there if you haven't. Or go back and grab some more fabulous fashions if you already have.
I've been a huge fan of Zibska for quite a while now, and this dress is no exception. It is a simple short sheath type dress that is lifted to another level with the fabulous "petals" that float out at the shoulder, and are gathered together on one side. It is available in Gold, Noir, and Sangue (which I chose).

For hair I added D!va's really pretty must-have offering for the same event. Love that bow in the centre of the hair! Boots are from the thigh-highs by Maitreya at this month's Collabor88 and are an absolute steal at that price.

Jewellery is ISON's amazing new necklace, again from this month's Collabor88, Lazuri earrings, and Maxi Gossamer bracelets, and rings. The eyes are these fabulous mesh eyes I have been wearing lately from Miamai. They have so many options on the HUD that it is like new eyes every day if you so choose.

Everything is Black and White

It has been absolute craziness with the weather. Here in Victoria, Australia we have had a heatwave with day after day of high 30's or even low 40's C. (That's roughly 95 - 107 F for those that use the farenheit scale). With this has come bushfires, lots of them. Right across the state. Thankfully though there has been no loss of human life, and our Firefighters have worked miracles. I can't help but contrast that with the insane cold the US has been having, with snowfalls in places that usually never see snow in any quantity. And over in the UK they are virtually under water with the horrendous storms and all the rain they have been getting.
Black and white combinations, and stripes are some of my favourite design choices. I love the stark boldness that black and white give. So when I saw these black/white striped bloomer shorts from The Secret Store, and the white crop jacket with black ridges on the upper arms, also from The Secret Store, I knew I had to have them and put something together from them. Also a major sucker for crop jackets.

Wasn't really sure which way I wanted to go with this outfit, so experimented with a few ideas, none of which felt right. Then I decided to have a look at the Dressing Room Fusion, and saw this really cool hair with a spiky top, and plaits at the sides pulled back into a little ponytail. from Loq. That was it, that was the look I had wanted. So now it was time to accessorise. First thing was sunglasses. I wanted ones that spoke style. These ones from Glam Affair were perfect. Next up was jewellery. I'd already decided to wear one of my favourite necklaces in this one from Amorous. For earrings and bracelets I went to who else but Finesmith. The group gift from July last year was perfect. Next was nails, I went with the black and white nails by Nailed it. And then finally boots. I think I went through half my inventory worth of boots looking for just the right ones. These boots from Fri. were just the thing.

 Last thing I wanted to show was this fabulously cute dog (bulldog?) by Birdy. The jacket the dog wears is colour changeable through a HUD. A total must have for anyone into cute wearables.

Lovely in Lace

A couple of days late getting this post out due to migraine. So if you like the Fur stole you only have today to run and grab it. Sorry.
I have to admit I am a romantic, and just adore lace. So this dress at Collabor88 by Maitreya was an absolute must-have for me. I bought it in 2 shades, but am showing just the black here. It's a long fitted sheath dress that can be worn by itself, or as I have with the long lace overdress designed to go over the top. To give it a slightly individual touch I then added this gorgeous Fur stole with an oversized colour change bow by Adore & Abhor. And as an accent I added the huge flower style hat by Bliss at the waist.
gown_full
The hair I chose is Locuala by D!va, also from Collabor88, with the Bliss hat Reemany to give a fabulous formal look. This new jewellery set with big bold square cut gems by Lazuri, and shoes with red accents at the back of the heels (all components of these shoes have a colour change option) by Gos complete the look.
