Siryelle’s Dream Fashion

I came across a really fab store called Siryelle's Dream which was a store I visited for the first time.  The designer, Siryelle Yalin, impressed me a lot with her very delicate designs and lovely texture.

Two new gowns were just released when I visited and I decided to buy one of the new released dresses but also one more that was not a new release but a gown that caught my eyes.  The two were so different but both very unique and great designs.

The new release, "Lady Dark", is a boudoir type gown and I absolutely loved this outfit colour.  This gown can be worn as a gown or as a lingerie dress with a garter and stockings.  What's unusual about this outfit is that it comes with this hair I am wearing here as part of the set.

And the next one, "Orange Delight Gown", was not a new release but nevertheless a really lovely gown.  It comes with a black top and also a matching orange top so you have an option for the top and it also comes with this lovely hat.  The flowers you see in the picture are attached to the hat and works as a great accent to this rather simple but impactful gown..… Read the rest

The Red Look

I found this really gorgeous red gown with a fantastic texture at a baroque fashion house called Ephemera.  Among many lovely baroque gowns, the designer had a few regular gowns which were all very simple compared to her extravagant baroque gowns but all very tastefully made and extremely elegant.

I ended up buying most of the gowns she had and started to style them one by one.

This gown was called "Butter Red" and I am not sure where the name "butter" came from but it was one of the most lovely red gowns I have ever seen.

So I took this skirt and since I wanted a different top, I replaced the top to a corset by KWZ and it turned out to be one of my favorite gown looks.

New Release: GizzA, Tricot Set

GizzA Creations' newest release is called Tricot Set that comes in four colour variations, Ultramarine, Champagne, Olive and Plume.

Here I am wearing Ultramarine which is a very deep blue that can be better described as a deep cobalt blue rather than navy blue.  It looks like it's black here but it is actually a very pretty and very dark blue.  It comes with a red leather belt and the red/white scarf with a matching colour corsage.

I decided to style this with a large tote bag and get ready for a fun shopping tour over the weekend.  Yay!  Retail therapy is always the best!

SoliDea FoliEs "Rouges" for Fan Limited

Mila Tatham's brand SoliDea FoliEs has an amazing new release called "Rouges" which was sold as the 7th Edition outfit in the Fan Limited Store.

This store has a very unique system where some of the major brands would release outfits/accessories for a 50% discount over regular prices for one item each over a duration of three weeks.  During this period, only 30 of each item will be sold and after that, the items can still be purchased in the respective stores but the prices will go up to regular prices.  If the 30 are sold out before the end of the three week period, the vendors will show "SOLD OUT" signs and you will have to wait till the three weeks are up and go to the main store to purchase them at regular prices.

After this three week period, the next Edition sets will be on sale for another three weeks.


SoliDea FoliEs - Rouges


At the time I purchased this outfit at the Fan Limited Store, there were only 3 left but since I bought one, that means there were only two left after my purchase.  So maybe they are all sold out by now but you can still buy this at the SoliDea FoliEs store, if you really like it.… Read the rest

New Release: Mea Culpa, Time Warp

Mea Culpa has released a new gown called "Time Warp"!

I am assuming the name comes from the head accessory which must be inspired from the shape of a Japanese Kabuto (head gear in Japanese armours worn by the head samurais) in the samurai days.

In contrast to the valiant head accessory, the outfit is a very elegant mermaid gown, making this outfit very appealing and interesting to style.

Meiling – More From The Grand Riviere Collection

Real life designer, Meiling, launched her RL Spring/Summer Collection "Grand Riviere" recently starting off with her promotional garment Wind Song Dress, which I blogged about in this blog.

Now she has launched more from this all-white collection which has gathered much press coverage and excitement in RL and we are seeing more coming into SL!

Here, I will introduce two of such most recent SL launched the White Peony Gown and the Mt. Plaisir Dress.  Although they are all different in design, the simple, clean and yet elegant style that Meiling is known for is inherited in her SL collections.

The White Peony Gown is a very simple gown seen from the front but the back of the gown is all covered with flowers made from the same material and positively betrays our expectation by presenting a gorgeous and elegant look.  This gown is most likely best styled by keeping the rest a simple and clean as the frontal view.

A New Release from Glitterati by Sapphire – Alisha Coffee

Glitterati by Sapphire with designer Sapphire Teebrook has just released "Alisha Coffee" on July 3.  It is a casual set that includes a corduroy type tube top, a short jacket in cream colour and three types of corduroy type pants that you can style; slim pants, boot cut and capri pants.  Of course you can style this with or without the jacket and with different pants so it a very versatile set with a very good value.

Here I styled the slim pants with the short jacket and wore another new items from Glitterati that was released together with the outfit set, which is the really cute sneaker type ankle boots that I am wearing here in the pics.


This outfit set is sold for a discounted 199L for a few days and the ankle boots are offered for a whopping 75% group discount for a limited time also.  So run and grab them now before the limited sales is over!!


I matched these with a hat from LeLutka, a really nice casual tote bag from Boom and also a new type of jewelry released from ByKay.  These Cleo Jewelry were created by KayLeigh McMillan with special care taken to keep the ARC (Avatar Rendering Cost) down.  So this new low ARC jewelry will be perfect items to wear to heavy-lag events and fashion shows.  KayLeigh will be releasing more designs in her low-ARC jewelry series so these are definitely worth keeping an eye on.… Read the rest

New Release from the Niven Collection – Paint Splash Dress

A cute dress that's full of colours is out from the Niven Collection with designer Scarlett Niven.    This is such a fun outfit with so many different ways you can style it!
Being a big fan of colours who love to play with different colour combinations, I decided to do the same with this outfit.

The Niven Collection - Paint Splash Dress
The outfit comes with two skirt types; one sheer and one solid colour versions.  It also comes with a top with sleeves or no sleeves and you can also choose to wear a collar, collar with broach, only broach or nothing at all.  So possibilities are endless!
 
Here I wore it with the solid skirt, no sleeve tank type top and wore only the broach.  I changed the attachment point of the broach, however, from left to right shoulder to avoid the hair.  This hair, by the way, is another new hair that was released from Bliss Hair for Hair Fair.

Tights:  Ivalde, Tights Collection (yellow)
Earrings:  Crystal Line, Roman Set (used earrings only)

Mashooka Designs – Suhana

I went to visit my good friend and designer, Aradhana Voight to her store, Mashooka Designs and before I left the store, found this lovely summery outfit "Suhana" in the New Release items area.  I got the Grape colour and decided to style it a bit differently.


Mashooka Designs - Suhana (grape)

Suhana is a very cute outfit that uses silky printed fabric.  Something that is very fun to style during the hot summer season.


The metallic glitter tights that I wore here was a freebie offered in a store called G L A M which I obtained some time ago.  I still treasure this set as it is a set of tintable tights that you can add any colour you like by editing it.



I matched this with a new release from Mandala, called "Milky Way" which is offered only in white, as the name suggests.  And the shoes are a new release from Pixel Fashion.  The killer pin heel comes in several shades which you can change with a menu.

Dress: Mashooka Designs, Suhana (grape)
Tights: G L A M, Tintable Metallic Lycra Tights
Necklace & Earrings: Mandala, Milkyway2 Necklace & Earrings
Bracelets: Mandala, Milkyway Bracelet
Prim Nails: CCD, Prim Nails + Ring, Famous (Turquoise)
Shoes: Pixel Fashion, Eve Temptation (Purple)
Hair: I made this hair myself and it is not on sale

From Meiling's real life Press Release:
MEILING's Grand Riviere CollectionAt Caribbean Fashion Week 2011, Meiling revealed a capsule collection called “Grand Riviere”. Inspired by the idyllic village in the Northern range of Trinidad, the all-white collection is a study in serenity and romance, not unlike the famed Jean Michael Cazabon  paintings.
In her inimitable style, Meiling captures the spirit of gentler days gone by with designs that embody the narratives in the Cazabon paintings of the 1800s.… Read the rest
