Gatsby Inspired look @ The Dressing Room

June 2013- The Dressing Room display

I’m a huge fan of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and the original version of the motion picture, (the good one with dashing Robert Redford :-)).  When I walked into the June edition The Dressing Room, I was inspired by Drift Zoe Maxi dress in Bloom and LaGyo Poppy headpiece in pink.  To complete the look, I purchased Just Design Deviant Shoes in Shock pink and paired it with some Arcade finds; Gizza Straw Summer Bag and Pink Fuel Harley 04 skin (a huge THANK YOU goes out to ★MISS V♛ USA ★ Averil who shared some of her goodies with me (and started my Arcade addiction :-)).  Remember ladies, The Dressing Room is a discount shopping event with creations from top SL designers reduced to 40-70L.  I believe a new rounds starts Friday, June 21, so hop over and grab up these deals before they are gone.

Spooky style for Springtime

AD-Group Gift-April, close-upWhen I saw the Angel Dessous unique black box special today, Wednesday, April 17, 2013, I thought it was a late April fools joke.  I normally never bash or say anything negative about a store or gifts.  I do not review items for stores or events because frankly I don’t believe official bloggers are objective when you are receiving gifts from designers. I only blog hunts/events or stores that I personally shop at and would like to share with my readers. The past couple of weeks I haven’t had time to juggle the real world, work, friends & family, and Second Life.  I didn’t have time to blog or participate in contest, fashion shows or spring shopping sprees.  I merely mention this because when I googled Angel Dessous and black box specials this morning, I was surprised that only Hidden Gems popped up in the search results.  Furthermore, the blog stats spike every Wednesday, so I presume that SL shoppers check out my blog to determine if they want to invest 69L in the Angel Dessous black box special each week.  My answer today is NO, unless you need a Halloween or Masquerade Ballgown in Spring.  The Angel Dessous black box special, Jovan is a black Monique Lhuillier inspired whipped cream skirt and orange corset with feather shoulders. While at Angel today, I picked up the April group gift, Pleasure, a black velvet corset with bolero fur trimmed jacket.  This lingerie set will be nice for winter evenings by the fireplace, however velvet is just not my friend during the sunny California spring nights. On the bright side, I would like to share the RUST sim, a Steampunk inspired mix area with machines, plants and elephants swaying in the breeze.  Also, I participated in the Dark Romance hunt and picked up 120 free gifts including the Wow Sophia skin worn in the photo.  Both the Rust sim and dark romance hunt are worth checking out.

Wedding Bells for the Spring Bride!

Angel Dessous black box special today, Wednesday, April 3, 2013 is a perfect lingerie set for the Spring bride to use on her honeymoon.  The cream lace Monique bra, panties and waist cincher with bustle and bow speaks the language of love.  My something blue is my Truth rose hair accessory, something borrowed is Chop Zuey Tiger Lily & Opal choker and ring, and something old are my glass slippers from Cinderella :-).  A nice lingerie set that I highly recommend you grab at the steal of 69L only available today.

This year, The Skin Fair will take place from Friday, March 15, through Sunday, March 31. The fair will showcase new and exclusive skins from over 80 of your favorite designers from around the grid. We have been careful to include skins that would appeal to everyone including male and female skins, child skins, fantasy skins, and even mesh avatars!

The fair covers two sims this year which is good news for everyone because that means more people can shop at once. We will be enforcing a strict script policy at the fair. Please come in as little as possible but as the sims are PG, please make sure that all private parts are covered. Detach all objects that you may be wearing. This will allow for a better shopping experience for all. There will be a lag free outfit dropped in the Skin Addiction group and the Skin Fair 2013 group before the fair begins. If you do not have your own lag free items to wear, feel free to grab the outfit from the notices and wear it.

To keep up to date on the events of the skin fair, you can join the Skin Fair 2013 group. We will be making announcements in that group as well as the Skin Addiction Group. Please copy and paste the following link into your SL browser to join the Skin Fair 2013 group here.

We are looking forward to an amazing skin fair this year and hope to see you there! Doors will open March 15 at 12:01am. The location will be announced at a later time. It is sure to be the event of the year so don’t miss it!

Saturday, March 30 at 4pm – Earth Hour Fashion Show

Hosted by The Amazing Impressions Modeling (AIM), taxi

What is one hour of light worth to you?

Earth Hour was inspired by a demonstration in Sydney, Australia on March 31, 2007, when more than 2.2 million Sydney residents and more than 2,100 businesses switched off lights and non-essential electrical appliances for one hour to make a powerful statement about the leading contributor to global warming: coal-fired electricity.

That single hour accounted for a 10.2 percent reduction in energy consumption across the city. Global icons such as the Sydney Opera House went dark, weddings were held by candlelight, and the world took notice. – What is Earth Hour?

When Dana Yotov started her small project of capturing portraits of those in support of Earth Hour, she did not know how much of an impact it would have in SecondLife (SL). Instead of an expected handful of requests from friends to join in on the pledge, she soon had dozens upon dozens of requests from all over the SL community.

One of those, was Boniefacio. He has volunteered his services in support the cause to help reduce emissions and save our Earth. The Amazing Impressions Modeling (AIM) will be hosting an Earth Hour 2013 Fashion Show on Saturday, March 30th at 4pm SLT.

What designers already confirmed to be participating in this event?

  • Yasum Design
  • Vero Modero
  • Shey
  • sYs Design
  • Vassnia
  • Moondance Boutique
  • MEB
  • Morea Style

  • Liv Glam
  • DotBe
  • KR Designs
  • Innuendo
  • Flor
  • ALB

  • Dulce Secrets
  • Charltina’s
  • Finesmith

Earth Hour 2013 itself will be held across the world on Saturday, March 23rd from 8:30pm to 9:30pm in your own local time. Reduce the air conditioner, turn down the heater, use energy saving bulbs and turn off the lights to do your part to save the Earth every day.

Anyone can apply and doesn’t have to be an experienced model but He/She must be a master stylist capable of creating a look in any scenario. We totally depend on our models to creatively style and BE the character they are portraying in our books, so it is imperative that they are able to style in any fashion. We are looking for unique and creative people who would love to be part of the group for the sake of making fashion art stories. We are not an agency but a group of friends and family who are proud of the work we do to create something beautiful. This will be our only casting for 2013 and we can only hire a couple of models as we try to limit our members so we can provide work for everyone.

This is our latest book.


  1. Follow the styling challenge asked and take a picture (Professional or SnapShot) of the complete look. You must use more than 3 different designers to create your look. Please provide a style card under your flickr pic. Be creative, different and inventive. We want you to be imaginative so don’t be afraid to be dramatic and extraordinary. Think outside the box.

The year is 3045 and the world has scarce resources left. Many fashionable people have resort to using materials and items outside the box. The futuristic Kingdom of STYLISTA is inviting its citizens to attend a grand ball looking for the most stylish to rule the land.

Please style a unique and extraordinary outfit that is VIBRANT, COLORFUL and that is made of a COMBINATION of UNUSUAL ITEMS.
