Boardroom Broad

My RL has been filled with board meetings this past week. Daydreaming during the financials (I know that's bad) but I thought about this "Boardroom Broad" look. If I was to attend board meetings in SL, what would I wear?
This look is not too far off from my RL suits ... just minus the red and the fishnets. Kinda laughable is that I have a huge red totebag for my laptop!
Red can be a such a "in your face" statement for any meeting. The color denotes overing powering and strength, but not in a good way. Touches here and there are ok just not full head to toe. Basic black as the highlighted color with just slight hint of red and sexay fishnets give a hint of feminity and flirtyness ... both qualities never seen nor should be seen in board meetings. This is SL after all ... and generally anything goes!

Spring Casual

March can be a crazy weather month, snow and sleet to sunny and warm. To help kick the wintery blues, I've paired cute platforms with basic jeans and a flouncy shirt. I found this shirt in my travels to find spring-like sims. The shirt designer, EMA, who I think is Japanese, which lately these designers have really caught my eye for one reason or another. For the hair, I really prolonged purchasing since it seems like its owned by everyone. I so love it regardless and it was painful not having it in my arsnel of wigs. Today I broke down and ran over to Cake.
Let's chat about this outfit's accessories. Each has an added bonus! The sunglasses are from *booN, which I think is another Japanese designer. They can be worn on the face, chest, and on the hip (shown) *and* the frame color can be changed. Another cute find was at ETD. A recently released bag and is packed with an AO from TorridWear with adorable bag hold poses. Ok ok, enough of my ramblings, here's the details:

Fashion Meets Mob Justice

We all know that behind each avatar is a real live person (got that) and each of us are playing out or into our own fantasies in some sorta way. I was reading and stumbled upon their SL CNN blog. Interesting enough there was a post that stated: "The majority of people that join Second Life like to make the most of their appearance. They may be ‘sweatshirt and jeans’ people in real life ..",
I started thinking how my RL fashion sense drives my SL fashion tastes. The clothes I wear in RL are pretty standard name brand stuff (sorry no cheesey name dropping). In RL, I too drool over some of the higher end name brands like most others ... and even own bags, shoes or apparel from these yummy designers.
The thing for me in SL is that I can easily pickup the latest trends at the "brand name" stores ... we all know the stores with awful lag and potential mayhem when new releases are finally for sale.
Lately I have seen and heard stories of SL designers taking inspiration or even making exact replicas of RL fashion. This is what makes SL that fantasy escapism that we all enjoy!
I've heard of designers getting heat for introducing RL product in SL. Yet, I see blog posts about other designers doing that very thing ... and yet no mobs have gathered outside their stores with pitchforks and torches calling for their demise. Interesting.
Surely I will be attacked for this post ... and so be it!! Its how I'm perceiving the SL fashion world and the so-called "fashionistas". By-the-way, I don't call myself a fashionista ... I'm just a chick prostrate to the SL fashion gods with her lindens in hand!

Press Release: gBay brings auctions to Second Life

gBay is now open at the Givenchi Garment District in Second Life. Residents can take advantage of gBay's exclusive gBox technology to securely auction unused inventory items to the highest bidder.
gBay owners, gBay Destiny, Steve Crowley, and GiveMeABig Oh believe that simple auctions for Second Life residents was a missing part of the Second Life economy. They hope this will allow residents to "clean out their closets" and earn some Lindens along the way.
"For the buyer, its an opportunity to find a designer outfit or some other expensive item for less. Remember, used items in Second Life are as good as new. Things don't wear out," explains gBay Destiny.
gBay's system will not allow residents to resell items unless the resident has transfer permissions on the item. "There are many items that you can not auction because you don't have permissions to transfer the asset to another avatar. We do no want to encourage or facilitate theft," explains Steve Crowley, gBay's chief programmer and owner of Sigma Chi Products.
Similar to other online auction systems, gBay charges a nominal listing fee and takes a commission on the final auction price. Bidders pay at the time of bidding, and are refunded their bids automatically when outbid by another resident eliminating the need for the seller to chase down buyers for payment. When an auction ends, the auction item is automatically delivered to the winning bidder, and payment is sent to the seller.
"We're very excited to bring this type of transaction to Second Life," notes GiveMeABig Oh who is also the owner of Bodies by Oh! To learn more, visit gBay on Givenchi.

Gotta Lub Pink!

Its Monday ... I hate Mondays. I decided to add alittle cheer and do a cute casual easy look using Pink! I tend to buy my jewelry in pink but rarely my clothes. Dark denim is a staple in my inventory. Using a cute bubblegum like pink and dark jeans are a great combo. The EMJ Snowflake necklace adds a hint of glam to what seems like a relaxing outfit. Since Pheobe thinks I only wear black shoes, I added alittle pink fer me feet!!

Skin Fair ... sorta

I made a very lame attempt at attending the Skin Fair. I did it half-heartedly as I'm such a loyal fan of Chai and a few other skin designers that I just adore.
Browsing became more comparing to the skins that I already own. I really didn't see many skins that gave me that "oh I have to buy" and not many that I haven't seen before the Fair. Did I miss those new skins? Maybe... but! I did find a cool "new-to-me"designer.
La Sylphide has some gorgeous skins that I am thinking about purchasing. At the main store, I found this freebie skin and got inspired! If her freebie sparked this outcome, then just maybe I will get a few of her not-so-free skins.

Black Widow

Being alone in SL is nothing new for me ... as I have lost my partner to RL in late October. Sometimes lately its odd being alone not really sure why ... but honestly it triggers my creative side to fill that void. Odd, yes I know, but check out what it produces. I had this idea for a simple elegant gown with minimal accessories that packs a punch.

Sweet Seduction

Challenge word of the day – Seductive. When I think about seductive, the color that comes to mind is red. Red is passionate and sexy. My outfit started with the Bustier Pencil Dress in Crimson by G.L.A.M. To me, there is no sexier dress than a Pencil dress, the way the fabric hugs all your curves. The look was complete with black accents and a pair of open-toed black heels. No seductive outfit would be complete without some sexy lingerie underneath.

Press Release: KMADD Event

The Urban Adventurer. This phrase conjures up a vision of business people, clad in Hugo Boss and Armani suits, making their daily commute through the urban jungle. Wearing their skull and bones messenger bags, they artfully dodge cabs while crossing the street, all the while balancing a Venti Starbucks latte in one hand and the financial paper in the other. Head over to TheZoo Fashion Show on Saturday, March 1, 2008 at 4:00pm SLT and see how SL designer Froddo Beck applies the urban adventure way of thinking to his designs. MAD Agency is producing the show, and KMADD Enterprise CEO Kirk Claymore will be creating the "ode to nature" backdrop.
TheZoo designer Froddo Beck has cornered the market when it comes to the adventurer style. The clothes are simple yet wearable, perfect for the man who wants to ‘blend in’ with his surroundings. As the company tag line says, there is no fur, and the colours are not loud, opting more for more muted earth tones. Stylistically, think of a modern-day Indiana Jones but not costume-y or gimmicky. According to Froddo, “TheZoo is not about printing animal textures on the outfits, it’s about the wild (nature) side of life.”
TheZoo offers high quality clothing, with shirts, jackets, and pants seamless from every view. Images used are 1024px textures, and clothing items are always packaged as a complete adventurer outfit. Whether a true nature adventurer or an urban jungle explorer, any man would find designs from TheZoo a welcome addition to his wardrobe.
DJ Kromus spins the tunes for the after-party at 5:30pm SLT. Close your eyes, let go, and prepare for the adventure of a lifetime!

Review: Bodies by Oh! Shoes

GiveMeABig Oh was so kind to share with me her first phase of her newest shoe design - Dream. She currently has these five different colors and textures for these heels and in two styles - round and pointed toe. Give is a busy lady! She not only designs shoes, but shapes and clothing ... if that wasn't enough she also is the property manager for the Givenchi Garment District.

Review: Whatchama Call It??

Bannock Ogg is always coming up with new and crazy stuff for his tee shirt shop, Whatchama Call It??. When he dropped on my the largest hat I have ever seen it was just on par with his other hysterical creations and tees. Right now his tee shop, the largest and craziest in all of SL, is holding a sale on tees and tattoos. Whatchama Call It?? is the home of the some of the most offensive shirts around - warning - if you are easily offended, Don't Enter! (as his profile states).
