Paris Metro and Artistry

Paris Metro has released three new gowns in conjunction with the Wildflower Summer Sale. The gowns I am showing are not the sale gowns, you will find those marked throughout the store. First, the Universal Love Gown. This one is heaven for the girl who is in love with twinkles and sparkles, and the ultimate coolness is the revolving universe on the necklace and bracelet from Artistry by E. I couldn’t capture the revolving in the photo, but believe me. Cool. And magical, and fairytale….need I go on?

Also released are the Golden Galaxy and the Teal Galaxy, gorgeous form-fitting gowns that employ subtle color variation and gradient to provide depth and richness. Endra Graves has created jewelry sets to accompany each gown and they are only available at Paris Metro.

    I never wear gowns, but you look so pretty in these… perhaps I should reconsider!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Chartreuse

I have some people to thank today. First of all to Banjo Baily for coming up with a bottle of Chartreuse liqueur in about 12 hours flat. Anytime you need beautiful alcoholic beverage bottles, Banjo is your guy!

Second, to Bruce. Bruce didn’t expect to have to model this week, much less have to model twice. My second model fell through and Bruce had to be putting up with me yelling at him about his hair on two separate avis. Bruce is probably waiting for the day that I talk to him about something other than modeling for me, and sadly today was not the day. You are a true friend, Bruce. So without further ado you have Bruce 1 as Jay Gatsby on the left and Bruce 2 as Nick Carraway on the right. Alas, Daisy would not fit in the picture. Now this novel reference may bring up torturous tenth-grade English class memories for some of you, but set it aside for a moment and just appreciate the Chartreuse! Now I’ve never tried it, but apparently it is a very lovely and complicated liqueur to make. You can get a general idea about it here.

“Finally we came to Gatsby’s own apartment, a bedroom and a bath, and an Adam study, where we sat down and drank a glass of some Chartreuse he took from a cupboard in the wall.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Zoe

I have to admit that when I saw this new release from Agnes Finney I had mixed feelings. One the one hand, it’s so adorable! The polka dots are so cheery and match my pearl earrings from Endra Graves. On the other hand, my first thought was, “what a cute outfit to wear back to school!” Whereupon I promptly decided I was crazy because it’s not time to go back to school yet, is it? Is it?!?!?

So instead I will go out for a lovely walk on this nice breezy summer day.

    Cute! I know…hard to believe it’s almost that time of year again. Where did the summer go?

Dark Lady

Black is not my favorite color but I do like it and sometimes you really are in the mood for it. Well today I was in the mood for it, and what’s more, AvaGardner Kungler made me fall in love with black via her new Raica dress and it was my favorite of all the colors available. Kia Goodliffe serendipitously released Jennifer, a medium long hairstyle that pairs perfectly with this stunning gown.

    You look spectacular! Love your new shape.

Small Changes

Sometimes it’s a bit much to make a big change in life, work, or whatever—even fashion!  It’s good in a place like SL that has so much variety to switch it up from time to time. Whether you tend to be a baby steps kind of person, as I definitely am when it comes to SL fashion, or someone who likes to radically change from day to day, there is a beauty about the variety and possibility that is out there. Today I am wearing a new shape from Beauty Code called Hailey, which is available for 70L at the Designers Circle this week. I like how it fills out my skin and softens my face. Also new today are new releases from Truth Hawks and Chris Lodenwald. This short hairstyle is adorable (and more importantly stays out of the way of the poofy ruffles on my top!)  My jewelry today is by the talented Endra Graves and somehow has every color I am wearing in it! And as always, I appreciate Ikon Innovia’s ability to create a life-like and light-spilling effect in his eye designs.

See? Change is good. I’ll just keep telling myself that.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Jazzberry

This was not a tough week to come up with in concept, but in execution almost proved to be the unhinging of my mind. My friend Stewart (my color inspiration guru—don’t ya just wish you had one too?) mentioned a great jazz piece called Unsquare Dance by Dave Brubeck. Let’s just pretend that I and my friends are capable of playing such a tune! Check it out below!

I am in a somewhat musical jam myself, having about 15 pages of Brahms left to memorize  before Sunday, so my efforts this week were a bit rushed.

So yeah, the curtain LOOKED jazzberry until I actually punched in the code for a background color….oh, well.

I saw the picture of this dress at Meiling Couture and loved the flowers down the back so much that I just had to have it. This is the kind of dress that probably weighs a ton—I imagine this is one you would need help getting into and out of. But oh, how beautiful!
