Biker Chic Autism Awareness Event

Autism affects approximately 1 in every 150 children.  It is a group of complex developmental brain disorders that creates difficulties in social interactions, verbal and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors. It can include learning disabilities, difficulties with motor coordination, and attention and physical health issues. The Autism Awareness event April 19th through the 21st brings awareness to this issue effecting many of our children today, and helps to raise funds, bringing together a host of entertainers and sponsors for you to visit during this weekend event. Please see the website for more info. http://autismawarenesslightingtheway.wordpress.com/what-is-autism/

Style like the model you are – MVW Day 1

Some of you know from previous posts that even though I’ve been modeling awhile, with the switch to Nyree, she needed her own credentials.  So I sent her back to school, selecting Amici Modeling Agency and Academy and also Miss Virtual World Academy.  I figured, between the two of them, if there was anything I didn’t know already, my “I’s” would be dotted and my “T’s” crossed by the time I graduated from both of them.  Friday was Day 1 of the highly anticipated and sometimes feared MVW 105 with Frolic.

I had heard many horror stories, not the least of which was that Frolic could make you cry, so naturally I had a few slight jitters upon arrival.  Despite that, I went in with an open mind,  because I very much wanted to learn, grow, and improve.  I believe Frolic’s candidness, even if a bit harsh at times, is in fact, why his critiques are so valid.  He plainly knows the industry and we need to understand that we won’t be coddled when we are out in the big sea of SL fashion.

We were asked to style in a fashion that represented the type of model we believe we are.  Since my style is trendy/casual, but with a dash of class and glamour,  I chose Kimmera Madison’s new mesh dress, Faces, with its bold colors and country club hat to die for.

This is how I imagine Audrey Hepburn might dress if she had been born in the current day and age, still looking iconic, but at the same time trendy and modern.  To create this look, I focused on an inter-play of primary colors with black accents for a touch of classic with a bit of pop.

On Day 1, Frolic said I looked like a model (yay! and brow wipe), and that he could tell I watch current RL fashion trends (woot…research is never in vain), although he felt my lips looked like they’d been stung by bees and were much too exaggerated.   So, I am gratified with the results of this first round, have taken his suggestions to heart, and my lips are getting a mini makeover for the next day.  Guess I will have to rely on lipstick for a pouty look going forward, but will keep you posted on whether the new lip shape gets the nod on Day 2.

Happy Summer…Happy Summer Separates

Today is the longest day of the year for the Northern Hemisphere and the official start of summer.  So, happy summer to you all, and…happy summertime separates.  It is time for brights and lights, beginning with silky mesh Baila pants from Blueberry.  Available in solids and a variety of prints, these are flow-with-you pants that are casual enough to layer over your favorite bathing suit or silky top, like my Oasis Champagne Silk from AngelWing. Combined with a short-sleeved sweater from elly, and you should stay comfortable even with a breeze off the water.

Also catching the breeze is my summertime jewelry, including this wood and metal Wild necklace from LaGyo, and Lush Limited’s Geometry shutter earrings in cool shades of blue and green.  The  earrings remind me of Asian lattice-work,  and the set includes the silver nose stud to add just a touch of exotic to any outfit.  The Geometry set is on sale now at the Fashion Cache through Friday the 22nd.   Lush has also revamped their flagship store with many new seasonal offerings, so take the Lush Limited taxi to have a look at all their new goodies.

Avril – the full package tied with a bow

Sometimes you run across an outfit that needs no embellishment, and accessories would only detract from the beauty that is already there.  I fell in love with Avril in White from RFyre for this very reason.  The embellishment is in the layers of white silk, the sheer chiffon blouse that covers without covering the skin, the gentle twining of the embroidered vines along the front and back, and the cherry red bow on the standup collar. 

This outfit is 3 outfits in one, one of the hallmarks you see often with RFyre outfits, which means, you get multiple wear options.  Wear the blouse and skirt alone, or with the leggings; or forgo the skirt and wear just the pants and blouse.

You may also choose with or without bow, but I couldn’t resist wearing the bright red bow.  It is like the cherry on top of the sundae.  It is just the right accessory, really…the only one you need, and what caught my eye to begin in this sea of shimmery white.  This outfit is the full package all tied up with a bow.
