A Marriage of Design and Beauty

The Marriage of Design and Beauty

“A thing of beauty is a joy forever.”~ John Keats

The Marriage of Design and Beauty

Monica Outlander, always known for her creativity and fun in SL, has announced the Miamai Luxe Scavenger Hunt, and I have been given the auspicious honor of being one of the bloggers who will be supplying a hint for you. While I won’t just give you the question and answer, I will give you many hints photographically and textually.

This is how it works: The first three people who answer all the questions on the website and submit a notecard to Shae Sixpence will win the entire Luxe Collection, including all the shoes you see in these photos. Every single one for your virtual tootsies. How can you not try?

The Marriage of Design and Beauty

This is all in honor of the release of Monica Outlander’s new spring collection at Miamai, the Luxe Collection, which includes shoes from her partner, Pill Kanto.  With this “reception,” I wanted to point out how Monica’s work is a marriage of design and beauty and for this collection, it’s a romantic assemblage of the sensual qualities of fabric and clothing with softly-colored, spring textures. The blouse drapes and balloons around the waist, the skirt flows in billows of heavy luxurious fabric. The pieces are mix-n-match so you can wear them with other pieces in the collection or potentially with other creators’ work.

The Marriage of Design and Beauty

As for our reception, what better place than the Nash Conservatory at Kew Gardens, which Barnesworth Anubis has so faithfully replicated with his Classic Conservatory, which is being sold at Collabor88 this round. The building is perfect for concerts, parties and wedding receptions, as you can see here. I festooned the windows with Maxwell Graf’s mesh drapes and hung Tya Fallingbridge’s gorgeous chandeliers, which she is selling at the Home Show. Froukje Hoorenbeek’s bistro table and vases are perfect for dinner.

The Marriage of Design and Beauty

That being said, if you look closely, each table has three pairs of shoes, one from each of Pill Kanto’s three different collections, at each table. (All the tables are shown in the photo with all the shoes Pill will be selling, hint hint hint. And yes, they are heavy on style AND land impact I found out, so put them on your feet, not on your land.)

The Marriage of Design and Beauty

The Seasons Story opened yesterday to great applause and lag so take your time before you run over. It’s open through the end of the month (I think—no dates to be found). Aida Ewing is offering a set of skins derived from her popular new Brandi series, delicate and otherworldly. I top the look with a wavy ‘do from Bubbles Clawtooth and accessorize with gorgeous pieces from Maizon Rayna and a pretty ring from Allegory Malaprop.

Check out these other bloggers’ entries for the other hints:

The Maiden

13 03 2014

The Maiden

“Come o’er the sea,
Maiden with me,
Mine through the sunshine, storms and snows;
Seasons may roll,
But the true soul
Burns the same, where’er it goes.”
~ Thomas Moore

The Maiden

I felt like a maiden from a storybook fantasy tale today. It’s probably because of this glorious new mesh dress from Monica Outlander, which comes in a number of colors, but all have the peacock feather insets in the skirt and at the bodice. With her gorgeously drawn shadows, Monica makes a simple mesh silhouette seem complex and lush, tailored with dart seams and insets.

The Maiden

There’s another reason I feel like a fair maiden, and that’s because of the skin I am wearing today. Jade Glazner is releasing this beautiful new skin at Skin Fair 2014. Freya comes in six tones with four brow options and two different cleavage options. Jade is also selling all the standard appliers separately for the skin. She will also be offering a set of dark glossy lipsticks as a gift in her store. (I wore the green for the full-length photos but stripped it off for the close up so you could see the skin in its delicate glory).

My long maiden locks are Tabata Jewell’s newest contribution to the grid. With storybook length and beautiful face-framing qualities, this hair, which comes with one of Tabata’s clever texture-changing HUDs, makes this maiden even fairer.

The Maiden

“In beauty of face no maiden ever equaled her. It was the radiance of an opium-dream – an airy and spirit-lifting vision more wildly divine than the fantasies which hovered about the slumbering souls of the daughters of Delos.”
― Edgar Allan Poe,
Ligeia

Deep in the Woods

29 01 2014

Deep in the Woods

“Alas for those girls who’ve refused the truth: The sweetest tongue has the sharpest tooth.” ― Jack Zipes, Little Red Riding Hood and Other Classic French Fairy Tales

Deep in the Woods

Enchantment, which is opening on February 1, will be an event taking as its theme “Little Red Riding Hood.” You’d think it would be an event full of baskets and capes, and while there are plenty of those, there is also an undercurrent of resistance to a story of a lovely little girl being tricked by a wolf. First, much of the clothing is less for a little girl and more for a woman, like this gorgeous gown by Monica Outlander. Now, I am not surprised Monica upends the tale of a sweet little girl by turning her into a sophisticated vamp—Monica is never satisfied with the status quo. Her gorgeous Blanchette gown evokes the sleek beauty of its namesake, Cate Blanchett. Monica imbues Little Red Riding Hood with something else with this hooded gown.

Deep in the Woods

Amanda Randall imagines the wolf less as a threat than an accessory with her posing wolf at Enchantment. With six darling poses, you can go from long lean model to besties with the wolf. Maybe “my such big eyes you have” could become friendship or true love….

Then you have Isabeau Baragula’s evocative accessories—bowed Mary Janes and w wearable wolf mask that goes over the face or on top of the head. Is LRRH the victim or the sheep hiding in wolf’s clothing? I love how the headpiece looks as a sort of perverse tiara. Isabeau also sells a horned chair with several great poses, the bowed branch draped with silk (color-change, of course) and a mounted wolf’s head. I think the wolf is in big trouble in Isabeau’s version of Little Red Riding Hood.

Deep in the Woods

Finally, Nina Helix made an exclusive skin for this event—a vamped up Red Riding Hood, and it comes with all the appliers you could need. With dark eyes and a deep deep red matte lip, heavy brows and a very romantic face, this is not your traditional skin. When I first put it on, I had to get used to it but once I paired it with Keiba’s dark eyes, I was enchanted, especially with one of Truth Hawk’s newest hairs in black. Watch out, Wolf, Little Red Riding Hood is out to get you!

Deep in the Woods

“This one day her mother gave her
a basket of wine and cake
to take to her grandmother
because she was ill.
Wine and cake?
Where’s the aspirin? The penicillin?
Where’s the fruit juice?
Peter Rabbit got camomile tea.
But wine and cake it was.”
― Anne Sexton, Transformations

An Orchid in the Snow

22 12 2013

An Orchid in the Snow

“The snow doesn’t give a soft white damn whom it touches.” ~ E.E. Cummings

An Orchid in the Snow

Monica Outlander recently put on a fashion show of epic proportions with some of her newest Black Label fashions on display. I was not able to go but I understand it was quite something and I am not surprised, because when Monica thinks, she thinks grandly and with sweeping creativity and beauty. She invited many people to participate in The Golden Thread, her show, and asked people to make artistic photos using her Black Label Fashions. I did one for the show but it’s not PG enough for the blog, so you can see it here.

One of the most beautiful pieces from the show was this dress, Shae, which is an absolutely gorgeous mesh assemblage with materials features (see the sheen on the bottom). In this gown, Monica brings romanticism to the modern by using mesh to create folds of brocade and satin and sheer taffeta in a pile up of gorgeous materials. Each detail—from the bead-decorated bodice to the buttons running down the corset to the flowers adorning the hips is attended to with loving care. This is how haute couture is supposed to work—a celebration of the senses and shapes. Monica outdid herself and truly produced a work of art.

An Orchid in the Snow

The dress suits this new skin from Rocketta Haven. Yes, I showed it yesterday but I have to show it again today because I am absolutely smitten. The delicacy of this skin, the gentle features, the romance of the look deserves more than just a glance. Even the hands are lovely (featuring a nail applier from Sasy Scarborough perfect for the holidays). My side swept hair is MissAllSunday Lemon’s newest release, an almost wind-blown style that echoes the drama of Monica’s dress.

Purple Rain

15 09 2013

Purple Rain

I never meant to cause you any sorrow.
I never meant to cause you any pain.
I only wanted to one time see you laughing.
I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain.

~ “Purple Rain” by Prince

Purple Rain

I felt a little melancholy today so I put together this lovely purple look to boost my look and then someone reminded me of that beautiful wistful song by Prince, Purple Rain. Monica Outlander has recently come out with a new gown set which is simple to wear (just two system pieces and two prim parts) but oh-so-lovely. Monica has not given up on the beauty of flexi prims for a full romantic gown, especially since she can do system pieces so well.

Purple Rain

I get the privilege of sharing with you a new hair designer—Pollen. She has just started out on Marketplace, and she already shows promise. Completely mesh hair,  this ‘do includes a HUD for changing the tones of the hair and the flowers in the hair. And this piece comes with a free necklace, which matches the flowers in the hair. The side bun is romantic, especially with the optional flowers.

pollen hud

Aida Ewing’s newest skin, Angelica, is the perfect look for this almost ethereal amethyst ensemble. With the lightest of brows for the blonde skin, a gorgeous blush and subtle, glossed lips, this new set will be a welcome addition for Glam Affair lovers and skin wearers around the grid.

Purple Rain

I only wanted to see you underneath the purple rain.

Dress

26 07 2011

Top Rail

Put on that dress
I’m going out dancing
Starting off red
Clean and sparkling he’ll see me
Music playing make it dreamy for dancing
Must be a way that i can dress to please him
It’s hard to walk in the dress, it’s not easy
I’m spilling over like a heavy loaded fruit tree

If you put it on
If you put it on

~ Dress by P.J. Harvey

Top Rail

If you put it on, will he notice? I am guessing in this dress from monica Outlander, there is a good chance he will. When we dress up to get a lovers’ attention or just attention, what do we focus on? Some people think it’s all about showing some skin. I think it’s about showing something less overt—the curve and sway of a feminine body, the very subtle cultural cues—a slit up the leg, an open back. Monica’s dress quite effortlessly achieves this.

Top Rail

My skin is another glorious example of Gala Phoenix’s newest releases, a beautiful soft skin with an underlying sensuality and a fresh freckled countenance. I have been resorting to overlying the dark brows from the Chic series on her skins—I really want a darker brow when I wear dark hair.

And my dark hair is a beautiful sensuous style from Queue Marlowe’s latest line. I think this style really has that sort of Mary Louise Parker look to it—loose curls flowing down in a sexy silhouette.

Katniss

9 07 2011

Katniss

I have been reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins this week, as recommended to me by my pal, Bram Ellison. Set in the post apocalyptic world of the North America, a country called Panem, our heroine, Katniss, is a participant and survivor, with her District 12 associate, Peeta, of the Hunger Games, a televised survival game between children chosen from each of the 12 districts of Panem to fight to the death to prove that even children are not beyond the reach of the Capital, the existing power. Pressured by President Snow after a seeming act of defiance in surviving the Hunger Games, Katniss is coerced into pretending to love Peeta. This ensemble and reading the book inspired me to create a narrative from Katniss’ perspective. She is being dressed for the night before her wedding to Peeta; the intent is to bring romance to the Hunger Games for the television audience.

Katniss

Effie wakes me from a nightmare-filled nap that afternoon. “Rise and shine!” she chirps cheerily. “Tonight Caesar Flickerman will be interviewing you and Peeta, and then they will be filming you in a romantic dance. You have to look your most alluring for Peeta.”

After Flavius, Venia and Octavius have done their usual magic of converting me from Seam denizen to glamorous victor (always an arduous task for all of us despite their careless gossip and chatter), Cinna eases my dress over my head. Blooming a deep burgundy into a glittering purple hem, the dress swooshes around me almost airlessly despite the heaviness and richness of the fabric. The bodice leaves my shoulders exposed above a blossom of fabric, and Cinna dusts them with a subtle glitter. “This deep purple is the color of royalty but also of passion,” he explains to me. “It represents your love for Peeta. He should not be able to resist nor will the audience.”

Katniss

He smiles at me as he pushes feathers into my updo, dotting my hair with diamonds. “These feathers represent a bird in flight, Katniss.” I know he means the mockingjay, and I realize then that Cinna fully supports our dissent as well and that this is his very subtle message. I feel a renewed conviction about what we are about to do.

Cinna dabs his fingers into a jar of dark makeup. “I am going to do a different sort of look tonight,” he explains, as he applies the makeup in streaks around my eyes, covering the black eye Haymitch accidentally gave me in training. “We will say it’s a romantic mask.” I look in the mirror and what I see in the makeup are tears, the tears I want to shed for the other victors, who will die, the tears I want to shed for Gale and Prim and my mother, but mostly the tears I want to shed for Peeta and myself. He presses the mockingjay pin into my hand and I curl my fingers around it.

I put on a brave smile and walk through the tunnels to the arena.

Katniss

“The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.” ~ Katniss in “Catching Fire,” the second book in “The Hunger Games” series by Suzanne Collins

Golden Treasure

13 05 2011

I love putting together a totally fantastical look, one that is monochrome and stylized. There is no deep meaning behind this—just a satisfaction in finding a set of items that represent one of the hardest textures in SL to show–gold—in amazing ways.

Golden Treasure

I start with a swimsuit from monica Outlander’s early summer set of swimsuits and beachwear. The “Prue” is a great set—a bikini top with a thong and a nice little pareo to hide your bum. Monica has the sheen of the material and that bright golden color locked down perfectly. My shoes are great little prim toe shoes from Babette Ultsch that have a great gold texture (she also has a great silver pair).

Golden Treasure

My skin is the newest from Aida Ewing, a sunkissed beauty with a beautiful glow and sheen to the skin and lips and delectable make up. I really like this new set, which is being offered at the Skin and Shape Expo, because it shows a lot more depth and skill. Aida’s improving with each skin she makes and is starting to dominate the skin world. My golden brown hair is a Mirja Mills special color, which I love seeing because it’s so unique in SL. My earrings are grandiose affairs from Cora Lu’s newest line for Paper Couture and my luscious golden eyes are from Ikon Innovia.

Golden Treasure

Not all that blings is gold.

Stone Rollin’

11 05 2011

Fat lady shakin’, backbone breakin’ (come on)
(This girl of mine)
Everything she’s got is movin and hot (come on)
(This girl of mine)…

You don’t call her fat but that girl is stacked
(she’s got my mind)
Everything is wide–she walk with much pride
(she’s got my mind)

There was no way to prepare
Nothing I could see
All I saw was a woman
Walking up to me

~ Stone Rollin’ by Raphael Saadiq

Stone Rollin

There’s a song I have been hearing on KCRW for a few months that finally got released so I can link to it. I have wanted to blog this song for a long time because this is the woman I know a lot of us are, and I know a lot of men love.

I have dressed myself up in a dangerously short dress (to show those great legs) from Monica Outlander. A fuller woman can pull this look off quite well—she has the assets to make a dress like this look hot. Kalnin’s shows, with their versatile HUD, which includes colorways for skin, nails, and the shoes themselves and a full menu for resizing makes this look easy to finish.

Stone Rollin

My shape is from Xme Xue, who produces beautiful sexy full-figured avatars for women who want to be more than stick thin. What’s brilliant is that Hart Larsson’s newest skin, Gaia, fits perfectly over this sexy shape. I wore his skin in V2.6 so I could pile on the layers—hairbase, eyes, and lips—to make this sexy and sultry look. Wild curly hair from DBS Heart completes me.

Stone Rollin

I say, Booty Woman, you turn me loose.
I need to go home, I can’t stand your moves.
You see your high heels are killin’ me
It’s like your bad ass thighs are shakin’ me. (oh yeah)
