Where Fashion Is Too Good To Be An Obsession

FASHION: Solange

~*~ Solange ~*~
~*~ Designer:  Solange Cerveau ~*~

Ok, so this post is behind schedule.  However, it is also the first post with THIS MANY PICTURES!!!  OMG, over 30 outfits I photographed and that wasn’t even everything in my inventory!

Why so many?  Because I loooooove what Solange creates!  And I own most of it because she throws awesome sales – most of my collection was obtained during a 100L sale.

What is so great about Solange?  Versatility.  Creativity.  Vitality.  There is such variety in what she offers.  And yes, you will see fantasy outfits and you will see a lot of silks.  But you have to think outside the box!  Don’t just sit there and think you  have to be collared to enjoy these creations.  Silks are HELLA sexy and are a great way to tease your partner! 

And every outfit I put on from Solange feels so bright and so alive.  Very vibrant.  It’s just a fun place to shop!

So here we go, the amazing onslaught of picture goodness featuring the awesome designs of Solange Cerveau!

BLOG:  Solange - Trouble, Slave to Fashion

BLOG:  Solange - Shalenas, Sophia Silk

Definitely have to start with a display of skin flaunting goodies!  Don’t these look like just yummy?  The top two are the most fun for me!  Trouble is just as it sounds……trouble! 😀  Slave for Fashion should be a must have for every blogger to where whilst shopping so as to easily identify each other!  But from the fun at the top, you have such soft and sexy yumminess in Shalenas and Sophia.  So pretty.

BLOG:  Solange - Sassy, Tequila Pant Set, Sassy Dots

BLOG:  Solange - Tequila, Sweet, Candy

Girlie goodness! Lotsa skirts and flirty tops! OMG, love it!  Sassy and Sassy Dots are among Solange’s latest releases and I am loving the subtle texture work on them.  I love the detailing on the top of the Tequila skirt and pants.  Sweet is just a comfy and cute outfit.  I think I wore it for almost a month when I first got it.  Candy….yummmmmy!  Is that not sexy or what?

BLOG:  Solange - Petalwing, Amore 2.0, Romance

BLOG:  Solange - Slide, Dare, Mademoiselle

Some softness….some sexiness.  Petalwing, Amore 2.0 and Romance are beautiful pieces for you to share with your loved one…or ones….or hell, just pamper yourself with them!  Slide is a great dress for those nights you just wanna shake your money maker.  Dare is one of my top faves, mainly because I just love how the top looks.  Great texture.  Mademoiselle has some great depth to it, with the detailing of the corset and the sculpted wrist cuffs.

BLOG:  Solange - Fiesta, Aphrodisia, Devotion

BLOG:  Solange - Infatuation, Elan, Missy

Fiesta is my most favoritest piece from Solange yet.   It’s just…wow.  Even though it’s labeled as a silk, I could so easily wear this on a beach.  It’s just soooo pretty.  Aphrodisia is tintable as well as Infatuation, so you color freaks can go nuts!  Elan is so something I would wear in RL.  That’s just uber comfiness for me.  Missy is way cute and I love the sweater texturing.  Devotion is like THE goddess silk.  You either feel like a princess or a goddess in it.  The prim work is amazing and is all together a fantastic piece.

BLOG:  Solange - Daydream, Highland Hipbanger, Saturday

BLOG:  Solange - Devotion, Because, Allure

This section is entitled “The Short and the Long of It”. LOL yeah, I’m getting punchy and my humor is warped to begin with!  Daydream is demure and pretty while Saturday is elegant and sexy.  Highland Hipbanger….this is just a fun outfit!  It’s like…Braveheart meets Dominatrix…I think…or something like that lol!  I dunno, but I’m loving it!  Devotion, Because and Allure are all cute little dresses, great staples for any wardrobe.

BLOG:  Solange - Tequila, Whiskey, BOOM

BLOG:  Solange - Elegance & Peacock

Remember I said I photographed a whole lot?  Yeah, I didn’t realize I photographed Tequila Sweater Set twice in two different colors until I uploaded to Flickr.  So shush.  Whiskey is a cool night out outfit.  The lace skirt is uber cute and the layering effect on the top is great.   BOOM is a flirty dress that comes in so many different colors, you can probably find one to match your favorite pair of shoes.  Back to some skin showing, Elegance is just that….an elegant piece of lingerie.  At first I didn’t think I’d like the tail piece, but it grew on me and actually adds depth to the whole outfit.  The Peacock Silk (despite what you might think the name would imply) is very simple and elegant.  The gold edging texture makes it stand out.

BLOG:  Solange - Butterfly

Butterfly had to be by itself. It’s just a creation unto itself.  I don’t care what your feeling are towards silk or fantasy or anything.  But there is no way you can put on this piece…..and NOT like it…and just stare it in awe.  That’s all I have to say.  Go ahead and stare for a little bit before reading on.

So there you have it.  All the variety and uniqueness that is Solange.  I dare you to go there and not find at least three outfits that you don’t immediately grab up and buy.

But remember….I’m broke.  So…..I won’t owe you anything if you try to be a smartass and not buy three.   So shush again.

FASHION: Indyra Originals

~*~ Indyra Originals ~*~
~*~ Designer:  Indyra Seigo ~*~

To get the train rolling ahead, I hit up my inventory for the goodness that is Indyra Originals.  At the hand of its namesake – Indyra Seigo – I.O. (yeah, I’m a lazy bish lol) boasts funky fresh fashions with an eye for detail.  I have been an I.O. customer from my newbie days wayyyyyyy back in late 2006, early 2007.  I have seen it grown and develop into a well rounded offering of fashion for those who want to stand out and be seen to those who just want to be sexy for their loved ones.

Indyra puts her talents to great work here, using prims and sculpties to bring her ideas to virtual life. She has come a long way from the early days and has cemented herself as an established and talented designer in the SL Fashion world.

So enough of the verbiage.  Let’s go drool over some clothes, shall we?

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - Kaegan & Bon Charme

Great timing on this release as I was just about to hit post when Indyra sent this down the pipeline. Her newest release for July, the Bon Charme Jacket is my favorite of the three. The details on it are amazing, down to the chains and jewelry prims. Resizeable, so have no fear of spending your hard earned Lindens to have to sit there for hours on end trying to stretch and pull each part to make it fit your avie. The cowl-neck is way sexy…..always a plus to tease in a little bewbage.  The jacket, top and shorts are all available in a variety of colors, so mix and match to your heart’s content.

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - J'aime, Nuvella, Marina

I think this may be my favorite outfit for a while. It’s just too friggin hawt. The J’aime Jeans are offered in three washes: Black, Brown and Blue. So just pick your favorite wash and match it with the J’aime Tank you like, and you’re set to go. Oh, and the tank comes in a see-through option as well! 😀 I love the Marina Belt. Resizeable and the texture is just amazing. And what girl can’t use some funky silver hoops? Love ’em!

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - Urban Agenda: Leo, Halcion, Armada

Again, one of the many things I love of I.O. is how the details make the outfits. Prim and sculpted pieces give outfits such depth in a virtual world. The flexi pieces of the Leo top, the collar and shoulder pieces of Halcion, and the collar on Armada….small things that just bring such a depth to an outfit. Wonderful.

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - C'est Facile, Davenport, Fairfield Prep

These go from innocent to sweet to ahem…naughty! C’est Facile is simple yet elegant. The detail on the sculpted piece of the top just makes the whole thing. Davenport keeps it sweet and I love the arm piece. Fairfield Prep is just a nauuuughty outfit! You can even buy a matching skirt to give everyone a little show! 😀

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - Milana, Princesa, Joya

If I liked wearing dresses in RL, I would sooo wear Milana. It’s simple and pretty. Princesa was acquired at the Fashion Expo in 2008. And Indyra still has it in her store offerings! It’s just funky freshness. What I love on Joya is the flexi front ruffleage. Again, depth is what makes it real!

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - SoCal, L'Ardent, Celeste

SoCal is a great outfit for the clubs or a night out. A little midriff never hurt anyone! 😀 The L’Ardent dress is just spectacular. The detailing on the designs of the flexi is great. I paired it with the Celeste Jeweled Collar, which does not appear to be offered anymore (I swear I looked Indyra!! I even used Emerald Search). But it’s a great piece of jewelry to have.

This is merely a miniscule offering of what Indyra Originals has.  I didn’t even show any of the shoes!!!  But you need to just go and see for yourself.  I’m sure you will find at least one or two outfits you will love…or three….or four or five……
