Penumbra Fashion Week [Fall/Winter ’14]

The colors are in, sewing machines running on overtime and the stage is prepped for one of SL’s biggest weeks- Fashion Week! The Fall/Winter 2014 line of clothing and accessories is set to make it’s debut down the runway starting tomorrow with a jam packed schedule spread out over the next ten days. Fashion shows, performances, parties and all the glitz and glamour of the fashion industry is upon us. You don’t want to miss out!

For the first of many new items I am wearing this week, I decided to continue my trend in pants with new items from LushbyCoCo. The Riveted Collection includes a line of pants, tucked blouses, blazers skirts and cozy winter coats, perfect for every winter fashionista. I paired these bright cobalt pants with other eye catching colors from the fall/winter 2014 pantone, as well as Thea Tote by Liv-Glam for Secret Wednesday.

Glam it Up

If there were ever two more hardworking and lovable designers in Second Life, it would have to be Samantha Jones and Kim Lysette from Liv-Glam. (And you too, Aisha! ♥) With the daily events they’ve got going on- from Chic La Mode, Steals&Deals, Designer Circle, Designers Showcase, Fashion Limited, Fi Fridays, Secret Wednesdays and not to mention the loads of sales and every day new releases- who can doubt that these ladies absolutely rock the fashion circuit?

I’ve seriously given up hope on ever blogging just one Liv-Glam or K Collection ensemble anymore. There are just too many great new releases each week to be able to choose just one. So, this week I’ve narrowed it down from dozens (seriously, dozens!) of new releases, to five of my top favorites. I even bribed Dwight to get in on the action. Doesn’t he look smexy?

In addition to all of the new clothes, Sam has also released two new fabulous pairs of mesh heals. These shoes are great, come in dozens on color choices and are a steal at only $L275! You can find them inworld at the Liv-Glam Boutique, but hurry before it’s too late!

Bizarre

With so much going on in the Second Life world of events, sales and fairs, it is almost impossible to keep up! After receiving the honor of blogging for The Hottie Cooterati Experience and finally integrating myself in, I am better able to get back to some regular posting on the home front!

These highwaist shorts with hive texturing at the bottom from Shi were just too cute to pass up. They are available at Limited Bazaar and though I am often too late to get to the limited quantities of items before they are sold out, I was lucky enough to grab these up before they were gone!

Also huge this month was the Arcade and with only a few hours left before it officially closes (until June) I just had to sneak in one last shout out with the Epaulette Set from Gizza.

Last but not least is Pose Fair! Definitely one of my dream events! ♥ There are so many great new releases from some of Second Life’s top pose creators that you don’t want to miss this! I was at Just Visiting and really loved playing around with poses from oOo Studio and Picture This!. Pose Fair runs until April 14th, so you still have plenty of time to stop on by and snatch up some of the great deals available to us!

Petals in the Wind

Even though the weather is getting slightly cooler outside, at least where I live, I am hard-pressed to give up the warmth of summer- and the clothes. I saw the Ritika Mazi dress by Zaara from the Cinema 2012 event, and I just had to have it! The pretty floral pattern over crisp white is perfect for those last warm days of summer.

With the fresh feel of the dress, I knew I wanted to keep the rest of my look simple, so I decided to wear my hair down and go with the Breathe Me hairstyle, a new release from Exile. I went with the Natural Fusion color pack and I have to say how impressed I am with the new faded haircolors/styles that designers have been coming out with lately. I think it really adds another dimension to already great [mesh] hair.

Since the length of the hair is long, which I love, I didn’t want to wear anything that could easily be hidden by it, so I opted for the Hamptons Necklace and Cube Ring from LaGyo, whose jewelry and accessories never fail to amaze me.

My Outfit –

Zaara – Ritika Mazi Dress (mesh) (ocean)

Exile – Breathe Me (mesh) (leather)

LaGyo – Hamptons Necklace & Cube Ring

SLink – Mesh Hands (mesh) (relax r & casual l) & Womens Barefeet (mesh) & Illena Sandals (mesh)

cheLLe – Undereye Shadows (blue)
