The End Crowneth the Work

The end crowneth the work” is a quote by Queen Elizabeth I.  I thought it fitting for this next post because the gown I’m showing you today was designed for the new Miss Virtual World 2014, Miss Anjelica Carling. I’ve followed this pageant for several years now and was simply amazed by some of the creativity shown throughout the challenges by the contestants this year. The ladies appeared to reach higher, stand taller, widen their stances to expand well outside the lines of “normal” fashion and too, some even served as inspiration to I’m sure, many a new and seasoned model in the virtual world. I’d like to congratulate all of the ladies who participated in the pageant, you all did beautifully. But a special congratulations goes to our new reigning Miss Virtual World 2014, Anjelica Carling. Well done, Anjelica!

Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend

Did you watch the finale of the Miss Virtual World pageant this year?  I was astonished by the jewelry each Miss wore.  The designers really outdid themselves this year.  One of those designers was Ms. Belle Roussel, owner and designing genius of Chop Zuey Couture Jewelry.  One of my particular favorites is this gorgeous set designed for Miss Virtual World Australia, CottonCandy Teardrop, the Le Voyage de la Terre Australe in platinum.  CottonCandy was a vision on the runway adorned in these breathtaking jewels, and now you too can own this amazing set.  Just released this weekend, Le Voyage de la Terre Australe is available at the Chop Zuey Couture Jewelry main store.  And with Christmas only days away, this would be the perfect gift for a special lady in your life.  After all, diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

Give Me The Fairy Tale

As a little girl I believed quite strongly in fairy tales.  I clung to the Disney movies we all watched as children and secretly (Although my mom says it wasn’t so secret) dreamed that I would some day meet my own Prince.  Back then the fairy tales presented women as almost helpless characters constantly in need of rescue.  As I grew older, I was pleased to see those roles take a turn to show the women not as weak individuals, but women of strength and know how, and most of all courage.   I still believe in fairy tales, just not as much as I once did.  I refuse to grow up or grow old gracefully.  And yes, I believe too, that one day my prince will come.  I’m sure you’re saying to yourself right now “What the heck does this have to do with anything, Saz” but I promise, the pieces will fit soon.

All over the world there are children right now who’s parents are going through hardships.  Little boys and girls who still believe in fairy tales, who believe in the knight in shining armor coming to save the day or… being the prince themselves.  Children who will have little to no Christmas because their parents can’t afford it.  And we can make a difference.  There are so many organizations world wide that help with Christmas for needy families.  Toys for Tots, Make a Wish, Angel Tree, just to name a few.  So please, while you’re out shopping and running around like crazy planning for your own family and friends, take a moment to help a needy child.  Give them the hope that fairy tales can come true.

The Peace On Earth Hunt is still going strong and the designers have really gone out of their way to offer us gifts for the holidays that just make me smile.  Their generosity has been outstanding and it just keeps getting better.  The gown I’m wearing in the picture can be found at stop # 156, Ever An Angel.  The Siochain Gown is a simple yet beautifully textured and crafted gown adorned with snow flakes and lace trim around the neck and wrists.  When I first saw the gown, I just knew it was going to be wonderful.  They’ve even included the makeups I’m wearing.

We’re heading into the final weekend of the Jewelry and Accessory Expo, don’t miss out! Take a few minutes and drop by this weekend, have a look around and pick up a few items from some of grid’s top designers of jewelry and accessories.  Mirja Mills of EMO-tions has designed yet another beautiful set of jewelry, Fairytale, consists of gorgeous earrings and necklace which draps down the back, and is available in dark and light silver.

All Pressed Up In Black and White

Have you made it to the Jewelry and Accessory Expo yet? I know with the season so crazy, lots of parties and gatherings in real life as well as the multitude of events going on across the grid, sometimes it’s difficult to make it to every thing we want. But there’s still time, the expo runs through December 21st! So why not head on over and have a look today?
Emotions, Baboom, [L.Warwick], Digital Eyes, Iconic
Kyra Camel, of Baboom has designed this great limited edition dress, Black Rose. There are only 25 copies of it on the grid to be sold. 20 of those copies can be purchased in world and 5 on the marketplace.  Want something special for a night out on the town this holiday season?  Why not check out Baboom?  I paired this great fan presented by Digital Eyes, also participating in the Jewelry and Accessory Expo, instead of a hand bag. The detail in the print and texturing adds that extra little oomph to the look I wanted to achieve.

Emotions Closeup
As I mentioned, the Jewelry and Accessory Expo is still under way and Mirja Mills of Emotions has once again outdone herself with beautiful and functional jewelry pieces that are a must for your wardrobe. These pearls fit perfectly with the gown, don’t you think?

L.Warwick Siren -Bow Platform Heels
And we can’t forget the shoes! These sexy Bow Platform Heels by L.Warwick are beautifully designed and made to fit SLink medium feet. They come with several options, including baked or materials versions and are a great addition to your ever growing shoe collection. You can find L.Warwick’s Bow Platforms at the Jewelry and Accessory Expo as well.

Shhh…look what I found in the back of Wicca’s Wardrobe!

My favorite model of darkness and partner in all things naughty, Wicca Merlin, has been super busy as of late. Busier than usual. So after feeling neglected for what seemed like ages (so maybe I exaggerate a little), I stomped my feet and demanded a visit. I mean, she never just ignores me that way! I tried ever so hard to find out what she was working on, but you know how Wicca can be when she wants to. She was tight lipped and very secretive about it all. I was flabbergasted! She wouldn’t tell ME, of all people! It isn’t like we aren’t uber close friends! So when she had to run off to help a customer with poses, I did what any good model friend does, of course.  I rummaged through Wicca’s Wardrobe!  And look what I found!!

Wicca Merlin of Wicca’s Wardrobe, along with Malicia Python of Silken Moon, and Dahriel of *PosESioN* Poses have teamed up and formed Crazy Connection, a dream of three friends to have a place where style is forged. Look for some really awesome gifts, like the boots I *coughs* borrowed *coughs* out of Wicca’s Wardrobe, from this trio directly after Christmas.

Getting Ready for the Holidays

Can you feel it? There’s an excitement in the air sort of like electricity charging everyone (especially children) with new life, hopes, and dreams. But that’s real life. Right? Here in SL that excitement is the sound of designers working well into the wee hours of the morning, drinking pot upon pot of coffee or perhaps a bottle or two (maybe three) of wine or some other alcoholic beverage to bring to us all their finest wares, all in time for the Jewelry and Accessory Expo set to open in just two short days. That’s right! TWO days! On December 6th the hard work of some of SL’s finest designers will have paid off as the sim opens up for everyone to enter and shop til they drop.  I’ll be introducing you to two of those hard working designers today.

First off, .Enfant Terrible. has dazzled us with her creative mesh designs as of late and her submissions for the Jewelry and Accessory Expo are no exception.  If you like fur, or all things with a vintage feel, the fur hat and shoulders will be something you want to add to your wardrobe, as well as the vintage ring set, made for the SLink gesture hands.

Finally, Air has designed a pair of glasses that I have absolutely fallen in love with. The level of detail to these specs is amazing and they’re available in gold or silver to suit your taste.  I must confess, I’d not heard of Air prior to the Jewelry and Accessory Expo.  But I’m glad I know of them now.  So take some time and venture into some shops you’ve not heard of during the expo.  I promise, the treasures you find will be well worth the time spent doing so.
