Little Bit City, Little Bit Country.

country 2


city
Eyelet lace in teardropped ruffles, paired with a see through dolly blouse and a soft cashmere sweater of taupe with just a hint of pink ....simplicity in perfection.

country

Other than the fact that no matter what I did today SL fought me (and won) in that no matter what I tried I could not get the feet skin to change colours. In defense of the shoes, I also got booted 80 gazillion times, and it took me 40 gazillion of those times to put the skirt on .. fun fun fun .... tomorrow I am going to find a sharp stick and poke my eye out with it ... just to try and keep up with today's excitement. I finally gave up and posted the pics and will pray for your indulgence and fervernt prayers. If you must IM me to point out the mismatched colour please draw a picture to include ... so I have something to look at while you take me to task - oh and home baked cookies would be good too!! Just don't blame the shoes - they have always been perfect before AND when I first put them on they were perfect .... it is that Linden guy ... write to him ... and hey ... don't bother with the cookies or picture .. just take him to task... tell him he ruined my pics and that you were all aghast when you saw them. Act aghast ... act really really really aghast .... be profoundly aghast ... and when you figure out what that means ... im me ... I get lonely ....

Brocade and Jewels.

Borcade Jewels 1

Borcade Jewels 3

Brocade and Jewels by Donna Flora is one of her new releases. There probably are not enough adjectives to do this woman's work justice and this dress is just so beautiful - the colours, the jewelled strap with matching earrings ... so incredibly exquisite. She has such an eye for colour and textures and style that once you are bitten by the Donna Flora bug - you just can't quit.

Blue's Impossible Dream!

Blue's Impossible Dream 3

Blue's Impossible Dream 2

A tribute to Neko’s. I do not understand the interest but admire the difference. I do not understand the fashion completely but am willing to dabble. A really good friend, whose mind I admire greatly, chose Neko from amongst the miriad of possibilities. This is partly for him, partly out of respect for that which I do not know, and a stab at making a little bit of Neko my style!!

E! Eclectic!

E!Eclectic

E! Eclectic Apparel is a fairly new store by Eclectic Wingtips. In her own words:

"e! is a resonably small, but growing store with a collection of clothing and accessories for men and women. I have a philosphy of creating quality reasonably priced clothing and accessories which are accessable to all. For that reason most individual colours of items are under 70L."

You can see there is a variety of items available - with lots of color and wearing options. The store itself has a little bit of everything and true to her word, everything is reasonably priced. Check it out!!

It's Canary Yellow And I Am Singing!!

Total Betty Dahlia James 1

Total Betty Dhalia James 2

My first little sports car was canary yellow – I wanted it because it was something completely different from the reds and black and whites everyone else had at the time. That has always been my mantra – do something different – even with a school uniform – find a way to make it different. This yellow just spoke to me ... think it said something like .. "Hey Bliss, you beautiful fashionista you .... dummy!! BUY ME!!"

There is something about bright yellow that just brightens your day and I like the little kicky extras on this dress – the big bow, the buttons …. Nothing else to do but add a great pair of earrings and some great heels and you are set to go.

Love the skin I picked up at Cybernetics – for just $1L!! They are having a great sale!

RunoRuno

RunoRuno 4

RunoRuno 3

RunoRuno

RunoRuno2

RunoRuno1

RunoRuno 5

RunoRuno 6

A friend insisted I take a look at RunoRuno. He obviously has a good eye for talent and I thank him for the tip.

It is a palette of black and white, basic shapes held onto the body with buckles and ties. She takes the simplicity of Asian influence and pairs it with the buckles seen more on gothic pieces but there are no hard edges here – only beautiful, falling softness that speaks of a woman. Many of her designs hold that same understated beauty of a woman in a man's shirt the morning after, there is a sensuality that is understated and in no need of any staging. Several of the pieces encourage the exposed breast but it is an unapologetic theme that works with her designs..

She has some variations… a school girl look, the lace …. not a huge inventory but all of it interesting. You have to really look at her pieces to appreciate the thought that has gone into them. Almost everything in the shop is $50L. The fitting of some of the pieces may take some time, but the result is worth it. She has a couple of 3 piece sets that invite you to play and explore the medium – which in this case is her fashion. Very unique and refreshing – well worth a look.

DivaLicious Indeed!!

League Skins Kate -"cry" adds a nice touch and with the A&A hair you get a kind of sex kitten Brigitte Bardot look. (yes that is how SHE spells her name despite everyone else going for "Bridgette")

Green with Ivalde.

Ivalde is having a half price sale and I fell in love with this stained glass green version of their Kathy dress. It reminds me the type of cotton dress you throw on to go shopping when it is just too hot and you still want to look pretty.

I love the new hair by CriCri and while I was there to check out some of their new styles with hats I picked up this uni-sex style that seems perfect for summers end.

Keep All Your Wishes in A Box.

wishbox

WishBox had this cute dress with lost of variations that ranges from dolly to school girl with an attitude to sexy mama. It is sort of a “dirlama.” The “drink me” bottle in the pocket should not be confused with Alice In Wonderland .. that is pure Whiskey!!

I paired it with the most amazing shoes. Ann Otoole is a talented, spirited, funny, feisty woman who has lots to say worth listening to and her store Unique N is a must visit. Everything she does has thought behind it and you see that immediately in her designs. These shoes contain the opening notes to “Smoke on the Water” by deep purple. The heels are actual guitars and you have colour choices. I liked her shoes and bought a few pairs but there is much much more than shoes. I do have to encourage you to read her profile – I loved the poetry/songs? Interesting lady!!

It's a Donna Flora Kind Of Day.

Gisella Peach 6

Gisella Peach 5

It’s a Donna Flora kind of day today and who wouldn’t feel like a princess in this captivating explosions of peach and cream toile, organza and netting. The sheer delicate fabric and the flowers is just unbelievably beautiful. I adore this outfit. I find Donna Flora to be simply amazing – her sense of fashion is impeccable and every piece I own from her is detailed to the max. I used her earrings and shoes to complete the look.

Wrapped In Iradescence.

blue 2

BareRose is the author of this gauzy dream of iridescent blue. It also comes in copper and pink - all included in your purchase of $149L. It has to be one of the best features of BareRose - no need to choose either quantity or quality - you get it both.

blue

When a dress is this elegantly beautiful - there is no need to do much more than just add a kick ass pair of heels - which I did - both add them and kick ass. (I can't tell you whose ass I kicked but if you see any avi's limping around SL - you could ask ....)

blue 3

I love the detail with the jewelled buttons catching the stiff gauzed shoulder wraps both front and back, matched again in the belt catches, and smaller versions in the cuffs for the wrists. Simply stunning!!

DRESS: BareRose - ::: B@R ::: Ribbolver - $140L
EARRINGS: Ora Trea Designs - Essence Earrings - Unknown
SHOES: Stiletto Moody– d’Orsay (Black Patent) - $1099L

Chinatown No9 Is Super Fine!

chinatown 3

chinatown 4

Just a kiss of blue and a hint of green on this lovely dress from Orquidea called Chinatown No9. It is just one of several colour options and provides a soft subtle approach to the traditional dress. I love it – and wearing it today I got stopped 3 times and asked about it. Whoot!!

chinatown 2

I paired it with the perfect matching shoes from the queen of matching – Lemania!! Shiny Things had a great set of earrings and a bracelet and I was set to go.

PeCosspper your Glockienspiels!!

Cossper 2

This cross between a Cossack costume and Sgt Pepper type Band Uniform leads to what I fondly refer to in the fashion genre of which I am an outstanding contributing fashionista ( hey in my mind I can be anything I want even despite RL information to the contrary) … I refer to as the “PeCosspper” look. I think it is a fantastic social statement about ... um ... the "underratedness" of glockenspiels. AND if I could have found a glockenspiel … I woulda’ been a glockin’ and a spielin’ in this pic just so you could fully appreciate the versatility of the uniform. This outfit comes with a choice of pants, capris or mini skirt and is really a great ensemble and for $1L COME ON PEOPLE!!!!

Cossper 3

NOW the BOOTS!!!! I tried these on expecting the usual – things on the end of your feet perfectly formed for the mafia to fill with cement and throw you over into the water - cause that is how most boots fit me on here. Please don’t IM me with all the notecards on how to resize them, I have already glue gunned and laminated the ones I have to make lovely coasters for Christmas gifts. Let me put it this way:

BEFORE resizing – boot looking cement receptacles on the end of my legs all ready for the cement.
AFTER resizing – big black blob cement receptacles on the end of my legs suggesting a retard did this

These boots resize in amazing ways that even remedial resizers can handle BUT they fit me perfectly from the go. It is hard to explain to the non-SL world why you are whooting an hollering when they don’t speak SL-ease and fail to appreciate the joy of actual fitting boots. They have this smexy zipper running up the back that I spent all day running after people asking if they wanted to undo my zipper … no takers ….

To say I love these would be an understatement – the fact that Bax Coen has now taken out a restraining order and banned me from her store may explain the depth of my feelings … AND there are many different boots to choose from …. a virtual cornucopia of excellent boots. I slept in mine.

Cossper

In keeping with my over enthusiastic botherings of SL designers – I have also taken to stalking Undo Hermano of Shade Throne, who in addition to making my favourite hair as seen here http://bliss-imo.blogspot.com/2009/08/by-fire.html ...makes jewellery that is in keeping with my need to be larger than life. She has all these great packages in her shop right now where you get the earrings and a variety of matching bracelets etc for $100L each. My only complaint is that Linden does not allow for 83 bracelets on one arm which is another look I am crafting called “mucho bracelttos” or “yes my arm is dragging on the ground what the hell are you looking at??” – whichever you prefer!!

BOOTS: Bax Coen Designs – BAX Prestige Boots - $875L
OUTFIT: XTC Designs - !XTC! Demi- $1L
