~Sascha’s, Zibska, ZOZ, Chop Zuey, Ikon~

Just a quickie post today to highlight new releases from some of my favorite places in SL.  The truth is, I have a LOT of favorite places in SL.  There are so many truly talented individuals creating content in our virtual world…I love being able to wear and show each person’s amazing work.

This dress Otille, from Sascha’s Designs, is not yet released…but get ready…it won’t be long!  I absolutely love the textures Sascha uses…she’s been designing gorgeous clothing for a long time and she knows what she is doing with textures.  I’m wearing the Bronze and Red colors, but I also saw White, Gold, Blue, Sand, Champagne, Mauve, Pink, Moss, Peach, Hot Oil, Purple and Rose; so plenty of options to choose from!

~Sascha's, Zibska, ZOZ, Chop Zuey, Ikon~

Zibska just released these fabulous Plelone shoes that come with a color changing HUD for the shoe and the studs; they are Slink high foot compatible.  My fabulous Slink nail appliers are the Romantic Sparks polish from -{ZOZ}-.

~Noa at Enchanted Photopia~

While checking in on Facebook today, I saw this great youtube video posted for Enchanted Photopia.  I watched the entire video and was so inspired by it, I knew I had to go explore the place further.  What an incredibly magical place, full of vignettes featuring familiar animated movie characters and scenes.  Trust me, that description does not do this wonderful place justice.  At the very least watch the video…but it is very much worth the visit!

Enchanted Photopia was the perfect backdrop to try to capture my fun outfit; featuring the Noa dress from Sascha’s Designs.  The Noa dress is the latest release form Sascha’s…you have the choice of purchasing three separate HUDs and each has a choice of six different dress textures. I will show all three HUDs below.  The dress texture I am wearing in the first photo is from the Noa No.2 HUD…I really love the Sugar Skull feel of the graphic.
~Noa at Enchanted Photopia~

The Noa No.1 HUD has stripes, plaids, florals and paisleys…a great mixture with choices suitable for any occasion.
SAS - Noa No. 1 Dress

The Noa No. 2 HUD features Candy Skull designs that would be great for creating a very Retro Rocker or Kawaii look.
SAS - Noa No. 2 Dress

The Noa No. 3 HUD has a mixture of florals, plaid, a plain white and a celestial looking black pattern; a great mix to suit any style mood.
SAS - Noa No. 3 Dress

I styled my look a little more on the Kawaii side and chose the Sunday Hair (Rainbows) from+Spellbound+,  MARYJANE Wedges (Romance) from Reign, the {Turquoise} necklace and bangles from Ariskea (previously available for purchase at the 21 event), the Tiger lily ring from MG-Maxis Gossamer, and my fabulous nail appliers are from the new Romantic Sparks polish collection by ZOZ!  My incredible Immortal Eyes are the latest mesh eye release from Ikon…these eyes are just amazing!

~Embracing the Ice Queen Teaser~

I LOVE those moments when you are just chatting with someone and they say “Would you like to see my latest creation?”!!  Ummm…let me think about that…hell yes!  It is one of the many things I absolutely adore about Sascha Frangilli, owner/creator of Sascha’s Designs…only one, mind you, because she is simply one of the most fun, caring, creative and generous people I’ve met in SL.  She is just sooo spontaneous…and a conversation with her will leave you laughing till it hurts and loaded down with gifts of her incredible designs!!

So, even though it is not yet released, here is her latest creation…the Embrace IceQueen Christmas Gown.
Snapshot_012PM5

I am NOT doing this dress nearly the justice it deserves.  In the pic I am wearing only one of several skirt options (the grande skirt).  I am also wearing both the breast feather decoration and the shoulder feather decoration; each piece is individual so you can wear one decoration on just one side.  The feather head piece can be substituted with her amazing Halo; which is a large multipointed star that halos the back of the head and shoulders. There is also a ruffled collar piece if you do not want to wear the feather decorations.

The hair is booN DES423 hair black with the booN gathered mid hairbase, the skin is – Jadis- Natural Clean (a) from Glam Affair and the gorgeous necklace and earring set is the Silvester set (white) from Alienbear Designs.
If you’d like to see the dress…I will be wearing it all weekend at the Weekend of Art & Fashion Event at The Beguiled Art Gallery & Studio…stop by and take a peek before it is released!

While you are wandering the grounds and admiring the art…you can also pick up two exclusive gowns from Sascha’s Designs…available ONLY at this event for the weekend!!

Happy Birthday/Rez Day Sascha Frangilli!!!

The first week of December marks the Birthday AND Rez day of the inimitable Ms. Sascha Frangilli, designer and owner of Sascha’s Designs; or, as most people know her, the self appointed Queen of Farts.  To celebrate Sascha has designed this stunning Rachel dress in Blush (part mesh) and, true to her amazing generous spirit, she is making it FREE for everyone in her group!  BUT, you must wait until November 24 for it.
Happy Birthday Sascha!!

I feel truly blessed to call Sas a friend; unfortunately, we’re both so hellaciously busy that we don’t get to connect very often.  She keeps me laughing my fanny off and she can always count on my candor. So the other day I messaged her and, while we were chatting, she passed this gorgeous creation to me.
Happy Birthday Sascha!!
When I put this gown on, I practically fell through the floor of my studio!  The soft blush colored, curve hugging, ruched mesh sheath is delicately adorned with sakura petals. I immediately knew I had to blog it….and I knew the perfect place to photograph it; The Beguiled: Art Gallery and Studio.  I paired the dress with the equally stunning Steph II hair, a Where is the Concert Hunt 2 item, from *Alice Project*, and the gorgeous Romance set, a previous group gift, from Virtual Impressions.
Happy Birthday Sascha!!
Mark November 24 on your calendars ladies, because you will want to be at Sascha’s when she releases this dress to celebrate her special day(s).

Happy Birthday Queen of Farts!! <3<3

She’s an aDORKable D!va in her Sascha’s…

aDORKable D!va in Sascha's

Shhhhhhh don’t tell Sascha…but I am previewing her November Member Group Gift…it is 50L to join her group, Sascha’s Designs…but she does that to keep the spammers out AND she makes it worth your lindens to join!!  Once you become a member you have access to an amazing array of previous monthly group gifts.  Sascha is also very generous with her members…with impromptu sales and 60L weekends…not to mention you usually get several skirt & top options in each dress you buy along with whatever accessories she has created for that gown/outfit (yes she does create more than just those gorgeous gowns). This monthly gown comes with the FrubbelDubbel (hey I didn’t name it!) skirt you see and you will also have the options to purchase the extra skirt styles.  Trust me…they are worth it!
aDORKable D!va in Sascha's

I scored more fabulously free items with two more group gifts!!  The adorable Norma hair in Ruby is from D!va and it comes with a Bat Wing option…just in time for that haunting holiday coming just around the corner.  Norma is a group member gift but the group is free to join AND membership gives you access to lots of more pretty previous member group gifts….that is just all kinds of awesome.  The gorgeous peach and white diamond necklace is part of the Romance Set from Virtual Impressions (previous group gift/free to join)…Chrissy designs wonderful jewelry and she generously puts one of her designs out for her members to grab every month.  In addition to the monthly group gift…Virtual Impressions features other items at fabulous sale prices throughout the month.

My oh-so-enchanting pose is from aDORKable Poses.  It isn’t free (200L)…BUT you get four beautiful poses and the petals to wear for taking equally enchanting pictures of yourself in your Sascha’s gowns.   When you purchase your aDORKable poses at the inworld store you automatically bank 10% of the purchase price, as store credit, to put toward future store purchases….group membership NOT required!  I purchased some of my poses at her Marketplace store and had a few minor issues that ADORKable graciously and promptly rectified.

My shoes, skin, eyes and eyelashes were also not free but I shall list the details below.

The pics were shot on location at the Virtual Impressions landing point.

So what are you waiting for…go grab these fantastic freebies and get all gussied up…you deserve it <3<3
