Poised

Today I bring you more fashionable treats from the world of Second Life. Now that we're a week into 2014, it's time to expand our horizons and meet new designers.

A lacy bodice flows into a flowery mermaid gown for the Poised dress from Lyrical B!zarre Templates. I had the pleasure of meeting this new designer through my Finesmith Break the Ice event last month. Known for making mesh templates, she has expanded into the world of fashion with her work.

Also, take note of my Long Baroque nails. Nice, right? They are from my friend Kathrin Dassin of Moondance Boutique. She specializes in exquisite and unique nail art for both regular and SLink hands. She even created nails for a few of the Miss Virtual World 2014 contestants so check out her salon if you're in the mood for a manicure.

BOM in Wonderland

So about almost a year ago, some blogger was chatting up her designer friend regarding a Korean music video and the glorious fashions to be seen in it. She sent her a link and two weeks later, this friend entered the Realm of No Return. Luckily this strange new place had an interesting effect on the designer as she created many clothes inspired by Korean pop artists.

The design I'm wearing is part of the Missing You collection from Loovus Dzevavor and is named after one of the members of the group 2NE1. Called Bom, the coat reflects the whimsical nature of its namesake with a pattern twisting vines and golden leaves. A houndstooth bow adorns the high collar of this coat, giving it an extra touch of aegyo (Korean word that applies to all things cute) without going overboard. I styled it up with butterflies from Boom and hair from Eaters Coma.
