Effortless Summer Dressing – The Maxi Dress

Previously posted at World of virtual fashion – Something New.

LUXE Paris

I don’t know about you but when summer arrives I want quick, easy and comfortable but I still want to look put together and polished. That’s a tough order to fill but the summer maxi dress does it. I reach for it time and time again. A late date? Works great. Dinner out with friends, perfect. A day of shopping, absolutely. Dress down Friday at work, sure why not?  You see what I mean?  This summer I added a stunner to my wardrobe, it’s the Callas Dress by LUXE Paris. It comes in three colors: watermelon, turquoise and navy. The print is interesting and lively, complimented by the cinched waist and deep neckline that acts as a frame for all those fun necklaces! It reminded me of one I saw in the Michael Kors Ready To Wear Collection this season.
I think you will agree I made a good choice. I chose to compliment this gorgeous dress with an equally gorgeous statement piece from Finesmith, which incidentally is having a fantastic sale where much of the store is 50% off. The dress can be found at July’s round of Sneak Peek. Starting on the July 25th it will run until August 5th so plenty of time to still get there.  Shown below in the following order: watermelon, navy and turquoise.

A Garden Party With LUXE Paris

Previously posted at World of virtual fashion – Something New.

As many of you know LUXE Paris is a favorite brand for me and I do enjoy their wonderful clothes. I’ll be bringing you some of their new releases that I find exciting this month starting with this wonderful Burgundy Beam Top & Skirt Set. The skirt is a softly draped maxi in an abstract print that matches the sleeves of the deep v-neck top. The bodice is a bold and graphic handmade texture and works well mixed with the smaller print. I wore it to a party held at the SL Botanical Gardens and I felt elegant and glamorous! I paired it with the lovely Cocoa Island set by Lazuri, which includes this sumptuous hat. The HUD that comes with it allowed me to change the flowers and stones to match my dress bringing the look together nicely. Best of all the outfit is two-pieces which means I could stretch my wardrobe even further by pairing the top with perhaps skinny pants or a pencil skirt or topping the luxurious maxi skirt with a lovely bandeau or halter top. Just one of the reasons I adore LUXE Paris!

ON THE GO WITH LUXE PARIS

Previously posted at World of virtual fashion – Something New.

Paris is one of my most favorite cities and I never pass up a chance to spend time on any Parisian Sim. I’ve been looking for an apartment, something grand, maybe on the left bank but so far I’ve not had any luck finding anything I like as of yet. Not letting that deter me I took some time out to take Snowball, my adorable Maltese out to the park. I got Snowball from the LoLo Pet Shop and he came with a leash, toy and doggy biscuits. He just loves his treats! You can play with him, pet him, feed him, and give him commands. He can roam about the house while I’m gone or he can be set to follow me. While we were both enjoying our walk I couldn’t help but also enjoy the looks I was getting in one of the latest outfits from LUXE Paris. The argyle cropped short-sleeve sweater is paired with slim capris and done in the color scheme of black and grey. Grown up play clothes  that I accented with pops of red in my make-up, jewelry and shoes. Keeping my hairstyle sleek I chose the Chanel Hair by Oleander in the licorice color. I’m loving the comfort of these fabulous Gabi Flats from the Emporium for Slink Flat Feet, makes it easy to chase after Snowball. These very smart earrings from Eternal Jewelry went perfectly as did the snakeskin bangle by Bubble and I love the chevron applier for Slink Hands by Dark Horse Style. Playing around with it I chose to use two colors, highlighting every other nail and I was very satisfied with the outcome.

The Bolero Jacket and Harem Romper in the High Voltage Print by LUXE Paris was also perfect for the trip. The touches of color at the collar, cuffs and waist are made even more vibrant set against the black of the rest of the garment. I slipped it on to head over to the Musée Rodin, one of my most favorite museums in Paris. Like so many others I’m drawn to the gardens, although i spend plenty of time exploring the interior as well. Wandering around at a leisurely pace I look the part of a very fashionable tourist even down to my matching Electric High Heel Sandals also by LUXE Paris. I  accented  the outfit with a fun and whimsical necklace by AlaskaMetro in lime and violet. My hair is  from No.Match and it’s called No Trouble, a very apt name for the gathered high single side braid. After all who wants to fuss with hair when there is so much to see?

Passage to Bangkok

Previously posted at World of virtual fashion – Something New.

Bangkok is definitely on my list of places I want to see. The capital of Thailand with a population of over 6 million, always sounds so exotic and alluring when it’s mentioned. I want to wander through the vibrant streets and take in the ornate shrines, visit the Grand Palace and the sacred Emerald Buddha Temple. The very word Bangkok inspires images of bright colors, exciting locales and interesting people. The new addition to the LaVian collection called Passage to Bangkok is aptly named. An asymmetrical tunic with a loose cowl-neck over high-waist, cropped pants. The HUD provided allows for a nice selection of different color prints. The print colors, in this case I chose deep pink and orange, are just striking against the solid black fabric background. The LaVian Adabelle Pumps go with the outfit perfectly and they come with a 36 color change HUD so you can match everything in your wardrobe. If you aren’t able to get to Bangkok this week then at least get over to LaVian and pick up this exquisite outfit.

LEAN & BOP AT LAVIAN

Previously posted at World of virtual fashion – Something New.

Hello Fellow Fashionistas!

I Hope everyone in the US had a great turkey day! I know I did and as usual ate too much. Now the fun begins with leftovers and the Black Friday Sales. Across the grid there are so many shops putting their merchandise on sale for 40%, 50% or even in some cases 60% off! Today I’m dressed for some serious shopping in LaVian’s Lean & Bop outfit. The daringly cut jacket is very sexy and combined with the high-waist curve hugging pencil skirt it’s completely on trend and very chic. Miss Samantha Jones gives us as usual, her very generous HUD, allowing 36 color changes for both the jacket and skirt. You can mix and match to your heart’s content! I chose to wear it in basic black today, maybe because I’m feeling very shopping ninja-ish! I added the Sam Ankle Boots by LaVian as well, stylish and comfy, they are the perfect shoe for a marathon shopping spree and lucky for us they also come with a 36 color change HUD allowing for a perfect match no matter what color outfit you choose to wear.  I’m also wearing a short, no-nonsense hairstyle by Dura which shows off the Paris Earrings I added by Glow Designs. I love the perfect miniaturized Eiffel Towers in black and how they swing from my ears. Best of all it’s a subtle way of stating my sympathy and prayers are still with the people of that great city and all they are going through. It makes me especially grateful this Thanksgiving for all that I have including the wonderful followers and readers of my blog. Thank you everyone and Happy Black Friday!

WINTER HOLIDAY WITH LUXE PARIS

Previously posted at World of virtual fashion – Something New.

Well the holidays are upon us and LUXE Paris is making sure we have plenty of great things to wear. I’m wearing an outfit called Animal Chic featuring slim fitting pants, a crop top, this wonderfully textured jacket and boots. With everything included in this set you are ready in moments and out the door, off to the next holiday activity. I wore this fantastic outfit while exploring the Winter Holiday Village, a great sim set up with all manner of festive activities including building a snowman, having a snowball fight and ice skating. I was wandering around the walking paths and stumbled on my two new buddies shown in the picture. I think they liked my new outfit don’t you?
