Velut Tempus Gives a Reason to Love

August 26, 2009 at 7:30 pm (1)

“Give me a reason to love you,” she croons as she lies in the moonlight. I’ve always liked strong women in music and literature and find them to be vastly more interesting than the simpering proper kinds. When you want to feel strong and feminine, Velut Tempus is the outfit for you.

Note the gorgeous lace on the knickers

I love the group Portishead and their song “Glory Box” is a perfect match with this sultry outfit: “I’m so tired, of playing/Playing with this bow and arrow/Gonna give my heart away.”

The beautiful Breezy is modeling Eos, a black and white brocade. It comes with a buckle strap timepiece corset, long and short skirts, and matching stockings.  Other colors are Nox (black)  and Amo (dusty red) and they also include a jacket.

Both skirt lengths move wonderfully against your legs. Velut Tempus is versatile  — on the dance floor or on the deck of a pirate ship — you move and command in this outfit.

Velut Tempus is only 550 L$. “For this is the beginning of forever and ever.”

Thank you to the lovely Breezy Carver for modeling and to the ever fantastic PJ Trenton for photographing her. View more of his work at   http://www.flickr.com/photos/pj_trenton

Direct From the Dark Continent

August 19, 2009 at 3:30 am (1) (, )

Sometimes you want to do something different. Explore new worlds, visit places you don’t have the money for in real life.  Naturally, you need the right clothing to help you get into the spirit. Can’t traipse around Africa or Egypt in a ballgown (actually you can, but meh).  To feed your need for exploration,  the ArthurConan Doyle Safari Suite is perfect.

The women’s Safari Suite has a similar version but also comes with long and short skirts and an animal print corset. The pith helmet has retractable mosquito netting.

Thanks to the beautiful and talented Jedburgh30 Dagger for modeling the ladies outfit. My sincere thanks to PJ Trenton for stepping in to model and photograph.

SL Ladies who prefer Victorian, Steampunk, and Western fashion

August 11, 2009 at 3:25 pm (Victorian & Steampunk clothing) (, , )

Allow me to introduce myself:  I am not a builder, designer, or scripter. In fact, I am pretty much without skills in SL, but I am interested in fashion. Ah yes, one of those ladies who read blogs, prowl shops, and ask complete strangers where they got that outfit. Finding a good store, scoring a great looking outfit, and helping others to do the same makes me feel grand. 

Actually, there is more to me than my interest in fashion, but that’s not the point of this blog. Viv makes wonderful clothing, and this blog will highlight some of her  designs.

For those out there who play in nineteenth century sims, you know it’s hard to find clothing that is true to the period yet gives you a unique look. A visit to  Viv Trafalgar Outfitters, located in bustling Port Babbage in the New Babbage sims will be worth your time.

For the elegant female

August 10, 2009 at 2:19 pm (Victorian & Steampunk clothing) (, , )

Lady Ching was a powerful and mysterious privateer and her spirit is reflected in the dresses that bear her name. Notice the embellished silk top with see through panel, the tired skirts, the split prim pants with underslacks. This is an elegant look that you will love.

Colors are South Seas (purple), Chinese Red, Dark of Night, and Lucky Jade. It comes in a ballgown length, shorter, demi skirt length, and tall coat with pants. You can purchase all three different options or just a single look.

The hat is called Clocktoppers and is sold at Viv Trafalgar Outfitters. I will blog later about these hats. Boots are unknown. 

A gracious thank you to Ceejay Writer for modeling and the talented PJ Trenton who photographed her. View more of  PJ’s work at http://www.flickr.com/photos/pj_trenton
