    FaMESHed and Culture Shock

    Two events starting this week. The first has already started in the form of FaMESHed. It started today actually and will run until the 21st of May. Nineteen Designers with Mesh exclusives for the event,so for all you die hard fans of these designers who cannot wait until the 3 weeks is over, run now and get your fix, all items are of course MESH.

    The other event, is the annual Culture Shock event. The event starts on the 4th of May, and has 184 stores participating . The event is helping to raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières . This is the second year they are fundraising for this charity and all items with the special vendors at the event will be donating either 50% or 100% of the price during the event, so shop until you drop 🙂 .

    I have chosen a few pieces from each event for todays post, the first is the Dade Slacks from Celoe. These are their special colour exclusive for FaMESHed, and I am a huge fan of the pants in general but this colour just makes me mmmm with yummy sounds. The pants are actually a part of a ‘look of the month’ from Mayfair designers, from Celoe and Mon Tissu, so there are shoes and a top also to be grabbed in complimentary colours. I went with the black version of the same shoes, these flats as I said the other day are just delightful to slip on and go about your day, and they added the right touch of balance to the look. The top I am wearing is from Somnia and is one of the items at Culture Shock, a lovely feminine shirt that comes in a variety of colours and contrasting trim.

    Another great item from Culture Shock is the bag from Ricielli, this cowhide tote is over-sized and beautiful and comes in a colour perfect for the pants. I can see these totes getting a lot of use in the coming warmer weather months. Another two items from FaMESHed are the gorgeous necklaces I have on, and the beautiful new hair from Exile. Firstly the necklace in Gold are exclusive to the event, and so stunning, if you are a fishy/ocean lover of all things Nautical like me, this will have you swooning. The seahorse is incredibly detailed, I actually have a silver cast pendant almost identical in RL but on a much shorter fob, but this one has not only the long strand but also a combination with pearl and starfish details. Then of course you have the separate strands and so on, everything from Maxi’s is MUST HAVE so just get everything.

    The other Must Have is the Hair from Exile, this adorable style is lovely with the loose braids and those banging bangs – lol that was just fun to type – I really like these bangs a lot, I need more of them thank you Kavar :P. Lastly and as the hair frames the face, you will see the NEW Gaby skin from Deetalez.

    Gaby as shown in the regular pack has 5 make ups, freckles with regular and dark in normal or extreme – I love all variations, the freckles are WIN! There are also cleavage options, nail covers for wearing with prim nails. There are also bushy brows, different shadow liners in two options as shown in the trio pick.  You also get a shape, eyes, alpha for baring your teeth and everything on every layer it can come, such as tattoos or clothing layers, for things such as the nail covers or cleavage.

    The Gaby Skin Special – shown in the trio pic – is a special for Culture Shock, and at a great price, with all the added features of the regular pack with one single skin so DEMO DEMO DEMO.

    Mixing some old favourites with some incredible new items. Clothing, footwear, and stunning accessories, most of the new items are MESH, and it really is a testament to how enriched our Second Life is becoming with the addition of this to the grid. While speaking of Mesh it is definitely time to mark your calendars with FaMESHed about to start on May 1st. Cracked and Vanity Mirror the team behind the label Cracked Mirror are bringing designers together under the one roof to share their Mesh items with the public.

    This event will be monthly, running for three of the four weeks of each month. The idea is that you will be able to get a taste of different creations in the one spot, so that you may come for one or two known to you designers, and stay for all. Much like what is done with the big annual events in Second Life. The first list of Designers participating in this event is definitely a great one, so be sure to visit and grab as many demos as you can, then explore further visiting their main stores and seeing the quality extend even further.

    The older items in this post and ageless in my opinion are the beautiful tops from League, I love the colour combinations they allowed for in these colours, and they fit in really well with the slim lines of the Pencil skirts from Maitreya, beautiful mesh figure hugging high waisted skirts. Following the legs downwards you can see the newish shoes from Redgrave. Those familiar with Kalnins shoes will recognise immediately that they are created by him, due to the very specific type hud used to not only tint the feet but also change the colours of the shoes. While I really like the work done on these shoes, I do wish that the choices of colours to choose from where a little more varied, much like other colour packs you can get from other stores. But either way, as i have said before, for some reason the colours that are available from shoe to shoe, always seem to tied in with the overall colour scheme I am doing for that particular post…bloggers fate.

    The Jewelry is all new and is from Maxi Gossamer, beautiful Mesh items that are just a must have. First off the oversized rings, they actually come in two sizes, but you can resize them as well, also they have texture change options allowing for silver or gold and a huge range of stone colours. The necklaces I am wearing are all part of just one set, allowing for wearing of individual strands of type, or wearing the combined all at once on only one attachment, these options are definitely what make Maxi Gossamer Jewelry stand out as superb in not only looks but also in quality and quantity.

    The last new accessory, is the belt from Izzies. The belt is also Mesh and is fit so beautifully to the hips. There are a great range of colours and also the belt comes with a resize option as it is not rigged, so easier to fit to any shape. I really love wearing it over the pencil skirt, as it just adds a little something something to the look overall.

    Silhouette

    Second Life allows everyone to dress anyway they like, whether it be casual, fantasy or formal, there are no real limitations on how we can express ourselves with fashion. I once met a man in Second Life – a customer at one of my previous jobs – he was buying a suit from me, and explained that in RL he wore overalls and jeans everyday as he was a builder…but in Second Life he only wore suits, that for him the ability to dress up was his escape from RL and that he always longed for the past where Men and Women would dress up a lot more often.

    This Lilani gown by Rebel Hope Designs makes me think of those past decades, its style and details are very stylish and 1930′s inspiring silhouette wise. It definitely makes for a very glamorous look, and with the added sexy factor that Lilani has with the plunged back, and the collared neckline, then draping down very close to the breasts, which reveal at the sides, but still keep that sense of seeing but not seeing illusion.

    Wow what a day, it is 3pm for me, and I feel like I got nothing done. A few pictures at least but then I had issues with software and stuff, so lots of fun with that, not. I did get to as I said take a few pictures at least, and I really love how they turned out. I hope you do too.

    The lingerie was a recent release from Zaara, and the pieces come with additional layers packed neatly. There are three types of colour ranges to choose from, I am featuring one from the classic range and one from the spring range, but everything in between is also just lovely to wear.
