The One Days

Daffodil
Flapper

When I was little I wanted to be Ann Margaret, I also wanted to be Doris Day, Sophia Loren and most of all Gidget. To be honest, I think I wanted to be all the women of the silver screen, at one time – until I read a book by her housekeeper – I even wanted to be Marilyn Monroe, seriously that book ruined that, I have never been able to enjoy her since reading that book * McSadface. There is just some stuff you should never know about your heroes.

I used to watch a show called Time Tunnel, it also starred the actor that played MoonDoggy in Gidget, probably why I wanted to BE Gidget lol. That is him on the right Click to see . With the items being shown today, I definitely would need a Time Tunnel, with the outfits being from decades apart, but both have definitely been featured in small and large ways ever since, there is one hit wonder fashion, and then there are timeless classics, and both of these looks are classics.

Tres Beau as a store is a bit like that, as I have mentioned before in a past post, the store has been around for many years in SL and with the creations forever flowing, I am sure it will be around for many more. At the moment there is a sale for some items, one which is the gorgeous Daffodil set I picked up earlier today. The items that are on sale are in a separate section, there is a TP board at the entrance to the Main Store, so you cannot get lost.

The Daffodil set comes with the hat, purse and pearls, which adds even more to the outfit, and as you can see I wore the pearls again with the second look. It is such a beautiful full skirted dress and there are other floral prints as well as a divine check I may have to go back for before the sale ends.

The hair I am wearing in that pic is from Magika, the latest Linda hair, so pretty as a ponytail, but with the braided bangs adding a lot more charm to a common style. I am really loving not only the style of hair, but the colours in which Magika does their releases now, they really are enjoyable in their own right.

The second look is the most amazing flapper style dress I have ever seen, RL or SL. Ok well maybe 1920’s styled is more descriptive. The colours and texture are just incredible. It even comes with an adorable cloche hat, which in the picture I am holding, because I wanted to wear the latest hair by Tiny Bird instead of a more traditional kiss curls look. It is called Two Weeks and is one of two styles just released, both are braided and both are so beautifully girly.

If trying to match some shoes to this dress I would look no further than the Ixkin in champagne, the colour works so well with the feathery falls of the dress. I wish I had somewhere to wear this dress too right now, instead of just my posestand, but one day I will dance in it, it is just one of those incredibly beautiful sets you just have to have for the ‘one days’.

Ok story time.

A while ago I got an invite to a fashion show, not so uncommon but the name of the store was so familiar to me. Funnily enough I had been cleaning inventory the day before; and when I came across items from the same store I got all nostalgic.

The invite sat out on display in my house for a week, I did not want to miss the show. The day came and I tpd over and crashed so hard that I couldn’t get back online for a few hours. I was sad I had missed it, but then the next night when with Mel, I was chattering away and a blue drop down appeared – remember my story about Mel and Xstreet – and he said that he saw something he thought I may like.

Not only was the outfit fabulous, but it was created by the designer who’s event I had missed. I was so happy that I swanned around in it all day. Now the background is that many many moons ago, back in August of 2006 a girl I had brought to Second Life had made friends with a very popular then D.J called Arty, and that D.J had a friend that he wanted us to meet, and at that time I was blogging for Appearance Mode.

So we all went to this store, and the creations were all lovely, and elegant and I bought two sets which I went on to blog and really enjoy. Somehow though over the years, I lost touch with that store, but never forgot the really nice time we spent there with Designer Kimmera. It was a fun day, with Arty, Kitty and even Fia came to spend time with us that day.

I am not sure if Challis or Caralyn still exist in her inventory, but they sure do in mine :).

The Divalicious set is gorgeous. The hat is reason enough to buy it, but the fantastic use of system skirt for the sarong, and the high cut swimsuit that is just superb…it all works so elegantly, and would be perfect for walks along the side of a pool at some incredibly expensive resort, because a look like this has to be seen, it’s not for swimming in.
