I am wearing the simply stunning gown from Purple Moon called Josephine. This dress skims over every curve and has the most delightful and dramatic flared skirt. It comes complete with the very stylish hat and the texture of the bodice glistens with silver thread.
A very sophisticated dress indeed with long black gloves to complete the drama.

What it is, is that you can change the colors of the eyelashes (from Avion only), hair, jewelry, and lighting (any brand as long as its modifiable) and create wonderful looks and pictures. All you have to do is go to “edit” on your hair or jewelry, go to “content” tab, and drag a script in to it that comes with the HUD you purchase. Once the script is in, you can change the colors to anything! The hair I’m wearing is snow color fromTruth. I added the script, and voila! I am now a cameleon!!! It gives you choices where you can change only the hair color, or only eye lashes color, or you can choose bothand match the colors:)
The picture below with a daisy on it, I have separate colors on hair and eyelashes. The other 3 are match:)
The HUD is amazing and everything is very easy. The only thing that took most time of this entire process, was to adjust the eyelashes, and I’m not done yet!!! I’m not happy with my adjusting so far:( I’ll work on them this weekend even further:)
The eyelashes color change are only available with Avion lashes for now. But they are lovely lashes:) Avion offers several designs and they are pretty amazing designs:)
It also gives you lightning where you can choose various color lights. Itcomes very handy if you are savvy photographer:)
As it is a HUD, you can add walks, poses, sits and everything:)This HUD is approximately $1500L, but it is an amazing little HUD with so much color options!!! To me, it is definitely worth the cost:)

Uma by Purple Moon is a complete ensemble, not only does the the buyer get the dress, stockings and gloves, but also hair and a hair ornament, both of which can be used in another outfit, I know I have been experimenting. It comes in Black and white, and I thought the white would make a lovely wedding dress.
This dress is so sexy, it's offers so much and yet actually reveals practically nothing, all the interesting bits are covered, but you get to see a long leg from underneath the prim piece on the side whilst you walk and it lends it self very well to dance animations, and the flexi movement is very fluid.
I teamed this outfit up with an really old Tuli skin as it had a tattoo on the face, pre-done in the days before the V2. Viewer and hair style from Bijou called Broom, not sure if this is still available either I am afraid. The skin is from Lelutka, London, and my fun chunky shoes are called Fat Lulu, from Perquita, she used have to a discount section on Starlust, which was a hole you fell into, and the shoes were on the walls.
Purple Moon also has a store on Fashionista, dont forget to have to look.

One of the most popular stores on Fashionista is of course Orage. Beautiful well designed clothes that are on the feeds on a daily basis, So I thought I would ask Elettra for an interview which she graciously accepted.
Below is one of my favourite skins from Orage.. I love pink shimmery eyes and soft lips.
Where do you get your inspiration for your designs?
By the real fashion trends and from my fantasy.
There is some controversy regarding dollarbies and freebies, do you think it is beneficial or detrimental to the second life economy.?
I make some dollarbies and freebies regularly I think they're useful but we have to decrease the quality...
You have many beautiful clothes in your store, which is your personal favourite?
There are many favourite dresses I love maybe my Spring Dream, it's a cocktail of elegance and sensuality in a pink dream fabric.
How long on average from concept to store do your designs take you and which medium are you using?
It depends, each dress has its own history.
Which of your designs is the best seller and do you know why it is so popular?
I suppose they're well done (good textures, they fix well) and for their originality. I'm Italian and we have the fashion in our soul.
Of the other designers in second life who do you admire?
I admire the Japanese work on sculpts, it's stunning...
Additonally to the interview I went wandering around her main store and into the skin section, there I found, two skins on super discount, Gala and Georgina only L10 and L25 each.. incredible I have two photos of them below, I was thinking with the glam makeup, that I just needed a seventies disco party to go too and my look would be perfect.
So, if you haven't done it yet, go and check out Orage, so many lovely things and some bargains as well, and the store in Fashionista also has this lovely little wicker summer bag as the gift.

One of the new releases from Cynful is Fluffyness Dress. A wonderful romantic feel to the dress which has three skirt options, you can choose from short, long and extra long. There are also two top options to so you can decide how your outfit looks. I am showing you the dress in white but there are many other colours to choose from.
I have added some earrings from Shade Throne. This is a wonderful store and does very highly detailed accessories. You can always find their pieces add a bit of drama to your outfit as they are not scared to be bold and therefore produce the most delightful items. I am also using a bag from Milk Motion which has its main store on the Cupcakes sim. Another store great for accessories and clothes

I am wearing one of the new releases from OC called Waka Waka. This is a beautiful gown which has a striking zebra print top and leggings with a dramatic semi-sheer over skirt. Stunning creation and wonderfully designed. It is a perfect dress for creating that bit of drama and to get noticed in.
I am also using poses from Agapee which is a new pose shop and is part of the Gabriel group which designs wonderful clothes (it is right next door to the Gabriel new main store). The poses are amazing and some are categorised so you can choose gowns, kimono, photos etc. They are very well done as you would expect and have some really fresh and wonderful ideas. There are also some free ones to pick up, so well worth a visit!

Here is the slide show with Vannie and I.
Tp to Fashionista and grab this dress from Purple Moon and do the hunt while you are there.
