[Cliche] – not at all a cliche…

Happy New Year to you all out there! As many of you know one of the people who came closest to me in Second Life during the years is Bety Dudek. We worked together in the LOOK Elite Models Agency during the years and she is probably the best stylist I know in Second Life. I can´t remember seeing her a single time when she didn´t put an outstanding effort into her look. No matter when, she is always making my jaw drop. For a while Bety now been working with the shoe brand [Cliche] by the very talented Atila Blackmountain as their general manager besides being the Production Director of LOOK Elite and also the agencies Academy Director.

Bety brought her knowledge about fashion and trends to [Cliche] and mixed with Atila Blackmountain and his great skills they have made a very promising team for the future. I only say, watch out! And for those who followed my blogging and also seen the new designers that the agency LOOK Elite scouted during the years, you know that you should take this information seriously…today I´m giving you one example of a new release from [Cliche]. It is the “Pilar” boots and with these you get boots that you can wear for both casual and elegance. The other items worn in the post of today is an outfit from Gawk!, the hair from Sadistic Hacker and the jewelry from !Stars. The poses are from Diesel.

coldLogic in Christmas Colours!

The Christmas is closing in rapidly and I´m still alive in spite of some people telling us that today is the last day on earth…:) It takes more to stop me from blogging I tell you:) Today I will let those of you who still didn´t hear of the amazing design brand coldLogic get to know it a little better. I stumbled over this brand a few months ago and it has specialised in mesh-clothing entirely. Maybe that is why the mesh design quality and the fitting of the coldLogic products is top of the line?

Cause if you ask me there are few brands in SL that can keep up with coldLogic when we speak these values. I take you for a (sleigh-) ride around some of items in the coldLogic design line and I have chosen, as I´m getting into a Christmas mood these days, a selection in the colours of Christmas. The pictures today are taken in the “Christmas Sim” owned by Tupac Redstar. A sim dedicated to Christmas all-together and you can find everything from mesh-Santas to sexy Elf-costumes there.

The jewelry theme today is from !Stars jewelry production by Stargem Winkler and all the poses from “Diesel”!  A special word about the shoes: My dear friend and colleague Bety Dudek is the general manager of the recent and raising star on the SL – shoe – sky; [Cliche] by Atila Blackmountain. When I got the “Siesta” ones a while back I immediately fell in love with them and I´m using them all the time now. The detail is amazing and they are reasonably priced. A must – have for every girl with a desire to look good in SL!

You can have a look at them in the blog post of today and I strongly recommend a visit to the [Cliche] – store at Marketplace and have a look for yourself! Now let us have a look at what coldLogic has to offer! 

The first outfit is a combination of two items, the top is named “Segel” and is a really nice, cosy creation that blends in just fine with the capri´s I chose to wear it with, the “Duke” – capris. Something that can be worn in both casual and more elegant Christmas - party’s to come! The hair worn here is the “Claude” from Sadistic Hacker.

The next outfit is an elegant and stylish dress that would be the perfect choice if you want to impress that special someone now during Christmas. It is named “London” and here presented in the scarlet version. The soft flow of the fabric is astonishing and again, it fits like a glove when you get it on. coldLogic offers a wide variety of sizes which contributes to the cause of letting the customer have the choice in how to look out there. The hair is from BooN and the stockings worn from the hands of my old friends Nando Korobase and Gina Beaumont at Angel Dessous.

As a finale we will look at another beautiful dress named “Wood”. This lovely dress got a separate mesh belt which adds up to a perfect combination signalling style, elegance but the nice and body close fitting also makes it sexy in a tasteful way. Again I chose to wear hair from BooN!

And with this I end the blog post which will be my last for the year 2012. I thank you all for showing me appreciation and support and I look forward to the new year and what it can bring when it comes to new innovations in Second Life fashion and in Second Life overall. I wish you all a Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Ingenue! – Fashion With A Past!

Hello again all of you fashion lovers out there! It´s time for another look into what SL has to offer when it comes to design and I wish to thank those of you who keep sending me suggestions about designers that could be interesting to give a closer look, I appreciate it very much and it makes it so much more fun to blog. Sadly my time is limited because of a RL promotion I had a while ago. I had more money because of it but also a lot more work:) I will do what I can to keep up with the hints and requests I get.

Today we are going to have a look at the design line of Ingenue and the designer Betty Doyle. This brand been active since 2007 and it uses the business motto “Fashion With A Past”. The design got a personal style and even it keeps up with time it has a nice touch and lots of influences from the 30´s, 40´s, 50´s and 60´s. The designer works with hand drawn textures and original mesh and also produces shoes and jewelry. Let us look into three different outfits from Ingenue:

The first one is put together with a top and pants. The top is the “Zoe” in cherry and I added the Ingenue necklace, “Jubilee” as a nice addition. The pants are the “Seberg” ones and I chose to wear a version in camel. All together this sums up into a sexy but stylish composition that could be worn in a lot of different occasions. The hair worn here is from a favourite hair design brand of mine, Sadistic Hacker. All poses in today’s blog post are from EverGlow.

We move on to the next outfit. This is a dress named “Falling Autumn” and this is something I really love wearing. A noble and elegant creation but as it´s so body close it becomes really steamy to:) The shoes makes a nice example of the shoe design of Ingenue, they are named “Gatsby”. Again hair from Sadistic Hacker and the jewelry worn here comes from the jewelry design line Stars! by Stargem Winkler!

We finish up this visit to Ingenue with a beautiful and really sweet dress in mesh. It speaks for itself I think and it´s called “Greta”. This version is the “Pink Dot”. This time we can see hair from “Amacci” and again jewelry from Stars!. All the pictures today have been taken in the Morocco sim, well worth a visit with lots of different things to see.

Thank You for your visit to my blog and very welcome back!

JeRsEy ShOrE – Glitter Goes Designing!

Many years ago I met a really sweet girl in connection with the JCNY Model Fest Contest finals. It was Glitter Bolissima who many of you know as a model that been around a long time in Second Life and gathered  a lot of experience through the years. A while ago she sent me an IM and told me she had started out on the line of designing and asked me if I wanted to check out a few of her creations. I was not surprised that Glitter had been taking on this challenge and new step in her career and I was really curious of what I would be experiencing testing out her products.

The design line of JeRsEy ShOrE is what can be described as a club design line. It is daring, provocative and spicy. If you are the more sensitive and shy type there are of course outfits you can find in Glitters production line but it is, as I think, a line of design aiming for the more outgoing, for the women who are not afraid of showing off a bit more of their assets than usual:)

The price setting is very reasonable and I definitely think that Glitter, despite that she recently started out more seriously with her designing, by her experience and networking with people in SL for this many years, know what many out there in the party and club environment request. Let´s have a look at three of her outfits… today all jewelry comes from the hands of StarGem Winkler, the owner and creator of the jewelry brand Stars!. The poses come from GM Nikolaidis who is the man behind the animation and pose line “Fluke”!

We start off with a top named “Knotty Lips Tee” in pink and the “MVP Shiny Capri” in black! The items become a sexy and juicy combination where especially the design of the pants with the shiny fabric becomes an eye-catcher. Hairbase from Mad, the “Tribe” and hair from Ari, the “Anari”. The sneakers comes from Detour. All the pictures made by me and they were taken around in the urban themed area named “Neko Zone”.

We move on to another steamy thing. This one is named DTF and as you can see this is something smoking HOT! It has all it takes for creating various traffic incidents if it´s worn outside in the street and will guarantee you those IMs telling you how hot you look when you wander around in SL:) Maybe not always from the people you appreciate it from however, we know that routine lol…this time the hair is from Mad, the “Luz” and the hairbase from Ari, the “Cryptic”. 

Finally, we look at a cute top named “Buttons Sweater” in purple. I added the “Corona Supa Faded” jeans for the sweater and I think this is a nice combo all together. Warm, huggable approach, still it´s quite sexy and again a nice example of the design that Glitter created. Hair from Truth, the “Janice”.

That was all folks and it is time to close the post and I hope that you had a nice time visiting me!!! Welcome back soon!!!

 

PRISM – The Journey….continues!

Hello again! The year of 2012 goes on and the development of fashion in Second Life is fast at the moment. The Mesh – revolution continues and more and more of the designers are releasing these kind of designs. As you probably understood by now, my focus in blogging during the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012, has been the PRISM trademark and it´s production line. After being contacted by Herradura Baar, the General Manager of PRISM, in the late 2011, I have been working with these talented and friendly people and grew very fond of their attitude towards fashion and their customers. It´s fun to help them in marketing and I´m proud to have been asked to do so. The owner and designer Journey McLaglen now started out on the road of Mesh and today I want to start with introducing you to two examples of Journeys Mesh designs:

First we have a design named Adele. Here I´m presenting you two versions, the first one named “London” in leather. If you are as conservative as I am when it comes to new inventions in SL (!:)), I think you might not own one single Mesh outfit yet. Well, how about this..get your nice butt down to PRISM and give this “London” outfit a chance will you?:) In no-time you will have it on and you have a couple of options to find your own size that you can feel comfortable with and “recognize” yourself as you created your own avatar. This is not always the case with Mesh as we know…of course the system of shaping in Mesh can´t provide the full liberty of shape adjustments yet but I´m convinced that we will get there in the near future. For time being PRISM reached as far as you can go and the quality and look of the Mesh design here is really high standard. The overall impression is top and you just need to see this for yourself!

In this blog post I also give you examples of a jewelry line created by a designer who is present at the PRISM main store, the designer Stargem Winkler. In this “London version”, you can see a pearl necklace with matching earrings from her most recent collection. The shoes are from SKIFIJA, the “Countess” pumps. These pumps are seen here and there in Second Life and I stumbled over them at a fashion show where a girl in the audience wore them. I liked them a lot and at the visit to the store there I came across the designer and store owner, goran Osterham. He is a very ambitious shoe designer and we will see where this man will go. A visit to his store is interesting and these pumps offers you a broad variety of color choices, shoes possible to wear with anything! The hair is from Dura, the “number 22″! For me, a lover of short hair, this place is a Mecca! The photos were taken in “London” in SL, couldn’t find a better spot for this outfit:) All poses today come from “Luth”!

 

We move on to the next Adele version, this one is named “River Oaks Brocade” and wearing this I had a feeling of being in the year 2012 but with a strong influence of the “roaring twenties”…might be my weird brain again..:) Anyway, putting this on made me feel good directly and I went off to virtual “New York” and strolled around and found a place where that feeling came back again. A bit retro twenties feeling, standing next to an old cab from that time seemed natural:) The jewelry from Stars! this time is a selection named “Gold Lace”.

Let´s leave the Mesh section for this time and check out some traditionally created designs from PRISM. These are again new releases and we will look into something named “Aurora”. I will show you two examples of versions, first the one named “Tulip”.  As always Journey works with colors that lifts the impression of the design even more and it´s hard to explain exactly what makes you like her design as much as you do. It´s there, it´s something we feel but at least for me, it´s difficult to put words to the experience. More than maybe, “it´s that Journey-feeling”:)…..the jewelry is the Stars! “Sandy”! The hair is from Dura, the “Girl 03″!

The final outfit today is a second example of the “Aurora”. This version is named “Watercolor” and it´s a color explosion (!), signaling the incoming spring with warm weather, visits to the sea, boating etc. With this design Journey takes us on a trip through the 60ts, 70ts and back again, blending the past times with the current and the future. Another example of the timeless fashion that you can see a lot of in the PRISM design line. I added the Stars! pearl set for this and the hair is a Dura one again, “Girl 22″.

With these pictures, taken by myself so I can´t blame anyone else:)…I close my post for today. I said it before and I say it again. If you still didn ´t visit PRISM. Do it. It´s there waiting for you. Go there and see for yourself, make up your own mind, I don´t think you will get disappointed! Hugs from Maddie!

PRISM GOES MADDIE!

Hello everyone and welcome to a new episode of “The Madeleine Dollinger Blog”!:)

Tonight I will actually be blogging about myself….now you think that i finally had it and got loony but the explanation will follow:) The year of 2012 could not have started in a better way for me in Second Life. One evening after Christmas I was suddenly tped over to the owner and designer of Prism, Journey McLaglen and her general manager Herradura Baar. They both pointed at a rack where i saw an outfit being worked on and then these people told me that what I was looking at was the beginning of a new outfit that they wanted to name “Maddie”!!!

These things have happened to me a few times before when other designers chose to name outfits after me and I always end up in the same state. I just stand there and don´t know how to express myself because you feel so proud by this amazing statement made by the particular designer aimed towards you as a model. It is a particular joy to be honored by people like Journey and Herra! 

Well, let us look at this creation! In this version we can see the Swedish colors reflecting in the overall design. Yes! This was one idea that Journey had about the outfit to put a special Swedish/ Scandinavian touch to it as she knows it´s where I live in RL! Hats off to Journey and Herra all you Swedes out there in SL land!! More will follow when Journey, as I write this blog post, work on a wide color program for this outfit where also another color tone of  blue/ yellow version will be released!

The outfit itself is a wonderful, warm and cosy creation put together with a sweater, dress part/skirt, a nice leather belt and a great scarf. Journey completes the outfit with a pair of long warm and nice stockings and this time Journey also added some cute winter boots!! Don´t you just feel to hug someone wearing this?? In this picture, taken by myself without any after – editing, I chose to wear Truth hair, this one named “Addison”!  

After the pictures showing the “Maddie” – outfit you will see a ad picture from Prism showing the recently released Prism “Gisele”, another hot design from the hands of Journey. The picture is taken by JEZZIXA Cazalet, the house photographer of Prism! If the model on the picture is familiar it´s because it´s yours truly:) The earrings worn by me there are Glow earrings, the dotted feather ones in prism (!) colors and the shoes are the sexy N-Core “Cherie” ones in candy.

Make a visit to Prism during the holiday leave and color yourself up in body, heart and soul!

To All Of You – Happy PRISMas!!!

We are rapidly moving into the most wonderful time of the year (?)…well, I love Christmas and I love buying Christmas presents to:) For those of you who wander around the stores in SL these days with the panic grabbing you cause you don´t know what to buy for that special friend or girlfriend…stop panicking, the help is near! I´m going to do something I didn´t do yet in my blogging in SL and that is making an encore of a designer, following up on an immediately previous post!

Yes, we will make yet another review of the design of PRISM by the much talented but still very humble and nice Journey McLaglen!  Always there to support her is her hard working general manager Herradura Baar! I was there and grabbed a bunch of outfits and went off to Xzari Winterland, owned by Xarina Demina, a place with a lot of nice winter themed areas and nice surprises here and there.

I got in a Christmas mood, even if there are 10 days left and started changing in the middle of the snow, brrrrr yeah it was cold but hey, what would I not do for you guys, my precious readers:)

We will start off with the “GABRIELLE” outfit first! This is available in a lot of versions but I chose one that is a mixture of sexy and girl next door, a warm sweater in black in combination with some tight leopard pants with nice details in leather. I wear some nice heels from N-Core here. The “Extreme Heel II Galaxy” slingbacks in black. The hair is the “UW St Scott”, I can also mention the jewelry from Earthstones, the “Falling Leaves” earrings! The beautiful nails come from  CandyNail!

This all works well together I think and makes a nice frame of the picture Journey draw with this outfit! Btw, all the poses used here are from “EverGlow”!

And as always I remind you of that I´m no photographer but I do my best:) No editing has been made to the pictures – the way the outfits look here are the way they look in world!

Moving on to the next! This one is named “Mercedes”, here in the “Forest” version and this is a spicy dish where the sexy green corset grabs the attention immediately! When you go on looking over the rest of this smoochy creation you will find a pair of tight, hot pants in a mix of black – green and purple and it´s all, as usual with Journey, well balanced together in well made and carefully worked details in the fabric. The jacket is also a really nice design where each attachment fits in smoothly and don´t need a whole day and a sack of valiums to get together:)……oh, yeah, the shoes, they are from PM, the “Baby T Plains” in black! The hair is the “Tess” from Truth!

The next number in this show is the “MUSIQUE”, an explosion in colors and this was my toughest experience during this shoot:) It was cold for sure but I sacrifice myself for the sake of blogging so here we go:)) I walked out on the ice like walking out from a plane that landed after two weeks in Hawaii! Dressed for Hawaii and not for the winter I landed in:) But this dress almost made the ice melt, geez:) I´m usually a bit conservative about my choices when it comes to mixing of lots of colors but I felt comfortable wearing this! This dress made me feel happy and glad! The jewelry is the Darcy “Butterfly in purple”. For the rest I let the pictures speak for themselves! The winter boots come from N-Core, the “Noir Intense”! The glasses come from Kalnins, the “Laura” ones.

Finishing this post I will wish you Happy Holidays and THANK YOU for following and visiting my blog during 2011! For me it has been an amazing year in SL and RL and I hope for the same when we reach 2012! I hope you will have a nice rest during the holidays and get strength for the new year that arrives soon! I wish you all the best in the year to come and lots of luck with your future plans whatever they will be!:)  The last picture will be the PRISM outfit “SHILOH” in cranberry! And hey, I am the one on the right side!:) HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!
