Jewelry Fair 2011 Elements Poster 1024x512

Jewelry Fair 2011 website:


The Jewelry Fair 2011 does not disappoint!  How can you possibly go wrong with such an inspiring theme and high quality, talented designers?  The fair is full of tons of great quality, reasonably priced (and a few great freebies and cheapies) new designs to tantalize your senses.  I know they certainly have mine!  I’ve been visiting each booth…at least twice, trying to decide what I can get the most of with my budget.  And I’ll more than likely be going back a 3rd time before it is over.

The fair runs from the 16th until the 25th this year.

The designers are spread across four sims and element themes:  Air, Fire, Earth and Water.  Each unique sim is completely styled, created and atmosphered (is that a word?) into its respective element.  Let’s take a look!

A quote from the organizers:

“With 4 sims packed with more than 100 amazing booths, we hope that this will truly be an experience to remember! We have aimed to please and are really excited to share this amazing fair with…the public!”

When you first land at the fair, you are on a platform with teleporters to each of the 4 sims.  This platform also has signs from each of the designers that are on that sim, to help you find who you’re looking for.  Or you can just visit all of them as I have over and over!

Jewelry Fair 2011 #03

I decided to start out with the Air sim:

Jewelry Fair 2011 #04

The air sim hosts many of the Gatcha machines as well as all of the one of a kind auction items.  Be sure to visit these and bid on your favorites before they end on September 25th.

Jewelry Fair 2011 #05

Each sim has a central area with teleports that you can use to the other sims.  That way you don’t have to go back to the main landing to move on to the next place.

Jewelry Fair 2011 #06

The Air sim is very heavenly in nature.  From the great sunset type lighting to the winged unicorns to the cupid statues, it is quite beautiful and rich in feel.  Gold everywhere and puffy white clouds, help to complete the setting.

Jewelry Fair 2011 #07

If you are one who prefers the darker elements or perhaps are one with the night, you might prefer the look of the Fire sim:

Jewelry Fair 2011 #08

There are more Gatcha machines on the fire sim that you can have fun playing with for a few linden!

Jewelry Fair 2011 #09

Each shop is nicely highlighted with their signs surrounded by old, broken trees and a bit of greenery in the vines.

Jewelry Fair 2011 #10

Even if the dark is not your thing, you definitely should explore this sim in its whole.  The great light settings and lots of red, flowing lava make for fun photoshoots!

Jewelry Fair 2011 #11

Perhaps being one with nature is more your thing.  If so you definitely cannot miss the Earth sim!

Jewelry Fair 2011 #12

The island seems to be one large tree and its surrounding vegetation, with roots twisting and turning through the vendors.

Jewelry Fair 2011 #13

The vendors are built right into the tree itself, many using the greenery as a surround for the shop.

Jewelry Fair 2011 #14

This sim has a definite ethereal feel!  With trees that look like they could speak to you and flowering mushrooms that are sure to be hiding fairies, how can you resist such a gorgeous setting!

Jewelry Fair 2011 #15

Last but certainly not least, we have the stunning Water sim:

Jewelry Fair 2011 #16

Moonlight bathes the boardwalks as you stroll through the various designers booths set here.

Jewelry Fair 2011 #17

The designers’ huts themselves fit in perfectly with the surrounding decor.

Jewelry Fair 2011 #18

I believe that the water sim is my personal favorite as far as setting goes with the many green plants and water lilies floating on the reflective, blue and green water.

Now, I have picked up many, many jewelry designs to show you.  Those will be showcased in my following posts.  I have lots and lots so please be prepared for photo heavy & descriptive articles!

Some other very important information I can’t leave out:

Organizer: Cara Ametza
Builder: Angelica Leiner
Builder Assistant: Roseana Pera

Apple Spice and Finesmith #1

June 29, 2011 at 8:37 pm (Hunts, New Releases, Reviews, Sales & Discounts)

Poses and jewelry…two of my, well many, weaknesses.  Last week I did the Finesmith hunt and got lots and lots of goodies!  I was also sent a review pack from AppleSpiceStore Resident of Apple Spice poses and I wanted to show those as well.  I figured one of the best ways to show poses specifically was without lots of clothing in the way.  The black skin is from Nuuna’s Skins and it works as a good background for the jewelry.  Unfortunately it has the bits painted on so I couldn’t be naked as I was hoping lol.  So I put on a basic swimsuit.

Pose makers are certainly getting more exposure than they used to but its still not near where it needs to be.  So many bloggers don’t state what poses they use, and its part of the styling just as much as the clothing and accessories are.  So the opportunity to showcase a pose designer specifically was very exciting.

Plus with beautiful designs from yula Finesmith, how can you go wrong?  Enjoy the post!

Introducing: Cilian’gel

June 11, 2011 at 12:14 am (Mens, New Releases, Reviews)

How can you possibly resist anything Charlie Chaplin or Clara Bow?  Cilia Shepherd of Cilian’gel passed me her hunt gift today for the Hollywood Walk Of Fame Hunt II which is running from June 11th to June 25th 2011.  Look for two Stars in the Cilian’gel 1920’s Boutique. The prizes you will get are for men and women and inspired from no one else than the legendary Charlie Chaplin and Clara Bow.  It includes both outfits shown below.  Here is the hint for the HWOF Hunt: Look up and high, you may find some Stars hidden behind the Moon.

How fun is this set?  I kinda want to dress Kiki up in the Charlie Chaplin outfit as well 😀  And definitely going to make a trip to Cilia’s shop to see what other great things she has to offer.  The poses used below are also from Cilian’gel and can be found in the past notices of the Cilian’gel Designs group!

June 8, 2011 at 3:25 pm (New Releases, Reviews)

I’ve blogged a couple of times about the furniture & decor store by 2WAT Michigan &  Jiovi Michigan, MiChIGaN’s ShAcK on my other blog:  Models Must Live Lavishly.  You can see the posts I’ve done there.  They also own a quality clothing store named ::J:: StyleZ:: and sent me some info on that to bring to you on the blog here.

At this shop they create clothing, RP wear, shoes, accessories, in a wide range of styles to suit all tastes.  At the moment it is free to join the ::J:: StyleZ:: VIP group (normal cost to join is 100L$), membership gets you an extra 10% discount of everything (so up to 60% while the sale is on). and  weekly special offers (this weeks pictured below) plus exclusing access to the ::J:: StyleZ:: group only store where there are many many outfits less then 10L%  with other benefits coming to the group after the fee is introduced its worth getting in now.

Mainstore SLurl:

One of their newest releases are these lovely boho outfits available in either black or white.  This is their vendor ad so I don’t have the style sheet to share with you.

Introducing Chichi of London

May 23, 2011 at 1:41 am (New Releases, Reviews)

The week before last I was introduced to a new to me designer:  Gaius Luminos.  Gauis has absolutely stunning designs that she creates for her shop:  CHICHI of London Fashion Designs.  When I first got a glimpse of her masterpieces I was immediately drawn to the Asian inspired fabrics and styles she creates, among others!  Let me tell you a little about CHICHI in Gaius own words:

“Chichi of London is a womens fashion design company based on a real life predecessor that was active in the late 1960’s/ early 70’s. Chichi virtual retains much of the spirit of its swinging 60’s counterpart. Our styles are freewheeling, eclectic and fun, and cover a broad range including but not limited to Victorian, Gothic/Lolita, Fetish Wear, Costumes, Movie Actress Costumes, Haute Couture…
…and of course 1960’s Retro.

“Chichi of London is located in The Apple Building, on New York Island, in the Heart of New York City Center SL, right next to The Empire State Building.
~Five Floors of Fashion, Footwear, Skins, Shapes And Hairs, of exceptional Quality!

“Chichi is a Sister Company to The Drlife Skin and Hair Co. and we maintain the same rigorous and meticulous attention to craftsmanship, quality, realism and beauty that is required of all Drlife Products….”

To Be or Not To Be…

May 13, 2011 at 12:18 am (New Releases, Reviews) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

…a Neko?  Even if you aren’t you can still wear LoveCats!!

Last winter, I was hired as a model for LoveCats.  After working there for a few months, my SL time got a lot busier with blogging so I unfortunately had to step down as a model.  However, LoveCat Thei has kindly allowed me to blog for her!  I just want to say, something I noticed right from the start, that LoveCat’s shop may be targeted to all the nekos and other furries in SL, but omg…her designs are incredible for wearing everyday too!!

The detail she puts into each piece is amazing.  Its quite obvious the amount of time and effort that she enjoys putting into her work.  And that she loves her job!  You have to see her designs for yourself to see what I mean.  Even for those who don’t want to be a Cat or other form of animal in SL, you can still very much appreciate the intricacy of her work and quality it will add to your wardrobe.  The pieces are great for mix and matching for models!  Before I keep going on all night, let me show you what I mean with one of her newest releases for women.
