Angel D’Amour

Trashy Girls In Style: You Are My Angel

Last week we were able to report from Virtual London Fashion Week about the new line of lingerie from Trashy Girls in Style and their bridal division, Amore Dolce. I’m happy to report that the first of the line up is now available for sale! I was excited to see the feminine details and very classic lines of the You are my Angel laced corset. The lines on the bodice harken back to Victorian underpinnings with their angles of support for the bust, but are brought to you in delicate laces instead of Victorian muslin. This release is available in four colors: White, Butter, Baby Blue and Blush

What’s “Just Right”: There are so many “just right” details on this one! I love the single rhinestone found nestled into the bows and interspersed along the ribbons on the front. It’s such a minor little thing, but it adds a delicate, girlie touch. The inset panel of lace along the front creates visual interest, as does the seaming elements along the sides. The prim ruffle at the hem and bustline is a perfect touch. I appreciate the two different panty options: a full coverage – yet deliciously sheer – bikini and a more daring thong. Oh, wait, how could I neglect the maribou boa! Our models had fun playing with them, and they underscored the overall elegance of the piece.

What Could Use Improvement: The stocking choices included in each set are Black, Blush, Tan and White — but one of the outfits is Baby Blue… and thus that ensemble doesn’t have a stocking that matches. (This may simply be a release error/oversight, as there are SO many pieces provided in the set.)

Other things to note: As mentioned in other blog posts, Trashy Girls in Style has extremely generous freebies and lowbies available in the store. Don’t forget to look upstairs for some really great deals!

Tickled Pink

OnyxWear Corset Dress

I stumbled across OnyxWear while prowling around on one of the weekend sales routes. I was immediately impressed with their under-bust shading and highlighting and snatched up four of their shirts, one of which can be seen in the (Hippy) Jailbait post. Their style definitely runs towards the urban/slut-chic, with bright colors, high hemlines and plunging necklines. It occurred to me that if they did lingerie, I might be on to something really fun… and so off I went to their main store. On the second floor, I hit the jackpot and found a wonderful corset dress I just had to share.

Available in a multitude of colors (“Dark, Chocolate, Pink Zebra, Pink, Lime, H2O, Cherry, Barney” – I also really like the Black and will probably go back and grab it sometime in the near future. Lime, H2O, Cherry and Barney were just too neon for my tastes.), the outfit really has its strength in the corset itself. Sure, there’s a sculpted prim skirt you can wear, and yes, the black lace edging on it is delicious, but honestly, the corset takes the cake. It’s feminine and sexy with a classic burlesque feel to it.

What’s “Just Right”: The hand drawn softness of the corset is a big win; there’s plenty of fabric wrinkles just where they should be and the metal busk style closure of the front is subtle but present. The line of the panty is smooth and flattering. I really liked the contrast and pattern of the black lace ruffle on the skirt.

What Could Use Improvement: A hud or other mechanism to assist with the sizing of the skirt would have been nice. Even utilizing a “skirt shape” which I hate to do, I had difficulty getting appropriate coverage out of the skirt that comes with the ensemble. A black lace prim ruffle at the bust line that matched the ruffle at the skirt would have been delicious, as would a garter belt option. I would also have loved if the corset was designed *SEPARATE* from the panties — it isn’t. That prevents this piece from being used as a stand-alone corset, which is really too bad.

Other things to note: While OnyxWear does have a presence on The Marketplace, this item is not for sale there.

The Key to the Boudoir

Naeve & Sabella in CIPHER

Naeve Close Up

Torso Closeup
By Naeve Rossini

The first time I ever heard of Cipher, it was when I inspected an awesome sculpted biker’s jacket worn by someone much taller than me. For sure, Cipher (and Cipher Ivory) is not about lingerie; the highlight of her store is her collection of jackets (men and women) and the overall feel is somewhat punk and eclectic. It’s a testament to the quality of her work that her one clear piece of lingerie gets the nod for this blog.

What’s “Just Right”: I love this outfit! There are so many things going right for it, I don’t know where to start. How about my butt? As a girl whose backside is probably her best feature, Cipher’s Armaros lingerie does a fantastic job of highlight all my curves in that area. So many designers have garter belts that seem to just wrap around the hips in a straight line. Cipher’s creation, on the other hand, has a natural sweep to it that gives my hips a lovely curve and fill to them.

The thong, too, does all the right things to show off that butt and to decorate the front with deliciously pretty patterns without giving away all of a girl’s secrets. The corset is likewise, exquisitely detailed.

One of the greatest highlights of this lingerie set is the sheer number of options that you can choose to wear. There are a whopping 53 pieces to the set, not to mention an additional 5 textures just to show you some of the combinations you can wear. This should be the standard for lingerie makers, especially for bra and panty and garter belt sets.

What Could Use Improvement: The one spot where I would like the most improvement is in the garter straps. This may be a “curvy girl” issue, but there was noticeable pixelation (albeit no distortion) in the straps as the came down over my butt.

The other part that could use a little more attention is the bra. I would like to see a little more separation between it and the corset, but more than that, I’d like to see some more detail in it to match the level found in the other pieces. For the purple bra, the colour’s just a little too bright compared to the duller shades in the other pieces. More delicate lace and less satin and it would have been perfect.

Featured Outfit Details:
Featured Outfit: Armaros by Cipher (In World, SL Marketplace), available in Black, Blue (not shown), Purple, Red (not shown) and White (not shown)
Price: $300 each; $1300 fat pack ($200 savings); Free Demo
Pieces: 53, just about every combination and every layer under the sun

Ratings:
Detailing: A- The detailing in the corset, garter belt and thong are so good that they overshadow the bra. Unfortunately, the garter strap distortion drops the mark down a bit.
Prim Attachments: Not Applicable
Resizing Scripts: Not Applicable
Tattoo Friendly?: OMG is it ever! Pick a layer, any layer.
Curvy Girl Friendly?: Yes, except for some distortion around the garter belt’s straps
Multi-purpose pieces?: You can mix and match all you want with this outfit. The stockings in particular lend well to other outfits, but the rest of it is clearly bedroom wear (unless you’re the sort to wear bedroom wear in public).
Sim Rating?: PG. It’s risquee, but less revealing than most swimwear.

BONUS!!!

While Sabella and I were shopping for the lingerie, we were so distracted by another display in the corner, we had to buy the other outfit, too.

Behold the Captain(s) Lacey!

Pirate Gurls

What’s “Just Right”: If you love lace, you have to get this outfit. The detail is absolutely luscious, especially on the stockings. The whole ensemble looks fantastic and even if you forego the skirt, you’ll be turning heads, pirate or not. There are options to be as demure (Naeve) or as racy (Sabella) as you’d like. (You could go racier by dropping the panty, but this is a PG blog.)

As a related item, I really liked the eyepatch that came with the hat. Alas, the hat, hair and eyepatch are all one object. Very well done, though. At first I thought it’d be too gaudy, but once I put it on, it totally worked for the outfit.

What Could Use Improvement: There’s very little that I’d like to see improved, although if I had to nitpick, I’d ask for some more highlights in the corset texture as well as giving the skirt a lacier feel to it. The satin look that it has now looks a little too “solid” and I’d like to see it look softer.

Bonus Outfit Details:
Bonus Outfit: Lacey Mini-Dress by Cipher (In World, SL Marketplace); available in Black (not shown) and Red
Price: $400 Lacey Mini-Dress; Naeve’s hat is $200; Naeve’s choker is $200; the whole set, along with a pair of Strangle II Belted Boots (not shown) is $1000 in the Captain Lacey Punk Pirate All In Pack.
Pieces: 19 (9 clothing, 10 prims)

Ratings:
Detailing: A+ This outfit is very strong on detail in every piece.
Prim Attachments: 10; 2 skirts (pelvis), 2 lace collars (chest and spine), 2 lace cuffs (right and left upper arm), 2 garters (right and left hip), 2 arm warmers (right and left forearm)
Resizing Scripts: No
Tattoo Friendly?: Yes. The outfit covers a lot of skin
Curvy Girl Friendly?: Yes
Multi-purpose pieces?: The skirt isn’t very multipurpose, but the stockings and the corset can definitely be mixed and matched with other clothing to great effect.

Hollee Moley, Batgirl!

Group Shot: Lingerie by Hollee
Katya Kali Meltemi Dina


Naeve
Precious
Bea
Britnie
Samantha
Sabella and NaeveSabella
[This photo shoot is officially dedicated to Beebo Brink.]

I found Lingerie by Hollee while browsing on XStreet, and also had this designer mentioned to me by some folks who follow the SLingerie blog. I made myself several mental notes to talk about this designer when I was on my “Lingerie Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive” rant, too. When the idea for a great big photo shoot came up (inspired by a pose sale at Glitterati, to be honest), I knew I wanted to feature Hollee’s work. It’s very economical, looks good on a wide range of body types and has something to suit almost any personality. The girls at SLU and the Syn City sim came to my rescue and brought their friends. We even grabbed passers by and tosed them on a poseball. 😉

The designs themselves are classic lingerie in cut and style. Garterbelts, teddies, bras, panties: all with lovely attention to detail. I love the vertical embroidery detailing on Depravity, the smooth, feminine lines on Debauchery, or the simple sexiness of Bianca. I loved the variety in the offerings, color wise. The prices are ridiculously low (Buy at the inworld shop for even more value!) for the level of quality you get.

What’s “Just Right”: Several girls at the shoot gravitated towards the Depravity and Debauchery outfits. The soft, feminine lines were flattering, and the contrast of sheerness and embroidery detailing on Depravity was the clear winner. I was impressed by the variety of layering options provided.

What Could Use Improvement: Of all of the outfits we tried on, the Burlesque held up the least well. The detailing present in the other outfits just wasn’t there on this one. Prim details like lacing or ribbons or bows would have been a lovely extra touch… but really, what you get for the Lindens is already a huge bargain.

Other things to note: If you can — shop the inworld store! Purchases there come with some extras.. 🙂
