A Late Hour

Sablier, from the BDSM collection by LeeZu

This is another designer that was recommended by Disaster Krogstad, and oh goodness oh my is it blogworthy! Many of the outfits I found in the BDSM collection by LeeZu were daring and delicious, but the one that immediately drew my eye and held it was Sablier. Google tells me that “Sablier” is French for “hourglass” – and it certainly does sculpt the female figure into that classic silhouette!

What’s “Just Right”: The shape of the corset has beautiful, classic lines. It has gorgeous highlighting to draw attention to a full bustline. The use of textured fabrics on the sides is a lovely, elegant touch. I like the angled lacing in the front back. Naeve’s response when I sent her the pictures for this shoot was, “OMG! You look sooooooooooooooo hot!”

What Could Use Improvement: Without a doubt, the weak point of Sablier is the garter straps. Compared to the strong texture work of the corset, they draw the eye due to their lack of clarity and detail. The concept behind the stockings is very fun, and she’s provided some shadow detailing to give depth, but they don’t hold their own in the outfit. It may not be the case on other avatars, but when I put on this outfit, there’s a distinct line at the waist, even though I wore the Jacket layer and not a pants/shirt combo.

Other things to note: Additional pieces provided include a collar with the BDSM symbol and some wrist ‘restraints.’ The shoes pictured in the pictures in the store do NOT come with the outfit (in some other ensembles in the BDSM room, the boots or shoes are included). The hip drape may give you some difficulty with resizing, but the details of it – the lace drape, the roses at each hip, are well worth the trouble.

Featured Outfit Details:
Price: 690L
Pieces: 14 + 3 notecards (including an educational overview of BDSM), Texture and landmark
Availability: Red or Black

Aisha at the Office

Aisha by PixelFashion

Back when The Marketplace was XStreet (which, I have to admit, I preferred), I found a saucy little number called Aisha by PixelFashion. I put it on my favorites list, but kept putting it off, because I had concern about how it would look on a girl of my curves. After a visit to their in world store, I decided to give it a shot. About 25 minutes of prim-adjustements later, I decided that my first thought was right – this is far more easily fit to, and more flattering on, a girl of more modest curves.

What’s “Just Right”: I like the line of the panties and the overall design of the outfit. All of the variants have bright splashes of color combined with dark accents, which is visually very pretty. The brightest spot in the whole ensemble for me was the lace texture on the accent prims. It’s crisp and well executed.

What Could Use Improvement: I wish there was more clarity of detail. It looks.. well.. fuzzy… even on a slender avatar. The top prim was challenging for both Katya and I to wrestle into some semblance of fitting.

Other things to note: PixelFashion makes a dizzying array of items; everything from men’s elephant novelty thongs (!), to fetishwear and lingerie, to shoes and boots, make up, party accessories, and ladies and mens wear. They have a very solid showing on The Marketplace.

Featured Outfit Details:
Price: 250L
Pieces: 8 + Landmark (3 prim attachments (pelvis, stomach and spine), pants/shirt, underpants/undershirt, and stockings))
Availability: Aisha is offered in Blue, Red, Blue & Pink, and White

Ratings:
Detailing: C+. I would have liked to see more crispness on the details; I felt almost all of the textures were a bit muddied.
Prim Attachments?: Ruffles on the bustline and each hip (3)
Resizing Scripts?: No
Tattoo Friendly?: Yes – the outfit is offered on two different layers
Curvy Girl Friendly?: No. Adjusting the chest prim for a girl with curves was so maddening that after 25 minutes of ‘edit linked parts’ tweaking, I gave up.
Multi-purpose pieces: No

[Please Note: It’s my understanding that this blog was referenced a few weeks back in a Plurk conversation about ‘glorification of domestic violence.’ While the photography scenes for this post have implications of sexual harassment in the office – which is a serious issue, which I, myself, have faced – these shots were done very tongue in cheek. I asked Katya which role she’d prefer: the one in charge or the subordinate, and she very perkily admitted that she “loves to be sexually harassed” in a consentual power-exchange sort of way. No glorification of the actual exploitation of women in the workplace is intended or should be implied.]

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!

Disclaimer for full disclosure: This outfit and the furniture in the bedroom setting were graciously provided by the designers.

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


Darling Duo


Naeve Piano Solo


Sabella Lounging


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.
