Jade by Angel Dessous, Modeled by Elle Aima

Pondering Love Letters

Shoe Fetish Peeping Tom
Angel Dessous is well known in the SL lingerie world; the designs are soft, beautiful and have very classic lines. When I was chatting with my friend Elle about modeling for us, I asked her what type of outfit she’d like to wear. “Something innocent.. but not!” she replied. A real girlie-girl, she had no interest in leather or latex; she wanted sexy, sensual and romantic. So the choice was simple; I brought her to Angel Dessous. “Oh, I like this!” she said, shortly after the shop rezzed. “Which outfit?” I asked. “All of them!” she answered. After prowling through both floors of the lingerie area, we settled on this delicious little number: Jade. (It comes in Red, White, and Black – but sadly, not in jade green, which would have been fitting, given the name.)

What’s “Just Right”: I love the lace detailing combined with the sheer mesh of this outfit. It adds a lovely touch that is undeniably feminine. The wide band at the stocking is great – and I love that they included the realism of the upward-tug on the fabric where it attaches to the garter. The triple cord on the strap on the back of the chemise is an intriguing touch. I also appreciate that there are two versions of the corset included (both on Jacket layer) that provide two different options for modesty/coverage – one with solid cups and one with sheer cups. (The names, however, are not very illustrative of which is which.)

What Could Use Improvement: I would have liked a touch more shading work on the panties and bra – it appeared a smidge flat. There could also be more detail on the clips on the garterbelt. Not having the panties available on the pants layer was disappointing.

Other things to note: Angel Dessous also offers a wide range of fashions, including swimwear, dresses, separates, etc. They also have an “outlet” store in which older collections are offered “at least 50% off” the original price.

I’ve Got A Crush On You…

Crush, by BlackLace .
I was doing my weekly browsing of new lingerie offerings on XStreet, and was delighted to see BlackLace pop up with a cute little number called “Crush.” (Sadly, I think they did themselves a disservice in the listings – all the pictures show the pink version, so shoppers don’t get to see the range of colors available: Pink, Purple, Champagne, Teal, Yellow, Black, Blue, Green, and Orange. As well, they don’t make use of the ‘See Item in Second Life’ feature, that would give browsers a link to their store location.) I love the combination of sheer fabrics and lace, so Crush immediately drew my eye. I popped over to their store and wandered around looking for the outfit — you’ll find it onthe lower floor. I’m a sucker for certain colors – the blue just had to come home with me. 🙂

What’s ‘Just Right’: I love the little details that BlackLace puts into this piece. The seaming down the front of the mesh, the little ribbon rosettes, the lace pattern on the padded cups of the bra… But what blew me away was the panties! Yes, panties that look as good coming as they do going. (sorry, there’s just so much bad underwear out there, I have to really celebrate when someone gets it so very right.) To quote a country song, ‘We hate to see her go, but love to watch her leave…*’ Your significant other is going to adore watching you stroll about in these undies. The line of the back is graceful, flattering, feminine, and sexy – and if you’re a girl with some wiggle in your walk, it’s going to enhance it. Woot!

What Could Use Improvement: Erm… Well, their Xstreet listings definately need some help, but… for the piece itself, the only way I could see to improve upon it, is to have a finished seam on the bottom hem. But that’s reaaaally stretching it. Frankly, this is a really well made piece.

Tattoo Friendly?: Yes! Generous layering options are provided.
Curvy Girl Friendly?: Yes! Only the vile and horrid mesh problems of Linden Lab caused this outfit any difficulties… NOT the design!
Multi-purpose pieces?: Yes! I tossed on a pair of jeans, and voila! I was decent enough to go wandering about the grid. “Crush” makes a great top. 🙂

Which Version Do You Like?

WTW Lingerie: Version 24

WTW Lingerie: Version 24

WTW Lingerie: Version 24

WTW Lingerie: Version 24

Wanderer The Wind (WTW) appears to be part of an ‘artists collective’ called Nenashigusa Nest. I heard about them from one of the girls in SL Universe, and was immediately struck by the hand-painted delicacy of their work. You’ll find them in Trenza, on the second floor of a rather simple little shop… it’s worth tracking them down. The prices are remarkably low and the styles are beautifully executed. I selected a number of items on my first visit, and upon revisiting the store today, found another new release I just had to have – and grabbed the original camisole in another color (It comes in white, white with tiny flowers, a polka dot version in seafoam/turquoise and a hot rose/pink, a floral version in pinky-peach, blue, and teal).

What’s “Just Right”: That the designer, Tomoe Zenovka, was able to make the bodice so exquisitely translucent is remarkable. The subtlety of the avatar skin beneath the clothing adds an exquisite reality to the garment. I love the lace accents along the panty and bodice of the camisole, and the highlighting is very nicely done. While the under-bust shading is very light, it doesn’t *detract* from a full bustline as some outfits do. I also like the embroidery detail on the bustline – it’s a nice extra touch.

What Could Use Improvement: I wish the lace sides on the panties arched just a little bit more – the straight across the hips line isn’t as pretty as a line with a bit of curve would be … but I also understand the constraints of the bottom hem of the chemise.

Other things to note: If you visit the store, be sure to check out the bookshelf area. There’s a lot of neat items tucked in there – you’ll need to cam around. Also, there are some very low priced extras available.

Special Thanks to Jeni Roussel, Alexa Lioncourt and Maureen Boccaccio, who dropped everything to help me out with the shoot! While I goofed up the group shot (100% my fault), I think these individual shots turned out rather nicely! Thank you, ladies!
