Treasures of the Orient

Sumana by Zaara

One of the things you can count on when you purchase from Zaara, is that none of their designs are ever ever ‘look-alike.’ You’re going to find something fresh and interesting, not derivative. You can always expect rich textures, often with Near and Far East elements to them, beautiful garment lines, and a focus on detail. Their Sumana Lingerie release is no different, and it proudly upholds the Zaara tradition of excellence.

Released back in August of 2010, Sumana features a strapless demi-cup bra, wide corset-style garter-belt, panties and stockings. The fabric choices step away from the usual: no tawdry lace or delicate tulle, they’ve brought us lush Oriental influences in satin. The fabrics are elegant and the Asian style floral patterns have a crispness that is remarkable, given that all of Zaara’s products are hand drawn.

What’s “Just Right”: The pleating on the garter-belt/corset piece is unusual and adds a very elegant and couture feel to the garment. I like the keyhole cutaway on the panties and the adorable little bow is a perfect accent to draw the eye. The wide array of layers in the ‘optional pieces’ box really helps with putting together your ideal look. I appreciate that, because it allows me to wear my panties OVER the garters. There’s a lot to like here – the outfit is executed with precision and beauty.


Detail: frontDetail: Shoes

What Could Use Improvement: If we were given a bra option with straps, as well as the strapless version, I would have had a squeegasm. 🙂 I’ve personally never been drawn to the strapless look. An upward tug on the fabric of the stockings where they attach to the garter straps would be a welcome additional touch of realism. Such pretty fabrics are used, that I would have adored seeing a full corset version as well.

Other things to note: Zaara is my absolute favorite store build from a design standpoint. The store and surrounding courtyard and buildings are exquisite and perfectly suited to the style of products sold, while creating a beautiful and tranquil environment that invites you to explore, relax and enjoy. When you drop by, be sure to look for the freebies and lowbies being offered in the outer foyer. Look for the picture of a distinguished Indian gentleman (the winner of their photo contest earlier this year) – they’re on the table underneath. You’ll find two accessories and two outfits. Sadly, Sumana is not yet available on The Marketplace, but Zaara does have a strong presence there.

Special Note: A huge thank you to Eku Zhong, who not only provided nearly all of the physical elements for the set, but assisted with styling and shared her cultural perspective as well. THANK YOU!!!

Naughty or Nice? Bratty or..?

Bratty: Christmas Edition

Presents!
Seated
Wrapping
Shoe Detail View
OK, I confess: I love holiday themed clothing. I adore the costumes of Halloween, I grin and squee at adorable bunny outfits, snicker at festive St. Patrick’s day themes, and feel an odd sense of pride and pleasure at 4th of July ensembles. Is it any wonder that Christmas is one of my favorite times of year? There are a plethora of outfits designed for the holiday season and I’ve been checking in with some of the designers who have really impressed us this year to see if they were doing any special releases.

One that jumped right off the page at me was the Carrie Bridger / Carrie’s Lingerie releases. She has over half a dozen, but the two that drew my eye the fastest was the Bratty and the Rachael. I visited their store and was immediately greeted by one of the customer service reps, Punky Teardrop. We chatted a bit about the store and the holiday items being offered. It was really lovely to have an actual salesperson to talk with, rather than a bot or silence, and I appreciated her help. She let me know that Carrie’s is doing a “12 days of Christmas” special, with a different outfit being offered for only 50L each day. I happened to luck out and found my favorite – Bratty – on discount that day. Yay for sales!

What’s “Just Right”: I liked the taffeta sheen to this outfit, and the adorable striped fabric on the bodice contrasting with the gold snowflakes on the body. There’s well-done hints at boning for extra realism, which I always appreciate. The busk is a subtle detail that is highlighted by a bright red edging. The line of the garters is feminine and flirty. You’re provided with several styling options: under-bust and over-bust, a flirty mini-ruffle or gartered look. The pieces are very mix-and-match friendly so you can find the version you like best. I appreciated the extra touch of the prim bow for the lacing ends.

What Could Use Improvement: I found the prim ruffle/skirt a bit unwieldy. It’s so short that it will require a good bit of adjusting individual prims for a more curvy avatar. There were some angles it just looked odd from. I would have liked a secondary, contrasting panty option – it disappears into the garter-belt a little bit.

Other things to note: Carrie’s Lingerie has a strong presence on The Marketplace, and they have gift-friendly permissions (Transfer) which is much appreciated!

Featured Outfit Details:
Price: 425 apiece or 2,300L for the fat pack (which does not include the holiday version)

Rosa Has Bloomed

Rosa in Caramel

At the end of September, we were privileged to give you a ‘sneak peek’ at an upcoming release by SeldomBlue — Rosa. Well, this flower has bloomed in a big, big way, and is now available! Especially for the holidays, there are three groups of releases: A full ‘fat pack’ in 7 different colors, a ‘limited pack’ in Caramel, and a Christmas themed dollarbie in white and red. We’ve been given the opportunity to share it with our readers, even before the ‘official’ public release announcement!

Based on their previous releases, we’ve come to expect high quality and loads of layering options from SeldomBlue. The Rosa ensemble takes it to a whole new level. It isn’t just a bra and panty set, or just a corset… it’s also a basque and a peignoir. IndigoBlue Dagostino has outdone herself, with a stunning FIFTY FOUR pieces in the fat pack. and 27 in the Caramel limited release (Corrected to note that the Caramel release has the full 54 pieces: due to some sort of weird inventory bug, not all the pieces were showing for me). It took me a few minutes to really grasp just how many options are available, it’s that mind boggling.

Stealing from the notes IndigoBlue supplied me, the fat packs include: “long basque, long basque with peignoir, cupless long basque, cupless long basque with peignoir, short basque, short basque with peignoir, cupless short basque, cupless short basque with peignoir, bra, bra with peignoir, peignoir only, full cut panties, full cut panties with garter-belt, thong, thong with garter-belt, garter-belt only, thigh-high stay up
stockings, stockings for garter-belt, garter bows, bra bow, hip frills, peignoir arm frills, and a peignoir skirt.” Takes your breath away, doesn’t it?

What’s “Just Right”: Hands down, the massive array of options is the strong point of this ensemble. But that shouldn’t take attention away from the exquisite femininity of the garments. From the soft, sheer bows to the flowing lace, the naughty or nice versions, the lovely cut of the panties… there is a LOT to celebrate with Rosa. I was delighted at the two stockings – the upward tug of the fabric for those designed to work with the garter-belt, and the clean, smooth line of the thigh-high ‘stay ups.’

What Could Use Improvement: While I really like the actual lace patterning, if there is a weak spot to the outfit, it lies in the textured roses at the bust and hip line. It’s really hard to capture something as three-dimensional as a rose in bloom, on flat fabric, and while a strong attempt was made… if I have to pinpoint a weakness, that would be it.

Other things to note: The Christmas Dollarbie includes an adorable marabou shrug/bolero, and a Short corset, thong, stockings, garter-belt, and garter-belt prim bows. Rosa is not currently available on The Marketplace, but Seldom Blue does have a very strong presence there. As a side note, while I’m not usually drawn to outfits with too many colors combined, I have to say that the Passion version is very intriguing and will probably be finding its way into my closet in the near future… 😉

Disclaimer for full disclosure: The Christmas Dollarbie and Caramel Limited Edition were provided as samples by the designer.

Featured Outfit Details: Rosa in Caramel by SeldomBlue
Price: 770L for the Bonus Fat Packs, 385L for the special release in Caramel, 1L for the Christmas version in white and red.
Pieces: Bonus Fat Packs = 54. Caramel Special Release = 27 (20 clothing items + 7 prim attachments – stocking bows (2), arm frills (2), skirt, hip frill, bra bow) Plus note card, texture and landmark.
Availability: Fat Packs: White (with black accents), Baby Pink (with hot pink accents), Rich Pink (more of a fuchsia/lavender to my eyes), Teal (a bright, minty green), Red (A deep, vibrant, orangey red), Passion (Black with accents of purple, pink and red), Black (with red accents – the version we got to Sneak Peek for you). Also the Special Release in Caramel, and the Christmas Limited Edition in White with Red accents.

Ratings:
Detailing: A. The lace patterning is beautiful as is the delicacy of the sheer bows and prim work.
Prim Attachments?: TONS. 7 on the limited Caramel release.
Resizing Scripts?: None.
Tattoo Friendly?: The panties/thong/garter-belt variations are offered on both underwear and pant layers. The variations of the basque/bra/peignoir are offered on shirt, and there’s one Jacket and one undershirt item… so it varies a little.
Curvy Girl Friendly?: Yes!
Multi-purpose pieces?: Hrm. Maybe if one was extra creative…
Sim Rating?: Angelheart is rated mature

Lazy Sunday

Intimates - Dots, by My Pinkie Skull: Lazy Sunday

Naeve’s last post was so overwhelmingly girlie cute that I had to follow that same vein. I dug through my ‘To Be Reviewed’ folder, and immediately came up with the Intimates Dots by My Pinkie Skull. This adorable little bra, panty and gartered stocking outfit is casual, comfy, girl-next-door-in-cotton sexy. It was the sort of outfit I could see myself wearing during some hardcore weekend lazing around the house. Or, if I was being daring, slipping out to the back yard to deal with the laundry… Hope the neighbor isn’t peeking through the fence! 😛 

I like the extra details found on the Intimates Dots — the seaming on the bra and panties, the shadow of nipples under the bra, the ribbon details on both pieces. These are the sorts of things that brings an outfit to the level that makes me sit up and wanna blog.

What’s “Just Right”: The highlight and shadow work on the bra is very subtle but well done.The seaming on both pieces is nicely executed. I appreciate that two options were offered – a single white lace garter mid-thigh, or white gartered blue stockings. I like the tiny hint of white lace at the top of the panty, and would love to have seen more on the bra as well.

What Could Use Improvement: I absolutely adore MPS’ 10 pack of panties (previously blogged in ‘Zipped’) for their detail – the undies on the Intimate Dots isn’t quite up to the same level. Still good — just not *great*. I’d love it if the bows on the bra and panties were prim bows, for extra detail.

Other things to note: My Pinkie Skull has a very strong presence on The Marketplace, which makes shopping and gifting easy.

Caught In A Web

Web Lingerie by Damage

Detail 1: Panty & Crotch Spider

Oh, what tangled webs we weave...

Detail 2: Bra Top & Nipple Spiders

At least every two or three weeks, I wander through the “Search” function of SL, looking for lingerie stores. One never really knows what you’ll find – and at Damage, I found an ecclectic mix of clothing, jewelry, and fun, pervy accessories. I got to chat a bit with the owner/designer – Dave Carmichael – and asked him directly: What was his favorite creation in the lingerie genre? He pointed me to the Web Lingerie Set and the Magic Marker teddy. Both were interesting, but the prim additions for the Web Lingerie pushed it to the forefront. (Ok, I admit it, I’m still not ready to give up on Halloween, even if it was a month ago. And I have no interest hearing about it almost being Christmas time. Bah Humbug!)

What’s “Just Right”: Unquestionably, it’s the prim work on the attachable spiders where the highest quality is found. The spiderweb bodysuit (underwear/shirt layer) is interesting and uses realistic web patterns, and I like the angular plunge of the back. The bra and panties are barely there, and you’ll definitely want a ‘smokeless’ skin to wear with them. The panty has flattering -if scanty – lines.

What Could Use Improvement: More clarity of detail on the actual clothing pieces would have been lovely. In this case, it wasn’t an issue of breast size – one of the girls from SLU, Electic Wingtips (who has a store full of very fun things, by the way: In World / The Marketplace) who is much more delicately curved than I, was kind enough to try it on for me. Even her “A” cups revealed significant pattern distortion/fuzziness – which still showed even when she modified her shape to 0. The spiders come with a built in ‘bling’ feature, and it’s my personal preference that such items be shipped ‘Bling Off’ with an option to turn it on… there aren’t instructions on how to do so in the product itself – I found out how by reading their Marketplace ad.

Other Things To Note: The store does have a presence on the SL Marketplace, but not all items in world are mirrored there. There’s a jewelry set that was made to match this outfit (which you can see in the pictures), and it is available on The Marketplace. Itsy Bitsy Tiny Prims!! To some degree, I think Mr. Charmichael missed his calling: the jewelry and prim work on the spiders and necklace was stronger than all the other clothing items I saw in the shop.

More Things To Note: My conversation with Mr. Carmichael took some odd and unexpected turns. He expressed his offense that I, as a submissive (per my profile), did not use an honorific for him when we were speaking about his fashions. I politely explained that had we met socially, my demeanor would have been different, but that when I am ‘working,’ I speak neutrally and don’t use power-exchange honorifics. The conversation went downhill from there, including fairly graphic insults regarding my (RL and SL) partner, whom he has never met. If you dig the outfit, I encourage you to shop at Damage… But I’d have to recommend caution when speaking with the owner. 😦

Disclaimer for full disclosure: Prior to the conversation getting strange, the designer was kind enough to gift me a copy of the outfit in white and the jewelry to match, but I liked it enough that I purchased a copy in another color as well. I was already feeling uncomfortable enough that I made sure to purchase a copy of everything I was gifted, so there wouldn’t be any sense of obligation or debt.

Featured Outfit Details:
Price: 299L
Pieces: 6 Clothing Layer pieces, 3 prims: 2 versions of the nipple spiders (one for smaller breasts/cleavage, the other for larger bustlines) and 1 pelvis spider
Availability: The Web Lingerie outfit is offered in three color options: Silver Sheer, Silver & White, and Black Titanium.

Ratings:
Detailing: B-. There’s just way too much distortion in the breast area; no clarity of detail. But the design concept itself is unique and nifty, which is why I went ahead and blogged it.
Prim Attachments?: Spiders for the nipples and crotch. (Ok, how often do you read THAT!?)
Resizing Scripts?: None.
Tattoo Friendly?: No – to wear the full outfit, you’ve got items on underwear/undershirt, shirt, and pants. No room for a tattoo or skin oil, unless it’s on a Viewer 2 tattoo layer.
Curvy Girl Friendly?: No.
Multi-purpose pieces?: The full ensemble is a cute costume that could easily be accessorized into a Drow Princess/Priestess outfit…
Sim Rating?: Threlkeld is rated Mature.

Bentham Forest

And Yet More Notes: On my first visit to Bentham Forest, within seconds of arriving in the sim and setting off to explore, I stumbled into a GIANT FREAKING SPIDER. (I’m an arachnophobe.) *breathe* Ok. Well. That would be perfect for this outfit, then, even if my skin would be crawling the whole time. I can do it. Upon returning to the sim to do the shoot, I spent over an hour and a half searching the place to find the creepy critter. Couldn’t find it. Rodeejah from SLU was kind enough to portal in to try and help me. So thank you, Rodeejah, for your help! (As it turned out, the spider was an avatar – the group bot for the area – and when I returned, it was underneath the sim surface and not accessible for the shoot. Which I can’t really say I’m too broken up about.)

Romana in Rio

...


Romana: View 2
I was thrilled to be offered this outfit to share with ya’ll; it’s the new Dollarbie by Seldom Blue. It was created in celebration of the opening of the Seldom Blue / Eternity Brides mini-shop at Oceane’s Body Boutique, and it’s called Romana. Since I’ve only ever been to the main store, I didn’t know that Seldom Blue offers a unique Dollarbie at each of the branch locations. Romana is exclusive to this location. (Take a look at the back wall of the shop to see other outfits exclusive to this location – the sheer white on black polka-dot bra and panty is adorable!)

While IndigoBlue describes it as having Roman influences, I was feeling a Rio De Janiero at Carnivale sort of vibe. I really like the softness of the prim skirt and sleeves. They have a great shape and color to them. The soft palette of colors used in Romana is delightful – almost like a mother-of-pearl hue. I do wish there was a little bit more coverage at the crotch of the panties – they’re a bit skimpy and come to a point a little higher than I would prefer.

Featured Outfit Details:
Price: 1L Dollarbie
Pieces: 11 + notecard + landmark + texture

Ratings:
Detailing: B+
Prim Attachments?: Yes: Sleeves and skirt
Resizing Scripts?: No
Tattoo Friendly?: Yes – each piece is offered on multiple layers
Curvy Girl Friendly?: Mostly – the pearl detailing lost a little clarity over my girls.
Multi-purpose pieces?: These could definitely be used as silks, or as part of a Carnivale costume…

Lush Green Urban Renewal

Naeve in CG Lush

Boobs

Butt

Booyah

By Naeve Rossini

There are many things I love about Lush and a few things I wish were a little different, but overall I enjoyed this offering so much, I bought the fat pack.

Lush really shows off the curves. ChronoSalp Galaxy‘s lingerie really flatter my shape, highlighting and drawing attention to my top and bottom with just enough sass, mixed with a touch of lacy class.

This is lingerie meant for showing off. If you’re the right sort of girl, this may be for you.

What I mean is that it looks demure on the surface, but if you allow the camera to wander close enough, you will find its sordid secrets between the legs. For the sake of this blog, we won’t be zooming up close for you, but suffice it to say the designer’s ads have little ovals on them for a reason.

Speaking of the designer, ChronoSalp has done a good job with creating a satiny texture and combines it well with intricate lace. Altogether, I am very pleased with the results and with her choice of color options. Too often, I see colors that are altogether unrealistic, but ChronoSalp has chosen very realistic and elegant colors for Lush.

Sadly, there aren’t a lot of lingerie choices at her shop. It’s mostly stockings. My hope is that more lingerie will appear with time.

(There’s a PG store and an Adult store, but they’re practically identical in offerings.)

What’s “Just Right”: I just have to say straight out that the curve of the back of the panty and the garter belt straps is perfect for showing off my bottom. I wouldn’t change a thing there. The lace is also phenomenal, both scalloped around my breasts and those stocking tops. Yum! The bra is cut in a way that really enhances cleavage and has that naughtiness of appearing like the band has tucked under the breast a little for us bustier girls.

What Could Use Improvement: It’s going to sound like minute nitpicking, but I would love to see just a little more texture in the satin to give it more of a fabric texture. It’s just a hair too glossy. My only other desire is for a garter belt with some triangular satin panels holding each belt and some combined layers for those that want to add tattoos/body shine/whatever underneath the lingerie.

Featured Outfit Details:
Featured Outfit: Lush in Emerald Green by ChronoSalp Galaxy (In World, SL Marketplace); also available (not shown) in Azure Blue, BlackSilver, Red Poppy and Tyrian White
Price: $150-250 each; $400 fat pack ($600 savings)
Pieces: 16, standard layers plus tattoo layer

Ratings:
Detailing: A- ChronoSalp’s texture work on the lace is excellent. The satin bra cups are a little too uniform, but it still pulls of the shiny-but-not-latex look well. My only real beef is the bra straps disappearing somewhat and the band-like shape of the garter belt.
Prim Attachments: Not Applicable
Resizing Scripts: Not Applicable
Tattoo Friendly: Somewhat. The bra is entirely tattoo friendly, but you’ll have to choose between the panty or the garter for lower body tattoos. There is a bra and panty combo, but it’s made for the tattoo layer, which doesn’t really help for tattoos.
Curvy Girl Friendly: Yes
Sim Rating: PG
