evie’s closet Lucky Chair has been relocated — thanks, Gogo!

The response to the lucky chair at Evie’s Closet has been so overwhelming, that Evie posted this in her group not too long ago:

So.. I just woke up, andย  it seems the response to the Lucky Chair Gown was so overwhelming, it wreaked some havoc with the Sim.

Not something I anticipated… and the Sim Owner had to return the Chair to my Inventory.

Please give me a day or two to find a solution, and I will make the chair available for as many days AFTER October 31st to compensate.

Frustrating, but I thank you for your patience and understanding. :/

I was like, oh noes ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  But then good news followed that rather quickly!

The lovely, and generous Gorgeous Yongho has offered the Lucky Chair a place on the Juicy Sims!ย  *If you see her, PLEASE thank her effusively*

Attached is a LM…. It will bring you right here. Please pass it on to those people NOT in the Group, who might need to know, and thank you SO much again, for your patience! xoxo

Yay, thank you Evie and thank you Gogo!ย  <333ย  Now my altie can get a crack at getting the gown too :p

In case you haven’t seen the gown yet, here it is again:

AWESOME STORE ALERT & Fashion Vote: D!FF

I’ll explain the title of this post in a bit, but first let’s cover the important stuff. ๐Ÿ˜€

What do you get when you mix four women, two to three years of development experience cultivated on IMVU, and relatively new statuses on Second Life with rez-days dating back to just this past May, August, and as recently as this month?

The answer: a breath of fresh air in the SL fashion scene known as D!FF.

Earlier today when I met up with my friend Gogo, she was wearing a cool T-shirt paired with these perfect skinny jeans that she said she’d just gotten at a store called D!FF, located on the Juicy sim. Naturally, I had to go check the store out for myself. Here are some of the goodies I picked up while there ๐Ÿ˜€ (clicking on the images will take you to their respective flickr pages):

diff_stripe sweater

The D!FF Stripe*d Sweatars (yep, that’s how it’s spelled) come in a pack of three, colored grey, olive, and peachy. You can see the attention to detail on these off-the-shoulder sweaters — the sweater’s texture doesn’t simply abruptly start and end at the neckline and hem; rather there is a ribbed knit band that circles the shoulders, wrists, and waist.

diff_jeans

Next up, we have the D!FF Blue-ee Darke*d Jeans, a pair of skinny dark jeans that are destined to become one of my wardrobe staples. I’m already imagining the possibilities with these jeans… Ever admired that skinny jeans + baggy shirt + big bag + pumps + messy yet ostensibly sexy hair look that Kate Moss pulls off with utter ease? These are the jeans to use to emulate that look. I’m already thinking about how these will go perfect with my Enkythings Talyn pumps, a prim scarf from perhaps BP* or Petit Ange, and a longish type of shirt/blouse like Blaze’s Boyfriend Buttondown or Last Call’s Carolynn Ruffled Shirt, or perhaps Last Call’s Starley II Mini Sweater Dress (just don’t forget to wear your dress shape with that). Top if off with Naughty Designs’ Nicole sculpty hairstyle, aviators like primOptic’s rebans, and a big bag… and you’re set!

Just as a side note, one of the girls at D!FF shared that they will be working on releasing these jeans in different colors. W00t! ๐Ÿ˜€

diff_tees1 diff_tees2 diff_tees3

You can’t have jeans without some T-shirts to go with it, of course, and D!FF has got you covered. Their tees range from the silly and playful such as the I LOVE NERDS tee and the White Rehab*d Tee, to the somewhat understated yet elegant Circle Tree*d Tees that come in red, blue, green, and grey.

diff_free and cami

I’m not sure which item I like better; the jeans or this super cute-yet-sexy Pink Bra*d Cami. Again, the attention to texturing details is evident on this piece. The slight sheen on the black bra that boldly peeks out at the top combined with the shading on the pink cami itself gives the distinct impression of a push-up bra, and the subtle shadows and highlights drawn across the cami suggests the snug fit of the material as it is stretched over the torso.

And is a store really a store in SL if it doesn’t offer at least one or two freebies? D!FF makes this cute Vintage Mustard Bow Top available for L$0, which you can grab from the sign that’s located at the entrance to the store.

UPDATE… It might be a little confusing, trying to locate the freebie. You must click on the word “free” on the sign in order to get the items, clicking on any other part of the sign will not work. ๐Ÿ™‚

Pay a visit to D!FF in the Juicy sim to find these goodies and more: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Juicy/197/152/22

What we’re wearing:
Gogo is wearing ETD Loopy hairstyle in platinum, MinnuModel Pale SkinGloss in Rain, and her own custom shape. I’m wearing ETD Hailey hairstyle in chestnut, Celestial Studio Vogue skin in Smoky Noir Champagne, Enkythings Talyn Black pumps, Nea-Ban Retro Standard scripted glasses, and Mela’s Pacific Rose body shape.

All right, I said at the start of the post that I’d explain the title a bit more. So far, other than D!FF I’ve done only one other “awesome store alert” posting on this blog. I’ve created an Awesome Store Alert category for future alerts. Whenever I come across a store that is relatively new on the scene and I feel is deserving of more attention and should be watched for future releases, I’ll write about it and post to this category.

The Fashion Vote bit is based on the concept of dollar voting. What is dollar voting? It’s basically the idea that whenever we buy something, we are casting dollar votes for it. Here, Wikipedia explains it much better than I’m capable of doing at this time :-p Fashion Vote blog posts will simply be a review/recap of avatar appearance-related items that I’ve purchased, or “voted” for. The idea is that by sharing what I’ve bought, I’m sharing what I feel are items that are noteworthy and deserving of people’s money. Keep an eye out on this category; there will be other people contributing to this as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

new machinima from Gogo

Gogo’s latest vid takes place at Versailles… in SL, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What I really like about this vid is that it showcases some of the amazing content creating talent that is present in SL. Seriously, check that build out! And the clothes they’re wearing, and the wigs! I recognize the yellow gown as coming from Nicky Ree (one of my favorite SL designers ever), but I’m not sure about the clothes worn by the other two avis; I’ll update this post after I ask her.

Plus I โค this vid for using one of my favorite Strokes songs. ๐Ÿ˜€ Enjoy!

Gogolita is Genie In A Bottle

Gogo (or Gorgeous Yongho, or Gogolita ^_^ ) just posted another machinima video on her channel! This time she and Gallia Plubeau have donned costumes reminiscent of Barbara Eden in I Dream Of Jeannie, with a matching bottle house to boot. ๐Ÿ˜€ The video is set to the track Genie In A Bottle, by Christina Aguilera.

Enjoy!

Gogolita at Little Heaven

I’m supposed to be leaving for dinner but I decided to take a quick peek at YouTube first and discovered that my friend Gogo has uploaded a new machinima. It was filmed entirely at the Little Heaven sim (a great store, btw), which has some amazing textures and a dark sort of brooding, almost dystopian-urban feel… excellent choice for the song she set the video to.

It’s my favorite vid from Gogo thus far ๐Ÿ˜€
