Something Old Something New

What an incredible Month it has been, so many events and Grand Openings, New Lines and Incredible New Stores. Today though its something Old, Something New Nothing Borrowed and Something Blue.

The Something Old is the incredible Designers featured today. Callie Cline, Rita Groshomme, Gala Phoenix and Nebulosus Severine with the exception of JB Gazov, but then he is over a year old so by Phils Place standards he can be oldish too :o).

With the Black Swan Sim having an incredible opening this week and many incredible Designers being invited to create items incorporating the theme, it's been a wonderful week for really dressing up and no better way to celebrate New Clothes , than with New Skins and New Hair - actually technically most of the styles of hair are older but New to me so that counts :P.

So with the Grand Opening of the New Curio Sim- a fantastic build housing the talent of Rita Groshomme and Gala Phoenix - merging those beauties with the stunning Swan Song set by Callie Cline.

This wonderful set comes with so many options of wear, that having so many ravishing skins and new locks just made it even more fun to show.

The set has wonderful feather work on the three different length skirts , its like being encased on a Black Swans wings, a stunning visual especially in the gown length version.

The boostier style top is a lovely velvet texture, with an option of a belted waist look with double straps and buckles just under the empire line of the dress.

The extras to this set also are just wonderful , with the Incredible Full Lashes you see in the second pic tinted a sea green to co-ordinate with the beautiful green/blue running through the feathers on the sleeves, topped with the incredible pearls.

Also a wonderful pearl bangle and the stunningly chunky Water Ring - this one wont help you float in water though. The other pieces are from the resplendent Swans Tears set by Nebulosus Severine, absolutely stunning is this set and the matching with Callie Clines Swan Song is just a partnership made in wonderland.

Now looking at the info in Nebulosus's profile it appears there is no store at the moment - cries - so you MUST MUST get your hands on this set while at Black Swan, because it could possibly be not for sale afterwards - don't quote me on that I am only going by profile.

The set compliments not only this set but just so many other things as well, there are two necklaces and two earrings options as well as prim eyes in the same blue- I didn't wear those as I know I would forget to change back. The jewelry is just wonderful and the soft shimmery glow to the vials holding the precious Swans Tears are just stunning.
As well as the Feather skirts you also get the sculpted mini which is very cute, and with or without the incredible boa like sides and train you will have lots of fun and compliments on this set.

Now I was lucky enough to get into Curio late Friday night, so Kit and I had it all to ourselves for a while, we had a blast in that luxurious Mansion trying on hair and skins for hours.

As soon as I got to the hair section I saw a style that I knew was so Kit and well since I have been back it seems to be the hair everyone is going to love and rightly so.

The stunning Gertrude style is the style at the very top of the post and isn't it just adorable. Kit was wearing a cat back pack at the time and she totally looked like a porceline doll come to life, with the I am wearing the beautiful Gertrude hairRusset Makeup in the Classic Tone from Gala.

The tones are so wonderful and sooooo many to choose from. I adore the make up on all of them , Russet is a favourite for its beautiful rich glossy browns.
The Next hair is Gala 2 I just love the length and those thick luscious bangs , with the incredible Scene Make up in the Ebon tone , I couldn't resist the combination, the lips the eyes and that incredible tone , if you are looking for a darker skin this is a MUST GRAB DEMO tone for you.

Gala is the next style, this has been around for a long time this style and it was a huge hit last year, time to resurect it says me lol, its so delish and cutsie, again a total Doll come to life style , and the skin OMGosh , I couldn't resist the heavenly Basic Pack 1 in Luster tone when I saw this Emerald skin , its just beautiful and goes so well with my eyes, and the red in those lips is just yum, all the skins in the new range are MOD , so you can slightly alter the lips in them , just make a copy and play with the lip colour sliders , you get more BANG for your Buck that way.

Next is Spikey ,and it certainly is , so cute and well spikey lol, with the absolutely lustrous Nocturnal Make Up I was in blue heaven, Gala has an incredible talent at shimmery make ups for the eyes , that blue is just gorgeous, definitely another Must Have , well all of them are actually if you want to be particular about it lol.

Sleek Bob the next style is a short style variation of the longer Snood hair I have worn many times in the past , the 1920's look just shines with the pearls and the glamorous gown of the Swan Song set. Wonderful Juxt make up with again a delightful shimmer effect making that smokey look we all love just a little bit more luxurious.

Lastly for the hair we have the Creepy Bun, just the name makes it a must, those thick falls of hair at the front then pulled back into a tendril spilling interwoven bun give it so much class with out being conservative. The Rosette Make up just finishes off the look in the Hazel tone another lovely darker tone.

All the shoes are from the talented creator of J's the Belted Goth boots I still have on as I love them so much , the Gladiator Sandals and the Ribbon Goth Bow boots again are a delight , with the options of so many different looks in each pair of boots they are so yummy to own. Tassel Wedge Sandals are hard to ever not wear, I know some girls who wont take them off ever ♥ and the lovely Backband heels are so cute in their strappy pointed style. ALl of J's shoes have DEMOS so make sure you grab them all and try them on and see how wonderful they are.

TP To :
