Fashion Spotlight on Trendy Avatars- Debby Sharma Reporting...

A silk drape tied in a knot, feathers with flowers stuck to the head dress, a woollen collar or perhaps a simple t-shirt and rugged jeans. What’s your style?

I interviewed a few random people asking them about their personal style statement, their favorite shopping destinations and their pick on colors for the upcoming season, Autumn.

 With me, you will learn about Caoimhe Lionheart, Molly Legendoll, Strawberry Singh and Tadeu Gartner.

Debby Sharma: How would you define your personal style? Does it change with the seasons?
Caoimhe Lionheart:  I would have to say my personal style is a tad bit left of centre. I don’t “fit” into any certain style. I am too gawky and awkward to be considered elegant, nor am I classic, casual, or girl next door. Heck, I’ve even been known to model menswear a time or two... or three. I would have to say I have an offbeat whimsical style. Dare I say eccentric? When I post a blog for a designer I am at the whims of the designer as their clothes are what should be centre-stage and I am just a mannequin, but if you look at the personally styled blog pics that give me more freedom to play, I always try to put a more artistic flair to the looks. I don’t really style for the seasons, I would say I am more of a mood stylist. I style by my mood.

Debby Sharma: How often do you go shopping for your clothes and accessories?
Caoimhe Lionheart: Actually, believe it or not, I don’t go out shopping often at all. Like in RL I do a lot of “online” shopping, sort of catalogue shopping the marketplace.  Often designers will give me things, which is quite enjoyable. And I imagine I will have to wander out a bit more now that I’ve left most of my blog groups, but for now I hop here or there if I have to but otherwise I just dig into my inventory and play with what’s there. I trek out into the world on occasion when I am trying to find the perfect “something” that an outfit is lacking, but that’s about it. I am sooooOOooo boring in reality.  

Debby Sharma: Can you give me a rundown of your current outfit including shoes?
Caoimhe Lionheart: I am really weird. Sometimes when I style something it takes me a few days to pull the entire look together. It’s one of the reasons I recently made the decision to blog less than my typical every day upload. Lately when I was blogging daily I was no longer enjoying it, or even liking the pictures very much because I wasn’t given the chance to style them in a “Cao-like” way. I will still have to blog daily for events, like the upcoming “Rock Your Rack” event (starts September1st!)  benefitting Breast Cancer Awareness, but for the most part, I can be in any state of undress, or dress at any given moment. Heck, I’ve even been known to shop shoo-less and wearing knickers a time or two, it’s actually kind of expected of me and I’d sure hate to disappoint anyone! So to answer your question, right now I am wearing “Ison’s” gold embellished divine bustier with Slink feet and hands, [Mandala] ears, and shoo-less. Though, to tell a little secret on myself, unless someone gives me shoos to blog I never wear them. I know! So incredibly ungirl-like! My avatar is so much like me; we are kindred’s, she and I. And I like to feel my walk through life, learning my correct path by the feel of it underfoot and my Lil Cao is much the same way. It’s brought us from there to here, so it must be okay.
Style card other than the items mentioned above:
Hair: Tuty's, Adorable
Hat: Bliss Couture, Florentine
Stole: [LWL], Vesuvias, (part of)
Top:  Ison, Divine Bustier  **Collabor88**
Skirt: Gizza, tutu

Debby Sharma: Where do you like to shop?
Caoimhe Lionheart:  I have so many favorite designers I wouldn’t dare make a list just in case one momentarily slips my mind. I can be a forgetful little chit like that. I walk around my real life writing little Cao notes all the time but still sometimes things slip by me. But I will tell you this; I am madly in love with shape. If you see a designer who creates items that appear 3 dimensional with unusual shapes, quirky-ness or outlandishly different, I’m there! The hauter, the better as couture fits my personality to a “T”. It is something I feel deep in my soul, I mean, I can wear off the rack in real life, why shouldn’t I expect more than prêt-à-porter in my Second Life?

Debby Sharma: With autumn fast approaching what colors and trends do you think will be most popular?
Caoimhe Lionheart:  If the designers follow the actual real world pantone color trends we should be seeing colors in pastels like a peachy nude, lavenders and lilacs, softer colors will be big, as well at the jewel tones, like emerald, cranberry and hot pinks. Gone is the drab standard red and blacks of winter to be replaced with cerulean, fuchsia and scrumptious tangerines. From what I have researched, real world fashion is showing a lot of boxier styles, silks, leathers, feathers, and the always romantic laces, so I do hope Second Life will follow suit. I simply love designs with a soft see-thru lace offering a peek of skin here or there.

Debby Sharma: How would you define your personal style? Does it change with the seasons?
Molly Legendol: As I like to be unique and different I can't limit myself, saying that my style is "THIS". Because I like to mix things that might not go together and turn them into a whole new concept. Loose and tight, something cute with a fetish accessories or a very sexy dress with funny hair and a baby face skins. Therefore my style does not change according to seasons but the gifts have been given. I don't follow recent trends per se. My motto is "find your own style, be the trend!"

Debby Sharma: How often do you go shopping for your clothes and accessories?
Molly Legendol: As I mentioned, not being the crazy followers of new trends, Mostly I try to follow, gift hunts, group gifts, freebies with quality etc. to combine them. Results are really nice and I'd like to share them in my blog to show my friends what can be done without spending any money. If you don’t have a credit card, also you can looking nice in sl.

Debby Sharma: Where do you like to shop?
Molly Legendol: I visit all stores and some of them display very nice gifts. Of course I have my favourites as well which are highly popular. Interestingly those stores do not display gifts as they are already popular and when they do, they only display the ones that are not good quality. this should not be only an ad but also encouragement for the future customers and appreciation for the loyal ones. I believe all big brands must stop being stingy and put gifts. with all due respect I will refuse to give names of the brands which refrain from gifts but there are so many nice examples to follow such as Reign, Chary, Analog Dog, Soonsiki, Moon, N-core, Pr!tty, PANIK, Cubic Cherry Kre-ations etc., when they give gifts they do not compromise the quality and I would like the thank them for myself and on behalf of their members.

Debby Sharma: With autumn fast approaching what colors and trends do you think will be most popular?
Molly Legendol: Short dresses, long boots and wide collar will take ladies to the fashion of 60's. For the colour as usual we will not give up the flare of the metallic gold. other than this military green and I am waiting to see the pastel colours with furs and clothes with feathers. Accessories, unlike we get use to see on our neck and arms, strikingly will be used on the face, hair and hats with much larger sizes.

Debby Sharma: How would you define your personal style? Does it change with the seasons?
Strawberry Singh:  In SL, I don't really have a particular style and it doesn't change that often within the seasons. In winter I may wear more layers, that's about it, but style stays similar. I tend to lean towards an ethnic style if anything. In the real world, I am usually a very casual, tanks, yoga pants, denim, sneakers and flats kind of girl. 

Debby Sharma: How often do you go shopping for your clothes and accessories?
Strawberry Singh: As often as I get the chance, few times a week for sure. If there is a big event, I try to go there as well. I am a bit addicted to skins so I actually demo and buy skins a lot, even if I tend to not wear them more than once. 

Debby Sharma: Can you give me a rundown of your current outfit including shoes?
Strawberry Singh: A friend actually took me sailing this weekend in SL so I'm just wearing a tank, jeans and sneakers. I have no idea what people wear when they go sailing, *laughs. I did wear a life jacket that he gave me, but I am not wearing it in the picture. I've attached a quick snapshot of what I'm wearing.

Debby Sharma: With autumn fast approaching what colors and trends do you think will be most popular?
Strawberry Singh:  I never know what's popular, but I myself tend to gravitate earthy tones, not only in autumn though. I love earthy tones throughout the year. I also love white.

According to each season, I will research what the current fashion trends and of course, styling to make it with my face.
