Women and shoes: A love affair in pairs no different in SL than in RL ...

For women shoes can become an all-consuming obsession. In RL some shoes can cost a fortune; yet while money itself does not bring happiness, a pair of new shoes brings on a kind of exaltation. Unlike clothes, shoes have a distinct advantage. Whether you're fat or thin, short or tall, beautiful or ugly, you can buy all the shoes your heart desires. They are capable of making you feel sexy, elegant or sporty at a single stroke. But in Second Life the fat thin rationale does not fly, yet we are still as obsessed about our shoes as we are in RL.

In RL we all aspire to owning Hermes, Gucci, Caovilla, Ferragamo, Blahnik, Laboutin, in SL it is Stiletto Moody, Maiyterya and FM Shoes.

Our intimate relationship with shoes begins shortly after we learn to walk. As soon as we want to feel "grown-up," we slip on a pair of our mother's shoes, preferably high heels, instantly heightening our sense of what it means to be female. And then what happens? We grow up and get to be the same size as Mummy and our personality begins to assert itself with the first independent purchase of shoes. As adults, we ask shoes to be our representatives. At any given moment, they are indicators of our age, mood and desires.

More than anything else, women's shoes speak the language of sex. You don't have to be a moralist or an anthropologist in order to understand the message transmitted by a girl in a pair of rubber-soled loafers versus one wearing noisy stilettos. But that's only a first impression. That old chestnut (heels = sex goddess, flats = nun) is constantly challenged by variations in fashion and customs. And yet, one thing remains certain: a high-heeled shoe is the object of apparel that - more than any other - marks the difference between men and women.

Shoes have featured prominently in the popular female narrative, be they Cinderella's glass slippers (clearly a symbol of virginity) or the stilettos worn by the metropolitan predators of "Sex and the City" - women who share two great weaknesses: men and shoes.

What’s more what about all the options we have since we have the option of wearing skirts, pants, or three-quarter length pants and that opens up all sorts of shoe possibilities. Then there are the seasonal choices we have to make, i.e. in the summer, we can wear open-toed shoes, in the fall we can wear pumps, and in the winter we can wear boots.

So with that alone, we have to have a black, brown, and a neutral pair of each type. That is nine pairs right there. Those shoes also double as going out shoes. Then we must have nice shoes in the event we have to wear an evening dress somewhere. We have a pair for the winter and the summer. Then, we have our sneakers. We have our working out sneakers and our stylish sneakers. Then we have an array of flip flops and sandals. So to our men out there, you see how we easily rack up that many shoes. ...It’s all about options.

FASHION- Insight Lacy Muircastle Reporting ...

Ms Virtual World 2011
Well it is that time again – how time flies. 30 gorgeous ladies have been selected as the finalists for the 2011 MSW Pageant and over the next week or two I will introduce theses lovely ladies to you. The event is to take place on the 19th December 2010.

So without any further ado it is my privilege to introduce to you:

Miss Chile - Mel Endrezzi

Mel arrived in Second Life on the 21 March 2009. She has by no means rested on her laurels in her time here and is a professional runway, print, video and live model. Mel did her training as a runway model with Laver Model Academy under the guidance of Dagda Burner.

Mel is affiliated to many model agencies such as Dejavouge, Belle, Maritima, Arcobalenco, Rema Elite and King of Queens. She also currently manages Tropical Model Agency.

She loves meeting new people and finds it truly amazing that you can meet people from all around the world here and that distance is not an issue. She believes that Second Life gives everyone the opportunity to live out their dreams.

She has been inspired by many wonderful people in SL and finds the creativity portrayed in SL astounding. Mel has great admiration for people with positive energy and good ideas and who can translate those into SL. Mel is able to take this inspiration from SL and incorporate it into her RL design career.

Mel’s virtual life style is inspired by the colours of the season. She believes that fashion is not just about going to a store with good designs to spend money, she believes that fashion is a lifestyle.

Creativity is clearly important in beautiful Mel’s life as Tempura Japan is her favourite place in Second Life and when I asked her why she replied “Tempura Island is my favourite place in SL for their creativity in designing absolute reference to the nature, space and deep time peace.”

Mel is very excited to be one of the official candidates for this year’s pageant and she says that it is one of the most wonderful events in SL and the people who run it are so lovely.

Mel we wish you all the very best!

Women learn about makeup, skin care, nail care, and ways to deal with hair loss such as wigs, turbans and scarves. There are also self-help materials available for men going through treatment.

SL VENUES:Nicci Winsmore's World of Art and Fashion - Sandy Demina Reporting....

Nicci Winsmore-Trees in light
Staff Reporter
• Monday, October 25, 2010
  Through the experimentation of forms, of colors and of textures all artists try to communicate their emotions and Second Life is a great place for all the ones caught up by their (first) life and who ended up doing something different... to their regrets.

This is the story of one of them, Nicci Winsmore has been enjoying art since she was very young. Her aunt even bought her a sketch book when she was about ten, feeling that she might do something with it.

But her true love was born when a professional photographer visited her high school and talked about his profession. This was it and she thereafter pursued photography as a passion.

Nicci Winsmore (aka Nicole Perrot) loves representing nature through her viewfinder. She has been taking pictures in various parts of the USA including California and New Mexico. She tries to keep her photography as real as possible without using any enhancements except for contrast and light with Photoshop. What you see is mostly what you should get. Her influences are many but her main one is Ansel Adams.  
Nicci runs now in Second Life a sim named" World of art and fashion"( ).It’s a very friendly place with a great atmosphere, where she lays down a stream-of-consciousness cascade of photographica priced by the yard.Worth a look.All art work in her gallery is original and catchy.

Currently she assembled a mix of new artists as well as old favorites: Fiona Letner, Oxil Zane, Toad Laloix, Ichiko Miles, Soul Yheng, Sandralee Palianta, , Ganso Artis, Giovanna Cerise, Tegan Jenvieve, Carley Noonan, Kyr Art/GeejAnn Blackadder, Artman Diavolo and Madison Arnahan.Nicci of course display in her gallery her works too.
We had a conversation about her (second) life and her passions.

FASHION: All that glitters ... Lacy Muircastle reporting

I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number of carats in a diamond. ~Mae West

Girls, girls, girls, The Beauty and the Beast Jewelry Fair is on the go at the moment and runs until the 17th October and wow it is spectacular.  I promise that you will not be disappointed, just make sure that you take Mr. Moneybags with you!!!
I caught up with one of the fair's sponsonsor's Jori Watler of alaMood Boutique. We all know that diamonds are a girl’s best friend and Jori certainly knows how best to present said diamonds (and all sorts of other glorious pieces too).

Jori said "alaMood is a proud sponsor of the “Beauty and the Beast” jewellery fair and the charity being supported by the fair is OXFAM International which is a confederation of 14 like-minded organizations working together to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice is just such a worthwhile cause." Time to pay a visit to the fair then girls, don't you think?  The fair enables jewellery designers to showcase their sense of style all in one location.
Jori designs and creates beautiful jewellery that delights people and enables them to express their love and appreciation. She has just released her Diamante range - Luxurious platinum and sparkling diamonds placed in a striking burst design. The full ensemble consists of a Choker, drop earrings, cocktail rings, and headpiece. Come to the jewellery fair to see it for yourself.

 If you can’t get to the jewellery fair then swing past the alaMood Boutique,  At alaMood their customers are highly valued and they offer a unique customer reward concept which rewards you as you spend!! You can also earn store credit. Visit their main store for more information.

FASHION: Modavia Fashion Week 2010 sizzles - Lacy Muircastle Reporting ...

Staff Reporter
• Monday, September 13, 2010
Modavia Fashion Week 2010 got off to an impressive start with the media preview highlights event that both Lanai and I attended. Modavia Fashion week coincides with the real world fashion week in New York (ooh and Vogue.Com being relaunched too!! The site is quoted as ‘pushing interactive and social boundaries’.)
But onto the fashion week at hand. Hat’s off to the Modavia team that have put the fashion week together, they have done an absolutely phenomenal job and their efforts are definitely a tribute the the RL fashion week currently on the go in New York.

Lanai and I were literally gobsmacked at the professionalism of the launch event. The seamless running of the launch highlights show, the stunning music and the stark but stylish decor all worked together to make a memorable occasion.
