I’m Back And Blogging

After a longer vacation from blogging than intended, I decided to start back up.  I decided to dress up in something that would be perfect for a business luncheon, social or a meet & greet.  The outfit is perfect to the new Sugar which is all about work, work, work.  As usual, the colors I chose are black and white  and I decided to do a mix of old and new.   My favorite new piece in this outfit is the necklace from LaGyo.  Gyorgyna is amazingly talented and I am always completely honored to wear her pieces.

 Just a little bit of newness to share with this outfit. (Warning this is a quick post after a LONG weekend)  The first thing I’m going to mention are the amazing Bax Coen Prestige Boots.  Bax never fails to dissapoint I went forever without taking off my ankle boots upon their release, and it looks like I’ve got some knee high boots to wear for days on end.  Not only are the textures and fit amazing, but I am always unbelievably impressed with the work that goes into the scripting of Bax’s objects making them completely versatile and unique to each owner.  I had to buy both colors offered in both Black and White as I stood in the store completely unable to decide.

New from Chikka Designs is the lovely leather jacket.  Which for once I chose in a color other than Black or Grey, and I decided with purple.  I’m so thrilled with my choice.  I love this jacket.  And it’s definately fun to add a little color to my wardrobe.   I feel so “I’m a business woman that just got off of work and now I’m ready to hit the town and have fun!”

Myself and 6 other Miss Virtual World 2010 Finalists all decided to have an impromptu meet and greet of fun and dance at Seven Ultra Lounge during their last weekend.  It’s very sad to see this place go 😦  But, I can already tell I am going to have so much fun with these ladies, some of the most beautiful and stylish girls on the grid.  We had a blast, and I’m pretty sure the girls partied all night even though I went to bed quite a bit earlier than the rest.  Here’s the outfit that I wore and all pictures were taken at Seven Ultra Lounge.

I just couldn’t resist blogging this look any longer.   I am a Miss Virtual World 2010 Finalist and this is the outfit I wore for the audition.  I love this look so much and I just can’t describe the excitement I’ve had these last weeks knowing that I’m a finalist.  I’m so honored to be able to work with some of the most beautiful, talented ladies in all of SLand.  I also want to say how thankful I am to all of my friends that helped encourage me, offered up all the advice they could, graciously tp’d me when I needed a last minute second opinion, and one great friend that even made me a custom piece of jewelry.  And last but not least a HUGE Thank You to Roxe Brimmer for volunteering her photographic skills for this post.

An entirely different look for me, you all know how I just love playing around with me looks.  Lots of new goodies in this outfit!  First off the hair.  Glorious newness from Vanity Hair by Tabata Jewell.  I love Vanity Hair.  Tabata has an amazing gift for capturing movement in her hair, and I’m never dissapointed.  Vanity Hair definately makes heads turn towards you.  I experimented with a much different and darker skin tone because I am still just obsessed with these new Chaisuki skins.  Beautiful!   These lovely poses are not yet released, and are part of  a project that my very favorite pose designer is working on.  I’ll be showing you more of these and letting you in on who made them as these are developed. 🙂

Site Changes – Calling All Photographers!

 Snapshot_004

With the closing of Fashionphiles, I have decided to add some of the feature posts that I wrote on that site to this site as well.  And, after an experiment this week, I’ve decided to do something completely different than any other blog that I know of.

So, from here on out you can see the following pieces on GumboGlam.

1. Who Designed it Better/Who Wore it Better – For those that didn’t read these.  Who designed it better was when I took 2 designers similar designs and opened a vote of which was best.  Who Wore it Better was the same concept of open vote but it was myself and Lourdes accessorizing the heck out of the same outfit.  Both featured blogs were super fun to write and participate in and I don’t want to lose them.

2. The Countdown – I haven’t forgotten about my countdown of favorite things.  I have 5 left to write.  These have been very popular, and I will make it all the way to my #1 favorite thing in SL

3. Guest Photographers *New* – I experimented this week with Guest Photographers, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  So, I’m opening the opportunity for any SL photographer with interest.  I’ve long felt that the fashion industry is so much more than just the clothing, and the photography plays a HUGE part.  What I’m doing is allowing a photographer to shoot my style of the day, edit to their photographic preference, and then I use those pictures for this blog.  The photographer gets exposure on Gumbo Glam, The Fashion Feeds, Flickr, & Plurk.  It’s a greatchance to build your portfolio and clients.  This is not just open for established photographers, I want to give upcoming photographers a chance to show off their talent.  If you are interested, please leave a comment or IM me in world.  

That’s all for now!  I hope that ya’ll are excited about the additions and help participate with much enjoyment 🙂

First of all, I would like to introduce you to my guest photographer for today Miss Klet Glas.  She did some amazing work didn’t she?  Just simply beautiful.  Thank You so much Klet!

I have so many mixed emotions about the ensemble I’ve put together for all my readers today.  Most of the items are review copies, so my first emotions are grateful and thankful.  But, I have included some pieces from the soon to be closed Crimson Shadow sim so there is some sadness attached as well.  However, I got the Crimson Shadow items for only 50L so that of course is happiness.  Without further statement of my emotions let the ensemble information begin.

It started with a top, well actually a dress to be exact.  Thora was kind enough to send me over some review copies, and one of those items was the new Lelutka QI Dress in deep pink.  The dress is fabulous, but everyone knows I can never wear something “off the rack.”  And now we come to the skirt. Monica sent me some wonderful pieces from her Miamai Fashion Creations.  This is from the Vanita Black Gown and it is beautiful.  145 prims!  Amazing job, it’s just simply beautiful.  (You’ll be seeing more designs of hers from me in upcoming blogs.)  The hair was a gift from amazing designer Jeanie Valois of Posh and it is Elle Loves Bows in Charcoal.  Just adorable and amazing, like all of her hair.  And, of course, in following with nearly all of my previous blogs I am wearing a skin from the oBscene by the outstandingly talented Kuja Akina.  This skin is Braelyn – Beda in Tone 2 and should be available for purchase very soon.  Oh, and can you believe I don’t have to talk about shoes???
