What do Zaara and Violator have in common? Well this outfit for one.

I love Violator, as any one of my friends can tell you, but I also love every other store represented in this outfit. In this outfit, Violator, instead of being the show stopping, blast off avante garde gown usually featured, the brand is taking the back seat to Zaara's wrap dress. But it is setting it off perfectly.
The 24's Wow! shoes also are a huge asset, however this outfit could not live without Miamai's Deroke playsuit black base underneath.

Everyone of these designers brings something special to the table, and are truly at the helm of fashion. I love to see them all together, especially with Vanity Hair's gorgeous dreadlocks. They are highly detailed, and while some of the styles are more intricate in nature, others are more elegant. So buy up girls, and take advantage of what Miss Jewell is offering to you.

Glam Affair skins...well there is not much you can go wrong with there, and it was a gift!

I was hit over the head by a dear friend for just now learning about Shade Thorn and then I promptly hit myself over the head. How could I not have known the beauty, and unique appeal of their products? Well I do now, and my linden account is going to suffer for it.

All of these stores are worth every single linden you spend in them. Happy Shopping!

Tae Raided Sherlock's Closet, But Her Style Is Not Elementary.

Model, stylist, and teacher Taellinu Aichi showed me this fantastic outfit she put together and I fell in love with it. Refined, yet with the country-side hunting air. The hat lends a nice Ascot feel.

I believe Mr. Watson would fall in love.

The time has come. Only one will be the Face of one of the most loved SL Couture houses.
Bliss Couture crowns a wonderful 2010 with the event that will unveal who will represent the brand in the 2011.
We are looking for a lady that will embody the style of our label, the luxury and elegance of our creations, and be the essence of Bliss Couture.
Our most important model search of the year has started last july and ended in november, with the selection of 20 finalists. Like in the past year we would like to thank all the entries for the outstanding quality of the photos and stylings submitted, not only for the high number, over 350, that really makes us grateful and proud. You all did great, and again it’s been very hard to choose only a few. This is the finalist names list:
Amazon Silverweb
Arkaine Cazalet
blackLiquid Tokyoska
Bodza Mubble
Diconay Boa
didem Zeplin
Echo Xigalia
Elena Ewing
Gamp Lane
Imani Enzo

Mely Gibbs
Nadja Baxter
Nala Kurka

A dazzling jury, composed by Cala Rossini, Julie Hastings, Frolic Mills, Kyrie Source and Amutey DeCuir will choose the winner.
MISS BLISS COUTURE 2011 will be crown with an exclusive diamond jewelry set from Virtual Impressions. She will be also be given all the Bliss Couture’s releases throughout her reign (one year), 30.000L Cash Prize and of course the title of Miss Bliss 2011.
The winner will also receive an invitation to Boulevard Agency and an interview for BOSL Magazine.
The top 10 finalists will receive a professional photoshoot, and their choice of any one fatpack of a new release Bliss Couture dress or outfit.
The top 5 finalists will all become Bliss Couture Models, and be hired for various modeling work within the company. In addition to the prizes for the top 10, the top 5 girls will also receive a 5000L gift card each from Bliss Couture.
Truly an unforgettable year, with Mimmi Boa as flawless Miss Bliss Couture 2010 and the incredible achievement of 30.000 members (inworld group and subscriber).
In february we celebrated Valentine’s with a double fashion show all in pink, the brand colour.
March has been the month of our Two Years Anniversary, honoured with the new flagship store at our Gown sim, remodelled with a new fashion and contemporary style, and the presentation on its runway garden of the Bridal Gowns white beauty beside a special selection of our most famous couture pieces.
Summer has been very hot on the Bliss Couture’s side with the beginning of our Model Search of the year, that selected the beautiful finalists in the past five months. But July has been also the month of the BLISS COUTURE HAIR launch, an exciting concept of sculptural hairstyles very appreciated by our dolls since the first hours of the exclusive saloon of the at the upper level of our main.
In September Bliss Couture presented its autumn/winter 2011 inspirations showing the most desirable proof of the designer’s talent during an intense calendar of events.
In December we launched BLISS COUTURE BASIC, during another show produced by our loved Mimmi Boa, Miss Bliss Couture 2010. Another small dream coming true, after the hair line, due to the enthusiasm and the endless creative talent of the founder and designer of the brand, Amutey DeCuir.
Bliss Couture started this incredible year with the unforgettable final event of Miss Bliss Couture 2010 held last january, with some of the most beautiful women in SL wearing the designs of the luxury brand on the Patch Thibaud Auditorium’s stage. We end the year again at the New Patch Thibaud Auditorium and cant wait to know who will be the next one.
Good luck to all the finalists!

thank you to Lybra Rage for the photo of the Final Event AD and to our enchanting Miss Bliss Couture 2010, Mimmi Boa, for modelling.


Miss 13 (Petra) Cortes One of the Friends Who Gives Me Guidance; Sit Down

"Honesty last longest but it is often how you bring honesty." -13 Cortes

Miss 13 (Petra) Cortes came over to my place for a little discussion on her recent achievements as well as to shed some light for me on the modelling world in a somewhat more formal way.
(Reorganized to fit into the correct categories, and edited for most spelling, punctuation, and paragraphs for an easier read.)

Serafina Ezvalt: hehe Well you take the chair then. Ill take the pillows
13 Cortes: Sits good :))
Serafina Ezvalt: It is from Jennaa's (Jennaa Loire) friend Jeannie's (Jeannie Svenson) shop.
13 Cortes: Oh nice designs
Serafina Ezvalt: I love the pillows and the wooden shoe rack behind it
13 Cortes: Ah yeah hihih now i see it. Its stuffed with shoes i bet

Serafina Ezvalt: Could you list the recent designers you have placed in contests with recently?
13 Cortes: Well won the african queen contest at Angel Dessous
13 Cortes: so i got to compete at the finale of Miss Angel dessous. You know the result. 1st runner-up.
Serafina Ezvalt: Oh yes...shouted yours a few times hehe
13 Cortes: hihih
13 Cortes: i saw
13 Cortes: huggies
Serafina Ezvalt: *blushes*
Serafina Ezvalt: *hugs back*
13 Cortes: a week prior i got to do BeStyle Miss 2011. known names in the contest, and ending behind one of the best SL models is good :)

Serafina Ezvalt:How did it feel to see your print ad?
13 Cortes: i became even a bit emotional:) My first add. And asked by the people themselves, Jesika and Rusch.
13 Cortes: Not a cast, not a contest, asked in the face :)
Serafina Ezvalt: Amazing...
13 Cortes: For them that meant I did things right, and hope I will in the future. [there is] another opportunity the 15th. Avenue, if we mess up in those shows it could be that the next time will be harder to cast.
Serafina Ezvalt: Oh yes the show!
Serafina Ezvalt: Yes...Avenue shows are very erm ---complex.
3 Cortes: i love all my agencies but Avenue. i dunno. its the Top, a SL dream i had when i started and it came true.
Serafina Ezvalt: It is and I have just ...I am still in shock they picked me for their program.


Serafina Ezvalt: So when I teleported into MiaMai, what made you help me with modelling advice? Did I seem like a lost puppy lol
13 Cortes: hahahah NONONOOOOOO not at all.
Serafina Ezvalt: Lol oh I am though
13 Cortes: I tend to do that with models ;) well with everyone who i can help in anyway.
13 Cortes: and if they want :)
13 Cortes: always helpfull if needed and wanted :) maybe i will become a teacher once when i am good enough
Serafina Ezvalt: I think you already are hun
Serafina Ezvalt: I must say I was shocked by your kindness, do I put it...easy going attitude? I felt like you reallly wanted to help.
13 Cortes: yeah you felt right
13 Cortes: i dont feel envy sera
13 Cortes: i dont feel jealousy
13 Cortes: i dont feel hate or something like that
13 Cortes: when someone is better they are better and i need to work harder :)
13 Cortes: when everything goes easy, its also easier to fall.
13 Cortes: i never had a teacher, a experienced one who helped or something like that, but i don't regret because this way i could create a own look instead of someones vison look.
13 Cortes: offcourse one can always make your own style, but when working hard and trying and trying you realy create YOU. we ALL work hard, one is better then the other or better said Different [It] has to do with SL time, how long, your bank account, which friends you have, how many known people you know. I dont know many known people. well i said hi and things, but Knowing them is something else. And there are 2 kinds of people: ones who like my name, and ones who don't:))
Serafina Ezvalt: Oh I think we all have negativity about what one is wearing or if they did that right ect, but to make it personal towards someone is upsetting to see. Exactly, people you know. The people up on the you often wonder if they would do what you do for others or if they are just too busy?
13 Cortes: i think not many sera, but this is me RL and Sl. Everyone has the right for a nice spot in the industry and such, especialy when they invest time, lindens. i am not more then a aspiring model. not more then you. and not less then anyone. we are the same working hard. we just have to get a chance to show ourselves.
Serafina Ezvalt: *nods* You and a few others I have been truly blessed to know.

Work Ethic and Behavior

13 Cortes: i dont have secrets. 1 secret i have hihihih
13 Cortes: my face mesurements
13 Cortes: thast all. we have to :) thast what seperates us
Serafina Ezvalt: Oh shapes...I am constantly tweaking since day one of sl...i am not sure i will ever get it right. Oh yes, my face is mine. heh
13 Cortes: we just dont know
13 Cortes: yup you are you :) keep it that way. a few days ago i changed a few small details again in my face :) we never stop. i think as long as we look like us its good. i have flappy ears now :)
Serafina Ezvalt: *smiles* I will. I am thinking a touch about the nose, but that is i think.
Serafina Ezvalt: HEHE I saw!
Serafina Ezvalt: They are adorable!
13 Cortes: giggles thxx
Serafina Ezvalt: Mine are too big, thank you for reminding me
13 Cortes: wasn't sure about them, but when i looked at them a few minutes i said YES its me :)
Serafina Ezvalt: \o/

13 Cortes: working hard and be nice always works
13 Cortes: it is seen
13 Cortes: it is noticed, even when you think noone looks :)


Serafina Ezvalt: The 'graduation' show will be my first and I am so scared 13...what should I do to settle it down?
13 Cortes: its hard. just make your outfits work. be sure of them. then you are more then halfway. set poses. set walk. so the only thing you have to worry about it walk straight :)the choreo
Serafina Ezvalt: The choreography and hitting those marks
13 Cortes: you will be ready
13 Cortes: yes
Serafina Ezvalt: That is my huge, huge nightmare
13 Cortes: thats should be the only thing in your mind, and if you stop on the wrong place or just not right STOP there dont move anymore.
13 Cortes: and go on on the next cue. most people wont even recognize
Serafina Ezvalt: *breathes in and out* I am already getting sweaty palms heh
13 Cortes: hihih
13 Cortes: i know :)
13 Cortes: i still have that
Serafina Ezvalt: You do?
13 Cortes: and i am doing this from august 2009
13 Cortes: mmmhmmm i do
Serafina Ezvalt: Wow.
13 Cortes: heart in my throat, sweaty hands. i even have a piece of cloth next to me to wipe hands :)
Serafina Ezvalt: Ahhahah
Serafina Ezvalt: Good advice!
13 Cortes: yeah sweaty slippery hands are not good :)) that is the excitement of modeling Sera. when that dissapears you could be not as sharp as before, and the chance is there that others are. when we stop learning is standing still
Serafina Ezvalt: Oh I am sure, veterans and up and comers alike
13 Cortes: nervousness keeps us sharp and on to it
13 Cortes: yeah
Serafina Ezvalt: Like before an entrance in a play
13 Cortes: i have seen so many models who forget somethings or even worse dont mind. that cannot be. offcourse i know we all try BUT. if you are a TOP model or SUPER model, it cannot be that your lashes are placed crappy, or hair part in your head, or not well resized:)
13 Cortes: i bet i have that also at times. BUT we have to try to minimize that
Serafina Ezvalt: If you are not sure about the resizing could you ask someone?
13 Cortes: yes DO
13 Cortes: you will know soon enough who are able or wanting the best for you and not thinking, "pff i hope she trips so i look the best." or look crappy. normaly we all look at each other if we are rezzed and things, and tell when things are wrong

Tips For Beginners

13 Cortes: yes the academy is a good step towards your goal. if you perform well, and you will, they could ask you for a interview when you end the academy
Serafina Ezvalt: I am doing my very best.
13 Cortes: i know and it will be noticed :)
13 Cortes: people just dont know what modeling is about until they do it themselves. awww pfff walk back and forth on a runway phwaaa i can do that.
Serafina Ezvalt: The choreography is so intense and I stumble quite a bit. The first day of training...oh my lord I should have worn a dunce cap >.<
13 Cortes: yeah yeah LOL
13 Cortes: *smiles* we all struggle in the beginning sera. believe me.
Serafina Ezvalt: I am getting much better though :)
13 Cortes: if you see my styling at the grad show whahahah i didn't look great. BUT for many its the first show, and we evolve. A
s long as krypt sees you evolve your good.
Serafina Ezvalt: And having your inventory organized....*sighs* Still working on it.
13 Cortes: yes important
Serafina Ezvalt: Have to have it done asap. Like uber asap.
13 Cortes: i have to redo it also for a part
Serafina Ezvalt: Oh?
13 Cortes: many things are in it again; more colors, more styles, more designers. i use categories:
skins, and in there sub categories. designers [...]

Serafina Ezvalt: In one paragraph what would you give, advice wise, to new models?
13 Cortes: work hard,work to your goal,use critics and learn. That the most important one, like i said IT is noticed. You have more change to make it when they say,
"well Sera isn't the best in styling BUT how hard she works and do her thing." is great. or
13 Cortes: exsample right hihihih
Serafina Ezvalt: hehhe
"She looks great, but her lack of interest and work, and her interaction with colleagues isn't good."
Serafina Ezvalt: Sera sucks at hitting her marks but damnn she got it going on....oi
Serafina Ezvalt: Ahhh yes I see
13 Cortes: that wont make you go to the top
13 Cortes: thats right :))
13 Cortes: yeeeeeeeeeeeees
13 Cortes: wrong orders :)
Serafina Ezvalt: lol
13 Cortes: wow chat lag
Serafina Ezvalt: yes
13 Cortes: you hit it with what you said :)
Serafina Ezvalt: My problem is I want to be great at it all:(
13 Cortes: you will
13 Cortes: we.they ,ourselves just cannot expect the bst from models who just began to do their thing;
13 Cortes: one goes faster then the other
13 Cortes: shift attention
13 Cortes: say, styling: you do well 40% lets say choreo: 60%
13 Cortes: shift as much as you think is needed, but work to the first thing thats comes to you
Serafina Ezvalt: *nods* I think that is a good ratio actually for now...
13 Cortes: lets say a show. make it work ,styling and pose picking. do the things first in which you are good at, and then do the things that are less good, and feel good about it.then it is easier. this is about graduation, perfection or near perfection is for later. time enough :)or like now the contest you will do. thats important.
Serafina Ezvalt: I can maybe do some choreo...feel good about myself and then work on my inventory while on that high?

13 Cortes: good idea

Serafina Ezvalt: Lashes are very difficult on these eyes for me for some reason.
13 Cortes: as long if we use lashes with many prims, so we can edit every hair. and for that use a skin with bare eyes or no black eyeliner, well not too much.
Serafina Ezvalt: Oh! Oh my gosh....I am so embarrassed. I didnt even think of editing everyhair
13 Cortes: don't be its okay :)))
13 Cortes: you can make it perfect CCD,Je Suis,Miamai have those, and more of course ;)
Serafina Ezvalt: *nods*
13 Cortes: i have many 1 prim lashes, but its almost impossible to get them right.

Serafina Ezvalt: Take a picture with me in front of the decal wall?
13 Cortes: sure
Serafina Ezvalt: let me look for that one riri pose ball i have
13 Cortes: lemme get a good pose :) oh even better :)
Serafina Ezvalt: it is one where you can be on my back lol
13 Cortes: nice phrase :)
Serafina Ezvalt: Yes my friend Kate makes them. She is opening a store Icing On The Kake. hmm i should be on your back lol since i am the one riding on your knowledge
Serafina Ezvalt: hehehe
13 Cortes: we look cool :)) giggles
