*Review* Indyra Originals: La Capitaine

By Luna Jubilee  //  Clothing  //  No Comments

Indyra Originals is another of my long time fav designers.  I’ve been following Indyra Seigo since … well … since I started doing this whole fashion blogging thing over two years ago. She’s gone from a medium sized store to her own sim that exemplifies her style.  When you visit Indyra Originals, you will see all her gowns, costumes, lingerie, clothing and shoes. She has a laundry list of creations.

One of the newest releases is call La Capitaine.  How adorable is this dress?!  I’ve been having a great time wearing it to several different events … and even on a few personal flickr pics.

La Capitaine comes in several colors all with the gloves (two cuff options), the jacket and dress.  The skirt dress has to be the highlight to the entire piece … that is after I got past the mini jacket. We all know how much I love the mini jackets! Ok, back to the skirt, its a well-designed with the many layers under the main skirt.  Even the texture is hard not to like, its full of its own detailing to make it look that much more flouncy.

Check out the shoes. I’ve been wearing these since they came out almost a year ago.  I’ve received so many compliments!  Again, these come in various colors.

Head on over to Indyra Originals

*Review* *Kookie* Shoes & Clothing

Kookie Lemon of *Kookie*, most notably known for her adorable shoes and boots has recently branched out into making clothing.  I’ve always enjoyed seeing when designers go beyond what they are known for to try new things.  Kookie has done just that, she’s started off creating simple tanks.  The best part: they are made on all the shirt pant layers!!

If trying her hand at clothing wasn’t enough, she kept up with her regular gig and released two new shoes. The shoes are inline with the new fade: Prim Feet.  The Chic Heels (shown in Creamy Latte) can be worn with or without the laceup option.  Also, there even is a bow for the shoe.  I choose the bowless version.

The next shoe release is called Vogue.  This pair unlike the Chic Heel has the full prim foot.  What made me do a double take on this pair was the “missing” heel.  Altho not really missing, the heeless shoe is the real design.  Kinda like having something that makes people turn their heads for the second look.

Before I wrap up the review chatter, the shoe HUD used to color the toes and tint the skin is unique.  The wearable HUD is so simple and, never thought I would say this about a HUD, but its beautiful with its nice art work. The skin tinting is cake; just rez the skin tone ball and a few simple clicks later, the skin tone matches.  It was so easy, I couldn’t beleive it and kept reading the included “how to” notecard.

I’m really liking all these new releases.  Kookie has out done herself! Keep up the great work, I’m looking forward to more new things!! Check out *Kookie*.

*Review* Primitive Design

Primitive Design has been one of those “off the radar” design houses that I just love and think they just don’t get enough exposure.  Geyer Schnyder, owner of Primitive Design, brings to the SL fashion market a wide range of urban grunge that is and isn’t in extreme.  Its well done, subtle and packs a punch.  The designs that are shown here by Express and myself is only a small sampling for what you can find in his store.

What I really like about Primitive Design is the rich textures.  The detailing is just amazing; simple and well done.  The colors Geyer uses are even expressive.

There is even a small, and growing, section of graphic tees (my new guilty pleasure with those pants I show here). I like that I can find tons of basics … and several unique pieces that all blend together or look awesome mixed with my outfits.  Oh yeah, Primitive Design has a kinda cool section of accessories … I’m hoping for more! ;)

Its rare to find a designer that does men and women clothing so well. Glad to have Primitive Design in my closet!

Check it out for yourself.  Primitive Design

*Review* – BEBAE – Delilah

By Luna Jubilee  //  Skins  //  No Comments

Today BEBAE released a beautiful new skin line called Delilah.  This collection compliments Torie Senne’s talents.  Overal the skin is well blended and flawless.

The makeups, not unlike the other lines, have a soft hue to them.  There is a total of eight makeups to choose from that in include 2 eyebrow color tints (light and dark). What I was very happy to see is the white “halo” missing from the T-zone of the face.  With this element gone, the face has a much more softer apparence.  (The white halo is a pet-peeve of mine as I find it distracting from the makeup.)

I do recommend is joining BEBAE‘s inworld group.  With the launch of this skin, the group received the skin in the four skin tones (Caramel, Cinna, Coco and Creme). I don’t see an enrollment fee for this group either, making it that much more worth joining!!

Here are some the makeups in the Creme tone.

Check out the store to find your tone … and pick up a copy of the skin: BEBAE

Singles: 1000L
Jumbo Pack: 5000L

*Review* Mischief Dresses

I was just talking to a friend of mine saying how I don’t have many mini casual dresses… and then I see Mischief’s new releases.  I couldn’t be any happier.  April Showers and Kaylee fit perfectly into my growing collection.

Kaylee is a retro printed strapless dress created in bold gem tones.  April Showers is a halter topped dress with polka-dots in pastel colors. Both are created using all the layers, except the undershirt layer – perfect for adding jackets or other embellishments. Check out the pics for some of the available colors.
