On Owning Umbrellas — Featuring Petit Chat from .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week and Face Paint

In Events, Fashion by caryn Ashe

I have umbrellas! The most amusing thing to me is the fact that in my world off line, I don’t own an umbrella. I’ve had one a few times along the way for my sons who had to have them for bus stops, and then they would get eaten in the big black hole that must exist in every student’s locker, but me… I don’t use them. I don’t know why, maybe a childhood fear. I used to arrive at school soaked, and teachers wouldn’t quite know what to do with me. I walked to school from 6th grade through … Read more at the source.

Just Sayin` There’s a Lot Happening This Weekend With .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week

In Events, Fashion by caryn Ashe

I’m a bit biased much of the time because I’ve had the tremendous joy to get to know many different designers in many different veins of thought and style and aesthetic. I have to say, many of my very most favorite designers are the ones who stole a little piece of my heart, above and beyond the professional business world, and for those, I’m ever grateful.

This is the schedule for this weekend with .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week

Sept 19th  |  Friday
12PM    Paisley Daisy | Romance Couture | Snowpaws
1PM      ZOZ
2PM      Nya’s Shop | Morphine | Bravura Homme |

Living In a Fantasy World — Featuring Zanze at Designer Showcase — Sneak Peek at NEW October’s 4 Seasons Face — and M&M

In Events, Fashion by caryn Ashe

When I saw this slinky little gown/dress from Zanze, metallic silvers and aquatic blues, I immediately thought about my fantasy costume folder. I’ve paid ‘good money’ over the years for different pieces of fantasy that came in and out of style in Second Life.

I even have a very pink panther skin, emphasis on the word pink. These wings twinkle with particles. I know, so passe, no one does twinkles anymore, but I love my wings and I will probably have them in my inventory til kingdom come. Today was a good day to dust them off and play.

Zanze’s … Read more at the source.

Cooling Off — Featuring >Asset<, Featuring Nya’s Shop at The Instruments AND Nya’s Shop at .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week, and .:JUMO:. at .PENUMBRA.

In Events, Fashion by caryn Ashe

Nya’s Shop had items out for both The Instruments and .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week so I used a combination of items from both to create my new look this morning. The dress, “Fooling Fall” in yellow comes from The Instruments while the boots and tights are from .PENUMBRA.

A set of jewelry from .:JUMO:. also from .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week makes any look a little more glittery. A word I think I just made up, but it fits. It is more glittery!

>Asset< has a new style released also, called Journey. There’s something very “ME” about a loose ponytail, and autumn. I … Read more at the source.

To Sparkling — Featuring Sabra Style, Chop Zuey and Two Designers From .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week: Luna Body Art and Vanity House of Designs

In Events, Fashion by caryn Ashe

From two designers who both have items out for .PENUMBRA. Fashion week, new nail appliers from Luna Body Art and a new purse and heels from Vanity House of Designs, I began to puzzle together this casual compilation. There are likely thousands of different styles for nail application out there now. Instead of tons of duplication, which I see happens often in the ‘real’ world, each new set I try has a different appeal like this new set from Luna.

I have shared a few items from Sabra Style with you previously and today, I have a casual top and … Read more at the source.

When You Really Like the People Behind the Designs – Featuring Lyrical B!zarre Templaces at Fashion Collective and Loovus Dzevavor at .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week

In Events, Fashion by caryn Ashe

My other look took on a completely different style. The frock has been cut by the completely, unbelievably, overwhelmingly… (okay yes, a few adjectives but I love this girl) amazing Lyrical B!zarre Templates designer in such a way that it’s both avant garde and casual. I think that’s a great feat in design.

The whole outfit, called Under, consists of a bra-like layer, a high waist skirt that then has cutouts just above mid thigh and down to the knee, a unique cape that hooks around the back instead of over the shoulders and then to complete the look, she … Read more at the source.

Never Give Up — Featuring -{ZOZ}- from .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week and WAYNE

In Events, Fashion by caryn Ashe

I have two new looks to share this morn… ermm afternoon. Where did time go? The first comes from a little work done for October’s 4 Seasons campaign. The mini dress with a sleek line and deep cleavage teases wickedly yet retains that balance of decency, making it something I could wear to a party as well as in my personal space with a loved one. WAYNE is the dress designer.

Amazing Marigold, and the newest ‘face’ Laila debuts beautifully during .PENUMBRA. Penumbra Fashion & Events and will be a part of one of the fashion shows coming this weekend. … Read more at the source.

A New Bright Day – Featuring CASTIEL from The Instruments and New From Chop Zuey

In Events, Fashion by caryn Ashe

It’s another bright and early good morning. My day begins with the little cardinal on my front porch singing to his mate, or mates? I don’t know enough about the birds and the bees, obviously! But the sun’s just breaking over the horizon and everything here is pink and grey. It’s that time of day where hope is greatest and anticipation highest as I look forward to what the day has in store. Amidst all the big events in progress, I also want to make sure to share the monthly events like The Instruments.

Each month, a new theme reaches … Read more at the source.

On the Serengeti – Featuring Silk Dreams from Rock Your Rack; Featuring *GLITTER* from .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week; Featuring Chop Zuey and Face Paint

In Events, Fashion by caryn Ashe

As the Rock Your Rack event comes to a close, I have one more piece to show. There are new things on the horizon, always will be, but it’s hard to say goodbye to some of the events that mean so much. I admire the ladies and gentlemen that put this program together and I think they’ve done a tremendous job reaching high goals and will celebrate success at the closing party. The mini-dress over regular clothes seemed to be a big thing in fashion shows on real world runways. I tried it here, with the Silk Dreams item at … Read more at the source.

Simplicity Sweet – Featuring Kastle Rock Couture at Designer Showcase and Image Essentials Poses and Props at The Thrift Shop

In Events, Fashion by caryn Ashe

All you need are clean lines and well constructed pieces to make something elegant. This full length gown from Kastle Rock Couture kept it simple and in the simplicity it speaks with a royal voice, a powerful grace, and distinguished even as it shows skin in a provocative manner.

Paired with one of Chop Zuey’s newest releases, Chromatica and new hair from Truth Hair Grande 2 (add bangs). All of this painted on the beautiful canvas that is October Studios – October’s 4 Seasons Skins and Shapes – the delicate Alabaster tone.

Where do you find such a treasure? This … Read more at the source.
