Francesca

Francesca03

I have never reviewed shapes before, mainly because I am quite happy with my own shape which I have worked on perfecting to my liking over the years.  However, Francesca Topaz of Swami reached out to me and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing this shape, “Francesca”.   How could I refuse coming from a fellow Francesca?  🙂  Swami is a brand new store on marketplace.  “Francesca” is the first shape for sale in this store.  There are two versions included: one short and one tall.  I am wearing the tall shape with my Maitreya body in my pictures today.  Check out the curves on this body… so sexy!

Overall, “Francesca” is more petite and curvier than my own shape.  The proportions are much more realistic.  However, note this shape is no modify/no transfer, so it’s best to try a demo first.  Hopefully by the time this blog post gets published, there will be demos available.  When I received the review copies, it was still a working progress.  The face is cute too.  It’s nice to take a break from my usual look for a change.  It’s so weird to be staring at myself in different skin and shape… refreshing in some ways.  Perhaps I should review more shapes going forward!

Black Lace

blacklace01

I have recently joined Snowpaws as a blogger and I can’t express how excited I am about the opportunity.  Snowpaws designs are so elegant and sophisticated.  For my first post as Snowpaws blogger, I chose this black lace dress called “Charlotte”.  If you have been following my blog, you probably know I have an obsession with lace.  Call it a fettish, but there is something so appealing about the delicate fabric.  Charlotte is absolutely stunning.  It’s so elegant, yet so sensual.  Check out the back of the skirt below!  Love, love, love!  I kept my styling very simple today.  I am actually wearing the jewelry from my previous day’s post.  I am not being lazy, but clean, simple and modern jewelry makes this look more current.  I added a lace hat, an old group gift from Bliss Couture, a red bow clutch from BOOM for a bit of color pop, and patent open toe pumps from Just Designs to complete the look.  Hope you like my lady like styling today.

My Model Casting Call Outfit

Model Casting Call Outfit

I have been working on rebuilding my wardrobe, especially around my mesh body.  Because I like to mix and match, I started off with some very basic must haves.  This is my updated model casting call outfit.  Some modeling agencies and designers have specific requirements which one should follow, but if there is no preference I like to show up in a simple outfit and light make-up with my hair pulled back. I think models should be like a blank canvas for designers to show off their creations, and overly styled looks or heavy make up can be a distraction to their vision.  My outfit is very simple, basic white tank top, dark fitted jeans, and a pair of basic heels.
