Chop Zuey The Dark Dweller of Braj

Today I watched some blogger YouTubes and realized I needed to get my blog organized! So I have spent the day trying to develop a spreadsheet of the items I have blogged and critical details about the blog pics.  I realized when I looked at the list that I had not blogged this fantastic set by Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey, “The Dark Dweller of Braj”. Check out this pic and I think you will want to stop over and add it to your jewelry box soon!!  CHOP ZUEY COUTURE JEWELLERY http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Chop%20Zuey/120/182/26

Ready for Winter?

While I am avoiding styling my final MVW outfit for this Saturday’s walk I wanted to share this great outfit I found this week. I looked for days for some new winter fashions and finally found the store {amiable}. They had several nice winter separates and so I bought a sweater and skirt ensemble that will be great for those almost winter days we are feeling in RL. Here is the link to the store:

MISS SL Paper Couture Challenge

Between RL trips and bad internet connections Brianna’s time online has been very limited this month.  She tried desperately to walk in the Paper Couture Challenge last Saturday but she couldn’t get enough bandwidth to manage to walk  in a straight line.  Now that I am home thought I would share the styling as I did have fun designing it.  The Challenge was used for the Press Presentation  and required us to select a woman in a painting and use that painting as an inspiration while recounting information regarding our RL mission.  This is what Bri planned to share :

Styling Description:

MISS SL Aruba 2016 Brianna Beresford has selected “Maid of Farmland” by Susan Cohen Thompson http://www.art-connects-nature.com/skagit-valley-puget-sound as her painting depicting a woman as the main subject. The painting represents an abstract woman that is related to farmland (farmland preservation is Bri’s passion). She chose to emphasize the purple, red, and green shades from the painting as her outfit colors.
Bri’s gown uses a recycled corrugated cardboard repurposed from a Kraft dress to form 7 layers of ruffles to create a lovely gown that can be worn to the Land Trust Ball. The bodice is the Alyce ruffled top from Marketplace. Brianna chose Vanity Fair hair and her jewelry is fresh from Eclectica “Spring Leaves” head, collar and ring. Her outfit is finished by shoes from [Gos].

Farmland Preservation Mission
Brianna has spent the last 25 years supporting the Land Trust movement to preserve agriculture land for the next generations. The essential tool is the conservation easement where land owners place an easement in perpetuity on their farmland to prevent development. The land trust movement is relatively new but has become essential for communities to control urban sprawl. Land can be preserved for many reasons including conservation, natural amenities, agriculture, historical etc. Bri has worked mainly in the development of the agriculture land preservation movement in her home state helping establish several land trusts and educational programs to encourage the support of agriculture land preservation.
The preservation of agriculture land is critical to the well-being of our society. One phrase says it all ” NO FARMS – NO FOOD”. This is an international concern as well as our urban communities spread into the countryside and deplete our ability to feed our people.

Elsa Schaparelli – Retro Couture

This Miss Royalty challenge was to style an Elsa Schiaparelli Retro Couture look. This gown from 1939 is one of her most famous and features a lobster design created in collaboration with Salvador Dali. It was included by Wallace Simpson in her trousseau and was featured in photos of her by Cecil Beaton. It is currently on display at the Philadelphia Museum of Modern Art. Brianna discovered a gown based on the design by Cartunno Couture on marketplace and used the Cecil Beaton photos as inspiration for these styling pictures.

This gown is so sheer and airy that immediately Brianna had to wear it to practice at her ballet barre. You can see how smoothly it moves as she bends during her workout.  The back lacing and bodice ruffles make this gown a classic design. The gown comes in various colors and is available at the store right now at:
