A Little Bit of Style by Zoe Demar - Sunshine


Giving out some sunshine on this May Day!  Lots of newness at the Fameshed this month including the latest dress from Zaara and Hair by Exile.  Also a sneakpeak of Belleza's Best Buy for the first week of May!

The Chaitra Chiffon dress comes in an array of colors and prints too!  I love the little frills in the sleeves with a bit of soft transparency.  It is a must have for my inventory!  I went with yellow to celebrate the arrival of spring and upcoming summer sunny days.  Keep the mesh coming, Zaara!!

Exile has been busy!  I had started to wonder when he was going to release and now I know why!  The spectacular HUD is going to make my inventory cry out for joy as it is already over-bulging with the amount of items I have collected over my past several years in SL.  THANK YOU EXILE!!  I also adore this Set Fire to the Rain hairstyle.  Give me the body baby!

Skin is always a hot commodity and I got first dips on showing of Belleza's Best Buy that will be released soon!!!  It is Mya in Medium BBB2.  It is the most delicate of the three options that Belleza will be offering.  Mya certainly gives my avatar a unique look compared to a lot of skins out there and I'm always happy to show it off.

And my outfit wouldn't be complete without some sexy wedges by GOS.  I adore the detail of the texture on the toe portion of the Lolita Espardrilles wedges and the sexy ribbon that will leave a lasting impression from behind.  Keep it coming Mr. Gospel - don't let the shoe whores of the universe wait for too long for your next piece of perfection.

The rest is my standards to Del May Poses, Insufferable Dastard Eyes, and Silhouette Lashes

Love, Zoe

Spring Fantasy aka Belle Gone Wild


I've been waiting for League to release this corset/skirt combo into her store since I missed the fair and my wish came true!  I decided that this outfit made me think of Disney's Beauty and the favorite Disney flick from my childhood.  I consider this picture, "Belle Gone Wild!"

It was hard to choose which color combination to choose - there are sooo many options!!  And then there is a HUD included with the corset which allows for 4 spike metal options or to turn them off.  AND it even allows for different texture line options and colors as well as two sleeve options.  Way to go, League - always providing exceptional ..everything!

I'm not really one for doing the cleavage enhancement but corsets definitely don't bring modesty so I felt it was appropriate!  I'm wearing Pink Fuel's Alex with the Enhancer 3 in Latte.  I'm going for the natural look to fit the scene a bit.

I went for looooong hair by LeLutka.  I have a hard time in RL or SL to do the split down the middle.  I don't know why!  But again, I decided to pull it out for this look and love how it turned out!

I'll let the rest of the look speak for itself as I repeatedly use the remaining items.

Dear Spring 2013

Light As Air

Dear Spring,

I put on this stunning new Zaara dress and expect you to show up!  Especially when I'm wearing some smokin' hot Gos heels to match!  This hair by Eaters Coma just has enough curl to handle any rain you want to try and throw at it too!  And if that wasn't enough, my Belleza Best Buy April skin is totally going to knock your snow off!!  So hurry up and arrive already!

Impatiently Waiting in this new pose...from the pose fair, 
Zoe Demar

A Little Bit of Style by Zoe Demar - Indifference


I feel like this look kind of represents the RL me a bit.  I don't really feel about explaining it though so I guess you can say I'm a bit indifferent about it!

Skin Fair 2013: Pink Fuel


The Skin Fair is on - Skin Fair Details Here!

I'm showing off Pink Fuel's Alyx in Latte Purse + Lip Lustre Orange Bonbon with DeLa hair and a top from Celoe.  Like most skin designers they are perfectionists!  Mochi is not an exception to this!  I couldn't decide on which skin tone to buy!  And I absolutely love her lip options that come with the skin.

Happy Post-International Women's Day + Tribute


International Women's Day was celebrated last Friday (March 8th) so I thought that I would take the time to celebrate three women that I look up to in this look - Tuli, Ely, and Del May.

Tuli of Tuli - for learning photoshop all on her own years ago and is happily back in Second Life creating once again!  As shown with her latest skin release, Elyse. Tuli has been one of my staple skin designers that I love to go back to time and time again.  Her Hope skin still is one of my all time faves to this day and one that I got a ton of compliments wearing.

Ely of Elymode - a good friend that I won't ever forget to go to for advice when I need it not only in photoshop but in life.  She has overcome a LOT in her real life - shown with the major roadtrip she took to overcome her own fears.  She also continues to push her skills in 3D modeling.  Warranted in her latest mesh dress release called Starlight.  I've always admired her for her persistence in learning and being a perfectionist when it comes to textures.  Her talent is limitless!  I'm also jealous of her RL photography skills with sunsets...and SL ones too!

Del May of Del May - continues to push the bounds of what angles can be - not only in her SL photography but in her unconventional poses.  I don't know her personally...but tend to think you can get to know her in her pictures that awe me in her artistic style.  Unique is the best word that I can use for this artist!

Let's not leave out the boys since it is now almost St. Patty's Day!

Truth of Truth - who knew that you would have such a SL impact years ago when you first opened your shop.  I still remember the controversy because you were just too good to be believed!  It is amazing to see how much you've developed and striven for innovation in your creations.  I am still holding onto my unused Novocaine gift cards...don't ask me why!  I know you said you'd honor them but I guess I'm still a bit of a sentimental.  I can't believe how one can be so determined to release multiple hair styles on a weekly basis!  Thank you for making my SLHair Folder explode!

Hart of PXL - when I did photography for you - for what doesn't seem as long ago as it is...I learned that you are a perfectionist and somebody that concentrates on even the most tiny detail!  You've continued to triumph over controversy and pushed through not only with skins but your other innovations.  I love these teeth!  Minor to some but it is something that I know you spent quality time on.

And I hate to leave anyone out...

Aula of Insufferable Dastard - I can't say I know anything about you other than yes I love your eyes.  They have the right balance of reflections, size, and color that I require to make my photos pop.  Thank you for having so many options and I wish you success with your expansion into skins!

Cari of Silhouette (no longer open) - you still run the feed that I visit the most often and had one of the best shape shops out there.  I'm happy that I got these lashes because they're my standard go-to SL enhancements.  It sucked when you closed up shop but I'm glad that you did what you needed to do.  Your styling skills are impeccable and you were one of the models that I always admired from afar.

Love, Zoe Demar

Sparkling Spring


Being sick and then having a significant other sick makes for not a lot of time to enjoy free time.  Now that we're feeling better I thought I would aim for some spring even though outside it is a winter wonderland.  Maybe if we think will come!  

The Truth hair (super cute/vintage look - makes me think Audrey), Valentina E. Couture dress (I don't know what could scream SPRING more), and Cae necklace (scripted for multiple color options) are all available at the fameshed event going on now.  

The new Zoe skin is by Tuli is a welcome treat as it is nice to see an old favorite come back from the world of real and back into virtual space creation!!  I'm wearing the petal tone in the sultry make-up collection. Super excited I did decide to twist it up a bit with some blush and freckles from Vive Nine

The rest is old hat favorites...eyes (Insufferable Dastard) and lashes (no longer available) along with a pose from my standard poser Del May.

Mind you I did add shadows/highlights to this picture so make sure you try before you buy!!


Love, Zoe

Celebrating 7 Years in Second Life


Hard to believe that I have been involved in SL for seven years!  Looking through my SL inventory picstures and then through a bit of flickr to collect these images is pretty crazy!!  Thinking about all the countless memories that I have had not only virtually, but outside of Second Life too!  I have certainly changed a lot as well as SL...and I've been recording it all through pictures.  It is the one thing I have consistently loved to do.  

Here is to another 7 years!!

Love, Zoe Demar

A Little Bit of Style by Zoe Demar - Patience


Yes, I'm a Belleza fan.  I think you have to be crazy not to be...but I won't judge you if you are like me and like to change skins like you change clothing...or hair..or...

They are starting up a new event called, "Belleza Best Buys," where they will release exclusive skin(s) for only L$400 every first weekend of the month.  It will only last for 3 days - so you will have to be timely if you want part of this deal.

This weekend (Feb 1st-3rd) they have 3 women's make-up variations offered in 4 ladies' skin-tones   I'm showing off the Ava in Tan, makeup choice 2.  Men - you're not left out either - they have 2 men's skins up for sale too in 3 skin-tones!

I'll let the text in the picture speak for the rest of the items I'm wearing.  If you have questions, feel free to contact me in-world or via my flickr mail.

I will mention that this is my toned down version of the picture.  If you're old enough and have a flickr account you can check out my full pictures on my flickr account.  I'm showing off the Lush mesh breasts with Belleza's Lush Applier.  I have now tried out the Tangos and the Lush mesh breasts.  I won't discount the Tangos for quality, but I personally prefer the Lush brand because it is less abrasive and easier to have a smaller boob, which I prefer for my own avatar.

Happy Shopping!

Love, Zoe

Get your Pink on

I really don't think that I need to say anything about this...right? Correct me, if I'm wrong.

A Little Bit of Style by Zoe Demar - Dazzle


Maybe a bit too bright of a background but I love the contrast to the pink and purple.  Not going to say much but definitely inspired by Zaara's new mesh Atiriya jewelry.  She dropped it on me today and all I can say is YUMMY - it comes in 6 stunning color sets (amythest - shown here, carnelian, lapis lazuli, aquamarine, onyx, and turquoise).  Note: This has not yet been released to the public - so keep an eye out on Zaara's blog.

 I totally missed a ton of Maitreya's release but saw this new dress that was just put out called Frenzy.  It was hard to pick just one color!!  Note: I have added some shading to my picture so make sure to try out the demo first!!

The only other really new thing to blog about is the hair I'm wearing by Iruco.  I saw it on another fashion blog a few days/weeks ago and went to try it out.  It is meant for men, but I love messy fro styles like this and had to have it.

I am also wearing the SLink Mesh Hands a must have item in SL, especially if you model or do photography in SL.  I got the fatpack.  I initially forgot to put in the creds on the picture because wearing them seems so natural to me!  As with most sculpted/mesh feet, ears, hands...I do have a bit of a challenge matching the skin takes practice but I didn't post-edit this at all and feel like it matches pretty darn well!

Otherwise I'm wearing a Belleza skin in mocha again - but a different make-up...and the same Insufferable Dastard eyes that I wore in my previous post.

Time for bed!

Love, Zoe

A Little Bit of Style by Zoe Demar - Contour


It is hard to believe that this is my first official post of the new year!!  I guess I've been busy!  Which is true, but I really thought I would have blogged before now.  But enough about that!  First, a warning.  I have added a bit of detail post-editing - when it comes to shadows to this dress that don't naturally occur.  Please try out a demo before purchasing - I don't want to hear any complaints to me or to Micha!  

If you haven't already heard, the Truth District is hosting a sale on their sim (click here for details).   MichaMi's store has a great deal of 50% off!!  I picked up items that I have been eyeing for a bit - including this Lana Brocade Cocktail dress!  It is sooo nice to see mesh creativity with the contours of this stunning cocktail dress.  The structure is very unique to SL and I'm happy to be showing it off for 2013.  Note that this is not the only color/texture option available.  Check out the store for more options.

Another store in Truth District on sale (click here for details) is a jewelry shop called, Cae.  I'll admit that this was my first visit to the store and it is much easier to drop off some linden to try out something new when it is on sale.  I'm very pleased to give Cae's Flourish Necklace a gander, especially with this elegant look.

As far as skin is concerned, as you've most likely heard - Belleza has come out with their latest skin called, Ava.  I'm showing off the Ava Mocha skin with a lip make-up option in Matte.  I'm looking forward to trying out their other skin tones soon - probably in my next blog post!  A bit of insider info...shhhh...for those of you with tangos, be on the lookout for Belleza skin appliers soon!!

Magika released a new hair today called Habit.  I had first checked out the SL Marketplace store, saw this hair, and snatched it up before it was announced!  I'm never that on the ball!  It is a sequel to one of her previous hairs called, stumble, that had a blindfold.  You can't see it in the picture but it has a long loose twist that goes down the middle of the back.  Check out the demo for more detail.  The best thing about Magika, is that for being such great quality the price isn't extreme and she gives you all normal shades in 1 pack.

Eyes - I picked up another pair from Insufferable Dastard's City Lights Eye Collection to match the green in the dress.  Still my favorite, so if you get tired of me mentioning them, too bad!  I'm also wearing my old standard of lashes that are no longer on the grid.

The stellar pose is by my current standard for pose making, Del May.  She has released some new singles as well as a new couple's pose if you haven't checked it out recently.


That's it for now - Hope 2013 is treating you well!


Love, Zoe
