Today I am going to show a new item from one of my favorite Second Life designers, she is not my favorite because I am her manager, she is my favorite because I love her like family. I am drawn so completely to creative thinker’s, they inspire me and Mila Tatham of *SoliDea FoliEs* is very inspirational, not only to myself but to many like-minded artists/models. Since I typically do these blogs in pairs, instead of showing something from the newer line, I think I’ve done pictures of most everything, I fell back to a comfortable favorite.

I just love Mila’s “Noir” series and still it is one of my faves. The line always made me feel like some dark Noir 17th century figure, richly textured in black satins and feathers, the dark colors emphasizing the paleness of skin.  I felt somehow I should be walking quietly along a darkened cobblestone street, being chased by the whispering wind. This dark on pale haute couture is a look, I think, that should be at least a small part of every models portfolio. Even if just a picture or two. It takes the service-able model to a greater depth, sort of a separation of the Every-Day-Wear model from the Couture Runway model. So explore this area if you are so inclined, you can make some dramatic works of art with it.

This second *SoliDea FoliEs* outfit is the new “Estro” created for supermodel Ellendir Khandar during her bid for Miss Mundo Virtual. It is a high-impact and gorgeously feminine outfit with its body wrapping flowers, brightly shimmering pearls and feathers! Yes! I said feathers! There is no need to walk into a crowded room and make a lot of noise to be noticed. In this gorgeous offering from *SoliDea FoliEs* in the silence that fills the room as you enter it, all that will be necessary is the sound of the gently fluttering feathers that move sensually about you as you walk.

But hey! If this scrumptious outfit is not to your liking, *SoliDea FoliEs* is one of the participants of The Couturier’s Dock which opens at 9:30AM today! You can pick up Mila’s item and the items of many others designers for half off. But you will have to hurry, the unique items from these designers are limited to a lot of 35! I know you will love the treasures at the Couturier’s Dock, the items I’ve had a sneak peek of, I adore! And not just because LovelyMi named her makeup after me! 😉
