Vintage chic from Sascha’s Designs

It’s been quite a while since I last posted on Opium Insight and I have to say…I missed it greatly. I hope to make post frequently on here once again! Today I’ve got the honor of showing off my new coat from Sascha’s Designs! Since fall is now upon us and we’re looking forward to cooler weather, this jacket definitely fits the season. As many of you know, the Vintage Fair is also going on right now, so I’ve been somewhat stuck in a 70′s kind of mood as of late. This jacket seriously has a funkalicious vintage vibe, but can also be worn in a more toned down, classy manner if you so desire!

 

 

Most people tend to favor warmer colors in the autumn for obvious reasons (I’m a fan of the warmer tones, I admit) & I’m loving the jacket in this tone, however it also comes in white, pink, lavender, black and purple for those who tend to gravitate towards those colors, so there’s something for everyone.

 

 

 

I had such fun putting this style together. Sometimes when you find a certain item that’s screaming to be worn, building a look from that central item (whether it’s an article of clothing, hairstyle, skin or piece of jewelry) can totally put you in a bubbly mood and make you feel accomplished. I know I feel pretty perky and I’m not usually so chipper on a Monday!

Ashley by K-Code

I am so happy when Kara Dresler contacted me personally to give this awesome jacket. It feels like a dream when I received an honor to review one of the latest release from K-Code. This stunning jacket is called Ashley and I am in love with this gorgeous piece. I tell you guys that I have some sort of personal addiction to wear jackets in SL, but Ashley has stole my heart and I don’t think I will be looking for another jacket in a long period of time. There are several reasons why I am in love with this jacket. First, it has resizing script that is really handy to use. Second, it has the texture changing option!! You can change the color of inside part to 4 different colors, such as, yellow, green, beige, and pink. :) Third, It is green!!.. :P .. This green color is kinda rare on SL and I am so happy when I see Ashley on the grid! :) )

Anyways, don’t wait any longer, come grab this stunning jacket from K-Code!

We all love to have a little black dress in our inventory and “Cigar” is definitely is a little black dress that you will love. There’s plenty of lovely ruching going on with a semi transparent insert that shows off a bit of skin. Of course our blushes are spared by a flash of silver placed in just the right places.

Denim To Die For!

Look what I have for you today!!… “Caval” another gorgeous design from Meghindo Romano’s Fall Collection. I absolutely love this. The texture work and detailing are fantastic with eyelets, sequins, over stitching and high heels that just exude that high fashion look.

Low rise denim jeggings have great eyelet detail to the front and back and look fantastic worn here with just the sequined jacket. For a more relaxed looser look there is a slightly flared jeans option (not shown here)

Meghindos - Caval - Pic2

The sequined jacket textures are very realistic and I’ve tried to show this in my front/back jacket shot. Meghindo Romano has certainly got a great eye for detail and it sure does show in this fabulous outfit

Add a spiked stretchy short dress for an alternative look and slip on a jacket to achieve a layered fashion look… Did I say That I love everything about Caval.. Meg has taken the humble pair of jeans to another fashion dimension!!

What better way to finish off any outfit than with a great pair of heels and I’m in no doubt that these are just that…. Caval is definitely on the top shelf of my inventory.. Thank you Meg !!

Spotlight on SL designers: Exclusiva does it again

We at Opium are excited to bring you the Romantique show this week, as well as continuing coverage of our featured designer! I am, of course, talking about Exclusiva, and hopefully you have read today’s Meet’n'Greet interview with VictoriaV and Vasgez McMillan just a few posts down from this one.

Now I have the pleasure to show you another of their stunning creations, the elegant and gorgeous Stacy summer outfit:)

Stacy once again showcases Exclusiva’s talent for combining the highest quality textures and prim work into designs that exude glamour and sophistication. This classic ruffled satin dress in a rich, deep pink features a gorgeous flowing prim skirt, a shoulderless bodice that embraces and highlights your feminine shape, and a unique V-shaped design made from layered bands in the back which ends in a lovely prim tie just above the bosom. This, along with the detailed stretch folds, gives the dress a flirty and alluring touch, and it does so in style!

And as if that was not enough, the outfit also comes with a beautiful hat, adorned with a pink ribbon and flowers on its side, a stylish satin clutch, white gloves, and a fabulous light jacket that is sure to make you the star of every high society cocktail party. Of course, it too is adorned with a beautiful pink rose:)

The jacket and its sleeves are fully modifiable, and two sizes are already included to give you an easy starting point for fitting to your unique shape. In addition, the hat includes a resizer script. No matter how you put Stacy together, you will look amazing in any combination – be sure to visit Exclusiva soon and pick up your copy, and remember to attend the Romantique fashion show this Thursday or Friday for even more stunning creations:)
