Celebrate the End of the Season with Summer Cocktails

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the dog days of summer are winding down. It's a perfect time to indulge in girly cocktails and just unwind and if you could use a little relaxation, boy do we have the release for you. The inspiration for this set came from a color trend report in the UK edition of Harper's Bazaar. Really rich and bright colors are what's hot this summer and the colors made us think of summer cocktails. This is what led us to the center of our collection, our Cocktail Bar. This bar is chock full of goodies and I'm pretty sure that some of these features are unique never done in sl before. My personal favorite item in the set is a weapons grade soda siphon. CJ and I had tons of fun testing that one out.

Of course, you want to drink your summer cocktails in style, that brings us to our two dresses. The Summer Cocktails dress features sculptie sleeves and an obi style sculptie belt and comes in 6 yummy cocktail colors. The other dress, Summer Cocktails Mini, is total modern goddess with it's asymmetric neckline and prim mini skirt. This dress also comes in the same 6 colors as the other dress which means there are some mixing and matching possibilities!

Of course, if you want to look perfectly polished, you need the final touch - new makeup made to coordinate with the Summer Cocktails dresses. I've created 6 new makeups in 3 skin tones based in our Audrey line. The makeups are based on a few different looks suggested by friends, Haver Cole, Aderyn Verwood, and possibly a few others that I forgot! They all have winged liner and I used 3 different lip textures so there's something for everyone.

Group Gift Skin: Audrey English Rose

Through the years, I've discovered a lot of stores and groups that interested me by looking at the groups in people's profiles. This is why we've always refused to start up a subscription based group. That said, we do understand that there are never enough group slots free for all of our needs. This is why we like to give out gifts to our group members to thank them for helping to spread the word about our brand.

The gift skin is a preview of the next Audrey makeup look for 5th & Oxford. It was inspired by this makeup look seen at Sonia Rykiel's fall show and featured in Elle UK. I went a bit lighter on the lip color but I do intend on making a variation with darker lips for the final set.

To claim your gift, just wear your 5th & Oxford group tag to the shop and click on the gift vendor in the center of the store. If you are not already in our group, it will give you a link to click on to join or you can just click on the 5th & Oxford group in my profile and join there. Enjoy!

5th & Oxford

CJ and I have been in the skin business for 3 years. We've released countless makeups under 7 skin lines and yes, we've been through 2 brand names. This, however, is not a rebranding. We are no longer just about skins. Along with our new name, 5th & Oxford will bring a diverse range of products which draw from the most current trends in fashion and design, for both women, men, AND your home. While our focus and style will be shifting, our mission as content creators will remain the same. CJ and I are about slavish attention to the details and perfectionism.

We look forward to expanding into new territory in the coming months. Because we've always been known primarily as skin makers, we thought it only fitting that our first product release under this new brand would be skins. Take a look at just a few of the skins we've released under the Audrey line that are available at
5th & Oxford

Nautical Set

This outfit took me an awful long time to put together. I started it hoping to have it ready for Memorial day weekend. I kept getting sidetracked by the new skin line that CJ and I are working on. I may be late for Memorial Day but I'm early for the Fourth of July! Of course, I think the outfit will work really well for any summer look.

Because all the pieces come in multiple clothing options, the layering possibilities are endless. I hope you all enjoy. The outfit is available in the main entrance of our Fleur location only.

Skin- Fleur, Abby (beta version)
Hair- Truth, Linda, driftwood

Second Date Release

CJ and I are primarily known for our skins, it's the majority of our content and it's what we've been doing for the longest time. While I've contributed to the 'designing'of our clothing and over time, I've been more involved in the execution, we've never released anything that I did all on my own from start to finish. About two months ago, with CJ's help, I began a crash course on clothing making. What you see here is the first thing that I've created that I think is good enough to sell under the Fleur brand. I know there are a few minor flaws with it but I'm still pretty proud of how far I've come in just two months.

I was originally going to name the dress First Date, in reference to it being my first piece of clothing but then I was thinking that neckline was a bit immodest for a first date, so, Second Date was born. As simple as the design is, I put a lot of work into the details, the folds of the skirt, the fabric texture, the highlights, pleating on the belt, wrinkles, etc. -all those little details add up to a lot of work. I hope you all appreciate those little details but most of all, I hope it makes you feel as pretty as I do when wearing it.

Second Date is available in 6 colors and on multiple layers.

Skin- Fleur, Strawberry Deux Parfait 3
Hair- Truth, Angelina, Sand
Eyes- Miriel, Luminous Standard
Necklace- Paper Couture, Enamel Butterfly Necklace
Shoes- Maitreya Slinky Stilettos, Black
Pose- LAP, Barbie 17

Saying Goodbye

A year ago, Samara Barzane joined Fleur. She was full of ideas and enthusiasm and has proven to be both a loyal employee and a good friend. Unfortunately, Sam is cutting back on her working hours in SL and will no longer be with us, effective the first of March. Luckily for us all, this vibrant member of our community will not be gone from SL and I might be able to convince her to help out with the odd special event from time to time. :-) Thank you Sam, for all that you have done, for your hard work and dedication. CJ and I both wish you all the best.

Time is Running Out.... At 11:59pm Today!

**Both the grid-wide Vain Kissed Hunt and the Jolie Fleur "Be Our Valentine" Flickr Contest end today at 11:59pm SLT!**

And the Limited Release Shoujo Valentine skins will disappear at the end of February.

So it's time to get those LR Valentine Shoujo skins, take those pictures and submit them for consideration to the Jolie Fleur Flickr Group.

A reminder -- the skins we are looking for in the Flickr contest are the Limited Release SHOUJO Valentine Red or Pink, not the Vain Hunt Allure Valentine skin. [Although we love pictures of you in ANY Fleur skin :)]

And since the hunt Allure skin isn't eligible for the contest we thought we'd share a few of those group submissions with you in the blog. If you haven't gotten the Fleur Allure Valentine Hunt skins, what are you waiting for?

From left to right: Gabby Panacek, Creamy Cooljoke and Rosie Barthelmess. Do visit the Jolie Fleur Flickr Pool to see them in their full glory!

New China Skin: L'Oiseau

CJ and I have long admired the work of hyasynth Tiramisu and soon after personal introductions, I had the good fortune of learning that she is not only a talented content creator but a wonderful person and a good friend. So when hya told me that she had created a lovely set named Fleur and was wondering if I wouldn't mind creating a complimentary skin, the word 'no' slipped from my vocabulary. She even sent over a psd file of the brocade pattern to use on the skin (you can see the detail I borrowed from Hya in the eyeliner that extends past the corner of the eyes! How do you honor someone who honors you? Well, we've returned the favor (sort of) and named the skins L'Oiseau for the little birdy behind Silent Sparrow. You can find the Fleur set and the rest of the Ms. Tiramisu's creations at silentsparrow the L'Oiseau skins will be there in the next day or so or if you are impatient, you can find them in the park at the flagship Fleur .

A Little P.S.
As some of you may have heard, there has been a devastating bushfire in Australia and Autumn Hykova and Dakota Buck have organized to raise funds for the Australian Red Cross. We've set up a donation kiosk at Fleur and they can be found in other locations throughout SL. Also, some content creators have been creating special items and/or promising to donate income from sales to the fund. Checky out Savvy?, Philotic Energy, and Sable Rose are among those participating in some way or other and the list keeps growing. If interested in getting involved, please contact Autumn Hykova.

Fleur is Smokin'

When we were planning our Allure line, I did a lot of research on makeup looks to gain some inspiration. I poured through pictures from runway shows on the internet, sorted through my inspiration folder filled with pictures of makeups pulled from magazines, and made frequent trips to the bookstore looking for a new book that struck my fancy. One day I came across Eye Candy by Linda Mason. This is where I got my inspiration for our Smokin' makeup. For those curious about the book, it is full of some really fun, funky makeup looks and the models are fresh-faced, 'real' girls.

Get your Allure Smokin' at Fleur. Here's your taxi!
And don't forget Biba and Winter Nights, both offering a variety of unique looks for your SL(tm) evenings :)

Fashion Forward: Fleur Allure Exotique Inspiration

While I don't consider myself a slave to fashion, I do follow it closely. I have a deep respect and admiration for clothing as an art form and because of this, I closely follow the launch of several of my favorite designers each season.

The inspiration for the Exotique makeup was from a runway look for Fall 08. Sadly, I can't remember what designer featured the look. What I love about this makeup is that while it is a little bit "exotic", it is still a very wearable evening/going out look for a young woman. The color palette for the first makeup came from the inspiration picture and the other two looks featured color combinations that I created.

I find that for the most part, runway makeup tends to be a great way to predict the seasons coming trends in makeup and serve as an inspiration for your own looks.

Please drop by Fleur and try the very wearable "fashion-forward" makeups of Exotique, which is NOW on 50% sale for the next week.

Your limo awaits!
