Yes, I sometimes get asked to blog designs. I don’t consider myself a famous blogger or even well-known and Lord knows I hardly get any likes on my blog or on Flickr compared to some really fantastic bloggers. I’m one of those people who’s just under the radar most of the time but every once in awhile someone surprises me and tells me how much they like my blog and asks if I’d blog something for them. As flattered as I am I’m still pretty picky about what I blog so I’ll usually do a little research first. That’s what I did when Dox Messmer of Du Jour asked if I’d blog some of his new designs for him. I went to his store and I really loved the textures he was using so I told him that I’d love to do blog post. So, here is one offering of Du Jour and I hope you like it too.

Words from MOLiCHiNO Owner/Designer, Aurelia Chauveau
MOLiCHiNO is closing its doors after 4 years in Second Life. This decision has been a tough one, but it feels like the right one.
MOLiCHiNO began at a point in my life where I needed an outlet for my creativity. I have enjoyed every minute of creating fashion for the women of Second Life since then. I have participated in many events, fashion shows, met a whole bunch of incredible people along the way.
Some questions you might ask:
When is the in-world store and marketplace closing? Sunday August 16th at Midnight SLT (Gives you all day Sunday to shop) All MOLiCHiNO products will be removed and wont ever be available again after this date.
Why are you closing MOLiCHiNO? It is a tough question to answer, it is just a feeling that now is the right time to end the journey of MOLiCHiNO.
Am I leaving Second Life? No. I’ll still log in every day!
Am I going to stop creating for Second Life entirely? I don’t think so. I will definitely create if I feel like it.
Am I going to re-open MOLiCHiNO sometime again in the future? No. The brand has special meaning to me and I will always remember it. But it’s time to move on.
Am I going to open a new store? Possibly. Who knows what the future holds.
I want to say thank you to:
MOLiCHiNO Fans: Thanks to all the fans and shoppers that have bought my products over the years, without you, my store might not have lasted this long.
MOLiCHiNO Bloggers: Thanks to all the bloggers who have ever blogged MOLiCHiNO items over the years. Your creativity astounds me! I have loved looking at your styles and pics!
MOLiCHiNO VIP Members: Thanks to all of my MOLiCHiNO VIP Group members, who loved the brand enough to take up a valuable group spot!
Event organisers/SL Magazine owners/Models: Thanks to all the event organisers who have asked me to participate in your amazing events and fashion shows! To the SL Magazine owners who allowed me a platform to advertise my store within your pages, thanks! And thanks to all the models out there who styled outfits with MOLiCHiNO items!
The last person I wanted to say thanks to is my Manager: Linda Reddevil. Linda has been a model in Second Life for such a long time. I admired her work for a long time before we became friends. I noticed her pictures of MOLiCHiNO items and asked her if I could display them in my store. She said yes and her pictures have lined the walls of MOLiCHiNO stores ever since. Her fantastic sense of style always made MOLiCHiNO fashion look better than I could ever imagine! Her support over the years has been amazing and I could not have had this journey without her!
Remember, the in-world store AND the marketplace will be closed, MOLiCHiNO products will no longer be sold after Sunday.
Hugs and kisses to you all!!
Owner and Designer of MOLiCHiNO
I seem to reminisce more in the summer months and maybe it’s because my friends and I spent so much time together during the summer as we were growing up. The rest of the year we went to different local schools so we couldn’t spend as much time together. We’re all still friends to this day and see each other often but life isn’t the same as those carefree summers running back and forth to each other’s houses or going swimming or just sitting outside watching the cars drive by. The days were filled with laughter, fun and music.
As I was taking these shots in-world, I began to think of the Madonna song at the end of the movie ‘A League of Their Own’ and I remember when I first heard it how much it reminded me of when we were kids and how we each yearned to be a grown-up. Once we became grown-ups, how we now long for the more simple days of our youth. (For those of you who’ve never heard the song, the video is at the end of this post. Enjoy!)

I haven’t been blogging in awhile due to a lot of personal things going on in my life. One major undertaking this past month was to move my Dad, who was living in an assisted living facility in South Carolina, back home to an assisted living facility here in New York to be by me. He was all alone down in South Carolina since my brother left there and moved to Ohio for a new job. Despite THE worst plane ride back home we both made it intact, even if we were almost 12 hours late in landing back in New York. My Dad has since settled in and he’s happy at his new home and I’m adjusting to having my Dad nearby again and making time to see him.
I apologize to those who have sent things for me to blog and didn’t see them being blogged on my site. I promise to catch up with what I can and maybe just start fresh. While I’m not a blogger for Lennie by Fuzz Lennie, I happened to be online the other night when I got a notecard asking if I’d be interested in blogging an outfit or two. I remember Fuzz when I started out modeling in SL and someone I had gone to modeling school with, looked up to and admired Fuzz immensely. While I never had the chance to personally get to know Fuzz, she’s been around the SL modeling community a long time and in many capacities and now with her own clothing line – Lennie.
Enough reminiscing and let’s get on with the outfit, right? Be sure to check out the back side of the ‘Tempting Landa Top’ because it’s very sexy and could easily go with a pencil skirt or tailored pants and an updo for a more amped up classical look. Both the shorts and the top come in a variety of colors which you can choose through a HUD and both articles of clothing fit very well.
