It’s Chinese New Year today. In Korea, Chinese New Year is a huge deal. Most people return to their home towns and celebrate Chinese New Year with their families. It’s almost like Christmas, but instead of Christmas dinner, we have New Years brunch. Our family is no exception and we all gathered at my uncle’s for a huge breakfast, but tonight I am meeting my friends for dinner to have our own little celebration.
Usually we don’t dress up when we meet up but today is special. We are wearing our best gear and meeting up at our friend’s restaurant for dinner. I chose a tight fitting pencil skirt which inspired today’s look. I know some people hate system skirts. I happen to like them despite the added extra pounds on the back. Anyways, the dress I am wearing to create the look in SL® is Freydis from Ivalde. The balloon shape of the sleeves adds an interesting twist to otherwise a simple dress. The colorful wide sash belt from eLDee cinched at the waist emphasizes my curves. I chose black and silver accesories, a silver brooch from UnTone and black diamond drop earrings from Chloë. Chloë’s mainshop will be opening up on Jan 31. Mark your calendars, because Chloë carries some fabulous jewelry essential for any fashionista. Black lacy gloves, simple black pumps, and of course a black clutch for the evening complete today’s look.
For hair and make up, I wanted to keep it extra-stylish. This hair is one of my favorite hairstyles in my inventory. It’s called Crooked Coif from COIF. It’s very low prim so it’s quite appropriate for the runway or for any highly laggy environment. The skin is one of Minnu Palen’s earlier work. I believe it’s not available now, but any neutral tone make up would do. I chose this particular one, because of the turquoise green eye shadows and interesting lips.
