Fann-tastic Look of The Day – A Sweet Delight

Fann-tastic Look of The Day - A Sweet Delight

I am going for something sweet yet casual today. I love everything I’m wearing today and they are something I will definitely love in RL. When I learnt that MG Fashion is going to released this high waist pant/body suit called Jersey Girl, I was full of anticipation and delight. I rushed immediately to purchase the suit when it was released. I love the texture and sweet design. The pants and the high waist parts come in all layers, perfect for mix and matching. I matched with one of my favourite sheer lace top from Pixel Dolls – Anticipation, wearing only the shirt layer. The lace blouse has puffy cuff sleeves which looked so feminine, with the lace trimmings on the sleeves and around the neckline. This yummy knit stole is from SD Boutique and is my absolute favourite stole now.

[ s t y l e ] Business Casual

Business Casual

Today I decided to bring a bit of my RL work wardrobe to SL.  I work for an extremely conservative financial institution, where a navy blue, grey or black suit and pumps are the usual attire for the staff.  I am a bit unorthodox and thankfully management has accepted my unconventional ways of dressing.  When I say unconventional by all means I do not mean outrageous, but I do play around with colors and accessories to make my everyday work wardrobe a bit more fun.

To create today’s look I chose a purple knit cardigan from A-Bomb and a grey bermuda shorts from Pink Outfitters.  My avatar has unrealistically long and lean legs so I am wearing purple stockings from Shiny Things.  Wearing color stockings especially with contrasting shoes and shorts chop up the legs, making you look shorter.  A more appropriate choice for RL would have been stockings in similar tones as the shorts and shoes, black or dark grey, which would give the illusion of longer legs.   

For accessories, I added a black slim belt from Artilleri for a more polished look.  The little scarf from eLDee adds a bit of feminine twist.  Silver earrings and bangle from MiamMiam are understated yet elegant.  The big birkin bag, a recreation of Hermes classic, is a gift from my friend Kazunari Mayo.  It is not available for sale but any bag in similar shape and size could be a stylish way of replacing a briefcase.  For shoes, I opted for slim ankle boots from Style Starts Here!  I bought these a while back but never really had a chance to wear them.   I love the silhouette of these boots.  I wish I had them in RL.

Hair & make-up, I am back to my short hair, this time Edie from Aden.  Make-up I am sticking to Cupcakes Lovespell line, currently on sale, buy 1 get 1 free till Valentine’s Day.  Oh I wish waited a few days before I bought them.

[ s t y l e ] Casual Monday

Casual Monday

Someone asked me today if I ever wear sneakers.  It’s a valid question since I wear heels most of the time.  Sneakers make up a tiny portion of my RL shoe collection.  Actually the only pair of sneakers outside of those I wear to workout at the gym are my Converse.   So today I recreated what I would typically wear with my Converse.  It’s actually quite simple, a good pair of jeans and a cute t-shirt, just like these I picked up from Pink Outfitters.  Pink Outfitters carries some really cute items and it’s currently on sale, everything L$50 each!!!  I think it’s till Feb 14th so make sure to stop by.  I went crazy and bought almost everything in that store.   Thanks Fann for giving me a heads up!

For shoes, I pulled out my hi-tops from Urban Bomb Unit, my favorite sneakers in SL.  Accessories were kept simple, just a simple red bag from ETD to match my shoes, a charm bracelet from Juicy, and a pair of sunglasses from Kalnins Sunglasses.  

I let my hair down, braided loosely on the side.  It’s a new hairstyle I picked up from Fascino, also on sale.  Single packs have been slashed to L$50 each.  So many great bargains… I am going broke.  Anyways, for make-up, I chose Tuesday from Cupcakes’ new line, Lovespells, a natural make-up perfect for today’s casual look.

Note, poses used today for the pictures are from the AO included in the bag.

Fann-tastic Look of The Day – Girlish Casual

Look of The Day - Girlish Casual

The weather from where I am is getting warmer with about 34 degree celsius today. When I saw this latest new release, Valarie, a blouse that is both feminine and sexy from Leezu!, I knew this top fits to my mood and the weather perfectly. Wear only one of the 3 layers available and the blouse becomes semi-transparent and deliciously revealing. I paired it with a capri from Kurotsubaki, which I simply love its cutting and they comes with 2 types of cuff prims for this pants. Flats will be perfect for such a casual afternoon out shopping and this new release from Kookie called Ella Petites, is definitely a must have in the inventory!

I added a belt from Coco and accessorised the overall look with bangles from CG and designs from Chloe, Thick-with-it-set, which comes with a pair of red earrings, black and zebra prints bangles and a zebra print ring. Such sunny weather, a pair of shades is a must and off I go, out for a relaxing afternoon tea followed by some shopping with friends.

Fann-tastic Look of The Day – Urban Chic

Look of The Day - Urban Chic

Finally the long awaited weekend is here! I am in the mood to dress down to do some shopping today and decided to put together this “urban chic” look. After reading from the feed some of the fabulous new releases and drooling over them, I finally managed to do the shopping today as I was not able to have the time to shop for them earlier. I worn the turtleneck Muism sweater together with this Michami LuLu jumpsuit, wearing only the shirt layer and paired it with the white pants from Last Call Candice outfit. Since the overall look rather plain, I was deciding whether to accessorize the outfit with a necklace or wear a scarf. In the end, I opted to wear this stole from Coco instead.

When I saw this new skin release from Cupcakes, called Lovespell, I immediately fell head over heels for this skin and knew that I must have them. I had a hard time deciding which makeup to buy from all the beautiful makeup choice. Likewise for this pair of new Tesla boots called Kensington, they are simply to die for. I love the white color of this pair of boots, which does not turn out to be off-white or creamy and matches well with this white pants and some of my other white bottoms. Full credits below:

[ s t y l e] Vintage Glam

Just A Bit of Glamour

Today’s look started off with my new jewelry set from Chloe, Red Winds Jewels Set in Gold.  Usually, jewelry like other accessories are the final touch to an outfit, but I really wanted to show these off so here we go.  The dress is a mix-match I created from two different outfits.  The feather hair accessory, corset top and underskirt pants are from Phoenix Gown, a special sale item over at Phoenix Rising.  The gown with it’s original skirt is beautiful and a bargain.  I can’t remember how much I paid, but it was definitely no more than L$25.  The prim skirt is part of LeeZu’s Courtisane outfit.  I made an extra copy of the flexi skirt and attached them at two different points to create a poofy asymmetrical skirt.  This is definitely not an everyday look, so chose vintage glamour make up, Vivant Buff Soiree 3 from Fleur, and funky hair, Runway Compound from my new favorite hair store, Vintage Wear.  For shoes, I had to stick with Stiletto Moody’s Bare Greta, and of course I did not forget my clutch from Fleur.
