[ s t y l e ] Romantic Casual

[ s t y l e ] Romantic Casual

This is just a quick day time look I put together with some of my recent purchases.  Pairing up a gorgeous feminine top with your favorite pair of jeans is a universal fashion formula.  The top I picked for today’s look is part of Kunglers‘ new release, Angela Cherry Dress. The tube top is sexy yet sophisticated.  The floral print add a feminine touch.  The capri jeans are Tuli‘s latest and they are already one of my favorites.  The detail is amazing.  Slingback heals from Cherry and stylish tote bag from Bare Rose are also new additions to my inventory.  The bracelets and earrings were previous group gifts from different designers.  Thank you~  For hair and make up, I went with a casual ponytail from ETD and smoky make up from YourSkin & YourShape.  Note the skin is a new release and will be doing a separate post showing you the different make ups.

[ p o s t c a r d ] Little Forest by LittleGirl

A few weeks ago, my friend Beaumont Ryba invited me to her brand new resting area, Little Forest, right next to her main store, LittleGirl.   I was caught up with other obligations, so I did not get a chance to visit till now.  The area is beautifully decorated with yellow flowers, robust green trees, a cozy piano area, as well as different pose balls around the area with dancing and other animated poses.  It’s a nice little place for picture taking.  Come by and check it out at your leisure.

[ s k i n ] Loreena Light by Le Pinceau

Le Pinceau is a new store to me.  I discovered it while browsing through the fashion feeds when I saw their skin fatpack sale being extended to July 22.  Being a skin whore I am, I immediately tp-ed to Le Pinceau to check it out.  I was delightly surprised to find some cute skins at very affordable prices, fatpacks of 6-7 skins for only L$950.  All skins are available in three different tones: pale, light, and light tan.

My favorite is Loreena Light.  Look at the cute facial features.  The light freckles on the face and the well defined pouty lips add a fresh and young look.  The body detail is quite realistic, but soft with appropriate shadings.  There are some minor visible seamlines but nothing I can’t overlook.  I wish the eyebrows were darker, but that is my personal preference as I usually wear dark brown or black hair.

Below are the different make up options available.  Note the fatpack sale is till July 22 so hurry if you want to take avantage of the discount.  Also, the poses used for this post are from Diesel Works, currently 40% off on all single modeling pose sets with the exception of the modeling chair for group members.  Be sure to wear the Diesel Works Group tag to get refunded.  The sale runs till July 26th.

[ s k i n ] Spanish Skins by Unique Megastore

[ s k i n ] Spanish Skins by Unique Megastore

I am very fond of Spain, mainly because I spent most of my childhood growing up in a small town in Spain.  My family still lives there and I try to visit at least once a year.  So when I found this gorgeous Spanish skin at Unique Megastore, my heart went all warm and fuzzy.  The facial features capture the sensuality of the Spanish women.  I love the little black mole on the face.  Like other skins by Nani Merlin, the body detail is quite realistic.  The fatpack contains eleven different make ups, each with two different options (one with mole and one without mole), one pair of beautiful eyes by Nani Merlin, and a unique shape by Iarita Beck.  Below are some of my favorite make up options.  Note I am wearing my own shape and eyes for these pictures, but the shape and the eyes included in the fatpack are gorgeous.

[ s t y l e ] Bye Bye Crimson Shadow!

[ s t y l e ] Bye Bye Crimson Shadow

As you may all know, Rezzable is closing down most of their SIMs in Second Life including Crimson Shadow.  Although I am not into goth or role play, Crimson Shadow was definitely one of my favorite places to visit in SL.  Before closing its doors completely, Crimson Shadow is having an everything for L$50 sale.  I am not sure how long it will last, but there are some great pieces that are stylish for any ocassion even if you are not a vampire or goth.  I picked out this gorgeous black corset feather dress, styled it with some black pearl earrings from Paper Couture and patent ankle boots from Bax Coen.  My hair is from JE*Republic, one of its most recent release Olivia. The skin is from Laqroki, also a recent release, Claudia. 

If you have never been to Crimson Shadow, I strongly suggest you hurry and take a tour of this luscious vampiric area before it closes down.

[ s k i n ] Indian Skins by Unique Megastore

Just continuing with my ramblings about some of my favorite ethnic skins from a few weeks ago, I bring you another pick from Unique Megastore, the Indian skins.  Just like the Egyptian skins, the Indian skins have unique facial features.  The face is absolutely gorgeous and the body detail is delightful.  Indian skins by Nani Merlin have 15 different make up options, with an assortment of make ups with traditional Indian designs as well as regular make ups.  Below are some of my favorites.  The fatpack contains all 15 make ups, a unique shape created by Iarita Beck and a pair of beautiful brown eyes by Nani Merlin.  Once again, I am wearing my own shape for this post.

[ s t y l e ] Summer Snow

[ s t y l e ] Summer Blues

“It’s summer snow in the deep blue sea.”

I was listening to Sissel – Summer Snow while I put together today’s fairy-like outfit.  Leda Dress from This is a Fawn has been blogged quite a bit lately, but I love the delicate look of this dress and decided to give it my own spin to create the perfect fairy like dress for these hot summer days.  The dress is supposed to be worn as a baby doll dress, but I pulled the prim skirt lower to by waistline and added some high collar lacy blouse under the dress.  Feminine hair updo and ballet flats enhances the delicate nature of this look.

Note today’s skin is a beta version of CHAI SKINS’ upcoming new skin line NOVA.  I was lucky to be chosen as one of the 40 beta testers.  Overall I am very happy with the skin and can’t wait to see the end result as well as the make up options available. 

One last thing, the poses used for this blog post are from my old time favorite animation store, Reel Expression.  Reel Expression kick off its 5 year anniversary with a 25% storewide sale at 8pm on July 11th.  The sale will last till July 25th.  Take advantage of the sale to pick up some of the best poses in SL.  Happy 5th Anniversary!
