[ s k i n ] Vella by JE*Republic

Jungeun Vella from JE*Republic released her first skin collection called Vella.  I picked out Vella Snow Runway series to show you today.  I love the exotic make-up choices and the face is so luscious.  The deep set eyes and kissable glossy lips are extremely sensual. 

The body detail is quite realistic too.  Some may find the shadowing on the back a bit harsh, but overall body shading is quite lovely, especially the chest and tummy area.  There are some minor visible seamlines on the back but nothing that can’t be dismissed.  After all, a beautiful face is more important for me when choosing a skin, since I hardly get naked in SL.

Check out some of my favorite make-ups below.  Vella Snow Runway skins are available in 3 different tones: light, mid tan, and dark tan.  I am wearing mid tan.  Each skin tone has 13 different make-ups which are all different variations of smokey grey eye make up and nude glossy lips.  Each make-up pack comes with two options, with hair and without hair.  I am wearing with hair option in my pictures.  Fatpack of all 13 make-ups is quite affordable at L$3290.  You can also buy individual make up pack for L$990. 

If you are looking for some exotic skins, come down and pick up some demos.  Also, don’t forget to pick up the 2nd anniversay dollarbie skin which I blogged about here.  It’s gorgeous!

Tuli released Hope Skins in Goth tones.  These are so beautiful.  Even if you are not a goth or a vampire in SL, I am sure you will appreciate the chilling sensuality of these skins.   There are 10 different make-ups available (shown below).  Although goth is not my usual style, I have been dressing up as a vampire all week just to wear these skins.  Check out what I have been wearing over at Timeless Agency blog too.

[ s t y l e ] STYLE – Park Gija

[ s t y l e ] STYLE - Park Gija

Today’s look was inspired by a character in a Korean drama called STYLE, currently showing on SBS TV channel in Korea.  The character Park Gija is a fashion editor of a top fashion magazine.  She is extremely stylish.  Her look is characterized by extremely well fitted, sultry yet fashionable outfits, with lots of bold accessories and too die for shoes.  Though the TV drama lacks reality, it’s quite entertaining watching all the clothes, the jewelry, the bags, the shoes, etc. in the show.

To  create the look, I chose one shoulder dress from Stylissimo, fancy shoes from Digit Darkes, bold jewelry from Kraftika and +plus, and stylish bag from Baiastice.  For hair, I had to go with my favorite short hair, which was a freebie available at the Amorepacific sim.  Unfortunately, the sim has closed down and the freebies are no longer available.  It resembles Park Gija’s hairstyle so much.  For make up, I chose a dramatic make up from [42] Skins.

[ p o s t c a r d ] The Nameless

[ p o s t c a r d ] The Nameless

I came across RELIC – The Nameless Isle by pure coincidence.  I don’t even remember how I ended up at this sim, but the landing spot immediately caught my attention.  It is beautifully decorated with gleaming cobwebs and trees, and I knew it was a perfect spot for a snapshot. I pulled out my new outfit from LittleGirl and decided to bring a bit of early Halloween to you all.  By the way, RELIC is a place to shop for decorations, furniture, trees, etc.  If you are in need of some beautiful decorations, check it out.

[ s k i n ] Free Skins from Nuuna’s Skins at Vanity Hair

[ s k i n ] Free Skins from Nuuna's Skins at Vanity Hair

This is just a quick post on some great free skins I picked up today.  I wore one of the skins for my most recent style post and got a lot of questions on it, so I decided to write a separate post on them.  The store is called Nuuna’s Skins.  You can find the store on the second floor of Vanity Hair.  I randomly stumbled on these skins browsing around for some new hairstyles. 

Nuuna Nitely combined Sezmra Svarog’s Splendor line and Elot Eliot’s Pleiades line to create her skins.  The make ups are gorgeous, mostly high fashion perfect for the runway.  Her skins are quite affordable, L$150 per pack of 4~7 make ups.  TP now and get a free sample of her skins shown above!

[ s t y l e ] Roselia

I recently discovered a new store, Zenith.  At least it’s quite new to me.  I was strolling around Godgan Mall.  Godgan Mall is a small shopping mall run by a group of Korean content creators called SL Godgan.  SL Godgan dedicates to foster new Korean content creators.  Some well known designers like Jungeun Vella of JE*Republic, Sopha McCallen of My Ugly Dorothy, Joman Mai of JM:Mai, Beaumont Ryba of Little Girl, etc. are all active members of Godgan.

Anyways, I was checking out to see if there were any new designers at Godgan Mall when Zenith caught my attention.  Miffyhoi Rosca, the designer behind Zenith, is not Korean, but she has a small store at the mall.  I immediately checked out her main store and picked out a couple of items, including this dress I am wearing today.  I love the tulip shape of the skirt and the big bold prints.  I kept the accessories quite simple today.  The dress alone with eyecatching prints and volume has a lot of design elements.  Adding fancier accessories would be too over the top in my opinion, thus I added some simple white gloves, simple white pumps from Maitreya, and some blue pearl earrings and matching bracelet from Alienbear Designs.  As a last touch, I decided to carry a bright red clutch from MN Handbags to add a pop of color to the whole look.  Make up was kept clean and sophisticated, clean black eyeliner and bright red lips, a freebie from Nuuna’s Skins at Vanity Hair.  For hair, I chose also clean high fashion updo also from Vanity Hair.
