[ s t y l e ] Maya

I have always been a huge fan of Donna Flora.  Her vintage feminine styles have always had a great appeal to me… and the jewelry is to die for and a must have.  Today’s outfit was inspired by Squinternet Larnia’s recent release, the Maya set.  I actually took inspiration from Squinternet’s sales poster for this jewelry.  I love how she styled these gorgeous pieces with a simple white dress.  It really brings out the blue of these exquisite pieces.  I really couldn’t come up with a better way to show them off, but I kept my dress short for a modern sexy twist and added Dante, sexy new heels from Kalnins.  Click on the picture and view large to see the details of the jewelry and shoes.

[ s t y l e ] Tunes Lounge

I guess this look is more appropriate for a Thursday or Friday night, but I really don’t feel like working today.  I desperately need a vacation and blow off some steam.  My ideal vacation would be hanging out by the pool or the beach, reading a book, enjoying the sun, and not worrying about deadlines.  However, since I don’t have the luxury of traveling yet, I guess a night out with friends to the hottest night spots would do.  I can’t believe I am already thinking about the weekend on a Monday!

[ s t y l e ] Princess of Arabia

Princess of Arabia is what I call my look today, wearing a gown inspired by the beauty of Mimmi Boa, Miss Bliss Couture 2010, designed by the talented designer, Amutey DeCuir.  There are lots of jewel tone colors available but I am drawn to this intense blue.  I find the color so refreshing.  Perhaps it’s the hot summer weather here.  Anyways, the gown is dreamy and sensual, a perfect mix of glamour and fantasy, something Amutey is great at.  I am actually wearing the jewelry that was designed especially for this gown by another talented designer, Alienbear Gupte.  Alienbear is well known for her detailed craftmanship.  If you are a fan of Alienbear, the Mimmi set will not disappoint you.  It comes with so many options and the crown comes with a built in facelight.  I had a harder time with shoes.  I was desperately searching for appropriate shoes for this outfit.  I had almost given up and was thinking of going barefoot when I found the perfect delicate couture shoes from 24 Shoo Shoes.  I don’t think this shoe shop is blogged a lot and I find it quite surprising because 24 Shoo Shoes carries a wide collection of delicate beauties.  If you are shoeholic like me, you should definitely check it out!

[ s t y l e ] Where Are You?

Where are you Digit?  One of my favorite designers in Second Life was Digit Darkes.  Just the other day, I went looking for her store to see if there was anything new I may have missed since I had been away from SL for a couple of months.  I could not find her store.  I thought perhaps Digit was renovating her store,  but her profile was missing.  Even her website is gone and she has removed all her products from Xstreet.  I don’t know what happened.  I guess no one knows what happened but I will truly miss her creations.  Today, I decided to wear one of my favorite dresses from Digit Darkes as a thank you for sharing her imagination and vision during her time in SL.  Thank you Digit and I hope someday you will return!  For those wanting to see some of Digit’s creations, check out pictures submitted by the members of Digit Darkes Devotees Group.

P.S.  After I wrote this post, I saw a wonderful post by Cajsa Lilliehook at It’s Only Fashion with a video of some of Digit’s beautiful creations.  Check it out here.

[ b e a u t y ] Piercing Green Eyes

I usually wear more subtle realistic eyes but sometimes I like to add a bit more intensity in my eyes especially for pictures.   Like Tyra Banks says, “Models have to smile with their eyes!”  The new line of eyes from Rosie’s Things might just add a bit of fun into your gaze.  Inspired by fruits, they are bright and colorful.  Perhaps not the most ideal if you like your avatar to look realistic, but more appropriate for those who are up for something different.  There are lots of colors to choose from but I find the Kiwi line most appealing to me.  Thank you Rosemarie for the review copy!

[ s t y l e ] All Dolled Up

I really like the way I styled my outfit for LeeZu! shift today so I decided to share it with you.  It’s fun and corky.  Sometimes I think people take fashion way too seriously when it’s supposed to be just fun.  That is why I admire designers like LeeZu, who brings her corky personality in everything she designs.  By the way, have you checked out Bliss Couture Hair?   Amutey DeCuir launched her new hair shop with 27 really interesting hair styles like the one I am wearing today.  What a great way to start the week!   Put on your funky outfits and go enjoy yourself~

[ s t y l e ] Classic Black & White

It’s monsoon season in Korea and it’s raining non-stop.  This weekend I am staying home watching some classic black & white movies, sipping some good wine and nibbling on some gourmet cheese.  One of my all time favorites is “Casablanca” with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, which is the inspiration behind my fashion style today.
