Angel of Twilightscape

Angel of Twilightscape

Does this dress look a bit familiar?  This stunning outfit is a new version of “Angel of Nightscape” from Bare@Rose  I had so much fun shooting back in September.  I was in awe when I first saw it at Bare@Rose 10 Year Anniversary Fashion Show, and this new version “Angel in Twilightscape” in red is equally eye-catching!  The detail is amazing.  I should learn how to shoot videos, because there is a lot lost in these pictures.  The cityscape at the bottom of the dress rotates; the movement of the cityscape is what makes this outfit extraordinary!

Once again, I decided not to wear the gloves provided because I wanted to wear my Maitreya mesh body with the dress.  The gloves are for classic avatars.  There is also a gold necklace included in the outfit but I wanted to wear earrings instead.  The earrings are from Modern Couture.  You can always take off the wings and the cityscape attachments and just wear the dress.  Look at the sexy silhouette of the dress!  It’s glamorous for any formal event.

Fantasy Muse

My Own Muse

Like most people on the grid, I have been busy shopping!  I picked up a few hairstyles from Elikatira, Truth, and even Magika, and invested in some new poses for my blog.  There are so many bargains going on right now… I am going broke!  Anyways, today’s look is somewhat different from what I usually wear.  Yula Finesmith has returned from her maternity break, and she is holding a 70% off sales in her store this weekend.   I picked up this gorgeous eye-catching jewelry set called “Fantasy Muse” which is the main focus of my outfit today.  The bodysuit is from Circa Couture.  I believe it cost me only L$10 on marketplace.  It’s applier clothing so you can easily mix and match with mesh clothing.  Once again for shoes I chose thigh high boots.  I am wearing them almost everyday!

Wicked Winter Flakes

Wicked Pink

This is a really quick post before I hop around from store to store checking out all the Black Friday bargains.  I already have a long list of stores I must visit.  Anyways, back to my tour of Winter themed sims, I stopped by Winter Flakes, a sim beautifully decorated with magical winter scenery and Christmas decorations.  I snuggled into my new sweater mini dress from Wicked.  As I mentioned in my previous post, I have joined Wicked blogger group recently.  Naturally I will be featuring a lot of their items on this blog.  I kept the rest of the outfit very simple with a pair of sleek thigh high boots.  I added soft pink touches with my new hair from Exile and clutch from Bold & Beautiful.  The set of jewelry I am wearing is the same set I wore with my tweed suit here.  I just changed color of the stone to pink/purple tones from black/grey tones via HUD.   Check out the close up shot of my accessories below.  Well, off I go shopping!  Ciao~

Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel
Coco Chanel has been one of the most inspiring designers at all times.  Despite rumors of her activities during Germany’s occupation of France during WWII and her possible affiliation with the German intelligence at the time, her footprint in the fashion industry is undeniable.  From the little black dress, camellias, and the “Chanel” suit, she has left behind quite a number of signature items including the infamous 2.55 bag.  Today’s post is in dedication of Coco Chanel who liberated women from corset silhouettes and brought practical and comfortable clothes for women.  The outfit I chose for this post is a new release from Bare@Rose, “Chidoria“.  Most people associate Bare@Rose with role play and fantasy costumes, but it also offers stylish everyday options like this tweed suit I am wearing today.  The set comes with a pair of black boots, as well as a lighter color jacket, skirt and inner options, which I have stored away for another occasion.

Coco Chanel
Today I have accessorized more than usual, so I have added some close up shots of my accessories: 2.55 bag from Ricielli, pearl and flower motif necklace and earrings, big cocktail ring, and gold watch decorated with jewel stones from Donna Flora, and my everyday ring from Swallow.

Coco Chanel

I am loving this outfit.  Some may say its matronly, but I think it’s very elegant and chic.  You can wear the tweed jacket over jeans for a more casual youthful look.  The tweed skirt can be worn with a leather biker jacket for an edgier look.  Perhaps that will be my next challenge, showing you different ways to wear the same item of clothing. 🙂  I have done it before and it was quite fun.  Anyways, below is a full body shot of my look today.  Hope you like it!  Ciao!

Arosa Winter

Arosa Winter
My travel exploring winter themed sims led me to Arosa, a sim based on a real place in Switzerland.  Arosa is a little village at the valley of a range of scenic mountains.   There is a “Winter Market” at the center of the village which reminds me of “Christmas Villages” in Europe.  This quaint village offers a variety of winter activities.  There is even a free sauna.  For more details, check out Arosa SL’s blog.   On to the look of the day, pink is not a color I wear much in RL, but given today’s location is called Arosa I gave pink a go.  I mixed it with neutral colors as well as plum/mauve tones, and I quite liked the outcome.  The long t-shirt is a free gift from Vincue available at The Kawaii Project.  I layered a long sleeve top from Posh Tale under the t-shirt for extra warmth.  The jeans are applier clothing from alaskametro<3, which I have worn many times previously.  I wore these boots yesterday too.  They are part of the full outfit from ba!Designs along with the knit hat + hair.  Both are HUD driven for multiple color options.  The scarf is really old.  Although I have deleted a old items in my inventory, I have kept some of the sculpted accessories and poses.  The bag and bangles are from trs.  The bangles were a dollarbie at the mainstore.  The bag is a freebie available at Free*Style.  Anyways, my search for interesting places and things to do continues.  Any recommendations, please let me know!  🙂

A Winter Preview

Winter Preview

Temperatures have dropped quite a bit in Seoul, and I can feel the winter just around the corner.   So, today I went around exploring some winter themed sims in Second Life.  First stop was Winter Wonderland at Two Moon Paradise, a place where you can enjoy the beautiful winter scenery, dance in skates, and hang out with reindeers and bears.  I saw a lot of couples on a date at this place… I tried my best not to disturb them while taking my pictures.  🙂  Anyways, I have a bit of good news… at least good news for me.  I have joined Wicked as one of their regular bloggers.  Yay!  The sweater I am wearing today is a group gift.  It comes with a HUD which allows you to customize the color of the cowl neck, cuffs and ends of the sweater.  I didn’t venture and kept the colors the same as the main body of the sweater.  The skinny jeans are from HOC Industries.  They are only L$10 and it comes with a HUD with 11 color options as well, a true bargain.  I have worn them here before in red.  The hair is new from Truth available at Uber.  I picked them up during my recent shopping trip.  The hair can be worn without the hat.  You can also customize the colors of the hat via HUD.  The bag is also a fairly recent purchase from Bens Beauty & Boutique.  The boots are part of a full outfit from ba!Designs.  Both come with HUD as well. I love HUD; I wish we had HUD in RL too!  😛
