A couple of days ago, I wore this little number from TheBeautifulOnes to CIK (Club In KOTA), a popular hang out for my Korean friends in SL. CIK is a club located in a Korean sim, with regular live DJ performances playing K-pop tunes and the latest electronic music.
I am not much of a corset lover, but I liked the back details on this dress. The shoes I am wearing have matching corset details on the sides, also from TheBeautifulOnes. I stuck with the corset theme and added these stockings with similar details. 🙂 These were a past gift from Glitzz. The jewelry set I am wearing were this season’s X-mas gifts from Jumo. Simply gorgeous!
I received this beautiful high waist gown from Amarelo Manga, and I immediately thought “Roma”. I am having so much fun playing dress up. For today’s look, I accessorized with some statement jewelry pieces from Modern Couture, along with this golden laurel leaves crown also from Modern Couture. I would have worn my hair down, but wanted to show you the back and the elegant cape of the dress.
I feel like a character out of Spartacus. However, the location is a bit inaccurate because I shot my pictures at Ancient Greece… but this is a style blog so I hope you at least enjoyed my styling despite such inconsistencies. 🙂
I recently joined Fi’s Hunts blogger group. I will officially start blogging for this monthly themed hunt event starting in January with Black or White Hunt 2 (Jan 15-30), but I wanted to share a sample of items from its current hunt, Elven Forest Hunt (Dec 1-31) as a preview of what to expect going forward. As you know I love fantasy so I couldn’t resist. 🙂 Hunts are great ways to find new stores. The hair and the dress are hunt items from two stores I was not familiar with, Alli & Ali and Get Frocked. There are so many content creators inworld. I can’t wait to see what goodies the participating designers will be offering at the upcoming Black & White Hunt. If you love fantasy, there are still a few days left for Elven Forest Hunt. The items are fairly easy to find so give it a go if you haven’t yet. For a full preview of the hunt items and clues, check out Fi’s Hunts.
Star Wars Episode 7, I finally made it to the movies to watch this. Don’t worry this is not a spoiler. 😛 I actually watched the past episodes during Christmas to refresh my memory ahead of watching Episode 7. I never really enjoyed Episode 1, but Padme Amidala’s wardrobe left a lasting impression. Her outfits were out of this world, so detailed and rich. I am sure most Star Wars fan already know, but Padme’s regal style was inspired by traditional Mongolian royalty.
Today’s look was inspired by Padme. I picked up this outfit from Bare@Rose and I thought it was just perfect to create the look, a traditional Mongolian royalty outfit called “Mongolian Khalkha”. I thought I would have the most trouble finding the extravagant hairstyle, but the outfit comes with the headpiece which made the rest very easy. I added some ethnic drop down earrings and war paintings on my face. What do think? Do I look like a character out of Star Wars? By the way, the photo location of today’s pictures is Byss, City of Khayal. It’s actually a Star Wars role-playing sim, but you can still visit and look around. It’s amazing! Just make sure you attach your observer title so everyone knows you are just a visitor, and don’t interfere with any role-playing activities that may be ongoing.
I always thought a quick way to style up your look is to add a pair of stylish sunglasses. Sunglasses are a key item in my RL wardrobe. I actually wear them almost everyday. In SL, I don’t think I have featured many looks with sunglasses, mostly because I want to show the make-up combination I am wearing with the outfit. Anyways, I do own quite an extensive collection of sunnies in SL so I might as well show them off. The ones I am wearing today are from Swallow. I am loving my new Bax Coen boots so I styled another look around the boots: a belted cardigan over a jumpsuit. Note these are separate items from two different stores. I played around different sizes to get the fit right. The jumpsuit mesh shows up here and there when I walk, but nothing that can’t be covered up with my long hair. 🙂
We do not celebrate Boxing Day in Korea, but I still get the day off since it falls on a Saturday this year. I plan to spend it at home, cuddled in a warm blanket watching old movies and drinking hot cocoa. The outfit I am wearing today really resembles what I am wearing in RL, comfortable fleece lined nordic print leggings and a cozy sweater. My SL version is from alaskametro<3 and Wicked, respectively. The leggings are new available till the end of the year at Omega Tent Sale. The sweater is old, and I have worn it already here. The boots are also old, worn multiple times but they are my go to boots when I seek comfort and warmth. The hair is a new release from Monso available at Shiny Shabby. It’s so cute and different. I love it! It’s a very nice addition to my hair collection. The pose with the little french dog in my arms is from BellePoses. I love poses with props and i am hoping to show more of these going forward in my blog. Please note this is not my home so I can’t give you much details on the background deco. I took the picture at Umbral Photography. My SL home is quite empty, only a pose stand and a few boxes. It’s literally a place for me to change, unpack boxes and occasionally take studio pictures. I much prefer exploring sims! Anyways, hope everyone is enjoying the holidays… I will be back with more goodies soon.
Merry Christmas! Hope you are enjoying your holidays with your loved ones. For my Christmas Day post, I was initially going to wear something more silly and fun, but when I received this gown for review from Snowpaws, I quickly changed my mind. I just love the shape of this gown and the bow details just ties in nicely with the season. The hair I am wearing is a Christmas gift from Exxess, available at their store. It comes with two HUDs, one loaded with multiple hair colors and one with a variety of color choices for the horns. The neck ribbon is also a Christmas gift from IT!. You can pick it up at Designer Circle. Anyways this is a quick post as I am off to get ready for Christmas and spend some quality time with my family. Ciao!
