I am back. I had to take a week off as I had problems with my back and shoulders. I am currently getting physical therapy, and pain is mostly gone. It has been only one week or so but there were so many new releases while I was gone. Kiara is the latest from Amarelo Manga, very urban and chic. I love the cut out back details of the blouse, and the peplum detail accentuates the waist line. The pants are rocker line, with decorative zipper details. The boots are simple, but in a slick shape. It comes with a HUD with various colors options which is always great to have. The fur stole is also new from Amarelo Manga, a nice accessory to add instant glam to any outfit.
Below is a close up shot of my look of the day. Check out the texture details of the outfit, loving the shine. Anyways, I am not wearing much make up today, just a dab of lip gloss. For some reason, this feels more like me. 🙂 By the way, the hair from DeLa. As I mentioned earlier, DeLa is currently having a sale. All simple color hair packs are L$99. There are tons of styles to choose from so pop by and pick up some demos!
I picked up some fantasy skins from Lumae early this year. Lumae is one of the best shops to pick up fantasy skins, offering a wide range of variety at very affordable prices. I have been meaning to wear them for some time but sat in my inventory collecting dust! Anyways, when I received this unicorn horn from Snowpaws for review, I thought it would just be perfect time to show them off with this new hair I picked up for free during the past Midnight Madness event. I chose to wear a simple white romper from Wicked, which looks great against my blue skin. Perhaps should create an alien alt. 😛 I am loving this look~
I am a big fan of jumpsuits. They are a bit inconvenient in RL, kind of troublesome when you want to go the lady’s room, but I think it’s extremely stylish and well worth the little inconvenience. This animal print number is from Vips Creations. It actually comes with a HUD which allows you to choose from various animal prints and solid colors. It’s a very versatile item to have in your inventory if you ask me. I added some furry bolero, but the pumps I am wearing and the clutch I am carrying are included in the set. It is one of those outfits you can just toss on when you are pressed for time or when you are just lazy to create a look. You can be confident you will look great!
My make up artist today is Deluxe Body Factory. I have worn this make up before, but I think it’s perfect for today’s look. The jewelry I am wearing is also old, from IT! I kept the same hair from yesterday’s post. It’s very glam, and I have been wearing this all around the grid these days.
Amarelo Manga released another cute coat dress. This one is called “Alina”, with luxurious fur details and ribbon belt. The boot which shares the same name “Alina” matches very well. I love the croc pattern, adds a bit more interesting detail to what could be just a boring simple pair of black boots. The jewelry I am wearing is also new from IT! These are temporarily on sale for L$60. Just like any other items from IT!, it comes with a HUD which allows you to choose different color options for the stones and metals. My make-up combo is old, but I went with my all time favorite alaskametro<3. My hairstylist today is DeLa. DeLa is currently having a sale on its hair collection, L$99 per single color pack, a bit more for mixed color packs. I picked up a few in brown and black tones. Go try some demos~

“Ikusa Otome” is a new release from Bare@Rose which truly represents Bare@Rose’s unique approach to fantasy. “Ikusa Otome” translates to army maiden. The outfit takes inspirations from Norse mythology (Valkyrie), and Japanese warriors, and it’s absolutely divine. The set comes with gloves, but they are for classic avatar, so I store them away. There is also a pair of boots, but I chose to wear my own pair instead. Bare@Rose outfits are filled with so much imagination. Whenever I stop by their store, I spend hours and hours looking through all the choices available. Did you know they release a new release on a daily basis?
If anyone is looking for some gym clothes in SL, make sure you stop by Wicked. Wicked is part of Add Some Red Hunt 3, and the hunt gift is this cute yoga outfit. Personally I am not inclined to wearing gym clothes in SL, mainly because I much prefer wearing fancy clothes, gowns and fantasy wear I don’t get to wear in RL. However, occasionally I like to check out some of the gyms or meditation places in SL, and the last thing you want is to show up wearing a gown. The Add Some Red Hunt 3 had a bit of rough start due to weather and failed Internet access, but it’s now all sorted out and the hint links are working! You have till the end of the month to find those great gifts. Click here for some of my picks from this hunt.
When I first saw LSR’s new release “Sexy Nadia”, I knew I wanted to draw inspirations from “Tajja” to create my look today. “Tajja” is a Korean slang term for professional gambling. It is also the title to a manga about gambling, deceit, and greed, which was later made to a movie as well as a TV series. My look today was inspired by one of the characters in “Tajja”: Madame Jung, a very skillful card player, extremely sexy and business savvy. She wore lots of body conscious dresses, showing off her curves. However, she always carried herself with a lot of confidence and elegance. I don’t know if I have done justice to Madame Jung, but hope you like the look!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope everyone is celebrating this day of love with their loved ones~ I usually do not wear much pink, especially soft pink tones, but today is a special day so why not. Plus, I picked up this outfit for free at Purple Moon. There is a hunt going on right now where you can find ten cherry drinks scattered around the outdoor area of the main store. Each drink contains beautiful items such as the top and pants I am wearing today. There is no need to join group. The hunt is open to everyone. There are no hints available, but they fairly easy to find so hop on over and give it a go!
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, SL is definitely inundated with lots of red and pink hues. How about taking a break with some blues and green? This ribbon strapless mini dress is a new release from Snowpaws. The skirt length is a bit too short for my liking, but it works with this dress. It adds that youthful flirty air to the dress. I am also wearing new jewelry from Zuri. The heart shaped jewelry ties in nicely with Valentine’s, but choose a color other than red or pink. It doesn’t scream Valentine’s and can be worn all year around. My make-up artist today is alaskametro<3. It’s another color combination “Peacock” from her latest eyeshadow release, “Muse”. I have worn other options here and here. However, this one is by far my favorite combination.
One more thing, the location where I shot today’s photos is a private property called “Little Egypt”. However, it is open for the public when it’s not rented out. You can get your “traveler” tag, wear it, and enter the property for a tour. The property is currently being rented out, so please be mindful.
NY is one of my favorite cities in the world, a melting pot of different cultures. There is just so much to see, lots of inspiration all around you. That is part of the reason why I like SL so much. There are no boundaries and the possibilities are infinite. I have met so many interesting people from all over the world, from very remote places I have not had the pleasure of visiting in RL. Anyways, I often do random searches and I found this place called Somerton Greenwich. The streets remind me so much of NY, and I found this graffiti which is the inspiration behind my look today. The outfit (coat, sleeveless knit turtleneck, and mini-skirt) are from Bare@Rose, another great ready to wear look called “Avery“. The outfit comes with multiple color options. The jacket comes in blue, red, black and white (worn). The inner top comes in brown, black, and purple (worn). These items of clothing can all be worn separately. The set also comes with a stylish hat and a pair of boots, which I am not wearing today. For those who like couple looks, there is a men’s option, called “Oliver“. Avery was actually inspired by Oliver. Sometimes I wonder if I should make a male alt, or a male shape for couple photo sessions. For now, given my inventory is overflowing and I am barely logging in as myself, having alts or collecting male items is out of question. Maybe I will reconsider, once I get around reorganizing my inventory!
