[ S T Y L E ] Emerald Dream

Emerald Dream

Emerald green is an unorthodox choice for a New Year’s Eve gown but this architectural piece from Virtual Diva could just pay off the risk.   Styled with drop earrings from Moondance Boutique, the look is just eye-catching.  The high waist elongates the body and the ruffles add dimension and volume in the right places.

Sequin Dream

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate this day!  I managed to squeeze some time away from family activities to put together this really quick post to show off this exquisite body suit from alaskametro<3.  I think it’s a perfect staple to be worn under a well tailored suit or tuxedo.  I think it would look great with a long skirt.  Gorgeous!

[ S T Y L E ] Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!  Hope everyone is spending some quality time with their loved ones~  I am certainly enjoying the time off from RL.   I am currently working on some changes for my blog for next year.  I still haven’t decided what those will be but I want to revamp the style and format.  If you have suggestions on what you would like to see please feel free to drop me a note.  On to my outfit today, this beautiful beaded gown is from Tiffany Designs.  The jewelry is included.  The make up is from Arte.  The eyeshadows are new, part of Powder Pack Catwa this month.  The lipgloss is an old release but still one of my favorites.

[ R O L E P L A Y ] Frozen Heart Fairy

Frozen Heart Fairy

A bit of magic and fantasy today…  I am wearing Entice’s exclusive for Genre this round.  The butterfly wings are bento and they are included along with the tiara.  I changed up the look a bit with translucent purplish eyes from Arte, and fantasy make up from Livia.  The ring is from Moondance Boutique, an advent gift.  As you can see I am back to my LeLutka head.  It’s by far my favorite look.  🙂

[ S T Y L E ] X-mas Cheer!

X-Mas Cheer

I am still experimenting with my new head… still tweaking and working on my shape.  This shape is much more angular than my other shapes.  I need to soften her features a bit.  Anyways, this is another formal look for the holidays.  The gorgeous Santa gown is from PureStyle.   It’s simple but very festive.  I styled it with mini angel pendant and earrings from Zuri Jewelry.  These are hunt gifts for Deck the Halls Hunt which started Dec 9th.  It’s just perfect for the season and would look great with casual clothes as well.  The hairstyle is from Monso, a new release for Kustom9.  This hair color is really growing on me.  I wonder if it would look this good in RL.  🙂
