[ S T Y L E ] Studded

Studded

studdedbra.jpg

I have always had a thing for studs.  I remember when I bought my first pair of studded pumps from Stiletto Moody.  I bought them in every color and wore it with everything.  Then came the studded caps, jackets, bras, etc.  This is not the first studded bra to be featured here.  Previous styles were from Vero Modero, which has closed down.  I found a nice alternative from Pink Ice at Dazzle worn with my new leggings from alaskametro<3 for a simple, edgy look.

I am in love with this new leggings from alaskametro<3.  It’s an exclusive for Applique event.  The hologram effect is beautiful and it goes so well with my glitter poncho from LeeZu!  Just the other day, someone asked on facebook which closed store one wish would come back… which got me thinking I should bring back some of those old items back in my blog.  Blogging these days is so much about new releases, I have been neglecting some of my favorite pieces in my inventory.   LeeZu! is closed, but a lot of items are still available in marketplace.

Turtle Flare is a new release by Bare@Rose.  It’s a turtle neck mini dress with a flare skirt and bell sleeves.  The set comes with three different color versions: grey, pink and yellow.  I chose to wear the pink version today.  The long pendant necklace is included as well along with a pair of long thigh high boots which I replace with these sexy heels from Empire.  I am usually not a big fan for bell sleeves but this is one of those rare exceptions I say yes.

[ S T Y L E ] Winter Skating

Winter Skating

Winter Olympics 2018…  I thought it would be appropriate to play homage to one of the greatest Winter Olympians we have had in Korea, Yuna Kim.  She is retired but has inspired a lot of young talent to dream high, so graceful and elegant.  I am a big fan~

[ S T Y L E ] Bed of Roses

Bed of Roses

roses (1)

Just yesterday while surfing my facebook feed I saw a notice by Angels Kristan from Virtual Diva Couture announcing she will be quitting SL for health reasons.  Her creations will remain in marketplace but I will certainly miss her creativity.  She brought haute couture to SL, with lot of grace and elegance.   This strategically placed bed of roses is one of her latest release currently available at Swank.  So sensual and tantalizing~   Wishing Angels a speedy recovery and I hope you will be back soon!
