[ S T Y L E ] Cuba

Cuba

I have always wanted to visit Cuba.  Unfortunately, I have not been lucky so far.  Cuba seems so eclectic and vibrant.  The travel reviews highlight the friendly culture and the energetic yet peaceful environment.  I tried to depict some of the images of Cuba into my outfit today… colorful and unique.

[ S T Y L E ] Exotic Holiday

Exotic Holiday

I am desperately in need of a holiday.  I have been reviewing different exotic destinations in South East Asia, but I have not made up my mind yet.  The thought of a holiday did inspire me to pick out this outfit for today’s post.  Note La Gazza Ladra moved to a new location, and is currently holding a L$50 sale on all pink and/or red items at the new location such as this outfit I am wearing today.  The hair is new from Discord Designs.  It’s great to see this brand return after some time of hiatus.  I really love this store for its unique styles.  This particular style comes with an Omega applier hairbase!  Love it!

Tropical Days

Tropical Days

In a few days, we won’t be able to wear summer dresses.  The temperature has dropped significantly and these are the last days of enjoying the warm weather.   If I had to choose my most favorite designer collection this summer is Amarelo Manga’s tropical collection.  I have worn other clothing from this line.  I especially liked the tropical print in combination of monochrome geometric print.  Today’s dress is simple though, no combination with other prints, just tropical pineapples and palm trees.  I think it works well with the fluidity of the dress.  I am sure you have noticed I am back with my Catwa Annie’s head.  After all, I feel more identified with this head and plus I picked up a new Asian skin at Cosmetic Fair.  Genesis Lab’s Mia head was more rounded and square face.  I have a longer face just like Annie. 🙂   This does not mean I will store Mia away.  I am sure I will be featuring her face from time to time.

Pineapples

Pineapples

The weather has cooled down quite a bit in Seoul.  It’s amazing.  Just a few days ago, it was sizzling hot, nearly impossible to sleep at night due to humidity and high temperatures.  Now the breeze is so cool, and I am wearing long sleeves!  Anyways, I can still enjoy the summer in SL.  This vibrant pineapple print mini dress from Amarelo Manga is so energetic.  I wish I had something similar in RL!  Did you know Amarelo Manga has an RL store?  I am not sure if the story carries similar outfits but if I ever have a chance I would love to check it out!

Pineapples

I decided to wear my hair long today.  My hairstylist is Monso; it is a recent release.  Did you know they recently updated their texture.  I love the new color choices.  Check out demos!   One more thing last day for Modern Couture sale is August 31.  A lot of items are for sale for L$50 so make sure you check it out.  The necklace I am wearing today cost me L$39!  The shoes are new from Basta!  The zipper details are so edgy… I am searching for something similar in RL. 😛

Modern Day Corset

Modern Day Corset

I was challenged to style a contemporary corset look with this new corset from TheAnnex.  This is actually the lucky board version for TheAnnex VIP members.  There is two lucky boards for VIP members which changes every 30 minutes.  There is a small fee L$100 to join the VIP group but if you ask me it’s well worth it!  Anyways, the first thing that came to my mind when I thought of “corset” was lingerie.  I wanted to stay away from more common looks so I pulled out a body conscious applier dress and decided to wear it with the corset.  It’s a bit unorthodox but I like the awkward mixture of medieval elements with modern silhouette.

Modern Day Corset
For accessories, I went with some statement pieces from Modern Couture, almost as flamboyant as some of the pieces a noble or a royalty may have worn in medieval times.  I added a classic handbag and shoes in matching deep red tones.  The heels are actually new from Al-Hanna.  It comes with a HUD loaded with lots of color choices.  For make up I went with smokey eyes and lips in neutral tones to balance out the eye-catching outfit, with simple long hair in ombre shades.  Anyways what do you think about my look today?  Let me know if you style this corset differently.  I would love to see what people come up with.
