[ S T Y L E ] B&W Daisies

B&W Daisies

Black & White is this month’s theme at Fashion Dazzle, a fun shopping event organized by Palomma Casanova from Free Dove.  As many of you know, I am a big fan of Free Dove.  It’s such as a great place for newbies and old timers like myself to pick up quality items for free.  Fashion Dazzle is not free but you can find a wide variety of quality items by multiple designers at affordable prices.  Check out this cute mini dress from Emerald Couture at the event.  The matching shoes are from Shoe-ddict and they are displayed right next to the dress.  I accessorized the look with some opulent earrings and a simple clutch.  I am off to check out some clubs!

[ R O L E P L A Y ] Haenyeo

Haenyeo (해녀)

Haenyeo (해녀) or sea women are female divers in Jeju Island in Korea.  Jeju Island is the largest island off the coast of the Korean peninsula known for its mild climate even in winter, a popular tourist destination for Koreans.  Haenyeos are known to drive without air tanks.  Their diving gear consist of a wetsuit, goggles, flippers, gloves, chest weights, L-shaped weeding hoe, and a net tied to a flotation device.   They harvest abalone, octopus, sea urchins, oysters, etc.   It is a profession which is declining with modernization but still highly respected.  My look today is not a perfect recreation of haenyeo but when I saw this wetsuit from Bare@Rose I knew I wanted to dedicate my post to them.

This is a sneak preview of my look for the fall… I am loving this studded jacket from dafnis, an exclusive for Mesh Body Addicts Fair starting August 1st.  I styled it with an old pair of black jeans from Amarelo Manga and chunky ankle boots from Reign.   I kept accessories simple and just added a couple of rings from my inventory.  Hope you like it!

[ S T Y L E ] Good-Bye Vero Modero!

Good-Bye Vero Modero!

After seven years of creating extraordinary and beautiful fashion in SL, Bouquet Babii has decided to close down Vero Modero stores in-wolrd.  Her designs will remain available in marketplace, but she will no longer be creating new designs.  There is currently a closing sale which will last for about 25 days or so, so if you have been eyeing a specific item from Vero Modero this is your chance to pick it up at a discount.  Below is a visual summary of some of the looks I have featured from Vero Modero during my time as a blogger for this brand.  Click on the individual images below to go to original blog post with outfit credits.  Good bye Bouquet Babii and Team Vero Modero!  You guys have been truly inspiring.  Until we meet again… big hugs & kisses!

[ R O L E P L A Y ] Day Trip to a Japanese Bathhouse

A Day Trip to Japanese Bathhouse

I took a quick trip down Pino-Zashiki in my new yukata from Anachron.  It’s a gacha rare item which will be available at The Gacha Garden starting August 1st.  I don’t think I have featured Japanese kimonos or yukatas before although I own my fair share.  I accessorized with a few other older gacha items to create my look today.   Hope you like it!

[ S T Y L E] Red Flowers

Red Flowers

Just a few days ago, I received a surprise gift from Legendaire with a few of their newest releases and an invitation to apply to become one of their regular bloggers.  I am so honored and thankful for the invite.  I immediately applied and I am keeping my fingers crossed.  In the meantime I wanted to show you this beautiful max dress.  The dress comes with a HUD pre-loaded with 10 beautiful textures including this red flower pattern.  The dress also comes with a trendy hobo bag which is very versatile.  Well, fingers crossed!  Hopefully I get picked as one of the bloggers for Legendaire!

This new hair style from Monso for some reason reminds me of Suzy Bae, commonly known as “Suzy”, one of the most popular female singer/actress in Korea… so pretty!
