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.

Sorry for the lack of posting but I have been under the weather. I have been away only for a few days but it certainly feels like an eternity. 🙂 Anyways with Christmas just around the corner, I bring you a Santa look. Unlike many other sexy versions out there, I quite like this one. It’s much more discrete and more appropriate for the day! I added some candy cane eyeshadow for a bit of more fun to the look~ These were free so make sure to pick them at Izzie’s.
CDA is one of the participating stores in Add Some Red Hunt 3. Unlike other designers and stores, its hunt gift is not Valentine’s inspired, but it’s this red soccer outfit for men and women. I thought it would be fun to do something different for my post today, play some soccer or at least pretend to! I actually have no talent whatsoever for sports, but in SL it doesn’t matter. The outfit comes with mesh socks and soccer sneakers, but they didn’t fit my mesh body and feet well, so I added my own socks and sneakers instead. The socks are applier clothing from Girl Thursday. The sneakers, I picked them up from Big O in marketplace. I am sure some of you are curious about the poses I used for my post today. Unfortunately I picked these up years ago from Milestone Creations, and I am not sure if they are still available. Anyways, one thing to note about Add Some Red Hunt, the main organizer Fiona Scofield apparently is having difficulties accessing Internet, thus the main website has not been updated. Please click here for a temporary website, where you can see the hunt gifts, participating stores, and hints for the hunt. The hint for for CDA is “Use me to get a cab, or a Pizza!”.
I have been a bit sick the last couple of days, so I have been staying home and resting, catching up on sleep. I feel so much better today, much more energetic. At least I am feeling well enough to blog, and play around in SL. 🙂 I do plan to spend the weekend at home though, just taking it a bit easy until I am fully recovered. Thus, today’s look is all about comfort.
I received these wearable poses “Kitty Love” from Jinx for review. They are exclusive gatcha items for Fair Play which runs between Feb 1 and Feb 27. Above is the “Kitty Footstool”; below is “Kitty Sofa”. Both are common items that come as a wearable and a rezzable. Wearable comes with only one pose, but the rezzable has three integral poses. How cute are they? There are also a “Kitty Chair” and “Kitty Ottoman” not pictured which are also very cute.
The rug below “Kitty Love Rug” is a rare item. It comes with a rezzable version and an HUD to change the colors of the rug and the kitties. I love this one. Another rare item is the “Kitty Love HUD” which allows you to change the colors of the furniture and the kitties of the common items. It’s only L$75 to play. These items are perfect for any kitty lovers.
I wear a lot of brown tones in RL and today’s look really resonates my RL look of the day: a comfortable and roomy sweater with a pair of skinnies. The key to wearing outfits in one color tone is to mix textures and patterns in different shades. It’s less boring. I love how the snake skin texture of the bag just pops. The shoes even have subtle prints which is way more interesting than just plain simple pair of pumps. For a more office appropriate look, swap out the skinnies with dress pants and you are ready to go.
My first instinct when I received this new dress from Snowpaws, “Ballerina Dress”, is to dress up like a delicate ballerina. However, that would just be boring, so I added this jacket from LaVian to give it a bit of rock & roll twist. Plus, I don’t think many can pull off an entire outfit in hot pink! It’s been awhile since I have worn a flexi skirt. I had forgotten how it bounces nicely when you walk. 🙂 Below is a picture of the dress on its own without the jacket.
The make up combination I am wearing is the same as yesterday’s but with a slightly different shade of lipstick. As I mentioned yesterday, make sure you pick up these gorgeous lipstick appliers from alaskametro<3. They are free! I added a close up of my shoes today. I wanted to show off my toe nails but also my new pair of shoes from VIPs Creations. One can never have enough pair of shoes. I am a shoeaholic in RL and SL is no exception. 😛
