Rock & Roll

It’s Saturday night and I am in the mood for some rock & roll.  I picked up this cute white feather cocktail dress from Unique Store for only L$49, pulled out my favorite rider’s jacket from Aoharu, added some funky accessories, and voila!  I am ready to rock!  The hair is new from Rosy Mood, currently on sale, 50% off, at Sannomiya Summer Festival.  The microphones are also new purchases from Olive Juice.  It’s a set of 6 microphones with rock star poses.  I love it and the set only costs L$50.  I don’t have a job in SL anymore, so I love finding good bargains these days.  🙂

[ s t y l e ] City Chic

I am back from my business trip in RL and back to my comfortable home in Seoul.  The weather is quite cold, and with G20 Summit, the traffic is quite terrible too, giving me no motivation to go out of my home if possible.  This is a look I put together just before my business trip but forgot to share.  It started off with my new leggings from JE*Republic.  They are hip and cool.  I would love to have a pair like these in RL.  Thank you Jungeun for the gift!!!

[ s t y l e ] Rocker Princess

Sometimes I like to mix & match items of clothing that may seem like an oxymoron, of contrasting styles.  It makes dressing up much more fun.  Mix a tutu skirt with a studded leather jacket, and be a rocker princess for the day.  Make sure the leather jacket is tight fitting so it enhances the volume of the skirt.

[ s k i n ] Shua by JE*Republic

My dear friend Jungeun Vella from JE*Republic recently released a new skin line, Shua.  She was kind to send me a review copy over the weekend and I was pleasantly surprised.  The facial features of Shua are very different from the skins I usually wear, very cute and innocent.  There are ten different make ups available, shown below.  Each make up pack comes with a variety of options, including freckles and hair base options, as well as four different eyebrow shapes.  The freckles version is the most appealing to me with a slightly sunburnt cheeks and nose.  The body detail is pretty realistic although some may find the body shading a bit too harsh, especially on the back. Also, note there are some minor visible seamlines.  Nonetheless, I believe these skins are perfect for those seeking a cute avie.  Pick up some demos and try them!!!

[ s t y l e ] Nordic Knits

I am back to my comfy knits, keeping myself warm during these cold winter days.  A trapper hat, bulky knits, boyfriend jeans and a pair old boots are some of my basics in my RL winter wardrobe.

[ s t y l e ] Azucena Queen

Today I feel like a princess wearing my new fine jewelry set from Alienbear Designs.  Azucena Queen is exquisitely made, adding a refined and elegant touch to any outfit.  This full set of jewelry includes two types of crowns and necklaces, a simpler version and a more detailed and extravagant version.   The set also comes with two different types of drop earrings.  I am wearing the more extravagant version of the crown and the necklace, as well as Type II earrings.  Type I is simpler, but equally beautiful.  Bracelets are also included in the set.  I do not get to wear my fine jewelry that often, even less a crown, but today is a special day.  I picked out a simple gown from Nardcotix to show off my new jewelry.  Note Alienbear’s jewelry are scripted to sparkle which you can turn on/off by typing the right command on chat box.

[ s k i n ] Vella by JE*Republic

Jungeun Vella from JE*Republic released her first skin collection called Vella.  I picked out Vella Snow Runway series to show you today.  I love the exotic make-up choices and the face is so luscious.  The deep set eyes and kissable glossy lips are extremely sensual. 

The body detail is quite realistic too.  Some may find the shadowing on the back a bit harsh, but overall body shading is quite lovely, especially the chest and tummy area.  There are some minor visible seamlines on the back but nothing that can’t be dismissed.  After all, a beautiful face is more important for me when choosing a skin, since I hardly get naked in SL.

Check out some of my favorite make-ups below.  Vella Snow Runway skins are available in 3 different tones: light, mid tan, and dark tan.  I am wearing mid tan.  Each skin tone has 13 different make-ups which are all different variations of smokey grey eye make up and nude glossy lips.  Each make-up pack comes with two options, with hair and without hair.  I am wearing with hair option in my pictures.  Fatpack of all 13 make-ups is quite affordable at L$3290.  You can also buy individual make up pack for L$990. 

If you are looking for some exotic skins, come down and pick up some demos.  Also, don’t forget to pick up the 2nd anniversay dollarbie skin which I blogged about here.  It’s gorgeous!
