[ S T Y L E ] Bye Bye Artizana!

Good-Bye Artizana!

Artizana is closing down by end of the year.  Dainie Fraina is taking a break from SL and plans to spend more time with her loved ones.  The mainstore in SL will close on Dec 22.  The marketplace store will stay open till Dec 31st.  Take advantage of 40% off at the mainstore and pick up some gorgeous ethnic pieces for your wardrobe.  This is your last chance.  Below are some suggestions from me… some of my favorite looks from Artizana.  Lastly, I want to thank Dainie for giving me the opportunity to blog her creations and wish her happy SL retirement!  I sincerely hope you come back some day~

[ S T Y L E ] Namaku IX

Namaku

I think I am finally satisfied with my Catwa shape.  After long hours of tweaking and trying different skins and Catwa heads, I feel like myself in this shape and skin.  I am not wearing any make up today so you can see how I look like with no make up!  It’s certainly prettier than my RL self with no make up. 😛  Anyways, today’s look is the free group gift version of a look I wore about one month ago from Artizana.  The turtle neck cropped sweater and baggy pants combo can be worn separately and I am sure anyone can get good use out of them.  There is a L$100 fee to join the group.   The feather jewelry set is from Nord Embel’Lys.  It’s an old release but it’s one of my favorites.  The hair style is new from Alli&Ali.  It looks best with a hair base.  I am wearing one from Alli&Ali.

It’s Friday and I am exhausted.  It’s been a tough week at work.  It’s time to kick off the heels and relax.  I am so looking forward to the weekend.  Anyways, before I log off I wanted to share Artizana’s new release available at Boho Culture Fair.  It’s a combination of a cropped sweater and baggy pants.  Artizana always has a way with patterns.  I love it!

This is just a quick post with some old items in my inventory… I have worn this outfit from Artizana before in a different color combination here.  I love it so decided to feature it again.  This time I styled it a bit different.  The make-up is new from Arte.  The eyes and lipstick were exclusives for Catwa Powder Pack September edition.  The colorful eyeliner is a new release available at Applique.  I love the contrast to my dark skin.  This is one of my favorite skins from Pink Fuel, also a previous Catwa Powder Pack edition.

Just a quick look I put together as I hang around in my apartment today.  I have severe back pains so I have been staying in bed all day with nothing but a few books, Netflix and SL to entertain me.  I can’t really complain.  I have been quite happy and entertained creating outfits and catching up in blogging.  This ensemble is from Artizana.  As many of you know, it is one of my favorite store in SL, carrying a wide range of ethnic pieces.   The store is in the midst of moving, so in the meantime please check out its store in marketplace.

I forgot to bring my swimsuit to Spain and I am in desperate need to go shopping for one.  There is this great public outdoor swimming pool right around the corner and I am missing out on all the fun.  Hopefully by tomorrow, I will be blogging in between swims and sunbathing.  Life is good in Spain… so relaxing!  Anyways back to SL, don’t forget to check out The Aloha Fair.  The Aloha Fair closes door in a couple of days on August 11.  Today, I am modeling some of my picks from the fair: the gorgeous tye die bikini from Artizana, and embellished jewel earrings from IT!
