Old Cinema Glamour

This is a look I put together over the weekend, but failed to share with you as I had issues with my desktop.  I am using my friend’s computer in the mean time.  The dress was a weekend special from Aleida, only L$60.  It comes with the lovely pair of platform pumps which I am wearing as well.  It’s a bargain I couldn’t resist.  The headpiece is an old group gift from Bliss Couture.  I tinted it a bit darker to the same tone as my clutch.  The earrings are a group gift from Bliss Couture as well.  This one is more current and still available at the store.  Make sure you have your group tag activated to receive the gift.

It’s Only Tuesday, but …

It’s only Tuesday, but I still found some reason to dress up and check out some hot spots on the grid.  After all I have been on a spending spree ever since I have returned to SL.  There are so many good deals and sale events.  How can I resist them all?  I picked up this gorgeous golden top by Iren at XYROOM event this weekend, and mixed it up with some old and new items in my inventory to create this look.  The animal print jeans are from R’icielli, previous TDR item.  The shoes are new from a store called C’est Moi, Project Themeory item.  The knuckle clutch is so in RL so I couldn’t resist these from Hucci.  Note the poses I used today, I bought them just few hours ago at My Second Closet event, another discount/sale event.  There are so many these days it’s hard to keep track.

[ s t y l e ] Burana

Burana is another dress from Baiastice’s 2010 Fall Collection.  Sissy Pessoa has impressed me yet again with her creativity.  It’s a perfect mixture of fantasy and haute couture.  Can you imagine wearing a dress like this in RL?  I would love to own this gown in RL.  Not sure if I would have any ocassion to wear it, but who cares it’s beautiful!   By the way, the dress comes with a built in AO option scripted with animated poses, so no more hands or legs sticking out in the wrong places.

[ s t y l e ] Ivonne

Part 1 of Baiastice Fall Collection 2010 has finally arrived.  The collection is displayed at the center of the main store, in a small cluster of Italian houses.  In each house, you will find different new styles for the season.  Fall Collection 2010 carries Sissy’s signature style, elegance and femininity.  I was especially drawn to Ivonne.  Power shoulder is still “in” this season.  The sculpted drapes make this look strong and unique, yet the funky leggings add a fun twist.  Ivonne is available in various colors.  TP to Baiastice and check out Sissy’s Fall Collection 2010!

Also, don’t miss out the 50% off sale at alaMood in celebration of its first anniversary.  This is one of my favorite jewelry store in SL.  It carries a lot of interesting pieces that upgrade your look instantly.

And, let’s not forget about the poses.  Today I am using a new set from Diesel Works called Odyssey.  Love it!

[ s t y l e ] Miss Tre

Have you seen LeeZu!’s latest?  I am sure by now everybody who is mildly interested in SL fashion is well aware of LeeZu’s talents as a designer.  She does not follow RL trends but creates her own trends in SL fashion industry.  Although I have been part of LeeZu! for sometime, she never seizes to amaze me with her imagination and fun spirit.  Her designs are always interesting and captivating.  Her most recent release, Miss Tre, is no different.  I was in awe with respect and admiration.  The prims of the blouse need a bit of fitting since each one of us have a different shape, but it is worth it if one can look this good.  I love you LeeZu!  I am so proud to be part of your team.  Big hugs and kisses to the LeeZu! team!!!

Ok, I am getting a bit emotional…  It is kind of late at night~

By the way, the Dutch Touch lip tattoos for Yri Cotton skins work well with Baiastice Pulchra skins in pale tone.  Pls see close up below.

[ s t y l e ] City Chic

There are so many skin makers I love.  I am really losing my identity being tempted to change every time a new skin is released.  Today’s look came together with my new skin from Dutch Touch, Yri.  The orange lips inspired me to put together this outfit.  I often don’t wear orange so I thought I would give it a try.   When I wear bold colors, I usually limit it to one or two pieces and the rest of the outfit I like to tone it down with neutral colors.  I think that makes the whole outfit much more friendly for the eyes.

One more thing, check out my new hair attachment from Baiastice.  Sissy Pessoa has released a few new hair attachments.  I am wearing Dutch Touch hair base tattoo with it.  Dutch Touch has hairbase in tattoo layer which can be used with all your old bald skins.  I love it!  Now I can have a natural hairline with any skins I choose to wear.  By the way, I had to tint the hair attachment from Baiastice a bit darker to match the hair base from Dutch Touch, but that was rather easy.
