If you live in East Asia like me, chances are you are celebrating New Years again. Yes, we celebrate two New Years… We have Lunar New Year, based on Lunar calendar, and in some countries it is one of the biggest holidays in the year. In Korea, it is time to return to your hometown and celebrate with the family… kind of like Thanksgiving in the US. I have just returned from our traditional family brunch. Thankfully, most of my family live in Seoul, so our pilgrimage to home is just 10-15 minute drive from where we live. For today’s look, I chose to wear hanbok, traditional Korean outfit. These are gacha items from Dami, available at Shiny Shabby. It is a more modern interpretation, but I love it~ Anyways, Happy Lunar New Year!!!
Blue, turquoise, aqua, green tones are just a dreamy combination, perfect for an evening look. I fell in love with this new jewelry set from Zuri Jewelry and felt compelled to put together a look just so I can wear them!!! Usually it’s the other way around. I pick my clothes first and accessorize accordingly. Today, I have picked clothes around my jewelry. 😛 Hope you like it~
I spent the weekend cleaning up my inventory and found this gorgeous gown from Vero Modero, sitting to be blogged. The gown is an old release that recently got upgraded with appliers for mesh bodies. I am so grateful to designers who have taken the time to upgrade some of their older designs with appliers for mesh bodies. Thank you!!!
I have spent the weekend reading about filming in Second Life. I have never created a video in SL so everything is very new. You are probably wondering why a sudden interest in filming… Well, I think the best way to feature Bento items is by showing you how it moves. I got these really cool Bento wings from Bare@Rose and static pictures does no justice. Hopefully I will be a quick learner and share some cool videos of these wings~ For the time being check out video clip by Bare@Rose. These come with an AO and they are only L$100. If you are looking for some affordable cool Bento wings, stop by Bare@Rose!
I bring a bit of darkness to my blog today. This whole look started with a new face tattoo I picked up this weekend from Cureless. It is so disturbing! I wanted to create a bit of contrast to the grotesque face so I went with a very elegant look with this gown from Ever An’ Angel for SOS. The jewelry set is also available at SOS. This set is from Zuri Jewelry. Anyways, not my usual look but it’s good to try something different. By the way, make sure you stop by SOS. The event just started and there are so many goodies you will fancy. Shop and donate for a good cause!
I am drawing from Asian inspirations for this post. I am on a role with blogging since I am taking a few days of RL work these days. 🙂 Anyways, this little black dress is from Loordes of London. I love the simplicity of the dress. It’s modern yet the Japanese print gives it an interesting twist. The heels I am wearing are also from Loordes of London. Check out the close up below.
These two items are available at Addicted To Black. Addicted To Black is a new monthly event for those who love wearing black. It starts every 25th of the month and goes on for 25 days. There are various color available as well as an event exclusive, all at very affordable price of L$55 each, so make sure you check it out!
Yellow is definitely not an easy color to pull off, but if you have fairly tan skin and dark hair I think the contrast can be quite interesting. This scallop sleeveless dress is a new release from La Gazza Ladra. The stitch detail adds a bit of interesting dimension to what could be a simple dress. I added some fun accessories and wore my hair curly.
The pair of shoes are also new from Venus Shoes. I have been drooling over shoes lately and these are another pair I wish I had in RL. You can wear the shoes in multiple color combinations via HUD, but also you can choose to cover the whole foot with see through mesh. I will show you how different these pair can look with the mesh option enabled in a different post. 🙂 It’s been a stressful week in RL, but at least I have time to blog!!!
