[ S T Y L E ] Psychedelic Comfort

Psychedelic Comfort
This new release from Luxe Paris reminds of the 60’s… The psychedelic print top over black mini skirt has a modern twist.   A bit hippie, a bit sexy… me like it!   The coin purse chain belt is included in the outfit.

I was doing inventory cleaning today and found this cute outfit from The Annex released at We ❤ Role Play.  The halter top and micro shorts are something I would not wear in RL but in SL it works.  By the way I will be implementing some changes to my blog which I will share in the near future.

This is a quick snapshot of me wearing my new undies from Entice.  This set is an exclusive release for Whimsical.  The HUD allows you to customize with multiple color combinations, even the little flower details.  The choices are nearly infinite.  The hair and skin for this post are bargains.  The cute hair is a gift from Ayashi at Shop You Heart Out!  Today is the last day so hurry.  There are lots of free gifts by designers for the event as well as up to 50% off in a lot of goodies.  The skin was a L$50 item for Fifty Linden Friday this past weekend from Glam Affair.  I love how it looks in my avie!

My battle with the flu is not over yet…  I have been in bed all weekend.  I finally managed to get out of bed and log in for a quick post.  This lovely robe and undies set is a new release from LUXE Paris.  This is something I would totally wear lounging around in my RL home.  It’s so pretty!!!  The make up is a little preview of what to expect at Blush from Livia.  I am especially loving the lashes~

Studded

I have always had a thing for studs.  I remember when I bought my first pair of studded pumps from Stiletto Moody.  I bought them in every color and wore it with everything.  Then came the studded caps, jackets, bras, etc.  This is not the first studded bra to be featured here.  Previous styles were from Vero Modero, which has closed down.  I found a nice alternative from Pink Ice at Dazzle worn with my new leggings from alaskametro<3 for a simple, edgy look.

I am in love with this new leggings from alaskametro<3.  It’s an exclusive for Applique event.  The hologram effect is beautiful and it goes so well with my glitter poncho from LeeZu!  Just the other day, someone asked on facebook which closed store one wish would come back… which got me thinking I should bring back some of those old items back in my blog.  Blogging these days is so much about new releases, I have been neglecting some of my favorite pieces in my inventory.   LeeZu! is closed, but a lot of items are still available in marketplace.

Turtle Flare is a new release by Bare@Rose.  It’s a turtle neck mini dress with a flare skirt and bell sleeves.  The set comes with three different color versions: grey, pink and yellow.  I chose to wear the pink version today.  The long pendant necklace is included as well along with a pair of long thigh high boots which I replace with these sexy heels from Empire.  I am usually not a big fan for bell sleeves but this is one of those rare exceptions I say yes.

Winter Olympics 2018…  I thought it would be appropriate to play homage to one of the greatest Winter Olympians we have had in Korea, Yuna Kim.  She is retired but has inspired a lot of young talent to dream high, so graceful and elegant.  I am a big fan~
