Where are you Digit? One of my favorite designers in Second Life was Digit Darkes. Just the other day, I went looking for her store to see if there was anything new I may have missed since I had been away from SL for a couple of months. I could not find her store. I thought perhaps Digit was renovating her store, but her profile was missing. Even her website is gone and she has removed all her products from Xstreet. I don’t know what happened. I guess no one knows what happened but I will truly miss her creations. Today, I decided to wear one of my favorite dresses from Digit Darkes as a thank you for sharing her imagination and vision during her time in SL. Thank you Digit and I hope someday you will return! For those wanting to see some of Digit’s creations, check out pictures submitted by the members of Digit Darkes Devotees Group.
P.S. After I wrote this post, I saw a wonderful post by Cajsa Lilliehook at It’s Only Fashion with a video of some of Digit’s beautiful creations. Check it out here.

I am not Miss Singapore. I am not even Singaporean, but Singapore is one of my favorite countries in Asia. Just this month, I visited Singapore twice already and no, it’s not close from home. It’s about a seven hour plane ride away. Beautiful Christmas lights, great food, and friendly people, Singapore is a melting pot of a lot of different cultures which is very appealing to me.
When I saw the new releases from Nicky Ree and Alienbear honoring Singapore, I knew I had to get my hands on them. Both designers were inspired by the national flower of Singapore, Vanda Miss Joaquim, a tropical flower. Well known for their intricate and beautiful textures and prim work, Nicky Ree and Alienbear have outdone themselves this time. I just feel so feminine and exotic!
Note the dress can be worn in many different ways. Above, I tried to show you some options.
With year end festivities, I find myself drawn to cocktail dresses and evening gowns. Today’s little dress is a new release from Lark. This deep jewel tone satin dress is just perfect for a cocktail party. The cute ribbon detail is playful. Throw on a fur stole, satin gloves and delicate jewelry to add a touch a glam to the whole look. For make up I went with the X-mas skin from YourSkin & YourShape, dramatic eyes and red lips.

Today’s look was inspired by a character in a Korean drama called STYLE, currently showing on SBS TV channel in Korea. The character Park Gija is a fashion editor of a top fashion magazine. She is extremely stylish. Her look is characterized by extremely well fitted, sultry yet fashionable outfits, with lots of bold accessories and too die for shoes. Though the TV drama lacks reality, it’s quite entertaining watching all the clothes, the jewelry, the bags, the shoes, etc. in the show.
To create the look, I chose one shoulder dress from Stylissimo, fancy shoes from Digit Darkes, bold jewelry from Kraftika and +plus, and stylish bag from Baiastice. For hair, I had to go with my favorite short hair, which was a freebie available at the Amorepacific sim. Unfortunately, the sim has closed down and the freebies are no longer available. It resembles Park Gija’s hairstyle so much. For make up, I chose a dramatic make up from  Skins.

Today, I’ve put together some of my favourite items in my inventory and mixed them to acheive the city chic look. I am playing around with white,silver and black color theme. Special note on this hair, it’s the new release from MADesigns. They are also selling hairs now. This hair although suppose to be men’s hair but I love it at first sight and glad that it still fits well and certainly can be used for both male and females.

Today’s outfit started off with the shoes. These shoes were a gift from Digit Darkes to all the models of Timeless Agency for Christmas. Thanks Digit! The picture does no justice to the shoes but you should definitely stop by Digit Darkes and check them out. These are exclusive designs for Timeless but there are other great options available. I bought a few in different patterns.
Anyways, these shoes had so many colors to play with, greens, pinks, and yellows. I chose this neon green tube top from Random Fashions (Garbage) and decided to go for a Rock Chic look today. Spiky bracelet and the cross necklace are essential accessories for this look. I added a bit of colorful fur to make it a bit different. As for jeans, I wanted an almost black/dark navy jeans. After searching in my inventory, I found these from Royal Blue.
My hairstyle today is from Tukinowaguma, one of my favorite hair store. It’s definitely worth a visit, extremely affordable prices for some great hair, especially if you are looking for some funky hairstyles like mine. The skin is a freebie I picked up from  a while back. If you have been following my blog, you probably know I incorporate a lot of cheap or free items in my look. I do splurge but I also love good deals.
