Double Take

[ S T Y L E ] Bed of Roses

Bed of Roses

roses (1)

Just yesterday while surfing my facebook feed I saw a notice by Angels Kristan from Virtual Diva Couture announcing she will be quitting SL for health reasons.  Her creations will remain in marketplace but I will certainly miss her creativity.  She brought haute couture to SL, with lot of grace and elegance.   This strategically placed bed of roses is one of her latest release currently available at Swank.  So sensual and tantalizing~   Wishing Angels a speedy recovery and I hope you will be back soon!

[ S T Y L E ] Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!  Hope everyone is spending some quality time with their loved ones~  I am certainly enjoying the time off from RL.   I am currently working on some changes for my blog for next year.  I still haven’t decided what those will be but I want to revamp the style and format.  If you have suggestions on what you would like to see please feel free to drop me a note.  On to my outfit today, this beautiful beaded gown is from Tiffany Designs.  The jewelry is included.  The make up is from Arte.  The eyeshadows are new, part of Powder Pack Catwa this month.  The lipgloss is an old release but still one of my favorites.

[ S T Y L E ] Urban Pink

Urban Pink

I took a break from all the roleplay and formal styling with this athletic urban street wear from dafnis.  It’s a new release for the 68main event.  The HUD allows you to customize your look with various color options for different parts of the outfit.  I went ti pink tones.  Pink is not my usual color choice but I have been wearing too much blue lately.  🙂  I still couldn’t let go of blue completely so blue baseball cap it is!

[ S T Y L E ] Celtic Bonnie

Celtic Bonnie

Genre’s theme this month is “The Celts”.  I am wearing the exclusive for the event by The Annex, a combination of blouse, vest and tartan long skirt.  I wish I could wear these items separately.  Unfortunately, it’s one piece.  I have styled by look with old items in my inventory.  The hair however is fairly new from elikatira, a Fifty Linden Friday item a few weeks back.  Not sure if would be able to pull this off in RL, but I do love the skirt and would like one for my RL self.

[ S T Y L E ] Streetwear

Streetwear

I am so hooked on “Show Me the Money 6”, a Korean rap competition TV show on Mnet.  It’s one of the few Korean TV shows I watch, and I love it…  There are so many talented individuals.  The show has gained quite a bit of popularity even overseas with increasing number of contestants from abroad, mainly from the US.   Two of my favorites are Junoflo and Killagramz.  Anyways, today’s look was inspired by the show.  The show obviously does not focus much on fashion, but it is sponsored by adidas thus we do see quite a bit of streetwear/sportwear.  Here is my take.

[ R O L E P L A Y ] Haenyeo

Haenyeo (해녀)

Haenyeo (해녀) or sea women are female divers in Jeju Island in Korea.  Jeju Island is the largest island off the coast of the Korean peninsula known for its mild climate even in winter, a popular tourist destination for Koreans.  Haenyeos are known to drive without air tanks.  Their diving gear consist of a wetsuit, goggles, flippers, gloves, chest weights, L-shaped weeding hoe, and a net tied to a flotation device.   They harvest abalone, octopus, sea urchins, oysters, etc.   It is a profession which is declining with modernization but still highly respected.  My look today is not a perfect recreation of haenyeo but when I saw this wetsuit from Bare@Rose I knew I wanted to dedicate my post to them.
