[ S T Y L E ] Peachy Keen

Peachy Keen

The wait for a new release from Tiffany’s Design has been worth it!  I absolutely love this new dress… “Sophia” is so playful and elegant.  It’s available in a variety of beautiful colors but I think this peachy cream color suits my dark skin very well.  The matching golden thigh high boots are also from Tiffany’s Design.  I am sure I will be wearing these quite often, especially with all those micro mini dresses which are so common in SL.  🙂  I added some classic pearls from Zuri Jewelry.  For hair, I went with an elegant up-do from Fireflight.  For make-up, I stuck with alaskametro<3 and Arte.  By the way, I finally managed to tweak my shape for Catwa’s Sofia.  It looks so much like my Kimberly shape.  I don’t even know why I bothered buying a new head. 😛

[ S T Y L E ] Dynasty 2017

Dynasty 2017

With SL giving me so much trouble this weekend, I spent most of the weekend binge watching TV series on Netflix including 2017 remake of the 80’s prime time soap opera “Dynasty.” The few episodes I watched was so-so but I still put together this outfit inspired by the fashion in the series.  The stylish power shoulder mini dress is from LUXE Paris to be showcased at the upcoming fashion show “Eclat Des Fetes” on November 25 at 11am SLT.   It’s been a while since I have attended a fashion show in SL, so I am looking forward to this event.  🙂  I remember the days when I used to strut the runway praying to the gods of lag for smooth sailing.  Hopefully I will be able to take some pictures of the show!

[ S T Y L E ] Geometric White

Geometric White

My look today is very minimalist but I am loving the simplicity of it.  The geometric print skirt adds an interesting dimension to the overall look.  This skirt is new from alaskametro<3, an exclusive for Fashion Dazzle.  The skirt is available in three different prints.  Each skirt comes with a HUD pre-loaded with three different colors.  I chose to wear white version today… so warm and cozy!

Kyoto

There are a lot of sims inspired by Japan.  I had the pleasure of visiting Kyoto Kagai today.  It’s a great sim beautifully decorated with lots of interesting little shops and places to visit and look around.  If you are looking for a Japanese backdrop, this could be the perfect place for you.  Anyways, for the journey, I pulled out this kimono I picked up a while back.  I love the modern geometric print on this kimono.  The hairstyle is new from kisetsu available at Sanarae along with the hair ornaments I am wearing today.   Check out my glittery stars and moon on my face.  These are gacha appliers from Livia.

Dreaming Thicket released a new sari at Genre.  As I have mentioned before, Dreaming Thicket is one of the four new brands that split from Anachron recently.  This brand is very promising and so far I am loving the releases under the new brand.  The sari I am wearing today is an exclusive at Genre.  It’s available in various colors, but lately I have been drawn to red hues.  Check out my make up today.  They are also new from Arte.  Overall I went with red and golden tones for my look today, but my ring stands out.  This beautiful cocktail ring is from Zuri Jewelry.  I couldn’t resist.  🙂

This is a recreation of an old post I did years ago back in July 2010 titled “Princess of Arabia.”  The look has been updated with this beautiful new release from Tiffany Designs.  It’s an applier clothing with flexi and mesh attachments.  It’s available in various colors, but my favorite is this deep blue jewel tone.  The jewelry including the head piece is included which makes styling very easy for those who are lazy to be searching through inventory for the right jewelry and accessories.  I had quite fun recreating my own look from the past.  Perhaps I should make this a blogger challenge or make it a regular theme in my blog.  Just a thought…

[ R O L E P L A Y ] Dia de los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday where families and friends gather to remember the dead and pray for their safe spiritual journey.   Not to be confused with Halloween, Dia de los Muertos is more a day to remember the deceased.  If the pumpkin Jack O’Lantern represents Halloween, the skull symbolizes the Dia de los Muertos.  You can find this vivid skull make-up by Entice at The Makeover Room.  It’s only available as an Omega applier but most mesh heads are now Omega compatible.   The beautiful jewel tone gown is also from Entice on sale at Designer Showcase along with this gorgeous jewelry set from Moondance Boutique.
