This new hairstyle from Monso is so cute! As many of you know I am a big fan of Monso but this messy short hairstyle inspired by Taeyeon from Girls’ Generation is so far my favorite. For my outfit today, I went with a bit of a chill casual look from Legendaire worn with a leather jacket from Coco.
Little black dress is a fashion staple and a must have in anyone’s wardrobe. It’s such a versatile item to have in one’s wardrobe. It can be dressed up or dressed down, create different looks with different accessories. I went with classic elegant look with a bit of sexy twist today. As promised, I am trying to show off more affordable looks in my blog for those fashionistas with tight budget. This black dress is free, available at Legendaire. Legendaire offers very affordable looks. Check out their outlet and join their group for an extensive range of group gifts!
When I first saw LSR’s new release “Sexy Nadia”, I knew I wanted to draw inspirations from “Tajja” to create my look today. “Tajja” is a Korean slang term for professional gambling. It is also the title to a manga about gambling, deceit, and greed, which was later made to a movie as well as a TV series. My look today was inspired by one of the characters in “Tajja”: Madame Jung, a very skillful card player, extremely sexy and business savvy. She wore lots of body conscious dresses, showing off her curves. However, she always carried herself with a lot of confidence and elegance. I don’t know if I have done justice to Madame Jung, but hope you like the look!
Some of my friends suggested I feature more work appropriate conservative outfits in my blog, mainly because many of them felt there was a niche market/demand for these types of clothes. The SL fashion market is inundated with formal gowns, fantasy outfits, sexy attire, goth, even plenty of casual clothes but there are not that many variety of conservative business attire. The response I got to my Monday work attire was quite positive so I decided to take my friends’ advice and feature another work appropriate outfit. Today’s outfit is an example of a versatile look good for the office during the day into an after work drinks/dinner appointment in the evening. The length of the skirt is modest, the blouse shows very little skin, and the color palette is very neutral. However, the outfit is stylish enough to take you into the evening. During the day, one would probably carry a bigger bag, a briefcase perhaps. I am carrying a clutch, my after-work drinks look. 🙂
If yesterday I was a pirate wench, today’s outfit is a modern interpretation inspired by my outfit yesterday. Today I am wearing a dress with strap details resembling the corset ties of the skirt I was wearing yesterday. This sexy number is from TheBeautifulOnes. I added a furry bolero jacket from Lelutka for warmth. It’s a group gift for Christmas at their store. The silhouette of the jacket resembles the shape of the Victorian blouse. The neckline felt a bit bare, so I added a statement necklace from Modern Couture. For hairstyle, I chose a shaggy short hair from Mina. Long hair would hide my neck… and you know in modeling it’s all about elongating your neck!
Instead of thigh high boots, today I chose to wear knee high boots keeping in mind the length of dress I am wearing today. The boots are new from Bax Coen. I have been waiting forever for a new release and here it is. It was worth the wait because it’s just perfect. It fits so nicely, and take a look at the details on the back, so meticulously done. The zipper, heels, sole, etc. can be customized via HUD which is always a plus. It also comes with optional walking sounds.
Instead of a sword, I am carrying a clutch… A gun would have been a more appropriate replacement for a sword but I was visiting the Basilica and weapons just didn’t seem right. Have you been to this beautiful place? Everything is so serene and calm. I love it there… a great place to visit and wander around. Guided tours are available too for those who prefer that. I personally like to explore by myself.
Someone asked me what is your style and I couldn’t pick a word or phrase to describe my style. I like to mix different trends and colors. I like to experiment. It’s the way I dress in RL too. My corporate job narrows my options during the week, so when I am not working I like to take risks and be creative. Today’s a good example of my mix-match style, a bit retro, a bit romantic, a bit boho, a bit glam, a bit casual… Perhaps I am a just a confused soul! 🙂 The crochet tights were the starting point to my look today. These are new from alaskametro<3, available at this month’s anyBODY. They are only L$25 per color, available in 6 gorgeous fall colors. I am wearing khaki today. Just like any other items from alaskametro<3, appliers for mesh bodies and regular clothing layers for classic avatars are included. You can wear them as leggings, footless. I love having so many options, makes dressing much more fun~ The booties are also fairly new from Essenz. I picked them up at My Attic. I can’t remember what my classic avatar face looks like anymore. I have not taken off my mesh head for such a long time. I am just hooked. I love being able to play around with different make up appliers to create a different look. I am so tempted at trying to make my own make up appliers… Perhaps I will give it a go this weekend. The eyeliner I am wearing today is from SlackGirl. My hairstylist today is Pepe Hair. This style is actually available for free at their main store. It comes with an HUD to change the color of the hair accessories. I quite like the texture for dark brunettes so I am sure I will be shopping here more often. Anyways, hope everyone is kicking off their weekend with fun events! I have a wedding coming up so better go try some outfits in RL. Ciao! – CREDITS –
