[ B E A U T Y ] JE*REPUBLIC Is Back!


My dear friend Jungeun Vella from JE*REPUBLIC is back with Catwa skin appliers!  JE*REPUBLIC was one of my favorite hair stores back in the days.  Jungeun has been off the grid for sometime and is slowly making a come back with a small selection of Catwa skin appliers.  It’s still early stages but it looks so promising.  At the moment, the skins are not base skins, i.e. the skins have default make up on it.  Therefore, some make up appliers may not work well with the skin.  Hopefully, she will be releasing some bare natural skins.   Also, the body appliers offered for now is limited to Maitreya and Belleza.  She is currently offering the skin applier I am wearing today as a group gift at her store.  There is a L$50 fee to join.  You can purchase the body applier separately at the store.

Check out this gorgeous hair from D!va.  This is an instore group gift to celebrate 15000+ group members.  You need to activate your group tag and click on the panel at the store.  There is no cost to join the group and on the second floor you can find past group only gifts.  Today’s outfit was based on my new hair.  The long messy side ponytail is quite girly so went for a puffy skirt.  The skirt is actually part of a dress from Shush currently on sale for L$50.  I pulled out a simple top, also part of another outfit.  This one is from Last Call, no longer available.  Last Call is a brand I cherish and still wear.  Despite the outfits being 4-5 years old, they are still very current.  I would think of them as classic pieces.

Golden Belle

Today’s outfit was a bargain.  The gown I am wearing is a Sixty Linden Weekends special from Eluzion, a new store to me.  The vintage earrings are also a Sixty Linden Weekends item from Hatpins.  I am loving good bargains these days.  There so many sales and events.  It’s hard to keep track.  Check out the Penned Down The Rumor.  The writers of this website are dedicated to keep you up with all the weekly and special sales in the grid.  It’s a good reference source for those who love bargain shopping like me.

I am loving this new group gift from Purplemoon.  The deep purple color reminds me of amethyst, a type of quartz often used in jewelry.  Amethyst is mined in Korea, which is the country I am from, thus today’s styling was inspired by my Asian roots.  The coif is one of my favorites from JE*Republic, inspired by the intricate traditional Korean hairstyles.  The eye make up I am wearing today is from Grixdale, currently available for free for Super Bargain Saturday.  Be sure to pick it up along with other free eye makeups.  Make up layers add a lot of options to your favorite skin, in my case Curio’s Jasmine.

[ s t y l e ] City Chic

I am back from my business trip in RL and back to my comfortable home in Seoul.  The weather is quite cold, and with G20 Summit, the traffic is quite terrible too, giving me no motivation to go out of my home if possible.  This is a look I put together just before my business trip but forgot to share.  It started off with my new leggings from JE*Republic.  They are hip and cool.  I would love to have a pair like these in RL.  Thank you Jungeun for the gift!!!

[ s t y l e ] Un Robe

I have been having issues with SL for sometime, unable to log in for weeks.  Everythings seems to have normalized and managed to take some pictures today.  I missed out of LeeZu’s fashion show, but still got hold of LeeZu’s newest release, Un Robe.  I love it!   This colorful dress is all about volume, a nice break away from my boring knits and coats in RL.  It’s getting really cold in Seoul.  We had -1°C last week!
