Fashion Dazzle has gone through some changes for 2018.  It’s been rebranded as “Dazzle” and relocated to a new and improved location.  The event starts the year with a new theme, “Angels in Golden Clouds”.   One of my top picks from the event is this exquisite gown by AvaGirl… a glittery mermaid gown with wispy feather fish tail, worn with a lace & feather shawl.  If you prefer simpler silhouettes, the gown can be worn without the fish tail.  The shawl is also versatile and can be worn separately.  The feather details on each shoulder can be removed and styled differently according to one’s mood.  I personally prefer as is with all the attachments.  You should see how gently the feather attachments move in-world.  It’s just beautiful.

[ S T Y L E ] Christmas Is Coming!

Xmas Is Coming!

After a few days of struggle, I managed to log back on to SL just in time for all the Christmas events.  First off, Fashion Dazzle is back this month with Christmas specials.  This beautiful gown from Mariposa is just perfect for the holidays.  It’s an exclusive for Fashion Dazzle.  You need to have advanced lighting mode on to see the iridescent sparkle of the dress.  Add a body light for maximum impact, and the dress will shine beautifully with the light.  The jewelry I am wearing is from Moondance Boutique.  Moondance Boutique is currently holding an advent calendar for its group members.  There is a L$50 fee to join but it’s worth it!  Check out the detail of the jewelry.  They come with a HUD so you can personalize to your liking.  The ponytail is a new release from Monso for Fameshed.  Monso’s black hair color range is one of my favorites… It’s so close to my RL hair color.  The eyes I am wearing today resemble my RL eyes as well.  These are new from Arte for The Chapter Four.  Love it!

[ S T Y L E ] Flowers & Studs

Flowers & Studs

I am loving this leather jacket embellished with flower embroidery and studs.  The jacket is part of dafnis’ exclusive sale item at .::WoW Skins::. and Shopping District Cart Sale during the month of December.  The item is located in a cart in front of dafnis satellite store at Wow Skins sim.  The top and leather pants worn above are also included in the outfit.  All three pieces come with a HUD pre-loaded with various color options.  There is also mini hunt so make sure you pick it up.  It’s a snowflake and fairly easy to find.

By the way, apologies for those you have read this post earlier.  There was some misleading information on the outfit I am wearing.   Thank you Jacob for bringing it to my attention.

[ S T Y L E ] Namaku IX

Namaku

I think I am finally satisfied with my Catwa shape.  After long hours of tweaking and trying different skins and Catwa heads, I feel like myself in this shape and skin.  I am not wearing any make up today so you can see how I look like with no make up!  It’s certainly prettier than my RL self with no make up. 😛  Anyways, today’s look is the free group gift version of a look I wore about one month ago from Artizana.  The turtle neck cropped sweater and baggy pants combo can be worn separately and I am sure anyone can get good use out of them.  There is a L$100 fee to join the group.   The feather jewelry set is from Nord Embel’Lys.  It’s an old release but it’s one of my favorites.  The hair style is new from Alli&Ali.  It looks best with a hair base.  I am wearing one from Alli&Ali.

[ S T Y L E ] Tramore Bay

Tramore Bay

I was unable to attend Luxe Paris fashion show “Eclat Des Fetes” this past weekend. I was so sad to have missed it.  I heard it was a great success, full of amazing special effects and lots of elegance.  At least I have some of the outfits from the fashion show as consolation, and I can share them with you in my blog.  The gown I am wearing is one of the new releases revealed at the show.  The shape is so flattering.  I love it!  I styled it with my new pearls from Moondance Boutique.  However, the gown on its own is fancy enough to be worn with no jewelry.  For a more stylish modern look, add some simple golden jewelry instead.  By the way, if you are interested in viewing some pictures from the  fashion show, check out Mika Palmyra’s facebook post.
