[ S T Y L E ] Fringe & Lace

Fringe & Lace

Lately I am in a bit of a bohemian mood, so I was delighted to see this new release from Bare@Rose.  This combination of fringe vest, tiered lace top, and bell-bottom pants is just perfect to be worn together or separately.   The set actually comes with two vests in different colors, three tops and two pair of pants.  It also comes with accessories and boots.  I am just wearing the bracelets today and added bohemian drop earrings from Kunglers and necklace from Maxi Gossamer.  The boots are old from Venus Shoes.  I kept my make up simple with single black eyeliner and dash of red lipstick.  The cute hairstyle is new from dafnis.  I love it~

May The Force Be With You!

May The Force Be With You
Star Wars Episode 7, I finally made it to the movies to watch this.  Don’t worry this is not a spoiler. 😛  I actually watched the past episodes during Christmas to refresh my memory ahead of watching Episode 7.   I never really enjoyed Episode 1, but Padme Amidala’s wardrobe left a lasting impression.  Her outfits were out of this world, so detailed and rich.  I am sure most Star Wars fan already know, but Padme’s regal style was inspired by traditional Mongolian royalty.

May The Force Be With You
Today’s look was inspired by Padme.  I picked up this outfit from Bare@Rose and I thought it was just perfect to create the look, a traditional Mongolian royalty outfit called “Mongolian Khalkha”.  I thought I would have the most trouble finding the extravagant hairstyle, but the outfit comes with the headpiece which made the rest very easy.  I added some ethnic drop down earrings and war paintings on my face.  What do think?  Do I look like a character out of Star Wars? By the way, the photo location of today’s pictures is Byss, City of Khayal.  It’s actually a Star Wars role-playing sim, but you can still visit and look around.  It’s amazing!  Just make sure you attach your observer title so everyone knows you are just a visitor, and don’t interfere with any role-playing activities that may be ongoing.

[ b e a u t y ] Different Faces of Pulchra

I spent a couple of days trying on the new skin line from Baiastice, Pulchra, and the wide range of hair attachments which go perfectly with the hair base skin.  Sissy Pessoa offers so many make up options, I couldn’t decide which ones I liked the most.  I took some pictures to see what suits me the most.  I have come to a conclusion I like myself best with green eyes and red hair.   It’s fresh and sweet!

This is my usual look, black hair and brown eyes.  I guess it’s a bit more sophisticated and elegant.

This is me wearing the lightest skin tone available at Baiastice, porcelaine.  The eyebrows are brown but the difference from black eyebrows is hardly noticeable, just slightly lighter.  Perhaps it’s my computer monitor.  It’s a softer me.

And lastly, this is me wearing blonde hair and blue eyes. 

I took these pictures at my photostudio with Caliah’s WL preset and then added free backgrounds by Ruby Blossom, whom I found through flickr.  It took me a while to edit these and I know they are not perfect.  I am still learning and practicing photoshop so please be kind. 🙂

[ s t y l e ] Dramatic Black

Who said black was boring?  Dramatic shapes and volumes with rich flower decor make this look one of my favorites.  The starting point of today’s look is the little black dress from Kunglers, a recent addition to my wardrobe, courtesy of Barbra Kungler.  Thank you Barbra!  Accessorize to the max with a gorgeous hat, similar in texture to the dress, and statement jewelry to maximate the dramatic effect. 

Note poses used for this post are from Diesel Works’ new release, Piper Set.  These are another great set of poses.  They smooth into position so they can be used on the runway!

[ s t y l e ] Romantic Casual

[ s t y l e ] Romantic Casual

This is just a quick day time look I put together with some of my recent purchases.  Pairing up a gorgeous feminine top with your favorite pair of jeans is a universal fashion formula.  The top I picked for today’s look is part of Kunglers‘ new release, Angela Cherry Dress. The tube top is sexy yet sophisticated.  The floral print add a feminine touch.  The capri jeans are Tuli‘s latest and they are already one of my favorites.  The detail is amazing.  Slingback heals from Cherry and stylish tote bag from Bare Rose are also new additions to my inventory.  The bracelets and earrings were previous group gifts from different designers.  Thank you~  For hair and make up, I went with a casual ponytail from ETD and smoky make up from YourSkin & YourShape.  Note the skin is a new release and will be doing a separate post showing you the different make ups.
