The Spoonful of Sugar event opened doors recently. As many of you know, the Spoonful of Sugar is a charity event for Doctors Without Borders. Many designers are participating part of their proceeds to the cause. This cute country girl overall look is Anachron’s 100% donation item for the event. It’s so adorable! Love it~
After a long hiatus, Ignition Art! is back with this sexy halter neck mini dress available at the XXX Event. I am wearing a funky fur coat from David Heather over the dress with my favorite thigh high boots from Venus Shoes. This is a great look for a night out with the girls… so sexy, so glam!
I went for a bit of pre-season shopping for the fall at Free Dove. As many of you know Free Dove is a great place to pick up free designer items. New items get added on a monthly basis and there is a mini-hunt each month featuring 3 different designers each month. Most of the items I am wearing today is from Free Dove. I recently became one of the official bloggers for Free Dove so I will try my best to feature a monthly styling corner with Free Dove items, just some suggestions for those fashionistas working with a tight budget.
This new sari from Anachron is just stunning! The colors and patterns are so beautiful. Looking to add some exotic ethnic pieces to your wardrobe? Check out Enchantment, themed “Arabian Nights”. You will find not only this new release from Anachron but many more designs from other designers as well.
My blogging schedule is a bit off as I had to travel a long way to see my family in Spain for the summer. I have been struggling with major jet lag but I am finally adjusting a bit after two days… so back to blogging! Lately I have been wearing a lot of black & white. It’s so easy to mix and match, not much color coordination needed. If you are anything like me who owns a lot of black clothes and accessories, make sure you check out Fashion Dazzle this month. As I have mentioned in my previous post, lots of designers are featuring exclusive items for this month’s theme, “Black & White”… perfect additions to any wardrobe. The dress I am wearing is from a new to me designer, “Graffitiwear”. The dress comes with a HUD loaded up with a variety of black & white textures. I went a bit more glam rocker feel with my new choker from LePunk and laced up heels from Legendaire. One last thing, I am absolutely loving this new skin from alaskametro<3 available at The Mesh Addicts Fair. This one is a keeper! Check out the daytime make-up applier while you are there… gorgeous subtle make-up for any occasion. Love it!
Haenyeo (해녀) or sea women are female divers in Jeju Island in Korea. Jeju Island is the largest island off the coast of the Korean peninsula known for its mild climate even in winter, a popular tourist destination for Koreans. Haenyeos are known to drive without air tanks. Their diving gear consist of a wetsuit, goggles, flippers, gloves, chest weights, L-shaped weeding hoe, and a net tied to a flotation device. They harvest abalone, octopus, sea urchins, oysters, etc. It is a profession which is declining with modernization but still highly respected. My look today is not a perfect recreation of haenyeo but when I saw this wetsuit from Bare@Rose I knew I wanted to dedicate my post to them.

I took a quick trip down Pino-Zashiki in my new yukata from Anachron. It’s a gacha rare item which will be available at The Gacha Garden starting August 1st. I don’t think I have featured Japanese kimonos or yukatas before although I own my fair share. I accessorized with a few other older gacha items to create my look today. Hope you like it!
