[ 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.

[ s t y l e ] Summer Snow

[ s t y l e ] Summer Blues

“It’s summer snow in the deep blue sea.”

I was listening to Sissel – Summer Snow while I put together today’s fairy-like outfit.  Leda Dress from This is a Fawn has been blogged quite a bit lately, but I love the delicate look of this dress and decided to give it my own spin to create the perfect fairy like dress for these hot summer days.  The dress is supposed to be worn as a baby doll dress, but I pulled the prim skirt lower to by waistline and added some high collar lacy blouse under the dress.  Feminine hair updo and ballet flats enhances the delicate nature of this look.

Note today’s skin is a beta version of CHAI SKINS’ upcoming new skin line NOVA.  I was lucky to be chosen as one of the 40 beta testers.  Overall I am very happy with the skin and can’t wait to see the end result as well as the make up options available. 

One last thing, the poses used for this blog post are from my old time favorite animation store, Reel Expression.  Reel Expression kick off its 5 year anniversary with a 25% storewide sale at 8pm on July 11th.  The sale will last till July 25th.  Take advantage of the sale to pick up some of the best poses in SL.  Happy 5th Anniversary!

[ s t y l e ] African Mood

African Mood

Spring/Summer 2009, African inspired patterns are in vogue.  Although stark white and colonial khaki ruled the RL runways, I chose a more colorful option, Lush from Modern Gypsy.  The shape is extremely flattering, feminine yet modern.  The pattern is bold and wild so I kept accessories quite simple.  I could have chosen some ethnic pieces, but went with simpler choices, black pearl earrings from Second Mirage (currently closed but available in Xstreet SL) and bangles from Zaara.  I did not want to over play the African ethnic theme.  Over-doing it can turn the whole look into a costume.  The yellow clutch is a lucky chair prize from Bare Rose Haute Couture.  I chose yellow instead of the more obvious choices, black or red, because I think too much color matching can be boring and dowdy.  The shoes are from ETD, one of my favorite styles for spring/summer. 

Such an eye-catching dress deserves dramatic make-up and hair.  The hair is from a new store, Labieja, which I read about on Emi’s blog.  I love this store.  The choices are so fashionable!  Be sure to check it out if you like haute couture look right out of a glossy high fashion magazine or runway.  The skin is one of my all-time favorites from LF CHAI.  This is from Launa’s previous line, which you can find at her outlet store, Chai Skins Outlet.
