[ S T Y L E ] Monotone

Monotone

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!

[ R O L E P L A Y ] Haenyeo

Haenyeo (해녀)

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.

[ S T Y L E ] So Cozy!

So Cozy!

I am just hanging around indoors, wearing a cozy, oversized hoodie sweatshirt dress from VIPs Creation.  This is a Valentine’s special, with various color/pattern options in a HUD.  I chose polka dot for this post.  It’s playful and fun.  By the way, have you seen my pet?  This was released back in January but I just got to feature it today.  Isn’t he so cute?

Wedding Guest

Wedding Guest

I just received a wedding invitation to my cousin’s wedding in two weeks.  Korean weddings are far less formal, and most people show up in business attire since most wedding ceremonies are held during the day.  You will hardly see anyone wearing cocktail dresses or fascinators.  Some guests even show up wearing denim!  Most Korean weddings are very short.  It can be as short as 15 minutes to as long as a couple of hours.  A number of guests just show up, pay their congratulatory money, sign the guest book, and leave.  Some couples however host after-parties to celebrate with their friends after the wedding ceremony.  This is where the fun begins.  The look I am wearing is for the day time wedding ceremony: a modest pencil skirt in a fun popping color, with a feminine blouse in a neutral color to balance out the look overall.  The blouse is from BOOM.  The store is currently having a closing sale, 75% off.  Sale will end as soon as the sim is signed over so head over now and check it out!  There are a lot of cute accessories, clothes, and shoes!Wedding GuestLuxurious accessories to complement the look: a croc bag, vintage jewelry, and my new patent pumps from alaskametro<3…  These are Alaska’s first original mesh product!  The shape is so classic and a must have for any wardrobe.  It comes with a HUD for three color options: 2 solid and 1 ombre~  Ombre is actually my favorite, but I decided to go with a solid color today.   Have you noticed I am wearing the same make up as my previous post?  😛  Hair makes a big difference.  This one is from Vanity Hair, a marketplace hunt item!

[ b e a u t y ] Zora

Lion Skins’ newest face, Zora, is very edgy with strong features and thick eyebrows.  If you prefer thinner plucked eyebrows, please read no further, because this skin is probably not for you.  I am, however, a big fan of thick brows, but anyone who follows my blurbs in this blog probably know that by now.  I have always been a big fan of Lion’s creative make-ups and Zora is no exception.  Zora comes with 30 different make ups to choose from.  Most of the make ups available for Zora are more appropriate for the evening or for the runway.  With heavy smokey eyes or colorful eyeshadows, these are make ups you would want to wear to make a statement and get noticed.  Available in three skin tones (pale, sunkissed, and sun), each make up set contains two different versions, hair base with blonde hair and no hairbase.   I hope Lion releases a dark hair version too. 🙂  Pls see below some of my favorite make ups for the Zora line.

By the way, Lion just showed me a preview of what’s coming next at Lion Skins, and it’s amazingly fun!  I can’t tell you much about it now, but I am sure you won’t be disappointed.
