Modern Day Corset

Modern Day Corset

I was challenged to style a contemporary corset look with this new corset from TheAnnex.  This is actually the lucky board version for TheAnnex VIP members.  There is two lucky boards for VIP members which changes every 30 minutes.  There is a small fee L$100 to join the VIP group but if you ask me it’s well worth it!  Anyways, the first thing that came to my mind when I thought of “corset” was lingerie.  I wanted to stay away from more common looks so I pulled out a body conscious applier dress and decided to wear it with the corset.  It’s a bit unorthodox but I like the awkward mixture of medieval elements with modern silhouette.

Modern Day Corset
For accessories, I went with some statement pieces from Modern Couture, almost as flamboyant as some of the pieces a noble or a royalty may have worn in medieval times.  I added a classic handbag and shoes in matching deep red tones.  The heels are actually new from Al-Hanna.  It comes with a HUD loaded with lots of color choices.  For make up I went with smokey eyes and lips in neutral tones to balance out the eye-catching outfit, with simple long hair in ombre shades.  Anyways what do you think about my look today?  Let me know if you style this corset differently.  I would love to see what people come up with.

On a Date?

On a DateToday I am taking a bit of a break from Halloween and darkness and bring you something softer and feminine… a look perhaps appropriate for a date, a softer side of me.  The dress I am wearing is from LeeZu!   LeeZu! is currently having a sale right now, L$99 or less for everything in their store.  I picked up a few dresses I have been eyeing since I returned to SL.  This is one of them. I love how it hugs around my body!  I went simple with accessories, a gold chain necklace and a statement ring.  I know matching the shoes and the bags is a bit outdated, but why not?  The rest of the outfit is so simple.   Adding a pop of color makes it more interesting.  This is a bit random, but what do people do when they go on dates in SL?  I don’t date in SL, so just curious…

This is a look I put together over the weekend, but failed to share with you as I had issues with my desktop.  I am using my friend’s computer in the mean time.  The dress was a weekend special from Aleida, only L$60.  It comes with the lovely pair of platform pumps which I am wearing as well.  It’s a bargain I couldn’t resist.  The headpiece is an old group gift from Bliss Couture.  I tinted it a bit darker to the same tone as my clutch.  The earrings are a group gift from Bliss Couture as well.  This one is more current and still available at the store.  Make sure you have your group tag activated to receive the gift.

I am just a trainee at this point, but it’s great to be working again.  Bax Coen is one of my favorite shoe stores in SL, so I am excited to be part of the team.  To celebrate I put together a casual look wearing one of my favorites from Bax Coen.

I am loving this new group gift from Purplemoon.  The deep purple color reminds me of amethyst, a type of quartz often used in jewelry.  Amethyst is mined in Korea, which is the country I am from, thus today’s styling was inspired by my Asian roots.  The coif is one of my favorites from JE*Republic, inspired by the intricate traditional Korean hairstyles.  The eye make up I am wearing today is from Grixdale, currently available for free for Super Bargain Saturday.  Be sure to pick it up along with other free eye makeups.  Make up layers add a lot of options to your favorite skin, in my case Curio’s Jasmine.

[ s t y l e ] Feminine Tweed

[ s t y l e ] Feminine Tweed

I love my outfit today.  It’s feminine and flirty, perfect look for a date.  It started with my new tweed dress from Lark, a recent gift from Sienia Trevellion.  Thanks Sienia for the marvelous gift.  I love it!  The dress is perfect on its own.  It even comes with matching accessories such as the leather belt as well as the statement necklace, the drop  earrings and the bracelet.  I just added a bolero from Nardcotix for a bit of coverage, sheer stockings and wine color booties from Maitreya.  My skin is Kelly from YourSkin & YourShape, a new release for the Vanity Skin Fair.  The hair is from Vignette.  Note all hair styles at Vignette are now available for free.  I actually bought this one during Hair Fair, but Rachel Boram, the creator behind Vignette, has recently decided to share all her creations for free, including this hairstyle.  Thank you Rachel for your generosity.

[ p o s t c a r d ] Amethyst Fairy at Taniz

[ p o s t c a r d ] Amethyst Fairy

Taniz is a sim made of a group of islands dedicated to mystical creatures and fantasy.  Upon arrival, you will land at a skybox overlooking the sim.  Hop on the balloon to get a general tour of the sim and to reach the main area.  From the main area, you can TP using the Taniz Teleporter Bamboo to check out all the interesting places the sim has to offer: Adamanta Thol, Chinese Dream, Dragons’ Island, Hippie Beach, Lakotas’ Camp, Kameleon’s Dream, Mermaids, Pirates Port, Vampire Club, and Zeppelin.  There are lots of pose balls for couples including couple dancing, all around the sim.  Needless to say, there are some great photo locations as as well. 

While exploring, I had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners of the sim, Unkyie Jewell.  Unkyie says they hold themed parties and events at the sim.  I can’t wait to attend one!
