Lost in City

Kisaragi Town is a very realistic small town modeled after a spa town in Japan.  I came across this place while browsing different destinations in Second Life.  The nostalgic environment makes a great background for pictures.  Dressed in this gorgeous outfit inspired by the majestic peacock, I submerged into my surroundings and got lost in this little town.  The outfit is an exclusive by The Annex for Pocket Gacha.

[ s t y l e ] Geometric Prints

I like playing around with patterns.  Today I chose this interesting dress with cool geometric prints from Modern Gypsy.  The shape of the dress is very retro and classic, but the geometric prints make the dress modern.  I kept accessories very feminine and sophisticated.

[ s t y l e ] STYLE – Park Gija

[ s t y l e ] STYLE - Park Gija

Today’s look was inspired by a character in a Korean drama called STYLE, currently showing on SBS TV channel in Korea.  The character Park Gija is a fashion editor of a top fashion magazine.  She is extremely stylish.  Her look is characterized by extremely well fitted, sultry yet fashionable outfits, with lots of bold accessories and too die for shoes.  Though the TV drama lacks reality, it’s quite entertaining watching all the clothes, the jewelry, the bags, the shoes, etc. in the show.

To  create the look, I chose one shoulder dress from Stylissimo, fancy shoes from Digit Darkes, bold jewelry from Kraftika and +plus, and stylish bag from Baiastice.  For hair, I had to go with my favorite short hair, which was a freebie available at the Amorepacific sim.  Unfortunately, the sim has closed down and the freebies are no longer available.  It resembles Park Gija’s hairstyle so much.  For make up, I chose a dramatic make up from [42] Skins.

[ s t y l e ] Thank You Callie!

Thank You Callie!

I am a bit late, but I still wanted to show my appreciation and express my thank you to Callie Cline.  One of my favorite items from Callie Cline is the Ally Coat Dress.  Today I chose to wear the blue with sleek black boots from Sweetest Goodbye.  Accessories were kept at a minimum with some simple earrings from ICoN.  I added a french beret from Veschi.  I am into hats these days.  The skin was a gift from YS * YS during Blogger Appreciation Week.  I am thinking of getting other make-ups.  What do you think?

[ s t y l e ] Style It! – SL Style Challenge #1

Style It! SL Fashion Challenge #1

I recently joined a new flickr group “Style It! – SL Style Challenge” by two SL style icons, Valena Glushenko and Thalia Jie.  Anyone who loves SL fashion and loves creating looks should join.  Each month, the group will have a styling challenge around one fashion item, where group members will be invited to create their own unique look using the specific fashion item of the month.  This month’s item is the diamond eye patch from Baiastice and this is my entry.

When I saw the eye-patch, I knew I wanted to go a bit avant-garde, so I chose a white jacket of Saeya Nyanda’s earlier creations, Kyoot Army’s Straight Jacket Surrealist outfit.  Worn under the jacket is a flirty strapless dress which I created by pulling together pieces from different outfits, the tube top from Artilleri’s Eva Dress and the skirt (prim and glitch pants layer) from Ibizarre’s Bolero Dress.  I added some funky chain bangles from DeLa’s giving it a bit of a rocker feel with sleek boots from Sweetest Goodbye.  The fishnet stockings add a bit of sex appeal to the whole look.  Of course, I did not forget myclutch today, Rock Clutch in Red from +plus, for a pop of color to the whole look.

I stuck with the rocker feel for hair and make-up.  You have seen me in this hair before, but I absolutely love it.  The make up is from LeLutka.  This particular one is no longer available, but any make-up with dramatic eyes would be perfect.

[ s t y l e ] Asian Couture

Asian Couture

It’s the weekend and I just got back from a full day at the spa.  I am relaxing at home watching old movies.  I started watching Hwang Jin-Yi, starring one of  the most popular Korean movie stars, Hye-kyo Song.  I have to say the movie was a bit of a disappointment but I loved watching the beautiful Korean traditional dresses which inspired me to put together this little Asian inspired outfit. 

To create the look, I mixed items from two of my favorite Korean designers in SL, Sweetest Goodbye and JE*Republic.  The top and the prim bow are part of the Oriental Dress Mir from JE*Republic.  The skirt is part of Tonight from Sweetest Goodbye.  I decided to go light with jewelry, adding just a gold bangle from +plus to the outfit.  The outfit is quite extravagant with no need of much accessories, instead I added hair accessories to my new hair from JE*Republic, Tarae III.  It’s a modern version of traditional Korean hair style.  The skin is from Sin Skins, one of the best Asian skins in SL, in my opinion.  These are on sale along with other skins for L$50 each.  Go check it out!

One last thing, part of the poses used for this post are from Dove Swanson’s Blogger Appreciation Program.  Thanks Dove for the wonderful poses.  They are truly great for blogging.  For those who do not blog, you can still get them at Dove’s store, Long Awkward Pose.

[ s t y l e ] Mannish Influence

 

Mannish Influence

I have an addictive personality.  I recently started playing Mafia Wars on Facebook, a new addiction, and hence the inspiration behind today’s outfit.  

I overdid the mannish fashion look by teaming up grey pin stripe pants from Last Call and shirt with tie from JE*Republic.  Although Last Call is no longer available, I often wear pieces from Last Call as it still is one of my favorite clothing brands in SL.  The shirt is a new release from JE*Republic.  It’s unisex and prim tie is included in the set.  I added a vest from Cupcakes and the fedora hair from TorridWear to maximize the mafioso look.  The jacket on the shoulder is a fun item I picked up from Polina Kaestner.  It’s scripted with a hold pose.  

For the rest of the outfit, I picked out more feminine options.  The red Chanel-like bag is a gift from my friend Kazunari Mayo.  Unfortunately, it is not available for sale.  The simple red pumps from Maitreya go perfectly with the bag.  For jewelry, I picked out some bold earrings from Opium Everyday and a zebra pattern bangle from +plus.

One last thing, the skin is a preview copy of Naive‘s Camille Skins.  Leah McCullough was really kind to send me some samples.  If you are looking for a more defined facial features, check them out.
