I have had this kimono from Bare@Rose for a while, but never got around to showing it off.  Blogging these days is so focused on new items.  I have also fallen to the trend and have been chasing after blogging requirements and deadlines to meet.  It’s more than fair to meet designer/brand requirement especially if you they supply with items for free.  Anyways, today I wanted to take a bit of a break and dig in my inventory for something old but still great.  The hair accessories are new though, from kisetsu.

[ S T Y L E ] Lost in City

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.

Niterose is another of my picks at Dazzle.  You have probably seen this mesh gown shape before but PaperMoon has spiced it up with rose decorations and flexi skirt additions creating beautiful movement.  The four roses on my hair are included.  I have rearranged them to fit my hairstyle.   The rose jewelry is from IT!  It’s an old release but I thought it went beautifully with this gown.

I.M. Collections’ exclusive for Dazzle is one of my favorites.  The glitter sweater over lacy mini dress is really cute and girly.  You could dress it up with heels but I was in the mood for a more casual look.

I got  a bit bored with my Catwa look so I am back with my LeLutka.  I wanted to change the overall look too and decided to feature a contemporary urban outfit.  The knotted cropped t-shirt and sweatpants are from monaLisa, a new product sponsor I look forward featuring in my blog on a regular basis.  Fashion has evolved so much.  Who would have thought walking around in heels and sweatpants would be fashionable?  Even mixing formal jewelry with streetwear…  it seems like everything goes today.  There no norms to fashion, just your attitude and confidence.  🙂

I never thought December would be such a busy month.  I have been consumed with so much work.  Anyways, this is a quick post featuring some more exclusives for Fashion Dazzle.  The tweed suit is from I.M Collection.  The jacket and skirt can be worn separately.  The fur stole is also an exclusive at Fashion Dazzle from Prism Designs.  The necklace is another advent gift from Moondance Boutique.  So far I am loving the gifts available…  The make up is also new.  This one is from Livia.  As you can see it works well with monolids, so I couldn’t be more happy.  🙂

[ S T Y L E ] Candy Cane Elegance

Candy Cane Elegance

This red gown from Virtual Diva Couture is one of my favorite pieces I have seen this season.  It’s absolutely stunning!  Style it with classic pearls for a perfect formal look for the holidays.  Mine are from Zuri Jewelry, an old release but a classic piece I wear quite often.  The dress has a lot of volume, so I pulled my hair in a simple updo with some fun make up to finish up the look.
