[ R O L E P L A Y ] Exotic Carnation

Carnation Dream

It’s great blogging while enjoying the sun and sipping a glass of chilled white wine.  Life is good and I wish I could feel this relaxed back at home.  I am enjoying the relaxed small village life in Spain… no rat race, no hurries, no traffic…. so quiet and relaxed.  It’s like time does not exist here.  Anyways, today I bring you my inner exotic dancing spirit.  I say inner because this look is definitely not something I would wear around the grid perhaps in the privacy of my bedroom.  Check out the Catwa mesh head applier I am wearing today.  It’s free gift from Boataom.  You would need to purchase body mesh applier separately for a perfect match.

[ s t y l e ] Rocker Princess

Sometimes I like to mix & match items of clothing that may seem like an oxymoron, of contrasting styles.  It makes dressing up much more fun.  Mix a tutu skirt with a studded leather jacket, and be a rocker princess for the day.  Make sure the leather jacket is tight fitting so it enhances the volume of the skirt.

Fann-tastic Look of The Day – Colorful Summer

Fann-tastic Look of The Day - Colorful Summer

I wanted to dress something more colorful today and after searching through my inventory, I finally put together today’s look. I always love clothings made of sheer chiffon, this blouse from Pink Outfitters immediately caught my attention as I simply love clothings with either frills or ribbons. I decided to match with Calypso Jungle skirt from Mimikri and in order not to look so plain, I add on a belt from MichaMi‘s Lulu outfit which comes in various layers. Hair is one of the new release from Aden. This pair of flats from Phoenix Rising is the latest new product and comes in 3 styles with various colors options. I am very pleased with this look as this is something I definitely love and will wear in RL except that I don’t really like to wear flats in RL.

[ s t y l e ] A Little Bit of Punk

A Little Bit of Punk

 

Today I decided to spice things up a bit, adding a bit of punk to my daily look.  The outfit started with my new hair from Novocaine, currently on sale for L$50 for one color pack of 3 colors over at Truth.  I picked up a few including this one, Caelyn, a punk rocker style which is a nice addition to my long inventory of hair.  Thrown on your favorite sexy top like this one from Lookr with your favorite pair of pants, add a eye-catching clutch and a pair of sexy gloves, and you are ready to rock the town.

[ s t y l e ] I Will Miss You Neferia

I Will Miss U Neferia

I was in shock when I found out Neferia decided to close her shops, because not too long ago I was chatting with her about how much I liked her new collection for L’Abel.  Thanks to Jhuzen Ketsugo, we can still find some of Neferia’s creations at Retrology.  I really wish Neferia best of luck and I pray she returns to Second Life soon. 

Picking out my favorite outfit from Ivalde or L’Abel was difficult.  I have so many of Neferia’s creations.  To make things easier, I decided to show you one of her latest, Aline Gold Dress, part of her new Spring line for L’Abel.  There are no words to describe this delicate and feminine dress.  Feathers, ribbons, and black silky gloves add just the glam I need to feel beautiful. 

Neferia often styled her creations with extravagant hats, so I decided to go with House Of Heart’s Birdie for hair.  Classic make-up reminiscent of old Hollywood glam is from Bebae.  I added lashes from Glow Studio for a bit more drama. Simple black pearl earrings and ribbon bag finish today’s Audrey Hepburn like look.

[ 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.
