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 ] 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?

Today I am wearing another amazing creation by Jare Capalini from AU V, a new addition to his upcoming Spring 2009 release to be revealed in May.  While most designers are finding inspiration in flowers, butterflies, and bright colors which are very typical of Spring, Jare’s Spring collection is like no other.  He uses neutral colors, mainly black, grey and whites to create some avant garde pieces.  Thank God we are not constrained by weather in SL.  

To complete today’s look I added a wide belt from Style Starts Here and lace up boots from Royal Blue.  I added no other accessories as I felt the clothes made a statement on its own with the exception of my clutch, beautifully embellished with jewels, from Bianca Foulon.

My hair and make up I kept it very high fashion.  The hair is from VintageWear, best place for high fashion hair styles you would see in fashion shows.  The skin I am wearing today is from Kira Ahn.  I fell in love with her Asian skin line, Kim.  I ended up buying all three fatpacks.  After all, I am Asian but own very little Asian skins in my inventory.  I added dramatic lashes from Glow Studio.  These are gifts available at the store.  Glow Studio carries some of the most interesting lashes in the grid, perfect for those beauty shots one would see in a high fashion magazine spread.

[ s t y l e ] Business Casual

Business Casual

Today I decided to bring a bit of my RL work wardrobe to SL.  I work for an extremely conservative financial institution, where a navy blue, grey or black suit and pumps are the usual attire for the staff.  I am a bit unorthodox and thankfully management has accepted my unconventional ways of dressing.  When I say unconventional by all means I do not mean outrageous, but I do play around with colors and accessories to make my everyday work wardrobe a bit more fun.

To create today’s look I chose a purple knit cardigan from A-Bomb and a grey bermuda shorts from Pink Outfitters.  My avatar has unrealistically long and lean legs so I am wearing purple stockings from Shiny Things.  Wearing color stockings especially with contrasting shoes and shorts chop up the legs, making you look shorter.  A more appropriate choice for RL would have been stockings in similar tones as the shorts and shoes, black or dark grey, which would give the illusion of longer legs.   

For accessories, I added a black slim belt from Artilleri for a more polished look.  The little scarf from eLDee adds a bit of feminine twist.  Silver earrings and bangle from MiamMiam are understated yet elegant.  The big birkin bag, a recreation of Hermes classic, is a gift from my friend Kazunari Mayo.  It is not available for sale but any bag in similar shape and size could be a stylish way of replacing a briefcase.  For shoes, I opted for slim ankle boots from Style Starts Here!  I bought these a while back but never really had a chance to wear them.   I love the silhouette of these boots.  I wish I had them in RL.

Hair & make-up, I am back to my short hair, this time Edie from Aden.  Make-up I am sticking to Cupcakes Lovespell line, currently on sale, buy 1 get 1 free till Valentine’s Day.  Oh I wish waited a few days before I bought them.
