As I said I’ll be back to cover on the Gatcha festival~ I’m hoping to gear up and start blogging again while resting a little after the mainstore cause I’m kinda drained from creating new things I won’t lie. I have so much ideas but schools just spinning out of control. So i’ll slink back into blogging, something that I love to refresh my inspiration juices a bit. As they say, oil the rusty gears! hee…
So when one thinks of Gatcha the words random, awesome and evil all comes into mind. Exact sentiments from me; this is the first Gatcha festival I’ve ever been too and I’m a big fan of those tiny ol’ machines where you just don’t know what sorta goodies you’re gonna get. The idea of that surprise in box, or prim, in our case — is just endearingly evil. You see your lindens slowly slip away but look on the bright side, you probably have tons of new goodies and even some transferable ones for friends!
This time round I spotted lots of gorgeous prints and textures running around in the gatcha prizes. So I decided to do a few looks inspired by the next season that’s slowly creeping back into LA. Sorry summer, but fall is really much much muchhhh better. When I think fall fashion, i think warm, cosy, lots of reds, browns, oranges and maybe a tinge of green leftover. I think textures and prints! Which falls together with the items from gatcha very very well.
The first, no well both looks feature my favorite piece from this year’s festival — Elate‘s Elise dress! I love the girly youthful shape with the vintage florals which are oh so so feminine. I paired them up with a tweed jacket from DP*YumYum which isn’t gatcha but so appropriate for fall; a piece you can wear over and over again and just never gets boring. The accessories in this look mostly came from Gatcha and I especially wanna give special love to PIDIDDLE‘s broach and head pieces which are so pretty! I kept spinning trying to get tanks but alas, lady luck wasn’t on my side this time round. Luckily I have plenty of accessories from my hard work~
The next look is really mostly gatcha love! The turtle sleeveless top comes from couverture, a special rare item you get if you spin endlessly like I did just to get a specific color of their tights. I loved these socks from sen*2 and scarf from LOULOU&CO. as well~ I find it so incredible how designers are putting out some very similar colors for the upcoming season which proves which colors are on the buzz lately. These adorable candy from TEKUTEKU comes with cheek blushing as well, hence the flushed look on my face. Which by the way goes incredibly well with the lip makeup of vive9‘s Po — my new favorite skin thus far from Blu! BeetleBones also finally finished her gatcha after several probing and annoying on my part. You’ll find these adorable heels over at her gatcha stand, tons of colors to get and the style is just too adorable for words!
So, as we soon say goodbye to summer; we shall all remember what a great season we had here in sl! Tons of amazing releases that just blows my mind. I’m eggcited to see what’s coming up in fall! So lets keep em coming guys!
