edging up Church of Luxe

I’m sure some of you have heard about the Church of Luxe sale that’s going on right now — all items (except the new haute bunny ears which are to die for!) are currently going for a mere 50L with fatpacks priced at 250L. Yes, this includes jackets, vests, tunics and of course CoL’s well known dresses. So why not hop on over and take a great look before some of this items get retired after the sale?

Church of Luxe to me has been a brand i associate with feminine prints, a semi vintage appeal and just overall girly dresses that I heart and love. I remember heading over to her store when I was still a sl newbie and just fell in love in all the clothes which kept very close to rl styles. So I decided to come up with a few looks from my favorite pieces from CoL’s massive choices and my intention was to edge up most of the looks, to showcase how versatile these pieces are.

edging up Church of Luxe I

The first look is centered around CoL’s lovely Sam Vest and Gretchen dress in which I turned into a simple cami. I felt very western inspired in this wear and just adore this huge hair by Hair OH! Hair OH has recently opened a new mainstore and carries new hair styles and even lashes so I advise you to drop over and take a lookie around~

The next look comes from Igraine in Yellow; I love how this looks like a usual collared shirt but with the prim turns into a long tunic~ You could pair this with pretty much anything! But I added colored tights to really amph the look up. The hair here is yet another from Hair OH, featuring her latest “oh my boy” hair.

Not only is this Jenna dress one of my fav pieces from CoL, i’ve also been meaning to cover this cardigan from barbee for ages now! I absolutely love the loose draping, the overall casual worn in look of the cardi. I changed the usual Jenna dress into a semi tight tunic, which I thought worked really well into this look.

Finally, I have this look which is a lil more youthful. I love this Sam vest, it works well in all sortsa looks and a classic piece you should have. In the last 2 looks I’m sporting the latest hair from DP*YumYum which I have been seeing soooo many people sporting. This just means how adorable and awesome these hair are~

Oh! And on another note, the skins I’m wearing in all 4 looks come from fashionably dead! Toast Bard has released a bunch of new make ups and what I love most about these skins are the vivid red lips, some glossy and some matte. Something I crossed my fingers for since the first release of her skins — more red lipstick! So whoohoo! I’m sure you fd skin fans would find at least one makeup that calls out to you because there are just too many to choose from!

So! Now time for me to turn in, I hope you guys enjoyed these~

I’ve been feeling rather uninspired lately… and I haven’t been finishing the ideas I had in mind simply because I feel like I can’t *_* sobs. I think mayhaps I have lost my creative juices somewhere? This look features something I initially wanted to do a series of. I’ve been getting awesome tee shirts from various places and I wanted to show case all of their gorgeousness in several looks, but that didn’t seem to work out and I’m left with one 😦
I hope you guys still like this one though and I hope I get hit in the head and get inspired soonish because this mind block is making me a tad bit cranky~

So! This look features this gorgeous tee from barbee. This store has some really inspiring art work that you guys should go check out; most of the art is brought into the fashion world as they are made into t-shirts like the one I’m wearing. I personally bought a few but this was one of my favorites. T-shirts in sl are such a staple and great quality ones can be hard to find, something like this can be worn almost anywhere in sl — for a lag free time during a hunt or an event, a quality tee just does wonders. I paired it up with this gorgeous skirt from Ume Mode that was initially a dress, but it allows you to edit and pull down into a ethnic printed skirt too.

I’m wearing a different skin today, thinking it’s time to try out something else. Kaethe Dyrssen from *Leafy brought me to this store and I’m truly thankful to find Lara Skin‘s gorgeous skin called Daisy. I particularly love this makeup option cause of its peachy lip which is not apparent in any other makeup option. Kaethe also has a bunch of new poses out in her store which you guys should go check out cause they are AWESOMEZ *winks*

This hair comes from a store I also recently just found called Zero Style. It’s not a new brand and many of you might have heard of it before — but I lurve the quality of their hair. Every strand is so glossed and shiny as if it’s been through a good dose of hair conditioner. Very healthy and hair lovers out there who have never been here — NEED to go!

Apologies once again for my very uninspired moment, who knows, I might just log on and get inspired or I might not in the next week or so 😦 *crosses my fingers* See you guys soon!
