falling for gatcha~

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!

my little white dresses I

I have been dying to catch up with my postings but rl has been keeping be thoroughly occupied and it’s been a whirlwind week for sure. Anywho~ Good morning!! I hope everyone’s doing fine and dandy today ^^

White has always been my favorite color, and in rl i’ve been getting comments to wear other colors aside from that — it’s like my safe color which I fall back on time and time again. So I thought why not dedicate an entire post to this favorite color of mine. So instead of the classic little black dress, I shall show you guys my little white dresses. I’ll try to keep it as wedding free as possible!

Beauty Avatar Couture recently released their new estate collection featuring a myriad of stunning pieces that are must haves in one’s sl closet. This dress in particular caught my eye. I love the structured look of it — but still maintaining it’s feminine charm with the length and bow. It’s an extremely low cut dress so instead of flashing my non existent cleavage, I’m pairing it with a textured top form Modern Gypsy. The intricate pattern on this really pops against the solid Beauty Avatar dress. I’m in loooveee with that huge flower on my head! That’s a new release from FreshTrash which recently just opened in Starlust. It’s scripted and comes in various colors to suit your look~

The next look comes closest to looking like a wedding dress — only thing is, that longer bottom isn’t a dress, it’s actually really large loose pants from Beauty Avatar. I’m rather short so this piece being unmodifiable proved a little harder to fit. This stunning dress from Lo*momo comes in 2 different skirt options and has a really adorable neckline in my opinion. I’m featuring some older LaGyo pieces which are also some of my favorites from this talented designer. Gyorgyna Larnia has been releasing one after the other of stunning jewelry — treating us fashionistas to a myriad of stunning pieces to pick from. Every time I visit, I feel like I’m in a candy store with so much choices that I really have no clue what I don’t want *giggles*

Finally, this last piece features a gorgeous dress from Meghindo‘s a store you definitely need to see if you haven’t! This dress was one of my favorites but another one that really caught my eye was the pink diamond dress which you can see nil and uma sporting. Meghindo Romano really has some interesting dresses and swim suits which are definitely worth a look! Oh! This is also my first successful attempt at prim feet~~ teehee. Just wanted to share cause I was happeh the skin tone matches!

Anywho, I hope you enjoyed my series of little white dresses. I hope to find more and feature them on pretty occasional basis since I truly love having all white looks. Makes me feel clean like a fresh bar of soap! Whoohoo~

you look like you need another drink

I lurveeeee this look! Like it’s really all I sum up from this *giggles*
Nylon Outfitters has a bunch of new releases and if you haven’t stopped by to check them out, you’re missing some really awesome stuff! I heart these gradient denim pants and just had all kinda ideas with it. I’m a big fan of jeans in rl but on sl I really seldom buy or wear them at all; because it can be hard to find one that’s interesting and different from the norm. I particularly love the smart gradient colors that still retains denim quality in this pair! Naise~

I’m also wearing a different skin from JM:Mai; this store is definitely a store you need to go to if you have a big liking for asian skins. I have had her demos in my inventory for a long long time but never really sat down to carefully picked the ones I like. Big huge thanks to GG Sideshow for reminding me about this store. I finally sat down to pick my favorites and Devon is definitely one of them! I can’t seem to take off this skin! I’m a huge skin lover and if you read my blog often you’d probably realize it from the numerous skin reviews I do — however, it’s difficult for me to find a skin that I like to wear various times, this one however will be one to stay for a while! Me <3!

My title is inspired by this shirt from BLACKNOIR and if you’re a big fan of tees and tanks with amusing messages, you’ll lurveee this store! BLACKNOIR has tons of casual goodies and most of them have really eye catching designs. I was incredibly fascinated and I think I spent quite a long time picking the items I really like. The scarf is a new release from BALACLAVA which I have blogged about before — so excited to see their new releases all the time because not only do they look great on men, we female shoppers get to jump in the bandwagon cause they fit us as well! Great fun designs always~

Another huge lurve is these boots! Yay! Big thanks to Brinksie for providing the sURL to this store cause I’ve been itching to find out where it is! I can’t believe Algernon is in the same sim as mon amie cafe since I’ve been there about a dozen times — whai do I miss great stuff like this! (lol) Love the store, they carry a 10L rainboot that is just plain adorable, go check it out!

I decided to have fun with belts since it’s rare to find awesome ones. The yellow is one from NINIKO‘s pants but the little straps allow you to wear it with other pants as well. NINIKO just recently released a series of menswear that has several awesome stuff and I’m a huge fan of Kae’s creation so you know I’m there during the opening for sure ^^ The second belt is one from reek that most of you would already have heard about from feeds. I never had the chance to wear their stuff and I’m glad I finally do because I lurveee~ Amazing belts and awesome fun tees (even a great skating rink omgah!).

The last few touches in my look includes a beautiful hat from !!WILD O that I read about in Abra’s blog. This store sells a variation of hair and gorgeous hair accessories. The bangles are dropped on me from A&A Fashion and I love how it’s incredibly versatile and can be worn with really any sorta looks — thank you! And that cigar ~ teehee… is a find I found whilst profile stalking some great tableau creators. I love how sometimes I stumble upon a place that I’d probably never ever find if it’s just through walking in sl. Lunar lounge is literally carved out of a moon up in the skies of tableau! How awesome!

So that’s it for me today — had great fun with this look and I hope you enjoyed some of these finds ^^

quickie introduction

Hello world!

I’m not a good driver in real life and I bet I’ll suck as much on second life, but what the heck… virtual collisions are better than real life ones eh? Pretty much what I’m doing now, driving into virtual territories unknown, and bound to crash once in a while.

I’m what you’d call a n00b on second life, I’ve only been on for like… less than a week. The world is big but boy… one has got to see second life to really discover the idea of width and depth; there really isn’t one –shifty eyes– I don’t despise the feeling of being new, I kinda like the feeling I get when I explore new territories.

As if there isn’t enough fashion blogs out there for second life, greedy ol’ me still makes this pathetic attempt of squeezing into the overly crowded pool. I don’t really have much plans on how this is going to go, lets just say it’s my documentation of myself in a virtual realistic world where one can look anyway one likes; or be as adventurous in fashion without having severe consequences.

I’m by no means an awesome to-die-for fashionista, nor do I have the newest fashions on second life (being new has it’s downs- eeps). But I hope whoever that reads this blog would like the things I do and come up with.

To end off —

That’s my introduction –winks
