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 dose of beetlebones

*waveness* I just arrived back in LA and I’m having a bad evil jetlag…so i’m a tad bit buzzed and I might make a lil spelling error or mistakes along this post. In fact I just noticed a picture editing error that I wanna smack myself for 😦 pooness!!

Anywho! I’m missing my sister so much from all the way here in Los Angeles as she’s slaving away in Asia teehee… I do have to congratulate her on a successful collection yet again ❤ Suetabulous Yootz from Beetle Bones finally released her 2nd collection which she deems city chic ~ dedicating to her missed life in LA. I must say the pieces reflect a lot of our favorite things whilst shopping and living in Los Angeles. A lot of the clothes are stylish on their own but also serve as great layering pieces, which fits the unpredictable weather here, sometimes it’s just blazing hot like vegas and sometimes it’s waaayy too cold, so layers serve for easy changes throughout the day.

I decided to take some essential pieces from Beetle Bones‘ city chic collection and layered it with different pieces from other designers to show off this lines great versatility! I also made sure each look features a different color of Suetabulous adorable “I Skinned an Ostrich Bag” (lols at the name). This bag has a cute hand drawn textures which shows Sue’s great improvement since her first line, and even has a small lil sculpted bone as a brand keychain. I love her attention to detail and this bag really is one to keep as it goes well with any look.

The first look I kept simple and easy, something casual that works for daily wear where you don’t want to fuss around a lot. Using Beetle Bones’ Skinny Lowriser Jeans and Laboheme top, I paired it with Gigi Couture‘s adorable plaid sweater. I love these jeans from Beetle Bones as her attention to details yet again show in the backpockets where we see a lil sewn in bone.

Next up is a look I love and hearts! I took Sue’s adorable Michelle dress which features a high pencil skirt and a detailed corseted top — the details on the top of this dress is so cute, but I wanted to make this more unpredictable by layering it with her jailbird sweater and Madsy’s xoxo Cardigan. I have featured Madsy in my early posts but I’d just like to highlight what an incredibly amazing new and upcoming brand! I love her originality in all her pieces and they really are must haves! This look is more feminine which works well if you’re going out on a date of some sorts or days when you just wish to look your lady like best!

Finally, the last look is something more spunky and fun, with bright colors and cute hair, this look is great for a fun day out! Using this Jailbird sweater yet again, I loveeee this piece and is definitely my favorite from Sue’s collection. I worked it with her skinny jeans again but in a different shade, and layered this with Pink OutfittersEsme Sweater Vest which makes for a cool look.

my dose of beetlebones IV

I featured JUNWAVE hair in all 3 looks and if you guys haven’t drop on down to buy some of JUNWAVE’s new hair… you’re missing out on some really awesome styles! I ❤ this brand so much when it comes to hair, and it’s hard to keep myself away from the store… I just keep coming back every time there’s a new release *sniffles for wallet*

So! I hope you guys drop on by to Beetle Bones and check out Suetabulous Yootz’s city chic collection! Gotta love all the hand-drawn goodness and her hard work is really paying off as I see her improve and grow ❤
