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~

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.

my dose of beetlebones I

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.

my dose of beetlebones II

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!

my dose of beetlebones III

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

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 ❤

different attitudes

I couldn’t keep away for long with all the stuff I’ve been dying to blog about! Royal Blue, Madsy and Viva La Glam are some stores that have been super eggciting (word taken from the awesome modd.G hee) and had amazing releases. With the sexy hues from these designers, I decided to showcase a more edgy and different side of my style. The skin that I went for to add an edge is non other than my latest skin love vive9! Miranda is by far my favorite from BluAbyss, there’s a glow in this skin that I’ve never quite find in any other skin — I couldn’t resist but get Miranda in Tea which has the most amazing tan I’ve seen in sl. I completely love vive9’s doll like faces, so delicate and petite. Tanned skins usually have an affect of being very mature and strong, I think the faces of vive9 keeps them fresh and extremely modern chic.

So! On to the amazing brands I’ve been harping about. Royal Blue is a store that has extremely inspiring ideas and Marni Grut is just a bubble of creativity! I love The Corporate Pow Wow Jacket that has been appearing all over the feeds, but I decided to feature some of the other great pieces in her collection such as this Meshington Body Suit that has transparent bits on the side, sooo sexy. I also love this pair of Serouse Bow Times Trousers that’s so unique and special. A must for ones inventory. I paired the pieces with a Jacket from Madsy. Madsy is a little store I found whilst roaming about Starlust’s new Elliott sim — gotta love the amazing textures there! This jacket however is just plain awesomesauceness! The sculpt is brilliant and so is the amazing hand drawn textures. Madsy is definitely a store to look out for~

The next look features pieces from Viva La Glam a store that Tomoyo Brietman kindly showed me. I love the deep colors they have there and wowww the gloves come in a whole fatpack for such a reasonable price! Gloves are staples in inventories and I have a soft weak spot for them. I paired this Fuschia Halcyon Dress with their Y-Strap Layered Tank. I particularly loveee the cut of this tank, so versatile and just incredibly modern — rather futuristic which carries along all the other pieces. Marni Grut is giving out these amazing tights for freeee~ I decided to put a back shot to show the intricate zipper design of these tights. They come in a myriad of colors so thanks to Marni’s generosity we’ve got some realllly amazing tights to add to our inventory.

I love the two looks here and they’re definitely very different from the usual looks I do… I think it shows a edgier side of me. Which I’ve also realized about people, some people are two faced and in a virtual community like sl, it’s hard not to meet them. During my time in sl, I’ve witnessed a few ugly events and I’d just like to say attitudes people, attitudes… please keep them in check thank you ~ we’re all people too. (And I’ll try to keep mine in check as well ^^ hee)
