red balloon

Yayyyeee~~ Didn’t expect me back so soonnn?? Hee… I’ve been playing about with my inventory a lot since I’ve finally gotten nearly everything sorted out by brand whoohoo! Serves for easy land marking purposes! So, I have no clue why I named this red balloon, but I was playing word association in my own dorky lil mind and thought of that when I looked at those fabulous glasses!

I finally got a chance to use my Paper Couture huge flower yay!! And this adorable Whippet&Buck tailored shorts that I lurve lurve. Everything else is really a big huge random mix of tid bits and goodies. I love the little bow necklace from fabulous which I’m sure tons of you have been to before! Dango is one of the most amazing creator within second life and I’m sure many fashionistas agree. She has 2 new hair releases in DEJAVU that I would probably show case soon and that everyone should go mad rush in and get *winks*

Keeping this short and sweet! Hope you like!
(I’m utterly amused by the poses I picked but they are fabbb~)

twee-licious

Hellooooosss! Chance has been awesomest by teaching me this new trick on photoshop — I’m trying it out to see how the effect looks and so far I really like it. It kinda makes the edges have a lil line so it looks like a cartoony, hand drawn feel. Another thing he told me about was this adorable little store called Twee.

I had the opportunity to meet Manatee McMillan the other day and found out that she has had her store for a while now, but took a long break only to come back with her pretty goods yet again. Her dresses are extremely young and fresh, with adorable poofy shapes that I love so much. I played around with some pieces that I bought from her store — really hope you guys likey!

Twee-licious I

The first look features a dress called Gingham Monster O_O How cute is that? Hee~ The dress is as adorable as it’s name with plaids and huge big brown buttons plus a lacy detail on the bottom. I love how girly these pieces are and how versatile they can be. The flowery tights are also from Twee! I’m not sure how i’d describe this look, It’s a little quirky but there’s a touch of chic and “cool” from the hair and the lace glasses from glow studio. I love! Completely random and out of the bluee… (By the way the hair is from Aden and apparently I heard they came back? Could someone point me to where their store is now if they did come back?)

Twee-licious II

The next look’s main focus is Twee’s Scalleeeewag dress in red; this dress comes in both red and blue and both are just too adorable for words. It doesn’t come with glitch pants or undershorts so do wear something or moving around can sometime be a little too over revealing (I had to learn it the embarrassing way hee). I paired it with this Mushroom Bolero that Chance won at the Massimo lucky board but was so sweet to give it to me thinking I’d have more use for it. I hope I did the jacket justice because it is sooo adorable.. The hair I’m sporting belongs to Atelier*AM and is one of their newest releases. I love buns and I love bangs — so this just fulfills all my wants for a pretty hair! The shoes I have to thank Abra for — she teepeed me over to Kalnins telling me that there were new releases! I absolutely love the full customizability of these shoes and how versatile they are!

Twee-licious III

Finally, I wanted to do something chic since I guess I’m hardly every chic *giggles* This dress from twee comes with 2 different skirt options so you can wear it in different ways. I love this new hair from booN with all my heart — big thanks to Nil for alerting me about it! She was spot on about my taste in hairrr ūüėČ Thus adorable bag comes from Pampered Princess. I came across this store a while back but never got a chance to feature anything from them. This store carries a bunch of brightly colored chic pieces and their bags are just to die for. Another thing is, the photos of this amazing talented creator are also just gorgeous! Go check out her flickr right here. *HEARTS*

Hope you guys enjoyed these and got a glimpse of what adorableness Twee has in her store! Check them outtt~

running romantic

The Fashion Relay Challenge has been going on for quite a while now — I joined in pretty late and I’m really thankful to still be given the chance to join!

I was lucky enough to take over this baton from Dahlindah Destiny over at Free*Style. I loved her post — filled with gorgeous accessories and such an eclectic mix of fashion! I contemplated the belt, the necklace or perhaps the tights but I ended up thinking… I’ve never been to *MINX* before, maybe I should give those shoes a try. How lucky I was to strike a jackpot! I found Dahlindah’s shoes in white which was the color I hoped to emphasize my outfit on. I decided those were the piece I’ll take from her — MINX’s Sugar Baby Heels in white ^^

Big huge thank you to Dahlindah who gave me a whole bunch of stuff to pick from ^^

*MINX* carries a whole bunch of heels and pumps that are super tall and very -fierce- I think. I think the shape of these heels are so interesting and have so much attitude — white tones it down good enough for the look I went for. This look I hope evokes a feeling of innocence romance, which are how I feel about the pieces I have been finding so far.

SUGARCUBE¬†is Sayuri Cremorne’s genius store; the prices are really reasonable and the dresses are just too amazing for words! I love how romantic they all feel — girly and so filled with fun! This piece is called the “HASU – one shoulder dress (in blanche)” I love how it looks like a little flower with the bubble dress having tons of layers. Sayuri’s store has recently become my favorite shops to get dresses, and from my conversations with her, she’s been a sweetheart!

I wanted to emphasize the bubble shape of the dress, simply because it’s one of my favorite shapes in real life. I then remembered my Paper Couture vest that I haven’t worn before, and really now, what evokes romance more than Paper Couture?? I knew that the rules were that every item needed to be able to be purchased as a separate, this vest came with a dress ^^” Apologies for that, it was too late by the time I remembered *dies of shame*

The hair is cumu’s newest release! Cumu is a hair store I found a while back from Abra‘s blog; I love cumu’s feminine styles and when I tped over to the old LM, I realized the store was no longer there. I found that they have moved to a new LM together with UnTone Quilt where all her previous hair styles and a few brand new ones are held!

Accessories wise, I hope I picked a huge variety for the next baton runner to pick from. I love unJour so much, from the inspiring sim to the pieces that just evoke such a sense of fantasy to them. This headpiece belongs to them, and really does show you the gorgeousness of unJour’s designs. [Twee] is a store Chance introduced to me saying you gots to see this store! And boy was I glad I dropped by, not only do they have adorable tights and dresses — they had a wall of cute glasses which I have been recently obsessed with. Do give them a look as that is where I got these adorable pair from!

The gloves came together with lace stockings and both black and white versions for simply 100L — a steal from one of the most interesting stores ever; The Black Canary. I found ENCEMBLE‘s new ribbon socks fitting for the whole look. I then added Maitreya‘s sculpted anklets which I think gave a nice finishing touch for the outfit.

Some sims we walk around in thinking you’d never get anything from there just cause it’s so crazy! Like The Laughing Academy which sells all sorts of renaissance fashion. Dressing periodic is not my style at all, but the exciting accessories I found in there were just amazing! The shoes in particular blew my mind away — they were so well done and intricate. I picked out a floral white lace parasol from them that completed my look ^^

Apologies for talking so much… but now I hand over my baton in full speed to Tomoyo Breitman over at Frenzy Shoppers. Apparently she will also be last on the list so I can’t wait to see how she ends this relay in a blast like I know she will!

take my breathe away~

*waves*
I missed you all muchness~ Thank you for the sweet good luck wishes for my exams, I finally finished my two huge ones and I’m left with 1 more this monday and imma doneeeee!! I couldn’t really wait till Monday before opening my Paper Couture folder and looking through em~ I know there’s been tons of post on Paper Couture and I’m sure tons of you have oogled on the loveliness posted by female and male fashionistas alike. I personally had a blast oogling through them during the time I was spose to be studying heh.

So here’s a look I came up based upon the different pieces I stumbled upon during this entire week of studying.

paper couture fun~ I

paper couture fun~ II

Paper Couture pieces are no doubt gorgeous to the max, I think I went broke getting their accessories which I love so much. I’ve never really owned any of their older pieces and it’s such an eye opener to try on their current collection. Paper Couture outfits came as full sets, which always means more pieces to play around with! Whoopi~ This Carnation Jacket is a piece that I love love love. So many ways to wear it, so many prim parts you can detach, reattach and play around to fit the look you want. I decided to base an outfit all around this jacket.

I went for something completely puffy with a belt around the waist to still provide an hourglass look. This adorable skirt is a new release from This is a Fawn — a shop carrying tons of basics that still had a quirky touch. I accessorized with a pink belt from StoRin that I found whilst clearing up my inventory and shoes from Lya which has one of the most adorable shapes I’ve seen in sl. I’m now however rethinking that perhaps a different color might suit the entire look better.

My inventory really needs a little cleaning up after shopping this weekend. I’ve been aiming to categorize my items into separate brand folders and I’m about 60% done now whoots!

OH! Thank you to all the amazing designers that have been sending me stuff for the Blogger’s Appreciation week declared over here. (Like those gorgeous eyes I’m wearing from =HooT= YAY!) A thank you note always brings a smile to my face — but blogging is still something I do out of pure fun so it’s no hard work for me ^^ I love doing what i do and I’m only happy that people are liking it as well… yay!

Ooooo another thing hee~ Some of you might have noticed me posting in Free*Style. I got invited last week and I’m truly blessed to be working with some of the most dedicated bloggers in sl. I hope to add some interesting finds there that will differentiate me from the other amazing posts you can find there!

So~ Fun events happened this week and I can’t wait to be able to come back to sl without having other rl evilness distracting me hehe… see you soon!!
