dare you do that?

*waves hi from Singapore*
hi!! So my reason for being slightly absent is that I’ve recently landed back in Singapore, a place I grew up in and as much as I’m glad to see home again, the internet here is horribly slow. I lag like crazy and I’ve never had so much crashes while blogging outfits before so… poo… poo… and more poo!!

*ahem* Anywho, I wanted to share some stuff with you guys. Chance Greatrex has grown so much since I first met and spoke with him inworld — his poses are by far some of the most couture and inspiring ones I’ve seen in sl, and its never a bore spending time with him. I’m sure most of you have already gotten at least one of his poses, but if you haven’t, do drop by DARE to check them out! He recently has a new pose set up which can be seen used by Dolly Ewing. However, some of you might not know that Chance actually dabbled in clothes before making poses and has some extremely beautiful dresses in his store. He is currently holding a sale, dropping the prices of his dresses to nearly 1/2 of it’s original price! I’m crossing my finger that this perfectionist would start creating more gorgeous dresses as I love them so… I loved the dresses on its own, but being a person who loves creating new looks, I decided to take bits and pieces of his dresses and create entirely different looks from them. I hope I did them justice and entice you to visit his store for some of his beautiful dresses~~

The first look is a little more elegant and couture than what I normally would wear, but I still love it nonetheless. I took the top part of Chance’s Midnight Tango dress and paired it with fourYIP‘s gorgeous black dress pants for something more masculine but still very sexy. What I love most about Midnight Tango is the intricate designs on the sheer front, and how it transitions into a more opaque material at the back~ this dress shows skin without being tacky and extremely sophisticated as all of Chance’s designs.

My short cropped hair (together with the beret) comes from kik — a hair store that I’m so glad to find. I love the hair selection they have there and kik even carries full avatars complete with clothes which some of you might love.
I’m also sporting this brand new skin from ATOMIC; which comes in a variety of skin tone and is such a big improvement from their older skins. I have always loved the faces on ATOMIC skins but find their blushing a little too harsh for my taste — this new line however, is much softer in terms of blushing and has one of the most incredibly drawn bodies I’ve seen in quite some time. Look at that lip! These are early releases before the rest of the make up lines come out, and I must say this red lip is my favorite~

Next, I decided to do something more casual and cute which fits my usual style more. I took Chance’s Golden Retro dress and paired it with a different top from G Field to produce something a little more girly and summer like. I love yellow but it’s always a very hard color to match~ so i’m crossing my fingers that I matched this well… If you’ve never stepped foot in G Field, you’re missing out on some of the most well sculpted flower pieces in sl. Flowers have been all the craze in world lately and if you’re still jumping on that bandwagon, head over to G Field for some flower jewelry, dresses and even shoes! ❤ them…

The hair I’m wearing is a freebie from noju, a brand new girly Japanese store. They don’t have a lot up yet since they’re so new but they do have a freebie dress and this hair up for grabs which I’m sure you’d love! Those tights are also from a brand that recently reopened over at the new Starlust sim, Ty Zvezda carries some great dresses in the most vibrant and brave colors. If you’re a big fan of colors… you won’t be disappointed at Ty Zvezda!

The skin here is yet another make up option from ATOMIC‘s new skin. I normally don’t take pictures showing my chin because it often doesn’t have the right shading to take such an angle… this skin however has slight shading on the chin area, and I love little details like that. I’m also wearing the freckled option, which as you can see has subtle freckles around the body as well — another detail that I love and heart!

I hope you guys enjoyed these looks and be sure to head down to DARE for some gorgeous dresses which are for sale!! These dresses might not be available once Chance creates more poses to fill his store; so don’t miss out and grab some of your favorites!

unexpected visitor…

Sometimes when you meet an inspiring person — you immediately get inspired to do things you normally wouldn’t. elka Lehane has been a noticeable icon in the fashion community in sl; in fact one of the first few bloggers in our community. It was both an honor and a pleasure to spend time with her, and I want to nom her little tiny tush cause she’s super adorable! This look was created spending time with her and she dropped on me this adorable little doll that serves as my lil unexpected toy ^^ I lurve~ (FUSHING love you ^^ teehee) Oh and I waited for the belt to rez for ages O_O but I’m guessing it just might be grey?

Speaking about elka, if you’ve never seen her store before — I know I was surprised to find out she had a store O_o — you NEED to check it out! She has tons of little branches around but I’m giving you the teepee to her store over at Hbox because well, uh.. GO HBOX! elka carries several items ranging from gladiators, jewelry to awesomez hand painted clothes! Love her quirk and love her goods ^^ The look below showcases her little 60s Owl necklace…

I’d never expect myself to dorn pants like these in real life, but when I found them in world at *WM* DOUBLE M; I can’t help but go yay! Baggy clothes are much love in world and a rare commodity I think — so whenever I find out it’s always a joy! You see that lil white bit popping from under the pants? Hee~ I wish I could showcase this store better, but that’s a pair of legging from marble. A brand new store that opened and has a tiny little cottage dedicated to her wares or you can find them over at *WM* as well! This store was a great find and you guys should definitely head over to marble to see her floral printed leggings and shirts! Won’t regret I swear 😉

Another wonderful piece in this look is this gorgeous blazer from curiosity over at Cupcakes. I’m sure everyone is familiar with the cupcakes sim — since it really is one of those places you NEED to go and spend hours in, tons of shops and new ones pop up unexpectedly. Curiosity has been there for a while now I think? But I only recently found it and one of the creators has been so kind to drop me a few of their wares — mainly menswear, but then again, not surprising that we female shoppers would put it on to showcase if it is THIS awesomez looking. I love the little badge that appears on the chest, like a school blazer or some sort.

I’ve featured Periquita before but Erpla amazes me with her talents and she recently sculpted this new pair of high stilettos that features textures and colors she normally never does. I love the rounded front and the little tip at the ends that can be both in black or gold. These pair of stilettos can only be found at DARE a store that belongs to a dear friend of mine by the name of Chance Greatrex aka. SUPER GREATREX ^_^ (poo that’s your new name nao!). He recently released lacy leggings that you guys should go check out, and if you haven’t got some of his poses ~ well shame on you! Cause they are high fashion amazement!

Final showcase would be Kaethe’s amazing new poses over at Leafy. She kindly dropped a huge large humongous pack of poses on me and boy as a blogger — I’m sure that’s a dream come true! Her store normally carries crazy funky poses but she recently has been working on getting some more modelly kinds just for us bloggers who need poses so much! So be sure to give her a lookie ^^

OH OH OH! By ze way~ UGLYDOROTHY fans out there; Sopha will be opening a main store reeeeaaallll soon!!! And boy am I excited cause I just got a teaser of her 2 new skins and they are lurve! So keep your eyes open for that 😉

After all my recent post — I missed being candy cute and wanted a little bit of sugar overload — which is appropriate seeing that some of you would have had quite a bit of chocolate during easter ^^ This look is just simply for cuteness sake, and to highlight all these adorable accessories I’ve been keeping in my inventory for a while!

First off, gorgeous new pair of shoes from Periquita! Erpla Prieto (creator of Periquita’s awesome shoes) has just came back from a long break and these Chicky Chic Pumps has hit the shelves of Periquita! If you’re a big fan of her previous release “Funny Girl Flats” you’ll definitely love these as well. The unique shape will definitely turn heads, it comes in variety of shades each costing 150L — the fatpack costs 1000L. A cute new pair of pumps to add in your inventory ^^ Erpla has improved on her texturing and these pumps are definitely more textural as compared to the usual smooth pumps. I love the slight bumps in the texture, it reminded me of a strawberry, which is why I decided to pair the look with strawberry accessories from Lovesoul!

This adorable dress comes from HoneyHoney; a store I found through Free*Style. Very adorable colors on all their wares, and for very good prices. I was lucky enough to win a lucky board price on my first visit over ^^ The ribbon is originally a bow tie, but I moved it up to act as a hair accessory. I also tinted the stockings a little to tie the ribbon in with the rest of the outfit.

Hope you guys show some love to these creators, especially to these new pair of Chicky Chic pumps — they’re too adorable for words!
