let the show begin~

Just something fun with some new goodies I collected recently~~ I gotta say whoohoo to ATOMIC for their brand new spankin sim which consists of some reaaallly awesome new releases. I particularly am so glad that hair is now being sold there! I got myself this adorable Gwen style that comes with a top hat that can be changed to either white or black. I love how the feminine aspect of this style comes only when you tilt your camera angle and see a tied bit at the back~

Another awesome new release comes from MG Fashion which never fails to blow me away with their amazing jackets. This Louis Jacket is no doubt a high fashion essential — a masculine cut with interesting lines down the sleeves and comes in so many awesome colors! I got myself a few but brown was the way to go for this look. I paired it up with AU V‘s lovely Cleque dress. If you’ve never been to AU V and you’re a fan of high fashion, you really should taxi down and take a look about. Jare Capalini’s interesting couture styles are always a pleasure to behold!

I’m also awesomely proud of finding these gorgeous pair of kboots from xstreet seller Ju Weissnicht. I’m such a bad shoe shopper, I reuse my pairs over and over again, so I took a good day off to shop for some brilliant shoes and I’m so glad to add some new ones to my collection ^^

Psssttt…. there’s something special brewing in the air… which will come to you this Sunday 😉 So keep on a lookout! You do NOT wanna miss what’s happening!

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

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 ❤

glitter and gold

Lately the looks i’ve been coming up with have been leaning towards a more glamorous edge, which makes me wonder why since I’m with my family and have been the most mellow and toned down I’ve been in ages *inserts lol* I’m having tons of fun finding all these amazing glam stuff in my inventory though! So today, i’m showing 2 looks which revolves around the fab glitter and gold~ what every girl kinda needs in their inventory no?

glitter and gold II
glitter and gold I

The first dress comes from this store I found not too long ago called GARCONS Tokyo, they have some supper shiny dresses which makes for great night wear — each dress I got comes in a long formal version and a shorter fun version; I opted for the shorter one with ruffles as I thought they’d be great fun to pair with these pair of chunky Beauchamp Heels from Gbberish which are oh so interesting and fun. To carry the leather up, I wore AOHARU‘s cut head accessory in cow print which makes for an interesting fun look. I decided for simple layering of pearls which I’ve been rather obsessed with since in rl, mom says pearls can only be worn after marriage *nuuuu* I insist they’re rather flattering on any age!

glitter and gold III
glitter and gold IV

The next look features something more on a tomboy side, but still glitter and sequined! I’m excited for Kendall’s new brand Wasted Youth as the store features a collection filled with fun daring prints and adorable daily wear. This sequined blazer comes with adorable sculpted shoulders and the most interesting print! Something this strong can make one look old so I opted for short denims from Milk Motion and ripped leggings from Fishy*Strawberry (I LOVE!!). I accessorized with Hair Salon CriCri‘s hair (free I believe from a summer fair) that has a script to turn that flower piece on and off — something so gorgeous shouldn’t be hidden though!! The belt is an adorable weaved belt from Beetle Bones, and will be in her upcoming release which features adorable hand drawn ostrich leather bags too! Be on a lookout for that ^^

Both looks features the brand new skin Raine from PinkFuel which has such a HUGE variety of makeup for any genre that one might cry to pick favorites. I love the lips on this skin and have been rather obsessed with the cream shade that allows the lips to show oh so perfectly. Mochi has been working long and hard on these skins and one can see the hardwork from how gorgeous they turn out to be. ❤ Bless her heart and I anticipate more gorgeousness from Mochi in the future and I know tons of you will be too!

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)

bohemian easy~

Yay! I still can blog whoohoo~
I’m growing a bit rusty I can tell and the new Emerald update is not letting me take snapshots O_O Every time I take a snapshot, my IMs, inventory, edit box all turns transparent. I’m wondering if anyone else faced that problem and knows how to fix it? Cause I have to relog after every snap and it’s evilll… (I’m using a macbook too, if any fellow mac bookers can help! — muacks to you!)

bohemian easy~ I

bohemian easy~ II

So there’s a few stores that I’ve been dying to cover during my hiatus and I’m so glad I can still do these. First up is darling Moddish who released a whole bunch load of new stuff in Modd.G — this Maya Halter is my favorite in particular. Super boho chic and very versatile~ I paired it up with Doppelganger Inc‘s Junebug dress that I love love love! Doppelganger has been releasing some really adorable clothes and I’m so happy to see their stuff on the grid. Not only are they awesome shape makers, Fran and Syler have been great with clothes as well. They just recently released a dress with whale prints on it, super cute and retro!

This hair from FUGEES Teardrop is unreleased but I ❤ it so much. FUGEES is a very talented Japanese designer who is currently working on not only hair but i’ve seen some of the skins she does as well. Very soft and pretty. I know some of you have asked about this hair on my vendors so if you like it, be on a lookout for FUGEE’s store which hopefully will be around soon!

I hope you guys like this look as I warm up to blogging again, I hope to fix my emerald issues soon so i can take prettier pictures.
Thank you all for the support on my store, I’m so glad that you guys like em. If there’s any problems or feedback, please feel free to send me a notecard ^^

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~~

dare you do that II
dare you do that I

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~

dare you do that III
dare you do that IV

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!

ohmai! it’s hair fair~

I know tons of you have been bogged down by the amazing hair seen around Hair Fair lurking around the feeds and another post about it would probably make you look away with ARGH MORE HAIR!?! hee ~ But i’m taking the risk and still hoping to show case these. This has been the first Hair Fair I’ve been to and I couldn’t be more excited and eager to show you the gorgeous hairs available. I spent an awfully long time editing the photos, hoping to do justice to the good work designers have put out. I decided to do pictures of nothing but hair ~ so here’s me mannequin style! I hope you guys like them!

Hair has been one of my big loves in sl — it gives your avatar personality; a character. Hair Fair not only provides a venue for everyone in sl to purchase gorgeous hair; it’s also for a great cause. Which everyone should keep in mind when walking around the currently extremely laggy sim. Stop to donate some lindens to the team of hardworking and dedicated designers who have done massive work in making Hair Fair a success ~ these lindens go a long way in helping Locks of Love.

I’d just like to say a massive thank you for the organizers who so generously allowed me in the sim during a less laggy moment and for designers who have dropped me review packs. I’m utterly grateful and although I couldn’t manage to show case all of them, I’m crossing my fingers I exposed tons of great new hair for you guys!

Note: There’s no SURL to individual Booths — I meant to do it but I kept getting crashed when i’m trying to make certain of them so poo~ apologies
