*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!
