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~

edging up Church of Luxe II

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.

edging up Church of Luxe III

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 little white dresses I

I have been dying to catch up with my postings but rl has been keeping be thoroughly occupied and it’s been a whirlwind week for sure. Anywho~ Good morning!! I hope everyone’s doing fine and dandy today ^^

White has always been my favorite color, and in rl i’ve been getting comments to wear other colors aside from that — it’s like my safe color which I fall back on time and time again. So I thought why not dedicate an entire post to this favorite color of mine. So instead of the classic little black dress, I shall show you guys my little white dresses. I’ll try to keep it as wedding free as possible!

Beauty Avatar Couture recently released their new estate collection featuring a myriad of stunning pieces that are must haves in one’s sl closet. This dress in particular caught my eye. I love the structured look of it — but still maintaining it’s feminine charm with the length and bow. It’s an extremely low cut dress so instead of flashing my non existent cleavage, I’m pairing it with a textured top form Modern Gypsy. The intricate pattern on this really pops against the solid Beauty Avatar dress. I’m in loooveee with that huge flower on my head! That’s a new release from FreshTrash which recently just opened in Starlust. It’s scripted and comes in various colors to suit your look~

The next look comes closest to looking like a wedding dress — only thing is, that longer bottom isn’t a dress, it’s actually really large loose pants from Beauty Avatar. I’m rather short so this piece being unmodifiable proved a little harder to fit. This stunning dress from Lo*momo comes in 2 different skirt options and has a really adorable neckline in my opinion. I’m featuring some older LaGyo pieces which are also some of my favorites from this talented designer. Gyorgyna Larnia has been releasing one after the other of stunning jewelry — treating us fashionistas to a myriad of stunning pieces to pick from. Every time I visit, I feel like I’m in a candy store with so much choices that I really have no clue what I don’t want *giggles*

Finally, this last piece features a gorgeous dress from Meghindo‘s a store you definitely need to see if you haven’t! This dress was one of my favorites but another one that really caught my eye was the pink diamond dress which you can see nil and uma sporting. Meghindo Romano really has some interesting dresses and swim suits which are definitely worth a look! Oh! This is also my first successful attempt at prim feet~~ teehee. Just wanted to share cause I was happeh the skin tone matches!

Anywho, I hope you enjoyed my series of little white dresses. I hope to find more and feature them on pretty occasional basis since I truly love having all white looks. Makes me feel clean like a fresh bar of soap! Whoohoo~

make us over

I’ve been meaning to make this post for quite some time but rl has been wayyyyy crazeh!

I’m sure tons of you have heard about the Make Him Over Hunt that’s going on from June 1st till June 30th! This hunt is dedicated thoroughly for the male population in sl which means a great time to drag your boyfriend for a make over or for male fashionistas all around to go crazy with gifts! Tarsis Gausman contact me the other day and asked if I could do a little cover on this hunt and I was already planning to so I gladly agreed to help promote this ^^

Female Fashionistas out there who love hunting would be glad to know there’s tons of unisexual gifts in this hunt and tons of clothes that can be modified to fit our female shapes. I personally took a few of my favorite items from the hunt and made 2 looks — hope it inspires some of you to check out the goodies available!

I’m also taking the time to use my 2 favorite skins from UGLYDOROTHY as Sopha has recently opened a new main store and I’m so proud of the job well done in building the store right from scratch!

(Ah!! I forgot to edit the right most picture where the jacket cuts into the bag… doh~)
The first look is described as “Little Boy Going to get Groceries” by Tomoyo *giggles* I decided to wear this adorable shirt from iPop — this store carries some of the most creative t-shirts i’ve seen in sl lately. I love the clean and crisp designs to match their creativity. Definitely a very unisexual tee — and I thought it’d be cute for a girl to wear a fake tie heh. I matched it with this pair of shorts from BALACLAVA which now comes in several colors but this black one is specially for the hunt. My love for this store is apparent specially with the number of times I’ve been seen wearing their pieces (and they’re a menswear store!) I wanted to dress this look up with a jacket from AOHARU (not from the hunt), since I never seem to have worn their jackets before and AOHARU does make some of the best jackets in sl.

I love the hair of this look — a short male cut together with the hat comes from Bryce Designs — I decided to add extensions from Novocaine which gave it a more feminine touch. This adorable bag from CHABINNS has been seen in several blogs now, but it’s just too adorable to not pimp out once again. I love it’s open and close open but open is really the only way to go with such gorgeous details!

The next look is due to my lurve for this cardigan from A:S:S!!! It was a little too realistic for my taste, but when I took photos of it, the folds really work adorably with the poses. I think the shade is great for unisexual wear as well — don’t deny me my cardigans! Teehee… Whippet & Buck never fails to surprise me again with the high quality work churned out from that store. I love the Marine theme gift they gave out but only chose to wear the pants. I pulled it up and tried to make the pants look like half leggings as well — just to show you how detailed this brand is with their clothes. Look at the little stitches that would normally be covered by the prim part! So cute….

I believe mens wear in sl are really great in quality as there’s such a small niche pool. It’s been a joy to participate in this hunt and I found so many great stores I’d normally never see since they’re mostly menswear… I hope you guys enjoyed these looks and why not drop by to participate in this hunt — or drag your man to get some great new gear!

strawberry kisses

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!
