falling for gatcha~

As I said I’ll be back to cover on the Gatcha festival~ I’m hoping to gear up and start blogging again while resting a little after the mainstore cause I’m kinda drained from creating new things I won’t lie. I have so much ideas but schools just spinning out of control. So i’ll slink back into blogging, something that I love to refresh my inspiration juices a bit. As they say, oil the rusty gears! hee…

So when one thinks of Gatcha the words random, awesome and evil all comes into mind. Exact sentiments from me; this is the first Gatcha festival I’ve ever been too and I’m a big fan of those tiny ol’ machines where you just don’t know what sorta goodies you’re gonna get. The idea of that surprise in box, or prim, in our case — is just endearingly evil. You see your lindens slowly slip away but look on the bright side, you probably have tons of new goodies and even some transferable ones for friends!

This time round I spotted lots of gorgeous prints and textures running around in the gatcha prizes. So I decided to do a few looks inspired by the next season that’s slowly creeping back into LA. Sorry summer, but fall is really much much muchhhh better. When I think fall fashion, i think warm, cosy, lots of reds, browns, oranges and maybe a tinge of green leftover. I think textures and prints! Which falls together with the items from gatcha very very well.

The first, no well both looks feature my favorite piece from this year’s festival — Elate‘s Elise dress! I love the girly youthful shape with the vintage florals which are oh so so feminine. I paired them up with a tweed jacket from DP*YumYum which isn’t gatcha but so appropriate for fall; a piece you can wear over and over again and just never gets boring. The accessories in this look mostly came from Gatcha and I especially wanna give special love to PIDIDDLE‘s broach and head pieces which are so pretty! I kept spinning trying to get tanks but alas, lady luck wasn’t on my side this time round. Luckily I have plenty of accessories from my hard work~

The next look is really mostly gatcha love! The turtle sleeveless top comes from couverture, a special rare item you get if you spin endlessly like I did just to get a specific color of their tights. I loved these socks from sen*2 and scarf from LOULOU&CO. as well~ I find it so incredible how designers are putting out some very similar colors for the upcoming season which proves which colors are on the buzz lately. These adorable candy from TEKUTEKU comes with cheek blushing as well, hence the flushed look on my face. Which by the way goes incredibly well with the lip makeup of vive9‘s Po — my new favorite skin thus far from Blu! BeetleBones also finally finished her gatcha after several probing and annoying on my part. You’ll find these adorable heels over at her gatcha stand, tons of colors to get and the style is just too adorable for words!

I don’t have much to say about why I came up with this look cept I realized I haven’t done much black and white pieces heh. I’ve got such a lust for colors sometimes it’s tough finding a desaturated tone in my inventory… (I abused the smoke brush in this ones, I see nao XD)

Uma has been sporting some pretty cute skins lately and I dropped by Vivé9 to take a good look at them. During the process of trying on demos, BluAbyss Denimore sent me a pack of Aoki fair which is exactly the ones I was anticipating to get. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it… I’d do a skin review but my brain is malfunctioning so bad lately O_O I love the faces of these skins though, so incredibly unique and makes anyone that wears it look like a precious asian doll. There’s tons of amazing unique makeup for Aoki so if you haven’t been to Vivé9, take a lookie!

I’m a huge loose clothing fan so when I see one that’s well done, well it’s hard to resist. This Sugarcube top is a perfect example of loose tanks we so lack in sl!! I love how natural it looks and how well the prim fits the body. If you haven’t seen these, go down and grab them in a few colors, they’re definitely an inventory staple! I couldn’t resist adding a pop of color as a undertank — just to give this look a little more interest.

These pants are new releases from Miel and if you haven’t got their subscribo gift, you’re missing out on something good! Miel’s fathers day gift to their fans is a unisex tie that’s slung in a relaxed manner over the shoulder. Super cute and adds interest to any look. Instead of wearing that, I decided to feature another store that’s currently going through some renovations. Alta Mode is a store carrying some adorable accessories and poses — they are currently separating their poses into 1 store and the accessories in another. I’m not sure if they’re open or still renovating but do drop by and take a look!

This hair from Marly is one that I absolutely love and haven’t got a chance to wear. Sadly, Marly is taking a break for real life and her store is now closed. We hope to see her back sometime!! Final mention is Kookie! I’m sure you’ve heard, but Kookie is having a 50% sale on all her older items to prepare for new ones. As much as I’m excited during the sale, and got myself some shoes like these Phoebe shoes, I’m suuperrr excited to see her new releases. Plus Milk Motion, Marie has been teasing us with some great stuff on Flickr!

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!
