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~

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~

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 😉

take my breathe away~

*waves*
I missed you all muchness~ Thank you for the sweet good luck wishes for my exams, I finally finished my two huge ones and I’m left with 1 more this monday and imma doneeeee!! I couldn’t really wait till Monday before opening my Paper Couture folder and looking through em~ I know there’s been tons of post on Paper Couture and I’m sure tons of you have oogled on the loveliness posted by female and male fashionistas alike. I personally had a blast oogling through them during the time I was spose to be studying heh.

So here’s a look I came up based upon the different pieces I stumbled upon during this entire week of studying.

paper couture fun~ I

paper couture fun~ II

Paper Couture pieces are no doubt gorgeous to the max, I think I went broke getting their accessories which I love so much. I’ve never really owned any of their older pieces and it’s such an eye opener to try on their current collection. Paper Couture outfits came as full sets, which always means more pieces to play around with! Whoopi~ This Carnation Jacket is a piece that I love love love. So many ways to wear it, so many prim parts you can detach, reattach and play around to fit the look you want. I decided to base an outfit all around this jacket.

I went for something completely puffy with a belt around the waist to still provide an hourglass look. This adorable skirt is a new release from This is a Fawn — a shop carrying tons of basics that still had a quirky touch. I accessorized with a pink belt from StoRin that I found whilst clearing up my inventory and shoes from Lya which has one of the most adorable shapes I’ve seen in sl. I’m now however rethinking that perhaps a different color might suit the entire look better.

My inventory really needs a little cleaning up after shopping this weekend. I’ve been aiming to categorize my items into separate brand folders and I’m about 60% done now whoots!

OH! Thank you to all the amazing designers that have been sending me stuff for the Blogger’s Appreciation week declared over here. (Like those gorgeous eyes I’m wearing from =HooT= YAY!) A thank you note always brings a smile to my face — but blogging is still something I do out of pure fun so it’s no hard work for me ^^ I love doing what i do and I’m only happy that people are liking it as well… yay!

Ooooo another thing hee~ Some of you might have noticed me posting in Free*Style. I got invited last week and I’m truly blessed to be working with some of the most dedicated bloggers in sl. I hope to add some interesting finds there that will differentiate me from the other amazing posts you can find there!

So~ Fun events happened this week and I can’t wait to be able to come back to sl without having other rl evilness distracting me hehe… see you soon!!
