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!

brave in nude~

Not much to say cept imma be narcissistic and incorporate some of my items in this look. Nude colors have lately been creeping up on my style~ Something about nude champagne colors that look extremely soft yet brave as they sometimes make you look as if there’s no clothes on. I decided to overcome that by using textures from the lingerie and odd shapes~

I’m wearing vive9‘s new Maya skin which I love love, heart heart — beyond words! Blu has come a long way since her first big hit in the community. I love how fresh her skins are, incredibly strong skins but so young and chic~ The features of her skins are something I love with my shape cause we share the same love for wide set eyes. Po and Maya her new skins have definitely won my heart over!

Putting on the gold version of my Miss.Thumbelina dress, I decided to add Beetlebones‘ gorgeous nicola dress frilly pieces. I know how much sue slaved over this dress, and I love how I can play with it and just move it about to create different effects in other looks!

In this I’m featuring some fri.day items which I actually have never featured before *gasp* I’m sure most of you have heard about fri.day, not only their high quality basics but also that huge sale they had! Lucky for me, I was incredibly out of touch with the news during the period of their opening so I decided to get so much goodies during the sale. My favorite is definitely their hair, fri.day has some amazingly textured hair which looks soft and elegant and classic~ something that rings all throughout the brand.

I also have on Maitreya shoes which are late news but oh how stunning; hands down best sculpted feet when you’re aiming for realism. I wouldn’t normally pair prim feet with stockings but the sheerness of these stockings worked well with the shoes.

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)

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!
