Recyling Fun

March 31, 2009

This outfit started with the Ibizzare pea coat which I picked up at a sale recently. I really love the colour but alas! a season too late. Indeed, winter outfits.. they are bought and worn over a period of 3-4 months, then left forgotten, buried in the depths of our inventory. In reality, we have an excuse of not using them. However, in SL, the pharse “Death by Heatstroke” is missing from out vocabulary. Why not recycle them and make them spring-like?

Just Watch Me

March 30, 2009

Another trailer park worthy look. It started with the fannel shirt I picked up at the recent Chikka Designs Sale. I’ve declared my love for chikka’s designs prim and i’ll do it again. This is like one of the rare shops where I don’t have to adjust the collar prim. Not even repositioning it by a little! =P The shorts are something I had since my noob days from this little shop called yamy. They offer a small selection of women items – all below 50L. There’s also some men clothes avaliable at the same deal.

Autumn Hykova, of Pixel Dust fame, was kind enough to share this new hair of hers with me. This particular messy ponytail do is named esme. *wonders if its after the character in twilight.. I think too much =P* She paid really great attention to the textures. If you look closely, especially that front right prim, you can actually seee the individual strands of some hair. I love it! This hair will be released soon under her new brand Tiny Bird. So watch out for it! Thanks so much Autumn! You made me feel special XD

(Ps. I will upload a big pic of the hair tmr.. I’m sleepy now sorries..)

The shoes are from Gbberish, which is currently having a 1/2 price sale on all clothes and shoes till the 31st of March. These boots are really beautifully scrulpted. They have ribbons on the back. Gasp! Plus point! Hurry down before the sale ends.. the price of the boots are really really worth it!

Sidenote: Ibizzare is having a 10L sale on all items on the 2nd floor of the shop till 2pmSLT today.  Do remember the lag rule and reduce you ACR! Keep trying to get in the region. Its mainly old stuff but worth the effort nonetheless…

晴朗的天空

March 26, 2009

I’m feeling abit blah blah. Instead of writing a typical blog entry, I thought I share the song that inspired this outfit…

天空是晴朗的
tian kong shi qing lang de
The sky is sunny and cloudless

夢想燃燒著快樂
meng xiang ran shao zhe kuai le
Dreams are kindling happiness

相信我和你是最酷的
xiang xin wo he ni shi zui ku de
(I) believe that me and you are the coolest

汗水痛快流著
han shui tong kuai liu zhe
Sweats are flowing merrily

勇氣讓愛閃亮著
yong qi rang ai shan liang zhe
Bravely, let the love shine

勇敢不怕累
yong gan bu pa lei
The brave is not scared of being tired

直到我們都笑了
zhi dao wo men dou xiao le
Until we both smile

Boho Love Again…

March 23, 2009

Blogging at 1.30am. XD I must be crazy. Sorry for any incoherent sentences…

I discovered DahliaJames’ store, !Doux Petit, by accident earlier tonight. This boho dress, one of her latest release just caught my eye. I must say, the texture is stunning and the whole dress has a really smooth and flowy feeling. The dress prim is really well done. I did shrink the prim a little as I’m not really a fan of calf length dresses, and well the original seemed a little big for my peitite shape. But even after much shrinking, I was surprised that I did not have to edit each and every prim seperately to fit. Such joys! Not much accessorizing was done. Just a jacket and some cute earrings to complete the look. The dress simply has to be the focus of the outfit. I really look forward to future release by !Doux Petit. <3 Ciao!

Ps. Incidently, Dahlia’s mainstore is the one beside Modd.G. Lolx. so you could check both of them out when you visit the store :)

Honeydukes

March 21, 2009

I am a bad blogger. You find out why I have been missing.. ermm soon :P

I simply love the feeling of shopping at barerose. Its like the SL fashion equivalent of Honeydukes (its the candy store in the Harry Potter series). There’s boxes after boxes of products packed to their brim, cheap prices, a raffle ball or rather the clown that hands out “lollipops”, and contest through the ever “lovable” luck chairs. Everytime I go there, I discovered something different, something new. Its no exception this time. The Tokyo Drive set, which I believe is one of June’s latest release is my latest indulgence from barerose. I fell in love with the vibrant and striking colours from this set. Plus, there’s a PINK one, one of the in colours this spring which starts TODAY!  Secondly, HOC, which I’ve blogged sometime ago, release a fabulous pair of sketchers for a mere 30L. Like all its other products, its scripted to colour change. Guys don’t be sad. This pair of sketchers come in both guy and gal versions in the same package! Yupx yupx that’s all for today.. signing off <3 Tomoyo

Blocked

March 16, 2009

I’ve got to say something. The grid has been quiet lately on the fashion side. Sorry for the lack of updates. My head has been blocked in regards to fashion since the BA post hahaz.

This outfit was one I wore during my shifts at Seven, which is a totally awesome club, to work and hang in. The top worn is another from Beauty Avatar’s wonderful line. I totally fell in love with the metallic texture of the top. It screams glam, yet not overdone at the same time. This particular shade of gold is such a beauty too. Furthermore, there is a cute little jacket to protect my shoulders from the spring breeze. W&Y has always been a favourite of mine for cheap and quality hair. I visited the store a few days ago and to my surprise, the store revamped! The interior is changed, and there are many many new releases. This hair shown below is one of the latest release from W&Y. For a mere 100L, this hair comes in 2 version, all shades avaliable and a flower. Yea.. there has been a marked up in price since we last heard about them. But I personally felt the new styles are totally worth the extra. Plus, the hair looks kinda retextured and fuller now, a big plus for me as I disliked the thin strands of hair on the older hairs.  Tights were added to “colour” up the outfit.

Hope you like it <3 Enjoy your sundays!

Edit: I’m an idiot. i forgot to say the hair is scripted to change texture/colours. So don’t be surprised that you only find 2 items in the 100L folder. They are helping you save inventory space! :D

Beautify me please?

March 11, 2009

Woot! I finally finish the post I have been working on since Sunday *whistles*. When Saretta contacted me to do a review for beauty avatar, I was in shocked… yupx imagine a girl manically grinning at her computer and you will get me at that point of time.

I chose to use the dress from the Inaya outfit as my base and created 3 different outfits from it. The dress caught my eye immediately while browsing their flickr catalouge. I love the silky feeling of the dress. Plus, its white, the colour of an empty canvas. Perfect for accessorizing.

The 1st look is a rather simple one. A simple jacket, another of beauty AV latest release. Not much accessorizing except for the big fabulous Fabulous bag which gave a splurge of colour to the whole look. Chicoco is a store which i recently went back to visit. Reasonable prices and really cute stuff. This hairband was one that I was eyeing back in my noob days and I’m happy its finally in my inventory yay!

The 2nd look. Ah,  it started with this so many styles jacket. In a bid to challenge myself to stay away from the usual blacks and whites, I picked up this limegreen one which I absolutely love. The gold patterns on the jacket seem to pop on the green background. *Quick random fact: Green + Gold reminds me of Hari Raya, the Malays new year :)* I wanted a belt that peek from under the jacket. After much tweaking and heavy modding, I managed to fit this chain belt, which comes with the Inaya outfit under the jacket. I attached a earring onto the belt too, serving as a charm for the belt itself. I love the outcome. Yes.. finally Dejavu’s yuria is mine too :)

One of the things I love is to wear the bottom parts of dresses as skirts, either with a belt or a oversized top to hide the seems. The ones with sculpted skirts, such as Inaya here, works best worn with this method, as the top seems are rather even. The following look showcases one of the jacket by one of my besties, Moddish Gossipgirl. The sculptie at the bottom of the jacket was really useful in this outfit, allowing a smooth transition between the top and bottom. One of the other things I “borrowed” from beauty avatar is their latest skins, the Tabita line. Likewise other beauty avatar skins, Tabita comes with a slightly glossy face and a range of dramatic, high fashion makeups. I was really attracted to the pouty and full lips these skins possesses. I just wished there was a darker brow option for this skin. The hair flower is a recent find from the shop !!wild O. I was just visiting their new store at the frolics sim when I saw this sophisticated flower for a mere 10L. I think its only for a limited time though(?)  Sometimes, simplicity is the best… not too extravegent, but bringing a lovely touch to the whole outfit.

The possibilities and ways to wear this dress is endless. Whether it is worn as a dress on the whole or as seperates, this dress is definitely a keeper. Hope you guys enjoyed the post! <3
