Simple Statements

September 11, 2009

I have been walking around the grid in this outfit for a few days now so I guess its time to blogged it. Modd.G and beetlebones recently delighted us with an onslaught of releases for the autumn season. Well not so. The high class and professional chic style remains in Sue’s new release while Moddipoo cuteness factor was transferred to her clothes as usual. The look below is simple, not much accessorizing to highlight the cute ruffles and plunging neckline on the Modd.G top. The skirt from beetlebones was modded to match. Fri.day recently have a sale and the phrase “buying a storm” might be an understatement. XD Ding For , a great blogger and friend is back on the grid. She has certainly been busy, creating more lovely shoes for our slfeets. The wool flaps, which has subtle gradients in its texture, are one of my favourite from the release. On the sidenote, this blog would not be updated as often as before due to my busy scheldue in school. Right now.. I’m just waiting for Xmas and holidays to come…

I have to draw your attention to the hat right now. I stumbled upon the shop Style Society while waiting for a shop to rez the other day. *Apparently the neighbouring store rezzed faster than the store I was in >.<* This hat is one of their latest creations. It features a colour-changeable base and rim and a buckle at the side which can change in shape! All for a mere price of 50L.  The hat is avaliable in packs of 5 colours each, printed or plain. Ahh good deals… there’s 50L fridays and poop hunt right now too! Going off to bury myself under textbooks again. <3<3 Tomoyo

Anxious For Fri.day

August 6, 2009

Fri.day has been creating lots of buzz around the grid this few months. A “mysterious” group of designers, terrific teasers and a smart marketing strategy that leave us yearing for more.. Well the wait will soon be over as fri.day will be officially open on friday. XD Below, I’m wearing some of the pieces that are part of their collection. The collection is basic and aims to “provide a good selection of basic separates that work well together and are also versatile enough that anyone can mix.match our items with their existing wardrobe”. Well, I tested the theory myself and here’s the result. The inner shirt which is actually a cardi, tee and crisp pants are from fri.day. This is just one look I’ve created and there are a million other possiblities to mix and match their items. One thing I noticed was that Fri.day offers the bottom part of tees and jacket in the jacket layer alone. Its unusual for people to do that and I applaud them for their effort. This definitely brings in more posibilities during mix and matching. Fri.day also offer a selection of hair and shoes but that’s for tmr. ^^ The other buzz around the grid would be from the upcoming brand Anexx, by the infamous machang Pichot (thankies! <3) Fans of her existing line at Aoharu would definitely not be disappointed by these beauties. *well i stared at them in awe for quite some time* The shoes all come with prim feets when necessary and the hud that comes with them have been modified extensively, making them more user friendly. They come with the usual hud and a skintone ball which allows you to select the skintone colour manually like the kookie ones so yay for easy matching! Well I managed to find my skintone in one of those defaults avaliable so doube whoopee? ^^ Anyways watch the respective shops’ blog for more details and slurls. Hope you enjoy them! <3

Get Drowsy

July 31, 2009

I have a confesssion to make. This post has been sitting open in wordpress for like 5 hours before I’m properly writing it now. Gah I’m so easily distracted U_U.
Anyways, the adorable Manatee McMillian opened her new store narwhal yesterday. Whee! Narwhal  is littered with happy cheerful clothing! Seriously, I feel happy and high shopping there. Well maybe the ambience from the beautifully decorated shop helped too. Below are 2 outfits using items from Narwhal’s collection. The 1st oufit is a really colourful and cute tuff tuff skirt. I paired it with a green puffy sleeve blouse from Bolero collection, a recent find thanks to the IM from Amanda Bolero. Her store, its another “why haven I found this store” moment all over again. So arigatou amanda!  Bolero Collection offer a myraid of items ranging from gowns to classy seperates to wild rock chick outfits, so do check it out! I was looking for socks the other day when I found this tights part of an outfit on sale at Kuri Style (the socks branch). It is only 5 or 10L for an entire outfit! As for the second outfit, it is a casual look, styled around the denim skirt which is part of Narwhal’s new releases. Boom recently released some great basic unisex t-shirts. They come in various styles including a sheer version which is shown below. There are lots of magic involved in the usage of this tee including creating your personal teeshirt colour by layering the various shirts. You gotta teepee to the store for more information ^^ The long red shirt is a recent group gift from cupcakes, a group which I have not regretted joining since day 1.I guess i better press publish now. Ta-ta! xoxo

Bones and Boots

July 29, 2009

Remember those cowboy boots from ELAN i blogged awhile back. Well, I rediscovered their store again yesterday. It has greatly expanded since the last time I’ve been there. The boots below are part of the “free boots folder” I obtained from the store and zomg I love it. The flare at the top is just right, nicely highlighting and complimenting the legs instead of making them look like sticks. XD There is also a hot pair of high heel boots avaliable at the store. I’ll show them to you in a later post ^^ My friend Sue opened her first shop yesterday here and most of her clothing are avaliable at affordable prices. I decided to use a bow from one of her dresses as a brooch here. I dropped by Kari today and saw these cute clothes peg bangle. ZOMG you can resist laundry but clothes peg bangles are adorables and unresistable! Plus, they come in a multicolour version and another version where the texture of the clothes pegs are scripted to change. Havean awesome wednesday! xoxo

The attempt to go punk that failed. Credits for discovering the store Madsy and this cool jacket goes to Anya Ohmai <3 I saw her spotting it the other day and pestered her for a lm. muacks you! Madsy doesn’t have a huge colection but has already proven itself to be a promising store. Flower skirt, what can I say except letting out a huge yipee and hugging Irie for making an awesome retro flowery skirt. L□∨Ε…φ( ̄▽ ̄*)ポッ

I’m sold… to this cover girl dress. I was glad to stumble upon their shop while shopping around the new Macos Hip Hop sim yesterday. The 1st outfit was kept simple, with the main focus on the dress itself. You could see that the prim work and textures are really well done. The dress itself comes with mod prims as well as an exact same copy of the prims that are no mod but resizable. Thumbs up for the extra effort taken. I wore this dernier cri hair in the combined post with trace over at his blog and couldn’t help wearing it again.This hair has been glued to my skull for the past few days. I love the way the hair flows down naturally and slightly covers the left eye.  If you’re wondering about the “checked” bag in the 1st outfit, I’m not sure if its still avaliable. I have a bad habit of not deleting objects I’ve unpacked, especially cute shopping bags. Trace can verify this fact lmao.. This particular one is from royal blue and it looks like the type my granny uses and is super adorable! I’m thankful for the fact that its mod and was able to kill the hover text it had to use it as an accessory XD. As for the 2nd outfit, muacks you nina for making me post it ^^. Its inspired by one of the new releases over at shag. Shag made its first appearence on the grid during the hair fair and is now back with their store! whee! The French Kiss Hairstyle, with the beret and all, reminded me of something one would wear in paris. I used the top of the cover girl dress and wore a dress prim from one of my old cupcake dresses to add some colour to the dress. Ohhh! The skins used in both pictures are the new aoki skins from rockberry which I absolutely 100% love. I’ve tried several skins based on aoki devon but this is my favourite so far. ^^ While you are there, click on the MM board which offers the uma skins in red lips. Its absolutely juicy and worth the lag! Lastly, Aoharu sale ends today so pick up your favourite items before the day ends… like… that pretty trenchcoat I’m spotting in the 2nd outfit as well as those cute and useful sueude laceup sandals *coughs* Eww to monday! <33 Tomoyo

I was just in the mood to edit some pictures today… leading to this outfit.  The hair from SLink was an impulse buy at the hair fair and I’m glad I got it. Apart from the style being cute and indian princess like, I never really realise how nice SLink hair textures are until I was editing the picture. The stray strands from the hair which added that touch of realism I love, the polished texture = I think I’m going hair shopping soon. Anyone with me? XD The top is from the CAI dress from Lelutka. I was simply drawn in by the huge chest ruffles on this dress and the semi-transparent design on it. They are simply a stroke of genius. Typing keywords into the search bar is a great way to find hidden items in your inventory. That was how the stockings shown below were uncovered.  All in all, I feel that the whole outfit from top to bottom kinda flow yet look scatter-y at the same time… I kinda like it! Hope you do too! <3

Ps. In lieu with the fact that I watched HP6 today, the song of the day shall be this. =P

July 16, 2009

I had this prepared yesterday but I was too lazy to post it so here goes. While picking up the leg braces newreem featured at her blog, I found apart from the funky stuff avaliable, rotton toe also have some cute clothing avaliable at extremely affordable prices. One of the items i fell in love with was the ringmaster vest. I have to say, I have an obsession with vests and this one is definitely a keeper! The hair flowers were featured on Uma’s blog yesterday and I couldn’t resist picking a few myself! The high wasit skirt is an old find from Kenzie and co. I like the colour, it being a duller shade of yellow. Nil tped me to the dollarbie branch of chuchulet the other day where i went crazy. The tribal looking sandals are just adorable and complements the v9 skintone and outfit perfectly.  Hope you enjoy this look! Have a happy thursday! <3

Currently: Loving this mix of 2 korean song!
