Opposites Attract

June 17, 2009

Hot vs Cold
Sunny vs Gloomy
The Geek vs The Party Girl

That was what came into my mind while putting together this outfit. 

I’ve fallen back to the basic colour, black again with some red and gold to serve as contrast in this outfit. The skirt is a new release from the infamous “This is a Fawn”. (Thanks OMGWTF Barbecue <3) System skirts seem to be “endangered” in the fashion world. This vintage skirt was really well made and I was happy to abandon my prim skirts for a day to wear it. It comes in 5 awesome and striking colours and a definite staple in our summer wardrobes. Well, gotta love freebies. The jacket is a freebie from, Wave and the shirt is part of the freebie bag at v9. I think I’ve been spoilt by designers too much with prim cuffs such that when I see a jacket like this that don’t have any, the skinny and tight ends of the jacket causes my itchy fingers to type cuff and search for a perfect cuff to match the ends. I ended up falling back on an old favourite of mine, from bijou’s domani set which is a freebie avaliable at the shop. The gloves are part of a dress set from the shop kyccie. This shop offers a beautiful selection of girly and formal dresses, one of which I would showcase in my next post. Lastly, the bracelet is by the ever wonderful Naith Smith. The rosary bracelet not only wraps around your hand, it even have a tiny cross sitting in the palm of your hands. O__O << my expression when he told me about it. XD  Lurve it for its originality and creativity! <3

Anyways, ESME MILENA MADE MORE POSES. WOOT!! *smooches* I lurve them so much! Thankies! ZOMG you rock at making poses alright! :D

Voices

*Catches baton from Anya Ohmai with lots of flying kisses*

ZOMG my fashion relay post is coincidently my 50th blog post hahaz. Not much to celebrate but well.. XD

This song, Voice on the Radio by Marie Digby, has been stuck in my head for the past few days. This song though simple, it inspired me to dress in a way to convey the emotions from the song, which hopefully I have done so below. Well, fashion and music are a great match XD. Plus, the fabulous twee glasses, from Anya’s post, greatly facilitated me to do a nerdy rock chick look. Rather than writing a super lengthy post about the outfit,  I’ll just let the lyrics speak for itself …

Last night I fell in love with a stranger
Behind the glasshouse he came
Walking out the backdoor
To a crowd of screaming girls, calling his name
I never saw it coming
The way your voice can make me feel
And I fear, that I am falling
I should be old enough to know
Not to fall in love with the voice on the radio

So here I stand
Fighting what I feel for you
Torn between what reason says
And how I really feel
So here I stand
Wondering what to say to you
Hoping that you feel the same
The same as I do

He’s in a rock band
With a voice like an angel
And eyes of a raven sky
Suddenly I find myself
At twelve years old again . . . dreaming of you
But who am I kidding
To even think that you might see me?
It’s in the stars that girls like me
And boys like you were never meant to be

Edit: You have reached the end of the awesome challenge! <3 I guess I’m the last one. O_O

 To Sassy: Thanks for coming up with such a cool concept sassy and for the opportunity to join in last minute! I had so much fun doing my piece :)

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

Yes the title is from the Lady Gaga’s song, The fame. But no, this isn’t another gaga post :P. Lady Gaga just set me in a dance mood and hence the outfit. I was inspired by Taylor Momsen, aka Jenny Humphrey on Gossip Girl who is normally seen with a leather jeacket thrown over a dress. Of course she sticks to the monotones. On the other hand, I decided to brighten up the outfit which shades of blues.  Being rooted to a sim after 8pm my time due to the lousy internet connection has shorten my shopping time by ALOT. Thus the decision to use some old stuff I found in my inventory – the purple leather jacket from Aoharu (I forgot to pick a black version of this during the sale. Bangs head!), The GiGi Cotoure Dress which has been “missing” in my inventory for the longest time possible, and this pair of maitreya limelight (which is/was a gift on the GG sim i believe). The shades are a new discovery of mine from this little Japnese Store, Elysion Optics. They are scripted! and have the largest amount of functions I’ve seen in a pair of sunglasses. From autosmile to fly booster to anti push, plus the basic functions any scripted glasses have (ability to change the len colour, to rotate/ reposition or resize it. Just Wow. *In my head, Elysion Optics shall be known as the shop that makes wonder glasses :P* The price is rather reasonable at 280L (?) a pair <3 Have a great weekend everyone!

Going Gaga

February 19, 2009

Yea, I mentioned before I don’t walk around the grid with my bra hanging. My bad, i’m such a hypocrite. I blame youtube and Jordan McCoy  for doing such an awesome cover of Lady’s Gaga, Just Dance. Made me just have to do a gaga fan website search and get inspired by the pictures. I’m not really a Gaga fan, just love her songs but not crazy over her. In the music sense, Taylor Swift is my heroine. :P This is my intepretation of the gaga’s style which everyone is crazy about. This is a remix of one of the outfits she wore during her London trip, as seen here plus a few outfits from her concert wardrobe. I wanted to create a club look, built around the Black Clubbing Jacket by Modd.G, my favourite piece out of the review copies that Moddish kindly sent.  My RL friend favourite colour combination seemed to have rubbed off me. Red and Black. Both striking and perfect. The Red Sparkly Bra was an accidental found in my inventory. Love the sparkles in it, perfect for drawing attention in the club. Kinda gaga-ish right? This girl doesn’t seem  to get the notice that gaga prefer straight hair with a ribbon on top. I’m still obssess with maitreya’s new release, which should be all over the feed by now. :P I can’t choose a favourite between them. Pop on a pair of sunglasses, gaga’s signature accessory and the look is complete. Hope you enjoy it!
