European Dreams

January 29, 2009

Between Chinese New Year (happy MOOOO year!), assignments and getting addicted to twilight fanficition, i hardly had time or the mood to update last week. Sorry for the delay. While posting, I have a sudden craving to go to europe! hahaz.. and hear british accents :P No offence but I think the Londeners drawls *swoons at robert pattinson:)* has the cutest drawls in the world. *dreamy eyes* Well, they speak perfect-o english hehez. Perhaps that’s the draw? Before I cannot resist the temptation to drown myself in twilight fanfictions again (I’m reading one called Bella Hale which is soo good!), I’ll leave you with an outfit to work your way through the SL shopping streets.. tata!

Fur Cap Love

January 13, 2009

Alrighty guys, I haven’t finished this aoharu sale but have been walking around in this outfit, inspired by the aoharu fur cap, for a few days now… so I thought I share 1st. The fur cap.. what can I say? ITS FINALLY MINE!! YAY!! 2 hrs of search and lots of moaning, sheepie finally located the whereabouts of this little cutie. I saw a cap like this in nu you, aka the taiwan magazine I’m obssess with, a while ago, on thir cover model, vivian hsu (who is a GREAT singer btw) and wanted this added to my virtual closet. I remembered aoharu have a cap like this but didn’t manage to drag myself there till the sale :P

As mentioned, this perfecto cap inspired the rest of the outfit. The magazine showed the hat in a casual light, but I wanted something chic and yet girly at the same time. I found the cupcakes suspender set skirt lying about my inventory and thought it was the perfect skirt for this look. Yes, this skirt has been blogged numerous of times. Yet, I would continue to agree that this perfectly scrupted item is a great basic, high waisted skirt and an essential to our virtual inventory. The yellow belt which came with the set greatly brightens the dull, brown-ish outfit colour. Checks are an “in thing” for this winter season and the domani brown jacket from bijou, a freebie I believe, matched perfectly. I particularly love the cuffs of this set. Can’t believe its a freebie. (A big thankyou to bijou owners here.). The necklace is from shampoo during the footprint hunt and it adds a reminisence feel to the outfit, in theme with the fur cap. Maitreya soho boots and a complementary knee length socks completed the look.

*Remember, the aoharu sale ends this sunday, 17/1 and CSR ends 18/1.

A Hint of Vintage

January 11, 2009

This look isn’t exactly new. Well, its outdated by a couple of days cause i was simply lazy to blog. Again, the inspiration is non other than out little gossip girl vixen, Blair.

Mixing vintage and mordern elements in her clothing has always been Blair’s signiture style. The Ivalde advert gift 7, Yelena, seem perfect for this occasion. I was in love with it the minute i saw it on Ding’s lovely blog. The texture was simply lovely, imitating a glitter-ing coat. The collar, skirt and sleeves are scrulpted increased my love for it tenfolds. I love it when designers make full use of scrulpted prisms and admire them for their ability in making scrupties. I’ve ever read some tutorials about it and trust me, its no easy feat getting that “ball” into such delicate and lovely shapes. This coat would definitely find its way to the closet of Miss Waldorf. Its a pity the coat isn’t avaliable anymore for those who missed it. *sad face*

In order to balance the skirt, I did not wear all the upper arm prims,the base prim and shrunk the lower arm prisms to get a “tight fit”. The skirt contributes to the “mordern” aspect of this look. The “skirt” is a modification of a cupcake dress prim that I did eons ago. In summary what I did was removed the bottom 2 layers of ruffles, move them downwards and fit it nicely to the waist area. Oh, and I shorten the length of the glitch pants provided. I highly recommend good prim modification skills before attempting this feat. Oh, and make sure you have at least 150 prisms avaliable for the skirt to rez :) Ooohh the shoes! I found them in my inventory while searching for boots? Its a old limited freebie from the shop laughing academy I got in my early days… I fell in love with the gold buttons on the sides. Lovely Lovely! I’m not sure if the shop is still around though. Its one of those shops you tp in for nice stuff and never go back again. bleh! shame on this blogger :(

Tomoyo+Waldorf=Tomodorf :P

January 9, 2009

Gossip Girl was the reason I came to SL. The whole bitchy advert CW posted on youtube, “living the SL gossip girl life”, just intrigued me.. though there is too much drama now and its giving me a headache…

I recived this dress from the Canimal Lucky Chair. (Thanks MTC for the tp!) When i put it on, the tie painted on the shirt simply reminded me of blair waldorf, the inspiration of this outfit. One thing about the dress that I really LOVED is the scrupted skirt piece, which framed the bottom/hem of the skirt perfectly w/o any adjustment. The top comes in both jacket and shirt layers, with or w/o tie. The canimal lucky chair is an excellent wait, though it seems to favour C, X, F..
*groans*

I think its a well known fact Blair and Headbands, just like vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce (yummy!), is an excellent combination. Magika is a shop where I go for good quality, cute/anime styles and their Gift for the 2008 PoE hunt was awesome with the dress. This when i got bored searching of waldorf-ish like style and injected my own style into it, creating a look that seem rather cute yet stylish in my opinion. (Psst.. almost every other blog has/is doing some type of gossip girl tribute. I’m sure you can find one to really look like the GG Ladies!)

Vested Up

January 9, 2009

Ok here we go, Blog style picture. Feels rather weird not editing the pic till it become unrecognizable for once.

I decided to dress with my mood of  lethargy yesterday. This style is rather casual, perfect for school type :P Continuing my love for prim jacket is the runoruno vest. This isn’t a new release but yesterday was the only day I had patience to rez her entire store. Lag *groans* You never go wrong with black, or rather this was the only colour avaliable LOL. RunoRuno is one of my favourite stores in SL. It passes the test for affordability, stylish-ness, High Quality with flying colours. I can hardly find anything I would pint-point about this 50L beauty. The texture flow perfectly from the neck prim to the jacket layer to the bottom prim. Fashionistas would also be thrilled by the fact that this vest is provided on all layers. Furthermore, it comes with a sleeve and sleeve-less option, with seperate and unique prisms for both styles. 2 for the price of 1. Forgive me for having nothing but praise for this store.

The shoes are a great find by Jim from this little store House of Curious. This shop mainly sells furnitures but has a small selection of shoes near the back of the store. Can you believe that this pair of beauty is only 10L and is scripted to change 10 colours. Cheap and perfect! Plus it saves inventory space! The double Whoopee!

Ps. Is this format of picture okay? Let me know it comments.. Arigatou! SLurl page will go up soon. Promise!

The TaiTai Way

January 8, 2009

It has been long since I last updated. The new semester has been hectic so far. Well, I’ve been dressed like this for the past 2 days. Hahaz, i feel its rather tai tai-ish (translation: taitai = rich women tt sit around at home), with the bolero over the dress. Well, it looked more tai-tai-ish with the zero style pris but I opted for a detour hair in an attempt to look “younger”.

The Bolero is from our all time favourite store (ok after maitreya and armidi and MMS :P), Ce Cubic Effect. This bolero is a gift from the current winter CSR. (THANKS  JUNZ!) It is simply perfect. I loved how it was able to cover the cupcakes dress fully. Not maybe “jackets” are able to do this and I often find myself moaning about jackets tt appear weird over dresses due to the prim. Thank goodness for prisms. I wish more designers would make nice prim jackets that aren’t that “bulky” though :D The texture is stunning as usual, “conveying” clearly the “knitted texture” of the bolero. A word of warning though, my friend ever complained to me that the bolero arm parts seem too big for her. Though I’m not sure what the reason is, if you don’t like outfits that fit loosely, perhaps the bolero may not be suitable for you?   This said, my opinion is that this bolero is too good to miss. So…if you haven’t started on CSR, hurry!Remember, you have till the 18th of Jan. The dress from M&R cupcakes is one of my favourite from their collection. It was a gift from their opening hunt (Bless the ever generous Mimi and Rosemary..) I love the prim skirt on this particular dress, how it flows. The colour is stunning and right up my alley. Yea, I’m a sucker for dresses that aren’t poofy and aren’t gowns :P

As an ending note, I’ll try to upload at least 2-3 times a week. Ange pointed out I should take more basic unedited shots for the blog hahaz. I’ll get to that tomorrow. For now, I’m off shopping with my kaki (translation: clique)…

Ps. Don’t mind the blog header.. I haven’t come round doing it yet :P

School Bells

January 3, 2009

School Starting and I’m trying to squeeze in as much SL, photoshopping, outings and sleep into the next 2 days. Today’s outift was inspired by the Vivian Hsu Cover of “ai nu sheng Girl” (I am still unsure if its Girl ai nu sheng or ai nu sheng girl. I’m just gonna call it the latter as the former translates to girl loves girl which seems rather wrong to me :P) It’s the typical badgirl/school-like outfit, including the vest, the necessary mini skirt and the tie. The skirt was a dollarbie I picked from Gypsy Soul and its flawless. I just love how the texture flows from the glitch pants to the prim, making the velvet like texture of the skirt appearing smooth and flowy, even at the default SL windlight settings. It’s not so obvious with this pose due to the usual annoying way prims flow when sitting. However, I must say it certainly is the best dollarbie skirt I’ve ever picked. Hurry to get it before it’s gone!

Believe it or not, the first time I actually try to dress “stylish-ly” for winter would be these few months in SL. Looking out of the window, Singapore is once again at its “cool” 30 degrees… Shorts, Jeans, Shirts and Sundresses do the job for me all year round. How I sigh in envy when i hear about the snowy xmas my sl buds had :( This post was definitely inspired by the recent taiwan magazine, “ai nu sheng Girl”, I picked up at Kinokuniya that day. Layers seem to be in again.. too bad I cant apply it in RL lest i suffer a heat stroke :My friends ever ask me if I start sweating looking at the amount of layers my avatar’s wearing? NO LARZ! wah seh… i sitting under the fan lorx.. 

 Here’s an outfit to keep your slbody warm…
