Spicing up the Orange

May 28, 2009

Ohaiyo!

The 4 looks below revolves around the central theme of orange using 2 items – the Kavi Top from zaara and Sugarcube’s latest release, the Goldfish dress. I knew I needed to blog Sayuri’s latest release when I laid my eyes on it. The dress top is textured beautifully in lushful oriental patterns and the bottom is fill of creativity, from the uneven hems to the gradient colours of the prim. This dress is a necessity in every fashionista’s wardrobe I’ll say. Zaara is having a sale which ends on the 1st of june. It was by a dumb stroke of luck that I chose to get the orange top and it matches perfectly with the sugarcube dress skirt as seen in the 4th look.

The 1st look is a rather eccentric one, as a fabulous Nil put it. I was going crazy with accessories, adding necklaces, bangles and one earring. ^^ The ribbon from royal blue, which i shrank here, gave the outfit its crazy touch. Plus a milk carton which says “Man Killer” (Its the direct translation of the chinese words on it :O), I think I’m all dressed up for a crazy day at the carnival. Pity the RFL carnival is already over. I kinda miss the awesome rides and the funs hehez. Candle Swords released 2 new pose packs at her shop Pretzel*Poses. These pose packs are not as wild as her last few but still retain the funky and fun element which her shop is known for. The 2nd look was meant to be a cross between surfer girl and extravagance. The sugar cube dress came with longer and shirter pants and to my delight, the top and the short pants together make a perfect swimsuit. Modd *hugs* shared with me a jacket she completed yesterday and its simply awesome! I’m so proud of her and what she has been accomplishing the past few months. She has been improving so much. The collar of this jacket is wondrous and the addition of a ribbon to the front gave its girly touch. Rather than the usual straw heads linked to beach looks, I chose this rather glamourous large hat seem like one right out of the closet of Blair waldorf ^^ The bag is from ami*s, a store which I’ve been wanting to blog for a while but never had the chance to. The shop offers a selection of cute and cheap bad and the one shown below is only 50L and comes with cute sunglasses and magazines on the inside. The skin shown in this look is Hope by Tuli, an unreleased skin shared with the group. If you havn’t joined Tuli’s group, now is the time to do so. The 250L joining fee is extremely worth it as Tuli pampers her memebers with gifts almost every few weeks. I’ve never really worn Tuli’s skins as they never seem to fit me well. But this latest line fit my shape like a glove and won me over completely. I absolutely love those lips shading and the slightly pointy sides. Plus the thin eyeliner at the top eyelid, whee! I also kinda favour skins with drawn on eye lashes like the one below which is really useful when the hat or sunglasses attaches to nose, removing our prim lashes, which happened below. The 3rd look – Just the dress and a lace vest from Noar for a garden party (?) Kalnins shoes which really matches everything decorated my feet once again. The 4th look, well nothing much to point out.  The hair accessory is from a shop previously featured, E!. Chopsticks in my SL prim hair, a practical accessory especially when there’s no utensils around XD. lmao. Aden reopened and the hair shown below Carrie, is on of the new releases. I love hairs with fringes plus this one, the ponytail and loose hair from the back flow gracefully to the front sides. <3 The eyes are made by my talented friend Nedeko Kohime. Her shop bodyline which is reknowned for their unique ethnic shapes have recently branched out into eyes. The shading on the eyes is flawless. The eyes comes in many shades and definitely worth checking out. On  the side note, Nina and I came to a conclusion someone needs to make another high waisted belt like the maiiki one below which is really useful for hiding the jerky transitions between skirt prims and tops. I’ve been playing with poses the past few days and the pose is one which I’ve created. *Shamless plugin lolx* ZOMG right lolx.

Hope you enjoy the orangey looks below <3

Surf, Sand and Sea

*Takes a deep breath* Alot to gush about today eeps. So here goes..

Miu recently released pairs of shorts that seem perfect for the beach.They simply reminded me of a pair I own in RL from the store Roxy (Its a store from australia specializing in beach wear).  These shorts are a perfect addition to my “comfort wear” closet, a must with the “domokun flu” rampaging around Hbox. *Hehehez don’t ask me what is it, ask the admins LOL* The cardigan is from the shop, E! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories. OMG i <3 modd for tping me to the shop. Its packed with goodies mostly below the 50L price mark. Shown below is the maroon version of the glitter cardigan, something that caught my eyes immediately. The texture is superb and I can’t believe its only 40L. Plus, it comes in all possible layers! Simply a steal. E! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories is also participating in the discovery hunt so do keep a look out for that magnifying glass while you are there. *Hint: Look at the vendors and leave the floors and corners alone =)* One of my favourite shape makers, Carissa Crimson has entered the lashes buisness and all I have to say is “You go girl!” I love the entire set of lashes which are versatile and suitable for daily wear. Worn below is the pair entitles Dangerours *ooh* which caught my eyes immediately cause of its fuller top eyelash compared to the bottom. A big thumbs up for the lashes being one that I can repositioned rather quickly in that Hbox lag. *Thankies cari for them!*

Its from the store *~MM’s~*, which primarily specializes in making belts. The pouch features includes changable textures and it comes with a pelvis and stomach attachment point. The chocolate flower ring is avaliable at a steal from a shop Anya previously blogged about on freestyle. Its so well made and I still can’t believe its only 50L. There are many other rings avaliable at 50L from the shop and some even include hair accessories and necklaces. So do check it out! <3

Anuenue. Oh gosh, the beaded tunic shown below is simply irresistable. If you’re familiar with the Paranakan’s history, you would know that beaded slippers are one of the items a nonya wear to complete her Sarong Kebaya outfit. (psst psst if you are stopping by Malacca in the near future, there is a store there that sells AWESOME custom made beaded shoes). The beading on the anuenue tunic shown below simply remind me of that. I was really drawn to the details on this shirt. It may not be obvious from a far but zooming in, you could see the intrinsic details, from the pattern to the awesome colour combination of blue, red, green, gold, Marea Kirax has provided.

The rest of the outfit was simply put together with a “kawaii” theme in mind.  The chocolates and keychain was from this small shop located at the corner of CIOCCOLATA. Its so hidden that extremely blind people like me could miss it. Thankies Uma, Stokki and Anya for bringing me there! whee! Djunk is a store I read from Gogo’s post. It is a 3 level building with everything free. Yes you read right! Every single thing in the shop is free! Its super awesome for the creator to use 180 prims (Malte Counted!) to provide us with such wodnerful clothing. Thank you! Lastly, the shoes are from 50 flats. I really love the colours of this new set of flats by Ding. They really pop! I love the texture too as it seems to give the shoes a slight shine… That’s it for now! Enjoy your Sunday! <3<3
