I have been putting off this post for quite a while due to sheer laziness. So yay for another triple shot!

Warning, I’m rambling alot in this post XD.

Pididdle released a whole bunch of stuff last week, including new SKINS – the Lien Skins. The lien skins are really soft and yummy and i give it a 2 thumbs up. Indeed, They are a step away from the realistic skins I’m so used to but they have won my heart. I havn’t been able to take this off for days.  Shown below are my 2 favourite skintones, namely the tan and dark. My favourite part of the face would be the lips. I love the soft, feminine slightly glossy lips, stands out. The names of the makeups are really cute :). Shown below are feline and float, my 2 favourites of the line. Feline has a brown eyeshadow while Float has a turquoise eye makeup. Both have nude lips. Well, I’m rather obssess with nudes lips nowadays and Brutus has done a perfect jobs for these. The nude, and slightly pinkish lips doesn’t seem to blend in with the lighter skin tones and there is a clear distinctions between the mouth and the sides. Oh well this sentence sounds weird but I think you got the idea? eh? hahaz. I refuse to show my boobies on the blog so you gotta head down to pididdle to try these skins youself. *smacks* don’t be lazy =P  My only problems is that there seem to be a huge jump in skintones between the dark and tan while tan, pale and natural seem rather close. :( I just wished bru provided something else in between for sunkissed skintone avatars like me. Another thing is that the shading around the boobs seem abit harsh to me(?) Not a problem though, fir it can be easily covered up by clothes. Overall, this is definitely a skin worth checking out!

Along with the new skins, Brutus also released a few stunning casual wear. You could see the DYFIP Shirt and the Tee Dress in the 1st 2 pictures respectively below. Oh i have to talk about the TEE DRESS. I love the texture! It looks like something really comfortable and soft.

For the 1st look, I went with a casual theme, inspired by hanging around too much in Hbox this past week. Uncleweb recently opened. The sculpted vest and key chain is from this store, Skill Normal. Skill Normal was having a 50L sale on all their wallet chains the last week and I picked a few up. This one shown below is pink and has cute stars and bells on its side. I cannot resist. The necklace is by Allep, a really talented designer which specialises in making jeans. I was treated to this necklace he made. *Thank you Allep!* Though simple, the necklace is a beauty in its own merit. The pearl brought a lovely touch to the outfit. The reading glasses,from the Strange Beast shop at creator’s pavilion (Its some where near nikko and gisele if you can’t find it), completed the look. These glasses – well you have to get them. Not only are they nerdily stylish, the lenses and the frames are colour changable.

For the 2nd look, it started from these sandles I’m wearing, a new release from Milk Motion. These shoes have not left my feet for the past few days ever since I laid my hands on it. O_O What attracted me the most to these shoes are the fringes on the front. The pocahontus sandles come in a high and shorter version.  Pididdle is having a hunt till 5th May, well today, and this hair is one of the gifts provided. Era – Poison Oak. I simply loved the random arrangement of leaves on the hair. Seem perfect for a look for the jungle eh? With the flowery, vintage-like tights are from the Nikko Set from Barerose. I feel like I’m really blending in with the forest hahaz. The “vest” is actually the chest piece from the (P-K) Jacket, slightly modded so I can wear it as a stand alone. I hardly credit poses, though I’m starting to now. A great pose relaly “make” the picture. Recently, my friend, Candle Swords, opened a pose shop with a oh so cute name Pretzel*Poses! Typing the shop name is making me hungry. XD  Her shop offers a wide variety of poses. There are “action” ones from the “Pwning you, mortal combat style” pose packs to the slightly mellower ones from the “My Emo Love Song”, one of which is shown below. Well, do check out the store not only due to the fact Candle asked me to model for her O_O *so cools right? hahaz* ,these poses will also definitely brighten up your day and are an awesome addition to the pose stands :)

 The 3rd look probably doesn’t have an link with the rest of this post. Well the only link is cause I’m using a pididdle skin hehez. I just have to fit it in her because…. Paper Cotoure released their spring collection yesterday! The Jasmine Vest is one of my favourite piece from the collection.  I really love the top! I <3 hems of the shirt which gave the whole shirt a dreamy feel to it, well in my opinion anyways.  The tweed pants from Boom is a perfect match. While inventory sorting, (ZOMG right?! I gave up already hahaz) I uncovered this super adorable Hal Hina ribbon lying in some unsorted folder.  I  can’t believe I forgot all about it. I love love love hair accessory and this one gives a girly touch to the whole outfit. The hair is a limited edition opening gift from Uncle Web. Get it before its gone! Here you can spot Milk Motion’s pocahontas slippers on my feet again. I told ya its irresistable ;)

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

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?

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

Colour Mania

February 1, 2009

Its been one week since Dice Beattie dropped me a review pack for her clothing lines: Rolls the Dice and Beats. Sorry for the delay! Yea every other blog has already done a review about it… and its my 1st review ever… *hides in shame*.

Well well, what can I say.. obviously, the clothes were vibrant in colour and just screamed, BRIGHTEN up the GRID :P They are certainly a whole different genre from the clothes I normally wear. I love the funky designs and ideas she inject in her clothes. Dice’s clothes are a breathe of fresh air from the usual fashionista high end cool stuff, I guess. The prices are rather reasonable, ranging from a whooping 50L to 120L Rolls the Dice offers casual clothes while Beats aims for the cotoure community in SL.

Instead of doing a regular review (which can be found here and here), I played around with my favourite items(namely the shades and the tees), resulting in a look which is rather “artsy-frenzy” (in the words of my friend, ariel :P) and another which is more downplayed, brighten up only by those cool shades. <3 Hope you like them!
