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

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

Its a Sleepover!

July 5, 2009

Oh yea! What is summer without an all girls sleepover. ehh.. maybe just for me XD The activities normally includes 1. a crazy dress up time and 2. the mandatory movie marathon.  Just drawing your attention to a few items. *pokes* Firstly, the unmatching socks in outfit one are a recent find from DemiDemi. There is a whole wall of socks which are cheap, funky and cute there. Mother Goose is a shop I previously blogged about. I visited the shop yet again the other day and spotted this pack of scarfs for 10L (?) I just adore the simplicity of it and really add a different feel to this outfit in my opinion. Oh, Mother goose is directly beside newreem’s store Duboo so do check it out. Psst, I heard she just released more cute tees <3. On to the 2nd outfit, I gotta say, the notice from sugarcube about its new release came at a perfect timing. I was standing around the studio when I saw the notice for this pair of pants. Next thing I knew, I was standing in the shop buying them. I threw on the pair of checkered slacks from the unreleased Modd G. men line (releasing in a week or so). I was jokingly saying yesterday that it should be called “ah gong” *which stands for grandpa/old men, whichever way you use it* as they look like a pair of pants my late grandpa used to wear. XD They simply look extremely comfy! I totally agree with what Abra said in one of her last posts. Surf Couture definitely win the “SL Fashion” award for creating the best summer basics this year, especially with such an awesome pair of sandals for sale. I craved and bought the N2 Elizabeth skin from blowpop. The freckles are irresistable! Blowpop has a 30% off at its mischief location till the end of today. So if you havn’t got it yet.. get it! No sleepover is complete without some cute stuff toys. The teddy bear from the 1st picture is a one I won from one of those carnival games. Btw, the dogs in the 2nd picture are photoshopped in. The stocks are avaliable on deviant art if anyone’s interested. Just gotta complain a little here: I was gonna include another necklace in the 2nd outfit but poo~ it probably came off when playing with more accessories and I didn’t realise till I was taking credit after I spent like 3 hours editing them. urgh… oh well.. 

That’s all for now! Have a Happy 4th of July! <3<3

*Jumps up and down* I found the short tattered tank from amerie naughty I got eons ago in my invo while searching for tanks. It was love all over again with the “paint splashed” design. Those glasses from yummy are the biggest glasses I ever have in my inventory and they look awesome over-sized for a pair of mom glasses! I just wonder if the degree is right for me? XD I have been a fan of Miabella’s work for a long time. The furniture used below, with the exception of the plants, are from her latest collection, Avery. Gosh, just like her past few sets, I’m yet again blown away with this one. I couldn’t resist building a simple set for it. *TY MODD for helping since I suck at decorating XD* The bed has custom animations built in and though they aren’t used in the pictures below, you gotta take my word for it – they are yummy. The suitcases come in 2 colours, green and pink and in various sizes, close or open, stacked or non-stacked. The open suitcase contain an adorable bunny inside =) *Thankies Mia!* The slippers that decorate my feet are dollarbies from a shop named mother goose. Don’t they look so comfortable and squishy?  <3<3 Tomoyo

Bon Voyage

June 1, 2009

Have been packing for my trip for the last few hours. Gosh, my RL wardrobe is as messy as my SL inventory.. took so long just to pack for a week long trip XD. Not much newness in this outfit, just wanted to play with what I had in my inventory. This look contains items from 2 of my favourite stores, Bare Rose *which I am a total junkie of*, Milk Motion *<3* and Cupcakes. The cupcakes suspender set is one of their really old releases but till now, it remains a favourite of mine. The sequin part of the shirt is a stroke of designing genius. Just wished it came in a seperate layer for mix and matching purposes. Instead of wearing it with the shorts or high waisted skirt it came with, I took the skirt part of the black belted dress, another item from the store so the top and skirt looks like a nice, simple dress together. I wanted to glam up the neckline but was not satisfied with any of the necklaces I had. The collar that came with the Bare Rose Disco outfit thus serve the purpose with slight adjustment. The jacket has been on the feed for so many times that I’m sure many of you may be sick of seeing it. Yet its impossible to deny its awesomeness. I lurve how the jacket is one of its kind on the grid, design wise. Its simply different and something never done before. Milk Motion is a store which has been churning out releases which are not only stunning, but different. This simply reflects the much creativity of its awesome owner and designer, Marie Lauridsen. The hair is a gift from Magika during the Keys hunt. It has little butterflies on the back of the pretty pony tail. Cuteness! O_O What’s a traveller without a lugagge. This vintage luggage from Argyle completed the look. The stickers on the front of the luggage enable me to pass off as a frequent traveller. Hehez. Maybe I’ll get a better seat? XD ok just kidding hahaz..

Sayonnara for now! In the words of my good friend cayce newell *rofl she’s gonna kill me for this if she ever reads this post XD*, Be good! ~~

A Whole New World

May 23, 2009

… A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming …

Meh, I’m just in a disney mood today after hearing an awesome piano rendition of the Aladdin song. A whole new world.. ahh or a whole new shop XD. If you havn’t heard, So Many Styles have moved their mainshop and its official opening is this sunday. Irie Campese is a total sweetie and shared with me some of her new goodies that are going to be released on sunday, including this beautiful red blouse shown below. <3 Her signature shading and detailing are evident and consistent on her new releases. Fans of her earlier works will probably be won over by this new collection too. Definitely worth a trip during our sunday shopping madness. The hair is a new release by Junwave and Lovesoul. I’m absolutely in love with it and the texture is simply wonderful. When i zoomed I could see fine strands.. O_O so kudos for the realistic texture. The inner shirt is from the shop [insert cool name] owned by Malte ANTFARM.  Its a guy shop but the shirt is a perfect fit for us females as well. I did mod the shirt a little and shortened the sleeves to fit within the blouse. In preparation for summer, the green and yellow cutesy skirt from cupcakes protected by tush teehee.  The ring is from a camping chair in U&R dogs. Wow the 30 mins spent there was entirely worth it. This accessory is a set of 3 rings. Well, not only is each of the ring unique in its own merits and all 3 have the ability harmonise perfectly together, the stone is colour changing. I’m not sure how long the prize will be avaliable so hurry down before its gone! XD

晴朗的天空

March 26, 2009

I’m feeling abit blah blah. Instead of writing a typical blog entry, I thought I share the song that inspired this outfit…

天空是晴朗的
tian kong shi qing lang de
The sky is sunny and cloudless

夢想燃燒著快樂
meng xiang ran shao zhe kuai le
Dreams are kindling happiness

相信我和你是最酷的
xiang xin wo he ni shi zui ku de
(I) believe that me and you are the coolest

汗水痛快流著
han shui tong kuai liu zhe
Sweats are flowing merrily

勇氣讓愛閃亮著
yong qi rang ai shan liang zhe
Bravely, let the love shine

勇敢不怕累
yong gan bu pa lei
The brave is not scared of being tired

直到我們都笑了
zhi dao wo men dou xiao le
Until we both smile

Indecisive

March 6, 2009

Well a second post for the day cause I cant decide which accessories go best with this outfit. Well, I could emphasize on my fashion philosophy that the accessories MAKE the outfit. The post before was more of the “prissy” look, with the tweed jacket and such. Here, a change of accessories make the outfit more suitable for a day by the country. This combination here is beckoning me to spend an SL-day at the stables. *ooh SL horses are cute..*

The riding boots, which I cant remember if I blogged about before is another great are from …*pauses*… I don;t know where cause there’s no lm in the folder *wails*. If anyone recignise them please leave a comment? I love the slouchy feeling in this boots. Makes them look really comfortable for my SL-feet. The rosary was blogged by Ange a few days ago. I was lucky enough for the board to throw me a wildcard when I was shopping there the other day. Well its time for this girl’s bedtime. Have a great day! <3

Let’s Shop in Style

March 5, 2009

Just a casual look which I was sporting while hopping round the grid today. From the shorts to the necklace, this is exactly something I would wear in RL.  In fact, I’m wearing something like this while typing this post :P

MNK is another Japanese store I discovered from creator’s pavilion *Gosh I love those events*. Their clothes are really versatile and feminine, perfect for this girly girl. For 90L i got like 4 options for these striped pants- a pair of shorts (which I’m wearing here), a pair of pants, and a pair of half – pants. The tableau sim which was recently reopened is simply bursting with colours, seemingly welcoming our bright and colourful spring yay! This necklace is from (yummy), the accessories shop owned by Nylon Pinkey located in Tableau. Oh gosh, I am simply attracted to the details in this necklace. From the lovely charms to the carefully done beads… its really the sort of necklaces I love to don on in RL. A closer look of the necklace is shown in the 2nd picture below. The inner shirt is a new release from the wonderful M&R cupcakes. Mimi and Rosemary never disappoint me in their new releases. *whee!* The lace on this particular top seem to remind me of the “itchy” yet lovely spagetti strips i bought from Esprit a few years back. Aren’t you glad that fashion is not a “pain” in SL? <3<3
