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

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

Her Royal Blue-ness

May 11, 2009

First and foremost, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mummys or mummys-soon-to-be out there! Muacks! <3

I’m so happy Marni is finally releasing the spring collection of Royal Blue! I’ve been one of those lusting after the collection after looking at the endless teasers she was posting on plurk. Yea the teasers have been tortuous hahaz. I was absolutely blown away by the Spring Bum *hehehez this name is cute too* skirt from this new collection. The entire skirt is filled with beautifully scrulpted flowers. One word that left hanging on my mouth when I tried it was a simple wow! The royal blue collection would be avaliable in stores sometime soon so keep an eye on the blog or SOM :) Another highlight of the week would be the return of Sayuri Cremorne. Sugarcube is bustling with activity again! XD The top of the not square dress (which has a pretty bubble skirt not shown below), seem to flow perfectly with the royal blue skirt or rather bum *hehehez*. The bangle is one I grabbed after reading dearest Nil’s blog. I think that Naith Smit should create more jewellery, which he obviously has a huge talent for :)  A word of caution to anyone buying it, the bangle is no copy and adjusted to fit men wrist. Its fairly simple to shrink it to fit the female AV but do be careful cause its like no copy? hehez. Even so, the bangle is worth the trouble.

Speaking about dearest Nil Giha, who has been like MIA in SL for the past 3 weeks…. Bugsie! I miss you and your randomness. Come back from RL when  you can okie! I dun care if you have to make me hungry at 3am again to come back XD. Hope you are well! Muacks! Lurve ya! <3

Between her 4th breakup with Dan (stoopid) Humphrey, the betrayal from her “favourite”/slut teacher and that twisted family complications, I figured Queen S needs some show time. This style im inspired by is S’s, aka the bad girl, usual school uniform. Gives me an excuse to join archiya’s challenge and wear that same damn shirt as everyone else.

On to the outfit itself, there are some new items, others old. Coco is a store popping up everywhere. My praises remains in sync with the rest of the fashion community – simply marvelous. I’m using the group gift belt here which is seems to be the focus of the entire outfit; the chic/stunning factor. Royal Blue jeans. OMG, i re-discovered it in my inventory? After stashing it at one side after the 10L sale last month, I re-fell in love with it and its still glued to my Sl butt. (maybe cause i haven drag myself to armidi yet but tt’s another point entirely *_* ) Why am i wearing jeans for a school outfit? hahaz dun ask. I dressed my AV at 1 am yesterday and must have been blind and thought Serena was wearing jeans :P Jeans looks cool too, especially with such a well textured pair. The outfit is finished with a little ribbon hair accessory on the top, giving it a cute edge. This is originally a sock attachment from a Kuri Style outfit, repositioned and reattached at the mouth.

Signing off the usual GG way, xoxo… or maybe not?

I got sick of dressing winter. So this one is for SEA and Aussie friends out there :D

I was just hanging out in Reiko’s backyard the other day, but I looked like I’m dress for a summer party on the beach :P Hahaz. I’m like forever overdressed for occasions in SL. Nothing much to write since my brain seem dead today.  As usual, lots of layering in this outfit. I wish LL would give us one more top and bottom clothing layers. It would be Layering Heaven! ( * _ * )
