Strolling

Chills run down my spine
As our fingers entwine
And your sighs harmonize with mine
Owl City – If My Heart Was A House

Just wanted to play with some new pieces from RunoRuno (thanks jojo <3). Baggy pants of such style seem to be a rare find in SL, especially one with such awesomely sculpted prims, cute drappy “pockets” and a spot-on shade of khaki. Jojo has indeed outdone herself again. Love the uniqueness of things in her store. I’m also loving how the shirt from Doppelganger Inc.’s Faded Tunic peeks out from the dress, which is again from RunoRuno. The look is fairly simple, but hope you guys like it nonetheless. Hugs and Love to those celebrating Valentine’s Day and Gong Xi Fa Cai to those celebrating Chinese New Year. 7 more minutes!

Just Passing Through

December 2, 2009

This is my temporary home
It’s not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I’m passing through
This is just a stop on the way to where I’m going
I’m not afraid because I know
This is my temporary home

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

Today’s style kinda cross this barrier between the east and the west.  Just like  how harmony is prevalent in all parts of the world, clothes from different ethnic groups blends well too. Here, I’m wearing items which originate from 3 different countries, mainly Japan, America(?) (where did jeans and dresses come from? *tomoyo ponders*) and Russia. It may seem weird on the whole, with a non existent theme throughout. But on closer look, I like how the colours and subtle patterns of the different elements complement and balances each others. The delicate patterns on the Barerose kimono top softens the hard textures of the runoruno undress cocktail dress. The fur cap softens the entire “goth” look, with its colour keeping the outfit from sinking into the “too black” region. The wide cuffs of these jeans and shirt balances the tight “bodice” of the outfit.

Bleh. Someone must cure me of my bad habit of using demos for pictures. The curio skins are too lovely… I should get them soon. Ya, soon…. This one here is breeze, another favourite :)

The (hating LL) Rebel

February 14, 2009

All these not able to log into SL was making me feel rather rebellious. Hence the rather erm “revealing outfit”.. I don’t strut around my grid showing my bra most of the time. Point aside, this cupcakes bra was simply too lovely not to make an outfit for. Not gonna say much as I’m feeling rather anti SL right now… Hope you like the outfit!

Ps. Sorry for the unclear pics. I forgot to change my picture settings when I used the RC for the 1st time yesterday. And I cant log in now for credits or redo them.. sobz :(  why wont suppport portal load on either comp :(

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!
