A “Heartbreak” I Love!

2014.2.18 Tres Bear Heartbreak_005

Nobody likes a heartbreak, but this is one “Heartbreak” that I knowwwww most women will welcome with open arms!

Tres Beau by designer Kimmera Madison released “Heartbreak” on Valentine’s Day.  But you can see that this is not a gown that is so Valentine-ish that it can only be worn on February 14th.  It looks amazing on any other day of the year!

It comes in three colours; red, fuscia and off-white but I chose this fuscia one because it is not easy to find a nice ‘pink’ gown.  I think fuscia is a colour that can look very stylish but since it’s a strong colour, if you go in the wrong direction, you can end up looking either too childish, too girly or ‘a bit too much’.  If you look closely, the pink used in this gown is not a flat one tone of pink.  It’s actually a mix of different tones and that’s what gives this gown a deeper and sophisticated look.

I used a multi-pale coloured jewelry set by Kunglers Extra just to break the pink a bit while adding some accent to the otherwise total fuscia look.  I also wanted to avoid the look being too girly so I chose to go with a smokey makeup with a slight tint of pink for the eyes and a very pale pink for the lips.

Overall, I’m very happy with the result and I think I was able to make the exact look that I was going after.  Now I’m happy and I can go back to sipping my favorite coffee!

Eshi Otawara New Release – Radiant

Eshi Otawara, Radiant in Red

This month, we see a new release from Eshi Otawara called “Radiant.”  There are colour variations that are made available but here I am wearing it in red.  Some prims that make up the outfit are scripted so that the texture moves as if it has a gleam adding a very unique and interesting feel to the entire dress.

The hat worn here is part of the outfit set and together with the dress, it creates a very lovely and avant-garde look.

Great Spring/Summer Necklace from Finesmith Jewelry

Finesmith Jewelry "Mediterranean"

Finesmith Jewelry’s creator, yula Finesmith is releasing a series of jewelry that has lovely colours which will be really nice to style with the colourful spring/summer fashion!

I welcome these releases with excitement as I love to style using colours and by thinking what colours will work well together.  These chunky and colourful jewelry items will be a really nice add when I want that colour impact.

Each necklace has a name given that derives from the colour image.  And the one I have in the pic is called “Mediterranean”.  I am sure yula was thinking about the out-of-the-world lovely turquoise hue of colours that the Mediterranean Sea has when she named this.

Have You Checked Out The Cool New Jumpsuits From Xanadu?

Xanadu's latest release, Jumpsuits "Kenya"

If not, you must!  I saw this outfit posted by Xanadu on her flickr page where she posted a pic of this outfit as a preview and omg…I fell in love! <3

So here I am, blogging “one” of the four I now have in my inventory.  Xanadu Damiano released this jumpsuits in so many variation that it made decision making a very hard job.  They vary not only in colour but also in the print design and theme so you can imagine what a headache it was to pick just one!

A spring look using Xanadu's jumpsuit "Kenya"

Did I say retail therapy works to relieve any stress/hunger/irritation/frustration/whatever-symptom-you-may-have?  So here it is, Xanadu JumpsuitKenya“, which is the one with a tiger animal print.  It’s just so cool and yet it can look really stylish!

It comes with a narrow belt that uses the same fabric but here, I wanted to create a spring fashion, so I replaced it with a pale olive-green sash that matched the colour of my hat.  Then completed the look with a yellow bag as an accent and makeup with green eye shadow.

A fun make up using green eye shadow

But of course you can wear this without any changes also.  Both the top and bottom are mesh so you will need Linden Lab’s official Viewer 2 or any third-party viewers available that works with mesh to see it.

Forever Yours by My Precious

Agnes Finney's My Precious, Forever Yours

Forever yours…what a romantic phrase this is.  And it’s not just a phrase of words.  It is the name of a new gown that was released by Agnes Finney’s My Precious in February which is, of course, the month of romance.

To style this lovely gown, I used a similarly sweet makeup tattoo that is available from Noya Designs that has a version with a beauty mark and I also used a gorgeous jewelry set from Virtual Impressions that use diamonds and rubies, intertwined into a rich and lovely design motif.

VoguE – Steffi Gown

I know some countries have Boxing Day, but now that Christmas is over, I am finally finding some time to post about a beautiful gown from VoguE.  I had taken pictures of these about 2 weeks ago, but I had something that happened in RL that got in the way and I wasn’t able to post them earlier.

This is a gown that was released from VoguE very recently and I loved the graduation of the two colours on the skirt.  Zalyn Bailey, who is the owner and the designer of VoguE, has prepared many colour variations which all have this feature with different colour combinations.  And the all-ruffled top is just so cute!

I also liked how it has this skirt that is completely long from the back and side views, and yet, when you look at it from the front, it looks like a sexy mini dress.

VoguE – Steffi Gown (Royal Blue)

VoguE also has a series of Glitter Makeup in tattoo layers which I am totally in love with.  Although it’s called “Glitter Makeup”, it’s not too glittery and each glitter eye-shadow colour comes with 4 different shades of lipstick, which makes it very “easy to use.”
