Spring Is (Almost) Here! Spring Casual Look With Mon Tissu

2014.3.2 mon tissu spring look_002

It’s still cold outside on most days but recently I am noticing that on some sunny days, the temperature is not as low as it had been and we get spasms of warmer weather.  We are not there yet but spring is definitely coming closer!

Today, it was one of those nice sunny days and I decided to take my pet owl out to the park after I have done my rounds with my dogs.  He is still only six months old and he is getting used to my dogs but still not quite comfortable when they get too close.  So I still have to take them out separately just so that my owl doesn’t get too nervous with the excited dogs.  He is a tiny owl and won’t grow any bigger and it’s really funny to watch him go very thin when he sees a big dog such as a Labrador or a Golden Retriever because he is afraid but when he sees small dogs like Chiwawas, he spreads his wings out as much as he can, opens his already big eyes even bigger and tries to threaten the Chiwawas, who usually don’t even care that my tiny owl is doing his best to scare them.

With spring so close, I just felt like getting my wardrobe ready for the pleasant season also so I dropped by at one of the stores I liked very much for high quality casual fashion, mon tissu.  The store had many outfits that got my attention but for today, I decided that I wanted to style with lots of flowers!  So I made a look using lots of pretty spring colours and lots of flowers to celebrate the arrival of my favorite season.

I am hoping that very soon, I will be able to go to the park with all four of us (me, two dogs and my owl) wearing something similarly fun. :)

Casual In Style – Vero Modero, Mei Set

2014.2.20 Vero Modero_Mei Set_005

I like casual looks because they are more comfy in real life and fun to style.  When I came back to SL a month ago, I deleted all the outfit folders I had and I suddenly realized I needed more casual sets that I could quickly change into.

2014.2.20 Vero Modero_Mei Set_004

This was an outfit that was newly released that I found in Vero Modero.  It’s called “Mei Set” and comes in different colour variations but I decided to get the grey set because for some reason, I had already set my mind to wear a coloured hair and I was looking for an outfit that will go with it and still look nice.

2014.2.20 Vero Modero_Mei Set_010

This outfit was exactly what I wanted.  It’s casual, stylish, a little sexy (but not too much) and allows some really fun styling.  Again, I tried not to make it look too girly and cute so I used muted pale purple as the accent colour.

With the coloured wig, I think this look is good for casual parties too.  I hope you like it as much as I do.  :)

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.

2014.2.18 Tres Bear Heartbreak_001e

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!

  • Gown:  Tres Beau, “Heartache” Fushia
  • Jewelry Set:  Kunglers Extra, Walhalla – Silver

Desir ‘Mia Dress’ and Elysium Shiu Skin

Image

I don’t have a photo studio yet so I decided to take a stroll in the beautiful Angel Manor Estate sims and take location shots.

This is a dress that is so elegant and delicate that I almost feel like I am wearing a dress made of feathers.  The vertical lines of this dress give it the simplicity that I like too.

I have mood swings when it comes to fashion and this couple of days, I’ve been extremely attracted to elegant dresses that are simple and don’t come with many parts or components.  The same goes for makeup.  Lately, I am not in the mood to wear lots of strong colours so here, I kept my makeup very simple too.

The skin I am wearing is a new skin from Elysium where creator, Aleida Rhode, made Asian skins for the first time.  It captures the essence of Asian features and I absolutely loved it!  When I started to model, I searched for Asian skin for a very long time but was never able to find one that I liked…until this one!  Congratulations Ale for a great skin launch!

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.

Last Few Days Of Ashraya Project!

sYs Designs, Babylon Mesh Dress (Eclectic Blue) – Ashraya exclusive colour

Ashraya Project will end on Monday, June 4th.  That means there is only five more days to buy the exclusive items donated by the participating designers!  So this will be the time for the last-minute shopping!

So today, I am introducing the Ashraya exclusive item from sYs Designs.

sYs Designs, as most of you will know, is known for the cyber, futuristic couture fashion and they have this very cool mesh dress that is an exclusive colour that is only available at the Ashraya event site.  I just loved the futuristic elegance that this dress has!

And here, I used a very reasonable skin that is sold in a fun, psychedelic Japanese store called Yome Soujo.  The amazing thing is that I am not even wearing any makeup tattoos.  This look can be achieved by wearing the skin alone.  How cool is that?  I wrote a fashion feature about this store in the May issue of BOSL magazine because I really think this is a must-see-store if you like fashion.

Sascha’s Designs Releases La Seine

Sascha’s Designs has a new dress and it’s goooooooorgeous!

Sascha Frangilli, owner and designer of Sascha’s Designs has come up with an absolutely lovely dress for those who love something romantic to wear.

Sascha's Designs, La Seine in Cream

“La Seine” comes in different colours but as always with Sascha’s gowns, you can choose three different skirts, making this a very versatile outfit for your wardrobe.  The set, of course, includes a big long skirt and a slightly shorter skirt with ruffles in the upper part, which I wore here, but you can also choose to wear this outfit as a cocktail dress with a short mini skirt.  The hat I am wearing is also part of the set.

Sascha's Designs, La Seine in Cream worn with Glamorous Accessory Set by Crystal Line

The jewelry set I wore here is a new release from Crystal Line which is colour and texture change.  What I love about this set is that the gem colours are changeable into soft and mellow colours such as the pale pink you see in this picture.

An Exciting Brand New Fashion Brand, Wildchild & Muse

Wildchild & Muse, Nara Gown & Fan

Eliza Wierwight has been in SL business as a well-known furniture creator with her high quality furniture and art pieces.  If you have even been to Frolic Mills’ resident or facilities that he owns, you can see a lot of her creations that decorate the rooms.

Eliza is now expanding her talent to fashion!

I am posting two of her first releases in this blog and the BOSL Fashion Feed as the first blog posts introducing her fantastic fashion creation.

The outfits are mesh based.  But Eliza is attaching regular and/or sculpt prims to create designs that she envisions.  Eliza is a natural with art and you can see this in her outfits as well.  Every outfit she sells always comes with fun and interesting accessory pieces that the wearer can choose to use or not to use.  Some could have hats included or jewelry pieces.  With others, it could be some other objects like this fan I am holding in the pics.

Eliza’s outfits are all art pieces in wearable forms while being a delight to the eyes.  She will be gradually releasing the huge stock of outfits she has already created in an outfit corner she prepared inside her store.  So take this opportunity to take a look at her furniture creations while you are there.  I can promise that you will be deeply impressed with the attention to details and quality she achieves.

The gown I wore here is called Nara Gown, which is a name that was taken from an ancient city that actually exists in Japan.  The gown is elegant but also very bold in its design and I was pleasantly surprised at the realistic quality of the ‘obi (sash like belt)’ she has created for this gown.

Wildchild and Muse is a new brand that is definitely worth watching.  Be prepared for some fashion-gasms!

New From Bliss Couture – Gayla Top

Bliss Couture, Gayla Ruffled Top & High Waist Lace Pants

Bliss Couture‘s new release is a lovely top called Gayla which is a ruffled top.  Worn together with the High Waist Lace Pants, it looks like an all-lace body suit with very exaggerated ruffles.  The colour variation is pretty impressive too, so

Here I am wearing the white version which can be accessorized by using so many colours as the point colour but here I used hot pink.  If I use red, I am sure it will look more grown up, sexy and elegant but I wanted to create a more fun look for spring.
