New Dress Release from Bliss Couture – ONE

I have two really nice releases from Bliss Couture.

As part one, I am going to introduce the Kelleness Dress which will be released very soon, if not already, which is a really sexy and cute outfit.  I loved this outfit and ended up wearing this for three days straight during which I received more than several IMs from both people I know as well as passers-by who commented on the outfit saying they loved what I was wearing.

The lace gloves in the pics were included in the set.

Three Looks With Gems and Kisses

OK I was stupid. I was trying to create three looks using Gems and Kisses jewelry and only AFTER I created them and took pics did I find out that I had to use an outfit from Gems and Kisses called Fashion Rebel. *sighs*

So I spent so long styling them and taking pics, I decided to post them in my blog. After all, I did have fun styling them and the pics were fun too. 🙂 And it taught me a basic rule…..READ notecards carefully.

So here it goes……

My first look was themed “Queen of Passion.” I used an interesting set from Gems and Kisses called Handcuffs which is a choker and a bracelet set that is using handcuffs as a motif and no, it doesn’t look like BDSM which is what I like about it. I styled it with a bright red gown from Bliss Couture called Izzie Gown in red.

The next theme was “Rave Party.” Here I used Khafra Set in platinum from Gems and Kisses together with Vida in lime from VoguE Style. This outfit comes with a fur collar which is nice in the winter but here, I used the outfit without the fur collar. Since the colour of the outfit is a soft lime green, it works perfectly without the fur for the spring season too.

This was also my first attempt to edit the pic over a real life picture of a party.

The last one was themed “Dark Rebel.” Here I used a choker called Wild Black Choker, also from Gems and Kisses together with Chained Womens Black from RFyre. The RFyre outfit is a cool outfit that has a sculpt collar, which is not used here, and also comes in short sleeves as well as a no-sleeve top. But for this theme, the long sleeves worked the best.

Elegant Pink – Did You Think Pink Was Girly?

OK I admit. I love pink although I don’t necessarily love “girly” fashion. I think pink is a colour that can be used not only as a sweet, cute, girly colour but as an elegant “add-on” colour. It is a magic colour that can be added to many, but my favorite has always been gray and pink. I think this combination is clean, elegant and classy.

However, sometimes this “gray” doesn’t necessarily have to be flat gray.

Here, I tried adding a twist to my favorite colour combination by using a dress that was not really gray but black and white and I think you will all agree with me that it still works as a great “add-on” colour.

The dress I used here is from Atelier La Bubu, which was having a discount sale and I got this sweet outfit for a discounted price of 160L. Atelier La Bubu is a small but attractive store with well made outfits that speaks quality. For example, this dress may not be a unique shape but the skirt has been carefully tailored so that the back side is slightly more long and poofy whereas the front is made to be more flat. As a result, you get a very nice shape of the skirt which is something you don’t get with dresses made with skirts that are made the same 360 degrees.

I added pink by using a fur shrug that Bliss Couture has released, socks and a hot pink shoulder bag which was an important element to this look. Just imagine, if this bag had been a similar soft pink, the whole look will look very blurred and weak in impression. However, by adding this hot pink as a focus or spice, the entire look became much sharper.

I must add that this shrug has been nothing but great for me. While many jackets or coats are longer, this bolero type short length has been more than valuable as I can add it to pants, jeans, skirts, dresses, even long gowns without worrying about what I will wear under it. More importantly, it works with most outfits. 🙂

The pink socks I used here was one that came in a pack of eight colours. What is great about this set is that with eight lovely coloured socks, all you have to pay is 50L! It comes from a Japanese store called PicoPure Charmmy that actually sells a lot of lolita/anime type outfits. I am sure it will make those you like lolita type dresses drool but even if you are not particularly a lolita fashion fan, this set of socks is without doubt, worth investing 50L.

The part I was most indecisive when styling was shoes. I had to try various shades of pink, gray in all types of footwear such as pumps, long boots and ankle boots. But I wasn’t happy with any of the combination until I pulled out this pair of mid-length boots that had a colour that fell in-between pink and gray called Powder Pink. This seemed to work best without stealing focus from the hot pink purse that I used as my focus for this particular look.

To complete this fun but elegant look, I used a new hair released by 69 which is a long (but not too long) natural looking hair with soft waves.

A Sweet Coat From Bliss Couture

Bliss Couture is a store that many people know as a gown store. That was my image too. But the other day, I found this sweet short coat that had a nostalgic feel to it. It looked like a couture coat of the past and I liked it very much!

So I tried to imitate a look with a retro feel and decided to add pink as the second colour. Unless you are going for that crazy and fun psychedelic look that is a burst of colours, it is usually good if you decide on the primary colour and secondary colour. Here it’s green and pink.

So I wore this hair style that had a colour changing hair band from Adored Clothing & Hair and matched it with pink boots from Gbberish. These leggings came with the coat in the same set, but you can also wear jeans or other leggings. Another look I would like to try with this coat would be to wear red leggings and make a green & red look. Maybe I’ll try that next time.

I changed the skin too to one that gives me that pink lip. Not the nude pink that current makeups have but one with that mat pink colour in older fashion shots.
