Blessings In My Life – Vero Modero, So Serious Dress

2014.3.9 VERO MODERO_Eagle_001

About a month ago, I was blessed to have a 5 months old baby owl come into my life which, I must admit, threw my life into another animal frenzy…but surely a very happy one for that matter.

I have always had an admiration for raptors, or birds of prey, ever since I had a falcon follow me flying right close to me one day when I was riding my motorcycle alone in the mountains of Japan.  I turned my head while riding and my eyes met his.  Of course there was no words, but I was 100% sure we had a silent ‘connection’ at that moment. He flew along me for quite some distance and when he finally parted to go his way, he looked at me once more as if to say goodbye.  It was truly a magical moment I will never forget and ever since that day, I have developed this special admiration and love towards these amazing creatures.

OK, my owl, Popo, is not EXACTLY a falcon.  He is only about 20 cm tall (a little over half a feet) and he is hardly as fierce-looking as a falcon.  I must say, he is more comical and he makes me laugh just looking at him because of his big round eyes that make him look as if he is always surprised.  And more than anything he is a blessing.  When I take him to the park for a stroll, he makes everybody happy.  I think he has that special power. 🙂

So when I saw a notice in my group about a new release from Vero Modero that had an eagle printed on the entire dress, I simply dropped everything I was doing and 20 seconds later, I was already in the store, ready to surrender my wallet to this amazing outfit.

The bag I have here was another timely blessing!  Right after I styled this with a black shoulder bag, my great friend Kimmera Madison, owner and creator of Tres Beau, sent this bag to me as a gift.  She made this one-of-a-kind Pikachu bag for me and as you can see, it even comes with a label that says “Kay”!  Thank you, Kimmera, for this cute bag!  I just love it! ❤

I thank all the wonderful blessings I have the pleasure of encountering in my life.  🙂

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 Brand New Store From The Designer Of Sweetest Goodbye!

I wonder if you remember a store that had really great quality mainly in casual wear called “Sweetest Goodbye”?  I was very sad when the owner and designer of this store contacted me to tell me that she decided to close her store due to busy RL.

But she’s back!  And not only back, she is coming up with even better quality items that is definitely going to make this store a place you need to watch!

A high fashion casual look created using monso's My Yagu Jacket

Morphine Janick, once designer of Sweetest Goodbye is back with a brand new store called monso!  She cleared out all her creations with her earlier store and has come back with two amazing quality mesh items.  The store is still very small with very few items but keep her on your watch list because, I know, she will soon be filling this store with amazing items just like she did with her old store.

So here, I wore her second release, My Yagu Jacket in white.  There are five colour variations available and in each folder you buy you will get a variation of sizes raging from XS to XL due to the difficulty of resizing or editing mesh items.  Just look at the quality of her texture!  Simply amazing!

Here, I also used a pair of shin boots I bought at League some time ago.  These are not a new release but I have always treasured this in my inventory because of its flexibility.  You can change the colour of these boots to any shade you want and each boot part that make up the boots design is changeable too.  In other words, you can practically create your own unique design and match it with what you are wearing.

Welcome back, Morphine!  And I’ll be looking forward to seeing some great stuff from you!

A Sweet Casual Style With A Retro Look

I was walking around the Kensington sim in London, England and came across this really nice store called “Gbberish.” It had casual outfits that had a nostalgic look and had retro-looking furniture displayed as well. It even had footwear! The whole atmosphere of the store was so befitting to the British scenery, looking like a store I might find in Nottingham.

This Kensington sim, by the way, is also a sim you must visit if you hadn’t yet. You will find the Knights Bridge Metro station and buildings so well made with art deco bars and beautiful gardens atop buildings. So it’s worth strolling around and looking around. You will sure have a great experience.

Anyway… here are the two outfits I got at “Gbberish.” The first one, “Audrey’s Attic Puff Dress in Vintage Roses” is a short dress with a lovely texture of roses with that antique feel to it which comes with short gloves as well as long ones. But I liked the sweet short gloves to go with this one. I matched it with a similarly retro looking hair style from “Magika.” It’s a cute two-bun look and came with a black hair band with a ribbon on the side. So I edited the hair and changed the colour of the hair band to match the dress.

I also chose a cute looking pair of shoes from “Shiny Things.” I liked the retro look of this pair that fit the outfit perfectly. But for jewelries, I decided to go with the red/brownish colour in the dress instead of making everything green.

Gbberish – Audrey’s Attic Puff Dress (Vintage Roses)

Outfit: Gbberish, Audrey’s Attic Puff Dress (Vintage Roses)
Shoes: Shiny Things, Mary Geos (spring green)
Necklace & Earrings: Lucas Lameth Fashion Jewel, Han Hana Necklace & Earrings Set (violet/red silver)
Hair: Magika, Betty (black & maroon)
Skin: Minnu, MMS-LondonFair, makeup 8b

The second outfit is a bit more casual but nonetheless sweet with a retro feel like the first one. It comes with this aqua coloured socks and also a bordeau coloured pair but I chose to wear the aqua one with this ankle boots which I also found in the same store.

The boots came in six colours and had really nice “different” colours such as “Bubble gum.” I just loved the whole taste that gave me a somewhat nostalgic memory of my childhood, not that I was actually wearing something like this.

With all outfits from “Gbberish”, I think you can really have fun matching them up with various accessories with various colours. I’m already trying out different looks myself!

Gbberish – One Love Knitted Dress (Honeysuckle)

Outfit (including socks): Gbberish, One Love Knitted Dress (Honeysuckle)
Ankle Boots: Gbberish, Candy Shop Boots (Choco)
Necklace: Swallowtail Designs, Jupiter Necklace (red)
Bracelet: Swallowtail Designs, Volume Bracelet (red)
Hair: R’s Hair Style, “Kay” (black)
Skin: same as above

Usually I never post pics of the stores but this time, the atmosphere of the store was so nice that I decided to take a snapshot and post it here.


And here is a link to Kensington, London. Enjoy!!

Love, Love, Love These Bags & Boots!!

I had a shoes store that I always liked….no…maybe I should say a boots store. It was a store that I came across when I was still quite new to SL and since then had gone back once in a while to check out new items. This is exactly what I did the other day. No notices or information of a new release of any kind but I just decided to check the place out.

AND…..guess what I found!
I collection of seven bright coloured boots, all with matching coloured shoulder bags!!
And the bags looked great too! Well, of course, the boots were great too but after all, boots was this place’s strength. But bags too?

They looked awesome! Not just the details but the shape and size was just right for avatars to carry with short straps so the bag part snuggled right underneath your arm. It had bag animations too so the hand will bend as if you were hold these types of shoulder bags in RL. I stood there for a LONG time, wondering which colour I should get, trying to remember all the outfits I have that I might want to use this bag with. “Black is the most versatile….but wait a minute….with all these colours, black? No…..that’s too boring. Oooooooh pink! I LOVE dark pink… wait a minute….that won’t be versatile enough….then….cream???” My brain cells were seriously being over-worked as I stood there thinking which one I should get.

Finally, I said to myself. “Oh damn. I’ll be coming back here anyway every time I wanted another colour to match my outfit. I might as well get them all in a fatpack!” I was so pleased with this decision……until, I saw that there were no fatpacks! I frantically looked all over the place, too sorry to throw my hard made decision out of the window. Still no fatpacks. So I decided to write a notecard to the designer. 😛

The next day, Satomi Masukami, designer for “Fussy”, sent back my notecard with a simple response. “All set. 🙂” That was all I needed to know. I tp’d right away and before I could change my mind and think twice about buying a fatpack, I had already clicked on the fatpack to “buy.” YAY! I got two sets for free buying seven colours for a price of five!! I was soooooooo happy.

And off I went for a shoot. I decided to match up a “League” Leather Jacket that comes in three length. The one I am wearing in the pics is the middle length. The short one is VERY short and the long one goes down to just above your belly button. I also wore this cute shorts I found in “League” too. In fact, the jacket was given to me to wear for a show I will be walking in very soon (Feb. 7!!), but I tp’d to the store and found this pair of shorts. It has a micro mini skirt and this shorts in the set but I fell in love with the angel wings printed on my behind. 😛 Ok, ok, maybe I’m the only one that thought my “behind” looked cute, but that’s actually how I felt when I wore this.

I also matched a casual necklace and earrings from “Yukirei Accessories.” This is a Japanese store and I must say, I love the details that Japanese jewelry creators have especially on items such as these. And for the amount of work put into them, they are usually very reasonably priced.

Oh I forgot to mention that the boots and bags come in black, brown, blue, pink, purple, cream and red. Seven in all. And the one I am showing you here is the pink one.

A Winter Casual

I came across a store called “Twisted & Spoiled” during my job as a model and got hooked with this outfit set which I am wearing a lot lately when I spend those easy days with no parties and no special occasions where I have to dress up.

The set is called “Snuggle Me In White” and it comes with this sweet knitted cap I am wearing and a pair of knee high socks. I have to admit, I didn’t buy this set as it was given to me for an event in which I had to model wearing this, but I liked it so much that I decided to tp to this store with the LM that was in the folder.

There I found these lovely pair of boots. It comes in a black pair and a white pair and of course, I had to buy both. But this had been one of my best decisions because since then, both the black and the white pairs have been used so much! They match short skirts, jeans, shorts….almost anything casual and allows me to create a “winter casual look” the moment they rez.

I have a pair of similar boots in RL and I had been loving it as they are so warm and so comfy to walk in. Maybe my love of these RL boots is making me a bit biased but these two pairs of identical boots, aside from the colours, have been my “biggest hits of the season” as far as casual wear is concerned.

Earrings I wore here are also from the same store and colour changing. It has a necklace and bracelet in the set but since I have a high neck collar with this sweater and ruffled sleeves, I only wore the earrings.

I like this all white look also as it reminds me of a winter bunny. 🙂

Latex Fashion: Elixir

Elixir is a latex store. So initially I had an image of catsuits, kinky outfits….the usually stuff when you hear “latex.” But……how I was wrong! Elixir designer, Khorus Magne, designer and owner of Elixir Fashion said when she thought of starting an outfit store, she couldn’t find any good and fashionable latex outfits and SL, so she decided to make her own. The result was a line of very fashionable latex outfits that are sold in parts and components. In other words, you can buy different pieces to combine and make your own style. She also has some set items in her store which you can buy and wear without having to worry over what to match them with what, if that is what you prefer.

All parts come in so many different colours and recently, she added a leopard texture as well. Here, I have worn a leopard/black top with a black shorts called “cheek shorts.” I am also showing a black raincoat which will look great with non-latex outfits too like jeans. Although the one I have here is solid colour in black, she also has many fun colours as well as sheer coloured ones.

The boots I wore here are also from Elixir. I use this pair quite often in fact, matching them with all sorts of outfits. I love the soft texture and shape as well as the simplicity of it.

This hair is worth a mention too. It’s from that small store that I like in a Japan sim and, as with others in this store that have hats or hair bands, the hair band is texture changing. And all you have to do is click on it. I also think the style is cool too.

From Beauty Avatar’s New Collection

Recently I was in a show for Beauty Avatar where we showed the new collection that are now in the store. I have to say, I did not wear the outfit I am going to post about today. But looking at the other models, I fell in love with this one. So ignoring what I wore myself, I went out to get the same outfit that was worn by another model. It’s not too “wintery” I have to admit. But it was so sweet and stylish that I made myself a good excuse. “It’s not REALLY cold in SL, so who cares?” This was funny as I usually think even if it’s not cold, it’s good to have seasonality in SL. So I would wear a coat or winter fashion. But when I actually want something that is contradictory to my belief, I make convenient excuses. 😛 Oh well, don’t we all?

So here it is. “Mawen 05” by aida Ewing of Beauty Avatar.

It comes in different colours but this red one was so intriguing maybe because I love red myself. It has that active, positive look. It goes well with active looking boots, which I feel might go better than a very feminine looking pair of shoes to emphasize that active look. I think this will go great with any long or short hair rather than a mid range length. I use short hair a lot, so this time, I tried it with long hair. This one is from R’s Style. A very small Japanese store that is not yet known in the non-Japanese sector of SL, but certainly worth checking out. After all, don’t we all want hair that not many people know about? The turban that wraps the hair is texture changing by simply clicking on it. So you can easily match it with the outfits you are wearing. They also come in various sizes. So you won’t have to struggle to stretch or shrink the hair by editing it yourself (you can tell, I hate editing).

The skin I used here is a skin I had been waiting for! InZane Body Art skins. I blogged about this new skin store when InZane only had goth skins. I fell in love immediately at how she was able to bring contour to goth skins. It’s not easy to draw contour with white skin. Since then, I had been waiting for her to launch her regular skins. If they looked that great in goth skins, they must be gorgeous with regular skins. And gorgeous they were! She now has a range from pale to chocolate tone skins. Something for everybody. As imagined, she had great contour for the body and great faces. I particularly like her eye brows and eyes. InZane skins have now become one of my favorite skins for sure.

And last but not least, these boots are a new release from Elixir. Elixir is a latex store but with a lot of style and fashion sense. But even if you’re not a latex fan, these boots are worth checking out. There is also a red pair of boots that was launched at the same time. I decided to use the black one as too much red will lose the impact and I wanted a bit more black. I just love the soft and loose look of these boots! I must show the cool latex items they have too. So much I want to show and so little time!

Oh and one more thing. The necklace and earrings are from the Lovable Hearts set from Vincenca Rosca Jewellery, which I already blogged about. But these are the red ones that is in the same set. In my previous blog post, I showed the pink sets. Yes, you get both for one price!

Phew. I had been a bit busy this past week but I had so much to show today!
