La Dulce Vida

I came across this store called La Dulce Vida the other day and found some really nice things that I liked very very much. In one word, the designer of La Dulce Vida, romi Dagostino has lots of colours as well as chic colours, formal gowns as well as more casual wear. I got one formal wear and also something more casual but for today, I wanted to post about the casual one, Judith.

It’s basically a two piece comprised of a top and skirt set. But the top comes in two layers. A shirt layer that is basically a simply black sleaveless shirt and an all lace jacket that is worn over the black shirt. The black colour that is worn underneath will come through the lace worn as a jacket and the whole top looks like a black and white lace top with LOTS of frills (yes I LOVE frills!!). The skirt is a tight black mini skirt, which contrasts with the very feminine looking white top. I love this combination of two contrasting pieces of clothing to make a very nice look that is well balanced.

I wanted shoes that didn’t look very chunky with this so I wore Stiletto Moody‘s Audrey which is a sleek pair of super high heel sandals with nicely shaped “toes” for avatars. I wore black pedicure as well as black nail polish to create a complete black and white look. With this sandal, the skin colour of the feet part has to be matched with the rest of the leg in order for them to look good. Although basic stin tones such as fair, tan, etc., are provided that can be chosen with a menu, you do need to use the custom colour adjustment that is also available in order to get the right skin tone. This process is a pain to be honest but once you find the right skin tone, you can save the shade in user slots available in the menu.

This hair is from a Japanese store called fascino. Recently I’ve been intrigued by the many small hair stores that may not have a wide variety but I get excitement out of finding jewel pieces among them. This store was one that a model friend, Tabata Jewell gave me a lead to and I found many hair that I liked. (Thank you, Tabata!) And to add to the joy, the creator, Sola Meili, was planning a rennovation of her store and had all her hair knocked down in prices to 50% over the entire store. 😀 At the time this was written, it was still ongoing so it may be worth checking the place out now.
