Vero Modero Made An Outfit For Popo!

2014.4.27 VM Popo Set_006

Bouquet Babii of Vero Modero, added an outfit with Popo on it in her new release called “SS Top Sets” that comes with jeans leggings.  There are 5 variations…ones with a panther, 2 variations with cats, a zebra and finally one with Popo!  So this set is called “Owl Popo”.  😀

2014.4.27 VM Popo Set_001

I really wish I had this set in real life!  I would so wear this!

I brought Popo to the screen and was showing him but he started to poke my screen with his beak >.<  How disrespecting of him!  He needs to learn manners.

And Kim Rongyu, my SL friend and model, gave me this in-world Popo!  He will  hunt, fly off and come back and he can even go searching for little insects he can eat.  🙂  His movements are so real so the creator must have really studied the movements of these birds.  She has other birds too and I liked this owl so much that I went to her store later and bought a falcon also!  But the falcon was a bit too big to sit on my shoulder so this little owl is just the right size for this.  🙂  Thank you, Kim!  ❤

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.  🙂

Cool Leather Jackets From VoguE – Part 2

2014.2.1 VoguE Tame Print Leather Jacket (white) 1_003edit

This is part 2 of my cool leather jacket posts.  This leather jacket is also from VoguE but a lot more casual and yet still very fashionable.  I would so wear this in real life!  You can match it with jeans, other pants, or even with a pencil skirt.  Again, it comes in many colour variation so if you like the style, it’s worth checking out the other colours in the store.

2014.2.1 VoguE Tame Print Leather Jacket (white) 1_002edit

Today, I wanted to make a more casual style but something that is good enough to be worn when I’m meeting some people on business.  I matched a leather mini skirt and loose boots from Maitreya but also wore thigh high socks from LaVie because it’s still a bit cold.

I also found this patent red tote bag from Belgravia.  I almost bought a very similar bag in exactly the same colour from Bruno Magli in real life last summer but for some reason, I didn’t.  I regret it now so I bought this in Second Life!  (Damn…why didn’t I buy it in real life…sob)

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! ❤

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.

Unique Designs From Finesmith Jewelry For A Fun Look

The latest release from Finesmith Jewelry is a very avant garde set called “O Collection 03” which combines gems and metal to create a very unique design. Of course, you don’t have to buy all three pieces as a set and you can buy all the pieces separately or use it as a complete set. Here I used all three: necklace, bracelet and earrings but wore only one of the bracelets on one wrist instead of both right and left wrists. The gems are colour change, allowing the set to be used with different coloured outfits.

Finesmith Jewelry – O Collection 03

The jewelry set is really amazing but because of the impact it has, it can clash with a likewise impactful outfit and end up being a bit too much. So I chose to wear something modern and sharp, while not being too “loud”.

The boots I chose are from the latest collection from Paper Couture and although these boots do also have some impact, it is far enough from the jewelry pieces not to interfere too much and I like how it adds some fun to the entire look.

The short pants are from Miamai and it comes with a micro short version, a slightly longer version and also a silver underpants layer panty that I am wearing here. Here I am wearing the slightly longer version so you can tell how micro short the short version is!

The theme was a fun club look that I can wear to go dancing. 🙂

Necklace, bracelet & earrings: Finesmith Jewelry, O Collection 03
Corset: Dreams, Animal Print Corset (cheetah dark black)
Short pants: Miamai, Hotpants 01 (steel)
Boots: Paper Couture, Typhoon Boots (purple)
Hair: Maitreya, Aisha II (ebony)

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.

I Love Leather!

It’s getting almost cold where I live and I’m starting to wear some winter clothes. One item I like is leathers especially those that have that couture touch.

The leather jacket and low rise pants that I am wearing today comes from Ranena Olivier Couture. I just love the design and also this colour which is a rather unique and delicate colour for leathers.

Ranena Olivier Couture – Leather Jacket and Pants in Grape

The jacket has a high rise collar that adds to its elegance with rather big cuffs at the end of the sleeves. It also comes with a belt which I wore today but it also works if you don’t wear the belt, keeping the jacket very simple. Then you can wear your own belt at a low position to give it a totally different image with a more casual look. The pants come in long pants as well as short pants but since it’s getting cold, I thought the long version will be more suited to be worn now.

Although I hardly ever wear belly rings, I decided to wear this sweet belly ring that has a star hanging from it that comes from Twisted and Spoiled. It’s colour changing so it can be added as a cute addition to looks where your belly button will be showing.

I also matched up a pair of big sunglasses from DeLa. This comes in 6 different colours with 4 lens colours each and you get ones that you wear over your eyes as well as one that can be worn on your head, as I am doing here. What I loved about this is that it is attached to your nose when worn over your eyes but the one that you wear on your head is attached to your mouth. This means that when the sunglasses are not covering your eyes, you don’t have to worry about your prim eye lashes being removed. Of course, you can re-attach the sunglasses to your mouth yourself but all the more better if it’s all done for you!

Leather Jacket: Ranena Olivier Couture, Urban Leather Jacket Grape
Leather Pants: Ranena Olivier Couture, Urban Leather Low Rise Pants Grape
Sunglasses: DeLa, Sunglasses “RG1” Pearl Pink Lens on Head (worn on mouth)
Belly Ring: Twisted & Spoiled, Lucky Star Belly Ring (colour change)

ALB Dream Fashion – DIOR Impression Cloud

The other day I posted about AnaLee Balut‘s DIOR Impression Flower Set, which was a lovely pink gown in the Runway magazine blog. Today, I have one from the same series but this time, it’s a set called DIOR Impression Cloud. A dainty white gown with a touch of smokey lilac and a hem that’s not as long as a full gown makes this a somewhat nostalgic piece. As I said in my previous post, gowns in this series by AnaLee are all inspired by the great designs of DIOR but each one is different and that’s what makes it so interesting.

It was such a tough decision to choose which one I wanted with so many lovely gowns to choose from and I had the toughest time. After lingering around for so long, I finally decided to get two, which was the Flower gown and this Cloud. I liked the nostalgic feel this dress had while still good for any party.

The Chi Chi Pumps in cream colour from Maiiki Maitreya were a perfect match with its off white colour and smokey lilac trimmings. It was almost as if these shoes were made for this dress.

I also wore some sweet flower jewelry also from ALB Dream Fashion since I didn’t think gorgeous gems will suit this dress and I wanted to play up on its dainty image.
