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.

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!

An Asian Fairy – The Dragon Gown From Champagne! Sparkling Couture

2014.2.11 Champagne_Dragon MVW China 2014_007edit2

I guess it was my sheer luck that my computer decided to break down in mid-December when I was just getting ready to return back to Second Life.  I always wonder why some things just have to happen as if it chose the worst timing ever.  😦  And with the year-end/new year holidays, which is really big in my country, coming up, there was no way I could get my PC back before the new year.

So what I’m trying to say is….I missed watching Miss Virtual World last year!

But Enzo Champagne of Champagne! Sparking Couture sent me the amazing gown he created for Miss China 2014 called DRAGON, which was exactly what I needed having just come back and didn’t have time to go shopping yet.  Thanks to Enzo, I was able to get right back into modeling mode and totally enjoyed styling this fabulous gown.

2014.2.11 Champagne_Dragon MVW China 2014_009

The skin I’m using is the Shui skin from Elysium, which Aleida Rhode made for Asian avatars and it just seemed to be exactly the right skin to use with this gown.  Needless to say, I am very happy with the results too.  🙂

And a friend Japanese creator, Hays Uriza, made the jewelry set I am wearing.  It is a mesh set and comes in gold, silver and copper.  I use this set a lot and I never get tired of it because I just love how it’s simple and yet so impressive and creates a dramatic effect.  Again, just right for a dramatic gown like this Dragon.  I will just add that the necklace can be size adjusted in all 3 dimensions so it is very easy to get a right fit for any size avatar.

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)

2014.1.30 VoguE Witney Print Leather Winter Jacket_004edit

I have two great leather jackets to show from VoguE.  These are not the newest releases but they are both certainly recent releases and being a leather jacket fan in real life, I couldn’t resist styling these.

2014.1.30 VoguE Witney Print Leather Winter Jacket_001

This post is part 1 of 2 jacket posts.  It is a snake leather jacket that is definitely a fashion item that can be worn to dress up in high fashion.  The leather baggy pants  that I’m wearing with this jacket is sold as a separate item so you can match it up with these pants or with any other pants that you might already have.  Other colours are available for both jacket and pants.

Part 2 will be a more casual leather jacket that I also absolutely loved.  Stay tuned!

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!

Kay Fairey is Back!

2014.1.24 Self portrait_edit

I hadn’t been able to contact and apologize to all my friends who deserve an apology so I decided to post my apology to all those I had caused an inconvenience and to all those dear friends who worried about me while I was gone.  I never intended being gone for so long but my real life had undergone some major changes and I ended up unable to log in for longer than I expected.

I am really so sorry!

But I’m back!

I will need a bit more time to get settled.  Thanks to the free Linden Home I had, I can change clothes without having to hide behind bushes like I used to do when I was a newbie.  And I cannot find enough words to thank my dear friends who have offered me places to live, their wonderful creations and any help I might need to get back on track.

I have come back ready to face many complaints for “disappearing” so abruptly and I am aware that I deserve complaints.  But so far, I have heard nothing but warm welcome backs with open arms…and for that, I am ever so grateful that I am blessed with such wonderful, amazing and patient friends.  I am not going to mention any names but you all know who you are!

I only had one designer threaten me by saying “if you do it again, I will boom your phone!  I still have your phone number!” while she sent me her creations saying “you shouldn’t be outdated!”.  Again, you know who you are.  😛

THANK YOU ALL!!  And again, I am so sorry!

I don’t know where my SL adventure will take me this time, but for now, I will be helping Reign Congrejo, the new owner of the Best of SL, which I still consider my home.  I will not assume any head roles in any division of BOSL as Reign already has a wonderful team of managers in place.  I will stay in the background and help out where I can.  Reign is a business woman in real life who knows how to run a business.  It hasn’t been long since I came back but I am already very confident that she will manage to pull off this business that my dear friend and ex-boss, Frolic Mills, have given birth and nurtured.

I wish to take this opportunity to extend a big and special thank you to Frolic Mills for picking me up when I was still a newbie model with no model agency to support me.  I grew up with BOSL and had an amazing experience full of adventures and fun with you.  I would not be here if it wasn’t for Frolic and BOSL.

I will start blogging again once I have a home I can rez my photo studio again and I look forward to seeing what Second Life might have in store for me.  Last but not least, I thank all my dear readers for following my blog!  I will be back here also very soon. 🙂

Couture Sweetness – Prism Design

Prism Design – Monica Tiered Dress by Journey

A new mesh mini dress from Prism Design features a sweet combination of polka dots and tiered ruffles that forms the entire dress.  Many colour variations are available.  I really love this dress as it’s casual but one that can be styled to be very fashionable.

I matched this with a clutch bag from MOLiCHiNO and footwear from Cliche.  The clutch bag is also available in many colours and each colour comes with a solid colour version and one that is two-coloured combined with white.

Cliche is a relatively new brand that is available on marketplace.  But as you can see, designer and creator, Atila Blackmountain, has some great designs that is definitely worth checking out!

Fellini Couture for ‘Hope For Emilia’

Fellini Couture – Tentation W&B Hope For Emilia

“Rebuilding Lives, Restoring Hope”

Hope for Emilia, held through August 9, is a fundraising event for the victims of the recent earthquake in Emilia, Italy.  Many brands have joined in to support this charity project, donating exclusive items that are only sold on this event site with 100% of sales going to charity.

100% of the funds raised with this event will be donated to victims of the earthquake through a an official bank account opened by Emilia-Romagna region and all transactions will be public on the Hope For Emilia website.

Here, I am introducing this love gown that was released by Fellini Couture as the exclusive item.

“Fellini Couture – Tentation W&B Hope For Emilia” is a black & white mesh gown that is chic, elegant and glam!  I am also using an exclusive face tattoo released from White Widow.  This face tattoo comes in various colours and has the “without eye shadow” versions for each colour.  The one I am using here is the “with eye shadow” version.

The hat I matched in this styling is one of the new hats released recently from Bliss Couture.  Being a passionate animal lover, the bird in the hat was enough to make this one of my favorites.  Needless to say, it is stylish too!

The jewelry set is a new mesh jewelry that has just been released from Virtual Impressions.  At this store, new items are released every Saturday and group members can buy all new releases at 50% discount for the first one week period.  So this is one group worth joining if you have group slots you can open up.
