A Mix n Match Casual Style

There was a casting audition recently in one of the agencies that I am with and I started thinking about styling for it. However, unfortunately, my schedule did not allow me to go at the designated time but I decided to style it anyway as it sounded like a really fun styling requirement. And now that I am finished, I’m loving this look so I decided to blog about it and also wear it for my casual looks.

It is basically a mix n match with several brands and my target was to achieve a casual look but with style and and something that actually looked better than a casual look that I might wear at home. So I decided to use my favorite colour mix. Black, white and red.

I think the hat and the patterned tights I wore makes this entire look really cute.

T-shirt: Fab Pony, I Love Me Tee (Black)

**This store was no longer there at the landmark I had and I just could not search it. I tracked the creator and sent a notecard asking her where the store had gone but I have not heard back since. If any of you reading this, know the where abouts of this store now, I would be very grateful if you can let me know. Thank you!

Lots of Wonderful New Releases From Paper Couture

Paper Couture has released lots of attractive releases which includes outfits, hair and accessories that all have a very “Paper Couture” look. Lots of frills, lots of flowers, sweet designs, soft and simply lovely colours, which are all very attractive for that sophisticated and feminine look.

I had so much fun shopping and decided to show three outfits today instead of writing lots of text as I believe you can get the feel of the collection from lots of pics.

The first one is “Jasmine Vest” a very sweet casual look that consists of a shirt, vest and short pants.

The next one is “Beaded Wildflowers.” This is a gorgeous cocktail dress with voluminous puffy sleeves and a very silky slim skirt that looks so elegant and yet luscious.

The last one is “Wrapped Paper Roses”, also from Paper Couture. This a lovely one piece dress with a sculpted belt with two large flowers made with the same texture added as an accent. The dress form is simple but the texture used adds interest and elegance to this set.

I may add that these are only a few of a much larger collection, which are all as attractive as those shown here. It’s certainly worth a shopping trip but make sure you bring lots of lindens with you as I am sure you will need them!

A New Release From Azul

Mami Jewell of “azul” has just released a new gown called Mia. It is an elegant gown that has a very wide black ribbon that composes the bodice of the gown and tied in a very big and soft ribbon at the front. The colours are arranged into what seems like a graduation with the colour becoming darker at the skirt but more vibrant at the top, creating an interesting look to an otherwise very simple design. The skirt is soft and voluminous while it is cropped short at the front revealing the legs. I found this gown to be great for dancing as you can still be in a formal gown while your legs will be revealed as if you were wearing a short cocktail dress.

I matched this gown with a very unusual coloured hair. I tried my usual black, but with a navy coloured dress, I wanted a bit more colour to the entire look. This is a colour called “pink brown” and it is a colour that is only available if you purchased a fat pack of the Kay ver2 hair at R’s Hair Style. Usually pink hair will be too childish or only good for fantasy looks but this one, because of the shade of brown in the pink, was good for any style with a touch of difference.

Choice of shoes will be important with this gown so I couldn’t just slap on a pair of “same coloured pumps” that you can’t even see anyway. I chose Stiletto Moody’s Bare series sandals to emphasize the bare legs in this look.

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.
