Curly Q

I feel like the title of this post sort of describes my hair ‘do which was a great group gift from =DeLa*=. It’s one of 2 mesh styles in the gift – and each comes in 2 colors! I love how I can wear hair that I could never pull off in the real world – and it fits my personality pretty well I think. Plus the ruffles of the Mignon top by Ingenue sort of match in a flirty way, it’s available for the month at Collabor88 in 5 colors – remember to try a demo!

If you like my skin or clutch, you should hurry to The Dressing Room by the end of the day tomorrow because then they’ll be gone! My skin is Kajira in light from Glam Affair, and my colorful Danerys clutch is by Emery. TDR is a great place to find items on trend and at a great price, who doesn’t love that?

Love CHIC²

Hello all, I’ve got my third post about CHIC², which includes the dress and skin I’m wearing, as well as all the items you see behind me. I was happy to be introduced to a new furniture brand by visiting this awesome event – POST made a whole collection of furniture and decor called “Haarlem”. It give that vintage vibe, while still being modern enough to fit in with different decorating styles. I showed only a few of the items included, but you should check out the display in their cube to see everything.

My dress is by =Zenith= and while I’m wearing it here in beige, it comes in a collection of colors. It is mesh and the belt is separate, so you can resize it to fit you how you like best. I found my normal XS size a little small, so I went up a size with it. You should always try a demo with mesh clothing because every creator does it a bit differently.

With this picture you can see the print of the dress better, as well as my skin. I’m wearing a skin called Rachel by *YS&YS*, which is a brand I have worn occasionally in the past, but this skin in the Sky make-up really suit me and my mood. I feel both pretty and a bit mysterious in it. There are also other skins by this brand, so try all the demos and choose the one that suits you best. A big bonus is that you also can use the shape that was created for this skin, so if you want to look just like the promo pictures – you can!

CHIC² runs until June 24, 2012 so you have a couple more weeks to have a look and pick up the exclusive items to celebrate CHIC Management’s 2nd birthday. What are you waiting for?

It’s a CHIC² Summer

CHIC² opened yesterday, and is an event to celebrate the second birthday of CHIC Management SL, which is today actually, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHIC MANAGEMENT! I felt like a simple summery look would be appropriate, especially since it’s turned rainy and cold in my part of the world. I decided to start with this Bettie swimsuit from Sn@tch, I don’t  have too many items from this brand, so I thought it would be nice to try it. I now don’t know why I don’t have more items, this bathing suit is both sexy and sweet, the bows are optional so you feel they are too cutesy, you don’t have to wear them.

In this shot you can better see my necklace and skin, which are also available at the event. My necklace is by Maxi Gossamer and is called Lost Eden Sun Pendant. It is mesh so it looks incredibly real. I’m wearing the long version, but included is also a shorter one and a smaller version – and you get all 3 in silver too! The skin is by {.essences.} and is a new line called Rowena. I’m wearing the medium tone because it gives me a summery tan that worked well with the color of the swimsuit. I’m wearing it bare, but you can also wear eye-shadows and lipsticks that will jazz it up some.

You can visit CHIC² until June, 24, 2012 so if you need to wait a bit to visit when it’s less busy you can, but be sure to stop by – each store has a new exclusive item for the event, so don’t miss out!

CHIC² On The Way

CHIC²  is an event that opens tomorrow (June 3, 2012) to celebrate the second birthday of CHIC Management SL, the group that brought you such events as: Vintage Fair, Culture Shock, Back To Black, and so on. There will be 150 beloved brands taking part, with one new and exclusive item (for the duration of the event).

I have on 3 items in this post that you’ll be able to find there, the first is the gorgeous mesh Tallulah dress from Bilo, which I am wearing in a Crushed Berry color. The floral pattern mixed with the black details gives a bit of a “color-blocking” feel. I also have the Rio Carry All Clutch by OSAKKI in the Lipstick version, which is also a mesh item. The tones on it matched well with the dress, and brought it to a more modern look.

Here’s a closer look at the skin, I’ve got on a new line from Al Vulo! called Baba2 which I fell in love with at first sight. I feel like this custard tone gives me a summery tan without going too far out of my usual look. The skin comes in 5 other tones so you should be able to find one that will suit your look.

The event runs until June 24, 2012 so you have a bit of time to get in and have a look. You’ll have to wait until it opens doors to the public tomorrow, but once it does you can use this taxi to get there.

The Gold Life

I love skins, in fact I have a skin addiction, and thankfully for me there are several events a year to satiate my need. The Skin Showcase organized by the Skin Addiction group opened today, and I decided to put together a look with the Moana skin from {.essences.}, which you can pick up there. I tend to stick with a few favorite brands when it comes to “everyday” skins, but I love the exotic look of this skin.

I’m wearing the Rosy Pale tone skin, along with a freckle tattoo layer, which is included in the package. You also can get eyeshadow and lipsticks to compliment the base skin, but I wanted to show it more naturally so you get a better idea of what it really looks like. The skin comes in 5 tones, and each one includes blush, freckles, pubic hair options and tattoo lashes. Base skins are L$ 800 per tone, the eyeshadow pack is L$ 200 for 10 colors, each cleavage layer is L$ 199 and the 10 color lipstick pack is L$ 200.

PS: I know I played with different frames and stuff, but I’ve been toying with PicMonkey – give it a try yourself!

FFL Preview: [My Dear] Hygeia Skins

I am really happy to be a blogger for Fashion For Life, besides being able to get in and shop early, I get to discover new brands and bring them to you so you can add them to your shopping list! I had heard about [My Dear] skins previously, but never had a chance to try them out. Today I got to have a look at the new Hygeia line being released tomorrow (March 10, 2012) at the FFL fair. The make-up I am featuring in this post (#7) is specifically made for the event and the proceeds will go to the Relay for Life, which supports cancer research by the American Cancer Society.

Here we have a better look at the faces of the skin, the lips have a fantastic, juicy gloss on them in a vibrant pink. Happily, this is exactly the kind of make-up I pick for myself! The tones shown above are:

  • Hygeia Skin – Medium 7
  • Hygeia Skin – Pale 7
  • Hygeia Skin – Tan 7
  • Hygeia Skin – Deeptan 7

Presently Present-ed

I got this Maitreya mesh dress from my little sister as part of my Christmas present, so I had to do a little post with it. I’ve also learned people don’t really care about reading blog posts anymore, which is good because I’ve got less time than I used to. The skin I’m wearing is L$10 at Pink Fuel as the With Love Hunt… item, and it’s pretty easy to find so go grab it. Also, my earrings are from a set by je suis… and are exclusive to the Four Corners event which everyone is blogging about, so check that out as well – it’s only L$79!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

Winter-ish

Winter is pretty much here, in my part of the real world. I’ve put together a quick post today using the beginning of winter as the theme, and using 2 items from the Peace On Earth Hunt 4. The first is this fun, pom-pom trimmed poncho from DCNY! I love a good poncho, and this one comes with a convenient alpha layer and is able to be modded so you’ll be able to wear it, no matter your size.

This brings us to the second hunt item, my skin from Rockberry! The winged eyeliner and deep red lips are very appropriate for the holiday season and comes in several tons with and without freckles. I’m wearing the Natural tone in the pictures, but they come from pale to dark.

The POE4 hunt runs until January 3, 2012 and if you want to find out more about it, you can have a look at their blog.

Vintage Fair #5: Shall We Have Tea?

I love vintage -inspired clothes. So many styles to choose from and often they are very feminine and refined. My latest look really showcases that, with the VINTAGE LADY dress from Shiki. It comes in 4 color variations of the flower print (if I remember correctly) with a chiffon-like gathered top and straight knee length skirt. I feel like I should be meeting the girls for tea in this dress, especially when paired with my huge hat.

You will get noticed a mile away in a hat like the one I’m wearing. It’s the Miss Rose hat from BaObA and comes in several different colors. I thought the bright purple would bring out the lavender in the dress – hopefully it worked! In this shot, you may also notice the skin I’m wearing…it’s the new line from IREN and it’s called Jessy. I am a huge fan of red lips, so this suited me particularly well.

I hope you all enjoyed this look as much as I do, stop by the Vintage Fair and check out these featured shops and more!
