Lovely Light

I was lucky enough to get a couple new items from E! Eclectic Apparel and decided to put a twist on a summer look with them. I sort of went for an European, romantic feel with the styling as well as the lighting. The Bronte Top and Darla Blazer are both mesh items, but they layer well with each other while wearing the same size for both (xs). The blazer is cut a little bigger to fit over the top it seems, so I was really happy not to have to try to see which size fit over the top.

I’m also wearing a new pair of shoes, these are from Ingenue and are available at this round of Collabor88 that opened just a couple days ago. The two-toned color choices range from classy to sassy. I love wedges, so these are my new faves! Each pair is only L$ 88 so there is no reason not to get a pair.

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.
