Good Girl Gone (a Little) Bad

gggb1

I started off today’s look with the sexy Martini Dress and matching clutch from DCNY. It’s currently available at the Bewbapalooza event, which means that it also comes with appliers for Lola Tango breasts. The accent color of dress (on the bodice and on the clutch) varies from dress to dress, but I was in a rocker mood or something I guess.

I liked the blood orange lipstick on this Glam Affair skin in the Candy line, which is available as one of several gacha prizes at The Arcade. I thought it would really pop and work well with overall look because of the winged eye-liner. To top it off, literally and figuratively, I got the Ellie hair from LeLutka. I love the area above the ear being shaved to give it an edge, but the length still makes it feminine and I still feel like myself.

A Casual Easter

easter1

I got some new items from E! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories today, and one of them was a cute new tank top with an Easter bunny. Since it’s just a couple days away I put together a casual version of an Easter outfit using it as the base. It’s the current VIP group gift, if you’re not a member of the store’s group, there is a group join board next to the gift. There is a L$ 400 join fee, but you get a gift every month so it’s totally worth it. I decided to also wear their new Kallie Pants in Navy, which has a subtle leather texture. The pants come in 10 colors so there’s plenty to chose from.

easter2

I added the Video Games hair by Truth to top it off, since it comes with a flower headband that reminds me of the headbands that little girls tend to wear with their Easter dresses. For L$ 100 you can take your chance at The Arcade and get a random color from the gacha machine. The headband is separate from the hair so you can wear it with other hair.

That’s all from me for today, Happy Easter everyone!

Kawaii Cutie

Kawaii Cutie

Today’s outfit uses items from 2 events, so you’ll want to make sure you stop by and visit both of them! My hair is out at Collabor88 by D!va and it comes with 2 versions, and the ability to change the colors of the accessories as well as turn them off completely. I also got my new cute skirt recently, it’s from The Sea Hole’s gacha machine at The Arcade. It’s got a cute little kawaii happy poo on it, and well…this could be the first and last time I wear poo.

Asian Flowers

I’m posting today with some more items from the Unhinged event! First is the gorgeous Jane Doll skin from *YS&YS*, which is just one of their skins that you’ll be able to play the gacha machine for. I’m wearing the toothy version, but it also comes without your chompers showing. Then there is my dress, which is by PixelDolls. I haven’t worn this brand in quite some time, but with this dress that comes with various mesh attachments, I think I will be seriously watching them once again.

To find out more about the event, visit the official website: http://unhingedsl.com/

Oh, and before I go, I want to mention my new favorite hair by Alice Project, which is currently available at the Around The World event. It’s one of 9 SNSD (Girl’s Generation) inspired hairstyles, and this one is based on Yuri’s hair. I love it!

Hip Summer

I imagined Bananarama’s “Cruel Summer” a bit in the making of this post. Just replace “cruel” with “hip”…and then make up the rest of the words like I do. I’m wearing a bunch of items available at Vintage Fair 2012, and since it will be coming to a close on August 29 you should stop by soon!

Let’s start from the bottom up, with LITA Floral Shorts from .::PiCHi::., which are mesh and come in a few color options. I went for a pink and purple look today, so I paired them with a fuchsia top from *Mon Cheri*. I like mixing patterns, so the Zigzag Tote from Crash Republic was a nice way to keep with the same color palette but give the look some diversity. It’s a free gift, so you’ll want to be sure to grab it.

My skin and hair are also at the fair. My Veronica hair is by Wasabi Pills and reminds me of Hollywood starlet Veronica Lake. My skin is one of the Eliza 80’s skins that are by Izzie’s. These have a very youthful feel, and the make-ups do remind me of the trends in the 80’s (what little I remember from back then). All together these items become a hip summer look that make me sorry that it’s almost over.

Vintage Fair 2012 Preview: Looking In

I have another new look going on today from The Vintage Fair, and since it’s opening in a few days (Saturday, August 4, 2012) I thought it would be okay to tease you all a little more. I’m wearing new items from head to toe – so let’s get started!

My hair is from Pomme d’Amour, it’s called POLKA and is in a chocolate color. It’s not mesh, but it is resizable, so that’s always handy. I’m wearing a new skin, it’s from Heartsick and called Jaci. I love the bright red lips and winged black eye-liner!

My dress is from DCNY, a very current brand – but hello, I love this 60’s mod-style mini dress with collar. It reminds me of something Twiggy wore back in the day. If you’re going to go look for it, it’s called the Pop Collar dress. If you look closely at the first pic, I’ve got on some black leather kitten heels from ChaChaDee. It’s my first time wearing anything from them, but I was really happy to see how well made they are. They are called 1950s Heels, but I think they work with this pseudo 60’s vibe.

My pose prop, Though the Keyhole, is also available at the fair, it’s by HopScotch and it’s only one of the props and poses they will be showing. There are 7 poses built into the keyhole prop and you can adjust the position of them to fit your height. I’m on the short-side and they seemed to work pretty well for me.

Summer By The Water
