One Shot: Spring Fling

spring fling

I was going to originally call this post something else, but I’ve been only in the mood to do quick shots lately, so here is a one-shot look at today’s outfit. I don’t often wear greens, so I decided to depart from my normal choice of pinks and purples, to show another side of me in aqua and chartreuse. The weather hasn’t been so great, so my windlight settings for today’s photo also reflects that.

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.

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.

Sunset Pink

I put together a quick look today using the adorable 3 Tier Dress in Cotton Candy from Cupcakes as the base of my look. Since elikatira is still having a huge sale, I figured that I would use of the colorful hairs from the rainbow pack of a hair called Sound. This outfit makes me feel ready for Valentine’s Day or something…and yes, I like to keep it cute!

Boho Cutie

I was originally going to use this look on my other blog, Living The Cute Life SL, but realized I hadn’t posted here in a few weeks. My adorable paisley boho babydoll dress is by DCNY, and it was released last month but it’s so adorable and comes in a number of colors. My shoes are by Ingenue and are at Collabor88 for only a few more days, so grab them while you still can!

I’m wearing my latest skin purchase, Chloe from The Sugar Garden. It’s so youthful and cutesy, which checks the boxes when it comes to skin for me (majority of the time). You can get it with or without freckles, and I went without because I could always add that on a tattoo layer if I felt like it. They also have appliers for prim/mesh boobies, if you’re into that.

Frisky Fall

There is a chill in the air now, and it seems like fall is zipping past me. The best part of colder weather is that there are a few more fashion options, like outerwear. I love coats, and this new Bristol Trench from Mon Tissu is so on point with the double breasted buttons and complementary edge piping. One of my favorite people in the world gave this to me as a gift, so a big thank you to my sister Sommer!

Also, take a look at my heels. Aren’t they fabulous? I love how unique they are, while still being refined enough to wear in a variety of ways. They are by Ingenue and are specially made for the Zodiac monthly event. They also come in a blood red or dark aqua, and each are only L$ 150, making them a steal!

Vintage Fair 2012 Preview: At The Diner

The Vintage Fair is almost here, it opens Saturday, August 4, 2012! I have a small preview today, with items from Ingenue, and, fair sponsor, oOo Studio. Other sponsors include: Aura, Belleza, Cheeky Pea, coldLogic, Gizza Creations, Indyra Originals, PurpleMoon Creations, and Trompe Loeil.

My Jubilee necklace, Lauren skirt and Jive shoes are all by Ingenue, one of the widely known and long-standing, vintage brands. I went for a classic black and red outfit and used the background of a diner to give it an even more retro feel.

Aren’t the cherries on my necklace cute? Both of the poses I used are by oOo Studio, they have new vintage-inspired poses out for the event and they are one of the major sponsors this year. I can definitely see using them beyond the fair because they are feminine and classic.

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?

A Pink Halo

I was in a real “blah” mood yesterday when I decided to put a look together. The Festival of Sin is going on, and it’s a really fun event to shop at so I thought I’d use a few items from there. My look was going in the direction I was feeling though, so I thought my new pink hair from Alice Project would be a great way to perk it up! I got it in pink because I’ve decided to try branching out a bit more and being more playful with color choices. Plus, I love pink. I got the Kiera hairstyle at FoS (although it isn’t exclusive to the event), it comes in several shades of pink with tip options as well.

My shoes are also available at FoS, but are by Ingenue – a brand that I have consistently adored for years. These are called the Khan Heels, and they feature a metal toe and spikes on the heel of the shoe. They are MESH, so make sure that you have a mesh compatible viewer if you intend to purchase them.

Then I also remembered I had a bunch of items from FINESMITH that would fit this look completely, especially these earrings and a bracelet from the “love doesnt grow on trees” line. They have an almost cubist style to them, which makes them more of a casual or fantasy item. Also in the line are a fantastic necklaces, broach and ring and face decorations – why not check them out for yourself?

Ingenue At Shoe Fair 2011

I love shoes, I think I am pretty normal in that way. Ingenue by Betty Doyle always comes up with sweet, somewhat vintage looking styles that I just have to get my feet into! For the Shoe Fair 2011, Ingenue has these Jane Wedge Sandals in the color Roses (which I am wearing) for L$ 295 and 100% of the proceeds go to the charity the fair is supporting, Soles4Souls. I was wearing them last night with different outfits, and I got asked where they were from already!

Also new for the shoe fair is the Tallula Heels, which come in a variety of colors. I’m wearing Moss to show off the great bow detail on the back of them – it’s just so darling! You can get a pair for L$ 295 or the fatpack of 15 colors for L$ 2400.

Both of these pairs of shoes are brand new and are only available at the fair for the moment, so go visit and try them for yourself!
