Taupe and the Silk Kerchief

Hello,

Chiffon

The Secret Store is finally being invited at The Dressing Room Blue and of course, Maylee Oh couldn’t just make a great skirt based on her latest release, she had to make a most awesome one! I am totaly in love with the print of the fabric, with a Art Nouveau feeling, rich colors and a silk effect. The skirt comes in two options, with and without a bow belt. I don’t know if the skirt will be avalaible when the TDR Blue closes its doors so you have to grab it NOW! For 60 L$ only, you have to get it!

I probably won’t have much time this coming days so i’ll cheat a bit and will already propose this post for the Taupe week of the 52 Weeks of color challenge. The star of this post is the skirt but the brown accessories and background are allowing to show the best out of it. Taupe is a great color, it is elegant and can be easily warmed up by small hints of more vivid colors. I am using it a lot in my outfits for these reasons.

Some words about the bag. I saw it first on Whimsy Winx’ blog and immediately Teleported to the shop to get it. It is a new release from the well known japanese creator June Dion of B@rerose. June offers us quality designs for very cheap prices. I often use bags coming from this shop as they are original with great textures. They come in several attachment points and in this case, you even get a smaller bag to use as a clutch for a mere 120 L$. It is not to be missed if you’re looking for nice accessories at a low price.

Parisienne Boho

Hello,

Boho 2

There were several new cute releases this week-end, including two Dutch Touch Skins, MensJe and MegAn, and a Mimikri dress, emily, which has a vintage boho feel to it. If you are part of the Dutch Touch VIP group, the MegAn starterpack in cream is only at 400 L$. No idea how long it will last but it is worth to run to the store to get the deal. The skin is cute with far set eyes, tons of options like 3 eyebrows colors, freckles, moles, cleavage.

I’ve been walking for some hours wearing this look, with those great MIEL boots, color changeable to fit about anything, a clutch and matching tights from Croire but there was something missing, hair. I’ve tried several different styles, but I was not happy with what i was finding until I saw an advertizing for Plume, a new hair shop by Fauve Beaumont. Fauve is proposing us original couture styles, with accessories like this cute hat for the Parisienne coiffure, which adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the look.

The Seasons Hunt was launched on saturday 15th January and will last for two whole weeks. I am not really into hunts, I can even say I am boycotting some of them for several reasons but in this case, I have to admit I am very pleasantly surprised as the designers have been very generous and are offering us awesome items, like the So Many Style Fur Shrug. Believe me, you want to look for it, but be warned, it is a well hidden one! One of the things I like about this hunt is you don’t have to find the gift in one store before being able to move to the next one. If you join the in world The Seasons Hunt(ers) group, you can find a notecard in the notices with the landmarks to the participating stores and tons of help from lovely people. So, you can choose to only visit the stores you like when you don’t have much time online or give a try at the whole list, which is really worth it.

French Girl Cliché

Hello,

French Girl

I wanted to blog the new Les Bleuets jacket from The Secret Store since its release one week ago but I couldn’t find a look I liked with it and which hadn’t been blogged yet by others. With the new Tatum hairstyle from Truth, the cliché french girl became obvious. Let’s say she’s going to buy a baguette on a spring sunday morning.

French Girl 2

The Secret Store is offering the scarf belt in blue as a Lazy Sunday item and it is coming soon to the store in several colors aswell if you missed it. The jeans and the bag are Fifty Linden Friday’s deals from Milk Motion. The jeans were still available this morning, you might check and grab them. the skin is a VIP group gift from Exodi, another preview of the upcoming Silvan.

As a side note, I am having serious connection problems lately and were not able to take as many pictures as I wanted. I might not blog for several days, as I will be unable to take pictures during evenings. Time will tell …

Aloha

Aloha,

Aloha

that’s the name of the latest Chantkare creation, a sexy classical a bit vintage dress. I’ve chosen to play the retro card and paired it with a hat from Donna Flora to play the actress stepping out of a boat, discovering the island from a wooden pier.

Kawaii Cowgirl

Hello,

Cowgirl

Don’t worry, or I am sorry, it depends on your point of view on the subject, but no, I am not changing my style for kawaii. It is cute, nice, sweet, etc. but that is definately not me. BUT… I’ve got that great friend who has a serious kawaii tendance and who tried to corrupt me last night, I will give her name, cause once again, it is all her fault: Maylee Oh! She had the great *coughs* idea to drag me to japanese stores, the pink ribbons ones, you know, the ones I see and walk to the other side of the street…

Cowgirl 2

After several sims and shops, even Maylee was feeling a bit nauseous from all the kawaii shamallows. You see, it is cute, sweet, etc. but it is just like sugar, a little is nice, too much and you got sick. We were about to give up when we both sighted the same tunic at Lo*momo. Courageously, I’ve left her try a red one first. I know, I am nice. We rapidly agreed the fluffy lace ribbon skirt was to be avoided but the top was so cute I’ve picked a light brown one. In a previous store, yorim’s, I had bought that fur and feather pochette. Rapidly the idea to work on cowgirl look was born. I also wanted to use one of the new Confetti minis skirts from Sn@tch. These are simply a must-have basic for any wardrobe.

Cowgirl Portrait

Maybe you will have noticed something new for me in these three pictures, it is the depth of field, the blur that is more intense as you move away from the camera focus. I was finaly able to have the new S21 build of Kirsten’s viewer to work on my computer. I don’t know why but the S20 was not working for me so maybe you might give it a try too and test it by yourself.
