Like in a Frank Capra’s Movie

Hello,

Retro Couple 3

Today’s look will be a bit retro, elegant and sophisticated with a touch of romanticism. I had bought the shirt from Aoharu for something else but it did not fit at that time. I love it though with its loose bow. It reminds me of some 1930 blouse, like in a movie by Frank Capra. I love those old movies. I used to watch them with my grand mother when I was a kid and I am still happy when I see one. It was perfect to match my friend’s outfit who for once forgot about his pirate / biker look. He has discovered MR. Poet some weeks ago and must have bought all the shop at that time.

The skirt comes from District, it is part of a dress actualy, the Mrs Berenger’s one. You cannot see it really good on the picture but the texture has some nice details I haven’t found on other skirts. It is nice to remember about a little treasure hidden in your inventory.

For this outfit, I must have tried / purchased four or five different belts but none was the right color of red or they had details like bows or flowers which were a bit too much with the shirt until I have found this one at LeLutka.

I also had a little problem with the shoes… So I have paid a visit to the Shoe Fair, bought something like three or four fatpacks, all awesome, I will show them later but none of them had brigth red shoes… so I had to go back and went for these cute heels from Ingenue, a shop to remember for great quality elegant shoes with a realistic height.

The Jewels are a new release by Jori Watler for Mood. It is one of my favorite sets up to now with gold twisted links. I like particularly the size of the necklace and the earrings as they are big enough to be seen but not so big that it becomes predominant in the outfit. It compliments the neckline instead of covering it.

And last but not least… the awesome new fascinator from Lagyo. What can I say about it? It is simply perfect. The choice of colors, the splash of red on the white flowers, reminding the brushes. It is original and elegant, a must have.

Grey Coral

Hello,

Grey Coral 2

I wished I were able to describe as good with words the outfit I am wearing today as images can. The boyfriend blazer from So Many Styles and the Feather Wrapped Fedora from Mon Tissu are the bases, working pretty good together to create a tomboy look. The Leopard Hight waist skirt adds a 80’s side to it. I have always liked the combination of grey and pink, asif the grey was taking a bit away the girly feeling from pink.

I seem to have a problem with poses recently. I don’t know if I have too few or too many but I don’t seem to find easily the ones I want. As I couldn’t find one I liked to show the outfit and the awesome bag from MR. Poet all together, I have decided to hang the bag as a background item.

Teal Garden

Hello,

Teal Garden

Hart Larsson of PXL Creations did it again, I am falling in love with his new skin, Gaia. I’ve tried it with a lot of shapes and each time, it looks so pretty. Gaia has all I like so much with PXL skins, she is not oily, perfect for photography. In addition to that, Hart has made the shadows of the face so smooth it softens a lot the face and should earn new customers who might have found PXL skins a bit too hard before. Gaia is meant to be a younger looking skin than the previous PXL ones but like always, it respects the shape, doesn’t cover it completely so you can achieve looks a bit more mature.

Gaia is already available as a prerelease for the members of the [ PXL ] Female VIP group (which is totaly worth joining as you get a 10% discount on everything you buy so the initial cost will be rapidly refunded) at the PXL mainstore. and will be released for everyone at the Skin and Shape Expo on May 10th. Check PXL Creations blog for more info and pictures.

I have chosen a top from Mon Tissu and a skirt from Fishy Strawberry, two of my favorite shops for their great quality photorealistic clothes. I remember almost four years ago, when I have tried a photorealistic skirt for the first time. It went directly to the trash bin. For a while, I have been avoiding anything which was not hand drawned because of that very bad photocopy feeling. Since then, fortunately, I have tried others and I love good ones. The hair is one of this week new Truth’s styles which is very feminine.

There is so much going on lately, it is almost impossible to keep track of all the nice releases. I am having a hard time deciding what I like best. That is a relief as for a small period I was a bit fed up with what I was seeing. Let’s hope designers go on creating awesome items once all the fairs are over but let’s also remember there are incredible designers who have steady regular collections, even if a fair is the easy way to shop. And believe me, I am the first one who should visit a bit more and move my lazy ass to stores I don’t know yet.

Cashmere

Hello,

Cashmere

I have been paying a visit to Culture Shock today, actually, a bit more than a visit as the huge success makes it pretty hard to have anything to rezz. I admit I have let my avatar online there waiting for things to rezz for about thirty minutes at several times as all what I was seeing was awesome greyness. But perseverance and patience pays sometimes and I was able to grab most of the items I wanted and more.

Previews and blogs are great. Thanks to them, I as actualy able to navigate a bit the grey ocean and pick the Exile Hair as I knew their name without seeing anything. On the contrary, I was lucky to rezz and discover a store named Cashmere, where i have bought this very sexy bodysuit.

Cashmere 2

The absolutely fabulous glasses are from Mr Poet. You have to get them. They have tons of options for the ridiculous price of 250 L$. While speaking about accessories… have a look at this outfit. To me, a lot of its drama comes from the accessories. It is often the finishing touch for what you have been styling. In this case, the scarf from sur+, the glasses from Mr Poet and the bag from B@rerose are giving this sexy businesswoman look. To honor the so important accessories to any fahionista, Maylee Oh and I have started a new blog: Acces Libre. It stands for The Accessories Library. Pay us a visit there if you haven’t already, or if you are looking for a bag, a scarf, a hat, etc. to complete your outfit.
