Bling Bling

Hello,

Bling Bling

A very quick post before the New Year’s Eve. This year, like 90% of the past years for 15 years, I will celebrate the New Year with my best friends. For the occasion, we like to give a theme and for this time, it is “Bling Bling”. You can imagine how it made me laugh as i immediately thought about being a blingtard.

Bling Bling 2

In SL, the Vodka sequined Kyoot dress for Fifty Linden Friday Friday arrives right on time. In RL, I’ll go for less bling… I’ll cheat, just a bit of bling in the make-up will do it. About make-up, I’ve decided to go for a much more festive skin with the group gift from Glam Affair and I’ve added the FLF tatoo layer from L.Fauna which shows glitter. The picture below is not postprocess, only cropped so you can judge about the quality of the skin and make-up.

I hope you’ll have a lot of fun tonight, celebrate with friends and family. Be nice, don’t drink too much (in other words, don’t be as silly as me…).

Plum in the Snow

Hello,

In the Snow Plum

here’s my try at the 52 Weeks of color challenge, plum edition. I haven’t been able to do the blue and goldenrod weeks and I barely made it this time. But better late than never.

In the Snow Plum 2

It would have been a shame for me to skip that color as it is one i am using fairly often, SL or RL, it is stylish but not sad. It is also the occasion to share with you the new wonderful pants from Leezu. I’ve chosen here the short version as i wanted to wear the new Maitreya shoes and socks aswell but I love those pants so much i will probably use them in another color but with the full version this time.

In the Snow Plum Portrait

This week again Fifty Linden Friday is offering us a gem, it is a haircut from !Lamb Slowly but surely, this store is becoming one of my favorites for hairs. It is in the top 3 for sure. The styles are original with good textures. I prefer the blondes or light browns to the reds or copper for once, which is perfect as it is often the colors offered for Fifty Linden Friday.

Olive and mauve

Hello,

Leezu Maria Close UP

I’ve been wearing this outfit for quite some days now but hadn’t got time to blog it properly.

Leezu Maria Full

I’ve chosen the new Leezu Maria Jacket in olive for its wonderful textures and a combination of colors we don’t see that often. One of the problem when you go with original colors is you cannot always mix and match it easily with other things. Fortunately, Leezu has also the new Leezu tights and the mauve ones answer to the light pink of the jacket. The Courtisane new boots in dark brown were obvious as it is about the same color as the cuffs. Finaly, I can thank my good memory as I remembered that dress from Hucci might have the right color and the great bonus is it has a belt with the right brown.

Leezu Maria

To accessorize, I’ve used new releases from Je Suis, the Aviateur Sunglasses, exclusively available at Le Look, the Creoles Earrings also from Je Suis, and only available at the Rodeo Drive location (both will be available at Je Suis main location next month) and one of the new ponytails attachment from Amacci.

Hello,

As you can see, I am still playing with the fabulous hair from Dernier Cri. The top is part of an outfit from Epic, which appears in SL’s Virtual Fashion Lookbook for Fall 2010. To celebrate, there is a 50% off sale on all the clothing featured in the lookbook. I have to say I didn’t know that store before. It is full of cute fairy and faun fashion. The skirt from SMS is available at The Dressing Room.

Iki Ikarus has once again spoiled the Dutch Touch VIP group with a preview of the upcoming skin: Josje. This skin is described to be a girl’s next door rather than a beauty queen but i bet a lot of people would like to have such a cute neighbour!
