unusually, i was in quite the femme/pretty mood today… which is sort of very unlike me. i find myself rarely dressing girly. or maybe i do and deny it for some reason. regardless, i think what brought about the femme inspiration was clawtooth’s latest hair – the modern gibson. full of volume, softness with a perfect little bun on top – this new hair is just perfection. i’m a sucker for soft wisps of hair and this one has it just across the face. the top is fairly new by nylon outfitters, fittingly called the princess wrap. i decided to dig through my inventory and take out my paper couture petal puff vest again to wear – a soft, pillowy vest so perfectly belted at the waist to bring it all in. the jewelry is new from lagyo as part of the mademoiselle collection from the adele set. well, you know i couldn’t just create a “pretty and feminine” look by having my entire outfit be… pretty and feminine. that would be a bore. i felt like putting on a little animal and thus the emery skirt… paired with polka dot sheer tights and some brand new, awesome booties from haut monde called the uproar boots. it comes in a variety of colors and has this fabulous curved wooden heel. as for the bag, i’m sure you’ve seen this floating around and being featured around the feeds – hawthorne’s impressive new bag as part of their first opening release. to end the look, i topped it off with some electric shades in this party green hue by shade throne to bring a little bit of a cool edge to it all. as the title says, i’d say this is “femme” done my way.

i don’t quite know what it’s always been with me and juxtaposing prints, but i get a warm, satisfying feeling inside when i do it. so when i paired my python printed tights with my leopard wedges, i was ecstatic. pencil skirts are huge lately, so you can imagine how i felt when mon tissue recently released their new colored pencils. i especially loved it in this greenish teal color that went oh so perfectly with my jungle-like legs and feet. the bag is new from nha! and is fiercely studed razor sharp spikes and large, round studs. the jewelry, also new, from lagyo is part of gyo’s new mademoiselle collection. i’m obsessed with the necklace and want to wrap it around my neck irl with a nice, crisp white collared shirt and a flowey maxi skirt. as for the top… by none other than my current fave, ison. it might be a little nippy out to be wearing cold shoulder tops, but i had to squeeze this one last chance in before my shoulders start to freeze! i finished the look with an old pair of epoque round circular shades in a muted mint color.. topped off by some pouty black lips. it’s getting cold out, so stay warm everyone!

while i don’t wear headwraps so much irl, i do love a great solid headwrap in sl to hold up my ombre hair. the ‘do is new from vive9 and i absolutely adore it – including the wisps of hair that are peeking out from it. the jewelry, well, it’s from the lovely gyo of lagyo and they’re so wonderful. i especially loved the matched look when the earrings are worn together with the necklace, but of course in different shades to create some contrast (both jewelry in the same color would be too matchy!). the top is absolutely amazing… and is actually the top portion of the rather breathtaking darc dress from gasqhe – home of all things fiercely fabulous. the skin is also from gasqhe called julie and was drawn to the particular makeup i’m wearing for that great eyeshadow work and light lips. the pants are the now famous cigarette trousers from ison that i can’t get enough of. the shape fits perfectly and i liked it in this firey red color especially. last but not least, the shoes are new from leverocci which was just released at daigon alley. not only are they brogues which i love, but they’re glossy – doubley love. i’m wearing them in the sky color – a light shade with a hint of sky blue. leverocci also released some adorable loafers and a trend-right satchel, perfect for carrying around in the fall. be sure to stop by the alley and check them out!

i wanted to be sure to use some of my smaller favorites from paper couture’s newest collection. my look doesn’t feature any of their ornate gowns, but it does incorporate some of my favorite jewelry and the amazing tightly bunned hair which i’m absolutely obsessed with. i’ve been in need of a great emerald necklace, and i’m so glad p.c. answered my wish for one. as for the ring, i’ve always been a huge fan of p.c. rings… so you know i had to get a few for my ring collection. the top is brightly colored in a great silhouette, latest from emery which i just love. those big sleeves and the striking contrast colored strip down the middle.. yum! the shoes are also new from baiastice called the nicki ankle boot… and the shape is to die for. a super thin stiletto heel paired with a thick, chunky platform… all in the shape of a fiercely great ankle boot. the shoe comes in a variety of colors, including a striking red which i just adore… so be sure to go get yourself a shade!

so, i’m not quite sure if we’re going through an indian summer, but i’m starting to get a little irritated at how i’m still unable to wear some of my favorite fall pieces that i have been dying to wear lately. thankfully, in the pixel world, i can wear a fabulous colored fur stole that i’d possibly have to wait another 3 months to wear irl. colored fur is absolutely amazing and bloomingdales is standing all behind it – i adore it. i was ecstatic when i saw some at bliss couture in a variety of colored pairings… this navy and marigold color being one of my faves. i love mixing casual with fancy – a comfy tiger sweater from milk motion with the bottom lace portion of a mimikri dress with a luxe crocodile bag by ison topped off with transparent glasses and some rugged vooner boots. it’s all about the mixing and matching and coming up with combinations that pique the interest. oh, and i really love this anna wintour-esque hair by elikatira. i instantly grabbed it in the essentials pack because i tend to have a.d.d. with my haircolor and can’t stick to one particular family of shades. fall, will you stop slacking and come already?

it’s a crisp, fall day outside in nyc… kind of gorgeous actually and i should be playing outside, but i wanted to post a look for you all before i headed out! when i found out about ison, i knew it was going to be one of my faves. their trend right, yet simple styles definately attracted me – such as the cold shoulder sweater that i’m wearing in this great neutral shade as well as these classic white cigarette trousers. there’s nothing better than creating a look with some really slick looking white pant trousers. i’m a little obsessed with lagyo’s latest jewels and the pointed corner shades from the modavia show. as for the sweater, i instantly fell in love with fashionably dead’s open weave sweater in blood red (which i’m wearing just the top portion here) from the collabor88 event. makes for a great layering piece over my cold shoulder. lastly, the bag i’m carrying is the olsen bag from house of fox in a fun shade of blue. happy fall everyone – go out there and have fun with stocking your wardrobe up with fall gear!

hi lovelies. it’s been a while! with real life taking over and a busy work schedule, i’ve hardly had the time to log into sl. i also needed a bit of time away which i was able to enjoy for a few months. i wanted to come back and see what was going on with fashion, right in time for modavia fashion week. i haven’t had a chance to sit in on a few shows yet, but i was able to hear that my dear friend gyo from lagyo had an absolutely wonderful show. after feeling pretty uninspired, i have to say, her new collection definately got my inspirational juices going again. after trying look after look from her showing of the new line at modavia, it started to tickle my styling fancy – and so i had the urge to create a look and post. while playing around with the pieces, i realized that this dress was one of my faves. the texture, the shape, everything about it… i wanted it for myself irl. i ended up creating a smart look with it… a funky, jazzed up office look if you will. the look called for an oversized collar which i manually modded to make larger from milk motion’s checkered shirt. i’m absolutely obsessed with epoque’s new pantone satchels both for the color variety it offers and the trendy oversized clutch shape. i’m a huge fan of brightly colored hairs and thus, this awesome hair by epoque as well in a gleaming strawberry hue. to top if off, a psychedelic lipstick shade from pididdle and sharp eyeliner by cheap makeup!
