Casual Chic with Asia Rae

Asia 1b

Lately Asia Rae surprises us with more and more amazing new releases.

Today I would like to drag the spotlight on the “Roxane Dress”. A simple, but amazing detailed textured, short dress.

Asia 2b

Dresses like the “Roxane Dress” are a very important asset in a wardrobe in my view, as it gives the possibility to use them for so many different looks. You can drag it from a simple casual, over an exciting casual chic up to a wonderful seductive elegant look.

It only depends on the accessories, how you wanna make this awesome chameleon look like πŸ˜‰

Asia 3a

Today, I wanted to go for some casual chic, with a light touch of elegance. The idea came, when Alexavion, a very dear friend, that I know for years, dragged me to the St. Pete City sim to shoot the pics for the Womanstuff hunt gifts lookbook pictures. I never saw this amazing sim before. It was designed and built by Neva Crystall, the owner of Neva Estates. Her sims are one of the most amazing places to live and wander around. she puts so much love to the detail for her places… it is unbelievable awesome πŸ™‚

For the shoes I chose something converse. Probably this style would have called for pumps or stilettos, at least some high heels, but that would not be me. As long as I have my little styling freedom, I always will put my personal twist on it, if not requested differently for a runway or print job for example.

I chose the “Montana Boots” from Wicca’s Wardrobe. They can be used for elegant and casual purposes, even for some fantasy or RP depending on the color you use πŸ˜‰ I liked to wear them to the “Roxane Dress” as they as well have so many different style possibilities.

Asia 5a

To accessorize the whole look, I chose a jewelry set from Meva. The “Spiral Spheres” in gold. The amazing necklace, together with the ring, made the perfect addition to combine the controversy of the dress and the boots. In my view, it is a strong and bold set, that shows character and combines the casual and the chic.

I wanted to have a huge hat, I really do like the big hats as they add a lot of chic and elegance to looks for me, sometimes even something mystical. With hats you usually run into trouble finding hair, where the hair is not poking through. so the easiest way is to find a hair that comes with a hair or was made for hat. I found my today’s hair at ICONIC. The “Boss” hair comes as hair with hat and a HUD to choose for several colors. If I remember correctly, I found it on one of the On9 rounds, but I am sure it should be available in the main store now.

Urban Musing

ECLIPSE_WiccaFIN

This wonderful picture was done by the talented Tempest Rosca. We got the a theme for the last issue of the Eclipse Magazine, called Urban Musing. The trend becomes more and more popular. In many of the fashion cities you can find people who mix and match lingerie with normal urban casual, to create this new and modern look.

It was quite fun to experiment with lingerie and make something that can bw worn on the street πŸ˜‰

For more of those amazing looks you can take a peek on the February Issue of the Eclipse Magazine πŸ™‚

The last unicorn? Maybe not the very last…

Last Unicorn 3

The last round of Enchantment was themed after the amazing movie “The last Unicorn”.

I love that novel since I was a child, even if it makes me cry every time I watch it πŸ˜‰

When I styled for the idea of the Unicorn theme, Anderian was IMing me asking what I am up to and we came across that we kinda had the same idea about a themed picture. Then she asked me if we would not wanna do something together and I did not have to think about before I said yes πŸ˜‰

I love doing pictures with Anderian and have pictures done by her for magazines and events. She is so creative if it comes to picture compositions, sceneries and photo sets… simply adorable πŸ™‚

I jumped over to her platform and she already started building this awesome dreamy and colorful scenery. Since she should not do all the work on her own we decided to snap both and work on the pictures and if you would like to see hers just take a look on her Flickr.

I will put my style details in the end and would just like to let the fantasy do magic with some parts of the lyrics of the title song of the movie done by America.

TUNES

Last Unicorn 1

The Last Unicorn

When the last eagle flies
Over the last crumbling mountain
And the last lion roars
At the last dusty fountain
In the shadow of the forest
Though she may be old and worn
They will stare unbelieving
At the Last Unicorn
Last Unicorn 7
When the first breath of winter
Through the flowers is icing
And you look to the north
As the pale moon is rising
And it seems like all is dying
And would leave the world to mourn
In the distance hear the laughter
Of the Last UnicornI’m alive, I’m alive
Last Unicorn 4
When the last moon is cast
Over the last star of morning
And the future has passed
Without even a last desperate warning
Then look into the sky where through
The clouds a path is formed
Look and see her how she sparkles
It’s the Last Unicorn!I’m alive, I’m alive
I’m alive
[Lyrics by America]
Last Unicorn 2

Last Unicorn 6

Inspired by David Bowie

24077854359_c912e0a844_o

In January, when the incredible David Bowie passed away way too early, I was asked if I would like to be part of a special in the Eclipse Magazine.

When Trouble asked me if I would like to be part, I did not even need one second to think about and instantly said yes. He asked us to style something that was inspired of one of the David Bowie songs. One of my favourites always was Space Oddity.

Whe I was told who will take the picture, I was jumping up and down as it was Anderian Sugarplum, one of my favourite photographers and as well a very dear friend. I did know now, with her, I can do all weird stuff and ideas, as she always is able to realize or understand my crazy stuffs πŸ˜‰

When we met we did some brainstorming and she asked me what I had in mind for my styling or picture. When I told her about and as well showed her the amazing “Alien Drone” from E.V.E Studio, she immediately had an amazing idea for a set and started building it while I finalized my styling πŸ˜‰

When I saw the result, I was blown away. I really did love it so much and it was exactly the feeling and mood, I had when I putΒ  the whole look together!

Thank you so much for another amazing picture Anderian <3

Fragilestrong with Salt & Pepper!

Salt & Pepper 02final

Today I have something very special and as well a personal favour for you.

Lately I got an incredible rope harness from Salt & Pepper. I did not know that amazing designer personally before and I was super surprised, that we share the same country in RL*grins*

It is always kinda funny, if you talk to people in English and after a longer while you discover, that you could have spoken your mother tongue :p

Salt & Pepper 10final

When I met that wonderful lady, I immediately had an amazing and comfortable feeling talking to her and the more we talked, the more I felt, I would like to do that sweet lady a favour. Just because she was so nice and kind to me πŸ˜‰

She released an amazing Rope & Flowers set on a very new event called Objets d’Amour, which was hosted by the owners or the ROMP event. The first round, where this artpiece was released, was going on from the 4th or February until the 15th.

Sadly, RL did not let me do the pictures in time of the event :/

But since I wanted to do something very special, I simply could not rush the pics through.

But I took a peek at the main store of Salt & Pepper and I saw that she has the gacha machine up there now with that amazing items πŸ˜‰

Salt & Pepper 08final

I know that many people have prejudices about ropes on a nearly nude body and many times it just falls towards porn or gets judged like that. But as in so many cases, it is always in the eye of the beholder or about personal taste I guess.

To me ropes can be very artistic and as well, tasteful and artistic lingerie or nude shots can be very impressing and amazing.

And exactly that, I wanted to transport on my todays pictures πŸ˜‰

Salt & Pepper 01final

First I put on the harness and all the parts that came with it and looked at it very close. It comes with HUDs for all pieces, where you can change the colors of the ropes, metals and roses. The set contains even more parts than the ones I used but for the purpose and look I was going for they did not wanna really fit in to my view this time πŸ˜‰

I decided to go with the harness, the gag and cuffs for ankles and wrists. All parts are scripted for roleplay as well.

The more I looked on the different pieces, the more I found all those incredible details like the little chains that lead for the ropes to the metals or the amazing detailed texture of the rope itself. That already proves the high quality of the Salt & Pepper designs. The whole set contains 5 standard sizes for the classic avatars, Slink Physique/Hourglass and a Maitreya Lara fitting version.

Salt & Pepper 03final

When I was staring at my pixels wearing the awesome parts of the “Ropes & Flowers” set, imaginations ran through my head about what to do with it.

First I tried the black ropes and everything I tried to style kinda was sexy and seductive… but I wanted more. The more I tried, the more an idea got stuck in my mind about opposites. I wanted something artistic, something sexy, something classy.. something fragile and something strong and powerful.

First I thought that will be too many in one but the more I played with stuff the more I was confident about it can work.

Salt & Pepper 06final

I got stuck on the white ropes with the rose golden metals and the darker red roses. To give an opposite to the strong and kinky look of the “Ropes & Flowers” set, I wanted some white lingerie – not too playful with lots of ruffles and lace. More something classy, simple but still modern and different looking AND for the Slink Physique mesh body. After spending more than an hour on Marketplace, I made my way into the Starwalkers2010 chat and asked – kinda depressed – about ideas for something like that.

I got some very good advises but one girl hit the nail on the head with her suggestion… Thank you Voshie Paine!!!

She lead my way to Chocolate Atelier (c.A.). I TPed over to the store and already was very impressed about the designs and I was curious what Marketplace would give me for that brand since sometimes gacha items or older products are not available in world anymore but still there.

Salt & Pepper 09final

BINGO!

I found the “Thea Bra & Panties” ensemble. The amazing layer set can be worn on many different mesh bodies and mesh body parts with the provided appliers and it has the layer versions inside as well.

The simple looking light, smooth fabric has some very fascinating cutouts on both parts, that make an amazing front and back view πŸ˜‰

Salt & Pepper 07final

While I was searching through my inventory for any kind of scenery or decoration ideas, I stumbled over something that I got a long time ago and never really used it. It comes out of a time long before mesh even was talked about :p .

The “Draped” set from Glitterati was released back in 2011 and comes with a sheer satin looking fabric prop and 10 different poses. I did not use all of them but for a few I wanted to give it a try.

With all the new windlight, the old sculpties did not cooperate too well and I had to rework them a little later in PS. Since I am not a trained graphic artist in RL… go figure… that took a while, but it was well worth every minute for me and I learned new things πŸ˜‰

I had so much fun doing those pictures and post. I met a wonderful and kind person, I learned about 2Β  – for me new – brands I definitely will put on my “to shop and watch out for” list so overall it was a wonderful experience and try to play with lingerie, ropes and opposites πŸ™‚

PurpleMoon makes me wear pink!

PurpleMoon 8 starterWhen I got the amazing Cameron Outfit and saw the huge color HUD, I went through all colors… and I really could not resist to wear the pink. So I took my medicals and put it back on :p

PurpleMoon 3

Β The “Cameron Dress” is an amazing asymmetric dress with a sexy, high slit on the left leg. The sleeves are not the usual short ones and no long ones either. They just go down a little over the elbow πŸ˜‰

The dress for each color is parted in 2 halfs, what makes the whole ensemble very interesting and as well different. With the sharp folds and wrinkles it becomes an awesome realistic look.

PurpleMoon 6

As well part of the outfit is the incredible hat. Hats to me are something very special. I am a hat/headpiece addicted anyways and hats always add some kind of class and chic to every look. There is a reason why many classy celebrities and popular people wearing hats or some kind of head wear for the more classy events.

AS well all the rich and beautiful people who spent their free time on horseracing places like Ascot… you can see a lot of huge and extraordinary hats there πŸ˜‰

The hat of the “Cameron Dress” really reminded me on some of those πŸ˜‰

With the delicate lace and the wonderful ribbon that hat really makes a statement and pulls the whole look on the super elegant side.

PurpleMoon 2 shoes

To just not break that super elegant style I chose to wear the Titania Sandals as well from PurpleMoon. The shape just fit perfectly to the look and the color was matching dreamy to the pink shades of the dress.

PurpleMoon 5

For the scenery I used a few of the items that are available on the actual round of the On9 event. The “Pollen Table Lamp” I just used as a floor lamp together with the “Pollen Hanging Lamp” on the other side. Both are made by Di’Cor and available in 6 different colors at the event. The lights can be turned on and offΒ  by touch. The table lamp only has a LI of 2 and the hanging version only 6LI. With that low LI they are a perfect decoration even for a small room only πŸ˜‰

The cute and amazing steps were made by Serenity Style. There are 2 different versions available, one clean and one rusty. With all the love to the details those steps are a perfect decoration item for your home and as well a wonderful part of a scenery for photography.

Fantasy Dreams with Wicca’s Wardrobe

Miniel 1

Today I would like to showcase one of our latest releases. The “Miniel” outfit is available at the actual round of The Fantasy Collective (TFC).

Miniel 9

For today I chose the blue/brass version of the outfit, as it looked the best in the wooden environment I chose for my pictures. At the event you will find 5 different colors for the outfit.

The body is decorated with some armor looking parts as well as with some very filigree chains. The cool arm and leg armor is part of the whole “Miniel” outfit too.

Miniel 7

When I saw the “Eva” wings from NeverWish, I totally fell in love with them. They matched so perfect in style and color to the “Miniel” outfit.

Miniel 5

The “Eva” wings are incredible detailed and wonderful textured, little wings, that fit to many different looks. With the delicate roses and the wonderful filigree metal shapes they are a must have for every fantasy wardrobe. The wings do have a HUD to recolor the wings and metals separately.

Miniel 3

The cool “Nanina” hair was made by EMO-tions. The hair is made of many little braided parts, that are non symmetrical and have an awesome high top part.

The boots are as well from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The “Inara” boots with the little golden spikes and chains totally rocked the style and the blue version of the ‘Chic Edition’, even matched the color of the “Miniel” body suit.

LOTD 02/02/2016 – Clubbing

Clubbing 3

A few days ago, I was fooling around with my inventory. I did not sort it for a longer time and was unpacking boxes and sorting in some stuff.

All of a sudden I came across the “Plume” jacket from E-Clipse. I got that at the last On9 event. I was looking at it and already got some very different ideas for it. But then I kept sorting stuff, tried different boxes back and forth and got distracted again from my original ideas.

Clubbing 6

One boxΒ  said “Bay High-Waist” pants from [R3]. Knowing R3volt, it must be super cool looking pants, even if I did not remember yet, what they looked like or when I got them*hides*

I unpacked the box and put them on and… bingo! They looked perfect and put a totally different look on the jacket than i was originally going for. But sometimes you just have to listen to your guts and I decided to go by them for today’s look.

Clubbing 5

The “Vertigo” boots from [sys] were the perfect addition to the look. The smart flat boots with the open laces totally caught the mood I was going for.Β  With a little bit of tweaking work, the shoes even did fit over the mesh pants what is really rare these days. As well from [sys], are the sunglasses is used for this post. The “Monaco” sunglasses come with a HUD to customize them to your needs and with the light retro feeling they rocked the look.

Clubbing 1

Last but not least, to get the real clubbing feeling I put on the “Miwa” headphones made my Wicca’s Wardrobe. The cool headphones with the skulls and spine bones are the perfect accessory for every clubbing night or even for DJs for their work πŸ˜‰ With a huge HUD you can customize the colors in every single part.
