Cherries!

Do you know that feeling? When you unpack something and immediately get an idea in front of your inner eye, what this should look like on your pictures? Usually I do not have that too often with my first piece that I put on, but sometimes it happens ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today it was the case when I put on the Sakushi outfit and cap from Entice. I have no idea why – I did not see that movie in ages – but when I looked at it, I had a scene in mind from the movie ‘Catch me if you can’. The moment when Leonardo DiCaprio walked into the airport with all this blue dressed stewardesses. Maybe it was the cap and as well the vintage touch of that cherries, but I was stuck with that thought in my head.

 

As usual, that idea did not work out as I found no vintage airport that went with my 50s/60s idea for my picture. So I went back to my platform and tried to built me a set, that at least catches the vibe of what I wanted to do.

While I was rezzing all kind of things I remembered the propellers I got at one of the last FLF from NOMAD and they completely rocked. When I found them all the rest fell into place really easy ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now I needed shoes, that went with my idea and when I saw the “Heidi Slingbacks” from [Gos], I first was curing as on the picture they only had flower prints showing and I could not imagine flower prints with my cherry dress. But, when I opened them and saw all the amazing different HUDs, I was doing the happy dance. when I found out that the red of the ‘Boutique HUD’ even matched the red of the cherries, I was sold ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I was done with the pictures, I did some sim hopping and while I was roaming around,I found that fabulous “Time Portal”ย  location, with all those different mini locations of all kind themes and times and there was one 50s location too! They had a wonderful diner and as well this cute little pet shop, which you can see in the background of the first picture. As if it would have been fate, there was a bench with some really cool animations in front of it. One of the poses even had a vintage newspaper as a prop and I could not resist to just add one more picture in for this post.

I have to go back and explore this place some more and see what other cool posts I could do with inspiration of different centuries ๐Ÿ˜‰

Into the Groove

TUNES

Music can be such a revelation
Dancing around you feel the sweet sensation
We might be lovers if the rhythm’s right
I hope this feeling never ends tonight
[Madonna]

I am a kid of the 80s. Music, fashion and the whole lifestyle is something, I was not really able to enjoy when it happened, as I really was a kid in the 80s and sometimes I wish, I just would have been born a little bit earlier ๐Ÿ˜‰

The 80s fashion did not last too long but it did and as well does influence the fashion trends a lot. The 80s was the time of big fashion icons like Lady Di, Madonna, Cher, Grace Jones and many more big names. Certainly most of the ones I called by name are musicians – I am a musician myself in RL, so that is my personal favorites not only for fashion.

The 80s brought out some really avant garde models and creations. Even today if you ask people – young and old – they remember leggings, shoulder pads, stretch dresses and skirts, leg warmers, graphic tees and certainly vibrant and neon colors. The other side of the coin for the more cool kids was the vinyl, latex, denim, fingerless gloves or oversized top looks.

 

Even if my style would have been a bit darker, more towards the rocker styles of the 80s, when I saw the “Chala Ice Cream” dress, made by Rosary, I immediately wanted to do a color pop style. I had no idea for along time how to illustrate the look I had in my mind, but when I saw the “Debbie” poses from BellePoses with those huge records – I had what it needed ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I was styling and snapping the pics I heard a lot of Madonna and Cyndi Lauper to get the right mood and groove. The last one even wore this kind of colorful stuff mostly paired with waist corsets.

Certainly according to Grace Jones stylings, I had to find some really vibrant and colorful makeup. What better place I could have thought of that Zibska. Zib ha a great sense for strong and bold colors and how to bring them on your face as an incredible makeup.

I am really curious what else will be brought back from the 80s besides leggings and white jeans and some more we already had in summer. The fashion industry already released some A/W 2018 fashion trends and I saw animal prints, western styles with cowboy boots and sequins coming back – lets see what else they will bring back! I am crossing my fingers for some rock or gothic creations *searches for her ripped fingerless gloves*

Dashing through the Snow – maybe not in a one horse open sleigh ;p

Since we again have only wet and cold weather without any snow, I decided to go out for some virtual snow and enjoy some winter activities at least online when it is dark outside :p

At least some virtual snow is better than nothing even if you can’t compare that to a real winter, which I really miss over here.

The reason for todays post were the amazing “Nadia” boots from UTOPIA@Design. I am really in love with the all the details and the realistic looking fabrics. It could have been just leather boots, but not with ร‰lisabetta Hyun, owner and designer of UTOPIA@Design. If you take a closer look you will see besides the amazing leather boot, you have a cute knitted top part and a wonderful little decoration and the outer side of the shaft. What always amazes me is the sharpness of the tiny details on the textures. The seams are super crisp, even if you zoom in very close and the leather gives you the illusion that you could feel the little bumpy structure, if you could slide your finger over it – really stunning.

The sweet dress I found at the Winter Trend fair, which sadly already is over but I am sure the dress will be available at the Neve main store by now. While i was looking for hair, I got the idea of bringing all the knitted fabrics of the outfit and the boots back with some kind of a cap too. The “Star” hairstyle from Besom just had the perfect hat for that!

Since I was already in that snow/winter mood I looked into the depth of my inventory and certainly found an amazing sled from Sway’s. It has inbuilt poses but they are made for couples so I just went ahead and used some poses from the amazing Belle Poses I got a while ago as I had to restock on some poses to have some nice bento ones too ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you enjoyed my snow trip as much as I did ๐Ÿ˜‰

Back in Black

Yes I’m back in black
Back in the back of a Cadillac
Number one with a bullet I’m a power pack

[AC/DC]

Yes… finally black again :p

Today with [sys] and Blacklace.

When I first saw the “Passenger” outfit from [sys], I fell totally in love with it. I anyways have a fable for non symmetric looks and that outfit itself already has that!

The jacket has along sleeve on the left side and is only held by a strap on the right side while the pants are right the other way round. The amazing straps over the belly and chest just add a wonderful, sexy touch to it.

You can wear it without any lingerie as well – and probably that would be even more sexy – but I liked a lot, how the lingerie looked like under the outfit. (Plus I was more safe to sit anywhere in public without any scandalizing views :p)

The amazing glasses I found at Minimal. I Loved the different look with the parts the cover the ears like headphones. I love futuristic stuffs anyways and the cool “Power Glasses” just have the right amount of futuristic and nowadays touch to it and matched perfectly my today’s look.

The amazing nail polish was made by ChloeElectra for her bran .alme. She recently came up with some adorable new nail polished on several events – I guess I should think about a nail spotlight soon – but some of her older ones are kinda long time favorites for me. The “Silver Lines” which she made in dark and light are one of those. with a solid color on the nail and a little silver line towards the finger at the end of the nail, they are just super amazing for all kind of styles and still look special because of that metallic line.

Even if I force myself more and more to try on colors .. black will always be my fave ๐Ÿ˜‰
