The weather at the moment drives me crazy… It is November and we have 12° to 17° celsius.

So one side of me wants to do winter mood pictures, the other tells me it is too warm outside to get into that mood :p .So when I unpacked the “Artemis” dress from [sys] I had to do another more autumn looking one;)

The amazing earrings and the cool bracelet I used come from MEVA and the clear pack pulled hair was done by EMO-tions.

The sim I chose for the pictures is one of my favourite casual looking sims. The “west of the Rain” sim is such a lovely island with so many different scenes and corners.

LOTD 08/05/2016 – Yesterday @ GizzA

GizzA 04

Yesterday when I dressed up for my GizzA shift I found myself in a light elegant mood. That for I tried one of the latest releases from GizzA called “Adrianna”. “Adrianna” is a wonderful ensemble of a jacket with a deep neckline and a wonderful short leather skirt. The outfit is available for standard avatars as well as for Slink Physique/Hourglass and Maitreya Lara mesh bodies.

Since GizzA recently started to make appliers for mesh bodies, I could not resist to use the new “Fleur Lace Top” under the “Adrianna” outfit. I made a wonderful addition to the rest of the look 🙂 The “Fleur Lace Top” comes with four appliers (Slink, Belleza, Maitreya & Omega) so you should be able to wear it with all the popular mesh bodies out there. What really caught my attention, the lines are very sharp and crisp and so you could see all the love for the details, Giz put into that wonderful new release. To complete the outfit I put sheer tights from Izzie’s and the wonderful “MeiMei” set made by Meva for the past round of On9, but I am sure you will find it at her main store now 😉

GizzA 01

For the pictures I again found my way to one of the Neva sims. This time it was Saint Pete City. A wonderful designed little city with so many details that I still find some every time I go back there 😉 For these picture series, I walked to the more outsides where you can see the seaside from those lovely benches. That would be as well a wonderful place just to relax and chat and enjoy the waves and birds I guess 😉

LOTD 05/11/2016 – Pokerface?

sys9

What ever was in my flu medicals… it must have had a girly factor…

I have no clue why but for some reason the last few days, all I tried to style turned out kinda girly :p

sys7

Today I am wearing the “Anae Dress”, made by [sys]. This cute short but as well edgy dress, totally caught my attention when I unpacked it and tried it for the first time. With the plain top and the amazing designed skirt, parted from each other with a chic leather belt, this dress totally is a must have for every fashionista.

sys5

The more I worked on the styling, the cuter the whole look became and I wanted a little twist on the overall view. First I added the glasses from Since 1975 and then the cool “Ann” bow from Elysium. All of a sudden I had a Lady Gaga feel to the whole styling and went on with the super cool “Cathien Collar” from Meva. The little bag is one of my faves lately as it is not that huge and works so much better as the usual big bags I have. The “Petite Malle” bag was made by Tracei and totally will have a place in the first part of my wardrobe 😉

sys4

First I tried some pumps and stilettos but all of the ones I put on kinda did not give the outfit what it needed in my view and so I decided to go with some more heavy looking ankle boots from Glamistry. The “Lantana” booties are ono of my all time favourites and I would not wanna miss them in my inventory. With the huge HUD you can customize them perfectly to nearly every look as you can recolor so many different parts single!

Last but not least I wanted some jewelry. Not too much but a little bit of chic, which I found with the “Arm Chain No. 2 ” from Finesmith.

Over all the whole style turned out as a fun outfit and even if I am not a girly type usually I really do like the overall look 😉

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 😉

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 🙂

Asia 6b

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 😉 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.

Black Dreams with Circles

Art in Hats Valsnia 3

And again the styling started with a hat only…

This time it was one of the contributions of Valsnia for the Art in Hats event.

Art in Hats Valsnia 9

I was thinking a lot about that cool “Circles Hat” and how I could style it up. I tried various style categories and nothing wanted to look right. I wanted something strong and powerful, but still not too huge to hide the hat.

When I started fooling with the Scenery and all the amazing 22769 furniture an idea grew in my mind.

Art in Hats Valsnia 1

A few days ago, I got this amazing tight dress from KaS as a special gift, and I  thought about, if that could work for my idea…

The dress has many different options to wear, but the long tight skirt with the sleeved top, looked perfect for what I was going for.

With the high neck collar from Spacegirl, I was able to kinda bring the circles of the amazing hat back to the whole look.

Art in Hats Valsnia 5

First I tried all kinds of pumps and stilettos and as well over knee boots for the look, but all added a weird domme touch to the whole scenery and I did not want that at all.

So just went with simple not too high boots from Pixelfashion, wich looked right and perfect to the amazing furniture.

Overall this looked like a very modern set up and I really enjoyed doing this whole photo series 😉
