If it makes you happy…

If it makes you happy

TUNES

I’ve been long, a long way from here
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitos,
And drank til I was thirsty again
We went searching through thrift store jungles
Found Geronimo’s rifle, Marilyn’s shampoo
And Benny Goodman’s corset and pen

Well, o.k. I made this up
I promised you I’d never give up

You get down, real low down
You listen to Coltrane, derail your own train
Well who hasn’t been there before?
I come round, around the hard way
Bring you comics in bed, scrape the mold off the bread
And serve you french toast again

Well, o.k. I still get stoned
I’m not the kind of girl you’d take home

If it makes you happy
It can’t be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad

[Sheryl Crow]

Thank God it’s Friday!

I really do love my jobs but I am always happy when it is Friday and I can escape from my during the week routine ๐Ÿ˜‰

As much fun and joy my RL work is as much I enjoy the silence on the weekends – I am one of the happy people who only work from Monday to Thursday (more than 10 hours a day) t have free on Friday (if I do not have gigs with my band).

And I really enjoy those 3 days of total freedom and laziness ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today I was in a little punky mood and the “Elemia” dress from [sys] was just the perfect item to start styling ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since I am not a huge fan of bare legs – especially if the weather is not cooperating – I added some ripped jeans under the dress.

The cool sneakers I found at the Shoetopia and when I wanted to go back and get them… it was closed! Thank god I had not to wait too long until I found them in the KC main store.

When I was looking for a location, I wanted something casual, but as much as I tried to find a nice casual city or street, I did not find any… I really miss the old Mayfair sim where they had built a wonderful city with some stores and all those nice corners where you could do cool pics. The whole sim was mainly in white and light tones and not that dark as all the ones I found when I was looking today. Are there none regular and modern/mesh built city sims for just some easy casual posts? Maybe I am just too blonde to find them :p

Anyways, for the pictures I finally went to Woodbury Falls, as I did remember a car mechanics building there which I saw fit for today’s style.

I was allowed to walk along with the Scala Grad Students!

Shey Casual 01

Last weekend I had the great pleasure to walk the Graduation Show of the last Scala Academy batch, side by side with the grad students! It was so much fun and I kinda missed my good old student days ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since I got some of the students to know during the last batch of the academy, I did know I really have to watch my stylings, since we really had some very promising stylists! That does not mean I would not watch my stylings usually too but it is a very different feeling to walk along with the models that you taught about styling and other things before.

Plus, I know how obsessed Seashell is with poses and since we all had to be checked by her too… that was quite a challenge ๐Ÿ˜‰

Shey Casual 02

The sponsor for this graduation show was Shey. A wonderful brand with so many different styles. All of us got 3 outfits, which we had to style for the show.

Mine was all very different and so I tried to do justice to each of them ๐Ÿ™‚

ย My first assigned run was the “Aukje” outfit. The outfit comes as a complete outfit including top, skirt, belt and pants. When I put it on it immediately screamed “rock!” to me. The short skirt with that open vest seriously needs to be styled urban and kick ass for me ๐Ÿ˜‰ So I wanted to have a cool necklace but nothing elegant and sophisticated, more something loose and cool looking. I decided to go with the “Legendary” necklace from Mandala. The huge necklace made me kinda skip on the earrings but I did not wanna go with bare ears either. Solution: The special mesh ears from Mandala with the piercings and tunnels on it!

I am addicted to tattoos and I know many do not really like them on the runway. I had requested permission to do so for that very particular style since it kinda screamed for a tattoo ๐Ÿ˜‰

The tattoo is from my favourite tattoo maker, Julie Hastings, owner and designer of [White~Widow]. The super cool makeup is a combination of Nuuna’s And Zibska, that I added over each other.

It still looked as if it would miss something and I started to experiment with my hair. I tried a lot of different hair and none would satisfy me for the look as I came across the idea of a hat. The extravagant “Dali” hat from [sys]. The hat has an open back, which allows you to have hair that goes a little higher that usually for hats.

Shey Casual 03

My second outfit was more classy chic and when I tried it the first time, I did know I had to put my personal twist on it ๐Ÿ˜‰

ย Shey Funky 01

The “Mira” outfit comes with a blouse and skirt. The top is a kinda overlapping style and with its asymmetric shape and the high open front it has a definitely sexy touch.

Shey Funky 02

The skirt with its asymmetric shape and the amazing ornamented belt gave room for a little bit of crazy ness and I decided to try the “Gorgo Metal Helm” That looked so weird that it already was kinda cool again :p So I decided to keep it. Since I have so much going on, on my head, I have to keep the jewelry to a minimum for my personal taste. So I just added the “Sinra” Earrings from Mandala and the “Axiom” bracelet made by [sys].

Shey Funky 03

My 3rd and last outfit looked to me very elegant when I tried it on the first time.

Shey Formal 01

The “Sonia Prestige Gown” as well is an asymmetric gown. The left leg is long down to the ground while the right one ends short under the hips at the right upper leg. The top only is held by a filigree chain round the neck.

I wanted to keep that elegant touch and though about something what could work as well as accessory and for jewelry since the little chain round the neck does not let any room for a necklace. All ofย  a sudden the “Butterfly Neobaroque” head-piece from Swallow came to my mind. For the shoulders I chose a mixture off 2 different Finesmith sets, or better parts of them ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the earrings I just put some little and simple pearl earrings as I wanted to wear the “Celeste” face chain to complement the chain around my neck.

The show was a blast and I was very happy to be allowed to walk with our grads. Great looks, a great set and a cool bunch of amazing, skilled and upcoming stylists and models ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you Scala, thank you Seashell and Kryptonia!

LOTD 08/11/2015 – Back to the 80s?

Gabriel 001aI can not deny it… I am a child of the 80 somehow.

Born in 1977 I am basically too young to have experienced the 80s fashion myself a lot, but it was the time when I grew up and I still love the style of that time.

The 80s to me kinda show a fashion rebellion and as well I think that the 80s fashion made the way for what we call fashion nowadays.

Gabriel 002aWhen I put on the Emma Dress from Gabriel, I immediately fell in love and back to the 80s*giggles. Even if that dress matches a modern styling as well with the red and black and the shape of the dress I so saw Cyndi Lauper or Whitney Houston wearing it :p

The short dress with a kind of wrapped look, where the red overlays the black fabric, the neat belt, it just screamed 80s at me ๐Ÿ˜‰

The back of the “Emma” dress holds a very sexy secret as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ You have a small gap between top and skirt that gives a very naughty view on your lower back*rawr*

Gabriel 004aI added the “Khalessi” bracelets from [sys] and some heavy boots from [GOS], tp even more go towards the 80s look.

The amazing hair, which is connected to the hat comes from Ayashi and just was the perfect addition for that look. Certainly I needed a cool tattoo too and what can be better than one of my beloved White Widow tattoos!

Julie did it again and made a wonderful and as well sexy looking tattoo, that goes over the whole body and even down the hands, plus it even has a wonderful painted garter looking ornament at the left leg. The “Music Box” tattoo is available in theย  3 different colors and I chose the ‘Dark’ version for this post.

The fabulous nail polish was made by Giela Delpaso for Nailed It!

Fashionable Revolution with Faster Pussycat

Faster Pussycat - Revolution 01

Today I have again the great pleasure to showcase one of the newest releases of Faster Pussycat. Owner and Designer Honey Bender again outdid herself with a wonderful X-Mas/New Year Mini Collection. The X-Mas Fashio Riot contains 5 different outfits wich you s well can mix and match crossover. I decided to go with the “Le PETIT CADEU” outfit in tartan and added the “Huntress Buckled Gloves” and the “Rebel Antoinette ” shoes.

Faster Pussycat - Revolution 03

The “Le PETIT CADEU” outfit comes with a wonderful tight corset, the short skirt ruffles, the neck ribbon, the “Wabbity” mask and the sexy studded panties. As well you will find those amazing nipple shields and the incredible detailed “Anarchy” brooch in you box if you purchased the “Le PETIT CADEU” outfit.

The tartan fabric of the corset and the skirt together with the rebel attitude of the whole outfit and sa well the colors, immediately for me gave a UK punkish feeling.

Faster Pussycat - Revolution 04

The “Rebel Antoinette” shoes are made for the slink mid feet and with the brocade golden fabric they are the perfect addition for the outfit.

But like I mentioned before, this is only one outfit off the great Fashion Riot mini collection and to see all the other amazing outfits you can either make up your way to the Faster Pussycat main store to the second floor or wait till I have snapped all the other amazing outfits ๐Ÿ˜‰

Wicca’s Wardrobe: LOTD 08/31/2013 – Glamour Punk?

Yasum+LeeZu 001

Today again it was one on of the days where I did not plan to style something special… it just had happened during I sorted my ineventory ;).

Not too long ago I had a little chit chat with Azlyn Vaher, owner and designer of Yasum. I got her amazing
“Face Armor” mask, that she put in the Gacha Fair and I was lucky to pull the rare one while I was gambling at those gatchas. I had no special idea for that mask in that moment and sometimes things even get better when they lay around for a while, just like cheese or a good red wine ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Usually I do not sort those “I do not know yet” items in my inventory right away, I just leave them be where they are so every time when I open my inventory, I stumble over them and so, I keep them in mind better, than when I sort them in where they belong to.

Yasum+LeeZu 003

I put on that mask and while was wearing it, I kept sorting all the amazing stuffs I got and those I already blogged and was too lazy to sort in yet. That brought me to the amazing, sweet “Kitty Skirt” as well from Yasum. This short dress really is a cute base for a smart styling. I chose the black version with the light red accents and the red tartan pocket in the front. The “Kitty Skirt”ย  is top less so it starts right under the chest, so Iย  had to find a top for it.

I was trying different kinds and in the end my decision fell on the “Lourdes” top from LeeZu. It is not a very new item of LeeZu but one that I really like and already was wearing a few times in all of its colors. The “Lourdes” top was perfect with the huge ruffles over the chest and the one line that leads up to a beautiful neck collar wich is ornaments with little flowers. The short dress and the ruffled top reminded me on my youth and the punky styles I loved so much, so decided to go towards that direction. With some Vivienne Westwood in my mind because of the tartan pattern I wanted to add some leggings since she is really well known for all her socks and leggings stuff and that she combines different fabrics that do not get together on the first view. First I tried some socks and ripped stockings but that became way to trashy for that what I wanted to go for. I tried more the cute side of tights and socks but that as well was not that what I was looking for. Again the choice fell on one of my long time favourites from LeeZu, the “Cat Tights”.

Yasum+LeeZu 005

To add a bit more I put the “Knee socks” with the little holes over the tights. To not go towards the cute look too much I added the “Triumph” boots made by [GOS]. The heavy boots gave a good contra to the sweet ruffles of the “Lourdes” top. The amazing tattoo comes from White Widow. The “Mission” tattoo has 2 options one low and one normal. I decided to go with the normal one as I remembered some cool bangles from Xplosion I got long ago. The red leather together with the silver metals and that 80s look of them, just perfect matched the look. The huge tunnels and the piercings for the ears, are part of the mesh ears from Mandala. With the HUD that comes with them yo can recolor the tubes, metals and gems to match your outfit.

Yasum+LeeZu 004

Now the question came towards a difficult point again… wich hair to choose? I went through my hair folder, wich is not that small. One after another and none really wanted to match. The I came across a folder from KMADD. I am not quite sure where that was from, but I remember it was a special event. In that folder was a male shape and some other things and the “Seneca” hairstyle. Probably it was meant for a male avatar but if you know me for a while you know, I do not care about that facts too much, I just wear what I like ๐Ÿ˜‰

A last look into the mirror… perfect… I feel like years ago again ๐Ÿ™‚
