The Girls of 007

I had the honour of walking in The Girls of 007 show yesterday produced by The Collective.   It was a show celebrating and paying tribute to 50 years of the James Bond movies, with 24 BOND girls all styled and wore clothing inspired by the movies.  These clothings were made by some really talented designers in SL as listed in the teaser below.

I was assigned two characters:

Plenty O’toole in “Diamond is Forever”

My beautiful gown for Plenty is from KeZa, made by Zaara Guzzanti. I love the shades of this gown and it is very similar to the one we saw in the movie.  As I couldn’t find necklace that look similar, I modified and combined two necklaces to make the one I was wearing.  I was also hoping I could make my shape more voluptous like the movie character but with some limitation of the mesh, I couldn’t do it.   In fact, I have to make my saddle bag smaller and hence I have decided to keep my cleverage the same size in order not to have that “top heavy” impression. 😛

My second character is Severine in the latest “Skyfall”.

….and I was wearing the gown made by Ghee. My picture doesn’t quite do justice to this gown because it sparkles and shines.  Definitely a killer piece. 🙂

I couldn’t find a similar necklace for this styling too, so I wore a dagger instead because Severine is not entirely a good BOND girl. 🙂

Those of you who were at our show yesterday, we hope you enjoyed the Show as much as The Collective team putting it together.  For those who missed it, just head down to the designer stores to grab yourself a copy of your favourite BOND girl outfit. 🙂

Have a great weekend everyone! ❤

Trinidad by TORN

This outfit arrived a little late at my preparation of the Haute Show yesterday, but it is really worth the wait.  The Couture AFW Trinidad by TORN, a limited edition set, is a very unique number and I agreed with Leah that it is perfect for a Minimalist-Haute look, which is one of the latest real life fashion trends.

A few styling images popped up when I put on this outfit and I spent at least the first hour trying to make one of them worked but couldn’t and finally I opted to be a “Minimalist Magician” with the same Sophie Top Hat from Pure Poison that I adored. 🙂

I have seldom required to prepare an outfit and poses within a few hours for a runway walk but thank you very very much to Leah for her helps and constant reassurance yesterday, I managed to make it worked!

I’ve got a lot of IMs inquiring about this outfit yesterday.  Thank you very much for your conpliments.  The Trinidad is now available at the AVENUE S/S Fashion Week retail gallery, the Haute section.

Hopeful Spring

Sometimes things happened for a reason –  How often we experienced the meaning of this phrase?  Not often, at least for me, but having said that, I believe I just had an experience of it.

Luck hasn’t been on my side for the last two weeks.  Last Monday, my husband met with a car accident on his way to work.  He is alright but his car isn’t.  I had to hold my tears in front of my daughter after seeing the damaged car because it is just too severe.  I imagined it must be a horrible experience for my husband during the crash.  I prayed all the way home and thanked god that my husband was not injured.   The accident has suddenly put a great strain on our finances. Both my husband and I were emotionally frustrated because he needed the car badly for his new job.  The accident happened on the same week when I was busy between preparing for AVENUE S/S fashion week and kid`s spring camp.  Being busy was a good thing because I needed something to take my mind off the car problem.

When I was finally more settled with the incident, my health took a dip.  I felt pain on one of my breasts on Friday night.  By Saturday morning, I could feel a lump and it was unusually painful.  I dare not think what was it and at one point was contemplating if I should tell anyone.  Maybe the lump and pain would go away after some good rest? but who am I to fool?  It was unusually painful that I could not ignore.  Every step I took the pain was there to remind me of it.  So I finally acknowledged I needed medical consultation.  However, it was Easter weekends and my family doctor wasn’t working.  I tried another clinic and it was not opened too so I came home to sleep, and sleep.  Emotionally I was quite torn.  On one hand, I was scared and frustrated.   I asked myself if I have been cursed with bad luck lately but on the other hand, I told myself I needed to stay calm and positive because bad mood and bad vibes attract bad things.  The rest of my memory of the weekend was very vague.  I don’t quite remember how I have survived it.

The waiting at the clinic on Monday morning was agonizing.  The urgent tone from the doctor after she had examined me didn’t help.  She told me to make myself available for mammogram and ultra sound appointments within the same week and “AS SOON AS POSSIBLE”!  So I did.  I have to.  My appointments were scheduled on Wednesday morning.  It was another nerves wrecking wait.  I didn’t know what to think, I couldn’t eat, couldn’t focus on anything so I slept most time and in between I think I edited some pictures for blogging too because I needed some distraction.  I also stepped back from my Producer duties at the Fashion Week because knowing myself I won’t be able to do a good job with such state of mind.

After six days of worries, my doctor gave me a clean bill this morning.  Turn out the lump and pain was due to gland tissues. It was a huge sigh of relief when she told me everything is alright.

OK, so I haven’t been truthful.  I said I couldn’t think but actually I did a lot of thinking for the past six days.  I asked myself what have caused the possible of breast cancer despite there is no such history in my family.  I came to realise I have been living under stress and bad mood since I moved to a foreign land.  A new environment, some bad experience and with no support systems here took the best of me.  I realize I need to make adjustment.  I need to be more positive and put more focus on things that are deserving and let go of those that are underserving.  I know I need to keep my faith and have a better control of my own mood.  I know I need to change, soon, before everything is too late.

So today I have a clean bill of health but the experience I encountered for the past two weeks have changed my perspective of life.

Sometimes things do happened for a reason. I was put through life and death, wealth and health situations within a short span of two weeks, to understand what is most important to me. Today, I have choosen to share my experience here not because I wanted sympathy or empathy.  All I wanted to share is the message of focusing on what is most important to you in life and let the trivial ones go.  Don’t wait until it is too late.  In my case, I am glad it is not late for me.  God has continued to grant me the power of choice and I know I need to choose wisely this time.

Here is wishing everyone a beautiful, hopeful and forward looking spring.  Some nice clothings will definitely help too like the two I wore above. 🙂

One more day to the weekend….remember to come watch me walk on the Ricielli show tomorrow (Friday), as well as the closing Haute show on Saturday, along with some really fabulous stylists and models on the grid.  <333

The Girl

The first day of the AVENUE Spring/Summer Fashion Week ended on a high note, with 4 successful shows and many fashionista crashing the sims.  😀 I am especially thrilled because I walked in my first show with AVENUE today.  The feeling is undescribable.

Here is one of my looks, and my most favourite one, at the Ladies Who Lunch (LWL) show.  It’s a girlie number with a trendy style.  Hope you like it as much as I do.
