A Big Post for A Big Day

It’s was big day for me yesterrday.  Firstly, it was the second audition for AVENUE casting and also, I was celebrating the first day of Chinese Lunar New Year in RL.  With that in mind, I have decided to use red colour for all my pictures today. 😀

In this post, I will be sharing my stylings for the second phrase of the AVENUE casting and also a casual chic look, something that I would wear on my first day of Chinese New Year. 🙂

I have to say both the themes for audition yesterday were really challenging to my experience.

The first styling is an inspiration of Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2013 collections.  Models were asked to study the Collections and put on our own coin on it.  When I saw the Collections, immediately I thought of the Linen Blouse from .SHI that I bought at the Black Friday event last year.  It was a limited edition item and hence not many have seen it on the grid, which was a great news to me. 🙂 I was really excited when Joy told me she is going to release the same blouse in Spring textures in the near future.  The best experience was being able to show case one of the designs at the live audition yesterday, prior to the release 🙂  Not only that, I also have the priviledge to put on the sleeves that .SHI has prepared as a group gift for its’ member and will also be released the same time as the top.  A big thank you to Joy Laperriere for sending me these items to use for this round of audition.  <333

As the blouse is a lovely and signature piece, the challenge is to make my personal coin stood out.  AW S/S 13 Collections emphasized on clean cut, so I wanted to made sure all the accessories I used were carrying the same essence; and below is the results.  This is my most favourite styling among the four I have done for this casting.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

AW SS 1250
The Second theme is Avant Garde/Fetish. I have to admit this is not my strongest styling although I did a lot of research on this theme, in each of the area i.e. avant garde, fetish, architectural, structural, and trying to think how I could incorporate all of them and still look good and over the top.  A friend reminded me that the styling has to tell a story so I spent most of my last two weeks on this particular theme, styled and restyled.  I knew my styling for this theme was not extraordinary so I tried to make it up with poses.  Now, I will let you be the judge. 🙂

Avant Garde

Now, a lighter topic. 🙂

After the audition, I have put on an all new and bright look for the first day of Chinese New Year.  It is a Chinese tradition to wear new and red clothings on this auspicious day, so it was cool that I get to do that in SL too.  The Chinese Lunar New Year runs for 15 days, starting on Feb 10. If you want a bright and modern chic Chinese New Year look, check my style card. 😉

I hope you had a great weekend like I did and wishing everyone a great start for the year of snake. 😉

Caribbean Holiday

With so many things going on in RL at the moment, I probably won’t get to have a vacation this summer; but putting on this Caribbean Holiday Dress by Shiki Designs, hopefully it would take me there for a moment.

The Caribbean Holiday dress comes in three colours i.e. Vanilla (wore in the picture below), lilac and sunset. (………and I have to confess I love all the Shiki’s clothing names because they are always in touch with an experience, feelings, senses or an inspiration).

The Caribbean Holiday Dress is a high waist dress that has beautiful flora texture and long flexi prim skirt, something that resemble a beautiful and breezy tropical place indeed.

Caramella and Croco

I love this Caramella dress from Solidea Folies, recently released for the Couturier’s Dock.  Only 35 copies are available for grab so don’t miss it!

The stripes on the dress has a wonderful summer beachwear essence.  The green color and flowers, which is a signature of Mila’s creations, give it an even more fresh and feminine touch, so you could take the dress from the beach to anywhere on the street.

I paired my beautiful dress with this cute Croco Leather Bag which is the latest release from .SHI.  This bag is highly detailed and realistic and comes in a default cute size that I just want to hang on to it all day. 😀

Now, I am ready to go for more shopping.  Wanna share a taxi to the Couturier’s Dock and .SHI? 🙂
