House of Fox

I came to know House of Fox (HOF) through one of Journey’s posts when she blogged a lovely dress made for the Dressing Room event.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t locate the dress at the HOF but I did spent some good time in each HOF store admiring its’ designs.  Needless to say,  HOF became one of my favourite brands in SL and a store that I frequent for styling outfits and items.

Today, there is an opportunity to become a blogger of HOF and I just have to jump on it.  Not only because I love the brand but if it wasn’t for Journey’s post, I probably won’t get to know about HOF in such a short time, so I hope I will be able to inspire others and draw positive attention to the Brand the same way.

The style I have created for my entry started with a piece of HOF’s fashionable high waist couture shorts called LOLA.  The black short comes in a waist prim and string belt that brings a classy design to the next level.

I paired the shorts with a pink bodysuit for some pop effect and enhancing my style with the huge collar from the LpD Daria Dress.

It was really exciting to find the Closer hair from Vanity that sways the same direction as the HOF Toybox hat.  A statement ring is all I need to complete this look.

Packed in my HOF trunk is all my lovely clothings and accessories.  I am ready to blog if Fashionboi allows. 🙂

Love what you see?  Here’s the LM to the HOF Mainstore and the rest of the LM here!

Weather is cooling down in RL but the SL Fashion scene is definitely warming up now that we are deep into Fall.  Lots of events and shows around the grid for the last two weeks and just last week itself, I have received lots of lovely clothing for blogging, which means that has suddenly put me behind of my blogging schedules.  I am definitely not complaining because our designers have worked hard in bringing us all the wonderful new releases, so it is my job now in show casing them.

Without further ado, I like to show you this really cool jacket from Chantkare, called “LV”.  I paired the jacket with the dress I got from House of Fox on Fifty Linden Friday (FLF) and accessorize with cool items from L’accessoires, Collabor88 and TDR.

It’s a nice way of setting my blogging pace for this week.  Hope you like it too. 🙂

OGlam Model Search

It has been quite a fun two weeks for me, styling and preparing for one of the biggest agency castings on the grid.  There have been three phrases of the casting.  First being a photo submission of the Fall theme.  Leah helped me with two of the pictures because I was ill on the week the photo submission was due.   (Thank you so much Leah! <33)  As usual, Leah managed to captured the essence I wanted and these are the pictures that got me through phrase I.

Theme: Fall

Phase II was a runway challenge and style to the “Minimalist” theme.  I took quite awhile to decide on the look because this theme evolves quite a fair bit in RL, based on fashion trends too.  Minimalists used to style minimal with neutral colours and one piece clothing, however as fashion evolves, I noticed people are starting to use some accessories and sometimes added a statement piece, added a pop color and still called it “minimalist”.  Eventually, I have decided to go for the look that I like for a minimalist and I took inspiration from real life model Miranda Kerr, that is very much a minimalist in her styling. 🙂

This is the look that got me advanced into Phase III of the casting. 🙂

Theme: Minimalist

Phase III, also a runway challenge, is the total opposite of the Phase II theme.  For this challenge, we need to use Roberto Cavalli Fall Collection 2012 as an inspiration, with the use of colors.   Cavalli’s vision of Fall included short dresses in jewel toned colors of emerald-green, plum, fuchsia, electric blue and burgundy.  Also, animal prints, fur and leather gloves dominated the runway living to the theme of his fashion show – “Sumptuous”.  In this challenge we were also asked to write the descriptions of our style which you will be able to find mine below the pictures. 🙂

Theme: Robert Cavalli Fall 2012 Inspiration

As we are not expected to recreate an exact style of the RL, I used a different types of hair and accessories keeping in mind of the elements, materials and prints Cavalli uses for this season and my description reads as follow:

“Glamorous and extravagant, Ai hits the runway, in Roberto Cavalli’s Fall 2012 inspired look, in an electric blue sequin top and an exotic cat prints skirt.  The jewel like electric blue color contrasts perfectly with the colors of the cat prints.  A matching sequins belt and shoulder Anja fur complements her style. 

As though sequins, cat prints and fur are not enough, Ai is taking this already sumptuous look further adding a pair of black leather gloves and shiny leather boots.   The embellish necklace and little tint of sequins on the boots accentuate this luxurious theme.   Also inspired by Robert Cavalli’s Fall 2012 campaign, Ai added a little taste of wilderness by wearing a wet-look hair. The crown is Ai’s little twist to the look.  With the add of a new element, Ai brought some fun and taking this maximalist style to another level.  

To achieve her ensemble today, Ai edited some parts of her clothing, just like Cavalli, a clever trick in creating an ensemble that feels particularly modern and natural, albeit the mixture of multiple prints and textures.” 

I enjoyed this casting alot because not only these themese are fun to style to, they also gave my shopping trips a little more missions and meanings, not to mention all the refreshing clothings I have seen for the past couple of weeks.

This casting has also brought my skills to another level, when I decided to retexture my skirt and some parts of my shoes as I couldn’t find the types of prints I wanted.

While we are waiting for the results, next phrase, if I am selected, will be an interview so do wish me luck! 🙂

Mid Week Stylings

Firstly, I have to apologize for not able to keep up with my blogging for the last two days.  RL has gotten busy for the summer and I just don’t have time to process the pictures I have taken.  Having said that, I have managed to complete a couple today, so consider this a mid week styling treats if you would like.  All hairs used are from the Hair Fair 2012.  (Yes, I’m still not done with half of what I have.  Can’t promise I will have a comprehensive gallery like Leah‘s, but I will blog as many as I can until the fair ends on the 29th.)

So today it is not going to be a typical “hair fair trouble” post for me because I just feel a need to style . 😛

Remember to click the pictures for larger views.

Style 1 is inspired by the Chantkare Linen Beach Gown.  I missed the Couturier Dock’s version in beige colour so I have gone for blue instead, which surprisingly works wonderful for a summer styling day.  I love the linen details on this dress and the gathers at the bottom of the dress, it is simple but elegant, just the way I like my clothes to be. 🙂

The hat and hair I have on is from MONS, wonderful free gift at the Hair Fair.

Style 2 is inspired by .SHI latest release, the Lacet Motif.  I remember I have this sheer bodysuit from House of Fox and the Ombre Skirt from glow and when put them together it is actually a very graceful and chic result.  My cute hairdo is from Eliktira and my makeup is an accident.  Just the way I would dress for a RL party. 😛

Style 3 is inspired by the Discord Designs Delrey Hair, and I tried to create a style that mix hardcore with gentle soft, hence the candy colour Nana suit from Glam.  I’m not sure if it makes sense but hey! fashion and trends are suppose to be unexpected, and full of surprises. 😛

Oh! Check out my accessories from Amorous.  They are what I have got with the giftcard prize I won from the “On This Side of The PurpleMoon” contest.  Another cool brand, another styling options.  Mid week is good eh?
