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.

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. 😉

Unique As The Barcode

Recently, I noticed an old friend changed her looks to becoming more like me. I wasn’t certain if I was over sensitive about it so I asked another friend that I trusted to look at it and the first expression she said was “You guys could have been sisters!”

I am quite bothered about it, not because she is copying me but I couldn’t understand why this person bothers to be like me, if we have fallen out.

My friend has asked me not to have any expectations on this person, that way there won’t be any disappointments.  The truth is, I do have expectations on anyone that is called a friend because should someone call me a friend, I expect the person to act like one and I expect a friend to be sincere and to be geniune, because that’s how I would treat him and her.

Anyway, you could copy my looks but you can never copy my styles. I am just like a barcode with an unique element that no one else would ever had.

The Dressing Room Styling

One of my favourite places to shop is at The Dressing Room (TDR) and from The Dressing Room I would usually take the teleport to The Dressing Room Blue (TDRB).  Like many, I have never once gone home from these rooms empty handed so I have to think it is a good thing.

Some of the following items have just been released at the TDRB, another reason to visit them if you haven’t done that this week.  I know I am a bad influence when it comes to shopping. 😉
