Warrior of Light

This month at Collabor88 has a very special guest designer, .SHI, that brought us the Warrior of Light collections. From body cuff to neck warmer to a a wrap top, each design is just so unique.

This body cuff is my personal favourite because it can be worn many ways and I love the options of recolouring different parts of the cuff.

Also, in this pose, I am wearing the Racer pleat dress by Ozi, released at the recent AVENUE Fashion Week and matching it with the Valquiria boots by Kunglers.  You can find the boots at the Kunglers’ mainstore or as part of the outfit at the AVENUE retail gallery.

Thanks to all the wonderful designers for their creations, this fall my SL Wardrobe is packed with really good stuffs!  ❤

Solidea @ Love Donna Flora

In my earlier post, I blogged about the Love Donna Flora event.  Just in case you have not heard of it, this is a fundraising event to help Squinternet Larnia, owner of Donna Flora, seek home nursing care while battling cancer.

This cute dress, Dotty, designed by Solidea is also for the Love Donna Flora fundraising event.  It’s really funny as I have been looking for polka dots clothings for one of my styling assignments and this dress showed up.  It is as if the dress heard my calling.   Hopefully this is true, as today I am calling all my readers’ to support this event in helping a very talented SL resident to raise funds so she could afford home nursing as well as acquire alternative treatments.

Three SL Wishes Meme

Welcome to my second Meme post, responding to the blogger challenge championed by Strawberry Singh. 🙂  You can read about my first Meme post here.

I hopped from the first Meme topic to the most recent one because I find this one really interesting, partially because I am a “what if” person and always day dreaming about some “if” situations, so this is just a perfect one for me. 😛

Rose + Solidea + shi + ison 2048

…and here it goes…

So you’re walking along the beach, kicking at the sand and you notice a magic lamp hidden under a rock. You pull it out and rub it, because what else would you do with a magic lamp? Out pops a genie and is ready to grant you three wishes, any three wishes to do with your SLife.

1. I wish the Firestorm viewer would offer a calender feature that also works as an organizer that I could mark all my SL appointments as well as events that I like to follow on the respective date and time, for example a fashion show, a deadline, a fair, friends’ rezz days, wedding days and etc.  This Organizer will also send me alerts as the appointment and event draw closer.  It would be awesome if it could be something that work similarly to the Microsoft Outlook, that I could file the respective landmark, notecards and perhaps my prepared outfit that with a few clicks I would be all ready as soon as the alarm goes off.  Call me lazy, call me super OCD, but would it be cool if you have this to make our Second Life a little more easier? 😛

2. I wish Linden would increase its’ weekly allowance. Afterall, the more we spend in SL, the more it will help with the SL economy. 😛  Seriously, I so wish I have enough skills to get a good paying (and decent) job in SL to help me pay for my rent and shopping sprees.

3. I kinna mentioned this in my first Meme post….I wish I will be able to own a sim one day with a fantasy theme that I will be able to offer store space to some of my lovely designer friends here; and on my sim a genie that could grant me another 3 wishes. 😛

If you have read my first Meme post, you will know that I love to delete stuffs in my inventory and sometimes too much so on second thought, I also wish we have an undo button for our inventory, to undo items that I have accidentally deleted in the trash or sentences on the notecards.

My Meme style today is a punk queen because my Genie said so! 😀

Have a great weekend everyone.  Do join the Meme Blogger Challenge if you like and feel free to leave your link in my comment box so me and other readers could read about yours. 🙂

AVENUE Interview

After 7 weeks, 4 stylings and an interview, the AVENUE casting has finally come to an end yesterday.  All hardworks are finally paying off.  I was speechless when the interview panel said “Yes!” and sent me group invite on the spot.  I swore I would have sent a hug animation to the judges if it wasn’t because I wanted to look cool while leaving the interview room.

Also, congratulations to the rest of the models that have made it into AVENUE too.  I look forward to working with each of you in the future!

AVENUE is the second major casting I have done.  The experience was enriching and rewarding, and I got to try new stylings and push my own limits further with this opportunity.  So, for the interview round, we need to continue to dress to impress.  I have picked the jumpsuit from Zenith pairing it with a GField Bow Neck Top that I tinted to orange.  I picked these colours because Fall fashion and colours are one of the trends in this coming Spring and I used a men’s hair and more masculine accessory for a neutral look.

Thank you very much to all my friends that have supported me throughout the casting process.  You are the best!

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. 😉
