Soaking in the sun

Growing up in a tropical country where sun and humidity is in our everyday’s lives, I have not come to appreciate the sun so much until I have moved to a four-season country with shorter daylight and extreme winter condition at times.  Don’t get me wrong, not that I don’t like the sun but when one have too much of something, it is often being taken for granted…but I will never say the same again about that beautiful sunshine.

This summer I have learned to enjoy myself more outdoor and soaking in the sun.  It feels really good and uplifting….so I have decided to do it again today in my lovely tropical bikini from Shiki Designs.  I love the prints on the bikini because it is very colourful and they remind me of where I came from.

For my beach styling today, I did a playful look with the latest hair from tram available at the Hair Fair 2013, matching it with a pair of neko ears from Pr!tty as well as a seaband from Exile.

Enjoy the rest of your summer everyone!

Metro

Living in the metropolitan city can be both exciting and depressing sometimes. It is vibrant during the day but stinky on a humid rainny day.  There are many ways to look at a city and I guess when we choose to live in one, we need to learn to love it.

For me, this is what the Shiki Metropolitan dress is all about.  The prints made up of many shapes and blocks, stacking on one another and at times look confusing, turned out to be a fabulous, modern and statement piece as an overall.

I am loving my metro, my city. 🙂

Urban Symmetry by SHIKI Designs (S/S ’13 Collections)

SHIKI Designs has a lot of good things going on at this Spring & Summer (S/S).  The soon to be released S/S collections, Urban Symmetry, at the AVENUE Fashion Week (starting March 31) has really original and creative concept.  Not to mention, it is a huge leap for SHIKI to be creating its’ own mesh this season.

The idea behind of “Urban Symmetry” is taking the most unflattering and dull objects within the City and turn them into detailed fabric; object such as bricks, wired fences, discarded cans, rotten leaves, and garbage netting.  Shinichi and Vinn would like to take a positive approach, by showing us that even the simpliest things in life can also be very beautiful, by changing what is visually unappreciated objects to something that is exquisite and elegant.  This includes adopting simplicity, intricacy and geometry patterns to create that clean visions in their designs.

The Bedazzled Couture gown that I am wearing for example, is the inspiration from wired fence.  This dress has a double pointed bodice that symbolize energy and motion.  I especially like the midnight blue colour, it reflects classy and empowerment.

Hakuna Matata

OK, so my subject has no relation to my post today.  It’s just a phrase that I would like to remind myself.  Hakuna Matata it means no worries. 🙂

The two numbers I have today are from SHIKI, actually there are three because I mixed two of the outfits in one of my stylings.

Angelus Obscurus and Regina are exclusive creations made for the Avenue Cinque event.  Both gowns in beautiful black shades and flexi skirt prims look really good when mixed together! I just hope my photography has done justice to these gowns.

I am wearing the top from the Angelus set and the waist and skirt prims from Regina.  You can definitely try a different matching,  They are very versatile, you will be able to create your own gowns easily.

The third gown, Helvana, is one of the most recent releases from Shinichi-san, from the collection in collaboration with Vinn Wong, a RL artist.  To find out more about Vinn Wong, visit his website here.

The version of Helvana gown I am wearing is called Ashen.  Purple is my favourite shades and I admire how the shades of pink, purple, plum, green, white and silver are blended on this lovely gown.  The silky black base just allows the prints shine and drop shoulder and fur give some glam touch to the gown.
