System overload

OH yeah, I’m back (or black) for more! Who would have thought I’d do an 180º degree turn from ‘retro’ to urban that fast. But yes! Soooo…this time I decided to put an outfit together, that came out of the blue and turned to, basically umm, black. As I was dressing ‘up’ today and listening to Love lockdown from Kanye west, everything made sense and came together.  Some time ago Omnia oh has presented me with some upcoming skin releases from beauty avatar, and little did I know I’d fall for so fast for ‘Diana’. However, I have to say this skin is amazing, I haven’t changed my shape for it at all, and even though I didn’t, I love the way it looks. This chocolate color skin is just yummi, plump glossy lips, perfect tone, great features. AH, the finishing touch I needed for this whole look. For blogging I usually think of the best way to put an outfit together, and that not only means clothes but skin, background and basically the right attitude. That being said, I hope you like it. ❤ Uma.

Vintage rétrospectif – ‘the secret keeper’

While usually my style is more modern looking, it’s always a little bit retro/vintage inspired. Irl and in my country is not always easy to find second hand shops with great vintage or retro pieces, and when it doesn’t happen the best way to achieve that kind of ‘style’ is looking for what I’d call visually inspired pieces. You know, the kind that aren’t really vintage but look like it. However, in sl that’s all we have. So today that’s what I chose to put together. In this outfit I feel very feminine/girly and old fashioned looking, with a ‘modern’ twist. There are a few pieces I’d say they could be found in a second hand shop, like the corsage or the bag and the checkered ‘dress’. In fact they were real bargains. The check dress is very similar to a rl one I have called ‘the secret keeper’ by a french designer and it only cost me 12L. The corsage was only 15L so if we had anything similar to a thrift or second hand shop pieces these would probably be it. Now, in the last two posts I’ve been sporting different skins, this one was sent to me by Ai Baroque, owner of Lyriope skin and basically as soon as I tried it on, It didn’t feel like the typical glowy, over the top make up, I felt very comfortably natural with it. For me, skins are all about the face and this one just exhales ‘strong personality’, and has a somewhat androgynous expression to it. if that makes sense to you. Also, if you happen to check the store I got the checkered dress don’t expect much clothing, its basically a hair store and they’re all around 60L. Hope you like this look. ❤ Uma

Snow Doll

I have been on a blog roll lately, but it’s past midnight and I can alledgedly say it’s Wednesday. Therefore another ‘day’. 😀 I love dressing in sl according to our rl season. It’s definitely not snowing here (yay!) but I have to say I love the snowy magical side of sl. It warms my heart (and pixels) to see it, and winter means warm clothes too. I tend to dress in a more kawaii way, gloves, knit caps, umbrellas, scarves, comfy boots. This time was no different, if I have to get out of my house I’ll do it prepared to face the ‘worse’ weather ever, but I added some color to this outfit, I’m in a happy mood. ❤ Uma

Newsie

So I’m back to what I’d call the ‘look of the day’ (or the day before). For some reason this whole outfit reminds me of the ‘newspaperboy’ look. Maybe because of the cap, which reminds me of the late 19th (early 20th century) trend of berets amongst the boys and young adults of the time and became associated with the newsboy look. Ok, so putting it that way I’m not sure I look feminine at all? But I do think It looks cute. Contradict me if I’m wrong. The long shorts are an ‘old’ kurotsubaki item I have always loved so I’m happy to after a year take them out of the closet and wear them again. Plaid? Check. The bag is from plod, which I’ve blogged before, only this time I chose to wear the 2nd option called ‘Travel’, (made it smaller) and I think this is one of those looks that would be missing something if I didn’t wear it. Both beret and the awesome jacket with this worn/vintage look can be found at Malt fashions a store that I like to visit once in a while. I could’ve worn a million different haircuts here, but the awesome ‘sun’ from maitreya did give it a little edge to the whole boyish look. Hope you like it, ❤ Uma

Hall of ‘Fame’

Hi everyone! As you noticed we saw a lot of good things released over the weekend. Maitreya collaborating with Emery creating a themed ‘table’ of restyled items, 80’s inspired was probably the unexpected surprise and the most wanted. I had to grab a few things myself. They were inspired by London’s early 80’s ‘glam punk’ soooo, I decided to put an outfit together, with that thought in mind combined with what at the time was also a great hit on tv – Fame. The leggings, leg warmers, high heels and what not. Apart from the sweater and leggings everything else you see here is maitreya’s or emery. The leggings were only 1L so that’s a real bargain and though some of us may be ‘scared’ of wearing animal print I’m not. For the time being at least. You’ll see a lot of leopard prints revival in 2009. I think the secret of wearing this trend successfully is to relate the volume of pattern to your personality aswell. It gets me thinking of how much of it will see around sl. Hope you like it ❤ Uma.

This is not laundry day.

And this is definitely not how I dress when i do my laundry. I had put this outfit together on friday but since then I couldn’t log back.  So first thing I did when I logged back was shoot it. Don’t ask me why I’ve shot it with my laundry machine, because I have no excuse but being tired and hungover. However if anything, you should check ‘blonde’. I’m a sucker for retro objects, and furniture and this store is heaven on slearth for great retro looking (especially kitchen) furniture. I don’t think you’ll resist it!! ❤ Uma

I decided before I blogged the (2nd) look I didn’t end up showing on the ‘say hi to your mum’ post, to just share today’s look with you. See elka, we can have food on our hair too!! I swear I don’t usually run around with cupcakes in my rl hair, well, not lately no. I promise I’ll get serious soon. >_<
cupcakes anyone?
Now on to the look I had planned to show you a couple of days ago. The inspiration was basically MMS new Mary kate hair. I was thinking of doing a mary kate/ashley inspired look but as things progressed it turned out being a little different but still interesting. It’s just a style tip with things we may have already mixed with some more recent ones. Hope you like it ❤ Uma
