Pink, Green, Orange and love.

I’ve had a lot to think about, I’m still in a weird mood and I’m still trying to give sl a break. Mostly socially, which only means less time spent in sl and the time I’m on, focused on what I like doing. Don’t know if this phase is a acumulation of several feelings/situations I haven’t had the cold blood to step back or not get influenced by, however I’m still in love with clothes!..and I’m still in awe by the support, the kind words and the people that are worth, coming back, blogging, sharing thoughts with, and worth of my attention aswell. I’ve said in reply to friends words that lately all I take joy and pleasure of is, with no doubt, blogging. So that’s where all my thoughts will be directed to. I’m 3 days away from being 2 years old, and omg, maybe this is just a nostalgic phase I’m going through? Buh. As I think back and evaluate my sl experience, all I can be thankful for is the people I’ve met, the friends I’ve made and the experience of starting a blog and the (positive) feedback I’ve received from everyone. My last post, wasn’t a goodbye one, by no means I’ll give up doing what I love the most. I was just sharing my thoughts on how I feel about lot of things that have been going on, how the negativity/shallowness I see around affects me in a serious level. However I’ve always been able to not care/think or even make an effort to know about (or participate) in drama/be affected by it, so that’s what I’ll try to do again, from now on. As I’m turning ‘2 years old’ my blog is turning one year old. I started blogging on june 13th (2008) and OMG, as I look back it feels like it was yesterday. So bear with me (and my moods)  I plan on celebrating a year of blogging experience in a (hopefully) happy way/mood. With all this in mind and focusing on what I really *heart* doing, let me spam you a little bit. These outfits are a tribute to niniko vs BomBon (which I planned on putting together some time ago) and a special thank you to Sayuri for her kindness by sending me the (amazingly beautiful) goldfish dresses, which I couldn’t resist not wearing. Much ❤ Uma

…a day by the beach.

Ironically enough its raining cats and dogs today (in rl).  I am as depressed and pouty as I could be, so I decided to pretend and imagine how I’d love this day to be.  Sunny and warm and by the beach, drinking an espresso and watching the sun shine on the water. YES, that would have happened if it wasn’t such a sh*tty day. In sl however it can be whatever we want and I’m pretty sure it’s not raining all over the globe so..there I hope you like this outfit. The beret is my favorite (edited) piece, is part of Muism’s hair, edited off the hair and made it fit as I wanted to, slouchy and pretty much just how I wear my berets in rl, so we could say that was the inspiration. I opted to do a more warmer version of the same outfit, by adding Nylon’s jacket and taking off the top, which is pretty much what happens when you go to a coffee place by the beach here  in spring, while the sun is out you feel all warm but by the time the sun gets down, it gets slightly colder and you just put on a jacket to stay warm. ❤ Uma

..I’ve been told, Streets up there are lined with gold.

ugh, I had a bad bad weekend but I’ve decided to vent a little and blog some more. Just because it’s a good distraction and sundays really suck. This was an easy to put together outfit, more colorful than I feel today and my favorite piece is Dela’s ‘Bette’ jacket. I might have to do a couple of more looks with it since it’s sooo cute. I’ve had this couverture dress for a while now aswell, and I decided to edit it a bit, making it somewhat like a long top, so I could wear some shorts with it and make it more casual and fun. Since I saw Courtisane’s newest bags, I knew I wouldn’t resist them and it’s obvious I didn’t. I love all the colors of this look, the reds and oranges/peache colors, and giana’s ({HTD})  new hair seemed also perfect with it. Very boho-ish like. Hope you like it ❤ Uma

Namasté Zaara

I have been awaiting to see Zaara’s new pieces released! Impatiently I may say, since her mastery on each creation and her textures have made me a fan since day one. How could I not resist putting an outfit together with her Inka jacket? …Nuu, I couldn’t. It’s again, beautifully done, something we can always expect from Zaara and somewhat a translation into our modern days of what we can see in her ‘traditional’ work. ❤ ❤ ❤ it! Also, I am so happpppyyy, lamb keeps working on new hair, and has been since day one and we can only confirm the skills and how yummy and refreshing they are. YAY! A fav again! This one will be released later today at a place we so well know 😉 AND..though I haven’t  gone very ethnic/boho here, which I could easily go for, but there are definitely small details that of course are inspired by it and I hope you like it! Have a great weekend ❤ Uma!

Syrup & Honey

Hi! ^^ So, I remember Ivalde, being one of the first stores I visited back when I was a noob. I was challenged to pick some pieces from Ivalde and put an outfit together with my choices. As a sign of respect for Neferia’s work and because I have always admired it, (more than just to accept a challenge)  I’ve decided to put two outfits together with two Ivalde pieces I already had. One being probably my favorite (70’s inspired) coat and probably one of my favorite and must have pieces. Comes with 2 versions, longer and shorter. Also, this will probably be my last ‘boho’ look for a while, though it is more hippie inspired than usual. The other piece I chose is part of a whole outfit but I’ve decided to wear just the shirt and mash it up with other things. Puff sleeves + stripes, something I cannot resist. Again, they’re totally different from each other and I hope you like it, xoxo ❤ Uma

Boho part III – asian pattern.

Hiiiiiiii! Ok, so let me tell you something. Boho will never go out of style. It may be reinvented, in patterns or accessories, but it will never be out dated.  Say, for instance, the feather trends that has been creeping up on catwalks since last summer, on headbands and hair accessories, or, the re-emerged earthy printed skirts, floral blouses, layered sweaters and even crochet?…I mean, you speak of spring and summer, and you (or I do) think of loose bohemian chic loose tunics, drapping dresses or one shoulder tops, chunky arts and crafts necklaces, ethnic accessories…god! It may walk hand in hand with totally different styles and trends but believe me, it will be hard to get out dated. Some say ‘Foho’ is the new boho (a more understated, eclectic mix, fusing classic Boho elements – crochet trims and hippie prints for example – with more subtle folk pieces, such as washed-out denims). Anyways, find a high quality boho tunic, loose and feminine, pair it with a good belt to give it some structure (if you need it) and your wide leg pants or skinny jeans, and some good high heeled shoes or even flats, or other accessories, and you can’t go wrong, trust me! However, I’ve gone a little asian inspired. I have to thank my hubby, for finding for me, the most amazing asian patterned tunic! While on a quest for a good asian inspired build, baba  found this little store and tp’ed me right away, knowing I’d love this. Was not wrong, I fell in love with it…and you’ll know why when you see the pictures. Amazing texture and awesome structure. Love love love it, and there’s nothing else I could add to it, it makes the whole outfit. ❤ Uma

Boho . Part II

Oooooohhhhh, I am so excited.  Mostly because today I really felt inspired and I absolutely adore the outfit I’ve put together. Maybe it’s just me but I am really eager for summer, I’m done with winter, with cold, with rain and the last few days it have been sunny and warm outside and I can almost ‘smell’ spring.  So with that in mind I bring you another ‘boho’ inspired look. Something I’d definitely be seen wearing. I was feeling a little torn between detour flats or J’s wedges but since I’ve been wearing a lot of flats lately I’ve opted for J’s. Now, what I really love about this outfit are the colors and how they blend with each other. How Giana’s vest and hippie shorts match perfectly &bean bordeaux pants and the tones both in Zaara’s scarf and Akeyo’s hat. Also, The fact Junwave hairs are scripted and you can resize each prim as you wish makes it PERFECT to fit right with the hats and way easier to work with. I have been playing around in sl, mostly around my house snapping pictures of house chores, so for the fun of it I’m going to show you what I’ve been up to LOl, because really I’m not just a shopaholic, or fashion addicted, I’m good around the house too. check here XD ❤ Uma
