[LeLutka]…Distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December

It’s been a while…I have not been so overwhelmed with a collection like I was with Lelutka’s. Not a surprise? There were a couple of things that made this sunday, an epic fashion day.  From the background music (which was perfect), the organization (which was flawless), the detail of making the guests dress in same outfit (decreasing the lag and suiting the mood of the show), to the models structing their way down the runway, and letting us (poor slow rezzers) see the details of each outfit, and of course the whole Lelutka collection. Adding to all this, I was thrilled to see a good friend (anya ohmai) doing an amazing collab with LeLutka and being able to show (to a wider clientele) her awesome skills and creativity! What a breathe of fresh air there!..I was especially surprised with the attention on the details of each outfit. The harnesses, the shown skirt cages, neck pieces, corsets! Details that made this collection rarely unique, from all I’ve seen so far in sl. From ancient roman inspiration  (in metal torso and helmet coverages but without the obvious drapping inspiration) , to victorian details like corsets and lace and inspirations like alexander mcqueen’s aw 09, and even more futuristic cyborg-ish details or the balmain shoulders… Lelutka’s collection incorporated all the ‘rl trends’, feathers, metal, fringes, spikes, lace, flower prints, nude tones, shoulder pads, not so understated accessories, in one concize collection. The best part of this, is knowing, it can all be mixed and matched and worn in a more ‘day to day’ basics or (and) by any kind style we’re into. Try it, have fun. ❤ Uma

I am not one to wear a lot of jewellery in my posts (as you can confirm), probably because of my rl background with designing it, but sometimes, there are some pieces that are a true  inspiration for me. LaGyo work have that effect over me, this amazing necklace is part of a soon to be released ‘skulls’ collection. It is called ‘Dangerous wings‘ and it’s not only hypnotic (can’t stop staring at it) but a statement piece. Truly beautiful. ❤ Uma

The little black dress!

The perfect dress, for the perfect shoes. I love myself a full black outfit, but not disregarding the fact I like it cool, modern, and a bitsy itsy cute. Sometimes, finding the perfect match for those killer shoes, is difficult. !Ohmai’s ‘shift dress’, made for 50 lindens (black) friday,  is the one.  Match made in heaven, love at first sight. I am in LOVE with the simplicity and clean cut of this dress. It feels a bit of an oriental inspiration with an obvious futuristic feel to it, and a touch of soft discrete cuteness to it, only Anya could bring us. ❤ joo anypoo! The sleeves, OhmaiGOD, the sleeves…hands down my favorite little (unique) black dress ever. ❤ Uma

I rarely wear elf ears but I couldn’t resist showing you these, how cute are the little ‘birds’ detail on the tip of these ears? Gotta see it for yourself. Thank you Aikea, you’re an elf genius.

So today I really wanted to make a look, that chanelled a bit of my grandms, then I started recalling old mum’s pic, back in the late 60s, she wore these round sunglasses and long trenchs/coats, with short skirts and seriously a lot of shirts over sweaters, maybe she had some sort of obsession with those, and her chignons with braids..zomg.  Yeah, I really love her old pics! Tres Blah’s ‘nerdy chic glasses’ (for 5o linden fridays) were really my inspiration to dress up today! ❤ Uma

GRANNY ARISTOCRAT INDY2

*COCO*’s shirt and !Lagyo’s necklace were my second inspiration for the outfit on the left (top pic), and So Many Style’s (soon to be released) jacket and Kao sand’s boots to middle one. I really love these looks (which are mostly done out of old stuff really) if they have anything in common, I guess I’d say the glasses and the details of brown…hope you like it! muah muah!

My love for accessories, My need to feel warm!

This post’s name, says it all. ALL in one. In one outfit. ❤ ! I love accessories, I love them cluttered all around my lil body (and if only I could wear more in sl I WOULD) , I love berets, I love this poncho, I love leggings and I love socks…and socks with sandals. Lol. Yeah, because season’s shouldn’t determine when or if we should (or not) wear opened shoes and though for most might look super weird, I don’t care >_< no I don’t, ’cause I think it looks cute!!…I was listening to Múm when I put this together and it seemed so appropriate, so cold and so warm, just like how  I was feeling and in need for. ❤ Uma

ECLAT!

Quote of the day : ”There is so much hate among people, so much contempt inside people who’d like you to think they’re moral, that they have to hire ”prizefighters” to do their hating for them. And we do. We get into a ring and act out other people’s hates.”

Ha-ih!

I had not planned for this post to be a review. Nor do I think it is, though I feel like expressing my opinion, or, my random thoughts about it. So pardon my rambling…I’ve been pointed to, some rather funny, some thougtful and other rather partial ‘reviews’ of LeLutka’s new skins so I thought I needed to have a saying on it/them. I’ve read a lot about how much people were expecting and eager for Lelutka’s skins to be released and how people thought they ‘looked ugly in them’.  The fact a skin does not look good on you, doesn’t mean the skin itself is ugly looking. Maybe and without the intention of sounding too rude, your shape doesn’t fit it, it is not the best for it, or maybe your shape is just plain ugly. Being beautiful or ugly, is always relative (each and everyone have their own opinion, input and perspective about it) you cannot judge a skin because it doesn’t fit your avi. That is not equal to saying a skin is UGLY.

Second thing I noticed was people complaining about the eyebrows. More than anything else, which apparently ‘perplexed’ a lot of  ‘you’ ! It’s funny because in the past a lot have complained about how ‘overly plucked’ the eyebrows seemed and now, they’re just NOT enough.  Rather than thinking they’re just too ‘bushy’, you could think, now you have two options (both in old and new skins), to have more plucked and more ‘natural’ looking eyebrows. I personally think a little tweak on your eyebrows SHAPE, makes a whole and big difference, and you can actually DO THAT.

Not that skins should follow a trend, but one has clearly not noticed Alexander Wang‘s latest collection (as far as face/hair goes, eyebrows are rather ‘natural’/thick looking and hair, omg, hair!..PLEASE someone make an alexander wang braid look a like hair). I love truth’s (romy) but can we has a more careless (longer/thinner) one and since I’m whining (and on) about it, why not call it oomsie?..LOL!..joke..I guess. 😦

Another thing I noticed people pointing out, was the nose. Now this is a personal and rather partial opinion. I love the nose shading and how it’s enhanced. Here I can understand people do not fully agree, and may think otherwise, but I dig it. It gives us a whole different look. For most might not work, but for me, it just stands out from the ‘old’ lelutka skins and gives the face both, different character and features. It’s exactly those two things that give ECLAT‘s, a stronger and different character, and thats why I personally love it.

Minnu’s personal ‘touch’ or magic touch for some, is still there (you can recognize her ‘signature’) and you may not love eclat as much as you loved london or moscow or any of her  ‘older’ skins, but honestly, in the end, is how much you feel ‘yourself’, or as ‘beautiful’ as you want to  feel and that will always be debatable. Always questionable.

As for my own opinion, I really like them. Especially the fair, light and sun kissed tones (freckles and hairbase!! yay!). The make up is rather ‘classic’, from the back eyeshadow, to the darker lips, the ‘ice’ queen look with more muted colors both in eye and lips and the natural kind. There’s no crazy/excessive make up but that only adds to more possibilities and day to day basis look or a more polished one when you feel like it. MUAHS ❤ Uma

p.s. I AM no longer running or living through or by sl times but rl ones. Therefore, I am not here to blog about what’s ‘new’ or what’s just ‘released’ and whenever I blog, I blog because I love it, no matter how many times it was blogged before, or if it was blogged ‘years’ ago. Sometimes and most of times (here), it’s just about clothes, about styling, about re-inventing ourselves and our clothes (as I repeated so many times) and though it is surely about sl, it is never about who got it first or who wore it first. ❤ Uma

Fur is NOT dead!

At least, not faux fur! The most faux it could be..ehe!I don’t wear (real) fur in rl, besides leather jackets and..well, pretty much all things leather. Pft, blame me…But again here’s the controversy, I cannot say it doesn’t look just amazing. Hell I’d be an hipocrit if I said so. However, I choose not to wear it. I’m not one of those who go around fashion shows with ‘anti-fur’ signs throwing eggs at people who wear it, but I do judge people who do wear it, who sport their furrilicious coats, stoles..and what not. See, for a well rounded, educated, wise, SANE, person, this is not portrait or a sign of status but a sign of ignorance and blatant stupidity. That’s how I see it. I would just love to see someone replic a real fur (in rl) as well as in second life. AHA! So on to what I mean to say…Nicky Ree‘s ‘Avana fur coat‘ is..one of the most amazing pieces I’ve seen/worn in sl so far. OMGAH! Not only is just..well, amazing (can’t think of other words) it works perfectly with my ao, and hell, if it didn’t I would totally make it work. I’ve decided to make a, rather simple look, and I had planned to make more, but I was so so so so lazy.  I might come back with different looks with this jacket, and please bear, with me, I absolutely love it! So I will do so, in the next days to come…nomnomnom! ❤ Uma
