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.

Another day…

And yet again another outfit. As you may have seen on Fashion Feed or at MG fashion blog, Maria Gherardi has released some new goodies. Maria is (in my opinion) probably the best portuguese designer around the grid and though I had planned to say a little word or two before about her amazing work, I have decided to do it now. Though she may not know this, I have always been a fan of her work. Extremely creative, great attention on details and awesome work on textures is basically what describes her creations and what we can expect all the time. This time is no exception. The new Vest&Jacket is beautifully done and basically what made me put these outfits together and come back to blog about. Also, Emilia has released a new line of skins which probably you have seen already and there is no doubt I am a big Redgrave fan so I had to ‘slip’ on one of them. I have come to aknowledge that I should stop doing it because I instantly know I’m going to fall in love with it. Bummer! I did! *Also, and on a (BIG) small note, I have to thank a good friend of mine, Longefellow (and apologize for not have done it before) for thoughtfully sending me a notecard with all the instructions to add slurls/links and what not. I did it Longies!! see see?* ❤ Uma

Mellow Autumn

You might think I over did it with so many ‘layers’ and all but I really enjoyed putting this outfit together. Of course this is just my personal choice of look, slightly country(ish) inspired, with a little school girl touch. Japanese designers inspire me so and I am such a fan that most of the pieces you see here, are from japanese creators. If you go through most of my posts, there’s always a thing or two from some of my favorite japanese stores. Big fan, obviously. ❤ Uma.

cardi girl.

When I think of it, this isn’t much of the type of looks I usually do, but for some reason ‘preppy-girl next door’ (??) look suited me today. I could quote mama esmie (if you know me you certainly know her), she said I looked like a ‘well behaved’ girl today then added that I AM NOT. Well I could certainly refute that but let’s cut to the chase. My favorite pieces on these looks are obviously the cardigans, and again, for some reason I opted to show you two different looks, let’s say I like versatility. I met Katx by accident one day at Aoharu and after some bonding around lucky chairs (uh, mm yeah I do that sometimes, when I’m around them) I got curious about her little store. It turned out to be a very promising, and pleasing surprise. Lot’s of cute stuff and undeniable bargains. The cardis are definitely a must have and my favorite piece! On a small note, how awesome are these shoes? One of my best finds so far I have to say. They just made my day! ❤ Uma

monday bargain.

OMG. For all of you who didn’t know, I have ‘lost’ my internet connection since friday and though rl made me feel busy till saturday, sunday and ‘today’ was hell for me. I was literally close to cutting my wrists IF insulting cable guys wasn’t so therapeutic. I am back though and back with a monday bargain, because, it is still monday for me at least. Fortunately I came back to everything I expected and more. First thing I did, appart from hugging and slapping friends, trying to avoid gossips and missing a whole lot of shopping was getting new soho boots from Maitreya. Onyx, could you please stop trying to kill me? They’re so good it hurts. The tartan coat is obviously, the little cute bargain I wanted to show you. Shanghai magic has the cutest stuff and this coat was my choice for today. For only 50 (mod) Lindens, how can you resist it? I have actually made a shorter version, but here I just took the belt out and replaced it with another one. Its lovely, at the store you can find 3 (or 4) different colors. so..enjoy ❤ and welcome me back (3 days away felt like an eternity) 😉

How to make a difference

See, this is probably not an outfit you see and go WOW!..And, you probably recognize a lot of things in it. But if there’s anything I take great pleasure in doing, it’s grabbing what I already have and giving it a whole different look/twist. Reinventing it! That’s pretty much what I did with the top part of Gisaci’s (Lima) Trench Coat, by choosing to give it a ‘shirt’ look and pairing it with a highwaist skirt from ICING! I absolutely love the cleavage on this trench coat, and that was part of the reason I chose to wear it in a different way. I had been looking for a bow belt, but something I could be able to mod and make it big, since that was the whole idea behind this look/outfit. In the back of my head I was trying to figure out where to find exactly what I wanted and something a little more original than what we see around. I have to say I had to mod the hell out of this sweetest goodbye outfit, since the ‘belt’ was attached to the skirt but it was mod and (thank god) it was all I needed to finish this! ❤ Uma

Classic Simplicity

I’ll make it short and sweet as usual! So yes, Cachet’s new collection/line is out and ready for you to grab it! Personally I’m happy to see some ‘more’ casual pieces, yet not common, with all the colors fall asks for and some wonderful pieces to mix and match with whatever you have on your closet! So I chose some softer tones, neutral classic ones for a change! Especially in comparison to my last post! Oh yes, while walking down the street this was what was playing on my ipod ‘kings of leon . sex on fire’ ! Go figure ❤ Uma
