Black and White . Cute and Sleek

YAY! I managed to come back again. I’ve been slightly busy with at least 3 projects going on at the same time (I’ll share with you when the time comes) and god knows how I’ve been going from one place an the other, and then hiding in my cocoon. However I don’t like to neglect blogging, my little place, ‘home’ even. So  I had the time to put some stuff together. I wanted to make somewhat of a connection between these two looks, basically in terms of colors, at least. One being a more kawaii-like the other a more sleek look. I just wanted to go a little ‘versatile’ wearing same things in both looks, or similar, and still put together two different looks. I’ve stated a million times how I absolutely *love* chapeau tres mignon hats, so when I saw abra’s awesome look with mickey’s hat and after Rinka kindly sending over this shirt I knew I wouldn’t resist it, I just had to wear both. On the second look, I wanted to be able to use the same/similar things as base, and do a more sleek look. Digit Darke’s newest release seemed perfect. It’s a whole long dress but I opted to just wear the shirt. The dress is quite beautiful though. So, same skirt, shoes and leggings..slightly different, for however you’re in the mood for. ❤ Uma

Bijou!

As some of you may have, I was honored and happy to be invited by Kotobuki and Emi to the preview/pre-opening of Bijou’s new store and sim – Bijouaholic. I took a little trip around the new store, which is bigger and more ambitious but I was also anxious to see the new outfits. I had a hard time choosing what I wanted the most, but finally after walking around bijou’s gorgeous store I had made up my mind. Congrats Kotobuki!! ❤ I was dressed in a very relaxed way, streetwear like, so I couldn’t resist showing you my ‘shopping day outfit’ aswell. I WAS COLD. *scroll down for bijou awesomeness* ❤ Uma

Of course it didn’t last long until I changed, regarding how I had just got new clothes. >_< I have to say apart from my favorite Bijou’s pieces, the shoes have a real important ‘role’ (lol) in these outfits. I was talking to Kotobuki when I noticed these fab shoes she was wearing, with funky purple heel color so I had to tp to that store and check them myself. To My surprise, I found more than I would even like to and of course spent more than I should. They’re awesome, I don’t know why I haven’t ‘heard’ or seen them before at all. I have certainly overspent my budget but came home as happy as a little girl in a candy store. ❤ 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

Plaid..plaid..and..oh, more plaid?

Or tartan, in any way color or shape you want! We could say it’s a big autumn/fall trend this year and its not different in sl! It can be worn in a variety of ways, skinny pants, jackets, dresses, skirts or scarfs, you name it. Rather than the traditional red tartans, this year, plaid embraces a palette of muted greys, blues, greens and browns. Whether it’s ‘preppy’, ‘grunge’ or ‘country chic’, it is back, full power! That’s why I decided to put on three looks, with the ‘recent’ Muism’s release of tartan pants, (of course) in a more basic way, because sometimes we’re a little limited in sl and this might just be the first of more ‘tartan’ dedicated posts. Mix it how you want! ❤ Uma

street smart.

So after a long weekend and the whole hair fair excitement I had the pleasure to collaborate with Miabella for her lovely blog http://imagendivine.com/blog/and sometimes It’s a bit more fun to work together and play around with outfits and seeing how inspiration flows easier when two minds think alike 🙂 . Hopefully it won’t be the last time. Going out of the blogging alone routine is always a plus. But I also wanted to share a look I’ve put together today which I felt very comfy/happy with and with some pieces from stores I haven’t blogged before. The ‘bolero’ is probably my favourite item so far and the inspiration piece behind this whole look. It’s very casual like, something I’d be seen wearing on a daily basis. Now, Calypso’s jeans are amazing, but I have to say my favourite piece is definately the stripey top in which I fell in love with. The back detail made me swoon as soon as I saw it. ❤
