Pig can do it!

Hey everyone! I had this outfit kind of prepared to blog on friday but I had an hectic weekend and I know I have missed a lot since then. Anyways, because I love Apatia, and I’m a fan of Pig, I wanted to post this..even if its this late. As I was putting it together the trixie hair seemed perfect for it and that’s when  it recalled me of this iconic image/poster by graphic artist, J. Howard Miller. Yes, ‘We can do it’ ^^ I know I should’ve made it better but I didn’t really feel like changing it today, it fits the purpose. At the same time, I feel soooo left out of so many awesome releases this weekend I might come back again, just to bug you a little bit more. ❤ Uma

Milk Motion . Absolute Love!

It isn’t a surprise that I’m a Milk Motion addict/fan. Not news and at the risk of sounding partial, along with a few other designers, it is my opinion that Marie is in the top ’10’. If lately there’s a designer ‘setting trends’ or actually having  the skills/ideas to bring them onto sl and make an exquisit work, that person IS Marie Lauridsen. She is restless and her creations top notch. You could disagree but some of my favorite pieces, she made  them, and I keep wearing them on and off . If her last release,  ‘my admiral jacket’ made my chin drop this time I’m head over heels in love with ‘my belted jacket‘. Absolutely in love with this jacket and leggings. ❤ ❤ ❤ thank you so much for spoiling me Marie and thank you for keeping creating some of my favorite pieces ever ! ❤ Uma

Orchid delight

I’ve always been a fan, though from afar, of Miko Omegamu‘s creations (the heart and creative mind behind *ICING*). They’re always very delicate, romantic, vintage inspired, and ever so classy. I’ve had the honor to receive Miko’s latest creation and for the first time, I finally found a way to deconstruct it (though successfully I hope) and make my interpretation of how we can wear this absolutely amazing dress. Thank you so much miko! You can see the amount of dedication and thought behind it no doubt. From the off shoulder sleeves and vines delicately adorning the bodice to the amazing orchid  corsage covering part of the top up to the sleeve. Perfection! One can wear the dress in all its glory, or choose to mix and match with other pieces. I’ve opted for 3 looks. The complete look with the ‘orchid delight‘ dress, one more ‘dressed down’ with the top and a flower (color) matching skirt (part of ‘keiko tunic’) and the last one with Maitreya High waisted skirt – all with the same colors as common bond. I personally like them all and it’s just another way to show you how we can have an outfit and turn it into more than one. ❤ Uma

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

*New* from Miel!

What’s better than waking up to awesome news? Miel has a new release in store and as usual it’s amazing. I am already a BIG  fan of Miel and Mika‘s work and I’m so happy to know they like what I do here. Thank you for sharing it with me!! ❤ Considering Miel is a totally new store I am amazed at their hard work and dedication on each item they create. This set is called ‘am tulip’ and it’s just perfect to mix and match with almost everything in our closet. The tops, as usual come with diferent options, with and without pocket and with and without prim flowers. There’s also a flowery headband and frilly skirt and belt, (everything resizable by script) and there is 3 colors to choose from : Vino, Champagne and licorice. Everything is just…YUMS! I decided to make a whole outfit with Miel ‘am tulip‘ set and the other two are a mix and match of Miel’s tops and other pieces in my closet. Hope you like it and do check it out, ❤ Uma
