Dango’s girls!

Dango Jewell is by far, one of my favorite bloggers ever!..She recently asked me and a couple of her (blogger) friends (some of them,  girls I have for so long admired, both as awesome human beings and talented bloggers) and decided to gather us, for a black themed look. It was an honor both as a friend and as a fan to be part of it, so I decided I’d share this picture she took of us in this post. Don’t we all look fieeeerce? check  dango’s blog for credits!!! ❤ 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

Pink Candy!

That’s how I feel today, like  a little pink snowball or candy! There are some days that clothes just inspire you and cheer you up! I know it must sound weird for some of you who don’t feel the same, but this outfit did it for me. Pink is not everyone’s favorite color I know, it’s not my favorite either, but today for some reason pink warmed my heart! Tosl has released these ‘sweater willies’ and I couldn’t wait to log to get me some! They’re just too sweet and comfortable looking! OMG, I’d buy them pink in rl too at the risk of looking barbie-ish! I wouldn’t  care! Also, dp yumyum has this ‘down vest’ on a lucky chair and the other day I tp’ed there hoping I’d see a ‘U’, little did I know I only had to wait around for 8mins to get it! I’m so happy I was lucky this time and didn’t give up!..If you have some free time, make sure you go there and even wait a while because it’s too cute not to have it in your closet!! Hope you have a great week! ❤ 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
shopping day outfit
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.

Colourfall Sunday

I think I’m on a roll of earthy colors, lately. Of course it has everything to do with the season and my mood. So again, I chose brown and green with a ‘little’ touch of gray. I have edited a bunch, mod and tinted. I have fun doing it and playing with layers of clothes. Making it work and making it my own. This time there’s no contrasty colors, matching both clothes with accessories. There’s only one thing I couldn’t decide on today, which shoes to wear. We can never have too many right? Sweetest goodbye boots, or the london flats from Detour? I like them both as much, London’s wrinkley leather flats are just as cute as new SG boots, so I couldn’t make up my mind. Overall I really like this outfit and its just as comfortable as it is warm. ❤ Uma.

Sunday Chic

This time going for an elegant outfit, focused solely on two colors, black and a dark teal. Teal is probably one of my all time favorite colors so when I saw Bianca F’s new releases, I had to have this one. here I’m wearing (the top of) ‘model5’. Wonderful and creative shape, and beautiful texture! Paired with Jador diamond earrings, and cachet’s bag. I am in love with the graphics on this bag, but personally I have to say I’d love to have the possibility to make it smaller, clutch size like. What do you think? Either way, I absolutely love it and it matches perfectly with the top giving it a good finishing touch! ❤ Uma.
