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

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

*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

Kiss my…sailor tank top

I’ve Been postponing to blog this look, but since Marie released ‘our’ sailor tank tops, I have been obsessed with them. Changing, as I do often, but always going back to wear them. So here’s a very simple look but which I looooves. Also, love these *ordinary* ‘tarsier’ sneakers. Picture doesnt do justice to them, but they’re supposed to be ALL white, lol, however it comes with 7 different colors of your choice. Pretty awesome! ❤ Uma

Thought of the day :

”Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” (by Martin L.K.)

Come this way

Black Chant

black chant

“Come this way” — some say with sweet eyes,
Opening their arms, and sure
That it could be good that I would listen to them
When they say: “Come this way”!
I look at them with unattached eyes,
(In my eyes there is irony and tiredness)
And I cross my arms,
And I never go that way…
This is my glory:
To create inhumanity!
Never to accompany anybody.
—For I live with the same unwillingness
I teared my mother’s womb with.
No, I won’t go that way! I only go through where
My own steps take me…
If what I search to know none of you can answer,
Why do you repeat: “Come this way”?
I prefer to slide on muddy corners,
To whirl at the wind,
Like rags, to drag my bleeding feet,
Than to go that way…
If I came to the world, was
Only to deflower virgin rain-forests,
And to draw my own feet on the unexplored sand!
All the rest I do is worth nothing.
How come you are the ones
Who will give me axes, tools and courage,
For I to throw down my obstacles?…
It runs, in your veins, the old blood of the grand-parents,
And you love what is easy!
I love the Far and the Mirage,
I love the abysses, the torrents, the deserts…
Go! you have roads,
You have gardens, you have flower-beds,
You have homelands, you have roofs,
And you have rules, and treatises, and philosophers, and wisemen.
I have my Madness!
I hold it high, like a torch, burning in the dark night,
And I feel foam, and blood, and chants on the lips…
God and the Devil are the ones who guide me, nobody else.
All of you had a father, all of you had a mother;
But I, who never start or end,
I was born from the love between God and the Devil.
Hah! That nobody gives me pious intentions!
That nobody asks me for definitions!
That nobody tells me: “Come this way”!
My life is a storm-wind that got unlocked.
It is a wave that has risen.
It is an extra atom that got animated…
I don’t know where I’m going through,
I don’t know where I’m going,
—I know I’m not going that way.

This is a (poor) translation of a  poem called, ‘cântigo negro‘ (Black Chant) written by a portuguese poet called, José Régio and one of my all time favorites. Lazy doing no justice to outfit pics by yours truly ❤ Uma

Gah Gah

Found this awesome ‘jacketsuit’ while Micah was showing me his store and I couldn’t resist it. It inspired me to go lady gaga again, and for the last time. Not that I’m sick of the gaga fest/fever (as you can see) but I’m probably closing that chapter/book now!  muaha. XD the ‘Diva jacketsuit’ makes the whole outfit, the rest of the details just finish it in a fierce way, if possible. It’s rather simple but certainly does its purpose. I enjoyed taking a bunch of pictures but ended up (as its too late in this part of the globe) making it simple and not working them much. Could have done a lot more I know. Also, I really really love these ‘shade throne’ sunglasses as I’ve became a fan of Undo’s work. ❤ !! Hope you like it, I’m taking my gaga butt to bed now. MUAHS! ❤ Uma
