This One's For Beanie!

Beanie Canning, the tireless blogger of Beanie Loves Japan, has steered me to more great freebies, unusual and fun sims and new designers than I can count. So, when she asked her fellow bloggers to do a post about this wonderful Japanese store she found, I had to agree. Of course, Oiran, the store is a great find, full of kimonos and yukatas from 100L and up – with lovely textures, tremendous detail and great beauty. I purchased two that I will show you after the cut. Continue reading

Persona's Bonny Bonnie Blouse & a word about flesh melt

Bonnie Blue

Posted by Cajsa Lilliehook

Polka dots are such fresh and lively prints. Just putting on one polka dot item will wake you up almost as much as a cappuccino, but imagine the effect of layering polka dots on polka dots with your accessories. In this outfit, I even feel ready to tackle my laundry.

Okay, I love this blouse. It’s light and airy like Spring and it makes me feel happy to wear it. And…it’s so versatile i hardly spent much time at all thinking about what to wear with it, some blue pants from eLDee and blue shoes from paper couture and I was set to go. Except….gotta wear my Nanogunk socks.

Now, if you have not run to Nanogunk and spent the princely sum of 10L for the their socks and gloves, what are you waiting for? Everyone needs a pair – men and women. You know how when you wear bell sleeves or bell pants, your flesh expands to the width of the sleeve or pant leg and you get this ugly fleshy bottom? Not if you put these socks or gloves on, they leave your hands and legs uncovered but cover that flesh melt with a nice shadowy black so your legs and arms look the way they should. Best 10L I ever spent.

Tres Jolie's ChouChou

Tres Jolie's Chouchou

Posted by Cajsa Lilliehook

A great friend celebrated his Rez Day last night and even though i knew I wanted to wear Tres Jolie’s ChouChou, this lovely dress made from a wonderful rich and detailed Japanese brocade, I just thought it was too dressy and formal for the event which promised to include mud wrestling. What to do?

Accesorize!! By switching to more casual shoes, losing the Dalia necklace that generously comes with the dress and choosing more casual hair and jewelery, it became casual enough for the party – though I promise you, I did not mud wrestle in this dress. Imagine the dry cleaning!!
