Blue Laces

Blue Laces

Hi hi~ So today I come to you bearing quite sad news… Unfortunately news is that Noju will be closing its doors at the end of this month. It’s still unclear if they will be back in the future or rebranding but it’s really sad to see amazing creators leave… This blog post is to dedicate all my best wishes to Noju‘s creator and hope that no matter where she goes, only creativity and happiness follows along! I recently blogged Noju’s Spring Lace dress but they have generously put out a blue version as a thank you gift for all their customers and supporters along their journey in SL. Along with this comes also a gift pose — so do drop by and grab those and along the way, take a look at their amazing stuff and buy some before the store closes! Noju has tons of feminine offerings and is a SL girly girl dream to be in that store. Not only that, Noju also sells some adorable accessories and hair! Yes! Their newer hair styles are just lovely too~

I decided to make 2 looks featuring this gift item and hopefully entice you guys to the quality of work Noju offers. This look is also in LeBonBon where my friends and I have taken the same piece and each of us took our own spin to make different looks from the item. Hope you guys go over to LeBonBon and enjoy the looks there as well! more?

I was initially planning to do a few looks revolving around just 1 dress — but for some reason SL just never lets me log in world and every time I do, I get crashed out in less than mere minutes. I must have done something horribly wrong *sobsfest* Still wanted to share this piece before it goes off the shelves~

Chocolate Atelier released some lovely flower dresses in 5 different colors, but the pink one is 50% off from May 13th – May 18th; so take this opportunity to jump on over and get it! I wanted to show it off better but alas technology hates me. So see more images of the dress here. more?

…color is black and white put together…

There’s been tons of skin releases these past few days that have us all at the edge of our seats. Minnu Palen from LeLutka recently released LOLA which definitely got a lot of us talking and scrambling to the sim. A big huge thanks to Minnu for creating this and for packing them so well too! I was expecting the usual box or shopping bag packaging only to get a makeup palette which is just the most adorable thing for skins~ Fun stuff!

I’ve been lucky enough to really been able to wear all of Minnu’s recent skins pretty decently on my shape. However, Lola might be my new favorite! It’s a little rounder than usual and less harsh model-like, more casual and shape fitting — at least in my opinion. LeLutka skins have always brought out a more fashion-y side in me so I decided to do 2 looks in Black and White in a more fashion-y way ^^ Hope you like! <3 more?

…I could have missed the pain but I’d have to miss the dance…

I was going through my objects folder where occasionally you find unopened boxes of goodies and this was one of those times. I opened a box Como sent to me a while back and boy was I glad I did! This gorgeous flower top comes from Yozoh* and it was initially a dress but I shortened it and tinted it a little to give it a worn, gypsy like feel~ I played with that idea when coming up with this look and had tons of fun with it!

…when in doubt wear red…

Gosh! Blogging withdrawals kicking in bad~
I should really wait a little while before posting this but I was really happy with the look and can’t help myself. Pardon the spammage! It’s been quite some time since I really felt the blogging bug hit me this hard ^^

Once in a while I like to surf through lookbook.nu to see some RL fashion taking place. There’s a particular girl named Tahti Syrjala whom I really love! I like a good dose of redheads and her styling is always impeccable. This look that I did kinda reminded me of her somewhat — the sleek black cuts and the vivid red hair was probably what resembled Tahti. Hope you guys like it! more?
