Mix & Match with Mon Tissu

Mix & Match with Mon Tissu

December 14, 2010 |  by  |  anya ohmai, lookbook

Mon Tissu has probably been blogged to death by now, but that’s only because the girls deserve just that. I’ve mentioned before in my previous post that the quality of items in Mon Tissu is incredible and I felt the only way I knew how to feature them was just by doing what I knew how and that’s mixing and matching what’s from Mon Tissu with other items from the grid. The items are incredibly versatile and that makes it a joy to mix and match! So I hope you guys enjoy the looks and there’s nothing much to add about Mon Tissu cept if you haven’t been down there… seriously you need to! The details and work the girls put into each item just blows my mind.

I’m only wearing 2 different shoes in all the looks, Provence Riding Boots from Mon Tissue and an upcoming release from LeLutka called Fame Pumps. These are another incredible pair of shoes with little details that are just adorable. I kinda wished that they were color changeable so there can be more from 1 shoe, but I must say the color combinations are already pretty amazing. My favorite has to be the Misty Rose which is a nice sweet pink hue against the rich blue of the frontal area. Not exactly sure when these would be released but I’m predicting probably sometime this weekend!

Fashionably dead and Tram both also have new releases. Fashionably dead has some amazing pair of oxfords with socks out and of course an adorable jacket that I’m sporting in look number two. Tram on the other hand has some bambi print bags which comes in various sizes and she made some fur tippets as well! Some of you were wondering about a scarf I wore here, that was a Albero fair gatcha and tram recently put them back out in her store due to high demand. Cept she changed the sculpt very slightly! It’s still adorable, so do drop by and check it out~

Oh, see this blog template and flickr has a tendency of reducing sizes *shakes fist* but if you want to see the full image of the header do clickie here! more?

Ohmai’s 52 Weeks of Color : Yellow

Ohmai’s 52 Weeks of Color : Yellow

December 12, 2010 |  by  |  52 Weeks of Color Challenge, anya ohmai, lookbook

I decided to do this week’s color a lot earlier since it’s my finals week and after that I might be traveling and losing internet connections huhu… but hopefully I won’t! I’m crossing my fingers that my mother’s Facebook obsession would call for internet at the hotel *_* This week yellow reminded me a lot of the previous week’s golden rod and I might still be a tad bit into that color hence i’m doing a mixture of yellows as opposed to pure bright yellow. When I think of yellow, I somehow thought of ducks, hence why I’m featuring little duckies in the look. The ducks come from D-lab and if you haven’t visited D-lab’s new sim… you have to. D-lab is one of those creators whose imagination works so incredibly, when you’re in D-lab it’s like being transported into his insane genius mind of fun and childlike wonder. I absolutely love the peeing dog fountain (Yes!! There’s a peeing dog fountain!) and the little shops with names inspired by the different animals Dazai has made.

I’m featuring Mon Tissu‘s So Boho Blouse and Prudence Cardigan as well, I’ll be featuring more items from Elie Spot (Emma Gilmour) and Anouk Spot (Julliette Westerburg) brand new line very soon *crosses fingers for time*. I truly am amazed by collaboration between these 2 amazing artists, if you’re a nitpicker at details I’m sure you would be too. Every single piece from them have been done with such delicate skill and precise attention to detail, what looks like simple casual pieces are actually intricate handiwork done by the girls. I’m utterly amazed by how real these pieces are yet you can completely see the artistic hand drawn work that goes inside each piece. I’m excited to see what’s coming up in the future for Mon Tissu, and the owner’s original individual stores of Surf Co and Tres Blah as well. Applauds and a job well done to them. Not only that, I’m sure many of you have seen photos of Lula being shown around, the sim is done with as much attention to detail as the clothes have and kudos to Turnip Sorbet for a job well done! I love camming around and seeing the lopsided windows, the little cracks on the walls, the frosted windows… it’s amazing that place! So 2 sims to check out go goo~~ more?

Ohmai’s 52 Weeks of Color : Sepia

Ohmai’s 52 Weeks of Color : Sepia

December 10, 2010 |  by  |  52 Weeks of Color Challenge, anya ohmai, lookbook

So I made it just in the nick of time! Before the next color comes up~ It’s been a busy week really, so I’ve been having trouble feeling inspired for this weeks color. Sepia was a toughie for me, partly cause initially I thought it was going to be easy, it’ll be just brown! And then I realized I’m confused with what sepia actually is. The color put out was a more yellowish sepia which was sadly not found in my inventory at all, so I decided to go with the description on Wikipedia where it said sepia is a gray brown sorta pigment. I think the look ended up a little more brown than sepia, but it’ll have to work for now.

That jacket from Mr.Poet comes for mens, but with a little bit of modding and moving it around, it easily becomes a great leather jacket for females! The details on this jacket set is just crazy, but then again you expect nothing less from Mr.Poet! The background for both my pictures was taken by Sasy Scarborough for a new flickr group called Second Life Stock Images. If you’re looking for second life backgrounds to use on your photos or blogs, this is a great resource and I’m surprised no one has done this earlier! I love the current choices available and you can contribute background shots to the group if you wish to as well. So thank you for such an amazing resource! more?
