Pretty Women

Say bonjour to fuller figures and longer hemlines as the skirt and dress silhouettes of the late ’50s / early ’60s swing their way back onto the scene as a 2010 /2011 fashion trend.

When we talk about the ’60s dress or skirt in this context, we’re not talking about the later, mod ’60s movement of miniskirts and teeny shift dresses. We’re talking about early ’60s ladylike dressing that flowed on from the late 1950s.

For my shirt i was looking for something bright and fresh wich brought me to Chantkare. They have such lovely and colorfull designs this summer and i felt in love with the jacket i am wearing today wich is the Ming Vintage jacket in red. The Tassels that comes with the jacket are optional but give a very nice detail to the jacket.

The overflow of ’50s prom style dresses into ’60s day wear. Full, below-the-knee circle skirts, cinched in waists, and prim, proper styling. Something wich we will see back is the granny skirt.
Don’t panic about the name of this one; this look actually was commonly known as the granny skirt back in the ’60s haha. The key to pulling off this look today is to either make it completely effortless, or surprisingly sexy

The skirt i am wearing today is the Daisy – black system skirt from Kunglers. Did you see the black waist band, for the cute effect. So adorable dont you think.

For a sensual,early ’60s look i choose the Tiffany hair from Vanity Hair. But ofcourse you can also fit it more into 2010/2011 and then just choose hair trends like a messy topknot.

To make my style a little more 60′s and more complete i am wearing the gladys glasses in red from Artilleri. The earrings i am wearing are a part of the Curie ruby set from R.A.Crystal. The bracelets are the Pearl Rain Bracelets in Onyx color from Mandala. My nails are from CCD (Caithlin Carter) and are the girl next door long nails in red.

My shoes are the Damasamba Pumps from Baiastice. They are so well made and i really couldnt resit to buy them. Check out those textures and in combi with the straps they are so unique. The pumps come in 10 colors. 
I think they are a must have in every female inventory.

Ofcourse also today i didnt go out without a bag. The bag of today is from Miel. This glitter bag comes with and witout animations and you can change the color of the bag.

Have fun with shopping 😉

Military Fashion

During some styling this weekend i came up with this fine stylish combination of designs. I was getting told to be inspired by the rl Military Fashion and this was something i needed to dare to do and i must say i mixed and matched all the way haha.

Military fashion as a trend is nothing new. But with all that’s going on in the world the military trend couldn’t be more present-day and that’s why this look refuses to submit as it keeps evolving into new variations.

This season designers rl and on sl took their inspiration browsing through every military uniform era in the archives. From Napoleonic styled jackets with high stand collars to gold bordered hussar influenced garments to admiral coats, the military jacket is a winter fashion statement. Think metal buttons and stick to colours like navy, grey and even red. Leave khaki hues for the spring season. Add a bit of runway glamour by teaming up the jacket with jeans or jersey dresses and knee high boots.

First i started with my jacket. The jacket you are seeing is a part of the Diram Cheryl Attire. The black top under my jacket is coming from Cynthia Smit, i used the partygirl top in black/silver. To get a good trendy pants i thought that would be difficult but when you want something original why dont you go to CheerNo, they also have some female designs (and i hope they will make more of them). The pants is the CheerNo Femme Samy Pants and just look at those cool details at the sides of the pants.

Then we get to a point where we need boots hahaa and that was one of the hardest stuff because you want something trendy and dont endup with shoes you always wear so i choose the black western boots from J’s 

Something i love to use are those female gloves where you see some of your vingers and hands, i remember i saw them at xplosion and used the blacklace space gloves from them. The nails i am using are from Caithlin Carter (the diva black nails). The belt is from Mandala, and the sunglasses are from Steinwerk Designs. My earrings come from Glow Studio today and last but not least is my hair from Argrace and is named the Military Cap “Loose Chignon”.

Poses today are from Di’s Opera

Bright Orange

As ModelX has many Dutch models in their team, I thought it would be fun to cheer our Dutch Football team a bit 🙂 And ofcourse I would like to share this with every other nationality!

Yesterday I was walking around in SL to find something nice to support the Dutch football team for the FIFA World Cup. I’m not really a fan of football, but for some reason I love to watch the World and/or European Cup’s.. Maybe for the hot men we see on TV? 😉

I really couldn’t find a good skin which represents my country, so I almost gave up. But then I walked into the little shop of Nedeko Kohime of Bodyline and I was amazed what I discovered. I found a free skin in a little bird tree which stands in the shop! And guess what, exactly that kind of skin I was looking for!!! The skin comes with or without teeth showing, that’s absolutly wonderful don’t you think? I chose to combine this skin with a face tattoo of Tattoonaga, by Ziamela Loon.
The new hair of Vita’s Boudoir are absolutly outstanding. I chose to wear this hair called “Bomb”, because it suits very well with the skin and make-up. You really should check out Vita’s Boudoir for more hair, they are absolutly amazing!
The necklace I’m wearing is something that Caithlin Carter, of CCD, made for me during the MVW 2010 competiton. I wore this same jewelry set during the finals. And I still love this set a lot and brings back a lot of precious memories.

I played a bit with the Environment Editor In-World, and this is the result of the picture I took;

HUP HOLLAND HUP!!

May the best team win the World Cup 🙂

Hugs,
