It is so hot this weekend! I am tempted to turn on the air-conditioner for the sake of being cool but I also know that will be a waste of time considering I might go out after releasing this collection of outfits. The below LOTD are a mixture of black and white with pink and either work, casual or sport.
Posting three as per the norm when it comes to sharing my outfits from Polyvore;
The Chanel Boots: Using a direct quote from the film The Devil wears Prada because my alternate universe self is inspired by this fashion movie as well as Confessions of a Shopaholic. The boots are by Chanel, not the same ones that Anne Hathaway wore as Andy Sacks but similar thighs highs to say the least. The top is by Dolce & Gabanna and the shorts are Abercrombie and Fitch. The pink cardigan is not designer but it is cashmere, a layer over the flimsy blouse. This is an outfit that sums up the perks of being an editor-in-chief’s assistant, shopping around the world in couture! My favourite piece is Betsey Johnson rose bag.
Fight like a Girl: When I was 21, I took roughly two years of Jeet Kune Do class, it is the martial arts that Bruce Lee began, it is a mixture of other deadly arts but with his own twist on it. Now my alternate self would definitely take a combination of dance and martial arts to stay active (and to fit in those gorgeous clothes). The above outfit is one of her training LOTD, none of it is designer though the sneakers are Nike and the bag is Victoria Secret. Everything is minimal and she only wears the pendant that holds the intial of her celebrity boyfriend, subtlety at its best. My favourite accessory is the star pin in the braid, its pink and cutesy.
Laduree: There IS a Laduree store that sells macarons and stationary outside the Palace of Versailles, I even got myself a keychain and notebooks after ogling at how pretty the store itself was. My alternate self would have Laduree make-up because she would be able to afford it and going to Versailles would be a favourite tourist habit of hers in between working and shopping. The top is by Honey couture, skirt by Ronald Van Der Kemp and the shoes are inspired by Cinderella’s glass slippers made by Dolce & Gabanna. My favourite accessory would be the lipgloss and the random pink tea cup, because high tea is elegant and posh.
I have been on a creative run since my three days off and it has been focused on this single fantasy story that I have previously mentioned in other diary entries. I even have written notes for book 2 plus a chapter which will be continued after I have completed the first one. I am thankful that my imagination has not left me and that I am still able to create scenarios and ideas in my head.
I have also completed my map and my current novel is up to 78 pages, not bad considering I haven’t done any kind of para roleplay in either IMVU or Second Life for the past three-four years. I only hope that this imagination of mine continues to flourish so that I can finish a story for once. It is a bad habit of mine because I haven’t completed an actual story ever!
Before Ame went to Miami for a family mission and finding love along the way, before she retrieved the golden lion ring from the Triads, the youngest daughter of Masaru Hayato was studying in London at 21 years old shortly after her first marriage ended when she completed senior high school in the United States.
The particular sets I have published today are when she goes to Paris;
Bonjour Paris: After infiltrating the London underground and becoming friends with Bennett of the Joyce family syndicate while studying at the University of foreign affairs. Ame spends the weekend away in Paris after hearing about high end fashion in the City of Lights. While in Paris, Ame is very designer, wearing Moschino, Jimmy choo and a Saint Laurent, she even brings one of her own home brands Koko and Yosuke from Japan in the form of her faux fur shawl. Ame has also bought a Godiva shake while enjoying her shopping.
Lourve Visit: Ame recieves word from Bennett back in London that a thief has snuck into the famous Lourve in hopes to steal one of their precious artworks, wanting to see the tourist attraction herself as well as gain a strong reputation while visiting Paris, Ame pursues the amateur thief into the Lourve. Not making herself too obvious to the security, Ame just sticks to her throwing knives that are gartered and kept hidden under her pink checkered skirt. Her statement piece in this LOTD are her Dolce and Gabanna gold shoes.
Sweet Travels: After stopping the Lourve thief, Ame returns to London with her earnings plus her spending on clothing and sweets. She is a massive sweet tooth and loves the macarons from the bakeries in Paris. She doesn’t just have one particular suitcase, she has various others including this pink hard cover. Of course during her travels around the world, she carries a small selection of weaponry including her katana and shuriken.
Ame doesn’t exactly hide herself from enemies and she is found by her chasing American spy
Scanning through the files on his laptop inside his Washington DC apartment, C.I.A agent Julian Huntington III typed all the information he could find that was available of Ame Hayato. Ever since her fight with the Russian mafia Oleysa Zima, she had been off the grid and despite all his connections across the globe Julian could not find her. He had returned home to the capital frustrated and determined to start a fresh slate and stayed locked up inside his apartment, completely focused on finding the elusive, youngest Hayato.
An email notification soon appeared in the corner of his screen, it had been sent from his head office the subject read ‘We found her’ and it was all Julian needed. He quickly opened the email and saw a link of a Prague newspaper simply attached. Clicking it open, the headline was in Czech but the picture on the front said it all. It was Ame Hayato half dressed, mid laughter and clutching onto an equally half dressed man with flaming red hair. They were pictured inside the dressing room of one of the luxurious designer boutiques in the city of Prague.
Julian frowned as he eyed the tall red hair man, he knew that face from somewhere but he could not remember who he was. Switching tabs momentarily on his laptop, the agent brought up the C.I.A’s most wanted list. Quickly browsing the list, Julian paused catching sight of the fiery hair and clicked open the profile. The lover of the youngest Hayato was none other than Aleksander Volkov, a member of Russia’s biggest weapon dealing family and someone that the secret agents kept watch on. It seemed that the dealer and the Yakuza were aligned. It also meant for Julian, his search was over.
Grabbing his phone off the desk, Julian stood up and punched in a number “Boss I found Ame Hayato…yeah I need a ticket to Prague”.
