雨流儀: The Traveller



{Reblogged} Everyone who has read Ame’s chronicles know how much she travels the world whether for work or pleasure and she does it with style, usually in her trademark colours of black and pink.

Below are the three selected outfits for this week;
Toronto sights by lucilxlu featuring pink leather sandals
Toronto Sights: My latest LOTD that I made on Polyvore literally yesterday and it started from the fluffy Gucci bolero (Ame does have expensive taste as we all know) and the need to use the picture of “I just really like thigh highs”. When Ame goes on her travels she goes to all the typical places that are either full of gangs or high end fashion, Toronto in Canada is an amazing place and would be a place where she would not make a statement unless it is through this outfit.

San Francisco by lucilxlu featuring chinese chopsticks
San Francisco: Last time I did an outfit for Ame that featured this city was during her ‘Chinatown’ lunch break, this is no different with food being added as fill in but also her favourite snack of miso soup and dumplings. This LOTD I was going for chic yet also making a statement at who she was, it is also very expensive with the Judith Leiber couture purse that is $7,935… My favourite piece of this outfit is definitely the crochet skirt by Chicwish and though I haven’t placed it in any arc yet, it might be in the future.

Dragon rider by lucilxlu featuring cat-eye glasses
Dragon Rider: I am addicted to the Dragon: Races to the edge show that is on Netflix (I’m already on Season 3) and I adore Toothless, so this outfit is not part of Ame’s chronicles but a fantasy side if she was a modern dragon rider. Keeping to her trademark of pink and black and the setting is in the Peaks district of England. My favourite accessory are the badges on the Ralph Lauren skirt and the Betsey Johnson necklace.

LL LOTD: Day Chic


 
{Reblogged} Casual outfits can be done right and still made to be fashion statements even if the designers are not present in each individual LOTD. These outfits are featured in my alternate self’s home town of Los Angeles. They all going with the colour of pink as per the norm and giving off a sense of originality in who she is.

Sharing three as always, I take it back some of these outfits have designer;

Disney Girl: The top is Miu Miu, the denim skirt is Dolce & Gabanna and the sneakers are Vans, so even a fun day trip to Disneyland could result in wearing high end brands. I will say the excuse for my alternate self is because she works for a fashion magazine so she will gets the extra couture even in every day outfits. I been to Disneyland on my own and if I had the accessories in the above LOTD, I too would go all out. Minnie Mouse’s headband ears, Ursula’s shell choker and the clutch bag of Beauty and the Beast made by Judith Leiber is a favourite accessory along with the clock stud earrings from Alice in Wonderland.


Dance Classes: Unlike the real me, the mirror version of myself stays fit and stays motivated in order to fit in the cute clothes that are part of her large wardrobe. She does a combination of martial arts class and mix dance. The dance class varies between modern, ballet and aerial yoga. The above LOTD does not have any designer except the accessories are all Victoria Secret, but it the clothes are loose and free to move around in. She packs two pairs of different shoes because the classes are spontaneous and she is prepared/organised for anything.


Casual Yet Cute: I have to be Los Angeles twice now during my real travels and though the traffic is pure chaos and some areas can be very rundown, that is what it means to be in a bustling city in any western country. The dress is Valentino, the denim jacket is Maurice’s, the strapless bra is La Perla, the black stilettos are Giuseppe Zanotti and the adorable perfume bag is my favourite designer Betsey Johnson. This is a fun LOTD and though casual it is chic and very feminine. Something I could wear too in the bustling city streets of shopping or sight seeing. The ginger kitten is if my alternate self had a pet living with her in her apartment. A small companion.

雨流儀: Yakuza fashionista



{Reblogged} Summer makes me think of warmer climate, bright colours and not much layers of clothes to be worn. It has also randomly inspired me to make a trio of new outfits. Still going with her signature colours of pink and black and keeping to her face claim that is HyunA, I hope you like the LOTD.

Made over the course of this week, these are the three styles I have created;
Tres Chic by lucilxlu featuring a chain necklace
Tres Chic: Morning coffee run for herself before she starts her day in any of the fashion capitals of the world, originally I was going to have a black skirt to go with the feminine pink blouse but after seeing these fringed shorts from Farfetch, I decided that they were definitely more Ame’s style especially when paired with the Barbie heels by Charlotte Olympia. I have a couple of favourite items in this LOTD, the unicorn bag from Angelic Pretty, I have always wanted to have an accessory from this Japanese lolita store but its has always been too expensive to buy online, the perfume inspired by Beauty and the Beast is another addition I fave and the unicorn make-up brushes.

Hot Summer by lucilxlu featuring wall art
Hot Summer: Her make-up palette here is all rainbow! I can definitely see Ame attending a pride week parade whether it is back home in Shibuya during Rainbow week or going overseas to the foreign countries and watching them in either LA or Rome. Also with the rise of temperatures as the northern hemisphere heads towards the middle of its Summer, Ame be keeping cool in this crochet halter top. The denim skirt with pearl accessories was a favourite addition of mine to add in as well as the sushi plushies in the bottom right corner.

All rose by lucilxlu featuring a paco rabanne perfume
All Rose: Out of the 3 new outfits I made for Ame, this was the first one I created and it started from finding the pink cupcake top on another style on Polyvore. Going with a very elegant and feminine look, the telephone bag by Betsey Johnson and illustration of the wine bottles gives a very Parisian feel to this LOTD. The make-up collection she wears are all by Chanel, normally I do not go with this designer but the make-up was too cute and went well in this style. My favourite adds are the King and queen bracelet by Alexander McQueen, the silver dragon claws because a Yakuza’s daughter still needs ‘weaponry’ and the heels by Betsey Johnson of course.

LL LOTD: Pastels Please



{Reblogged} The below outfits have a theme of pastel pink because I wouldn’t just stick to hot or candy pinks in my colour wheel. It also features my favourite cities such as Tokyo, Paris and Los Angeles.

I have three to share with you all and they were made in January-February;

Couture: I always wanted to look like one of those French girls with their berets and designer coats during winter but gave the above look my own twist. Mixing couture with Lolita, the coat is the most expensive item made by Liska, but so is the necklace by Versace. The shoes and purse are probably my favourite accessories combining my love for sweets into a unique design. Also though I have been to Paris once before, I would love to see the Peninsula hotel, it reminds me of the hotel in the series Miraculous.


Dirty 30: I turned the big 3-0 on the 10th February this year so with my alternate self, I would see it as a big bash with more than one hundred people attending- perks of working in a fashion magazine and having a celebrity boyfriend. The dress is by Renato Balestra and pumps are of course Christian Louboutin. It would be a huge marquee during the evening in Tokyo, my home town. The accessories however are Betsey Johnson, the whole event is fun and something Pinkie Pie would deem worthy.


City Summers: My alternate self lives in Los Angeles because that is where her work is based at, she has her own apartment all very chic and cute and the above LOTD is a casual outfit. The only designer item is the bag by Gucci and I love the badges on the pale pink bolero. The 3 digital hearts known by gamers as how many lives you got left and the Stormtrooper badge of course a nod to me being a Star Wars fangirl. The make-up however are all designer brand either Lancome or Dior.

雨流儀: Wild at Heart



{Reblogged} Ame has no limitations in her young life, since she graduated from college and took part in her family’s ‘business’ she hasn’t stopped unless of course its a cause of the heart. Whether she is shopping in the fashion capitals of the world, having an elegant high tea in London or going clubbing in Las Vegas or Prague, she does it with style.

I have been on a roll when it comes to new LOTD from Polyvore, here are three;
Diva by lucilxlu featuring target wall art
Diva: Europe is the centre of Ame’s shopping if not across the Atlantic and in New York City. She frequents to Europe because of a certain gentleman in Milan but often spends her weekends away in Paris. In the French capital, Ame dresses up to the nines and often in designer’s latest creations. She either shops or attends the runway shows with the rest of the elite but also deals with her family’s connections and business in the Parisian underground. The above outfit is day time style that can also revert to evening by a simple change of accessories, her usual routine is grabbing a Godiva shake along the way. My favourite pieces is both the YSL scale skirt and gold plated harness by Giuseppe Zanotti.

Sweet by lucilxlu featuring a swarovski crystal necklace
Sweet: For high teas or elegant affairs in the public, Ame lessens her bold statements of colour and goes with pastel shades especially if in the presence of other important females. She still makes herself known with her accessories and the fact in this particular LOTD the top is sheer, her skirt is Gucci and heels are Sophia Webster. My favourite additions was the Beauty and the Beast palette and Polly Pocket that acts more as a random accessory than anything useful. The necklace is also by Swarovski with crystal and faux pearls, Ame has also kept her katana hidden underneath her skirt especially if the events she attends have other gang members.

Party princess by lucilxlu featuring a party outfit
Party Princess: Whether it’s at the Lux in Las Vegas or the Deathclub in Prague, Ame has been a party animal since she was a teenager. This LOTD is just one of her many party outfits and when she goes clubbing, she goes all out no matter what the occasion is. I cropped off the Moschino top to bear her midriff and the leather shorts by Balmain are accessorised with Forever 21’s pink fishnet stockings and again another product by Giuseppe Zanotti, the spiked heels. The pink bag is by Salvataore Ferragamo and the gold belt is made by Chanel, she keeps two shuriken in her pocket just in case the bouncers call her up on her gun. My favourite pieces though are both the mermaid face gems and crystal and velvet choker also by Giuseppe.

LL LOTD: Pink and Denim



{Reblogged} I have been browsing Fashmates and Urstyle to see if I can pick up creating my fictional outfits but though they both have great promise, it seems to be lacking on the fantasy and unique style that I have come to enjoy as my own looks. Hoping in time that they will show more in my favour.

This collection of three new outfits have two based in Japan, because I would travel there a lot and the other one is a private outing away from the crowds- a green retreat.
Getaway by lucilxlu featuring kate spade handbags
Getaway: There is no actual location for this place, it is several but I was inspired by the Spring time in the northern hemisphere and a forest that isn’t too hot or too cold, just right for a small, intimate picnic for alternate self and her celebrity boyfriend. Somewhere away from the crowds where it can be just them in nature. The ankle frilly socks and candy pink cardigan are my favourite additions to this LOTD, it is very feminine and whimsical. Also the small jelly is a return to my childhood, I loved eating them.

Trip to Japan by lucilxlu featuring a pink outfit
Trip to Japan: The Land of the Rising sun is still no.1 in my travel bucket list in reality, so it makes perfect sense that my alternate self would be going to this country more than once. I think my favourite piece from this look is the heavily detailed denim jacket, I mean c’mon just look at it! All those pins and chains, it looks punk rock but it’s not. It is elegant enough to pull off on top of a cute pink skirt and Louboutin spiked heels.

Tokyo Disneyland during Halloween by lucilxlu featuring cherry blossom home decor
Tokyo Disneyland: The happiest place on Earth, of course I’m going to visit its Japanese counterpart many times if I could in reality and plenty in my alternate universe where money and time is no issue. The short sleeves and skirt though may be the wrong attire for Halloween in Japan because they are already heading into their colder months (whoops). The novelty aspect that I was going for in this LOTD was a lot of fun especially with the food theme jewellery- sushi earrings and gummi bears bracelet.

LL LOTD: Style in the Office



{Reblogged} Corporate outfits can be fun depending on your job and how flexible your boss is, for my alternate reality self she works in a high end fashion magazine so she can express herself as an individual while still wearing the designer brands that her magazine promotes.

She tends to wear pink and black a lot more than any other colour being her trademark. As always, sharing three for you this week.

Editor-in-chief’s Assistant: Inspired by the aesthetic and feel of Runway in the movie Devil wears Prada, I was going for something similar with the office and the outfit as well. Top is by Jackie, skirt by Alexander Wang, earrings are Karl Lagerfeld, make up Bobbi Brown and belt is inspired by Christian Dior. My favourite piece in this LOTD are the badges- the ice cream, the Lucky cat and the mermaid shells since I love novelty personally.


Lunch Break: Mixing professional with unique trend and keeping to my own style, this LOTD is another office outfit while going on lunch break. The imaginary magazine is located in Los Angeles and I could see myself venturing into Little Tokyo during my lunch hour then picking up a glazed cruller on the way back to the office. Top is by Rosie Assoulin, skirt by DSquared2 and shoes are Valentino. My favourite accessory featured is definitely the pink keyboard bag by Joao Sabino, it is very unique.


Back to work: After the holidays and travelling around the fashion capitals, returning to the usual grind in Los Angeles while publishing the memories of the fashion weeks either in New York City or Paris. This is a very feminine LOTD going with her mood of being in a content relationship where is it no longer hiding from the public. Ruffled pink top is by Zerdocean, skirt by Chic Wish, shoes are Kurt Geiger, belt is Saint Laurent and earrings are Dolce & Gabanna.

LL LOTD: Paris Weekend



{Reblogged} I absolutely loved Paris while I was there last year and because of my love for the tv series Miraculous and working for a French hotel chain, I can’t really escape it. I am still trying to find a Polyvore replacement to create new tiles but so far it’s a bit bleak.

Featuring three outfits below for visiting Paris. I had lots of fun creating these;
Parisian kitty by lucilxlu featuring fake flowers
Parisian Kitty: Time for work for the fashion magazine and it means going to many capital cities to do interviews, find clothing of inspiration, take photos or even stand-in for the editor-in-chief. I absolutely love this outfit! The skirt is by Dolce & Gabanna, those hot boots are by Alexander McQueen and ice-cream wristlet is by Betsey Johnson (of course). It is blending something professional with the pink blazer and making it into something I would call my own. The scarf is directly from Sanrio online store and hair would be pulled into a neat bun, like I said it was fun to create.

Night out by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
Night out: The celebrity boyfriend and I would go out with friends, whether his fellow stars or my own group and it wouldn’t be all just for work. This outfit is inspired by an all out, star-studded event and taken on Bastille Day. A known holiday to the French and something they celebrate as much as New Years eve. The outfit itself is not really a designer brand, more something I created together to have its own look of individuality. The harness mixed with the pink bustier by H&M and a ruffled, voluminous black skirt with pink lace underneath. The heels however are Christian Louboutin and purse by Yves Saint Laurent.

Feeling French by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
Feeling French: I actually have pants in this outfit! I know normally my previous outfits have been dresses or skirts but these pink jeans by Hobbs were too cute, I had to style a look around them. It’s something worn in Autumn or beginning of winter, the top is a pullover by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini and made out of soft wool. The black embellished heels are by Dolce & Gabanna again and the necklace and bracelet are by Betsey Johnson. Are you all noticing a trend here on who I would pick in my alternate universe closet, if I had the money I would definitely spend it on these designers.

LL LOTD: Eclectic



{Reblogging again} I really miss making outfits and I can’t seem to find a website that replaces Polyvore. The below LOTDs 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 the disabled Polyvore;
The Chanel boots by lucilxlu featuring nyc home decor
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 by lucilxlu featuring prAna
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 by lucilxlu featuring PiP Studio
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.
