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: Black and White


 
{Reblogged} Each set is in a different country but the theme is still very much casual chic. Made over time, presenting my monotone LOTD with a pinch of pink as usual.

Featuring three tiles made over time, I should try and get back into it on a regular basis;
Amore by lucilxlu featuring wood home decor
Amore: French theme once more and set in Paris for a romantic getaway with the boyfriend. This would be classified as a day time outfit because it is comfortable and casual.  It is still feminine and chic. When I was there last year, I absolutely loved the store Laduree that produces make-up, macarons and accessories. She also has make-up from YSL added in. the hot pink boots were a favourite add to the outfit. Though I do love the Gucci heart bag too.

Tourist on wheels by lucilxlu featuring Forever 21
Tourist on Wheels: I have a love for Korean pop music since I was in high school and I realised I did not express the fangirl within me in my alternate universe fashion. This is one outfit that is showing it, the top was discovered randomly on Polyvore by another Kpop fan and I had to use it for this day outfit around Rome. Location: Italy once again. This outfit is full of designer brands, the shorts are Gucci, the necklace is Chanel, the make up is Mecca or Louboutin. I love the rollerblades.

Nippon travel by lucilxlu featuring a flower perfume
Nippon Travel: My second latest outfit that I made this month. Back home in Japan and wearing the comfortable combat boots yet again. It is a contrast yet it is not to the skirt and bralet by Top shop. The book bag is by Dolce and Gabanna and expresses my love to read. The Sailor Moon socks and nail art reflect my fangirl heart for that manga/anime but I absolutely love the Anna Sui and Laduree make up brands. They are unique and cute and I only have one perfume bottle of Anna Sui in reality.

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: Frock Up



I haven’t done one of these in a while and though I haven’t made any new looks of the day since Polyvore has been shut down (RIP) I realised that I still have a couple more outfits that I have yet to publish. So sharing three random ones, they don’t have the same colour or same theme but still look good.

One is for a costume party, one is for an event in Paris and the other is casually strolling the streets as a tourist;
Literature party by lucilxlu featuring a black cutlery
Literature Party: I’m an avid reader, I love Alice in Wonderland and love admiring cosplays or wishing to attend costume parties. My alternate self would be no different and I would see this is as a LOTD for a literature party held in the halls of Versailles. This time, it wouldn’t be so much about designer in the costume though the lace and leather boots are by Fausto Puglisi and the lipstick is Yves Saint Laurent.

Pink Princess by lucilxlu featuring a pink top
Pink Princess: Strolling around Paris while looking cute and unique would be a favourite past time outside work hours and social events. Though I’m not sure if the pink Christian Louboutin heels would work so well over the course of the day. This look is something Spring and very girly, I would definitely wear this especially with Betsey Johnson’s Brain freeze wristlet, I have used this bag in a couple of other outfits and I wish I could have it in my own reality too.

Fatale by lucilxlu featuring window coverings
Fatale: While still in Paris, might as well go out on the town and experience the night life of the City of Lights. The leather top is by Cushnie Et Ochs, a designer worn by people such as Michelle Obama and Black Lively. Jeans are by Rag & Bone and the pumps called Mal E Bow are by an eccentric, boutique store called Irregular choice. I wanted something that was inspired by Catwoman and Selina Kyle’s look, very femme fatale but also chic to be worn at night.

LL LOTD: Hot Candy


tokkeki: “saku ”
Re-blogging three outfits from my alternate universe, all casual but keeping to the same theme as the previous fashion post of pink and black colour. It can be done whether flying on a long flight to a favourite destination, walking the streets of London or relaxing at home after a long day at work.

They all bring a personal touch for me as each has something featured in reality;
Seasoned traveller by lucilxlu featuring personalized coffee travel mugs
Seasoned Traveller: I love going to the airport whether it is personally going on a holiday with my parents or picking up family who have landed from overseas, there is always an exciting energy in any airport that I go to. My alternate self would be travelling a lot because of the industry that she works in. The only thing that is designer in this outfit is the heels belonging to Christian Louboutin. I also have travelled Emirates business class and it is divine!

Brit chic by lucilxlu featuring a bow blouse
Brit Chic: After being in London for 12 days this past September, I enjoyed it thoroughly and I would return there again and again if I had the money and time. My alternate universe self would have no problem flying there especially since her own celebrity boyfriend is British too. The whole outfit is feminine and cute with designer items such as the Valentino pink sandals, Burberry perfume and Gucci statement necklace. An ice-cream with two churros is a favourite snack to eat while walking around.

Bludger by lucilxlu featuring a white mug
Bludger: This LOTD is chilled out and in the comfort of my alternate self’s home in Los Angeles when she is not travelling or working. I own a pair of the unicorn slippers that are featured in this set and could see myself drinking miso soup in an oversized jumper and short shorts while brainstorming ideas for my next fantasy novel. There is nothing couture in this outfit but the make-up featured are made by Anna Sui.

雨流儀: Staying cute



{Reblogged} Returning to pink and black outfits and none of these are part of Ame’s story arcs featured in her chronicles. The three outfits were inspired by places I have seen and wish to go there myself or wanting to have certain actors and actresses to be part of my chronicles dream cast.

Below are the three selected outfits for this week;
Valentines Day by lucilxlu featuring high heel sandals
Valentines Day: Made on the 14th February, I was in a mush mood and was also in the middle of writing up the future stories for the Osvaldo Arc, this particular V-day is when Ame is back with her Italian mafia Jacen and they have gone to Paris for a weekend away. The above LOTD isn’t so much a dinner date but it could be during the day when Ame is out shopping at her favourite designer stores. She is subtlely armed in this look wearing her usual garter knives. My favourite accessory is the Gucci embroidered clutch.

Senpai by lucilxlu featuring a wine flask
Senpai in NYC: Ame stayed in New York city when she was hiding from the Russian Mafia Oleysa Zima, but has returned to the Big Apple on multiple occasions, she even has a permanent apartment in Park avenue. One of her connections through the London syndicate is a professor at New York university and rumour is that she is a crazy scientist. If in New York City, Ame will visit the professor to catch up as well as get any details on her latest creations. This LOTD is fun, feminine and eccentric, my favourite pieces is the egg purse and egg hair pins.

Streets by lucilxlu featuring set of makeup brushes
Rose Streets: I have shared so many outfits of Ame back home in the streets of Tokyo that I am certain everyone who follows her stories and fashion know what her looks are. Much more casual in the presence of friendships though still designer like her older sister Meiakane. Ame while in her home country always goes all out when it comes to her attire, she blends in with the Shinjuku and Harajuku crowds especially at night when the shops are open until late. My favourite accessories on this LOTD is the Kate Spade ‘Hello Tokyo’ cat bag and the badges/pins on her skirt.

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.

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.
