LL LOTD: Paris Weekend



{Reblogged} I am going to miss Polyvore so much and still miffed at the corporate company for removing it! I absolutely loved Paris and because of my love for the tv series Miraculous and working for a French hotel chain, I can’t really escape it.

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: Hot Candy


tokkeki: “saku ”
2018 is just around the corner and I did not have enough new photos from Second Life to share with you in this final week of 2017 so I’m sharing three outfits I made on Polyvore with my alternate universe again. All casual but keeping to the same theme as the previous fashion post of pink and black colour.

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.

Second Life: Adult Cutesy



I have been enjoying taking photos with windlights lately, particularly this collection of photos. Depending on my mood, it has been using my colour scheme of pink and cute aesthetic into mature photos.

This is pure Japanese/Korean idol being all cute and innocent though the clothes revealing a heaving bust and midriff inclines that the idol herself isn’t as innocent as she shows to her fanbase. Featuring the adorable hoody by Hime*Dream, pigtails by Runaway Hair and the backdrop is made by Foxcity. A lot of my bento poses and scenes are made by Satomi, she keeps unleashing her imagination onto the grid and we, the happy customers all too happily oblige in purchasing her products.

Pure mischief and naughty, I haven’t taken a picture of my avatar nude in so long (absence of the boyfriend does that to you) but the background by Paparazzi was neon pink and pretty that I had to use it for a photo despite it meaning that my avatar had no clothes on. Thankfully the ombre hair once more by Runaway covers the body mostly. The Princess sleeping mask is by .Olive. from a previous round of The Arcade.

Inspired by the song by Mya: ‘Case of the Ex’ and feeling for one of my best friends who is still seeing the moronic behaviour of an ex boyfriend, the above picture was stemmed from all those feelings. It all started from the spray bottle made by Marmalade for Limit8, she made a gacha that has various potions including Love potion and even cat nip. I decided to change it up with the blue ombre hair, it is by Truth and the corporate/detailed jacket by Pixicat is gorgeous. The golden keys are from one of Cureless+ gacha.

A fluffy outfit taken in the comfort of my cottage where many LOTD have been taken and my house has been featured in the spotlight on Flickr. Many understand why I wouldn’t leave my home and stay sitting there while I’m alt tabbed or away from keyboard. Other than my home on IMVU, the cottage is my rosy bubble.

LL LOTD: Set 8


 
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.

LL LOTD: Set 4

tokkeki:
“ しーちゃん
”
I got a new set for you all in between working the first week of my 9-5 job, so far the past two days though it has just been induction has been amazing, learning a whole higher calibre of hotel service. Though I am no longer facing the front desk, I am still with the guests over the phone in Reservations.

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.

Second Life: Pretty Pics




I have been on a roll with taking photos lately on Second Life, though I do not blog for fashion from there anymore, I shop for fun and randomly to save my money.

I have been hit by a creative spark with my photos and it seems because of it, it is reflecting in getting more likes than my usual 20. They have been varying in theme and colour, though pink of course is still present in some of them.
Some of them are focused on the seasons surrounding my avatar, some are focused on the features of my cottage or the new accessories that I have bought at the new round of events. These four pictures I am sharing are my recent shots I have uploaded, the below photo has recieved 47 favourites from the flickr followers, I haven’t recieved many likes in a while so quite happy with this achievement.

Two of them have been a pin-up theme from the recent round of Rewind which is all about the 1940s. The top photo is taken at Elysion sim on the roof of their Luxe theatre where they have burlesque shows every month. The second photo is taken in the comfort of my own pixel home, focusing on the amazing crystal rings by Yummy at this month’s round of Collabor88.

The third photo has a background made by Astralia which is featured in Rewind: 1940s this month and the lingerie is by Moon Elixir for the latest round of ROMP, an adult/kink event. The last photo is taken in a skybox on my home sim featuring the background house made by Foxcity poses for November round of Pocket gacha. The pose itself is also by Foxcity, top by Candydoll and shorts by Villena. My tentacle companion is by Katat0nik from last month’s round of Panic of the Pumpkin.

PicSpam! Spooky Month

That time of year is here! And though here in Australia we don’t celebrate it as hard as our northern hemisphere neighbours, I have plenty of friends who live in the U.S who go all out for Halloween. I got myself in the mood tonight with this aesthetic board I found on tumblr :3

雨流儀: Colourful Closet



Though her chronicles are currently quiet (on hold in writing the next arc) I had an inspired moment this past week and made completely new looks for Ame and keeping with her colour themes of pink and black. The person that I use as my face claim for Ame is Kpop idol HyunA and lately her hair has gone bright red/orange being part of the musical unit Triple H, that gives ideas for future looks for my character 😛

Featured below are the three new looks made through Polyvore;
Elegant adventure by lucilxlu featuring a high heeled footwear
Elegant Adventure: Ame is a renowned traveller, seen at the high end shopping events around the world or within the underground network causing up a stir with the other gang families. But unless she is trying to appeal to the opposite sex, she does it with style. New York city is a favourite haunt of hers and she visits the U.S frequently to catch up with friends or go to events in the Big Apple. The tea with mini ice-cream cookies was a favourite addition to this LOTD but the bracelet itself is well over 1k is gorgeous.

Worldly by lucilxlu featuring whimsical home decor
Worldly: Again going back to the theme of being a traveller but floating between Milan and Tokyo in the recent arcs to come (you will find out why when I get to posting her chronicles again) this LOTD is cute with the undertones of being a Yakuza through representation of her weaponry. Carrying her trademark katana as well as throwing knives, she always is careful when going from Yakzua territory into Italian mafia land. The choker and pumps are both by Betsey Johnson continuing with her eccentric style but the most expensive item here are in fact the leather bracelets by Givenchy.

Feminine touch by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
Feminine Touch: Staying in her home city and still look fabulous is what Ame does best, though she hardly flaunts her expensive attire unless attenting a function, the Yakuza still loves to be bold in her choice of clothing. The boots are one of my favourite adds to this LOTD but the Moschino bag as well with sticking to her colour scheme of pink and black. Normally in Tokyo, Ame would go outlandish and stick out even in the Harajuku crowds but when she gets older she slightly tones it down. But only just.

IMVU: Days of Glory




The past week or two I have made a resurgence in the virtual world known as IMVU, it was the place where I spent most of my young adulthood post high school. It was where I met my best friend in the U.S, Katie as well as and a handful of great girl friends. It is also where I roleplayed with multiple characters, had relationships, made enemies but overall had fun.

Majority of my friendship group have all moved on into reality and only a small collection of us are left and log on at random times, I been having a decor mood lately and IMVU has no prim limits when it comes to decorating your individual rooms and though you have to “dot hop” to get around the rooms and they aren’t all connected, it’s still fun to work with.

Realising that the manor I had put on public back in 2014 was too dark for my tastes and my style was much more light hearted and very pink nowadays, I changed this NYC apartment that originally belonged to my artistic roleplay character Elizabeth James of East Highland High to make it my own.

A place to hang out with the girls whenever we all sync up and are logged on all at once and can play tunes, dance and have fun. So far this week it’s been myself, Katie, Elie and Mez with random appearances from my boyfriend Aum showing up as well. They all love the very detailed room but I will say this right now, some bits were a pain to work on.


My bedroom upstairs on the second floor, this room wasn’t so hard to decorate, a lot of the frames and wall art could go on each wall where I wanted them to, if they weren’t angled right they could just be turned to face the right way. My room in reality has a lot of stuff in it, it is what I call organised chaos and though I certainly do not have the paddle rack or St Andrew’s Cross I definitely got the plushies, cute lights and books/paper everywhere.

It is my favourite room to be in when logged on IMVU, but my second place where I usually go AFK is at the below picture.

One level down below the big tv and gaming station (plus three big bears) is this small corner with the cat rug 😛 I realised I did not have enough room in the bedroom upstairs to set up a blogging desk like I have in my cottage on Second Life so made something much smaller and more cosy on ground floor. Got a virtual Skitty, laptop, Godiva milkshake and M&M’s to call this cosy corner my little space when I am AFK and out in reality.

The theme of pink, black and white is a re-occuring trend though bright colours stand out more in this New York city apartment, but one of my favourite pieces that I loved adding is the fashion and beauty aspect.

The giant closet with make-up box and a Minectaft library cube for kicks as well as shelves full of shoes, bags and let’s not forget those thigh-high leather boots, that was my inner Ame Hayato coming out when I added those in. Adding in a vanity table full of make up that is at the top of the stairs plus a shelf for snapback caps and more make-up/nail polish stashed on top of the drawers.

The added Japanese fashion and anime magazines were a bonus, three mannequins and of course all the soft toys a girl could dream of! This is my comfort zone when logging on but also a place of entertainment and socialising with friends.
