Yesterday my day of inspiration started because of Beanie Canning from, yes again one of the members of Fashion Finds, seriously if you haven't stopped by yet you should.
I was checking out the lead Beanie had given us all, on the latest releases in 3 Japanese hair stores , woot.
Off I ran and grabbed 2 styles from two of the three stores, and one demo I still am holding on to.
Once I was all styled up I knew exactly who's yummies I wanted to share, and that is Myllie Writers latest from Persona.
The first combination is the Mini Skirt called Mollie and the Mollie Lace top and tank. The tank also comes separately and is a sexy combo, but with stylish charm.
The leggings that come as part of the skirt set can of course be worn without the socks, so you have pantyhose in an opaque look, which will be fab in boot season , or the leggings, I opted for both looks.
The hair I am wearing in this and the next two pics is the =TEKUTEKU= coco from of course Teku Teku , there is an abundance of fabulous styles there, even an adventurous dreads style. As well as walls and walls of hand painted hair textures for sale.
Later that night I went to Garfield and ran into Yabusaka Loon and Anju and so many other wonderful people including Sai Pennel and Lucas too. After buying some shoes (will be shown later Im sure ) I went to Yabusaka's store and got this heavenly Choker , not only did I not need to edit it other than moving it forwards a smidge, but it has 7 different coloured stones on click, absolutely perfect and so girly girl that with the lace of the wonderful Mollie top it was perfection.
The Hair Rose in Grey and Purple from Essentia was a perfect match, and I realised yesterday that not only have you not really seen the Hair Roses up close and personal, but that you don't really get to see a lot of the additional pieces I wear -if any - when I do, so Im trying to see if this way works better. The skin is the PXL Linda skin Gold_SmokeEyes_BlackEB that I showed yesterday with Efe, thats just adorable.
The NEW incredible Peep toe heels from AC Creations are something I have been waiting for, I suggested Aphrodite to a pair of peep toe ages ago , and when she got the time after her big move of the main store -which is always a stack of work - she created these beauties, they are called Sasy Chic *blushes* and they are just wonderful to wear with pretty frocks and dressed and sexy as all get out poking through he cuffs of dress pants or jeans.
The texturing on these too is divine, really classy and chic is what she was going for and she succeeded.
The next 2 sets are the Incredible Liane dress in Gold and Turquoise, I am sharing two today but there are other colours available and all the contrast leggings options are wonderful, I especially love the white with grey - lol like thats not typical.
As soon as I put this one , I knew that the Sasy Chic were going to be a perfect companion. Totaly modern Greek Goddess styled dress , and the shoes are made by Aphrodite , NO BRAINER , and of course as I gazed into the shoes folder, all the colours matched up perfectly - meant to be meant to be.
Liane is as I said truly a vision in old meets new, the wonderful tie at the shoulder in this one strap marvel had me feeling very luxurious and had anyone proposed running off to some island to dance all day I would have - Oh wait I did that *giggles*. perfect use of the layering options, with the leggings on the underwear layer and the dress on the top and pants layers.
I also love the symbol in the midsection of this dress, I am not sure what it means if anything but again it made me feel magical. With the Liane in Gold I am wearing the Medallion set earrings and bracelet from Essentia , the fabulous Tortoise shell Shades from Dernier Cri - love these and there were all sorts of tint options to choose when buying, as well as other frame colours .
In the Turquoise Liane, I went with this colour because of another fabulous Beanie tip, the *UnTone Quily* free bracelet(navy) which is a freebie and comes in two sizes, just look at all the work that went into this fabulous bangle cluster. The of Earrings and Necklace and the Gem Deco Silver Turquoise set - the Gem Deco collections come in gold or silver and many other incredible hand painted semi precious gemstones to choose from -and the Blue Harmony Hair Rose are all from Essentia . Because of the wonderful contrast leggings the Sasy Chic heels in the deeper turquoise matched wonderfully.
The next two sets from Persona are the Nola dresses, what I love about these straight away is their femininity with a definite old fashioned charm. Of course in my blogging land everything is timed to perfection, just as I changed clothes Roslin Petion of Fleur delivered to me the stunning NEW Lady Aurora skin, in the Vivant line of skins.
Unable to help myself I tried it on to be instantly in awe of not only its beauty as I always am with Fleur skins, but also the of course lol perfect match of the make up to the Cherry Nola dress I already had on - seriously sometimes, well most times my blogging kharmic energy is super duper lol.
The one other fabulous thing about the Fleur Vivant line is the absolute confidence that if you like the make up, you dont have to look over everything else, you could be covered from top to toe and only your face showing and if its a hit its a complete hit , thats so reassuring in skins buying . But if you haven't had the pleasure of Fleur skins yet, then of course DEMOOOOOOOO.
Back to Nola now, the lace top of this dress had me all worried that I wasnt going to be able to love the lace on its own, of course Myllie being Myllie had Mollie up her sleeve -thank goodness. So Nola is able to be Nola, an attractive and very beautiful babydoll style dress, but with as I said , an old fashioned charm to it, so that even though short, its not revealing - amazing how that can be portrayed depending on the design.
The boostier style bodice look over this delicate keyhole lace top - combined layer, not seperatable - runs down your body as you swish as you walk. Again beautiful additions of pantyhose but this time patterned ones *squeels* love them , spent a fortune in the 80's every weekend on patterned stockings only to have some (censored) smack into me with a cigarette when sitting on some ripped vinyl bar stool in some smoke filled dive at 4am - ok I probably deserved it then , or my mum would definitely say I did lol - but I DID LOOK FAB , and now you can too with these lovely detailed pantyhose.
Other standout feature is the lovely silver and feathered brooch that comes with the set, now in the cherry I am wearing the one that comes with , in the Grey I am wearing one from Kalon -more about that in a sec- another beautifully feminine adornment of earlier times, that don't get seen enough these days, mind you vintage brooches in the style like this one are very very chic right now. So make sure you make a copy of this one and put it in your favourite Jewelry pieces folder , will look wonderful when just wearing something like jeans and another style top.
The hair is the second style I got yesterday because of the Beanie one, its the BP* anna mori/dark brown from BP* , I adore the backcombed look to this and the length being not too long, so its even cuter the amount of work you would need to do to achieve this look RL . This style would look wonderful with a headband or even a little tiara .
Now in the Nola Grey I went with bare legs , just because I can :P, but opted for even more traditional jewelry in the form of the Cameo Pearl set from Kalon , I have been dieing to wear this for so long , and every time I went to , something just wasn't quite right , but see its because I was waiting for Nola . Love the choker and love the brooch , again definitely something you could use to add some uniqueness to something a bit more casual and even more modern .
So off you all go to Persona and grab these beauties as well as a Beanie run. Have a great day all ♥
