Fashionable Relay Challenge #21

I'd been following the fashionable baton being passed on, getting more and more excited, even nervous, and finally when I get to my turn in this wonderful challenge by Sasy Scarborough. I had to go visit my in-laws for the week-end! YAY, happy times!!!That explains the delay in posting, people! I'm back home..time for fun!

Thank you Newdoll from Just A Girl's Blog  for handing over the baton. Lovely ensemble you put together, making it quite hard for me to pick what to relay, I must admit! Shoes, hair, shorts and shirt, I wanted it all!

The beautiful white flower on Newdoll's neck caught my attention right away though, when reading her post, and since I'd never been to LOULOU&CO, the Nostalgia necklace will be my item to relay.
(I had to have it too, anyway)

I decided I didn't want to go with the brands I love to wear, but to try and look for new stuff out there, visit stores I'd never bought stuff from or perhaps even knew about before. I guess it wouldn't be a challenge if I went with what I knew, otherwise I'd picked those Maitreya Soho Boots INSTANTLY! Since I have them ALL! haha...

Seeing as many of the posts in the relay have been more casual in style, I wanted to couture it out for you y'all.
I don't know how to dress causal as female! LOL! Yeah..I'm the only male in this challenge. ;)

It was time for me to enter unknown fashion land!
Here goes!

Phew! What a day! This was some challenge I have to say, to go couture with only separates and shops I don't really know! It was HARD I tell you! I don't think I've ever tp around as much as today! Bearing with lag and crashes takes its toll!
I have to admit though, not everything are from stores I've never bought from or heard of. Some items I already had in my inventory, things I always wear and know I won't find better, not worth trying to look even.

So I began searching for what might match the flower on my neck, and this is what I came up with.


Top: AMARIAH - Mist, Crochet Lace Top.
The lace detailing in this top is just amazing and the different textures below the chest makes this little top couture stylish. The second I saw it I knew I had to have it on me! And boy was it time to find something I'd been looking all day! The top also comes with lace sleeves on glove layer.
I have a feeling this little store will soar!

Jacket: *Fishy Strawberry* - Decadence Mongolian Fur - Coal
Nothing says Couture Lux more than a lush fur bolero jacket!

Skirt: Mimikri hot couture - Paris black/Evening Skirt
The skirt is so big and luxurious, I had to make it bigger! I love to sexy walk in it! LOL!
Besides I needed something to compensate the jacket.

Tights: *Sheer* -Tights 27: Opaque Black
OK, I had this in my inventory. If you don't have nylon stockings from Sheer, you don't have nylon stockings. So what if you can't see them! ;)


Headpiece: [gisele] - hair/Zoe nuit head accessory
The sweater I have from this store, is pure sculptie wearable art. So going into the shop I had a feeling I would find something I'd like. But how could I have known that this little exquisite flower head piece would be there waiting for me, all matchy matchy with the crotchet lace top.
This is sold with a 4 pack of hair, but the hair didn't fit my large couture head!

Earrings: *kraftika jewelery - Earrings No 115
This set comes with an equally lovely necklace. The natural pearl shapes did it for me. I have to go back and snatch up the rest of the cute and interesting jewelery they had!

Shoes: Maitreya - Mishima Dawn - Patent Mix Liquorice
Had this in my inv already, however in Auburn, apparently not sold anymore. Well it didn't hurt to get the all black ones either. LOVE!

Gloves: Fleur(formerly TaP) - Leather Gloves Merlot
Just get the fat packs. Best gloves ever!

Necklace: LOULOU&CO - Nostalgia necklace
This necklace has so much going on, you can look at if the longest and still find new details!


What's great about this hair beside the great shape and fierceness, is that it comes in a pack of 5 colors each with a 133 color change script! Hours of fun..LOL!

Skin : CHAI Skins - Double-Shot/ Lavender Tone 05
I'm a Chai guy! What can I say. I only wear Chai. Love the lips and the dramatic eyeshadow. Comes with/without freckles and extra cleaveage shading! Guess which I'm wearing....:)

Eyelashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes

Poses: ..::DARE::.. - Fashion/Runway poses
Fashion poses made by me. Will be released soon!

OK, I'm done styling for a while! Thank you Sasy, I had a blast putting this together.
And now I hand over the baton to Lucy Kenin.  Have fun girl!



  1. Awesome! I kinda was hoping you'd do it as a guy 'cause I was curious to see how that'd go (easy: tattoos; hard: hair. Hey, retro hippie is all the rage, isn't it?) But this is most excellent. Great find on the flower for the hair, and the earrings! Can't wait to see the poses you've been working on. So far they look very good! =) Maybe you can give us a little more of a peek?

  2. you look amazing , well done.
