Memories of Harlem #35

Hi loves! I hope you guys are having a really swell Monday. I on the other hand can’t wait for today to be over with. Since it was a pretty rough day for me personally, I needed to do something creative to calm my mind and what better way to do that than blog about virtual clothes LOL?! Anywho, I’m coming to you with a style featuring Oro‘s new Chai dress which will be available for purchase at the Dope Fall Fashion Week starting today. This dress is very elegant and has a vintage vibe going on so I came up with the classic look below for you. I hope you enjoy. ❤

She Earned It

Hello loves! So yesterday, was the grand opening of Oro and I was feeling a little bit inspired by Bollywood for some odd reason and wanted an outfit to semi reflect that style.  And with me being the person I am, I was late and had to hurry to put an outfit together. Your girl has been working on a very strict SL budget this week so I had to make due with what I had and dig deep into my inventory to pull off my vision and I must say that my inventory is the real MVP because I was very pleased with what I came up with. Of course I couldn’t attend an Oro grand opening without rocking something from the store, so I opted for this really cute cutout halter top in the color Orange Juice and I paired it with a 100% mesh skirt from Tetra. Now loves, I’m going to be very honest with you guys as I do always. I love this skirt (especially the crease detailing and that live olive color) but it was very difficult for me to deal with as far as fitting my body. My avi is pretty petite (I usually wear mesh in either a size S or XS) and I STILL had to alter my shape to fit the skirt properly AND use a static pose the entire time at the party in order to avoid body parts sticking through the skirt. This could definitely be a negative for a person that wouldn’t consider altering their shape but if you don’t mind tweaking your shape (anything for fashion!), I would highly recommend purchasing this skirt.

So….this You’re Cool hair from Milk (now known as Besom) seems to be in hot demand but unbeknownst to me, it’s not available inworld anymore. I didn’t realize this until I was contacted by quite a few people who really want this hair. I ended up leaving a notecard with the creator inquiring about possibly bringing this hair back. I haven’t heard back from her yet but once I do, I will update this post and also my facebook with her response. In the meantime, you can try Besom’s Piled Up Bun as an alternative. The Piled Up Bun (shown below) will still work well with Gaja‘s baby hairbase.

End of Summer

Hi my beautiful ones! Well the end of summer is right around the corner so I thought it would be a nice little tribute to the changing of the season by relaxing at the beach. I’ve been doing a little bit of exploring around the grid and I found this really cute spot called Garden of Whimsy. It’s a great place to go with a group of friends to just chill and relax in a beautiful setting. The sim is decked out with a really beautiful beach theme along with a lot of furniture and objects that have some pretty nice poses for you to take a ton of pictures. I opted to keep my style casual with super cute ripped jeans from Oro (Alonzia Bleached Jeans) along with my regular go-to sexy jean top from Vive Nine. Check the details below for the styling and a couple of photos I took around the sim. *Please note that the left and right poses are from the furniture on the sim.

On My Way

Hello again beautiful ones! I’m back with another look featuring Oro’s Karah dress in Red & Black.  This is such a lovely dress guys! I really like the fact that this dress has a long length high waist skirt which is rare for me to see unless it’s a formal gown. I also love the vintage vibe I’m getting from the sheer polka dot top w/ the deep plunging bustier. This dress is very classy with an added touch of sexiness.

Negasi

Hey beautiful ones! I’m going to jump right into it…. I’m wearing the new Ashanti dress from ORO which is currently featured at the SL Vogue event. She comes in 6 vibrant top colors along with the traditional Ghanaian Kente Cloth skirt. I really like the craftsmanship of this dress and it’s so easy to find items to pair it with to bring a certain look together. You really can dress this up or down and it would still be B-O-M-B.com in my opinion. I kept the look simple and paired the dress with an over the shoulder blazer I picked up from Ryvolter along with jewelry from EarthStones. I love the way this look turned out!

Candy Crush

Hey peeps! I’m not gonna even front. This is one of my favorite looks that I’ve blogged so far. I LOVE bright/loud colors and this definitely fits the bill LOL. The limited edition purse from Moda was the inspiration for this look. There were a lot of nice colors to play around with so I decided to just run with it and use them all. The Kemet Vest from ORO is something I would rock on a regular basis. It’s sexy yet not too revealing…a perfect balance. I could go on and on about the outfit because I really love everything you see but I will just shut up on and post the deets below LOl. ❤

Aces High

I’m back again beautiful ones! I’m wearing the brand new Aces Dress from ORO which is currently available at the PHAT Fashion Fair. This cute dress comes in 10 hot colors and is soooo sexy. I’m absolutely in love with the Katara shoes from Ben’s Boutique that I paired this dress with! The colors along with the shoe detailing just works for this look. And I know what some of you guys are thinking,  this look is giving off a 90’s Motions perm commercial vibe but I don’t care LOL, I’m in love with the look. I also added these oh so cute purple Daisy Hoops from LX which added a cute touch imo.
