#112 – Crossover

Compilation-01
Remember I promised change in my last post? I’ve kept to my words and this is the first change you’ll be seeing here on the blog. I’ve always had a love for editorials and after getting inspired by so many amazing Flickr users, I thought, why not incorporate that editorial theme further into my photos too?
And this is the first crossover between Model On A Budget and Damn, Kai! so it had to be exciting!
For this shoot I was super inspired by the haute couture mask from Vale Koer that was sold out at Project Limited last year. I knew the styling had to be modern, and so I opted for a simple studio background with simple poses. I started with my male avatar, and I knew that I wanted something structured, so I chose the Kang blazer by David Heather for the March round of TMD and completed the look with the buttondown from the label’s Seventeen suit.
For my female avatar, I wanted a complete contrast in terms of color, so I picked black as the main color, like the Tory plunge dress in onyx by Rowne, as well as the Vers platforms, again by David Heather for uber. For the handbag, it needed to be stylish, something like an it-bag, so I opted for Murray‘s Ekberg leather tote as it had a stylish silhouette, and picked it in white to contrast nicely against the dress in the photo.
Since the outfits were kinda simple, with poses that weren’t too complicating would be perfect for showcasing the items. And so with Jackson’s help, I thought it turned out pretty amazing, and I’m really happy with the results.
What do you guys think of this crossover project? Do you like it? Do you dislike it? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
Love, Kai

I just thought I’d do another action-themed shoot, cos I haven’t been doing something like this for a little while. In case you guys didn’t know, I was trying to reference spy movies where the female protagonist goes undercover to seduce corrupt government officials and then escapes the scene with guns blazing. The dress by .SALT and the shoes by G&D gave the perfect look, and I accessorized it with the most appropriate bracelet ever, a gift for The Fantasy Collective by Valentina E. Couture (such amazing stuff from the label).
By the way, change is coming, which is why you might notice that I have chose to hide a certain part of myself in this photo. Be sure to check back soon to find out!
Love, Kai

Hi everyone, so I’ve begun blogging for an event called Method Village. Well, it’s technically an area, but the event also shares the same name and it has already begun and lasts till the 25th of each month. In this post, I’m featuring the Ara sun dress from BENDER, one of my favorite labels.
With the first look on the left, I styled it with the Ema hair from pr!tty, as well as the overknee socks by AviCandy, which comes in system, and appliers for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza and Omega, so it fits almost everyone! I topped it up with the oh-so-elegant Reverie wraps from fri. from this month’s ~uber~ event.
For the second look, I chose a different colored dress paired with the same hair, and styled it with the Lima platforms from KC Couture, which has a color hud with 40 color options so you’re able to customize it to your heart’s content!
Let me know which of the two looks you prefer in the comments below!
Love, Kai

Hey guys, I thought maybe I squeeze in one winter-themed photo just in time for the end of Winter. The outfit featured in this post comes from Wicca’s Wardrobe, a really elegant and pretty set released for this month’s On9 event. Also available at the event are this beautiful pair of belted heels from the same designer.
I styled the look with a vintage-y hairstyle to fit with the vintage feel I got from the outfit, as well as a leather bag from KEEM for the Tres Chic event, which is sadly unavailable anymore, but the new round of Tres Chic is open! I also added a warm drink (cos everyone needs one in the winter) from VALE KOER for the Shiny Shabby event, and this one is a freebie, so head on down quick to grab them! Lots of other designers have put out freebies too, well, almost all designers so have fun shopping.
We’re heading into Spring next, and it’s gonna be an exciting season!
Love, Kai

Sadly, this will be my last time blogging for AZUL. I love the brand, don’t get me wrong, they make amazing and dreamy gowns like this one featured above. It was always a pleasure blogging for AZUL, but as I’ll be dedicating half my time to blogging menswear on my new blog Damn, Kai! (which you should check out right now if you haven’t :P), I’ll be resigning as blogger for a few womenswear labels to make sure I still can cope >.<
I hope you guys can support me in this decision, and I’ll definitely bring you more awesome posts on this blog (and the other as well).
PS: I think I kinda look like Alicia Vikander in this photo haha

There’s a brand new label to look forward to here in SL! It’s called Mulloy, and is started by an amazing entrepreneur Thomaz Mulloy (cheltn098). Thomaz is an entrepreneur because he’s been doing lots of things in SL, and now he’s begun to take on designing. The Mulloy woman is one who loves the simplicity and luxe of classic Italian design.
His first release for Mulloy is a simple yet beautiful mermaid gown which comes in 4 colors: ice, navy, nude and onyx. In this photo, I have on the navy version and I chose to style it with a pearl necklace and matching bracelet, to stay true to the Mulloy vision.
Please do check out the Mulloy store, and support Thomaz if you love the Milano gown as much as I do!
Love, Kai

#106 – Outerwear Series: The Bomber Jacket

The last post in this series features the bomber jacket. This version comes from Pixicat, a label which I love very much because of how creative areve‘s original mesh creations are, as well as the quality of every item.
The bomber jacket is in trend this Spring season in a variety of different treatments, ranging from lightweight fabrics like neoprene or nylon to slightly heavier ones like suede and leather. You can accessorize the bomber jacket to almost any style you like, and for this editorial I chose to go for a more sportswear inspired look. You can dress it down, perhaps layering the jacket over tee-shirt and jeans for a casual look for a day out, or even go as far as to wear it over a dress or a gown for a high-low fashion moment. 
Leave a comment if you liked this series and perhaps I’ll do another continuation of this series another time featuring other outerwear. Or if there’s any other editorial series you’d like me to do, just let me know!
Love, Kai
