#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

Hey everyone, I thought I’d just do a quick and simple shoot before I go away from blogging for a month. I knew I had to do a jewelry shoot because I haven’t done one that focused mainly on accessories in a while, and in this post I’m wearing the Turquoise Coral jewelry set from BaUbLeS! by Phe. If you fancy this jewelry set, head down to the main store right away!
So sorry Phe, I haven’t been blogging your items in a while, but I do hope you like this! And for everyone else too, I hope you like it too!
Lastly, happy holidays, and I’ll see you guys in a month! 
Love, Kai

Don’t be fooled! There’s absolutely no black and white filter going through this photo (other than the flowers) at all. This photo was shot entirely in color at Apple Fall.
I was very inspired by Halloween looks that involved painting yourself completely in black and white, as if you had just stepped out from an old television. I decided to try it for myself, since the convenience of SL is the ease of just changing your looks just like that, without the need for any paint whatsoever. I realized I had the ‘ingredients’ (for the lack of a better word) needed for this look to happen.
The Glam Affair skin for the LeLutka mesh head and Maitreya mesh body happened to come in an Arctic version, which was completely white. If you recall, I used it once before right here. Next was the makeup, and to be honest, this was the simplest part of styling the whole look cos you can find black makeup just about anywhere. Some black eyeshadow from .charme., as well as the grunge gloss from Shakeup! did the trick. 
This pretty little dress from ISON, which came as a gift from the Hair Fair a few months ago just happened to contain a black and white version, which was a dream come true for me. Of course, there’s also colored options too. I matched the dress with a pair of Astrid classic pumps courtesy of Elysium. Elysium makes such amazing shoes I definitely had to showcase their newest designs. To complete the look, I chose a hair from pr!tty. I haven’t blogged pr!tty in such a long time (sorry Karla!), so I thought this would be a good time to do so. Besides, pr!tty hairs are always the best choice if you’re going for a soft and effortless look. The newest huds come in Grayscales and Wilds, so there are more color options now. I’ve been dying for a grayscale hud so I was super excited I could show it to you guys.
To keep the look from being too boring, I chose to add flowers to the look – partly as a matching element to the pattern on my dress – so that there would be a pop of color. A simple background and a simple pose brought this look to life. It’s definitely one of my favorite looks so far. You seldom do see people in SL walking around in black and white too, so I thought it was kinda interesting and cute. Might be sticking with this look for awhile. I hope you guys love it!
Love, Kai
