Hey everyone, I’m back after a little break with my most modern chic look yet. It might sound like I’m praising myself, but I don’t think I’ve done lots of modern chic looks and this by far is definitely my favorite look. Come to think of it, it might also be because I’ve picked out the clothing ensemble for a styling competition once so I feel strongly for it haha.
Anyways I shall shall start with the top, the Cheeky top by Pixicat. The fabric patterns and colors are grouped into similar colors and released in different huds, so when you buy a specific color you’re also getting a few other colors in one, which is rather worth it! The same goes for the Lula pants from GizzA, they come in different fabric types, and this one I’m wearing is the leather pack. Since the colors of both the top and pants were rather neutral, I picked a neutral latte-colored blazer from Emery to complete the look.
Accessories also come in neutral tones, from the nude sandals by 1992 to the brown Byron hat, a menswear release from Elysium. The glasses I’m wearing are from Wicca’s Wardrobe, and they’re called the Kai glasses. And yes, true to what you might be thinking, it was named after me because Wicca was naming her glasses when I joined her blogger’s group haha. I’m so honored, thank you so much, Wicca!
I kept the lips matte and in a slightly darker shade of red to complement the look, and the lipstick comes from Shakeup!. The minimalist necklace comes from Secret Love, and is a group gift available for grabs!
I have a few more looks coming out before the end of November so please do check back soon!
Love, Kai

Time For Fashion Week

teaser2final
Hey everyone, I guess if you’re into fashion just like me, you’ll probably know that Fashion Week has already took place in New York, Milan and Paris, and the next part of it happens in London. Coinciding with that, is Second Life’s very own Penumbra Fashion Week, from the 17th of October, running all the way till the 24th.
Expect lots of new clothing releases by more than 50 different labels! That means it’s time to get new clothes off the racks, and you’ll be totally on trend. There will be more than 280 outfits in 16 spectacular productions. That equates to about 2 shows per day to attend! It’s definitely gonna be a busy period for designers, bloggers and you, the audience!
And for this season, I’ve been picked to become a blogger for the event. So for the next few posts, do expect to see the latest releases from a few designers and do attend the shows or pay the mainstore a visit if take a liking to the items! See you soon!
Love, Kai

Omg it has been so long since I last blogged. It has been a month, I think! Well I have been rather occupied with RL so I’m only on SL for a few hours each day.
Besides I have also embarked on a few projects. The first, is that I’m now a model for the TEOM Magazine! The Evolution of Model (TEOM) Magazine is a rather young publication company so it’s great to work with them and grow in experience along with them. You’ll be seeing me in a spread done by Jackson in the October issue of the magazine so do watch out!
The second project, or rather, the second job, is with the prestigious BOSL Magazine! This time, my role is not a model, but a writer. For my first publication with them, the October issue too, I’m in charge of two articles! The first is a Top 5 Halloween List where I recommend the 5 exciting things in SL to do next month, and the other article is about a new designer, where I have featured the amazing Honey Bender-Auer and her newest label, Bender.
As such, I’ve decided to dedicate this post to Honey, for agreeing to do the interview and also giving me the opportunity to blog for her womenswear labels, both Bender and FasterPussyCat. The Carnivale Suit, which will be released soon, is part of their Fall collection, and features patterns and detailing on interesting textures, and also has a gothic theme to it. Taking style cues from Honey, I styled myself the same way. Dark eyeshadows from Nuuna, a latest release for LeLutka heads. It’s affordable, and comes in 10 different styles, from edgy to avant garde. The dark red lipstick comes from Shakeup!, a cosmetics brand that offers a wide range of lipsticks for LeLutka heads too. Whatever the style you want, they have it.
Contrasting the skin against the dark clothing, I chose the Europa skin tone from the default selection of Glam Affair skins and matched it with a dip-dyed red bob from Chemistry Hair. I absolutely adore the hairs from them, and I also got the Min hair from the label before this for my MVW Challenge, which, by the way I didn’t get through but it was a fantastic learning experience and I made friends!
You guys are also getting a sneak peek of the Fiero Sallow Heels from FasterPussyCat which will definitely be released soon in Honey’s store. I love those heels, they so playful but still edgy in itself so you can style them either way. Thank you, Honey!
More posts coming soon, I hope I do find time to style myself with cooler outfits so do check back often!
Love, Kai

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of descriptions in the last two posts. I kinda posted them during my RL busy period, so I was more concerned with getting the posts out so that you guys had something to look at, at least. Now that I’m free again, here is a post to bridge the summer and fall season. And what better way to do it than with an this beautiful evening gown by AZUL.
The Nayomi gown is a recent release from AZUL and the thing I love most about AZUL dresses and gowns is that they come in a stunning choice of 14 colors. I’m not gonna list all the colors down for you, you can check them out at the AZUL mainstore. So there’s most likely one color that you’ll absolutely love, but of course do still try on the demos before making your purchase. This gown is a little tricky to wear, so the demos will be useful.
I complemented the color of the gown with the yellow eyeshadow from .charme.. It comes in a collection of 4 different eyeshadow colors in one pack to match your outfits. This eyeshadow is kinda hard to wear, so I was glad to have found the right occasion to make use of it. For my hair, I went with a hairstyle and color that would not clash with the gown or take away the attention from it, so a slicked back style in a light color worked best. Though this hair is a Hair Fair gift from fiore and isn’t available anymore, you can find other similar styles at the fiore mainstore. Oh, and one more thing, you guys gotta go grab this pearl necklace from Lazuri! It’s a freebie set of two necklaces and are so perfect for evening looks. There are two other freebies there too, just head into the Lazuri mainstore and walk right till the end, you won’t miss it.
Hope you guys loved this elegant photo shoot I did with Jackson. The fall season is coming real soon now, so do expect more posts that are suitable for fall!
Love, Kai
