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

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

So yellow is probably not a color that is very related to Fall but it was so pretty I decided to blog it for you guys anyway. This dress comes from AZUL, and a limited Sapphire version was shown at the Solaris Fashion Week previously but the good thing is, the other color options are available for purchase at their main store!
I paired the dress with a more neutral and simple looking shoes (took me a rather long time to find the right pair) from Baby Monkey. The Ola Sandals are their group gift, it’s still in the store and there’s a color change HUD so you can pick the color you prefer. I picked the Lindi earrings and necklace from BaUbLeS! by Phe to match the dress as well as the eyeshadow from .charme.
We shot at this sim called Stonehaven Maine, a peaceful town/fishing port with a nice view. Perhaps when you’re there you can stop by the diner, or visit the cafe by the jetty, where I took my photos at! Have fun exploring!
Love, Kai

#89 – Warrior Princess

I’m not whether many of you will get this reference, but having the knowledge of Xena and having watched a few episodes on TV in the past probably makes me kinda old haha. I was trying to channel as much Xena as I could to suit this look from Du Jour.
The Valkyra outfit by Du Jour is an exclusive to Penumbra Fashion Week and can only be purchased there. After the event it will no longer be in stores, so if you would like the outfit for yourself you gotta head down immediately. In particular I love the headpiece and the chest piece as they were made to resemble wings. Come to think of it, maybe I should have done a flying shot instead. I paired the look with gladiator boots from Miss Canning, which unfortunately has closed down in SL. However, lots of other stores sell the gladiator boots and you’ll be able to find one you like really easily. I’ve accessorized the look with a slightly more embellished and whimsical sword from Tabou Irresistible. Jackson got this for me from the Marketplace but it is also available in the mainstore, depending on whichever is more convenient for you.
The Willow hair from pr!tty is an old release and might not be available anymore. You would probably have to contact Karla Marama for enquiries. Also, her store will not be accessible these few days or even weeks as it is undergoing renovation, so the best way for everything pr!tty related should be directed to her. The eyeliner comes as part of the LeLutka Mesh Head package, done by Glam Affair. The lipstick, on the other hand is a release by .charme. for the Cosmopolitan Events. These few days are the last chances to get it at Cosmopolitan, but if you aren’t able to, they will be available in her store too after the event.
Speaking of appliers, the LeLutka mesh head has undergone a few updates and improvements. Not really sure if you noticed, but I have a slightly different expression than how I usually look like. With the new update, you get to customize your favorite facial expressions, ranging from mischievous to angry, so you won’t find the need to force your mouth open during the shoot itself. Everything is upgraded to fit within the hud, just a click and you’ll get the look you like.
This is probably gonna be my last post for Penumbra Fashion Week, I hope you guys enjoyed the other looks I posted and had a great time shopping for clothes at the sim. I had much fun doing photo shoots too and I’ll see you in the next one! 
Love, Kai

#87 – The Day After Tomorrow

Some futuristic fashion for you guys in this third post for Penumbra Fashion Week. This is the second time I’ve done futuristic fashion or a sci-fi themed photo, with the first being this look. I know lots of you will get the name of this post being a reference to the title of a famous movie, in which the world freezes over. And this was the theme of the shoot, not just sci-fi or futuristic but also with a bit of Snow Queen influences too.
The outfit which inspired this whole look is the Breyanna Dress by the ever so creative Wicca’s Wardrobe for this season’s Penumbra Fashion Week. The Raquel heels and the Grace headpiece are also available at the store, each sold separately. Wicca’s Wardrobe is well-known for her forward-looking and out of the box designs. I used to always visit her store and think how lovely it would be to try out a more avant garde aesthetic and blog for her. Well, the chance is finally here and I’m loving it! I put on a lighter skin tone, the Klara skin in Light tone from Elysium, to channel the look of a snow queen. The freebie Winteria necklace from Pure Poison enhanced the look as well.
The makeup from .charme. was kept really simple, leaning towards a more monochromatic tone. The hair comes from SOONSIKI or Besom; to be honest I don’t really know the name of the label cos it has been rebranded a few times and both names show up, but it’s a playful ponytail that looks as if it’s being blown sideways. Well, the hair was meant to look like you’re pulling it, the pose is included in the purchase, but in this case I’ve used it like it’s being blown in the wind.
And now I need to talk about the eyes. It was an unexpected moment with the eyes cos Jackson suggested I change my usual Amacci eyes to something blue or gray to fit the look. So I sieved through my inventory and I just tried on this pair of Fitting Guide eyes (I don’t even think this is a proper name for it), and it matched the look so well we used it. Now, this pair of eyes aren’t meant to be the usual eyes you get from IKON but it’s more of a thing you put on first before adding the mesh eyes to guide them into the right position. It’s kinda complicated and hard to explain but it was perfect for this look haha.
I hope you guys like this look and get inspired by it to create your own sci-fi look too. The next post comes tomorrow, and till then, happy shopping! 
Love, Kai

So I thought I’d do my take on old Hollywood glamour for this post. Please forgive me if there are styling issues with this cos I’m still rather unfamiliar with old Hollywood glamour but I’m working hard!
I picked an obvious choice (look at the name haha) for the main outfit, a dress from KL Couture that was a group gift. The good thing is, it even comes with a necklace that practically screams ‘this is the 50s!’. For the hair, I chose something that would complement the dress, a hairdo that wasn’t exactly very dated nor modern, probably just the right amount of vintage, and also a hairstyle that will work now. The oh-so-very-sharp heels are the Yeriak heels by Lybra, and it comes in 3 dusty colors (Pastel Leaf, Dusty Rose and Lilac), perfect for that vintage or glamorous look.
This post is kinda short, but before I go I should probably recommend the Ganesvoort House to everyone reading this. It’s a really pretty manor, complete with a patio overlooking the pool. It’s good for a nice relaxing summer photo, and even night party photos. With the right windlight, your photos will look even more amazing than how it already is at the sim! Do check it out!
Love, Kai

As promised, here’s another post featuring a few items from the Event @ 1st, still happening now till the 25th. I actually styled this look around the White Widow tattoo and the POSH PIXELS corset. I thought that these two items could come together for a tough girl look, that was the starting point for a basic idea for a photo. From there, it developed into a femme fatale concept, which was why I added the katana and begged Jackson to bring me to a Japanese sim for the concept to really come through.
The White Widow tattoo comes in a few colors, the other two being Dark (yes, that’s what it’s called) and Blue. It also comes in 3 shades, whether you like the tattoo faded, normal or really dark. I like it precisely because it gives a yakuza vibe to it, and the tattoo is very feminine, so it’s perfect if you aren’t looking for something that’s too tough. The corset is by POSH PIXELS and comes with a color hud where you can customise it any way you want to. It doesn’t come with a set of underwear, which was why I styled it with my own panties that came together with my Maitreya Lara mesh body.
I chose a red and black color scheme when I was putting the look together so the red Tendril Platform Heels by KRAVE suited the whole look, and kinda lent this  perverse twist to the photo haha. The hair was actually styled last. I was searching so hard for the right hair which could give that ‘I’m dangerous, so try me’ kinda look, and when I put on the Jona hair, a group gift from EMO-tions, I was so happy. There’s no hud to it, this is how the gift comes, perfect for this look!
You guys still have about 2 more days to check out this month’s Event @ 1st, so don’t hesitate! If you like the items featured here, here’s your TP!
Love, Kai

A new hair has been released as a group gift at TRUTH! And this is major good news cos as you know, TRUTH doesn’t release group gifts that often. Essena is an elegant hairstyle that you can use for different occasions, from high fashion to casual. I don’t know how long the gift will be available, so do stop by and grab it soon.
This amazing mermaid gown is the Tempest, a new release from Lybra. I don’t know about you, but I really love mermaid gowns. I think the silhouette of a mermaid gown elongates your body, and it makes you look real sexy. I paired the outfit with the Lexi jewelry set from Pure Poison. Again, this is a group gift, and the group is free to join. You get lots of gifts from Pure Poison as a member so it definitely is great to join the group!
See you guys on the next post!
Love, Kai

Hi everyone, ok so you might notice that I look different now. Yes, I do look different because I’m in the midst of changing my shape when I took this photo. The skin I’m wearing is also different, it’s the Aneko skin released by Elysium for the anyBODY event. I’m not sure when it might end so if you like it please head on down and check it out!
This amazing outfit is from Lybra, and it’s part of a 3-piece Angel Collection. Do check out the Lybra mainstore if you’d like to find out how the other two releases look like! The necklace is a older group gift from Pure Poison, lots of nice group gifts from them. They’re in the midst of a store renovation, so it might be a little confusing to navigate your way towards the group gifts. But do be patient, as there really are nice accessories to grab!
My look is still gonna be changing, so come back soon to visit to see what I look like!
Love, Kai
