Red, Blue and Azul

AzulPortfolio2

Independence Day. It’s not just about food, fun and fireworks. This summer holiday is about freedom and the high costs of having it. For me celebrating the 4th of July is about giving thanks to those who served and are currently serving to allow me to have the freedom to post this blog without censorship. It’s about the freedom of speech, and the freedom to be the person I want to be. So in this second entry for my Azul Portfolio as part of the Miss Azul 2015 competition, I salute those who have fought and died to give me the freedom to be able to be a part of this competition. I’ve chosen to use two different “Licca” outfits. The beautiful corset dress has ribbons that tie on top of the shoulders as well as up the back, and the skirt is composed of beautiful roses with sheer tulle. It also comes with a mini top-hat adorned with the same roses. For my look the Corset is from the Sapphire and the hat/skirt are from the garnet. Happy Independence Day to all.

Loving Tay from Mars

TayHelmet1

A new round of the EVENT @ 1st is open and this month’s theme is anime. So many of the items work well together, from the gachas to the exclusives created just for this event. I have on a fantastic outfit created in collaboration between Hate Me and Eat Me with Lybra. The “Love Letter From Mars” skirt and top is a fantastic original mesh design with long sleeve, a futuristic tall collar and form fitting pencil skirt all decked out in a futuristic pattern with mirrored, metallic textures. Add to this the amazing original mesh helmet “Tay” from Lybra with it’s black and silver design with super-hero style wings off the sides and you have a great look for sure. I’ve added the lipstick from {MUA} at the event – “Volume” lipstick in silver fair, as it goes perfect with this ensemble. Find the rest of the styling notes below.

Lexa from AZUL

AzulPortfolio1

Summer special shopping events are always so much fun. I spend way too much lindens, as I know you all do too. But I’m always thrilled when I find something I just love, and Lexa from -AZUL- for the SOU by creation.jp event is one of those. This strapless, mesh gown has a coral, satin bodice, with straight skirt accented with beautiful roses in the texture of the print. Sheer pink flexi’s around the legs and a train that attaches with roses at the waist make this a beautiful summer choice. This is a great gown even for a bridal, or even bridesmaids. You can wear it without the train as well for a less formal touch. Either way this special color is only for the event, so be sure to head over before it’s gone and pick up yours!

Snapshot_0062

Hate Me and Eat Me has relocated to the amazing new Rue A La Page sim with a fantastic new mainstore. To celebrate, designer Riri has created a beautiful original mesh creation called “Nina”. This fun, casual dress is just what you need for summer and comes in 5 fun colors including the Lilla I’m wearing here. Just the right length, this sleeveless, high-neckline dress comes in two pieces so it can easily be mixed and matched as you choose. I’ve chosen to pair it with the new Vanessa Necklace and Earrings from Lybra another designer that is at home on the Rue A La Page sim. See all Styling Details below. To visit the new H.M.A.E.M mainstore: click here.
