The Back To Black Event 2012 – Strength

The Back To Black event starts February 11th through February 29th and is brought to you by Chic Management.  This event is to promote mental health awareness and is themed around inspirational themes; like Love, Strength, Family, Friendship, etc.  I chose two items from Strength for this post, perception is that you either have it or don’t.  The truth is you cultivate it, and exercise it like a muscle, it’s something you’ve had all along.

Back to Black - Yoga - Izzie's

Izzie’s has made these cute leisure sets that come in three colors, with choice of coordinating drawstring cording. I like how comfortable they look, specially while doing some yoga.   Elefantu‘s Yoga Studio is a fun item featured.  It’s a full yoga studio, that comes with a surround sphere so you get the full effect of being out and about at the studio. It’s decorated with yoga mats for you and your yoga buddies, relaxing candles, water cooler, and other decor. Each yoga mat comes with menu driven yoga animations.

For this post I am also wearing new hair from Ploom, and new skin from Adam n Eve.  I love this long pony tail, and how it’s divided over the shoulder and down the back.  Amaris is a beautiful skin I plan to show more indepth in another post.  I went with a natural look for this with the Fraiche.  Included are matching manicures and pedicures on layers, chest enhancers and ‘dehancers’, hair bases in Black, Brown, Pale Blond, and Red. Freckles, and eyebrows in Blond, Brown and Red.

Road Trip

So while having an incredibly crazy dream that Sasy, Ashia and I were on a road trip one thing stuck out.  Ashia demanding that I wear cream.  I remember looking at the outfit she’d picked out, the pants were a very tailored corduroy, and more a light banana creme.  When I woke up and logged in I knew I had to wear these great mesh pants from SLink.   Gawk! just released shaded long pull overs in a range of colors, worn here is brown. I have mine tucked in, but you can wear it over and longer.  I love my mon tissu Seneca Threaded Leather Belt, it’s available in eight colors, and lots of variations in brown to get it just right.  Maitreya‘s latest release are mesh ankle boots called Devi.  They look great, and are available in eleven colors.  My hair is also a mesh goody from Wasabi Pills, I love this hair style.  The soft thick braids up front, and long and loose in the back, with trendy 2012 bangs. The mesh moves with you really doing this style justice. I’m wearing eyes and skin from Amacci.  I like that my lipstick is this deep red soft shade that goes perfectly with my Mandala nails, and picks up the red in my shoes, and the the red tones in my belt and bag. My bag is another mesh item, that moves with the body, from Celoe, also available in a selection of colors.

Le Dinner Guest

Recently I was invited over to Sasy’s for dinner.  I threw on a cocktail dress from Connors, added two, yes, two sets of false eyelashes for drama, and bundled up in my Harris Tweed Coat from S H I.  I love this coat, so warm, and very chic.  I also love my concave cut from SLink, it’s beautiful, sleek, and perfect all the way around.

Sugarsmack & Mimikri

Sugarsmack Mimikri

I love tunics, but when I saw the shades of purple on this one from Mimikri, I knew this Zaara skirt would work with it well, and decided to mod it shorter to a top.  I love that the colors from my Salience Socks & tights from Shoe Fair 2011 were perfect. This variation Maitreya did on Salience really added a fun element to already cute shoes.  I got to know Sugarsmack hair from Hair Fair 2011, and fell in love.  Shown here is Lorne, in Coco Pudding.  I love the shape of the hair, the whispy bits that move, and the lovely braid across the forehead.

Celebration

Celebration

I recently assembled this party attire for a celebration.  I wanted something somewhat youthful, fun, and full of life, and I think this dress from Mimikri was perfect.  I love that my favorite pair of heels from LeLutka in Soft Blush were a perfect match.  I went with League’s Raven Necklace for jewelry, I really love this piece as it reminds me of a pair of antique earrings I want in real life.
