One of the brands I always buy during the weekend sales is Technofolk. I love their style, even though it is very much not me. I rarely wear their stuff, but I’m in awe with their aesthetics and creativity! So today I decided I will go out in a Technofolk outfit!
However, I have started the day with Guapa‘s Sol skin (weekend sale) on LeLUTKA‘s Avalon head. My hair is by Lueur (also a weekend sale item) and I am wearing COCO Design‘s Ribbed sweater, which is ALSO a weekend sale item. Yet,I am not feeling cheap :D. When I say weekend sale, it can be any of the many. I lose track!
However, with a fierce Technofolk outfit, I felt I needed a fierce makeup, and Identity Faces happens to have out the Love Me collection for the weekend sales, and the smokey glittery eye and glossy burgundy lips are perfect, especially when I added a little contour by Dotty’s Secret (Blended 2, 50%). Quite a difference, eh?
And there we are. 1:100 children are psychopaths? Sounds reasonable when you look at the amount of psycho (and socio-) paths in the world. I think it may actually be a little more!
So all items are by Technofolk here, from the coat and the shirt, to the pants and the harnesses. Only my Lena ankle boots, which you can’t see here, but fit the look very well, are from Gos
I have a couple of idiosyncracies that are history related. Whenever I watch my clock and see the time, either a historical event pops up in my mind: 12:15? Magna Charta! 13:48? Big plague! or, if I can’t think of any event, I MUST look up the time/year and see what happened. The same happens on occasion with dates. What happened on November 30? Well turns out that the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, as the first modern state in the world, abolished the death penalty on 30 November 1786. It’s equal parts fun and frustrating. I love history, so the more I know, the better it is, but at the same time, I sometimes just don’t have the time to go down that history rabbit hole (because it never just stops at that). What is something quirky/funny that you have? leave it in the comments!
On a whole different topic, I am simply blown away by Nuve‘s skins. I picked up Regina during the Black Friday sale and she gives me Uma Thurman vibes when worn on LeLUTKA‘s Halle. Can you see it? I’m wearing Regina with the Adele brows, also by Nuve because they are a bit more delicate and I’m also wearing Wings‘ ER1120 hair and Alexandrite‘s Vivid eyes. Such a pretty face doesn’t need any makeup at all, but yeah, I am a sucker for it, so let’s see how this ends up, k?
For the eyes, I decided on a simple coloured wing Glitter liner from Insol, and in the inner corner, I added a highlighter from Dotty’s secret, in a soft rose, which also goes into the lower waterline. My upper lashes are from Moonwaii, the parsley lashes, but the lower ones, are from the LeLUTKA HUD. For my lips, I went with a lovely stone red gloss from Goreglam from the This Kiss palette and made it a bit more transparent via the LeLUTKA HUD. A set of pearls always makes your face glow and these and while these Work Pearls from Yummy are old as dirt, they are still among my favourites because they are so simple and classy, like true classics!
For today’s outfit, I went with a nice mix up of some of my recent new purchases! I’m wearing Just Because’s Tasha shirt under Seniha‘s Mikaela vest and paired it with Blueberry’s Poppy leggings in the winter 2022 texture edition. Love this flowery pattern! and they were only 75L$ for the fat pack! Added a pair of Kaia chunky boots from Gos and I’m good to go. Or to stay, and watch some history documentaries!
My grandmother, whom I never had the pleasure of knowing, used to say this. Already in the 60’s she realised the power of makeup. Makeup is giving us the possibility to cover up the bits we don’t like in our face and emphasize what we do! She also used to say that, even if you’re having an off day, nothing stops you from looking like you have the best time. I beg to differ oma, some days you just lack the energy to look fab. Mental health is a thing these days in ways it never has been before.
Anyway, For today’s session I am starting out wearing Briannon by LeLUTKA and Glam Affair’s Reese skin, currently still available at The Fifty. I had to add a couple of layers to make me look this way, because honestly, Reese is flawless and that is not what I was looking for to begin with today. My eyes are an old gacha from Avi-Glam, called Lightstrike eyes and for my lashes, I have resorted to a trick. I also have some LeLUTKA male heads, and the lashes on those HUDs are more dainty than even the most natural ones on the female HUD. So I added the Jon HUD and used some of those! My hair is Amanda, from Magika. Shoutout: Magika has started their annual Black Friday sale! All is 50% off, through November 30!!. In terms of imperfections, I have turned to Izzie’s again, wearing her blemishes and pimples from the Imperfection pack, as well as her eyebags. the closed eyes layer is from another Glam Affair skin, Camilla, and the chapped lips are from the Top1Salon Chapped lipstick pack. Finally, here I am wearing the very simple but beautiful and versatile Trinity Black turtleneck body from Jeune by Rowne. Versatile because you can make several parts of the body invisible and as such match it with the waist of different skirts and pants to make a sleek, elegant look
I usually write posts like this “live” meaning, as I am styling and taking pictures in world. Also, I usually don’t plan these posts. I have a few basic principles: 1 skin, 1 hair colour, same colour swatch for before and after, but other than that…. it’s one big dig into my bottomless inventory! I felt I wanted to stick with the turtleneck, but none of the items that I could fit it with was calling me today, so I switched the Jeune by Rowne bodysuit for a sleeveless turtleneck top by Ison, which as you will see, I styled in full black. I also got rid of the casual scrunchie updo and picked out another Magika hair, Alexandra, which comes in 3 lengths and optional bangs. For my makeup, I got rid of my bare face blemishes, and now I am enjoying Reese in all her flawlessness, combined with the extra face shadows that Glam Affair skins come with. I wanted a fuller brow, so I went with Nuve‘s Chris 2 brows. Brows are unisex peeps!! My eyeliner is also from Nuve, the nr. 1 from her Dramatic Eyeliner set. I put on a little extra contour from Dotty’s secret, the blended nr 2, in 25% opacity, for a pretty natural effect, and my lips are from Top1Salon again, from the Kiss palette. And while all imperfections are gone from my face, a beauty mark actually enhances the character in your face, so I went with Jack Spoon‘s La Boheme beauty mark 4. Finally, I switched lashes to Anice natural lashes. less dainty than Jon’s, but still nothing too dramatic either! My glasses are from ZOOM, and my jewelry is by Kunglers
So because I blog as I go, sometimes a look changes in the process. I was looking for a certain accesoire, and came upon this fishnet shirt from She Said Destroy (SSD) and I was like.. oooh… that’ll look awesome with this top and skirt! But not as much with these glasses and the jewelry… so off they go to make place for the fishnet top! Instead, I went BIG on the belt with Diram‘s Kim belt and Mimikri‘s Chain belt! I also grabbed Diram‘s Ziva coat because without a warm jersey, things might get chilly this time of year, and I have paired it with Just Because‘s Liz skirt, which has a lovely satin finish and Baiastice‘s Theory boots.
I don’t care that you can nowadays get your pumpkin spice latte already when it’s barely September, Pumpkin season for me is between mid-October and November. One might argue from before Halloween through Thanksgiving, but me being Dutch, we don’t celebrate either. I do however love pumpkin, both the taste of oven-roasted pumpkin, drizzled with some olive oil, thyme and a bit of coarse salt and the rich deep orange hues they come in
So pumpkin became the base of my look for today, I am wearing LeLUTKA‘s Briannon head today, which I love for its youthful features and I am pairing it with Avarosa‘s Max skin. The browless version, because today’s brows are from Dazed, I am wearing their Somber eyebrows in ginger AND light brown, because combined they have a bit more definition than apart. I am also wearing Avarosa’s freckles, which came with the Max skin, and they are so lovely and soft! My eyes are from Avi-Glam, Wonder Eyes from pack no.2, and my lashes are my usual default LeLUTKA lashes. I’m also sporting a lovely little chin dimple today from Izzie’s.
My hair is Paty, from Doux and I am wearing Fashionably Dead‘s Long Baggy Cardigan while deciding what makeup to put on to get ready to leave the house.
I didn’t touch my base today, but I added some contouring from Dotty’s Secret, the blended contour 50% nr. 2 to be precise, and also the BOM eyeshadow is from Dotty’s Secret, Lane 5. On top of it, I am wearing, also by Dotty’s Secret, one of the Liners Vol 1, in Lelutka EvoX HD. For my lipstick, I went Surgarose, picking a fiery red from the Poppy palette. Clothes today are all by COCO Design. I am wearing the white top from crop top and skirt set and over that, the Teddy Fur jacket in a warm brown hue. I’m in for a good pair of jeans any day, and I love these Wide Leg Ankle jeans because they let me show of my KC Couture Dasia boots so well! In my ears today, I am wearing the light gold Monies earrings by ZOOM
