Ayer conocí un cielo sin sol
y un hombre sin suelo
Un santo en prisión
y una canción triste sin dueño
Y conocí tus ojos negros
Y ahora sí que no
puedo vivir sin ellos yo
For some reason I always associate Arabian themes with Shakira’s song “Ojos Asi”. There is just something that draws me into the allure of the Arabic culture but with an association of Latina Heritage. Over the years the Arabic culture has flourished with many beautiful textiles and ceramics. The most famous items that are still sold to this day are Persian Rugs. Known for their beauty and elegance these rugs are a little bit costly but worth every penny.
So why I am going on and on about Arabic items. I have a point really 😛 Genre’s theme for this round is “Arabian”. I loved the setup of the event it made rezzing a little easier for me. I wanted to find something to go with my new AZE nose piercing and earring set and there were a variety of choices. I chose and outfit from Los Encantades because of the beauty of it in the ad and in a poster that was on display in the tent.
I also found myself buying a lovely new sitting room set that I had planned to decorate with tea but then I decided me dancing on the center table was far more entertaining. Alas, there is never a guy around to pose with me when I need one. But I can always depend on my little son to be there for me. He came out his room dressed as a little prince. Please do ignore his dirty face, I bribed him with chocolate so that he can sit still long enough for the photos.
So once again Phire dragged my bum to go shopping at the Genre event. She is kinda bossy but I like that about her. I already knew what I wanted to get before we got there, the “Cotton Candy” dress by Draconic Kiss. While I was there I bumped in to my beautiful friend Airedine, of Adore & Abhor, and squeed at the purple Lolita dress she had out and I bought it also. Since Phire decided to wear Airedine’s dress for the post I chose Draconic’s. What I love about Draconic’s dress is the unique mesh work and the beautiful illustrations on the skirt. Lovely little cotton candy drawings. The dress was extremely affordable and you can wear several color options, that are changeable via a hud.
I opted to wear the mint version. The socks are available separately but they come with underwear that can be worn under the skirt as a pants layer. For the Lolita who would like to protect their image. I am wearing flats by lassitude & ennui, I went super crazy on her gacha and I got all zeee colors. These are my go-to flats to wear with Lolita Dresses. I am also wearing a couple items available at Genre. The hair is by Helena Stringer, I loved the little candy pieces in the hair and the bi-color option, there are several hair options to choose from but the teal and pink was my favorite. I am also wearing Doll Eyes by Voshie Paine, they are absolutely stunning. I fell in love with the blue eyes as soon as I saw them.
I know Phire likes to say I’m lazy, and well yeah that’s the truth. I take pictures and just let it sit in my flickr until I feel like blogging it. Which is not necessarily a great thing if you are a blogger. So I’m trying to be more proactive. Here we are getting all jiggy with ourselves. She tried to grab my bum bum but I told her that was only reserved for Humpday for the surprise buttsecks.
Here is where I told her she was a “Ero Lolita”, see she is claiming I called her a hussy. But alas this woman knows nothing about lolita fashion and I had to edumacate her. The shoes made her a “Ero Lolita” and she got all flustered and blogged that I called her a hussy. I’m not going to define what a Ero Lolita is because if you don’t know then you really don’t know much about Lolita Fashion 😛
So apparently when we were in this pose something screwy happened with my avatar and my head turned all the way around like in Exorcist LOL and well if there was photographic proof I would show you. So I recommend you check out the Genre Event, the theme changes monthly so you never know what items you can snag. This month’s theme is “Lolita” and there are a ton of great items. We just highlighted a few so go and check it out HERE.
