The collection is inspiring, the creators are exceptional, and the way in which you wear any of these items will have you feeling that spring is truly in the air. The LeLutka release was a fabulous show and the looks you are seeing today were actually put together for the show by Mariya Nesiote one of the Stylists for LeLutka who did an incredible job. I will show a variation of some because thats just me lol, but for the most part they are exactly as we saw them :).
The Valentina dress is elegant and stylish. The ruffle is a beautiful addition to the style of this system skirt pencil dress, but you can wear it without and have a completely different look. The belt adds that little extra with a stylish L for LeLutka to show that you know where to shop for classy creations. The earrings that are a MUST HAVE as is all of the Jewelry by Miabella Foxley for LeLutka, but seriously the Hampton Earrings are to die for. Nana Heels you should all have by now are from Enkythings and look fantastic with this dress as they pick up the same shine in the black as the dress does.
Sophie hair by Maitreya is such a wonderful transition style moving from uppydo to casual retro creatively. This style is the one that nearly brought the house down. Marleen and Whimsy both stated that they want to be buried in this Gigi Trench, and I must say that they can, but I want to live in it as much as possible lol. This is such a vintage 60’s inspired look, I love the texture and shape of the coat, and its ability to be worn as a shorter top you will see further along.
The lovely tan/cream Kitty top is so soft and a definite staple, very well paired with the fabulous Chocolate Heidi shorts. The 100%Plastic bag was given as a group gift early yesterday and is just fabulous fun, the portfolio has me giggling all the way to my own shoot.
Miabella has done something with the Reese necklace that I myself haven’t seen before, she has added shading to the prims so that it actually casts a shadow on the body, very well done and the textures in her pieces are just gorgeous, all that experience in PS has totally payed off for those that are going to be big fans of her in world creativity.
I am wearing the Chloe hair by Maitreya in this shot because the cream cap just adds to the light tones in the outfit so well, the beanie is of course texture change on click , but this cream was perfect.
Who wouldnt love Green Zebra stripe, the Zeba Skirt is just gorgeous. Worn here with the Olimpia Sweater and Carla jacket, they are styled together but you will need to take the Olimpia collar off to wear it properly, or at least edit the prims enough so it fits realisticly. The coat is cinched in at the waist with the gorgeous Michelle belt, the accessories in this Spring 2009 release are just amazing.
The hair is Messy by LeLutka and the shoes are their new foray into footwear, making them now an all rounder, the textureson the shoes are beautiful and rich, these are the Shanon heels you will see throughout the post in carious colours.
Everyone oooo’d when this dress hit the runway, this feminine floral creation is the Flora dress, the plum pink mixed with the vibrant green is stunning and because of the lovely ribon trim can be worn as a top easily, as there are different options for the layers. As I said accessories are beautiful and the bags are so incredible through the whole range, this is the Glen top handle bag, a great hand held bag thats not too small you can’t fit all you need inside of it.
The hair is the Donatella style from LeLutka decorated with the Hair Rose in plum by Essentia. Another gorgeous pendant by Miabella@ LeLutka is the Florence, a Glass pendant with a metalic inlay, its really beautiful, reminiscent of a monacle.
When this outfit hit the runway it immediately made me think of Thora, this is totally her style.. Sinner or Saint is the question or is it just a statement, why choose?. The Masha pants and Tank Top are fantastic exploring wear, fun in the sun can be shielded with the protection of the fabulous Fedora hat, the hair I modded a lot under neath it is the Peta style.
The Sack Bag is a Must Have and if you are in the group a Golden Rod one was sent out yesterday with various other fabulous items, I am so in love with not just the bags from LeLutka but the inbuilt AO’s, I actually emptied one out of the bag and added it to my other handbag AO also made up of LeLutka bag poses and walks so now I have a left and right, I am planning a tutorial on that shortly.
The Jewelry is the Drop Pendant and Earrings in Mayan, and the fun and fabulous Cuff bangle in Lime by Miabella@LeLutka, so delicate and so many beautiful colours to choose from. Korina Ballet Flats are so sperbly textured you would swear they were velvet soft.
This isthe Lotta Top, a gorgeous sculpted top with a beautiful one sided straps look. The fabric in this top is just gorgeous and bring sthe whole look together beautifully. The jeans are the Mischa jeans, cuffed bottoms giving them a very cool old school look. The Wooden Bangle 2 and Wooden Cuff with the Tate Hair all give it a hippie chic feel that is very well established with the Love Junky Logo across the leather label on the back.
Not part of the collection already styled is the Olimpia Sweater and the fabulous Mona Jeans skirt I couldnt resist. Again using that fabulous Michelle belt to cinch it all in and add a little bit of the soft tawny colouring that is finished up with the Shanon shoes.
Silver hoops by Miabella are always a girls best friend, and these are dangly ones that don’t put the hoop through the earlobe but actually just rest nicely hanging from the hook, such lovely detailed work. The hair in this pic is River 2 by Maitreya.
I adore, love, cherish, and wish to live in these pants. They are the Olimpia pants and so far I have three pairs and want all of them. These are the perfect yoga style pants, they are full flare and just so gorgeous. The top is the Mila top and again sculpted and so pretty in the tiered style.
Another fantastic casual day look, with the perfect Sunglasses which I also love and there are many colours to choose from in the store, as well as the Cuff bangle, Sack Bag and Diamond Shanon shoes, finishing off the look with the Mary Kate hair by LeLutka.
Another incredible dress and in such a stunning green is the Lea dress, now everything shown today comes in a huge array of colours, so even if you don’t like the ones shown make sure you look to see what other ones are available. The Lea dress is actually so beautiful as a top also, I was wearing the top to this one with the green Olimpia pants and the look wonderful together.
The sculpted top needed a touch of fitting for me at the breasts, but edit linked parts is your friend, or use the resizer script like I often do in a copy version of the top, so you can do minimal changes at a time. The scalloped bottom to this dress is just wonderful and it flows around you so well with movement. The Hair is Eva 2 by Maitreya, the Eva styles are must haves for sure.
There is something too fabulous about high waisted shorts or pants, in this incidence its all about the shorts. The Michelle shorts are just that kind of fabulous, in such wonderful soft pastels, but the selling point has to be not only the high waisted look, but the perfectly cure contrast colouring on the arch at the bum, alluding to definite perkyness.
A wonderful way to get the most out of the Gigi trench coat is to wear it as a cropped tied up top, and with this ensemble it is just that, whether with something like the Silky Shirt underneath or without. The hair is a Electra and the lovely jewelry by Miabella that compliments the style and the colours is the Grace Pendant and Earrings.
Another show stopper is the Simone Dress, the perfect frock for spring, the dresses texture is like spun sill and the lovely style is just reminiscent of walks along the beach and sipping Pina Coladas on a deck at your favourite seafood restaurant as the sun sets in the distance, ahhhhhhhh. The Glen Top Bag and the Shanon shoes again perfectly accompany this look, adding the beautiful Mayte hair by Maitreya to the mix.
The talented Valena Glushenko has incorporated alot of elegance into this collection with a stunning assortment of Gowns. The Maria Gown in Violet is just gorgeous, a bit of tweaking needed by me for the top and the waist sash but nothing painful, the only labor intensive part was by choice, making a copy of the top of the gown and reattaching to the spine so that I could wear the delicate and so lovely Cluster Necklace and Earrings by Miabella with it.
The stunning silhouette this gown gives is just wonderful, and as an overly appreciative member of the audience said, a Perfect Bridesmaids gown. The Piper 2 Hair by Maitreya and the White and lavender Hair Rose by Essentia finish it off so well.
The finale wouldn’t be complete without the Wedding Gown, and this one takes the cake.The Odessa Wedding Gown is INCREDIBLE, sculpted roses underneath a tulle layer, if you have seen Sex in the City this gown should have been in that movie, it is that perfect. With the gown you get the lovely Lilys and an option to have them connected to the skirt as one or seperate which is very handy indeed. Wearing the the Nahla hair with this gown and the Beautiful Silver Hair Rose by Essentia which I actually have the matching wedding boquet of lol, I am ready and waiting – dodges the shoe Mel just threw at my head :P just teasing you â™¥.
I know you thought that was it, but I couldnt finish without talking about the Skins worn. They are all the London Revolution skins that come in many tones, but I was wearing the sunkissed through out the shoot. The make up is beautiful and not too overly dramatic unless needed to be, the shading as usual is lovely and the face is just lovely with its full lips and expressive eyes.
All available at LeLutka there are 48 skins being released and many are being released in the Mens section also, I am only showing the backs of the skins in other tones today because I didnt want to change out of my Olimpia Pants in Black lol.
DEMO DEMO DEMO.
All of the poses today are from Long Awkward Pose, and some of them are the love bloggers pack which is great for minimal movement of the torso, fantastic for vendor pics.
