I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

SVS: What's in for 2012?
a spirited, reddish orange.
"Provocative Tangerine Tango, an enticing juicy orange, is a vivacious and appealing refresher to enliven anyone's outlook this spring." - Pantone
MIXING VINTAGE W/ MODERN
"The year marks the true start of a new decade, and yet 2012′s fashion trends are all about REVIVAL. True, there is a unique undertone of a modernist style appearing, but take some of the most iconic styles of the 20th century, infuse them with quality, and you’ll find the basis for the dominant styles of 2012." - FASHIONISING
MODERN GLADSTONE BAG
"The Gladstone bag, or doctor's bag, was once a workingman’s asset - but today has become a woman’s arm-luxury. Functional, elegant, and back in our sights for 2012, the Gladstone bag is an accessory worth investing in." - FASHIONISING
"The very latest crop of exotic skin handbags come in a rainbow of hues. Bottega Veneta, Loewe and Roberto Cavalli cater for those looking for classic investment pieces - ladylike totes and satchels in block colour neutrals, that will remain wardrobe favorites for seasons to come." - VOGUE UK
AN ARRAY OF REDS
"Lipstick’s most iconic color was reinvented this season, proving that there are endless ways to wear a dramatic red. With inspirations that ranged from pop art expressionisms at Jason Wu to art deco experimentation at Rick Owens to Betty Draper-style elegance at Dior, it’s a great time to go for rouge."
MODERN CAT EYES
"The familiar flick of liner returned to the outer corners of eyes but this time fashioned with inventive, even playful, variations (who says that up-tick has to be tapered? Why not apply two layers of liner instead of one?)."
Both striking and feminine at the same time, the look of bold brows dominated the runways, recalling sixties-era icons like Liz Taylor. The best examples are darkened with pigment, brushed up, and shaped with a dramatic, willful arch." - Harper's BAZAAR
"Spring runways were more colorful than the crowd at a Lady Gaga concert. Bold, solid-color pieces—like a cardi and skirt, wrap dress or demure one-piece suit—make simple dressing look glam. Our style tip: Stick to three colors max to avoid the girly, Rainbow Brite look." - GLAMOUR
"The no-fail trend when it comes to looking all glammed up for any occasion, high shine definitely puts the spotlight on you!" - STYLE Bible
CRAZY FOR PAISLEY
"THE Indian heritage print of swirling curling shapes finds new style currency this season." - VOGUE UK
PALE AND INTERESTING
"Steer clear of sickly-sweet shades and opt for icy alternatives, which offer a subtler pastel palette. " - VOGUE UK
TRACK AND FIELD
"With the London 2012 Olympics looming, there is a spirit of athleticism in the air and fashion is on a fitness streak." - VOGUE UK
"Seductive, sensual and far too stylish to keep in the bedroom, pyjamas present an alluring new eveningwear option for spring." - VOGUE UK
"A cross between the mini and the maxi, this hybrid shows just the right amount of leg and gives way to that fresh summer breeze!" - STYLE Bible
"Stripes somehow call to mind ideas of sailing and being by the sea. With visions of being beach bound for the summer months, striped maxi dresses and even skirts seem to make the perfect wardrobe."
