Review: PACADI Jasha

31 10 2009

PACADI Jasha reopened this week with their new fall collection and a new build. I must admit that I’d never heard of the store before a notice announcing the Fall Collection went out to the iheartsl blogger’s group this past weekend.  I decided to check it out while I had a bit of free time and was pleasantly surprised to find both Lotta Shelman and Julia Tower there as I looked around.  They were putting a few finishing touches out for the reopening, and I really enjoyed their new space.  Things are organized into different buildings, so finding what you’re looking is fairly easy.  Lotta and Julia, co-owners of the PACADI Jasha brand and the designers behind the fantastic clothing and jewelry, were kind enough to gift me with some review copies of the things that I liked.  I’ll show you some of what I picked out.
 
The first thing I had to have with this Striped Long Sleeve shirt in blue.

I’m not sure what it is about this shirt that made me want it immediately, but I did.  Stripes aren’t something I wear very often, but I wore this shirt for four days, so I must REALLY like it.  It’s simple, casual, and well textured.  I’m a big fan of wrinkles in the “fabric,” and this shirt has that.  It went perfectly with the PACADI acid washed jeans in grey.

I added the Sunday hair from Magika in brown because I was feeling very urban casual cool.  The skin is from ::Exodi::, Shiloh (Honey) in Flower Girl.  The softer makeup went well with the light blue of this shirt.

I also added the Porn Star Hi-Tops from Urban Bomb Unit and a fun necklace from [evica] to complete the look.  I shot these photos in front of the PACADI Flagship store…the mini cooper was just too cute to resist.
 
My third “must have” item was the Miu top in Cherry.

I really love this top and again, Lotta Shelman did a great job on this piece. I even like the bow around the neck, and I’m not a bow kind of girl.  I decided to go a little vintage meets modern with the Miu top so I added the High Waisted Skirt by Maitreya, some stockings from No.9 Nylons, and the Shanti shoes in Cherry by Maitreya Gold.

The hair is again from Magika, Lust in Blonde A because I wanted something sleek and sexy.  The skin is from ::Exodi:: – Shiloh (Honey) in Nosferatu.  The jewelry I’m wearing was created by Julia Tower and is from the Jasha half of PACADI Jasha.  I’m wearing the Ethnic Nature Set in Black here, which you can get as an opening gift in the store.

The bracelet on my right arm is the Aceax Bracelet and was a gift from Julia.  I’m not sure it’s out just yet, but watch for it.  It was definitely one of the things that caught my eye in the Style Book, and I was in the process of searching the store for it when Julia dropped it on me.  It must be fate.

PACADI also does lingerie, and you know I had to grab some of that as well.  I’m wearing the Vittoria Bra #004,which is the red and black version.  It comes in several color options, as do all of the lingerie sets.

Again, this set has that vintage meets modern feel.  I really like the texture and the cut on this.  It’s very flattering.  It also comes with an optional babydoll prim attacthment for versatility.  For this, I kept it simple and stayed with the Lust hair by Magika, but switched to a darker brown shade.

PACADI Jasha has clothing, jewelry, handbags, skins, eyes, and hair…it can be a one stop shop for any look you want to create.  From casual to couture, they have a bit of everything and from what I seen, it’s all very well done.  Prices are extremely affordable, too, which is always a plus. They have a Style Book of the fall collection available online if you’d like to take a look:  http://issuu.com/glanceinternationalagency/docs/pacadi_jashafall09collection.
 
PACADI Jasha was a fun shopping find.  I can’t wait to see what they come out with in the future.
