Judging by the community's reaction to the new Gothic Garden collection from Delirious Squid this week, it is clear the brand remains one of the most popular brands amongst Avakins. Both genders received many items in the all-black collection, with a selection of ruffled, laced-up and leather styles to choose from. It was impossible to go anywhere around Avakin Life this week without seeing someone wearing an item from this popular collection.

The brand is number in the U.S and Canada for cool casual clothing for teenage girls and we received many items and outfits based on the latest trends.

Needle and Thread (Embroidery) Review by Elsamara Sapphire Levin

Hi everyone, this is Elsamara. Today I wanted to share with you the embroidered outfits from Foal. I love doing embroderiery in my spare time.

Here's a little background on embroidery. It is the handcraft of decorating Fabric using different colored threads and yarns.

The art of embroderiery is worldwide and has been around since 300 AD. It can be done by hand or machine. It is a form of artwork.

Did you know embroderiery was a skill marking a girl's path into womanhood as well as conveying a rank and social stand?

In this photo I am wearing --

Pants: Foal Needle and Thread Turn Up Jeans

They have red white flowers...high on the right thigh and midway to knee on the left thigh that wraps around to the back of the leg. Only 499 in coins

Top: The top is by Foal and is white with a black beaded choker. Comes to upper waist revealing your tummy. It's 499 in coins.

Undergarment: I'm wearing the Secrets Rachel Mesh Bodysuit to give it a little punk style to it. It's 499 in coins.

Shoes: Foal Suede Scrappy Ankle Boots -Red

I'm also holding a Foal embroidered leather clutch for 349 in coins.

It's us such a cute style and will catch everyone's attention.

The guys also had some cool embroderiery clothes -

Pants: Foal Embroidered Peacock Jeans. It is beautifully designed with pctures of embroidered Peacocks all on the front. 499 in coins

Top: The top is by Foal and is white with a big red rose on the left shoulder with long sleeves. It's 249 in coins.

Shoes: He is wearing the Foal Embroidered Rose's sneakers. They are 499 in coins.

V.O.A

This week they have yet again come up with another three brand new collections for us to try ourselves.

Avakin Life Apartment Design

A big part of Avakin Life is owning your own apartment and customising it to suit your taste or perhaps for that special occasion/event. With so many apartments now available to buy or win, it's sometimes difficult to keep up with what's new and what items are inclusive to collect.

Luckily for us, Brandy Burry's brilliant Avakin Life Apartment Design Facebook/Instagram pages are a great source of information on all the latest apartment releases and provides some great ideas, hints, tips and examples on how to decorate each apartment to get us started. The page also boasts some beautiful photography.

This week we get Lockwood's run down on the new Cypress Lane Surburban House apartment featured on the page, Brandy provides us with useful guides for inclusive items available for some of the newer apartments and she shows us some of her useful ideas, hints and tips for the Soho Luxury Pad apartment.
