Sometimes I put together an outfit that just appeals to my sense of fun and whimsy more than most and I end up wearing it for days, putting it back on after shooting another outfit, just because I love it so. That’s what happened with this outfit, perhaps because of the gloves more than anything…but I did fall for the look and had to treat it to a little more fun with the photo shoot, so I used the Mannequins from Lost Angel – just because they are too adorable for words.
Covering the basics, let’s start where I began styling the outfit – the Salopette skirt from Untone Quilt. It’s lucky it has suspenders because SL was being a total pain and not rezzing any of my tops. I decided finally to go topless for a bit while I chose shoes. I quickly chose Maitreya’s Soho boot, though in a different color, resolving to pop over to see if there was a color that would work better once I could get a shirt on. That led me to thinking maybe a scarf so I trawled my accessories folder and noticed the Nif Nif gloves from LeeZu. Once I put them on, I tossed out the print shirt idea and resolved on the Icing Puma Jie shirt, if it would ever rez. Meanwhile I tossed on one of Zaara’s coverall scarves and headed to Maitreya where I found the Soho Luxe Grunge which were the exact color I wanted. When I got back to the blog headquarters (sounds so much more upscale than my patch of ocean floor, doesn’t it?) I took of the scarf and magically while TP’ing into the busy, busy Maitreya store and back, my shirt finally rezzed. I was really happy with the look and just needed to find skin and hair as playful as the outfit.
I wanted bold and fun, so I went to Curio’s folder and chose the lovely Allium makeup from the June release. The hair was a favorite of mine from Hair Fair – a blunt cut bob from Fashionably Dead. I added the Aqua set from si*na museum – a find at Albero’s Accessories Fair last month and voila. Normally outfits come together a little more easily than this — but when SL quits rezzing I want to rip my hair out. Lucky for me, it’s detachable so I can.
