Nyu to You and to Me

NYU to You

Nyu is a brand new store in Second Life featuring classic ready to wear separates from NyuNyu Kimono in beautifully textured mesh. I love the elegant minimalism of her clothing that focuses on quality and clean aesthetics. You can hide lots of mistakes with embellishments, but not with these simple classics. The Vintage Blouse is from her shop while the skirt is one you have seen a few times before – the Westbury mini from Mon Tissu. I fatpacked the Westbury mini because it’s one that will stand the test of time.

NyuNyu also made a stunning coat that I am in love with. It comes in 4 colors and it was so hard to choose just one, though I settled for this one because I loved how its color worked with the blouse and I thought they would work beautifully together – which comes to one of my quibbles, not with the store, but with the properties of mesh overall.

I love to layer and I want to layer and I will continue to layer. I understand some of the complexities of mesh and tried wearing the blouse in small with the jacket in large, but no joy. It’s so close to working, but not quite and I was so disappointed. The blouse does not come through the jacket because NyuNyu is a bad designer, but because that’s how mesh works, you can’t put a layer OVER another like you can put sweater over a top over an underwear layer. Of course, sculpts work the same way, but with sculpts you can take the sleeves sculpts off while you wear the jacket and put them on when you take the jacket off. Sure, she could have made a skinny sleeve, but I don’t want her making a skinnier sleeve, because I love the sleeve. I don’t have an answer, but I wish there were one.

So, without the jacket, I still have this gorgeous blouse and skirt that I love. I added the Alexa wedges from Maitreya because I was going all out on the mesh factor.

And that beautiful jacket from NYU does work wonderfully layering with other clothing such as this Audrey dress from Maitreya.

My jewelry came from Sigma and Mandala, the hair is from Exile and the skin is Estelle from Lelutka. I haven’t worn it in awhile and I can’t think why, it’s gorgeous.

    How useful do you think it would be to make sleeves separate pieces from the rest of the mesh? If a blouse (or pretty much anything, really) were created and weighted as one mesh, and then the vertex groups for the sleeves separated out at the end, it should look exactly the same as if it were one mesh. I guess the disadvantage would be more pieces — it could get confusing.

    If it really looked as one piece and didn’t show the break like sculpts, that would be wonderful. I don’t know enough about it to know if that would work. It would bring back the ability to mix and match.
