In my quest to find mixable mesh, I have found a few allies. Two of them, Eboni Khan of Hucci and Drinkenstein Sorbet of The Sea Hole, are featured in today’s post. What makes them an ally? Producing tops and skirts as separates so I can experiment with them in different looks beside the singular one they envision. This gives me the movement and texture depth and resolution of mesh and the flexibility and creativity in styling of system clothing – the best of both worlds.
I started with the Shogun mesh skirt from The Sea Hole – available at Truth District. It comes in six colors and is such a feminine design with its soft spring pastels. I love everything about it. It comes with a coordinating top that is adorable, but I have my reputation as a pixel prude to maintain. Luckily for me, though, I saw a great top, also from The Sea Hole at Collabor88 yesterday. It came with a coordinating skirt, but I liked the idea of wearing it with this skirt and sure enough. It works beautifully and the colors coordinate so well.
Eboni Khan released a pastel rainbow of skirts, tops and sweaters at Collabor88 and I picked up a few. I was most excited by the sweater because I like layering and wanted to find a good mesh sweater. This is a win in every department. One of my peeves with mesh clothing is that too often, creators don’t texture the inside thinking no one sees it, well we all know that’s not true. It’s one thing if they paint it all black so it looks in shadow. That’s believable, but more than I like to admit, the inside is often alpha and that’s just weird. It’s like they have Harry’s cloak of invisibility tucked inside. But look at this sweater, not only is it textured inside, but it even has a clothing label. How cute is that!
I tossed on the elegant Delphines pumps from Shiny Things. One of the comments on this Flickr picture said thanks for reminding her of Shiny Things and I had to laugh because I had forgot about Shiny Things myself. I tried about about ten pairs of shoes trying to get one that looked right and then scrolling up and down trying to think who to try next, I noticed the Shiny Things folder and thought how long it’s been and decided to peek and found a winner on my first try.
I wanted feminine jewelry, so my first thought was Undefined Lilies. Her work has a sweet tender quality that I thought would be a perfect complement to the outfit. I aadded this curly hair style from Dura, tinted to give it a bit of red. I generally add a light coral tint on top of the sienna to get this color.
Everything was shot at the exquisite Neva River using their own region windlight settings.
