So, this is not one outfit, but pieces from two, or three if you count my shoes, outfits that I put together. The Nisha blouse is paired with a solid black flirty flip skirt and the Kenia pencil skirt is paired with an elegant halter top. I was immediately drawn to the pencil skirt. I always am, it is one of my favorite forms in fashion. However, as much as I liked the halter, I struggled to get it to work with the alpha cuts on my mesh bodies. I noticed the blouse and thought that the two prints would work well together and produce a more exciting, bolder look than each print alone with a solid item. Luckily for all of us, DE.Boutique releases their items as separate pieces, even though they are in one outfit. This gives us the freedom to do our own thing.
I will confess I am a little in love with Deborah Vos and DE. Boutique even though I have never met her or even sent or received an IM from her. It is just that I liked this outfit (there’s a bit of a story there) so well, I checked out her Marketplace and found so many things I want, with that combination of sophisticated and classic style and bold, modern sensibility that is completely in tune with my aesthetic. DE.Boutique is completely new to me, a discovery at this month’s showcase event The Instruments that runs through October 6th. They have a new sim, so delete your old landmarks and Teleport to The Instruments‘ brand new home.
Here’s the look with DE. Boutique from top to toe, the blouse, skirt and shoes. I am at Failure to Thrive and beautiful and moody installation at Linden Endowment for the Arts.
With the neckline and buttons, I didn’t want a necklace to fight with the print over who would get the attention. Instead I opted for this bold ring from Paper Couture and two bold bracelets. The mani/pedi is from Tashi, also at The Instruments and completely in the spirit of the Road to Ethnic theme this month.
The different sets from DE.Boutique each have different colors of the fabulous fringed booties.
My hair is from D!va, out at Collabor88 and my skin is brand new from Glam Affair, in a gacha at Shiny Shabby.
