“This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one. There were still plenty left running to keep the air over Detroit filled with that choking industrial aptitude, but you were never far from a hollowed-out factory, massive steel tubes on the roofs pointing up toward the sky with nothing left inside but dust and cobwebs. These giant pillars of concrete and metal now jutted high like extended index fingers from broken and casted hands, pointing toward something they would never touch.”
― Michael A. Ferro, TITLE 13: A Novel
The Arcade closes at midnight Saturday and if you let that happen without picking up the fabulous industrial pieces from NOMAD, you will miss out. The gacha has the delicious name of My Cozy Little Industrial Facility that cracks me up in the best possible way.
While I love the gacha sets and have that completionist compulsion that busts my budget, but when styling an outfit, I always resist using the set. Part of it is many others will wear the set. I want to try it differently so often try to use one item from one set and another from a different set.
So the Fran jacket from Parker is everything you want from SL, well-made, iconic, and with a bit of an edge. I added an applier-based top from Nylon Outfitters that she released at Collabor88 last year, so it’s in her store now. The pants are from NYU for FaMESHed.
The shoes are from OSMIA and can be found at The Arcade. That mani-pedi comes from FLAIR.
My necklace and earrings are from EarthStones and come in three metals and nine stones.
The INK hair (at The Arcade) is technically for men but I love it. I used the hairbase applier from Lelutka. The skin is Glam Affair’s Eryn released at UBER.
