One of my favorite things about NYU is that they usually release as separates and the lovely camisole and lace skirt released at faMESHed are true to form. I love separates because it’s fun to mix and match. The pieces come with multiple colors selected by HUD.
I picked up this gorgeous jacket at Vintage and Cool – a vintage clothing fair held last year. I loved the beautiful lace and leather jacket and the lovely details, but had not found the opportunity to wear it – but when I put together this outfit focusing on some of the wonderful finds at My Slink Obsession, I remembered it and pulled it out of the closet. The lovely nail polish is from Stellar at My Slink Obsession.
The outfit really begins with the Somnia Cranial Trim top which was released today at My Slink Obsession. As with everything made by Sanura Snowplow, the quality is exquisite. The hand drawn textures in the bodice are beautiful and, by the way, are the reason I chose the jacket. The last picture in this post has a close up that lets you see how well the straps on the shoulders are done. That is where you can see the difference between the good and the excellent. Somnia is excellent. The only reason I do not wear it more often is she works with a much softer color palette than what I gravitate towards – for me, I generally go for prints and strong, bright, saturated colors. But coral? Well, coral is one of my favorite colors and is one of the universal colors that look good with every skin type.
I shot the pictures outside ISON. I love this sim so much.
I am loving this side wrap dress from Ison. It comes in several summer colors as well as a few prints. I opted for this lovely blue, one of my favorite colors as I believe you can tell looking at the cabin and furnishings.
Zanze has a large collection of fabulous outfits for Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week. My favorite is this Strathmere skirt and top. I love the loose, breezy easiness and the bold, bright colors.
I stopped by The Trace Too for the photos It’s a lovely beach and the sky was gorgeous.
The bright yellow linen pants from Faster Pussycat and the loose white button-down shirt from erratic were a simple, but colorful outfit that hopefully is not lost in the colorful profusion of prints at Blossom the texture explosion at LEA22.
The theme for this month at Genre is Rockabilly and Fission’s Paula dress is pure Rockabilly. It comes in black, pink, blue and red and of course, I had to go with Rockabilly Red.
My senior year I was chosen as the class nonconformist. That made sense as I was politically active and that’s never the conformist way to be. I was also the only person to graduate without taking biology. I had fought the school requirement all the way to the state high school accreditation board – arguing I merely had to take any science of my choice and did not have to take a biology class. Instead I took physics. I really did not want to dissect anything. A couple classmates, a couple that would often disappear into closets for a kiss or two or three, were named the Sly Lurkers of the Underbrush. That cracked me up. I had never heard the phrase before or since, but it fit them somehow. I am not quite lurking in the underbrush at Eclectica, but I am lurking.
Of course, you can’t really lurk without being noticed when your dress is this chic and sporty, can you? The Filton dress from Hucci for Collabor88 has all sorts of sporty details such as the stripe on the sleeve and the inset on the skirt. It’s striking, modernist and minimalist with a huge helping of chic.
Autumn has been painting its palette all across Second Life for the past month. I stopped by Izzie’s because it is always one of the most beautiful seasonal sims and sure enough, Izzie’s portrait of autumn is beautiful. In fact, it’s so lovely, I decided to use a paint filter on one of my snaps to turn it into a painting. If you stop by Izzie’s, don’t touch the kitty, she is shy.
The move is complete, the bags and boxes unpacked and I have settled into a chair to take a last look before crawling into bed.
The nice thing about moving in Second Life is that one does not have to look the part. I am wearing a mini-dress from 1992 that is the ne plus ultra of hot, sexy modernity. It’s revealing, edgy and definitely “designed” but not at all over-designed. It comes in a solid beige, a solid black or this print – and all can be found at The Dressing Room.
Well, I decided to go for it and move into the Brooklyn Carriage House from Trompe L’oeil. It’s smaller than the big brownstone I was living in and requires a lot less furniture, but I ended up buying some furniture anyway, because that’s what happens when you move. You need new things. Among the new things are this lovely vanity that’s also from Trompe L’oeil and a big blue velvet bed from there as well.
I added this glorious lounge/daybed from Mudhoney that can be found at this month’s Collabor88. The golden key embellishment at the bottom and the gorgeous tassels place it firmly within the Odyssey inspiration and that blue is a rich as the Aegean Sea.
