I am going to see Cocorosie in a couple of weeks here in LA and as the date draws near I find myself wanting to blog extravagant outfits. I found such an outfit at House Of Rage. I’m all about the sparklies and feathers…which is strange because my avatar is not a girly girl. She is feminine though, I just tend to love dark colors.
I am going to attempt this again this year…. this time I am going to keep it simple. Enjoy the pics – Style notes to follow –
Style notes after the cut
I met Alicia Chenaux on Plurk, though I had read her blog for a long time before that. I should say blogs since she has a fun journaling blog where she chronicles her Second Life adventures as well as her fashion blog. I first began paying attention to her blog when she began her 365 Project which was such a huge commitment. I don’t know if I would commit to blog for a full year even after blogging for four years. For me, it’s so much easier to do something than to say I will do something, because then I really have to. I admire people who have the will to make that kind of commitment up front. I also admire the kind of openness and vulnerability that journaling blogs require. It, too, requires a commitment beyond what I would do.
I was looking forward to seeing Alicia’s outfit because she’s a former model and I knew that work history would translate into an impeccable outfit that was perfectly fitted. And I was right from every Elikatira hair on her head to the GField shoes on her feet, everything is perfectly fitted. Her outfit seemed perfect for sightseeing and wandering the streets in the fashionable city of Venice which you can find on the Prada sim. I could see her modeling skills at work as she positioned herself on the dock by the gondolas while I was flailing around in the river after falling off the dock a few times. In fact, I had to run inside one of the stores and dry off while she patiently waited.
Heidi Volare may be familiar to blog readers as the author of The Fashionable Heart, but she graces us today as Guest Stylist. She has an easy, casual style that ranges from jeans and t-shirt to super-sexy club dresses, or as she referred to it, “the hoochie.” I don’t know, myself, I think she looks a bit too elegant for hoochie. She’s the perfect femme fatale.
Everybody knows that femme fatales haunt moody, eccentric and atmospheric nightclubs, so we went to Flashman’s, where Art Deco meets idiosyncrasy and one can imagine a thousand stories. I can imagine the “Lost Generation” idling here while arguing the finer points of a sentence or Weimar Republic spies passing maps or world-class thieves planning their next caper around the hookah.
Mahogany is not usually a color you think of when it comes to your clothing. But this week I managed to find something I already had in my closet… well TWO somethings.. my hair and top!
When I saw the next color I needed to blog was jade, I did a quick search on the MarketPlace and this sexy dress is the first thing that grabbed my attention. It doesn’t hurt that its from a shop that I shop at .. a LOT…. ZAARA!
Doesn’t it make ya just shiver? All that sexiness? Keep reading…..
