So I went shopping yesterday, exploring wonderful little shopping sims such as Olni Estates, Japan Canvas, Midnight Requiem and Retrology. Hard-working fashionista on the prowl – that was me, looking for new stores and new outfits all in the service of fashion and fun. And as I hopped along the grid, this outfit came into shape, starting with the skirt and the cotton top, both from MNK.
Waking up stiff and cold, huddled in the back seat of a rusted out Nash Metro that I pulled over somewhere off the highway outside Las Vegas, I stretched and squinted past my knees wincing at the light bouncing off the white sands of the desert plains. I grabbed my bottle of whiskey to quench my dry mouth and saw I had emptied it in the night and unfortunately for my head, I didn’t spill a drop. A Soweto beat booming in my head from the mix of whiskey, chips and salsa and whatever else I could grab at the Arcade, I crawled out of the car and decided to end this little experiment in Gonzo writing by rezzing the huge box of promotional items from Fear & Clothing – the best named store in Second Life. The first thing I tried on was this Sharkskin Red Striped jacket that I completely fell in love with.
When I saw these moccasins at Sixty-Nine I was immediately reminded of my childhood and the wondrous Minnetonka Moccasins that were ubiquitous at every Minnesota tourist attraction in the state. I coveted a pair so much, but my parents would never spring for something so impractical and so I never had a pair of moccasins. Until yesterday when I stopped at Sixty-Nine and saw these and bought my first moccasins ever. They are every bit as comfortable as I imagined. I also immediately googled Minnetonka and lo, they are still making moccasins and I can get a pair like these for $75 so I just might be getting myself moccasins for a Christmas present in real life too. Though my inner practical self says no.
My old boyfriend Schrottvogel Wei has earned a good reputation for his swimsuits, but his main focus has been his custom surfboards. However, he is expanding his bikini line, launching his new store VOGEL with 59 new bikinis. Why 59? It just happened that way. Anyway, Vogel means bird, hence the adorable logo on the derriere and in the post title.
