Oh, this little jacket from Hilarious is adorable. It has such an insouciant, childlike feeling of whimsy in its design and execution that I dare you to wear it and not feel happy. And the happiness factor can be maximized if you add those fun plaid wool pants from Hilarious as well. Kesseret Steeplechase definitely is the go-to-woman for hand-drawn wool textures that will keep you cuddly cozy.
I thought about calling this “Peach Me, I’m Dreaming” but realized that would be a new low in word play and demurred. Instead, I thought I might focus on how wonderful it is to have tintable clothing items that enable mixing and matching with a broader number of choices. Now, when I saw the Morcade dress at French Touch last week, I fell in love. It’s just beautifully made and for 1L, it’s the steal of the grid. Gidge blogged it at FreeStyle along with a host of 1L dresses from there. Soon after we were at the fishing hole on Zion and there was a gorgeous woman wearing that dress which lead to a three way conversation about way to wear the top without the skirt. She put on a grey wool pair of pants and looked luscious.

Raise your hands if you have at least one outfit from Nyte’N’Day? Wow, almost everyone. That’s kind of what I thought. Me, too. I have several outfits from there including the very first purchase I made in Second Life, the Nyte’N’Day Rainment skirt in black. Dove Swanson of Long Awkward Pose (whose poses I am using in this post) wondered yesterday if its possible that because so many of us identify Nyte’N’Day with our noobish era, that we fail to recognize how current and good the designs are. I think there’s some truth to that.
But that’s cutting us off from some great design because Nyte Caligari has not been just sitting there making the same old thing. Her clothes have evolved and her skills have advanced and her clothes are as exciting as anyone. Take this jacket for example – beautifully made, chic and smart as she linked the collar and belt so that they only take one attachment point. Sure you have to edit the separately to fit your particular torso length – but we all can do that. Continue reading
