I have been thinking about getting a nice men’s suit for some time, so Analu’s Armoire Diversity Challenge helped me take the plunge. I love the look – it makes me think of Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo and Lauren Bacall – the many glorious actresses who showed how great women can look. They may have dressed like men, but it only accentuated their femininity.
I have bought men’s clothes before and generally have no difficulty though sometimes it does take some time to reduce the prims enough to fit. To make it easier on myself, I looked for a suit that didn’t rely on a lot of prims. The Black Wool Suit from Blaze was primarily systemwear and so an easy outfit to fit.
I stuck with women’s shoes – the wonderful Bax Coen black patent ankle boots. I wanted the pointy toe and the spike heels.
The hat is Apollon and the hair is MMS and I have worn them together before. The first time, I made a copy and put it in the hat folder before putting it on to edit. That way, I would keep the hat and hair together for no mess dressing this time round.
