Puttin' on the Ritz

There was a burst of chic goodness that flowed into the fashion stream like a waterfall last weekend. My inventory overflowed and I was adrift in choices of what to wear. But I absolutely had to wear the new COCO Tuxedo that is so gorgeous I could almost hear it singing “I feel pretty, oh so pretty…” I suppose you think clothes don’t sing, but it’s SL. They can do anything. The tuxedo jacket comes in gray and black and I wore the gray for more contrast with the black feather skirt. Feathers and Tuxedos don’t go together usually, but the skirt was humming “Putting on the Ritz” and the potential for a great fashion song mash-up should never be denied. The fab boots are from Pixel Mode – where the 50L sale just eroded all my will power and flooded my inventory with PM goodness.

Under the jacket, I added Zaara’s lovely Isis blouse to tone the look down just a bit.  I could have worn it without a shirt as the jacket covers the essentials, but then I might have had to sing Freak Out.

W&Y released several model hairs. It was seeing them on the feed that breached the dam of my shopping resistance – though to be honest, that dam is easily breached. I am thrilled to see W&Y adding some reds to their hair colors since their hair is no mod. Each hair/hat combo has 4 color choices for your hair and several choices for the hat so the 100L price is a great bargain.

The earrings are from Uzuri and are big and bold and modern. The Alice skin is from Milk Motion at the Shape/Skin Expo.  A portion of the purchase goes to Susan G Komen Foundation.

    Okay…. Now just lie back on the couch, dear, and tell me again when and why they chose Andrea McArdle instead of you for Annie. (Pulling out notebook)

    Seriously, an interesting combo; not bad!
