Fueled by Fashion

Sometimes you see something on a wall at a store and you just have to have it. That was me when I saw this Silk Wings top from Baiastice. I love silk, I love gold, I love complicated collars and ties and if they aren’t squared off like a linebacker, I even love a constructed shoulder.  This is a home run on all counts. The night before I was in Uruzi – where you will find some of the best ethnic jewelry in Second Life, when I glanced at the clothing and saw some harem pants that actually looked good and the same thing happened. So, of course, they belong together.

You won’t seem me in capris or gauchos or other mid-length pants very often as they are seldom flattering to your shape. However, these, by ending a bit higher than most, make the calves look more shapely than most and don’t fall prey to the stumpy look of most mid-length pants. They were made by someone who understands the geometry of shapeliness and so are just enough shorter than most to look great.  I added the oh-so-beautiful Shanti sandals from Maitreya.

The hair is the incoomparable Dakota from Cake – a style to which my only question is “where have you been all my life?” The earrings are from Zaara whose jewelry collection is setting a gold standard for SL jewelers.

The makeup is Pink Fuel – and it’s delightfully fresh and simple. The eyes are from PXL Creations and if I didn’t already adore Hart Larsson, these eyes would make me. I am in love with this color.

    I love the way that top drapes about the arms; it’s delightful.

    As to the question of Capris, though, doesn’t it really depend on the particular person? Audrey Hepburn, for instance, made Capri pants insanely popular, and knew just what to do to make them work. I offer in evidence this article from my own blog, back in May, with a shot of Audrey toward the middle. I have no problem with Capris myself — although I’ll admit, flats like Audrey wore are probably better than heels. It all depends….
