Rising Expectations

It’s been a while since I have blogged Phoenix Rising – and that’s unfortunate because the clothes are even more distinctive and fun. Take this lovely outfit called Motive, is there anything more fun that that lovely plaid corset with the wide sash and belt?

It even includes the lovely stockings with a sexy seamed leg. The shoes are the oh-so-chic Claire shoes from Baiastice. I just love their shape with the pointed toes, the sleek styling and the lovely pleated embellishment. My only wish is that the soles were black just because unlike real life, when you see the soles of shoes in SL, you sometimes don’t realize it’s the sole and think it’s the foot. I think I have zoomed in on these shoes a few more than too many times to make sure they fit.  They are perfectly made and perfectly fit and in real life when you see the sole of a shoe, it never occurs to you that it could be the foot.

I am not wearing the blouse that came with this even though it is adorable with a lovely fabric and wonderful puffed sleeves. It’s a short top that leaves a bit of bare belly and you all know me, I just don’t care for that look. The outfit does include a camisole undershirt to cover up, but I decided I would just rather wear one white shirt. Besides, this really highlights how this outfit is made up of effective separates. I can wear each individual piece on its own because the layers are made to give me that option.

My jewelry choices included earrings from Zaara Couture and this adorable seasonal necklace from SugarCube. I love how it interacts with the corset. It’s fun, lively and bright.

The hair is Dylan from Tiny Bird – another lovely, whimsical style from someone who is fast becoming a favorite hair stylist for me. The skin is a Vanity Universe Skin Fair highlight – a skin from Atomic Bambi that is just lovely and that lush red lipstick is perfect for this outfit.
