Get Your Motor Running

Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way

Okay, so the lyrics of Born to Be Wild should not be what I think of when wearing a vintage pencil skirt, sweater or a houndtooth trench coat, but guess what – they are.

But seriously, this clothing only sounds staid and sober. It looks hot and it is born to be wild.

The sweater and skirt are from Ingenue, part of her line of vintage wardrobe staples. The sweater comes on all layers and has cowl and shoulder prims. I did have to switch the cowl attachment point from spine to chest to accomodate the coat. The skirt is a system skirt with a highwaist provided on the shirt and jacket layers and glitch pants on all layers. This gives you all the flexibility you need to wear it however you need. I paired it with the Prestige boots from Bax Coen which give it the Born to Be Wild Edge.

The coat is the meticulously made by Shiryu Musashi of Musashi-Do. He’s a brave fellow tackling Houndstooth. I think just trying to line up the patters would give me a migraine. There are sleeve prims and a collar prim, but most strikingly, there are two options for the coat/belt prim. There’s a relative flat skirt which is what I am wearing – perfect for my pencil skirt. But, thinking more deeply about clothing that the usual creator, there is a second, fuller, wider coat prim to wear with fuller skirts such as artilleri’s circle skirt.  Now that is taking it to the next level.How often do coat designers think through how their coat will work with the dress underneath?

Here’s a closer look at the collar and the sweater collar together. I did have to shrink the sweater collar just a bit to fit inside the coat collar. This gives you a good look at the detail work so you can really appreciate how well made this is.

Those fun earring are from Uzuri – honestly I keep wanting to type Uriza and struggle to remember the name, but it’s a name worth remembering for the wonderful Africa-inspired jewelry they make. The hair is by Tiny Bird and named in honor of everyone’s favorite glampire. Yes, it’s the Winter hair from Tiny Bird. Isn’t it hot? Hot enough to melt the ice and snow, that’s for sure.

The makeup is the lusciously elegant and born to be wild July from PXL Creations.

    You look terrific in houndstooth, beautiful girl. And even better than I do in that hair – DAMNIT!
