Merry Christmas Alicia Chenaux

I met Alicia Chenaux on Plurk, though I had read her blog for a long time before that. I should say blogs since she has a fun journaling blog where she chronicles her Second Life adventures as well as her fashion blog. I first began paying attention to her blog when she began her 365 Project which was such a huge commitment. I don’t know if I would commit to blog for a full year even after blogging for four years. For me, it’s so much easier to do something than to say I will do something, because then I really have to. I admire people who have the will to make that kind of commitment up front. I also admire the kind of openness and vulnerability that journaling blogs require. It, too, requires a commitment beyond what I would do.

I was looking forward to seeing Alicia’s outfit because she’s a former model and I knew that work history would translate into an impeccable outfit that was perfectly fitted. And I was right from every Elikatira hair on her head to the GField shoes on her feet, everything is perfectly fitted. Her outfit seemed perfect for sightseeing and wandering the streets in the fashionable city of Venice which you can find on the Prada sim. I could see her modeling skills at work as she positioned herself on the dock by the gondolas while I was flailing around in the river after falling off the dock a few times. In fact, I had to run inside one of the stores and dry off while she patiently waited.

I love her handbag! It’s from LaGyo and is bold and demands attention. It also really brings the entire outfit together. Red, white and blue can be a tough combination to style as they can run the risk of looking kitschy-rah-rah with their flag colors. By using a vanilla white instead, LaGyo’s bag avoids that trap. Alicia did the same thing when choosing that top from Ingenue to wear with blue pants and red shoes.

Her hairstyle was done by Elikatira. It’s an elegant, but casual style that looks perfect with this outfit – particularly as there is not a hair out of place.

She used a light touch with her jewelry, wearing these Elephantastic Earrings from Undefined Lilies, a bracelet from Mezzo and her wedding band.
