I picked up this gorgeous jacket at Vintage and Cool – a vintage clothing fair held last year. I loved the beautiful lace and leather jacket and the lovely details, but had not found the opportunity to wear it – but when I put together this outfit focusing on some of the wonderful finds at My Slink Obsession, I remembered it and pulled it out of the closet. The lovely nail polish is from Stellar at My Slink Obsession.
The outfit really begins with the Somnia Cranial Trim top which was released today at My Slink Obsession. As with everything made by Sanura Snowplow, the quality is exquisite. The hand drawn textures in the bodice are beautiful and, by the way, are the reason I chose the jacket. The last picture in this post has a close up that lets you see how well the straps on the shoulders are done. That is where you can see the difference between the good and the excellent. Somnia is excellent. The only reason I do not wear it more often is she works with a much softer color palette than what I gravitate towards – for me, I generally go for prints and strong, bright, saturated colors. But coral? Well, coral is one of my favorite colors and is one of the universal colors that look good with every skin type.
I shot the pictures outside ISON. I love this sim so much.
I wore this steel grey pencil skirt form Just Because. Notice how the band below the bodice is the same color – as though made for this skirt. Now that’s serendipity! I really liked the fit of this skirt so I bought a fat pack, something I rarely do anymore, but pencil skirts are investments as they go with so much and almost always look great with anything.
These shoes from Klepsydra are also from the My Slink Obsession event. They are gorgeous, delicate and lacy and a perfect complement to the top. They come with two versions, a see through lace and a one that has a self-color lining. They look like your feet are wrapped in cobwebs, delicate and beautiful cobwebs.
I used the YS&YS Ramona skin and added lipstick from KoKoLoReS – both found at My Slink Obsession. The hair is a short pixie cut from Dura and the jewelry is from Kunglers and is bold and lacy at the same time. The Dura hair is mocha and I add a bit of salmon tint to it to get this color. I like what I get from tinting their mocha better than their actual red.
