And Far Away

The snow was starting to get me down so I moved to warmer climes.

I wanted to start with something colourful so I pulled out the jacket and scarf I found in an outlet of Peqe on the Euphoria sim. I understand the set is exclusive to this location and comes in four colour options of the same style. Open to the front with wood buttons on the side, the sleeves are rolled up past the wrists. The cowl scarf hangs loose to the neck, sitting over the raise of the padded shoulders. Be aware that the jacket may cut through if you wear an AO with a lot of shift on the upper body or the hips as it consists of just one prim for the main section; it’s similar to most prim jacket styles so you should be a pro at adapting your stance to suit.

Ride On

I got me some horses – to pose with at least.

This look started with the lower section, drawing inspiration from these unusual trousers from LeLutka. The pants are hipster style with exaggerated side pockets that hang wide from the body, contrasting against the skinny legs. There are leather straps of various lengths that accentuate the excess, contrasting in colour with metallic hoops decorating the lengths. The pants are sold in very few shades and are a little pricey for a single pair, but I do like that they’re something different which was what ultimately convinced me to part with my Lindens.

Homecoming

*Whistles innocently and slips back in, closing the door soundlessly behind her*

LeLutka isn’t somewhere I shop too frequently. Historically that’s because of the horrendous lag I always experience on the sim, but I have to say that their new build seems far more friendly to the busy shopper and I’ve found myself there more and more of late. I spotted this pretty mac and couldn’t resist – it’s the sort of coat you can wear through the seasons, and it does sit well over whatever else you might have on. Read the rest of this entry »

The Sound of Silence

“You hesitate to stab me with a word, and know not – silence is the sharper sword.” Samuel Johnson

TART’s cardigan started this look off. I have it in a few colours now; it’s so easy to wear and looks great layered with more summery tops and dresses. Buttoned beneath the chest and falling open below, the jersey stretches around the body, given shape by the puffed sleeves that finish just over the wrists. Read the rest of this entry »

Fit for purpose

One of my fashion passions in both lives is boots. While I wouldn’t dream of wishing the remainder of the Summer away, I must admit to being a little excited at the prospect of the Autumn-Winter footwear releases, and it seems SLink are treating us a little early.

SLink have provided four new releases for the Shoe Fair, my favourite being the Mieke Riding Boots. If you’re looking for something with a practical, equestrian feel, you really can’t go wrong here; the calf length boots are dipped front and back with defined seams splitting the leather. Available in six shiny tones, they run with a silver zip to the inside leg and are detailed further by a studded strap that hooks under the sole, just in front of the stacked heel. The boots are Viewer 2 ready with an easy use HUD for resize and to turn the invisiprim on or off, and available exclusively at the Shoe Fair 2010. Read the rest of this entry »

Free Fall

When I’m not flying, I’m falling; I could change that, but I’m more afraid of standing still.

I started with this top from a dress by A-bomb. I love the lace effect, carefully overlaid on a satin backing. Strapless as this is, it lends itself very well to layering with the Sasha blouse from DeLa, which pulls up to a halter neck tied with a long, floppy bow at the front. Ribbon ties are intrinsically feminine and combine well with the lace, tied in to the various accents on the outfit through colour. Read the rest of this entry »

Sound Check

No audience and perfect acoustics. Time to get my groove on.

The look starts with a plain jersey dress from Dreams. Available on all layers, you’ll have no trouble finding things to wear with a well-made body con frock; black is always a safe choice but Sanura Snowpaw has plenty of other options available. The detail is there although a little overshadowed in this particular tone, with modifiable prims on the skirt to ensure you can adjust to suit your shape. Read the rest of this entry »
