Nice Day for a White Wedding

I don’t really no where today’s article came from.  Invariably it starts off with me trying to make an outfit.  I thought I would do some dancing tonight, but half-way through changing, I decided to go check out new releases.  So I put on the fishnets and darkened my makeup.  That’s when the Billy Idol song started looping in my head.  So now I want to talk about some of the new stuff I have gotten recently.

This pose is free from Olive Juice at the Pose Fair on Shisei.  The skin is Laqroki’s newest creation, Elena.  I have to be honest and say that though this skin is impressive, I did notice one flaw and that is that while the body has the typical Laq pigment, the face has a lot less yellow in it which makes face and body subtly mismatched.  Of course this is no issue considering I bought all ten makeups for under $2000L.  It’s still stunning!

What I wear when I’m dancing with myself…

Now is the time to don your newest party dress and celebrate the end of the year like it was the last!  Here’s a toast to a new year and a decade of fashion and I can’t wait to see what Second Life brings in the future.

This month I was lucky enough to sample the new releases from Fab.Pony and I must say that I am happy to see Tatianna Faulkes is still ahead of the curve.  Her greatest addition this season?  Unitards, which should be the first fashion trend for the new year.  Leggings have come back in the last few years and now that same lycra magic can spread all the way up the torso.  Accessorize a unitard and you have created a perfect outfit for a party or event where trendiness is imperative.

Autumn Leaves Start to Fall

This week has been less about fashion and more about socializing for me in Second Life.  I have casually been shopping some new stores, but for the most part I’ve been hanging with friends and exploring.

Looking this casual is hard work.

Looking this casual is hard work.

These two looks are very different but share commonalities.  One is rural while the other is urban.  One is modern while the other is traditional.  But both are cute and comfortable with flats that keep my feetsies warm in the cooling weather and thick pants for lovely days in the fall weather.  They are multipurpose outfits, perfect for this week when I was all over the grid.

Both have on…

[PF] Skye <Milk> – Beestung  (dkbrow)  <— Has a rosy cheek perfect for outdoor apparel

Eyes Leona -SageGreen- *REDGRAVE*

*Beauty Avatar* REGINA – Eyelashes 03

Lefty is wearing…

fri. – Kate – Timid Brown  <— Gotta love Fri.Day releases

Intrigue Co. – Love Love Love (black) shirt <—- offers a hint of color that sets off this other wise monotone ensemble

MichaMi: Carmela Cardie in Black

Schadenfreude Pearl necklace with cameo <—- I love mixing old and new, so a cameo on a multicolor pearl strand is perfect for making this contemporary outfit more eclectic.

MichaMi: Carmela Belt in Black <— Shiny patent belt adds interest without standing out and becoming the focal point.

{SMS} Shiny Denim Black  <—- They’re supposed to be denim, but I swear that they look so much like leather.  This adds contrast to my other cotton textures that again adds “zazz.”

*AuMa* *KNITTED Boot’s GRAY*

Righty has on…

fri. – Rashelle – Passionate Red

*ARGRACE* COAT ” Traveler”  (Rose) Lady <— an amazing job.  I love how versatile and realistic this jacket looks.  And it comes with optional sweater underneath (wearing)

:::Sn@tch Cashmere Scarf:::

(Ducknipple) Barks – Brown  <— I have always loved plaid pants.  They are a perfect alternative to jeans.

MIEL ANT FLATS – BROWN DERBY

Good Time

So this song has been stuck in my head for a few weeks now.  It’s by the Brazilian Girls and I heard it while clubbing one night.  Even with the overwhelming base line beating my brain cells from the gigantic floor speakers, I recognized the fun, laissez-faire humor of this single and instantly fell in love with it.  I later got the album, “New York City,” and have enjoyed playing it over and over again.

Some people go ooh, quoi quoi, they go qui
Some people have nothing and want nothing and are free
Some people want to burn the world with their greed
We just want to have a good time

The message is simple: do what you want, but I’m here to have fun.  This basically nutshells my life at the moment.  So with that in mind, I became inspired to reenact the Brazilian Girl video for “Good Time” by hoping on my bike, going to the park, and rocking my indie duds.

We just want to have a good time all the time

We just want to have a good time all the time

The lead singer of the band, Sabina Sciubba, is eccentric and pushes the limit of fashion while showing a lot of leg at the same time.  She’s a Continental sophisticate who incorporates the unconventional in her work, which is one of the reasons why the band is so successful in the house industry.

My Sabina impression includes:

The new Blondie Glow skin from Laqroki.  I loved #8 at first glance, what with its smooth complexion and perfectly salmon colored lips, the only hard decision was whether I wanted it in milky or peach skin tone (I went for the paler milky after some deep soul searching, heehee)

VintageWear‘s pushed and shoved has such wonderful textures and suits the skin beautifully.  I got every color and chose the chestnut shade because it resembles my inspirations.  I’m also wearing the necklace they preview at the Horst store, The Mixed Tape.

The dress is from Pink Outfitters.  The Izzy Ruffle dress in winter mint showcases Sciubba’s style; a modern cut with structure and plenty of skin shining through.  I put on a yellow tank from Armidi underneath just to give it a little more color.  The yellow matches my banana pumps from Shiny Things, but you can’t see that in this picture 😛

My jewelry is eclectic and is as follows: besides the already mentioned necklace, I’ve got on Glass Chunk bracelet from Shiny Things and SD Wears‘ Lick Me candy bracelet (I wanted a touch more color).  I’m also wearing two rings; Kawaii Jelly‘s red butterfly and Redgrave‘s big sapphire.  Also from Redgrave are my earrings.
