Headline: New York Divorcee Spends Thousands at Husband’s Expense

This sweater reminds me of all the extremely stylish matrons of world renown who are the woman behind the man.  Jackie Onassis, Brooke Astor, etc.  They were larger than life women with class and pride.  I found this sweater by Chantkare and for the first time in my second life, I want to put on white hair, talk about botox, and dress like my life depended upon it.

Manhattan Power Wife

My story for this character is a first wife; there for her man when he was just a lowly stock trader.  He is now a titan of industry, but resentful of all that she has done for him.  To assert his fledgling identity, he has been sleeping with a young model and like that it is out with the older, and in with the teenybopper.

But hell have no fury like a woman scorned.  She has hired the best divorce attorneys and hawked all her priceless jewelry to pay for them.  She still dresses like a queen, but her throne is in danger.  To show her husband, and the world, that a wife isn’t so easily dismissed, she has gallivanted and strutted her way into half his fortune and his company.  They might not be man and wife, but he’ll be pleasing her until his dying day.  Women like this always have the last laugh.  It’s catty and empowering.  I love it.

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

Fall Favs

This fall, the boots to have are calf and above the knee.  For all those with knee highs (I know, I have a dozen), don’t fret; you still look cute :), but a lot of designers are ushering a new age of the thigh highs.  The funniest thing happened to me (IRL).  I was wearing new, suede calf boots and this random woman told me that she used to have a pair of white ones in the 80s… squee!  That’s when  I know I’m doing something right, >D

Thigh High Sheik

Thigh High Sheik

I love the mini/tunic look right now.  I love how this Total Betty dress is off white and slightly bohemian.  It comes with it’s own system belt, but to wear the fri.day jacket, I had to nix that.  To make it up, I replaced the belt with the one I got at the fri.day sale (BTW, how fantastic was that sale?!?  I nabbed things in every color… you can’t not).

These new BAX Coen boots are TO DIE FOR; they have the quality you expect from Bax Coen, and then they blow you away with their detail.  They are also REALLY practical with a full menu of options including auto fit and different accent colors to create the perfect shape and look for the unique avatar.

I am a natural girl, if you didn’t already know, :p so to make this outfit perfect for me, I needed to bring down to earth the glamour of the boots and the hauteness of the belt.  To do this, I have the dress, but I also have Truth‘s wavy hair.  It hides all the effort it took to make my look so effortless.  I complete my ensemble with Lucas Lameth‘s amulet set, which is just the low key way I wanted to adorn my sternum without covering the top detail in the dress.
