Reveille seemed a perfect name for this post, as when I woke up the first thing I thought about what the trip I took to Panjen a few days ago with Newdoll so she could check out the wonderful lashes there. No lashes in this post, but the longer we stood there chatting a few other things popped out from the walls at me.
I have said on numerous occasions that I really like the older Military look, you know brass buttons and all that good stuff, well even though this post isnt going to have the brass buttons – I ran out of time on that pic, and there is one so look for it too – there are two other coats I got at the same time I just was dieing to share.
This first one is just gorgeous. More of an equestrian look if you want it to be , but like I said I ran out of time, and wanted to share rather than store the pics until I could finish. The Suede Jacket from PanJen is a wonderful rich chocolate brown, with lots of fantastic detailing, from the collar and lapels to the delightful buttoning on either side, I would wear this happily all season.
It’s matched up with some Brown Suede Pants from Celestial Studios but I have tinted them to be a tad darker for the coat. I was very happy that two other goodies I wanted to share also come in chocolate.
The first is the Canimal Boneyard Voodoo Hat, I have it set to pinstripe but there is a menu when you click on the hat giving you the ability to choose from a great assortment of textures in that same colour. Great fun for a goth lolita look , or just to spice up a more tailored style like this one. Whats cute about the hat, for me anyway, is that Canimal on her recent trip had been talking a lot about sweets/cakes etc, and to me the chocolate with the pinstripe makes it look like an incredibly rich paper wrapped brownie cupcake, with candy skulls – you know it does :P.
The other item is the fantastic NEW High Oxfords by Tesla, these make me happy, very happy. You have seen me rave in the past about her Diva heels, and those are just adorable , but these are to me the total Must Have, often I wear boot bottoms as shoes with pants that have prim cuffs, these being only one attachment let you have that very stylish look without having to compromise. Plus I have always been a huge fan of this older style look with a new slant as Tesla does so well. These would also look fantastic with a dress and some fab socks or stockings.
I got to meet up with Ashia Tomsen of FreeStyle the other day for a project I am working on, and she had on this divine hair, always willing to share her finds she let me know it was from House of Munster, a store that has only 4 styles at the moment but they are all fun and lively.
The hair is called Vira, and the way it’s sold is in packs but with a menu script for not only resizing but also texture change, so you wont be filling your inventory with extra items, just one wig you can click to choose the colour you prefer at the time. The more I wear this hair, I have to say the more it reminds me of David Bowie in Labyrynth, so I am suggesting to all you stylin Men to go and try on the demo as well.
This is Military Jacket again by PanJen, there are two – remember brass buttons 🙂 – This one was actually a jacket that kept on giving, sometimes its a certain feature that jumps out at you and you miss others, such was the case with this one. I had already purchased it and was wearing it when on rezzing it I saw the wonderful embroidered detailing on the waist and the cuffs, seriously I had to relook at the vendor because I had totally missed that lol.
I haven’t and rarely mention the prices of things in my posts, but let me just say that the prices on these two coats will make you very happy indeed. So with the extra and very pretty extra embelishment it was a total win. I am wearing the Grey Dress Slacks from First Impressions Monochrome pack – another bargain. All the Dress Slacks at First Impressions are wonderful as well as all the other seperates.
The shoes are the Starley Pumps from ETD , I got so excited when these were released and grabbed the ginormous pack, and am so glad I did because a lot of times the colours in there have totally worked with outfits, and at the moment with the big SALE on it’s a great idea to get them if you don’t already have.
This hair is another I got at Hiccup the other day, the first actually, it is called Alala – something about that name just makes you want to love it, and I do. A great style also for all the big coats with high collars out and about at the moment.
The skins I am wearing today are both from La Sylphide. The Erin skin is just beautiful, I find myself wearing it often just for the character of the face, it doesn’t take from your own shape just enhances it superbly. It has a fresh youthful and healthy quality to it, you need to try on the demos and see for yourself, also tackle the lucky chair there.
