Trench coats are synonymous with sexy, and I had to restrain myself from being all about the trench coat and only the trench coat for this post. Mind you in most situations where that is a thing, it often plays out badly. I think the idea of being bare under there, with trench coats is that they are so classically refined, they are very proper and have an almost built in barrier with the belt and the buttons, so the idea of mixing the two ideas is fascinating.
Mon Tissu just released this Bristol trench which is a medium length style, just skimming the tops of the thighs, and with double breasted button detailing that is really nicely done. The oversized buttons even added to the strapping at the cuffs is a good effect. With the options of wear, there are many, first off anything system is going to work, but diving into the mon tissu past releases I was able to go hybrid with the westbury skirt that is both system and mesh,so that fit perfectly. I was all about the yellow and red today and then Sofia Gray came to visit and showed me that great minds think a like. If you love her styling as much as we do, make sure you check out her Flickr as she has been doing looks on there with info amazing pics.
Then moving on to the great mesh skinny jeans that are part of Tutti Frutti’s release for the My Attic event that ends tomorrow night, so don’t miss out. I can’t believe that it was me that ended up blogging the leopard print version and not Whimsy, as she is animal print mad, but then it is probably more to do with the fact that she will wear them lots and lots even after she does get there eventually. She did do a great post wearing the red paisley style versions HERE the other day. After these sexy jeans in this print though, I can feel becoming a fan of them myself…I am also loving the other prints especially the gold and pink, you need to see them for yourself.
The other great fit under the pants, were the mesh leggings from Maitreya, I am wearing the just leggings version, but they are the ones that also come with the amazing shoe portion as well, so that means another look to go with the coat really well. There of course can be some clipping on any mesh over mesh dependant on the animation or pose, but unless I went into extreme poses this combo was perfect, as were the others.
The boots I am wearing in all three pics are the bulldog booties from Kitties Lair, these sturdy ankle boots have all sorts of attitude. The lace up fronts are great, the sturdy heel is high enough to almost be signature KL, and I just love the white ones, because with the blue coat and white leggings, I felt all secret agent turned sexy nurse for a moment there.
All of the hairstyles I am wearing are from Elikatira, I went with shorter and updo styles today, because I wanted you to see the front of the coat better, the styles are all so wonderful and I really do need to wear hair lots and lots of times. The necklace is one of a set from Gossamer Jewellery that is the Banshee skull set, no skulls on the short version, but the combo and the open and long are all must haves. Other accessories are the fabulous feather style earrings by BOOM that are part of this months Collabor88 you still have time to make it there to grab all the goodies.
