I have a slight obsession with pinstripe, I think it is a fantastic fabric, and just love what can be done with it now that we have mesh. In the past system layers would distort pinstripe that it often just was not a good look, but now we can revel in it. The NEW Portan bustier/corset top from SySy’s just hit the store, and it comes in many delicious colours. There are also amazing brights colours and the lemon will be my favourite especially with the upcoming sunnier SL days…while I freeze my buns off Down Under.
Every year I declare to myself I wont follow the seasons in SL that I will try and stick to my own, so that I can at least feel snuggly and warm, but there are always such beautiful creations released, there is no way that can ever happen. It is rough during our summer though, sweating and bundling up my avatar in snow boots and parkas lol. While summer in SL can fool me into feeling warmer, winters in SL just makes it hotter.
The other thing that makes me cranky about the seasons, BOOTS ARE NOT WINTER ONLY! I get so sad that we only get a new stream of boots in the wintery months, because I love boots all year round, just like soup. These boots are a recent release by RedMint and each version ( I am wearing No1) has a huge HUD full of colour options, for not only the base leather, but also the legwarmers and the ties around the tops of them, that makes them incredible versatile.
The other HUD item worn, is the previously blogged Cargo skirt by Miel, this skirt is a great hip hugging mini, and the belted military look is so much fun. The HUD allows for changing the base texture, the pockets and belt.
The skin I am wearing is the NEW Cleo skin by Glam Affair. The skin comes with 12 make ups and 1 base skin, as well as different brow colours and extra skin enhancements. I am loving the make ups on this release, especially 12 which is really attractive. Glam Affair now also have their Slink avatar enhanced appliers available for the hands and feet, so it brings everything together so nicely…also look out for the upcoming The Arcade event that also has a Glam Affair skin called Lulu as a Gatcha item.
The hair I am wearing was released this morning, and it is called Ellie. It has a shaved portion on the sides, with new hairbases that are included with the hair. The style is rigged and comes in 2 sizes which is awesome if you need the extra space in the chest area. There ar also special edition ROOTS packs, that have stronger roots in the reds and blondes and fades options.
To finish off the look I went with the recent Limited Bazaar item from Gossamer Jewellery, this is an Alice in Wonderland inspired necklace, and a very cute idea. I really like the length of the chains and the overall vibe of the piece.
