The theme for My Attic this round is Town & Country, which for us down this end of the world, when inspired by the UK influence, meant trips to the Manor and the higher end of weekend living. City for the weekdays and weekends spent brunching and high tea’ing all over the place…then of course the long walks with the corgi’s or hounds and what not, but it is great that with such a diverse group of creators, from all over the world, how people interpret themes. That is why we always try and have themes that can be spread out so thoroughly, and I love seeing the outcome, even when I have to wait a month to do so, it is exciting.
I went with the Town influence more in this post, but there are little influences of country, with the addition of the fantastic equestrian inspired jewelry by Cae. Love these items, the bracelet especially as it is just the right size, and has such a beautiful sentimental look to it. It makes me think that at some stage this was a gift from someone important. Like a graduation gift, or a memorable birthday, something that shows the giver knows the receiver better than most. I love that, and I hope you see that in it too.
The impressive dress by Nyu could do both Town & Country depending on your motivation. But in this case, I wanted to create a look that said ‘where is she going?’ or ‘where has she been?’ to a gallery, a dinner date, is she attending a function? all of these things are possible in this perfect ensemble. From the shoes by Bushu that have an impressive wedge heel style that allows for long wear, but definitely in keeping with a sophisticated look. to the wonderful umbrella from Tres Blah that is at this round of Collabor88. Their theme is Muted Coven and while there is darker edge to it all, this umbrella is glorious to have. I feel like one of those very fair skinned girls that just have their whole style together, and will use an umbrella/parasol during day or night to protect themselves from sun or rain, it doesn’t matter, it has become as much a part of them as wearing a watch or carrying a purse.
The hair definitely carries over into that too, this is by Lamb, also at C88 and her bangs styles are what made me fall in love with Lamb hair in the first place, and the two styles at this round brought all that rushing back.
This amazing background is part of Rowne’s release for The Arcade, it is amazing and looks just like a city street. Not only did I do a front shot though, but so that the window had some realism, I shot a backshot and used it on the glass, giving it a more authentic realism. If you can get your hands on the Rowne gacha items, definitely worth playing until you get your hands on everything. The bag is also from the release, and adorable and rich leathery goodness.
The skin I am wearing is by Glam Affair, it is also a Gacha item, part of the Shiny Shabby event that is currently running. I am wearing the 7 skin, which has such lovely full red lips and smokey cateye make up. I am using the no brow options as I have my own on. The poses used are by Ma Vie at My Attic, and named after the creator of Glam Affair Aida Ewing (Didi) so cute.
