Some old and new items today, and an absolutely ancient one. The Hair Rose by Fiachra Lach was something that only really old readers and bloggers alike would possibly remember. It became my signature for many years, every outfit, every blog post contained a hair rose by Essentia. Not only was he my bestie, but also each rose was actually created in colours usually over something I wore, the collection grew and grew, he even screen shot my bum once to get a colour match to an Artilleri leopard bikini.
I still love my Essentia roses, so once this outfit started to come together, it truly was a no brainer to be the icing on the cake. Now the hair itself does come with flowers, beautiful, delicate ones, and it is a great style for it, actually it’s three styles for it, as it’s one of those great combination add on styles that you can build on with the pieces provided. Tableau Vivant has this Teri style out at Fameshed, and the messy updo, the long braid or the braid and updo combo, will fit right into your hair rotation.
I like seeing updo’s as a thing still in SL, it used to be a normal day to see Ladies tp into stores in full formal affair bald and trying to find that perfect one for their look before they tpd off again to an event. The days when events actually meant something different in SL. The days when it was normal to actually own enough gowns to cover your week, because anything could happen, and it was not uncommon to be invited to two or even more formal occasions in the same 24 hour period, that timezone thing is a killer.
We were actually discussing that, and the black and red and lace obsession that SL seemed to have in the olden days, every club used to have at least one black and red, or lace and leather contest a week…most creators based their releases on this very thing, and it worked. Seems the grain furrowed into my subconscious because here I am, without real intention in a black and red, with gold traces running through.
I saw these great earrings in the C88 rotation by Yummy, and if you have ever watched the ways of Yummy and older Paper Couture items, there was always a really nice leaning towards this kind of look. I love them, they are gorgeous, and with the Maxi Gossamer necklace , also at C88 the colour combinations came up a treat. Now usually I am more partial to Silver, but the gold just needed to happen.
I had the pants, these great skinny leathers by One Bad Pixel, that redid their whole collection to include Slink sizes for Original and Hourglass…then the shoes by Vale Koer being able to be textured in parts made it easy to combo my red and black. But it was the trip over to Gizza – Whimsy is going to be mad I went on my own – that really brought the look home, this embellished jacket is part of a two part shorts set, but wearing jacket only, because otherwise a tad too much. It is gorgeous, there is even more perfect detailing down the back. The set is a must have, and there just happened to be a crochet bikini top also at Gizza that fits under it, there is a tiny bit of poke through on the back of the neck, but not enough for me to pass it up, and as they are not made for each other it is not a fault.
I truly love the combination, and the re-telling of my Hair Roses story, I swear it has appeared at least 8 times over the years :P.
