Busted

Not much to say today besides that this look is really all about this leather vest from DE Designs.

Photos were taken at Rerty Zoo.

Half of what I’m wearing is the same as in my last post which is a big coincidence considering how many looks I went through between them.

Also if anyone knows why my screenshots sometimes come out with jagged edges and sometimes don’t I’m all ears.

Leggings as Pants

or; The Case of Shut Up They’re Comfortable.

This was a lazy photo shoot – I was just landmark hopping to pass time when I thought “hey, I should take some photos of my narcssistic gorgeous self”.  I’m sporting the two classiest trends around: a sheer top and leggings as pants.

This is my “design concept” top.  It’s made from a Meli Imako mesh that I talked about here.  I’m getting a real appreciation for buying full perm.  It’s fun to customise.

The leggings are mesh from HOC Industries and come with a colour-change HUD.

Photos are taken in one of the show homes at Scarlet Creative.  I sometimes poke around there because the houses are all beautiful if a bit empty.

I go into show homes on weekends and drink coffee. What about it?

I stuck this photo on when I realised none of the others showed off the cute cat ear headband well.  It’s from Statement and I’m buying it in all the colours.

We Have a Creed

Today’s look was inspired by this hoodie from Shi:

 Yeah I parkour in heels.

 This hoodie has big cut out sleeves which I’m kind of in to at the moment.  It does clip through me in some places around the sides and chest though.  It’s also hard to find hair that fits under the hood, what with all the big mesh hair these days.  I’ll probably be breaking out some older pre-mesh hairs so I can move prims around to flatten the top.

 Or I can just wear this old but badass hair from The Abyss.

The other part of the outfit is this messenger bag from HOC.  It has the same problems with strap fitting that all SL messenger bags have but it looks great and it’s cheap like everything from HOC so I’m not complaining.

You Can Pull Off Anything If You Look Confident Enough

More Meli Imako goodness: the full perm blazer and t-shirt.  I changed the texture to make the tshirt transparent so it’s just a blazer.  Unfortunately because of alpha clashing bugs it gives me trouble with hair or sheer tops that overlap the invisible tshirt.

Remember where we parked

Photos were taken at Virtual Decay (the same location as my last walking-in-high-waisted-denim-shorts post coincidentally).

Making a Statement

So I recently brought the full perm back hem tank top kit from Meli Imako.  I love having full perm stuff that I can customise and this top is just like a big white canvas to write on:

For example

It actually clips through my shoulders a bit but I decided I’m happier with that than the  larger sizes that don’t look like they fit me right.  Best worn with your hair down I suppose.

As you can see I’m getting my money’s worth

I have more but none of the photos came out right and I can’t be bothered re-taking them right now so I guess stay tuned for Making a Statement 2: Top in the City.  Or something.

High and Waisted

I have a bit of a thing for high waists and I pretty much fell in love with this dress from Villena as soon as I saw it:

You buy different skirt colours and it comes with a colour change HUD for the top.

UPDATE: You can now buy the skirt separately as well if you want.  Which I do.

It’s December

This is pretty much my new default look – the saved outfit I switch to when I don’t know what to wear.  It was always going to be a blazer.

What I’m Wearing:

Blazer & Top: Ricielli – Blazer + Shirt /feline
Jeans: VG Republic – Female Dollarbie Denim
Shoes: UBU PornStar Hi-Tops

Necklaces: Fusion – Chained Pearl Necklace (Silver)

Eyes: Damien Fate – FATEeyes
Hair: Wasabi Pills – Melissa Mesh Hair (from The Arcade, don’t know if they’ll put it in the store)

Neurohat

Today’s outfit is brought to you by this demo cap from Neurolab.  It’s a $1 demo but it’s also perfectly wearable – you just pay for hats with different designs on them.  Maybe it’s just because I’m cheap but I like that idea.  It also has great resizing and stretching scripts in it that made it surprisingly easy to fit over my unmoddable mesh hair.  Admittedly though this is some of the flatter hair I have and the hat’s still huge.

These are also the new and improved UBU High-Tops.  They look just like the old ones I own but now they’ve got improved scripts and – the reason I got them – you can now remove the scripts, so I don’t feel bad wearing them to busy places any more.

Photos were taken at NN City, much better photographed by Melusina Parkin on Flickr.

What I’m Wearing:

Hat: Neurolab – MESH CAP “Brand” V.3
Bodysuit: R.icielli – IRIS body

Spiked Bracelet: Pure Poison – Wicki Spikes Bracelets

Dark Eye Shadow: Caliente Express – Eyeshadow Smoke Eyes

Eyes: Ikon – Sunrise Eyes

So I Went to R.icielli

…and all I got was this t-shirt.  And this blazer.  And shorts.  And shoes.  And eyeliner.

Photos taken at Glam Affair

It turns out R.icielli has a lot of great stuff available for 10L or 15L from various little hunts they’ve had.  Although it was hard figuring out what half of it was since a lot of things didn’t seem to be for sale anywhere. Fortunately there are image guides posted everywhere.

R.icielli use the standard avatar sizes so I don’t normally wear their dresses or bottoms since the standard hips and bums are huge on me (I look pretty comical from behind in these shorts) but I like their designs and for 15L I’ll live with it.  Also I just can’t say no to a good blazer.

I wish the t-shirt was optional though, for better mix-and-matching

You’ll Look So Pretty In A Dress

If you’ve read this post and wondered what I meant by hedging my looks this is it.

Photos taken at the park in Cupcake.

This is much more me, courtesy of some of my favourite things.  The jacket’s from Cipher and has been a favourite for years.  I love the design but it’s made from a pile of sculpts and I’d love a nice mesh version.  I don’t think she’s active any more but I can dream.

These stockings are also a few years old from Apple May but I love the texture

The dress is relatively new from Mon Tissu and is gorgeous but it flares out in a weird way when you sit down.  So try not to sit sit unless you want to flash your alpha layer and people.

Not looking at the camera: it’s kind of my thing.

What I’m Wearing

Jacket: Cipher – Riders Jacket Shawty
Dress: Mon Tissu – Rokoray Dress
Stockings: Apple May – Little Clover Thigh Highs
Boots: Celoe – Cairo Boots

Choker: Refuge – Chained Ring Spike Collar
“Earrings”: Truth – Rayne (actually for hair)

Eyeshadow: Glamorize – Knockout Eyes – Smokey
Eyelashes: Redgrave – Diva
Hair: Truth – Angie
Skin: Belleza – Aiko (medium)
