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.

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.

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.

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

It Used To Matter

Today’s photos were taken at Virtual Decay (much more attractively photographed by Honour McMillan here).  It’s a grungy urban decay themed sim built around the Virtual Decay store.

This outfit’s really about these Suicidal Unborn shorts.  I love the texture and I picked this top to show off the high waist.  They line up pretty nicely.

Speaking of this top, I love the idea but not so much the execution.  It tends to stick out in weird ways in some poses but more annoyingly I can’t get an alpha texture to match it.  The same bit of me will be sticking through it in one pose and exposed in another so you can’t win whether you mask it or not.

I still wear it though because I like it but if you can’t stand that kind of thing it’s probably a no-go.

Looking pensive in an alley.

A lot of the textures around here look good at a distance but are pretty blurry up close.  Not sure if that was a problem with my computer not loading textures properly or if they’re just like that.  Wow I’m really complainy today aren’t I?

A closeup of  the studs on the back of the ankle boots.

These ankle boots are a group gift from Lethal Couture.  I like their distinctive style and for 0L there’s no reason NOT to have them.

These boots aren’t made for walking, though.
