Big Snuggly Sweater

I traded my summer clothes for my winter clothes the other day, which requires hauling a prim out of my studio, unpacking it, watching my inventory blow up, and then taking said same prim, packing it with summer clothes, and scurrying it away. (You think this is not true? Well, it’s not entirely true but I do have prims packed full of stuff in my studio.)

So after I wrangled the Fishook dress into the prim (and got a little hurt in the process), I looked at what I had. A few holey sweaters, some socks without matches, and a skirt I somehow got spaghetti sauce on. (How did I do that? I NEVER eat in SL!) Clearly I had to go shopping! (That is my excuse and I am sticking to it!)

I found myself at SMS (So Many Styles), tripping over the Fifty Linden Friday sign on the way to the good stuff. Inside I found, well.. so many styles–granny dresses, patchwork, vintage, ethnic, jewelry. My cam landed on this cute sweater. It looked just like the oversized snuggly sweater I would wear on a nippy day with its generously sculpted cowl neck collar and bell sleeves. Irie Campese clearly has a lot to say to the fashion world in SL, all of it good.

I ran home and pulled on these versatile leggings from Mimikri Kit. I can see these being utilized in many ways—with a sleek sexy top out dancing at a club, with a dress and boots to keep my legs warm, on a lazy day when dressing up and feeling uncomfortable is out of the question.

I found a sweet deal on a set of skins and hair for 200L for the batch on the second floor of Fishy Strawberry—similar to Cupcake’s gift packs of skins and dresses. Put together a pretty good look pretty cheaply with these packs from Fae Eriksen, and get a taste of her great work. This skin is one of the varied tones in the pack, all with blue eye shadow and the pale lip.

Truth Hawks pumps out hair every week, week after week, all varied, all beautiful, all perfect for the beautiful avatar about town. How the heck does he do it? This casual but stylish do, held back with color change hair bands, suited the curvy shapes of the sweater perfectly.

And of course, my trusty old Bloom boots from Onyx LeShelle. I remember when I first got these, in Maitreya’s little store with its five pairs of boots and five shirts and two posing stands and a Buddha on the wall. Remember that? I nearly fainted when I first found these boots—soft supple suede, richly colored, stylishly buckled. Find these babies in RL for me and I will be your best friend forever.

One thought on “Big Snuggly Sweater

  1. You made me feel all warm and snuggly… and yes I surely do remember that original Maitreya store!!! Jam Hoody is still one of my favorites… complete with a pair of Tuli black jeans and some chucks from I-dun-remember-where… :-)
