You ever see those women and men who walk around in heavy duty outerwear.. you know, the ones that wear the state-of-the-art quilted coats from places like The North Face or Patagonia, coats that could be worn in Antarctica to view the March of the Penguins while keeping oneself in relative comfort. These are the same people with heated seats in their Volvos and iPhones in their pocket (so their tushies don’t get cold and they don’t miss any e-mails). They WOULD be down south, wind slapping their face red, tears turning to icicles, BUT… there is no decent latte in Antarctica…
Damen Gorilla of Adam n Eve makes it out as if these vests are for hearty women, women who are adventurers, who climb prim mountains and brave the frigid cold. (“For the adventurous women…. those who prefer not to sacrifice their style whilst halfway up the mountain, navigating through the north west passage or fording a giant delta somewhere..”) Well I spoke to him about that, and I called his bluff. He admitted it’s all for the ad. He just wants you to get the vest because it’s well made and good. I would agree.
Damen has crafted a well-designed sculpty vest combined with terrific textures (and I show the white here because white is darn hard to make right). It fits well, covers well (sometimes the avatar bleeds through the sculpty in odd places on prim jackets but not this one), and is versatile. I would recommend it for any mountain-climbing cappucino drinker!
I slipped on some jeans from Sumi Sorbet/Tuli Asturius (complete with strawberry and too tight to wear long underwear underneath), wore a sweater and earmuffs from Antonia Marat and stuck a cup of latte from Redd Columbia in my hand. A sweet casual ponytail from fri.day and relatively unmade-up skin from Lorac Farella, and I am SO ready for that mountain.. or hill.. or walk from the coffeehouse to the bookstore in the next block. Yeah…
The finale to this outfit are a pair of sweet little Ughs from Eponymous Trenchmouth. Now, I could walk around in these all day—they are like slippers—sheepskin inside, supple suede on the outside—a recipe for toasty feet. (Yes, I realize these are “not real,” but Epy makes them so well, I just FEEL warm looking at them.)
