Let It Be Me

“If it’s a friend you need
Let it be me…”
~ Ray LaMontagne

I took a trip down to Tampa this weekend to visit my dear friend Raven Pennyfeather (yes, like in Real Life!) and I had the opportunity to meet the wonderful folks who have run the RFL Clothing Fair, Nevar Lobo and Amethyst Starosin (and it will have a different name this year—more coming soon). I also got to meet Cashel Rang and my dear friend SC Tracy (in the flesh)! It was hotter’n heck down there for me. I got home, and it seemed arctic in comparison. A cold front came through and gobsmacked me. I had to wear SOCKS! Then the winds cracked a huge branch off my favorite crab tree. (I have been moping all week.)

I also had to put on a sweater. This outfit reminds me of the whole ordeal. I start with a new jacket from LeeZu Baxter, the queen of texturing over sculpties and the goddess of building a terrific fashionable silhouette with them. Again, we see LeeZu’s complex but fashion-forward color ways and textures playing themselves out in this jacket. What is most impressive is the multiple prim sleeve she has made that articulates with the movement of the arm without showing gaps. The line of the sleeve moves directly into the collar in one seamless line. Excellent work!

The skin is a new one from Julliette Westerburg, part of the Designers United offerings and delicate with its gentle blush, porcelain skin and glossy neutral lips. Julliette’s style is definitely more illustrative than photo-real. You can see her strokes in the eyebrows and lips. It’s a unique look, reminiscent of colorized illustrations from the 50s. The pop of green on the eyelids is a last summer hurrah before the leaves turn red and orange.

Finally these lovely pastiche boots from LeeZu, illustrative of her texturing prowess AND building skill. I zoomed in very close on these boots and nary a flaw did I find. Every piece is in place and they fit perfectly (though the brand on the sole suggests they are “flexible size”). I suggest you get a pair just so you can gaze at their exquisite and detailed construction, from the stitching along the cuffs and along the sole to the buckles on the front and back to the pretty string tie holding them closed. You want to see art in SL? Look no further than my feet!
