A pair of 45’s made me open my eyes
My temperature started to rise
She was a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5’9, beautiful tall
With just one look I was a bad mess
‘Cos that long cool woman had it all
~ “Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress,” as sung by Raul Malo
I always loved this song and loved this idea. I always wanted to be long and cool and I was sure to find the black dress. It took some doing—more than I thought. I found this sleek and sexy dress from Elisea Carter and it achieved my purposes, making me look long and cool. I like how Elisea combines “hardware” with “software” to achieve this look—prim chains run around the leg and on the shoulder to hold the silk fabric in place.
I opted for Siddean Munro’s Aveela Stilettos as the buckle echoes the hardware of Elisea’s dress and they are simply killer heels. The hud is incredibly easy to use (especially for the color-challenged like me) and her toes are perfect (not too thin or too chunky).
Marisa Feila’s newest skins have just been released and I wore this skin with delight. With its smooth and subtle makeup and slight upturn on the corners of the mouth (which is really very sexy), I thought this was the perfect choice for my long cool woman. My hair is Elikapeka Tiramisu’s 50L Friday offering—another classic, hopefully gridwide with its elegant silhouette.
My jewels are Belle Roussel’s newest release and are as exquisite as they look. With their practical shape, these can go from evening wear to possibly a day time look for a spoiled diamond-loving girl. Belle has incredible diamond textures and while her jewels DO bling (yes I admit it), it’s very subtle and adds a little depth (and relatively low lag—I checked).
I saw her headin’ to the table
With a tall walking big black cat
When Charlie said I hope that you’re able boy
Well I’m telling you she knows where it’s at
