Act on Impulse

Act on Impulse

I chose the title of a new song by We Were Promised Jetpacks to explain my look. It was impulse that got me to throw on this ensemble.

The whole thing reminds me of the mish mosh outfits I would put together in graduate school, thinking I was pretty chic. Chances are I was probably pretty mish moshy but I had the youth to pull it off. I start with a great little suit jacket from Marcantonio Beaumont with nicely sculpted shoulders, cuffs, and skirt. The shape of this jacket is flattering and girlish and very well done with little cuffs that have a polka dot lining. (I wore old man suits from the Goodwill all the time.) Underneath is a girlish cardigan from Emma Gilmour, well rendered and soft and comfy.

My skirt is a darling sculpted skirt from Trill Zapatero made from men’s neckties. Now, I confess to an affection for neck ties because they make men look so handsome and dressed up,but when they are old and wide as these are, they should be repurposed to make a skirt (or vest, as I once made in RL). My scarf, from Nagaru Kawashima, and knee socks, from Saeya Nyanda, were recolored (dyed with Rit in the apartment washing machines). Shoes are adorable t-straps from Cerberus Noel.

My casually clipped up curly do is a new one from Queue Marlowe, who has made it her mission to spread joyous curliness around the grid. This is a new texture from her, wrought from hours of labor. My skin is one of Gala Phoenix’s glowing luminescent skins. I accessorized with chic but cheap color changing glasses from Guu Nishi and my favoritist brown eyes on the grid from Ikon Innovia.
