Raymond Chandler’s favorite woman was a femme fatale, one who could kill with her pure sexuality and cunning. This is a perfect, more modern look for her, starting with the mesh corset Betty Doyle is offering at Collabor88. One of the best parts of mesh is we can now wear something that cinches the waist and doesn’t cut into the avatar and Betty has made a perfect piece with its baroque brocade and vibrant color. I paired it with black capris from Antonia Marat’s sale and polka dotted pumps from Tya Fallingbridge. Can you get anymore “fatal” than this?
Even more fatal is this absolutely gorgeous new skin from Tricky Boucher, made for the Vintage Fair with more versions at the Fashion Voodoo event. For the longest time, it was nigh near impossible to find a good skin as a blonde—brows were always too dark, complexion was off, makeup was too bold. Now skin designers are getting it and making skins with eyebrow tattoos or separate eyebrows with the appropriate coloring. And Tricky’s is sooooooo gorgeous. I was stunned when I put it on, with its beautiful cat eyes, perfectly colored and arched brows, and his signature luscious lips. Dang, Tricky!
Then Elikapeka Tiramisu comes out with this Jessica Rabbit hair in mesh that is to die for. With locks over the eye and a very studied curl at the clavicle, it’s the picture of smooth that makes this blonde “make a bishop kick a hole in a stained glass window.”
