When we’re young we set our hearts upon some beautiful idea
Maybe something from a holy book or French philosophia
Upon the thoughts of better men than us we swear by and decree a
Perfect way to end the war of ways the only way to be a…
Work of art, oh to be a work of art

But in time a thought comes tugging on the sleeve edge of our minds
Perhaps no perfect way exists at all, just many different kinds
Oh but if it’s just a thing of taste then everything unwinds
For without an absolute how can the absolute define…
A work of art, oh to be a work of art

~ “Philosophia” by Guggenheim Grotto


I love this gentle song about growing up and learning that life is not black and white. Sometimes SL could use a little of that. And black and white is my look today, starting with two separates that Shai Delacroix has come out with that include her characteristically ingenious HUD that includes a mesh piece that shows you just how the clothing will look with its texture. The sweater and skirt do not have to go together—in fact I suggest you find other separates to wear with them to mix and match because they are both basics, especially the sweater, which comes in many lovely colors. The skirt includes some brilliant artistic looks but I went for this black and white to match the silver shoes Pill Kanto has made for The Secret Affair. (Those heels ARE rezzed. He has cleverly made a platter-shaped heel.)


Mina Nakamura is offering a special black and white set for Kustom 9 as well as others. I decided to tiny this long casual style with black ends to give contrast against Shai’s sweater. My skin is Inka Mexicola’s generous bare look at the Cirque du Seraphim, which ironically donates money for the ASPCA.  My delicious intense eyes are Nicole Button’s newest for Egozy.
