Lest you all think I am getting soft in my old age with yellow and sweet things, I thought I might do something a little edgier today.

Black is easy to carry off in RL and SL but making black interesting is another challenge altogether. In this case, I wear black with skin breaking up the look and white to offset it. LeeZu Baxter has come out with a great new knit jacket, one made in her one inimitable style with a groovy shapes and textures. The sleeves alone warrant a second look as that zipper IS a sculpty with every tooth popping out in 3D (none of this drawn-in zipper stuff for LeeZu). The texture up close is a knit (which you know I like) and the lining has a groovy argyle appearance.

My tank is from Dick Wiesel, who likes to cut his tops a little short. (Not enough fabric, Dick?) For this look it’s entirely appropriate and matches the jacket seamlessly. Again, I show boots from LeeZu Baxter and Enktan Gully. I love these boots too much. Pants are from Genie Lassard and I cover the silly top open button with a great leather belt from Tya Fallingbridge that fits my avatar perfectly and has groovy fringes hanging down.

Mallory Cowen has one heck of a midriff on her skins. Toned and sexy, the skin glows and my boobs aren’t squished together in the top (which would make no sense when I am clearly not wearing a lot of support up there). Finally, this punky hair from Mirja Mills completes the look perfectly with its blue streaks, asymmetrical cut and crazy who-cares curls popping out all over.

Smooth Like Butter

There is nothing better than a sweater you can slip on that makes you warm and looks fashionable.

This great buttery sweater from Janie Marlowe comes from her new collection at Jane. Janie’s been doing SL clothing since almost the beginning of time, but what is great about her is that she realizes that constant improvement, even by rebranding, is what is necessary in this world. This sweater is a pretty and inexpensive top for nearly any outfit—great for mixing and matching. Her sculpties are well made; her textures are dead on.

I tucked a top from Aree Lillibub underneath. I love Aree’s store and hope she keeps doing her pretty little separates into fall. My pants I found during Hump Day by Genie Lassard. I bought ALL the pants. I am not terribly fond of the open button on top (I ate too much or have PMS or gained weight or what?) but the slim silhouette and great textures make these pants very usable if you have a long top.

My hair is my namesake from Queue Marlowe. I know Queue is working hard on several new pieces (though she has shown me nothing—I just get the residual angst in IMs from her). I love this hair. It’s so me (in RL as well as SL). And of course, I wear a beautiful Tuli Asturias, one that is a bit older but still stands the test of time.
