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.
