Geek Chic

Not everyone who comes in to SL comes here for dancing at clubs or finding romance. In fact, many residents use SL for other pursuits, such as exploring it for library sciences or education. Putting on wings or tight leather pants might not be their cup of chai. But in SL there is no reason not to express your fashion sense.

This look I put together might give some ideas. My little librarian is in no way lacking appeal or fashionability. On top I have a cute turtleneck from Aranel Ah and below, brand new boy pants that I have fashioned for a Jane from myvegancookbook Bolissima. Aranel does the basic black turtleneck well with very nice conical cuffs and an understated prim neck (which says a lot because I have a lot of turtlenecks with BIG necks). It’s cashmere all the way, baby.

The fashionable, retro pants are bound to be a favorite for both men and women as they have such a unique and cute silhouette. Carefully drawn and so cleverly given prims between the bunched waist and the tabbed cuffs, these are a brilliant new addition to SL wardrobes.

With this look, it’s all about the accessories. First our librarian throws on a favorite scarf to bring color to the ensemble. Then she tops it with the terrific square glasses from Guu Nishi with their color change script (so yes, Ms. Dewey Decimal, you can show a little flair with yellow frames). A cute little artsy ring from Nuala Shippe, who has sadly closed shop, completes this eclectic look.

Eponymous Trenchmouth passed me a set of his Kool Kats, which are tagged “unisex,” and my librarian is a girl who likes practical shoes that are also stylish. These have a styling shape, funky color combos, and retro styling. Let me note that Epy’s shoes are built from standard prims, which is in itself a notable accomplishment. He has developed his own textures, his own prims, and he is the men’s shoe maker of choice by the best dressed in SL (including me).

Sweater Weather

I was poking around the other day, looking for a bunny head I had seen on someone  (don’t ask) and ended up back at yumyum. I love yumyum. Everything there is so cute without being twee, pretty and sweet without being cloying. I just can’t handle twee, so that’s saying a lot. Even the bunny head appeals to me.

A Chill in the Air

I stumbled in past the many plants in pots and glass containers of which I have too many, past the sculpty antique chairs, past the wreaths (two of which I bought), past the herbs in gardening boxes, and found myself in front of the most fantastic sweaters. So of course, I got one. Between the amazing texture, the perfectly done sculpties, the pure coziness of it, I am just thrilled. And this is again, a perfect example of how toraji Voom makes cute without crossing to twee.

A Chill in the Air

I found a pair of jeans from Dawn Memorial that matched the sweater well and were chic enough to go with the sweater. And then the other to-die-for in this ensemble are the boots from JB Gazov. I have already explained my love of all things J’s, and these boots reinforce those feelings. These are the ankle boots for a knee-high boot—I got the multicolor version. They also come with two heels.. a stiletto and a more square version. OK, yes, I love these boots.

A Chill in the Air

Finally, I dressed up with a brand new loose updo from Truth Hawks, a beautiful skin from Lorac Farella—one of my favorites, and jewelry from Maeve Mortlock and Nuala Shippe. I feel chic and warm and just right.

A Chill in the Air

With the smell of burning leaves in the air and the sound of leaves crunching underfoot:
