Delhi Girl

A certain kind of chic girl can be found on the streets of New Delhi. Young, educated, chic, a bit materialistic, a little spoiled but definitely motivated and driven—she is the future.

This is our girl on her day off. With her cropped top from Daihn Gutter (which is omg- inexpensive), designer jean shorts, rolled up, from LeeZu Baxter, and her killer shoes from nut Barak, our girl rushes from one appointment to another—lunch, library, friends, shopping.

She still likes a little traditional touch, so she wears beads and bracelets with beautiful patterns, these made by Zaara Kohime. Her bag has her stuff—iPad, Vogue, water, sunscreen. (I have to pause to thank Erehwon Yoshikawa for the tip. She and I both have iPads in RL so she had to clue me in on this great gift for Coco group members.)

Her skin is the luscious new Ada by sanalyildiz Yalin. It’s great to see a dark skin so contemporarily made with a modern woman’s sensibilities, sexy highlighting, strong eyebrows and luscious lips. Her hair was styled by Truth Hawks, a new casually messy style just up in his store.

The shoes? She got these when she was in Europe, made by Nut Barak. They are perfect for a girl like her—beautifully made of the finest materials, high heeled to make her more statuesque, and perfect for showing off her fresh pedicure. Her father rolled his eyes when he saw the bills but he knows she has been studying hard.

I had to show another set of items I picked up at the RFL Clothing Fair and the Melt exhibition, combined to make a very interesting look.

Rise, Gentle Moon, Rise

Aradhana Voight has made a beautiful gold dress to benefit RFL as well as being sponsor of the absolutely gorgeous New Delhi sim built by Grace Loudon. With its amazingly shimmering gold textures (making gold look like this in SL is no easy feat) and beautiful silhouette, this Indian-inspired gown is magnificent and sleek for any occasion. Aradhana cleverly adds a feathery optional waist skirt that can also be worn as a separate piece so you can wear the top with pants.

I show it with this amazing skin from Juliette Westerburg for the Melt exhibition. Again, having the artists combine efforts based on a common theme was a great exercise for all of those who participated. Some, like Juliette really answered the call, in this case using her great skills in texturing to create magical and fantastic skins. I like seeing her go from her “everyday girl” fashions to this more artistic and fanciful skin. It shows the girl has some chops and can think outside that same old box. The hair is a crazy cool piece I bought at Hair Fair last year made by Miranda Milestone. I had never had the opportunity to use until now. It needed an equally cool look to make it all make sense.
