The Chair

A chair’s function is not just to provide a place to sit; it is to provide a medium for self-expression. Chairs are about status, for example. Or signalling something about oneself. That’s why the words chair, seat and bench have found themselves used to describe high status professions, from academia to Parliament to the law. ~ Evan Davis

The Chair

I really liked the chairs Tobias Convair has at The Liaison Collaborative, so I built a whole outfit around one. Tobias, whose main goal in life is to bring classical modernism and architecture to SL, has given another  The animation engine can be a bit wonky but the poses are original and different. I certainly appreciated the initial female sit, which shows a woman with a casual and sexy power. Rowr.

My dress from Beanster Potato is a sophisticated choice for this look. She includes a HUD that allows color change for both the top and bottom. I was a little surprised by the materials included in the mesh when I put it on ultra mode but it’s not too bad. The textures are terrific, though, and the dress is sexy in shape and style. I was able to wear Rebel Hope’s sexy sandals with the outfit (thank you, Callie) and one of AvaGardner Kungler’s newest pieces, based on elvin inspiration.

A Chill in the Air

A cold wind blew in yesterday. As someone said on TV, “Summer ended five minutes ago.” For me that means the opportunity to get out clothes I haven’t seen in a while—kind of like having a whole new wardrobe. I pulled out designs from some of the best on the grid to keep me chic and warm.

A Chill in the Air

A rummage through the coat closet found this amazing leather and fur coat from mirai Jun. With the mix of sculpties and system pieces, it’s an ingenious design. I just FEEL warm when I see it.

I paired it with a sweater from LeeZu Baxter. Her dramatic dress designs are often featured in fashion shots, but not a lot is said about her more casual separate pieces. This sweater, a piece I purchased a while ago, would be a favorite in my RL wardrobe-the design is beautiful and complimentary, the materials are luxurious and warm.

A Chill in the Air

The pants are from Zaara—velour with a clever angled zippered pocket, clearly styled on jeans Zaara has seen around town. Boots are a new offering from Rebel Hope—suede scrunch boots made from sculpties. Rebel seems to be holding on in SL, thankfully, despite some incredible problems on the grid. Thankfully, LL was there to provide some help ;) Hair is a cap and ponytail set Elika Tiramisu offers with the natty cap being scripted for color change.
