It’s funny how some things in SL remind you of other things. Weird neural connections.

This outfit by Kru Flan reminds me of the movie 200 Cigarettes, which takes place on New Year’s Eve in NYC in the 80s. The reason is the guitar case and the punk look—the plaid and the dark stockings, the collar, the piercings up the ear. Kru Flan really hit on a great punk look.

Kru includes some awesome accessories with this outfit: a guitar case with pose, a clove cigarette (yes, clove!) with appropriate “ashing” animation and a pack of cigarettes. You get the collar, the bracelets, the belt—all in one outfit. You also get some boots which are not so fabulous, but replace them as I have, and you have a complete punk look, quick.

I show it with spiky hair from Zero Style and skin from Lorac Farella. Plus my ever favorite boots from Fallingwater Cellardoor.

Rock n Roll

I am finally out of this winter thing. Actually what pushed me out of it was a visit to a store.

Rock n Roll

The neon busy graphics, bold name, and sort of grunge kitty “feel” of Ivey Deschanel’s store always made me think perhaps it wasn’t a place for me. I  just don’t do that sort of grunge neko thing very well. However, I went in the other day and found that Ivey does a little more than sassy kitty clothing, and I liked what I saw.

Rock n Roll

This outfit from Ivey is glam and sexy and elegant all at once. The elaborate textures in the pants, as if burnt into a velvet, accentuate my long legs and curves with the sculpties that bottom out the legs in a flare. The jacket has a great bolero cut with a tied front—very modern and urban. But the sleeves, made of sculpties, have that decadent featheriness (without the cliched PS fur that everyone else uses) that makes this outfit truly glam. The rich depth of the top with its hand-drawn wrinkles and sexy low-cut back (shown here without the jacket) create a slinky and sensuous camisole. The look is complete and whole and ideal. Ivey’s system piece work is clean and well-done with great seams and edges. Her textures in this outfit are delicious.

Rock n Roll

Sachi Vixen has long been making skins, but her Portia line is a recent addition that once again displays her fine talents as an artist. I especially like the eye makeup on this skin with its subtle rainbow hues, entirely appropriate for an elegant glam girl—not over the top but pushing the edge. And her sexy décolletage is not over the top. I just don’t need to look like I am “enhanced.”

Carol Brady’s Got It Goin’ On

Remember Carol Brady? OK, not the Carol of the early Brady shows with her sweet smiles and gently back-combed bob. I am talking about the Carol of the later years—the one with the sexy shag haircut tipped with blonde, the tight jeans, the one who was clearly a predecessor to Stacy’s Mom (who “has got it goin’ on”), the one who you knew sharpened her act because she sensed Mike’s midlife crisis coming on and she had better step up. (And step up, she did. She was a minx, Carol Brady.)

Carol Brady

I got Bax Coen’s new brown Prestige Boots today, and I knew they were just what Carol would wear if Carol were in SL. No Marcia, Marcia, Marcia could pull these babies off. These are boots for a Woman (hear her roar).

I conveniently copied the jibber jabber my professional fitted Red Prestige Boots spewed out and fed it to my brown boots and *poof* they fit! That is what I am talking about! Custom fitting in the click of a button. Then click, delicious chocolate decadence (because these babies come in 4 colors of brown leather—camel, cognac, mocha, and chocolate).

Carol Brady

I wear a seemingly conservative dress from Ms. chocolate Arashi of couverture. With it’s Lilly Pulitzer-inspired paisley texture and historically accurate silhouette, Mrs. Brady would have found this ensemble “groovy.”

Carol Brady

The hair.. gosh.. it curled in sensuous fringes down her long neck and curled up around her face in sweet spikes. I am wearing a brilliant almost-reproduction from Rei Gully with beautiful little earrings from Tiffy Vella (jeweler extraordinaire) and a beautifully textured scarf from Milla Michinaga (who wisely flipped from the rather thankless work of blogging to the more exciting world of virtual fashion design and has done so incredibly well).

Are you ABSOLUTELY SURE you want your readers reading this, Hamlet? ;) (Thank you for the mention. The hug in SF made ALL the difference.) (And thanks, Chestnut, for the recommendation.)

Flirty

I have always liked this outfit. I bought it a while back on a Japanese sim and always loved putting it on

Flirty

It’s short and flirty. Piah Noel has done a great job of making a “schoolgirl” outfit that is not so blatantly schoolgirl. With its cute floral skirt and three-quarter length sleeved knit sweater, it’s perfect for running around town.

I imagined it would look perfect with bangs (these from Zero Style)…

… and knee high boots (these from Enkythings).
