In Between

A favorite little hang out of mine is Industry, where I go to hear great musicians and DJs and hang out with some nice folks with great avatars. Cate Footman started the club, built by Jessyca Teardrop, and it’s a fun eclectic space, so when Cate came up with the idea of doing a fashion event, I was excited to see what came up. Opening April 12, it will prove to be pretty fun set of fashion, all inspired by a list of songs.

Lexi Morgan chose “Heart of Glass” by Blondie for her inspiration, putting a funky graphic zigzag in several colorways on a cute sleeveless minidress. With a zip up the front, it’s funky and cute and portrays what seems to be a pop-culture dress for a very pop-culture song.

Caelen Hancroft was also inspired by “Heart of Glass” and made literal hearts of glass, which she dangles from a linked chain. It includes a fantastic HUD for changing textures and colors on the hearts, beads and chain components. Shoes from KenadeeCole, featured at the 100 Block, are a perfect match to the dress style.

Mina Nakamura has this brilliant hair at 100 Block, perfect for this look and reminiscent of a cut that Debbie Harry once had with bangs artfully framing the face and super straight hair. It’s actually a challenge to make hair like this look right in SL and Mina was up to the challenge. A skin with a beautiful glow and great brows for blondes (which is always tough), Shyla Diggs’ skin for Uber is just gorgeous with a bit of blush and gloss added. I love how Shyla does eye makeups—so subtle with beautiful colors.

Wearing Warm

My friend KK IM’d me the other day and told me she needed recommendations for things to wear for skating, holiday shopping, keeping warm, and generally being a snow bunny. So this will be the first of a series I will do on “Wearing Warm.”

Wearing Warm

We all know that SL finds its home on computers spread out in offices in warmer climates. In fact, a lot of the residents of SL never see snow. They find the whole idea of snow exotic and fun. So let me tell you about how it gets squeaky in REALLY cold weather, how it is fluffy or slushy, how it can drop in big glorious glops of flakes or in dry flurries of twinkledust.

Wearing Warm

I pulled out an older outfit from Myllie Writer, one she had marketed last year (and is now in her discount area ;)) to show you one possible ensemble. I have always loved this sweater/skirt set, and it comes in several combinations of colors so you can wear many color combos of sweaters and tights (and at a reasonable price). In poking around Persona today to confirm it was still available, I also purchased a ton of poses, some of which you see here.

Wearing Warm

I am showing this outfit with hair named after ME. I just get so happy when that happens. And I feel so honored Truth Hawks would honor me with his great work. (Je suis arrivee!) This tousled ponytail compliments the casualness of the outfit and reminds me how windblown hair can get in the winter.

Wearing Warm

A scarf from Antonia Marat and darling furry boots from Lexi Morgan keep me warm and a luscious skin from Monicuzza Babenco (named “Snow”—go figure), make me feel all snuggly.
