Suits. How much do I talk about the need for good women’s businesswear in SL? A lot. Yes, I know, you’re all tired of it…but you’re not all tired of seeing me in suits, so I’m gonna keep going. A friend of mine pointed me at Mutresse the other day. It’s a brand new store with not much in it yet, but Eeky Cioc is making suits, and they’re perfect. They come in a snillion colors, the texturing is gorgeous (seriously, so gorgeous I even bought the pink one for my alt…pink, you guys, because it’s such a light, shimmery color it made me giddy), the weighting hangs beautifully, and the fit is excellent. From what I am told, they’re all original mesh, and the work is really, really good. I wish I’d fatpacked while they were on sale. Go. Suit up. You won’t regret it.
In other news, bloggers have been all over the study Froukje Hoorenbeek released last week for Dutchie, and rightly so. It’s absolutely beautiful work. But let’s be honest, we bloggers like to get our naughty on, and I wanted to show that the Dutchie study isn’t just about the Adult version. The PG version of the chairs look just the same, yes, but that’s not what makes them exceptional. First, they’re actually business-appropriate. There are no animations here that would be unacceptable in your office or home — no cuddles or make-outs. There are some very nice wine- and coffee-drinking poses (the chairs dispense objects), but the chairs are perfectly work-safe. Even better, they resize and the animations still work. If the chair is too big, scale it down some and you’ll still be able to use it.
