First off: this post is meaningless without video, because I recognize that not everybody grew up in the 80s. Go enjoy some of the decade’s finest.
I read on Ziki Questi’s blog that someone has finally built Jordan’s beautiful Petra in-world. And that, of course, meant that I had to get my Eldritch on, strut around while a ghost-faced goddess glares from a temple doorway, and rock a white linen suit like a Eurotrash degenerate on holiday.
You guys, that is easier said than done in SL.
Finding a white suit is a hellish chore. Now, the last time I blogged, I mentioned The Secret Store’s beautlfully-crafted blazer. I am still completely in love with it…but it doesn’t come in white. #sadtrombone But Hucci makes two really exceptional blazers, one open and one closed. This works very nicely.
I still have yet to find trousers that fit me as well as the Elate trousers. I should have fatpacked them when they were at C88 way back when, because I get a lot of use out of them. They hang correctly on my hips, and don’t give me the really huge booty that certain other brands give me…and the texture just looks so good.
Under the jacket, my shirt is from mon tissu. Truth: it doesn’t actually fit under the jacket — I had to photoshop some bits out in the sleeves — but it looks good, and it’s such a beautiful shirt.
As a side note: I did not actually blog these shoes when they came out, and I should have. Sorry: I’ve been super-busy. Get up, get out, and go get these shoes right now. Mr.Poet has made mesh wingtips that are beyond perfection. The textures are lush, gorgeous, realistic. They come with a HUD that allow you to recolor everything from the sole to the aglets (you know. The ends of the laces). They’re designed for men, but resize perfectly for women. And they’re L$290. Seriously. Why are you still reading my blog? Go buy some shoes.
