Do you think bright clothes are tasteless ? OK well it’s no surprise that i’m back wearing gaudy colors; the ‘electric’ blue jacket from +grasp+ stirred my brain cells to that uncontrollable level where things must be bright for….well it’s nearly Christmas isn’t it !
Here’s a really modern style single breasted Chesterfield Coat. The main attraction is the large check design which takes this coat to another level from the traditional plain dull chesterfield colors. Like most coats of today its history goes back to the 1800′s, if you wanna dig deeper about the coat you can click here.
I was thinking about ‘wouldn’t it be wonderful to wear a Cape’ and then I happened upon a store I have never visited or heard of before called D I R A M and as I walked in the door I saw featured as a new item this Cape ! Talk about coincidence! I am not sure how practical it is for wearing as it is not possible to show the arms or hands but maybe at some function or other it could well be the talking point. There’s a range of colors & textures to choose from. Awesome !
Another surprise box from the Millo Copperfield store turned up , this time it’s a pair of new ‘womanizer’ jeans OMG! where does he get this name from! lol It’s hard to say exactly what’s going on now with separate MC stores in world for mesh, non mesh and a “Boss” brand for tattoos, shapes and exclusive mesh accessories. There’s clothes for tinies stuck in too ! It’s all kinda complicated but it seems to me there’s a good heart behind it all and the prices come close to giveaways which I think translates to something like we can be happy when wer’e wearing Millo gear!
Do you like to wear black ? One of the RL fashion/lifestyle blogs that I follow called Datsmastyle says there’s a resurgence in the all black gothic look on the streets. So here I am on the street in London (outside Kensington Station) but as you can see I couldn’t resist coloring my life a little !!
I used the SL MarketPlace to go search for ‘mesh materials’ cuz I wanted to look at the range of clothes now coming into the stores using the new ‘materials’ ready technology (or whatever it is). So far there seems to be only a handful of stores but I guess it takes a while to ‘changeover’ . It’s amazing that some stores still only sell prim (for primitive ?!) garments but yes there are reasons for everything; like I know prim clothes fit nicely under mesh ones.
There’s also some excitement about LL (Linden Labs) planning to add some extra attachment points to our poor SL skeletons so that mesh garments will fit even better than what can be achieved with the LiquidMesh; when’s this gonna happen i’m not sure.
I thought wearing a duster coat might be just the thing to wear to help out at the Iaswas coffee cafe located at ‘it all starts with a smile’ Sim but was disappointed - no customer ! – oh my, you dudes are missing out !
