No really, it does. Mouth “olive juice” silently to a stranger on the street and they’ll follow you home. Carry some mace with you, just in case.
So I’m home sick today from work, and after exhausting myself with Miss Marple episodes on Netflix, what else could I do but take a record of what my pixels are wearing? The look isn’t very Agatha Christie, but I think the hat over one eye is a tad mysterious, don’t you?
I tend to feel especially proud of myself when I manage to fit difficult prim attachments to my body. Take this belt from *COCO* for example. It’s pure hotness, and I love how well it rides low on the hips. More difficult still was this fabulous Homburg hat from Apollon. Which hair would work? How do I not make it look like a ship docking on my head? So with a bit of nudging and some crossed fingers (the hats are no-copy, so you have only one to work with; if you make a mistake, tough cookies!) I think it came together rather nicely.
Some of my favorite pointy-toed shoes are the Serenity heels from Aphrodite Creations. But where is Aphrodite Outlander? I miss her releases, and as far as I can tell, her shop hasn’t changed a bit since Christmas. I hate to see talented designers abandon the grid, but we all know how RL takes precedence. And speaking of amazing designers, can I send a shout out to Annette Voight of Decoy for making some of my very favorite jeans on the grid? I constantly buy new denim, but hers are always at the top of my list. For some reason I just love my legs underneath that shading.
And here comes a big “thank you” to Maitreya for releasing a turtleneck that doesn’t make me feel like a dorky 4th grader or a Steve Jobs wannabe. It looks pretty chic underneath the perfect grass green of the Aitui Sexy Buttoned Down.
Props to some rad fashion bloggers, Uma and Luna, for inspiring me to go out and buy some of these items 🙂
