Sometimes I get a little to much “pretty” in my system at one time … and this is what happens.
“Perhaps it will seem to you that the sunshine is brighter and that everything has a new charm. At least, I believe this is always the result of a deep love, and it is a beautiful thing. And I believe people who think love prevents one from thinking clearly are wrong; for then one thinks very clearly and is more active than before. And love is something eternal–the aspect may change, but not the essence. There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning. The lamp was there and it was a good lamp, but now it is shedding light too, and that is its real function. And love makes one calmer about many things, and in that way, one is more fit for one’s work.”
– Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890)
What I’m Wearing:
I’ve been purposefully buying a lot of white, pearl, gray, beige, and other pale tones in the past months. There’s a side of me that gravitates towards saturated colors and darker, more mysterious palettes, but I just as eagerly reach for the innocence and femininity of a light, desaturated look.
I think this personal trend plays into my adoration of antique & retro kitsch. One of my favorite small jewelry shops is Yummy by Polyester Partridge. This sweet necklace could be a meaningful collection of baubles from your grandmother, or a recent etsy.com purchase. It’s one of my very favorite recent purchases, and there’s more where it came from; so go check it out on Tableau.
Speaking of favorite things, this sweet skirt by Nylon Outfitters and the short tweed jacket by AOHARU beg for futher outfit wrangling. I want more tweed in my real life! The top was a group gift from Pig, and I want more colors! I love how Pig tops are shaded to accentuate the tiny-titted ladies. Show it off, chicas.
Have lovely day!
Outfit details below the cut:
I am so amped about this outfit! It’s like, totally tubular! I was refusing to buy this AOHARU top on principal (the principal that all girls who tied their button downs were bimbettes and we should hit them with our ‘sneaks). But then I saw it in this boss plaid and ate my words!
Of course to be a little bit 80s, you need a lot of hair! This super-simple style from Nylon Outfitters made my day! You don’t need 45 sculpts to look like a commercial for Aquanet. And for feckssake, it’s called Janet.
Get the Fashion 411 below the cut:
I’m addicted to brilliant, sunny rooms. I find that a pale canvas bests sets off even the most subtle colors and textures. In real life, I work in the lower level of our building (aka “the Dungeon”). With no windows or natural light around me all day, I take what cheerful bits of daylight I can—even in SL. Ah, the magic of Windlight.
I broke a promise to myself. I wanted to wait a while before buying anything in SL. I think I lasted 4 days. … Personal best?
I’ve been aching for this shirt from COCO ever since I first saw it. The Whippet & Buck bustier was purchased as a spiteful bonus. My boyfriend didn’t like it in photos, so I decided to prove him wrong. And since this is my blog and I can do whatever the hell I want, I know I won that little disagreement. By the same logic, I also am certain he will be ironing my clothes for me later while wearing nothing but humble pie. Where’s that drooling emoticon when you need it?
I realize it’s considered a breach of blogger etiquette to feature clothing no longer available, but like I said, this is my blog and I make the rules. So unless you’re lucky enough to find them at a yard sale, these Last Call pants are going to silently torment you from my flickr feed.
“Where’s the beef?” Yeah, I know I’m really hungry when my mouth waters at a sculpty cow where bovines are considered sacred. I need to go grab something to eat!
Welcome to my favorite look in like–well–a few weeks anyway! I was going to name this post “Horny Girl”, but it just wouldn’t fit the aesthetic, despite it being amusing.
I feel more feminine in this outfit than I did in my skimpy lingerie. Perhaps it’s the girlish charm of the ruffled skirt, the charming face, or the heart-shaped lipstick. Whichever element it is, I’m basically in love with my cute lil’ self.
