Fashion Disaster…

Oh dear, oh dear … life’s just about as chaotic as it can be right now. I’m not complaining, I like to keep busy, but I would like more SL playtime. My RL wardrobe is a nightmare and my SL inventory is equally disorderly. I will get around to organising them both (eventually), but in the meantime just about had enough time to put this post together featuring my favourite ‘on trend’ colour pallet of the moment … black and champagne. I reckon you’ll either love or hate this looks. Whether they float your boat, or you think they’re a disaster, I had fun putting this post together. I hope you enjoy the piccies :).

(PS – As so many of you liked the black cat from Film Noir, he’s making another appearance. Unfortunately, the cat isn’t from SL … he’s my Deviant Art pet … I think I will call him Hector.)

Last, but by no means least, I would like to shout out a huge thank you to Chance Greatrex, creator of ..::DARE::.. poses, for assisting me with this post. As well as the range of poses (and clothing items) you can purchase in-store, Chance has just started a commission service (full perm if required) and is already working with some big names in SL. I commissioned these poses from Chance and they’re now available for sale at Chance’s main store in Camorro. He is an absolute delight to work with, adorable, and hugely talented. In RL, Chance has a dance background and his knowledge of human movement is obvious when you see his poses which are, in my opinion, the most innovative in SL. Visit the ..::DARE::.. main store or IM Chance Greatrex in-world for details of his commission service.

One of the first things I do when I unpack and try on an item is see whether I can tint it. Tintable items offer so much versatility and you can create unique, particularly mix ‘n’ match looks using them. For non-prim items, right click your avatar and select Appearance. Then select the item you would like to tint under the Clothes heading. For prim items, right click over the item, select edit and then look for the Textures tab. Remember to make a copy before tinting!

Black and White and Read All Over…

For those residing in Britain, this will mean something to you: MP, expenses, cleaning a moat, a jar of pickle, and a bottle of a Laphroaig Malt Whiskey. For those that don’t live in Blighty and think I have totally lost the plot, this week we have witnessed the UK media in possibly it’s most frenzied state yet following revelations that some British politicians may have been supplementing their incomes with dubious expense claims (since qualified by them as ‘accounting errors’). Whether you agree with the arguments put forward or not, the carte blanche coverage of the issues and attacks on those involved can seem a little extreme and is typical of the British media’s handling of topical events. Of course, this has nothing to do with fashion, but as my blog often seem influenced by RL and I feel as if I’m overloaded with political sleeze this week, this post seems appropriate.
