Animal Instincts…

Well life has just been hectic of late (hence the lack of recent postings). I’ve been away with Sugar Daddy again, but now we’re back at the Californian ‘des res’ for a welcome slice of home life before setting off on our travels again next week. I’ve had a selection of animal print items in my inventory for a good while now and I’ve been meaning to write a piece about them. As I’ve been having such a wild time of it, now seems like the appropriate moment to do just that! I find animal prints awfully difficult to style; they seem to make such a statement and its so easy to overdo it. This post has been a real challenge for me so I hope you like it! (No animals were harmed in the making of this post ;))

1. Tesla Hylda Boots in Brown Snake (L$399) – get them here

2. When I saw the textures on the reverse of this leotard, I just knew that it had to be photographed from behind. However, the shaping and detail on the front is just as good. It’s totally outrageous, but glorious! If you’re too chicken to bare all, my advice would be to combine it with some long boots, leggings and a jacket.

4. This bag is truly FabulouS. It has lovely detailing on the front and the reverse has some dollar bills and a credit card inserted into the ribbon (nice touch). The pack comes with 3 animal skin finishes – Crocodile, Stag and Snake. FabulouS Hustla Bag in Croco (Fatpack) (L$150) – get it here

5. These Stunner Revolver Boots boots are usually L$450, but right now you can pick them up for the special price of L$150 at this location only and for a limited time.  Go get ’em Cowgirl!

Maitreya’s most recent release, their sculpted top and belt combo, is the latest in a line of brilliant creations Second Life Designers have given us incorporating the use of sculpties to create draped fabrics.  If you’re a follower of SL fashion, you’ll have seen this piece populating all the major blogs and you probably already have it in your virtual wardrobe!  I’ve seen it combined into so many looks by my very talented blogging peers, but when I saw it and the other draped pieces I’ve collected recently, it inspired me to put together this neoclassical post.  I hope that you enjoy my interpretation *smiles*…
