Countdown is Progressing…………now get that song out of your head. It is Boxing Day Down Under, and Eating Day down here was wet and much cooler than years past. It was a lovely day though spent with my Mum, and nibbling on delightful foodstuffs throughout the day. I hope you all had a wonderful Eating Day with your loved ones. The day before was Anessa Stine’s Rezday, so to all those that also celebrated rezdays this week – there are a lot that join over the holidays, what with new pcs and all that jazz, I hope you had much fun, and had people that adore you and are grateful you joined SL as much as we are that Anessa did many moons ago.
A bit of a MichaMi roundup today, as soon as I saw the Blanche tuxedo jacket, I got all excited about looks I would want to do. I had to size up and size down to achieve maximum mix and match potential, but with the greatness that is standard sizing, that was achievable. I layered the fabulous jacket over the recently released Kiaa dress. The dress is a lovely mini with side panels and ruched front effect – the ruching is stronger at the torso. The dress can be casual or dressy, dependent on how you wear it, and what you wear it with. I also added the lovely tilda leggings underneath, that are also mesh. The leggings will not fit under if you don’t have the room, but the look can of course be recreated with system leggings as well. It will all just depend on what sizes you have to play with, for a good look body wise.
As it was a tuxedo, you need a bowtie right, so I went with the darling bowkerchief that is the BOOM item for this session of My Attic @ The Deck. There are two packs available, one is pink and white colour options, and the other is red and black. Then there are various lengths and shine options, so you get a lot of bowkerchiefs to choose from. The other outfit is a much older top, that was a two part dress look. I really like how this as a two part look was constructed, giving it a really professional feel. Then being able to wear the top like this, in a more casual mix, makes it a must have item. The pants are actually much older MichaMi pants, and so comfy to wear, they are system with sculpted leg attachments. They even looked cute under the dress until I changed.
The hair I am wearing is from Ploom. The first is Mosch from My Attic, and the second is one of the 12 day of Christmas styles that they recently had out, one new one each day, that was a great lot of hair at one time, and an amazing amount of work. The Mosch style has a colour change hud for the band, and I really like the high loose bun look of the style, it has an adult Pebbles kind of look to it. Peyton is a lovely high ponytail, both styles will definitely wear well with lots of mesh clothing.
The other accessories worn are the necklaces and bag from Maxi Gossamer at Collabor88/December. The patience necklaces are beautiful watch necklaces in silver or gold, and in two different lengths. I really like this idea, and this look was really popular mid 90’s, I think we all got jealous of nurses for a while there. The bag comes with different length straps, shoulder or hand, as well as velvet or sequin texture. I especially like the velvet with the cross on the front option.
The shoes I have on are the new boots by Bax Coen. The boots have two options of coloured leather/suede in each pair, and then a number of edging colours all available via a click on the boot for the drop down menu. I took a pic of some of both options, as you can see you get a lot of boot for your buck. The other very cool thing about the boots, is that you get a hide cuff option, which allows for a sleek fit under cuffs of pants. Make sure you try on the demos of these, because they will be a great addition to your booties collection.
The Countdown set is available at My Attic @ The Deck. it comes with 4 rug poses and one pose for each number wall. The number walls are texture change to either silvery/grey or red options and the grey tints really well. The standing poses used are from the Interval set by Status that is also a My Attic @ The Deck item, so be sure to grab all of those for only 95L while the event is open.
