We haven’t done a collaboration post in such a long time, and we had been talking about doing so for ages. Originally we were supposed to do one with Anessa as well, and we definitely will do that soon, but as she was busy we decided that doing a post on her latest A-Line skirts by DCNY was like having her there in spirit. The background item in the shot is an amazing belted shelf by Pilot. The belted idea is so brilliant, and I can seriously see DIY nuts from all over, re purposing their leather in such an attractive way. The shelf is available at FaMESHed, and there is only a day or so left to get it there. I was, up until last night a FaMESHed blogger, but with so many commitments to other things, I did not feel I was posting on them enough per month, so I removed myself. I hope that by doing so, and leaving the guilt baggage behind, I can really focus on mixing them in a lot more often. I even made a spread sheet last night with names of as many stores as I could think of, as well as events, so that I can be sure I am spreading my blogging around more. I never thought I would have to do that, but definitely gone are the days when we waited weeks, sometimes months for releases – and I for one am so glad of this, yay for creativity being so plentiful in Second Life.
The skirts both Whimsy and I are wearing are DCNY’s item for My Attic @ The Deck. The skirts come in a bazillionity colours and prints, ok maybe not that many, but it will seem so. Especially if you buy them as the three packs they are being sold as especially for the event. So you get three awesome skirts for 95L, and there are solids as well as prints, which will make them a definite go to skirt for many many looks. One of my favourites is actually the bamboo print, and Evion did a perfect post on that over HERE on her blog the other day. Whimsy is also showing another of the great prints, the Poppy version not only here on my blog, but also on her own HERE .
The tops we are both wearing, and who can blame us as they fit so well, are by The Secret Store, and are at this months Collabor88. The top is a damask weave, which is actually historically one of the strongest weaves there is – it is why it is so popular with curtains and bedding, that of course and its beauty. I really love the sweetness of this top, with the thin belt and the collar, it just works so well with many looks. I had to fiddle around a lot to get the necklace I am wearing to look as close as I could to being fit well under the collar, and I think I did ok. The necklace is a new release from Yummy. It is a charm necklace in the sense of good luck charms/talismans. The creativity that went into this is super, and I just adore its eccentricity, which is a lot of what draws us to Yummy and all of the Tableau stores to be honest.
The socks are also collabor88 items, they are by fashionably dead, and they are hybrid socks, as in the socks are system and the tops are mesh. Perfect standard sizing fit, and they are just way cool with this skirt and especially with the 77 loafers by Treads. I am feeling all sorts of Nerdy Chic today in this look. The hair tops it off. The Babette style is Mina hairs My Attic item for this session. The bun is adorable and the blunt bangs just give it a quirkyness I really like, especially with wearing glasses for the post. Soft tendrils frame the face, so you don’t look too serious in the look, it is all win.
