I noticed when going to add my picture today, I have been doing a lot of red/black looks lately. It really is a favourited combination, not just of me, but a lot of the grid, as they are often the best selling colours of many brands. I remember back in the early days of my SL, that you had to release, red, black , leather and lace, and then you got all the customers, because events at clubs were often themed around those colours and textural styles.
I am wearing the Ison Structural corset that now comes in fits for the Slink body and Maitreya body as well as standard sizing, much joy. It is part of this round of MIX and definitely worth running over to Ison to get…mind you when is it ever not the time to run over to Ison to get something.
I paired it up with the sheer knotted tee from Sn@tch that I grabbed the other day, this is an appliers tee, and the great thing about sheer plain items with appliers is that if you use the alpha mask options on the Slink body hud, you can make them non sheer, for different looks. That is why I bought them, because I can use them as solid shirts. In this case though, as my breasts were covered by the corset, I embraced the sheer.
These pants are also by Ison, and while they fit under the corset in this pose, you will get a bit of clipping with a more moving ao. Mind you we do so much standing around in SL that I am fine with that, as the pants were made a lot earlier than the corset was, and they are standard sizing…so depending on the size you wear, you could probably go a size down and not have that at all, me though I wear xxs perfectly, so no where to go from that :).
I pulled out an old favourite pair of shoes. These are the margot ballet flats from Slink. One of the first mesh flat shoes she made I think. They also come with an off and on option for the ballet slipper wrap around straps, so that you can wear them like this as a casual but elegant slip on. They are so pretty, and look wonderful with pants, and the colours of them are so pretty, especially in the lighter colours.
The fantasy collective items are from Cheeky Pea, and these are some beautiful pieces. The large mirror, that has that marvelous aged look to the glass, the lovely hanging lamps with candles ( I edited them larger) and the sumptious chair in the wicker that you just want to snuggle in with a good book. At the moment it is holding my bag from Rowne, that I think is so cute with its hanging open look. I might see if one of my puppies from the latest arcade will fit in that.
