World Cup Fever

June 26, 2010

I am a girl with a fever these days, and it comes from an unexpected place.  Not new shoes, not lingerie, not a trip to Paris.  My fever comes from South Africa– I have been entirely caught up in the World Cup this year.  This is a real first for me, since my idea of fun does not usually– or ever– involve organized sports.  But I am living in Europe now and I have been completely swept up with the passion and the style and the ohmygod of it all.

So, here it is– a love note and a GO GETUM to my boys of the USA, right before they face Ghana this evening.  Will be cheering for you, and will be looking good doing it!  🙂

Speaking of which… I am at the stadium in my own version of red white and blue. The credit for the enormous and completely BLUE foam finger goes to Reek. Genius work!  And the color is completely mod, so root for whichever team you like.  Another big LURVE goes out to duboo, and the darling Newreem, for some amazing work on these tights– and they are entirely apropos for the World Cup!

The dress is my WHITE, and is one of the most versatile dresses I have ever bought.  It is from Fawn, and rides the rail right between sexeh and indie SO well.  It also creates just the right amount of cleavage to show off the Yummy necklace!

Finally, the RED would have to be my hair, of course!  This time, it’s Clawtooth, and the reddy red shade is a new one for me, called Valentine.  It was a 50L grab at one point in the last couple weeks, and I am really taken with it.

So– that’s all for now.  Good luck to your own team, whoever they may be, and happy shopping! (during non-game hours only, of course…)

Winter Schlump

December 6, 2009

There is one good thing about being off the SL grid for a while– when you get back, you have a whole season’s worth of beautiful clothes to try on.  Today, I reveled in my accumulated mass of fashion, and fixated on creating a little Winter Schlump… you know, the kind of clothes you wear to hole up in with your friends, enjoying a hot chocolate spiked with whisky and watching old Christmas flicks.  The art of the cozy yet aesthetically pleasing schlump.

The first outfit was totally inspired by this Pr!tty hair, which was a new find for me in a tiny corner of Black Market– it is so dramatic without being fussy and formal, and it is BIG.  I love big!  And the rose-studded hair band is super sweet, no?  So sweet, in fact, that I couldn’t resist a little bad attitude…

I am also a little (err, a lot) in love with my winter whites here.  The cardigan is courtesy of Ohmai, and if she isn’t genius with creating fashion forward schlump, I don’t know who is!  The cardi here is just great, with a perfect length and hang to wear with a million things.  Complementing it here is a skirt I couldn’t love more, the Niniko skinny skirt.  Of course, leave it to Niniko to make the skinny skirt an outstanding cargo, devoid of the Mad Men sex kitten thing and all about looking cozy as can be without a hint of poof.  I adore the belt, and the sculpted pockets on the back are just GAWgeous.  To spice up the neutrals, I tossed on another tee from my incresingly tall pile of Gbberish stuff– such a statement piece!

One more thing– these BOOTS.  If I had them in rl, I just know I would have a hard time taking them off.  Ever.  Beetlebones at its best, they are quirky and comfy and so different!  The tassles make me smile like crazy, and I can’t wait to wear them in another color with another outfit and see what other magic they can spin.
