More Houndstooth

A few more houndstooth things for you today, of the non-coat variety.

I’m smitten with this hat, and the attached boy-short hairstyle is adorably unisex.  Unfortunately, it’s no-mod, which really disappoints me, as there aren’t any strong red shades available for the hair.  However, if you’re not a redhead, there are lots of great blonde and brunette shades available via blue-box menu.  The hat itself is also color- and pattern-changeable.

The skirt has great movement, and is a very flattering length, hitting above the knee without being scandalously › Continue reading

Fishnets fishnets fishnets fishnets.  They’re possibly my favorite legwear in-world, bringing vintage sexiness with a touch of bad girl.  Annyka Bekkers of Blowpop recently released new fishnets, to much fanfare.  She’s put a lot of work into perfecting these.  I thought I’d see how some of my old favorites compare.

Check out the pelvic area, the general flow of the fishnet pattern, the side seams, the ankles, and the feet.  All of these are made well, but one pair in particular stands out for me.  Also, I don’t want to take over the whole feed, but feel free to click on the pic to go to my flickr and see side and rear views of the fishnets.

Second Date

Fleur recently released the Second Date dress.  I love this dress — it’s very much like something I’d wear in RL.  The above-the-knee hemline is playful and fresh for summer, and balances out the plunging neckline quite nicely.  A wide black sash accentuates the waist, complimenting the hourglass female figure.  It’s Roslin Petion’s first solo endeavor as a clothing designer, and wow!  it’s very skillfully done; I never would have guessed.  The shading is delicate and subtle, with no visible seams. 

I’m also wearing a Fleur skin, the Strawberry Parfait 2.  It has a distinctly hand-drawn feel, with a youthful, fresh innocent face.  The lips are full and pouty, and the hand-drawn freckles are playful.  Fleur skins are currently 50% off, but I don’t know how long the sale will last, so hurry, hurry, hurry!
