Hi people, hope you are enjoying your weekend so far? I was rummaging around in FTV yesterday looking for a new dress and came across this amazing little number.  The black and gold geometric stripes of this dress were so eye-catching and took me hurtling back to the mid 70’s & early 80’s.  Not that I remember the mid 70’s but I was very heavily influenced by artists like Bowie and Bryan Ferry in my younger days, not only was the music awesome but these guys had a wonderful sense of style.  Actually, I have to admit now that I was deeply in love with Bryan Ferry he was so suave & sexy and always looked stylin’. Of course he was about 20 years too old for me lol, but these girly crushes when you are a kid make no sense at all do they?  Anyway, maybe this clip from Roxy Music will give you a feel for my meaning here.  Note Jerry Hall in the slinky outfit towards the end, and imagine me pushing her out of the way – he’s MINE!  Not sure about the mustache but heh, it’s Bryan I forgive him.

Anyway, enough waffling & back to the outfit.  The grid was really borked last night when I put this outfit together.  I took the skirt off to adjust the pants layer as they are pretty short and my ao kept showing unwanted thigh.  Sadly, no matter how much I tried, the grid would not put my skirt back on so I was forced to walk around without it.  However, it wasn’t a bad look at all, in fact, it was a smexy little jumpsuit or so I kept telling myself :D  You can also buy this dress in silver and black too – YAY!

I have paired the outfit with heels from Storm Schmooz, big sunglasses and hair by Kin to bring the look back to 2008. We can’t keep reliving our yoofs can we?

 I bought this dress a week or so ago and have been meaning to blog it ever since but I’ve had severe lag lately and even trying to rez an outfit has been a nightmare.  I’ve been lucky today and even managed this, a second post……go me!

This dress is, in a word marvelous, the skirt is bang up to the minute in style and not unlike !_Ce_Cubic effect’s Tiered Skirt, but it is actually a skirt with the prims attaching to the spine and hips as opposed to the prims being attached to the legs.

I adore the subtle sparkles scattered in swathes over the top half of the dress, it really stops the dress from  looking one dimensional and adds a special touch.  One word of warning though, those who dislike showing the cracks of their arses should avoid this one.  I usually don’t get my cheeks out for anyone but this dress is class, pure and simple, therefore, my arse is class too ;p

Credits after the break………..

Sophisticate

Ever have one of those Sophia Loren days?  OK, OK so I’m pretty much flat chested and my Brit accent is a far cry from the sultry tones of our Sophia but hey, my mic is broken, whose to know?

The coat (as I’m sure you all know) is by Muism, I totally want one in RL, but in SL with my constantly moving AO it gave revealing & unflattering glances of my bum, and well, it didn’t look good.  However, I can put up with that, and if it really gets you down,  a workaround is coming up…… read the next page to see how.

These gorgeous glasses are from KR by Kal Rau, I want to blog about him in my next post, all I can say is, I look forward to seeing more by him, right now he designs mainly for men but has a few women’s pieces too.  Kal also happens to be very friendly and approachable and that in itself is a plus in my book.  Psssst… Kal more womens clothes…. please?  :P
