Menswear Fashion Week 2012 – #2

Hello everybody!  Menswear Fashion Week 2012 continues with a peek at another exciting store – RFyre!  This is actually one of my favorite stores for some great costumes and RP gear.  I remember shopping at RFyre four years ago and getting goosebumps from the various outfits.  It is such a wonderful surprise that I still ooh and aah over their new designs these days.

Here are four new outfits from RFyre.  I think that two are more RP-ish in delicious black.  They are wonderful without the huge capes  that have never flex’d well enough for my tastes.  The other two outfits are great looks that I certainly would wear clubbing or hanging out with friends.

Avacado

Hello everyone!  What a fabulous color this week, and what a wonderful time to do a darker color.  This week, we have “avacado”, which is, of course, a darker green.  My first instinct was to look for an military camouflage, but then I thought that would be too cliche.  And then Kal Rau released a new mesh leather jacket, which I absolutely love!  It’s also my first mesh clothing item too!

Lazybum – New Items

Hello everybody!  The very talented Luciano Enoch released new items at Lazybum today!  The Ringmaster jacket comes in six different colors and definitely looks great for some circus outfits!  Also released are the Cowl Collar tank in six different colors which I think this is really fun.  The new Glitter Briefs come in eight colors and look fantastic as well!

Alice Blue

Hello everyone!  The next color for the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge is “alice blue”.  It is such a close shade to white that I knew this one would be a difficult color.  I started shopping early this week, and I’m glad.  After six weeks, my eyes are opening to the huge lack of color in men’s fashion. The usual palette seems to be mostly dark colors such as black, dark browns, navy blues, heavy greens, etc.

My original plan was to create an outfit that was blue and white.  This polo shirt from Redgrave is the perfect fit (plus it comes in some terrific other colors too).  However, finding a pair of white pants turned into a disaster.  You see, I have a huge aversion to white pants in SL because they just don’t look right to me.  I have yet to find a pair of white pants that don’t look like big giant pool noodles.  Luckily, these pants from Entente saved the day!

Iron

Hello everybody!  This week’s selection for the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge is “iron”.  When I first saw the color, I first thought of a rust color, but no, this is the color of steel.  Taking inspiration from that, I put together an outfit that is strong, yet fashionable.  These terrific pants from Beck & Carter were the perfect item.  I would definitely wear something like this in RL to go clubbing or a night on the town!

Electric Indigo

Hello everybody!  For the 3rd week of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, the color is “electric indigo”.  I have to admit that I had to do a bit of research first to figure out exactly where “electric indigo” falls on the color wheel.  It is between blue and violet.  Surprisingly, when I saw the color for this week, I knew exactly what to get!  The skinny jeans from Emery!  They fit perfectly, and it was a simple matter of finding the perfect shirt as well.  This week was MUCH easier than last week, and I’m very pleased with the result.  It doesn’t look like an Easter Basket, does it?

Coral

Hello everybody!  Here’s my second week with the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  This week’s color is “coral”.  And this wasn’t an easy color at all!  It’s definitely a spring color and spring is still around the corner.  I did find a few items in a few stores, but they just didn’t work for me.  So I decided to cheat a bit and tint a white shirt.  Not withstanding that, I really enjoyed this challenge!  Two done, fifty to go!

Scarf

Greetings, everyone!  There was a slight breeze moving through my apartment today and it made me a bit chilly.  I wrapped a blanket around my shoulders and realized that a scarf would be perfect.

So here is a great little number from INDI Designs, perfect for this cool weather.

Around The Corner

Hi everybody!

Whew, the holidays are finally over and I can get back into the swing of things again.

I came across this wonderful jacket from Scars. For some reason, I’m really enjoying jackets right now. It must be the winter. I matched it with a new pair of jeans from NSD and my new favorite boots from GOS (hoping I will be buried in them!).

Season’s Greetings 2011

I love making my annual Happy Holidays card, and I love seeing the cards that everyone else makes too.  It really is fascinating to see how much creativity and effort that people put into them.  Other than Hallowe’en, I can’t think of any other holiday that get people so excited in Second Life.  There is so much to do for winter, from new wardrobes to new adventures to new landscaping on your sim.

My holiday cards are usually generic, because I know that not everyone celebrates the same holiday every December.  Last year, my focus was the Parson Brown snowman from What Next.  This year, I went a little bit Brokeback.  Anyhoo, please enjoy your holidays, stay safe, don’t drink and drive, and remember those people who are less fortunate that you.
