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.

Folly

Hello everyone! Another week goes by and it is another color for the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  This weeks color is “folly”, which falls between crimson and rose. For most of you, that’s a fancy way of saying hot pink!

This was a tough challenge, because hot pink is definitely not found in many men’s stores at all.  That meant a trip to Schadenfreude, which has every color under the rainbow.  Well, under an elephant actually!  You’ll see what I mean when you get there.

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!

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.
