I was chatting with my friend Fann Hyun, about the fashion industry in SL®, about how we as models have to embrace different styles and make them our own. We both agreed the same is true with bloggers. I really admire bloggers like Ana Lutetia and Milla Michinaga (though she is not blogging anymore). They are both true chameleons of style, but somehow their identities are not lost in the process. I decided I should step out of my comfort zone and experiment from time to time. Well, today is one of those experimental days.
The dollarbie hairstyle from Philotic Energy in celebration of Australia Day gave me a perfect excuse to try something different. Punk rock is definitely not my turf, but I love this hairstyle so I decided to give it a try. I digged in my inventory and found this red leather jacket from Aoharu I picked up during a sale a while back. It’s a men’s jacket, but the prims were easily modifiable to fit my body. Then I looked for a grungy t-shirt. Livewire from Sweetest Goodbye seemed most appropriate. The jeans were the easiest part of the outfit. For shoes, I went with Ving Boots, a new release from Shiny Things. I added other casual elements like biker gloves from LeeZu!, a silver pendant necklace from Izumiya, and a ring with spikes from Chaos Lotus. For earrings, I decided to wear two different earrings. The bag I chose to carry is the GYM Bag from LeLutka.
Perhaps it’s too cliché, but I quite like the outcome. The way I would have normally accessorized these clothes would have been with red stiletto heels and a clutch which would have glammed up the look a bit. However, today was about a different me so voila!
