Delicate flowers

puffoutx Black and pink. Black and mauve. There’s no good reason for them to work together. Unless you’re a toreador or a torch singer. Collabor88 continues to be the best of the 87 monthly events a fashionista must attend. The dress from (fd) and the boots from Ison are an odd combo, but Anorak’s an odd av. The Ison boots require Slink’s medium bare feet. With the exception of Lolas, the prospect of adding mesh enhancements to my av makes me feel like taking a nap. I persevered this week, however, because the boots are so sexy. I feel very frustrated by how big the feet are. They make my nit-picky arty eye all itchy. Is there a resize function I can’t find? Are the phat azzes and loud mouths also huge? If they are as enormous as the feet…well…let’s just say it’s a damn good thing that boobs can never be too big!

Nevery Lorakeet’s latest skirt and blouse combo is called Alessia, and is only available in greyed black and pearl-pink set. The blouse is puff-sleeved and the skirt is textured like, erm, like the skin of an animal that did not die to make this outfit. The flowers did not die. The fur did not die. The only thing killed for this post was a half-dozen donut holes.

I adore the Origami Sandals by e-clipse, a line that always surprises me with its unusual offerings at Limited Bazaar. The shoe is a gold-edged black platform thong worn with a black sock. (Special to Limited Bazaar: I liked it when you and TDR Fusion opened rounds on alternate Fridays. Now that you are synced up I will have nothing to look forward to on half the Fridays of my life. Please change back.)

Rising star

The new Star of Venus ballgown by Sion Pearl for MetaTheodora would do any diva proud. The rigged mesh gown is one piece: an articulated metal corset with glowing hoops over a floor-length green skirt. The resizable nipple covers and resizable helmet and the gauntlets are all separate pieces, which your av could pair with a latex catsuit for work or with jeans for girls night out.

Try as I might, I could not get a full-length shot of Portia when I went on location to Hangars Liquides. Here she is relaxing in her trailer between takes.

The offerings for the new round of Euphoria’s Limited Bazaar are so fantastic that I wanted to call this post “Fu*k yes.” The theme is menswear. Portia’s avant-gardey suit from E-Clipse and her colour-blocked coat from Diram are only two of the stylish, discounted buys. Remember that Limited Bazaar features limited quantities. If you want these, go as soon as you finish reading every precious word of this post.

Lilo Glom of JesyLiLo is doing two fabulous skins for winter events. This is Gül Buz, which will be available at the Frost Fair as of December 12th. When I slipped on this skin, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Gül Buz is a sophisticated and polished beauty. On the other hand, Portia’s hair, Valerie 2, is wonderfully disheveled, courtesy MissAllSunday Lemon of Wasabi Pills. Valerie 2 is the sequel to a neatly coiffed version, and both are available at the new Collabor88.

Zima, the other lovely new skin from JesyLiLo, is available until December 15 at The Winter Fair. For Zima, Ms. Glom has designed glossy lipsticks in a range of colours that cover bold and pale looks. Portia’s mesh eyes are new from Clemmm. The haunting periwinkle shade is speckled with white lights.

I saw a coat like this in a real-life ad and hoped against hope that I’d be able to buy it in SL. Thank you, Diram! Take note of Portia’s multi-colour boots, which are a Paperbag item at the Singer Icon Fair, until December 13th. The pack also provides a version with silver toes, and the boots are available in other colours.
