Be hip not hep


Anorak wears Rani, a fresh-faced new look from Lilo Glom of JesyLilo. Rani features three makeups, each of which boasts a red lip. I added the pale-pink lip tattoo included in the pack because it worked better with The Secret Store’s mini-dress and Lelutka’s Bouffant hairdo. Damn I love this combo of black and blue fade.

Hey lady!

merm4xxl The Aquarius Zodiac month ends on the 13th, so you should surf over there soon if you want a nifty mermaid bra by Brutus Martinek of Pididdle. JesyLilo’s loose-fit jeans feature portholes on the outside of each leg. Why I do not know. Perhaps to show off a tattooed tangle of kelp.

duveteuxl Meanwhile, back on shore, Sopha Portal has released a new skin called Vivian. As with her other recent skins, Vivian is available in a pack with eight soft and sweet makeups. Six of these feature orange-red lips, and two, including the one I’m showing here, run to pink. I tend to think I don’t like anything named after a princess or a lapdog, but Aranel Ah’s Tiffany colour makes BOOM’s beautifully sculpted, nubbly textured Duveteux Rayonnant jacket absolutely irresistible. As far as I’m concerned, Ms. Ah has the all clear for Savannah and Felicity.

I’ll get ahead

lpdnew3x I wanted to call this post “Suck it, Armani,” but I wasn’t sure that creator Nevery Lorakeet would appreciate it. (Trendy curses don’t travel well.) Jamira is the newest ensemble from Les Petits Details. It features Ms. Lorakeet’s signature combination of a sober blouse and extravagant skirt, this one in black netting. The pieces can be bought separately in world, but not on Marketplace, where only the whole outfit is on offer. There are two variations on the ensemble, each with a different fabric for the jacket (with optional buttons). One skirt is a washed green and the other a worn brown.

cecefinal Cece is a dramatic new avatar from Jesylilo. The pack includes a slim shape (not shown) and three makeups with blazing brows. In twenty-five years of following fashion, I’ve seen several attempts to launch the bushy brow trend, which never catches on. One of the most beautiful Steven Meisel photos ever run by American Vogue depicted a naturally bushy-browed brunette in all her glory. She was never heard from again. (And I don’t mean Arizona Muse. This was well before she was born.) Do note Portia’s elegant piercing from ellabella, which features crosses where dimples ought to be. It fit right out of the box, which is rare for piercings on Portia.

celoe shoex Ever notice that your av’s most expensive shoes always get hidden under skirts? Not this time: one of them escaped.

Obviously, it’s not usually possible to have one’s skirt part magically to reveal one’s shoe. Nor is it possible to ruin the highlights of that gorgeous hairdo without special tools. Thank you GIMP.

Brings me sugar

jesybks3xx Lilo Glom of JesyLilo has turned her hand to clothing. The HotBow jumpsuit is adorable. Cuffed just below the knee, it’s decorated with a lavish bow. Ms. Glom’s beautifully textured ColdKnit Hoodie in a gentle shade of blue surprises with a pale pink bow at the back. Both items are available in other colours. I can see a Grease fan sporting the black version of the jumpsuit, which features a bold red bow just dying to be matched by a pair of saucy stilettos. Looking a little more staid, Anorak sports grey-velvet loafers, brand new from Riri Ninni at h.m.a.e.m. The loafers are also available in sapphire blue, deep red and black. They make me yearn for a smoking jacket and a cravat.

celoejesyX This lovely skin with multi-colour eyeshadow is also from Jesylilo. It’s my fave from the Cupcake series, which skews young with plenty of pink cheeks. If Anorak is looking a little uptight here, it’s because I made her wait in the lobby while I bought a pair of slutty new sandals from Celoe. I was prepared to pay 850, figured they would be 895, and quietly ponied up 950 big Ls before Anorak could realize I was spending her inheritance.

Man up

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.

I snooze

The new rotation at The Gallery Gift Shop features this awesome set of goggles by Zib Scaggs for Zibska. For a mere 75L you get a gajillion looks from the colour-change feathers, frame and lenses. (You also get the chance to annoy the inch-dicked morons who perv your av while she’s dressing. Always a joy, annoying.) Anorak’s harvest-time look features the elegantly bohemian Tabitha blouse by 22769, which is sold at TGGS with a long skrt in a dusty brown tone.

I bet you snore too.
