I always love getting sent gifties off Boom, Mysteria or even Piddle because I know that it’s gonna be good. So I tried on the shorts and shirt, oo’d over the bag and then put it all away. Since I’ve got so much left on my Boom Credit I decided it’s time to haul ass and see whats new and this is my “goto” winter outfit.
I have an almost identical pair of those trousers in RL (although not as flared!) and although I don’t walk around with my navel so exposed I know that with a woolie or in this case a jacket they can look so great not only in SL but RL. The trousers are called “Norfolk Tweeds” and there is a complete range of colours from winter/autumnal colours to pastels and creams. All of course come as demos and even fat packs. The jacket is whats got me because it comes from the Cartel Collection which I wasn’t sure if it was a boom design or if I could use my store credit and happily I could. I just knew that this zingy orange coat (full name is Chinese Short Coat in Firework) would look stunning with the trousers or even just jeans. Such an unique look that stands out from the crown. A total of 4 colours in this style of jacket but there are other jackets in a similar vein with more colour options. This is a strange one because “one size fits all” and as far as I can tell that’s exactly the case.
Now look closely at the hair. Faith managed to blog the previous Mina hair before me so as soon as I got this I sent her a note which said something along the lines of “back off the Mina hair Biatch”. Mina isn’t of course the only hair I love in SL but what I love most about her hairs is the colouring. She does everything from the more sedate blondes to the extreme gingers and all the colours in between. Her hair is like a great RL hair dye job in that there are so many colours blended together to make the overall colour. This one is called Josje and I’ve used a different shade in each picture but please be brave and try out ALL of the colours before you make your choice because you maybe suprised at how good some of the colours you normally wouldn’t have looked at previously can look.
PS don’t forget to check out the upstairs there is a particularly lovely windy hair and hat up there which I am buying right now.
