I’m still in a dream-state over some of the runway shows for fall. Limited as your choices in SL are, the latest releases have offered us a chance at capturing the stark elegance of the season.
One of these, Saeya Nyanda’s Wilted Wednesday Vest, is a must-have for your wardrobe. I photographed it here coupled with one of Bare Rose’s newest designs, Noble Fleur, and a glittery Paper Couture skirt to add a touch of glamour to the richly textured black of this outfit. A pair of ankle-strap stilettos would suit this look as well, and I would recommend using a different pair of black gloves.
*The Fleur brocaded coat has a set of ties up the front that may detract from the overall look, so I lowered the front of the collar to 0 in appearance mode. Click for larger versions of the photos.
Outfit: Wilted Wednesday Vest from Kyoot; Noble Fleur Seducer in Silver from Bare Rose (top, coat skirt, and arm ruffles) tinted dark grey; Undershirt from the Satin Pantsuit with Bowtie Neck by G.L.A.M; Stray Horse skirt from Paper Couture, remade into a slender, longer skirt to fit under the coat. Tights are from the Attendant outfit from Bare Rose, tinted dark grey; gloves from the “Vincent” outfit from Bare Rose, shortened. Earrings from the Muse Claris Black Pearl set in Silver.
Hair: Anisa/Anne from ETD (modified combination of both hairstyles)
Shoes: Quinn in Black from Last Call Vamp.
Cigarette holder is optional 😉
This look is vaguely reminiscent of “upscale newsboy” *laughs* Another example that monochromatic grey and black does not necessarily equate to formal or gothic. This outfit was based on the gorgeous pants from the Jersey Girl outfit by Alla Ruff. I exhausted myself looking for a pair of sleek black boots, but nothing in SL at the moment fits, so I gave up and created the pair I should have made months and months ago, of both sculpted and ordinary prims.
