yellow party kitten

This look was a lot of fun. I promised myself to only play style diary for an hour but time flies! >_<

It all started with the Paper Couture mens outfit called ‘Plaid Casual’ but this look is pretty formal for the local hipster attending a fancy party. Kind of like how those South Park creators walked down the red carpet in J-Lo’s green bewb dress. Mind you they are hairy men with growing beer bellies. This outfit is like that in terms of statement except way less extreme. That is of course if the party is going to be super posh and you expect the other men to be penguins. — If you’re going to the prom with the cool kids then this is a fun get-up. Your parents will say “Is that how you want to remember your prom or [insert important event here] for the rest of your life?” and you respond “Hell fucking yes, Mother!”. Oh, and edited the pants to become shorts and put baggy in Appearance Mode to max. Here’s a picture of the South Park guys for your private pleasure and a funny penguin suit cartoon:

Fashion is not wearing the J-Lo dress as a man and not looking mundane like a pengiun.

It’s in-between the two. You figure out the rest.

(EDIT: Unless you’re a fabulous tranny or drag queen)

The boom box by FNKY (called “BigBass Boombox” aka “Big ASS BoomBox”) I’ve had in combo with this PC outfit for a while now and today I had the opportunity to show it off. I went back to UBU (AGAIN!) this time pick up the PornStar high lace boots. Since it has a gazillion different options (maybe like 30×3) today we added some polka-dots and made the laces yellow and voila! Hip hair from Armidi cover half your face because everyone will be flirting with you and you want to drive them mad by hiding your eyes and with a little extra more with Armidi sunglasses. Which I own in like five colors because they are too awesome to just own one.

Now, I know what you were first thinking when you saw this style post. Either: “Wow, that’s a lot of yellow.” or “Wow, that’s a lot of pussy.” If you thought the first part, yellow is totally acceptable in spring. Kick it! If you noticed the pussy, then this Mean White Kitty is just uber and you need him. He has a million different poses (ok, maybe like ten) that he randomly goes through including licking his nuts or scratching you or your friends eyes out if they dare touch him (not shown). The package also comes with one black and one white kitten which makes it the perfect friendship bracelet in prim-kitty-kat form.

Cheers!

Fall Coats; Seregel for Marc Cain F/W 07.08 Ad Campaign

Posted by Caliah Lyon on September 25, 2007

Fall Coats

Left: Kats Coat in Black, by Antonia Marat, Artilleri; Sweetheart Cloche in Black/Black, by Siyu Suen, Illusions; Torino Bag in Onyx, Paper Couture; Red Leather Gloves from the Natascha Coat in Grey by Shai Delacroix, Casa del Shai; Hose from the Women’s Power Suit in Charcoal, Blaze; Aileen Shoes in Black, by Lyra Muse, Last Call Vamp; Celine Pearl Necklace in Black Pearl/White Crystal/Gold, Celine Pearl Drop Earrings in Black Pearl/Gold, and Ariane Ring in Gold (diamond changed to black pearl) from Muse. Hair: Vivian in Tawny, ETD.

Middle: Natascha Trench Coat in Red and Grey Leather Gloves, Casa Del Shai; Scarf (Electric Bugaloo) from Gritty Kitty (Block Party Exclusive), tinted black; Nea-Ban Fabulous sculpted shades; Melisande boots in Onyx, Last Call Vamp; Celine Pearl Drop Earrings in Black Pearl/Silver, and Ariane Ring in Diamond/Silver, Muse. Hair: River in Iron, Maitreya.

Right: Audrey Coat in Cranberry by Kat Palmer, Immortelle; Bucket Hat (hair removed, reattached to chin) by Alla Ruff, Veschi; Disco Blitz Scarf in Purple from the Disco Blitz tops (store freebie) by Relika Itamae, Relika; Skirt prims (attached to stomach) and glitch pants (tinted black) from the Stray Horse outfit, Paper Couture; Black Leather gloves from Tete a Pied; Hose in Brown by Blaze (from the 13-colour bundle); Black High Heels and Black Pearl Drops (from the River Stone set) by Paper Couture. Hair: Aveda Short Crop in Cinder, ETD.

These coats have been posted about rather often on the Fashion Planet feed, but I wished to include them in my look book with a few accessories, and I was a little late in posting. Of the Artilleri Kats Coats, my favourites are predictably the snow leopard and this, in simple, classic black, both of which I immediately bought upon release; I was very happy with the fit of the prim skirt and the texturing on these coats. Both of Shai’s Natascha coats are must-haves, and I was almost sorry to wear this scarf over the lapel and button detailing.

Nea-Ban

Of the accessories available now, I spent several days wearing this pair of sunglasses from Nea-Ban. It’s mod and therefore tintable, and goes with almost everything. I’m waiting for them to come out with sculptie retro frames. As far as hats go, I’m fairly conservative in comparison to hat gurus like Mariya Nesiote *grins* but the two above are very easy to match with many of the fall coats. Siyu’s cloche is certainly one of my favourites now, and very affordable, while the Veschi hat is 50% off the usual price, so make sure to pay them a visit.

I’d been looking at this ad campaign for Marc Cain by Seregel (highlighted in many forums and blogs) for a few days and wanted to share the photos. The clothes are simple but lovely, and the lighting works very well with the colours. Click for larger versions.
