Being elegant in SL is not much different from RL. I used to attend some fashion shows in SL, mainly when a stylish vainpyre who happens to be my immortal brother used to grace the runway with his pixels and I was always fascinated with what SLmodels and show producers consider(ed) to be high fashion and/or elegance. An overload of accessories, attachments, intricate prim torturing outfits (pre-mesh) on stick thin models with maxed-out boobs which would cause them serious back pain in RL (or to tip over because top heavy). To be honest, fashion shows in SL used to be my guilty pleasure, my trainwreck that I could not look away from. Elegance for me is less is more. Or like Mme Chanel used to say, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off“
Today’s skin is one of the weekend sales offers from Guapa, Marieta, worn on LeLUTKA‘s Avalon. I’m wearing Wings ER1203 hair with it, which is out now at Anthem and Tville’s Stardust eyes. I have added some freckles from the Boheme Collection from Jack Spoon and I am wearing here the Tattered sweater from Tres Blah
Beautiful skin doesn’t need much, so I went with Goreglam Dior eyeshadow, which I made slightly less opaque because I wanted it a bit lighter than the full 100% version, and my lipstick, oh my lipstick, is from Nuve, the Glam Lipstick Chic from Anthem, which is also available in a Gothic version. She should have called it Chicstick because it’s so gorgeous and flawless and chic.
Nothing says elegance like a high waist pencil skirt, which I am wearing in a knit version here from Stories & Co. Weekend sales, so the min set of 4 colours per body type is only 60L$! You don’t need to spend a fortune to look like a million dollar! To keep it semi casual, instead of a crisp shirt, I decided to go with this cropped sweater from Reign, but to glam it up with Yummy‘s Holiday party set, Pure Poison‘s Lady Pumps, and a simple tote from DDL… There, that is all.
