Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day: “Accessory Arsenal,” “KR,” “Philotic Energy,” “SF Designs,” “Young Urban”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Special Event | Monday, February 4th, 2008

Decided on putting together a hiking outfit after getting these new hiking boots by swaffette Firefly. The boots come in three sizes, much appreciated by those of us with smaller avatars. I spent my first months on SL looking like a clown, finally settling for primless shoes, so smaller sizes are welcome. With the boots, you can get six colors of ankle socks with sculpty cuffs, for free.

The next most important piece to ensure that a hike is safe and successful is a decent backpack, filled with essentials just in case one gets lost in the wilderness. I’d seen this pack a while ago at Accessory Arsenal and after reaching into the recesses of my memory, remembered the sim it was located in (but couldn’t remember the name of the shop!), tp’d with my fingers crossed and found the place still there. It’s a wonderful backpack, beautifully textured, very realistic looking but still whimsical. (I love the Hershey bar tucked into the side.) It was a little hard to adjust so the straps looked right, but not too bad. Comes with a flashlight and a walking stick (not pictured).

The green plaid shirt from Young Urban is a nice sportshirt, comfortable and broken in. Very reasonably priced at 80L, it’s worth tossing in your inventory for a casual option. It comes in short sleeves (untucked on the jacket layer), with prim cuffs (not shown), or long-sleeve, tucked on the shirt layer (but pretty short if you’re wearing low-rise pants) and untucked on the jacket layer.

The white capri pants from KR (also available in black) come with prim side pockets (I didn’t attach them) and prim cuffs (shown). I like the cords on the cuffs a lot, and the pants look natural, with good detail and shading. A bit on the expensive side at 250L.
Quality: 4/5 - Style-Originality: 4/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 3/5 - Price: 2/5 - Value for money: 3/5

Finished up the outfit with Aemilia Case’s “Mykal” in Auburn, messy and casual and easy to manage while outdoors; and a cool watch by Fim Fischer.

Nouveau chez / New at “Philotic Energy” & “SF Designs”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Costume, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, January 12th, 2008

Introducing today the “SFD Celtic Leather” outfit by Swaffette Firefly for SF Designs. As usual at SF designs, you will get many items in the pack you will buy. Here you will have 2 pair of pants, normal rise (shown) and low rise, each of them on the pants and underpants layer, the last one to wear with pants inside boots, two jackets (open and closed), a sleeve filler on the shirt layer to give some volume to the sleeves, plus many attachments: buckles for cuffs and front jacket, open and closed collar, plus collar flap to wear with the open jacket. Each of them is offered in two presized versions. Everything is moddable and copyable. This complete outfit comes in 6 colors: Red, Black, Pewter, Bronze, Copper (all shown) and in Purple. Each color pack is sold for a very fair 270 Lindens.

Also new, the last hair from “Philotic Energy,” which includes goggles on the forehead, for a different look. Aemilia Case has been working a lot on the fitting of this hair to different head forms, so you should be able to fit this new hair very easily! As usual, the price is very reasonable and you could get your favorite color for 150 Lindens.

To go along with this outfit, I chose the “g2″ facial hair option of “Minnu Model Skin” Gen 3 for men in light tan, a masculine and sexy 3 millimeters long goatee in a healthy but not overtanned look, and the always good Engineer boots by Mai Runo for “0 Number”.

Nouveau chez / New at “Casa Del Shai” (Shai Delacroix) & “SF Designs” (Swaffette Firefly)

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

“Carlitos is an inspired piece of woolen threads. A long thick grey cardigan to warm you through the crisp breeze. Comes in a Jacket Layer with a prim flexi coat tail, the cardigan is a study in layering with a mottled grey mock turtleneck shirt and topped with a woolen flexi scarf.” designer Shai Delacroix for Casa del Shai said.
This is a beautiful way to face the cold!
I chose Shai’s one of the Fall Classic Denim to go along with that cardigan, and serious boots from Zero Number by Mai Runo.
The beanie from SF Designs (Swaffette Firefly) is scriptable, you can modify by menu the hair color!
I chose it in black, many colors are available. 100 Lindens each, it’s a gift!
