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.
Quality: 3/5 - Style-Originality: 3/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): NA - Price: 5/5 - Value for money: 4/5

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.

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: “CIVVIES” (Posy Trudeau)

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Thursday, September 6th, 2007

Trevor Turner’s Pirate Sweater at Young Urban is at one time realistic and whimsical. If I owned this sweater in real life, I’d wear it out. Nicely textured, maybe even a little itchy looking, it features a pattern of skulls and classic sweater motifs in dark green on an olive background. This is one of my favorite pieces in my SL wardrobe.

I’ve paired the pirate sweater with another of my favorite pieces of clothing, from one of my favorite designers, FORM’s Zabitan Assia. The 010b Jeans in brown are possibly the most flattering jeans fit-wise…I find myself choosing them often. Flat front with a linen-like finish, these jeans can be dressed up or down. If you don’t have these already in your inventory, you really should pick up a pair. They’re very versatile.

Posey Trudeau’s Basic Workboots from Civvies round out this slightly rough, outdoorsy outfit. Accented with metallic eyelets and laces wound carelessly around the top, these boots look ready for a hike or a good…whatever. ;)

Another hiko Nino men’s hair selection, wolf, is long and tousled, a touch longer than I’m used to, but unquestionably handsome and masculine. Again in 15 colors for an amazing 300L. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with these Happy Dispatch packages. Even with a couple of touch-and-go colors (I haven’t had an opportunity yet present itself for light green…), the price is a real bargain.

Static Schultz’s black bandanas are so well done, it might make you want to become a bandit, just to be able to wear his mask bandana. Okay, maybe not, but the wrist bandanas make a cool accessory, especially with this sweater. He also offers a bandana tied loosely around the neck. Very realistic looking knots…I love these things. Stop by Tonic and take a look.

(Oh, and I’m wearing the flea collar I made, male version. The box contains male and female versions, both with and without particle animation fleas. :))
