Second Life Fashion from ReadMeri – Objets

objets

Good day to you all! Wednesday has arrived and I’m typing to you today with a towel wrapped around my head, turban style, as I put off the inevitable half an hour with a hair dryer and another 10 with my straighteners. At this very moment, nature is drying my hair into a style similar to Marge Simpson’s. I be a cone head.

I was thinking about the things I find beautiful and would like to see more of and none of them were to be found in museums or galleries.  People talk about objets d’art, but things of value aren’t what really get my motor running. I like all kinds of things but one of them I can actually use as a fashion tip which might be useful.

I like buttons. I like their shape, varying sizes and colours, I like the clickety sound they make as you put your hand in and they collide with each other. I bought a coat a few years ago, a really interesting single-breasted, knee length, tapestry type coat, but it had uglee, cheap, fake brass buttons on it. I went and chose some new buttons for it, replaced the originals and hey presto! I had an individual item. It also looked more vintage than it had done.

A lot of high street, modern clothes come with shitty buttons. Cast them aside fashion lovers, and choose something more befitting.

About:

I cannot imagine how much work Besom put into their collection for Epiphany this round. Here is yet another gorgeous new hair with hat called Wish. This can be found in the Witchy Gacha at Epiphany until 15 November.

RealEvil’s brand new Alice Leather pants were a creation for Shiny Shabby this round. They come in Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass and Belleza Venus, Isis and Freya. A lot of lovely colour and metal accent combinations make these pants a great investment and the butt is lovely too.

Here’s some more pics including a ‘well lit, no shit’ shot. Click to see them larger.

 

Finally, here’s my jigging for the rigging. If anything breaks free in this ensemble, it’s going to take more than new buttons to get back in.

  1. I always remember my mum having a huge box of buttons for her sewing, some sets were really beautiful and taken off vintage apparel she’d found in the market which she would then reuse if the garments were too tatty.
