LOCATION: ::breath::


I was wearing this outfit last night at a sim where I tend to socialize a little, and a guy I'd never spoken to before came up to me to offer an interesting fashion critique.  "Look at you, trying to rock that vintage thing," he said.  "Yes," I replied, even though I don't think this look is particularly vintage, nor was I trying.  "Why the granny hair, though?  And the witch makeup?" he asked.  "I like it," was my curt reply.  And so I do.  Really, though, people who are still wearing outfits from SL circa 2007 really shouldn't throw pixel shade, am I right? ;)  Annnnyway, I'm sort of fond of this thing where I mix something really structured and classy, like the Maitreya skirt, with something a little wild and edgy, like the LWL vest.  Both items are really, really well made.  The shading on the Maitreya skirt is so impressive, in particular.  It's always a let down to buy a piece of clothing that basically has no textures and looks like it's been flood-filled in paintshop pro.  You'll never, ever get that with Maitreya, though.  A little note about the location: Breath is a men's shop, and I was lurking around their lucky board when I ventured upstairs and found this little paparazzi prop (see pic 1).  How much fun is that?  I couldn't resist using it for at least one photo!  Thanks, Breath.
