Go Tigers!

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Miha, soleil, milk (My Second Wardrobe)
Makeup:  Insufferable Dastard;  Fade gloss, grungy 6 (Grunge Soul Project)
Hair: Elikatira;  Charmed, blonde 07
Shirt:  LouLou&Co;  Tigers, red
Jeans:  RedMint;  Jeans, No. 3 cuffs
Shoes:  Clutter;  Merribeth sneakers, Kat is Boring

I actually had to reshoot this look three times!  The first time was my fault.  I didn’t notice the pose I was using made it look like the shoulders were sloping downward and I had that lollipop shape going on.  Even though I’ve been using different shapes and skins in my blog pictures, that wasn’t the look I was going for.

The second time, SL was having a nervous breakdown and all the shots came out black, which I didn’t notice until three days later when I went to edit them.  Grrr, hate it when that happens.

Third time was the charm.  Though I would have tried as many times as it took because I totally love this shirt.  Its something I’d wear myself in RL either around the house or running errands.  I also love the combination of the Al Vulo skin and lip makeup layer from Insufferable Dastard too.

Timeless Classics: Mimikri

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 10
Hair:  Truth;  Sonya, champagne, streaked
Dress & Gloves:  Mimikri;  Diva
Shoes:  Donna Flora;  Milva, black & silver
Earrings:  LaGyo;  Moonlight earrings

There are a few clothing creators that truly understand fashion and know how to make items that will have lasting appeal and wearability.  One of these is the designer behind Mimikri.

I’m not sure of the actual creation date of this outfit or when it became available.  I do know that I acquired it almost exactly three years ago.  And after three years, its still in my inventory.  And not only is it still in my inventory, I still wear it, like I did here last Friday evening.

I have several pieces of Mimikri still in my inventory from around the same time that I do still wear.  I consider them well-crafted and classic.  With a little work of making a skirt-shape, the system skirt can still look fabulous.
