She wore black velvet...


Here I am, standing in my RL classroom waiting for my kids to arrive, thinking about glamor. There are many kinds of glamor, but I think Brit really put her finger on a fine definition in the Second Mirage fashion show.

She said that her collection was inspired by Elizabeth Taylor, and I think she's right -- Miss Taylor is the epitome of 1950s Hollywood. What are the qualities of this kind of style? Perfectly coiffed hair. Satin and silk. And rich, large gems! Those 50s girls had the bling, man. Diamonds weren't just their best friends, they were their lovers, papas, and babies too!

What the hell did I just write?

Anyway. Ingenue's new Another Fundraiser skin is a perfect enhancement for Second Mirage's new collection, because the sharply drawn vintage mouth and bright blue shadow screams GLAMOR; the freebie hair from Soulfire is equally sharp and pulled-together. I'm wearing these new things with something old, ~silentsparrow's~ cyndi suit, currently on sale on the third floor of the main sim. It occurs to me that this entire ensemble is extremely cheap since it is mostly comprised of sale or free items. Go, me.
